Copy-pasted from 9th Age forum, that's why it lack music (but please add music to the list if you wish). Let's have a video recommendation thread for stuff to listen and (lightly) watch while painting and converting. Come contribute with your own recommendations, whether educational or entertaining! Happy

The few series I've watched through are stuff like Rome, i.e. ones you want to watch intently, so I'll keep to docus, lectures and audiobooks. Not an exhaustive list, but to get the ball rolling:

Wes Cecil has shared a lecture series on what allows creativity and art to flourish, one which I warmly recommend in all parts.

The Letter Writing episode, as an example, picks up on aspects of human history which is rarely touched upon, and kills the debate over whether the playwright William Shakespeare could possibly have written his works given his seemingly few years of formal education.

Exellent, that's a hell of a list. Personally I usually put a Big Finish - Doctor Who or Blake's 7 audio drama on. Other than that it's just whatever Black Metal is in my playlist.

Thanks for starting this topic, I can't wait to see others suggestions.

RE: Things to watch and listen to while hobbyingNicodemus 05-30-2016

Fantastic list. I've got this bookmarked now for when I need something to watch while painting!

BBC's Robin of Sherwood is a favourite for me (TheHoodedMan knows what I'm talking about!)

Or any fantasy setting movie like LOTR, Hobbit, etc.  I've even been known to paint while watching half a season of Law & Order or so Wink

'fraid that's not even a seventh part of the full list.

Should anyone ever be on the lookout for a documentary, lecture or even audiobook about some topic online, don't hesitate to ask me. Chances are I've stumbled across something while sculpting and painting, and I save all the watchworthy links.

Thanks Admiral! I think by now I've seen (or better heard) every Cracked movies thrice. I can advise Skallagrim, a youtuber who talks a lot about ancient weapons, but you probably already know about him Happy

Wish I had some time for painting soon, really wanna start listening to those docus!

EDIT: for the somewhat masochistic among you, listening to youtube vids by flat-earthers can be quite entertaining, although I usually end up enraged or downright sad.

I have an extended version of this "making of" on a DVD, I've probably watched it at least a dozen times. The amount of detail the designers put into the cars, weapons, etc is mind boggling. Pure gold for model scratch-builders.
Some of you haven't seen the movie? Go watch it, there is a reason it has received universal acclaim, #1 for Metacritic and ten Academy Award nominations, winning six of them.
Witness!

RE: Things to watch and listen to while hobbyingAdmiral 06-01-2018

I'll have to return to that first post and expand it massively later on.

In the meanwhile, some quick Youtube channel tips:

History of Rome series by Timaeus.

History, particularly ancient Roman & Byzantine, by Thersites

History's Empire, containing a wealth of lectures and documentaries on all manner of historical subjects. Kenneth Harl's are particularly good (e.g. to recognize voice), though the lecturers aren't attributed. It seems the channel is all about scraping together as many history videos and audios from all around, and uploading them as fast as possible, and it seems some kind of dealings with owners of some videos has at least taken place. More importantly than credit given and legalities, however, is the concentration of good stuff to watch and listen to!

Anyone has got more natural science videos and audios to recommend?

As to 40k, this video on humanity in that grimdark setting by Luetin is good.

And viking stuff copied from another thread:
 
History of Scandinavia, lectures by Kenneth Harl at Tulane University (Youtube channel receives new videos daily and is worth following):

Ancient Times

Gods, Kings and Heroes I

Viking Invasions

Ireland
 

Professor Neil Price's lectures, which attempts to get into the mindset of Scandinavians during this time:

The Children of Ash - Cosmology and the Viking Universe
 
Life and Afterlife - Dealing with the Dead in the Viking Age
 
The Shape of the Soul - The Viking Mind and the Individual

Partially relevant since it goes into Rus:

Medieval Times - The Steppe Kingdoms, by Kenneth Harl.

RE: Things to watch and listen to while hobbyingAdmiral 02-28-2019

Hi folks,

For those with any interest in history and warfare and thrilling events, and a wish to fill your earphones with it, I can recommend Xenophon's Anabasis (meaning march inland from the coast), recording the march of 10 000 Greek mercenaries in support of Persian pretender Cyrus, to and from foreign lands, and their varied travails, battles and internal strife. The Anabasis will take you back to a world of Persian world empire, unruly highland tribes and blooming Greek coastal colonization. It will let you glimpse a past time when enslavement and pillage were commonplace, and where might makes right. It will especially take you close to a fight for survival, and vicious backstabbing. This is a Librivox recording of a 19th century English translation, read by various volunteers. It's well worth reading in text, too!

What an amazing thanks for all your hard work admiral.

Music wise via live clips on YouTube check out
Rose tattoo: https://youtu.be/GHe6_87OqmQ
Brilliant Aussie rock and roll

However, last weekend I experienced zeal and ardor live - I have named these dudes part of the New Wave of American Slave Metal: https://youtu.be/sk3rLV11F7Y

These dudes absolutely blew me away with their gospel black metal!

Enjoy
