Popular content creator Casey Neistat has hinted at a possible return to New York after restarting his daily vlogs following a lengthy absence. 

Anyone who watched Casey Neistat’s vlogs when they were one of the most popular things on YouTube will immediately point to New York playing a key role in his videos. 


The YouTuber used to skate around the city on his Boosted Board, show what he was getting up in and around his iconic office, and regularly take his drones out to show off some pretty spectacular shots of New York. 

That all changed back in May of 2019, when he revealed that he was packing up and heading to California with his family. Upon making the move to the West Coast, Casey’s vlogs took a break but since September 11, he’s made a return to regular videos – and might even make a return to New York.

Casey moved to California back in May of 2019.

During his September 18 vlog, titled ‘She’s ready to leave,’ Casey noted that he had been speaking to his wife Candice about living in California and New York. 

He noted that every time that he and Candice “want to move back to New York City,” they end up having a weekend where they remember the big reason why they moved to Cali in the first place – family. Though, they do admit to still missing it.

“You still miss the city?” he asked his wife, getting a quick reply of “yes” back. “Do you like California?” Casey also asked, before Candice dropped a swift “no” as the video come to its conclusion.

While the YouTuber doesn’t state that he’s heading back to New York anytime soon, the fact that his Venice home has been listed on the market has added further fuel to growing speculation. 

The listing, which was been spotted in a number of reports, has the Neistat five-bedroom home up on the market at close to $4 million. 

While the listing might just be up to register some interest, or because they want to move elsewhere in California, fans will be keeping a keen eye on things in case any further hints about a potential return to New York and the east coast pop up.


Twitch streamer Quin69’s viewers can literally flashbang him by donating

A Twitch streamer has found a way to let his viewers flashbang him in real life — and it looks absolutely hilarious.

As streaming grows, it becomes increasingly harder for aspiring creators to really stand out among their peers, and you’ll often see that some of the top streamers have something unique about them, or their stream, that keeps viewers coming back for more.


The best example of this is someone like Dr Disrespect, who adopts the Doc persona whenever he goes live and feeds into the character, offering fans something a little more unique.

So, to stand out among the crowd, you need something original — and Quin69 might have found the best solution.

Quin69 keeps up a spirited stream for his viewers, and this flashbang feature only adds to it.

While streamers often take donations from fans who are looking to show support, Quin has given his viewers a little something extra.

That’s because if you donate a certain amount to Quin’s stream, you hear the call of “throwing flashbang” before the room goes bright white, with Quin forced to close his eyes or squint through the flash if he wants to continue playing.

As you can see below, it doesn’t look like a massively enjoyable experience for the streamer, who has to sit through the pain; but it definitely looks amusing for the viewer.


He clearly tries to shrug it off and acts as though it doesn’t bother him, but we can only imagine how often his viewers flashbang him while in an intense moment of whatever game he’s playing which, truthfully, makes it all the more funny.

For a good example, here’s him being flashed while in a boss fight on Path of Exile, at the worst possible moment.


Of course, it’s all fun and games, and Quin wouldn’t have the option there if it truly bothered him, but we can only imagine how many games he loses momentum in thanks to temporary blindness.
