At this year's Super Bowl, the Black Eyed Peas performed, and it was spectacular. They played a medley of all of their best songs, which is to say, they played all of their songs. This was their year. Not only did people want them to perform at the Super Bowl, but when it was finally announced, everyone understood why and really just fucking loved it.
Their best accomplishment, though, is probably their 2011 hit that is definitely a real thing, "As Long as We're Partyin'." They played it at the Super Bowl, at the Oscars and anywhere you can play songs. Except of course on a webcam on YouTube, so I thought I would help them out. Here is my cover of my favorite Black Eyed Peas song that totally exists, "As Long as We're Partyin'." Watch it with the annotations on for the full experience.
To best illustrate my point, here's a gif of a scene from the Star Wars 'Darth Senile' Edition 2032 BluRay.
Despite creating fake video games just so I can give tutorials on them, I wouldn't necessarily call myself a "gamer." I mean, I like video games. I'm great at them, I swear, why don't you come over here and prove that I'm not, but I just don't play them that often. I always feel like I have better things to do, like make fake video games and give tutorials on them.
Then I heard about a game called Minecraft. The game takes our current and seemingly never-ending obsession with zombies and it combines that with the glamour of building stuff. It is called a "sandbox" game and it gives you the freedom to build statues or a working computer or a house fire. You can even build a playable version of the game you're playing within the game you're playing, because Minecraft is the Inception of video games. Speaking of dreams, when I bought Minecraft I played it for 24 straight hours. I ate, maybe, I don't remember, but for 24 hours I played Minecraft. Then I fell asleep, woke up and played Minecraft for another 24 hours. For the sake of my mind, body and soul, I have not played it since, mostly.
But if Minecraft didn't consume and destroy two days of my life, I could have gone into multiplayer mode and helped make some amazing things with the Minecraft community. Like the Earth:
So, yeah, basically I thought that was an appropriate visual for a lot of things that happened this year, and a lot of things that are still happening. People from all over the world, connected through the Internet, building up a new world around them, together. That's the only reason I picked this game, actually, to trick you into hearing some of my hippie bullshit. So, ha ha, I guess. Ya got tricked. This game came out in 2009.
One thing the Internet loves (aside from more cats forever) is LOLing out loud and ROFLing its fucking ass off at other people's failures. People getting hurt.
Earlier this year, reporter Serene Branson started a sentence. Then something happened and she finished her sentence, but not with human words. Watch below.
Within minutes, two things happened. An ambulance was called, and the video went viral thanks to the hilarious word vomit spewing from blondie's gob. There was concern she had a stroke on air, but also lulz at the scared gibbering lady. No need to wait a day to see if she's okay you can already see she's not. It wasn't just some on-air flub where the reporter got marble-mouthed or nervous. Something was wrong, and you could tell by the look of terror in Serene's eyes. Ironic name, I suppose.
As it turns out, Branson suffered from a bad migraine, and that's why her words weren't words. So, yeah, I guess laugh it up because she didn't have a stroke, but also why? I mean, objectively, yeah, the video is pretty funny, because, seriously, those aren't words. But this woman went through a real ordeal on the air, and maybe instead of IMMEDIATELY laughing at the hilarious loser for failing, we could be a nice little Internet community and not be insensitive dicks about it. As we all know, insensitive dicks are useless because nothing can get them to cum.
