As some of you may know, I am a bit of a fan of the IdeasofFireAndIce channel on YouTube. Lots of good info on various book, film, and TV series there combined with goofy and downright intense readings from Sci Fi and fantasy books. Well, the creator Quinn recently decided to post a picture of himself showing off his…
The brilliant Lindsay Ellis has come out with what is perhaps her magnum opus: “YouTube: Manufacturing Authenticity (for Fun and Profit!).” It’s an in-depth look at how content creation on YouTube works, with an interview with Hank Green, and a look at two cake channels.

I watch a lot of YouTube videos. A lot. So I figured: why not roundup the best pop-culture video essays I’ve found in the most recent weeks so you don’t have to go searching for them?
This...this is a thing of beauty.
Lindsay Ellis is a great internet reviewer. She has done videos on Rent, Beauty and the Beast, Mel Brooks, Pocahontas, and an entire series on Transformers.

Some of the older hands here will remember Observation Deck regular Noise. I just found out he’s started a YouTube vlog called Spaceflight Tonight, where he discusses and tries to answer questions about, duh, spaceflight. His initial entry is short but pretty informative. Give it a try if you’re so inclined!
I found it by chance when I was looking up instructions on canning and pickling, of all things. It called PublicResourceOrg. It’s a collection of videos, from back in the day, that cover everything from treating gardens for bugs to ionizing radiation safety. There are selections from The National Archives, Federal…
Hey everyone! Long time no see! I decided just before the New Year that among my many resolutions, I wanted to start up “SeeBonnyDraw” again, a YouTube art series I’ve been managing for some time now.
The last video I had posted to the channel was almost half a year ago, when I compiled a video showcasing the 100…
The British Museum in London has created four pilot youtube shows and wants you to vote on which will go into production. You can vote by clicking the like button on the one you prefer (or more than one, just don’t vote for all four) and have until the 23rd of December to do it.
...Should have ended
Well hell. It’s been way too long since I did one of these, so I guess it’s about time. Hope you enjoy!
An Awesome short film
We all know Super Mario 3D World is super rad. Just how rad is it? YouTuber Mark Brown took a look at the modern classic for his semi-regular "Game Maker's toolkit" video series, and makes a case for putting 3D World in the time-honored "totally hella rad" category. That might not be the name of an actual honorific.
