The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny

Question: What is the first YouTube video you remember watching?

For me, that video was “The Ultimate Showdown”. This video tells a story. Actually, it tells an epic story. It is story of conflict. It is a story of good vs. evil. But above all else, it is a story of triumph. Until recently, it had been years since I had seen this monumental video. Once I was reminded of its greatness, I immediately knew I had to share it with the Mid-American Culture readers. Given the overall lack of time I have had to craft an article for this week, I deemed it to be the perfect time. So please, enjoy the greatness that is “The Ultimate Showdown.”

I genuinely hope that one day, historians will find this video and use it as evidence of what our then ancient culture was like. Never forget those lost in the great battle.

Here’s Something Weird: Simpsonwave

Simpsonwave, or S i m p s o n w a v e, is… interesting. It’s a video subgenre where vaporwave music is playing with clips from The Simpsons. However, the clips usually have an “a e s t h e t i c” purple tint and VHS filters over it to show a dream-like atmosphere. These two combined may seem like an odd combination, and it is, but it actually kind of works. Continue reading “Here’s Something Weird: Simpsonwave”

Revisiting a Classic (2)

In what is sure to be my most provocative blog post ever, we dive back nearly a decade to revisit another internet video classic. My peers might not appreciate the risqué content though.

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

swiftor

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

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

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.
