Videos to lose your mind to during finals.

Live Jelly Cam – Monterey Bay Aquarium

Enjoy a live feed of jellyfish and their “graceful trailing parts” (as per the video’s description). Calming, oceanic, atmospheric music undulates like tentacles. Submerge yourself in the world of your notes as if you’re an anemone in a coral reef.

C418 – Minecraft Music Slowed Down With Rain

Comprising tunes such as “Subwoofer Lullaby,” “Moog City,” and “Mice on Venus,” reverberating against a gentle fall of rain, this video will take you right back to nostalgic times when your proudest achievement was your Minecraft realm. Harness your former tireless creativity as you explore the realm of your biochem exam.

Fiona Apple – On I Go (Official Audio) played on a loop

“On I go, not toward or away / up until now it was day, next day / up until now in a rush to prove / but now, I only move to move.” Sound familiar? Probably not. As finals week comes around you probably do feel as if you’re in a rush to prove. But playing Apple’s cathartic, drum-beating anthem on a loop until it rewires the rhythm of your brain may counteract some of that stress. One Bwog staffer vehemently recommends this method.

Lightmatter OST – Music by Ulrich Slot Christensen

As a comment on this video aptly puts it, this song “evokes a sense of nostalgia and wonder.” When was the last time you felt wonder, dear reader?

Chill Drive – Aesthetic Music ~ Lofi hip hop mix

Nothing better than a classic lo-fi mix with a Simpsons GIF and tracks by Kind Puppy, Mister Decaf, and Lonely Alpaca, among others. When is lo-fi going to become a Grammys category?

Rainy Day at the Coffee Shop Ambiance – 8 Hours of Rain, background chatter and Jazz Music

We miss you, Max Caffé. This video, complete with the murmurs of customers, is the closest thing we can get to you these days.

EarthCam – Abbey Road

While not quite a YouTube video, this livestream of the London, England street where the Beatles once famously walked is the perfect mix of niche and ambient. Watch the morning come over Abbey Road while you’re still stuck in Butler at midnight — Here Comes The Sun, indeed!
