A hot diggity dog LAY-#23

Hey guys wassup

Today it is time for Life and You, the series where I ask you stuff and I talk about my life.

But you aren’t here to talk about the format, you are here for a healthy does of

Image result for literallyImage result for myImage result for life

The segment desperately in need of some new visuals for ‘my’ and ‘life’.

This week my Tip Lifeweek my Tip Life was delayed for my special announcement (the nerd and his brother returns september 1st on soundcloud and itunes soon also website nerdandbrother.com shameless plug) and then it somehow backlogged on to the original day, while saying sorry its saturday, and 3 days into posts. That’s all fixed but still its crazy.

Other than that school has been fine, I recently forgot about a project until 45 minutes before it was due. The result was amazing *sarcasm* and the grade is pending *not sarcasm*.

Also for labor day I went to the lake in Alabama. I don’t know why I said the lake like people reading this know the lake I’m talking about, but all you need to know is that I visited my grandparents, had a super time waterskiing and eating hotdogs. Seriously, lots of hot dogs.

I have been writing a Pokemon post for about a month now and I keep delaying it because more stuff happens, but now I can say that Friday will have that post.


That concludes literally my life..


So I know YesterLAY I asked you for your most inventive ways to eat an oreo but I’m saving that for next LAY ( I have a reason) So today I will just cover another question from riseofthechairs..

riseofthechairs asks 

 you’re running late to class, but wait! there’s a dog across the street. you realize you have to make a difficult decision. what’ll it be? be late or PET DOG

I read your question carefully and the options laid out were be late OR pet dog. Given this set of choices I choose to pet the dog and not be late for class.

If you meant ‘be late and pet the doggo’ or ‘miss the doggo and be late for class’ I have to think about this.

See, if I pet the doggo I could miss class and get punished. But if I decide to pass up the petting, I could miss out on the opportunity to pet a dog. Luckily there is an alternate universe created every time anyone makes a choice so I will go to class and hope that alternate dimension jamie enjoys petting that dog. Also that he learns the meaning of summer.Image result for phineas and ferb movie

yep that is my second phineas and ferb reference in a LAY in a row. Who knows, I might keep the streak going.

So I want to ask you a couple of things.

  1. Continue with your inventive Oreo eating methods
  2. Please tell me other things you want Fav Fiv-ed (ranked list of things)
  3. Please more my and life images for Literally My Life
  4. as always, questions and challenges for me to do in the next LAY.


Thanks in advance, and now I shamelessly plug all my other stuff.

Nerd and Brother Podcast!

If you didn’t know me, my brother Eliot, and Riley have a podcast where we play games, do quizzes. Regardless our website has all the info you need including podcasts episodes on SoundCloud and iTunes. So that is here!


Okay, so click here for all of my posts on Rileys Backpack.

And here for all the LAYs.

Most recent post is here.
So again thanks for reading and not unlike what I whooped with joy when I finally started skiing:

please stop it with the snapchat hotdog already. no joke here. just stop.

Death LAY-#22

Sup dudes. Lets catch a wave straight into this tubular post bro.

10/10 Would Intro Again

Image result for welcome giants phineas and ferb

and welcome to Life and You.

If you are new here basically I talk about my life and interesting things, then I take comments and questions from you. Plus I ask you questions every post.

Since that seques into questions I’m just gonna THROW OUT THE RULE BOOK and do those first.

Last week I asked (in poll form) what length of post you read.

8 people say that they read all posts, and that just warms my heart. 1 person reads shorter posts, which I understand. If you haven’t lost interest in this post yet, I would wait for Thursdays post :).

And I was going to say something to the one person that just scrolls down and likes the posts but they obviously aren’t reading this soooooo……………………………………

riseofthechairs asks:

there’s a black notebook ominously titled “DEATH NOTE” in front of you someone seemed to have dropped. you look around, but no one else is there. do you leave it there, or do you take it home and become the N E W G O D O F T H I S W O R L D ?

Now I was tempted to pick up this book and create a world free of crime where solely I decide who lives or dies, but that got me thinking.

  1. Who dropped the book?

I am definitely not taking the chance that a Shinigami with an apple addiction dropped it. What if they follow me without anyone else seeing for their entertainment. Because what if we talked? Became friends? They would watch my decent into madness with glee. No, not madness. Enlightenment.

