    Things to watch and listen to while hobbying

    Copy-pasted from 9th Age forum. Let's have a video recommendation thread for stuff to listen and (lightly) watch while painting and converting. Come contribute with your own recommendations!

    The few series I've watched through are stuff like Rome, i.e. ones you want to watch intently, so I'll keep to docus, lectures and audiobooks. Not an exhaustive list, but to get the ball rolling:

    Thanks for that tip!

    The above list is just the tip of the iceberg. Should anyone be on the lookout for any historical, mythological or natural science topic, don't be shy to ask. Chances are I've stumbled across something relevant, and all watchworthy links are saved.

    Some more of the better ones IIRC:

    Re: Things to watch and listen to while hobbying

    I always find that listening to a podcast, which is mostly entertainment driven rather than educational in nature, is the best way I can paint and keep myself occupied.

    To that end:
    WTF with Mark Maron
    You Must Remember This (a bit more on the educational side, but its mostly hollywood gossip of the time)
    The Kraken Podcast
    The Mindless Ones - SILENCE!

    I use audiobooks, usually checked out from the public library. My favorite is Rob Inglis reading The Lord of the Rings. It's epic.

    Re: Things to watch and listen to while hobbying

    I rather like having Golf on. You don't need to watch it intently and if its BBC coverage you get soothing commentary filled with amusing anecdotes.
    But I will certainly go with the flow and have historical documentaries on the go.

    Re: Things to watch and listen to while hobbying

    I don't think I have enough years left in my life to watch through everything listed by the OP!

    Myself, last year I watched/listened through every episode of the Muppet Show, proper episodes of The Flintstones and a rather long video entitled "Every Three Stooges short opening theme"
