Have you ever thought about your day, and as if hit by a ton of bricks, realized that all the little things you did while awake, added up to how you felt when you were going to sleep at night? It never occurred to me that maybe it’s the little things that effect me, and not that one big misfortune, or that one exciting event that happened during my day. When you really sit back and think about what your life is made of, it isn’t the one or two big things that happen throughout the week. It is about all of the little moments that go overlooked. In the world we live in, everyone seems to be stuck in the every day struggle and rat race that we call life. We forget to look at the clouds and imagine what we see in them. We forget that the smell of fall leaves reminds us of being kids, along with a ton of other split second situations that we just take for granted. This video is called Moments, and it is just that. Give it a chance, and tomorrow when you wake up, don’t take every little thing for granted. It’s always the little things we should appreciate.
If a bear attacks your camp, you dont have to be faster than the bear. You only have to be faster than the slowest camper.
Americans generally like to hear good news. They like to believe that with the ushering in of a new President, all the old problems will disapear, and life will be grand again. They like to think that clean air is possible,and that fresh thinking will set the economy straight. But is anyone prepared for the worst? Michael Ruppert is a different kind of American. A former Los Angeles police officer turned independent reporter, he predicted the current financial crisis in his self-published newsletter “From the Wilderness” at a time when most Wall Street and Washington analysts were still in denial. In “Collapse,” Smith stylistically departs from his past films by interviewing Ruppert. Sitting in a room that looks like a bunker, Ruppert recounts his career as a radical thinker and spells out the crises he sees ahead. He draws upon the same news reports and data available to any Internet user, but he applies a unique interpretation. He is especially passionate over the issue of “peak oil,” the concern raised by scientists since the 1970s that the world will eventually run out of fossil fuel. While other experts debate this issue in measured tones, Ruppert doesn’t hold back at sounding an alarm. He portrays a future that resembles apocalyptic science fiction. Check out the trailer and decide for yourself if you think the end is near.

This amateur video shows us how small everything is compared to the mighty Burj Dubai, the tallest building in the world. The Burj Dubai is the tallest man-made structure ever built, at 2,684 ft. Construction began on 21 September 2004, and the tower is expected to be completed and ready for occupancy on 4 January 2010. The building is part of the 0.8 sq mile flagship development called “Downtown Burj Dubai” at the “First Interchange” along Sheikh Zayed Road, near Dubai’s main business district. The tower’s architect is Adrian Smith. The total budget for the Burj Dubai project is about US$4.1 billion, and for the entire new “Downtown Dubai”, US$20 billion. If this video doesn’t make you shit your pants from the sheer amazment of height I don’t know what will. Chalk one up for the window washers for this building of being one of the scariest jobs in the world.

Miss Bugs is an art partnership between a boy and a girl who spray and stick their art onto neglected walls in London. They also produce stunning limited edition prints, each hand finished by Miss Bugs with a wide range of materials including gold leaf, ink, aerosol and even magazine cuttings. Miss Bugs prints include dark and humorous themes, mixing religion with pornography and taking a swipe at the established art world (most recently Damien Hirst). They use iconic symbols as a source of inspiration, with imagery such as Bugs Bunny, He-Man, Wonder Woman or King Kong re-mixed to represent a personal idea or cultural stance. The male half of the duo was born in Bristol in 1979 and is the creative force. The female half has the role of muse and lookout. Miss Bugs draws inspiration from television, cartoons, news events, celebrities and religion. You can check out their website here.
Ever since I got back east from L.A. I have been on a shoe mission to find the coolest and most affordable kicks I can get my hands on. The Wu Tang Nikes I posted a few weeks back are basically a dream that will never happen. 5 grand? How about I pay down some credit cards or student loan payments before I start rocking a years rent on my feet. $200 is where I draw the line, and how funny is it that these new Pumps are just that price. Theres only one small problem, that being that only 31 pairs are on the entire planet Earth. Thats less than half the number that were made for the Wu Tang. With so few pairs being available, there is a lottery that you must enter to even have a shot at getting these. They are being put out by Bodega in Boston, which in my opinion, is one of the coolest stores Ive ever been into. Picture this. You walk into a regular looking Bodega. Food, drinks, a guy at the counter, it all seems normal, until you walk close enough to the drink cooler, and it opens automatically. You walk INTO the soda machine which opens up into a full fledged shoe store with rare kicks, sick hip hop beats playing, and a lot of people just hanging around. Im not going to tell you where it is, I dont want to spoil you. Do some research and set out on the adventure to find one of the best and coolest stores in Bean Town. Check these pumps out and wish me luck in the lottery.