2. What would the book do?

From the title it seems like you would write down the names of people and then they would have 40 seconds before they died. Maybe if you didn’t specify they would have a heart attack. But what if you did specify and you put shark attack. Would a shark just randomly attack them? I guess I just have the write reasonable deaths in there. But then also what if there were multiple people with the same name? I guess the book would have to sense the face along with the name that you are thinking of murdering. But what if my killings attracted the attention of a world renowned detective that somehow had a person pretend to be him and then I write down that persons ‘name’ killing him and confirming that I am the killer? I guess I would need a pseudonym. Maybe Kari.

This book seems pretty dangerous, so I would NOT pick it up.

hehehe jk, I know this is a reference to everyone’s favorite anime attack on titan.

Thank you so much for your question, and if anyone else has a question just comment it.

Okay now life.

Literally my life 

My LML intro uses a less is more approach.

So life has been good, and school has been a combination of computer errors and lack of teachers so I’m fine with not doing any work. We recorded a NABUR a couple of days ago and on a totally unrelated note special announcement tomorrow!!!!

Thats kinda it…


I have a lot of PokeNews so you will be filled in on that Friday

So be sure to see last LAY if you haven’t already and my question for you is:

What is the best way to eat an Oreo (get creative).


Until then this is Jamie signing off like I always do:

An updated scheduled LAY-#21

BREAKING NEWS!!! A special announcement will be up Wednesday August 16! Check it out here and on The Nerd and His Brother!


Hello there you life and yoers!

Life and You, the postest with the mostest. Including anecdotes about my life and questions from viewers like you! Basically to get the info on the random happenings of my life as well as some..interesting questions this is your one stop shop!

And to clear up some confusion, Literally My Life is the Life segment in Life and You, after LML ends, there is still much more LAY. Acronyms are confusing, but stay R.A.A.T.L.S and everything should be F.R.E.E (guess the meanings of these in the comments!).

With that being said, let us travel now to the land of

Image result for literally

Image result for my

Image result for life

So as you probably noticed I have not posted in a while. I have made sure my classwork load won’t be too extreme this year (not that I could reasonably find this out by a week of dumb activities) but I am now able to make my commitments for this semester.

So first, reasons why I might not post.

      1. Forgetful

Unfortunately being forgetful has plagued me forever (Or has it? I can’t remember)  but I believe I have the solution.

I will sit down at regular times to work on my plethora of posts.

And for LAY the everything but the life section can be written earlier too.

     2.Thirsty for ideas

Now this reason is something I can do little to control because when you hit a creative block it really does feel like bedrock.

Image result for bedrock

And yes I just made a Minecraft reference in 2017. Deal with it.

           3.Working really hark on posts 

As self indulgent this reason might sound I do put a lot of effort into my posts (especially reviews **coughspidermanhomecomingiscomingipromisecough**) and I might just not get a post out one day. I will still try to get every series post out on schedule but y’know it happens.

          4. Dead

I can’t do much about this one sadly. I hope that Riley will notify you of my passing if this is the case. If not and you get a scheduled post about my upcoming firearms presentation at the Rowdy Loudly Pouty Coyote Bar and Insurance Provider you might want to start sending those flowers to my family. Because it goes without saying that something bad always happens at the Rowdy Loudly Pouty Coyote Bar and Insurance Provider. Heck, you need a thick redneck twang to even get the first half to rhyme.

If I die, Riley tells you, and THEN a scheduled post from me being all cheery and talking about my upcoming firearms presentation at the Rowdy Loudly Pouty Coyote Bar and Insurance Provider comes out I imagine things will be sad and flowers will be POURING IN. But oh well, I’m dead.


All this to say that my official posting schedule from August 12-December 12 is…

Monday: Random Post

Tuesday: Life and You

Wednesday: Fav Five(or 4 3 2 or 1)

Thursday: TIP Life (until it ends, TBD after that point)

Friday: 50/50 (maybe you will get a post,  maybe you won’t!

Weekend: No promises


So yaya, post updates!

And as I mentioned before I started school a couple of days ago and this years seems to be going better than last year. Personally my schedules are fixed up and though we don’t have some teachers and a our band program is nonexistent, I am hopeful!

As I write this I lose hope by the second.

But I believe that is all for Literally my Life. If you made it down here comment #LML.

Done? Okay, come back up here from the comments because there is still a whole lot more.

Anyways my question from yesterLAY was basically ‘What are your thoughts on ticket scalpers?’.

