My Favorite Guilty Pleasure

My Favorite Guilty Pleasure

I watch way too much tv. Or more specifically I watch way too many Youtube videos on our TV at home. I cannot help it - soo much interesting content out there... Usually these binge-watchings of youtube content start with something borderline relevant.

Usually it starts with something that teaches me something useful, changes my perspective on something known or some other useful video... But let's be honest, by the third video I just follow the suggestions - and inevitably end up watching some garbage "we just want your eyeballs on the next ad"-video for the rest of the day. (Looking at - at least - you Cracked and WatchMojo)

Channels I love watching

Rap Slam Battles and RåtKøbenhavn

I have a deep love for the written - and spoken - word. I have loved poetry since I was a child. I read Poe before I was a teenager, and read Michael Strunge for fun in my early teens - and tried to impersonate the writing style of Dan Turell when writing essays in school.

For the same reason I have also always loved hiphop - especially lyrical rap. And when written battles became a thing in Denmark I watched everything I could get my hands on. (I have never seen it live yet, though).

Rap Slam Battles
Denmarks one and only Pre-written Rap Battle League! est. 2011
Københavns nye battleliga. Rapkonkurrence i skrevet format, uden beat!

My favourite three rounds must still be Mund de Carlos three rounds against Jøden from 2014.

12Tone and Adam Neely

I love listening to, writing and performing music. These two channels have great content for understanding music.
