The owl did it!
Have you heard of the Peterson murder case? You may have recently seen The Staircase pop up on Netflix, which tells the story behind the death of Kathleen Peterson and whether her husband is guilty of it. It’s full of twists and turns, and it’s so gripping that you forget it’s been 13 hours since you moved from the sofa. There’s this whole theory about an owl being instrumental that isn’t in the documentary. It’s so interesting that something this bizarre doesn’t even make the cut. Watch it!
Onto the Round-Up!
COMPLETE JOURNAL TOUR (2015-2018) | Maja Anushka
Journaling is something that’s a beautiful art form when done right. Maja Anushka is one of those people who’s been able to do so. Did you know journaling is different from writing in a plain, boring diary? This is definitely news to some people, we’re sure. (Including us.)
There are pages upon pages flowing with beautiful art that encapsulates the sort of person Maja is. Her artistic style is there for everyone to see and it’s a beautiful thing. Here’s to a semi-regular journal update series we’ll be watching, while filled with jealousy. (In the best possible way.)
Pope Francis Hates Gay People, You Idiots | JacobTrueman
Has a title ever so eloquently put across the video’s message before?
Pope Francis is seen as a progressive Pope, but Jacob Trueman is here to give us his thoughts about that. Wherever you may fall on the religious spectrum, Jacob comes at the topic from a standpoint of deep research and the way in which he puts his points across is to be applauded.
It’s great to see Jacob back in our sub box, and we hope he doesn’t leave too much of a gap between this and his next video.
BERTIE LOOKS LIKE HEY ARNOLD’S GRANDPA – episode 5 | Bertie Gilbert
Bertie Gilbert is making vlogs again, in case you didn’t know. This is episode 5, and it’s filled with the future. Does it have flying cars? No. Does it have self-lacing shoes? Not exactly. Does it have Bertie talking to a variety of people about what the future of our world might be? Yes, audience. Yes, it does.
There’s talk of space travel, but there’s also talk of death… So, in short, it’s a Bertie Gilbert video and we love it!
I DRESSED LIKE KIM KARDASHIAN FOR A WEEK! MY LIFE IN HER OUTFITS | Anastasia Kingsnorth
Kim Kardashian, however you feel about her, is a style icon. At this point, it’s a fact. Taking risks with her fashion more and more since marrying Kanye, she has really come into her own.
Anastasia Kingsnorth has taken note of what Kim has been doing and, because of it, we have this wonderful video. She takes us through different parts of her week, going to Tesco, going to the park, etc. while dressed like Kim. It’s super interesting to see the way she tries to get the looks exactly right and succeeds, for the most part.
WHY ALFIE DEYES IS COMPLETELY IGNORANT | JaackMaate
Now, is this a contentious video title or is it? In the past week, Alfie Deyes released a video about him trying to live on one pound for a day. It’s a video that garnered a lot of backlash from subscribers and non-subscribers alike, and is being accused of belittling the lives of poverty-stricken people around the country and the world.
Jack Dean is someone who’s known for commenting on the negative aspects of YouTube and its creators. This is one of those times. The video is less shouty and sweary than other videos from Jack and that is why it deserves to be talked about.
As he wraps it up, he talks openly and honestly about his reasons behind being annoyed at the way that Alfie has conducted himself. This is talked about rationally and with a clear head, bringing an inordinate amount of great points that help to cement his argument. Since this video, Alfie has taken the original video down and posted an apology.
Khalid brought out his debut album American Teen in 2017 and it was one of the highlights of the year. The biggest single from that body of work by far is Location. Georgia Box has released a wonderful cover of it – enjoy it in all its musical glory.
Taylor Swift has embarked on her Reputation World Tour, currently doing her thing in the UK. Sam Carr managed to snag himself a choice position at Taylor’s concert in Manchester and he brought his camera along to share the experience with his viewers. This video may contain freak-outs. You have been warned.
June is #PrideMonth and Joanna Peters is here to talk about what Pride really means to her. In this video, she brings in her audience who have their own ideas of Pride and what it means to them, personally. It revels in the wonder that is #PrideMonth and we are here for it.
Byron Denton has breathed new life into the Instagram Controls My… challenge, taking on a photoshoot. Six polls with two options to choose from. Notting Hill or Shoreditch? Natural light or flash? You’ll have to watch to find out the results.
