Today marks my 10th year on WordPress. Initially, my blog was called MC’s Cool Blog. During the 1st few years, I rarely posted blogs. I gave little attention to it since I was more into Multiply (where I occasionally blogged about my personal stuff), Friendster, Imeem & YouTube (where I search for music until now), et. al. Among the blogs I posted back then were Music fit for studying, parody of dadagdag’s Jun Lozada vs. The Mob (created by one of my friends), 99.5 RT & Super Ondoy.
Since mid-2010, I began writing posts on an occasional basis. I also use my blog to promote my videos (except airchecks) on my YouTube channel. The next year, my blog rose to fame with my post about Talk TV (which later became Solar News, 9TV & CNN PH). Later on, realizing that the name “cool blog” sounds weird, I renamed my blog to MC’s Corner, which fits better for my blog. In 2014, my blog rose to fame once again with my post about Retro 105.9, and the station even shared it. Since then, I focus more on radio, including a yearly review about Philippine radio. But, I still write about other topics as well since it’s boring for me to focus on only 1 topic.
It takes a lot of time for me to gather ideas for a particular post. And I have a lot of stuff to prioritize, especially my studies. Those are why I don’t usually post on my blog. Nonetheless, I still post something whenever I have something in mind. Anyway, happy 10th anniversary to my blog.

FRED is a YouTube character known for his high-pitched voice and his crazy actions. It was created by Lucas Cruikshank, who also portrayed him. Last 2008, he was the 1st YouTuber to hit 1 million Subscribers.
Last August 5, we expected Lucas for a comeback as Fred. Instead, a Korean kid now portrays as this beloved. And what’s shocking is that this channel is now “owned” by Yuksung Corporation, which is involved in construction, financial services, discount product manufacturing, prison management, chemical production, novelty breakfast cereals, and children’s entertainment. This NEW Fred claims to be Crazier, Better, More Hyper & More Squeaky. However, his new videos are just remakes of Fred’s old videos, with the promotion of Yuksung Cereal. In the 1st video, 83% of the viewers (in terms of likes) do not like the New Fred. They say it’s not funny anymore & they decided to unsubscribe to that channel since Yuksung ruined the character people love.
A lot of speculations have been around the internet. Some people say that Fred’s channel was hacked by Yuksung. Some say that Lucas sold Fred to Yuksung because he’s too old to make those kinds of videos. Lucas stated in a Q&A video that he wants to make more Fred videos, but he “doesn’t” know the password and he denied that he has been hacked. I searched for info about Yuksung Corporation and I realized that it does not exist at all. Its website was registered in the middle of June with copy-paste pictures. It’s more like YUCKsung.
Secret code from Fred.
Recently, Lucas posted in his Facebook page a letter from Fred, which contains a secret code that leads to a private video. In that video, Fred explained that he’s kidnapped by some Korean and he needs help from Lucas. So, this means Lucas may be trolling on us all along. Let’s just wait & see what will happen to the Original & New Fred in the future episodes. I hope this New Fred won’t last long.
