This week I kind of just watched videos. A lot of videos. So many videos. So instead of having a share section of videos, I’m just going to plop them all here and say enjoy.
Also if you don’t like YouTube, I was reminded that the privacy-focused front-end to YouTube, Invidious, exists. The site that I used to use is down, but my partner uses yewtu.be, which just needs the video ID to find the same videos.
The channel iilluminaughtii is always interesting, and I’m amazed at how much researched content they put out weekly. This week I watched videos about how D.A.R.E. was a bad school program, The problems with the Lisa Frank empire, a year old video about kawaii culture, and the weird right-wing propaganda of Prager U Kids.
Speaking of Prager U, it must just be that week since Zoe Bee has been doing videos on dumb conservative kids books, Prager U and the alt-right pipeline, and why apparently it’s a dunk to say that leftists want to avoid causing harm by helping people.
I learned from F.D. Signifier about the objectification of black men. He appeared in a Salari video about how masculinity is a prison. Storied did a quick rundown of Aztec mythology. And Wisecrack talked about Disney Adults and if Disney is a Religion.
Watcher made makeup the way that Cleopatra would have. And Ghost Files is coming in September!
Finally I just watched silly things. Like North of the Border sculpting the coolest/most cursed bowl of fruit ever. And some John Mulaney audio clips taken out of context set to Disney Villains. The latest Jacob Geller, describing how Every Zelda is the Darkest Zelda.
If you made it this far, why not share this newsletter with a friend? Or share with me some of the things that you found that you liked this week. Either way, I’m thrilled!
