Monday Memos: Gilmore Girls Reboot

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we’re going to discuss one of the most exciting imageannouncements of 2016 so far (seriously it’s AMAZING!!!). Yes, we’re talking about the announcement of the ‘Gilmore Girls’ reboot. For 7 seasons ‘Gilmore Girls’ entertained us with the show’s witty writing, interesting characters, and overall charm. Now that we have the opportunity to go back to Stars Hallow and see how all of our fav characters are doing, I know we have so many questions. So let’s all meet at Luke’s Diner and discuss the burning questions we all want answered. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

Everybody here? Ok then let’s begin!

3) What is Rory’s relationship status and what career path did she take?

Throughout the duration of the show we saw Rory with three boyfriends who were very different people, and helped Rory grow into the person she would become. When we last left Rory she rejected Logan’s (her college boyfriend) proposal and was single and ready to focus on her career. It will be interesting to see what Rory’s relationship status is now, and what career she chose. With her intellect the sky was truly the limit, so I know that we’re all anxious to see where they’ll go with her character.

 

2) How the show will honor Richard’s memory after Edward Herrmann’s passing, and how Emily handles this?

I know that we will all miss seeing Edward Herrmann on our screens because of his unbelievable talent, and the amazing way he was able to help mold Richard into a character that we¬†all still love and respect. Emily (Richard’s wife for anyone who doesn’t know) was always a very complex, and often confusing character to understand, so I’m really excited to see how her character will evolve and change as she adjusts to the life of a widow (btw Kelly Bishop who played Emily confirmed that Emily is now a widow).

 

1) Did Luke and Lorelei ever get married?

Yes we’ve reached the BIG question on everyone’s minds! I mean we loved Lorelei, we loved Luke, and more importantly we loved them together, so c’mon ‘Gilmore Girls’ writers let’s make this happen (please don’t break our little hearts and sink this ship, we might never recover for the shock…seriously ūüė©).

YouTube Wednesday: Keegan Acton…the new beauty/fashion guru that YouTube is obsessing over

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to talk about an incredible YouTuber who you will soon bekeegan acton addicted to. It can be really hard for a YouTuber to distinguish themselves because of all of the competition¬†from the other great channels on the website. Once you see Keegan’s videos, it’s easy to¬†figure out¬†that she¬†definitely stands out from the crowd. Not only is she knowledgeable about all of the topics that she discusses on her channel, but she’s also very entertaining to watch, has a natural on-camera presence, and she is able to engage her audience from the start of the video to the end. If you’re not already subscribed to her channel then you are definitely missing out. So please read on to discover the YouTuber that all your friends already love. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

The first video that we’re going to talk about is Keegan’s ‘Sephora and Charlotte Russe’ haul, which was uploaded on June 6th, 2013 (you can check out this video below). This video is the perfect introduction to Keegan’s channel because it shows us that she’s a natural born entertainer who can not only mesmerize her audience, but also leave them wanting to keep coming back to see more. I also love that this video is a haul because we get a glimpse at what Keegan’s personal style is like, which is a great way for her to connect with her audience. Next up we have her ‘First Impression | Nume Octo Wand’ video, which was uploaded on December 26th, 2013. First impression videos are great because we get to see what our fav YouTubers really think about a product without worrying that they’re just trying to get us to buy the product. In this video Keegan shows that she’s really good at reviewing products because she gives a very detailed review that tells us why the product is great, but does so in a way that allows us to figure out if this is the product for us.

