5 Videos To Watch This Week On YouTube!

Hi everyone! 🙂

Here is my five video suggestions for this week. With Christmas coming up this week, it is Christmas-themed. 🙂

History

From Biographics here is the story of the true and absolutely adorable saint who inspired the creation of Santa. Really interesting to hear the story and how the creation of Santa Claus has evolved over the years as well as some lovely Santa-related stories.

Geography

From Geographics we have lots of information about Rovaniemi in Finland and its connection to Santa Claus and Christmas. Again really, really interesting.

Music

Here is a wonderful Christmas classic The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole. Absolutely gorgeous! 🙂

From a classic to a new release. Here is the new release Love This Christmas by Rick Astley. Very fun.

TV

From 1963 here is The Judy Garland Christmas Show where she is at home with her family. Many guests feature and lots of Christmas songs are sung. Great show, very fun.

Hi everybody! 🙂

I am back with another 5 video suggestions post for you today:

Social Issues

This very interesting video by Vox explores the problematic history of casting predominantly white actors in the roles of Asian characters. The fact it ever happened and the fact it happens still today is an utter disgrace.

Books

I am listening to a lot of Agatha Christie audiobooks while I am writing at the moment. This short story was one of Agatha’s books I hadn’t heard of before but of course it’s brilliant. David Suchet and Hugh Fraser who are pretty much the ones I mostly think of as Poirot and Hastings due to the TV adaptations are performing and narrating.

Drag/TV

Season 13 of RuPaul’s Drag Race is starting soon and recently we met the queens who will be participating. It seems like a great cast. I of course have a few early favourites but they all seem cool.

History/Mythology/Supernatural

Christmas is coming so it seems a good time to watch a bit about the history of Krampus, Saint Nick’s nemesis. It was really interesting to hear the history of Krampus as I do not know much about them and learning about all the countries who have celebrations which are Krampus-related.

Music

From 1973’s Top of the Pops here is the Christmas classic Merry Christmas Everybody by Slade. Very fun tune.

Hi everyone! 🙂

Still catching up with this series. Sorry for the slowness. 🙂

Here is my five video suggestions for this week:

History

Here is part 2 of OverSimplified’s animated story of The French Revolution. I find these really great and I plan to watch more of them at some stage. Really accessible way to learn history.

Sport

There is a channel I have been watching a lot recently called espmadrid on YouTube. On the channel you can find lots of horse races from various different years which as a horse racing race I very much enjoy. It is also quite relaxing to watch while I am writing but that could just be me so I have three videos from the channel. First up the 1997 Murphy’s Gold Cup Handicap Chase which was won by the amazing Senor El Betrutti in fine style.

Next up we have the 1999 Tote Becher Handicap Chase. A very comprehensive win by the brilliant Feels Like Gold.

And finally in horse racing we have the Tote Becher Handicap Chase from 2000 which was won by one of my favourite horses in horse racing history the superb Young Kenny.

Music

To end, here is a Christmas classic with Christmas around the corner. I present to you all Wham! with Last Christmas:

Hi everyone! 🙂

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! 🙂

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! 🙂

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.

Hi everyone! 🙂

It is that time of the week again. Here is my five video suggestions for this week.

Politics

American politics have very much been front and centre recently. This great video by Vox presents the presidency of Barack Obama and shows just how vital it is to have a great, strong president at the helm. Really interesting watch.

Staying with politics and Vox, here is Vox’s case for the President Elect Joe Biden. Again really interesting and will be of much interest especially to people at the moment.

Film

Lately I have found a great channel with James Somerton’s channel. In this episode James talks about the connection between horror films and the LGBTQAI+ community. Very informative and intriguing.

Music

You can’t really go wrong with Jamiroquai for a good bop and Space Cowboy is a classic. Love the music video too.

And when you need a break from dancing, here is a classic power ballad Get Here by Oleta Adams. Amazing music video as well.

Hi everyone! 🙂

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! 🙂

Yes, it is that time of the week again. Here is my five video suggestions for this week:

Music

Get into the Halloween spirit with Rockwell’s Somebody’s Watching Me. The music video is really cool and the song is so catchy. Perfect for the season that is in it.

Continue with the spirit of Halloween with this amazing music video set in a haunted house by Backstreet Boys to their song Everybody (Backstreet’s Back).

