ASMR Community Update: June 2013

Welcome to the June edition of the community update, where I include all the news that I either covered or didn’t get around to doing during the month. I usually post links to interesting stories over at the ASMR Research & Support Facebook page and Twitter.

To kick things off, at the beginning of the month an article appeared on, where the story was focused (no pun intended) on a young man who has upwards of 40 million views. It was reported that in addition to other channels he has, he also has an ASMR-dedicated channel.

Another UK-based website, the online edition of The Daily Mail, featured a story on ASMR, too.

Another article appeared on, and this was accompanied by a Q&A with Nicole, otherwise known as Pigsbum53 on YouTube. There is also some evidence that an article appeared in the print version of The Metro.

An article appeared on the German media website, And another  piece written in German appeared here.

Over in the USA, an article was published on The Verge.

Getting on to video clips that surfaced during the month, a somewhat controversial episode of Russell Howard’s Good News aired, and ASMR was talked about here. The episode can be viewed on the BBC’s website, but for those of you unable to view that page, you can still catch it on YouTube.

A teaser trailer for the upcoming ASMR documentary, Braingasm: The ASMR Documentary, was uploaded to YouTube by the director, Lindsey Ragone. An article that spoke about this teaser and the documentary appeared on

Plans for a live ASMR event for May 2014 are in motion. If all goes according to plan, it should take place in Florida. The organiser is looking to get more ASMRtists on board for the event, and tickets will likely be sold to those wish to attend to cover the cost of renting out the premises and the use of equipment. A Facebook group was started just for this very event.

You know what to do by now. Come back at the end of this month for another community update! Thanks for reading!

I apologise if you are having trouble leaving a comment. Sometimes the comment system doesn't accept comments. I'm looking in to this right now, and hopefully can find a fix soon. There are several potentional reasons why this may be happening to some people, and one of them points in the direction of a recent Blogger update.

This is the main reason why I am unable to respond to comments left on the blog for the time being, but rest assured that I do read and approve comments that make it through. If you really need to get a hold of me, then visit my contact page in the sidebar to the right. Thanks.
