Now I want to check out those Dethan videos all day!
I watch it instead of TV... nothing good on TV... can find lots on Youtube.
I think I may ask Tes_Rosaline to delete this thread. It's just too awful.
My 11 year old grandsons make their own animated films using Lego people and iPad tricks and put them on Youtube. They assure me their friends all do it too. (Mum keeps an eye on all their output obviously.)
Every day and AWW! CUTE PUSSYCATS!!! are tied in the lead of the poll.
I had thought it might be a generational thing but maybe not!
I watch quite often. What I especially like to do on a wet afternoon is settle down and watch an opera I haven't seen, or watch interviews with people like Janet Baker or Richard Bonynge and Joan Sutherland. I am also working my way through old Desert Island Discs. The Personal forum is, I find, very useful for introductions to new 'works of interest'
I use it for music sometimes but like a radio not a TV in that I never watch the screen.
(Anyone got any cello recommendations, btw?)
Yes, mainly to listen to music, watch interesting things about places, eg our town crier has posted an interesting video, the Tiwn council posts recordings of meetings on YouTube, I can also find useful EFL videos.
This is cello sublime:
Great choice @aspensquiver_2 but I'm surprised he took his cello out into the snow!
Daughter the second is into ASMR.
I use you tube to explore my world through the eyes of others
to go with folks on journeys
to travel dangerous roads
to explore land and marvel art the creativeness of editors
to learn about an interest such as landscape photography
to learn a skill such as sewing
to watch music of al sorts
children singing Fiji national anthem at school start.
ps some of you might recognise an old sunday school song in there
I find the knitting and sewing tutorials very useful.
Youtube is great for documentaries, talks and lectures. I use it most days for these reasons. It also hosts a vast amount of obscure/ rare content, such as Alan Watts' fascinating tv lecture series on Eastern philosophy:
god he has a boring voice. However interesting, although i would suppose out of date.
Shame the dont redo them with colour and a newer presenter.
I can lose hours watching US College Marching Bands...I have no shame...
