Mention Monday Mashup

Usually when I figure out what to post for Mention Monday, it just sorta comes to me. This time, I couldn't really pin point what I wanted to mention. So, I decided to do something I don't normally do...

I'm going to mention some non-writerly people. They're writers in their own way, but not authors exactly. Also, I know of them because of YouTube, so while they do write, they also vlog. And the vlogging is a main thing. I know a lot of people who follow my blog are writers, so forgive me if y'all don't want to hear about YouTubers. These are some people who either make me laugh, sing lovely, produce awesomely, and all (or close to) the above.

First there's Shane Dawson. I honestly couldn't tell you exactly what it is that makes me want to watch every video his posts, but I do, every time. He actually recently made an announcement that he sold a TV show idea to NBC, so that's pretty awesome. He's got a couple YT channels, so click his name and check him out.(His other YT channel is here)

Now I'm going to group a few people together here because they're all wonderful singers. I love pulling up their YT channels and listening to their covers of songs and then I go buy their songs on Amazon. They all sing lovely and it's inspirational for me...Andrew Garcia, Chester See, Andy Lange, and Josh Golden.

Okay, now this guy I'm about to mention may not be to everyone's taste. If it's not something you like, sorry I suggested you check him out, but still do because you may like him as much as I do. The name is Bart Baker. He does parodies and they make me laugh every time. They're actually pretty catchy too. I love wandering over to his YT channel each Sunday to see what new thing he's got for me.

I'm throwing NigaHiga in here. He's got over 10 million subscribers, so there's a chance some of you all already know of him and watch his videos, but just in case I wanted to mention him. He posts some pretty entertaining videos.

Last, but not least, there's Goopery(AKA Luke Twomey). I found him once when I was looking for Irish accents. And I love his accent, it's very inspirational for me since I've got a lot of Irish characters in my stories. But that aside, he's funny and he says what he says and doesn't give a crap. I like that. He doesn't post regularly, but he does post when he can and you should check him out.

That's it for this week's mentions. A little different, but hopefully y'all will find some entertainment in these people. Maybe you already know of some of them.

Either way, happy Monday! I hope you all had an awesome weekend and it continues into this week. If your weekend wasn't so awesome, I hope you have a week that makes up for the lack of awesome. :)
