Remember last week? We showed a YouTuber that does cool magic tricks that obviously show some intellectual intelligence. This week, though, we go back to an IQ of zero. Meet Liza Koshy! A very famous comedian on YouTube with over ten million subscribers!

Like Zach King, she started on Vine and then became what she is today. Her videos contain many characters, such as her most famous character, Helga. Helga is from somewhere in Asia, drinks goat milk, and talks about how she hates Donald Trump.

Some of her comments may be mature, however, her language has never been explicit.

Liza also has a second channel called Liza Koshy Too. Which at the moment has over two million subscribers. There she does bloopers and some vlogs with David. More…

Warning: spoilers ahead! Watch the movie, or not, that’s up to you.

Well, first we need to understand the movie. The Maze Runner: The Death Cure is a movie based on James Dashner’s novels. It wraps up the storyline of the main characters.

In the beginning, Thomas and Newt, the main characters, attempt to rescue their friend Minho from WCKD, or WICKED, where he is being experimented on along with other teenaged Immunes, who are immune to a virus in which it turns humans into zombies called Cranks.

Minho is only WCKD’s prisoner because Theresa, WCKD’s evil scientist doctor, betrayed Thomas and their friends by telling WCKD’s leader, Ava Page, and head of the security, Janson, about their location after they escaped.

If you don’t know what Netflix is, it is a sort of company that has an app and website where you pay for a membership, and they let you watch many different shows and Movies, some of which that they made. Netflix is known by people almost all over the world.

Almost everyone has seen The Wizard of Oz at some point in their life; it’s a classic after all. The fantastic story of a young girl who travels into a distant and wondrous world is timeless. How could you not enjoy being able to see a girl’s ordinary life be turned extraordinary so quickly?

This timeless story might just be in trouble, though. As many already know, West Arts Productions is hosting the show The Wizard of Oz this February 1st, 2nd, 8th, and 9th. Unfortunately, though things haven’t been smooth sailing. More…

5, 4, 3, 2, 1, SCREAMMM! Oh, I’m supposed to write, sorry. Anyways, on January 8th, California Screamin had it´s very last screamers scream for one final time. Wow, that was a tongue twister. It was a sad day for many.

The reason why this attraction closed is because of the previously mentioned Incredicoaster that will be opening in Summer 2018. Very soon.

Recently, Disney released a wooden model of the inside of the tunnels (shown above), and I´ve gotta say, this is going to be so much better than California Screamin. Nobody really ever liked the boardwalk theme anyway. More…

Musical.ly Ending? Reply

Mia Grasse

It’s unbelievable, but Musical.ly may soon be coming to an end. There have been many petitions and websites displaying the thought of permanently dismantling Musical.ly.

For example, www.ipetitions.com has a petition with over 330 signatures. The creator of the petition says, “Sign this to raise awareness about how Musical.ly is a horrible, cancerous application, and sooner, hopefully, end it for good.” Taylor Mayfield, from Somerset says, “this app is horrible and kids get on there and are exposed to bad songs.”

There are many comments on these petitions shaming Musical.ly for its inappropriate nature, but others say it’s a harmless way to have fun with friends. What are your thoughts on Musical.ly possibly ending?
