Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to take a look at the first voice clip of the new Powerpuff Girls reboot that will come to Cartoon Network this spring. When the reboot was originally announced, it was met with happiness and a little bit of skepticism because of the replacement of the 3 Powerpuff Girls. Some fans were a little weary about whether or not they liked the idea of 3 new actresses voicing these beloved characters. Well now we finally get the chance to hear the FIRST new Powerpuff Girl voice! In this new clip, that Cartoon Network has uploaded to its’ YouTube page, we get to hear Natalie Palamides as the voice of the tough and spunky Buttercup (who was voiced by E.G. Daily in the original show). Although the voice is different from the original, I think that Natalie was still able to capture the edgy attitude that made us fall in love with Buttercup. What do y’all think of Buttercup’s new voice? If you haven’t seen this clip check it out, and let me know in the comments below.

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we are going to talk about a new movie/series that will hit your TV screens very soon. If you liked ‘The Lion King’ (and honestly who doesn’t?), then get excited because all of your fav characters are coming back in the new movie/series ‘The Lion Guard’. ‘The Lion Guard’ is a continuation of the stories from ‘The Lion King’ 1 & 2, but will revolve around the adventures of Simba’s (the main character from the original ‘Lion King’ son Kion. The story of Kion will kick off in November of this year with a movie, and then continue as a series (both of which will air on Disney Junior). It has already been confirmed that some characters from ‘The Lion King’ 1 & 2 will be seen in the movie/series. So let’s talk a little bit about this new instalment in the beloved ‘Lion King’ franchise. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!
I think that it’s really cool that ‘The Lion King’ story is going to continue. The movies/TV shows that have followed the original movie have definitely added to the story in interesting ways, so I’m excited to see where ‘The Lion Guard’ takes us next. Since the original movie was released in June of 1994 (which is over 21 years ago…wow!), it’s cool that this story will now bring this franchise alive once again for young kids today (since the movie/show is going to premiere on Disney Junior, you can assume the target audience will be younger kids…and older kids that pretend that their still 5…right? Right!). So what do y’all think of this idea? How do you think that ‘The Lion Guard’ will add to ‘The Lion King’ franchise? Are you going to watch it? Please leave a comment below to let me know what you think people of the internet!
Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to discuss an awesome singer/songwriter whose smooth vocals will make you hit the replay button again and again. Remember the name Travis Atreo because this artist is about to make a big splash in the main stream music industry. According to Travis’ official Facebook page, he’s currently working on his debut solo EP which should drop in 2015 (so get excited!!!). So let’s move on to the part y’all really want to see…THE MUSIC! Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!
The first video that we’re going to talk about is Travis’ rendition of ‘Thinking Out Loud’ by Ed Sheeran, which was uploaded on October 12th, 2014 (I couldn’t embed the video into this post, but you can check out the cover here: Thinking Out Loud – Ed Sheeran (Cover by Travis-Atreo). Now this is a song that is difficult to cover because it not only requires vocal skill, but also the ability to really portray the emotions behind the lyrics. Travis does a great job of really pulling at your heartstrings and immersing you into the song. Trust me once you hear his version, you’ll want to replay it again and again. You might want to equip your home entertainment system with quality speakers (browse the VIZIO website for some ideas) to hear his lovely voice all around the house; you’ll no doubt be humming along as you carry on with whatever you’re doing. Next up we have Travis’ cover of ‘Sledgehammer’ by Fifth Harmony, which was uploaded on January 14th, 2015. What I really like about this choice, is that Travis is able to show that he not only has the ability to make us cry, but can also perform a fun song that you’ll want to get up and dance to. These covers will only get you more excited for his original songs because of the amazing artist range Travis has already shown us.
