My Epic Wall of Awesome, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and several reasons I'm a blogger INSTEAD of a Vlogger

Aloha! If you are starting reading the blog from the top-left, that means "Hello!" If you happen to be reading it backwards (What's wrong with you?) it means "Goodbye!" Either way, thanks for reading the blog. Oh, and I'd like to give a shout-out to the 5 people who I know read this blog on a semi-regular basis. Hi you 5, you know who ya are! :) Thanks for coming.

With the advances in technology, there is no longer use for 33 and 1/3 inch discs of vinyl that require a needle to play them, so what better way to remember the good ol' days (before I was born, mind you) than by hangin' up the covers all over your wall? You're right, there isn't a better way. So, here's a video explaining it, and showing it off! (It's a major work in progress) So, there's that for you. I'm hanging up record albums ALL over my room in an attempt to be amazing. So far, the only downside is Peter Frampton staring at me while I sleep... Great! I didn't even think about that until now. Thanks internet!!!

Movie Review of the Blog!

I recently went and saw Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince in theaters with a few friends. I must say, the effects of this movie were much better than the previous 5. But, let this be warning to you, if you haven't read this book yet, and intend to before reading the movie, prepare to be disappointed. Or, that's what I'm gathering from people on a forum I visit. If you haven't read the book, and go to see this movie, you should enjoy yourself (like I did.) There are, like always, flaws that I feel obligated to point out to you all. The big one, the one everyone complains about, is when the Half Blood Prince tells Harry that he is, in fact, the Half Blood Prince. It should be the most dramatic moment of the whole film, but instead, it's much more like an offhanded remark. Like they added it in just because that was the title. A more appropriate title would've been Harry Potter and the Potions that make everyone that Ingests one High. Yeah, EVERY potion that the characters take, knowingly or not, makes them act like they just snorted a pound of Marijuana or something to that effect. I would've given this movie a much better rating if it hadn't ended like X-Men Origins: Wolverine ended. It just stops! I hate it! But still an overall good movie. See it in theaters, its better that way.

If you've ever been on Youtube, you know what "Vlogging" is. Basically, it's like blogging, but for people with speaking ability. I blog because I have no interest in being tormented by the trolls on Youtube. They don't really bother me, but I have no need to fuel the troll torch. Not like they need any help with that. Wow! I got off on a tangent about trolling.

So, to the REAL point I had on vlogging. It just seems like to much effort. Vlogs seem like they need to be maintained once a week, on a strict schedule. With blogging, I don't have to stick to a strict schedule that requires me updating every single Saturday. Also, I don't have to get dressed up to blog. In Vlogs, you have to make sure you don't look like you just woke up. Well, I look like that when I blog half the time, so there's another reason. Don't get me wrong, if you are good at it, then keep doing it. There are definitely some amazing Vloggers out there, such as the Vlogbrothers. They are really awesome, and you should click that link in the red right over there. Oh, and DFTBA. That link works too. But, to put it into an analogy, Blogs:Writers::Vlogs:people good in the public eye. So, lucky for you, I'm gonna stick to blogging if that's ok. Thanks.

So, that pretty much wraps up tonight's blog. Stay tuned for more exciting blogs! If you're reading backwards OR forwards, Aloha!
