VIEWPOINT

Number 1

CaseyNeistat  is the first youtuber on this list. He tops my list because he delivers quality content daily, I pretty much wake up and watch him for a small dose of inspiration to conquer the day. A filmmaker turned daily vlogger in New York City, we get a chance to follow Niestat in the exploits of his daily  life. He uploads daily at 8 A.M. EST, unless he is jet lagged or has terribly slow internet in Cuba that one time. Fans know his son, wife and one year old, and his other baby Beme a tech company based on video sharing. These aspects are seen always in his daily content, oh and the Boosted Board. The reason I love Casey’s vlog is because he is what it looks like when you push yourself to be the best you can be. “Do more,” is one of mottos and he has it tattooed backwards on his forearm as to be read perfectly in the mirror it was also one of his most popular web film. His early youtube content is a lot of awesome traveling and work he has done in the sphere of commercial web advertisement for brands like Nike and J. Crew. Usually he is the star of his films even before he started his daily stuff. I came across his DIY content and have been a fan since the start of his announcement of becoming a daily. Watching Casey daily has been very inspiring as far as being a content creator. He says, “At all costs make something.” Thanks Casey!

Galadon’s Clash of Clans Attacks and Mobile Gaming

“Welcome fellow fans of Clash of Clans,” Yes good ol’ Gallydon is my source for all that is clashing. I play clash of clans semi-regularly, TH8 yo! I’m putting Galadon on this list because he is another reliable youtuber delivering daily content. He has a radio personality in his clash videos consisting mainly of attack replays at the highest levels of the game. He has an on going series to be ranked the number one player on the mobile gaming app. I’d like to note his breakdowns of updates is his strongest suite. Clash is a mobile game created by Supercell. There is  a lot of technology coding and game balancing that goes into the updates and he provides digestible content for the slighly more than casual gamer. If you like the game you might like his channel.

Number 3

“It’s ya boy DJ Akademiks,” DJ Akademiks is a great personality in the hip hop sphere of youtube. He uses his communication background to report off the cuff hip hop news. I found his channel looking into rap beefs. GAME and Stiches, Drizzy and Milly, you know, I’m interested in these things. Although he doesn’t drop content daily he does upload several videos weekly. He uses a lot of his skill in I would have to assume Journalism to pick up some documents in court cases involving rappers. His voice is also so present in the scene he gets offered exclusive content and  he is communicating with a lot of these artists camps and media. If you are down with some hip hop and news check him out.

Number 4

FrankJavCee is a hilariously ironic dude who teaches tutorials for random genres of electric music. I laugh alot at his dank meme laden content. His channel panders to musicians and producers and millennials like myself. If you like Fruity Loops FL studio and want to produce some random music in genre such as Witch House (My fave), Vaporwave, Gabber or Bubble Gum Bass or TRAP check out his Channel. He talks a lot about what the ass dead dicks (aesthetics) of the new electric genres and how they contribute to the sounds of the music. I think he is a very talented content creator, he uploads maybe once a week.

Number 7

CPG Grey. Ok this guy is an all time favorite, he has amazing fun and informative videos,  breaking down some complex topics. I just wish he would upload a bit more. Although when he does drop a vid they are usually something I enjoy and I get a nice packet of information. He has a rundown of misconceptions which is nice oh and can you tell me what the United Kindom is exactly? How about strange borders and geography, Grey explains some crazy things most of us don’t know. Like how to Become the pope or The City of London, its not London they are different, go figure. Holland vs, Netherlands, Scandinavia the Royal Crown. There are several awesome videos on his channel, I highly recommend him.

Number 8

Gavin Hoey is an amazing photographer.Unfortunately Hoey doesn’t keep up with his channel anymore although he is working working with Adorama. He has always been one of my favorite photography based channels on youtube. He mostly talks about talks about different techniques to use in photoshop with his detailed tutorials. He also has several videos on camera technique and 15 minute photo challenges.

Number 9

Japanese Internment camps, happened then could happen again.

Japanese Internment camps, happened then could happen again.

“Some say the end is near some say we’ll see Armageddon soon. I certainly hope we will. I sure could use a vacation from this…” Ænima Tool.

With the world on the edge of a fiscal cliff, the Mayan calendar soon coming to an end and the threat super diseases 2012 is a scary place.

The ancient Mayans marked the end of their calendar cycle, December 21, 2012. The last time the calendar renewed itself they believed Quetzalcoatl god of intelligence and self-reflection would come from the eastern sea. Instead of being greeted by the feathered serpent god they collided with the old world. Hernan Cortez and his modern army marched into Meso-America and ushered in a new era a disease, slavery and control for the native population.

Could this happen in our Modern age? Naysayers will disagree dismissing conspiracy kooks, and religious wackos then carry on with life. While the others cling to their guns and their bibles and prepare for end times.

Raptures, solar flairs, meteor strikes, pandemics or all out nuclear war could be the calamitous ending to the world, as we know it. Many sources have pointed to 2012 being a significant year in the ebb and flow of the universe, including Nostradamus, Hopi Indians and the Bible. It is a recurring theme through time and has been embraced by Hollywood and the media.

Many other end time theories have passed with no result. May 21, 2011, the world was supposed to end, if you remember those end times billboards on highways, with the rapture. The media scare was the work of Christian radio host Harold Camping based on biblical numerology. Dec. 21, 2012 could pass with similar results, just as the Y2K millennium panic and many others.

Professor of Art History and author of  “2012: Science and Prophecy of the Ancient Maya” Mark Van Stone has been interviewed on several shows debunking the 2012 predictions. 13.0.0.0.0 or 4 ajaw 3 K’ank’ in is the date the Maya calendar is renewed after 13 bactums (intervals of 400 years) entering a new beginning.