See if you can make sense of what bittersweetlyirrevocable has to say:

i hate ticket scalpers, but i mean, who knows, perhaps a ticket scalper doesn’t know how else to make money because all of their money was on a plane to Tristan Da Cunha, but was mistaken because no planes fly to Tristan Da Cunha, and all of their money ended up in Pune, but say the ticket scalper was American and didn’t know that all of their money was in a random city in India, and when they got to Tristan Da Cunha miraculously, they discovered that they had lost all of their money. so the person somehow gets back to America and finds out One Direction is coming to their city, which completely sold out because I mean, One Direction. but the person got a ticket as a gift from a friend. as the person looks through twitter, the person realizes that a lot of obsessed fangirls were going to fly over to attend the concert, and the person thought, what better way to earn back my money other than selling a bunch of girls fake tickets and….

I was mainly talking about people who buy up all the tickets for an event and then sell them for more money. Y’know, LEGALLY.

These people are popular to hate on (much like Nickelback who’s music I’ve never had a problem with) but I think that these guys are doing everyone a favor.


They see money to be made and they make it. We shouldn’t hate people for being smart, right?


They are showing the managers and artists who put the tickets on sale that people are willing to pay much, MUCH more for those tickets. So in the end it is really Taylor Swift’s fault that scalpers get all that money. Artists leave money on the table, scalpers take it.

Ironically, I put Nickelback and scalpers together because they are both things love to hate, even though the one time scalpers don’t make any money is scalping tickets for a Nickelback concert.

But that’s just my opinion so feel free to trash my haircut in the comments like           level-headed humans.

But seriously thank you bittersweetlyirrevocable for taking the time to pen that incriminating comment.


My question today is one I want answered kinda seriously. So poll time!

This reflects the content I make so thanks for completing it.

Ah, the end of the post. Time to promote other posts all feeding into one giant post-hole that adds to my power every day!

Click the carnival ADMIT ONE ticket for the last LAYs. Click the golden ticket for my last post. And make sure to click the reel of tickets for all of my posts. Every single one!

So that ends another Life and You, and as I want to say when I post twice in one day and then stop for 4 days:

A PROPosterous LAY #20

Wohoo twenty! But the first one is not even on the website for some confounding reason so when we celebrate our anniversary of LAY it’ll be for the second one.

I was going to a write one of my kind of serious, long, introspective posts but I am sleepy and don’t want to do anything wrong. So today you will get a Life and You, the very self explanatory series that I still find the need to explain. Basically talking about life, cool things, and talking to you, about you, behind your back. Though definitely not the last one!

Last LAY (well two LAYs ago, 19 was weird) the question was what time do you prefer most (day, night, midnight, the elusive mid-morning sunset) and the answers were

Night Time from: bittersweetlyirrevocable, Legendary randomness, and EclecticMusicLover

And 5 in the morning from: the_great_awesome. Props to you for being original!

And props to everyone who commented!

Props to everyone who read the last post too!

And props to you for reading this post!

Also props to you if you live on the planet Earth!

I can’t forget props to all humans!

Jamie spent 45 minutes propping up everything except the house he was building. The resulting slant in the house created a permanent dutch tilt for all residing in the abode. But after residence left the house the entire world seemed like a dutch tilt. The only ‘normal’ world was that crooked house Jamie built, and that slowly drove everybody in the house insane. They all mysteriously disappeared one day, and nobody knows why. Redundancy aside, legend has it that the ghosts of all patrons of the house whisper in directors’ ears, telling them to add dutch tilts into all movies they make. Soon, one day, all movies will consist of entirely dutch tilts. How do I know this? Well, I am a dutch tilt.Image result for scary dutch tilt

Hey, what are you doing in my post?


How you been filling my audience’s heads with lies about your ‘dutch tilt ghosts’?


I told you, that house was built on a slope, there was nothing I could do!

Ok fine, fine. I’ll leave!

Okay, thanks. Well guys, lets just continue the post with Li-

Jamie unleashed the ghosts upon the world, soon I will be in all of cinema. Comedy, drama, romance, whatever the heck the emoji movie is! Dutch Tilts EVERYWHERE! Okay I’m done, get back to your post.

I have gotten back from TIP, and TIP Life is going to be released Mondays and Thursdays until the series is over. I don’t exactly know how long the series is going to be because I don’t plan very far into the future but Mondays and Thursdays right here on Riley’s Backpack. Also

Image result for the nerd and his brother

remember that? A podcast with me, my brother, and more often than not Riley? Well my brother and I have been brian storming (not a typo, a way of life) and we are starting production hopefully within 2 weeks. Rest assured Riley will be brought in for the process starting when I see him in the future.

