TOP three...Funniest Roller Coaster Reactions

The wind in your face, the speed of the ride, the shear terror that rushes through your body…ROLLER COASTERS! Personally I can’t get enough of them, I crave the adrenaline but others however cringe at the thought of having to endure a 3 minute ride of horror. These are my top three picks for those who were lucky enough to be caught on camera.

#3. You may think that everything is alright...haha just wait

#2. Particularly the blonde kid (excuse the promotional stuff at the first, I promise it gets good)

#1. Classic, a pure classic. You may have seen this before but I know you want to watch it again! Ignore the poor quality and watch the exceptional content!

STAY TUNED! Since I know so many of my friends and readers are much more creative than myself I will be asking you for ideas for future Key Three's. If you give me an idea that I love and use on the blog you may be eligible to win some prizes!

TOP three...One Hit Wonders

We all loved them, listened to them more times than we can could count and still cant help but bust a move when you hear them played. The problem is, they are the only one of their kind! One hit wonders people…on the top one day, non-existent the next! My top three…
Los Del Rio, 1996

The ever popular (but actually pretty lame) dance to this day fills the dance floor with repetitive fun. This Los Del Rio single became the second longest running #1 and best single debut of all time in the U.S. 

           2.   ICE ICE BABY
Vanilla Ice, 1990

Every time this song comes on I cant resist the urge to do a little jig. Sparking controversy with the uncanning resemblance to the tune in “Under Pressure” by Queen and David Bowie, “Ice Ice Baby” still triumphed to become the second rap single to ever hit the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100. 

3.       3. MICKEY
Toni Basil, 1982

Another uncontrollable toe-tapper for me, “Mickey” was originally named “Kitty” until Basil’s crush on a Monkey during her work as a choreographer/dancer of the 1968 movie changed the name to better suit her feelings. AND I LOVE this video:)

TOP three...Lamest Utah High School Mascots

Oh High School…so essentially important, vitally serious and life-altering while you are in it and completely insignificant once you have left. Of course we will all look back on fond memories, close friendships, and pride for our Alma Maters but I feel that it is time to shed some light on some less than intimidating mascots.

***Disclaimer: No offense is intended if any of you have attended one of these great schools! Hopefully you have grown to appreciate the complete truthfulness in what I am about to say...

 Ha-ha this just cracks me up…it just sends shivers down your spine right? These guys are going to dig your beets like no one’s business! The mascot comes from the schools early years when students were dismissed to helps farmers harvest beets during the summer and has definitely been a point of discussion for Utahans since its establishment. Well Jordan you just keep digging those beets my friends!

I don’t think this mascot would be THAT bad but unfortunately Beaver is also the name of the town.  Maybe something like the BHS Bobcats or Buccaneers or anything else really! But it is the Beaver Beavers… yup that’s just funny!!

Rabbits huh? Ha-ha little fluffy peter cotton tails. This again simply strikes fear into my heart…not! Although Delta is known for their impressive wrestling program the fact that the competitor is rolling around with a rabbit just seems wrong…on many levels. 

 *^*^ Honorable mentions…Lehi Pioneers (I couldn’t say anything about them because I think Pioneers are amazing!) any school that is a wasp….i hated saying that name while cheering! And of course the MANTI TEMPLARS!! And NO we are not named after the temple…come on now people.

TOP three Most Spine-tingling Disney Villains

Disney has been a staple in my life ever since I can remember…you might even be able to say I have a testimony of its truly euphoric atmosphere and theme of fantasy. But as with life there must be opposition in all things so I decided to discuss three villains that were the reason for many sleepless nights as a child. In no particular order…
11.   Shan-Yu
It might be the fact that he barely speaks throughout the entire movie or the fact that he is just massive…no I think it’s totally his creepy yellow eyes that get me…regardless this guy is freaky! As the leader of the Huns, Shan-Yu is determined to conquer China and doesn’t care who he hurts in his path…to this day this guy creeps me out!

22.   Judge Claude Frollo
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
I know this is not the most traditional villain out there but honestly this guy freaked me out from day ONE and I think I finally figured out why… his character is so rooted in reality. Other villains are based upon the flamboyant prospect of the “super-villain” and Frollo, on the other hand, is a self-righteous man caught so far in doing the right thing that ultimately it corrupts him! This happens everyday people! Disturbing!

33.   Maleficent
                   Sleeping Beauty
My favorite villainess of them all! This chick takes the cake in my book! Evil knows no bounds with this vengeful enchantress who casts a spell on Aurora to ensure that “Before the sun sets on her sixteenth birthday, she shall prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die!” She is widely seen as the most evil villain of them all…even her name in the dictionary means “doing evil or harm”. Ya…she is pretty intense.

*****And to top it all off…here is a FABULOUS video portraying all the villains from my childhood featuring my top three along with many honorable mentions (Scar, Hades, Ursula, Jafar, Captain Hook, etc.) and not to mention a little shout out to MJ!!
