I'm a Youtube addict and I couldn't possibly try to list all the channels I'm subscribed to..... a lot of them are political commentary or news related channels which may not be appropriate to post here, but here are some entertainment focused ones:

Behind the Meme:

I love memes and internet culture so this is pretty self explanatory. There is a silly debate in the "meme community" over whether he is "ruining the meme economy" by "spreading dank memes to normies," which I find hilarious to watch.

Danielle Bregoli:

This is the channel of the infamous "Cash Me Ousside" girl where she goofs off doing things like judging celebrity fashion or reading really crappy text message "horror stories" (with plenty of sassy commentary). She has the same sort of guilty pleasure appeal that Jersey Shore did, the content isn't exactly high quality, but the personality is so wacky that it's just fun to watch anyways.

LtCorbis:

This is a middle school aged girl who talks trash about random things and is very meme savvy, I find her funny for the same reasons as cash me ousside. I don't know if she should really even be on Youtube given her age but she is hilarious, her wit and knowledge of Internet culture is easily equivalent to someone twice her age.

Two Minute Papers is an amazing channel - an easily digestible way to keep up with computer science.

This weeks piece in particular got my jaw to slack...

The Volgun: A wonderful youtube voice actor who does many readings of various topics, usually reading things from the SCP fandom. Sometimes reading stories and other times reading as characters from the setting.

Here is a good example of the kinds of stories he reads.

Going to break this down into categories.

Gaming:

Pat The NES Punk - A good channel for all things retro gaming. There's also Flea Market Madness, and a couple of really insightful podcasts. One about pop culture and gaming, and one about basically everything else.

GameXplain - A good source for gaming news and insightful analysis and discussion. They have a few Let's Play livestreams. They primarily focus on Nintendo, but occasionally cover other companies.

Let's Plays:

HCBailly - He was Let's Playing before Let's Plays were cool. More focused on retro RPGs. His LPs tend to be very detailed.

Chuggaconroy - More focused on Nintendo games, but also provides very detailed information. You need to have a high tolerance for puns.

The RunawayGuys - A multiplayer collaboration of Chuggaconroy, ProtonJon, NintendoCapriSun, and occasional guests.

MasaeAnela - A frequent guest of TheRunawayGuys. A talented LPer in her own right. Does both streams and traditional Let's Plays.

Tom Fawkes - Another occasional collaborator of TheRunawayGuys, but also has his own group. Has more of a focus on various multiplayer games.

PKSparks - Has more of a focus on Nintendo content, but occasionally branches out. Does both live streams and traditional LPs.

Film:

Chris Stuckmann - One of the best and most passionate film critics out there. He occasionally does game reviews.

Andre "Black Nerd" - He does movie reviews, but also talks about recent news about pop culture.

Comedy:

Cinemassacre - Most famous for The Angry Video Game Nerd, but also has the Board James series, movie reviews, Let's Plays, and other original content.

Brentalfloss - A comedian focusing mainly on giving video game music inappropriate lyrics.

Other:

AllTime10s - Probably the best "Top 10" channel on YouTube.

Game Grumps - Let's Players who are always hilarious. Always. Please keep in mind that they are entertainers, and not everything that they say is politically correct. But, if you enjoy people playing video games and their commentary... you need Game Grumps in your life. Big time.

Well, kinda eclectic in what I think I should recommend, but here goes!

Armoured Skeptic
Not everybodies cup of tea, and he does get things wrong from time to time, but I find his videos enjoyable and I respect his attempt at creating an objectively centrist character who questions all positions presented to him. Again, he gets things wrong, but in my experience he goes out of his way to admit when he's fucked up and even has a video he released recently that he calls "Top Ten Times Armoured Skeptic Fucked Up." Even if you disagree with him, it never hurts to listen to people you disagree with, no?


Secular Talk
I dislike the Young Turks as a general rule, which is why I don't really pay attention to them, but Kyle, I respect. I don't always agree with him, but I find him to be a more reliable and critical "journalist" than most of the "Traditional Media" these days. He's a rare journalist in that despite being pretty solidly left-wing, he criticises the left just as harshly as the right. Again, I don't always agree with him, but I respect him and trust him to report as accurately as he can.


TFS Gaming
If anybody knows who Team Four Star are, you should know about TFS Gaming; basically, the team of TFS playing video games, most well known for their Pokemon Nuzlocke and Dragonball Xenoverse runs. And if you don't know who TFS are, I suggest them as well. Their Dragonball Z Abridged and Helsing Ultimate Abridged are hilarious.


Epic Rock / Pop
Epic music, uploaded weekly. Some are better than others, but if you want to find new and interesting artists and bands, this is a good place to start. Many of my Character Theme Songs have been found through this channel!


Jonathon Young
An amazing singer and artist, he does covers of well known songs from all kinds of anime, films and artists. He went through a huge Disney Phase, and recently released the Pokemon Metal Album. His most recent one that I've heard is "Double Trouble," a heavy metal cover of the Team Rocket Song. Frankly awesome.
He also somehow made the original Mighty Morphing Power Rangers theme even more 80's hair metal. I don't even know how that's possible.


The Bible Reloaded
Two irreverent atheists reading through the bible, chick tracts and reviewing Christian movies? Duh. Now, their humour isn't to everybodies tastes, but if you appreciate low-brow, take-it-to-absurd levels of fucked up humour, definitely give them a try.


