2014: In Retrospect - All About that Booty and then some...

Ahhh... The year of 2014.

 One could say that this year was the year of the booty. I'm only doing this because one of my friends suggested that I do an end-of-the-year-post on perhaps the BIGGEST year in the history of the universe. (If by big you mean the sizes of the booties that we've seen thus far)

The list could go on and on about all of the butts that we've seen twerking or sang about throughout the year.

Which would include those of:

Nicki Minaj (lol jk jk... I really meant this)

Jennifer Lopez (Of course can't forget about Iggy Azalea, I mean have you seen her butt? For a white girl she has a lot of insured assets ;) )

Meghan Trainor

Kim Kardashian (who can forget about how she almost broke the internet?? ~ both links might be considered NSFW)

And of course the honorable mentions of:

Jason Derulo

Taylor Swift

"Excuse me, pardon me, sorry getting through... Oh wow, why the moon is very full tonight!"

Today's artists with their coveted assets are kind of like goldfish, because they literally eat where they... well, you get the idea...

But, If you're like me besides, looking forward to the end of the year to watch the end-of-the-year-specials, like Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve (With Ryan Seacrest), you look forward to making your resolutions because we all try so hard to leave all the bad stuff that we did the previous year, in lieu of the new year that's coming (Even if we're probably all going to break our New Year's resolutions a couple of days after we make them). So, at this year's crossroads between 2014 and 2015, what will your New Year's resolutions be?

Mine without a doubt is to remain as happy as I always am, despite the ups and downs that I had encountered this year,

And it's also to get more sleep,

And to finally realize my dream of learning some new languages.

Here are the highlights of my year:

I started a blog!

I made it halfway, halfway through College!

I also got a new mascot!

She's a girl... by the way
And there's also this:

The best gift of all time (and 2014) from the best friend ever
I also hope to empower others in the future through the power of self-expression and ultimately booty-shaking :P (okay so maybe not so much the booty shaking, even if I do possess some assets of my own *wink, wink*)

I also hope to have more highlights next year...

I was going to write an entire post about how this year is undoubtedly going to go down in history (and in infamy) as the year that was ultimately taken over by one of the most weirdly coveted and hated body parts perhaps in the universe. But, if you're like me, then besides the sea of booties, you just want to enjoy the end of this year and welcome the new one like every other year.

So Happy New Year! For Next year and every other year that there is to come!

I'll leave you with some of the most inspiring videos of 2014, but always remember that we all have bright futures behind us.

Here's a look at 2014 on Google

2014 was an incredible year for science and technology

Happy New Year Everybody

P.S: Adding Beyonce to the list of booties would be overkill, because with her every year is the year of the booty

P.P.S: Another Highlight to my year was seeing Carlton do the Carlton! But of course even he is sad to see this year go...

Okay so North Korea is acting like an overgrown child and Cuba is America's new BFF, what else is new?

Note: This was written on December 18, 2014: When the fate of The Interview was in the balance and Cuba just decided to become friends with the U.S. It's not that long ago, but I guess I should clarify since some things have changed since then...

I know, I know... they have soooo much in common! Okay. Not really, besides both being hot topics on the news, but can't say it wasn't wishful thinking right? As I'm sure everyone in the world has seen (but not yet seen or ever will see really) is the issue with the (once) upcoming "popular?" film The Interview, starring (the two most awesomest dudes/besties/bromance ever) Seth Rogen and James Franco.

The movie was supposed to be about, what I could gather as, two hilariously bumbling reporters attempting to follow through on an order received from the CIA to attempt to assassinate the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un (after being invited to North Korea by him in the first place). If you want to double check me on that, check out the Wikipedia page that was already decked out for the movie.

Now, the film is probably never going to be seen because North Korea got offended?

What I want to say is just: Hold Up. I don't understand why this has to be such a big issue! I mean it's not even that serious! (I mean even the assassination scene in this film is not even that serious) The movie is a comedy for goodness sakes!! (And PLUS since when has America ever put the feelings of another country into consideration? We do what we want, when we want BECAUSE we're Americans!) Besides doesn't anyone remember the film that was made that happened to involve the assassination of Saddam Hussein? While he was still alive? At least he didn't seem butthurt by it. But on the other hand, I guess if there was a movie about an assassination attempt on my head then I wouldn't be happy either... But really, HACKERS?

