Cool Beans

By: Arige Mubarak

    Lately my passion towards golf has unexpectedly become greater than my passion towards learning. This video is a mixture of golf, baseball, basketball and tricks that will seem impossible in your eyes. Plus plus plus the song in the video is really good and if any of you are not least interested in the sport tricks just watch the video, you'll enjoy the song. Golf is not an easy sport I've been told by professional golf player Ricardo Quinones, and these tricks show true talent. If any of you play basketball you know how heavy those balls are and especially how heavy they are compared to golf balls, Now the ability to make a basketball fly that long and that precise with just a small golf club is impressive. I am just simply fascinated by golf and I assume you will too after watching these talented golfers. Please let me know what you think about the video! Ciao

Jarabe De Palo

So as most of you know. Jarabe de Palo is coming to Guatemala. I can't give you specific dates and location but I can say this: It's a concert that you really don't want to miss. This guy has really good music. He is the one that got me into liking this type of music. He has many really good songs two of which are called: Bonita and La Flaca. Don't miss it.

As all of you know, it's Halloween and its a day to get candy and eat it all of it. I thought another halloween prank should be in the halloween spirit. Halloween is one of the best days to hangout with friends and go out and get candy, also one of the best days for pranks. Halloween is so fun and it brings everyone together, after christmas of course. Well everyone enjoy halloween and this prank.

More Marvel

In the next six years about 37 superhero movies are coming out, but Marvel(Disney) is releasing eleven movies. Six standalone movies and five superhero team movies. The standalone movies are: Captain America: Civil War aka Captain America vs Iron Man, Doctor Strange,  Ant Man,Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther and Captain Marvel. The other five are: Avengers: Age of Ultron, Guardians of The Galaxy 2, Avengers: Infinity Wars part one and two, and The Inhumans. This are very interesting news because is the first time we see an African American superhero (Black Panther) and a women superhero (Captain Marvel). Also very big stories like Captain America: Civil War and Avengers Infinity Wars. This are two big comic book stories that change the Marvel Universe and might do the same in The Marvel Cinematic Universe. A lot of the main Avengers might die and it is said that in Avengers Infinity all The Avengers, Guardians and Inhumans will come together to defeat Thanos. In Infinity Wars a lot of character could die and anew team of Avengers will be created  Thanos one of the most powerful beings in The Marvel Universe. I am very excited for this news; the dates of the movies are on the picture. The guy in the second picture is Thanos. When they gave this news Marvel showed a little teaser for Avengers Infinity Wars.

Incomparable Skill

Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo; Two professional soccer players. On their own, they could easily make any team incredibly good. But together... There is no match for the combination of two of the best soccer players alive. Real Madrid's squad has only gotten better and better. On the offense: Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo, and James Rodriguez. On the defensive: Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Varane, and Iker Casillas. In my honest opinion, there is no other team that has a more complete squad than Real Madrid. Very recently, the Merengues (Real Madrid) clashed against their full on rival, Barcelona. As expected, Barcelona lost miserably. These amazing videos just demonstrate the amount of skill and dedication the players put into each and every game. These players have been training since they were very young, and they're hard work is definitely paying off. They make millions of Euros every season, and they do what they love: Play soccer.

I Got You by Duke Demont (Music Video)

I'm not going to lie, i've watched hundreds of music videos, of all sorts of genres, and personally, this beats every single one by far. The way that it is filmed and acted makes the music even sound better. If you've heard this song before, you'll love the video once you watch it. I say this because it correlates to how the video is filmed. The video shows a guy, who happens to be black, who curiously awaits for a package that brings a helmet that lets him become a way different guy, who happens to be white; this is not coincidental in my opinion.  Anyways, as he changes into a completely different dude, he travels to many luxurious places with his girlfriend and it unravels an environment that can be perceived as "heaven." The places he travels to are truly beautiful. Watch the video and comment what you thought about it! Until next time.

