If you’ve been watching this season of the NBC talent show, "America’s Got Talent", you might have noticed a unique comedian, who goes by the name of Tape Face.

Tape Face’s first audition was unexpected. You didn’t know what he was going to do. He didn’t talk and he had this look of an “emo boy” with a striped shirt, a grey jacket, jeans, and converse. He did two act segments. The first one was with the song “Endless Love” by Lionel Richie and Diana Ross and he put on two oven mitts that lip-synch the song. Then, he did an act with the 80s song “Lady In Red” by Chris de Burgh. Just look at the video below it’s easier to watch than explain.

Anyways, Tape Face made it to the judges cuts and again you kind of got an idea what he does from his audition, but you never knew what he was going to do. You were in for a surprise.

So who is this guy? Well it turns out that Tape Face has been doing shows in Europe for along time, but what’s his name? There are YouTube videos of Tape Face’s real identity, but I will leave it up to you weather you want to look him up and find out.

Tape Face’s talent is unique. He’s a silent comedian that seems to have the influences of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin. Simon Cowell has said that Tape Face reminds him of Mr.Bean.

Tape Face takes something so simple and makes it funny. He seems to use a lot of songs that are notable and everyone knows as part of his act. Tape Face is actually one of the most popular contestants on this season’s of "America’s Got Talent". He has quite the following on social media too. Fans are creating fan art of Tape Face and posting them on Instagram and Twitter. Fans are even dressing up as Tape Face.

His slapstick comedy influence is drawling in a lot new fans young and old. He’s a comedian who doesn’t have to involve current affairs or politics into his acts. He just uses audience members, random objects, and notable songs and it’s funny and entertaining. Tape Face may actually go really far whether he wins "America’s Got Talent" or not.

For a bonus, here’s his recent performance that got him to the semifinals on AGT.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
