5 Videos To Watch This Week On YouTube!

Hi everyone! πŸ™‚

Here is five more video suggestions to watch on YouTube this week.

Music

Here is a classic Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley. Good cheesy fun and I think the bar person in the music video is brilliant.

I was a huge fan of Steps when I was younger so this brings back memories! Here they are with Deeper Shade Of Blue. Great music and love the outfits.

Music/TV

I love the Eurovision Again idea and was very pleased to see 1990 being one the years shown as that is when I was born. Such an entertaining show. Years gone on and all but Liam, you done us proud! πŸ™‚

Books/Supernatural

This video from Slapped Ham presents books which are thought to be cursed and speaks about the history and the stories which surround them. I don’t believe in it all but I still don’t think I would like to read them or own them all the same! πŸ™‚

History

This is the first part of an animated video showing the history of The French Revolution from OverSimplified. A really informative and entertaining way to learn history indeed. Very creative.

Firstly my apologies for not having this section up as regularly as usual. I have been doing NanoWriMo and it has took over! πŸ™‚ So I will be putting up a few of these posts during the week to make up for that so expect lots of video suggestions. πŸ™‚

True Crime

In this episode of Buzzfeed Unsolved Ryan and Shane talk about the very puzzling and interesting case of The Mary Celeste.

Mythology

In this episode of Monstrum Emily Zarka looks at the Nuckelavee from Scottish mythology. Monstrum is a great series which I came across recently and combines a great mixture of supernatural, literature and history and this episode is no different. A great watch.

History

In this episode of Geographics (another great series along with Biographics which I have come across recently) Simon Whistler talks about the tragic history of The Tower Of London.

Relaxation

Another very relaxing video by Sarai from Peace and Saraity Asmr with invisible scratching, audio scratching, scraping and raking of all your stress and tension.

In this video from Maddie from Mads Asmr, she repeats one of her signature relaxation techniques of taking a look at something which has got stuck in your eye. Very relaxing and I have definitely needed to relax with NaNoWriMo.

Hi everyone! πŸ™‚

It is that time of the week again and with the US election, what a week it has been! Here is my five video suggestions this week:

Politics

With everything which has been going on this week there is quite a few political videos in the mix. This video from TEDEd explains the electoral college system for y’all with animations.

Staying with politics, here is a history lesson from Vox about the history of the Republican Party and how it has changed from the time of former president Abraham Lincoln to the time of former president Donald Trump (I couldn’t resist but it is pretty certain now thankfully! :-)). A really interesting watch with a lot of information packed in here.

This is an interview by Bob The Drag Queen with Tiktoker Christian Walker who is black, gay and a Trump supporter. In the interview many issues are discussed like racism and Covid-19. A really interesting watch and Bob is just such a great interviewer.

Make-Up/Drag

In the final episode of Bob The Drag Queen’s Addams Family Series, Bob does a make-up tutorial inspired by Wednesday Addams. Fantastic as always! Have absolutely loved this series. The amazing dress for the look was provided by Elias Matso, a young creative who appears in the video.

Music

Quite an apt song for the week which has been in it while we have all been waiting for those final tallies to come in! It is also just a really great song with a great message and music video. I present to you all Coldcut featuring Lisa Stansfield with People Hold on.

Hi everyone! πŸ™‚

It is that time of week again. Here is my 5 video suggestions for this week:

Music

Today would have been the legend Freddie Mercury’s birthday. To remember him on the day, I present to you the classic, incredible music video of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody:

Music/TV

This week Canada’s Drag Race came to a close with the amazing Priyanka winning the crown. Here is the three finalists Priyanka, Rita Baga and Scarlett BoBo performing a billiant performance of RuPaul’s U Wear It Well in the finale.

More from music/tv here is a throwback to 2018 when Dalton Harris brought the house down with his version of Beyonce’s Listen on X Factor UK. Simply amazing, the best performance of the season.

TV/History

This video shows you the real-life house behind the hit show Downton Abbey and informs you about the house’s history. Very interesting.

Theatre

Last week we had the hardest theatre roles traditionally performed by men, this week we have the hardest theatre roles traditionally performed by women. Once again a fantastic selection and a very fun watch.

