Note:Special Announcement is Moved to Friday once and for all…. I promise. Stay tuned!
Its Wednesday my dudes. And you know what that means! Fav Fiv(or some number that is not Fiv).
Today I will resent my Favorite Five Fast Food (also alliteration is awesome ain’t it).
McDonald’s is a classic, but as the MKTO song demonstrated, classic can be bad. Breakfast is their strong suit, and moving to all day breakfast is a move I approve of. But everything else, not good enough. Aside from desserts. Still, you would think their burgers would be decent by now. Nope! A solid meh.
4. Taco Bell
Taco Bell is a restaurant which I ate a lot of when I played baseball out of town. I mean, A LOT. Basically every baseball game was preceded by a hard shell taco with pintos and cheese. Recently I’ve been more of a soft shell guy though, but I digress. Their food is healthier than most other fast food and actually tastes good. But why do you guys keep making up foods and adding ‘-rito’? I don’t think it helps, but whatever.
Subway took a hit for me after being trashed-talked by the odd1sout a couple of times. While I really like his content and those videos are great, I still love Subway. The sandwiches taste good, they aren’t too expensive, and most importantly they are calorie heavy. My #1 cheat day food (and by cheat day I mean everyday).
Question for you reading this though:
Is Jersey Mikes fast food.?Because if it is it would replace subway in a heartbeat.
Sonic was a toss up in my mind, because I really love the experience of ordering at and eating at Sonic. Also they serve one of my favorite foods (hot dogs) which is something not a lot of fast food vendors are doing. Also A+ shakes and Slushies. But it still loses out to number one.
I recently have had a couple of Wendy’s meals and they are probably the best fast food chain burgers I have ever had. They have real burgers! Also nuggets and salads play a wonderful supporting role. And who can turn down a Frostie with Fries. But other than food, the drinks are great. The Wendy’s I have been to most frequently has a Coca-Cola freestyle machine, which is basically an endless fountain of wonder. So Wendy’s ranks highest!
By the way, this is the stuff dreams are made of. So many different choices!
Do you agree with my ranking? Of course you do because it’s amazing. Dissenting opinions will be tolerated though, so leave them in the comments below.
Sup dudes. Lets catch a wave straight into this tubular post bro.
10/10 Would Intro Again
and welcome to Life and You.
If you are new here basically I talk about my life and interesting things, then I take comments and questions from you. Plus I ask you questions every post.
Since that seques into questions I’m just gonna THROW OUT THE RULE BOOK and do those first.
Last week I asked (in poll form) what length of post you read.
8 people say that they read all posts, and that just warms my heart. 1 person reads shorter posts, which I understand. If you haven’t lost interest in this post yet, I would wait for Thursdays post :).
And I was going to say something to the one person that just scrolls down and likes the posts but they obviously aren’t reading this soooooo……………………………………
there’s a black notebook ominously titled “DEATH NOTE” in front of you someone seemed to have dropped. you look around, but no one else is there. do you leave it there, or do you take it home and become the N E W G O D O F T H I S W O R L D ?
Now I was tempted to pick up this book and create a world free of crime where solely I decide who lives or dies, but that got me thinking.
Who dropped the book?
I am definitely not taking the chance that a Shinigami with an apple addiction dropped it. What if they follow me without anyone else seeing for their entertainment. Because what if we talked? Became friends? They would watch my decent into madness with glee. No, not madness. Enlightenment.
2. What would the book do?
From the title it seems like you would write down the names of people and then they would have 40 seconds before they died. Maybe if you didn’t specify they would have a heart attack. But what if you did specify and you put shark attack. Would a shark just randomly attack them? I guess I just have the write reasonable deaths in there. But then also what if there were multiple people with the same name? I guess the book would have to sense the face along with the name that you are thinking of murdering. But what if my killings attracted the attention of a world renowned detective that somehow had a person pretend to be him and then I write down that persons ‘name’ killing him and confirming that I am the killer? I guess I would need a pseudonym. Maybe Kari.
This book seems pretty dangerous, so I would NOT pick it up.
hehehe jk, I know this is a reference to everyone’s favorite anime attack on titan.
Thank you so much for your question, and if anyone else has a question just comment it.
Okay now life.
Literally my life
My LML intro uses a less is more approach.
So life has been good, and school has been a combination of computer errors and lack of teachers so I’m fine with not doing any work. We recorded a NABUR a couple of days ago and on a totally unrelated note special announcement tomorrow!!!!
Thats kinda it…
WAIT WAIT NOO
I have a lot of PokeNews so you will be filled in on that Friday
So be sure to see last LAY if you haven’t already and my question for you is:
What is the best way to eat an Oreo (get creative).
