Recently I was browsing Youtube and came across a Youtuber by the name of LiveFastDiePoor. While the name seems a dime of dozen on Youtube, don't let that deceive you and bypass his channel. LiveFastDiePoor runs a show called Randomland. How can I describe Randomland? Just imagine if the guy who creates all those little handheld books filled with nothing but random facts decided to expand upon that by doing a video series, with each video being on expanding the history and knowledge behind the random fact.
Basically, LiveFastDiePoor has a YouTube series called Randomland where he talks about, what else? The various random things at Disneyland. He goes over various subjects from the history of the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse, finding the secrets behind Pirates of the Caribbean, and even trying to locate the various "Poop Gates" of Disneyland (I'll let you figure out what I mean by that on your own )
LiveFastDiePoor's videos are informative and short enough (With most of his videos being around 5-8 minutes long and rarely going over 15 minutes. While giving off his loving passion for Disneyland, he also likes to inject random humor to keep the viewers entertained a bit after a little rambling on his part. I don't know about you, but those random chuckles he gives me really makes his videos all the more entertaining. While a lot of his information is stuff a lot of us already know, his videos would be a perfect introduction to some of the secrets of Disneyland to those who are not hard to the core bone Disneyland fans like some of us are. They're informative enough so the viewer learns a bit, funny enough to keep the viewer watching, and short enough as to not waste a lot of the viewer's time. If you haven't seen any of his videos, I'd recommend some of these as a starter pallet to his type of video shooting, editing, and humor as a whole.
A brief overview of some of the lesser known abandoned attractions of Tomorrowland with a lot of focus on the remains of the Motorboat Cruise's docks.
Locating several of the smell cannons, or "smellitzers" along Main Street which pump out delicious scents all along the sidewalks.
Talking about the Raiders of the Lost Ark truck in front of the Indiana Jones Adventure queue.
A simple overview of the rise, use, and fall of the Peoplemover whose tracks still remain hovering over Tomorrowland today.
If you've been wanting to get a friend or family member well acquainted with a lot of the history, facts, and lore behind a few things at Disneyland, Randomland is definitively a YouTube series you should show them. Informative, funny, and short, they're the perfect way to get across the basic ideas and facts to someone you know. And even if you know a lot of the facts, history, and lore behind every inch of the park, you should still watch his videos anyways. His passion for Disneyland matches the passion of many other fans, and that love for his videos leaps off the screen and starts to run a little on you and may make you crack a smile to see how happy he is to be sharing all this information with as many people as he can over the internet.
