If you're in desperate need of a laugh a 4:20 minute-long video (the first joke of the video) from David Dobrik and his vlog squad may be all you need. On July 29, 2015, David Dobrik, a successful Viner, began making his notorious vlogs. They feature his friends, usually other viners, in whatever shenanigans they get up to and skits they perform. The vlogs spiraled into a group into that is now known as the 'Vlog squad' which includes Alex Ernst, his girlfriend Liza Koshy, Scotty Sire, Toddy Smith, Zane Hijazi, Heath Hussar, Big Nik, Elton Castee, theGabbieshow (Gabbie Hanna), Jason Nash, Erin Gilfoy and Carly Incontro. All of these people have their own Youtube channels which you should check out as well. But, in David's vlogs they all come together to make hilarious content. These are six reasons why you should be watching David Dobrik's vlogs.

1. Pranks

There are always pranks in the works like when David was blindfolded and got a strip-tease from Heath while he thought it was his girlfriend Liza or when they put 1,400 pounds of dry ice into their pool.

2. Inside jokes

It shouldn't take long after watching to catch on to all of the inside jokes that have accumulated over the years of vlogging. From, “Heath hates gays” to the puns David and Liza make in Target.

3. Cute animals

The vlogs have featured many cuddly animals from Alex’s bunny Bailey, Elton’s dog Circa, and the tarantula and other animals David puts in the vlogs to surprise and scare his friends.

4. Vine and YouTube stars

Since most of the Vlog Squad came from Vine occasionally other Viners show up in the vlogs like Brandon Calvillo, Meghan McCarthy, J. Cyrus, Alx James and Ry Doon.


5. Real Celebrities

The vlogs have gained popularity and so has the star power. Recently, Josh Peck can be found in most vlogs.

6. Characters

Liza has her own Youtube channel in which she has videos of her characters which sometimes make an appearance in David's vlogs like Jet, a creepy man, Helga, a Russian or Eastern European woman. Also, Jason Nash's character Carmelita who is a hooker. He dresses in women's clothes while under he persona.


Overall, just give a vlog a try even if you didn't follow these viners because they are all hilarious people on there own and even funnier together when they collaborate in David Dobrik's vlogs.

The '50 Shades' Franchise Is 50 Shades Of Lame

What we really thought of that mind-numbing erotica
45

When the first 50 Shades of Grey book was released in 2011, I wasn't allowed to read it. My oldest sister and even my grandmother read it before I did. When I finally got around to reading it, the film was in the works, and I knew I needed to read it before it hit theaters. Let me just say this: I was not impressed.

The plot was awful. The writing was awful. Everything about it was awful. I hated how quick everything seemed to progress, from Ana first meeting Christian to their first time having sex. I hated Ana's character, her personality, her thought process- really, just her.

The idea that a god-like creature such as Christian Grey himself could fall for the blandest and most average looking woman, Anastasia Steele, was just mind-blowing. It was almost as painful as Bella from Twilight landing the vampire-equivalent of Christian Grey, with all that unnecessary teen-angst thrown in.

Then there's the sex. As erotic and sensual as it may seem, most of it sounded painful, impractical, and almost unnecessary. Jump forward to the second and third installments, 50 Shades Darker and 50 Shades Freed, and it's the same thing over and over again.

Christian and Ana need to seek marriage counseling and therapy immediately. From the very beginning of their relationship and sex contract to their marriage, Christian is nothing but a controlling and possessive sex freak. At first, readers and viewers alike are somewhat overwhelmed by Christian's ways. With the contract that he encourages Ana to sign which makes her his sex slave (or his submissive), to freezing Ana's employer's bank accounts to prevent her from going on a business trip, to his argument about Ana going out for a drink with her best friend, Christian has taken the concept of being a control freak to a new level.

The only way to fix all of their problems and resolve their arguments is with sex, of course, because no good ever came from sitting down and talking it out. As fun as it may seem to screw until you're no longer upset at one another, it does not fix the underlying issues. Anytime Ana and Christian have an argument or a disagreement or are even involved in a car chase, they have sex. Never soft, sweet, passionate sex. It's always insanely hardcore and never seems practical.

Multiple articles have discussed the verbiage that E.L. James used, such as using the word "there" to describe the location where Ana felt her sensations and the language that Christian used to speak to Ana. Some articles have gone so far as to compare Mr. Grey to a serial killer ( here and here ). I didn't come across anything remotely romantic or passionate that wasn't so heavily burdened by his dark, twisted, and often ominous tone.

Those that skipped reading the books and went straight to the films only saw the so-called steamy sex scenes filled with Anastasia's breathy calling of Christian's name. They were able to look past E.L. James' poor writing style and lack of character development, while those of us that suffered through all three books cannot forget the abomination of a "modern-day romance" full of BDSM that is the 50 Shades of Grey franchise. What a tragedy.

5 TV Shows You Should Be Binging On Hulu

Weekends were made for binging TV.
425
views

If you’re a student and have not taken advantage Hulu’s student discount, you are definitely missing out. Hulu has a great selection of TV shows, perfect for those late-night binges. Here is a list of some of the best TV shows on Hulu you should be watching.

1. "Younger"

"Younger" is such a refreshing dramedy. Watching Liza pretend to be 26-years-old is extremely cringe-worthy but entertaining at the same time. After her daughter leaves for college, Liza Miller is having a hard time finding a job in publishing and when her best friend suggests lying about her age to get a job, Liza finds herself in a world of millennial fashion trends and slang. Between heartbreaks, crazy adventures and hilariously awkward situations, "Younger" will always keep you guessing.

2. "Brooklyn Nine-Nine"

If you’re a fan of "The Office" or "Parks and Recreation," "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is a perfect fit. "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" follows the life of immature detective Jake Peralta as he solves cases with other members of the Nine-Nine. This show is all different forms of hilarious, ranging from classic Michael Scott humor to clever one-liners and laugh out loud cold opens.

3. "The Mindy Project"

"The Mindy Project" is basically a rom-com in the form of a TV show, which makes it super amazing. Following Dr. Mindy Lahiri, "The Mindy Project" is a great mix of drama, comedy and romance. The “will they/won’t they” trope is perfect and Mindy’s crazy love life is enough to make you laugh until you cry and die of secondhand embarrassment.

4. "Sabrina the Teenage Witch"

"Sabrina the Teenage Witch" is a great throwback, especially when you have no idea what you want to watch. Sabrina’s teenage awkwardness is super relatable, minus the magical powers. The best part of the series is that it’s one of those shows that manages to say good for a long period of time, making it prime for an extended binge.

5. "The Good Place"

"The Good Place" is a wild ride from start to finish. There are so many twists and turns that you never really know what’s going on. When Eleanor realizes she’s been mistakenly been put in The Good Place, she does everything she can to fit in, even taking ethics lessons to avoid being sent to The Bad Place. This show is such a gem, it’s worth every second.
