The worst article ever to appear in todays newspaper

Today i opened the paper to read this article that can only be described as a total piece of rubbish to ever grace the Internet and newspapers...
The article is in red and my comments are in blue...

Why One Direction are better than The Beatles


1 THE Beatles have never been on X Factor.
True, But a band with talent of the Beatles would not have to appear on the xfactor to be famous, plus the xfactor never existed years back when the Beatles were starting out... 


2 THE Beatles might have produced a few alright songs, but they also foisted some right howlers on us, like that walrus rubbish.
One Direction’s entire back catalogue is, unarguably, a totally perfect body of work. (OK, they’ve only released one single so far but it is REALLY GOOD.)
A year from now the people from one direction will have lost all their fame and fortune, will have been scraped by their supporters and be signed on the dole like all the other xfactor contestants from the past shows... 

3 ONE Direction only became a band after Nicole Scherzinger suggested it on the show.
The Beatles became a band without input from any of the Pussycat Dolls. Tedious.
The Beatles created their own success and worked for years to make a name for themselves, one direction have not had to work at anything to become who they are...

4 THE Beatles rushed to deliver their first album, bashing out ten of the fourteen tracks in just one day.
One Direction have spent nearly a whole year on their debut, so it’s obvious which will be the superior recording.
Times have changed and recording sessions use to cost a lot more many years ago and some of the best songs have been written in the heat of the moment...

5 WHEN One Direction are apart they always text and tweet “I miss you” to each other. The Beatles didn’t even like each other enough to stay together.
The Beatles created the music they did because of the dynamic of the group they are still the best band of the past and there records still sell today... 

6 ONE Direction call Simon Cowell “Uncle Simon.” John Lennon never even met Simon Cowell!
The meeting with a celebrity like john Lennon and a small time record producer back then would have been a waste of time and John Lennon was killed in the 1980's so i don't think they will be meeting anytime soon...  

7 THE Beatles tried other names like Johnny and the Moondogs, Long John and The Beetles and The Silver Beatles before becoming The Beatles. One Direction have always had one direction about being called One Direction.
Oh WOW how very original, the name of the band is one direction, ask someone who one direction is in a few years time and you might hear that person say: "who are they then, oh year that band that made a few songs"

8 ONE Direction’s Zayn went out with Rebecca Ferguson, who is much classier than Cynthia Lennon. During X Factor, Harry, Liam and Zayn were all linked to the same girl, and this could potentially have ripped the band apart. In other words, Cher Lloyd is their Yoko. Amazing.
Shame they didn't just split up during the xfactor then you wouldn't have written this pointless article...

9 THE Beatles were famous for their hair. Yet, no Beatle had better hair than Harry Styles, right.
The Beatles defined a era in pop culture and were icons of their time, Harry Styles hair belongs on a dog...

10 ONE Direction are the ambassadors for Pokemon. The selfish old Beatles were only ever ambassadors for themselves.
WOW One direction  promote a craze that was cool nearly 10years or so ago, 
The beatles were embassadors for the history of music and have inspired thousands of people around the globe with their music and have a following of people spanning every age gap... 

How anybody can slate the beatles like she has done should look at the facts before writting such a slap dash article that has not many interesting facts and has as much useful infomation as a chocolate teapot...
the comment made by Polly Hudson are her views and she is entitled to her point of view but when you write an article about a band like THE BEATLES that has changed the world as much as they have done you have to see that people can take your points of view as a broken and one minded look at the past and comparing it with the future and present day and this does not work as time is always different and you can not compare 2 things as easy as you have portrayed in this article...

Is YOUTUBE better than television?

This is so easy to answer: YES
How many times have you sat down to watch TV and find that the same repeat is on again and the best action movies are on late at night...

Step in YOUTUBE the greatest video service on the Internet, packed full of videos about everything...
Not only does it contain great content from people like: Charlieissocoollike, Nerimon, ijustine, Khyan1, danmann44 and many more i have no time to name at the moment..

Youtube contains better music and more tallent than the people on TV and the people on youtube seem more real than the people that go on tv talent shows...

