ASMR Was Mentioned In The 200th Episode Of The Wired UK Podcast!

Hey guys! ASMR got a mention in Wired UK Podcast's 200th episode!!! http://www.wired.co.uk/podcast/episode-200 If you start at 15:44 you will hear Nate (the host) speaking highly of ASMR and playing a clip from my Cat Lady Role Play! I think it's awesome when people are open minded (and in this case very positive) about ASMR, so if you want something cool to listen to---or if you just want to stop by the podcast page and say hiiii from the ASMR community (we can be the friendliest welcome wagon on the internet) and congratulate Nate and his team on their 200th episode, please feel free to do so .

My 200th ASMR video is coming. Whoa.

Hey guys, I wanted to let you know a new vid is coming. It was brought to my attention that it's going to be my 200th vid, and I have been feeling a lot of pressure to complete the Bob Ross one, so I want it to be the 200th video. It's A LOT more work intensive than I thought it would be. I am using two mics and two cameras, among layered moments, so please bear with me. I could have done a sound slice to hold you guys over, but I want to get this done. Thanks for understanding, thanks for sticking with me through 200 videos (whoa my gosh!!!!), and I am sorry for the delay.

Making It Rain Tingles Part 2! Looking for new ASMR content creators? Here are some more I recommend!





Last week I started a little blog series that I am going to try my best to keep up with.  In it, I share other content creators' vids that work for me (about 10 at a time) to possibly help you find new sources for ASMR.  Here is another batch for your viewing pleasure!  I hope you find some new content creators that work for you!



Ardra Neala's BEAUTIFUL "Binaural Psionic Initiation Role Play"




AnkieAsmr Tingling's "Getting Your Eyebrows and Eyelashes Colored Role Play"



ASMR Chess' "The Fundamental Chess Tactics For Beginners"



ASMR Angel's Cranial Nerve Examination Role Play



asmrbebexo's "Super Up-Close Whisper: Words Beginning With Q"



Asmr Vids' "Sculpting Toy 3"



amalzd's "Dead Sea Nails Saleswoman Role Play"



asmrdidibandy's "Doctor Role Play"



ASMRanthony's "Hands In Your Hair"



asmrAlice's "Sci-fi Research Role Play"



Bonus!  Arda Neala's "Krampus Role Play"


I hope you enjoy this week's picks!  More to come!  Remember, if you don't see someone you love up here, it doesn't mean I don't love them too---I just can't put hundreds of vids in one blog post, or people will feel overwhelmed and be less likely to check out some new faces.  You are always welcome to post your faves and anyone you think I should check out in the comments to share with me and each other.

Cutebunny992 is back! An Original Gangster of ASMR Returns!

The return of the bunny!  



ASMR has grown a lot in the last 5 years.  There are hundreds of thousands (maybe even millions at this point) of people who watch ASMR videos now.  Some of you might have been around a handful of years ago, and might remember Cutebunny.  Some of you might have no idea what I am talking about.  



Cutebunny is an OG of ASMR.  She was one of the first channels I ever subscribed to (waaaaaaaay before I became a content creator).  Cutebunny made a role play of something I had never heard of before---something called a "cranial nerve examination."  It triggered my face off.  Hundreds of times.  Even now, years later, it still triggers me.


Cutebunny's name is Marianne, and she is responsible for the popularization of Cranial Nerve Examination Role Plays.  Her CNE RP triggered hundreds of thousands of people without a binaural microphone, without an HD camera, without any special effects, back when ASMR videos on Youtube weren't common at all, and the genre was in its infancy.  It was just her voice and her movements, and it worked wonders.  



Some terrible things happened to her channel, and Cutebunny disappeared.  Had she stayed, I have no doubts that she would have hundreds of thousands of subscribers.  Some people uploaded her videos to Youtube, and even then, they garnered over a million views in total.  One could argue that her introduction and popularization of the cranial nerve exam role play helped contribute to the growth of ASMR as a whole.  CNE's are among the most common, effective, and popular types of ASMR videos, and this woman had a direct influence on that.




Her CNE wasn't the only video she made that attracted obscene amounts of people to ASMR, and inspired hundreds of content creators (myself included).  You might also know of a video called "Let Me ASMR You" that has inspired other ASMRtists to make their own versions.  She was a prolific content creator who had a nice variety of videos (including some great teaching role plays, and videos in Greek as well).  It has been three years since she disappeared.  I am so happy to share that she's back!






Cutebunny understands ASMR, and seems to be naturally inclined to trigger it.  I think she deserves a huge warm welcome back to the community that she helped build and was forced to leave.  Please check out her channel Cutebunny992 and say hello to someone who (though she may not even realize it) is partly responsible for making the ASMR video genre what it is today.  I hope that she stays, and I can't wait to see what she brings to the table in the future.

Looking for new ASMR content creators? Here are some I recommend! Making It Rain Tingles (Part 1)


I am subscribed to around 400 ASMRtists (atm).  I love having lots of options and seeing the different ways so many unique and awesome people make content to trigger others.  I thought I would maybe start sharing some videos/channels from other content creators that work for me.  Obviously I cannot talk about every single content creator in one blog post, so I will do a handful or two at a time.  Feel free to leave anyone you've found and highly recommend in the comments!


Accidentally Graceful's amaaaaazing short ASMR film "The Shift"



17MissCoco's "Making Nails"



17MissCoco's "Follow The Pen"



albinwhisperland's "Morticia Adams Does Your Makeup"



ASMR BEARD's "Trigger Words"



ASMR Barber's Channel Trailer


ArtSMR Dianne's "Strass Stone Book Tapping"



ASMattR's "999 Happy Haunts" ASMR Collaboration



asmr Yacyama's "Covering Your Ears With Binaural Fizzing Sounds"



Air Light ASMR's "Multilayered Tapping, Scratching, Unintelligible ASMR"


I think ten is a good number to start with.  If you don't see someone you love up here, it doesn't mean I don't love them too---I just want to pace it on the blog, so people don't feel inundated.  I think this way people can explore some (possibly) new material they've not seen yet, and I will try to update the blog frequently with these kinds of posts so you can discover more.  You are always welcome to post suggestions for other channels in the comments for others (and myself) to discover.  Happy Viewing!  :D