Until then this is Jamie signing off like I always do:
Hello there you happy fish. I want you to know that this is the one of the first few image results for “happy fish”.
I guess he does look happy. But more like a forced happy, like the kind that clowns at birthday parties have to put on to amuse the children. Anyways, back to Free Lunch. It’s been a really long time (2+ weeks) since I’ve posted a Free Lunch, but we’re back now! If you don’t know what Free Lunch is, basically, I just sit down with a device for 5 minutes and write as much as I can before I am out of time.
I’ll be starting at 5:31.
Now it begins. What begins, you might ask? If you did ask, I would be inclined to tell you that it’s Free Lunch. You already knew that, this was just filler. MWHAHAHA.
In meaningful or at least slightly thought poking news, we didn’t have too much work in our classes today. This was very welcome, as I was able to accomplish absolutely nothing in the free time I had for finishing early. Literally all I did was write the introduction to this post (fish and all), leave it, and play Santale and Bad Time Simulator for the rest of the time.
We still don’t have a band teacher, and the substitute got angry at me for correcting her. Ever since she was hired she’s been trying to get us to do non-band stuff in band. She had wanted us to write Haikus, and put that Haikus were 7-5-7 syllables…
I can’t wait until she’s gone. Though she did redeem herself slightly by letting me play Trumpet in the back room, I still don’t like her very much.
My time is up for this Free Lunch. I’m sorry that it was a little on the short side, but hopefully it retained your attention nonetheless.
Thanks for reading all the way down to the bottom of this post :1
Minute shreds or ravelings of yarn.
The first person to answer correctly get’s eternal happiness. Probably.
Before I start talking about any of the topics highlighted in the title, first I’d like to apologize for not posting at all these last few days. As much as i’d like to offer the excuse that i’ve been really busy with school, the truth is that I really haven’t. I’ve just been lazy and uninspired. However! Now i’m back, and taking into consideration school and everything else, I can safely say there will be at least 2 posts outside of Free Lunch every week. I know this is a bit of a downgrade from the everyday posting, but that turned out to be kind of a disaster, resulting in a lot of filler posts and draining me creatively. So yeah, i’m sorry.
Now, on to the main post!
I’ll start with hydration day. Yesterday, as you probably know, was August 20th! Before I start throwing around some complex numbers, first think of how much 8 sounds like H. Now. Focus on this.
Eight Two Oh
Aitch Two Oh
Now that you have been enlightened, know that for me, yesterday was 8/20. So on 8/20 at 8:20PM, Brendan, Saoirse and I each drank an entire bottle of water in one minute.
After that, I felt a little like I was about to explode, BUT IT WAS ALL WORTH IT LOOK!
ANDREW HUANG NOTICED ME!
Given that he is one of my favorite Youtubers, this cheered me up considerably. For reference, he is the person who originally made that song “PINK FLUFFY UNICORNS DANCING ON RAINBOWS”. While I don’t particularly like the song, he still does lots of other amazing musical stuff.
Today was the day of the American Eclipse. I got to experience it at a college, where we got free chairs, food , and water. I took a few pictures with the glasses over the lens of my phone camera (without during totality), and even though they didn’t turn out too well, it’s still a good enough momento for me, along with the glasses.
Slightly warped and also not totality.
Due to the eclipse, there was a large influx of people from around the world and country who came to Nashville, so I haven’t been getting any reception the entire day.
This post is made possible by Iverson’s generosity in giving me a log in for the xfinitywifi hotspots. Thank you Iverson.
That’s all for this post, thanks for reading all the way down to the bottom :0
An acquired behavior pattern regularly followed until it has become almost involuntary.
Waaaaaaay late I know. I explained all my decisions in the last LAY, so check that out here.
But anyways, flashback to last time on TIP.
Jamie woke up late, but still managed to get to breakfast. He then found his button up, went to class, and had a relatively uneventful evening. We now find him talking about the next day..
I woke up more or less on time Tuesday, and went to class. Most of the first day was meeting my classmates and generally being awkward. However the next 4 days (the week) generally has more material.
So without further ado..
Class in Week One
As remembered by Jamie Watson
First of all my teacher introduced the class and had us swear our allegiance to the detectives code the curly locks of Blueberry Pumpkinpatch (Benedict Cumberbatch). After all of us were sworn in on the sharpened nose of Benadryl Cukecumberman
we were divided up into the great agencies of detective work. The CIA, MI-6, NSA, and of course the U.S Forestry service. And I bet you’ll never guess which one I got.