Students Face to Face with Opposition at Community Board Meeting

Hey guys! For this week's post, I've decided to show you a video that I came across. Students start speaking up for themselves and their education while the adults are "bickering and yelling", as mentioned in the video. It really shows how much importance teenagers our age are giving to their education, and it is refreshing to actually see them fight for what they want and fight for change, being responsible and mature kids. Some adults in this video on the other hand are acting like children if I do say so myself. Check the video out for yourself and let me know what you think! Do you think meetings like these genuinely help the school change for better?

Avengers Age of Ultron

The trailer for one of the biggest movies of 2015 is finally out!!! Avengers Age of Ultron is the next Avengers film. Age of Ultron is one of the most famous comic-book series. Ultron is an evil android created by Tony Stark and Ant-Man and it includes most of the Marvel universe characters. Obviously the movie adaptation will be slightly different since somme characters are not in the Marvel cinematic universe. This movie includes new characters like: Quicksilver, Scarlett Witch and Vision. Vision is a robot created by Ultron. Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch are mutants. The director said one of the Avengers will die he didn't say who. Not much is known about this movie but finally the trailer reveals a lot new things. This is going to change the Marvel Cinematic Universe wich may lead to Marvel Civil War another big comic-book series.  I am pretty excited for this movie. It comes out on May 1. Enjoy the Trailer.

Without a doubt this has to be the coolest type of racing that there ever was and there ever will be. It's better that formula 1 or even Indy (Nascar). It's motor bike racing. It will always be different depending on the branch of the sport. It ranges all the way from motocross to trial all the way to the Paris Dakar race which is race, that involves bikes and others vehicles and they have to race all the way form Paris to Dakar. For each venue you have to use different set ups. For motocross you have to use a dirt bike (of course) and for pure TT ( Time Trial ) you have to use TT motor bikes that are made for speed. Just watch the video. After watching this video I was convinced that this is the safes sport in the world. ;)

Kid President

By: Lacey

Whether some of you have heard of Kid President or not, this bright YouTuber never fails to inspire with his witty videos. The famous YouTube video series produced by SoulPancake features Robby Novak, more commonly known as Kid President. Brad Montague, the creator of the show, said:

“We created our first Kid President video in July of 2012 out of the simple belief that kids have voices worth listening to. We're doing this because we believe kids can change the world. We also believe grown ups can change the world. It just takes all of us working together.”

For quite a few years now, Kid President releases videos to motivate, entertain, and inform. Some of Kid President’s videos, in fact, have reached an impressive number of 34 million views. What many people don’t know about Robby Novak is that he suffers from osteogenesis imperfecta, a disease that makes his bones brittle. But this doesn’t stop Kid President from continuing to influence and reach many with his voice. Take a look at the videos below to see how great he is!

"Weird" Al Yankovic New Album Mandatory Fun

-David Correa-Schmick

         Hey everybody I'm back again and today I will talk about my favorite singer  "Weird" Al Yankovic. He makes parodies of well-known songs to his very recent album Mandatory Fun. Some recent examples on his album  are Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke, T.I., and Pharrel Willliams renamed Word Crimes, Happy by Pharrel Williams renamed Tacky, Royals by Lorde renamed Foil, Fancy by Iggy Azeala and Charli XCX renamed Handy, and Radioactive by Imagine Dragons renamed Inactive. He also made some songs by himself like First World Problems and Lame Claim to Fame. Mandatory Fun reached #1 in the Unites States.

        My favorite song is called Now That's What I Call Polka. It's a mashup of old songs into one song. It's kind of like the DJ Earworm remix but it's not too similar. The mashup includes popular songs like, Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus, Pumped Up Kicks by Foster the People, Best Song Ever by One Direction, Gangnam Style by Psy, Call Me Maybe by Carla Rae Jepson, Scream And Shout by and Britney Spears, Somebody That I Used to Know by Gotye and Kimbra, Timber by Ke$ha and Pitbull, Sexy And I Know It by LMFAO, Thrift Shop by Mackelmore and Ryan lewis with Wanz, and Get Lucky by Daft Punk and Pharrel Williams.

