i, as a browser of the internet, come across things from time to time. some of them are good. here are some of those!
probably most of these (that aren't already music) have good soundtracks if they do have them, but any soundtrack that particularly stands out will be marked with a ♫, which will link to official location(s) you can listen to it (some don't have offical non-buy uploads, so you'll have to search for those on youtube or something)
hawaii part ii - i say this is The Best Album of All Time. i mean, it probably isn't, but i like to say it is. if you don't want to wait through the backwards in the mind electric, skip to 2:40. also variations on a cloud was separate but pretty much a 12th or 0th song so included. also added some informative things!
relatedly, miracle musical (band name in english) is mostly composed of members of tally hall, who also make (made?) good music (and tally hall's internet show is a sketch series similar to the style of monty python's flying circus, and the boralogues are recordings of them on tour edited in a similar style oh god and most of the members have gone on to do solo work and MORE STUFF sorry i have to stop writing at some point go do some research yourself)
red vox - good musics! in the garden is a good example song, then i'd recommend another light or realign (if another light, stranded is pretty much a 9-minute another light song)
mint jams - found this one time, listened to it, now kinda my standard for when i need to put background music somewhere
17776 - What football will be like in the future (also sequel 20020 and the still-upcoming 20021)
nes godzilla (sorry, best place i could find) - old-ass creepypasta (pretty much an internet campfire story) that i think is pretty neat. ending is a little bad though. would recommend this reading. (also the sequel replay (use first link), which has been left incomplete for a long time but it seems like the creator's working on it again (reading)) (oh yeah, and the april fools things! (read after))
xXcustomThum bnail BedYTP666Xx spongebob - a youtube poop (dumb edits of pre-existing video content) with an above-average level of insanity. the best kind (unironically)!
electric intervals and cubic cord - used in xXcustomthum bnail[...], think that but significantly longer, and cryptic bullshit instead of just bullshit.
two silly(?) song parodies(?), the boys are back (to kill you) and kiss me (kill me). both pretty horror-y i will warn you, first is goofier though.
diminish (act 1, act 2) ♫ (act 1) ♫ (act 1, youtube) - an unfiction (fiction pretending to be non-fiction) series, a let's play where someone named will plays a game made by his sibling. really good, though it is really long. but keeping up with it in real time is even longer! commonly months between uploads! had a specific warning here before that i'm not so sure about now but it gets Emotional
super ghostbusters - really silly album of bad midis of the ghostbusters theme with new "lyrics". gets pretty not safe for work very casually, be warned
nanquest - don't think i can summarize this much better than the second paragraph does here (the one starting with "the main character [...]")
vinesauce (specifically corruptions) - vocalist in red vox happens to do video game streams! [fill this in later]
add in some actual normal ytps dumbass
big data - more musics, about Technology and such. bombs over brooklyn and the stroke of return are a little harder to find than the rest so there's links
terminal 00 - okay so i actually know like. Nothing about this but the aesthetic is cool so
i love hue - little game about correctly positioning colours
michael guy bowman - more goddamn musics! i'd say just listen to one of the two newest albums first, then go explore. the discord is a very nice place too!
ripple dot zero ♫ - flash platformer from 2013. pretty good! unless you can somehow run flash in browser, you'll need to get flashpoint infinity to play it
corru.observer ♫ (all but highlights newest volume) ♫ (soundcloud, all) - game-ish-thing?? just go check it out
savaged regime - does sega genesis/megadrive remixes of various songs. theoretically you could play these on real hardware!
one - six object people are sent to an odd location to compete in a game show. what could go wrong? may hit harder if you've watched battle for dream island or any of it's derivatives, but certainly not required. also make sure to play radiohead's scatterbrain over episode 9, start it when the play button appears in the top left. additionally yes "one" is the full name of it and it is hell to search for
lucids - series about... uh... dreamscape traversal or something?? probably notably comedy but it's serious when it wants to be. all done by one guy aside from the occasional character voice done by a family member! and yes the "prequels" there are required viewing
emesis blue - it is certainly a piece of visual media that i have consumed. feature-length. knowing the game team fortress 2 could provide a bit of context but i think everything required to know is already in it
portal 2 ♫ (steam) ♫ (official website?? news to me) - first person puzzler, probably one of the best games of all time (or at least probably my favourite). no you do not need to play portal 1 before it, though a couple jokes might go over your head
celeste - platformer of the "will kick your ass hard" kind. additionally may make you transgender, scientists still have not confirmed
ultrakill ♫ - MANKIND IS DEAD. BLOOD IS FUEL. HELL IS FULL. "boomer shooter" (old-style first person shooter) of the "will kick your ass hard" kind where stylish play is rewarded and you take the blood of enemies to heal rather than health packs lying around. i am not sure how to correctly summarize just how good this thing is!
more to come... eventually...
