YouTube: STILL 25 MORE Videos Worth Watching (at least once)

YouTube is a most wonderful website with many uses throughout the world. Sure, a primary use is for entertainment purposes, but what many people might not consider is that it is also quite useful for other things. For example, a teacher may use YouTube to search for animations which explain difficult concepts which would be otherwise hard to explain. A company might upload training videos for its employees to watch at their leisure from anywhere in the world. Whatever the purpose, there are certain videos which have become popular internet memes.

The 25 videos with which I present you now are certainly not the best videos on YouTube, nor are they the most widely known internet memes. They are merely videos which form a slice of the internet which I, personally, believe are worth watching (at least once).

If you haven't seen my first or second sets of twenty-five YouTube videos, It is highly recommended.

NOTE: This video has a large MUSIC SECTION

#25: The BallTrack

As usual, we'll start off with a marble track video. This one is a bit different though. If you've ever played Marble Drop, you'll know what this as about.

#24: Liquid Magnet Structure

A ferrofluid, (portmanteau of the Latin word ferrum, meaning iron, and the word fluid) is a liquid which becomes strongly polarised in the presence of a magnetic field.

Ferrofluids are colloidal mixtures composed of nanoscale ferromagnetic, or ferrimagnetic, particles suspended in a carrier fluid, usually an organic solvent or water. The ferromagnetic nano-particles are coated with a surfactant to prevent their agglomeration (due to van der Waals forces and magnetic forces). Although the name may suggest otherwise, ferrofluids do not display ferromagnetism, since they do not retain magnetization in the absence of an externally applied field. In fact, ferrofluids display (bulk-scale) paramagnetism, and are often described as "superparamagnetic" due to their large magnetic susceptibility. Permanently magnetized fluids are difficult to create at present.[1]

One of Liza's incredibly wonderful performances. She certainly has an excellent voice and a beautiful way of telling stories.

#19: Baba Yetu LIVE

Seen to the right is a live performance of Baba Yetu, the theme to Civilization IV, the video game. A wonderful piece of music by itself, the live version is truly wonderful.

#18: STOMP: Basketball/Kitchen

MUSIC SECTION

Changing gears, but only a little bit, we now see STOMP, and one of their best performances. The Basketball/Kitchen scene.

#17: The Beatboxing Flautist

MUSIC SECTION

Not many people can beatbox with a flute. But this guy certainly can.

#16: Roxorloop

This gentleman has quite a wide range of sounds at his disposal. Enjoy his combination of several regular drum sounds, as well as several house/techno sounds.

#15: The Mamas and the Pop Tarts

MUSIC SECTION

Ah yes... More Wheezy Waiter Weirdness.

#14: Worst. Coreography. Ever.

MUSIC SECTION

If you thought you saw the worst choreography when you saw Alexi Sayle (Video #8), you were wrong. This happens to be the most atrocious combination of terrible lyrics, obnoxious choreography, and nauseating set choice that I've ever seen. Bleaurrghh...

#13: Enter Kazoo Man

MUSIC SECTION

If you didn't like Kazoos before, let this video change your mind. Yes, all four screens are the same person.

#12: Resonant Chamber

The final item in our unusually large music section today is Animusic's Resonant Chamber. Whatever you do, don't think of spiders...

For the record, I want one of these in my house.

#11: Anti-Laughing Challenge.

I held my peace until 2:18... Who couldn't laugh at that.

#10: Answering Machine

Ah yes. The token CommunityChannel video. You know you enjoy these. Don't lie.

#9: Telemarketer Torment

Telemarketers: we all have them. We're all annoyed by them. Here's one way to get back at them.

NOTE: Telemarketers are real people and I think it's a terrible thing that our society has come to the point where we have to employ people for the sole purpose of annoying other people.
(mild satire above)

#8: Hole in the wall

You've got to love Japanese programming. Well, it managed to catch on in Europe and now we've got this. If you want to see the original version, check out Human Tetris.

#7: Rube Goldberg Machines

What's a set of YouTube videos worth watching without Rube Goldberg Machines?

#6: Epic Rube Goldberg

Probably the most Epic Rube Goldberg video on the internet, see here, a Rube Goldberg machine designed for one thing: Making ramen.





#5: Player Pianos and QRS Music

During the early 1950s a number of collectors began to rescue player pianos and all the other instruments of the 1920s and earlier. Amongst them was Frank Holland, who formed his collection while working in Canada. On returning to England he located a number of like-minded enthusiasts and started to hold meetings at his house in west London. In 1959 this was formalized as ‘The Player Piano Group'. By the early 1960s, Frank Holland had formed the British Piano Museum (now the Musical Museum) in Brentford. His enthusiasm and effort was the focus of the preservation movement in the UK.

In America, another collector was Harvey Roehl, who was so enthused by the players that in 1961 he published a book called Player Piano Treasury. This sold by the tens of thousands, and was followed by books on how to rebuild and restore these instruments. Harvey Roehl's Vestal Press was a major driving force in raising awareness of the player piano within the general population.

In 1961, Max Kortlander died of an unexpected heart attack and QRS was run by his wife until she sold the company to Ramsi Tick in 1966, in whom it found another stalwart champion whose business philosophy was not so much profit as to limit losses. QRS's presence ensured that owners of newly-awakened players could purchase rolls of the latest titles, so ensuring that the instrument remained current, not just a historical curiosity.

In recent years there has been greater focus on full rebuilding as original instruments finally stop working. Early enthusiasts could often get by with limited patching, but the repair requirements have slowly risen, although even to this day it is possible to find original 1920s instruments that still work after a fashion — a tribute to their quality, and an indication of their continued popularity.
