I’m not sure if ther is an English equivalent to a saying we have here in Puerto Rico
“Dime con quien andas, y te dire quien eres” which means “Tell me who you hang with, and I’ll tell you who you are.”
Well, I’m not telling you who I hang with, but I’m willing to share who I follow on youtube. Why? Not only you will notice how odd my sense of humor is, but hopefully, you’ll get to discover a few interesting channels (ahem, Wendy Malcolm, check her videos out) Also, if I don’t post it now, I’ll forget about it for another couple of months. So… yeah.. here we go.
So, in no specific order, here are my subscriptions…
Ryan Higa is probably one of the first people I subscribed to. While he is very popular in youtube, I found him by chance. You could say his current video style differs greatly from the days he used to film at his house with his friend Sean, and while I miss his “How to be” videos, I still enjoy his more professional(ish?) videos.
Another youtuber I found by chance, mainly looking for random silly videos, he was still in his hair flicking days. I find it surprising how serious and normal he can be when he decides to. On the other hand that rarely happens on that channel (he has another one) and I must admit, that the constant sexual jokes don’t really appeal to me. His randomness does, however.
I consider this guy to be a genius. I first discovered him looking for the creator of [url=Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny[/url] song, and I decided to subscribe when I found some of his other videos. Some of them are short, and seemingly senseless, but still funny in my eyes, likeThe Prognosis
Potter Puppet Pals
Definitely one of the main reasons I enjoyed Neil’s channel was his Harry Potter Puppets. The puppets recently got their own channel, but the most memorable ones are still on his main channel, like The Mysterious Ticking Noise.
I discovered the Guild first on youtube when they were probably on the third or fourth episode of the first season. Then they struck a deal with Microsoft, and have been uploading their videos elsewhere before posting them on youtube. Still, I’m sure I favorite their music videos when they do upload them on youtube. Have I mentioned that I adore Felicia Day? Because I do.
Jeff Lewis’ five minute comedy show
One of The Guild members recently got his own 5 minute show on youtube. It’s… interesting to see the usually composed Volk in an angrier mood and swearing like a maniac in some of those videos, but I find the first episode particularly funny. Oh, Guild cast members have made special guest appearances as well.
Know Your Meme
What the heck is a lolcat, and where the hek it origined? RocketBoom’s institute of meme takes care of just that: explaining, most of the time in a humorous manner, the origins and effects of numerous memes. They used to be part of the RocketBoom channel, and you can see a list of their episodes and seasons in that channel.
Ray William Johnson’s channel is yet another one I found by chance, but liked it enough to subscribe. He basically reviews 2 or 3 viral videos, picks a question and then shows the best answers of the last questions. You can also learn a few words and phrases you use to confuse or offend your friends, like Squaids, Two camels in a tiny car, Fake and gay, Fayul, and of course, I’m doing your mom.
The Gregory Brothers
I will admit, I hate auto tune, and the rock I live under is big enough for me to not know or care what’s happening in USA (or my own country most of the time), but I do enjoy Auto Tune your news. They have also been the responsible of auto tuning several other videos, like The Bed Intruder Song. Their auto tuning abilities have also been featured in other channels, like equals three, whatthe guild, and the really annoying orange.
And speaking of which…
Really Annoying Orange
You’re an apple. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
While I never clicked on them, I did noticed RAO being featured a lot. And I figured it would be too annoying, if was called… really annoying orange. Fruits with faces? Ridiculous. Then I clicked. Now I find it brilliant. Many internet/youtube celebrities have guest starred as some random fruit who eventually get sliced by Knife (There’s LOTS of fruity gore on these videos! Not for the faint of stomach!)
It all started when I saw one of their spoofs: Dora the Explorer in Incepcion. Shortly after that, I was browsing their video list, and grew fond of Devon and the gang. They like to make fun of Twilight and Bella’s inability to say a full clear sentence, which is nice too. XD
They mostly focus on certain segments, like Lady Gaga Vlog, where she answers questions, Celebrity Yell fights, and now Dude without phones.
Oh, and they have a a second channel where they show behind the scenes bits, which sometimes can be funnier than their actual videos.
Wendy Malcolm, If you have seen electric spofaloo’s second channel, you probably know who Wendy is and either hate her for being so awkward and annoying or love her for that very awkwardness. I happen to be on the love her side. She has some surpsisingly good, funny and random videos on her own channel, and I think I fell for her too. In fact, she began appearing on Electric Spoofalo’s main channel, as Taylor Swift, and it turns out she can sing! I definitely love her. (I’m beginning to think I have a weak spot for red heads with an awkward sense of humor)
Toby Turner is my most recent discovery. I realized I have seen and even favorite some of his videos without knowing who he was. Just like with Wendy Malcom, I officially discovered him thanks to his appearances in Electric Spoofaloo videos “Dudes without phones” (with Brett the Intern)
Seeing his literal songs for movies and video game trailers, and noticing he’s the responsible for certain Farmville video (which I used to “play” back them) where 2 of the three reasons I had to subscribe him.
He is my most recent addition. I have to say, that while I have enjoyed his 5 year old reviews on GameTrailers, I didn’t really watch many of them, because for some reason, I don’t watch that many videos there. (Crazy, I know! But when I “friended” people, I just click on blog updates) but now that Mazer is beginning to upload his videos there, there are better chances of me not missing them.
