A mixture of different types of things such as documentaries, TV shows, cartoons and music videos from the 80's and early 90's (promo videos only). Just mix of things to forget about everyday things, and remember the past, the good old days! Also I will have some current news stories to prove that the MSM is lying to the people of our country! I'm so tired of all the lies, but I will mostly feature good and happy things!
