I reckon most of us have certain books, movies, TV shows, music, podcasts, and other media that we turn to when we need some comfort. These are things we’ve seen, read, or heard before — often many times — and know exactly what we’re going to get from them.Jason Kottke, What’s Your Go-to Comfort Media?
My go-to comfort media is usually video essays on YouTube. Namely video essays from folks like Folding Ideas, Sophie from Mars, munecat, and F. D Signifier. I have lost count of the amount of times I’ve rewatched the Line Goes Up video. It is one of my all time favourites, especially when I’m tired.
I recently made a playlist of all my favourite video essays, ones I like enough to have rewatched multiple times, you can find it below.
