I had been having a lot of anxiety. Then I discovered this YouTube channel of a guy restoring vintage Hot Wheels cars.

I had been having a lot of anxiety. Then I discovered this YouTube channel of a guy restoring vintage Hot Wheels cars.

"If it looks like I'm airbrushing it in a box, it's only because I am."

People that make YouTube videos, take note. This guy gets it, no stupid 2 minute intros, no fluff, no music. Just content. I love it, he says he's going to polish it, and then all the sudden it's polished, you want to learn how how polished it? watch his polish video.

this video

He mentions the door lines at the end, I found showing how to get in and out of the Deora, shown by the owner at a car show. Crazy.

The way he said that really reminded me of Ron Swanson.

Nah man! I need 30 seconds of Windows Movie Maker title graphics flying across the screen on a generic blue background.

Follow that up with two minutes of "explanation" of what the video is about. Then show the actual content.

https://youtu.be/dug-ffEhqZU

Sorta in the same realm... I just like watching his videos -

Hit one thing and you're crushed. Sick as frick.

Well since it was the 60s, I imagine everyone was too busy taking recreational drugs and having unprotected sex to care too much about automobile safety standards.

"Ok guys, I uhhh, am just gonna do this tutorial... you know coz I feel like it and all" no shit bro.

I tend to use that line a lot at work. "If the wires coming out of that power panel look cut it only because they are. I cut them." "If it looks like I'm going home early its only because I am."

For me, some of the most relaxing videos ever are British narrowboat videos. This guy makes some of the best:

Chris Farley Laugh
Primitive Technology

This probably comes up a lot on Reddit, but I always become ridiculously calmed watching videos.

Translation: I did this for a while before my son was born. Cheap hobby, just get a Dremel, some old hot wheels at the flea market and customize it with paint. It was definitely a stress reliever.

this video

He mentions all the Hot Wheels that came out modeling this car, I found showing a restoration of one of those hot wheels. Crazy.

Gotta explain your motivation. Otherwise people won't be able to watch your content attentively, because they will be wondering the entire time why you are even doing this video.

edit for defiantly fixing my fixing my spelling disaster

I discovered that channel about a month ago and watched every single video. Good for relaxing at the end of the night before bed. I also recommend you check out “Techmoan” on YouTube. It's a British guy that reviews old technology in depth. Very relaxing and interesting at the same time.

How to make the front page.

"I have been having [insert some common symptom here] a lot lately, until I discovered [Insert thing you're promoting here]"

It's really easy on a Monday, when people have the blues. Use phrases that offer any kind of relief to depression, anxiety, fidgeting, or sleep. You've got clicks.

'Member when you were showing me the Deora?

Yeah.

That was awesome!

Everyone was Florida Man back then.

Underrated comment. I watch a lot of YouTube at night when I'm up with the baby and the YouTube cliches are numerous. This guy cuts through the bullshit.

this video

Also, the guy on the restoration video mentions the car has a weird way of entering the vehicle. I found from a car show where you can see how. Crazy.

If it seems I'm joining the club, it's only because I am.

30 seconds is actually the Wadsworth constant.

For those who don't know, Reddit user /u/Wadsworth once noted that instructional Youtube videos always contain around 30 seconds of unnecessary introduction, and some other user proposed that this should be known as the "Wadsworth constant".

Youtube took note, and you can now tack on the URL parameter wadsworth=1 to skip the initial 30 seconds of any Youtube video.

The positioning of those surf boards look like they are designed to act as a couple of guillotines in head on collisions..

It was 30 percent and they broke that feature a long while ago. Still a thing people reference at least, so the point is valid.

So....that was actually pretty neat!! Thanks for the share.

This is awesome. I might need to start speaking like this.

http://www.kustomrama.com/index.php?title=Alexander_Brothers

My grandpa and his brother built this car! My grandpa's name was Larry Alexander and he and his brother Mike were custom car makers in Detroit. This video was so amazing to wake up to. The Deora was their most famous creation and one of the first Hot Wheels. They also got zero dollars compensation for the toy.

I love this, learned some techniques that might be useful in other hobbies. Thanks

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHQViUBgF5k

I have absolutely no interest in these cars at all. And yet, in the last 6 months, I have probably watched 20 of these videos.

For some reason I find them strangely compelling.

If you like these vids, then you might get a kick out of Headquake137's channel:

This Old Tony

I get a vibe.

They even mention these micro car things, whatever they're called by the kids.

That was a quick 27 minutes.

What does this have to do with anxiety? Take this clickbait back to tumblr where it belongs.

For maximum karma you might want revisit this comment with a spelling edit.

I think that channel prevented me from going on a destructive drug binge once.

You're welcome.

What you'll want to do now is buy several gorillas. Your task is to integrate them into society, buy them people clothes, send them to pre-school and kindergarten at the appropriate age, but them school supplies, all that silly shit.

Now the problem is that gorillas are at least 5 times the strength of humans per muscle mass. When Mrs. Fagone tells these gorillas to calm down and fill out their worksheets, they will throw desks at lethal speeds. There will be casualties.

I dont speak polish

That static grass technique was the coolest thing I've ever seen.

I don't think you meant to write what you wrote.

Warhammer?

