That cuts through minds and wills

Sarah Z usually does pop-culture and fandom type videos but her latest one is about capitalism and the way brands use their social media presence and advertising in 2018, it was really interesting and she delves quite deep into its history and made me thing about a lot of things. I'd recommend it and also would want to hear what other people think.

I have to share this video because it made me actually full on cry laugh. It's got some familiar faces like Tomska and Dodie but I think Reb makes it so damn funny.

Do you make mistakes or do you make a change?

Interesting interview (brief mention of Dan and Phil near the beginning):

I don't have much to say about the video itself except that I'm glad she took the break she needed, and I enjoyed how respectful and honest she was while still maintaining her brand of humour.

What I mainly took away from this is that the more youtubers I see taking breaks, announced or unannounced, and whether that becomes permanent or not, it's almost a necessity at this point to avoid the really bad, maybe even really public, burn outs or breakdowns, and to be able to maintain a career. It's a pattern I've at least seen with people who seem to actually be passionate creators rather than people grovelling for mostly money and fame. And I also think it just adds to the fact that youtube is such a shit place to create, whether that be the people on the platform or the platform itself, and while I think that breaks or burn outs and the like can be a natural part of the process as a creator feeling your way around what your creating, youtube is a bit of a cesspool of toxicity which just adds fuel to the fire. I do think people like Liza--or others who have taken breaks and honestly spoken about it like Elle Mills--speaking out is important and a good conversation to have, but it does shine a light on the fact that youtube is weird and unstable and often toxic.

I'm a big fan of Molly Burke and have been watching all her videos since the Shane Dawson series she was in last year. She has a lot of great content and I've learned so much about the blind community from her videos. She's so inspiring, and also just seems like a great person all around.

I came to post the video from today specifically, which made me cry and feel a lot of things. Trigger warning for anyone who deals with anxiety, specifically around attacks at large gatherings (which has been my main source of bad anxiety for the past few years, but I've started to conquer this year). The video ends fine - it turns out there was not actually an attack. But damn, hearing the story from her perspective, as not only a human being, but also with the addition of her being blind in this situation, is really intense; but there's also moments that restore faith in humanity, with the people who helped out, and it just made me feel a lot.

Here's the video if anyone's interested:

i haven't watched kingsely in so long, he basically dropped off the face of the earth and i didn't know he made a "comeback". I mean there's only 3 videos on his new channel but I came across this video. His thoughts are probably really popular amongst the youtube community and i think its worth checking out

Good on him and all of them, I was just reading The Guardian’s article and “specialist police spent two hours unsticking protestors from windows” made me snort. Also this guy looks how I feel when I actually think about it :snow:

I just discovered the channel Squirmy and Grubs a couple days ago and I wanted to share it here. I've been making my way through the videos from earliest to newest and am obsessed.

The channel is a man with SMA (spinal muscular atrophy) named Shane and his girlfriend Hannah. It's been so interesting to explore the relationship and normal daily life of people in an interabled relationship, and the videos are just so entertaining in general. They both have such great senses of humour and their humour is so compatible and it's just so lovely to see their love. I strongly recommend the channel for anyone who just wants some entertaining videos of two people very much in love, and also to get such positive exposure to an interabled relationship like theirs.

I'll just link the first video on the channel here (they pretty much just jump right into vloggy videos so you can watch any video really, but the beginning's a good place to start as any):





I also want to bring attention to the channel Special Books by Special Kids as this was the channel that led me to the Squirmy and Grubs channel a couple days ago (youtube randomly recommended me a video this channel did on Hannah and Shane, which then led me to their channel).

I've only watched the one on Hannah and Shane, and then the video I'm about to link below, but the reason I wanted to link this (aside from the channel being what looks to be a great organization) is because I wanted to share yet another way Youtube has completely fucked up. The video below explains it all (this is from a few months ago, but I'm pretty sure the issue has not been resolved), but basically Youtube turned off the comments on all videos on this channel because of policies on removing comments on videos involving children due to issues with pedophilia, etc. I think this has been mentioned before in the main thread in relation to Louise Pentland's videos, but as the video below explains, this issue is pretty devastating to this channel. The channel features people with disabilities and conditions and gives them a platform to communicate, and the comment section is very important to them because it's a place of positivity for these people. Here's the video, where they explain it way better than I could:

my favorite YouTubers include:

Daz Black - british comedian who does sketches on his main channel. they actually kinda remind me of Dan in that he plays all the characters and does minimal costuming. strays into the horror genre. i really LOVE his channel Daz Games where he does reactions to some rather odd videos and plays the wierdest games ever, but also some regular ones (fortnite, the sims, ect.)

Captain Sparklez - minecraft youtuber and car enthusiast and musician-y person. i love him lots. got into him for his minecraft videos, stayed for his second channel Jordan Reacts where he does Top 19 posts of different subreddits. he's just geniuely funny and adorable. i haven't checked out his vlogging channel or music channel. soz.

Chris Ramsey - magician and puzzle solver. every Wednesday he solves (or attempts on the rare occasion he fails) to solve a complicated tangible puzzle. usually very expensive and well made pieces. almost always level 8 or above (or the japanese equivalent). also does magic tricks and just seems really chill and cool.

Hannah Hart - i'm sure you know her. lesbian youtuber who is perfection and known for My Drunk Kitchen.

Try Guys - sure you know them too. love them loads.

Shane Dawson/Ryland Adams - i don't usually care for vloggers but these two are kinda good at it.

Cystik1 - Morgan is a youtuber who expierenced some massive growth when he did a review of the 5 Feet Apart trailer because he himself has cystic fibrosis. his channel is a very real look at his life with the disease and he is just a geniunely funny and sweet guy who knows who he is and what he wants to get out of his time on this earth. suffers from depression, body image issues and a few other things and is very real and frank about it. games alot. i follow him more for his tweets/insta, but he's a really great guy.

those are the youtubers i love alot. there are some people i'll watch one time or maybe do a little scroll through their videos, but these are the ones that i usually check out as soon as they upload something new. also love watching a good medical documentary on youtube as well.
