My only objection to Oscillating Fan Youtube is that the subculture fails to provide the model, make and specifications of their fans. Above is 10 hours of a Lakewood. Next up, an hour of a Lasko-brand box fan ("Finally!!!! I found one that sounds right!!!!! Thank you soooooo much!!!!," comments Cateia Jones.)
Here's a roaring, full-spectrum fan sound that I suspect has had a lot of processing done to it (or is entirely synthetic) despite being presented as a "classic fan sound."
This one, "a recording of this soothing desk fan," has an entirely different quality, with a lot of bass and a peculiar phased sound.

Infowars’ “War Room” created a brand-new hate channel on YouTube exactly one day after chief executive Susan Wojcicki’s letter to content creators about reducing extremist content. YouTube deleted Alex Jones’s all-new garbage channel shortly after receiving reports of its relaunch from VICE.
Apparently YouTube has been removing videos of battlebots, after their system flagged the videos for containing “animal suffering”.
On the one hand, nostalgia is “a corruption of the historical impulse,” according to William Gibson. On the other hand, “Super Mario Bros.” will never not be cool. Luckily, there’s a way to satisfy that retro gaming while still keeping an eye on the future: The GameShell Kit. This thing is simultaneously the last handheld […]
The field of data analytics can get intimidating, even for business professionals who constantly rely on it. But at its heart, its purpose is to simplify. To take mounds of information and distill their insights into a single clear picture. Currently, the go-to software for painting that picture is Tableau. And if you want to […]
If you’re in the market for a stable, durable camera fully suited for first-person video, there’s a good chance that you’re the adventurous type. So why settle on a familiar name like GoPro?