The Great Swan Rescue


On a quiet Sunday morning around 11ish, I was called out doors by my neighbour to be greeted by the sight of a swan on the church roof at the end of my road...

we all stood round as one person rang the RSPCA who said they would be there in 40min
So while we all waited the swan just looked round and explored the edge of the roof...
But then a twist in the events lead to a shocking stunt by the swan as it jumped to the floor of the passage way below...
but luckily it was OK and it stood up...
As everybody else went about their business me an a neighbour stood there and parked a car in the way so it would not run on to the road or fly in to the telegraph poles and wires around the area...
While we stood there I took this video..
So for about an hour we kept the swan contained in the passage so it was safe..

Then the RSPCA turned up and put it in a swan bag to transport it to the local pond...

That was just 2 hours or so of my day... 
Thank you for reading...




Facebook timeline, What?... No Too far!!!!

If you have read my blog posts before you will see I am slowly hating Facebook more and more, but now that's it i have had enough of this stupid update stuff that is just murdering Facebook its like someone taking a knife and ripping the mona lisa in half.
Facebook was fine as it was it was a great website full of useful tools that helped people communicate, but now it is a busy good for nothing joke that is full of things and stuff that is just polluting the internet with crap,
if they should do anything to improve face book they should return it back to the great service that it once was...
Facebook is the new Myspace sat in the bottom of the scrapheap rotting and festering in its own toxic pool of privacy settings...
So on to the lighter note of the day GOOGLE+ is going from new kid on the block to sit on the thrown of social networks with twitter...

why did you do it facebook?

I am so disappointed with Facebook and the new changes, the appeal of Facebook in the first place was the simple layout and the way you could interact with different friends but the new layout is so packed with lists and "things" that are just there and use up space...
The extra time it takes to load the extra things is just a waste of time and the whole "upgrade" of Facebook is just one big waste of effort by the team at Facebook and they have destroyed a quality product that once was good...

the only way you will ever get back to the good times is to get rid of these "improvements" and give us back the real and useful Facebook...

Whats your views...

Google+ is it the new facebook?

The social networks have grown over the past few years and now Google have offered up their option on a big silver plate with extra side orders... GOOGLE+
And before any of you start, we have to look at the facts and the way we use the Internet for communication.
The new system by google is not the most original but still it is good, the layout and the features are easy to use and are great resources when you are just using the Internet,
The easy interaction and log in with your Google account means a better service than the Facebook log in and the Google security system is easy to understand and navigate unlike the Facebook options...
Facebook has change recently and I have found the new system less focused on simplicity and more like an excuse to fill space with "stuff", so for me Google+ is just that bit better but I will still be keeping the Facebook account for now though...
Also one thing that i have realised is the freedom of the google system as at many educational establishments facebook is banned and this is due to filters in place but these filters should not block google+ or google will not work, so for all the students that are looking for a alternative to facebook sign up to google+ today...
<p>In my view I find that google+ is going to improve the way we all communicate and it will improve the way we search the internet and how we can use the internet in our everyday lives, it is just that bit better than facebook, but it will be the internet community that will decide who wins the war of the social networks...
<p>What do you think of google+ is it better than facebook?

P.s. TWITTER ALL THE WAY...

Breaking on to youtube vlogging

If you have read my blogs and visited my pages before you would see that i have a youtube channel and i have not posted anything just yet...
The main reason for this is i have made some videos that i plan on posting but i still dont have an angle that i want to work from, I have asked myself what should i do: weekly vlog, video games reviews, gadget reviews or just talk about anything...
I have decided to do all of these things and create a show with a format of different sections so the new video should be done soon...
Then maybe in a few months if I get enough viewers I will make separate channels for my videos.

How Far Is Too Far? 20/9/11

This question should always be present in everybodies life and you should always think anything through and be careful of the consequences that may follow any decision you make... 
People will try to help people in any walk of life and try to help everyone they ever meet but we all should be aware that we can jump to conclusions and some people don't want help...
There have been cases in the past were someone has helped another person only to have it thrown back in their face and get sued for obstruction or something silly like that...
As Humans we are hard wired to do certain things and act in a certain way in situations that arise in life, but through generations of evolution and changes in attitudes we have all found different ways of coping with the everyday challenges in different ways...
Here's something to think about:
You see a friend in a situation how far do you go to help them?
I guess you would do almost anything in your power and in reasonable means to help them...
You see a total stranger in the same situation how far do you go to help them?
Most people would not put as much effort in to help a total stranger or would just walk past with no thought...
Why is it different?  
In life people should treat others as they would like to be treated...
You should be who you want to be, but realise that in life your actions should be measured by yourself  because you are the only person that kmows your own limits and know how far too far is....

