It has been an exciting week for TenEighty!
Not only did we officially launch our Patreon page (pls give us all the monies), but Pokémon GO was finally released in the UK! We were feeling a bit left out watching the US, Australia, and New Zealand become the ultimate Pokémon masters, so we’re glad the Pokémon Gods decided to bless us with the ability to catch our own. We’ve started a collection of Psyducks, which are obviously the best Pokémon out there.
With all the excitement, you probably missed out on the amazing content our faves have uploaded over the past few days. Luckily for you, there are a few members of the team (who shall remain nameless) who aren’t Pikachu fanatics, and they’ve managed to compile this article of the best videos from the past week.
There’s no better way to kill time while you wait for your phone to recharge and to regain the feeling in your legs.
1, 2, 3 | A Song For Evie and Vincent – ItsWayPastMyBedtime
Carrie Hope Fletcher officially released her debut novel On The Other Side this past week and to celebrate, she decided to treat us with this oh-so-beautiful original song about the book’s main characters!
It’s always a treat when Carrie grabs her ukulele and this video is no exception. It’s like Evie and Vincent have their own theme song and we think that’s so cool! All our favourite book characters need to have songs written about them because – let’s be honest – that’d be the coolest thing ever.
Congrats on the book release, Carrie!
I Don’t Know Where to Begin – Rosianna Halse Rojas
2016 hasn’t necessarily been the best year, has it? A lot has happened and, to put it frankly, it’s hard to wrap our heads around most of it. Where do we jump in? Is there a certain time when discussion will be most effective? There a lot of questions circulating around and they’re questions Rosianna Halse Rojas has been asking herself as well.
We appreciate Rosianna discussing these questions from a personal perspective, asking herself when the best time to delve into issues is and analysing the emotions that have appeared throughout the past few weeks. It’s an important video that’s helped us gather our thoughts, and we suggest you give it a watch if you’ve been trying to navigate the waters of what’s been happening.
How To Be Inspired – KickThePj
We’ve all been there. You sit down with a pen and a piece of paper, ready to write the best short film of your life, and… nothing. Nada. Zilch. Your mind is blank. The struggle to find inspiration is real, so it’s a good thing PJ Liguori‘s here to help us out.
PJ understands that it’s hard to be creative sometimes – like, even he, the guy who came up with Oscar’s Hotel, hits a wall from time to time. He gets it, and that’s why he’s made a list of ways to help us regain our creative spark. From listen to music to free writing, PJ’s got the advice for you, so grab that pen and paper and take some notes. We promise you’ll be writing that Oscar-winning short film in no time.
Hello Thursday – mrheavyhand
Hello, Thursday. It’s nice to meet you. Well… umm… not really. We’re sorry, but you’ve never really been one of our favourite days of the week.
We do, however, love this video by Ant Lightfoot. An open letter to Thursday, it’s a video that’s honest and gives viewers a glimpse into the thoughts that have been going through Ant’s head recently. It’s simple, but the simplicity gives it a certain beauty, and it’ll leave you wanting to see more of this type of video from Ant.
We know we do.
What You Took – Original Song – Francesca Georgiou
We started the Round-Up with some music, so what better way to end it than with some more, this time courtesy of the lovely Francesca Georgiou!
What You Took is an original song from Francesca, and it’s hopefully the first of many she’ll be sharing with us. It’s a beautiful ukulele track that’ll leave you constantly hitting repeat it (we might have listened to it
once or twice a million times), and we highly recommend you give it a listen. Seriously, you’ll fall in love.
Francesca, we know how to play a mean triangle if you ever want to collab.
Phone still charging?
We’ve got a few more videos up our sleeve. Cats are truly one of life’s great mysteries – and best treasures. The latest Simon’s Cat video shows you why.
Matilda Lewis teamed up with her friend Tilly to bring us this impactful spoken word video. Watch it and prepare to question the way you see the world.
We can’t get enough of Twenty One Pilots (Josh Dun and Tyler Joseph are total baes), and it looks like Luke Cutforth can’t either! Check out his parody of the band’s latest single, Heathens… or should we say Vegans?