Well I've just spent 2 hours on this. Thanks.

I like watching Tim Rowett in Grand Illusions. He talks about his toy collection. Very calming and innocent videos.

I have been having [fidgeting] a lot lately, until i discovered [fidget spinners]

"Not related to pottery but is that a llama?"

Anything that involves Doug DeMuro is especially unfunny.

To be fair to the other people, you get more ad revenue if you hit 10 minutes so they use those tricks to stretch their videos.

Somehow excuses whatever happens just after speaking. I may now do this too.

Great now i miss Chris

This video brought about from within a deep sense of longing to connect with nature. I can only imagine how fulfilling it must be to create something that valuable with nothing but your hands and the natural world around you.

The lack of any narration at all makes the video even more entrancing, if less informative.

Yes. But when the gorillas are grown, having been fully integrated into society and proven to understand the value, purpose, and importance of human life, should they be allowed to follow their dream and play in the NFL? It's not explicitly against the rules and they'd never purposely hurt another player. Of course, they'd be virtually unblockable, and if the the kindergarten desk incident is any indication, there will be casualties.

they think it be like it is, and it do.

helps a lot with my anxiety too

Anxiety increases

Wow that is so awesome, worthy of it's own post.

who you responded was most likely being sarcastic

This video was extremely interesting and as soon as it ended, put me to sleep. Great for bedtime. 10/10

Bob Ross of Hot Wheels

Did you instead go on a constructive crafting binge?

For some reason, I thought it'd me some sort of a "mafia" themed video when you said Tony.

We are all Floridian on this glorious day

I fuck up definitely all the time.

He's looking for calming videos, not ave. focus you fuck.

right up there with my [relative/s.o./neighbor's kid] is [ symptom/disability] and don't think they're very good at [hobby] can we give me [karma]/them [love]

Then watch his polish video.

Hi guys this is wickdkul back with you for another awesome video we're gonna get right into it today I'll, uh, be showing you how to, eh, learn the, uhm, the thing, I've really wanted to do this video for a while for all you guys so let's get right into it. I thought about doing this video last week but my girlfriend was in a really bad mood...

This is why I have a Lynda account.

Goodbye.

(Shameless plug to /sub/askouija )

"If it looks like I'm airbrusing in a box, it's only because I am."

Gold.

Everyone thinks they have anxiety so it's easy karma

Have you watched with Close captioning on?

You should develop an exercise habit or intensify it if you don't already have one.

Just chiming in to say that LazyGameReviews has a ton of videos on fascinating old computer hardware, and a pretty smooth voice. Amazing to fall asleep to

A lot of them try to fluff up their videos past 10 minutes so they get more ad revenue.

Don't forget the jump cuts. Need a jump cut every 5 seconds.

An incredibly dedicated DnD/Pathfinder GM too.

Absolutely love this type of content! Anyone have any suggestions on other cool hobby/DIY channels like this one?

Only other one I've found is , who builds and assembles realistic miniature scenery.

Usually, If you're searching for a particular content, you know why they are doing it.

to make music.

I think that's really cool.

Calmed me down too, and actually made me think of this guy who documented how he made a Da Vinci-esque marble machine .

This was so sorely needed. Thank you

Shouldn't Google's goal to have people watch as many ads as possible by having shorter videos?

The videos calm him.

Huh, only Deora door opening I ever saw was from that one Hot Wheels movie. (World Race? Highway 35? I'm certain it was called a Deora II)

That's so cool! The Alexander Bros are custom car building legends! I've always loved the Deora, the Little Deuce Coupe, the Grasshopper, and the Adonis. Here's a great article from HRM for anyone who wants to learn about them and their influence on custom cars: https://www.google.com/amp/www.hotrod.com/articles/alexander-brothers-and-a-historical-look-at-th...

Sad to hear about them not getting compensated for one of the most famous Hot Wheels toys ever.

OP you might like a YouTube channel by a guy called Cosplay Chris, he turns superhero toys worth like $20 into things that look like they are worth hundreds of dollars and he shows each step of the way. He also sells some items on an Etsy store. I had a right binge watch when I found his channel.

Also, Clickspring is a great channel.

I watched a few of his videos last year. It's weird when you learn you have an obsession with obsolete technology.

No! It relieved stress whether you wanted it to or not. Especially if you didn't want it to.

The way he got rid of the bubbles on the water was awesome.

I skimmed through some of his other videos and one of the things I thought was interesting was how many specific tools there are for the different parts of a scene. In one video he uses a road edging tape and then a rail road cutter.

Automobile restoration

Heh

People who make internet text posts expressing their pleasure with some specific content, this guy gets it. No speaking like teenagers type or text a social media status. Just a properly written short sentence. "I love it".

"... I ... Love it"

I'm actually tempted. Collected hot wheel cars for the longest time as a child. Still have over 700 of them, in their packets, tucked away upstairs. This seems like a great hobby. Any recommendations on what paint etc to buy to get started?

3D Bob Ross right here. Now he just needs to add a ridiculously large tree.

"If it looks like I'm air brushing inside of a box, it's because I'm airbrushing inside of a box"

now I need to see his airbrush setup.

I was certain this comment was going to end with something about the undertaker
