THE STUFF OF SATURDAYS: anti.

hey.

Hey, you guys. Sorry, I know I’m late again.
But I’m a HUGE procrastinator. Yeah, blame it on that.
Or on my ridiculous spazzy iPhone that just does NOT want to send pictures to my computer.
Or on the fact that some of my relatives just immigrated over, and have taken over my computer. (This post is being done on my parents’.) 

Also, I know I promised part 2 of the UD Experiment, but my house was tented for termites over the weekend, and we had to pack everything up. And now I can’t find the eyeliners I was gonna swatch, so…yeah. Sorry. I’ll try to find it and post on it next time! 😀

Anyway, this post is called “anti” because I celebrate Anti-Valentine’s Day! (Or Single’s Awareness Day, as some call it.)
SOOOOO…to all you single/anti-Valentine’s-Day girls and boys who are reading this…
HAPPY BELATED ANTI-VALENTINE’S-SLASH-SINGLE’S-AWARENESS DAY! 🙂

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
so let’s see whats in store for today.
APPETIZER: Music of the Week Day Week
ENTREE: Nails, nails, and more nails.
DESSERT: Birthday+Contest.
DOGGIE BAG: Blurb of the Day
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

appetizer

Music.

Well…this is awkward. I have a MASSIVE post for you guys today, so I’m just going to put one song on here today! Soo…just a few songs of the week. (Obviously, they’re all My Chemical Romance.) I have one song for every week I haven’t posted…Here we go!

Yeah, that’s it! I love all these songs to death, so it’d be awesome if you’d give these a listen! 🙂

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

entree

Nails, nails, and more nails.

Today, there are going to be a NOTW, a nail polish experiment-swatch-thing that I did at Ju’s house out of boredom, and, yet, another haul. DISCLAIMER: Once again, I’m not bragging. I’m adding a poll to see which polish you guys would like to see swatched next. Some are from my last post’s haul, which you can see here.

NOTW+Review- Essie: Shine of the Times

Well, as Essie’s Shine of the Times was quite a big deal- it was the one of the first in the onslaught of flakies! It was part of the “LuxEffects” collection, and it’s a gorgeous opalescent flakie glitter in a clear base

In the bottle, it flashed LITERALLY ALL the colors of the rainbow, but on, you could really only see shades yellow, orange, red, and green, which was disappointing. I’m going to give it a go again and put it over black, another time, to see if the purple and blue will shine through, then.

Since I wore it without base coat (no top coat either), it was a pain to remove, so I would definitely go that extra step. It wore really well, and it stayed on with barely any chips for over a week. It did do this really weird thing where the corners of the polish, around my cuticle would lift up, though, so top coat would probably be a good idea.

Picture time! All these pictures are from about a week after application.

Here, you can see how the polish is lifting off my nail in the bottom right corner. D:

I actually do have the polish on, you just can't see it! 😛

Look at the purple and blue! 🙂

It’s so pretty! I definitely recommend this if you guys don’t have it or want to try a flakie polish! 🙂

The Massive Nail Polish Experiment-Swatcharoo-Thing.

I went over to Ju’s house a couple of weeks ago, and she had a bunch of nail polish lying around, and I was bored…
…so we swatched a ton of them.

Here’s the whole lineup. From left to right- Sinful Colors: Black Crackle, OPI: Pros and Bronze, Sinful Colors: Let Me Go, Etude: Nail Roll Roll GR601, Estee Lauder: Frozen Fantasy, Wet ‘n’ Wild: Party of 5 Glitters, Color Club: Holiday Splendor, and Sally Hansen: Crackle Overcoat Snow Blast.

In the above picture, we have, from left to right- 1 coat of Sinful Colors: Let Me Go, 4 coats of Etude: Nail Roll Roll GR601, 2 coats of Estee Lauder: Frozen Fantasy, 3 coats of Wet ‘n’ Wild: Party of 5 Glitters, and 1 coat of Color Club: Holiday Splendor.

I am IN LOVE with Estee Lauder’s Frozen Fantasy (the one on my middle finger), but, sadly, I don’t think I can pull it off. Maybe a bit too cool-toned? It’s a frosted nude. Tell me if you think I can in the poll! 🙂

Here are some more pictures(: I think having OPI’s Pros and Bronze on top of it makes it look better on me(:

Argh, I love it! It's so pretty, but I don't think it's for me 😦

Frozen Fantasy with OPI Pros and Bronze over it on my middle finger, and Holiday Splendor with Black Crackle over it on my pinky.

