BUDDZCon: Our 2nd Anniversary Celebration!

Over the two years the Buttbuddz have existed, many YouTube videos have been made, and many subscribers have been gained. To celebrate our channel’s 2nd Anniversary, we’ll be holding the first ever BUDDZCon!

Yes, you read that correctly; BUDDZCon is our very own YouTube convention (located in Buttsburgh) that’s exclusively about the Buttbuddz, the best channel on the entire site. It will run from March 4th through March 4th (which was picked because it’s the release date of the hit video game Pepsiman), and it’s one party you will not want to miss!

To start off your BUDDZCon experience, everyone will have to attend the opening ceremony, in which Mr. Buttbuddz goes over the growth of our channel, and congratulates everyone for helping us get as far as we have. After all, without you -the subscribers and content-creators alike- The Buttbuddz would not be here today!

After the ceremony, you’re free to explore the convention center, and all of the fun events we have set up. Like panels? We’ve got plenty of them! Featured panels you’ll be looking forward to include (but aren’t limited to):

How To Make A Buttbuddz Top Ten

In this panel, you’ll get to witness the live creation of a Top Ten video, a staple of the Buttbuddz channel. One lucky audience member will have their suggestion for the Top Ten come to life, so be sure to bring in your best ideas!

Mr. Blobby’s Philosophy of Life

His philosophy of life will steer us through; There’s nothing in the world he cannot do, so that’s why Mr. Blobby is hosting his own panel; He knows he’ll show the world a thing or two!

07/27/1978 Live

The philosophical musings of John Blyth Barrymore are performed live for the first time, as he spends an hour discussing the significance of the Pipe Strip, a classic work of art among many Buttbuddz fans. (We promise, we won’t get a copyright claim for having him and the soundtrack of “Kundan” here.)

Anime Containment Panel

It was really hard to plan for BUDDZCon this year, and some of that was because the staff got into a heated argument over whether anime should be banned or not; This is the solution to that problem. …Honestly, we’re not sure what to actually do with this panel; you guys can discuss Moomin or something in it, we guess.

A visual representation of what that panel will probably be like…

Another fun, popular BUDDZCon activity is gaming, and naturally -like any gaming convention- we’ve got some video games set up for everyone to enjoy! Catch our gaming events to have lots of fun, and maybe even help make a Buttbuddz “Let’s Play” or two!

1:00 to 1:30 PM: let’s play a video game.
2:00 to 3:00 PM: Tower Unite Mini-Golf Tournament.
3:00 PM to 7:00 PM: Break Time. (Go take a nap, watch some shows, do whatever. Just don’t play any games.)
7:00 to 7:55 PM: wacky_races_v2 Race-Off. (All participants will randomly to teams RED/”Subscribe” and BLU/”Pepsi”)
8:00 PM to The Very End of BUDDZCon: Live “Let’s Play” Recording: Pepsiman(Which will eventually be posted on the Buttbuddz channel.)

Aside from panels and gaming, we’re also using the theater for Donkey Kong Country marathons and showing off the best of the Buttbuddz videos from the past two years, so you can check that out if you want.

Of course, all of these fun activities sound great, but there’s still one important question you’re about ready to ask us: How do I get into BUDDZCon anyways?

Well, aspiring guests, that’s why we have all sorts of tickets for all kinds of subscribers! From our budget “viewer” tickets, to our high-end “creator” type, there’s a ticket for anyone’s needs. (We also accept ticket payment in Buttcoin.)

“Hey Buttbuddz, what’s that Meet-and Greet Lottery you guys just mentioned?” Yeah, we’ll let you guys know about that, so don’t you worry about that.

Anyways, we hope that everybody attends BUDDZCon this year, and celebrates the 2nd Anniversay of the Buttbuddz with us! And remember to like, comment, and subscribe when you get there!

Why Not Writing Articles is the Future of Journalism

Hello Buttbuddz fans, you might have noticed it’s been a hecking long time since the last Buttbuddz article. Not to worry, because we at Buttbuddz HQ are not being lazy. We are just following the latest, hippest trends in journalism and article-writing. In case you missed the scientific studies and the trashy mainstream media coverage, we will write a bit about it.

You are… Seing… Mr. Buttbuddz…

To not write anything at all is the newest, freshest way to run a site. By not writing anything, you fuel the readers imagination. You might have guessed it, but this also eliminates the ‘fake news’ issue that has been plaguing the world of journalism lately. Without news, there will be no fake news so that’s one more world problem solved by the Buttbuddz.

Why Cboyardee is the Most Important Man on the Internet

Cboyardee, also known as Chef Boyardee. A name not often heard today, but back in the day he was known as memelord 1#. In fact, the modern internet has a lot to owe to this man, shrek memes, MS Paint videos and great video games. Let’s take a closer look.

Cboyardees most important work.

First, let’s take a look at Cboyardees most popular, but not most influencal work, Dilbert 2. It’s MS-Paint aesthetics are known across the world for it’s quality and artsyness, and the video remains popular despite Cboyardees original channel being deleted by YouBrute. Despite being a popular video, it hasn’t influenced the world as much as it’s sequel, Dilbert 3.

Is Dilbert 3 more important than Dilbert 2?!?

You see, Dilbert 3 introduced the world to robocop.mp3, a remix of the theme song for Robocop for the commodore 64 or something. This great remix would rather become the theme song for clowns in Space Station 13.

