journals my name is ra.

tell me what you re-watch.

“Tell me what you read and I’ll tell you who you are” is true enough, but I’d know you better if you told me what you reread.” – Francois Mauriac

I was thinking about this quote today.  I was thinking about radio shows, and TV programs, and YouTube videos, and the advent of a wide variety of new types of technology.  I was thinking about the dog park in Night Vale, and Mercury Theater’s accidental alien war, and all the different ways that different medias impact us.

I’ve shared my favorite books to re-read before, so today I’m sharing my favorite YouTube videos to re-watch.  Some are new to my playlist, but– trust me–  I know they’re keepers already.  In no particular order,

enjoy:

    1. I saw this video for the first time a couple of months ago. The person sent me the link after I said that I liked My Little Pony! Why would they do that to me?? Poor Charlie!😢

    1. Aw, I love You’ve Got Mail… when she’s sniffling over the books, awww. 🙂 But I have to say I’m a When Harry Met Sally kinda girl, all the way. Rewatchable Indian movies…. Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, even though they’re old now. And Ted talks… all the Ted talks, though the one I included here “Hard is Hard” is my all time most referenced one. 😀

  1. I’ll be rewatching Twin Peaks as soon as I have a premier date for the new episodes. I like old cartoons and reruns of M*A*S*H best, but I’ve been watching old game shows on a channel called Buzzr lately. Did you know that on the old Let’s Make a Deal, they would pay the tax and license on cars they gave away, and that trip prizes were always in first class? Those were the days.

    1. Dave loved Twin Peaks, and could watch it on repeat like the Twilight Zone episodes. Old Game Shows are fun– but I had no idea they used to pay everything on that stuff… that’s amazing. No wonder they used to seem more enthused about it. 😀

    1. Isn’t it so warm and fabulous? I love how it’s not really any big things… just this continual stream of things that make days better and dreams more possible. Yes, small kindnesses and awesome humans– two of my favorite things. 😀

      1. I’m such a sucker for these kind of things. It was so cheesy when they all started running down to paint the wall together, but I still teared up. Couldn’t help myself. I just saw the movie, the Perks of Being a Wallflower. I’ll definitely watch that again. I’ve seen Donnie Brasco, and Gattaca both way too many times. And I have all seasons of the voice and just go back and watch them when it’s not on… Reading this mail, I see that I’m a pretty cheesy kinda guy. Oh I could go for some stuffed jalapeño poppers right now! But the closet Jack in the Box is 1,069.8 miles away – Mumbai.

        1. I’m the same. 🙂 I’ve been planning my new life off a Gattaca qoncept– don’t save anything for the swim back. 🙂

          Perks and Donnie Brasco– two favorites. 🙂 And nothing goes better with cheesy movies than stuffed jalepeno poppers. Totally worth 1100 miles 😉 Okay, maybe not. But you know, they’re not that hard to make. 🙂

    1. Ah haha! “Or any walls of the world.”, 😀 Oh, the giggles. And the little cats… amaaazing. 🙂

      I love the Life Aquatic, and any Bill Murray anything really. When I was in prison, one of the freestaffer chefs reminded me of his character from that movie. He carried this thermos and wore a beanie, and just… well, had that look. 🙂

  2. Movies? I’ve lately loved Captain America, The Avengers, and Thor. Doubt and Signs are family favorites. I got totally caught up in the series Longmire on Netflix and a show called The Killing, for how well written it was. And of course there’s Monk and Frasier. And we sometimes re-watch a movie called The Encounter.
    Goodness, I better shut up or I’ll list everything I’ve ever seen. I have a horrible movie memory so I can watch the same thing many times and not get sick of it. But, while I can’t remember movies, I never forget birthdays, so it works out okay in the end. 🙂

  3. Dr Who (with David Tennant), You’ve got Mail, Pride and Prejudice, 10th Anniversary production of Les Miserable. Books? Well, there are so many I’ve read and reread I’d need a page to list them 😀

  4. Haha, you have all the philosophical, random, awesome, intelligent, silly awesome I always thought. But I have some notes…
    One: I’d like some beans back.
    Five: Poor Charlie! And all the levels of hilarious wrong this is.
    Six: HOW did you even find this and OMG (spoiler!) he gave her his eyes!
    Seven: Woot!
    Nine: 😦 but 🙂
    Ten: Hahahaha
    I’ve seen the others, undoubtedly shared for their brilliance.

    There have been a few I’ve watched again, but Ten reminded me of this Daniel Radcliffe effort:

    And I might of watched this repeatedly:

    And I totally should have made this a post, instead of writing it here! 🙂

  6. Four Feathers, The Matrix, Much Do about Nothing, Return to Me, A Walk in the Clouds, Italian Job, and Seabiscuit. Probably a few more, but those get top billing. TV Series: Star Trek TNG and Merlin. The books I read over and over again are Lewis’ Space Trilogy, Tolkien’s LOTR (I have never liked The Hobbit, for some strange reason), and Donaldson’s Modant’s Need series. Thanks for the reminders, Ra! I think I will be watching an old favorite this weekend.

  7. I can’t get to youtube right now, but there’s a video showing a bunch of beagles who grew up in cages at a puppy mill experience grass for the very first time. Also, I’m a total sucker for those dogs greeting their returning veteran owner videos. I could watch those all day.

    Charlie The Unicorn rules.

      1. Depending on the piece, yes. I have been enjoying Casta Diva by Renee Fleming, and it’s BEAUTIFUL, and has certainly made an impact on the people I’ve sent it to.

      1. The first one is Imogen (the singer) live up to now each verse is about 7yrs and she said she will and another verse on seven years! She has already had s baby so she will have plenty to add. Here is the video she made about the birth and first year of the baby who was a year this month so only another 6yrs wait for the next verse, anyway here the one about the baby as a Mum I think she explains it so well!

  8. I’ve rewatched your number 7, and I must watch your number 3, and I rewatch many many figure skating performances, and I rewatch this (also about parallel universes):

    It would make such a difference if everyone knew that we each do literally live in different worlds.

  9. Super cute idea for a post. I so enjoy Kid President. There’s a Disney short animated film called Feast that I really enjoy. Georgia Bulldog Rescue created a video to American Author’s “Best Day of My Life” that gets me every time (I volunteer for a dog rescue)
