5 Videos To Watch On YouTube This Week!

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!

5 Videos To Watch This Week!

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 On YouTube This Week!

Week 3! Here is my five video suggestions this week! πŸ™‚

Dance

This is a very momentous moment in Irish Entertainment history. I present to you The Riverdance from Eurovision 1994:

 

Music

Hozier’s Take Me To Church music video is so emotive and highlights so much that needs to be highlighted. Not an easy watch but a brilliant and powerful video.

 

Social Issues

In this heartbreaking video, singer and former X Factor UK contestant Misha B talks about racism she experienced on the show and how it impacted on her mental health.

 

 

Relaxation

To help relax you and rid you of stress, here is a great ASMR artist Sarai from Peace and Saraity ASMR. In this video, Sarai helps you to relax with a variety of sounds. Each sound is given a certain amount of time and the descriptions of the sounds go up underneath so you can find any helpful sound easily which is very helpful. Very relaxing.

 

 

History

The following video from Weird History talks about the murder of Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth in 1865 and the aftermath of the murder. Very interesting and concise.

 

5 YouTube Videos To Watch This Week!

YouTube considering moving child content to YouTube Kids - 9to5Google

 

 

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. πŸ™‚

 

Music

 

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.

 

Social Issues

 

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.

 

TV

 

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.

 

Relaxation

 

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.

 

Film

 

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.

Putting My Original Song Up On YouTube!

Very true! Very true!

Very true! Very true!

I uploaded my first original song on YouTube tonight entitled, “Silenty”. I actually wrote it when I was 11 or so and I was all obsessed with how Charles invented the word boredom in Bleak House and I wanted to invent my own word! πŸ™‚ I used to write a lot of songs when I was younger as did my best mate Sarah. We used to write them and sing them. Real good memories! πŸ™‚ Silenty suited the song because it’s about a girl never achieving her dreams in the music industry (I watch a lot of reality TV!) and constantly going for auditions but getting nowhere and suffering with the fact it isn’t happening but bottling it up hence Silenty. Staying silent and bottling all the pain up. I was very proud putting it up tonight and I had to blog about it. If you get the chance, please do check it out and let me know what you think. :-):

Union J’s Jaymi Talks Food In This Week’s Heat Magazine!

Jaymi Hensley spoke about food in Heat this week!

Union J’s Jaymi Hensley appeared in Heat’s food section this week to discuss his favourite crisps, his favourite TV chef and what the best meal that he has ever eaten has been amongst many things cookery and food-related.

Speaking about his favourite meal that has cooked, Hensley 23 said, β€œMy peanut butter on toast is good! Or a microwave meal, and I love a chicken curry.”

It is really surprising about the microwave since he used it in the words of bandmate Josh Cuthbert β€œa few too many times in the course of his meal” on Union J’s YouTube version of Channel 4’s hit TV show Come Dine With Me, Come Eat With Union J which if you have watched already you should. It’s a good bit of fun. πŸ™‚

Speaking of the best meal he ever ate, he replied, β€œThe catering on tour is so amazing! We had caramelised pork, which sounds rank, but it tasted amazing.”

Asked what his favourite crisp flavour was, he replied, β€œPrawn cocktail all the way! The really cheap 30p ones.”

You have got to love an economical man, don’t you?!

He also revealed that his favourite TV chef was β€œIna Garten from The Barefoot Contessa. She does proper homely cooking.”

He also said mayonnaise was his favourite condiment and admitted that he has mayo even with roast dinners while he said he didn’t like steaks. He also stated that he would make Spaghetti Bolognese if four friends came around for dinner because β€œit goes down well with everyone. And I’d make my own bread.”