Is life simple? 19/9/11

A short post today just something for everybody to think about....
if you want to add anything to this leave a comment...

We can complain about life being difficult but it is a product of our own doing?

Life is what you make it and you can change your own path in life, by changing your view of life and your outlook you can be master of your own fate and make life work in your favour...

Life is full of stress and other problems that effect our life and if we can change the bad elements of our life we can improve our health and the lives of others around us...

I can't tell you if life is simple because it is up to the person themself to decide...

PC Gaming

How many people play games on the pc anymore?
This is for a research project so leave a comment on here  if you:
Play games on the pc?
What do you play?
How often do you play pc games?
Do you own any games consoles?


why do we exaggerate?

Why do we exaggerate in life?
People exaggerate all the time and it is one of them things that never really change.
The characteristics of humans are visible to everybody, you just have to look at people and life with a different view and one characteristics is the trait of exaggeration of things in life,
why do we exaggerate things?
Here's what i think:
Life can get boring so we make it better by bending the truth...
We all want to be seen in a better light so we make our lives seem better by exaggeration...
We give ourselves a confidence boost...
We feel better if we can top another persons achievments...
So if you know why we exaggerate or you have a theory about why Leave a comment

Countdown of Christmas 17/9/11

Why has the countdown started already?
It is September and the shops are already getting the Christmas decorations out and making the window displays ready for the must have products of 2011,

The website banners and ads will be turning Christmas style in a matter of weeks and the second by second countdown to the biggest consumer holiday will begin...
There are lots of other things to happen before Christmas and we should all live for now because nobody knows what the next few months have in store...
One thing for sure is the Internet is going to be full of great offers, so keep looking out for the best offers as in these hard times when money is not at its strongest we all need to find the perfect gift for the people we buy presents for....

But we must try to look to the local producers and the small local shops that are struggling in this current climate and try to shop at our local shops and use shops that offer the unique gifts rather than the mass produced products, so when you look for the gift dont just go to the big super stores take the time to go to the local small shops and find that perfect gift...

Coffee or Tea & Side-order of Life Please 16/9/11

The age old question:  What do you drink TEA or COFFEE?

The answer is easy for me, both,

I am an avid coffee drinker and i also drink tea. I can see why this is as i come from a family background where my dads side of the family drink coffee and my mums side of the family drink tea,

This got me thinking, our life is shaped by the background of our parents, we get habits from our family and friends, we get manners and important life lessons from our parents, and many things are learnt in early life that shape what we are in life and who we grow in to in later life...

Life is one big lesson and we learn alot of lessons from the people around us, we all have influences in our lives and these are the small things that make us who we are, so we can pass on our skills and our influence on other people...

Reasons for Blogging 15/9/11

As a blogger I have reasons for spending time and creating the content for my blog and I have felt that my life has changed because of my commitment to blogging, I feel that my life is better because of my blogging and i have a more positive outlook on life...

Many people blog as a job and enjoy it but many blog as a past-time or a hobbie and enjoy it as much as the ones that are getting paid..

Blogging for money is a good way to earn small revenue and to pay for your Internet fees but many have a nice living of it...

At the moment I am going through the process of sorting tax issues with the inland revenue and sorting out a Google AdSense account, The reasons for this is to help pay off my student loans and have some extra money for when i leave university and improve my lifestyle for the better...

But  I want to know why you blog and what you think:
  • Why do you blog?
  • Who do you aim your blog at?
  • Is blogging a big part of your life?
  • Do you get paid for your blogging?
  • Is payed blogging worth it?
  • Are you signed up to google adsense?
If you would answer these just leave a comment, it will be interesting to see other people think and do...

Life lessons in media

Forms of modern media all contain life lessons and important messages that can help in every walk of life...

Television, Games, Newspapers and Books all contain the vital life lessons that everybody should know and the use of media is very helpful to improve the life of many people...

