Fan Art Fridays: Grace Helbig and Chester See (Grester)

grester

In honor of #NaNoWriMo, every Fan Art Fridays post for November will have a fan fiction story to go along with it. Coincidentally, the cover of the fan fiction is almost the same as this week’s fan art!

YouTube fans cannot stop gushing over Grester. I figured that I would find some pretty good fan fiction about their relationship online, so I decided to go with this piece of fan art I found on Deviant Art.

The artwork was created by Super-Gia, and it’s a cartoon/anime version of a picture from a photo shoot Grace Helbig and Chester See did together. Chester’s cartoon looks so much like him! Grace sort of looks like a housewife that loves to drink wine, but I don’t hate it!

Head over to Whattpad to read this awesome fan fiction by croyden called The Secret Love which is about Grester hiding their relationship from their friends. At this rate, these two will get married and not tell us anything.

September has ended and the end of the year is nearing. Gosh, where did it all go?

This month brought a ton of fall season premieres and amazing music from some of my favorite artists. Here are my favorites in pop culture for September:

1. “Can’t Feel My Face” (Cover) by Karmin. I was waiting for something awesome to happen in this cover and it did, and it was hella good. (see what I did there?)

2. “FOOLS” by Troye Sivan. Words cannot explain how proud all of YouTube is of Troye Sivan.

3. “Jaded” by Disclosure. I think this is the first song I’ve heard with Disclosure’s vocals and me really likey.

4. “I Can’t Be Your Superman” by Skylar Spence. I think I listened to this song like 100 times already since it came out. And what do you mean you can’t be my superman, Ryan?

5. “Automatic” by Zhu feat. AlunaGeorge. This collab is too much beautifulness for me to handle…

2. Joe Sugg and Caspar Lee at Jim and Tanya’s wedding. I just LOVE the scarf accessory on Caspar!

3. The boys are looking spiffy. It’s like they all just walked off the page of a men’s magazine and into the wedding party!

4. Kisses and scruffiness. Is it just me or is Ryan Seacrest looking old?

5. Edy Ganem is pregnant! AHHHHHH! Looks like she won’t be on Devious Maids for a little while…

Favorite TV Episodes

1. The Mindy Project, “While I Was Sleeping.” I’m so happy this show didn’t die because of FOX. And OMJ engagement!

2. The Late Late Show with James Corden, Episode 77. Of course I’m going to be partial to this episode because I watched it live. And come on, BRADLEY COOPER DANCED. HOW COULD I NOT LOVE THIS?

Favorite YouTube Videos

1. Rhett’s people watching while in the park. I can’t tell which of these three stories is the funniest.

2. Grace Helbig does Chester See’s makeup. He looks like an Asian girl!

3. Ballroom dancing on NYC crosswalks. This is the cutest thing ever in theory, but I wouldn’t want to try this during rush hour.

Happy October!

August Favorites: Miley Cyrus Banned, “Till Sunrise” Premixes & Black Tie Beach

PicsArt_1409529134615

I’ve decided to start doing a monthly favorites series on my blog! Woohoo!

As of now, the categories are: favorite news articles, favorite music, favorite TV episodes, favorite celeb Instagram photos and favorite YouTube videos.

If you have any other suggestions for categories, please let me know in a comment below!

Favorite News Articles:

1. Miley Cyrus’ concert gets banned in the Dominican Republic. You know it’s serious when half of Hispanola doesn’t want you performing on their soil!

2. Photos of Koko the gorilla mourning the loss of Robin Williams. So touching.

3. Iggy Azalea fell off the stage during VMA rehearsal. She’s a trooper, man.

Favorite Music:

1. *This one is a two part-er* Goldroom released a vocal stem of his new song “Till Sunrise” feat. Mammals so that DJ’s around the world could have fun with the track before it came out this month. Here are my two fave premixes:

The LTMR Premix: Features an uber dreamy recurring voice of soothing orchestral “ooos” throughout the song along with light violin and horn melodies. Literally paradise in a song.

The Truefaux Premix: I can’t get over how sexy this is. Jeez. Cue the slow motion running along the shoreline! I just love the bell sounds right before the chorus. It’s pure genius, the way Bobby Caldwell’s 1980s song “Carry On” is mixed in. Gah, so good!

2. “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift.  I still don’t get why so many people were offended. The song and the video are brill. #HatersGonnaHate

3. “Animals” by Maroon 5. V cannot come out sooner enough! Can Maroon 5 ever write a bad song? NO!