I'm serious when I tell you this is what I thought of when the news was initially talking about the hackers... No lie.

In a place where I didn't even know people had "unlimited" access to computers? (Unless that internet is being used in the same fashion that America had used its internet before it was available to the public? Y'know... by only the military?) I know that Asians are smart and that they could hack into anything, I even watched a video in which there was something on China and its massive "cyber" hold over America (unfortunately I have no idea where I was looking at that).

It was all like: "Hey, one wrong move America and I'm going to hack you up" and America's like: "Yeah, not buying it, but it doesn't hurt to be careful."

"The fact that North Korea saw a threat in a movie made by Seth Rogen and James Franco, really says a lot about the kind of regime that's being dealt with" (As stated by Obama at his estrogen-dominated year-end news conference). Can I really take the North Korean regime seriously?

Well, personally I think they're fooling no one, because as adorable as Kim Jong Un looks right now, I can definitely say with conviction that he's acting even more like a kid than usual. And it's soooo cute, I really can't take him seriously.

I would call it childishness, but others have already gone ahead and claimed that North Korea is (strategically) going crazy.

Of course the fact that he also possesses missiles and other Nuclear weapons, raises his age up quite a bit, but still I guess I would call him a child genius, because even though he's being smart, it's clear that he wants to show everyone that he's totally effed-up and he's just about ready to eff anyone who tells him that to his face.

Not that anyone would tell him that to his face... Hey! look at some more stuff that makes North Korea look crazy.

But WAIT? Isn't Sony... An Asian company? Shouldn't Asians have countermeasures against other Asians? Especially Japan versus North Korea? Shouldn't they of all people know what North Korea is capable of (besides obviously China and South Korea)?!

Let's look at who's in charge shall we?

Okay... So, now I'm confused... But wait didn't this involve Sony Pictures

Ohhhh Great. An American. Well that explains everything. Didn't see that one coming...

Well shame on you Michael Lynton! I'm joking... you really didn't do anything wrong... But, Obama himself said something along the lines of: We cannot let a dictator of someplace start imposing censorship on America, just because he didn't like the movie. We cannot allow the practice of censorship of American self-expression, because then that would not be representative of what America is all about anyway! So in a way (and Obama said this too) Sony Pictures "made a mistake" in taking down the film and in giving in to the fear that North Korea wanted to instill in the hearts of those working for and connected to Sony Pictures at least.

You gotta admit though the stuff that was leaked by the hackers was kind of funny, especially since they allowed me to uncover this spectacularly crazy gem (please read it, if you're not already reading it already... go in with an open mind and you'll come to enjoy this extraordinary piece of work).

But of course now we know that there's nothing to worry about anymore because, (as was evidenced when I went to New York City on Christmas Eve, in big black letters) The Interview is now being released as planned (albeit in select theatres...)! And it's even on YouTube!!

 Can everyone agree with me that this looks free? I'm afraid to click on it because I'm not sure how long it will last and I hope I don't have to pay for it.. Otherwise I'll watch it later. Definitely a good film for the family.
Oh and of course! In other news, Cuba has now become America's new BFF! I believe it's about time that someone went around and ended this ridiculous manly standoff and turn over a new leaf in International friendship. Also I think everyone else thought that America cutting off Cuba because of its irrational fear over communism, was kind of ridiculous too.

And there was also this spectacular show of technological advancement in the protection against Nuclear war!
That was awesome too.

This newly christened relationship between the U.S. and Cuba will no doubt be a riveting chapter in America's history books (along with the Sony Hacking of course). Now, since they're friends, how about ending the embargo as well... hmmm?

"Raul...I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship"

And besides if this dictator can be friends with the leader of the free world after everything that's happened between them, who's to say that another dictator can't eventually become friends? I mean didn't Dennis Rodman say that all Kim Jong Un wants is a phone call with Obama talking about their shared love for basketball? I think they're gonna look at what is happening now and the near not-so-distant really distant future.

"I just broke your internet... but we're gonna laugh about this later"

**How about more stuff starring Seth Rogen and James Franco?

SIDE NOTE: Can I just mention how funny and cute Seth Rogen's laugh is?