Yeah that’s right, without Cboyardee we wouldn’t have this most excellent tune.

And while you see, the Dilbert videos are popular and well known, Cboyardee has done a lot more for the internet, too much for one article, so I am going to mention two more groundbreaking achievements of his.

Cboyardee invented Shrek memes. Yeah that’s right, long before “Shrek is love, Shrek is life”,  Cboyardee created the classic “Shrek is NOT Drek” video, and also a daily series of Shrek themed jokes and even a let’s play of Shrek on the GBA. So if you enjoy Shrek related memes, remember to thank Cboyardee.

But now my good friends, we will look at Cboyardee‘s greatest achivement. A complete, classic vidcon enjoyed by childs all over the world. I am of course talking about the everylasting classic of  vidcon, it is BARKLEY SHUT UP AND JAM GAIDEN!

Yeah that’s right, Cboyardee was one of the devs and also the composer of this classic vidcon. If that doesn’t make you an important man on the internet, then I don’t know what will. And despite the fact his YouTube was purged long ago, you can still find Cboyardee hidden on the internet, working on Barkley 2 which will come out in the year 20XX, and you’re very exited for it.

But now I have to go, I have some b-ballin’ to do. I am very grateful to live in a world where b-ball isn’t outlawed, so byebye.

Why Funny Faces Are Essential to the Success of an Anime

An art style can make or break an anime; For example, an art style with a superb use of color theory can enhance an anime, but one with a complete lack of understanding anatomy would absolutely ruin it. However, there’s one element of an anime’s art that stands above all the others, ready to wreck devastation onto the animes that don’t use it: We’re, of course, talking about the funny faces.


Anime fans everywhere know that funny faces are a staple and a signifier of a good show; These expressions are an indicator that you’re in for a good time, whether you’re watching the anime itself or just simply posting about it online. It’s basically telling its viewers “Are you ready for fun? Because it’s time to have fun!” After all, who doesn’t like to have fun?

There’s a reason why we use Sailor Moon the most out of the three pillars of Comica approval.

To start our analysis of why funny faces are pivotal to successful anime, we’ll have to go back to anime’s humble beginnings: Anime originally started in the 1910s, much like many other cartoon industries from around the world. Not unlike the rest of the world, Japan was following in the same footsteps as everyone else: They took up sound when it was invented, they took up making animated feature films when they realized they could do that, they then— Well, you get the idea already.

Predictably, this would lead Japan to follow in the footsteps of western animation companies such as Disney and Fleischer Studios, and become inspired by their expressive characters. In fact, Japan liked them enough, Fleischer Studios even sent Betty Boop over there to perform once!

…That, and the fact that Donald Duck basically invented modern anime/manga. How could we ever forget about his influence on anime?

Pictured: Osamu Tezuka (And his character, Mighty Atom/Astro Boy) wishing Donald a happy new year!

While anime characters have always been expressive due to their traditionally-cartoony roots, another element would later come into play of the effectiveness of funny faces: Reaction images.

You see, all of these animation companies made sure to consider the classical principle of “emoticons” in their work. Dating back to a simple drawing of a smiley face in 1653, emoticons were instantly incorporated into animation to help make their characters easier to draw (especially repeatedly) than having to draw realistic human faces for nearly every frame.

However, it wouldn’t be until 1982 that the idea of emoticons being used digitally was taken into consideration. As the internet and other digital mediums grew, people began to develop new kinds of emoticons to use in their communication, such as smilies, sideways emoticons, kaomoji, emojis like the ones in The Emoji Movie, -and of course- using gifs/pictures of shows to express one’s feelings. Naturally, anime funny faces ended up being a common occurrence among all of the gifs and pictures people used.

This is only a small sample of the many, many anime reaction faces out there. (Admittedly, -aside from the left column, and one or two other ones- these are all kinda lame…)

Meanwhile, back in the anime industry, all of the companies were starting to notice that images of their show’s funny faces were starting to be posted nearly everywhere online. Originally, the anime industry was considering suing everyone who used reaction images into oblivion, but as soon as they noticed all of the “what anime is this?” comments near many of the anime funny faces, it turns out they found free advertising for the shows themselves.

As soon as many studios released again how much impact funny faces could have on their anime (getting people attached to their characters, free advertising in the form of reaction gifs, its fun to draw and animate, etc.) they made sure to provide plenty for their audiences to enjoy. However, what happens to an anime that doesn’t use funny faces?

Maybe it’s a deep, serious drama that can’t see itself using wacky expressions? Perhaps they spent too much of the animation budget on special effects? Or maybe they’re just complete brutes who don’t like people having fun while watching their shows?

Proof that an anime with funny faces is better than one without faces faces.

However, what if an anime is nothing but funny faces? One example would be the soon-to-become-an-actual-anime, Pop Team Epic; It plays with this idea, having it’s main characters faces always look adorable and funny, while engaging in all sorts weird, oddball scenarios, mainly since it’s a comedy series.

Pictured: Pop Team Epic‘s homage to anime’s early Disney roots.

In conclusion, anime funny faces is a time-honored tradition dating back to the 1930s that also still holds up to this very day, and very likely into the future. Everybody loves and relates to them, they’re fun, and they’re an indicator of whether a series is truly good and worth watching, especially as we go further into the digital age; Wherever there’s pictures, there will be anime funny faces!
