Fail Blog

Allowing you to watch others fail so you don't have to make the same mistakes, failblog specializes in gathering (typically viral) videos of candid failures.  What I enjoy most is the wins they scatter in their channel occasionally.  Commonly, their videos get flagged, be sure you have a proper account to view some of their more... questionable... videos.'s Channel

Is it a good idea to microwave this?

JPizzle1122 (formally ideo productions) has some very interesting shows.  The most interesting and viewed is "Is it a good idea to microwave this?"  The threesome microwave common items, sometimes with VERY dangerous results.  Although cool to see, leave these "stunts" to the professionals.  They have years of experience and a tin-foil shield to protect their nuts (because nobody loves roasted nuts).  Both of these things keep them safe.

Everything sounds different in the Key of Awesome

Making pop parodies to pop music, the Key of Awesome takes some of the newer pop hits and gives it their "awesome" touch.  Although sometimes a little vulgar, I've definitely put much worse up here (Jon LaJoie, for one).

Daneboe - Video Game Mashups

Specializing in video effects (collaborating with Gagfilms to make that stupid annoying orange), Daneboe features some pretty creative animation mashups on his channel.  Some of my favorites include his combining retrovideo games (IE: Sonic VS Pac-Man  or  Mike Tyson Punchout VS Mortal Kombat).  Most of his stuff is cool and worth a look!

FPS Russia - Real life guns

As tested by a crazy russian with his cool accent, FPSRussia shows off sweet firearms from a golden desert eagle to a fully automatic WWII era 40mm machine gun. "And remember, don't try this at home, I'm a professional russian."

As always, Have a nice day! =)

Different from Machinima Respawn, which features pro FPS play with commentary, Machinima focuses on games from a comedic point of view.  This channel is worth checking out despite the Half-life video, below.  This is but one of MANY shows featured on Machinima.  Check it out!

 Giving tips, tricks, and sick game play of the latest Call of Duty installation (Black Ops), xJaws is a pretty decent FPS player.  Although I loved the single player Black Ops, I found the online part difficult to play (way too different from the previous games).  The controls seem stiff and it's way more difficult to take people down (3 bullets no longer does it).  Enough about my rant, xJaws is making me think I should study up and give Black Ops online another try now that the PS3 network is back up.

Ltmkilla - Raging let's plays and commentary

First off: HUGE language advisory for this one.  Featured on Roosterteeth's Achievement Hunter (last post), Ltmkilla is one of the loudest raging gamers I've ever seen.  His rage is hilarious!  His channel features Let's Plays (he has an amusing Let's Play of Megaman 9) of games new and old.

Roosterteeth's Achievement Hunter

Although Roosterteeth is most famous their halo series Red vs. Blue, they have made a new hit making the  achievement hunter series on YouTube.  Mainly composed of Xbox360 games and commentary, they mix comedy with interesting easter eggs and new game styles (Halo HORSE).

Please check out their channel, as the one video below doesn't even cover the variety of material they post.

Jon Lajoie - Comically dry

Hard punching and often far from politically correct, Jon Lajoie brings his stand-up musical act to YouTube. Bringing his musings to the world in the form of cheesy 90's rap as performed by an obviously-white white dude, Lajoie brings his style without apologies.

Your Favorite Martian - Up and Coming

A brainchild of Ray William Johnson (already featured in a previous post), these original animated music videos are both catchy and creative.  Usually with nerdy overtones, these songs could be enjoyed by most, but truly be loved by a select few.  I think I'm somewhere in the middle.

Charlie Puth - Let's make it smooth

Now specializing in comedic original music, Charlie Puth started out remixing pop songs into relaxing, elevator-worthy tunes. I think the smoothness of his voice is key to this, although his overuse of autotune is painfully obvious in most of his songs.  His stuff is atleast entertaining enough to deserve some of your attention.

If you have never heard one of TLI's songs, you probably have lived in Antarctica for the last five years. With massive YouTube hits like "Jizz in my Pants", "Like a Boss", and "I Just Had Sex", I feel like posting this first in a week featuring unique music, there is no other better channel to kick this off!

Featuring: Unique music (Until next week)

Given the comments in the Future Posts blog and on both Pomplamoose and Ronald Jenkees, I will be featuring music for the next week (daily for the next 6-10 days).  Not just any music, unique creations by YouTubers, for YouTubers.  Look for the first of the series, tomorrow, at the usual post time of 8AM EST.

Ronald Jenkees - Throwing hot fire, one unique track at a time

He may look strange, but his original music is a brilliant fusion of Hip Hop and Electronic sounds.  In this world of Autotune madness, it's rare to find an artist that sounds just as good live as they do recorded.  With inspirations coming from Timbaland and Tech N9ne, Ronald's love for music shines through all his sounds.  Also, his overall message is clear:  no matter what you love: do it and just have fun.  Although he hasn't made any videos recently, his entire collection is amazing!

Pomplamoose - French for grapefruit

After the mind-numbing post for Cyriak, yesterday... we've got to tone it down a little. For mellow, soothing remixes and originals: look to Pomplamoose. Using complex audio sampling and mixing, this two-piece band seamlessly melds their indie personalities and clean sound into their truly enjoyable music. Also, their videos capture the making of the audio in a way that you may have never seen before.

Future posts

I'm considering doing daily subscribing recommendations in weekly genres.  In example: a week of indie music... or maybe "let's play" channels... or even news affiliates.  That way it could be more structured instead of random.  Thoughts?  Suggestions?


Who ever thought that remixing popular songs into an 8-bit, "Nintendo-style" format would still sound fantastic?  Obviously, not me... but NESsongsrus has taken this to the next level.  Although NESsongsrus is not the only 8-bit remixer, he is one of the more viewed and subscribed profile to publish primarily 8-bit remixes.  Often, I imagine placing some of these songs over the audio of NES and SNES classics, like mega man... it works surprisingly well!

Here's a challenge for you:  try finding your favorite song in 8-bit mode and post it in the comments.  Pop and classic rock are the easiest to find, but  most mainstream songs can be found out there.  If you can't find it, there are free programs out there to do it for you.

Schmoyoho - Accent on the YOOOOOOOOOOO

The modern pop musical style of autotuning is taken to the extreme by Schmoyoho.  Applying an interesting audiological treatment to news reports, interviews, and commercials, they have created the entertaining shows they call "Autotune the News" and "Songify This!"

Husky Starcraft

eSports (Electronic Sports) are beginning to become very popular in the United States. Already a huge deal in Korea, interest is beginning to swell in the rest of the world. The most common games are real-time stratigies; and the most popular is StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty in particular. And what good is watching a competition if there is no casting/commentary? With regular updates, H-to-the-Usky Husky keeps you covered.
