Five Characters Who Should Be In “Super Smash Bros.” For Nintendo Switch

Last week, Nintendo surprised us all with the announcement that Super Smash Bros. was coming to the Nintendo Switch. Although at this point, it’s up in the air whether it’s a port of the Wii U version or an entirely new installment. Either way, new characters are likely to be included. One has already been announced, the Inklings from Splatoon, an obvious choice. Today, I got five more that I’d like to see, along with some honorable mentions. Let’s begin.

My Favorite YouTubers

YouTube is an awesome platform. It gives anyone with a creative drive and a camera the opportunity to both express themselves and to entertain others who share an interest in their content. Today, I am going to tell you about my three favorite YouTube channels. One of them is a gaming channel, one is a music channel, and one is a sneaker/fashion channel. If anyone is interested in checking them out, links to their respective channels will be provided. Enjoy!



Swiftor is hands down my favorite gaming channel on YouTube. I think what I really like about his channel is that it is not your typical gaming channel. My favorite content of his would probably have to be the mini-games he plays with other gamers, typically in Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto. Anyone who enjoys gaming content should watch his recordings of a game called Mafia, played within Call of Duty. However, if games such as Call of Duty just aren’t your thing, Swiftor has also posted gameplay from games such as The Price is Right, PUBG, Friday the 13th, and H1Z1 Auto Royale all in the last week. As far as gaming goes, I feel like Swift has content for just about everybody. He is an absurdly entertaining dude and I highly recommend anyone who enjoys gaming videos check out his channel!

Meami is a music reaction channel that I just recent discovered. I’m so glad that I did. Reaction videos are some of my favorite videos on all of YouTube and as far as music reactions go, Meami is the best. Watching him react to new music releases is just entertaining. There’s something about the dude’s energy that just makes him a blast to watch. I completely agree with his musical opinions more than not, which is always nice when watching reaction content. Meami is just a cool guy who likes music, games, and his awesome tattoos are also worth noting. Anyone who enjoys hip-hop/rap and/or reaction videos should definitely check him out.

YoAnty was the very first channel I ever subscribed to on YouTube. To this day, he is still my absolute favorite YouTuber. There isn’t a more genuine guy on YouTube. Although he doesn’t do them anymore, his vlogs were the most entertaining on the internet, in my opinion. His sneaker/clothing hauls and reviews are great. The production quality of all of his videos is top-notch, and his thoughts on whatever he’s talking about are always extremely informative. Above all else, he is just a fun, entertaining guy on YouTube who likes talking about shoes, cats, and iced coffee (jet fuel only). He hasn’t fallen victim to the clickbait nonsense that seems to have taken over sneaker YouTube in recent years. He has stayed true to what earned him his subscriber base and I think that’s extremely commendable. Anyone who likes sneakers should absolutely check out his channel!

The Sounds of Hell

There are certain sensations that we eventually became inundated by, and, after sufficient exposure, try to suppress to the deep recesses of our minds in order to maintain sanity. There are a few cases of this for me. For example, I often hear the sounds of MTV U playing in my college cafeteria, which I escape via earbuds. Or the sounds of ongoing construction, often resolved by the same solution as the prior example. But, a particularly notable example of this phenomenon came rushing back into my mind relatively recently, and I thought I’d share it with you all today.

Videos to Bring you Inner Peace

Do you have a pit in the place where your heart should be? Do you have episodes of deep and endless depression? Do you desperately need inner peace? Is Twitter the only thing you have to live for? Do you like memes?

Weekly Waves Vol. 22 Captain America’s iPod

This week’s playlist was curated by @mburnsoh and revolves around a theme of Captain America’s playlist. Ranging from songs he missed out on to songs he was probably referred to its a good variety of genres. Check it out here and check out the idea of playlist’s for fictional people here.



Playlist for Fictional People

So I have a little hobby of making up Spotify playlist for fictional characters from comics and movies. You’d be surprised by the number of folks that have curated collections of songs inspired by the likes of Spider-Man or Game of Thrones. I first heard the new Ice Cube song Good Cop, Bad Cop on a playlist dedicated to the Night King.

