Carpool Karaoke w/ Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas

This is actually the first time that I’ve ever watched an episode of Carpool Karaoke and HOBviously we watched because Hellooooo Nick Jonas! I was incredibly entertained by this though and watched this twice before bed just last night! We love you Nick and Demi seems like a girl we could probably call a homie.

Mr. Robot Season 2

Mr. Robot is one of those shows that I’ve watched the first season entirely twice and still always feel like I’m missing very important points. It’s not a show that you can have just in the background and now I’m about to watch it again for the third time so that I can know what’s going on in the upcoming second season. This is one of the few shows that I’m actually excited for this coming summer!

Sunday Learnings

Sundays are always the days when I have the most time to catch up on Yow Yow! stuff. For the past couple of weeks, we’ve been sharing with everyone little articles or videos that we come across that teach us something. It’s funny – when I was school everything I was learning felt so concentrated and it’s not secret, I was someone that got totally bored with school most times, but these days, being out of school, the things we learn just happen out of nowhere and that’s a bit more exciting to me. Here’s a video on how the Chinese take-out box came to be – turns out, it’s not from China at all!

Song of the Day

Nick Jonas – Chainsaw

2/3 songs that Nick has been releasing have been so great! We can’t wait to see what the new album has in store for us. Deemed the “most personal song” that he’s ever written, we can’t help but have all these questions about “Chainsaw.” Was this song about Olivia Culpo? Most likely. Why did they break up? What went down? Will they ever get back together? Hopefully we’ll have answers in the next couple of months!

The Accountant

Something kind of caught my eye with this trailer and it might be because it eerily reminded me of Gone Girl in some way or that it was another thriller which we seem to love. It’s not Ben Affleck though cause like meh. Here’s a synopsis below that I did not write.

The Accountant, starring Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor, John Lithgow and directed by Gavin O’Connor.

Christian Wolff (Affleck) is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King (J.K. Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.

President Obama at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner

I’m so behind on this, but I finally got to finish watching this in its entirety this weekend. I don’t know how many people actually agree with me – and it’s okay if you don’t – but I’m really going to miss Barack Obama as a president. He wasn’t a perfect human by any means because no one is, but he was the COOLEST President we’ve ever had. That’s not a requirement for being president, but that’s just how I feel. I’ve enjoyed hearing him speak and continue to be vulnerable in front of America and I still remember being in college surrounded by all of my peers who celebrated him being elected as President the first time and what an incredible moment that was to witness.

This is one of my favorite videos because I think more than ever, we get to see all of President Obama’s humor and it’s perfect.

Southside with You

How cute is this?! Someone made a movie about the love story between Barack and Michelle Obama and it’s pretty much adorable.

Ariana Grande on Jimmy Fallon

Oh my gosh and this… below. Is it just me or does her performance of “Dangerous Woman” keep getting better and better?

ICYMI: Nick Jonas on SNL

Can you believe we stayed up for this ish last night?! Of course you can; it’s a surprise we didn’t set a calendar apt for it. I realized in watching this performance that Nick does this weird thing with his mouth when he sings… anyone notice that? Whatever the case, it’s what comes out of it that matters most, right?

To Be a “Leftover” Woman in China

“People think that in Chinese society, an unmarried woman is incomplete.”

When you know the story of how your parents met when they were teenagers and how they were married in their early 20’s along with the rest of your aunts and uncles, this naturally already puts some social pressure on you. For years, I wondered if that would be me (I knew through college that it wouldn’t!) Then with every year, that curiosity starts to make you a little bit nervous. Luckily for me, in 2016 – people are meeting their partners later on in life and that’s okay! I’ve never been someone who aspired to be just someone’s wife – and I’m not saying that people who marry young are, but I wanted to spend my 20’s working really hard and focusing on my career. This meant a lot to me. However, that thought of settling down is in the back of my mind and I think others have similar feelings as well. This, I think, is normal.

Until I watched this video, I never knew about the kind of pressures that Chinese women faced when they were later on in their 20’s and unmarried. I can’t believe that there is an actual term for it; shengnu – “leftover woman.” To hear how these women’s parents were speaking out about their daughters being unmarried and what it does to them was heartbreaking. There was so much guilt that went along with it, but the video ends on a positive note and sends a very strong message that all of us can stand behind – that you shouldn’t settle, that it’s okay to be strong, independent, and have a career.

This was my favorite thing that I watched all week and really resonated with me. I hope you’ll all take the 4 minutes to watch it. :)

The Teenage Godfather of Sneakers

Short and sweet – I really wanted to see more from this video because I found it to be so amusing that this 16-year old kid is known as the Sneaker Don. Seriously, what were you doing when you were 16? Just hanging out in the local Safeway parking lot probably. I own a few pairs of sneakers – a love that was probably passed down to me by Kevin, but I could never imagine myself owning THIS many pairs. At 16, he’s selling to DJ Khaled and Chris Brown with plans to open a physical store – the first one being in Miami. Kid is really going places.

Performance of the Day

I can’t believe I’m still listening to this song. I don’t love Fifth Harmony all that much and sometimes with all the drama that I read about them, I think that they are on the verge of breaking up, but while they’re still together, we can enjoy their singles, right?

I really like this toned down version of “Work From Home.” They seem so relaxed and we finally get to HEAR Lauren! Her chorus in the actual song gets so overshadowed so it’s nice to see her get some more attention in this performance.

Ariana Grande – Dangerous Woman (Visual 1)

I’m really glad that Ariana didn’t release her album when she did because it seems like after the debut of “Focus” and how well it didn’t do, she took some time to go back and now “Dangerous Woman” is such a hit. I’m really excited for what’s to come from her on the new album and this music video of hers is great. Oh how our little Ari G has grown up from her Nickelodeon days…
