So it occurred to me recently that I forgot television exists because it's stupid and old and there's Youtube. Now, because I already have a backlog of videos I've been meaning to watch and I need to make it longer I'm wondering what channels/entertainers you guys follow so I can add more. So here's the idea, post one video by your favorite Youtubers (I hate that term) so everyone can enjoy stuff. Mine are

Egoraptor


Jon Tron


Game Grump (spoiler it's Egoraptor with Jon Tron/spiolars)


Dunkey


Two Best Friends Play (plus Woolie)


CommunityChannel

bonus


Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand I'm just gonna go ahead and post one of @UPSLynx favorites and save him the trouble.

    Excellent list @Canti, I subscribe to most of those myself. I'll add to it..


    Ze Frank (zefrank1) - Ze is a brilliant online entertainer, and has been doing it for years. Literally. One of his projects was to do a daily video podcast for a year. Both witty and thought-provoking, he's constantly challenging his viewers to participate in outgoing ways. Can't recommend him enough. @UPSLynx will agree.




    Cr1TiKaL (penguinz0) - love this guy (thanks to @UPSLynx, again). He does both "Let's Play" style (he calls it "Gameplay and Commentary") that usually focuses on obscure games, as well as miscellaneous humor. His monotone voice is his callsign, as well as his off-the-wall crude humor. Also, he donates all his Google AdSense revenue to charity.




    Nerd³ (OfficialNerdCubed) - another great "Let's Play" commentary with unassuming wit and genuine interest in games. And a British-sounding accent. His humor style is just plain fun.




    Vsauce - this guy answers questions that we all wonder but rarely ask aloud. For example, just recently I was wondering what would happen if the sun just vanished instantaneously. Sure enough, Vsauce addresses this very question: he walks you through the answer... WITH SCIENCE!

    @CANTI J-J-J-J-WOW!

    I had totally forgotten about that 'spot the difference game' video Canti posted and I almost spit out my coffee watching it. I love that one so much.

    I have to second Robbaz, ZeFrank, and Dunkey. Seriously, those are some of the few channels I make a point to watch every video from. But mostly ZeFrank. Seriously, watch his channel. Thought provoking, smart, hilarious, and fascinating all in one.

    You might have seen videos rolling around Facebook from that "lol funny stuff 4 real" page your friend's sister likes and shares all the time with videos like "sad cat Diary". That's actually ZeFrank, which of course goes stolen and uncredited on those crappy facebook pages.

    A few of my favorites not already mentioned:

    Vlogbrothers
    These two brothers were HUGE fans of ZeFrank when he did his original "The Show" in 05. When that ended, these guys decided to go a year only communicating with one another via video blogs. Similar to ZeFrank's style, they created their own culture and terminology on their show, and amassed a large audience. Six years later these guys are still going, though in a slightly different format. They've grown incredibly and now host a yearly con, known as VideoCon, for internet video producers. Their topics are genuine, interesting, intelligent, and hilarious. There's too much backlog to watch if you've already started, but just jump in and enjoy the ride, you won't regret it. Also, they made an FAQ video for new viewers, so this is a good place to start.


    Boulevard Brewing
    Icrontic's favorite brewery has a really great channel. Interesting videos, behind the scenes looks, and beer tasting videos.


    Maddox, the Best Show in the Universe
    Maddox of 'The Best Page in the Universe' fame has a YouTube channel now. It's exactly what you'd expect - crude, unapologetic, and hilarious. Probably offensive to most, but if you liked his site, you'll like his videos.


    rnickeyMouse
    This one's for the car/motorcycle buffs of Icrontic. This guy goes to the 2mile stretch on the world famous Mullholland Highway known as 'the snake' and shoots supercars and bikes at the hairpin at the summit. He mostly favors bikes, but also has supercar videos, and has captured tons of wipeouts. This road is 10 minutes from where I live, and it is the best driver's road I've ever had the pleasure of driving.


    Speedracer38
    Another one for car fans - this guy has the best job in the world. As a professional automotive photographer, he has video of some of the most rare and interesting cars in the world - both inside and out!

    Also, totally forgot about this one.

    Samuel Adams Beer
    The brewery needs no introduction - but most people don't realize how amazing their YouTube channel is. Full of Jim Koch talking about the brewery, beer tasting videos, and behind the scenes looks. A must-sub if you're a beer fan.

    The Lizzie Bennett diaries are done now, but they're fantastic, especially if you're a fan of Jane Austen (but delightful even if you aren't)

    The Jenna Marbles channel has some pretty fun bits too, although I certainly disagree with her opinions at times. She should really just stick to the funny stuff.

    I can go on for another 5 maybe but I won't. It's mostly animators that I think are hilarious and Dark Souls players/SPESS. Never really been into the whole Let's Play thing just don't find them funny. (Except maybe Game Grumps now that Danny Sexbang is involved <3 Ninja Sex Party)

    Here's a great channel for all you malt heads:

    Ralfy's whisk(e)y reviews


    Ralfy is an Irishman who loves whisky and has an outstanding taste palette, and one day he decided to start doing whisky reviews on YouTube. He's now done over 380 reviews, and every one of them are extremely insightful and well spoken. He's currently doing a run through US Bourbons and has actually managed to teach me way more about bourbon than I ever thought he would.
