Geek & Sundry Vlogs, on YouTube (originally also on Geek & Sundry, but they've been removed from that site)
G&S Wiki; YouTube
There are a bunch of people who each have their own vlog about their particular expertise in different areas of geekdom, I guess. So far, I've only watched two of these series (and one crossover special). I suspect that if I ever bothered to watch any of the other vlogs, I'd find at least some of them interesting and/or entertaining, but I'm lazy and stuff, so I haven't. And I feel bad about that.
For quite awhile, this was the only one of the vlogs that I watched, since Jeff is familiar to me for playing Vork in The Guild. Though he doesn't talk about anything in particular, he basically just answers questions viewers have submitted, I guess. And he rambles a lot, kind of straying from the original point of the question, though he tends to circle back to it by the end of the ramble. And he does all this while sitting in his closet. Anyway, he's dryly amusing. At the end of each episode, he asks questions of his young son (who is off camera). The kid sort of reminds me of the baby from those Capital One commercials with Jimmy Fallon.
This is Nika; Tumblr; YouTube
WordPlay: One day a link for her vlog caught my eye on facebook, so I watched it, and then immediately watched the nine episodes that came before it. Since then, I've tried to keep up with it whenever new episodes come out. The vlog is about writing, and seeing as I like to think of myself as a writer, it's interesting to me. I don't really know Nika from anything else, but she's funny and talented and I would say kind of adorkable. I haven't read any of her actual writing, but I like the snippets of it that she reads on her vlog. She also provides some writing challenges, in which I have thus far never participated, but maybe someday I will. I dunno. Anyway... she just seems pretty cool and fun to watch. And hopefully I'll actually learn something about writing.
Story Mode: At the end of 2013, Nika stopped doing "WordPlay," at least on Geek & Sundry. Supposedly she's continuing that series own her own YouTube channel, but I haven't seen any new episodes there, yet. Meanwhile, on G&S, she's started this new vlog about video games, which I haven't watched, because I just don't have the opportunity to play a lot of games, so... it's really not of much interest to me.
Who Killed Elliott Morgan?
This is a Halloween special from 2013. It was pretty funny (and weird). There were several vloggers who were all suspects in a murder mystery, but the only one of them familiar to me was Nika. (Elliott Morgan is someone I'd never even heard of, but he's on another YouTube channel, SourceFed, which I'd never heard of until I watched this.)