Now we’re going to talk about Keegan’s ‘ My Braces Experience | EVERYTHING You Need To Know About Braces’ video, which was uploaded on March 17th, 2014. I think that one of the best things about YouTube is that we really get to know our favorite YouTubers in a way that makes us feel as if they’re our best friends. This video is a perfect example of that, because through this video Keegan is able to connect with all of her viewers who have braces, or will get braces in the near future. This is a MUST SEE video if you fall into either of these categories because Keegan is very detailed when she explains the process of getting braces put on, taken off, and everything in between. The final video that we’re¬†going to discuss today is Keegan’s ‘ iPhone Case Collection 2015’ video, which was uploaded on June 22nd, 2015 (you can check out this video below). Personally I love watching iPhone case collections because you get to see some really cool cases and learn where to get them (gotta have more stuff to add to that letter to Santa). In this video we not only get to see some really cute phone cases (I seriously want all of them), but we once again get¬†a glimpse into what Keegan’s personal style is, and how it has evolved. I really wish that I could have written about all of her videos because they’re all AMAZING, so I would definitely check out this channel if you want to give yourself an early Christmas present.

 

Keep up with everything Keegan is doing here:

Monday Memos: A Charlie Brown Christmas…celebrating 50 years of T.V. magic!!!

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we’re going to discuss an event that we all experience every year. This isa charlie brown christmas something that we all grow up with, and no matter how old or young you are, it still has the same affect. What am I talking about you may ask? A little movie that we all love known as ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’! In 1965 ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ first aired on CBS, and thus started a Christmas tradition that would continue to enchant families for decades. The movie was commissioned by ‘The Coca-Cola Company’, which asked ‘Peanuts’ creator Charles M. Schulz and his team to create the special in 6 months, after they viewed an unaired documentary staring Schultz called ‘A Boy Named Charlie Brown’. This year ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ turned 50 so let’s discuss why this amazing movie has become engraved as a part of our Christmas tradition. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

Although there are so many things about this movie that we love, I think that the 3 main things that you can pinpoint that makes ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ different than other Christmas specials is: the characters, the music, and the risks that this movie takes. One of the most important aspects of a great story is for it to have amazing, memorable characters that we can relate to. The Peanuts universe has brought us a lot of beloved characters from Lucy (the girl we all love to hate), Linus (the intelligent and practical one), Sally (the little sister we all wish we had), Snoopy (the cool one we all wish we were), and of course the wonderfully hilarious and fun Charlie Brown who we can all relate to on some level. Of course ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas wouldn’t be nearly as memorable without it’s amazing music. Whether you love more traditional sounding Christmas music such as ‘Christmas Time is Here’ and¬†‘Hark the Harold Angels Sing’, or music that brings a fresh feel to the season such as the unforgettable piano jazz number ‘Linus and Lucy’ (which you can check out in the video below), this movie will have you humming along to its’ diverse soundtrack long after Christmas is over. Finally, we need to discuss the incredible risks this movie takes. One of these risks is not using music in the style of what was popular at the time. A lot of times movies use catchy, modern sounds in order to easily win over an audience. ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ uses the opposite (and often risker approach) of using genres that¬†weren’t¬†necessarily¬†in the forefront of the American public’s mind¬†in the 60s, and thus makes very unique music that instantly mesmerizes you because it’s so different. Another risk that this movie takes is that it used actual child actors to voice the characters, and because of this adds a larger sense of authenticity to the roles. Shows/movies are notorious for using adults to portray teens and children, (because of legal, financial, and other reasons), so to use a cast that was primarily made up of children was very groundbreaking¬†at the time (and is still VERY uncommon today). Using children actors also added a sincerity and innocence to the roles that really brought these characters to life on screen, and has set a bar that all Charlie Brown specials have had to try to live up to ever since. Because of all of these reasons, we can see why we love Charlie Brown so much, and why we’ll continue to sing, dance, and laugh along to ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ for the next 50 + years.