Estee Lauder with OPI Pros and Bronze on top in the sun(: SO pretty(:

LOL Ju's hand(:

Sinful Colors’ Black Crackle…the horror. It’s SO AWFUL. Look above…does that look at all like the crackle on the tag? If you’re looking for a good, cheap crackle, this is NOT the one you want! (I’m also SO over crackle now, it’s gotten old. Take a look here for other In’s and Out’s.)

Another rant… Wet ‘n’ Wild’s Party of 5 Glitters. On the picture above the one above (so 2 up) you can see how sparse it is and how it’s pooling at the edge of my nail. That’s 3 coats! And every coat I added, it dissolved the one below, so it just turned liquid again. It wouldn’t even be good for layering. DO NOT BUY THIS!

Oh, guess what? I have ANOTHER rant- Etude’s Nail Roll Roll GR601. It took 4 coats to get it opaque, and you could still see brush strokes. It was also an awful, frosty blue color (eughh.) and it took forever to dry. I think it’s a pretty rare brand, so you probably won’t ever come across this, but if you do… DON’T BUY IT.

Now, for Sally Hansen’s Crackle Overcoat Snow Blast.

It crackled pretty well for a drugstore polish, and it’s relatively inexpensive, so this I would recommend. I’m not a fan of white nail polish, though, it can sometimes look like white-out.

Sinful Color’s Let Me Go was also really pretty, though it’s super sheer. It’s a duo-chrome, shimmery purple-to-green, and I like it a lot. It’s definitely for layering, though.

I also love Color Club’s Holiday Splendor (Ju reviewed it before) and it’s definitely one I’m going to wear the next holiday season! 🙂

I Freakin’ Love Presents. [Another Polish Haul, Yes.]

As you guys know, it was my birthday recently, and I got presents! NAIL POLISH, WAHOO! 🙂 My good friend R*, who also got me a ton of Essie polishes (you can see the ones she got me here) got me…A DEBORAH LIPPMAN NAIL POLISH SET! 🙂 It’s a set of 3 mini glitters (sorry, I forgot the names), and they’re all super pretty! (Though I’m not in love with the pink…) Here are some pictures! The packaging was super cute and silver, and there were little dividers to keep the polishes apart.

Charcoal and holo glitter~! ❤

The box with the lid(:

I love her to pieces for getting me this(: ♥

My other friend, my BFFL J* (not Ju, but Ju did get me an epic present, too), got me Nicole by OPI’s Nicole…Spotted! which I’ve been wanting literally FOREVER (it was even on my wish list on here, click here to see), and it’s gorgeous! It’s a teal jelly with red-orange-yellow-lime and teal-blue-indigo-purple, color-changing glitter.

I love it and I love her(:

Now for the poll…which nail polish would you like seen swatched next? Click here to see some of the polishes- they were in the haul on my last post.

If a glitter wins, I’ll put it over the highest-voted opaque color(: PLEASE VOTE! Thanks! 🙂

Birthday+Contest.

Well…I was going to talk about my life, because, you know, I’m a massive narcissist, and that’s what I do. But, since this post is already MASSIVELY LONG, I figured I’d just do that next time and stick with talking about the contest and last post’s birthday wishes.

Birthday Wishes! 😀

First, I’d like to thank you all! You guys helped me achieve almost all of my birthday wishes, which was awesome of you all! You guys get ∞ ♥’s! (If it’s crossed out, we achieved it! All these stats are from 5:02 PM on March 2, 2012.)

YAY! 🙂 150 views on my Alicia blog– 226, thanks! 25 comments on my Alicia blog– Ohhh, 31! Comments make me happy! 😀 10 blog followers- Well, we didn’t reach that, but 9 is plenty!

Once again, thank you all! EVERYONE WHO HELPED OUT GETS AN INVISIBLE PET GIRAFFE. 😛

Contest.

Okay, so this is KIND OF REALLY IMPORTANT if you’re in the contest!

In case you didn’t understand, the challenge is ALWAYS due the next week!

So, that means that this challenge is due March 10, 2012! If you need extra time, email us, and we will extend it an extra week (March 17th).

Got it guys? Good.

