YouTube Wednesday: Take your seat on the nostalgia train as we review the 1st ‘Captain Underpants: The Epic First Movie’ trailer

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re taking another ride on the nostalgia train. If you were a kid in the late 90s then I have a treat for you! After millions of book sells, countless years, and A LOT of Marvel movies, we’re finally getting a movie about a very under appreciated superhero. Yup, today we’re talking about the ‘Captain Underpants: The Epic First Movie’ trailer. Whether you loved this series, or wished everyone would shut up about it, you can’t deny the legacy and reach of this series. When the 1st trailer for the movie dropped recently, I knew that we had to talk about it, so let’s get to the trailer. Ready? Ok, lets go!!!

First let’s get into a brief history lesson about this book series. Captain Undepants was 1st release in the U.S. on September 1, 1997 and ran through August 25, 2015. Over the years the series has been met with critical acclaim and controversy which has landed it at the top of several banned books lists (which honestly we all know only makes a book more popular). Now as for the trailer itself, we definitely see that the movie seems to follow the original source material very closely. Firstly we meet 4th grade best friends George Beard and Harold Hutchins who love pulling pranks at school, and writing about the superhero they created together, Captain Underpants. George and Harold are known to be troublemakers at their school, much to the dismay of the evil Principal Benny Krupp. When George and Harold get in trouble one day, they hypnotize Principal Krupp and he starts to believe that he is Captain Underpants, thus our adventure begins. With the voice talents of stars such as: Kevin Hart (who honestly probably doesn’t need an introduction), Ed Helms (known for his work on ‘The Office’ as well as ‘The Hangover’ movie series, Nick Kroll (who most recently worked on the highly successful 2016 adult animation movie ‘Sausage Party’), this movie is definitely expected to be a huge success. So what do you think people of the internet? Will ‘Captain Underpants: The First Epic movie be a success or a laughable flop? I guess we’ll find out on June 2nd just how far the nostalgia train will ride

Monday Memos: Book review of ‘The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett’

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we’re going to review a very unique book. If you haven’t heard of ‘The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett’ by Chelsea Sedoti then you need to keep reading because this book will most likely make it on to your TBR list this year. I was fortunate enough to receive an advance copy of this book however, I would never lie to y’all in a review and this book definitely has some issues that we’re going to discuss. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!
 
‘The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett’ begins by introducing us to our protagonist Hawthorne. She is a young teenage girl who becomes fascinated by the disappearance of her classmate Lizzie Lovett. Hawthorne and Lizzie definitely fall into the stereotypical “loner” & “popular girl” roles and because of this Hawthorne hates Lizzie. Now as you’ve probably predicted, Hawthorne comes from a very eccentric family, except her brother who is your stereotypical popular jock who has a huge crush on Lizzie. Ok so now that we have our foundation set up, let’s talk about what I liked about this novel. Hawthorne. Yeah, that’s honestly all there is. She was a very witty, funny, and an all around enjoyable character (at first anyway, but more about that later). Now don’t get me wrong I don’t have a problem with stereotypical YA novels that follow familiar and predictable tropes however this novel just feels confused and disjointed. The plot begins as a mystery, then adds possible supernatural elements, then quickly changes into a romance (sort of), and shifts the initial mystery into a side-story. The ending is completely unsatisfying and doesn’t make a lot of sense, and the romance is awkward to say the least. I’m not going to talk too much about the “romance” because it would take another blog post to explain everything wrong with this relationship. We get introduce to Hawthorne’s love interest Enzo early on in the novel and he is completely unlikeable and uninteresting throughout the story. The entire time I was reading this story I just wanted to reach into the book and slap Hawthorne for wasting my time on him (she can be with him in off-screen land, but why do I have to suffer through this). Lastly, we land back on Hawthorne. Her character is my favorite and least favorite part of this book. She started off as such a unique, interesting character and turned into your stereotypical dumb, petty YA girl. It’s not often that we see new, interesting female characters in YA and it’s just so sad that the author ruined such a potentially great character.
 
So this leads us to what you’ve all been waiting for…the final thoughts. Honestly I HIGHLY suggest that you skip this one. It definitely gets a 1 out 5 smiley faces for the book’s lack of focus, uninteresting characters, and overall boring tone. Personally I only finished this book because I received an ARC and committed to writing an honest review. With so many other amazing YA books out there I wouldn’t waste your time with this one.

YouTube Wednesday: The 1st DuckTales trailer drops…woo-oo!

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going on a nostalgia train trip. I’m sure by now you’ve all heard about the DuckTales revival (if you haven’t check out my blog post about it here: ). At this point most of us have seen the promo pics and have heard the cast sing the iconic theme song. But now Disney has FINALLY given us the one thing we’ve been craving ever since we first heard about this revival. Are you ready!?! No! It’s not the announcement of a Recess revival (although fingers crossed for that). No, it’s not a Kim Possible revival…stop guessing already! We have finally gotten a DuckTales trailer! Excited! I knew you would be! So if you want to learn all about this AMAZING trailer, then please read on. Ready! Ok, let’s go!!!

