Original Nickelodeon Is Coming Back

I grew up on shows like Pete and Pete, Clarissa Explains It All, Salute Your Shorts and a number of other awesome shows. However, as shows do, these were cancelled and replaced. Well, now 90's Nick is making a comeback, and I for one, welcome these shows back with open arms.

The Engineer Guy

Bill Hammack, known on Youtube as the Engineer Guy, is one of the best Youtube channels which I subscribe to. I would consider myself a layman in the engineering field, but in watching his videos, I have learned more about the technology I use daily.

In his videos he not only talks about the subject he's covering, but sets up demonstrations as well. In his fiber optics video, he modified a bucket with a viewing window on one side, and a hole with a stopper on the other. By shining a laser through the viewing window and into the stream he had created, he showed how light interacts within a fiber optic cable. In this way, he makes his videos both informative and interesting, and because he uses visual props, it's much easier for me to understand just what he's talking about.

The video below is about smoke detectors, and I chose to share this one because I was surprised at the level of sophistication which goes into their design.

If you missed the links above, his website is here, and his Youtube channel is here.

The Runaway Guys

I'm not going to lie. Usually I hate watching other people play video games. This is mostly due to the fact that I'd rather be playing them myself. However, the Runaway Guys are quite enjoyable to watch when they perform their Let's Plays.

They've just recently started a new LP with Super Mario Bros. Wii, in this case recently meaning in the last couple of months. They're currently up to episode 7. Below, you'll find episode 1. I find the commentary between the three regulars and their guest to be rather humorous most of the time. Okay, really I just enjoy the rivalry between ProtonJon and Chuggaconroy (They're constantly trying to kill each other.)

You can find their Youtube page (As well as their other videos) here.

Igudesman and Joo

I enjoy classical music in addition to the more contemporary stuff. I am also aware that there are people who do not enjoy classical music. However, I think I have found a couple of performers who make classical music enjoyable, and below you'll find a couple of their videos.

If you enjoyed them, you can find their webpage here, and their youtube page here.

His Cheeseburger

Below, you'll see a music video I put together parodying the relationship between Edward Cullen and Bella.
