Dear @youtube, please provide an option to remove the pause overlay.

2020s, Music, Video, Web

I’m a huge fan of YouTube and have learnt a lot from many of the tutorial videos on there from photography to cooking. Today, I have been trying to recreate a video reconstructing the song Feel Good Inc. by Gorillaz from Point Blank Music school.

At some points in the video, I want to pause it to see the pattern in Ableton that is being shown and recreate it in BeatMaker 3 on the iPad. However, each time I pause a YouTube video, this overlay comes up when I want to see the full screen.

It would be great to have an option to turn off the overlay, especially when I paying for the premium package.

By the way, here is a link to the video in question. Highly recommended if you like to see behind the scenes of a work.

Achill Island off season video – One Shot Adventures

2010s, Achill, Ireland, Travel, Video

Loved this video and saw it come up again on my YouTube feed. Posted it before on Twitter but wanted to put it here on my blog. Really nice shots of some parts of Achill even if other parts of the island were missed.
