    This is Dan Bell's DEAD MALL SERIES.

    Over the past year, this has become my favorite Youtube series.

    I love mall culture. I'm not as into it now as I was back in the late 90s and early 00s, but I still find it interesting. I have a lot of nostalgia for malls, especially K B Toys (going there with my amazing grandma for special treats), Suncoast Video (I'd check out their Martial Arts section every Sunday on the way home from Church - still the best Martial Arts section from any video chain), EB World, and Walden Books - I bought a lot of cool things at these stores, things that defined a lot of the hobbies that I still have.

    When I first moved away from home, I didn't have a lot of friends, and missed my old places, and would spend a lot of time at the Glendale Gallery in So Cal. I could go to the mall and see the same stores I was familiar with, and it made me feel comfortable. It was there that I developed this SF theory that there really is only one Uber-Mall, and every door to a mall in our world leads to a certain part of the universal Uber-Mall.

    This YT series focuses on dead and dying malls. The host, Dan Bell, is well spoken and presents the material with a strange kind of reverence for the subject, incorporating vaporwave and mall music, history, and pop-culture.

    Highly recommended

    Okay, not YouTube, but here's a nifty, well-done little thing: https://vimeo.com/231678261

    As much a celebration of Disney as a catalogue of its tropes and patterns, thematically or visually or otherwise. Didn't notice a mention of dead/absent/abusive parental figures tho!

    ....and when you need to push the sound out of your head in lieu of something else, might I offfer:

    This is super long and very NSFW at times--and I know it might not get much play here on matchcut--but it's an absolutely outstanding summation and breakdown of the whole stupid meme "debate," such as it is. This covers everything....everything....oh yeah, everything. She's hilarious, she's brilliant, and this is a damn magnum opus.

    Another Contra fan! Yes. She is great. Her stuff is great. I haven't watched the video yet, think I'll have to wait for the weekend to have the time/space to process.

    Watched it last night.

    She's one of the few YouTubers I subscribe to / get notifications for.

    I love her absurdist sense of humor ("Stop breaking into my house") and that her videos look similar, but never quite the same. AFAIK, she shoots every single vid in the same room, by herself, but the production values are high enough (for YouTube, anyway) that you don't notice.

    She was interviewed on Chapo awhile ago, too: https://soundcloud.com/chapo-trap-ho...apoints-111818

    Worth a listen if you're a fan.

    Yeah, Contrapoints has been spreading within my immediate group of friends like wildfire recently. Some of her stuff, like the video on Incels, is bookmark-worthy in terms of easy access for quick sharing.