Monday Memos: Clare Bowen…actress, singer, social activist

Hello people¬†of the internet!!!¬†On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we are going to talk about an inspiring story that I know you have all heard clare bowenabout. A few days ago ‘Nashville; star Clare Bowen wrote a Facebook post where she explained why she recently cut her hair. Now most people might think why should I care if an actress cuts her hair?¬†Well just stay with me here because you HAVE to hear this story. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

She went on to explain that the reasoning behind this change was due to a story she heard about a little girl who said that she couldn’t be a princess because she didn’t have long hair. Clare went on to explain that she had cancer (specifically end stage nephroblastroma) as a child. She said that she spent a lot of time in the hospital, and met other children like her who had lost their hair and limbs to¬†their diseases. Clare went on to say in her post that she “wanted her [the little girl mentioned above], and others like her, to know that’s not [by this she means having or not having long hair] what makes a princess, or a warrior, or a superhero”. She finished her post by thanking ABC and Nashville creator Callie Khouri for allowing her to change up her character’s look for this important message. In a world where we¬†are constantly bombarded with messages saying that we need to be smarter, thinner, richer, and overall “better”, it’s important to remember that we are all blessed just to be alive. In her post Clare wraps up her message by saying that “Self-esteem takes a lot longer to grow back than hair”.¬†This message is perfectly summarized in the¬†song ‘A Life That’s Good’ from the show Nashville (I know that Clare isn’t featured on the song, but the message in this song really hits you. The song begins 15 second into the video).

Monday Memos: ‘Thirteen Reasons Why’ just gave you 1 more reason to watch Netflix

Thirteen Reasons WhyHello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we’re going to talk about a new show that we’re all going to want to check out on Netflix. If you have ever read the novel ‘Thirteen Reasons Why’¬†by Jay Asher then prepared to get really excited! In 2011 Universal Pictures purchased the rights to make ‘Thirteen Reasons Why’¬†into a film starring Selena Gomez. On October 29th (of 2015) it was announced that this book would instead be made into a 13 episode miniseries that will be executive produced by Selena Gomez, her mother Mandy Teefey, and Kristel Laiblin (who has also served as a producer for films such as The Man with the Iron Fists, In Time, and Children of Men). I’m not 100% sure if Selena will still star as the lead character Hannah Baker, but I’m sure we’ll find out soon so I’m excited to find out. Personally I am a HUGE fan of this book, so I’m excited to see this miniseries. This is the latest book to get a film/TV release, following other Young Adult novels such as: Harry Potter, Twilight, The Hunger Games, The Divergent Trilogy, The Fault in our Stars, and the TV show Eye Candy, among many others. It’s really cool to see our favorite stories get a breath of fresh air by coming to life on the big and small screen, and I’m really excited to see which of our favorite novels will be added to this list next. So now let’s discuss the plot a little bit (and don’t worry there won’t be any huge¬†spoilers).

 

The story revolves around the aftermath of the suicide of a high school girl named Hannah Baker. We follow the story through the eyes of a shy guy named Clay Jensen who is surprised to find a box of 7 cassette tapes from an anonymous person. He listens to the tapes and finds out that Hannah is narrating the tapes. On these tapes she explains that there are 12 people & 13 reasons that are responsible for her committing suicide. She says that each of the 12 people must pass the tapes along to the next person, otherwise someone else will release a second set of the tapes to everyone at their school. This is definitely a really interesting story that will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions. The book ends with giving the audience a lot of really good life lessons, but do so in a very realistic non-preachy way. I am so excited that this book is getting more attention, and I am interested to see where Netflix takes this story.

Monday Memos: Mila, the ultimate fangirl

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we are going to talk about something that we all go little girl who loves adamthrough. Whether it involves a band, actor, book, or song, we are all fangirls (and fanboys…don’t think I’m leaving the guys out of this one). Whether you keep your fangirling to yourself, or you have a twitter account completely dedicated to the loves of your life, we all usually have one thing in common…eventually our ships sink. However, thanks to the internet one very lucky little 3 year old girl named Mila got to meet her celebrity crush face to face. Now I know that you have all heard about this one, but honestly this story was so sweet I just couldn’t resist sharing it with y’all (and you know you wanna watch it again).