And I also cleaned my room, exercised, and fell asleep today. More than I do on most days!


Oh right, we went school supply shopping yesterday! And I was so confident I picked up 2 graphing paper notebooks and walked out of the Target without a SINGLE LINED RING NOTEBOOK. I truly believe that the odd choices and decisions I have made are going to be majorly important when I get on a large plane flying from Australia to the US and crash land on an unknown island, so writing this kind of mishap down could be very helpful to be in the future.

That finishes up LML!

Question Time

This may sound like an off topic question for this LAY (probably because it is) but what do you think of ticket scalpers? Love ’em, hate ’em, feel some other emotion towards ’em, comment it below!

And before I forget, the winning Paul McCartney from Life and You 19 is…

Early/Mid Solo Paul and Wings Paul

Personally a Paul I got to know more recently but really really enjoy listening to.

Well technically Ringo Starr won with 7 votes but I took the highest serious choice. I guess I know not to add silly answer choices now because you guys CHOOSE THEM EVERY TIME! So yeah, thanks to everyone who voted!



Image result for moltres


is out in Pokemon Go now, and I recently came into several premium raid passes. So tomorrow I’m going to go out on a raiding spree and make a Pokemon Go Pokemon Post! Also my adventures a couple of days ago with Pokemon will be in that post! So look for that Wednesday!


And yes, this disproves the uno, dos, tres theory about the legendary birds, but it also means Niantic is sticking to the catches by players on that team. So bringing up the rear Instinct will have Zapdos in 2 weeks (August 14). Lugia appears to still be spawning, so there is still hope for me on that front.

While we are on the subject of mobile games, my lack of Clash RoyaleImage result for clash royale

has merely been a lack of playing and a lack of interest. To me the game is kind of getting stale and the only fun thing is 2v2 if the person is with you IRL. I don’t know, maybe the new cards will make it better.

On that note the super special extra long LAY #20 is over. Thank you if you read this post all the way through that Dutch Tilt section, and thanks for reading my Life and You posts for 20 episodes. Although in the archives I can’t find the first Life and You, so if you locate it please, PLEASE let me know.

Goodbye everyone, and as I once said in a long lost episode of The Nerd and His Brother:

The Dutch angle, also known as Dutch tiltcanted angle, or oblique angle, is a type of camera shot where the camera is set at an angle on its roll axis so that the shot is composed with vertical lines at an angle to the side of the frame, or so that the horizon line of the shot is not parallel with the bottom of the camera frame. This produces a viewpoint akin to tilting one’s head to the side.

haha riley no more canted angle dictionary taboo for you!

This LAY is very abrupt and brisk so lets just jump in with

Hello everyone! I am currently basking in the LED lights that is the air conditioned Duke TIP summer camp. I am rounding out my second week here (2 of 3) and I  am pleased to tell you that so much awesome stuff has happened. Not only will there be a several part TIP series, but I am learning about so much about literature, detectives, and film making that I will be able to make the comprehensive reviews series a regular feature from the James Blonde Repertoire. Also movies books, games, and more will be more central features of the Nerd and His Brother (more on that later)

In other news I am digging our sites theme change and I am working more on graphics to take NABUR and my posts to the Image result for next level

So unfortunately until July 29th post will be few and far between. But I will be working on pumping out more and more content as the school year starts.

All in all, an eight day hiatus isn’t as long a break as some things ***coughcoughgoodmythicalmorningcoughcoughdoctorwhocough***.

If you are hurting for more of Blonde, my extensive catalog of posts is available by clicking young Paul, my most recent LAY is solo career Paul, and my podcast is modern but still awesome Paul MC.

Image result for paul mccartneyImage result for paul mccartney solo careerImage result for paul mccartney solo career

And so this post has at least some of the LAY trappings (don’t worry, last LAY’s responses will be discussed in the next one) which Paul is the best?

That concludes this sloppy LAY post but as all ways, remember:

Love me do, woooah love me do, hey juuude, yesterday, all my troubles were ram on, give your heart to somebody, queenie eye Queenie eye whos got the ball?

A tasty, ‘ok’ LAY #18


Since it has been a while, its time to bake my signature cake!