It’s that time of week again y’all! πŸ™‚

 

Music

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! πŸ™‚

 

A classic music video here from a-ha with Take On Me. Amazing animation.

 

Dance

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.

 

History

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.

 

Relaxation

Relax and enjoy a haircut this week courtesy of RIVER ASMR. Super relaxing!

It is that time of week again y’all! πŸ™‚ Here are five picks to watch this week! πŸ™‚

 

 

History

In this episode of Geographics, the history of The Cecil Hotel is investigated where many tragic incidents have happened over the years. A very interesting episode. I had heard a bit about the horrific history of The Cecil Hotel prior to watching the episode but learned so much more here.

 

 

Fashion

I love 60s fashion. It is one of my favourite decades from fashion history so this video was great.

 

 

In this episode of Out Of The Closet, RuPaul’s Drag Race runner-up Peppermint (highest placed female contestant in Drag Race herstory, you go girl! :-)) shows us some of her amazing fashion. A really interesting watch which looks at both looks from her run on Drag Race and outside of the show.

 

 

Hair

I found this really interesting. I have long hair and often I tie it up in a ponytail but I don’t really think about the history of the various ponytail styles so this was really interesting to get to see how the ponytail has transformed throughout the decades.

 

 

Music

I absolutely love this song by Sara Bareilles. It comes from the musical Waitress. I can relate a lot to the lyrics of this song. And the video is beautifully done too.

 

 

5 Videos To Watch This Week!

Yes y’all, it is that time of week again! Here are some video suggestions to watch this week. πŸ™‚

Social Issues

 

In this video, author James Baldwin is debating with William F. Buckley Jr. about race issues in America in 1965. A wonderful speech, clearly from the heart in the face of much adversity.

History

 

We are in the grips of Covid-19 at the moment. This video speaks of numerous pandemics and viruses which have happened throughout history, some of which lasted/are lasting a very long time.

Music

 

I love this song and here we see Aretha Franklin blast it out at Rockaplast in 1968. A great performance and great to get a chance to see such a classic performance.

 

In this performance at Build Series, Wicked star Kristin Chenoweth performs a cover of The Eagles’ Desperado with pronoun changes that make the performance very beautiful. A great cover.

True Crime

 

 

In this episode Ryan and Shane take a look at the mysterious death of a woman who died on her honeymoon. Very interesting watch.

My Short Story Wedding Bells Appears In This Month’s Bray Arts Journal!

 

On Monday night my sister and I had a lovely night out at the Bray Arts night where the launch took place of the Bray Arts Journal. It is the second volume of the new journal. My story Wedding Bells was in it which was great. πŸ™‚

On the night, there was also a very interesting talk about the Theatre Royal entitled Theatre Royal Remembered by Conor Doyle and Mairin O’Donovan, who sang at the Theatre Royal, was accompanied for a few performances by Retrofix. It was a very entertaining night.

‘North Wicklow and The Easter Rising – not a bullet was fired’ Event In Bray Libray

1916-rising-flag-pin-badge

 

My sister and I recently went to an event as part of the 1916 events in Bray library. It took place on March 23rd and was entitled, ‘North Wicklow and the Easter Rising – not a bullet was fired’. It was really interesting.Β Sponsored by County Wicklow Library Service and Bray Cualann Historical Society, many leading figures and less known figures connected to the 1916 Rising were discussed by historian Brian Hughes as well as all the various connections to North Wicklow. There is a great assembly of photographs from the time of the various faces associated with the Rising as well as many of the places in Bray as they were at the time. There was an interesting photograph of two volunteers pretending to be tourists which gives an insight into the dangers people faced at the time if it was discovered that they were volunteers. The Proclamation is also discussed and how you would know the original because they had no letter Es to put in it so they used an F instead and put a bit of tape at the bottom of it. There was also an interesting overview of the times running throughout the talk. I know it was different money back then but my sister and I did have to smile when he said that Β£1 would get you 600 cigarettes back then.

There is another chance to catch the talk at the Powerscourt Arms Hotel in Enniskerry on Thursday, April 14, at 8.30 p.m.
