My Final Thoughts on The Fine Bros (Part III)

If you got this far after reading Part 1 & Part 2, congrats!

Thank you for your patience.

fine bros

Now onto my actual thoughts on this instead of just sharing all the facts as they are.

I can understand wanting to protect ones format/ideas, the thing is though, reaction videos have been around a long time now. They just became really popular on youtube and the fine bros just happened to be the ones to make it big.

They sad and stupid thing is they said they like how youtube runs and is different from traditional corporate ways, and yet make comparisons to America’s Got Talent.

Then to top that all of what they proposed was basically a pyramid scheme. The stated that they would share logos, branding items, and send out adive through emails to those that sign up to be a part The Fine Bros business. From what I understood, they won’t give you equipment, buy the software for you,etc.  Now one you would have had the videos uploaded the Fine Bros would take a larger share of the profits you made on your channel. The whole process works like Marykay or Avon business practice works. The Person higher up on the pyramid profits from the person on the lower part of the pyramid works.

Pyramid-Scheme1

Instead of starting your own reaction channel, creating your logos, and buying the equipment you would have to buy yourself anyway (even if you worked with fine bros) and keeping all the money for yourself, someone else would give you logos, random “free advice” in return for a bigger chunk of your profits.

you read that right

Don’t worry you read that right. It’s why people are irritated.

Things Aren’t Fine, Fine Bros Part II

Man, the brain fog is strong with me right now, but I’m gonna push through, want to share knowledge with everyone. There won’t be as many videos in this one, and this should be shorter.

Now when I last left off in Part 1 of this, I mentioned how Fine Bros stoled an idea from another youtuber.

More specifically Elders Reacts.

There was a channel called stillcosmo, which no longer exists that uploaded a video called Senior Reacts.

Now thanks to webarchives the internet is able to learn this bit of information

I want you to take note of the date.

April 3, 2012. 

Keep that in mind.

They announced a new series! Seniors React??

Wait a minute, what’s the date. This sounds familar.

Well, well, well. Would you look at that.

May 1, 2012!

A month later after another channel uploads this, they “come up” with this great idea.

sure

Here is more info on the timeline of that fiasco here.

Now, on top of this more drama has emerged.

What Color I thought #TheDress was (it’s weird)!

Some things, no matter how ridiculous, are just too fun to talk about. That is why I love the internet so much.

In this case we are talking about #TheDress. It has ruined families, relationships, and confused individuals to the point people are asking scientists and physicists as to what is going on?

I had gone to bed very early the night before, I was exhausted from a day of nothing but studying, being a little depressed, and watching DVR of reality shows (class was canceled again). When I woke up and checked my twitter feed this morning I see arguments of white and gold vs. Black and blue. Confused, I investigated. It all began on tumblr over friends debating over the color of a dress.

When I saw the dress, my first reaction was ‘what the?’

what-suspicious

I couldn’t see black in it at all! I saw light blue, but I didn’t see black. To me the other color was coppery bronze color. I thought it was light blue & a coppery color.

Yes, I know I am weird.

News articles, gag sites, and the company itself who made the dress are talking about this dress. According to wired it all comes down to science. How our eyes process low lighting.

Even though it is ridiculous I can’t help but laugh.

Here are some of my favorite memes I have come across that showcase TheDress issue:

My Thoughts on “Spoilers”

im gonna troll you so hard

I may tick people off when it comes to this, but I don’t really care. I am kind of irritated.

I know that when a new episode of my favorite TV Show, a new book to my favorite series, or a sequel to a movie I enjoyed has come out. I know there will be this crazy thing that will pop up on the internet called spoilers.

I also know that if I start getting into a series that has been around for a while there will be lots of fansites on the internet that could possibly spoil it for me. As a result I don’t go looking for it till I have caught up. I am okay with that.

And if a series is older than 10 years I shouldn’t have to post spoilers in the title. I shouldn’t have to post spoilers in the article at all.

But apparently on reddit you have to .

Even if the series is 16 years old….

Really come on now.

When I am getting into a series and I know it is old; I don’t go looking online. If I do, I know I am doing it at my own risk. If I am just getting into a series that is brand new, if a new episode has come, out and I haven’t seen it yet; I will avoid those websites in the meantime until I have seen the episode. It is a lot easier to do than you think.

I have missed a lot concerning Once Upon A Time lately. Due to my facebook feed all I know is that the Wicked Witch is involved. That is it. I don’t know anything about it.

When I have missed new episodes from Doctor Who, Once Upon A Time, Sleep Hollow, Game of Thrones, etc. you know what I do? I do this amazing thing called don’t look and don’t search for it. I don’t go looking for things on tumblr, pinterest, etc. If something pops up while I’m on there I do this amazing thing where I ignore it. I don’t read it, I just click away from it.

I know crazy right.

Now when I am talking among friends in person I have more discretion because well even if they cover their ears there is not much they can do about it. Instead I talk privately about with the friends who are in the know or I ask if that person cares if I spoil it for them.

Most of them don’t, a few do. It’s cool.

What happens if what happened on the internet happened in the real world, where people actually interact face to face.

I am in a bookstore or cafe talking about a new episode with friends. It is just a conversation between the two of us. All of a sudden someone comes up to me and says ‘you just spoiled that episode for me!’ You should have said spoilers!’ ‘I wasn’t talking to you though and you didn’t have to listen in’, I say. ‘Still though you can’t go around talking about it and spoiling for everyone,’ says whiny fan(girl/boy).

See how ridiculous that is?

In all honestly though I don’t know what is so hard about not looking for information related to your fandom. My father does it all the time. I do it all the time, and so does my mother. We are all Geeks. If they sees any article related to TV Shows and yes even movies that they are interested in, they will do this crazy thing where they ignores it and they don’t read and or watch youtube videos online, or look up anything related, unless they don’t care. Which sometimes they don’t.

I do the exact same thing. I don’t fanboy/fangirl rage at someone for spoiling something, especially since, I went looking at the topic in relation to said fandom in the first place. I can understand it may be a little more “difficult” when you are subscribed and or following that person. Usually the titles though are a pretty good giveaway of what they are talking about. I follow so many geek related sites and I have yet to have the entire episode of Game of Thrones spoiled for me. It has only happened once. Once!

Big example. I have’t seen the current season of Game of Thrones. I accidentally saw something about the purple wedding and I only know that…..

SPOILER ALERT

.

You have been warned

.

Are you sure you want to go further

.

.

Fine I am not responsible….

SOMEONE DIES

Honestly that shouldn’t be a surprise to:

  • those who have read the books
  • those who have watched the season so far
  • those who know that George R.R. Martin loves killing people more so than Moffat.
    (Imagine if they did an episode together…)

OH the Horrors!

I am not against warning people about spoiler related things, but there is a limit. Here is what I will post spoilers on…

I will still post spoilers on things that are:

  • The episode just aired
  • New books in a series that just came out
  • Movie sequel just came out
  • you get the idea….

But I won’t post spoilers on:

  • Movies (especially if the movie is based on a book- sorry I am no sorry- that is not happening)
  • Movies that have been in existence for more than a year
  • Book series that have been out longer than a year
  • New Bestselling Books (have to be about a year old)
  • TV Shows that are over in general
  • TV Shows Season that are over (like once the 4th Season of Game of Thrones is over- all bets are off)
  • Games- this just won’t happen

That is my stance because frankly if I have to put a spoiler alert on every single thing I am posting, it will take way too much time. And that is a little overkill.

So be warned anytime you see anything fandom related on my page. You have been 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.