Continue the Halloween dancing spirit with the classic that is Michael Jackson’s Thriller. This music video has everything, great song, great storyline, great dancing, great styling, great make-up and just brilliant all around. The previous video was inspired by this video trivia fans.

Film

This is a fantastic video with lots of facts about The Rocky Horror Picture Show such as its previous title and casting info from Minty Comedic Arts. Really interesting.

In this video by World of Micah, we see some of the filming locations from Salem and Marblehead where Hocus Pocus took place. I seen this film so many times when I was younger that it was really cool to see where some of it was filmed.

Happy Halloween to you and yours! 🙂

Hi everyone! 🙂

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

Politics

In this video Tyler Oakley talks to Brandon Kyle Goodman about the upcoming Presidential Election in America and explains how your one vote could make all the difference. Really informative and interesting.

Make-Up/Drag

In this video, Bob The Drag Queen does a look using Party City supplies and RuPaul’s Teal the Show Wig. With assistance from Free The Drag Queen, Bob creates yet another fantastic look.

Musical Theatre/Film

With Halloween just around the corner, it is the perfect time to enjoy Todrick Hall’s take on Hocus Pocus called Hocus Broke-us. It’s amazing and a lot of fun. So well put together. Todrick and the entire cast are excellent.

Music

I love both Queen and Panic! At The Disco so this is perfect. A really great version of Bohemian Rhapsody from Panic! At The Disco’s The Death Of A Bachelor Tour.

Here is a throwback for you all. A wonderful performance of Nancy Boy by Placebo on Top of the Pops in 1997.

Hi everyone! 🙂

It is that time of the week again! Here is my five video suggestions for this week:

Music

I have been a huge Scissors Sisters fan for a long time and Take Your Mama was one of their songs back in day (Jaysus, I’m old! :-)) that you would hear everywhere. Brilliant song, brilliant music video. 🙂

I think I went on a bit of a nostalgia trip this week because Mika is another artist I have been a long-time fan of. Relax, Take It Easy is very much an anthem kind of song, very festival-like and the words really we all need to do sometimes. Again great bop and an equally great video. 🙂

I feel there is a pattern emerging here because I am also a long-time fan of Ne-Yo. If you don’t know my age by now, you are probably beginning to guess it. Our music definitely tells on us! 🙂 This is Ne-Yo’s Beautiful Monster, excellent music video, brilliant song. And quite a cool song for a Halloween playlist too. 🙂

Fashion

Thank god I finally came to the present day! 🙂 This is Moschino’s Spring/Summer collection 2021. The clothes are gorgeous, they always are with Moschino but what really gets me about this collection is the way the show was created with puppets. Very inventive and creative by Jeremy Scott and his team. Really fun. Very storytelling. 🙂

Make-Up/Drag

I am absolutely loving Bob The Drag Queen’s Addams Family Series at the moment. In this episode, she does a make-up tutorial of Morticia Addams. Absolutely stunning! 🙂

Hi everyone! 🙂

It’s that time of the week again! Here is my five video suggestions for this week:

TV/Music

In this really interesting video, reigning Eurovision winner Duncan Laurence talks about his experiences since winning the contest last year. I could very much relate to what he was saying about coming from a small town.

Music

Kill The Lights by Alex Newell & DJ Cassidy with Nile Rodgers is just so good to dance to! The beat is amazing, Alex’s voice is sensational and this video is just perfect too. I dare you all not to dance to this! 🙂

TV

I was reading about this new show It’s A Sin which is set to air in 2021 on Channel 4. I am definitely excited to watch this. Russell T Davis is an absolute writing genius and an early inspiration to me as a writer though I am nowhere near as good as him. I love Years & Years and seeing Olly Alexander from the band is in this is really cool. He’s a really good actor too. I remember he was brilliant in Skins. I love the Pet Shop Boys too so everything really works for me here. The cast looks amazing in general and the story is incredibly important too. Below is the trailer for the show:

Make-Up/Drag

Here the amazingly talented season 8 winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race Bob The Drag Queen (and I have seen Bob live at Christmas Queens in the past and she was superb that night) doing her Aunt Fester version of Uncle Fester from the Addams family. Really great make-up and really great costume by Bob’s drag daughter Free the Drag Queen.

Drag Performances

From one amazingly talented Drag Race winner to another, this is Aquaria’s first show which took place in Mexico City following her win on RuPaul’s Drag Race season 10. Everything about her show here I just adored and the support acts were really amazing too.
