Friday Quotes - Elbert Hubbard Month

“Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.”

- Elbert Hubbard

This is one of my favorite quotes ever. There are things in life that should be taken seriously; love, faith, family - but even those - if taken too seriously - can't be fully ENJOYED!

Enjoy your life people! It's a GREAT thing!
(and I'm even older tomorrow than I am today - hooray!)

Cool video!

People Are Awesome

Shake it!
(Probably want the volume down on this one!)

No Embarrassment, no awkwardness - Awesome!

Humans Are Amazing - Cello + Dancing Edition

I love the Cello. Yo-yo Ma is amazing.

Dancing is always impressive to me - I don't like watching it as much as my wife does, but I can appreciate the talent and dedication that goes into it. This guy is pretty amazing!

(Turn up the volume the sound isn't great)

I also think it's funny, his movements are very 'street', very NOT classical, but really, good dancing is good dancing - if he were in some Ballet tights it wouldn't look that out of place!

In other news, Saturday morning I was able to accomplish the early stages of a muscle-up. I did a few muscle-ups on park playground monkey bars that made it slightly more doable than a straight bar. Ultimately I WILL do it on a straight bar. So because of this my Bucket List has been updated.

Funny Japanese Prank

Normally I think pranks are pointless and not very nice - but this type of prank is pretty funny. Nobody gets hurt or humiliated - just fun!

- Elbert Hubbard

Amazing Yoga

This video shows Darren Rhodes doing every pose in the Anusara Syllabus - pretty dang amazing! Shot over 2 days I guess... check it out:

Tanutara: Making of the Anusara Syllabus Poster from Ross Evans on Vimeo.

I like to think I'm getting pretty good at Yoga myself - but NOT to this insane level.

Nor do I ever plan on being able to do some of these poses!

Just Shows to Go Ya!

It is not WHO you know...

"Palin was paid $262,500 for 15 to 20 days of work"

"Scott Walker Gives $81,500 Government Job To 26-Year-Old College Dropout"

There are plenty more examples, but these are some recent ones of note...

On a side note - I definitely need to improve my networking!

Humans Are Amazing - Hula Hoop Edition

Seriously amazing!

Although the chubby-bird-people or whatever they are - those are slightly disturbing!

Next time I go to Vegas I really need to actually go see one of these Cirque de Soleil shows - they're all over down there now!

Tempest Freerunning

It's been a while since I had a Freerunning video!

So here you go!

Love the Mario decor and the amazing stunts.

Makes me feel old - but I'm not dead yet!

This Tempest Freerunning Academy looks pretty amazing!