I'm telling you, If I were ever to be the black person in a horror movie, I wouldn't be the one to go first

Note: This post was written at 3:34 this morning, please enjoy my coherent writing. If anything doesn't make sense, it's not my fault, you're just not reading it right. 

Okay so right now I'm up at 3:34 in the morning, because apparently my brother fell asleep watching television forgot to turn off the TV in an attempt to spite my parents because they told him to go to sleep because of forgetfulness.

I also decided to get a glass of water, because it was late night and I was thirsty, but something deterred me from my route to the kitchen.

I heard a sound coming from the kitchen, that eerily reminded me off a what a horror film suspense track should might must sound like since I've never watched them.

It sounds like (note I'm using present tense because I'm in my room and I still hear the sound) a mix between Scuttle's wonderful singing in the Little Mermaid's "Kiss the Girl," and maybe a Skrillex some type of dubstep song... you know that sound right before the beat drops in just about every dubstep song? (I don't think Skrillex could describe what I'm hearing right now).

It comes and goes and it just keeps getting louder a lot like my father's snoring, but then after a few seconds it stops.

And then it comes back again.

And then it stops.

I was in the hallway at the crossroads between my bedroom and the kitchen and the bathroom and the living room and my parents' room, but I just couldn't make out where the sound was coming from.

I decided to first go towards the living room, but I knew the sound wasn't coming from there because as soon as I went there the sound died down.

Then I approached the kitchen, which then the sound grew extremely concentrated and I could feel and hear the suspense building (literally) as I approached the kitchen... Was something wrong with the fridge?

Then I thought about something.

"What if this is like some kind of trap? You know what they always say... The black person always goes first in the horror movies because they're always put in the role of being the investigational type..."

You can always get convincing arguments out of yourself when it's almost 4 in the morning...

So while standing in the crossroads again, I said to myself: "Ahh... Screw this, I'm not about to be that black person... I'm going to bed"

And then as I was turning around to go to my room, I decided to check in my parents' room just to be sure that the sound I was hearing was not in fact the sound of my father snoring... Which? It wasn't. Unfortunately, that meant something or someone else was making that noise.

But I decided not to think about it and I went back to bed. The sound finally went away and then I thought, "oh well I guess I was being a bit paranoid..."

Then after what seemed like a few minutes... the sound came back and it was across from me in my own room! In the direction of my brother's bed...

Did I anger some kind of TV spirit lurking in the television set and now it's mad at me?

Am I going to be visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and/or future?

I thought about these questions and then I turned towards my brother's bed and then I said:

"Oh God... My brother's a terminator?"

But then I guess he responded back to me like I was handicapped (I originally put something else here, but I know how some people are sensitive for these things), by snorting like this was by far the stupidest that he had ever his sleep. (My brother has a knack for detecting stupidity a mile away)

Then I decided that there was nothing to worry about... I mean the sound right now sounds like a cat purring... A really loud cat. Or maybe something vibrating? A vibrating-purring cat that can be heard through nearly all the walls of my house... Okay. See?

Nothing to worry about. I definitely hear these types of sounds all the time... Especially those of vibrating-purring terminator cats, whose main goal in life is to target only black people...

Alright... Time to go to sleep.

P.S: Oh my goodness, I think I just made up the script for a movie called: "Horror on Christmas Morning." You're Welcome.

Now I just gotta focus on surviving tonight.

P.P.S: Regardless Happy Holidays, whatever you celebrate.

P.P.P.S: Could someone tell me if this is true anyway? Are "black" people really the first one to go in horror movies? Or should I rephrase this and put "minority"?

P.P.P.P.S: Is "investigational" a word? Blogger says that it isn't, but I'm pretty sure it is...

P.P.P.P.P.S: Don't worry, your regularly scheduled post (or the one I was supposed to post today) will return shortly.

Only Halfway Halfway Finished with college, but a good break is in order... how about some Cards Against Humanity?

Okay guys, so remember when I was talking about how I didn't want school to start? Well now I'm glad that I survived finals--passing them by the skin of my teeth (those final papers almost killed me), my third semester of college is over, and I can't wait to get done with the next one and start the whole process of complaining all over again. :-o But for now, I'm just chilling and enjoying the fact that I won't have to go back to school until the middle of January.
The struggle is over... for now...

