    I am an old woman yelling at cloud, and I think Youtubers are generally terrible - it takes quite a bit of digging to find someone who isn't a pathological narcissist, a racist, clickbait trash, or makes annoying faces on the still. With book youtubers ("booktubers"), most of them read YA pretty exclusively - always the same books, once you've seen a video you've literally seen them all - and act unnaturally chipper, which really annoys me.

    HOWEVER there are some booktubers who are alright, who are smart and don't act like maniacs on camera, and who actually read interesting books. If you prefer to watch videos rather than read articles recommending books, then you can get good recs from these people. They aren't the flashiest, or the ones with the most subscriptions, sometimes they don't even have very good production values, BUT the content is good. And when it comes to books, that is all that really matters.

    So here are 5 booktubers who aren't as terrible as the others.


    1. Jen Campbell

    Jen owns a bookshop in the UK and is also the author of the hilarious Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops and More Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops, and the non-fiction The Bookshop Book, which "examines the history of books, talks to authors about their favourite places, and looks at over three hundred weirdly wonderful bookshops across six continents".

    Her channel is pretty no-frills and she reads mostly adult books, including from independent presses. You can get good recs from her on her themed videos (i.e. Magical Realism recs; Apocalyptic Fiction; LGBTQ book recs, etc) or on her monthly wrap-ups, where she talks about the latest books she's read.






    2. MercysBookishMusings

    Mercy reads a lot of adult and fantasy books (her video guide to Robin Hobb is very helpful). She is English, so that explains why on some of her videos she looks like the lost Little Mix member. She has some themed videos (underhyped books; favourite graphic novels; etc), and also does regular book hauls and monthly wrap-ups.






    3. booksandquills

    Sanne is Dutch (but vlogs in English). She reads pretty widely, including adult fiction, graphic novels, and fantasy. She does book hauls, reading wrap-ups, recs, and also videos about other subjects. I personally enjoyed her videos about the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction shortlist (which was sponsored by Baileys but still).






    4. rincey reads

    Rincey is American. She's a Bookriot writer and reads a LOT - and way more diversely than the average booktuber. As for genres, Rincey reads pretty much every genre there is: a lot of adult books, non-fiction, fantasy, thriller, YA, etc. She does book reviews, book hauls, reading wrap-ups and discussions.






    5. wordsofareader

    Leslie is an Australian booktuber. Her production values aren't the best but personally I will take homemade before overdone. She reads a lot of classics, children's books, popular fiction and more. She also does themed recs (novella recs, top 5 faves, books worth the hype), reviews, wrap-ups and book hauls.

    LA Dark Pop band MUNA has released their debut album, "About U," along with a moving music video for their single, "I Know A Place."

    Their sparkling synth-pop soundtracks a story of inclusivity and warmth in the face of an industrial landscape and police in riot gear. Watch the video and stream their debut album in full at Stereogum.

    In the shitstorm that was 2016, this band actually helped me cope with some pretty traumatic stuff. Any other entirely un-problematic faves that you recommend, ONTD?

    Gonna try sum up this interview as best as I can. *rolls up sleeves*

    - Dave says that we are living in a time of real change. His daughter cried and sobbed at the results of the last US election.

    - Martin and Dave are both very alarmed at the state of the world especially since both of them live in America.

    - This album is more political than their last few. In one of the new songs called "Backwards", Dave sings of bigots "turning back our history" along with their latest single "Where's the Revolution".

    - Dave sobbed and cried when Bowie died and his wife and daughter both had to hug him. Depeche Mode then recorded a special concert at New York City's High Line public park, where they paid tribute to Bowie by singing Heroes. They have yet to release this concert to the public which was recorded without an audience.

    Love it! Fingers crossed that a surprise Delle Seyah ends up popping up as well. Give seasons one and two a watch if you haven't. They're a quick binge and a great watch!

  • 02/06/17--12:51: Kanye turns on Trump


  • It looks like the recent alliance between the two most egocentric celebrities in America might be over. Kanye deleted all of the tweets he made in December defending his meeting with Trump.

    This is happening after Kanye was reportedly not asked to perform at the inauguration despite likely being the most A-list performer available to them because they wanted the inauguration to be "Traditionally American".

    CNN also noted that one of the artists recently signed to Kanye's label just released a song calling for Trump's impeachment and it was produced by Kanye.