 

In an interview a few days ago with Ellen DeGeneres, Mila’s mother explained that she told Mila about Adam getting married in a grocery store, and immediately changed the subject when¬† Mila freaked out (didn’t we all), but then she decided to tell Mila again and film it (again I think we all would have done this). Ellen invited Mila on to her show so they could talk about love, Mila’s relationship with Adam, their wedding plans, etc., you know typical girl stuff. After receiving a really cool Adam themed outfit (yeah Ellen I’m gonna need to know where I can get one of those), Mila actually got to meet Adam. Unfortunately for Adam, Mila seemed to be over the relationship, but she did keep the rose he brought her (good girl!). It is such a cute video that y’all all have to check out. So now that Mila has successfully lived out every fangirl’s dream, what will she do next? Blockbuster Hollywood movie? Walk the runways at the next Fashion Week? MIla for president in 2016? Whatever she does, Mila will always be an inspirations to fangirls everywhere!

Monday Memos: Interview with voice actress Lara Jill Miller

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ I am very excited to bring you an interview lara jill miller interviewwith voice actress Lara Jill Miller. You may know her best as ‘Kari’ on Digimon,¬†‘Clifford’ on Clifford’s Puppy Days, ‘Lambie’ on Doc McStuffins, and many other memorable roles. In this interview we talk about Lara’s career as a stage, on-camera, and voice actress, how she feels about reprising her Digimon Adventure Tri (let’s cross our fingers that the movies get a U.S. dub!), what to look out for from her next, and so much more! So now let’s get to the part that y’all came here for…the interview. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!¬†

 

Celinda: Hi Lara, first of all I want to thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to do this interview.

Lara: Thank you for asking me, Celinda.

 

Celinda: So I want to begin by asking you about your role as Amaryllis in the Broadway production of The Music Man, which starred Dick Van Dyke. What was it like to work with such an iconic actor at such an early stage in your career, and how do you think this experience shaped you as an entertainer?

Lara: Dick Van Dyke was amazing. So funny, so talented. I was so thrilled to meet him at my audition for the show, I couldn’t believe I was actually meeting the guy from CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG and MARY POPPINS! I was really little when I met him and I remember shaking his hand and seeing his really long feet in white sneakers, and then looking all the way up to his head, WAYYY up there.

Touring in the show, and then performing on Broadway was a spectacular experience overall. Traveling all over the US for the first time was really exciting. I love performing live and had a lot of experience in the years prior at a local dinner theatre in my hometown. Dancing and singing is a great joy of mine, and that made me realize I was born to do this.

 

Celinda: That sounds like such a cool experience! So, you’re widely known for your role as Samantha on the 6 seasons of the television show Gimme A Break. When the show ended Samantha was beginning her new life as a college student, and you also later earned a college degree yourself, so there was a very cool life imitating art aspect there. Were there any other similarities between you and Samantha, and how do you think growing up on the set of a sitcom shaped you as a person?

Lara: Well, I’m the youngest of 3 daughters, so there’s that. And I was pretty much a tomboy, but I certainly didn’t wear overalls like my character Samantha, NOR play with WORMS! I loved Nell as much as Samantha did. And well, when I got my braces off and got my hair cut, so did my character on TV!

Growing up on a set really made me ‚Äď well ‚Äď grow up. I learned a lot about responsibility, being professional, a great work ethic. And also I became a better performer over the years, comic timing and such. I also learned that when you‚Äôre a celebrity, people treat you differently, but that it can all change in an instant, so one should never take anything for granted. I loved and appreciated all the years on the show. Unlike many child stars, I really loved my life and came out unscathed, no drugs, no alcohol, nothing. My parents were wonderful and supportive and not pushy. I learned a lot about ‚Äėshow business‚Äô ‚Äď both parts: the show AND the business!

