Favorite Youtubers

Oh my god! Look who’s back…

I’m shamelessly coming back to WordPress to talk about my favorite youtubers and to tell you that I’m going to try a new dynamic. I’ll try to post more about entertainment and occasional opinionated posts but as to personal posts talking about my traumas? I’m going to try to avoid them.

I feel like I finally found a way to go with the blog. I cleaned it from all posts I wrote and disliked and I’m ready to move one… I think.

So let’s go! I’m going to talk you about my favorite youtubers. Two years ago I wasn’t into YouTube. I liked watching Buzzfeed videos and conspiracy theories but that was it. Now I have gathered a bunch of channels I actually love and want to talk you about in no particular order.

Thingamavlogs

I love Disney, like love, love, love, loooooove Disney. Around 2014 I started watching videos about people who worked on Disney and their experience. That’s how I got into Sarah and her channel (the yellow shirt girl from the pic). Later I discovered she had another channel with other cool people (Patrick, Tiffany and her boyfriend Leo) about Disney and I became obsessed since then. I think is because they make me feel near the parks when I’m really a million countries away.

Thingamavlogs use their channel to talk about Disney parks, movies… basically a lot of Disney content. They’re actually really cool and I grew up to anxiously expect their videos every week. They’re my favorites of all favorites.

Practical Folks

So Practical Folks do a lot of sketches and love talking about Game of Thrones, which I would be into if I had watched past the fourth season. I know one of these days I’m going to keep watching it… one of these days…

Anyway what I love about this channel is their series Drunk Disney where they get drunk and watch Disney movies while commenting on them. When I say love I mean I probably have watched the videos more than three times, that’s how much I enjoy them. They’re really funny and the channel quickly became one of my favorite ones. Extremely recommended!

I also started watching Kenna while looking for “working at Disney experiences” (she made a video about it) It was around the same time I started watching Thingamavlogs.

I have never been into this kind of youtubers, the ones who talk about makeup or lifestyle, but she was into Harry Potter and Disney and dressed as a fairy which for me was enough to subscribe. I think that if you had asked me who was my favorite youtuber a couple of months ago I would  had answer it was her. She’s sort of the youtuber I would want to become if I ever had the courage to do something like that.

Lately she’s been having a bit of a problem for some problematic things she’s been doing (plagiarism I think) which I personally think is not being handled pretty well and I have to admit it takes a bit of the love I have for her because she still has not come through and explained her viewers what really happened. Instead, she turned off the comment section.

She’s pretty unique though and has great recommendations for anime so I say that if you’re into cute outfits, fairies, poems, Disney, Harry Potter and Anime, watch her. Also funny thing about this is that after subscribing to Kenna I realized that I was already following her on instagram long time ago.

 

The Pinup Companion

I subscribed to this beautiful youtuber like a month ago and I already love her. I have been into the vintage stuff lately so I found some videos on YouTube and instantly got caught up in Rachel’s style and funny comments. The music, the clothes, the style, I love everything about this channel!

 

Thomas Sanders

Thomas was one of my favorite viners so I don’t know why it took me so long to find his YouTube channel. I seriously don’t understand how such a wonderful person came from Vine. He’s so funny and comedy gold. Not only that but he’s super woke! It’s not only about funny sketches with his self-created characters that describe each aspect of his personality but is also about the important message that his videos leave.

 

The Milk Club

Sofie’s fashion sense is so on point! I  subscribed to her after watching some videos of 90s lookbooks, they are so accurate and you could tell she does a lot of research. I don’t actually know what else to say but the fact that she’s super cute and nice and I love watching her videos.

Probably one of my favorite youtubers and  the first american youtuber I watched. I fell in love with her Does This Thing Really Work series but never subscribed because she’s sort of a makeup youtuber and I wasn’t into that. After a while I finally ended up subscribing, her personality and style caught me! Even if she’s talking about things I’m not into I still watch it because she’s such an original person, I never met someone as unique as her and I had found myself missing watching her videos if I don’t watch them for a while.

 

Orion Carloto

I subscribed to Orion two months ago and I’m already in love with her and find myself waiting anxiously for her videos to come out. She’s style goals, funny and nice!

From books, to little artsy sketches she’s the ultimate “I want your life” kind of person.

 

Loepsie

What I love about Lucy and her channel is the way she plays with her hair recreating different styles and imitating looks from characters from movies or history. It’s basically what I wish I could do with my hair if it was so frizzy and thick and short.

Anyway, I love fashion history of not only clothes but makeup and hair so I enjoy watching her videos a lot!

Grace is Kenna’s roomie and best friend and also the reason I started reading again. Like a year ago I was super upset with the amount of books I was reading per year and decided to change that so I downloaded goodreads and also started following Grace who’s a booktuber. She’s also super cute and has a beautiful style so win win for me.

 

Anyway I follow a lot more but I think these are the channels I’m always eager to watch videos from.

If you feel like it comment what youtubers do you watch? 

Hope you enjoy and also that we read each other soon!

WEB SERIES: Call Me Katie

Photo May 31, 5 06 00 PM

Time to talk about one of my favorite things in the universe again, LITERARY WEB SERIES! YAY!

Since “Green Gables Fables” ended I had no more web series to watch, So on sunday because I was dying of boredom to the point of thinking about watching The Lizzie Bennet Diaries again I discovered this web series called “Call Me Katie”, an adaptation of The Taming of The Shrew by William Shakespeare. I read this play when I was really young because I was in love with the movie 10 Things I Hate About You. I already knew about this series actually but it never really called my attention until now.

First of all, I know The Taming of The Shrew has a lot of sexism discussion and Call Me Katie dealt with it extraordinarily and with amazing humor. The web series has 50 video, we have Katie Minola (Katherina Minola) who is a feminist that doesn’t like being called Kate and Peter Glover (Petruchio) who is the kind of guy who would ask why it’s called feminism if it’s equality and why not humanitarianism, which is a word that has its own movement, or equalitarism (he actually says this)

Anyway the adaptation goes more or less like this: Bianca wants to date, she even has three guys who like her but her mom has an explicit rule, Bianca dates if Katie has a boyfriend and Katie “hates” boys because of the patriarchy (or something like that but I’m sure patriarchy is involved) On the other side, George Bates and George Gleeson are best friends. Bates likes Bianca and their new friend Luke who just changed schools likes her too. Harry, another friend, also likes her so they decide to pay Peter Glover, who hates Katie, to date Bianca’s sister so Bianca can go out with one of them… and it goes on from that.

Call Me Katie discusses a lot of really important subjects like sexuality, feminism and sexual abuse. I think it’s a great web series. There was a moment where I was not even paying attention if they followed Shakespeare’s plot or not because I really got into it. What I really liked about it is that their characters are not perfect. From the beginning I knew Peter was kind of problematic because of his way of thinking, he meant well though. But Katie who I loved since the beginning was also flawed. Bianca who is portrayed as the perfect smart and beautiful girl has also made mistakes, I like the fact that they all have flaws and nobody is perfect.

The dynamic of the web serie reminded me a lot of Nothing Much to Do (NMTD) and you know, or not if you didn’t read my posts, that NMTD is my favorite web serie ever. I’m really happy I found this one but I’m really sad I ended it. There were moments where I would be in my bed alone laughing out loud, it’s really funny, sadly it was quite short.

See ya!
