So, by now I'm sure pretty much everyone has heard about the "ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE". All in all a pretty cool & fun way to raise $ for charity w/the app. premise being if you dump buckets of ice water over your head you get out of donating $ to charity. The only flaws I see in this idea are #1: YOU SHOULD DONATE REGARDLESS. #2: IT SEEMS THAT DIFF. CHARITIES ARE CLAIMING "OWNERSHIP" OF THE CHALLENGE. (I've done a little research & it looks like the concept actually originated w/ALS.). #3: MANY PEOPLE ARE POSTING VIA SOCIAL MEDIA SITES HOW SEV. PEOPLE "AREN'T DOING IT RIGHT", (Not using enough water, cheating, etc. etc.). SERIOUSLY!?! If your intent on doing the challenge is "pure" & you're trying to do something good/charitable then go for it & the hell w/those that give you static!!!! I was rec. challenged & made a donatiion & took three 5 gallon buckets of ice water to the head. I then of course celebrated & did the "honorable" thing by drinking the beer that the ice had previously been keeping cold so as not to waste it. Anyway, even fmr. Pres. George W. Bush has taken the challenge. Rather than get all tech. about it I say just get in the spirit of the whole thing!!!
MAKE SURE TO TUNE IN TO THE SHOW THIS AFTERNOON!!! I'll be talking to Chef Duffy from "BAR RESCUE", (One of the most awesome shoes ever!!!!), & we'll be getting geared up to hang out w/him & all the Fox Rockers At The Rumble To The Peak pre-party & Bike Run today & tomorrow w/proceeds going to benefit Children's Hospital!!!
Unexpected death is always shocking & often devastating. Yes, it is a part of life but that does not take away from the impact. Finding out about the tragic death of Robin Williams today was really a blow. Truly an amazing & talented man I can only say that his untimely passing has truly shaken me. Robin was truly an inspiration, loved by so many & I can only hope that he has found peace. Myself? I am going to choose to celebrate this man's life & all he gave to so many & not dwell on how he left us.
THANK YOU ROBIN FOR ONE OF THE GREATEST GIFTS EVER, THE GIFT OF LAUGHTER.

Don't get me wrong, the current "realism" when depicting superheroes is cool most of the time & I'm sure there are those that wonder what the effects of a Kryptonite condom on Superman would be, or if Mr. Fantastic's stretching powers could assist in a long distance relationship but I'm trying to get what the artist was going for w/this one?
So, The Central Valley has def. put itself on the map this week!!! California Chrome is going for The Triple Crown and two baseball blayers one from Sanger & one from Clovis have just been drafted into the major leagues!!!!! Being Sanger High Alumni it makes it that much sweeter for me.

So, I don't know about you, but I'm a HUGE PINK FLOYD FAN!!!! I was lucky enough top check out Brit Floyd last year & was able to take my wife & no @#$%, my wife ket arguing w/me that it was actually Floyd. From the lights to the animation to the vocal to the infatables, THEY ARE RIGHT ON!!!

So, a band by the name of Spirit is claiming that Led Zeppelin stole the intro for "Stairway To Heaven" from their 1968 instrumental "Taurus" below are samples of both songs. Let's put this one to bed.
So the argument has been made that "reanimating" dead stars is dissrespecful & possibly even a violating of said stars civil liberties & that they should be left to R.I.P. I dunno, the tech. is kinda cool. I think if done properly it pays homage to the fans & the star. On the other hand could this lead to fans getting duped when going to a live show? What do you think?
Don't get me wrong, I'm just as much of a fan of a good "FWD." as the next person but sometimes I think the term "viral" may actual be a warning sign. Some of these things truly cause the viewer to resemble a cat playing w/a laser pointer. Maybe the virus is "MIND NUMBING DINGLEBERRYITIS". Again, not taking a way from the humor or wit behind stuff like this it just amazes me what actual "goes viral".
So, recently I engaged in a theological discussion w/ a friend of mine on, "Whether or not animals have souls?". NO QUESTION IN MY MIND THEY DO!!! Not only that but I happen to think in mant ways critters match or even surpass human beings in things. Reaffirming my beliefs is the attached video. We all know Queen rocks & app. the bands appeal knows no bounds, even inter-species!!!!
DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR!!!!! The way I look at it we all have things we're not good at. Personally I'm not good at math & have pretty much no skills when it comes to working on cars. Some people may not be good at sports, or maybe public speaking. Now, don't get me wrong IF AT FIRST YOU DON'T SUCCEED TRY TRY AGAIN!!! I'm all for praticing & learning things. That being said I'm resolved to the fact that my male modeling career doesn't look like it's gonna take off. I think it's important that when you see an ULTIMATE FAIL, especially if you care for the person, you should step in & do or say something. THAT BEING SAID ALLOW ME TO DEDUCT TWO MIN. & FORTY SEVEN SECONDS FROM YOUR LIFE. ENJOY THE FOLOWING!!!
So, I have long held on to the belief that aliens do in fact exist. If they have ever needed an incentive to make themselves know I believe this is it!!! The fact that these wack jobs exist is disturbing enough. The fact that they have gained notoriety,...DOUBLEY SO!!! I think it's high time E.T. came down, made an appearence w/Fallon on The Tonight Show & subsequenly scheduled a Death Match w/these two!!!
