It is that time of week again. Here is my five video suggestions this week:
Turntables is an amazing song and music video by Janelle Monáe. It really captures our times when we are mostly all doing our best to protest against racial inequality and against oppression. It is truly wonderful and thank you Janelle for this. It is incredible. 🙂
911 by Lady Gaga is a great tune to dance to and the music video is really creative.
I have recently been listening to a lot of Rina Sawayama’s music and it’s amazing. Here is her amazing track and equally amazing music video XS.
This performance by Matthew Richardson and another equally talented male dancer is so beautiful, romantic and well put together. Performed at The Arrow Live at the Carre Theater for the Circle of Live Event, we have stunning music from The Irrepressibles with Arrow.
In this wonderful video, the history of the amazing Statue of Liberty is told. A true queen of America. 🙂
Billy Porter and cast and crew of Pose joined together to do a special version of Love Yourself. A lot of fun, I dare you not to start dancing to this! 🙂
A classic music video here from a-ha with Take On Me. Amazing animation.
This dance is great. Like a scene out of a film or a TV show. It might be actually. I’m not sure but I think it’s great anyway. I love Tango and I love it even more when it’s done well and it’s done very well here by the two women. And the 1920s outfits are absolutely gorgeous.
In this video, we learn about the aftermath of The Great Fire of London in 1666. I found it very interesting. It was something I heard about of course but I didn’t know much about it and this was a great introduction to look further into this period in history.

Week 3! Here is my five video suggestions this week! 🙂
This is a very momentous moment in Irish Entertainment history. I present to you The Riverdance from Eurovision 1994:
Hozier’s Take Me To Church music video is so emotive and highlights so much that needs to be highlighted. Not an easy watch but a brilliant and powerful video.
In this heartbreaking video, singer and former X Factor UK contestant Misha B talks about racism she experienced on the show and how it impacted on her mental health.
To help relax you and rid you of stress, here is a great ASMR artist Sarai from Peace and Saraity ASMR. In this video, Sarai helps you to relax with a variety of sounds. Each sound is given a certain amount of time and the descriptions of the sounds go up underneath so you can find any helpful sound easily which is very helpful. Very relaxing.
The following video from Weird History talks about the murder of Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth in 1865 and the aftermath of the murder. Very interesting and concise.
A brilliant night of comedy and most importantly charity fundraising. The annual Comic Relief extravaganza, which was started by comedian Lenny Henry and comedy writer Richard Curtis in 1985, had another wonderful night filled with music and sketches and lots of fun. Let’s take a look at seven highlights from this important, prestigious night:
Sam Smith & John Legend’s Performance and Music Video
The two of these artists have such incredible, powerful and emotive voices and they sound amazing on the official Comic Relief song for 2015 Lay Me Down, a duet of Sam’s song.
National Treasure Sketch
Staring Stephen Fry, Sheridan Smith and Miranda Hart as the judges of who should be added as a national treasure and starring stars such as David Walliams, David Gandy, Cheryl Cole, Russell Brand, Robbie Williams and Liam Gallagher who eventually was the new national treasure as well as Ronnie Corbert this sketch was so funny. Really well-written and very imaginative. Loved it.
James Bond Sketch
Starring stars such as Ben Whishaw, Alan Carr, Daniel Craig and Naomi Watts, the Bond Sketch was full of humour.
David Walliams’ Kissathon & His & Davina McCaul’s Smooching Session With Orlando Bloom
David Walliams broke the kissathon World Record. Also David & Davina McCaul kissed Orlando Bloom who made a surprise appearance as well.
Little Britain Sketch
Stephen Hawking and Catherine Tate joined David Walliams for this year’s Little Britain sketch. The graphics, one word: Amazing! This sketch was very original and fab.
Cassidy & Natalie Win The People’s Strictly
Cassidy Little is so amazing and he and Natalie Lowe danced this Paso to perfection. Well-deserved win.
Victoria Wood Wins Comic Relief’s Bake-Off
Beating off competition from the other finalists Gok Wan, Jennifer Saunders and Michael Sheen, Victoria Wood took the honours in the Comic Relief’s Bake-Off.
I had been saying for a while that I would go to the Bray Arts Night which is on every month here in Bray and this month myself and my sister went along to enjoy the night and enjoy the night we most certainly did! It was a fabulous night of photography, music and the spoken word. It was all amazing and I felt rather at home like it was a haven for nerdy, expressive types. I almost wanted to join them on stage!
Everyone was so talented. There was a brilliant photographer called Aoife Hester who displayed wonderful photographs of Bray Seafront and pics of Cavan which reminded me and Shar of our days living in the country, The Circle Sessions who had blues, indie rock, comedy music, thought-provoking poetry and some Shakespeare, amazing belly dancing from The Zoryanna and the night was ended with the wonderful opera and jazz instrumentals combined with the stunning vocals of Aran McMahon of Bella Notte Euro Jazz.
It was an amazing night of entertainment in the Martello and the bar was behind us all night. That was quite fab too! 🙂
