Pray For Manchester

They didn’t deserve to die in their state of innocent bliss. The kids at that concert were just having a great time watching their idol Ariana Grande sing – I know I would have if I were there even if I wasn’t the biggest Ariana fan. I feel sympathy for all of those who lost their lives. It’s great that everyone came together and paid their tributes to the fallen in Manchester. Not to wish anything bad on anyone, but I do hope that whoever did this gets what’s coming for them: a lifetime of suffering and punishment. If they don’t care that a packed house of people, many of them children and teens, have their lives ended in a flash of a second, then why should we give them any forgiveness?

Today we band together for Manchester in the United Kingdom and hope that those that lost their loved ones can make it through their sadness and despair. Life will move on as usual but for the families of the victims, there will always be a gaping hole that can never be patched up. It’s another in a series of attacks in the UK that have happened on the 22nd. Why the 22nd? Is it just a coincidence? Or a deeper conspiracy? I don’t know but there are probably some good theories to it that I would love to explore.

Kids in the Street

This video went viral on social media today and is quite fascinating to watch. I just had to do something interesting with it.

YouTube Rewind 2016

Another year of YouTube is nearly in the books. To celebrate 2016’s greatest moments, the annual Rewind is back again and better than ever.

This is my reaction video. Enjoy!

My Own Private Hell

It seems like most days I am stuck in a state of confusion,boredom, and sameness. I can’t escape this prison that is my life right now, because there is no where else to go. At times, I feel so vulnerable, so invisible. I try as I might but I am trapped in my head, unable to find the answer. I’m sorry but I can’t be that insane crazy funny guy everyday like the world seems to think everyone should be. Some people can just turn on the switch instantaneously and act like nothing is wrong. I just can’t keep up with that.

Being in a constant state of peace that comes from retreating to being by myself is something I enjoy. I find that the more I hang around others, the more tired I get because I can’t keep up with the constant energy. Being in a constant state of peace is great because it means I don’t have to feel sad all the time.

Some people don’t understand depression

When I find that even ground and can feel happy and not depressed, I am okay. But I do get depressed a lot because I feel as if my life is moving way too slow and isn’t really getting anywhere. It helps that I get a disability check every month now, mostly because I am unable to drive a car and find an actual job.That’s what it’s all come to, my life, taking advantage of the Internet’s vast resources to make my life that much more fulfilling. I want to have a voice in this day and age, to stand up for the people that otherwise have a tough time speaking for their selves.

flat·ter·y: 
noun
  1. excessive and insincere praise, especially that given to further one’s own interests.

It’s very flattering when I get compliments from others on here and elsewhere. I feel less lonely and apart of a much bigger group.

I just want someone to love. That’s all. I know it is sometimes hard for me to express myself and when others have much louder voices than I do, I get drowned out easily. I want to be the best version of myself I can be. I want to own up to my ultimate potential, want to be able to do everything I can in this life.

Hopscotch

The edges of the hopscotch squares, the mirror of a childhood pastime. Many different countries play this game and the rules are slightly different in some, as a video I found explains.

20 Years of Coldplay

Coldplay turns 20 this year. From 1996 to 2016 they have released seven albums and have won seven Grammy Awards. They weren’t always known by Coldplay but by the names Pectoralz and Starfish before settling on their official name in 1998.

Here is a song written for their debut album “Parachutes” released in March 2000. As you can see, the music video is very raw and unedited, filmed on what looks a small soundstage. It originally aired on MTV before being uploaded to YouTube in 2011.

Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 

 

I watched this series of videos on YouTube yesterday, prompted by “The Film Theorists”, and didn’t even know what to think. It was the weirdest adventure. They start off like educational videos and then go into a creepy sequence of disturbing images and shock moments. “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared” has got to be the most beautiful and artistic creation I’ve seen so far. Unlike some viral videos, this one makes you think. It’s deep and layered with a message that is not so easy to understand. The unpredictability witnessed by someone who has never watched these is amazing – it was especially for me.

Now, this sixth and final one (though fans have tried to make their own theorized 7th) is obviously dealing with death. The three puppet friends are in some kind of purgatory. Scenes, characters, and dialogue from the previous episodes are featured. The Yellow Guy lies in bed thinking about his friends that have gone missing, reflecting with an old photo album. The talking lamp tells him how he can dream about the most morbid and nightmarish things and then characters from the previous episodes, such as the steak and clock, randomly appear and disappear in the room one by one, faster and faster until Yellow Guy is going insane.

Oh, and the songs in these videos are catchy as ever, especially in the first video that sings about creativity. “Green is not a creative color”. Why? The first one was probably supposed to be a one time thing done for kicks, but after people started talking about it and theorizing, a Kickstarter program was initiated to fund the second and subsequent ones. I must have watched the sixth one numerous times. It’s such a timeless creation. The whole series, while rather short, is unique. It’s time to fund a “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared” feature length film.
