Check Out This Thing I Found - Youtube Edition

I've been wanting to return to Sharing All the Neat Things for a while now, since I've felt like my life has been slanted toward the negative lately. I need something to make me feel happy again, and I always feel happiest when I am sharing with others or helping people out.
SO... to that end, I have a few awesome YouTubez to share that maybe people don't know about. I'm hoping it'll make someof you smile or laugh or git lerned a bit.

The first is the Unknown Cameraman's channel. He's an urban explorer that goes in to abandoned buildings and documents what is seen there. Even moreso than that, he gives a detailed history of thelocations he visits so you can learn about why it was important and now suddenly it's not.
I have always been fascinated by abandoned buildings and the history of what might have happened, so this is right up my alley.
I also like that he is very respectful of the places he goes, and he generally decries all of the graffiti and vandalism visited on these places by bored people and teenagers.
A sample of his work:

If that's not up your alley, and you're more of a cooking show type of person, let me recommend My Drunk Kitchen to you.
Basically the channel is Hannah Harto attempting to cook while getting progressively more drunk. She herself is adorable, as well as very positive and caring. If you can take the pu s, it's good for a weekly laugh.
Hannah at some of her best:

Now, this isn't a channel of it's own, but a series ON a channel. In this case, the channel is SoulPancake. SoulPancake can be funny but honestly I'm not so much in to their stuff. Some of it is just random and not very fun or funny. But what I DO love is KID PRESIDENT.
He's funny, he's maybe all of 11, and he's currently on a campaign to make 2013 an awesome year.
Best par? That the kid is SO positive, despite being a "glass boy"; his bones are very brittle and break easily, but he still belly flops on things and giggles like mad.
Here, for your edification, is Kid President:

Anyway, these are some of the videos I look forward to seeing every week or so as they come up. I'm always looking for new and cool things, so if you've got suggestions, comment below! (Please no ball-shot videos or stupid foreign music videos, though. I'm tired of that stuff.)