We were the laughingstock of the groups just for our name, but I was actual okay with it because my great-grandfather was in the forestry. Shout out to you James Watson the First!
Anyways we played a really fun twist on 2 truths and a lie where you can interrogate the people. So if I said “I met the Rock,” you could ask “Where? How? When?”. This way it adds skill to the game. So after the entire class interrogated one person each group decided which one was the lie. If you were right your agency got a point, if you were wrong they didn’t.
I do not exaggerate when I say that my group was 8 points behind the agency in 3rd place by the end of it all. So now all the other groups have a legitimate way to laugh at us.
So agency points as I remembered:
NSA, CIA,MI-6: WAY AHEAD
But we learned about so many interesting things this week.
Edgar Allan Poe actually wrote the first amateur detective story and is considered the grandfather of amateur detective fiction
We examined different portrayals of Sherlock Holmes
We watched the Clue movie and examined that
We learned about New Historicism
The list goes on and on, but if you want to know more about anything just comment and I’ll answer.
The main project for this week was putting on our own play. We all worked together to write a murder mystery with audience interaction and a loose plot. I played Brad Whitford, the a friend of Sherlock Holmes that imposed on Watson’s position of best friend. Naturally Watson had to murder me after she murdered some other person for no reason. She then tried to murder ANOTHER of Sherlock’s friends but then she was stopped. I was being helpful and manning a concession stand at a soccer game when she shoved me in a freezer and I froze to death in 20 minutes. After that I was discovered by Emo Girl (her name in the script) and unceremoniously dragged out and never referenced again except for the conclusion. Guess I wasn’t actually that good a friend of Sherlock. However the line, “Why was he taking a nap in the freezer?’ became a meme for the entirety of camp. It’s even in our Term Book:
And while reading Edgar Allan Poe’s ‘Murders in the Rue Morgue’ aloud one classmate read Orangutan
But with emphasis on the ‘OTANG’. So she said Orang…….OTANG! And whenever we were reading and that word came up we would always say Orang…….OTANG. Ah, it was great.
But the true meme for our class is one blissfully useful word: ameliorate. A word that every student in my class knew backwards, forwards, and on their knuckles since the first week.
Allow me to explain. You see our Instructor Trent used a wonderful vocabulary that borrowed works from various generations and talked in a manner not unlike I imagine Plato did.
But one word he said a couple of times was ameliorate, and our class clung to it like and Orang….OTANG clings to a branch.
So yeah, amelioration was in the air that first week.
And next TIP Life I will have some amelioration photos for you all to see.
Outside of class, I made more friends in my RC group and we tried to do a movie night. However they couldn’t figure the sound system out so we just listened to the ‘acoustic edition’ of Big Hero 6.
That is all I remember for now, but next week on TIP Life we explore the weekend including a Lip-Sync battle, a prolonged dance, and a messy room.
Super special announcement is rescheduled for Friday, so sorry. Until then, enjoy!
Welcome to the first in a long line of Fav Fiv (or 4,3,2,1).
The title is pretty self explanatory but here I am writing this paragraph so it will be explained. Basically it is my Favorite 5 of somethings but if I have less than 5 then 4,3,2, or 1. Or more than 5, so the title would more accurately Favorites but I wanted a catchy rhyme so I shortened favorite and took off the e in Five. Fav Fiv begins now with my top 5 Marvel Movies.
5. Ant Man
This movie was amazing. It was not hyped up as much as other marvel movies, and featured a less well-known super hero. But all the cast worked perfectly together and created a fresh new story that renewed the ‘funny’ in the MCU. I especially liked the ‘bite-sized’ fight at the very end. It mixed suspense and comedy perfectly while poking fun at the ‘no-stakes’ criticism of Marvel movies. One bad thing that this and Guardians planted the seeds for is too much comedy that actually worsens the lack of stakes in Marvel Movies. But I’ll talk about this in detail soon.
4. Guardians of the Galaxy
Guardians has the same vibe of Ant Man in that it has a relatively unknown main slate of characters. Again the cast shined and the story was fresh. I thought the transition to infinity stones/ infinity war setup was very well done by hinting the plot out and not dumping too much information on watchers. Again though Guardians (and especially vol.2) cut the drama to a point of just a no-consequences comedy. This makes me worried for how the now serious Avengers conflict (plus Spiderman who has his own thing) is going to meet the slapstick Guardians of the Galaxy in a balanced Infinity War. But I reserve judgment until I have watched the movie. Overall though, great movie.
