That’s right everybody “The List” is back after going on a very long break! There has been so many newsworthy stories this week and I can’t wait to talk about them…so LISTen Up!
Not a fan, but looks really futuristic!
#1) Pretty Dead Thing (P.D.T). That is right everyone, like the title of this list said, Michael Jackson is making a comeback! But it is not him himself, just his music! That would have been weird. The now five years since death pop star is releasing an 8 track album called “Xscape” that will feature the album title track along with 7 other NEW songs! OK I’ll be honest, I am very excited for this album and I KNOW it is going to sell out FAST, but O M GEE let the man rest in peace!!! There is no reason for him to be doing this album when all of his old songs will NEVER get old! IDK, but I’m sure those Jacksons are screaming because of the money his estate is about to receive from this album… Anyways! The album comes out on May 13th and best believe I will be listening to all that new music!
#2) April Fools Day 2014! So Monday was April Fools Day and when I tell you many companies went all out for the holiday, I mean they went all out! There were many companies that participated in this holiday but the two that got me the most was YouTube and Google!!! What Google did was that it tricked people into thinking that you would be able to download and app on your phone where with the help of Google maps, you could go around to different locations all around the world and see 3D images of POKÉMON!!!! When I saw this I was so excited!! Until I found out it was a joke……… This video looks so real! But, sadly Google has come out and said that it was apart of April Fools as a prank:( Dang! I really wanted to meet Squirtle! LOL. The second prank that really got me was YouTube, posting a video that ALL the videos we see on YouTube whether it be memes or popular videos were YouTube writers creating this content and hiring people to do it. It was saying that it was not really normal people doing these videos and posting them! I actually believed it too! Just the way that they did it seemed so real! I was relieved though that it was just an April Fools prank and all of those creative YouTubers are really normal people like us! Well done Google and YouTube, well done.
#3) iPhone 6! OK if any of you are like me, you cannot wait to upgrade to the new iPhone 6! Rumors say that the popular phone is set to release in early September of this year and rumors say it is going to look like this! I love it! It’s curvier, thinner and the screen is bigger! Comment below on what you all think!
ALLEGEDLY the new iPhone! I like it!
#4) Waffle Taco vs. McMuffin! OOOO so it has been getting very messy between McDonald’s and Taco Bell lately! OK so basically what has happened was that to promote Taco Bell’s new breakfast, they got 23 people whose name was RONALD MCDONALD and had them say “I’m Ronald McDonald, and I love Taco Bell’s new breakfast.” Check it out here! Obviously they were throwing shade at McDonald’s, making it seem like the face of their brand was endorsing their breakfast, when reps say that they really weren’t. Well trust me, McDonald’s did not back down, posting this on their Facebook page:
Racist or called for?
Are they saying that since Taco Bell is a Mexican restaurant, that they need to put a chihuahua in there? I kind of feel like this is a little racist. But, I also think Taco Bell had no right either to cast people named Ronald McDonald for their commercial either. I still like McDonald’s breakfast better…….so go McMuffin!! Just expand your breakfast hours please….
#5) Boxer Night! So I would l love to share something that I personally went to on Tuesday night with you LISTeners! It was a fashion show where some FINE college men walked down a runway in decorated boxers. Women also walked down the runway in fashion designed by local stores of San Marcos! It was an event that was fundraising and bringing awareness to testicular cancer, which last year 8,820 men were diagnosed with (Cancer.net). This cancer is BEATABLE, and every detection is key men!!!! Check your balls!!! ;D Find out more information here!
I am SO glad to be back LISTeners!! Thank you all so much for reading my blog whenever you can and keep on LISTeneing! Because the List is BACK! Follow me on Tiwtter if you haven’t! @malikthecray and you all have a wonderful weekend! -Malik
