12 Books for Black Women | letsdxrxthy
We love vlogs about books. They make us so much smarter and, by extension, poorer when the Amazon deliveries get taken out of our bank balance.
Dorothy Chirwa has a vlog telling us her picks for books that are good for black women to celebrate themselves. She talks about how much she’s come to appreciate and love representation and this is a list that revels in that freely. The Hate U Give is a book on this list and one that comes with the co-sign from TenEighty as a book you should definitely read.
This is a wonderful video, Dorothy, and our Amazon basket is nice and full, ready for payday!
DOCTOR WHO SERIES 11 TRAILER REACTION | Angela Innes
Have you heard the good news? Doctor Who has regenerated, and is now a woman, played by the wonderful Jodie Whittaker! What great news!
Angela Innes is a big ol’ fan of the show and this is a video that makes that so wonderfully obvious. The glee shown throughout every second is infectious and speaks to what having a female Doctor will mean to a lot of fans all around the globe.
How many Americans will gel with the new Doctor’s Yorkshire accent? Can’t wait to hear their impressions of it at all the conventions.
Ariana Grande – God is a woman | doddleoddle
Ariana Grande’s new album rollout is nothing less than stellar, with songs like No Tears Left to Cry and God Is A Woman both having incredible visuals to go with them. As well, the merch for the album, called Sweetener, is to die for.
They make this song their own with the interplay between the three, very different voices layering on top of each other, creating something wholly fresh and interesting. Choosing different people for different parts gives them all new meanings that you can glean. This is a cover that has something for everyone.
GOG: Preserving Gameing’s Past & Future | Noclip
If you’ve ever downloaded a PC game, you know that it can be a ballache to prove you’re the owner of said game. That’s because of a thing called Digital Rights Management. Piracy is a big deal, people trying to “crack” through the DRM to make it free for people. The company GOG is the leader of doing DRM-free gaming, trying to make it super easy for people to buy games.
Danny O’Dwyer of Noclip has done this documentary about the intricacies of the Poland-based company, showing the audience all of the steps to publishing a game on GOG. This is a fascinating insight into a smaller known facet of the gaming industry.
Do You Need To Go To University? | The Mandeville Sisters
University is one of those things, like high heels or cheese; what works for one person won’t work for another. For many, the concept of university brings you out in a rash. Amelia Mandeville and Grace Mandeville investigate whether you need to go to university in the first place, looking specifically at STEM subjects.
This is the sort of video that will inspire people to make decisions to better their lives. Enjoy watching!
Want more? Of course, you do!
Can you name all 50 states? Maybe Daniel Howell and Phil Lester can. In this video, the both of them do their best to work out if Alaska is a state and how to spell Mississippi properly. They do all this while on their tour bus, as they’re in the middle of their North American tour. Good luck, good boys!
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a behemoth, unlike anything modern culture has seen before. With that in mind, Karl Smallwood takes us all the way back to the long forgotten 2008 release of the first entry into the universe, Iron Man. He talks us through how Jeff Bridges dealt with the fact there was no script – “not well” is perhaps the way we’d describe it.
For women with a certain bust size, finding clothes that fit properly can be tricky. Amelia G is someone who struggles with this problem and has scoured the depths of the ASOS Fuller Bust section to bring some of her personal choices to her audience. It’s a super informative video that will help a lot of people!
For everyone who knows – and people learning this for the first time – 25 to 30 years ago British kids’ TV shows were creepy, like ridiculously so. As time has passed it’s gotten less creepy, but some shows have scarred an entire generation. Nightmares, tears, the whole nine yards. Jacob Trueman and Mike Trueman talk us through the downs of what we had to deal with.
