YouTube is excited to launch its first ever live streaming event that will celebrate the site’s vast user communities; everyone from bedroom vloggers, budding creatives and underground athletes, to world-famous musicians, (Akon, Katy Perry…) comedians, artists and more (John Chu & ACDC)
Part concert, part variety show and part party, YouTube Live will bring together some of the amazing videos and unforgettable individuals that have contributed towards making the site what it is today. Expect to see Internet-born stars like Soulja Boy Tell’em, Esmee Denters, and “Canon Rock” virtuoso Funtwo . There will also be a global b-boy showcase featuring dancers from the movie Planet B-boy, Discovery Channel’s MythBusters and lots more..In addition, the “Vlog Squad,” a group of long-time YouTube community members, will offer exclusive, behind-the-scenes access from different areas of the venue; WilliamSledd, Michael Buckley (What the Buck), LisaNova, and TayZonday have already been named as part of this ace reporting team.

Personally, Im really excited for this! Its truly a mark on Internet History, to have so many people come together for one event, for millions to enjoy from their comfy computer chairs etc 😉

I’ll be posting more about this as it gets closer so be prepared for more Youtube related rambles 😛

And on that note, Here’s What the Buck’s rundown of the event 😉

Stay tuned! *wave*

Another Jon Chu Project has risen 😉 (The man behind the ACDC Crew vs. MMCru Dance off, See earlier post for more Info 🙂 )

From the Video Description:

This is the FIRST EVER OFFICIAL ELECTION DANCE OFF to determine the age old question: who are the better dancers, the REPUBLICANS or the DEMOCRATS…or as we like to call them,THE OBAMANATORS VS THE MCCAINIACS.Choose your party, support your candidate and upload your own crazy dance video to our voting website here: http://www.ibeatyou.com/event/americas_dance_party
All the videos on both sides will be voted on by viewers and the side that has the most support by November 4th 2008 (The day of the actual Elections) gets the title of AMERICA’S OFFICIAL DANCE PARTY…and bragging rights for the next four years. And two million dollars…okay not really. But bragging rights for sure.

Also don’t forget to REGISTER TO VOTE for the Presidential Elections. Let your voice be heard!

 

I think this is a brilliant way to get young people into voting, I mean, Who doesn’t like dance 😉

Vote Obamanators! 😉

As usual my gut was right! I should never doubt myself, I may have found the results of the ACDC – M&MCru Battle Lame and annoying and made me feel like I wasted my time but now, all that has disappeared with a new video from John Chu.

From the Video Description:

ACDC and Invisible Children have been paired up from the beginning to help raise awareness and money for the forgotten kids of Northern Uganda. So far, through the ACDC TShirt sales, we have made over $50,000 dollars for the charity. Now it’s Miley and Mandy’s turn!

We CHALLENGE Miley and Mandy to put their M&M Cru tshirts on sale online and throw 100% of the profits to whatever charity they choose.

We believe dance can change the world. And since this battle has begun, and the tshirts started to sell, we have been. More kids are getting educated, more kids have books, dorms, clean water because of YOU guys and girls!! Thank you for all your support.

The battle is over, but the war wages on.

Stay tuned in the coming weeks for ACDC updates….

Kudos to ACDC for making something amazing out of this. It’s always great to see celebrities using their status to help other’s. Great Video, I really like that they are using something so positive to help so many people. Its healthy, it’s fun, it connects people..well they said it best….Enjoy 🙂

Peace 😉

A little late with posting this but for the sake of Continuity, the Winner of the Youtube Dance off was in fact the M&M Cru. The Audience of the Teen Choice Awards on August 4th declared the winner using their Applause…*rolls eyes* ACDC should have won, More talent, more cherography, …In my humble opinion anyway 😉 And I know I’m not the only one that feels that way.

More Complete Randomness Coming Soon 😉



Reality TV: Evil but We Like it

Disclaimer: Rant/Ramble ahead

Have you ever wondered what makes certain things popular? Like certain T.V Shows that are wretched trash (Living Lohan, America’s next top model, Survivor, American Idol, Jackass, Big Brother for example….) I’ll admit I’ve wasted time being suckered in by a bad rendition of a random one hit wonder on American Idol, and I’ve giggled at the idiocy of some Jackass stunts, and for some reason I have found myself watching Big brother since season 8…(i find the competitions interesting/amusing and to be honest the twist of human interaction in stressful situations appeals to the psychology geek in me) but I still know that its a money making marketing scheme that profits by appealing to human interest and exploitation. It defines the very reason for this rant/ramble and yet I/we still watch it.
Why??
Reality TV as a franchise, is only leading to the deterioration of Society. The focus of what is right and what is good for us has shifted…America (who of course provides most television) pride’s itself on the American Dream but do they even know what that is anymore? The biggest focus is on money, power and beauty and who has it and who doesn’t. What about family or pride? Love or compassion for other’s?
Darwin said – “In the struggle for survival, the fittest win out at the expense of their rivals because they succeed in adapting themselves best to their environment.”
Ofcourse that was way back in the mid 1800’s when people actually had to fight for survival. Time’s have changed and what has come out of it is most likely not what Darwin had in mind.
We’ve all been drawn in by what’s in front of us and not by what we can seek because thats the fact of change, you can only go so far. One day down the road we will either all get bored of what entertains us all or we will be forced to change our way of lives and have to truly learn what makes us survive. We’ve all become dependent on technology and the way we live, we wash, cook and clean with ease, we can have things at the click of a button and not blink an eye to do it. And that’s what makes reality TV so interesting without us even knowing it.. we can have excitement and man’s primary animalistic need for competition and battle all rolled up into one neat little package delivered right to our living rooms. We as humans used to seek the excitement and now we take what we can get, even if its boring, lame and completely a waste of time 😉
Thus another reason why Youtube is so popular and video’s like this, get so many veiws 😉

*Sigh* The ACDC – M&MCru Battle…apparently the live battle is going to be at the Teen Choice Awards……..*rolls eyes* Not what I had in mind for where they were going with that…I should have known that something with Miley Cyrus in it would turn lame…

In other Happy News, the Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince Trailer is up 😀
