What videos are you watching?

I didn't see a thread on this, we have one for movies/tv shows, but post any videos you are watching from YouTube or elsewhere.

Tim Keller: Re-enchanting Our World
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9gqFnsM_zg

Quote
The glory and creation of God bears such unknowable depth that to know Him is to be enchaned with awe and wonder. Yet within our consumer society, our obsession with material gain can trump our wonder for God. Drawing from Charles Taylor's work describing how we in the West became a "disenchanged" society, Keller explores in this CFW Conference resource how this disenchantment, while bringing a greater sense of human autonomy and freedom, has also brought a "malaise of modernity", stripping away a deeper sense of our humanity and the meaning and purpose that had been associated with an "enchanged" world. How did we get here? How do we move forward toward a re-enchanged view of God's creation and technological tools we employ? How does the knowledge of God who made us in His image re-affirm our identity and renew our call to cultivate this world in His likeness?

I've been watching a video series called "Google Translate Sings:" the channel host runs various song lyrics through multiple languages in Google Translate and then after translating them back into English, sings the re-translated version.  Some of them are pretty funny.  Here's a sample of "I See the Light" from Tangled https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBK-4YSLDew

I have really enjoyed this modern resetting of Gregorian chant by the monks of Conception Abbey.

The action of the video is nothing special, but I've let it run in the background around the house a couple of times.
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

Various Star Trek vids, like this one comparing the warp speeds of the various ships.

I got an ad for Star Wars Nerf guns in front of that video.
Is that what they teach you at the temple volnutt-stein?

Actually, it's Volnutt-berg.

Rome doesn't care. Rome is actually very cool guy.

TAKING CRITICISM - Terrible Writing Advice

Pretty good but somebody sure thinks they're Yahtzee Croshaw.

But no child molestation jokes makes this guy automatically better imo...

He does go overboard sometimes, yes.


We should probably all quit posting in this thread so it doesn't cause too much confusion with the Video of the Day one.

The only LPers I really watch anymore are raocow (who's currently doing every Megaman platformer in order), Lucahjin, and Chuggaaconroy. I thought about watching PeanutbutterGamer play Cuphead though, since it's so amazingly trippy looking.



ETA: I just violated my own advice like the big giant hypocrite I am lol...

LECTURE ON THE THREE HIERARCHS AND THE SOCIAL ISSUES OF THEIR TIMES

Three brief lectures by Monk Maximos of Simonopetra, Fr. John McGuckin, and Fr. John Behr. I didn't know Orthodoxy organized all-star teams, but there you have one.

Visuals are nice (for what they are) and the voice over is pleasant enough, but otherwise...
