I'm longing for some great Youtube content like the good old days. Good content that's not entirely based around monetisation. I don't just mean MDE or tech channels e.g. AppliedScience.
I mean obscure channels with absurd topics and made my eccentric people in amateurish style e.g. Surveillance camera man/Terry Davis (god rest his soul) content, preferably with a few thousand subscribers. Doesn't have to be ridiculous, can just be interesting but unknown, hidden gems ONLY, no zoomers, with preferably no social media shilling.
Share your underground channels. Can be anything, as long as it's interesting and unknown. Bonus points for anything that's sort of a legal grey area, sneaking into places, severely fucking with people etc. There HAS to be some great stuff out there.
ParallaxNick makes videos about astronomy, what makes him different from other space-centric youtubers is he goes deep into the history of astronomical discoveries which is surprisingly interesting. He's only got about 10,000 subs.
This dude is a paranoid schizophrenic who goes around in public accusing people of being FBI agents organized by his ex-gf who he claims is an NSA agent trying to psyop him. He hasn't uploaded in years but he has three different channels with hundreds of videos on each.
>youtube.com/channel/UCEtxsMx4qsoitFwjBdLU_gA Gregory B. Sadler, phd in philosophy who's been making videos for years and usually gets very few views. he records and uploads classes and lectures he's done, as well as just doing literature analysis and random philosophy stuff. >youtube.com/channel/UCepDzxXW9N_StlZVZe2CThQ Live Action and Animated Videos and Clips, only 13 subscribers. uploads videos of female movie characters snoring. very interesting >youtube.com/user/FunWithSexbad/videos Sexbad, 5k subscribers. used to do interesting video game reviewers, sporadically returns sometimes streaming, has a deadpan style. >youtube.com/channel/UCCcFnrGQkoCenjTbiEah28g 90sgamer92, 5k subscribers. did very informative and interesting videos about pc games. his dnd video has a lot of views, but he unfortunately stopped uploading over 2 years ago. >youtube.com/user/Archengeia Lorerunner, also used to go by Archengeia, 29k subs. Excellent and very comfy channel, his "ruminations" are nice to listen to in the background, very knowledgeable on vidya, film, etc.
Lost youtube content eh? Makes me think of most of Biostudentgirl's catalog. A version of this song also comes to mind: youtube.com/watch?v=X55wHu_5tpA It has the same guitar arrangement but different singers, both male, I haven't been able to find it in years, and I so want to hear it again.