1/3 part Life

1/3 part You

1/6 part James Blonde

1/12 part  Awesomeness

1/12 part Procrastination


Bake for 7 or 8 days and serve after cooled.


Next week we will teach you the icing!


I’m not going to lie, I started this post a long time ago but forgot about it. For example, summer break is more than halfway over and this post originally read ‘So life has been good, school is nearly out.’

Now school starts  in a little over a month -_-

But we are finally here! I couldn’t wait to post but I knew I had to space them out so not to disappoint, so this is a Special Saturday post. Last week you were asked simply how your life was.

riseofthechairs seems to have really been busy, and I’ll let her comment speak for itself.

literally. my life. is.
beaches every single night
messy buns and christmas lights

i do not know the rest of the lyrics. i am doomed to a life of repeating these three lines.

the office is good. started a month ago. i am now on season five.

i made a sims town made up entirely of token lesbians at 3 am yesterday. woke up to a house only filled with couches. i do not remember doing this. i think i have seen a glimpse into my future.

i went outside and saw a little girl trying to run away from a flock of angry pigeons. why they were angry, i don’t know, but i think i have seen another glimpse into my future.

i found all my social studies final study guides and cried and then watched crash course for an hour to try and erase the guilt. it did not work. i shall be writing a letter to john green asking him to fix this.

i have to finish redoing thirty six chinese lessons by august 12th and i cry some more. i am on lesson five.

As compared to the vastly superior comment by Dum Cheese.

Life is ok.

Thanks everyone who commented about their life, and today your question is

What is your favorite time of day (noon, afternoon,evening, midnight, morning, etc.) and why?

Comment it!

And now it is time for Image result for literally

Image result for life cereal

Life is practically the same as last week, but some things stand out.

I am nearly all the way packed for camp, so it has been the source of tons of excitement (and nervousness) recently.

Also an update on The Office, I was watching it in a room with the door open and my little brother could’ve heard it, so my office privileges have been taken until I run 30 minutes on the treadmill. So finally a real incentive, I’m going to try to run it later today!

Finally I have a haircut today and usually right before a haircut I realize that I don’t really need one, but this time I need my hair thinned out and cut a little bit, so cool beans.

This has been another screening of Literally. My. Life!

If you made it down here to the bottom of the  LML, prove it with the comment #LML!

So if you need any advice, crazy experiments, more knowledge, or just a daily dose of dumbness, comment your questions or concerns down below!

So before I go I want to share some awesomeness in the form of my favorite YouTuber creators Rhett and Link.

Image result for rhett and link

They keep creating new creative content in the form of Good Mythical Morning, Rhett and Link’s Buddy System, and their new channel This is Mythical.


Specifically this GMM is just one of the best new ones yet. It is great to see my two favorite Internetainers still going strong.

Also I am so excited for their new book and book tour, if you want to help me and other Nashvillians get Rhett and Link to stop by on the road, please just take 2 seconds to sign this petition.

So I think that’s all for this LAY, the last one is right here for your reading satisfaction.

Also as a treat for those of you still reading these increasingly long LAY, my next post is Tuesday and it will be WONDERful,  and then you have another post Thursday that might very well be DEFINING in your life. So look forward to those!

Like I sometimes mutter under my breath as the Disney World lines fill up 4 days after The Arrival:

What a lazily written book.

LAY #17-‘This time, its graphical’

Image result for welcome

Now that I’ve successfully made you feel like you have walked into your 1st day in 4th grade with the welcome graphic, it’s time to LAY in the grass and gaze at the clouds, it’s Life and You!!

In the last Life and You…

*insert ripple effects here*

I asked you what you have been doing or will do this summer! And winter also as I pointed out in the last post.

And I assume the lack of ANY RESPONSES ABOUT THAT AT ALL simply means that you are having to much fun jet skiing or skydiving or binge-watching season 4 of The West Wing..

Image result for personally stock image

for me, I only really have one big thing left! I am going to this camp by Duke that’s about education. Now it seems boring from that horrible description but really you learn stuff about very interesting things. My class for example is Sherlock Holmes. I’ll learn about the character in writing and science!



Speaking of writing, my next post will be ‘music’ to your ears, and it will be Wednesday!

And now disjointed updates. It’s

Ready. Set. Go.

Today I went to give my family’s old soda cans to a man who pays me $0.40 per pound. For the record, I got $6.

Also we went shopping and that was exactly as fun as you imagine it.

