Extra notes: YouTube videos I've been enjoying lately (some I've watched or listened to dozens of times):

--from one of my all-time favorite Dr. Who episodes,
one with great heart and beauty and sadness in it.

Arguably my favorite scene in all of the second season.
Cobra Kai is a real gem.

Reich produces some excellent videos. This one is a keeper.

--from season one of Cobra Kai.
I've watched it dozens of times.
Mary Mouser is gorgeous; Miguel is a heartthrob;
their kids, should they ever have any in a very unsure future,
would be, on a scale of 1 to 10, 20s.

U2 at their finest. Another video I've watched dozens of times.

A kick-ass speech by Serenity's kick-ass captain,
Malcolm Reynolds.

Kari Kimmel's rendition, used in season two of Cobra Kai,
is arguably better than the 80s original by Bananarama.
Another video I've enjoyed dozens of times.

I think the thing I like most about Gilbert
is her humility and grace. She doesn't try to come off
as something she isn't. She's a bit white-lighty for me
sometimes, but she redeems herself through
her humanity and her down-to-earth worldview.

I never saw the animated version;
this version looks utterly kick-ass.
Can't wait to watch it.

An absolutely superb rendition with the boys of Led Zeppelin
gawking in admiration from the box seats,
and with the last true president of the United States
and his lovely wife enjoying it as well.

The speaker is mostly addressing women,
but as one who practices intermittent fasting,
the information she provides is excellent.
Take a look.
