The greatest movie of all time 2

  June 8th, 2012

I’m extremely excited about this movie! The greatest movie of all time’s sequel. By now you all should know that I am talking about the sequel to Anchorman.  Ron Burgandy, Brick Tamland, Brian Fantana, and Champ Kind are back again to bring an unbelievable amount of laughs and joy. I think it’s awesome how these guys careers have really been so big after the first Anchorman. Steve Carrell has been in several movies, and continued to create laughs in the Office. Will Ferrell’s career was already big, Paul Rudd’s career has exploded, and David Koechner has been in a couple things but is always hilarious. I am really hoping Jack Black makes another cameo appearance, I loved when he got hit in the face with a burrito and wrecked his bike. Then kicked Baxter off the bridge. It’s a great scene. Anyways here is the teaser for Anchorman 2 I hope your as excited about  Anchorman 2 as I am. Enjoy the trailer. Thanks FunnyorDie.com for the trailer.

 

 



White Boy Problems….. or does everyone have these problems?

  June 8th, 2012

This video killed me. “My two day shipping took three days”  this is a serious problem with our letter carriers in today’s society, they are never on time, you would think that it would suffice as a breach of contract and you would be able to get it delivered for free.  The video is titled White Boy Problems, but these are legitimate problems for everyone I would think? “I hate it when they don’t put enough syrup in my vanilla latte” Starbucks does this too me all the time! The worst! Anyways I am in favor of them re-titling this video to the everyone’s problems. Obviously, I’m joking. This video is really hilarious though, I would like to throw a shout out to badweatherfilm for the making of and posting of the video. I found the video on the same multimedia hub I find everything else. Youtube. Well anyways I hope you enjoy the video.

Big Man (Bob Sapp) vs much smaller man (Mirko Cro Cop)

  June 6th, 2012

This must have been one of the first full fights I ever watched. I found this fight on Youtube ages ago. I have been showing my friends this video probably since 9th grade (I’m a Junior in college now, you do the math) I really don’t want to give the video away, because for those of you who haven’t seen it I really want you to enjoy it as much as I did the first time I saw it. Bob Sapp is a mountain of a man, I hope I can get that massive one day. If any of you have ever seen the newest version of “The Longest Yard” then you will probably appreciate this video even more. Bob Sapp played a minor role in the film. I would like to thank Dale127 for the post on Youtube. So without accidentally spoiling this video any more here it is. Enjoy!

 



Eric Kelly Wall Street Boxing Coach

  June 4th, 2012

When I first saw this video I laughed uncontrollably. I found it even more appealing because my best friend just got a job on Wall Street, he is much more athletic than the guys in this gym, but I have had a great time giving him crap about seeing him in the gym during this video. The reason why this video just kills me though is because Eric Kelly is an absolutely ruthless coach. A lot of people say that my offensive line coach is tough, but this guy has zero patients for these guys in his gym. At least he is still getting to do what he loves, which is coach boxing. But in all honesty Eric Kelly is a lucky guy, he might not be to excited about all of his trainees, but I can’t blame him too much those guys were unathletic to say the least. Take a look at the video, I guarantee your going to like it. I would also like to mention that I found the video on Break.com posted by Chat Stew. Thanks Stew I really enjoyed the video, also great job with the audio to, I loved the intro song.

 



QVC Bloopers Video

  May 19th, 2012

The shopping channel is constantly running, and is always live. It can lead to some problems, obviously. In this video it shows a couple of the slip ups from the QVC. I stumbled upon this video, while I was looking at other bloopers and I thought that this one had some pretty funny parts to it. Personally I would hate to be on live tv all the time selling things. I feel like the way all of these people approach the situations is hilarious. It’s there job to play it off, but they don’t do a great job. “Now it’s locked in place” hahaha i don’t want to spoil this, but it was not locked in place. The video was posted by redsox92292 on Youtube.com  Hopefully you all enjoy the video as much as I did.