Recently I have started watching the office and let me just say

Image result for office gifs

I cannot wait to go to Alabama first weekend of August! Riley is gonna spend the night so that’ll be cool!

Also I have been focusing more on piano and lately more saxophone. I also want to learn guitar but since sax and piano are my primary instruments those will take priority.

How is your life?

Image result for comment down below

This has been Literally. My. Life!

Sorry for the short Life and You, but if you are disappointing you know what to do!

Comment your question or suggestion to me, and the answer I give will set you free!

I’m sorry I keep rhyming at the end of my post, by the end I kind of run out of, um,  what’s the word?

Oh right, ideas.

But in any case, here is the last LAY for your enjoyment!

Well you know the drill, I hope you enjoyed the post, and as I say sometimes when I’m really lonely:

The Most Thrilling, Fashionably Late LAY – #16

Hey, remember when I said Life and You Friday?

Well that was a typo, a computer error, a ‘glitch’ as the kids call it.

Because today is clearly TUESDAY, not FRIDAY, so I apologize on my computers behalf.

Whatever the case, it’s LAY, LAY, LAY todAY so everyone yell HurrAY and go Cray-crAY rent Around the world in 80 DAYs on BlurAY.

Ok I’m done now.

Last LAY I asked the question “What ridiculous fears or beliefs do you have?”

bittersweetlyirrevocable says her fear of thunderstorms is really stupid but still lives on in her heart.

My thoughts:

Thunder storms (or thunder stroms as I have mis-typed it over and over again while writing this) are something that I never have any worry or fear about until it is happening.

When I hear there will be thunderstorms, I charge my phone, my computer, my portable battery, and wrap up tight to sleep. Low and behold 15 minutes later I’m cowering in the hallway willing the loud noises to stop.

So I understand you there, but try to listen to good music/ podcasts (like The Nerd and His Brother Podcast nerdandbrother.com new podcasts out now!) and drown out the storms that have an extremely minuscule percentage of hurting you.

Oh, and don’t shower in a thunderstorm.

If you follow all of these rules, then you should be perfectly fine!

Image result for personally stock image

A weird fear I had was roller coasters, but I think I’ve shaken that fear for at least the Disney tier of coasters.

EXAMPLE: At Disney’s Animal Kingdom, their biggest coaster is Expedition Everest.Image result for expedition everest

Basically you ride up a huge mountain,

Image result for expedition everest

encounter a Yeti,

Image result for expedition everest yeti gif

and chaos ensues.

Image result for expedition everest yeti gifImage result for expedition everestImage result for expedition everest

I was very scared of this ride, but we got on and as I went up the mountain, I started to be scared less, and when the thrills started coming, it was actually a pretty fun ride!

If you ever go to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, make sure to try this ride and Pandora: World of Avatar on the other side of the park. Pandora just opened and it is so immersive. The lines for the rides are actually very long though, so I would recommend a) dedicating some time and b) running straight for Flight of Passage.

The point of this is, try it!

Except showering in thunderstorms, PLEASE don’t try that.

And now for some updates!

For my secondary post, the people have spoken and they want…

Blonde’s Choice Items!

My recommendations for items that YOU can use in your daily life.

That will be Friday, and I mean it this time!

My life is doing well, Pokemon Go especially. In my Pokemon Go post I will have TONS to talk about so look forward to that one in coming weeks.

If you want my Pokemon Go post next week, get this post to 5 likes. If you want my Music post next week, get this post to 10 likes!!

Also I just cleaned out my dresser and 3/4 of the clothes no longer fit so my brother will have enough hand-me-downs to last a life time (or 6 months at the rate he is growing).

Funny Things *Pop Culture Edition!*  :

Image result for keanu memeImage result for star wars meme

Image result for star wars memeImage result for doctor who memes

That concludes the LAY, but I do want to ask you how you have been spending your summer (or winter you southern hemispherers) break and what you are going to do!

I again will share some comments in the post of that and share my own stories!

And if you have any random question or statement (and I mean anything, I once dedicated a post to discovering the square root of my name) just leave it in the comments and it will make its way into the next LAY.

So I’ll catch you later and as I screamed my lungs out saying while spiraling backwards into the cavernous mountain that is Expedition Everest:

IT’s that time again!!

That time where You are discussed as well as Life, YAL. Yeah, we’ll call it YAL today. xD

Hey Y’AL (I had to) how is it going? Let me know in the comments :D.

I’m okay, just overall not as happy as last week for no particular reason.

