Hello Internet 🙂

It’s been awhile since my last post so I figured I had to make this a good one 😉

Warning: l understand this Post might be a bit odd if you aren’t a Youtube watcher, But even so, I hope you enjoy it and maybe give it a chance and check out Shaycarl 🙂

For the past year and a bit I have been a fan of ShayCarl, first noticing him in Olgakay’s (Who I happen to know and adore) “Not everyone get’s Naked the same way” Video which was made during the Toronto Canada Youtube gathering in August 2008…. Check it out Below

Shay is a very unique Youtuber (Regular Youtube Poster)  He’s random, outspoken and funny and has an adorable family of three kids with his wife Kaitilette. Most commendable is that he isn’t afraid to be on camera despite his weight, he does mention it here and there but generally you can see that he is very comfortable in his skin. He has dedicated his time (and his family’s) to the daily Vlogs (Video Logs) hes been doing since his Birthday this year. For 213 days (as of this post, he plans to go for a whole year) the Internet has seen Shay live his life with his family, Moving from their home in Idaho to Venice Beach, Los Angeles to be closer to Shay’s new job/project The Station.  Which in itself is a phenomenon as it is the first collaborative comedy sketch channel to come up on YouTube containing some of its most famous celebrities like LisaNova, DaveDays, Shaycarl, Philip Defranco, KassemG, Shane Dawson, and more. This post is about Shay tho so I’ll move on. If you like random silly sometimes crude comedy tho you should go check out The Station  (There’s also one of their Video’s Below)

Shay, Katielette and their kids, whose names we barely hear for their privacy (they go by BabyTard, their youngest daughter who turned 2 this year, PrincessTard, their middle child, and SonTard, who is the oldest at I think 7-9 years old) are probably the sweetest family I’ve ever seen. If you wondering about the Tard part of things it comes from Shaytard, because Shay once wore a red Unitard for a Superbowl Sketch for his Main channel, After that the name just stuck.

I feel its been a privilege to be able to have a peek at someone’s life the way Shay share’s his with his audience. We’ve seen Days at the Beach, Birthday’s and Surprise parties, Behind the scene’s of The Station, Bbq’s with friends, Tire swing hunting, Baby tickling and loads more random family moments that I know personally most families don’t get to enjoy. So many homes are different or broken these days and its really great to see a family, happy and loving and real.

Their efforts don’t go unrewarded either as Shay has for a long while now been a YouTube Partner, earning money through Google adsense for his video views. I say this proudly not disparagingly because only handfuls of people are able to actually make a supportable living off of YouTube and I feel that they greatly deserve it. Since I first started watching Shay his daily veiws have more then tripled, obviously the Internet Loves Shay, and he loves them back. It takes alot of energy and dedication to wake up everyday, film your life, edit/render/upload it for a 3-5 hours (if your lucky) and do all the work that follows. I just hope that Shay knows his efforts aren’t unappreciated. While I haven’t been able to watch every day I have seen at least 80% and have shared quite a few of the video’s with friends who enjoyed them as well.

For me, It’s been something random for me to watch and enjoy. (Afterall, my Blog is called Pursuing Randomness) Not every video is fantastic, or long (except he once made a video 23 minutes long just to make a point 😛 ) but for the most part, its all been brilliant and worth my time and I really hope to see Shay go places with his career.

If you feel at all intrigued by any of this, please go check out Shay’s channels (Links Below) and show him some love.

Disclamer: I don’t know Shay personally aside from watching his video’s and some random chatting on blogtv/twitter. I’m supporting him as a fan in this post and nothing more. I Link the following video’s with Love, no infringement intended.

Now for the fun part, Some Video’s 😀

OlgaKay’s ~ Not Everyone gets naked the same Way: (First Video I saw Shay in)

Holy Blogpost Batman!