 

The animation is definitely different than what fans of the original series are used to, but if you’re a fan of the the animation on other recent Disney XD shows such as ‘Wander Over Yonder’ or ‘Gravity Falls’ then you’ll love this stylistic choice. Another departure from the original series comes in the form of the voice acting (we’ll sort of). Scrooge McDuck’s nephews Huey(played by Danny Pudi), Dewy (played by Ben Schwartz) and Louie (played by Bobby Moynihan) definitely sound less childlike, and now have very distinct voices. They have also lost the famous Donald Duck lisp which further adds to their unique personalities. Two characters that do sound very similar to their predecessors are LaunchPad McQuack (played by Beck Bennett, most known for his work on Saturday Night Live) & Scrooge McDuck (played by David Tennant, most known for his work as Tenth Doctor on Doctor Who & Barry Crouch Jr in Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire). LaunchPad McQuack sounds very similar to the voice of our childhood & Scrooge sounds so identical it’s scary (and by scary I mean completely AMAZING!!!). We’re also going to get to hear a voice that we’ve heard many times before due to the fact that Donald Duck will be played by Tony Anselmo (who has been Donald’s official voic since 1985). Earlier this month the show was officially renewed by Disney XD for a 2nd season so the channel obviously had high hopes for this reboot. Personally I’m super excited to see what the new cast & crew can bring to this iconic show. What do you think people of the internet? One thing is for sure, whether this show is a hit or miss, it will definitely take us another 27 years to get that theme song out of our heads again (DuckTales! Woo-oo!).

Learning to fly dANA BURKEY

‘Learning To Fly’ is about a 12 year girl named  Max. She is a tomboy who enjoys hunting, fishing, playing sports, and just generally having fun with her next door neighbors Peter and Kyle. Max’s world is turned upside down when she discovers the world of competitive cheerleading. At first Max decides that the glitter and bows are too girly for her, but through some persuasion from her dad, Max decides to give cheerleading a try. Throughout the course of the story Max finds friends, enemies, and possibly two potential love interests (let the shipping wars begin!). I don’t want to spoil the rest of the book for you, but if you like sports, YA fiction, and stories with a great plot and characters that you will absolutely fall in love with then this is the book for you. Personally I couldn’t put this book down, so I HIGHLY recommend that everyone check out ‘Learning To Fly’ for themselves.

YouTube Wednesday: Sophie’s Series…the booktuber that you will love fangirling out with

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to talk about an amazing BookTuber that you NEED to be subscribed to. I’m serious. Go subscribe right now & then we’ll continue. Don’t worry I’ll wait. Did you subscribe? Awesome! Now that you’ve already made one great decision today, make another one by sticking around to find out why you’ll love Sophie’s channel (trust me you made the right decision by subscribing). Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

The first video that we’re going to talk about is Sophie’s ‘The Booktube Newbie Tag!’, which was uploaded on March 27th, 2015 (you can check out this video below). This is a really great video to start off with because it allows you to not only get a glimpse of Sophie’s personality, but also her love of books. In this video Sophie allows us to really feel like we know her by explaining why she started a BookTube channel, what book/book series got her into reading, and what fun & unique things she can bring to the BookTube community. After watching this video you’ll feel like Sophie is already your bestie, and it will leave you wanting to know even more about her. Luckily for us, we can learn more about Sophie in her ‘FIVE OF MY AUTO BUY AUTHORS’ video, which was uploaded on July 10th, 2015. Honestly you can learn A LOT about a person based off of who their fav authors are. When you’re a bookworm you read A LOT of books, and I mean A LOT of books so because of this, we all have a small list of authors who we love so much that you can blindly buy any book they release and know that you’ll likely fall in love with it. It’s fun to see our fav BookTubers nerd out with us.

Next up we have Sophie’s ‘BOOKS I’M BRINGING TO COLLEGE!’ video, which was uploaded on September 26th, 2015. Ok, real talk for a second everyone. Now if you’re a book nerd then you know that this is a problem that you either have faced, or will face in your lifetime. For most of us books are like family, they take you to far away places when you need an escape, put a smile on your face during good times, and offer you a warm sheet to cry on during bad times. So the prospect of leaving behind these treasures when we pursue higher education is really sad. Luckily, Sophie is here to remind us that it’s fine if you take some of your books with you on this adventure they call college, and even describes how she decided which books to take. This video is a MUST WATCH for all book addicts. The last video that we’re going to talk about is Sophie’s ‘ANTICIPATED RELEASES OF 2016’ video, which was uploaded on January 9th, 2016 (you can check out the video below). In this video Sophie gives us a list of some of the INCREDIBLE books she’s excited for this year, and also a quick summary of why she’s excited for these books. If you love books then this video will definitely get you hyped for the many awesome 2016 releases (it’s going to be a VERY good year people of the internet!). So now that you’re completely addicted to Sophie’s channel, go check out the rest of her videos, I promise that this is one channel that you’ll constantly have on replay.