4. “Miracle” by Kimbra. I’m kind of disappointed that this is the only song I like off of her new album The Golden Echo but this one is definitely amazing.

5. “All About You” by Hilary Duff. This. Is. It. She. Is. Back. I was kinda worried about her first comeback single, “Chasing the Sun” but this…THIS IS GOLD.

6. “Touch” by Troye Sivan. Of course, TRXYE is freaking amazeballs, and this song is no exception. This kid better release an LP in the next year, man.

7. “Run-Time” by Imogen Heap. After AGES Imogen’s album finally came out (idk why her label delayed it for so damn long!) and I absolutely love this track!

Favorite TV Episodes:

1. RUSH 1×5 “Where is My Mind.” Pretty much all of the RUSH episodes so far have been so good, but this one was the craziest roller-coaster I’ve been taken on in a 60-minute time period for a while.

2. Pretty Little Liars season 5 summer finale. I can’t even begin to understand how or why they let us predict this season’s finale death. They NEVER do that!

Favorite Celeb Intagrams:

1. Miley Cyrus’ zit cream mustache.

2. Nick Jonas’ sexy muscle.

5. Emily Osment handstand.

Favorite Youtube Videos

1. Improv Everywhere: Black Tie Beach. This looks hella fun! The majestic hula hooping at 1:10 is just awesome.

2. MarcusButlerTV: Not My Legs with Niomi Smart. I love these two so much. If they broke up I would cry forever.

3. Chester See: Whatcha Wanna Know. These fans ask the best questions. “When you go to the toilet are you Chester Wee?” WHAT. I can’t even.

4. Zoella: How Well Do We Know Each Other with Alfie Deyes. These two are also adorbs and I’d cry forever if they broke up too.

 

What were your faves this month? Hope you had an awesome August. September’s comin’!

Internet Week New York 2014 (Day 2): Grace Helbig, Piper Kerman and Larry Smith

IWNY

NYC’s Metropolitan Pavilion was filled with techies, YouTube junkies, and bookworms on day two of Internet Week New York.

Grace Helbig, known for the YouTube channels DailyGrace, and recently it’sGrace, joined David-Michel Davies, Executive Director of The Webby Awards, for a Webby Session on the EVOLVE MEDIA stage at 12:30pm.

“I have this disease where if I stop working I die,” she told Davies.

Grace spoke about her knack for creating content on YouTube, Camp Takota, and even a new book she’s supposedly writing.

When asked about the book from a member of the audience she was dumbfounded.

The Evolution of Lady Sitting (Grace Helbig Edition)

“The FBI should start hiring you people on Tumblr,” she said when the fan confessed how she found out about the secret book.

Davies tried to get her to spill some information about the book, but all he got from Grace was, “VAGUE, VAGUE, VAGUE, VAGUE, VAGUE.”

She claims she’ll tell us more if we nag her about it enough on Twitter, so make your thumbs useful!

And don’t think I didn’t see you cowering away from everyone during the event, Chester See!

Still can’t believe I got to meet Grace Helbig on my birthday!

Also, this was a nice surprise @chesterseesphotos #IWNY

To make matters even more exciting, Piper Kerman and Larry Smith, the real Piper Chapman and Larry Bloom of Netflix series Orange is the New Black took the EVOLVE MEDIA Stage for a chat with Lean In journalist and Contributing Editor Jessica Bennett later in the afternoon.

Larry and Piper IWNY 2014

The couple have become masters at expressing themselves with six-word memoirs. Smith’s t-shirt said it all with a simple phrase: Now I obsessively count the words.

Despite the fact that Piper Kerman wrote an entire memoir about her year in a women’s prison, she admitted that she’s a very private person.

The fact that the television adaptation of Orange is the New Black is loosely based on the true story of Piper and Larry makes room for personal moments amidst all the media hype.

“Even fictional stories have this gounding in reality.” –@piper at #iwnypic.twitter.com/wzxjIzafEx — Six Words from SMITH (@sixwords) May 20, 2014

Even the other inmates were given different names for the memoir, “and some telling details from their stories were changed” as well, said Kerman.

“Just read the book,” Smith demanded at one point during the open question portion of the panel.

For more six-word memoirs, read Smith’s The Moment: Wild, Poignant, Life-Changing Stories from 125 Writers and Artists Famous & Obscure.

Oh, and mark your smartphone calendars, fellow OITNB fans: Orange is the New Black returns to Netflix on June 6th!