*Wave*

Hello Internet…

It’s been awhile, anyone miss me? 😉 I know I have a couple hundred emails awaiting me today (haven’t checked the blogmail in a few weeks lol) mostly queries and comments, but a few people were wondering what happened to me, and I’ll put it all into one word for ya: Job, lol.

On that note…I suppose this is due….

That’s right folks…..

A Boxxy Update:

There are alot of you STILL asking about Boxxy, and I don’t blame you, she’s like a drug, and as of this moment over 1200 people on her twitter are using her 😉 She’s been updating alot lately, pondering whether it was safe to come out yet lol, even begging for followers by saying ‘920, no one loves me’ and that was 2 days ago…I hope she doesn’t, and yet strangely…I do! You guys like reading about her and I like posting about her, its a Win Win 😛 What do you guys think? Comments Below please..

For those that don’t know who Boxxy is, here’s one of her video’s (the one that made her the most famous, 1 million hits in 2 days on youtube) She is what is called a Internet Meme, which is basically just a random video or picture (Like rickrolling if you know what that is :P) that for some reason everyone catches on to and shares with everyone else, usually because its strange or incredible, in this case…well its self explanitory, for More Info click the Boxxy link in my Cloud to the left (its kinda compelling stuff, she was getting stalked! lol) :

And for those you of you that have better things to do than watch a video about a Hyper 16 year old youtube sensation….I have 2 video’s for you 🙂

A teaser trailer of the upcoming Cleavland Show (Which I happily rambled about way back in October!)

It premiers September 27th on Fox ofcourse, Don’t miss it! (Seth McFarlane Ftw)

And…It might seem to soon but here’s a Hilarious Clip from the Brilliant guys @ Mediocre Films (Check em out!)…Micheal Jackson Sock Puppet Theatre:

As a courtesy to those who might be offended, here is the Sidebar from Mediocre Films:

READ ME: Yes, I know it’s “too soon” for jokes about MJ. I was a big MJ fan (especially the Jackson 5), and the media made fun of Michael for years while he was alive, so frankly I’d find it hypocritical to stop spoofing (and therefore celebrating) his truly odd lifestyle now. Besides, we all agree there was no other man in pop music as talented as he was — no one disputes his accomplishments! So sit back and enjoy the oddities that made up his life. And don’t EVER abuse your children. Cuz look what happens when you do.

My favorite comment was from Westerngun: “if you cant make fun of everything, don’t make fun of anything.”

If you’re a subscriber to my channel, I’m glad to have you here. I’m going to keep doing what I think is funny. If you’re leaving, that’s okay too, we just don’t have the same sense of humor. One thing is for sure: There will be more episodes of Celebrity Sock Puppet Theatre, whenever there are interesting tabloid stories about stars.

That’s all for today! Comments Below pretty please 🙂

It’s brilliant, its musical, its the largest and first online collabritive orchestra! User’s entered by submitting a video performance of a new piece written for the occasion by the renowned Chinese composer Tan Dun.
Unfortunatly I’m apparently slow and there is only one day left of voting, but you can still go here and vote for who you think should be part of youtube and internet history. The winners will all be flown to New York to preform at Carnagie Hall in April.

Go Vote, there are some very amazing talents out there!

Peace!



Elevator: Youtube Gold

Recently I’ve come across a channel on Youtube that just cracks me up, The Elevator Show

It truly is pure gold, they just provide such random video’s that can only be summed up perfectly by its channel description:

Ahhh, the elevator, a place to spend ninety seconds standing uncomfortably close to whoever enters the car. Watch as these office workers deal with people and situations that will make you take the stairs forever. Experience the series that begs the question, “Where do you get off?”

Follow the adventures of Harold, Chris, Intern Jane, Jacob, Alicia, Paul, Sharon, Mr. Grant, Lily, Death, the pirates, the ninjas, and one very sensitive serial killer. Get some canned goods and prepare to rock!

