One of the Best YouTube Explanations for the ‘Hikikomori’ Phenomenon

October 23, 2016 3 comments

Recently came across a very good explanation of the ‘Hikikomori’ phenomenon from a YouTube blogger who has made some very good videos about living in Japan. I was particularly impressed about how he explains the difference between ‘Hikikomori’ and other similar sounding phenomena like ‘Herbivore Men’ and ‘MGTOW’. FYI- It is almost 30 minutes long.

A Pretty Good YouTube Spoof about Hillary Clinton: Sep 28, 2016

September 28, 2016 3 comments

Here is a pretty good, and actually quite deep, spoof about Hillary Clinton. And yes.. I know that it is by Jenna Marbles- but look at the quality of content not the creator.

The spoof skewers HRCs pathetic and sad attempts to get millennials to vote for her. It also lampoons her health issues, general elitism, canned lawyerly responses to questions and general inability to talk convincingly about issues most people actually care about. Best of all, it goes after her sense of entitlement for becoming president.

Interesting YouTube Channel: Forgotten Weapons

August 15, 2016 Leave a comment

It is no secret that the quality of content made by amateurs and semi-professionals on YouTube now routinely exceeds the crap produced by the “professionals” on network TV and even many cable channels. As many of you know, I am interested in technology of all sorts- especially the history of innovation in those areas (both successful and failed ideas) that led to where we are now.

I first came across a YouTube channel on rare firearms, especially prototypes, 2-3 years ago. At that time it was were mostly 10-15 minute clips about the history and mechanisms of somewhat uncommon guns. It has become even better since them and a lot of content on that channel, uploaded over previous year, is very good.

“Family Guy” Predicted the Truck Attack in Nice, France

July 16, 2016 15 comments

Here is a short YouTube clip from an older episode of the cartoon show ‘Family Guy’ depicting a scenario rather similar to the July 14 Truck Attack in Nice, France. I will write my thoughts about that incident and the unsuccessful alleged “coup” in Turkey in the near future.

A Couple of Especially Accurate YouTube Parodies about Hillary Clinton

April 2, 2016 1 comment

Recently, I came across a number of scarily accurate parodies about Hillary Clinton on YouTube. It is worth noting that the channels producing these parodies have a strong progressive ideological bent- suggesting that a large number of younger generation in the USA are incapable of seeing Hillary as anything other than a calculating and greedy robot.

Here are two examples..

Clip 1: Hillary Clinton’s Lena Dunham Strategy (Above Average)

Clip 2: What’s Inside Hillary Clinton’s Pockets (CollegeHumor)

Satiristic YouTube Clip: A Jeb in Winter

February 9, 2016 Leave a comment

The embedded YouTube clip contains a very clever and well done lampooning of the now obviously doomed presidential campaign of Jeb Bush. I saw it on the first episode of Samantha Bee’s new late-night show. While many other people have previously commented on Jeb’s lack of personality, this particular clip mocks it in a way that almost makes you feel sorry for that guy.
