First thing this video is old and not like a few weeks old im talking 4 years old which in internet translation is about 500 years. But I was reintroduced to it this past weekend and thought id share it. While rappers usually don’t get praised for their lyrics due to whatever reason this is an example of how great a song can be when using a guitar and a good voice, this Zack galifiankis clone makes Hey Ya a beautiful song.
When it comes to beer everyone and their mother refers to Oktoberfest as the place to be. Granted there’s no question that Oktoberfest is probably the single coolest drinking festival in the world, that doesn’t mean we don’t have our own parties here in the USA.
You’d be surprised at how much this country celebrates beer other than at fraternity parties and tailgating events. We have a strong affinity and respect for beer and some regions like to show it proudly.
Check out these 6 awesome beer festivals….
1. The World Beer Festival
If you happen to be in the Raleigh, North Carolina area you might want to check out the World Beer Festival. Oddly enough it’s a charity event (for which charity I have no idea) that showcases over 300 Southeast specialty beers from 150 national and international breweries. Get your drink on.
2. Belgium Comes to Cooperstown
You had me at Cooperstown. First of all, any excuse to get to Cooperstown is cool enough. Second of all, held on a Saturday in July, the Belgium comes to Cooperstown features over 200 Belgian style beers that visitors can sample. Plus you can dance around a bonfire!

We’re not quite sure what inspired the folks at VOXY to compare Bob Dylan with Kanye West — although you could certainly make the argument that each is the voice of his generation. Examining the language in West’s My BeautifuL Dark Twisted Fantasy and Dylan’s 1965 masterpiece Highway 61 Revisited turns up a few interesting overlaps: both stars have a thing for Jesus and Napoleon (which kind of makes sense in an “icons obsessed with icons” way). But while West is all about brands, “power,” and “douchebags,” Dylan prefers figures from his own (Queen Jane, Mister Jones) and American (“highway,” “bandits”) mythology

April Fool’s Day is one of the best days of the year. On no other day are you “legally” allowed to play jokes and pranks on your friends, family and co-workers and have a built-in excuse. Well last year we gave you a simple, yet awesome list of 5 simple pranks to pull on your friends, seen here for refreshment. Some people will go to great lengths to pull off elaborate gags on those around them but sometimes it’s just as fun to play smaller, simpler pranks on as many people as possible throughout the day. That’s where we come in. Here are 50 pranks you can play on people with very little effort, yet still reap much joy out of the end results. (And be sure to add your own great April Fool’s Day gags in the comments so we have even more ideas!)

Here is a pretty amazing video, especially since this guy is out seeing every inch of the world, the rest of us are trapped in our sweet cubicles staring at the same crack in the wall for the past hour. The name of the video is called Around the world in 80 seconds. Directed by Romain Pergeaux & Alex Profit. A project done in only 3 weeks. This route is a tribute to the famous Jules Verne’s book “Le tour du monde en 80 jours”. The tour included stops in London – Cairo – Mumbay – Hong Kong – Tokyo – San Francisco – New York – London.

Sexy new building up in the New York Skyline formally known as ‘beekman tower’. It is the
tallest residential tower in the western hemisphere designed by one of the best architects to ever live, Frank Gehry. He has always been one of my favorite architects even though I heard he really doesn’t do anything on the projects, he just approves things, which in my time in architecture noticed that is the normal once you become the boss, and that ladies and gentlemen is boss.

Living in a third world country is a breeze compared to the harsh every day struggles and problems we are faced with. Honestly picking out lunch from a field of garbage is nothing to complain about next to these pains in the ass I have to deal with.
I forgot about my coffee at work and it went cold, so I reheated it but forgot about it again, now it is cold once more and in my opinion, undrinkable. FML.
Parking spaces too narrow for my SUV.
My local deli sliced my meat at a 1 rather than a ½ and now my sandwiches are too tall.
I payed $3.55 a gallon for gas, and then down the street saw it for $3.49 a gallon
McDonald’s only gave me 3 BBQ sauces for my 20 piece chicken nuggets so now I have to ration them.
The restaurant didn’t have coke so I had to get pepsi.

I took such a long shower this morning that the hot water ran out
