Things Aren’t Fine, Fine Bros

Today we are talking about the internet, more specifically youtube. Before I share my actual opinion, I am going to try to present as much information on this subject as possible in this one post for you to see. Since trying to find all this information in one place is like herding cats.

After that is all done, than I will share my opinion on this matter. Grab your popcorn, get something to drink ,and get comfortable.

All right, let us begin!

fine_bros

If you don’t know who The Fine Bros are, they created a bunch of react video series on youtube. Kids react, Elders react, youtubers react, teens react,etc. It has always been pretty popular.

Well, not anymore.

This past weekend they uploaded a video to youtube (which they have since taken off their channel). This guy below does a reaction video to it and has the whole video in this video as a result. He is well spoken and really cool to listen to btw,  one of the few good things to come out of this fiasco.

As a result of this announcement, many people were outraged and expressed there feelings on youtube, some were pretty calm like this guy. Others used satire.

Some youtubers were just downright angry. This next two videos uses curses and flips the bird, so be warned.

A long time ago when Pottermore first came out I was on the website and I was bored by it.

Before you judge me, please keep reading. I was expecting this magical, wonderful experience. I was expecting games, puzzles, and being able to do all this cool stuff that really didn’t happen. To be honest I don’t know what I was expecting, but I was disappointed. the first time around I took the sorting hat quiz and I was sorted into Gryffindor. (for I like Slytherin and Ravenclaw). Despite my disappointment with being in Gryffindor I decided to keep playing.  I became quickly bored and abandoned PotterMore.

I guess after the last book came out, than the last movie, I was in mourning. Even though I was disappointed with the last book and expected more than a really long camping trip I was really sad about the magic and how I could never relive the whole experience, only remember. For me I guess I was hoping that this could help me relive the experience and I was just disappointed that it didn’t happen.

Well a few days ago I  decided I would go back on. Wow, has PotterMore changed a lot. I feel like I am reliving the magic again and I am very happy to be learning more backstory to the wonderful world that J.K. Rowling had created.

Unfortunately,I had forgotten the email, username, and password I had in order to access PotterMore. I decide to start a new one and see what would happen. I had screenshot the whole experience. I even screen shoot the questions for the sorting hate so I could remember how I answered them, but for some strange reason I can’t find the file.

I think it was magic that did it. Or the Nargles.

So what house did I end up in?

Ravenclaw! (The House mascot is an eagle. An Eagle! How hard is it to just understand that? I swear everytime I try to get Ravenclaw merchandise there is always a raven on it. I understand its easy to get confused because of her name, but come on already!) Moving on from random rant….

I was very excited and happy. I felt like this was truly my house. No, I didn’t research the questions before this. I went in blind and not remembering any of the questions from the first time around. I can’t tell you how happy I was when I got my wand too! Oh the Joys of being a Ravenclaw! I knew this was truly my house!

My Wand is 13 3/4 inches, Cherry Wood, Core is Phoenix Feather, and it is slightly yielding.

Worst Superbowl Commercial of 2014

carmax-slow-clapNow is time to pick the  worse Superbowl Commercial of 2014.

Drumroll please….

….

….

Basically every car commercial. I seriously lost track of how many car commercials there were after the 10th one.  Was I the only one who was annoyed/irritated by the number of car commercials this year?

I did like the Romance Chevy one with the bull and the car commercial where they were working with cancer research was nice. That is really it though.

Please, next year, less car commercials. There were so many car commercials I actually didn’t want to buy a car and I have never owned a car before!

Which commercial did you think was the worst? Did you think there were way too many car commercials this year? Let me know in the comments!

Commercials that Should have Aired During The Superbowl

There were two ads that I wish to have seen during the Superbowl. One was banned and one would probably never make it to be considered.

1.) Daniel Defense Super Bowl Commercial

 

This commercial sparked a lot of controversary because anti gun acitivists don’t like it and pro gun activist do. While I am against violence, I am for defending oneself and having laws banning guns won’t stop bad people from getting them. I would want to have a chance at protecting myself from another person that has a gun.

 

2.) Proud to Be

 

Why do we continue to use Redskin as a mascot? First of all the term is an insult. Please spread the word. This is ridiculous, why can’t we just change the mascot to a different name (yes I know years of tradition, merchandise, etc. Well that excuse was used for everything else that’s wrong).

Superbowl 2014 Commercials That Pushed the Mark

KNXV_Cheerios_Super_Bowl_commercial_2014_20140202204733_320_240

The Superbowl commercials seem to push the mark when it comes to representation this year. I am really excited about this.

Also I want to show commercials that as a company they got it right,

  • Cheerios

    I love this commercial simply because there is representation of an interracial family. How awesome is that?

  • Coke

    America the Beautiful sung in different languages and showing the diversity in the United States. Awesome!

  • Duracell

    I love how showed someone who has a disability overcome it. I think it is great and will help encourage others to follow their dreams.

  • Goldieblox

    How cool is this! I had heard about this company a few months back, but the fact they were able to advertise at the Superbowl makes me happy. I hope their business grows.

  • Go Daddy  Puppet Company


    I was so happy about this. There was no girl being sexualized. It just focused on the fact that Go Daddy is a website that helps other people make their own websites.

  • Microsoft

    A father and a Former NFL Player living with ALS. Representing those with special needs once more!

Here are my top favorite commercials from the Superbowl

Top 5 Favorite

5.) Danons Okios Greek Yogurt

I enjoyed this commercial so much. I couldn’t believe the other two from Full House was there. Made me so happy.

4.) Budweiser Military Commercial

Anytime their is military recognition for the hard work they do, I am happy.

3.) Duracell Trust Your Power

I love this commercial because it shows someone who has risen to the challenges that life gave them and overcame them.

2.)Radioshack- The 80s Called

I could not stop laughing with this commercial. This was so creative. Reminded me of the Dominos commercial and how the commercial stated, “we don’t suck anymore.” I think it is great

1.) Puppy Love

Out of all the commercials, I thought this was so adorable, cute, and creative. I love how the horses basically free the puppy from the car and they bring their friend back home.

So these are my 5 favorite superbowl commercials of 2014. What were your favorite commercials of 2014? Let me know in the comments!

Superbowl 2014

My mom made some excellent food for the superbowl and I must say I really enjoyed it. We really didn’t do much preparation wise. I did dress in Broncos colors for that was the team I decided to root for for the day.

Here are some pictures that mom & I took of the food mom made and the decorations that she put together:
