Hi my hot cute girly and boy geeks, it’s Sunday again, so you know what that means. More geeky YouTube vids for you to watch. I may be doing another vlog this afternoon, but that depends on how much work I get done today. But let us just start witch those vids:
I’m starting this YouTube Sunday with a couple of Hobbit related vids. First, what would Gollum pack for a trip? http://youtu.be/rvbhx9G0pfA
The next one is a music video by Wellington band Claude Rains, performing the song ‘You Say’ while being harassed by some of the cast members of the Hobbit: http://youtu.be/uidiue-Rsks
Another Hobbit related one, Richard Armitage (playing Thorin) sings a bit from the Misty Mountains song: http://youtu.be/fpJj0RhHeQg
And the last Hobbit related one is the rap battle Gollum vs. Smeagol. I didn’t really find it funny, but this video is going viral at the moment, so maybe you’ll like it: http://youtu.be/Hs4Ma7J0cyg
The next video is a beauty. It’s actually a short movie (under 10 min. don’t worry) and it’s about: A young filmmaker obtains a mysterious device that unleashes the full force of cinema on his front lawn. Just watch it for yourself: http://youtu.be/hKZfAQ7L_WM
There are dozens of theories on how to explain time; it’s been a fascinating subject for a lot of sci-fi shows. In this next video, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson answers a fan who wonders whether time is more like Ray Bradbury’s linear depiction of time in “A Sound of Thunder,” the branching timestream depicted in 2009’s “Star Trek” or the way Doctor Who describes it in the classic episode “Blink”: “a big ball of wibbly, wobbly, timey-wimey…stuff.” http://youtu.be/is8HKbXEqCk
Ok, this is me fangirling a little bit over the next video. I know Christmas is over but this is Benedict Cumberbatch reading the story of Christmas. And no, I don’t fancy him for the cheekbones; I admire his as a professional actor, and actually fancy his voice and eyes if you must know. (If the man was reading his grocery list out loud, I’d still listen to it.) http://youtu.be/Nwi1f9gkGfI
Having said that. I want to point your attention towards an audio drama, or rather audio comedy or radio sitcom, called Cabin Pressure. According to the official BBC website: Cabin Pressure is a sitcom about the wing and a prayer world of a tiny, one plane, charter airline; staffed by two pilots: one on his way down, and one who was never up to start with. Whether they’re flying squaddies to Hamburg, metal sheets to Mozambique, or an oil exec’s cat to Abu Dhabi, no job is too small, but many, many jobs are too difficult.
Benedict Cumberbatch plays the pilot in this sitcom and let me tell you it is so funny. I might do a separate post about this show, but if you can’t wait for it, go to the official website to listen to previous aired episodes here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00lmcxj season 4 starts on the 9th of January at 18.30 on BBC radio 4.
And to stay in the line of the Hobbit and Sherlock and Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch and Steven Moffat. I was thinking the other day, since I love the series of Sherlock if Moffat actually would create the blogs of Sherlock and John Watson, so I googled and actually found it:
John Watson’s blog: http://www.johnwatsonblog.co.uk/
Sherlock’s blog: http://www.thescienceofdeduction.co.uk/
Molly Hooper’s blog: http://www.mollyhooper.co.uk/
Connie Prince’s blog: http://www.connieprince.co.uk/
The thing is, there are a couple of videos posted on the blog of John Watson and if you live outside the UK, you can’t watch them, thank god for YouTube then. Here are the video’s that are posted on the blog:
The video that belongs with the entry on the blog for the first of January: http://youtu.be/gtveProD0M0

Hope you liked my YouTube Sunday.
Love, your hot cute girly geek, Mendy
