Black fish trailer

My initial reaction was very interested, its not very often you see an orca. I think that they shouldn’t keep orcas in a small space because horrible things can happen. I was very surprised to see what had happened and what they did about the orca. It was actually very sad and kind of disappointing.

I think the documentary will be about the orca being captured and being put in a aquarium basically.  It’ll probably be about how the orca went a little crazy and killed the trainer but I mean its a very big creature and there meant to be in the wild not in a small concealed area.

My issue is that If the orca didn’t need help in the first place and they just captured the orca for no reason is wrong and disrespectful. I mean no human would want to be taken from there home and put on display. The orcas and any other wild animal needs to be where they belong and that’s in the wild not in a cage. I’m not surprised really, the orca wanted to free not locked up for viewing.

Sea world is probably very surprised and disappointed in the orca, but I mean they cant expect it to act like a human because its not. Its meant to be a orca and sea world apparently doesn’t see it. I have no clue what there going to do about the orca but they need to probably put it back in the wild I think that’s what is best for the orca and Sea World.

Sea world

Im surprised that they think its the trainers fault. Its not hers its everyone because your keeping them in captivity. They don’t need to blame her they need to take responsibility.

No my attitude didn’t change it just got worse because they want to blame the trainer when It wasn’t her fault.

That yes the orca did attack but it was somewhat kind of the trainers fault for not seeing it coming but that they need to be more aware.


Blackfish review


The movie reviewed told you how it was, its a good but bad thing for animal captivity. The movie review said that no harm was done to the orca behind the scenes. It was taken care of and protected. It said it was a very realistic but nonrealistic with some of the scenes, they could tell whether or not it was real or not.

A couple of highlights of the movie was that they didn’t refer to it as a orca but a black fish because that is basically what it is. Also that a marine trainer was killed by a orca named Tilikum. Sea world was hoping that blackfish would show you that things happen and yes it was sad but animals don’t really know what there doing to them. The movie try’s to bring a good discussion to the orcas and how they are only animals.

The negative things about the movie was that they basically focused on the death of the marine trainer and not about how the animals are mostly calm and nice. Also that the trainer that only worked at sea world for 2  years left, they said if there wasn’t trainers in this movie then it would be completely fake.

The movie seems okay just that its getting a lot of hate because of the death of the marine worker. It seems like a lot of things are fake and that they need to make it more realistic.

The movie review is stating that it was a good movie just that a orca should not be kept in a small tank they need to be in the wild. When orcas are in a small space for a long time they begin to have anxiety and that’s when they start to roll and toss to try to get free.

The highlights are the emotional parts of the movie. Like the killing part is very emotional but that is what captivity does to large animals that need to be free. It shows you that large animals being kept in captivity can relate to injuries or worse death and that is exactly what can happen if you don’t release the animal back in to the wild.

The negative is the killing and the death of the marine workers. It was sad and there blaming sea world for the death so they are sewing them. It was also about the orca being kept in captivity and not being released when he should’ve been, so it could’ve hurt more people and being in the small space is not good for the orca.

My overall opinion is that sea world knew it wasn’t good to keep an animal that large in captivity and they should’ve released it right away when it was helped. Zoo’s are meant to be fun an happy not sadness and that’s exactly how the animals feel kept in a small area. Its different with small animals because you can give them a large space to walk or swim but with a orca they need room which a small zoo can not provide.

Album Review on R5


R5 first started off doing little concerts in their basement for their family. When the started to get older they took dance lessons, the oldest son Riker Lynch wanted to be an actor or singer so they packed up the whole family and moved out to California. The band contains of Riker Lynch (the oldest) Rydel Lynch, Rocky Lynch, Ross Lynch and Ryland Lynch is the youngest of them. They have always wanted tyo make music and be in a band together, but Ryland wasn’t that into the band situation. This is when they met Ratliff, he was a drummer and that is what they needed to complete there band.

Since then then they have been playing at little areas just to be there and have fun, but when Ross Lynch landed the role of Austin on Austin and Ally there career as a band took off. They came out with an album called Louder, this album has a lot of love songs, but also some songs that you can just have fun to.

