Is anyone else enamored, fascinated, and/or disgusted by family vloggers? There are the notable ones like Bratayley and Shaytards -- sort of the "first" ones to do this -- but it seems like more and more have been cropping up over the past few years. It looks like it has a lot to do with the influx of YouTube sponsorships being handed down, as a lot of these family channels have whole videos that are essentially commercials. I think this topic would have a place on FreeJinger not only for the notoriety of this in general, but also that some of these families are large, are putting their kids in the spotlight, and/or have questionable beliefs. As one might expect, there are a lot of ethical quandaries about privacy and publicly sharing footage of children who are too young to consent, as opposed to this just being part of where social media is headed. From my own personal viewing habits, there are ones that I actually quite like (Life with Beans, This Gathered Nest), ones I only really watch to snark at (The Murrays, The Stauffer Life/Myka Stauffer), and ones that give me an icky feeling (The Epik Life, formerly Epik Brandon Family). Again, those are just ones that I regularly view or keep up with, and I'm interested to see what everyone else thinks about this. (I'm actually really surprised this wasn't already a topic; mods, feel free to move this if there's something I didn't see.)
Whilst reading the Mills family thread, I realized how rude it is that Tom live-streams his trips to Walmart with no regard for the privacy of other shoppers and employees. The cashier may not want to be broadcasted to 70k viewers—yet Tom just films away without asking permission. Is that legal? I thought, at least in some states, you have to get a person’s permission to film them. That made me so mad. Then, I got to thinking about the kids in these YouTubing families. Aren’t there laws regulating children filming professionally? Like, lots of laws, right? Stuff like, limited number of hours filmed per day depending on how old they are and money earned must be saved for them until they get to a certain age? And...they are children. They can’t legally give consent for anything, right? So when YouTuber parents say “we asked our kids if it’s ok to film our lives and put it on YouTube:” that’s not really consent. They are kids. I don’t think that works, legally (or ethically). When they grow up, that may regret that their childhood was aired publicly. Some of these families film nonstop and some are clearly not saving money earned for their kids. How does all of this fly, legally?
Does anyone else watch religious related Youtube videos a lot? If so, feel free to some of your favourite content creators. I like The Bible Reloaded, especially when they review Chick tracts and kids Christian shows. I've never been involved with Scientology or Jehovas Witnesses, but I also like the Angry Gay Pope and Apostate Chick.
Is anyone else into ASMR? I don't like the talking videos, but I find the soap crunching ones to be nice. However, my favourite ASMR to watch are the food ones, which is super weird because if I hear something chewing IRL, it makes me so irritated. I'm coming to realize that I don't care so much for their eating noise, but I like to see what they're eating. So I'm starting to gravitate more towards mukbangs. I like the more exotic channels because they eat so differently than I do. I love the cooking process, so I like when they include that in the beginning of the video. Favourite Youtubers to watch: - SAS Asmr - Linh - Dorothy - NE Let's Eat - LiBi TV
So - my path to this particular subject is courtesy Out Daughtered and Sweet Home Sextuplets. The Busby's have both Instagram and Youtube channels. The other family has Instagram. And Google then takes my looking at these and starts suggesting youtube videos for five.two.love. FIve.Two.Love - five is for quintuplets. two if for the two older boys. I like this family but dad has decided to make a living from youtube vlogging (at least until Youtube puts and end to this - which from all families seems to be an ongoing issue as far as content to keep them where they are and not moved to a children's category). I will admit that when compared to say Kate Gosselin this family is calm and amusing. They led me to (thanks to both cross-overs and youtube suggestions) the following. Not Enough Nelsons. Mormon family of (now) 16. Roughly half the kids are adopted. They are, for me, loud. (As in if they spent money on mic equipment or something they might be able to get rid of the shout/yelly end of things on every video). all the girls names end in 'ee' (although daughter Janie doesn't put hers out there that way and Kass has apparently lobbed the EE off hers). Gardner Quad Squad. As the name implies they have quadruplets - but their quads are two sets of identical twins. Another family that seems to either be full time vloggers and/or MLM schilling. Kids are on the loud side but they've also just turned 5. Meet the Millers - family with 5 kids. The youngest Jensen has medical issues, congenital defect involving his esophagus, almost died at birth. And hey, dad seems to have a regular job during the day so this is more Mom's gig. April & Davey - I'm going to have to go find the link to the videos that aren't on their main channel to post in here. April is ex FLDS. (but the story is a tad humorous because her family was less than exemplary and Mom seemed to be working the FLDS system for support post divorce). Very LDS - he does Temple shifts (I'm assuming volunteering). They've had a series of exchange students living with them. She just had baby #6 (and he got a vasectomy shortly after that baby was born). She's a hair stylist who does work at home. They have had a channel (or have a channel) for kids that involved superhero videos. I haven't' checked that one out.
Hey all! I've been working hard on making Youtube videos lately. I talk about different subjects and people that relate to fundamentalism while doing my makeup (GRWM = Get ready with me). Like the Pearls, Bill Gothard, the Duggars, etc. My goal is to be educational plus funny. I inject a lot of memes and jokes in the videos and I like to manipulate clips I find of my subjects online. I am shooting all of these on my iphone and I'm learning to use the editing software, so sometimes the videos can be rough at times. I wanted to share my videos with FJ because this was the forum that really got me invested in fundies. I also feel like this community might get some of the more obscure references to different people in the videos. This has become a labor of love for me. I am going to link to my 3 best videos (in my opinion, at least.) Feel free to check them out and let me know what you think. Vision Forum The Pearls The Duggars Part 1
I posted a weird video in a Duggar thread and someone asked where I found it, well I get bored and search for really strange religious YouTube videos. I thought I would share some. Feel free to share others! This one is something else. A public access show about the Bible and aliens. It has an alien, a talking cat, ventriloquist dummy, and a guy who can't read the cue cards. Celebrating Easter by doing aerobics out in a park! The breakfast song. This preacher is has some major issues with his congregation. Christian break dancing. We can't have a thread like this without Jack Schaap and his rod.
I always love seeing FJists' music choices, so please post what you are listening to. I am on a folk thing at the moment strangely. It's like comfort music for me. (Hope these work) PqbI6UyVimQ That one's in Scots so Americans might struggle a bit with it. Quick translations: tak' tent o = take note of or pay attention to swart supper't = they fed him enough food heid bummer = like "high heid yin", it's a contemptuous way of talking about a boss wheeched = it's like grabbing or snatching something. "He wheeched it awa'." nae mair = what it is in English, "no more" ken't = knew. "Ken" is "know" in Scots. So for example "Ah didnae ken" means "I didn't know" gey close tae scunnert = the best way I can describe this is "He was really near to being in bad trouble" but Hulett means it as "He nearly died". If you're scunnert, you're fucked, basically. ower blaistart = they were very excited and angry (there is not a clear translation for this, I don't think). Ilk wey = every way (the lyric says "every way the government turned they were in trouble", as best as I can translate) Hopefully other Scots can explain better than me Here is a nice song in English after that. This is very popular on the Left, strangely. a0UA2UjJYbU And a hymn, to fit in with the tone of the board. (A very nice one) SmDwjDiDXb8 A personal favourite (I apologise in advance for this. I really am sorry. It just gets stuck in my head) nHY14OVk7r0 Now I would like to hear your YouTube favourites
