Videos I Liked This Week

This is the kind of week it’s been. Every once in a while I fall down a rabbit hole trying hip hop I like and come across a gem like this.

I could write paragraphs about how I think this relates to body positivity and how being invisible unless being explicity celebrated is good-but-not-great (which I was just rambling about at the coffeeshop) but really it’s just a fun song and can be treated as such.

Except for Lil’ Dicky. Why is he on fucking everything?

I promise there’s serious videos toward the end of the list…

 

And mash ups. I love a great mash up.

 

And a nostalgia binge. I loved this game as much as Cap and I tried to track down my copy earlier this year to no avail.

 

The horror of how easy it is to pick a lock.

 

Okay, into the serious stuff – in other words the long videos.

A Some More News that I can finally show my Libertarian friends.

 

This articulates what I think about Dave Rubin. I liked him when I discovered him through Sam Harris but eventually Dave just seemed like an insincere petty douche bag when talking about THE LEFT, (which is one infinite-headed gender-neutral hydra to annoying people) and irrational supportive and glad-handing when talking to about the right (which is a multi-faceted patience and free speech rainbow to be people who are trying too hard to be open minded).

 

This video because while I find the OK BOOMER portion of the culture wars interesting it’s also when someone says they liked the meme yesterday and felt it kind out played and died this morning. We’re finally at that point in a culture.

 

Some actual fitness related stuff… always an after thought on the video portion of this supposed fitness blog.

I like this video because the treatment for depression isn’t to get up and get excited about your life and live your dream and shoot your shot and instagram – it’s to get your fucking blood work done.

No amount of cheer-leading and support and platitudes is going to break a cycle of depression if your depression is hormonal. Emotions – All emotions – are downstream of your biology. If it’s out of whack you have to fix that first.

 

And I love it when two different sports try each other’s shit and rather than be played for cheap laughs (Bodybuilders try pole-dancing! Thousand LOLS how silly!) they respect and appreciate each other.

 

And finally this guy. This simple rural Russian with millions of views. The forgettable miracle of the internet is that the extremely normal lives of extremely different people are now available to us and can give us a sense of wonder.
