    • The Gauntlet Episode 4 Review

      6 years ago

      Episode 4 of The Gauntlet was all about party games: More specifically, DDR and Rock Band. The episode started out with all three teams playing Rock Band, the team with the highest score wouldn't have to go through The Gauntlet. Surprisingly enough, Red Team (Gus's Team) won the battle making Yellow and Green team face off in, The Gauntlet. Which game were they to play? Dance Dance Revolution, of course... The way DDR was presented to the contestants would've made me crap my pants. Not because I am terrible at DDR, but because Mr. Monty Oum preformed a stellar super-coordinated dance routine, then told the contestants to impress him. The episode overall was very good, it was short and to the point, unlike episode 3. And, in the end, It was Green Team (Caleb's Team) that went home. Sad day for them. Before I go, I want to touch on the professionalism of the show really fast. The way Burnie's been acting has been off putting. I was thinking he could have been parodying other reality shows, but since it's been consistent throughout, I'm starting to think not. Other than that, I wish that the Coaches wouldn't mess with the contestants during the performances, eg. Nerf Guns, Maracas, but, oh well! Overall, a good episode, which restored my faith in the series. Can't wait for Next Thursday for a new Episode!

      Thanks for reading,

      Shannon.

      It's podcast day! This week the guys talked about lots of things, in particular throwing up. It was a good episode, featuring: Burnie, Gus, Miles, Gav, and Michael. If you haven't heard or seen it yet, I'd suggest it. I'd give it a rating of 7.5/10. Come back Thursday for my review of The Gauntlet Episode 4.

      Roosterteeth's new show (sponsored by GEICO) premiered three weeks ago and so far, it's pretty good. The show boasts a 10,000 dollar cash prize to the winner, so the steaks are pretty high. The first episode had me cringing throughout, from all of the awkward moments caused by the shows would be contestants. It had it's funny moments, and we got to see who made it through the audition round. The second episode was in my opinion, much better. It reassured me that this show wasn't going to go the route of Nature Town. In this episode four contestants who didn't really shine to the three judges were pitted against each other in a video game rumble, and the losers of the round were kicked off the show. Sad day for them. The third episode was worst than the first episode, in my opinion. I'm not sure if it was the MLG dynamic that made me hate the episode, or maybe it was because they eliminated an entire team... That seemed a little off to me, but hey, it may have been for the better. All and all, The Gauntlet has been kind of "hit or miss" for me. But, I can honestly say that I will keep watching the series. Haven't seen it yet? Well, check episode one out here, and tune in every Thursday for more episodes.

      Thanks for reading,

      Shannon.

    • What is the meaning of life?

      For my 16 years on this earth, I have always asked myself this question: What is life? Is it a cosmic coincidence, or is it all apart of god's plan?

      Well, recently, I figured out what the meaning of life is.... The answer? Stuff.

      We do stuff, see stuff, and get stuff done so frequently; it's at the center of everything... So, for now, when people ask me, "what's the meaning of life?" I won't contemplate if there's a god, or any of that shiznu. I'll just say, stuff. Your welcome. Also 42....

      I met them in person because I lived in Austin with Jack for a little bit back in 08. I guess that explains it.

      No Dope, it's not fake. This problem has been going on for a while now, she just deleted her other journals as stated in her latest one.

      L1n has been helping this community as well, she was running the group "Monty Oum" WITH Monty Oum himself! That is until she had to step down from recent events and for some reason deconstructed her profile as well. Maybe she wants to forget her past?

      She made gi_goku step up and take her place.
