Miss McCurdy, if you are reading this, it means you got the message Kenny gave you. First of all, thank you for being such a great artist and for being a such role model to your fans.
Second, I have one project that I think you might like. For the past 4 years, I’ve been collecting music to make a compilation for people to listen. I have in it such names as you, Taylor Swift, Jesse McCartney, The Beatles, Elvis Presley, The Script, Plain White T’s among others.
My main goal is to have this collection published and have most of the money given to charity and foundations, like the Cody Waters Foundation.
So that you might have a small sample of this collection, here are some of the songs that I intend to insert:
All About Lovin’ You – Jon Bon Jovi
Because You Live – Jesse McCartney
Burning Love – Elvis Presley
Crash and Burn – Savage Garden
Far Away – Nickelback
Hanging By A Moment – Lifehouse
Hey Jude – The Beatles
Hey There Delilah – Plain White Ts
Our Time Now – Plain White Ts
How Deep is Your Love – Bee Gees
I Still… – Backstreet Boys
Lovers in Japan – Coldplay
Only One – Yellowcard
Right Here Waiting – Richard Marx
Rule The World – Take That
Something That You Said – The Bangles
Teardrops on My Guitar – Taylor Swift
Thank You For Loving Me – Jon Bon Jovi
The Man Who Can’t Be Moved – The Script
Together in Electric Dreams – The Human League
And leave the best for last:
Put Your Arms Around Someone
Me With You – I think you know who sings these.
There are a lot of other songs I want to use, but you should see the potential of this project from this “short” list.
If we can pull this off, this will definitely be known as “Generation Love”. (Sorry, had to do that…)
What I want to know is, when I go to the US, can you help me turn this vision into reality?
If you want me to contact you, please feel free to leave an e-mail address as a comment. All comments are moderated, so I can edit them before they are made public.
Again, thank you. For everything you’ve given us.
One of your biggest fans,
Roberto ‘RobSp1derp1g’ Coutinho
My name is Rob. I’m 21 years old. For at least 7 of those 21 years I was bullied to desperation. My self-esteem vanished before those 7 years were gone. If anyone saw me, they wouldn’t be able to see me, they’d only see a guy on a routine, with a blank expression on his face…
While at first this post may sound like a suicide note, I can assure you this is not one.
I’ve never been that much of a religious man, but I do believe there is something above. While I call this entity God, others may not, so I prefer to play it safe and not argue about it.
For 4 years now, I’ve been into lots of stuff. Be it Pokémon, iCarly, Prison Break, Flashforward, you name it. For a while now, I’ve been online a lot, and when I say it’s a lot, it’s A LOT.
It is said “ask and you shall receive.” Well, that is true. I asked, and I received. A way out.
June 20th 2006. The day my life changed.
I was living a routine, like every other Sunday, when it was shown to me on the news. “The Secret.”
I wasn’t expecting much of it, but curiosity forced me to find out more about this Secret.
I researched and within 30 minutes, I had a copy of the book. (Won’t say how, you won’t like it.) It blew my mind apart.
Every single thing on my life made sense for the first time in a long while.
Then, I got the movie. Watched it. If my mind had been blown away before, this movie was like an atomic bomb to the pieces. It lifts you up. Really.
You see, The Secret tells you that what you imagine, given the proper emotion, will be obtained in real life. But you have to feel good NOW.
Let me back this up with quotes from famous authors.
“See the things that you want as already yours. Know that they will come to you at need. Then let them come. Don’t fret and worry about them. Don’t think about your lack of them. Think of them as yours, as belonging to you, as already in your possession.” Robert Collier (1885-1950)
In 1912, Charles Haanel described the law of attraction, The Secret, as “the greatest and the most infallible law upon which the entire system of creation depends.”
“The predominant thought or the mental attitude is the magnet, and the law is that like attracts like, consequently, the mental attitude will invariably attract such conditions as correspond to its nature.” Charles Haanel (1866–1949)
“The vibrations of mental forces are the finest and consequently the most powerful in existence.”Charles Haanel (1866–1949)
I made this post specifically for one thing. To prove to one person that his dreams are not impossible.
Previously, I said I’m online a lot. And I joined a lot of other fans of a TV show on Twitter. These fans are human beings, with hopes and dreams of their own. But there is one who sticks out, not for the best reasons.
