As the last blog council before Spring Break, we decided to send the best blog authors to special destinations. Enjoy your week off from blogging!
Alex Alam–This is Some Serious Spy Shit, Y’all
This well done post caught our attention with its great research and use of pictures, videos and audios. This thought-provoking topic captured our interest and encouraged us to explore further. Some might say we got LOST in the post…
Frank Berman— Room 237
The Stanley Hotel, CO
This intriguing post went deep into the details about the broader issue of conspiracies and why we should care about them. His overall theory about conspiracies was thought-provoking in multiple different ways. Not only covering the basis, Frank went above and beyond by combining his favorite film with a conspiracy theory. Well done Frank, well done.
Quote of the Week: “Conspiracy theories are attractive, but like most things that are attractive, they are often dangerous.”
Megan Cautilli–The Phantom BUZZ Conspiracy
Silicon Valley, CA
This post interested us because it dealt with an issue that we can all relate to and offered several conspiracy theory explanations. Kudos to your deep thinking, creativity, and research–seems like you may be developing a sociological imagination. 😉
Vinny Cinotti–Peyton Manning Had a Higher Calling
Although it wasn’t the longest, kudos to your creativity Vinny. You chose the difficult route by finding your own correlation and creating your own theory. This creativity is not easy to come by, but you overcame the challenge and created an interesting theory about weed and the honorable Peyton Manning. You’re onto something…
Mike Layman–Read This and You’re Guaranteed to Win the Lottery
Las Vegas, NV
Great title pulled us right in and took an interesting perspective on a common conspiracy that is visible in our society. Really got some comments going as an issue that a lot of us feel is unfair and people to vote on your poll, even though most people do not think the lottery is a conspiracy theory.
Megan Maschal–Common Astronomical Event or Alien Invasion
Area 51, NV
Great job putting a lot of research into this post and good use of the poll and putting your opinion out there without overdoing it. The links were very helpful and these different theories kept us entertained and you thoroughly explained them to give us a good understanding of the material
Kelly Morque–Tupac Announces 2013 Tour
This post was truly great. It really made us wonder–could Tupac really still be alive? Also prompted a long conversation on imbedded messages within music, specifically in regards to Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” played backwards. Congratulations, you are on your way to Gangsta’s Paradise!!
Mike Muscala–Zero Dark Dirty 😉
Even though you submitted your post late…not only did we love your title, but we LOVED the content. Very well written and we really enjoyed your use of pictures. They added a great sense of humor to the post. We are sending you to the scene of the crime. You have won yourself a stay at Osama’s compound! Congratulations and keep up the great work.
DJ Rowe–Conspiracies in the Courtroom
Guantanamo Bay Prison (A Few Good Men …. Tom Cruise)
Connecting conspiracy and the courtroom was a creative correlation that no one saw coming. With detailed explanations and examples, you clearly explained your opinion on what a “good” conspiracy theory is. Overall, your easy to understand and in-depth explanation earned you a trip to one of the most famous places in the world where you can start you career with Tom Cruise.
Gil Erlich–Is all that SHIT in the Media Really True?
Overall Best Post This Week…ALSO MOST VIEWS! 160 and counting…
Congratulations Gill! Not only winning first place with the most views, you also won the best post of the week. Your post about the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting conspiracy provided impressive detail on every aspect of the shooting. With a video documentary and your explanation, we felt as if your research provided interesting facts that kept the reader engaged. Then, to top it off, you connected it to a wider theme and left the reader thinking about if the conspiracy was true. You are the SHIT.
