ComforTube OR What’s Saving My Sanity

Last week, a madman with some pliers yanked some bones out of my face.

One of the teeth didn’t want to go (it fought the good fight) and ended up getting drilled out of my face instead. As a result, I’m still gummin’ down yogurt and mashed potatoes while everything heals.

Thus, my original plan of recounting the harrowing event is happening (yet). Instead, I decided to share what’s been keeping me entertained while feeling miserable.

I’ve compiled the cream of the crop from my favorite 5 YouTube channels. I do follow over 400 YouTube channels, so I’m a bit of an expert and doing you a huge favor in sharing the below.

Jazza (Josiah Brooks) – Draw with Jazza
  1. Draw with Jazza (the Craziest Artist in Australia)
    Do you want to see how to draw with homemade charcoal? Do you want to see someone add dragons to a thrifted painting? Do you want to see what would happen if Chun Li from Street Fighter had a love child with Jar Jar Binks? Here’s your man!

Trixie and Katya on UNHhhh
  1. UNHhhh with Trixie Mattel and Katya Zamolodchikova
    If you haven’t seen this, prepare for a mind-blowing experience. Will you be better or worse for the experience? I…honestly have no clue. Trixie Mattel and Katya play off each other SO well in this series that it’s physically impossible to not laugh. (Warning: NOT safe for work)
    Get started here: UNHhhh Ep 29: “Halloweenie”w/ Trixie Mattel & Katya Zamolodchikova
    This is a great one, too! UNHhhh Ep 49: “PornOh Honey” w Trixie Mattel & Katya Zamolodchikova
Linus Sebastian of Linus Tech Tips
  1. Linus Tech Tips (and the entire Linus Media Group family)
    Do you want to know what the fastest gaming computer is on the market right now? Do you want to know how to make your computer run faster with a literal car radiator? Do you want to see inside of Deadmau5’s studio and nerd out about networking? This is the channel for you. Here’s a great retrospective on something that touched all us Millennials – Windows Vista
Drawfee Show
  1. Drawfee Show
    Four friends cracking jokes and drawing nerdy art inspired by ridiculous prompts. Their pedigree from College Humor and Dorkly is very apparent and wonderful. Want to see Disney Princesses as Dark Souls bosses? Random doodle shape turned into a nude Sonic the Hedgehog reading a newspaper in bed? Or, the ever-popular, post-apocalyptic challenge where DW from Arthur becomes the big boss of a Shinra-esque corporation sucking the life out of the planet? This is EXACTLY the channel for you.
    This is a top tier video that’s a great starting point: Artists Draw Disney Characters as Dark Souls Bosses
Natalie Tran (CommunityChannel)
  1. CommunityChannel aka Natalie Tran, the Original One-Woman Comedy Channel
    She’s been on YouTube since the very beginning and she’s got a HUGE catalog of amazingly hilarious short videos. Her comedic timing and ability to call out the craziness of day-to-day life and human interactions (waiters making you pause your conversations, the awkwardness of cutting a cake for a group, why jigsaw puzzles have boring art, the craziness of ‘tell them I said hi’ when talking to a friend, and much, much more) always brighten my mood and I watch at least one of her videos a week, despite her posting only one new video in the last four years. Watch all of the below to enhance your life.
    Indoor Plant Serial Killer
    King Size (Candy Bars)
    Dealing with Multiple Sneezes

Let me know if you watch any of these videos and what you think below! And any other suggestions you have for what I should watch!

  1. I don’t think I’ve heard of any of these! I’m gonna have to check out some of these, especially the drawing ones 😍

    When I had use surgery, smoothies with stuff like carnation breakfast essentials, fruit, and yogurt were my go-to way of getting in those necessary calories to recover. Later on, soft scrambled eggs with ketchup and pancakes soaked in syrup were also good.

  2. I was spending this whole list like, “Where’s Natalie?” lol. Glad she made the cut. I’m still so glad you introduced me to her channel, it’s so great. Can’t wait to check out the two I haven’t yet been introduced to, by you.