It’s fun for me when I get wrapped up in a story line or something to think what music a particular character would be listening to on the daily. My first playlist was for My Hero Academia teacher Shota Aizawa. I just heard songs that reminded me of his story and characterization. He somewhat disapproves of All-Mights bravado so the Kendrick Lamar track Humble was perfect.

I’m a huge fan of Marvel’s Ant-Man so I built one for him full of some cheesey moments, songs with a nod to science too.

If you type almost anything into Spotify search you’re gonna probably get a hit. I found a Castlevania playlist with almost 8 hours of music from the classic video game franchise, including 8-bit renditions and heavy metal versions of the iconic music as well.

My favorite that I’ve been working on is dedicated to Jean Grey and her recent story line from then Phoenix Returns Saga. Issue 11 of the Young Jean Grey and the new launch of X-Men Red was just exciting and I wanted some tunes to capture the new directions for the classic Marvel Comics character.

So checkout some of this stuff on your Spotify or streaming service and build your own based on Fox Mulder or Garfield or whatever. Let me know and I’ll check it out. I even got the rest of the Mid-American-Culture staff on board for our weekly waves as we figure out what would be on Captain America’s iPod so watch out for that. Happy Saturday!

The Weirdest Uniforms In Sports History

Hello everybody, and welcome back to the Mid-American Culture page. Today I am going to discuss the thing people may pay attention to the most in sports, the uniforms. Uniforms can be awesome if designed the right way, but if not, well you could end up on this list. Rather you are a sports fanatic or the lady who won the March Madness challenge by picking what team had cooler colors, you should enjoy this list.

The 2012 New Orleans Hornets

New Orleans dug deep into their history to try and influence a nice jersey, but all they did was make a mess. While everything about Mardi Gras is cool, these jerseys were not and either was their 27-55 record.

The 2012 Montreal Canadians

Honestly, I think these jerseys are pretty cool, but it kind of gives me a headache. The Canadians were paying homage to their team from 1912, and it led to this cool, migraine inducing jersey.

The Current Cleveland Browns

To all the Browns fans out there, I am sorry. Your team is taking an L today because these bad boys are just so damn ugly. I like the inspiration for it, but however, the design was botched and seeing these jerseys on TV burns my eyes.

Mexico’s Goalie 1994-1998

I get it, the 90’s were a wild time, but the goalie, Jorge Campos, jersey was pretty damn ugly. Not only is it ugly, but they have nothing to do with the country nor soccer. This jersey may be the definition of a 90’s design, but, unlike the other 90’s design, this one sucks

2004-2005 Quad City Mallards

I have mixed feelings about these. They are kind of dope, but at the same time it feels like I am watching Woody from Toy Story play hockey.

The 2007 Fresno Grizzlies

I don’t know why they did this, but they did and I love it. Yes, I did knock Mexico’s goalie for his jersey not having anything to do with the team, but these are just cool. The jersey itself flows really well together and I think it was a huge success.

The 1976 Chicago White Sox

These jerseys are cool as hell, but ugly at the same time. I believe these were the only uniforms in baseball to ever have shorts. As a former baseball player, I would have hated to play in these uniforms. Nobody wins when you slide in shorts, the catchers knee guards would rub, and taking a cleat as it is is not fun. The team has retrod these jersey and wore them again, but with pants.

The 1944 Brooklyn Dodgers

While these receive mixed opinions, I think these are ugly. I just thank God that Jackie Robinson did not play in these because, well, look at them. These jerseys remind of those very ‘thot’ like articles of clothing you see the local ‘thot’ wearing or being advertised on Twitter.

What do you think? Are these jerseys dope or ugly? And what jerseys do you think deserve to make the list? Let us know down in the comments! I hope you all enjoyed this article, and as always thank you for tuning in on this fine Friday. Stay tuned for fresh daily content from myself and the rest of the Mid-American crew.
