Good Youtube! Oreos! Etc!

I'm going to let you in on a secret. I'm warning you, though, that you may need to sit down. Or stop reading if you're under eighteen (not really). Things are about to get super racy. Are you ready? All I'm wearing is a towel.

...Are you still there? Does anyone need a defibrillator? I'm sorry! I just showered after running four miles, I'm trying not to keep a friend I have plans with waiting, and I thought being partially naked would speed up the blogging process. If you're scandalized, I apologize. Think of something wholesome! Here, have a picture of a duck. Ducks are cute and family-friendly! I met that particular one at Playlist Live, when he waddled right up to my friends at the side of the pool. Crap. Now you're picturing a bathing suit-clad Luke Conard and all hope is lost.

Anyway, since I (once again) don't have a world of time, I thought I'd keep with yesterday's list-making theme and link you guys to my current favorite youtube channels. I've made lists of this sort in the past, but youtube changes faster than a character's personality on Glee, so it's always fun to update the catalogue. Below are my top five ATM, and a favorite video from each.

5. Friendswobenefits. With 2,000 subscribers, he's certainly not unpopular, but I still can't comprehend how Chas hasn't yet been properly recognized for kicking so much ass. He's witty, he's charming, he doesn't beat you over the head with self-promotion or gimmicks, and ladies, he's cute. Just as a random sample, watch this. In love yet? Thought so.

4. SonofaStitch. It's perhaps lame for me to say this since he's one of my best friends... but PJ is hysterical and he spits out some freaking top-notch youtube videos. You know the way normal people might occasionally say something clever and you think, "Oh, I should write that down or tweet it or something!" That's what comes out of PJ's mouth every single time it opens. To further demonstrate my lack of bias, I'll link you to this one because I'm mentioned in it. But also because it's worth it.

3. Babyporridge. If you're like me and long for the days when youtube was ruled by real-life creativity and not just a caste system of douchebaggery, watch five minutes of Nikki and you'll feel so 2007, you won't even remember who Lady Gaga is. Nikki's unique, she's quirky, and her videos somehow feel like you're watching a combination between a drug trip and a child prodigy's self-produced living room talent show. Here's an example.

2. Tyleroakley. It's extremely unlikely that I'm the first person to introduce you to this little walking ball of stardom, but in the event you've been left in the dark, do yourself a favor and acquaint yourself with Tyler. He's always funny, always sassy, and does a ton of good work for the gay community. Here's one that gets me every time.

1. Communitychannel. Again, I guarantee you've seen her before, but frankly, I don't think it's possible to see too much of her. Natalie does everything I wish I could do. She makes the absolute most of the medium, she makes "your mom" jokes, and she makes my abs more defined from laughing. This is my personal favorite, even though that's like saying I have a favorite kind of... something... that's always good. I don't know, guys, shut up. Go watch Nat.

So hopefully those will entertain you! My friend is now on the end of my bed, giving me a play-by-play recap of some made-for-TV Hilary Duff movie, so I've gotta go. Very important business. Quickly: PB&J for breakfast, smoothie and pretzels with hummus for lunch, um, DEFINITELY NOT THIS for dinner. Carina maintains, "Oreos aren't BAD for you. They're vegan." She then goes on to say, "I'm getting a doughnut. I'm so pumped." You can see why she's my friend and why I have to go.

I hope you all have a lovely day and I'll see you guys tomorrow!

Ahh, yes! Natalie Tran <3 Absolutely agree, she's my favorite too! :D Is that some sort of Oreo cereal concoction? You just won 10 million awesome points. Have fun with those plans, whatever they may be. Keep on keeping on with your badass dairy-free diet! Can't wait until tomorrows post :)

Bridget said...

Woah... this is a personal record. First comment! :O

Kristi said...

Chas is my favorite. I remember you featured him on 5AG, when you did a week where you introduced up and coming YouTubers, and I've been subscribed since then! (also, he is quite attractive. but that is beside the point.)

madhu said...

ive liked her for five years.......or more.......i cant even remember
i love her
too much

and you of course.

