So occasionally I go through these mental zones where I feel like I should watch less TV. Usually when I'm feeling guilty for not working on my writing. And lately in my effort to watch less TV I find that I browse YouTube. Thanks to Hernameisbuffy I've found a whole plethora of British history sorts of shows. My latest find is Restoration Home.
As someone who used to watch This Old House (honestly I prefer the Bob Villa era) this is even better. No, I don't have any grandiose ideas about doing this sort of thing. I just like watching it and getting another facet of history.
I'm also on a music video bender having fallen back into Queensryche. Below is a song from one of my all time favorite albums, Operation Mindcrime (concept album - tells a story
, listen to it in order - it's a thriller/whodunit)
Then there is the footage of a gustnado from Monday night that a storm chaser I follow on Facebook shared
Oh and Ancestry has a channel on Youtube - you too can learn about how better to use the site and find sorta answers to things like - why doesn't my native american DNA show up in my DNA test (per family lore on my dad's side there should be something somewhere and there was not)
Another of my favorite bands - Linkin Park - released a single (new music!)
And I'm taking a writing class online through the Sisters In Crime Guppies Chapter on plotting and outlining (from author Simon Wood) and he has video lessons every couple of days - nope, can't share those with you. I'm not going to risk getting kicked out.
JRod - who I used to entertain myself with her videos in a snort laughing kind of way is mostly using Facebook live - whch means she has left me to surf YouTube unattended without her periodic reminders to me there that I'm headed in a rather pagan direction and well (I think I stole the photo below from someone here - ty whoever you were)
