    I've been watching several of FreewayJim's YouTube videos lately. Since I love California, I especially enjoyed this video that he just uploaded, and the soundtrack is on the money!

    What are some of your favorites?

    There is another current, possibly open thread along the same lines but I could not find it. There have been several other threads in the past but they were all closed due to age and few responses.

    I'm not a great fan of the video format but I liked this one from the Cat Empire - "No Longer There".

    If there was any doubt about the message in the song, the video pretty much dispels it.

    I like driving videos too, because they let you see places you've never seen.

    I like this one, driving through Needles, California and into Arizona.

    I like the first comment too: "I like how when you go from California to Arizona the road turns from a cattle trail to an airport runway"

    Don't Hug Me I'm Scared:

    If you haven't seen it before, there are six episodes. They become increasingly...strange.

    Foo The Flowerhorn. A person sets up and maintains densely planted natural aquariums (no filter, no fertilization, etc...) time lapsed to classical music. Almost more relaxing than watching a real aquarium. Watch brine shrimp slowly devour a piece of boiled broccoli in this video.

    This video needs an introduction:
    For eight years, pachyderms like Lam Duan - old, overworked and sometimes disabled - have been rehabilitated with music at Elephants World, a retirement sanctuary for the animals in the western Thai province of Kanchanaburi. Almost 80 percent of about 3,000 elephants at tourist venues in Thailand, Cambodia, India, Laos, Nepal and Sri Lanka, endure poor living conditions and diets and are overworked, according to the animal welfare group World Animal Protection. The animals at Elephants World get good food and treatment for their physical ailments, but the music is an extra, special treat they appear to love.

    The animals at Elephants World get good food and treatment for their physical ailments, but the music is an extra, special treat they appear to love. The owner of the sanctuary, Samart Prasithpol, 44, said the music seemed to provide the elephants with some special comfort.

    “We work here to rehabilitate the elephants physically,” Smart told Reuters.

    “The use of music has been useful in rehabilitating their soul,” he said.

    One of the most memorable [reactions] was playing 'Moonlight Sonata' to a big bull elephant called Romsai at night. Romsai is an elephant that mahouts keep away from people due to his strength and dangerous temperament. To be so close to him at the piano under the moon and stars and play music to him was quite special," Barton says. "He seemed to be listening and, from his reaction, liked the music. He let me live."

    Barton says he knows there are inherent dangers being around such massive creatures, especially the large males. But these are the animals that seem to love the music the most.

    In this video, Barton plays Debussy "Clair de Lune" for a gentle female elephant called Ampan. Ampan is 80 years old and lives at Elephants World in Thailand. She is blind in one eye and can barely see with the other. 80 years old is very old indeed for an elephant, it’s about 10 years past the natural life span of an elephant in the wild.

    One more, this is probably the video I've watched more times than anything else. It always puts me in a happy mood, I would have loved being there part of that.

    I discovered a YouTube channel by 'GracevilleMN'. Check out this amazing demonstration of a Radiola Automatic Electrola model RAE-26 produced by Victor in 1931! It originally sold for $247.50. That's equivalent to $3,862.12 today, and the Great Depression was in full swing! Imagine that!

    Truly fascinating. This is in the "nothing is ever as new as you think it is" category. I like the forward-thinking design including the 33-1/3 speed.

    I like the fact that the next record to be played isn’t dropped on top of the spinning record below it, thus eliminating the cumulative surface scratches received from point of impact!

    I didn’t see the whole vid as the weather is foggy and rainy here(painfully slow internet speed) but I’m guessing the turntable has some sort of soft material attached to it as well.