Blurb of the Day

On my last post, I asked you guys whether or not you wanted to have a video in this section, as well as my usual, (at least in my opinion) funny picture. 3 of you said yes, 3 said no, and 4 said you didn’t care…so I decided to do it! You don’t have to watch it if you don’t want to…

And, now the picture… 🙂 You have to open it in a new tab and then zoom to see it clearly, sorry… but I love me some memes! 🙂

GENIE GOT TROLLED! TROLOLOL! 😀

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That’s all for today’s meal, folks!
Sorry that it’s late.
DARN YOU, IPHONE!

Thanks for reading!
Please comment and/or like if you think it’s worthy!

JujuJabbers: Swatch Scars

Hello Jujubes!

First, I just wanted to acknowledge the fact I have just relapsed into a tumblr addiction.  Its not healthy.

Today I’m doing a jumbo post, as promised in my last post, which was very short and kind of sad…:P.  Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful week!  I sure didn’t…so much stuff happened, I’m so glad it’s the weekend and I get to sleep in,  not have finals, and have some alone time with just me and my computer!

So, this week I have some makeup to haul!  This will probably be more of a haul/review since I’ve had time to use the products and stuff.  So, without further ado, leggo! (:

∞~Ready to Go~∞

Verse: polishrant:  the speechless horror

Refrain: the contest results.

Chorus: drugstore swatcharoo!: feat. maybelline, e.l.f, and revlon

Bridge:  the -otd’s

Verse:

You’ve got these little things
That you’ve been running from
You either love them or I guess you don’t
You’re such a pretty thing
To be running from anyone
A vision with nowhere to go

polishrant: a horror story

There once was a girl named Juju, who decided to paint her nails a pretty color named “Austentatious Turquoise” from OPI.  It was a mini polish, and because of her love of mini things, decided to try it because of its cute packaging even though she hadn’t heard the best reviews about it.  As she painted her nails, she noticed something horrid; low pigmentation. Very skeptical that OPI would make such a terribly thin and watery polish, she tried another coat to see if it would turn opaque.  Nothing.  Another coat maybe would help, she thought.  After five coats of horror, it looked presentable, though you could still see the nail line, and it had gotten unbearably goopy looking.  Not wanting to spend time removing it, and already being late for a dinner, she quickly put a coat of quick drying top coat on her left hand and rushed out the door.

I hope you guys enjoyed that little story segment.  Pretty clever, huh? Wait…no? Oh, ok….

the results:

day numero 1 left hand

  Sorries about the blurry pic, I’m still getting used to my new camera.  But this showed off the adorble mini bottle!  If you guys haven’t noticed, I’m a sucker for mini things.  AND jumbo sized things, like giant pocky!  BTW, this is my hand with topcoat!

day numero 2 left hand

Day 2.  As you can see, there is major tip wear already, and some chipping on the thumb.  However, this is good compared to…

day numero 4 right hand

No words.  Speechless.  Three words for every nail polish junkie; DO NOT BUY!!  The reviews on the full bottle are the same as mine, so its not just the mini size.

This color, though gorgeous, is very dupable [it is just a teal color], and you can probably find a drugstore dupe that has a better formula.  Do not waste your 8 bucks on this.  Go and get another OPI, like “Grape…Set…Match!” or “Servin’ Up Sparkle”.  Its not worth it!!

Refrain:

So tell me right now
You think you’re ready for it
I wanna know
Why you got me going
So let’s go
We’ll take it out of here
I think I’m ready to leap
I’m ready to live

the contest results

So, I’m pretty much going to paraphrase what janine said in the post here.

The Scores:

Cindy: 0/60

Alexa: 24/60

Evon: 25/60

Rain: 25/60

Cece: 35/60

Jill: 40/60

Arielle: 40/60

Avery: 48/60

Randy: 50/60

Lauren: 58/60

The next challenge is to make a playlist of 5 youtube videos/ youtubers that you think we will like.  There is no need for title.  You can’t use anything from Janine’s last post or the Motion Picture Entertainment page.

Good Luck!