The Quran Reloaded
Same as above, but with the Quran. Same guys, obviously :P


Ozzy Man Reviews
An extremely Australian man commentates over Youtube Vidoes and viral clips. He has a long running series where he reviews Game of Thrones episodes in the same sorta style, and even has a pair of videos where he interviewed the cast. Very funny, and well worth a watch.


And...that's it, I believe!

The Templin Institute: A scifi/Fantasy youtube channel that looks at the governmental structure of various factions in popular fiction and examines how they work as well as giving them an overview while a highlight reel plays in the background. I love their Stargate video and the video they did on flags from fictional groups. It gets a recommendation from me. ^_^

New Retro Wave is one of my favorite channels for music when I'm doing creative writing. They even have artists like Megadrive, Trevor Something, VHS Glitch, Lazerhawk, and Perturbator that have tracks that are 1 hr +. It's like a modern throwback take on the 80's.

I realized that I posted earlier, but I developed a fandom for some more channels

ContraPoints: Focuses on political and topical issues, usually involving gender and social justice issues. Her videos have a level of professionalism that would be good enough to be on television, but just as importantly has a good sense of psychedelic and self-deprecating humor otherwise absent in a lot SJ YouTube.

Shaun & Jen: Channel specializes in taking the piss out of misinformation on more popular channels. Has a more chill and relaxed vibe in comparison to the other channels, but is a useful resource for debunking falsehoods.

HBomberguy: Like ContraPoints is a humor-focused political channel, but he also covers game design and film theory (his Dark Souls and Fallout 3 videos I can't recommend enough).

Destiny: A gaming-focused YouTuber who also delves into debates, which is primarily why I follow him. Although he has a tendency to take on just about anyone willing to debate, some of his more high-profile debates against personalities such as Sargon of Akkad have been notable. I confess that I first started following him after the JonTron debate.

Miracle of Sound:  : Come for Commander Shepard, stay for everything else.

YoungYea:  : Found him through Jim Sterling, though prefer Yong these days. Mostly does Videogame/gaming media related vids but unlike Sterling doesn't go all in for a Persona.

Noah Antwiler, Aka the Spoony One: : Some of the older stuff like his Ultima 9 and FF X-2 reviews are golden. His Ultima for the SNES is also hilarious. When he was at his best, no one could top him.

Decker Shado: : next to Cinemasnob, probably the best movie reviewer on Youtube in my opinion. Decker is easy to watch/listen to, has good points and is genuinely funny most of the time. Bonus points for when he does crossovers with Creepy. Only minus is that I think he's a bit too lenient on really shitty movies at times.

Linkara:  : Linkara rocks. Simple as that. Watch his Transformers reviews, or his Ultimate Warrior review.

LoadingReadyRun:  : Not since Kids in the Hall has Canada been this funny. Their Livestream sister channel LoadingReadyLive is also hilarious at times. Their Hatoful Boyfriend Livestream is really Break-down-And-Cry-From-laughing funny.

Anime Abandon:  : If you like to see anime thrashed or hailed, Bennet's the guy. Mostly deals in older stuff, but he's good at pointing out what's wrong or right with an anime.

ThatCreepyLongHairedGuy:  : Decker's perverted nemesis. Creepy is hilarious and he does have a Miniature Elder God on his side. Watch him, he deserves more views.

What if the Emperor had Text to Speech : Take the utter BS stupidity that is W40K, slightly twist some humor into it and voila! One of the most hilarious nerd channels on the tube. Don't you want to know why Kitten's Tau girlfriend left him? (Hint, the ridge on the forehead is not a genital)

And lastly...!
Jonathan Young: : Some really good covers, plus his post song Patreon talk is usually hilarious. "I need money so I can buy pizza...Else I'll starve and DIE! And I can't make music if I am DEAD."

StorytellerSpira: A very well done tabletop roleplaying channel run by miss Spira who handles her games very professionally with music, visual aids, and little transitions that help set the scene and proper mood. I love listening to her videos when I am working on other things and sometimes I will be inspired to write by the sessions she runs.

Seraaron: Another tabletop roleplaying channel that primarily focuses upon the Exalted setting, and has an entire playlist detailing the lore and backstory of Exalted. I kind of wish he had better audio in some of his roleplay videos and that his partner in his Exalted Wheel game could be a little more professional (less swearing and yelling) but I still enjoy their work.

Retcon Raider: A small youtuber with surprisingly good editing and production values in some of his videos. I personally found him through his Phoenix Point lore videos, where he explains the backstory and significance of the lore bits in the setting.

I am currently enjoying his Darkest Dungeon playthrough. I really love the care, attention to detail, editing, and even the moments where he has dialogue as a character from the game during the video. ^_^ I hope he gets more subscribers as time goes on. All of that extra effort deserves to be rewarded.

Like Stories of Old

Talks about some core concepts of writing in various ways, often including snippets and pieces of the deeper underlying psychology and philosophy behind them. The videos are quite short and easily digestible. Perhaps not so great for real fans of philosophy, but awesome for dabblers and writers ;D

Yusha Thomas has a channel where he goes deep into military humor. Some of it I miss out on, but as an Army Brat I can still get a very good laugh out of it, especially when he makes fun of some of the lesser known things about the service. (Oh god I can never get enough of when he mocks the VA or shows how hard Drill Sargeants can be if you get on their bad side X3)
