Can we keep this on topic please?

:coolface:

So I watch quite a few and thought I would post the links in case anyone is interested in one of the topics. Will add to it over time. Feel free to add if you come across anything interesting (EDIT: if you could give a brief description that would be cool).

I'm not saying they're all worth watching, but I personally found them interesting. You probably will not.


http://www.youtube.c...h?v=5SaFTm2bcac - Short documentary about the Amen break (the world's most important 6-sec drum loop)

http://www.youtube.c...feature=related - short documentary about the Roland TB-303 synth

http://www.youtube.c...h?v=ObJTAiR5E8I - old ITV "an audience" with Eubank and Benn before one of their fights, hosted by Jonathon Ross.

http://www.youtube.c...h?v=Rt6uWZpIiMY - Prog rock britannia, from the BBC, basically a documentary about prog rock from it's foundations to it's downfall

http://www.youtube.c...h?v=4Z9WVZddH9w - Zeitgeist: Moving forward. It's about the monetary system, human life, politics and futurism

http://www.youtube.c...h?v=iQZ9wXO8RVs - The King of Kong - documentary about a rivalry between players trying to get the highest score on Donkey Kong (and other games)

http://www.youtube.c...h?v=UjnWX50UDJE - The rise and fall of WCW - about the growth and eventual death of World Championship Wrestling

Watched a couple of True Story episodes this week
http://www.discovery.../episode-guide/

The Master and Commander and Braveheart one specifically. Pretty light going but interesting none the less.

I like these (Penn & Teller Bullshit series):
http://www.youtube.c...47l925l8.3l11l0

Can be hard to find complete episodes, and it's kinda tongue-in-cheek a lot of the time, but usually interesting nonetheless.

Going more with the Wu theme:

TED Talks are also interesting:

I remember that Eubank and Benn when it was first aired on TV, wasnt Ross trying to antagonise them both... Been a while.

These two are brilliant, love you for sharing them.

edit: the second led me to loads of 303 videos which I now intend to spend the majority of the rest of tonight watching. Awesome.

This is the best video I have seen on Youtube this year and it's important and you should watch it. Even though it's full of 'douchebag' Americans.


edit: I don't support giving to the charity invisiblechildren.org, because http://visiblechildren.tumblr.com/ but this Kony fella is a fuck and he should be murdered horribly.

NAZI

Harvard lecture on justice, this is part 1 of twelve and discusses the morality of murder. About an hour long, but worth every minute.

Mary Bell documentary. Mary bell killed two children when she was a child herself. This is really interesting. You should watch it if you have an hour spare.

The Khan Academy stuff is brilliant, there's lots and lots of similar vids of just about everything under the sun (started off with maths but covers a wide range of stuff now).

Some stuff about the creator (Salmon Khan) here: http://www.youtube.c...l645l4j1j1l6l0.

The Khan Academny website is here: http://www.khanacademy.org/
