5 Videos To Watch This Week On YouTube!

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.

5 Videos To Watch This Week On YouTube!

Firstly my apologies for not having this section up as regularly as usual. I have been doing NanoWriMo and it has took over! 🙂 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. 🙂

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.
