Favorite YouTube videos of the month!

YASSS! New monthly category!

 

I may have mentioned this in earlier posts that I frequent YouTube a lot, not for music videos, but for interesting, fun, and learning content. I’ve subscribed to some awesome channels and thought I’d share a few of the videos I’ve enjoyed for the month.

Twins teach their 21-year-old best friend to ride a bike

If it’s one channel that I’ve come to love over on YT, it’s Lucas and Marcus. The Dobre twins always try to make family-friendly oriented content even when pulling softcore pranks on their brothers and parents. 

Anyways, earlier this month, the twins taught their cameraman and best friend, Steve, how to ride a bike. It was a really nice experience for Steve who mastered the art of bike riding by the end of the video.

Surprise, Marcus!

The twins turned 19 on Sunday and Lucas attempted to surprise his twin with a birthday party at their parents’ gym. Was it the best birthday party ever? I don’t know, but Marcus was sure appreciative of the gesture.

Reading books is amazing

One of my favorite BookTubers, Jesse lists 30 things that he loves about reading books. I might have identified with many, if not all of them.

Epic intro!

James Patterson pulls no punches when it comes to promoting/marketing his books and this 31-second clip of him entering a stadium to plug the book is amazing!

Whodunit?

This video is from September last, but I only discovered their channel this month (YouTube recommended it) and I like it! In this clip, there are 7 mysteries that only 5% can solve. Do you have what it takes? Then watch the clip and play along.

And that’s a wrap! 😃

50 Foods #33: Vindaloo

Origin: Goa
Date: 16th century
Type: Hot curry

Goa, India has a very rich Portuguese history, something I learned while watching the Bollywood film, Josh.

JOSH

After watching this movie, I ended up researching Goa and I delved deep into their colorful past including the Portuguese explorer Vasco de Gama who landed in Calicut (South of Goa) in 1498 (I think this was mentioned in the film) and their food especially vindaloo, a very spicy dish that asks for a lot of chilies!

Indian food is enjoyed globally. It won’t hurt to stop by your local Indian restaurant and try their vindaloo.

Would I eat/drink it?: I LOVE INDIAN FOOD!! The spicier, the better. 😋

Day 29: A book everyone hated but you liked

If people hate the book that I like, it never fazes me for everyone cannot like the same book. One book that comes to mind right now is The Luxe by Anna Godbersen.

The book garnered a lot of mixed reviews and many readers disliked it, but I still picked it up because of the gorgeous cover. If I read it now, I may have a different view, but I liked this book back then.