Modern media is the best thing for the future, many people that  'bash' the media by saying the following statements, are normally misundrstanding people that are afraid of change and don't embrace the technological lifestyle of today...

"Games are responsible for violence"
No they are not, games contain violence but they also contain back story that has life lessons in there as well... Read my game blog for example:
http://kvlog101game-blog.blogspot.com/ 

"Newspapers pollute our society"
No they don't, the articles in the paper are somebodies view and the reader does not have to take on that point of view they can read it as a view of another person...

"The Internet is full of adult content"
Yes it is BUT it is a resource that is more than just adult content, it is the one resource that can be used by everyone to blog, shop, research, watch TV and share their experiences with the world...

"People waste their life on the Internet "
Partly true but people use the Internet in there lives for many reason who's to say what wasting time is as a blogger i find that the Internet has helped me to improve my out look on life as a blogger...

The important life lessons and the lessons we can learn from media can range from small things like opinions to large things like respect and feelings, and everything we can learn that improves our life and makes our life what it is, These are all life lessons. 

I don't really  know how to end this post now but in reading this i hope that everyone can see that there are hidden messages in life that we can all learn from and become better people because of these messages that are around us all day every day...

what have you learnt from the media be it books, newspaper, games and television?  Leave a comment...

My internet lifestyle as a blogger

As a Blogger my life is taken up by my blogging activities and I have adapted my day around the life of the Internet Blogger...
My daily routine:
I plan a few days ahead with draft posts and publish one post a day, once published I will update my Twitter account and then leave my blog until lunch when I check my stats on blogger, then spend the afternoon filming for YouTube or planning my blog posts, before going to sleep I will check my stats again and update any detail on my draft posts,
When I wake up the next day I will do the same thing....
What a life some people would say but i feel my blog can be a help to many people to see a different point of view and to spread the word about issues people may not know about.... 

I am happy with my life and i would not change it for anything, the people from around the world i have met through blogging have been brilliant and i think blogging is a lifestyle that is like a window into a persons life that can be useful for people to see and read, as we can all learn lessons from each other...

Life Before & After 9/11

10 years ago nearly 3000 died in the twin towers and the images streamed all over the world and gripped everybody’s life and from them moments on nobody’s life was the same again…

The day of 9/11 affected everyone around the globe and people were shocked at the images that flooded the TV networks, the world seemed to stop as everybody watched the events unfold.
Losing any family member or friend is bad enough but the extra pain that the families must have gone through would have been unbearable, but life must go on and in living life to the full we honour our lost family and friends and make this world better by living life to the full ourselves for the people that are no longer living and this is the legacy of every person because People leave a certain something in our lives and it is this that makes us who we are…

I write this as a view on life and try to show how even the worst situations and disasters can have a hint of a positive effect on people can be seen as a lesson or change of lifestyle that can benefit everybody by living life with a new direction or energy to honour our lost loved ones…
I hope nobody sees this as offensive or harming to anybody, I just wanted to show that life is one big lesson that we are always learning from and show that even the darkest of situations has a silver lining even if it is a faint one… 

I mean this by giving a fresh prospective of how life can be so fragile, and undervalued but it is things like 9/11 that put everybody’s life in perspective…  

 Thank you for reading…

Good morning world: Time to log on

 GOOD MORNING WORLD: TIME TO LOG ON...
As if... Everyone knows that waking up is the hardest thing in the morning unless there is somewhere you need to be... Like work or university but even then its difficult to wake up...
But for many bloggers and Internet based workers posting and logging on early is really helpful, as posting early means getting a wider audience in other country's,
Since i started blogging i have endeavourred to get up early and post my blog for the day so everybody has the chance to read it at a sociable hour...

As a blogger I start to just type and get ideas from everywhere but when i talk about the internet i seem to get more views and this has endless stories and posibilitys for stories...

I have talked with some of the most interesting people from around the world and i think that blogging is a way to  connect with people in a positive and productive way...

Depression in life

Everybody in life has the dark times and the times when we just can't cope, people are all linked by a unseen force that effects our lives around us and people that are in a dark place can feel alone and have such problems that they can't think straight and many commit suicide...

