Ink

Ink

    My palms were sweating profusely, dripping down my left hand and smearing the navy blue ink on the clean sheet of paper. I read the words over and over in my mind until they festered into a dull rhythm, filling my head where there’d otherwise […]

The Puppetmaster

The Puppetmaster

The puppetmaster waited. Fragile humans, unaware of what they were fated. Cold silence and empty darkness, Life crumbling away, becoming less. Neither living nor dead, With a needle and thread. Stitching the invisible strings. To the shattered world humanity clings. Tugging on the corpse’s ties, […]

Special Effects Makeup Tutorial

Special Effects Makeup Tutorial

    This is it. The blog you’ve all been waiting for. The blog where I show you how to look dead beyond belief, or at least maimed. I’m very proud of this video – and myself – because IT TOOK SO LONG FOR IT TO PROCESS […]

The Worst (or Best) of YouTube

The Worst (or Best) of YouTube

“Dr. Jean’s Banana Dance (aka The Guacamole Song)”     You’ve probably at least seen the 20 second Guacamole clip, but the full thing is a masterpiece. Why is she singing about foods? What’s the background supposed to be? I’m not sure but she’s extremely enthusiastic about […]

Review: <em>Steve Jobs, </em>an Unflinching Look at the Man Behind the Empire

Review: Steve Jobs, an Unflinching Look at the Man Behind the Empire

    It’s 1984 — the camera pans across an empty room filled with dozens of empty red chairs. Backstage, people are running around; Steve Jobs (Michael Fassbender) and Steve Wozniak (Seth Rogen) are arguing, and—a stark contrast to the backstage chaos— a mother and daughter are […]

How to Get “Spoopy”

How to Get “Spoopy”

Back atcha this week with an exciting topic: Spoopy. Season.     You’ve seen it: PSLs are back, Halloween decorations are in stores, and that means it’s time to bring out my favorite meme of the year: Spoopy.     To help you achieve maximum spoop this year, I’ve […]

The Rest of the Year in Films

The Rest of the Year in Films

    For me, fall means pumpkins and beautiful weather and movies. And since I love movies (and beautiful weather and pumpkins), it’s no surprise that fall is my favorite season. For all you like-minded movie-lovers out there, here are ten films I think you should watch […]

Meredith in New Orleans

Meredith in New Orleans

    Hello all! I’m Meredith, the self-titled resident Youtube pro. As some of you may know, I used to have a beauty channel which ended halfway through sophomore year (re-watching videos of my freshman self is embarrassingly nostalgic), and sometimes I find myself missing it. Ta […]

Glass Animals – “Love Lockdown”

Glass Animals – “Love Lockdown”

    Despite Run D.M.C. and Aerosmith’s 1986 “Walk This Way” collaboration, there are many that believe there can never be a perfect marriage between rock and hip-hop. Admittedly, there is limited overlap in not only style, but fan base as well. But as Bob Dylan once […]
