Kick Off This Semester By Watching These Top-Tier YouTube Commentators

Take a quick break from your studies to indulge in the most fruitful content of the YouTube community.

Kick Off This Semester By Watching These Top-Tier YouTube Commentators

I love staying up way too late to watch way too many YouTube videos just as much as the next college student, so much so that I've developed a list of my favorite commentators on the platform. So in no particular order, below are my top four content creators in the commentary community.

Beware: Don't laugh too loud while watching these videos, or you'll wake up your roommate!

1. Leon Lush

Give this man a "The Most Sophisticated Commentary Content Creator of 2019" plaque, please! Equipped with an edgy sense of humor and borderline raunchy skits, Leon is the pinnacle of satirical commentary on YouTube. But within his extremity, his ability to address topics in a tasteful manner by viewing each from multiple perspectives garners him immense respect from his fanbase.

2. Danny Gonzalez

As a former Viner-turned-YouTuber, Danny presents all the classic traits of a successful multiverse man: a meme. His most recent dip into this internet culture? A video in which he tests the clickability of the trend of "shock factor" social media ads gaming apps have been producing. These outrageous productions depict, say, an ugly princess magically becoming beautiful, yet when the viewer clicks on the ad, it's really just a medieval battle game. So, Danny puts his own spin to the concept by creating his own self-promotion of his YouTube channel—complete with visuals just as irrelevant and bizarre as those of gaming companies—and monetizing them into actual YouTube video ads. Just watch and see for yourself!

3. Jarvis Johnson

Jarvis is a tech mastermind AND a hilarious commentator...what more could you ask for in a content creator? He combines these two talents to produce meaningful points in his arguments. For instance, he coded a random title generator website to emphasize how fake, sensational or ridiculous they are when they pertained to the trend of animated and allegedly true story videos written by kids. But beyond just intersecting the realms of humor and technology, Jarvis also explores the nuances of High School Musical I. There. Nothing more needs to be noted about that musical and cinematic masterpiece.

4. Drew Gooden

Following the Vine era, what more could the iconic "Road work ahead? Yeah, I sure hope it does!" catchphraser do with his social media fame than to develop a successful YouTube channel? Starting with his classic video intro to who seems to be someone named "Guy" (but it's really a form of address instead of the plural "guys"), Drew's subtle, nonsensical humor makes his material all the more giggle-worthy...peep to the "Road Work Ahead" sign that's always in the background of his videos.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.
