Oh Scrooge!

Hi everybody!

Well, being that it is Scrooge Saturday and I don’t know what to post about, I’m going to share with you something that I like.

That something being a new youtube obsession!

I’m one of those people who gets addicted to random youtubers and feels the need to watch all of their videos. Mostly they all end up being Nerdfighters. If you don’t know what that means then you should google it. There’s a whole wiki page on it, I’m pretty sure.

Anyways, I stumbled upon this youtuber recently and have been hooked on their videos ever since. I’m about halfway through.

Now, I’ll preface this by saying that the youtubers I usually end up watching on repeat are witty Brits. The accents! Anyways, I’m trying to say that I’ve always been a bit bias. This youtuber made me overcome my bias. (I’m a sucker for anyone who obsesses over English.) I mean, he’s even Southern, which is fine but I usually don’t find myself saying, “Let’s go watch a youtuber with a Southern accent!” Now, I can say that. So hooray?

I hope you enjoy these videos as much as I do.

“Pop culture stupid makes my head hurt!”

Oh, and he does sing some songs, so if you need your music fix you can find it all in this post.

Are You Hungry?

Yes, I am doing it. I’m giving into the societal pressures, and also my own obsession, and capitalizing on the popularity of The Hunger Games.

I own all three of the books, and yes, I read them all in less than a week. They were addicting, and I was happy to finally be on a bandwagon that didn’t make me want to throw up. For example, I have never, nor will I ever (with the exception of a certain youtube series by Alex Day, aka Nerimon), read the Twilight series. The Hunger Games, though, well they’re a different story.

So here is the trailer if for some reason you have yet to see it, or if you just feel like watching it for the umpteenth time (goodness knows I will):

Hopefully that embedded alright.

Anyways, if you’re curious, I’ll share my thoughts. If not, you can just skip to the end of the post.

Okay, first off. Let me list the things I love about this trailer. There are many!

1. Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss

(I wasn’t convinced at first, but seeing her screaming as Prim was being taken convinced me she can pull of Katniss’ super emotional role. I don’t believe her as Mystique in X-Men, but I believe she can be Katniss.)

2. Cinna

(Oh my goodness! Cinna has got to be one of my favorite characters in the series, and seeing the gold eyeliner of Cinna in it’s full glory on Lenny Kravitz is seriously so great! Words cannot express!)

3. Stanley Tucci as Cesar Flickerman

(The blue wig is not how I thought it would be, but I feel he will be the perfect Cesar, and I love it!)

4. Effie Trinket

(I love the bright red eyeshadow, pale complexion, outfit, and un-obviously pink wig. It was perfect!)

5. Haymitch’s ridiculous hair

(He looks kind of crazy, but I suppose he should. It’s great, just great.)

5 1/4. Seneca Crane’s Beard!!

(Oh my goodness! Where in the book did Seneca Crane have the coolest beard ever?!?! Please, if there is a quote about that, enlighten me. Even if it wasn’t in the book, it may have been my favorite minor detail in this trailer! Amazing! He must be a really skilled shaver.)

Okay, I’m sure there is a lot more to love about this trailer, but those are my top things. I didn’t mention the men yet, because I know it’s very controversial. Personally, I’m really hoping Liam somehow pulls off the role as Gale, because right now I’m not buying it. I know Gale is supposed to be attractive, but he’s also a man’s man and Liam looks like too much of a pretty boy to me. I don’t know, let’s hope he can somehow toughen it up in the movie.

As far as Peeta goes, I am really excited that Josh Hutcherson got the role. I would not have expected him to be cast at all, but I actually think he’s going to do a splendid job. He kind of fits the Peeta look, too, even though I’m used to seeing him as a brunette.

There you go, my two cents. I don’t know if you wanted to read that or not, but I hope it was somewhat entertaining. Now, before I fall too much off the path, here comes some kind of song or playlist that I have to correlate with this post. Wish me luck.

Ooh I got it! Since this is The Hunger Games,  the song I will leave you with will correlate to the ‘hunger’ theme. This song is called   “The Hungry Ghost” and it is by the amazing, the spectacular, The Cure! The lyrics actually fit in a strange way, because it’s about how we’re never satisfied in life: we always want more. I think that fits the mindset of the capitol very well in The Hunger Games. Well, anyways, it’s a great song even if there is no correlation. Have a great day everyone!

Hello

Hello, hello…! I’m so sorry for the tragically short post yesterday, or rather two days ago, technically. I know I’ve been M.I.A., but in my defense I will be doing my very best to keep posting, even if it is not each and every day. I’m behind on NaNoWriMo too, so this blog is not the only thing that is suffering. Hopefully, I’ll be able to give a very full and traditional post soon. I don’t know if any of you are waiting on it, but if you are then please be patient. Thanks for all your understanding. Now, I’m off to go write some more of that darn NaNoWriMo, and hopefully catch up on my word count. I think I’m only about a day behind, but that’s quite large since I’m planning on getting the full 50,000 this year. Have a great day everyone, and because I’m me, I will leave you with a song…

(This video is so amazing, right? I love cockroaches.)