LiveAlive said...

Ducks are the world's most evil and terrifying creatures. Why would you subject us to that?

JuliAnn said...

You are not the only one who eats oreos that way. Ever since I found out milk was not my friend and I could actually have oreos... soy milk and oreos IS AMAZING!!! I actually tried a sip of milk not that long ago, now this is coming from someone who drank milk all the time (I also felt HORRIBLE all the time... I wonder why) and when I took that sip of milk it was SO NASTY. Never again.

Squirrelfish said...

Since it's my life-dream to one day be recommended by you in some capacity (for youtube or tumblr or my never-to-be-published-novel) I guess that makes these people my heroes. . .
Also, according to science, blogging in a towel makes the blogging better.

(See what I did there? Referencing yesterdays post? No? Okay nvm. . .)

Ida Ruda said...

I thought the title said Goodbye Youtube. Traumatized.

Victoria said...

I watch all the people you mentioned!Anyway, I don't know what you mean, I consider Oreos a vegetable.
@Maya Just let it shine!

Sylvain said...

After you tell us that all you are wearing is a towel you give us the picture of a duck to look at...
Damn you really know what your readers want to see Hayley! :)

Im sorry but until I get a visual proof I cant believe that you are writting your blog in towel. ;)

And yes Oreos are good for you, I dont see why they would be bad.
Oreos ... Come on! GOOD of course.

Dina said...

Hey Hayley!

So this is the first time I comment on your blog, I think >_> But I follow you regularly, from Egypt and shiz. I find you hilarious and your blogging never ceases to amuse me.

So, um, I wanted you to know this.

And also, you got me going on and I kind of love you for it because that site has helped me loads. So thank you. Rarely is one able to be a fan of someone useful.

Ooooh. On the subject of Oreos, here's something funny: We have a knock-off thing called Borio, right, that's exactly like Oreos but probably suspiciously cheaper with suspicious ingredients. I did not realize the similarity between the names until last month. And then I was like OHHHH.

But Borios are still pretty nice.

Anyway, you're fabulous, keep going! And I think you're quite brave for trying the vegan thing. I would die.

I absolutely LOVE Chas!

Victoria said...

Characters on glee: true dat. It's the same with a lot of shows, 90210 does it so well- you could put the characters with themselves from the previous series and there would probably be a murder. But a lot of the time laughing at TV shows rather than with them is doubly fun. Also, Natalie Tran is the God of youtube, not exactly attracted to girls, but I'd marry her just so I could spend my life with nothing but her to entertain me.

Lauren said...

I see what you did there with the fetus.. very clever lol. Or you're just good at coincidences. Either way those videos kept me entertained for a while.
Btw, I want those oreos.

Kaitlyn w/ a K said...

Do you think you'll ever try to eat another half burrito to even out your total, or are you unbothered by the .5?

Christina said...

I just gained a few new subscriptions, thanks Hayley! I'm excited to check out some new videos. On that note, must go- lots of youtubing to do.

Spazophie said...

Friendswobenefits = greatest. Ever. I am so glad that failed as a collab channel because imagine how lame it would be if only 50% of the videos on that channel were Chas doing his hilarious thing.

Nicci Weasley said...

Thanks Hayley :)
A few new awesome subscriptons for me. Yay :)

toastburntbread said...

My friend and I always ask each other " So who's your favourite youtuber right now?" and it's amazing how frequently they change. There are some constants (a little arse kissing, but yes, YOU. ), but most ch-ange, ch-ange- change.

Older grown ups are in higher risk for establishing some kinds of malignancy. Roughly 75% of cancers are identified in people old 55 and older. Because the danger increases, so does the significance of staying healthful and fit. Normal medical professional visits, normal weight, a healthy diet plan, personal-examinations and cancer testing assessments can all assist in lowering the chance. [url=]Div5uen4d[/url]
