As 2023 draws to a close, we asked a few artists to summarise their year via their favourite YouTube videos for a special run of Show and Tell year-end roundups. Kicking things off is A.ON.

Slater | Kelly Slater highlight reel | Maverix

I started surfing in my early teenage years, and this year, I had the good luck to surf Mexico’s Barra de la Cruz, and surfed the coast of Peru for almost two months.

Surfing is like medicine to the body and soul. It brings an enormous sense of calmness after the adrenaline rush.  It’s great exercise and keeps you close to nature.

The ocean is an automatic platform to reflect and be in the present! I strongly recommend it to everybody!

In this video, you can see the phenomenon of Kelly Slater surfing. And like music too, style is above everything else…

The Insane Biology of The Seahorse

I always saw the seahorse as a humble and beautiful animal.

Early this year, while watching this video, I learned it is so fast in hunting for prey that you can’t even see it as it moves so fast.

It has the highest accuracy rate for hunting among other animals.

There are many other incredible facts about that creature, and you can find them in this video.

Frank Zappa on Crossfire – Best Parts

A really interesting interview to watch. This was a crucial moment in the history of the music industry.

Thanks to Zappa, the freedom of speech in lyrics was kept active within music. This was a moment when politicians and religious figures in American conservative culture tried to cancel certain song lyrics.

Important fact: thanks to Zappa, the “parental advisory” sign on records started to be implemented.

Gabor Mate: The Childhood Lie That’s Ruining All Of Our Lives

Gabor Mate is a spiritual wizard, more than just a psychiatrist. I find his videos very important to watch to understand ourselves, where we come from, and where our feelings and traumas come from. He is a great guide on navigating life, especially in the difficult moments you can have!

T.I. Part 1 | The Eric Andre Show | Adult Swim

I became obsessed with Eric Andre Show when it came out back in 2015. His silly comedy is like a psychedelic trip of satire! It can be too loud for some people. Season 6 has aired this year, and it still hits! I definitely recommend it!

Alejandro Jodorowsky – The Tarot

I discovered the Tarot and Tarot reading from Jodorowsky’s style of reading. I started following him in 2014, but I came across reading it to close friends since another friend, who reads it, pushed me to read it to him.

I stopped being in contact with it, but I grabbed the deck a week ago and am glad I have. When science and pragmatic sense are not enough in life, you can find the Tarot as a great tool to illustrate where you are at in this moment of life. Also, all the cards are so mesmerizing to watch

Sniper vs Brui5er | Male Final | EBS Krump 2023

I was lucky enough to be present at that same event! I didn’t know Krump until I went there, and I was so hooked! The intense and energetic way of expression gave me the chills! I would for sure go to another Krump event!

Michael Moschen performs The Triangle

Actually, I have come across this fantastic video while gathering the links for this “end of the year” feature, and I am happy I have. An excellent way to end this article!

If you are a musician or into music or circus, this video is a must!
