In my last post I mentioned how I am enjoying some of the things which people are doing on YouTube to keep us entertained during COVID.
One of the most enjoyable of these is the series of interviews which Rob Brydon has been doing.
He has completed “Series 1” which included interviews with people like Stephen Merchant, Mattnew Rhys, Will Ferrell and more. He also talked to fellow starts of Gavin and Stacy like Ruth Jones and Alison Steadman.
Rob is a very funny man and these interviews are full of warmth and humour. Here is a link to his YouTube channel.
I was already watching some of his videos about (the incomparable) Bruce Lee. He has lots of people (Chuck Norris, Donnie Yen, Joe Rogan, Joe Lewis, Mike Tyson and Sugar Ray Leonard – my all-time favourite boxer) saying complimentary things about Bruce.
Beerdy says the following about himself: “I’m Beerdy. Former IFC champion and mixed marital artist” and also “I’m a professional restorer. Restoring Videos and audio”.
So I was already enjoying his stuff, and then I discovered that he also uploads videos about Terminator movies, Alien movies, and Star Trek Discovery. So that’s when I decided to subscribe.
Here is a link to a recent Beerdy video which features Bruce Lee’s mother and brother being interviewed many years ago:
DK YOO. Genius martial artist from Korea. This guy has learned different martial arts and he is SOOOO fast. Just amazing.
StarTrekContinues. Star Trek fan films with (new actors playing) Kirk, Spock and McCoy. Very, very well done. The driving force behind it is Vic Mignogna. He plays Kirk and he also paid for the first episode out of his own savings! When I last mentioned this there were only five episodes. Now there are nine! They are only planning to make ten in total unfortunately now that CBS have issued new restrictions for fan films.
JoJo’s channel. She is a brilliant singer/song writer who has not had the success which she deserves.
Mr. Sci-Fi. This is my latest discovery and obsession. Marc Scott Zicree is a writer, producer, director who loves science fiction and who has a lot to say on the subject. He wrote episodes for ST: TNG, Babylon 5, ST:DS9 and lots more. He is making a new science fiction show called “Space Command“. Very interesting guy.
So basically I have gone from zero subscriptions to six very quickly!