3. Iron Man
Perhaps a surprise to you, but hear me out. Iron Man is commonly ranked at spots 1 and 2 because it started them all and people were sentimentally attached. Don’t get me wrong, I loved Iron Man. But because of the weird order I watched the MCU movies in (Avengers, Captain America, Ultron, Ant Man, then Iron Man) I don’t feel the sentimentality and I think I view it as a movie and not as a feeling. I don’t really have a reason for it to be low, just for the other two to be higher!
2. Spider-Man: Homecoming
Hands down the best Spider Man movie. Marvel finally got their Spidey back and boy am I glad. After a soft reboot in Captain America: Civil War Tom Holland’s take on a web-slinger origin story is astoundingly good. I keep thinking that if I went over it critically I won’t like it, but I just love it. The only complaint I have is the anti-climactic ending but I feel like that fight just shows that Peter Parker isn’t a major player yet. Spider Man is THE BEST superhero and I felt like this movie finally did him justice. They incorporated Tony Stark brilliantly in a couple of ways. 1) Adding Tony as a fatherly figure gave the story more shape, 2) It showed us how much RDJ recording his voice can impact a movie and 3) it shifted Iron Man’s character in a vital way. It allowed a broken Iron Man after Civil War to become a father figure/ mentor that shifts him out of the crucial role he has been since the beginning. This, I think, is setting up more tragedy for Peter and everyone when Iron Man goes down for good in Infinity War. That’s just my theory but with the role Tony took in this movie it is becoming a distinct possibility. And don’t even get me started about the timeline.
And 1. Avengers
This may not surprise anyone, but Avengers is my favorite Marvel Movie. The culmination of all the previous setup is a great example of ‘the sum is bigger than the parts’. An epic fight, some epic lines, an epic setup for Infinity War, and an epic positioning of the Marvel Movies to continue.
Black Panther (2018)
Ant Man and Wasp (2018)
Infinity War and Unnamed other Avengers Movie (2018 and 2019 respectively)
Thor Ragnarok (2017)
Almost Made the List:
Doctor Strange (2016)
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
Did you agree with my ranking? You should, it’s the best. But if for some reason you didn’t, comment it down below! Also what should I review next? Marvel thoughts… etc.
Thanks for reading and as I screamed when Phil Coulson ‘died’:
Hey guys! I figured I should let you know that although Life and You is scheduled for today I just posted one on Sunday I figured I would give people time to reply(cough please reply in the comments it’s linked here plz thanks) and resume LAY next Tuesday.
So sorry no real post today but look forward to the premiere of the new series Fav Five(or 4,3,2,1) tomorrow. Also super special announcement might be pushed to Thursday, stay tuned!
BREAKING NEWS!!! A special announcement will be up Wednesday August 16! Check it out here and on The Nerd and His Brother!
Hello there you life and yoers!
Life and You, the postest with the mostest. Including anecdotes about my life and questions from viewers like you! Basically to get the info on the random happenings of my life as well as some..interesting questions this is your one stop shop!
And to clear up some confusion, Literally My Life is the Life segment in Life and You, after LML ends, there is still much more LAY. Acronyms are confusing, but stay R.A.A.T.L.S and everything should be F.R.E.E (guess the meanings of these in the comments!).
With that being said, let us travel now to the land of
So as you probably noticed I have not posted in a while. I have made sure my classwork load won’t be too extreme this year (not that I could reasonably find this out by a week of dumb activities) but I am now able to make my commitments for this semester.
So first, reasons why I might not post.
Unfortunately being forgetful has plagued me forever (Or has it? I can’t remember) but I believe I have the solution.
I will sit down at regular times to work on my plethora of posts.
And for LAY the everything but the life section can be written earlier too.
2.Thirsty for ideas
Now this reason is something I can do little to control because when you hit a creative block it really does feel like bedrock.
And yes I just made a Minecraft reference in 2017. Deal with it.
3.Working really hark on posts
As self indulgent this reason might sound I do put a lot of effort into my posts (especially reviews **coughspidermanhomecomingiscomingipromisecough**) and I might just not get a post out one day. I will still try to get every series post out on schedule but y’know it happens.
I can’t do much about this one sadly. I hope that Riley will notify you of my passing if this is the case. If not and you get a scheduled post about my upcoming firearms presentation at the Rowdy Loudly Pouty Coyote Bar and Insurance Provider you might want to start sending those flowers to my family. Because it goes without saying that something bad always happens at the Rowdy Loudly Pouty Coyote Bar and Insurance Provider. Heck, you need a thick redneck twang to even get the first half to rhyme.