YouTube Wednesday: Fuller House brings a new vibe to everyone’s favorite theme song

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to talk about a song that is very near andfuller house theme song dear to our hearts. Yes, people of the internet, we’re talking about the ‘Full House’ theme song. We all know that as soon as you hear the opening lyrics of that song you are going to experience a show that’s funny, quirky, and awesome. With the announcement of ‘Fuller House’, we knew that a new theme song would follow, and guess what…it’s here! Now let’s talk all about the theme song below. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

The new theme song is a cover of the ‘Full House’ original theme song ‘Everywhere You Look’ by Carly Rae Jepsen (which was performed by singer/songwriter Jesse Frederick). The song definitely has a more modern feel that sets a new tone for ‘Fuller House’. We also get treated to a new verse in the song, which really helps this version feel like its own theme. So if you haven’t already check out the new theme song, you can hear the song below (and some really cool behind the scenes stuff in the video). Let me know what y’all think in the comment section!

In a little over a year Ellie has obtained 422,700 subscribers, and 56,045,021 total channel views (so obviously this is a CAN’T MISS channel). So now let’s get to the part you came for, the videos. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

The first video that we’re going to talk about is Ellie’s ‘Mascara Tournament’ video, which was uploaded on August 10th, 2014. In this video we are able to not only see how knowledgeable Ellie is about beauty products, but also get a small glimpse of how naturally gifted she is as an on-camera talent. If you want to check out an amazing, entertaining video that will help you decide what mascara you should try next, then this is the perfect video for you. The next video that we’re going to discuss is Ellie’s ‘Beauty Hacks: Fail or Holy Grail? Red Lipstick Concealer, which was uploaded on February 6th, 2015 (you can check out the video below).

I love it when beauty gurus use their amazing sense of style in unexpected avenues. It’s videos like this that show how different Ellie is from other beauty/fashion gurus, because she is able to add that special something that makes each video an Ellie original.

Monday Memos: The Barbie doll that made history in 2016

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we’re going to discuss a toy that most of us grew upabby wambach barbie doll playing with, or at the very least heard about on the playground. Yes, we’re talking about Barbie. Over the years we’ve seen Barbie take on numerous professions, but this year Barbie is truly changing history. It was recently announced that Mattel will release an Abby Wambach in honor of the soccer star’s career. The doll is dressed in Wambach’s U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team uniform, and even has her signature hairstyle. After the team’s impressive World Cup win in 2015 (which earned them the first ever Ticker Tape Parade for a women’s sports team), and their inclusion in the ‘EA Sports’ FIFA’ video game (which was the first time women were included in the game series), this has definitely been a BIG year for women’s soccer. So let’s jump into the blog post and discuss how this move by one of the world’s most loved toy companies is changing sports & pop culture as we know it. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

Needless to say Abby Wambach has had an amazing career that spanned more than a decade, during which she was able to help bring Women’s soccer to the forefront of the American public’s minds. Wambach has said that she will focus her post soccer career as an advocate for LGBTQ & women’s rights. The marriage of Mattel and Abby Wambach is a perfect match because through this decision Mattel is proving that they are committed to diversifying their products as our culture changes. This will also help the sport of soccer as a whole, because it is one of the sports that most people only think about during the Olympics or World Cup. This seems to be the year that the sport (more specifically women in soccer), get the opportunity to truly become a part of sports & pop culture and garner the attention that they deserve. Good job Mattel!

YouTube Wednesday: Ned is back with his survival guide to life

 

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to discuss another show that is getting a devon's life survival guide yt wedreboot. Now I know you’re probably thinking that the world has gone reboot and spin-off crazy, but this show is spinning this idea in a different way. If you watched Nickelodeon from 2004-2007, then I know that you remember the show ‘Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide’. This show starred Devon Werkheiser as a middle school kid named Ned Bigby, who gave us tips on how to survive all of the issues and problems that everyone faces in middle school. The show was very funny and entertaining, but honestly did give a lot of good advice that you could actually apply to everyday life. Unfortunately ‘Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide’ ended with the three main characters graduating to high school, and thus left us to face high school, college, and life on our own. Luckily due to fan demand, Devon is now back in a new YouTube series that will help is all learn how to survive life. Three episodes of the show are already up, and they are AMAZING! so if you’re ready let’s talk about this incredible new series. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

So far ‘Devon’s Life Survival Guide’ has covered the topics of: fame, working hard, and choosing your own destiny in life. The show airs new episodes on YouTube every Monday, and will definitely continue to cover topics that everyone deals with. Also, each episode opens with a very interesting quote that is related to the topic of the video. What I really love about ‘Devon’s Life Survival Guide’ is that the topics that it discusses are aspects of life that we all deal with or will deal with in the future. Whether you’re in school or not, we’re all trying to understand the things life throws at us and make the best of it. It’s cool to see someone who helped so many of us as kids continue to help us now that we’ve entered the “real world”.
