BUILT from eBay [video build x4]

builtbyebay

So, I’ve become a bit of a YouTube junky lately. My almost nightly ritual consists of plonking myself down on the couch with a hot coffee, firing up the iPad, plugging in my over-ear headphones, and catching up on all of my favourite subscriptions. Some of those include /DRIVE, HoonTV, Jay Leno’s Garage, Marchettino, Mighty Car Mods, Motor Trend (Roadkill and Dirt Every Day), and of course Petrolicious. For too long I imagined YouTube’s sole existence catered to wannabe celebrities uploading videos of themselves doing something stupid in the hope of going viral. Now I’m more than aware that it’s become quite the replacement for television, with professionally produced channels releasing regular content aimed at specific demographics, making their viewers crave new content just like you would for Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones.

It was during a browsing session that I stumbled across a 10-part series called “BUILT from eBay”, which chronicled the process of four different shops (aligned with 4 different magazines) building four different cars using parts bought only from eBay. While the concept is pretty transparent as being one big commercial, the content is quite entertaining. Hell, you get to see four completely different cars being built without having to read a single word, what’s there to complain about?

  3. Часовня в честь святого князя Александра Невского, действующая на территории Тюменской воспитательной колонии (поселок Винзили), на днях вновь начала работу после реконструкции. Настоятель Свято-Ильинского храма отец Олег Квашнин регулярно посещает ребят, беседует с несовершеннолетними осужденными. После многие изъявляют желание покреститься или исповедоваться. В начале богослужения в колонии проходили в специально оборудованной комнате. После нескольких визитов […]