Chorus:

I’m ready to go
(Get me out of my mind
Get me out of my mind)
I’m ready to go
(Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh)

 drugstore haul/swatcharoo!: feat. maybelline, e.l.f, and revlon

first up to bat: Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Pink Plum

I really like the formula; it is sheer, but it feels really nice on your skin, doesn’t make you feel greasy, and gives you a nice glowy flush.  Also, its super fun to play with; like playdough!

next up: e.l.f. blush and bronzing duo in blushed/bronzed

Personally, I think the blush is too sparkly.  However, I like the bronzer; it has a natural sheen and is pigmented.  Me likey 😀

here is our next special guest: TheBalm Time Balm

I LOVE this concealer; probably a HG (holy grail) product.  Its 10 hours of extra sleep in a pot, pretty much.  This goes on smoothly, doesn’t cake, and is super pigmented.  This is love  ♥

for our act of the night: Maybelline Volume Express One by One mascara

This is my second tube of this mascara, so I think that alone shows how much i like this mascara.  The formula isn’t too wet or too dry, and the wand is brilliant (:

and the last act to end the show: Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Plum

The Revlon Lip Butter; what can I say, I joined the band wagon.  All I can say is that it is totally worth the hype.  First off, I love the buttery consistency it has on my lips.  The color is also fabulous, it really is my lip color, but better [trust me, I hate that term], but it is truly amazing.

Bridge:

I think I’m ready I think
I know I’m ready I know
I think I’m ready I think
I know I’m ready I know
I think I’m ready I think
I know I’m ready I know
I think I’m ready I think

the -otd’s:

NOTD:

So right now, I’m currently wearing something that might be my new favorite nail combo/manicure.

You guys ready for the awesomeness?

1
2
3

Sorry for the crappy iSight quality

Its Essie’s First Dance [bright red jelly like creme] with OPI’s Pro’s and Bronze [gold, copper, and pink fleck glitter] on top.  MIND EXPLOSION.  I’m kind of in love with it.  AND, it been three days and I haven’t had a single chip, and no tip wear!  Even with no top coat.  I must say, I’m very impressed.

AOTD:

So, today’s app of the day is really mainstream.  Almost everyone knows what it is. Its called…

TEMPLE RUN

Oh, and I have relapsed into my addiction to tumblr.

QOTD:

Hope you guys enjoyed the post (: See you next time

With Love,

Juju

THE STUFF OF SATURDAYS: happy birthday to me.

hey.

Look alive, sunshine.
109 in the sky, but the pigs won’t quit.
You’re here with me, Dr. Death Defying.

Just kidding! It’s Janine!
∞ points to you if you know where that’s from, though(:

Here it is, as promised, my next post. Albeit a tad late (sorry, blame the computer virus), and quite long, but I hope you all enjoy! A billion ♥’s to you all for being patient(:

Also, ahead of time…I’m sorry, I know this post is long. 2,036 words, but read it anyway! PLEASE! I’ll send you free…pencil sharpeners? Oh, I don’t know…xD

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
so let’s see whats in store for today.
APPETIZER: Music of the Week Day Week
ENTREE: So much stuff… [Nails+Haul+Birthday+UD Experiment+Contest]
DESSERT: My Unhealthy Obsession
DOGGIE BAG: Blurb of the Day
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

appetizer

Music.

My Chemical Romance. 

I know what you’re thinking…what happened to that amazing organization and the breaking down into groups? Well, this week, I took a hike down the MCR trail.

I’ve known their music for a loooong time, as long as I’ve liked punk-pop-emo stuff. I just never really got into them, until now. Before, I was all, “Oh, My Chemical Romance. Yeah, I know them. They’re songs are…a’ight.” But now, if you ask me about them, I’ll probably squeal (which I never do), and yell “IT’S TIME TO DO IT NOW AND DO IT LOUD! KILLJOYS UNITE!” or something along those lines. Yes, I know I’m super embarrassing, jeez.

A list of my favorite MCR songs by album…

From Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge: Helena [I love this song SO SO SO much!], I’m Not Okay, The Ghost of You, Thank You for the Venom, and Cemetery Drive.

From The Black Parade: Dead!, Welcome to the Black Parade [Love this one too! ], I Don’t Love You [So sad, but so amazingly brilliant! ], Cancer [Also supremely sad, but an awesome song ], Teenagers, Disenchanted, and Famous Last Words [SO GOOD THAT MY BRAIN EXPLODED!].

From Danger Days: Na Na Na, Sing, and The Kids from Yesterday [All of these are such brilliant songs, I don’t even know what to say.] I haven’t really listened much to Danger Days yet, so forgive me, I don’t have much to say. Sorry! I’ll definitely update you all on my progress, though, LOL. The Glee cover of Sing murdered my ears, though. They completely butchered it. HATEHATEHATE it! No offense, Gleeks.

Another song I’ve been loving is “Face Down” by Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. I’ve known this song for a long time, and was SO fantabulously excited when a contestant for our contest sent me this song on her playlist!

