Oh boy, can't wait for Rob to tell us about "hyper nationalism"

I mean if you look at the list of contributors, I think it will be very interesting.

Don't agree with the premise but should be an interesting watch.

I think Christianity in America has always been more or less hyper nationalist.

Finished the first episode of this doc about "The Troubles" in Northern Ireland last night. I went into it with zero knowledge of the subject outside of listening to "Sunday, Bloody Sunday" by U2 and watching the movie Belfast. Very good so far

Same. I fell down a rabbit hole after watching this (probably for the wiki thread). Check out I, Delours, centered on the lady who help kidnap the mother of 10 and more from the republican point of view. The actual footage is from interviews she gave to a BC prof as part of a project.

Hard to believe that it could still go sideways at any time.

Been enjoying Peter Santenello's Youtube videos lately. He's done tasteful and respectful vids of himself living with Ukrainian homesteaders, as well as in-depth looks into the lives of Hasidic Jews in the US (and abroad), US gang and underculture, etc.

Here is a look into the life of a man named Titus who lives an off-grid (not in the trendy "trad" way) lifestyle in appalachian Kentucky.

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

I have seen a couple videos from him and mostly enjoy them. The villages one is surprisingly good.

I, too, have enjoyed Peter Santanello's stuff.  He must have found the key to unlocking the YouTube algos if we've all been watching him.

Kinda got burnt out on it after a while though.  They're all kinda the same story, just different people.

In the same vein, I really enjoyed watching the Vice "Abandoned" series on YouTube:

Netflix has a new doc about the recording of We Are the World, called The Greatest Night in Pop.  The footage is good and it's pretty impressive how they got all those stars to show up in one place at the same time.  There were lots of interesting mini-stories within this show and of course it talked about the efforts of trying to get Prince to show up.  Still no explanation of what Dan Aykroyd was doing there.  Drugs?

I only saw the trailer but what really stood out to me was how pissed off Bob Dylan looked to be there. I mean maybe that’s just what his face looks like? But he seemed pretty much over the whole thing. Including standing there silently when they impromptu broke out into Day-O and brought a tear to Harry Belafonte’s eye (rest in peace King)

I just finished this and I can't emphasize enough how much I loved it. This is the perfect mix of wholesomeness and nostalgia. Even Waylon Jennings being a giant man baby didn't ruin this song or documentary.
