YOUTUBER OF THE WEEK: Hart

Happy Hump Day!

I bring you nothing but the greatest. This woman is fearless, hilariously brutally honest and my hero. Her name is Hart and she gives you life!

 

It’s Hart!

 

As of now, Hart is my favourite comedienne on YouTube. She is incredibly talented and does sketches, produces her own music, and tackles serious topics. She does all of this  while strongly advocating respect for the LGBT community from the perspective of a lesbian. In fact, the video of hers that caught my full attention was her Watermelon video, which was her response to somebody asking her: “If you love women so much, how come you don’t dress like one? Why are you dressing like something you don’t like?” To which her reply was…

Starts off with her eating watermelon…

 

Then you realise SHE’S WEARING AN OUTFIT MADE OF WATERMELON!

 

…And the dancing commences…

 

And what this really proves to us is that you don’t have to wear what you love. Just because she loves watermelon don’t mean she has to dress up as a watermelon…although she rocks it.

Ladies and gentlemen that video was just the beginning. All of her videos have a lot of time and energy put into them. She educates the masses about their own ignorance (towards sexual orientation or other issues) but she does it in the most unpretentious and level-headed way.  If you’re looking for an intelligent, educated YouTuber that can make you laugh and has many substantial things to say, then I suggest you visit Hart’s channel, Hartbeat, on YouTube and forget about your project/homework/250000-word essay for a few minutes.

Yes, I may be a bad influence, but if you’re going to procrastinate might as well do it right!

Matthew Santoro Replies!

Merry Monday!

This is going to be quick. I would just like to inform you all of the greatness that was bestown upon me Saturday night.

So in case you all didn’t know, I’m a huge fan of Matthew Santoro. In fact I’ve seen all his videos and have unintentionally learnt how to mimic his cute Canadian accent.

Speaking of cute.

I mentioned him in a tweet on Saturday and, low and behold, he replies!

Is this not the sweetest thing you've ever seen?

Is this not the sweetest thing you’ve ever seen?

Excuse me while I fangirl myself into a coma.
In fact this event has inspired me to do an official “YouTuber of the Week” starring him.

Stay tuned for that!

As always, stay fresh.

Garfield’s Not the Only Talking Cat Out There

Happy Hump Day!

This is probably my zaniest YouTuber of the Week. I was meandering through Youtube, wandering the halls of beauty tutorials, humorous skits, dramatic vlogs, and weird videos about human doll-like creatures (yes, I made it into the “weird part” of YouTube once again) when I stumbled upon the greatness that is the Talking Kitty Cat series by SteveCash83 and my life suddenly had meaning.

Steve and Sylvester.

Let me break this down for you. The reason I have crowned Steve Cash as this week’s YouTuber of the Week is because of his hilarious home videos containing his pets. There’s Sylvester: the star of the show. He is a selfish, foul-mouthed spoilt brat who enjoys his wet cat food and loathes kittens. He is the most amazingly funny cat you will ever encounter, his snide comments and merciless jabs will leave you in stitches. Without him, the show wouldn’t exist. He really is that crucial. In the series, Steve has made it seem like Sylvester the kitty cat can speak English. This might sound crazy, but go check it out for yourself, it truly is hilarious. Obviously you know cats don’t talk but once you get lost in the narrative and understand the characters, you almost forget that talking cats don’t exist. The show really is that good. The other two characters are another cat named Gibson and a sweet black labrador named Shelby who, unlike her feline friends, is not able to speak English (’cause dogs can’t talk, duh). Steve does eventually create a collar that translates her thoughts so that we can understand her, and makes her sound a bit like a cheerful version of GLaDOS form Portal 2 (if you don’t get this reference, don’t worry; that probably means you have a life). Gibson is a paranoid kitty that is the newest addition to the family who Sylvester first hates (naturally) and doesn’t initially have the ability to speak. In fact, for a long time all he could say was “help” and “Todd”. I know, weird. You just have to watch the show because a lot of stuff I can tell you doesn’t do the show justice!

