The nights grow darker…
The moon goes all red (for some reason), many VEDIS series come to an end, the thicker coats come out to play and people start speaking and writing in a poetic and fancy way- or maybe that’s just us, sorry.
October is upon us! The month of spooky Twitter names (we typed ‘TenEighty HQ’ into a name generator and received: ‘Spooky Troll-enEighty Hell-Q’ just fyi) and pumpkin spice EVERYTHING – yes, we know we’re basic and we’re proud, k?
YOU KNOW THE DRILL, WE’VE GOT VIDEOS AND WE’RE GONNA SHOW YA THEM!
Enter Sandman / Master of Puppets (Metallica Medley) – Brett Domino
Who here loves keyboards? Oh, everyone? We thought so.
Our favourite pair of awkward musical humans Brett Domino and Steven Peavis of The Brett Domino Trio BLESSED our screens this week with their rendition of Metallica’s (\m/) Enter Sandman and Master of Puppets.
INCREDIBLE keyboard drum fills, keytar (YES, KEYTAR) solos and endearing awkwardness that’ll make you want your very own pocket-sized Peavis- this video from the super talented boys of Brett Domino Trio will satisfy your every need. Or at least some, anyway.
A Levels, Adulthood, Reading Slumps, Pancakes. – justkissmyfrog
THE Q+A TO END ALL Q+As. Well, not literally but we really enjoyed this Q+A, okay?
Leena Normington came to us this week wearing glasses (tres sexy, we must say) and eating pancakes while answering all of the burning questions she’s received about reading, A level results and the highs and lows of being an adult.
We don’t think it’s gross watching you eat pancakes, Leenz. We just wish you’d share them next time.
THE POWER OF MAKEUP | Cherry Wallis – Cherry Wallis
Cherry Wallis, you’ve made a DARN interesting video here, you cheeky so-and-so.
Inspired by NikkieTutorials, Cherry makes up half of her face, leaving the other half natural and un-touched. She highlights at the beginning of the video the importance of self-worth and embracing your natural beauty (you pretty things) whilst also being able to express yourself through your make up.
Also, can we talk about how AMAZING Cherry is at applying lipstick?! On fuh-leek, gurl.
Making Up My Mind // intro – Bealerrr
Speaking of make up, here comes Emma Beale with a super-rad-cool new project Making Up My Mind YES, PUNS- WE LOVE IT.
Emma has decided that she will not apply any make up for the duration of the project, in which she will be uploading videos throughout the month of October discussing the experience of being make up-less and critiquing the attitudes and relationships we have with make up in a contemporary society compared to the previous ones.
HASH. TAG. DEEP.
Texting Random People with Daniel J Layton – ChewingSand
We have been giggling our little TenEighty bottoms off watching this video from Hazel Hayes this week.
Joined by Daniel J Layton, Actor (and Janet Jackson enthusiast), the two prank each other by swapping their phones and texting people.
Now, we know that may not sound like that much of a prank; but boy, oh boy is this video full of hijinks and merry-making! (We checked an online thesaurus and couldn’t resist.)
Blocked toilets, professions of undying love and YouTube fame – this video runneth over with mischief . Give it a watch if you love messing with people anywhere NEAR as much as Hazel does.
So, that’s that! Or is it…
We mentioned it last week and here it finally is! Ewan Mcintosh‘s short film Anhedonia has dropped and it is GLORIOUS. Give it a big ol’ watch.
One of our favourites Lucy Moon of ‘meowits’ fame uploaded a video this week about viriginity, our attitudes towards it and what losing it actually means.
And getting RIGHT into the spooky season already- cheeky chappy Mark Ferris uploaded a video this week showing us all of the adorable and hella spoops decorations he’s bought in preparation for Halloween this year. Go watcheet!
So, there we have it you beautiful bunch of YouTubites! All done. But, what did we miss? Go ahead and tweet us @TenEightyUK or on Facebook at TenEightyUK and let us know if you thought any videos should have been in the round-up this week.
