How Ice Cream Sandwiches Are Made

These are always some of my favorite videos mostly just because I find them to be fascinating. There’s always a box of ice cream sandwiches in my freezer so this was very relatable to me.

RIP Christina Grimmie

We were deeply saddened to learn last night that Christina Grimmie was shot and killed after her concert while signing autographs for fans at her Orlando show. She was shot several times by a deranged fan who had traveled from another city in Florida to kill her – armed with two guns and a hunting knife and with the hope that he could get away after an incident like this. During the shooting, the gunman was tackled by Christina Grimmie’s brother and in the altercation the gunman then shot and killed himself.

To hear about her death last night was not only heartbreaking, but left us feeling confused and cold. Christina was just 22 years old with a whole life ahead of her. If you’ve been following Yow Yow! for a long time, then you know that we blogged about her back in 2010 because of her YouTube covers. They were phenomenal. She had started filming her covers at just 15 years old and back then and even up until yesterday she was a positive, energetic, and spritely young woman. Christina later on went to compete on The Voice where she ended up taking 3rd place – a really big deal for her fans. I still remember being glued to my TV that season and rooting for her every step of the way.

I think another reason why I adored Christina so much was because she was also a scene kid. She reminded me of myself and my friends at that age and she had no problem admitting that she was super nerdy. Her YouTube username is, zeldaxlove64, after all.

Christina tragically died last night giving back to her fans in a setting that was supposed to be memorable, exciting, and overall a happy moment. I was attending concerts regularly by the age of 15 and back then I remember showing up early during load-in and staying a little bit later after the sets of my favorite bands so that I could talk with the band members. Never in my life did I ever think that anything dangerous or life-threatening would happen in that moment. This gunman took away the life of someone who cared so much about their fans and also ruined this experience for her fans who will always remember this moment as something that ended in tragedy. RIP Christina Grimmie.

Music Video of the Day

We’re pretty much just posting this because we like the song, but the music video for “Company” highlights a behind the scenes look of Justin on tour. Doesn’t this just make him seem like the opposite of all his media stories?

This Remix Though

So how do we feel about this guys? Doesn’t it feel like it needs more Drake and a little less Biebs? I’m sure it’s something that can grow on us, but for now I’m pretty lukewarm.

The Real World Back in Seattle

The Real World is bringing things back to Seattle for Season 32 and more specifically to my old neighborhood of Capitol Hill. They are going to be right on the street that I lived on and it’s actually the prime place to be. Capitol Hill has changed a lot since I last called it home, but it’s the perfect environment for any young 20-something that doesn’t know what they’re doing in their life and needs to be on a reality show. What exactly is the recipe for that? Hip bars within walking distance, trendy restaurants, and a bunch of bros that have invaded my favorite neighborhood. Oh sorry, does this sound negative? I’m not even going to be there, but I am very much looking forward to this season as long as it pays homage to the original Seattle season. Janet was always my spirit animal – we were so much alike except for the smoking.

The Real World used to be such an iconic show and one that I have watched through the years, but as of late – things have gotten a little weird. They bring in the exes of all of the housemates to live. with them. and they all hook up with each other and it’s crazy. Also, they don’t seem to have jobs anymore, which is something that I really appreciated because that seems pretty realistic doesn’t it? To have a job in your 20’s? Here’s hoping that Season 32 goes back to their roots! (though I’m not holding my breath)

China’s Most Racist Commercial

I was absolutely floored when I viewed this commercial earlier this evening. Already, it has been viewed over 4 million times and that’s probably because it is┬ácompletely┬áridiculous. It has been awhile since I have posted anything this controversial and I went back and forth for a few minutes wondering if I even should at all, but then I remembered that college me probably would’ve posted this and ripped it apart without any hesitation and we never want Yow Yow! to become soft or just fluff. So let’s talk about this commercial for a second.

There’s so much wrong with this video, it’s almost tough to figure out where to begin. Here are my issues with it:

  • Why does the black man in this ad have to come in with stains on his face and shirt whistling at the woman? This is playing into the stereotype that black men are more sexually aggressive towards women and that’s not okay.
  • The woman then puts something into this mouth (detergent) and then proceeds to shove him into the washing machine – looks to be kind of like in a violent manner if you ask me.
  • Lastly, he comes out of the washing machine no longer black, but now a light skinned Asian man. He also happens to be so clean (stain-free) and so white.

Nothing about this commercial, made by Chinese detergent brand Qiaobi, is okay. It is difficult enough to have to still in 2016 watch acts of racism occur in our own country and while I’m not naive in believing that this doesn’t happen outside of the United States, it still is very disappointing to see this.
