Spooky…

You guys know me, right? Then you know that I joined the iCarly fandom on March 26th, 2010.

And you might also know the story of my two friends, Natalie and Steven. If you don’t, here’s the link.

Turns out that they became a couple on March 26th, 2010. On the exact date that I joined the fandom.

Natalie recently saw iOMG and said “it feels like I’m watching the beginning of my relationship.”

Now: considering everything in this world that we don’t know, is it possible that the ‘powers that be’ made sure I was in front of the TV with my brother on March 26th, to show me iSpeed Date and make me join the fandom, so I could make a difference?

Food for thought…

Generation Love Review

Since many people wanted to see Jennette’s new video and Nickelodeon didn’t comply, I decided to do something.

Post AND review Jennette’s video.

I’ll analyze the lyrics and the video itself.
Now, this is something that I have never done before so, if it’s bad, don’t sue me.

Here’s the video:

We start by seeing a city landscape, followed by a guy skateboarding and a girl holding a balloon with a heart on it.

“I found a picture of my mother in her bell-bottom jeans.
flowers in her hair, two fingers up for peace.
In that Polaroid she smiled,A grown up baby boomer
Maybe momma walked down the wild side, walking on the moon
What will they say about us”

The feeling I get from this part is that Jennette compared her mom’s generation it hers.
Her mom was influenced by the hippie movement (“Two fingers up for peace”)

“I’ve heard stories about my grandpa
child of the great depression
how growing up broke creates and deep and dark impression
He sits in a rocker, down at the veterans home
even when I go to visit he still rocking all alone
What will they say about us”

Here, she goes and gets another example of the clash of generations.
Her granddad must have fought on the WWII, (“He sits in a rocker, down at the veterans home”)

“They call us generation lost
Or generation greed
Or the connected generation to a plasma screen
or a generation why enough is not enough
Or maybe they’ll call us… generation love
Generation love”

This is what she thinks the older generations think about the current generation, a generation where everything is still not enough, where everyone is fending for themselves, where its youth is too dependent on technology, yet a generation that holds the ability to love unconditionally.

“We are children of divorce
Victims of dysfunction
We spell check of course
And GPS the proper junction
We’ve gotten pretty good
Shifting all the blame
But I think I hear an old song
Calling my new name
Generation love”

If I understood this part correctly, this generation has problems that the previous ones haven’t faced. And we became masters of saying, “it’s not my fault, it’s someone else’s. It always is.”

“Not generation lost
Or generation greed
or the connected generation to a plasma screen
or a generation why enough is not enough
Or maybe they’ll call us
Generation love”

Now she’s sure of how we’ll be known for the next ones.

“Ohhhh generation love
and when they open up our time capsule
a hundred years from now
Maybe they’ll look inside
And see we figured out
how to live for less and give ourselves away
just maybe they’ll call us,
Just maybe they’ll call us
Generation love”

Here is the “calling card” of our generation, so to speak. Give love in order to receive love. Like Bob Sinclair says.

“We are a brand new generation on the rise
Generation love
We are a brand new generation on the rise
Generation love
Ohhh generation love”

Honestly, I don’t think there are words to explain this line, so I’ll just copy it. “We are a brand new generation on the rise.”

Now, the video.

I don’t really watch that much music videos, but I know when one is well made. And this one is.
The city skyline, the people with the balloons, the people with the signs, all of that conveys a message. That this generation has so much to offer, and that the best is yet to come.

The camera work when Jennette in on the building is something that reminds me of videos by Christina Aguilera or Jennifer Lopez. A lot of movement, yet kept under control, to highlight the message the video conveys even more.

Overall, the young actress/singer did it again! (I’m only 3 years older than she is, I’m speaking like an old man.) She found a way to make a wake up call for our generation and, in my view, that’s what this song is.

You rock the Earth, Jennette! Hope to see you soon!

My lame attempt at an apology…

Hello, guys.

As you may be aware, I’ve recently posted a blog post where I said a bunch of bad stuff about the former staff member of the Creddie Fans forum, Sockstar.

He’s an extreme shipper, and that’s not gonna change.

But sometimes, people point flaws on other people without first admitting to their own mistakes. It’s clear by now that I did that.

However, I recognize mine.

I’ve copied a few threads (2, to be exact) from the Creddie forum.

I don’t even remember why I did it, but I did it.

So, Sockstar, if you happen to read this, and chances are you will, my apologies.

My apologies to anyone who was offended by this blog post.

I hope one day we can look back at this and laugh. Or maybe not. But we should put this behind us, before it all falls apart.

Set some things straight…

Hey, guys.

I know a lot of you read my iOMG review (which can be found here) and have been jumping into conclusions about what I said about episode #401.

I said that it’s called “iLose My Mind” and that it’s airing on July 9th.

Well, none of those things are true.

The title is a fake title Dan posted a while back, and July 9th is a date based on statistics.

I’m sorry if I lead anyone into believing it, but it was clear it was not true.

I mean, where would I get a time-travelling Delorean?

Anyway, I have no way of knowing whether the title of the next episode will be or the date it will premiere in.

Again, I’m sorry.

RobSp1derp1g out.

RobSp1derp1g’s Seddie Fic Challenge

I’ve been thinking about iStart a Fan War, (which happens to precede iOMG in production) and I wanted to read a fanfic from a Seddie fan’s point of view.

So, I decided to make a Challenge!

I want you to write a fanfic about Seddie using only your imagination, the iCarly videos from iCarly.com and the iCarly segments from the show.

Here’s what you can’t use: any off-screen iCarly webshow footage.

I prefer Humor/Romance stories. Just so you know.

As for word limit, there is none. Make it as big as you want.

The best three will be published here.

Get your thinking caps on!

Rob out!

This is getting better!!

Since I’ve been in the iCarly business, I’ve never really been much of a bigshot.

This blog made me become known on the fandom, but this changed everything.

Maclean’s magazine quoted me and mentioned my blog.

iOMG review – From the future

*two flashes of light followed by two trails of flames on the ground*
*lots of smoke and the sound of a door opening*
*coughs by two people*

Rob: Holy chiz, Doc! I still can’t believe he said that! Thanks! Now that I know this, my life has changed.
Doc: You know, Rob, you can’t tell anyone about what you’ve seen! If you do that, the space-time continuum will collapse!
Rob: Don’t worry, Doc, I won’t. If I need to go back in time, I know when to find you.
Doc: Take care, Rob!
Rob: You too, Doc! You too!

Hey, guys! This is RobSp1derp1g, straight from the future! To those who believe me, good. To those who don’t, check this out!

iOMG is an appropriate title…

…however, I’m feeling down.

If you doubt my motives as a Seddie Warrior, look around you. I wouldn’t have built this if I wasn’t a full fledged Seddieshipper.

The reason for me being down is different. I’m jealous.

No, not jealous of Nathan (well, i guess I kinda am, but that’s not the point). I’m jealous of all the Seddieshippers who got to see it first-hand.

I was watching the episode, and I didn’t see the kiss. I know it’s not your fault, but I am… The damn stream had to fail right then…

I don’t know what to do, that’s all…

I’ll try to sleep it off.

The written review should be out tomorrow.
