Pinterest is a lot of fun. (Check out my pins!)

There are all sorts of fun images out there on the web that can be 'pinned' to remember later, and it can really suck you in.

However, I would say WELL over 90% of pinterest users are female, so on pinterest itself there are TONS of crochet patterns and birthday party ideas etc etc, which is FINE, but you know - I want more MANLY posts!

So I've created a MANLY interests board. Let me know if you have any suggestions (and yes it's a bit tongue-in-cheek!)

Also I created this on the fun "Stay Calm" Generator site specifically for my board.

SO Join MEN!

Freerunning Kids

WOW! These kids are amazing - and they've been training with Tempest Academy Freerunning (see earlier post) for LESS than a year! Amazing! I would LOVE to put my kids into something like this - these boys are going to have the whole world as their playground!

"Frank and Max have been training with Team Tempest for almost a year. Watch as the boys showcase their skills in their first ever gym video at Tempest Freerunning Academy!"

Great U2 Cover!

I'm a fan of 30 Seconds to Mars, so I thought I'd share this cool cover of one of my favorite U2 songs, "Where the Streets Have No Name":

Nice! (from Jared Leto's blog)

Thoughts on TV Remakes

It seems like that's almost all they can do these days... Well if they are going to do it they should dig deep for those hidden gems that are almost forgotten these days...



I mean really - how can you beat Electra Woman and Dyna girl??

Well, yes, the answer IS in the second video.

Bigfoot and Wild Boy would definitely not be defeated by them... but it'd be a tough fight!!

Friday Quotes - Lao Tzu

"Those who know do not speak. Those who speak do not know."

- Lao Tzu

A reminder that sometimes... I talk too much!

PIRATES!!! (New movie yay!)

This looks very exciting indeed!

Pirate movie in the style of Chicken Run? I'll definitely see that ASAP!

The Pirates! Band of Misfits

Sadly... we have to wait until March of 2012. I guess I should finally drag me booty out to see the latest POTC in the meantime. I still can't believe I haven't seen that!

Wednesday's Awesome Japanese Music Video! FINAL edition!!!

Today for our final WAJMV entry, we get the rockers Breakerz and their song LAST † PRAY

Crazy - and yes - I picked this because of the eyepatch and the totally FFVII-esque costumes!

So hopefully you will pray that this is the LAST of this reoccurring entry!

If you really want it back just let me know. I had fun with it for a while, and I found out stuff about the Japanese Music scene I never would have otherwise!

Now to think of something else to replace it!

Wednesday's Awesome Japanese Music Videos!

"Hey! Say! JUMP!"

Wait what? Oh that's their name?

Cool! Let's watch 'em sing "Over!"!!!

It's over... Love is over!!

Whatever are we going to do?
HA! So funny.

You've gotta admit their choreographic skills are pretty impressive in all these Japanese groups.

My wife LOVES Fox's show "So You Think You Can Dance" - and for a competition show it's definitely one of the better ones on. A while back they did an opening dance that looked VERY much like the choreography Genki Sudo does for World Order! (only not as good) Overall those contestants are better dancers, but in that Japanese pop-style - it is hard to compete with the original!

Still, for the most part - Japanese everything is just over-the-top awesome - like the pop-trio Perfume


My life is now complete. Wait... What happened to the white-suited leopard-skin-necked plastic faced man and WHAT did he have in that briefcase!?! AHHH my life is ruined again!!