“Fuck off!” Sylvester isn’t pleased that Steve forgot to buy cat food yet again…

Steve Cash is a visionary. He is also a musician and has a few covers and original songs out there, which can be quite funny as well. As you can probably tell from the detailed description above, I am a huge fan of this guy. He started out back in 2007, but he hasn’t been uploading as much. No matter, he has a treasure trove of magical videos you can check out and enjoy. Trust me, it will be the best and worst thing that’s ever happened to you. You won’t get much work done until you’ve seen every episode of Talking Kitty Cat.

Sylvester will have you in tears! Must watch from episode 1!

As always, feel free to leave your comments below!

YouTuber of the Week: Lilly Singh aka Superwoman

Happy Hump Day!

I’ve chosen one of my favourite YouTubers of ALL TIME to recommend y’all to check out and maybe subscribe to. Lily Singh a.k.a. Superwoman is this week’s YouTuber of the Week!

Superwoman is the epitome of awesome sauce.

I only discovered her early this year, but I managed to watch every video she uploaded by the end of that week. She just has a positive outlook on life and manages to put a smile on my face.Pretty quickly her bubbly personality got through to some of my friends as I told them about her videos, and they became just as addicted as I was. It’s easy to become addicted because it takes quite a while to get through over 200 videos in one night (when you are supposed to be writing that essay…you know the one!). So what you do is, you keep some for later and you and just binge watch until you can’t watch no more.

She makes videos that open your eyes to what it’s like living in Toronto with Punjabi parents, and she does this well because some of her most popular videos are based on these anecdotes, such as “Things Parents Lie About” and “How My Parents React To Someone I’m Dating“.

This is Superwoman playing the part of her mother. She does this for her father and brother as well. The result is magnificent.

Superwoman takes vlogging about everyday events to a whole new level. She has a way of tackling issues everybody can relate to in an environment that is not judgemental, non-prejudiced and completely intelligent. I, for one, always appreciate it when individuals in entertainment are civil and avoid excess amounts of ignorance when presenting their ideas and thoughts. It’s refreshing. Superwoman has a knack for making her fans and even first-time viewers feel good about themselves. Her video “Your Wake Up Call” awakens the dreamer in you and encourages you to get out there and do what the stars aligned and intended you to do.
Indeed, even her videos that not everyone can relate to are still very enjoyable. Dudes out there, go check out her video “Girls On Their Periods“. I guarantee you won’t regret it, you might even learn a few things which could help you in the future (hint: so that when your girl turns into a fire-breathing dragon you know what to do).

AND it gets better! She has a second channel called SuperwomanVlogs filled with all kinds of awesome sauce (a classic Superwoman phrase, ’cause “awesome” just wasn’t enough) including extra bloopers, travel vlogs, and just general quirkiness that quenches your need to see more of Superwoman.

So check Lily, a.k.a. Superwoman, out peeps. It’s not even a recommendation; it’s an order.
See you same time next week!

YouTuber Of The Week: David So

Alright, alright, alriiight.

So, it’s Monday. Allow me to announce the very first YouTuber of the week! Please note that the YouTubers that I post per week under this title are my personal favourites, and that although my taste in comedy is pretty good, you are free to disagree.

Let’s cut to the chase.

davidso

This week it’s David So! Let me give you a bit of background so you understand where I’m coming from. David So is a Korean American vlogger, stand up comedian and even a singer. He has been doing stand up comedy in his hometown of Sacramento, CA since 2008 and created his YouTube channel called “DavidSoComedy” in 2011. Now, believe me when I tell you that his videos are über hilarious and that they will make your day 1,000 times better, no matter your mood.

If you are more interested in his musical side (he is unbelievably talented), he has a separate channel on YouTube called “DavidSoMusic” which is full of his awesome covers as well as some original tracks.

David-So-Paul-Kim-That-XX-Cover

I have chosen him as the YouTuber of the week because he has a funny take on any issue thrown at him and is quite intelligent. He tackles social issues like obesity, fitness, relationships and much more. If you are having a not-so-great day, pop on over to his channel and laugh away the stress.
