I hasten to greet everyone who is on voluntary-forced self-isolation. I myself observe quarantine and practically do not get out of the house. I had to put the rental office on hold and famously rebuild my life. Walking in local parks, streets and cozy cafes now replace the different rooms of the apartment. In between work tasks, you can only watch movies, TV shows and channels on YouTube. By the way, the list of my subscriptions in the popular video service has grown in proportion to free time. I am sharing with you a dozen really interesting finds.Disclaimer: I deliberately did not separate the Russian-language and English-language channels. In 2020, it’s a shame not to know the language of international communication at least at that level to watch movies, TV shows and YouTube channels in the original language. If you do not hold out, there is just time to catch up.
One of the most interesting channels on YouTube, which I classify as a mediation. He is led by jeweler Pablo, who moves in a wheelchair and does amazing things with his own hands. He got to high-tech sites when he rebuilt AirPods in a gold case. He also surprises when he turns hex nuts and bolts into jewelry. For the example above, I leave one of my favorite videos - within its framework, he makes wedding rings for himself and his lover, whom he has not yet acquainted with any of his family members.
I’m sure you remember the Legend Destroyer show, which at one time was breaking the Discovery television channel. When I remember him, there was a trembling from pleasant nostalgia all over my body - oh, carefree childhood. There was always a couple of presenters in the frame, and Adam was my favorite. He did not go in a ridiculous beret, and that made me very happy. Today he has his own show on YouTube with remotely similar content. He does all kinds of things right in his garage and explains their technical nuances. For example, in the video, which I am posting here as an example, he put together just a top-length growth suit of a bear. Be sure to check it out.
3. Vert Dider - peppy translation of the most informative videos
Friends advised me to pay attention to this YouTube channel. Honestly, it seems to me that its creator gave it an extremely non-obvious name that does not explain anything at all. If I accidentally came across him, I would think that this is another gathering place for children who did not have time to get to the early puberty. In fact, the author of this channel translates the top western videos with a scientific bias on the topic of the day. In the example above, the video about the search for a vaccine for coronavirus, which made me and you sit at home and maintain a social distance.
4. “Made in Moscow” - Raevsky’s young channel about the capital of the Russian Federation
An interesting channel for residents of the Russian capital, as well as those who often visit this wonderful city. Although I do not spend it together for more than a few weeks a year, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the shooting and inspired by the extraordinary approach of the author of the channel. He talks about Moscow with understanding, plainly and in alignment. He selects extraordinary topics and really interestingly talks about them. Today the channel has a tiny number of subscribers, but something tells me that in the very near future everything will change. Great content.
5. KinoPoisk - an interesting channel about films of the famous service
Another channel that friends advised. Honestly, I had no idea that KinoPoisk has its own YouTube. Why, I couldn’t even imagine that there are so many really high-quality content on it that are divided into categories: “Film Analysis”, “Starring”, “History”, “How to shoot ...”, “Analysis of the scene”, “Interview "," Oscar "," Theory "," What do we know about ...? " and "Master classes." In each of the directions you can hang for a long time. So far I have begun to watch film reviews. As an example, I leave you a video about “The Lord of the Rings” - one of my favorite sagas.
From nothing to do, not so long ago I even subscribed to Ivan Urgant. In a party of "techno-scientists" one can hardly be proud of this, I agree. Nevertheless, almost immediately after that, I decided to find the creator of the original idea, which domestic creators with great pleasure borrowed. Its author is Jimmy Fallon, who has been running his show on NBC since 2014. “Evening Urgant” was written off “close to the text”. Naturally, the original is much more interesting, and there are also top guests from your favorite Hollywood films, from top Western TV shows and more. In general, I advise.
Another channel with unique content that really deserves attention. In its framework, the authors tidy up curious rare things that are in a disgusting state. Interestingly, they tell interesting technical nuances of the procedures described in each video. I watched a few videos, and while number one on my personal top is the restoration of a classic Zippo lighter in a collage with Harley Davidson. She was in such a disgusting state that she had to go to a landfill. However, the guys did not share this opinion with me.
8. “The People” - a Russian journalist from the place of current events
An interesting channel, which I immediately perceived as a travel blog. Its author travels around the world and shows the realities of people's lives, the inside of specific cities and countries with problems that not everyone can deal with. I changed my mind about this channel when the coronavirus pandemic began. At the risk of his own health, the author of the channel first went to the epicenter of the spread of the virus in China, and not so long ago walked around the Moscow Region institutions where the sick were kept. As an example, I give a video with the story of a man who defeated COVID-19.
9. BBC Earth - a unique channel from the world of real wildlife
Not a single selection of YouTube channels could do without the one that talks about wildlife. This is more than suitable content for this site, which will make quarantine much more fun. I would not say that I can attribute myself to the category of those who are crazy about animals in any form. Yes, I sometimes find myself in good European zoos, but I don’t want to know the nuances of the life of each particular species. However, even to me, BBC Earth content is suitable for the background role. While he is playing somewhere nearby, I am writing this article, washing my dishes or squatting so as not to get fat by the summer.
10. Dude Perfect - unique experiments and popular tricks
At the time of this writing, more than 50 million people have subscribed to this YouTube channel - an impressive figure, right? Within its framework, a company of friends is engaged in the implementation of unique experiments, popular tricks and really fun challenges. For example, on the video above, the guys created an obstacle course, which you need to go on an electric scooter, shooting at targets. Dynamic shooting from various angles and real emotions - all this creates the impression that you are next to the guys and have fun with them. Most if you quarantine alone.
Another curious channel that should amuse you. Its main feature is slow motion tricks. A pair of friends shows what processes are taking place at that moment, which the human eye does not have time to fix. In the video that I propose as an example, they decided to look at how the dart works with a tranquilizer. This is the very thing that is used to, for example, euthanize an exuberant or wild animal. Each such dart is a syringe with a special quick-acting sleeping pill. When it hits the target, it is introduced into it.
An extremely extraordinary channel that talks about human life in absolutely wild conditions and without modern tools. He, without a bit of pretense, shows how to use a primitive device to build a roof over his head right in the middle of the jungle. And on the video, which I offer as an example, a couple of channel heroes caught a wild duck, fried it at the stake, and then ate it with appetite. I could not even think that it would be interesting to watch. Nevertheless, he was mistaken. Really very interesting and unusual content is obtained.
At the end of this article, I would like to draw your attention to the YouTube Premium subscription, which I have been using with pleasure for several months. If you are also actively using this service, as I recommend it. It removes the built-in YouTube ads, and also makes it possible to download videos for offline viewing and even listen to them in the background instead of podcasts. Moreover, YouTube Music is also included in YouTube Premium, which gives you the opportunity to not only listen to music, but also broadcast it to any gadgets that have YouTube. In general, the thing is sensible and not so expensive.