This guy, who I’ll call Jimmy L., is one of the most hardcore fans of Star Wars I’ve ever seen. He says he’s in love with a actress, named Jennette McCurdy from a TV show we’re fans of. He constantly reminds us (me and other fans) that he wants to meet the actress/singer and announce his love to her.
He is 21, like me, but looks a lot younger, due to Crohn’s Disease. Had 2 near-death experiences, and his self-esteem is lower than the vaults of Fort Knox. I’m exaggerating, but it’s true.
Since March 2010 (when I joined Twitter), this guy has had a negative mindset about meeting Jennette. Every time she has an event on NYC, something happens, because in his mind he’s not ready to meet her.
Last December, he was radiant, he was on top of the world, because he had the possibility to go on a cruise Jennette was going on. As soon as he thought “What if I can’t go?”, the figurative-pedestal he was standing on collapsed. He was bummed beyond bumming standards.
Recently, he heard of another event in NYC. Guess what happened.
All this time, I’ve said one thing to him: “I’m gonna meet her. I’m gonna meet her.” He’s reaction was only, “How can you be so sure?” I believe it tore him apart inside. But there’s one thing. If there has been anyone beside you, Jimmy, it’s me. And I say to you, “how can you not? If you’re not sure of something, that will not happen!” Every time someone says to him, “be positive, don’t be like that,” his reply is, “how will be positive help me meet Jennette?” And another person says “Good things will happen if you’re positive.” Reply: “Will any of those good things help me meet Nettie?” His mindset is set on negativity by default, but he doesn’t do anything to change…
So here’s the bottom line. I’m not forcing you to believe me. I’m telling you to take a leap of faith, believe in yourself and try to be positive, Jimmy. Things will go a lot better when you’re positive.
Guys, I’m not asking for charity here. I’m just letting the world know of this guy because I’ve tried my best, and still accomplished nothing. Please, PLEASE, help me help him.
If this was something funny, I’d end with a joke, like I usually do, but it isn’t…
Please, if you want to contact me regarding this, please go here and e-mail me. Please make sure the subject line is “Don’t worry, be happy!” so I know what’s it about.
Thank you for your time.
Hello, my faithful readers! I bring you gifts!
The first gift is the gift of… of… Oh, it’s a sneak peek for iHire an Idiot.
Check it out, guys!
EDIT: Two more were obtained, here they are.
The B-plot, involving Spencer:
“Here I am, this is me, there’s nowhere else on Earth I’d rather be.
Here I am, it’s just me and you, And tonight we make our dreams come true.”
By now you guys must think, “this guy is always singing”. And you’re write! Sii? Wehn I sing, I mysipte wrods.
You guys were brought here for a reason, that reason was, most likely, to read my speculation on the upcoming iCarly episode “iHire an Idiot”.
Here you can see the video in it’s uncut edition, although the cut edition has no difference whatsoever.
First, we just saw a promo. A promo means we get to see new footage from the new episode. This is not the case.
This is a promo about celebration after not seeing iCarly for 2 months (“THE HARDEST TWO MONTHS OF MY LIFE!!!”).
We saw absolutely nothing new, except for this.
An image with iHire an Idiot written on the screen with the O replaced with a heart and that heart being stabbed with a Cupid’s arrow. You know Cupid? That little guy’s evil!
My thoughts on this: Well, I can’t really think at this moment. But I’ll edit this post tomorrow when I do have a clearer mind so that I can dissect this mystery-filled promo in search of the almighty Seddie.
The eyes of the iCarly fandom are now looking upon us. Godspeed, gentlemen.
EDIT: Well, the heart with the arrow across it, makes me think… It is a fact that Sam and Carly will find Cort cute (what other reason would there be for them to hire him?) And the possibility of a serious conversation only strengthens that.
Conclusion: I, as well as most if not all of the iCarly fandom, am excited about this episode, and I’ll be reviewing this episode once I see it.
YET ANOTHER EDIT: This promo came out last night:
As I know some people will do, I think this is too early to label this episode as a Creddie one or a Seddie one. We need to see it first.
But, like @Seddiemania says: Watch iCarly for the comedy, not for the shipping.
Seddie. It’s not a ship, it’s a lifestyle.