Thus concludes our weekly music-fest and appetizers. Let’s go on to our entree.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So much stuff…[Nails+Haul+Birthday+UD Experiment+Contest]

NOTW+Revlon Scandalous+Cherries in the Snow (Continued)

Nails of the Week…hm. Well, I actually haven’t painted my nails in 2 weeks, seeing as I just had to go ahead an break 2 of my nails again. Freaking awesome, considering I’m becoming somewhat known for doing music+nail posts!

I guess I’ll continue with reviewing some polishes from last week’s post. One thing I forgot to mention, while the other, I hadn’t experienced yet.

Remember Revlon Scandalous? That black-and-pink-glitter polish? [Click here if you don’t remember.] Most of my readers loved it, and even I liked it (rare, since pink is my least favorite color)! Well………

It was a byotch to take off. For reals. I got pink glitter EVERYWHERE (glitter was falling out off of me, and I didn’t even know it was there), and it took FOREVER to get off. The glitter caught on the cotton balls, and it was awful. 2 hours, an entire bag of cotton balls, a TON of nail polish remover, and a sink full of blackish-grey water and pink glitter later, it was off my nails.

Apparently, to take glitter polishes off, you’re actually supposed to do something with tin foil and acetone, but I couldn’t find the foil… -_- If you do, however, have locatable foil, you should definitely give this one a go!

As for Revlon Cherries in the Snow, that gorgeous red 1-coater jelly-creme (it’s a jelly in the first coat, but a creme if you add more) was also pretty bad during removal. It turned my fingers all red, and it stained my nails red! It looked like I’d dipped my fingers into blood and tried, unsuccessfully, to wipe it off. So, guys, be aware! It’s amazingly purty and has an awesome formula, but you might get serial-killer hands.

Thank you, Christmas! [Polish Haul]

More on nails! These polishes I got for Christmas from assorted people! [I got other stuff, too, but I want to show you a sneak peek of some polishes I’ll be swatching soon! Also, this haul is not to brag, like I said…sneak peek.]

First off, here are the polishes Ju got me! Sephora by OPI: I’m With Brad and Teal We Meet Again. I’m With Brad is a metallic blackened red, and Teal We Meet Again is a metallic blackened teal…Love them both!

Then there’s Pa A16, which my friend M* gave me. The pictures do NOT do this polish justice. In person, it’s a metallic gold with a hint of red micro-glitter in it as well. But, by far, the best part is…there are mini holographic flakies in it. I love flaky glitter, and this polish is amazing! (I know you totally can’t see the flakies, sorry!)

The last polishes are thanks to my friend, R*, who is AMAZING, and an even bigger nail junkie than I am! She gave me 6, yes SIX, Essie polishes, as well as the well-loved Seche Vite top-coat! The colors are Loophole (metallic silver), Russian Roulette (classic red creme), Jamaican Me Crazy (shimmery fuchsia- though I’ll probably never wear it since it’s pink), Borrowed and Blue (gorgeous baby blue creme), and My Way (light pink).

Just click the pics to enlarge them! Sorry, the last few pictures are from one of the next segments, ignore that for now! 

Birthday Wishes! 😀

In case you didn’t know, it’s my birthday month. I’m also an Aquarius, so obviously my birthday is around now (not telling the actual date in case of creepers…but click here to find out more about me!) I have a few wishes that can’t go on my wishlist though…(click here for Ju and I’s wishlist), so here we go!

3,500 views on P&P- as of 5:52, January 26, 2012, we only need 76 more views!
350 comments- as of the same time, we only need 18 more comments!
40 blog followers-  we only need 4 more!
150 views on my Alicia blog- I only need 38 more! (Click here to go to my RP blog!)
25 comments on my Alicia blog- I only need 5 more!
10 blog followers- I only need 3 more!

It’d be the best birthday present ever if you guys could help me out and make my wishes come true! xoxo(:

The…wait for it…Urban Decay Experiment.

I’m sure you’ve all heard of the high-end makeup brand Urban Decay, and their famous eyeliner pencils. I’m also sure you’ve contemplated buying their stuff. Here I am, showing you the truth about Urban Decay liners, with swatches and pictures galore! (The colors I’m showing you are Ransom, an iridescent purple, and Mildew, a shimmery forest green.)

