Well I generally considered Criterion Collection to be something of a seal of quality but seeing they've added Armageddon I guess that's right out.

Bach's Prelude No. 1, played on boomwhackers. (Boomwhackers are a kind of plastic tube, tuned to make a note when you hit them.) It's silly but also extremely impressive.

This is much more impressive than the usual videos of a group sitting chairs and just swapping out their own to hit different notes.

Hello, this is Highway from Grylliade.org with...

Chef John with Food Wishes!

That's right, it's a Youtube cooking channel... where all of the videos are presented in the same way... with Chef John's singsong voice... and a lot of interesting recipes and tips. So with that, even though I found it a bit annoying at the beginning, I now find that it's worth watching... and as you watch more of them, you really catch on to the fact that Chef John is very aware of his schtick... and is very good at it, with similar puns in each one that you start looking for... and making good commentary on what happened while he was cooking the demonstration.

And that's it! It's a very entertaining channel... and the style of the videos hasn't changed in 10 years...which makes it easy to watch any of them without worrying about them being bad or good. And if you don't like them, that's fine. After all, you are the Ice Cube of your YouTube. So I really do hope that you give this a try soon... and as always...

Enjoy!

I've tried watching a few of the Food Wishes vids before, and yeah, that guy's sing-song voice where every other sentence sounds like a question is too fucking annoying.

The only food channel I watch nowadays is Kenji Lopez-Alt's.

Yeah I couldn't make it through even one dessert. The fun of Gourmet Makes was watching her struggling with it. Now she's just another video chef, and the world don't need any more of them.

Good quick analysis video of the United flight out of Denver this past weekend whose engine went kablooey.

This is a worthwhile YouTube find. Though I'd dearly like to throttle the yokel that distorted the aspect ratio.

Apparently the house where the front ring of the nacelle cowling landed was the super for the building where my company has its main office.

Also is there anything more German than being excited about checklists?

It took me back to my nuke reactor training days.

Adding another zero past the decimal point.

German officers and supply sergeants surely had umpteen checklists for moving all those people and supplies.