What did you think of the song? Do you like "Weird" Al Yankovic? Did you watch some of his other song parodies before? What favorite song from the mashup do you like the most?

Escaped Prisoner Prank

               Hey guys!!!!! HOW ARE ALL OF YOU? It's Friday, I'm tired, I'm hyper, I'm hungry, I'm sleepy. Despite all these emotions, I took some time to look for a funny video for you guys to watch because, look, it's Friday. I understand that all you guys want to do is go home and sleep and hang out with friends, but being that you have to comment, I've tried to make it interesting. Here's a prank video done by FouseyTube, where he dresses like a prisoner and pretends to try and escape by asking the people who walk by for help. A lot of the reactions are funny, and the way he acts like a crazy person makes this video a little bit creepy but I think you should watch it, just so that you can laugh a bit. You should also check some of his other prank videos out! I've been watching his videos for a while now and he's got some pretty good ones. Please let me know if he made you laugh or if you just thought he was being annoying. Thanks for you time and I hope you enjoy the video as much as I did :)

P.S. watch out for that ladies' weave. (it falls off at around 2:20)

Extreme Downhill Mountain Biking

One thing is the really athletic side of mountain biking which is kind of boring. I speak with experience. But is somewhat entertaining. Down hilling is much more more fun and extreme. The adrenaline rush that you get from just going down a hill as fast as possible and being on the verge of falling and destroying yourself. I really can't explain that well so here is a video.

United State Of Pop Mashup

Over the years, I have been listening to Dj Earworms' mashups. He has never failed to impress me with his music. I think it is time to share it with the EAS community, nevertheless, I hope you guys find this music great as well.
Every year, this dude posts a new mashup, which is composed of hundreds of songs. In the video below, you will find the one he made for the year of 2013. Not only does Dj Earworm mashup his music, but he also adds the music video, making it worth your time. For any song you don't like, this mashup will most likely compensate for it.

 Here are the songs featured:

Avicii feat. Aloe Blacc - Wake Me Up
Bruno Mars - When I Was Your Man
Capital Cities - Safe & Sound
Daft Punk feat. Pharrell Williams - Get Lucky
Eminem feat. Rihanna - The Monster
Florida Georgia Line feat. Nelly - Cruise
Imagine Dragons - Radioactive
Imagine Dragons - Demons
Jay-Z feat. Justin Timberlake - Holy Grail
Justin Timberlake - Mirrors
Justin Timberlake feat. Jay-Z - Suit & Tie
Katy Perry - Roar
Lady Gaga - Applause
Lorde - Royals
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat. Ray Dalton - Can't Hold Us
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat. Wanz - Thrift Shop
Miley Cyrus - Wrecking Ball

Rihanna - Stay
Robin Thicke feat. Pharrell & T.I. - Blurred Lines
Swedish House Mafia feat. John Martin - Don't You Worry Child
Taylor Swift - I Knew You Were Trouble
Will.I.Am feat. Britney Spears - Scream And Shout

Yes, you are probably confused to how he mixes portions of all these songs in under 6 minutes and he still makes the music flow. Listen and drop a comment on how you thought the song went. Thanks!

Apple iPhone Recording Problems

By: Lacey

Have you ever experienced the grueling pressure that comes with setting up your answering device on your cellphones?  If you have, you know just how difficult it is to come up with the right format of what to say without making it sound too forced, unnatural and odd. But sometimes it just comes out wrong and you need to keep on trying until you get it just right. 

As some of you may remember, Lindsey created a blog post back in August about the sketch comedy group on BYUtv commonly known as Studio C. With the fifth season having just started this past week, Studio C has been releasing several short clips previewing what will be on the weekly episodes. This short clip is about recording devices and the stress of setting up your answering message. Give this a watch. Let me know if you have as hard a time in deciding just what to say. Also, tell me if you can name all the references included in this video! Please enjoy and watch the video below!

