It is that time of week again. Here is my five video suggestions this week:
First up is Luther Vandross’ Stop To Love. This song is mine and my sister’s favourite Luther Vandross track. It is a really great bop and the video is brilliant, wonderfully cheesy and the whole way the standing on the vehicles thing was done was really cool.
Next we have X Factor semi-finalist Brendan Murray’s cover of Harry Styles’ Watermelon Sugar. Produced by Dylan Connolly, I think it’s a really great version of the track and the video is great too.
This is Gladys Knight’s bond theme License To Kill. Bond themes often have that amazing dramatic vibe to them and this song and music video are no expection to that. Wonderful. I love the song, a pure classic. Gladys voice is superb on it and I adore her outfit in the video.
This is a classic English Grand National from 1973 where Crisp was narrowly bet by a fast-finishing Red Rum who ended up making history by winning three English Grand Nationals. Amazing race made especially by two brilliant horses. R.I.P. to the amazing Grey Sombrero.
In this excellent tutorial, beauty influencer Jackie Aina does a stunning soft glam look using inexpensive products. Absolutely incredible look.
It is that time of the week again. Here is my five suggestions to watch on YouTube this week:
Lately I am getting into watching TikTok compilations and I’m especially drawn to compilations which deal with social issues and showing the everyday prejudice/ignorance that goes on in society in both a thought-provoking and entertaining way. This amazing compilation shows the shit trans people have to put up with. A brilliant compilation.
YouTuber Anthony Padilla does a series where he spends the day with people from many different walks of life and backgrounds. In this episode, he is talking with asexual people. Really great episode with lots of personal stories and information from a really great series.
Here is a song we all probably need a lot right now and in general to be fair. An absolutely stunning performance of What The World Needs Now by the legand Dionne Warwick from 1966.
I have been a huge fan of Alanis Morissette for years and this is a classic music video by her. Love the song, love the video, I present to you all Ironic by Alanis Morissette.
On this episode of Buzzfeed Unsolved Supernatural, Ryan and Shane talk about the Lizzie Borden murders when they visit the house where the murders took place to see if there is any ghosts there. Really interesting but watch it in the daytime! 🙂
It is that time of week again. Here is my 5 video suggestions for this week:
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:
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.
This video shows you the real-life house behind the hit show Downton Abbey and informs you about the house’s history. Very interesting.
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.
Hope you are all well. Here is my five video suggestions for this week:
In this very interesting interview with Emma Thompson on BBC Newsnight, she speaks about disgraced film director Harvey Weinstein and sexual abuse and harassment of women in the industry as well as the discrimination women face in the industry by men in more powerful positions.
Here is a classic music video, Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit. A great headbanging tune with an equally fabulously headbanging music video.
This is a song I really love by Tracy Chapman and the music video for Give Me One Reason is brilliant. Very understated and perfect because of it.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Justin Mikita show us around their gorgeous home in this video. In the video we get to see their adorable dogs and a picture on the wall of when they were leaving their wedding and we also find out that the house was originally owned by Gwen Stefani.
In this video, Mojo counts down the 20 roles traditionally played by men in the theatre which they feel are the hardest. Really interesting with lots of musicals both old classics and newer classics making the list.
It is that time of week again. Here is my five video suggestions for you all this week.
This week the amazingly talented Chi Chi DeVayne who appeared on RuPaul’s Drag Race passed away at the age of 34. It is incredibly sad and this video is a tribute to Chi Chi on the RuPaul’s Drag Race channel on YouTube. From season 8, here she is lip syncing against Thorgy Thor. Rest in peace Chi Chi.
Here is a very relaxing ASMR video by an amazing ASMR artist Silver Hare. This video includes sound therapy, chakras, a cleansing of your negative vibes and many more calming triggers.
This video from Goodful is a 10-minute video especially for anxiety. Very, very relaxing and is great for targeting anxiety specifically if you need your meditation that day to be more centred on anxiety in particular. Once again relaxing words are provided by John Davisi.
This video is so creative and the song is a great bop. What more could you want? Absolutely love this. I present to you all Play by Jax Jones and Years & Years.
This is mine and my sister’s favourite Mariah Carey track Vision Of Love and the video is as equally dramatic and fabulous! 🙂
Hi all! It is that time of week again. Here is my five video suggestions this week for you all to watch. 🙂
Here is a classic. So many of us have danced to Whitney’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody at many a party but here is the video which is equally as amazing and as vibrant as the track. Very fun.
From a classic to what I would consider a modern classic. Clown by Emeli Sandé is so beautiful, touching and I relate a lot to the lyrics. The video, like the song, is very thought-provoking and is perfect.
Francisco Solá and Lucrecio Robledo dance the tango here brilliantly with wonderful passion. Absolutely stunning.
This is the cast of the theatre version of Sister Act starring the absolutely incredible Patina Miller as Deloris Van Cartier/Sister Mary Clarence. An amazing performance of Raise Your Voice on The Paul O’Grady Show.
This short clip is of a young miniature horse running about chasing the guy with the camera and looking super adorable. Love this clip. 🙂
It is that time of week again. Here is my five recommendations to watch this week:
This video talks about many signs to watch out for in regards to gaslighting. It is something which I have faced in my life and I think it is important that people know the signs because it can be incredibly dangerous when one doesn’t know them as I know from experience myself. Keep yourself and your mind safe y’all. It can be fragile even though you think it never could be.
Here is a great video about things which can be helpful mainly in health situations. I think I’m going to miss using my butter to ease my pain. Main advice from here: go to the hospital!
This is a great bop by Janelle Monáe. I love the video of Make Me Feel too which is so fun, creative and a celebration of pansexuality and panromanticism.
Featuring queens from RuPaul’s Drag Race alongside the fabulous Lizzo, this smash Juice is great to dance to and is a fantastic, fun video too.
I found this a very interesting story about the famous photograph from 1932 called Lunch atop a Skyscraper. This short video speaks about the story behind the photograph. Many men from different backgrounds literally risked their lives while they were working as construction workers on the Rockefeller Center. Actually the photographers did too. While it is thought that the actual photograph was staged, there is still no denying that these men were up there regularly working in a very dangerous situation and were certainly heroes. The photographers even were to do it for the day! I would never! Very interesting video.
This wonderful and powerful speech by civil rights movement activist Martin Luther King in 1963 is a definite must-watch. Sadly things have not changed much since then but it is great to see this trailblazer talking out against discrimination and adversity and promoting a coming together of everyone.
This very interesting video shows the long, long history of women putting themselves further for the presidency in America. A lot of the early occasions where women went for the presidency I didn’t know about so I found this video really intriguing.
Some of the commentary on this video is possibly heterosexist but that obviously doesn’t take away from the wonderful, entertaining and musically historic performance of Waterloo by ABBA which brought the band to the mainstream in 1974’s Eurovision Song Contest.
Staying with the Eurovision, let’s go to my home country of Ireland when in 2018 Ryan O’Shaughnessy performed Together. Alan McGrath and Kevin O’Dwyer performed some absolutely beautiful dancing and the whole team just done amazing. Stunning. Still melts my little heart to this day. 🙂
Just so much fun this is! I love the joy of this track in the film. Watch as the sisters smash I Will Follow Him.
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.
Relax and enjoy a haircut this week courtesy of RIVER ASMR. Super relaxing!
