Post up any and all youtube channels you recommend here ^_^.

While I like the popular stuff like Markiplier, Game Grumps and such, here's some channels I personally like that many people may have not heard of yet.

The Super Best Friends: An LP channel with 4 players Matt, Pat, Woolie and Liam. I got into these guys mostly because it's the very rare LP channel that plays and likes games that I'm into. Stuff like Platinum Games, JoJo, anime, wrestling, and the like. Plus they have a pretty bitchin podcast every week. They have a pretty fun community as well such as animators (which they often bring in to do video intros) fan artists and compilation videos. Often times they have themed months or weeks like Boxing Week, Rustlemania (all wrestling games), Shitstorm of Scariness and Mechaweek. Also if you're a fan of fighting games, every friday they have either a Friday Night Fisticuffs (where they play awesome fighters) or Saturday Morning Scrublords (in which they play the bad ones).

Maximilian Dood: Speaking of fighting games. This channel's a fighting game centric one. Max's channel is the thing that got me into actually PLAYING fighting games legitimately (as in actually learning and not just mashing buttons). Most of his videos generally come from his streams on twitch that he chops up into Week Ofs. However he also often does small skits as well as news updates. But more importantly are the Assist Me videos which are part skits and part fighting game tutorials. Because of his place in the FGC, he's been hired by Iron Galaxy to help with video editing and story writing for Killer Instinct and often commentates on Killer Instinct tournaments during EVO or World Cup. He also has another channel called Yo-Video games.

Mother's Basement: The Professional Shitbag. This dude does some pretty interesting analysis videos on Anime OPs and EDs generally pointing out moments of foreshadowing and small little details as well as analyzing animation. If I had to recommend a specific video, any of his Sword Art Online videos are hysterical... watch them and you'll hear the exact moment a man's soul dies.

kaptainkristian: A newer channel that's been getting some good traction. This dude does Video Essays on topics ranging from Adult Swim, the meaning of color and costumes in X-men, the true meaning of FLCL and so on. However what's more impressive is the amount of visuals, music and editing used in his videos. I can't wait to see this channel explode because god dammit he deserves it!

Came upon CGP Grey today, as someone had posted his "The Rules for Rulers" video. Really interesting watch that explains power structures around governments. His other videos are pretty informative as well!

Elliot Hulse has to be my favourite. I'm usually very skeptical of any 'guru' on YT but Elliot seems to be this golden middle of western and eastern thought. Or maybe he just reminds me of someone I used to look up to when I was a teen. Oh yeah, it may look like a channel dedicated to bodybuilding at first, since that's how he started out afaik but he actually gives advice that could apply to almost anyone in many of his videos.

The Katering Show - short, 10 minute episodes over two seasons, about "a food intolerant and an intolerable foodie." I laughed, I cried, I learned about pop-up Ramen bars and placenta lasagne.

A new channel i've been getting into... that's been around for ages apparently. Red Letter Media. Though mostly I tend to like their Best of the Worst series in which they select 3 horrible movies, watch them and then decide which is the 'Best of the Worst'.

I will never forget Rich Evans losing his shit while trying to explain Double Down.

Matt Easton's Schola Gladiatoria channel. A HEMA instructor talks about weapons from the 14th through early 20th centuries, military history, does reviews of movie fights, & talks to other weapon history enthusiasts (such as a history prof who's also a competitive jouster!).

Ten Second Songs--Not songs that are ten seconds long.  Anthony Vincent does full-length songs but breaks then into ten second chunks, and each chunk as if that part was done by a different musician than the one who popularized it.  His singing ability is ridiculous.

Epic Rap Battles of History--Historical or fictional characters engaged in rap battles suggested by viewers.  Some of them have guest stars, like Key and Peele.

Vsauce--Michael will take you on a scientific slash philosophical trip in each video, and by the end you'll wonder how it all tied together so well.

Make It Dirty--Does mostly trailers and vids of Star Wars material with specific themes and background music.  Check out Anakin Forgets and Darth Vader Remembers specifically together, among his best, if you don't mind shedding a tear.

331Erock--A French guitarist who does insanely awesome heavy metal solo versions of other songs, among them Frozen's Let It Go and the Harry Potter Theme Song.  And his smile is contagious.
