ANNOUNCEMENT: YouTube Channel!!!

Good morning everyone…welcome to MikeyMix! This blog post is going to be very short but I’m just making it to let you all know I’ve recently started a YouTube channel!

The channel itself doesn’t have a specific genre so there’s something for everyone. 

The reason I made a channel is to attract a new form of audience and get the MikeyMix brand on another distribution channel.

I’ll link my first three videos below, any and all feedback is welcome and it would be highly appreciated if you could like and comment on the video and maybe even subscribe to the channel?

Until next time: stay safe, be happy and keep on jamming!!

Once the Vlogging Stops: Insomnia60 MY EXPERIENCE

Good morning again readers, welcome to today’s second blog post: as promised in my review of ‘The Cure’ by Lady Gaga (which can be found here) I am going to be discussing my experience at yesterday’s Insomnia60 Gaming Festival.

As I believe in fairness I am going to be discussing all the positives and the negatives of the event, I’m expecting this post to be quite a long one so I’ll include a read more link below, however I do recommend reading because it’s going to be good and will definitely be quite eye-opening to some readers.

I’M HEADING TO INSOMNIA60!!!

Good afternoon readers!! Welcome to MikeyMix! This blog post is going to be very short and very sweet, if you’ve read the title of this blog post or my review on ‘Still Got Time’ by ZAYN, then you’ll already be aware that I am heading to Birmingham tomorrow (Saturday April 15th) to check out Insomnia60 Gaming Festival.

I’m hoping to run FIVE stories for the event: ‘Going Viral: The Rise of YouTube Gaming Stardom’ (working title), ‘A World Within Our Own: The Advancement of Virtual Reality’ (again, another working title), ‘Insomnia60: The MikeyMix Experience ft Dan’s Cam’ (Daniel is my little brother whom will be coming to the event with me, he’s a huge gamer so it would’ve been foolish for me not to bring him), ‘Insomnia60: What The Fan’s Think’ and finally ‘How To Survive: Insomnia60’ (a new series I’m thinking of running is a ‘How To Surive…’ series in which I basically discuss how to fully enjoy specific events).

Minecraft YouTuber/cover artist TheOrionSound and a representative from VR developers Coatsink have very kindly agreed to speak to me during the event (very excited for that as I love conducting a good interview), if anyone reading this wants to come and have a chat for me to be involved in some of the posts I’ve got planned feel free to! It doesn’t matter whether you’re a YouTuber (no matter how big or small), gamer or just a general attendee come say hello and I’ll gladly hear what you have to say (I’ll be sporting a very fashionable “Press” pass so you shouldn’t miss me!).

Don’t forget to follow me on instagram: @MikeyMixBlog and feel free to add me on Snapchat ‘mikeymixblog’ were I’ll be documenting the entire event tomorrow!

So until next time: stay safe, be happy and keep on jamming!!

Bart Baker: “Celebritease” – REVIEW

Good evening readers, welcome back to MikeyMix! I understand it’s been a couple of days since my last blog post and for that I am sorry (university assignments have taken up a lot of my time these past few weeks).

Minor absence aside lets begin the review! Tonight’s review will be on the album ‘Celebritease’ by YouTube parody artist and musician Bart Baker.

The album which was released today (March 1st) consists of 8 tracks all of which reference a celebrity in some way or another.

The track listing is as follows:

  1. Taylor Swift
  2. Calvin Harris
  3. Kimye
  4. Justin Bieber
  5. Ariana Grande
  6. Drake
  7. Future
  8. #DWBD (Don’t Worry Bout Dat)

Baker provides all the vocals for the tracks and the album definitely stays true to his style: parody and comical.

I would definitely consider this album a form of parody/satire as throughout Baker shades (makes fun of, disrespects, jokes about) the artists: whether it be via lyrics or imitating their generic style.

My favourite track from this album has got to be either the tracks ‘Ariana Grande’ or ‘Calvin Harris’ but that is only because I like the beats of both tracks (the lyrics aren’t very smart and definitely not worth praising).

Overall thoughts: I am not the biggest fan of this album, I had low expectations (I’m never usually the biggest fan of YouTuber projects) and I was still quite disappointed.

I have been a big fan of Baker‘s parodies for many years and so I expected more from him as I know he can do much better.

I will be giving this album a 1 out of 5 star rating.

‘Celebritease’ is available to buy on iTunes and available for streaming on all streaming sites: Apple Music, Spotify and Tidal.

Until next time: stay safe, be happy and keep on smiling!!
