Favorite Series

Being a sixteen year old that lives just outside of town, I do not always have the opportunity to spend time with friends. Instead, I watch a lot of television. I have a very large collection of movies and shows, and I have many of the streaming apps available. I would have to say that Breaking Bad is one of my favorite television shows because it is very realistic and interesting. The situation in which the main character Walter White finds himself in is very tough, and it is interesting how much he changes as a character throughout the show.

I also enjoy comedy television shows such as Wilfred, South Park, and Rick and Morty. Wilfred is a particularly odd show about a man who overdoses on an anti-depressant, and is able to talk to his neighbor's dog as if it were a person. The main character often finds himself in sticky situations that Wilfred the dog gets him into. In every episode, Wilfred teaches the main character an important life lesson, and usually helps him with a difficult task. 

South Park is a cartoon television show that consists of satire, focusing on current events in America such as our recent presidential election. The show focuses on the main characters of four little boys who are constantly doing hilarious, odd things such as being visited by aliens or creating their own multi-million dollar professional sport. This show is funny to me because it makes fun of celebrities, as well as odd new trends in America.

Rick and Morty is a cartoon television show that features the main characters - you guessed it- Rick and Morty. Rick is a genius scientist that travels to other dimensions and does crazy experiments to further his scientific knowledge. Morty is Rick's grandson, who isn't very bright; Morty goes with Rick on adventures and keeps Rick entertained while he conducts his scientific research. The show is odd, absurd, and downright interesting to watch because it is so creative.

Favorite Music

Music is a very big part of my everyday life. I love to listen to countless different genres of music, and discovering new songs/genres is very exciting to me. The reason I like music so much is because of the always-adapting techniques used to create and spread new content. The numerous new music-based websites allow fresh, interesting ideas and musical samples to become known! The techniques used in musical tracks usually have an emotional impact that allows messages to be sent, even without purposely sending them. I personally like rap music, rock, funk, country, future funk, and smooth jazz. An interesting sub-genre that I enjoy is derived from the electronic genre, it is called vaporwave. Rap and vaporwave are my two favorite genres. My favorite rapper is Kendrick Lamar, he creatively challenges modern ideas of music and is an incredible lyricist. I will leave a vaporwave song for you to listen to, enjoy.

My Culture

I am very proud of many aspects of my culture. I feel that being an American means I am at the center of boundless entertainment. The thing about American culture is, it's a bunch of other cultures all bundled and overlapping into one. In my opinion, our entertainment options are all inspired by other cultures, especially movies. Even the music I listen to is evidently inspired by works from Japan, Great Britain, and many other places. Our food comes from all over the place as well. Heck, I can go into restaurants near me that serve burgers and Chinese food in the same place! Our culture is interesting for sure, I am proud of how diverse it truly is. There really is a place for everyone to find something they enjoy in America.

One thing I would change about my culture is the lack of compassion we share toward one another. I feel as if in our culture, it isn't common to be friendly to anyone. Most of the people I am near never let their guard down, they don't trust each other like I have seen in other cultures. Another characteristic that I see in my culture a lot is entitlement. Most feel that certain things should be theirs simply because they are American. I don't agree with this, and it bothers me tremendously. I believe we should really work hard to get the things we want, that used to be the American dream.

About Me

I live in a small town with my parents and younger sister. I love playing basketball, I hope I get the opportunity to play in college. I really like music, I love finding records that nobody else has really heard of. I enjoy making music too, I have a small "side business" where I sell music for people to sing over. I enjoy watching The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross, and making my own art is something I do from time to time. I like playing video games very much, the Metal Gear Solid series is one of my favorite of all time. I love to hunt, my dad and I duck hunt and fish on a regular basis. I really enjoy watching movies too, horror is my favorite genre... Halloween is a great cult classic to check out.
Hopefully you learned a little bit about me.

P.S I've included a song that I'm really into right now, give it a listen.