The Bodega “Outback” is individually numbered, specially packaged in military spec ammo box with a limited edition tee and dog tag. It will retail for $200. There are 31 pair total on the planet Earth.
lately I have been getting more and more frustrated with Facebook due to the overwhelming barrage of garbage posted every two seconds. It is slowly turning into a spam filled heap of shit, with the help of power losers who support all this crazy nonsense. It is about time people are informed of all the things they do on Facebook that show everyone how big of a loser they are, so in a way I am just trying to help people, because that’s the kind of guy I am. If you partake in any of these crimes listed below you seriously need to slow down, take a deep breathe, and re-evaluate life.
7. Change Your Status Every 13 Minutes
There are many types of status changers that result in nothing more than people thinking you are a giant loser. One type is the guy/girl who writes subliminal messages to attract a guy or a girl when in reality it is making you look like an obsessed “swim-fan” weirdo. The ultimate loser status updater is the twat who thinks he or she is god’s gift to all humans and feels the need to let everyone know what they are doing at all times. I don’t care if you are chewing gum on your couch watching Grey’s Anatomy. Stop being an arrogant attention craving ass, and get out for a change, you’re not a celebrity, no one cares. The status updates that, by far are the worst, is when someone leaves a 5 paragraph song quote, reciting some depressing sappy love song. Stop feeling sorry for yourself, step out from behind the cyber space wall and actually tell whoever you’re thinking about how you feel, it will save you a lot of time when you the person tells you flat out that you are a creep and want nothing to do with you.
6. Poke People
Are you really using the “poke” button to get a guy/girl’s attention? I’ve used the poke button purely as a joke, but some people actually think this is a way of telling someone they are interested. If you for a second think by poking someone isn’t creepy/immature/ridiculous/ boarder line in danger of getting a restraining order slapped on your ass, you need to look yourself in the mirror and get a clue.
5. Mobile Upload Pictures Taken of Yourself in the Bathroom With Your Iphone
I don’t know what the thinking behind this heinous act entails. What I do know is they have this crazy gadget called a camera and you use it to take pictures. If you don’t have a single friend in the world that can take a picture of you, maybe you should stop taking pictures of yourself in a dirty bathroom and get out and find a friend. If you want to show off your new cool cellphone then you’re living in 1996, because even my 7 year old cousin has an Iphone and it’s not something to really brag about anymore. Taking model-esque pictures of yourself in the bathroom mirror let’s everyone know you are A. a tool B. have way too much time on your hands and C. you’re a loser.
4. Use the Like Button Way too Much
Everyone hits the like button every now and then, it’s a decent little feature. It’s not a decent little feature when you hit the like button on every single thing ever posted on facebook. “My dog just got hit by a car and got both his legs amputated and is now in a wheel chair.” LIKE BUTTON. Why do you like that you sicko and why can you not just write a comment. Stop being so lazy and actually give a little more intel on the subject you like so much.
3. Are A Member of Over 200 Groups
The group feature is nice on Facebook as it let’s people who share a common interest collectively share thoughts and information regarding their passion of the subject. When you are part of 7 thousand groups you are doing nothing more than being a group whore. Take a look at your groups you have joined and see if they are really something you want to be a part of. When I see a notification that in one day you joined “I Love Slores”, “Fans of School Chicken Patties” and “I wear shirts sometimes” (all real groups) I can assume you need to join a group for losers.
2. Promote For a Club or Bar
Everyone loves bars and clubs, everyone hates the guy/girl who promotes for bars and clubs. If you like a place, and want to let people know about it, tell them in person, and maybe give a shout out about an event from time to time. When you send out 8 club promotions a day it just gets down right ridiculous and rude. Don’t you realize not a single person looks at these club events and says “Wow awesome Club Bliss is having a top-hat party and the world renowned “DJ Play My Ipod Playlist” is spinning, I’m definitely going.” Is the free $10 dollar cover and free Bud Light drafts really worth your friends hating being friends with you on facebook? Get a real job and stop being a loser.
1. You Play Farmville
At first it was Mafia Wars which is still being played by the mass population of losers out there, you just requested help in Cuba with the Arrange A New York Drug Shipment job, thanks yea I’ll definitely help…not. Now the big thing sweeping the loser nation is Farmville. You’re playing Farmville, seriously come on. When you let everyone know you just completed level 1 of Grapes mastery in FarmVille you are sending out your loser notification to the world. It’s not even like you’re playing a game that you get to be something out of the ordinary like a gangster (that’s why I give Mafia Wars somewhat of a pass), an alien killer, or master wizard, no no you get to live the life of a fucking farmer. If you actually play a game that you’re mission is to plant corn and plow fields of grain then you really have lost a grip on reality and have fell off the deep end.
