This thing called YouTube, we just can’t handle it…
This thing called YouTube,we must get round to it.
We ain’t ready.
Crazy little thing called YouTube.
There has been an abundance of lovely video fishies swimming about in the big blue ocean that is the internet this week, and here at TenEighty HQ our fishing rods are ALWAYS primed and ready. In they went and out came some lovely, scrumptious & slightly slimy videos for your delectation. Also an old boot we’re still working out what to do with. Anyway…
Hey ‘Sup – Francesca Georgiou
Our hearts are swelling to ridiculous sizes right now.
Francesca Georgiou performs a song she wrote for her close, late friend with gorgeous animations and gentle tones.
We won’t type too much about this video, but we urge you to give it a watch and celebrate life. Adequate mustard, Fran. Adequate mustard.
Summer For Grown Ups – Tiny Bag Productions
Frances Morrow-Brown AKA Tiny Bag Productions brings to us a reminder of the devastating truths of adult life. Not feeling enthralled to click? Then, you failed the test.
If you’re not having all that much fun this summer in the blazing heat, then Frances’s hilarious anecdotes and witty #bantz will vastly improve your life*.
*may not improve your entire life, but you will have a brilliant 3 minutes and 36 seconds
Avis De France – Lou Foulkes
Louis Foulkes, you cheeky son of a gun.
Drawing us in with a lovely montage and music from a beloved 80’s sitcom (we’re so old) and then you go and get all deep on us!
Lou talks about the hierachy of YouTube culture, subscriber counts and categorisation in the beautiful French countryside. He eloquently and candidly goes through his views on the topic of statistical talent, asking some very poignant and interesting questions.
Give it a watch if you like pretty things and deep thoughts. THINKING IS COOL.
PROCRASTINATION – Eve Cornwell
#RELATABLE ALERT! #RELATABLE ALERT!
It’s true, us “YouTube Folk” (a term beautifully coined by Eve Cornwell herself) LOVE a little bit of procrastination. In her new video, Eve makes us do the giggly noises by talking about all the different things she tries to get done, but fails due to pure, unadulterated procrastination.
Whether it’s watching videos of cats (or people) falling over, or you just can’t get enough Zalfie action, we often find ourselves distracted from day to day tasks by the wonderful creation that is the internet.
Fortunately here at TenEighty HQ we are particularly diligent and always finish what we- ha, look at that silly cat!
The Exploits of Maddy Vian -Drawing Days- – Maddy Vian’s Drawing Days
DID SOMEBODY SAY MOOMINS? YES, IT WAS MADDY VIAN IN HER LATEST VIDEO. AWKWARD EXPOSITIONAL FIRST SENTENCE OVER.
In her latest offering, Maddy takes us on a walk to work with her, talking about how she relates to the scenery that surrounds her and how the Moomins book she’s currently reading has influenced that view.
We think she’s adorable and injects a bit of magic into our subscription box. (No, that doesn’t mean she’s fixed it, but at least she’ll make you smile!)
WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT FROM US? Oh, yeah some more of those lovely videos…
This week Rowan Ellis talked us through her skin routine for combating acne and spots. Now, not only do we commend her for sharing her tips and tricks and helping others, but we think she speaks in such a gentle way. It’s almost as if you’re being told a story. Lovely.
Jenny Bingham also got super lovely and candid with her newest video about how to deal with anxiety and stress. She shares tips and ways to calm yourself down and improve your mood and is a giant sweetheart inside and out. Go watch it and feel brilliant.
