Satisfying Slime - ASMR

Slime - YouTube

Life is pretty stressful right now, and if you're like much of the rest of the world, you've turned to the Internet for solace.

Some of us find escape in video calls and games, others in Netflix and music, others in endless scrolling. But if you're looking for a new, relaxing, visually stimulating way to ease your frayed nerves, perhaps consider watching videos of slime, soap-cutting, or any other form of "oddly satisfying" content.

The world of "oddly satisfying" content is large and undefinable. There are thousands of different types of content optimized to satisfy and relax you—from ASMR to binaural beats to zit-popping, the list goes on and on. The Reddit thread "oddly satisfying" is a hotbed of these types of posts, as are YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok.

For the purposes of this article, we'll stay away from auditory ASMR, instead focusing purely on visual content. This is your invitation into the safe, magical, fanciful world of colorful paint, billowing slime, and deliciously skilled workers doing their jobs well.

The Many Faces of Drake

On his 34th birthday, we pay tribute to the Canadian Chameleon.

Aubrey Drake Graham was born on October 24, 1986.

He found fame at a young age as one of the stars of the hit Canadian teen drama Degrassi. After his tenure playing Jimmy Brooks, he would transition from the screen to the booth, pursuing a full-time career as a musician.

Drake released a few mixtapes that were received well by fans and blogs, but it was the mixtape "So Far Gone" in February 2009 that would change his life and the course of music forever.

Since then, he would continue to shatter Billboard records, helping establish a sound that has since become the standard in Hip-Hop and has even transcended the genre itself. The keys to Drake's success are his talent, relentless work ethic, and his versatility as an artist.

On this day in 2013, Drake released Nothing Was the Same, his last great record.

Drizzy's first outing on Thank Me Later was a revolutionary debut in terms of its rap and R&B mesh, but it remained stiff and rudimentary compared to what we knew was possible from the emcee, especially when compared to the cult following that ensued with So Far Gone. "Thank Me Later was the one and only project that was influenced by...where I was at in my career at the time," Drake said of the project in last year's interview with Rap Radar. "I think I felt a lot of pressure to prove that I knew big famous people...it was definitely the one project that had the least personal touches."

5 Years of "TRAPSOUL": Has Bryson Tiller's Debut Aged Well?

The singer recently announced a deluxe re-release of the project will drop this Friday

If we've learned one thing about Bryson Tiller over the last five years, it's that he is a heartfelt person.

"Every day I prayed that this music thing would work so I could give you the life I feel like you deserve," he wrote in one of the many Instagram captions dedicated to his eldest daughter. The singer, who recently welcomed another baby girl with his longtime partner Kendra Bailey, praises his children so often on social media that his two daughters have become as synonymous with Tiller's identity as the somber R&B he curates.