 

Celinda: Wow that is such a profound answer, and so true, many people forget about the business part of the industry. Well, a lot of your fans (myself included) might know you best from your role as Kari on Digimon. When it was announced that Digimon was coming back to continue the story of the 8 original characters, the internet went into a frenzy. How does it feel to have fans still get really excited about a project you did 15 years ago?

Lara: Love hearing from you and all the fans! Digimon was my first animated gig. Lots of great memories. And well, yah! It feels GREAT to hear that people love the project and love Kari. If the show comes back to the US for a US dub, I’d love to be the grown up Kari.

 

Celinda: I think I can speak for all of your fans when I say that we would love to hear you voice adult Kari. So, another voice-over role that a lot of fans know you from is Clifford’s Puppy Days, how did this experience differ from your experiences working on Anime?

Lara: Anime is dubbed after the fact. Clifford’s Puppy Days (and some of my other shows like Juniper Lee, Wubbzy, Curious George, SciGirls, Hugglemonsters, Doc, etc…oh, and also the new Nick show I’m working on…) are original animation. We record first and then they draw the character TO US… We CREATE the roles. And for most of these shows, we record together as a cast. That’s fun.

 

Celinda: That does sound really fun. One of the many shows that you’re working on at the moment is Doc McStuffins on Disney Junior. This show has been widely praised for it’s educational aspects, how does it feel to know that shows you’ve worked on such as Doc McStuffins and SciGirls are influencing your audience to become more interested in STEM (Science, Technology,¬†Engineering, and Mathematics)¬†subjects?

Lara: I‚Äôm so honored and thrilled to be a part of these shows. Doc McStuffins is changing the world! Really! What a concept to be a part of such a big thing, right? I love playing Lambie. And Izzie on SciGirls ‚Äď what a brilliant show! I hope that with both shows, we make a difference!

 

Celinda: I’m sure both shows will have a¬†huge positive influence on your audience. So what are some of the major differences between preparing for a recording session for a voice-over project, versus an on-camera job?

Lara: Make-up…or lack thereof! And wardrobe. Although sometimes I like picking out cute outfits to record in… although they must be quiet clothes. You know, mic-worthy.

The thing with animation, we don’t have to memorize lines, but I do read the scripts, and prepare ad libs, etc, ahead of time. Also each week for Doc and Hugglemonsters we have to learn songs, harmonies. There’s a lot of preparation for that.

 

Celinda: Wow, I never would have thought about a lot of that, particularly the mic-worthy clothes. Lastly are there any upcoming projects that your fans should look out for, and is there anything that you would like to say to any of your fans who are reading this interview?

Lara: Oh yah! There’s a new Nickelodeon show! And… that’s about all I’m allowed to say right now! Go to my FB Page and/or follow me on Twitter for updates. I’m not THAT active on those social media pages, but I’m trying! And I love hearing from fans! The nice ones (which I’m SURE the ones reading this are!) And well, thanks for reading this. I feel very lucky that I get to do what I love to do and that so many people love what I do, too. Thank you for that.

 

Celinda: Thank you again for taking the time to speak with me Lara.

Lara: Thank YOU Celinda! And thanks again to all your readers for reading this!

YouTube Wednesday: Some of our fav YouTubers have reached a new level of awesome

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to talk about something a little different madame tussauds youtube wax figuresthan what we usually discuss. This year has definitely been a HUGE year for YouTubers. Many of our fav internet celebrities have gotten book/movie/TV/deals, scored magazine covers, and so many other amazing traditional media opportunities. One of the most recent accomplishments that a lot of YouTubers can add to their resumes, is the honor of being added to Madame Tussauds’ Wax Museum. This is an INCREDIBLE win for Team Internet that will definitely change up the game for everyone. So now let’s get to the fun part! Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

In the past few months, we have found out that vloger Alfie Deyes, beauty guru/blogger Zoella, and comedians Smosh and Jenna Marbles would be receiving their own wax figures in¬†Madam Tussauds’ museums. Honestly this is a HUGE¬†accomplishment¬†for them, because it places them¬†in incredible company. This¬†also continues to solidify the fact that in the past 10 years, YouTubers have gone from “kids making videos in their bedrooms”, to actual respected entertainers, and moguls in their respected fields.