Here’s 2 layers of Ransom, and 1 layer of Mildew! Mind you, Ransom was freshly swatched, while Mildew had been on my hand overnight already (so it was on my hand for about 8 hours already!) Mildew is doing pretty good! It looks EXACTLY the same as when it was just swatched. If you wanted to wear this to school, it would definitely stay on. Sorry, I don’t have a just-swatched pic of Mildew.

The next picture is from 11 hours later. Ransom is now 11 hours old, and Mildew has been on there for 19 hours. NINETEEN. Amazing! Ransom’s holding up pretty well, but Mildew has clearly begun to fade.

This is 28 hours after the last picture. Both have faded (quite a bit), but considering this is close to/over 2 days later (45 hours for Ransom, 53 for Mildew), this is AMAZING. Definitely try these eyeliners!

This is 17 hours after the last picture. The eyeliner is almost completely gone (in person you can see a teensy bit of it clinging on), but it’s done for. Ransom has been on for 62 hours, and Mildew has been on for 70 hours. Impressive! 😀

Thus concludes the Urban Decay Experiment. Results: GO TRY IT OUT!
Next week, I’ll be testing out Urban Decay Binge, a shimmery midnight blue! 

Contest Information!

If you haven’t entered the contest, well…it’s too late now! All slots are full! (Jill entered, but not by comment…Oh, I don’t know, as Ju.) The contest is now closed. If you are entered…all your playlists are due on Saturday, January 28th! Please, please, please remember a title! It’s worth 10 points! And Ju and I really don’t want to have to chase you down to get the title!

The next challenge will be posted on Saturday, so wait for that! We’ll also eliminate someone, and their name will be crossed off the list of contestants! Good luck! There will be a section where we will post the scores of everyone’s playlists!

That’s all for the main course! Now we can go ahead and eat our desserts!

My Unhealthy Obsession

What is it, you may ask? No, what I’m talking about is not nail polish (though that is ONE of my obsessions…but that’s quite obvious). It’s YouTube. [Click the green underlined usernames/video names to go to the channels/videos! Or play the embedded videos, they’re all amazing, I promise!]

Not all of YouTube either…I’m particularly obsessed with funny British guys. Oh, dear God. I’ve known charlieissocoollike (and his roommate, nerimon, for a SUPER long time, but probably 6 or 7 months ago, I was watching “Coming Out (Charliebot)“, and he linked to a guy named crabstickz who was just as, if not more, brilliant, just with less subscribers, and I TOTALLY love him! Just recently, though, through crabstickz, I found AmazingPhil, who is, as his name says, AMAZING. But the previously listed aren’t even my biggest obsession yet.

danisnotonfire. Yep, the one with the fringe and the *gasp* tan. He’s hilarious [and sooooo nice to look at(;] so go check him out! He and AmazingPhil also have a collab channel: superamazingproject. PLEASE WATCH THE EMBEDDED VIDEOS! You don’t have to, but come on… they all have sexy British accents. 😛 Go subscribe to them if you like them!

Dan is the one on the left, with the brown hair(: I especially love the Titanic reenactment! 😀

This is possibly my all-time favorite danisnotonfire video! He’s so funny and fake-serious!(: And his hat…it’s AWESOME!!!!!

Dan’s on the very left, Phil’s in the Dr. Pepper shirt, Crabstickz (Chris) is on Phil’s other side, and PJ is on the right!

My two favorite AmazingPhil videos!

And, last but not least, my favorite Crabstickz videos!

His Owen Wilson accent…it’s so surreal… *_*

Part of the Bad Occupation series, but this is by far my favorite!

The best Crabstickz video EVER. EVERRR!!!!!!! Yeah…Chris looks good in black-and-white. 😉

Another amazing video! Just go check out his channel, all his videos are amazing. Same for Dan and Phil! PLEASE(:

Hope you enjoyed this segment of my favorite videos! I might start a section as part of “Blurb of the Day” with my favorite video of the week. [I’ll limit it to just one video, I promise.] Please vote on whether or not I should do this!

Please vote! 😀

Blurb of the Day

Going on with the YouTube addiction theme…today’s blurb is a video! This guy is awesome! I’ve been subbed to his channels for at least a year! He does make-up-related videos and other stuff, too. He’s always really funny, and its awesome! Here’s an example:

Hope you liked the vids! 😛 The link to his channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/ScottieSparkles

That’s all for today’s meal, folks!
Sorry that it’s a bit late. Stupid computer virus.
Thanks for reading!
Please comment and/or like if you think it’s worthy!
