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. 🙂
In this episode of Buzzfeed Unsolved Ryan and Shane talk about the very puzzling and interesting case of The Mary Celeste.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Here in a new feature on this blog. I hope it will give you some interesting and varied viewing. I am by nature a very curious person, always have been since I was a child and I love to learn so my viewing can be diverse as hell, you have been warned! I hope at least some of the topics will be of interest and I plan to do this weekly so without further ado and rambling from me, here is five YouTube video recommendations to watch this week. 🙂
This powerful song has been put along alongside some powerful images here. We see activists who are ordinary people as well as well-known activists for the rights of people of color like Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela. Highlighted too are the rights of women and LGBTQAI+ people. A very emotional watch.
I am very socially-conscious but I hadn’t heard about Juneteenth until very recently. This video explains very well something I must look more into. Please do watch this video which talks about the day and it’s connections to slavery and the emancipation of so many people of color. It isn’t easy obviously to watch because the fact people were treated in that way is utterly disgusting but we need to acknowledge that terrible history and do better by our brothers, sisters and non-binary people of color.
I am a huge fan of Aquaria and this is the opening episode of her On/Off series where she was out in the Philippines last year. A very interesting series detailing many of her work engagements from last year.
We all need a moment to relax, destress and get ourselves ok again. I have recently got into ASMR as a way to relax and I love videos by Mads Asmr. In this video, Maddie is scratching, raking and pinching and plucking away your stress.
I am a huge Sister Act fan and this scene with Sister Mary Clarence/Deloris Van Cartier and Sister Alma never fails to make me laugh.
