Check out this awesome YouTube Channel!!!

Due to unforeseen circumstances, I will be unable to upload an article containing my usual wit and Pop-Cultural expertise. Therefore, I hope to make up for it by plugging an awesome YouTube channel I stumbled upon a few weeks ago. The channel is called Rock Reacts. The premise of the channel is that two guys, neither of which are heavily involved in hip-hop culture, react to some of the biggest hits of hip-hop and R&B. I find their reactions immensely entertaining and their takes on the music to be very interesting. I would recommend watching their videos in chronological order, so as to experience the evolution of their opinions and reactions to the music! Instead of reading whatever I would normally be talking about this week, check out their channel and some of the other great content here on Mid-American Culture! I’ll see you next Wednesday!

It had a cool vibe, and it was all together a nice little prog rock song that predated bands such as King Crimson and Rush.   Continue reading “The Weirdest Amusement Park Ride Ever”