Maybe I should be more productive instead of just lying in bed, stuffed under two blankets, playing some long overdue Kingdom Hearts 358/2 days, watching endless YouTube videos, listening to Cibo Matto Albums on repeat, catching up on the new season of RWBY  waiting up on the next new season of RWBY (since I finished watching Volume 2 while writing this post lol :-D ) (check out the first season here and trailers) and updating and completing my unintentionally abandoned blog posts.

But hey, if you've been staying up hustling and studying for weeks without sleep just to pass your classes, then you'd probably be chilling now too.

Unfortunately a really bad cold has kept me under the covers and I'm doing everything from filling up on warm fluids, chugging down bottles of cough syrup to popping as many cough drops as possible like a crazed cough drop junkie in order to alleviate my symptoms at least for a while.

It's like my body kept me from getting sick all semester long, (relatively speaking, since I apparently get sick quite often) especially during and in preparation for finals week and then as soon as I sent in my final final project, I started getting chills and all of a sudden it hurt to talk.

Great timing body!

As much as I am grateful that I did not get sick when I had to take any of my exams, how about not getting sick at all so I could actually enjoy this break? I know it's a lot to ask, but why not put my feelings into consideration?

I don't understand why my body never listens to me...

Oh well, at least I was able to have bit of fun and hang out with some of my friends before the symptoms of my cold really worsened.

I got to play this really cool (but really horrible game) called: Cards Against Humanity (If you want to know more, or surprisingly don't know anything about this game then I suggest for you to click on the conveniently aforementioned highlighted link, because I try to keep things as PG as possible over here *wink, wink* Also if you happen to be under the age of 17 then I also suggest for you to either stop reading or make your parents read this to you... No seriously...)

Basically it's a game where questions are asked and the players are each judged based off of how awesomely horrible your answer is (based off of the judge's discretion).

But here are a few examples of what makes this game soooo awesome (depending on which expansion you have as provided by the main site:)

(Source: All cards via

Aren't these cards great? Hopefully I can get myself some money and go out to buy these expansions, but since I'm a broke college kid I play Pretend You're Xyzzy, which is basically the online version of Cards Against Humanity (If you don't think I'm being legit then read this buzzfeed article all about it!) 

It's exactly the same thing as Cards Against Humanity, except it's in the form of an online community and you can make up your own cards or choose ones that have already been pre-made by other awesome people (including a polish translated deck?)! Also you're playing with complete strangers... (at your own discretion because the convos in the chat during live gameplay could become pretty hot and heavy...if you catch my drift, depending on with who you play with). But if that isn't your thing (because of y'know, Stranger Danger?) then you could create a passworded group and share the password with all of your friends (granted that group of friends is made up of 3 to 10 people).

I played the game for the first time yesterday and I gotta say that I'm pretty much impressed with everything. Of course playing online can't substitute the looks of death that the players give the Card Czar when their card isn't picked, but other than that it's exactly the same. Unless of course you're these people, which of course nothing that a little access to skype couldn't fix if you're really dying for human contact.

At least over this break, as I'm currently bedridden and about chest deep in snot-covered tissues, I'll keep playing Pretend You're Xyzzy and everything-else-that-I'm-too-lazy-to-mention-again-but-already-mentioned-in-the-beginning-of-this-post.

But at least I can definitely say for now:

Gone are the days when I needed to remember what textbook to bring to class or if I needed to bring one at all.

Gone are the days when I pulled all-nighters to study, only to realize that inclement weather pushed my exam date to the week after... which was also when I had 3 other tests to study for that week.

Gone are the days when I constantly calculated what the lowest grade I could possibly get on a test was during the exam.

And gone are the days when I would come in to school only to realize that classes had been cancelled, and I still couldn't go home, because of the huge gap between my classes, AND I had nothing to do because all of my other stuff was at home.

At least temporarily...

But in the wise words of my awesome English professor: "The spring semester is a joke!"

So, bring it on Spring Semester of 2015! I can take you and the rest of your semester buddies!

But for now, I wanna chill...

P.S: Hey! If you want to play with me on Pretend You're Xyzzy my username is djbulbaczar, maybe we can play together?
