The YouTube Vortex

I accidentally stayed up until 2am last night. And I say accidentally because it was, I fell into a YouTube vortex. You guys know the ones. You bring up YouTube, watch a funny or exciting clip, then the sidebar brings up another one. You think ooh that looks interesting... BAM 3 hours later and you have watched around 30 clips. That happened to me last night.

It started off with watching auditions from the X Factors, Got Talents and Idols... then progressed to a Real Life Mentalist (which totally blew my mind) then I ended up watching the new episodes of my latest obsession...

This web series is, obviously, based on the Lizzie Bennet from Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice, which I love. And now I can't get enough of this modern adaptation. Its witty and charming, and the actors are all fantastic. It can get a little cheesy, but sometimes life needs a little cheese. If you are a fan of the novel or films you should definitely have a look. It does stray from the storyline a little, but overall its a great modern twist on the classic tale. And I definitely enjoy it (not too mention George Wickham is seriously hot! be sure to stick around until episode 40-something! Its worth it!) The thing that I love is these guys are so immersed into being the characters. They have twitter handles for each of them, a blog where they write as the heroines (Lizzie, Jane, and Lydia) its pretty much amazeballs.

Here is the first episode for you to enjoy!

I have had nights like those where I just zone out and enjoy a good book or take in a 2 hour movie. but I must admit those nights are me selfishly indulging in some quality time for myself and forgetting the consequences that tomorrow brings. Still it is worth it.
I am following you from the Monday Hop and hope you follow back.

I love YouTube. I usually look at it at work { because who works at work right? }. Me & my coworkers look at hours of cute animals & music videos.