I highly recommend this channel if your bored and want a bit of randomness to brighten your day 😉

Peace 😉 Xo

Random note: I haven’t posted in awhile due to relocating, for those that were wondering..

*Thanks to Aeria and Jacoz for the nice enquiring emails :)*



Quick Boxxy Update

If you missed the chance to see them before Boxxy’s video’s are back up on her youtube account… Her twitter hasnt been updated and I havent gotten any wind of anything new as of yet but I thought for those that didnt get to see her video’s before her account got hacked that you’d like to know that 🙂 I think in an attempt to remedy the situation the hackers have decided to put her video’s back and leave her be, or Boxxy herself has put them back up. There’s been a few more random posted on her account over the past few days, one of a guy named Chad (that was so stereotypical im not even gonna touch it) and another apology/”we didnt go that far” video from CBCR. But ofcourse those have been replaced with Boxxy’s Video’s now.

Peace Kitties! Xo



BoxxyBabee is No more?

Filed under: Youtube-ness | Tags: , , , , , ,

Well folks, It seems that its all over, Boxxybabee is no longer, or atleast according to her twitter..

bnm

I find this rather amusing cause just a day ago her twitter warned of a new video soon, and there is, but its apparently not by her:

The info for the video is as follows:

This is an official message to Boxxy and Boxxy-fans everywhere that Boxxy will no longer be making an appearance on the Internet.
Note: We do not want her life ruined. Some people, namely Anonymous, may try to hunt her down in real life in the form of a raid. We do not want this to happen.
That is all.
-CBCR and CBCR Leader, Eyrev

So yea…apparently this CBCR group , which stands for Center for Boxxy Control and Restriction (LMAO) has got into her Youtube account, deleted her other video’s and has put up this new warning video.

This whole thing is hilariously out of control, honestly I think its a stunt but whatever its still funny. Boxxy’s fame has spread around the net, one person showed another and another and eventually now anyone that is a youtube veiwer knows about her.  All started over a online game! I’ve got some experience with game related drama but this take’s the cake.  The lengths some poeple will go!

Albeit Amusing and Strange I still wonder what’s next if anything at all! lol.

Comment below please, what do you think of these people hacking into Boxxy’s Youtube account?

Peace Xo



BoxxyBabee’s Story Revealed
January 17, 2009, 7:33 pm
Filed under: Youtube-ness | Tags: , , , , , ,

I found it. The answer to all your questions about BoxxyBabee. A Blog went up today by Byzantinist who has managed to gather the whole story together, quite well I might add.  To read the whole thing please click here.

The Basic run down is that she played the game Gaia online, she was a active poster for awhile back in 2006 to a forum called 7chan, quit for awhile and then came back in 2007 posted like a maniac for a week or so, put up a few Youtube shoutouts in January 2008 and then ofcourse dissapeared again until this past December 27th, when the video ‘FOAR 4DD1 FRUM BOXXY’ was posted on i-am-bored.com. This was spotted by someone at 7chan, who embedded the video at the top of the random chat board,  the rival forum 4chan put the video up as well with the ‘Expert’ level afforded to those who would withstand the entire video without wanting to “tear out their hair or hurt small animals”. Posters saw this as either ‘the most insane display we’ve ever seen on youtube’ or ‘the cutest girl you’ve ever seen’. This very event was what started Boxxy’s Fame. Just by Posting a Random rant video she had started a war, one of which this blogger can’t believe could actually be happening over this girl.  People have fought to cripple each other and their game (they crashed the server) because of her. But yea once again, Please go over to Byzantinist’s Blog to check it out. (Link above)

Still no actual confirmation either way of who she is or where she comes from but I guess that’s the beauty of the Internet.

Just thought I’d update you all with what I found. I’ve been getting lots of emails and comments from various veiwers about Boxxy and I aim to please with my content. If there’s anything else you’d all like to read about etc Im happy to do the research 😉 so please comment below and let me know!

Peace XoX
