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!

I’m sure most of us have fond memories of amusement parks, whether it be at the Happiest Place on Earth, school field trips to Camden Park, or thrilling visits to Cedar Point or Kings Island. Recently, my brother and fellow Mid-American Culture contributor Chase introduced me to a YouTube channel that produces videos about various amusement park attractions that are no longer in operation, or cease to exist entirely. That channel is called Defunctland, ran by Kevin Perjurer, and I’ve been watching tons of those videos lately, so I thought I’d share some of them with you all today.

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.
Thanks for checking out my post this week. See you next Wednesday!

While my father was at work Friday he decided to send me a Red Hot Chili Peppers music video every hour for the rest of his shift, I feel that deserves some appreciation. Continue reading “Red Hot Chili Pepper Music Videos”
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”