If I die, Riley tells you, and THEN a scheduled post from me being all cheery and talking about my upcoming firearms presentation at the Rowdy Loudly Pouty Coyote Bar and Insurance Provider comes out I imagine things will be sad and flowers will be POURING IN. But oh well, I’m dead.
All this to say that my official posting schedule from August 12-December 12 is…
Monday: Random Post
Tuesday: Life and You
Wednesday: Fav Five(or 4 3 2 or 1)
Thursday: TIP Life (until it ends, TBD after that point)
Friday: 50/50 (maybe you will get a post, maybe you won’t!
Weekend: No promises
So yaya, post updates!
And as I mentioned before I started school a couple of days ago and this years seems to be going better than last year. Personally my schedules are fixed up and though we don’t have some teachers and a our band program is nonexistent, I am hopeful!
As I write this I lose hope by the second.
But I believe that is all for Literally my Life. If you made it down here comment #LML.
Done? Okay, come back up here from the comments because there is still a whole lot more.
Anyways my question from yesterLAY was basically ‘What are your thoughts on ticket scalpers?’.
See if you can make sense of what bittersweetlyirrevocable has to say:
i hate ticket scalpers, but i mean, who knows, perhaps a ticket scalper doesn’t know how else to make money because all of their money was on a plane to Tristan Da Cunha, but was mistaken because no planes fly to Tristan Da Cunha, and all of their money ended up in Pune, but say the ticket scalper was American and didn’t know that all of their money was in a random city in India, and when they got to Tristan Da Cunha miraculously, they discovered that they had lost all of their money. so the person somehow gets back to America and finds out One Direction is coming to their city, which completely sold out because I mean, One Direction. but the person got a ticket as a gift from a friend. as the person looks through twitter, the person realizes that a lot of obsessed fangirls were going to fly over to attend the concert, and the person thought, what better way to earn back my money other than selling a bunch of girls fake tickets and….
I was mainly talking about people who buy up all the tickets for an event and then sell them for more money. Y’know, LEGALLY.
These people are popular to hate on (much like Nickelback who’s music I’ve never had a problem with) but I think that these guys are doing everyone a favor.
They see money to be made and they make it. We shouldn’t hate people for being smart, right?
They are showing the managers and artists who put the tickets on sale that people are willing to pay much, MUCH more for those tickets. So in the end it is really Taylor Swift’s fault that scalpers get all that money. Artists leave money on the table, scalpers take it.
Ironically, I put Nickelback and scalpers together because they are both things love to hate, even though the one time scalpers don’t make any money is scalping tickets for a Nickelback concert.
But that’s just my opinion so feel free to trash my haircut in the comments like level-headed humans.
But seriously thank you bittersweetlyirrevocable for taking the time to pen that incriminating comment.
My question today is one I want answered kinda seriously. So poll time!
This reflects the content I make so thanks for completing it.
Ah, the end of the post. Time to promote other posts all feeding into one giant post-hole that adds to my power every day!
Click the carnival ADMIT ONE ticket for the last LAYs. Click the golden ticket for my last post. And make sure to click the reel of tickets for all of my posts. Every single one!
So that ends another Life and You, and as I want to say when I post twice in one day and then stop for 4 days:
Hello there you prolonged awkward eye contact. This post is going to basically just be me rambling about my piano stuff, so if you aren’t interested in that stuff, don’t bother continuing.
As I am writing this, I have just sent Jamie a text about possibly separating E-Quality into two separate albums, a piano album and a regular one. Jamie agrees, so we might do that, but before we decide, you get to decide!
Before you vote though, here are some pros and cons.
1. People who only want to hear either one or the other get to choose.
2. It’s a little bit easier to structure when they are separated.
3. We can spread them out over more time, and spend more time perfecting them before releasing them. Plus you will get more songs than a grouped album.
1. We lose the power of the almighty musical interlude on the vocal album.
2. It will take a lot more time to finish the projects than if they were grouped together.
3. We could possibly lose our listeners that don’t exist yet if they aren’t a fan of the first to be released. They would probably avoid the second album if they didn’t like the first one.
That’s all of the pros and cons I can think of right now.
Please vote on this poll 😀
Thank you for voting 😀
If separated, these are the album tracks made so far.
Flower Flow *
Unnamed Song #1 **
A Midsummer’s Ice Stream **
Jazz Spiderman **
Heavy Eyelids *
Alone All Along
Paper Flies *
* means they are finished, but will be edited. ** means they are not done being written.
As you can see, neither of these lists make it to album length, so it will be a while until we can call the separate “albums”, albums.
That’s all I can think to put into this post right now, so I’ll just thank you for reading and voting and be on my merry way.
