- PITTER PATTER. LET’S GET AT ‘ER.
You have likely seen the ads on Hulu of a country boy reciting a poem in a thick accent, followed by a mish-mash of exciting, albeit unrelated, scenes of people fighting. The music playing is reminiscent of the Jaskass theme song, but next thing you know you are back watching another episode of SVU.
My Advice: Turn off SVU. The dad did it. And press play on season one episode one of Letterkenny.
This show is unbelievably funny. A blend of Always Sunny and Trailer Park Boys with a dash of Edgar Wright and Kevin Smith by way of Degrassi. This wondrous Canadian comedy follows the residents of Letterkenny and their problems. The writers and actors have created an intoxicating vibrant world. I never wanted to go to the world in Avatar, but I would love to grab a Puppers with the boys in Letterkenny.
Idiosyncratic, charming and endless quotable. Allegedly.
I really never watched YouTube until I was able to stream videos using the PS3. I would watch videos linked on social media, but never really took a deep dive into the site. There are YouTubers that have regular views way higher than primetime mainstream programs.
So I am watching videos about Bohemian Grove and the Denver Airport and I keep getting suggestions to watch Conspiracy videos by Shane Dawson. The thumbnails were bright yellow and seemed to focus on pop-culture theories. After watching a few videos, I’m like who is this Shane fellow. Oh, he’s only the most popular YouTuber on the platform.
His most recent opus made headlines as he looked into the pizza of a popular kids pizza chain.
Shudder recently released a killer documentary about black voices in horror. Genre superstars, directors, writers and scholars discuss everything from Night of the Living Dead to Get Out. A must watch for any gore hound.
4. OH DRUMMER BOY
Every week hosts Miel and Demi, with a guest review and breakdown a popular song that needs a punch up. From Love Shack to Little Drummer Boy PUTJ bring an infectious sense of humor to music criticism. What takes this pod from 10 to 11 on the Spinal Tap scale is every pod ends with a reinterpretation of the song being discussed. A punched up jam if you will.
5. POPPY STAR
Poppy is an art project. Poppy is a singer. Poppy might be the devil. Poppy may even be a computer virus. Is Poppy a girl? Check out this YouTuber’s newest album. http://impoppy.com
6. WHAM BAMBA
If you want a low sugar peanut snack, look no further. BAMBA. YUM.