 

 



Rampage Jackson

  May 18th, 2012

I’m a big UFC fan, I have been watching it since I was a little kid. I remember watching Rampage Jackson fight in Pride early in his career and I was always amazed at how strong and explosive he was. In his prime he was a man among boys in the ring. The one thing that I’m happy about is that I will never have to take a punch from him.  That dude is crazy. But has always been one of my favorite fighters to watch, because every time I know he is going to go out and put on a great fight. You have to focus the whole time because I swear if you look away for a second he is going to powerbomb someone or get a crazy instant knock out. This is a video that 2crazynate on posted on youtube it’s a highlight film of Rampage’s knock outs, or wins in Pride and UFC. I still can’t believe how vicious Pride used to be with allowing kicks and knees to the face when on the ground. I am really glad that UFC changed that rule. I also think that the change has really helped the sport, because most people don’t want to see someone get kicked in the face on the ground, so it made it more (i know this is the wrong phrase but bear with me) “Family oriented” so people could watch the sport without cringing the whole time. Well anyways enjoy the highlights of Rampage.

 



LEEROY JENKINS

  May 18th, 2012

I hope most of you who read this have more of a life than me. Because I have literally been in the the position where “Leeroy Jenkins” has ruined my plan. Although I have never been a big W.O.W. player, I was a big Halo 2 player. I would always be trying to think of/execute plans. “Leeroy Jenkins” was the worst, the guy that never would go with the group and kept foiling the plan. I gotta admit that it was hilarious though. I also have to admit that I was also “Leeroy” several times. One heck of a video. It’s ME LEEROY JENKINS!

 



Assignment Week 6

  May 14th, 2012

The ethical codes that I think to the  strongest from http://www.poynter.org/archived/about-poynter/20209/ethics-guidelines-for-poynter-publishing/ written by Bill Mitchell talks about interdependence, “We acknowledge our interdependence with various entities and individuals for such resources as money (details in the FAQ), participation in our courses and programs, and material for our print and online publications.” This is very important to recognize interdependence because more often than not, people are repeating ideas, or stuff that they have seen, It is very important go give credit where credit is due, and to recognize what was taking from somewhere else. Another ethical code that I found to be very important was obvious, but i think a lot of people today struggle with this concept but to just be honest. From http://www.ojr.org/ojr/wiki/ethics/ by Robert Niles ” be honest with your readers and transparent about your work. If people wonder for a moment about your honesty or your motives, you’ve lost credibility with them. Don’t let them do that. Answer those questions even before readers ask.” I think that this is a huge problem today in journalism, especially when writing about celebrities or famous people. I think that they will through accusations out there and hope their right  instead of getting down to the knitty gritty and finding out the truth for themselves. So far in my blogging career I haven’t ran into too many ethical problems I don’t think, but it could be a real problem if I was posting videos and not saying where they were from or linking the videos to the original site I got them from. But still I find it very important to be honest when I am writing, I’m writing about my true opinions and things that I actually am feeling or doing.
The way that I would handle someone stealing my blog posts and my writing would be to first go on their blog and confront them about it in a professional manner, and if that didn’t work I would notify ethicsalert@poynter.org. and if that didn’t work I would be forced to take the next appropriate steps to take legal action against the person stealing my posts. The ethical issues that arise from this situation would be plagiarism because they would be stealing my ideas and my writing, along with honesty, the person stealing my original ideas and posting them as their own is just lying to everyone by making people think that they the ideas belong to the 2nd poster.
I think that the problem with people who are blurting out information that are no more than rumors is ok, but also needs to be in check and people need to be careful with what they say. I am a strong believer of free speech and people have the right to express their opinions and their thoughts about something. But I think that there is a difference between free speech and slander. Some people just go to far, I think this is especially true when people are being accused of something in court, people are innocent until proven guilty but too often people will jump to conclusions and make the mistake of taking little bits and pieces about something that they hear and use it to jump to a uninformed or false conclusion. It is impossible to make sure that every single thing that people say is going to be true, which is why people can’t be required to only tweet, or post true information. People deserve to talk about their thoughts and their beliefs which is why I think that they should be allowed to say whatever they want, we as readers need to do our research and shouldn’t take everything we read to heart.



The Landlord

  May 14th, 2012

I have probably seen this video 20 times, and everytime I have laughed hysterically at it. This is a skit that comes from funnyordie.com with Will Ferrell (the renter) and his very young daughter (the landlord). The skit has his daughter trying to collect rent from the renter and the young girl can hardly talk but uses some hilarious profanity. I really enjoy this hopefully you will to. The Landlord
