Top 3 Favorite YouTube Channels

Top 3 Favorite YouTube Channels
Marketing Land

Since I am in a "list making kind of mood," whatever that means, I decided an interesting theme for a list is YouTube Channels. I will make this list short and to the point like my last list, "Music to Check Out From 2015," describing three channels I am subscribed to because they are either interestingly informative or just really funny and make consistent content. Below each description is a link to each of their YouTube channels.

Nostalgia Critic

The Nostalgia Critic, played by Doug Walker, is a fictional character who spends much of his time reviewing old movies. The interesting aspect to his reviews are that all the movies he reviews are infamous for being poorly done or just plain bad. In each episode his curiosity gets the best of him, remembering fondly how he once enjoyed a film as a kid only to revisit it and realize it is terrible. Each episode, the Nostalgia Critic takes his viewers through a twenty minute adventure of nostalgia, rage, rants, and humor. Though he might come off as abrasive, rash, and critical, the Nostalgia Critic's contrasting and redeeming qualities are reliability, great humor, and the ability to analyze movies in extreme detail.

The Needle Drop

The Needle Drop, a.k.a. "the Internets busiest music nerd," a.k.a. "the best teeth in the game," is a music reviewer, vlogger, and actor, named Anthony Fantano. The Needle Drop reviews a vast array of music, ranging from black metal all the way to radio pop. What makes Fantano and his opinions interesting is he is consistent in his video quality, provides critical analysis of albums, and is educated in the field of music and the industry. With each review he provides an "arbitrary" score at the end of the video, summing up his overall feelings on the album. His reviews can range from quick five minute pieces to in depth twenty minute discussions. I suggest his channel if you are looking for someone who can appropriately distance themselves and objectively, to an extent, critique albums.

The Nerdwriter

The Nerdwriter, created by Evan Puschak, is a channel I have recently subscribed to and fell in love with quickly due to the interesting topics discussed on the channel. Each video goes into an in depth discussion on pieces of literature, art, music, politics, and film. The titles of his videos range from "Inside Out - Emotional Theory Comes Alive" to "Why Donald Trump Is A Gift To Democracy." Each video is under ten minutes which allows The Nerdwriter to present his subject, state his point, explain, and wrap it up, all while maintaining the viewers attention. This channel is a weekly web series that proclaims to "cultivate worldview" and accomplishes this amazingly.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