With both Austin and Ally and the band R5 taking off their music grows throughout the world. They are now traveling the world and are gaining fans each and everyday. The bands over all favorite song on the album is Cali girl because it’s a love song but it is also a upbeat song you can dance to. “I like them Cali girls, like the way they move” this is some of the lyrics, but the band members have different favorites on the album.

One last Dance is a very emotional yet sweet song that I think anyone could relate to, this song talks about a boy and a girl meeting in high school but things went wrong for them. The ending they want to be together but so many things have went wrong so the boy asks for one last dance (meaning a second chance for love). This band is blowing up the charts and everyone loves it. This band is a family band, the only one that isn’t related is Ratliff, but they call him a brother anyway. R5 calls their fans part of the family so they call them R5 family.

R5 have already went on two worlds tours and are looking forward to doing more. Their plan is top travel to every state and every country so they can meet all there R5 family.

Obama Delays lower prices on Obamacare


Obama once again delayed lowering the prices on affordable health care. His excuse was that he wanted it to run more smoothly. He’s also rewriting the law for healthcare so the things he was saying probably wont be true. “Once again, the President is giving a break to corporations, while individuals and families are still stuck under the mandates of his health care law. And, once again, the President is rewriting law on a whim,” House Speaker John Boehner said.

Obama doesn’t ever really lower prices when he says he does, and a lot of republicans are getting angry over it. The democrats say that he’s just trying his best and he needs more time to figure prices out and then he will make it a law. They say if he’s going to put something out in public and then take it back then he just needs to wait until he’s ready. Republicans said that they weren’t surprised that he delayed the lower prices.

“He’s rewriting laws” Republican Cathy McMorris said “that its just another way to tell the laws aren’t working and he needs to fix it if their that bad.”  Cantor, the No. 2 House Republican said ” He purposely puts off Obama care to put more negative comments on himself.” Plus the government isn’t working for him so he should try and fix that as well.

A couple of solutions for him is to either do what he says he’s going to do or just not let the public know what he’s thinking about doing. It would make him get less hate than he does right now, and it would give him a chance to figure everything out before he makes it public.

Demi Lovato


Demi Lovato has a has a hard life from being bullied when she was little to her eating disorder, cutting, and drug and alcohol addiction. Demi never thought that she could get through the things she did. She went in to treatment to get help, she didn’t like being there. Demi found out there that she was bipolar and anorexia, depressed.

When Demi got out of treatment she wrote a  song named Skyscraper, this song is about her struggles and how she wants to stand high and not let people get her down. This song brought her to the top, fans started to realize what she had went through so they had someone to look up to. Before demi went into treatment she didn’t want to be a “role model”, she resented it. She said ” I don’t see why girls look up to me I’m nothing special.” She didn’t realize how much she meant to fans at that point. Demi has came along way from where she was at. Also when she got out of treatment she got “Stay Strong” tattooed on her wrist so whenever she was feeling down and she had the urge to self harm she saw that on her wrists.

Demi has to deal with all of her issues she has and one way to deal with it is to take medication. “It’s a daily thing, I treat it with medication. Not everybody does that, but for me it works.” Demi says. She has came along way to where she was, she is so proud of her weight and her beauty. Demi said ” I did gain weight, but you know what it’s okay because I’m healthy and proud.” Demi is now touring and also spreading the word about her story and how she wants to stop bullying. In the middle of all her work with touring and being on the X Factor she some how found a way to write a book. The book she wrote has a quote for each day of the year and what it means to her. She says it’s a morning meditation she does to prepare her self for the day ahead.

Even though demi was getting better she was also hiding a big secret. She still was addicted to drugs, she said “I would sneak it on the planes and do it while I was sitting there or I would go to the bathroom.” Her manager and her mother and step father saw what was going on and threatened Demi to take her little sister and go back to Texas. Demi knew she had to stop because her little sister meant the world to her. One other thing that means the world to demi is her fans, she says that there what kept her strong. Demi loves her fans more than anything “their the ones that got me to where I am know.”