I know it has been a while since the last LAY, so this is going to be the SUPER AWESOME edition!!!!]

Beginning Updates

Right now I am listening to podcasts and writing posts, but soon I have to write and submit an essay due Friday. But don’ t worry, it will be a distant memory by the time this is published. So either I got it written and submitted and got a decent grade, or this post won’t go up because my parents killed me.

And I need to give you more awesome stuff since for the last couple issues I slacked off.

Without Further Ado, some AWESOME.

Shaded in the colors of the rainbows!

Awesome the First

As this post is released (sometime in May) NABUR is out! It probably has been out for a while because I am writing this in advance but hey, friendly reminder, nerdandbrother.com!

Awesome the Second

Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2. I have high hopes… I hope it lives up to expectations I have. So the after I watch it, I will write a little excerpt in a LAY, and maybe even write a review.

Final Awesome

STAR WARS! The Last Jedi trailer has been out for a long time, but the reason I mention this is me and my brother (with maybe a special guest) discuss Star Wars and other movie amazingness on the next NABUR, out soon!


and that’s all the awesome, if there is more awesome you want to share with me just send me a comment!!

And now we come to questions

Victoria (at this point the only person to pose questions) asks:

If you could go back in time for a day and see any historical event, what would you see?

This is a difficult question. I think it would have to be some of the formative meetings of America, I really want to be in the room where it happened (hehe) for some of that stuff.

I’m that one kid who actually likes learning about history, so I would also enjoy seeing some famous battles or some famous sports games. But I still think the constitutional convention would be my #1 place/time to visit.

More updates

I’ve been watching Tech review/unboxing channels out of jealousy, and I swear that one day this blog/ our podcast will be big enough that I can have some of the still they unbox. I did enter to win a S8 phone, so hey maybe something can happen!

Those expensive wastes of money that are now cool. So after seeing these things, I thought to myself

What could possibly be the next stupid cash grab that I could make money off of?

The Unicorn Frappuccino?

Besides that.

Well…*gasp*. Are you thinking what I am thinking?

Probably, we are the same mind.

So my mind and I worked together to create the next great craze, the sLab.

The sLab (or Super Lab) is a 5 inch by 5 inch by 1 inch mahogany plate, perfect for stable surface needs.  Perfect for any occasion, the sLab will be there through all your troubles. From your favorite Jamba Juice closing to your MacBook air dying, sLab has your back or, more specifically, your money. sLab is starting now at $150 in black and marble, additional colors available at a retailer.

Preorder now!



P.S We will have a question time podcast sometime soon. So please, PLEASE, PLEASE I BEG OF YOU comment a question for me/my brother/riley. It can be crazy, funny, personal, just we need questions!!!

And if you want to ask me a question for the next LAY, comment it down below!


I’ll see you tomorrow with a post I haven’t written yet, and as I enjoy saying:

I wonder if somewhere there is a unicorn drinking an overpriced human Frappuccino…

A cosmic LAY #12

Hello, and welcome back to Life and You, where I am running out of ways to explain Life and You.

So, I prepared a Haiku to explain to the new people what it is that I do here.


From hot tea to Pokemon

Answers questions too!

With that out of the way, let’s start with some questions!

Riley asks:

How long do you think each season of NABUR will be.

Well Riley, I think the short answer is go with the flow. Have conversations, play games, do fun stuff, and record it, and publish it to the internet. I think the episodes are a lot better when you are there also, and you might be in 1 out of every 2-4 episodes (episodes released every 2 weeks) so maybe throughout the summer, and then again throughout winter.

Victoria inquires:

What’s your favorite constellation/star/planet/astronomical thing and why?

Venus is probably my favorite star.

xD Seriously though, probably Orion’s Belt. Something about it is just very cool to me.

And that finishes off questions, if you want me to answer your question leave it in the comments 😀

I have an update on my poll from last week. Technically Other won, but one of the Others was Guitar so it wins with 3 votes!

And now about life.

On Saturday I had a bunch of people over and we played Mario! It was fun even though Victoria and Jordan caused significant property damage spilling drinks xD.

Then Riley stayed the night and we had fun, recorded a podcast, and it was a good weekend.

I listened to a lot of podcasts and music over the past week, and my friend Henry got a phone!

I guess that does it for this the 12th edition of LAY.

So my question I pose to you is, what is your favorite thing to do in your free time, like a hobby?

Cya real soon, and as I always say:

arrange in all different of hues
