While we’re all staying at home, a lot of us are watching things online. With the plethora of videos available, and more being created every day, it’s an enjoyable way to pass the time and bring a little fun into our lives. Some of these may be brand new, some may be older, but here are a few of the videos I enjoyed this week.
Rick Astley might be most well-known in the internet for the Rick Roll, but he’s also a talented musician. Here he covers the Foo Fighters’ song “Everlong” because as he said, “Sometimes you just have to find a song that’s gonna lift your spirits and put you in another place.”
Being stuck at home has given a lot of folks the time to pursue different passions that they might not have had time for before, with baking certainly being one. Several cast members of The Witcher decided to have their own baking competition, resulting in this video from Thue Ersted Rasmussen. The Danish actor, who will appear in Season 2 of the Netflix series, takes us through making a simple loaf of bread, making sure to include lots of shots of his “ridiculously photogenic dog” for good measure!
Zoos and aquariums have always shared videos of their adorable animals, with my local aquarium being no exception. With lower attendance numbers, they have more opportunities to share the animals exploring their facility, including these penguin chicks!
Halloween season is upon us, with many wondering how the pandemic will effect the candy and costume fueled holiday. If your area will still have trick-or-treating, here’s a fun and easy way to distribute candy while still keeping a safe distance – a candy slide! It seems easy enough to make, with no glue or heavy machinery necessary. The makers responsible for this idea provide all the necessary measurements in the video’s description, as well as giving you tips on what *not* to do when they do mess up. They also give a couple ideas for decorating your candy slide, but I have to say that I like the skeleton/mummy look that they go for with theirs!
Most avid cosplayers and con-goers have heard of Dragon Con, the massive convention that takes place in Atlanta, GA every Labor Day weekend. Well, *almost* every Labor Day weekend. For obvious reasons, the convention did not take place as usual this year. In an effort to keep the spirit of the convention alive, panels and events for the convention pivoted to the online sphere. No Dragon Con would be complete without the annual parade, and that too was moved online for this year. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this year’s (virtual) Dragon Con Parade!