I have never been in such a position that i have been lost in a dark place in my life but i have friends and family that have had problems in the past,
Life is controllable by one person and one person alone: YOURSELF...

Even in such times when life has closed down around us and we enter the dark state of mind you must try to remember the good times and the friends and family's that surround us, the love of friends and family, the good times from holidays, the support of your friends or your family...
We all leave a mark on everybody we meet and this is what makes us what we are as humans and who we are in our own life...
If you feel that you can't go on with life and you are depressed and living in the darkest places of the mind you must try to think positively and meet up with friends and the people that can bring you from your dark place and give you hope and strength to continue...
I hope that anybody in life that reads this can try to change how they think and improve your day and get rid of the negativity of life by living each day with a positive mental attitude...

Timeless questions

The questions that transcends life are the best questions because they have been around so long,
Some have been answered, some are rhetorical, some are just plain stupid....

Here are my favourite timeless questions:
  • Why is the sky blue?
  • Why is the grass green?
  • What is the meaning of life? 
  • Why are women obsessed with shoes?
  • Is there a god?
  • Who wrote the bible?
  • What is love?
  • Why are we alive?
  • Why do we need technology?  
There are so many more questions but from the questions above you should get an idea of the many others,
Timeless questions are here to stay, future generations will ask the same questions as you and i do now and its a circle that should never be broken....

The Internet Lifestyle

The Lifestyle of us all have changed and its all down to the greatest technological advance of the past 1000 years,

Life has got simpler as the Internet has advanced into what it is today...
This can be seen by the following actions:
  • Check your emails everywhere you go with your phone 
  • Share photos and videos with friends
  • Twitter your views to hundreds of people in one second 
  • Facebook your life to friends and family
  • Order your shopping from your sofa 
  • Have a second life online
  • Research anything and everything
  • Blog your life to the world and share your experiences with others
  • Talk with family around the world on skype
  • Work from home making money on the internet
Life has changed and we can never accept devolution in our lives as we would not cope without  the internet and the only way to go foward is to continue to use the internet in the ways we use it...

I have noticed more people read this blog when i talk about the internet, if you agree with this leave me a comment and i will try to talk more about the internet and things like that...

Blogging has changed my life

To write this blog has helped me to find focus and improve my life by looking at life in many different ways i enjoy the free thinking that i have got from the process of planning and posting my blog and i feel that i have had a better view of my own life by changing my outlook and my feellings towards subjects i would shy away from in the past,
Blogging can be liberating and life can change in a matter of weeks, i have spoken to people from around the world because of my blog and had great topical conversations with people from different cultures and countrys and i will not go back to my pre-blogging days as i enjoy the changes in my life...

The Cup Of TEA

It is the answer to everything and solves all problems...

During the blitz as people huddled together in there bomb shelters and the underground stations they all lived in fear of the German bombers, many people were in shock when they finally surfaced to see London damaged and buildings broken and lost, but being British they went to their homes with their friends and family and had the best drink in the world 'the cup of tea' and all the trouble went away...

That sounded so nice and unrealistic but in many cases this happened.
But life can always be full of problems and people will have personal problems, but nearly everything in life can be solved by drinking a simple British cup of tea....
According to science Tea is a drink that naturally will relieve stress and have a calming effect on the body...    

The people of Europe will always have there coffee and the British will always have the cup of tea as the national drink.

Humanisation of animals

People with pets and most of the world population have created this small problem where we all see animals as equals to humans and i don't disagree with this but animals have differant needs for life as from what humans require...

Recently i was talking with a friend and he asked a strange question regarding the classic phrase,

'The early bird catches the worm'   Does this mean teenage birds don't eat the first worms?
The way i view it:  It is a wild bird so why humanise it.... Its wild....
How can we make a connection between a small bird that can fly and a teenager that never gets out of bed?
Discuss in the comments.....

More to the point pet owners have humanised their pets more in the past few years:
  • Seeing their pets as children
  • Naming pets 'human' names (Theres nothing wrong with this..)
  • Dressing their dogs up (why? Its unatural)
  • Buying dog shoes (dogs have coped for years without.. so why do it?)
  • Letting pets get away with bad behaviour (would we let children be bad?)
  • Buying the most expensive food (the animal can't read the tin... do animals really need to have expensive food to eat)  
I would like to say that i dont have a problem with treating pets like humans and this blog entry was just something i wanted to highlight to start a discussion with a wider community. I have had pets in the past and they bring joy and life in to a home and become like family but at the end of the day

They are ANIMALS, And we are HUMANS
We all have different needs and we dont need to humanise animals and force our lifestyle on to our animals.