Stone says there are many reasons why Mayan prediction is false. Starting with the fact, there is simply not enough data. 99% of Mayan artifacts have yet to be dug out of the ground. Most of these allegations of the end are drawn from one broken stone monument and a crudely written book from the 18th century. The ending of the world in December 21, 2012 is contradictory to other sources of Mayan artifacts depicting Queztelquatl returning 40 years from 2012 and many Mayan hieroglyphs have been manipulated, unlike the Koran or Bible where scriptures would stay the same Mayans built upon their glyphs. They did not believe in correction. If a Mayan stone carver were to mess up on a carving he would carry on. The Mayan did not correct their mistakes.  This is because they believed god willed the mistake. So who knows how many mistakes where actually made.

The actual Mayan prophecy is not explicit, it states that the demi god Chilam Balamwill “get dressed” this means to perform a ceremony for the people, ushering in something like creation. Along with the ceremony comes a green bird and the second coming of the feathered serpent it is also stated there will be blood vomit in 2012. What can be interpreted as blood vomit in the 21st century?

Canadian scientists have growing concerns over an air borne interspecies Ebola virus. Ebola is one of the deadliest illnesses on the planet normally transmitted through blood. An air borne strain would be deadly for the human race, causing epidemic or pandemic like situations. Ebola basically rots out your insides. Extreme hemorrhaging of internal organs is the cause of death. A virus that deadly and efficient at spreading could certainly cull the herd that is humanity in 2012. Much like the Mayan prophesy Ebola could cause humans to bleed out of every orifice and vomit blood.

Government does not help the 2012 pandemonium, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) may know something or is taking precautionary measures in case of an epidemic in the states. FEMA and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) have been accumulating and storing stackable plastic tubs known as casket liners across the country. The casket liners are big enough to hold three to four bodies and seal up with a reinforced lid, which are stackable. These casket liners would control disease from spreading containing the infected corpses. In one Georgia soybean field they had as many as 500,000 of these disposable coffins, the CDC leased the land for storage.

FEMA has also been setting up what they have been calling on the Internet, “internment camps” across the country. This is perhaps anticipating Martial Law being called upon by the U.S. government due to epidemic or a plunge off the fiscal cliff.

All constitutional rights go out the window and the public will be subject to relocation. They may use the same fear tactics to round up the Japanese during WWII, hiding their actions under the guise of national security. 2013 might be the year we see the establishment of the new world order. It is all just hear say and conspiracies, all one can do is keep calm and carry on.

In the middle of the Mojave desert in the region which I refer to as Calvada there are many strange dilapidated and abandoned mining towns and camps. In high school we used to explore them. These small places can be very spooky. The small isolated towns, reduced to ruble are what I can only image as monuments to failure in the vast desert.Boom Towns gone as fast as they came. No doubt gambling for a better life hoping to hit the jackpot as most do in this desert. They stand in shambles in an unforgiving environment.

Millions  lose power as far south as Baja Mexico, north to Orange County, and east to Arizona, after Operation error. What do you do during a black out? In the age of technology I feel helpless. I don’t have the world at the tip of my fingers.  I was in the Southwestern College Sun News Room when it happened. Editing a paper. I don’t recall being really effected by a black out until now. The little information I got came from tweets from the newsroom and AM 600, NPR 8.95 didn’t work.

Our Journalistic instincts kick it as a couple of us find a story. Looking for immediate effects of the blackout. The library, the Ceazar E. Chavez building, and cafeteria were evacuated. A stroll around campus reveals people dealing with the blackout within the first hour.

At 7:49 I hear news of power back on in Laguna Miguel and also in eastern TJ and parts of Bonita.

The Sun News Editor and I go to a coffee cart on campus to see immediate effects. The register didn’t work. And the shop had a good amount of people beginning to form a line. I walk around school to see any developing stories. I got a chance to see the build up at the bus stops. There was a SWCPD cop car in front of the Caesar E Chavez Building.  There was a woman stuck in the elevator, the officers had just got her out. One of them had a bag of prying looking tools. They declined to give a statement. Members of the ASO began to put up “ No Class signs”

When I started making my way home I got my chance to listen to the radio. I was listening to AM 600 they were talking about how many people being effect. The highways were massively clogged full of drivers making their way home early. My Mom had to wait in Sorrento Valley for a few hours before she could get home. A mini panic seemed to be induced on the streets. There were several mini collisions at stoplights that didn’t work.

There was a sudden urge to get in contact with loved ones.  Stores were closing.

There were a massive amount of people at the bus stop at the intersection of H street and Broadway in Chula Vista. I seemed to get a taste of an apocalyptic situation. The blackouts happened so close to the anniversary of 9/11 people though of a terrorist attack.  This though never crossed my mind.

Luckily my family had a crank radio and a couple lanterns, we were set. Not knowing how long the power would be out we tried to prepare. My dad pulled out the shotgun and loaded it. This would be the time people could start trouble.

My neighborhood was a buzz, all the character from my hood where out. I walked down my street, AM 600 echoed throughout people trying to get the most up to dat news on the situation.  On my walk I witness two people talking from vehicle to vehicle one yells to the other, “ Be safe lock and load.”  San Diego is mildly tempered enough I wasn’t worried.

My power came on around 10:00 PM.  I enjoyed being reminded of how much we depend on electricity and it was a great experience to hear the story unfolding. Reporters reporting on breaking news, AWESOME.  Time to forget about the black out now. Props to SDG&E for getting the power back up.
