Let’s all Respect Rebecca Black!

So i’m sure by now you have seen Rebecca Black’s video for the song Friday. It is not the best song on the planet, but it has brought laughter to millions of people. WIN. What bothers me about this isn’t the laughter, but the hateful comments. Imagine if that awkward video you made at the beginning of high school was publicly broadcast all over the internet and millions of people watched it. I had some good ones in my day ahah. Overall though, I’m sure we’ve all had an experience with hate towards us. In high school someone left some cruel messages on my answering machine one day and i’ll be honest. It didn’t feel good. I’ve moved past that incident and forgiven those people, but I can’t imagine experiencing that on the scale that Rebecca Black has to deal with. She gets my major admiration. Plus, if she hadn’t made this song, then this awesome band Tucker wouldn’t have made their awesome acoustic cover! LOVE IT!

In all seriousness though, let’s all show some compassion. I think we should all grow up… so Rebecca has the chance to.

BE LOVE.

Welcome to Nerdfighting

What is a Nerdfighter?

Quite possibly you! Chances are, if you are reading this blog you are a nerdfighter (though you may not know it yet).

A nerdfighter is a person who, instead of being made of out bones and organs like regular people, is made out of awesome. They try to decrease world-suck.

This whole thing was started by two brothers, John and Hank Green. They have a youtube channel called vlogbrothers. John is an author (one of my favorites! he wrote Will Grayson, Will Grayson and Paper Towns to name a couple) and Hank is an eco-blogger turned internet musician.

They’ve spawned an entire internet community and some very cool real-life initiatives. For example, The Uncultured Project was started by a guy named Shawn who quit grad school and took his savings to try and end poverty. Mucho props to him. Hank started his own record label for YouTube musician, DFTBA Records.

There are all sorts of nerdfighters out there. From the large Dr.Who community (I should really watch at least one episode since so many people are so obsessed with this), to the Harry Potter nerds (Wooo!), to gleeks (also wooo!), to people that really like videogames (not so much for me but to each his own).

They have a video explaining all this…

Now that we’ve defined things here are some of my favorite videos to get you started.

’cause you took the air i’m breathing

you stole my heart,

And I don’t know what happened but

we fell apart.

By now everyone has probably seen the kid that covered Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” for his school talent show. The latest internet meme.

I was on his youtube page yesterday listening to his original song “Broken Heart” and man, I don’t know what some girl did to him but this sixth grader is intense. I don’t know if he understand what he’s singing about but I hope not. Grade six is too young for that level of relationship trauma, in my opinion. He is amazing nonetheless. A very talented young man.