What makes the internet great?

Why is the Internet a good thing?

Many people will have asked this now and will always continue to ask this in the future,
it is a question of life that will never die and will be asked by people forever.

My view is this:
  • The Internet is freedom to express yourself.
  • The future ways of communication are in the world wide web.
  • Connecting friends and family through skype.
  • Life is simple because of the way we use the Internet.
  • As time escapes us we need a service like the internet to be able to keep up.
  • Researching anything is easy and simple.
  • Facebook, Twitter, Blogging, Gaming all are great extensions on life and should contiue to develop. 
  • Life skills of Cooking, Making things, Health advice, Gardening, Working practises, etc.. every aspect of life can be improved through the Internet by just reading a few articals and watching education videos these can improve your life for the better.
  • Emails, Skype, Social Networking: all these are the best ways to communicate with everybody and we will never lose contact with the friends you know, (this could be a bad thing or a good thing).
  • Everybody leaves a mark on eveybody, we are who we are because of the people we meet, the internet means we can meet new people and expand our own knowledge through these people and ultimately grow as humans by meeting these people on the internet.

Slaves of the internet

The Internet is everywhere and everyone uses it in some way in there life. For work, shopping, research, procrastination... and the many other uses of the Internet we all use it in some way and it has become the cornerstone of modern day life and we all know everybody will never be able to live without it. 

We all know it will never be easy to just log on and check your emails because there are too many distractions like the emails sent by friends containing youtube videos of dogs, cats & just strange things ....
   
You log in to your workstation/ desktop pc/ laptop and nearly everybody logs on to facebook... why?.. we have become slaves to the social network and it is just silly, people need to realise that this is not a good habit. 
Starting reaserch for a project can be difficult and many people use websites like Youtube and Google to get started and this is ok but these websites are evil and procrastination will always follow your first few searches.
Many people will be in denial about being addicted to using the internet. Even when many people have spent hours watching videos and searching their own name on google when they could have been more productive away from the computer in the real world.   

Twitter is very popular and it is a great service to sign up to and to follow some funny comedians and great thinkers of the modern age but it still becomes another website in your bookmarks but well worth looking at.

At the end of the day we should not complain about the internet and we should embrace the future and live with the internet as a resource that is accessible to everybody and use the internet for improving life rather than just using the internet for minial tasks and wasting time.
We are always in control of our life and we can change how we think and work and everybody should be able to do anything they put there mind to and if the internet is a problem for people they have the power to change their ways they use it.

Student life and helpful advice

The life of a student is set to get harder next year, with the rising fees and unjustifiable entry requirements.
In my view and think many will agree with me:
"Education is the biggest part of everybody's life and is the key to the future developments that will shape the future of this earth"

I have been studying at college and university since leaving school in 2007 and will never regret my decisions in life when i consider my life and my education.

If you are lucky like me and this is you final year at college or university "congratulations",
But from my past few years of study I wish to give some advice to the people that will suffer under the new university fees.

so here we go:
  • Get a Student or High Interest Bank account  
  • Keep all your paperwork in a folder: Bank documents, statements, UCAS paperwork, student finance documents, etc...
  • Keep records of your spending up to date
  • Get a part time job or a summer job (if you can)
  • Look at several Colleges & Universities. Many offer better courses than others.
  • Look round the Universities and check the facilities they have.
  • Look at Alternatives to Universities: many Local Colleges offer University Degrees. Fees are alot cheaper and courses are as good as the main universities.  
  • You will spend plenty of money on student accommodation each academic year so be careful with your spending
  • Do your research and be prepared
  • Put money away each week into an account so you have money to pay off your loans.
Yes this is not a complete guide, This advice was passed on to me from many people and places and my own experiences the advice has helped me alot in these past few years and i hope this advice can help any students in these increasingly hard times and the future to come.

Thanks for reading...
Leave a comment and any helpful advise you think will help students of today.