 

Now if for some reason you don’t know who Madam Tussauds is, then you definitely need to keep reading because you will become OBSESSED with this awesome museum. Madam Tussauds’ Museum¬†first opened¬†in London 200 years ago, and has since opened branches all over the world. The museum & displays wax sculptures of some of the world’s most important political, sports, and pop culture figures. Some people that have gotten a wax figure include: Barack Obama, Abraham Lincoln, Princess Diana, Jennifer Aniston, Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, Albert Einstein, Pablo Picasso, Muhammad Ali, Marilyn Monroe, and so many other amazing people. Needless to say, once you get one of these wax figures you are instantly added to a secret club of awesomeness. I can’t wait to see what types of opportunities YouTubers continue to receive, as the internet and traditional media continue to built off of each other.

Monday Memos: 2015 Teen Choice Awards Predictions

2015 teen choice awards

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we are going to discuss our predictions for who will win at the Teen Choice Awards this year. I picked 6 categories and chose who will most likely win based off of how well this particular person/movie/act did this past year. Even though the competition is really stiff I think that we have 6 winners here, but if y’all disagree, please let me know in the comments below. So now let’s get to the fun part! Are y’all ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

  • Choice Movie: Action
    The Divergent Series: Insurgent

Now y’all all know that we were all patiently waiting for Insurgent to come out, and when it did, we were not disappointed. The movie made 295.2 million at the Box Office, and stars SO MANY of our favorite actors (and some up and comers that we’re all excited about), honestly how could this movie not win!?!

 

  • Choice Music: Male Artist
    Sam Smith

I mean do we even need to discuss this one? This year Sam Smith has won 4 Grammys (including Best New Artist), British Breakthrough Act at the Brit Awards, 3 awards at The Billboard Music Awards, and Best New Artist at the BET Awards. So needless to say, we’re loving Sam Smith right now.

 

  • Choice Music: Female Artist
    Taylor Swift

We can all agree that we’re still singing along to 1989 (which went #1 in sooo many countries I can’t even name them all here). Honestly, Taylor Swift is one of the most powerful acts in pop music at the moment, so it only makes sense that she wins this award, because she’s Taylor Swift and she’s awesome.

 

  • Choice Summer Song:
    ‘Bad Blood’ Taylor Swift feat. Kendrick Lamar

This song is one that we hear on the radio ALL the time at the moment, and we still love it. This single was so big, that the music video for the song opened up the 2015 Billboard Music Awards (which you can check my recap of here: 2015 Billboard Music Awards Recap). So needless to say, it wouldn’t surprise me if this song won.

 

  • Choice TV: Drama Show
    Empire

Honestly from the moment this show came out, we were hooked. The show has drama, music, interesting characters, complex storylines, and way too much awesomeness for us to even begin to discuss. Even though this is an EXTREMELY tough category ( I mean you have Pretty Little Liars, The Fosters, and others competing), I think that Empire will take this one home.

 

  • Choice TV: Reality Show
    Dance Moms

Whether you love this show (or love to hate watch it), EVERYONE knows about Dance Moms. Dance Moms has already won this year at the Kid’s Choice Awards for Favorite Reality Show, and with the growing popularity of all of the girls, their moms, and of course Abby, it’s VERY likely that they’ll take home a surfboard this year.

YouTube Wednesday: Brizzy Voices…the YouTuber who proves that nostalgia never sounded so good

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to talk about an awesome YouTuberbrizzy voices 2 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‚Äôs ‚ÄėVoice ALL the original Pok√©mon!!’ video, which was uploaded on June 26th, 2012 (you can check out the video below). Now if you’ve ever seen Pok√©mon, 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 Pok√©mon 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‚Äôre 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.
