So the local Calgary news crew had a little artichoke dip mishap a few days ago and now the video’s gone viral:
Hahaha, this makes me super happy and nostalgic.
Sorry, I’ve been having a really crappy day and this made things a little bit better.
Holy crap, I just found a bunch of old America’s Next Top Model episodes on YouTube. Time to watch all of them!!!!
(I used to watch ANTM back in high school on nights when my mom would go down to Lewiston to visit Kelly.)
Edit: hahaha, I totally didn’t do a stats blog on this date like I was supposed to, did I? Oops.
I am 8000% obsessed with Clefairy now. I have no idea why it wasn’t my favorite Pokemon back when I was into the cards, but holy hell, it’s the cutest little thing to me now.
On YouTube yesterday afternoon, I happened to find “Clefairy and the Moon Stone,” the episode of the Pokemon cartoon where Clefairy first appeared (I’d watched several episodes that had been uploaded, so this one was on my “recommended” list on YouTube).
LOOK AT HOW ADORABLE THESE THINGS ARE SERIOUSLY
Also, I ordered a Clefairy plushie. Because I needed one.
Why not. I’m bored and terrified of my upcoming final in Dr. Lu’s class. What better way to prepare for that than to make a Powerpuff version of myself?
So I’m pretty into Steven Universe right now. Peridot is definitely my favorite.
(I still really like Garnet, too.)
I’m not sure if anyone who ever reads this blog ever watches Steven Universe or even cares that I like Steven Universe, but this is my blog, so I’m gonna post a few Peridot-related videos. ‘Cause I can.
How can you not love Peridot?
ALSO, have another really good AMV about the show in general (mostly fusions).
I walked about 15 miles or so today, and all I could think about for the entire walk was that Ed, Edd, n’ Eddy episode where they all pretend to be one another. Ed is Eddy, Eddy is Double D, and Double D is Ed.
I have no idea if any of my readers ever watched Ed, Edd, n’ Eddy, but I watched a crap-ton of it when I was younger and for whatever reason, that particular episode’s dialogue got stuck in my head during my walk.
Edit: found it on YouTube!
(Sped up ’cause YouTube.)
This show was great.
Ed: “I can do Eddy, I practiced!”
Eddy: “What do you mean you practiced?!”
Ed: “I have caused discomfort, ‘cause I’m Eddy!”
Have a really, really well done Steven Universe AMV.
Have you ever wondered if the Jeopardy! games were recorded somewhere? And if so, where?
Well, they ARE recorded, and it’s on the internet!
The website is called J! Archive and it contains (almost) every Jeopardy! game played since Alex Trebek started hosting way back in 1984. Since we can’t get Jeopardy! up here in Canada unless we watch it on the Spokane channel (which we can’t, ‘cause we don’t have cable), Nate and I are just going through the episodes, starting way back at season 1, and playing though the questions. It’s pretty fun (despite the fact that 1984 Jeopardy! is not nearly the well-oiled game show machine it is today).
The website also has a search function, just in case you want to see if a particular word or phrase shows up in any questions or answers.
As many of you know, I went to a Christian elementary school. We had an hour set aside for “religion” study every day, went to church every Friday morning, and had Bible-themed Christmas plays every December and Bible-themed spring plays every April or so.
Every once and awhile, we’d have an event (a BBQ, a “party”, a something-or-other) that required us to be at school during non-regular hours. To entertain us (i.e., to keep us all in the same room), our teacher or principal would opt to play a TV show or movie on our little TV-on-a-roller-cart. Being a Christian school, we never got to watch anything but—you guessed it—Christian-themed shows! The most popular one for us was Veggies Tales, but I was never really into them at the time. The one that I enjoyed (though “enjoyed” is a relative term) was called McGee and Me!
It’s basically about this kid, Nick, who has a drawing of his come to life and together the two of them get into all sorts of “you can get out of this by being a good Christian” mishaps. Actually, they were mishaps you could get out of by just being a good person, but they made sure to add “God” and “Jesus” in there because you can’t be a good person without those two guys in your life, right?
Example: the episode “Beauty in the Least” is about Nick’s Romanian pen pal coming to visit unexpectedly during Thanksgiving. Romanian Pen Pal is, according to Nick, super annoying and plan-ruining when he’s not in pen-pal-letter form, so Nick is a jerk to him and the poor dude gets upset (understandably). But through the guidance of God and the “love thy neighbor as thyself” idea, Nick realizes that he’s been a jerk and does his best to make it up to Romanian Pen Pal and his father. So like I said, it’s basically a “be a good person, dammit” show with a Christian bend. I always enjoyed it, though. It was better than Veggie Tales.
Here, have a link to the first part of this episode on YouTube, in case you were a ‘90s Christian kid and you want to nostalgia yourself to death just like I did tonight. That’s the whole reason for this post, haha.
This just in: I love Steven Universe. I haven’t liked a show this much since Metalocalypse, which is kind of hilarious to say considering how completely different the two shows are.
But seriously. I really like the premise of the show and the voice acting is great. If you haven’t seen it, you’re missing out. There are quite a few episodes floating around on YouTube, so give it a shot if you’re looking for something to watch.
If you’re curious about more, read a brief review of the show here!
Also, Garnet is my favorite and is pretty much a gift to the world. You might even say she’s…a gem.
Yeah, I went there. Fight me.
Edit: there is no better use of this song than in this AMV.
OH MY GOD, so in the finale episode of Daredevil, the aria Nessun Dorma is featured during a particular sequence (not going to say anything more…spoilers, you know) and for the past few days I’ve been trying to find the version that was in the show ‘cause it was freaking beautiful.
But I just found a video of Pavarotti singing it instead and it’s the greatest thing ever.
Y’all need to watch Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix, okay? It’s super dark and violent, but it’s really, really good. I was expecting to enjoy it when Nate and I started watching it, but I didn’t expect to like it as much as I did. Watch it, yo.
Also, the opening sequence is quite cool:
Alrighty, so every once and awhile I used to watch The Doctors on TV if I happened to catch them. Then they did this nonsense so they lost a lot of credit with me and I’d never stopped to watch them since.
However, today I was trying to find a channel to “watch” while I packed my crap for the move, and the channel playing The Doctors was the only decent choice, so I just had it on in the background while I did stuff in the back room.
I happened to come back out in the living room when they were talking about these, and I’m actually glad I did, because these special colored lenses seem pretty cool.
From the website: “The Irlen Method has earned millions of fans by providing a long-term, expertly developed solution to reading problems, headaches, light sensitivity, ADD and ADHD, autism and many other ailments–by directly addressing a core problem: the brain’s inability to process visual information.”
Check out the clip:
Super interesting! I think it’s something that could help a lot of people.
HOLY CRAP I forgot about Degrassi!
So back when I was in London (for like the three weeks I was there…) I had cable in my little dorm room. One night I happened to catch an episode of Degrassi and kind of fell in love with it. They had an episode or two on Nickelodeon every Sunday night or so back in the States, but it’s on EVERY NIGHT up here.
Degrassi is basically like Canadian high school soap opera, but it’s super addictive. Also, it’s weird to see Canadian currency in a show and hear them talk about road trips to Montreal or Saskatoon or other Canadian places.
Haha, sorry. School hasn’t started yet and I don’t have anything else to do.
I very rarely catch any of the new Simpsons episodes on TV, but I happened to be screwing around on YouTube when I found this preview for the couch gag of the upcoming episode “What to Expect When Bart’s Expecting.”
Super surreal and trippy! I like it.