Now we’re going to talk about Travis’ version of the hit song ‘See You Again’ by Wiz Khalifa feat. Charlie Puth, which was uploaded on April 15th, 2015. This is another cover that will have you crying, but also constantly pushing the replay button (this cover is multi-talented like that). With a unique sound and the ability to hold his audience’s attention, from the very first note, Travis has proven that he’s ready to be a competitive main stream artist that you instantly recognize on your radio. The last song that we’re going to talk about is Travis’ original song ‘Baby It’s Christmas’ which features former ‘Teen Wolf’ & ‘Arrow’ actor Colton Haynes, and was uploaded on December 3rd, 2014 (by this I mean the piano version of this song, I couldn’t embed the video in this post, but you can check out the link here: ORIGINAL Baby It’s Christmas (Piano Version) feat Colton Haynes). This is a really cool song that you will want to listen to all year long. The lyrics tell a beautiful story, and the interesting mix between Colton’s strong country vocals & Travis’ smooth R&B vibe is the best present of all.
Keep up with everything Travis is doing:

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to talk about an awesome YouTuber who you just gotta check out! If you love cartoons (and I mean who doesn’t), then you’re gonna become addicted to Brizzy Voices’ amazing impressions. Brizzy (who’s real name is Anna Brisbin according to IMDB) is an extremely skilled voice actress who seems to be able to mimic the voice of just about any character you can think of. I thought that this would be a really fun YouTuber to discuss because Brizzy is not only insanely talented, but also takes the time to show her fun, bubbly personality through her videos. So if you’re already a fan of Brizzy then you know what’s coming, and if you’ve never heard of her then prepare to be amazed. Ready? Let’s go!
The first video that we’re going to talk about is Brizzy’s ‘Voice ALL the original Pokémon!!’ video, which was uploaded on June 26th, 2012 (you can check out the video below). Now if you’ve ever seen Pokémon, then you know that there are a wide variety of voices on the show, that are all very unique. The fact that nearly every 150 voices will really leave you in awe (side note remember when there were only 150 Pokémon instead of 500 thousand billion? Old school stuff right there). I think that this was an equally awesome and courageous video to upload because if you do it right (which Brizzy did) then you will gain A LOT of fans and positive exposure, but if it comes out wrong then you’ll get endlessly trolled on the Internet. This is a video you’ll gonna want to replay over and over. The next video that we’re going to discuss is ‘Disney Princess Impressions’ video, which was uploaded on September 20th, 2012. This is another video that takes a large group of characters with really distinct voices and puts them together in a very cool, very well done video. I liked that Brizzy not only showed that she can imitate lines of dialog from these movies, but also some lines from the popular songs. She is able to match every line very well, and if you close your eyes while listening, you feel like you’re listening to the original actress. I give this video 5 Mickeys (because you know the whole Disney thing….yeah).
Ok this next video is going to be a big kick in the nostalgia, so prepare. We’re going to talk about Brizzy’s ‘Tara Strong Tribute Impressions’ video, which was as uploaded on February 20th, 2015. Confused? Ok, well you may or may not exactly know who Tara Strong is, but I GUAREENTEE that if you were a kid (or a kid at heart) in the 90s and well even now, then you know Tara Strong’s work. With a wide variety of characters such as: Dill Pickles from the ‘Rugrats’, Bubbles from ‘The Powerpuff Girls’, Melody from ‘The Little Mermaid 2’, Timmy Turner & Baby Poof from ‘The Fairly Odd Parents’, Raven from ‘Teen Titans’, and well so many that we would need a few more posts in order to go through them all. Needless to say Tara Strong is a voice acting legend, and it was so cool to see Brizzy do such an amazing tribute to her. As always the voices were perfectly executed, and just further shows how insanely talented Brizzy is. Ok, the final video that we’re going to talk about is Brizzy’s ‘Cartoon Mom Impressions’ video, which was uploaded on May 8th, 2015 (which you can check out below). Although all of Brizzy’s videos are awesome, this is definitely one of her top videos, because mom voices aren’t the easiest for most people to do. Once you really get into the whole video, you see just how difficult and diverse our favorite TV mom voices are, because of the various pitches, accents, and even word phrasing that their voices have. However, Brizzy doesn’t let us down, and continues to prove that not only will she continue to release that we love, but she will also work very meticulously to make videos that are more and more awesome. Gotta love YouTubers who continue to push their boundaries.
