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.
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.
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!
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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
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
I love to play video games. I have been playing them since I was a kid. About 5 years ago I played a new game on xbox 360 called Bioshock. I immersed myself for hours in the virtual world of “Rapture” underwater city where the game took place. Since then I played Bioshock 2 and also loved it. But since beating Bioshock 2 and hearing about Bioshock Infinite, the third game in the series I have been anxioulsy waiting for news, and been frequenting the blogs, checking to hear about new updates and new content that would be part of the game. Today on irrationalgames.com (http://irrationalgames.com/insider/a-message-from-ken-levine/comment-page-1/#comment-34956) Ken Levine announced that the games release date would be pushed back to February 2013. The game was originally supposed to come out in 2012 but they want to make it perfect so the had to push it back. Here is what I had to contribute “I have to admit this is a bummer, but only because it feels like I have already waited for a while for this game. I personally would much rather play the game at a later date, than play a game that’s not perfect. I can’t wait until this game comes out next year! I know you guys are going to do a great job and make this game of the year.”
The Seattle Supersonics, my one time team. Now known as the Oklahoma City Thunder. I hate them with a passion. They gave OKC my Supersonics, a tragedy for every Sonics fan to say the least. I have been Following the blog for a while now I posted on ChunkStyle23 (http://blog.supersonicsoul.com/) another huge Sonics fan blogging about how our city was screwed by David Stern and the rest of the league in the transition from the Sonics to the Thunder. In the post I commented on, Kelley was talking about the documentary “Sonicsgate, Requiem for a team”. I was really understood where his anger was coming from, as a fan there is no worse thing than losing your team. I wrote “I still can’t believe that we lost our team to OKC. I am in the same boat you are, watching Sonicsgate is such a bummer. I just want my team back. I love the painting by the way. BOOOOO Stern. “ I am still waiting for the comment to be published.
My third post was on the Seattle Times Sports Blog, ran by Mason Kelley. I frequently go back to this to look at whats going on at my high school. I was shocked to read the story of Josh Dickerson. He is a Junior who was diagnosed with terminal cancer and supposedly has six months to live, instead of getting treatment he wanted to play as much baseball as he could. They are doing a benefit for him to help him and his family get to go to Hawaii as one of the last things he wants to do during his life. This story Of this kid is abosolutly amazing and incredibly heart wrenching. (http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/highschoolsportsblog/) I said “I think that this is going to be awesome. I hope it’s a huge success. After reading the story of this kid, I was very proud to be associated with him as a current alumni of O’Dea. Everyone come out and help get him to Hawaii. The Story of this Josh is amazing and it really moved me. Help him get to Hawaii.”
I don’t cook too much, but when I do I usually do a pretty good job. But since the football team supplies me with almost every, I don’t need to cook very often. When I am looking for something to cook, or some sort of recipe I like to the easy cooking blog to find easy, fast recipes. The other day I stumbled upon this dish called Hakka Noodles and I gave it a try last weekend. The noodles were great. I really enjoyed them. I left a comment on http://easycooking-blog.blogspot.com/2010/01/chicken-hakka-noodles.html?showComment=1336595646900#c5286516558641071845 that said “I made the chicken Hakka noodles and really loved them. It was very quick and not difficult to make at all. I will definitely be using this recipe again. I must say that this is one of my favorite food blogs, and is constantly giving me good ideas, and solid recipes. Keep up the good work and Thank You!”
The last blog that I commented on was the Autoblog.com At a recent car show in Las Vegas, they found a concept for a review mirror to have a android screen in it, and run the android programs on your rearview mirror. The blog was written by Zach Bowman at (www.autoblog.com/2012/01/19/android-integration-comes-to-your-cars-mirror-w-video?ncid=dynaldwbauto00000001), and both him and I thought that this would be a fairly dangerous piece of technology. But if done properly could be a very cool and useful addition of technology into a car. I responded to him by saying “I think that this is could be a very useful piece of technology if done the right way. I am definitely going to have to agree with Zach here in saying that it might not be the best idea ever to put the touch screen in the rear view mirror, I would think that if they could reinvent the steering wheel to have the android system built into the steering wheel it could be a great way to go about it if done properly.”
The reason I say that is because everytime I feel the urge to show someone one of this guys videos it nearly makes me sick. In this specific video he eats an entire jar of wasabi in a minute. I’m not sure how this guy does what he does, I would think this is impossible but he actually is amazing. I can hardly have a pea size of wasabi. I saw him eat a whole can of chewing tabacco once. If you want watch this, but if you have a weak stomach please refrain. Here You go.
…. I needed more action movies, until I saw that the Expendables 2 were going to come out. I watched the first Expendables and loved it. Not because it was a great movie or good script, but because there was never more than 5 minutes in the movie when something wasn’t exploding or being shot in the face. Not to mention that they just threw all the best action stars of all time into one glorious explosion of a film. And I am pretty excited that Chuck Norris demanded to be in the cast and while everyone was scared speechless he filmed himself into the Expendables 2. Enjoy the trailer.
The Merriam-Webster definition of a Journalist is “a person engaged in journalism; especially: a writer or editor for a news medium b: a writer who aims at a mass audience”. I believe that by this definition Bloggers are definitely journalists. The reason that I think this is true is because any website can act as a news medium, and it is being able to be seen by a large audience. Although bloggers are often speaking about their opinions and their own views, they are still in a way writing for their own journal. Most people would just consider people who write for news, or magazines etc. to be journalists because of the way that they define a news medium. But I personally think that those people who do that should just be considered professional journalists. While bloggers like myself and classmates should be considered amateur journalists. I think that the major difference is that people like me are not getting paid. It’s a difference of being amateur and professional.
This is a video of Ken Sanders on talking about gun control in New York City. He gets a bunch of prank calls. I cry laughing every time I watch it. If you don’t think this is funny then, I am simply at a loss. ENJOY!
