  • Make a Top 10 or Ranking Video

    Like most people in this day and age, I love sharing my opinions on small random hobbies. For me, this sometimes means rollercoasters. I decided to make a Top 10 for the coasters I’ve ridden.

  • Point of View

    I chose the assignment “Point of View” (3 stars). On the internet, a strange meme/concept has circulated for years called “The Backrooms”, a sort of liminal, otherworldly space that seems to never end and houses dark secrets. Whenever videos about the Backrooms are made, they are often short first person horror clips. I decided to […]

  • The Thing about Tension

I made some more comments. Hearing the voices behind other people’s work was […]

However, since May of this year, The Rock has been seen with his eyes covered with googly eyes. Various media outlets have theorized that The Rock is in a live action adaptation of Coraline, featuring the bizarre replacement of […]

  • Favorite Musician GIF

    My favorite band is Rush, thanks to the late legendary drummer Neil Peart. The band’s magnum opus is La Villa Strangiato, a self described “exercise in self indulgence.” It is a 9.5 minute instrumental in which all 3 musicians are firing on all cylinders. Peart’s drum work is nothing short of fantastic, so I wanted […]