"I want to make people happy because I'm happy" - Three year old Asian

          Hey guys! When I was commenting on Lacey's post (yeah I forgot I have to post), I watched this funny cute video of some asian three year old who goes on a competition sort of like America's got Talent and danced to random songs changed by the judges. What amazed me besides his cool robot dance was how intelligently he spoke. After his performance, the judges asked him why he dances, and his answer surprised me. He said the typical "I dance with my mom", but what he said after that and his reasoning is just beyond my expectation of a three year old. It reminded me of how simple and kind hearted little kids are, and I really like that. Anyway, here's the video. It's a bit long but trust me, it's worth it because other than making me go "aww" he also made me laugh.

Hey guys, I really don't know what to write about. Most of the people that know me know that  I really enjoy to post about sports. All kinds of sports in fact, but I do focus more on the more extreme side of things. I recall I have never posted about skiing in general so here goes nothing. I love to snowboard, and ski (I do prefer skiing). But half of my love for the sport is that you have to travel someplace that is completely alien to me. Here in Guatemala we live in the land of endless spring, so whenever the climates change dramatically like a desert or snow, it just makes a vacation that much more exiting. Putting the climate aside; there is one place in particular that I love, and will continue to love till the end of time: Whistle, BC Canada. This place is a dream come true, it really is. It has everything you would expect to find in huge city, but the only difference is that it is a small town about a kilometer wide and a kilometer long, and it's awesome. That is part of the love for the sport. And the mountain trails are really good as well, so that's a bonus. So here I leave video of this sick location and this awesome sport.

The End of Hub and all the things I've liked about it

-David Correa-Schmick

              Hey everybody! This is my first blog post so I'm doing one about a very popular TV channel called the Hub ending. Hub was a channel used to sell toys from Hasbro. Some of these toys included G.I. Joe, Transformers, and one of the most famous My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Hub started in 2010 and is expected to end on October 13, which is a Monday. The channel would then be called Discovery Family, but Hasbro will still control the channel's programming from 9 am to 3 pm.  Andrew Warren, the chief financial officer of Discovery, said "There are fewer and fewer channels out there where children and parents can watch together. Our objective, and our programming imperative, is to continue to think about daytime for children and nighttime for adults." The more you know, the more facts you can tell to people.
             Back in America I used to watch Family Game Night on the channel and I loved it. The show was about these two families who compete against each other with games Hasbro has made like Sorry, Operation, Bop It, and Scrabble. If they win one of the challenges, they choose a card with an icon from the game Monopoly to see if they can win $1,000,000. The winner is the family who gets the most amount of money. It's kind of sad that a channel I grew up and liked it a lot has to go but I hope Discovery Family has some good shows that I will like a lot too. I miss you Hub.

"You Poked My Heart!"

By: Lacey 

Everybody enjoys videos of little kids, right?  Well, here is the most precious one yet!  Lindsey kindly showed me this video and I wanted to, in turn, share it with the rest of you!  In this video, three kids, two of who appear to be twins, are debating over whether it is raining or sprinkling outside.  Throughout the video, two of the children persistently claim that their own mothers told them it is either sprinkling or raining, respectively.  There is a priceless moment when the boy candidly states that the girl is pretty and not real. The dispute continues on until one child “pokes the little boy’s heart”.  He seems to be genuinely hurt and distraught at the poke. 

Having two nephews (and soon a niece) of my own, I always get quite a kick out of the things they say. Do you know any young children who have such animated conversations as these children have had here? Let me know what you thought!

The Oculus Rift

I don't know if any of you have heard of Oculus Rift. I know a few of you have, but in the event some of you remain in the dark, I will explain. The Oculus Rift is a virtual reality headset. Sounds a bit mundane, but it's actually really cool beans. You put it on and you can see and interact with worlds. This is especially cool for any of you gamers out there. It's like you could be inside a video game. Anyway, watch the cool videos with the cool old people. It's awesome, trust me.
The old people say funny things, too :)

P.S. There's a few bad words and a horror scene. This is not for the faint of heart. Sorry.
