Day 285: This is Halloween

Happy Halloween, everyone!


I don't really have anything Halloweenesque to write about. Instead, I'm going to write something for the Alumni newsletter. (Jeffrey?) Yes? (Nobody has any idea what you're talking about.) Oh. Right. Sorry about that.


As I have mentioned several times, I am part of an organization on campus called UMSO, or United Methodist Student Organization. They started an Alumni newsletter this year and I was asked to write an…

Day 284: Review Wednesday #21 on a Saturday

In honor of Halloween being just around the corner, for today's review Wednesday I'm going to review It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.


It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown was released to television in 1966. 44 years later, it's still as popular as it was when it first came out. It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown tells the story of one halloween night in the Peanuts universe. Charlie Brown and the gang, minus Linus, Sally, and Snoopy. all go out for tricks or…

Day 283: Things That Annoy Me #28

For today's Things That Annoy Me I'm going to talk about something that is way too prevalent in society.


Things That Annoy Me #28: People who don't realize that there is more than one kind of love


As I was walking home today, I was listening to Children of Eden and I was reminded of something that happened in the performance I was in last year that really annoyed me and really annoyed my brother too. In this part of the play, Adam and Eve have…

Day 282: It didn't work out

So, it's very likely that I am not going to be able to do Review Wednesday today. So, you get another short blog, although yesterday's wasn't that short.


Given the fact that I am super busy today. I find that I do not have the time to write a blog related to the reviewing of things. Whatever that means. I don't really know.


I'm also writing this at the Union and there are a lot of people around and I'm feeling very self-conscious, so I think I'm…

Day 281: No Review Wednesday? Gee, that's a surprise.

Hey Mr. Snarky Title! There is no need to be like that. Jerk.


Anyway, as the title says, there is no Review Wednesday today. The reasoning for this is simple. I'M GOING INSANE!!!!! Ok, that's not the real reason, though it is close to that. I'll explain why.


First of all, I have a project that is due tomorrow. I'm pretty close to being done, but there are a few things still to do, so my free time will be taken up doing that. And that leads us to…

Day 280: Song Tuesday #26

Today's Song Tuesday comes from Company.


HARRY:
You're always sorry.
You're always grateful.
You're always wondering what might have been
Then she walks in.
And still you're sorry.
And still you're grateful.
And still you wonder and still you doubt.
Then she goes out.
Everything's different. Nothing's changed.
Only maybe slightly rearranged.
You're…

Day 279: Things That Amuse Me #28

After yesterday's angry blog, I think it's only fitting to talk about someone who amuses me (incidentally, this blog will be shorter than usual and it's likely that the rest of this week's blogs will be shorter as well because I'm super busy this week).


Things That Amuse Me #28: Meekakitty


Meekakitty is a Youtuber who I found fairly recently. It's hard to describe what it is about her that I find amusing. She is amazingly random (just like Wheezy…

Day 278: Stupidity at its Finest

So, I know that it's not technically Things That Annoy Me, but I want to talk about this news event that came out today. Why? Because it greatly pissed me off.


First, I would advise that you read the article yourself. I'll give a brief description, but I think it would help if you read the article.…

Day 277: Punishment Video

As per usual on the weekends, I don't have anything specific to talk about. It seems like that's just a constant idea in these blogs. I guess it just gives me a chance to ramble.


I am currently working on my punishment video. For those of you who may be confused about what that means, I'll give a brief explanation. As you know, I have been writing a blog everyday (at least you may have known that). So far, I have missed a few days, not counting those I took off for…

Day 276: Things That Annoy Me #27

For today's Things That Annoy Me, I'm going to talk about an experience I has last week.


Things That Annoy Me: People who turn everything into a contest


Just as a disclaimer here, I'm not talking about people who act like they turn everything into a contest. For example, I knew someone in high school (who I still know now) who tended to turn things into contests (she recently turned Facebook Poking into one). The difference is, she was kidding. I…

Day 275: Review Wednesday #20

For today’s Review Wednesday, I’m going to talk about Evan Almighty.

Day 274: Technical Issues. Again

As you can probably tell by the bigger writing, I am not on my computer. The internet on my computer has chosen today to be stupid. It really likes doing that.

Because of the stupidity of the internet on my computer, I will not be doing Review Wednesday today. Instead, I will do one tomorrow (and hopefully I'll remember this time).

In case you're wondering, the main reason why I don't like writing Review Wednesdays when I'm not on my computer is that the…

Day 272: Things That Amuse Me #27

For today's Things That Amuse Me, I'm going to look at a very different view of history.


Things That Amuse Me #27: Stan Freberg's The United States of America


This is really the only Stan Freberg that I've listened to, though I have heard of other things he's done that sound amusing. Stan Freberg is a comedian that used to do radio shows. He also got a D in history. So, already this is sounding amusing.


In 1961, Stan…

Day 271: No More Camera War

I came to a realization that greatly affects my war with the camera.



I can’t remember if I mentioned this to those of you who read my blog, but there is a camera in the computer lab…

Day 270: Things That Annoy Me #26 on a Saturday

You may have noticed that I didn't post a blog today. Or maybe you didn't notice. Or maybe you don't care. Whatever the case, I didn't post a blog yesterday. It was a fairly long day and I just never got around to it. So, here is Things That Annoy Me on a Saturday.


Things That Annoy Me #26: My Floor


Now I briefly touched on this whole issue when I talked about people who don't realize when they're not funny (incidentally, the person mentioned in…

Day 269: A Random Collection of Things

I had an exam in History today. I was aware that there would be no multiple choice, because our teacher told us as much. What I wasn't aware of was the fact that the whole exam would be nothing but writing. Oh, hold on. That wasn't nearly emphatic enough. Let me try again. What I wasn't aware of was the fact that THE WHOLE EXAM WOULD BE NOTHING BUT WRITING!!!!!!! That's better.


Now, I understand that exams tend to be writing. But when I say nothing but writing I mean that…

Day 268: Review Wednesday #19

For today's Review Wednesday, I'm going to review an older movie that still holds up in popularity today: The Lion King.


I think I can safely say that The Lion King is one of my favorite movies. It's also one of my favorite Disney movies. It just has the certain flair that shows the good that Disney can do. I suppose I should give the basic plot, just in case anyone hasn't seen it.


The movie follows Simba, the son of Mufasa the king. After Mufasa…

Day 267: Song Tuesday #24

Today's Song Tuesday comes to you from the movie Newsies.

Pulitzer and Hurst, they think we're nothing!
Are we nothing?


NEWSIES:

Pulitzer and Hurst, they think they got us.
Do they got us?


NEWSIES:
NO!

Even though we ain't got hats or badges,
We're a…

Day 266: Things That Amuse Me #26

For today's Things That Amuse Me, I'm going to talk about another website.


Things That Amuse Me #26: Oddee


Oddee is a website that I found relatively recently (probably about a year ago). It's a collection of lists of a variety of topics. It describes itself as "A Blog on Oddities: the odd, bizarre and strange things of our world." This is a very accurate description of this website.


It has such a variety of topics,…
