Youtuber Shout-Out: Exploring America

Hey, every-people, it’s time for another Youtuber Shout-Out!  I have already covered gaming channels and urban exploring channels, so that’s pretty cool.  But, as fun as abandoned buildings are, sometimes it’s kind of nice to check out places that are still inhabited.  In fact, there are cool things all over the United States that are interesting to see, like roadside attractions, museums, and let’s not forget…Disneyland and Disneyworld!  Problem is, I hate travelling, so my chosen solution is to simply sit back and watch other people do all the work for me.  Below are my top three channels that will allow you to see all that the United States (including the famous Route 66) has to offer without ever having to leave home.

Who Will Win the Kingdom Hearts Sweepstakes?

I am a historically unlucky person.  This is not a complaint, per say, but a simple fact.  I regret that this is so, but alas, it is so very so.  I first became aware of the inexplicable animosity Lady Luck feels for me when I was a duckling, and I entered a simple elementary school-wide contest.  There were various baskets filled with goodies, and we simply needed to place our tickets on the baskets we wanted most, and the ensuing drawing would determine the winners.  Based on the number of baskets, there should have been dozens of winners, if I recall correctly.  The fact that I didn’t win anything was not the baffling part.  What was, mind you, was the strange fact that nearly every one of my friends was the proud winner of something.  Aargh, my much younger self had said.  No, I was not a pirate back then, but aargh was my unhappy response, nonetheless.

As upset as I was on that sad day back during my ducklinghood, the situation remains now an amusing conundrum more than anything.  Alas, I could be struck by lightning on a clear and cloudless day, if fate willed it!  In fact, I once fell down…probably one of the only times in my life that I fell flat on my life, more or less, and what was there to break my fall?  Why, a cactus.  Yes, a cactus.  I had to pull about half a dozen long, thick needles from my hand, and the ring finger of my left hand, which had been pierced in the joint, remained paralyzed for about a month afterward.  At the time of my unfortunate tumble, I tried to soothe my wound with a bit of water, and do you know what happened next?  I got chased by a bee.  No joke.  I think it was a thirsty bee, but either way, I did not appreciate its company in that moment.

Puzzle Wall…Meet Vintage Disney Wall!

Remember puzzle wall?  Sure you do.  You just don’t remember that you remember puzzle wall.  Ahem, well, my rather mundane quest to decorate the emptiest wall of my room has finally proven to be a success.  All the puzzles have been safely returned to their box (sniff, I miss them, but surely I’ll figure out a way to hang them up properly in the future), and my Disney posters have just arrived in the mail.  There are five of them, all vintage, 50’s-style, which I really like.  Four are small posters for the park and various attractions and the last and largest of them all is a neat Peter Pan poster.

The Duck Brings Dole Whip Home

I don’t travel very much, so whenever I learn of special treats that are not easily obtained, I usually must resort to making them myself.  One such thing was the butter beer from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, which was quite a fun treat indeed.  I actually wrote about it in a post some time back.  Good stuff.  Just high in calories, no doubt, based on the amount of butter involved in the recipe.  The most recent treat that caught my interest was Disneyland’s (and World’s) Dole Whip, a pineapple-flavored soft serve-resembling concoction which I heard about from Adam the Woo’s Youtube channel.
