The New Kicks

I recently went to the Nike store in Kittery, Maine and these shoes caught my eyes. Gators colors! How awesome is that!?

Another Grand Year of Homemade Olympics

My sister and I always compete in a Homemade Olympics. This year was the third year running. It started out good with a very close tie in the bike race. I beat my sister 15-4 in basketball. Narrowly out-threw her in the rock throw. Beat her by three seconds in the 100 meter race. And for the rest it was kind of back and forth. In the end, however, I beat her by winning 18.5 events and she won 5.5 events. It was very close and good fun.

Roller Coaster Canobie

My family and I are soon going to Canobie Lake Park. This prompted me to break out the ol' Roller Coaster Tycoon game and go for a recreation. My goal is that by August 18th (when we go to Canobie) I will have completed this. The video above is not mine, but somebody else's that I hope mine to be like.

I'd Buy This

Someone made a real life Flintstones car that actually works! It comes with an engine. It's only $3,000. If it's that cheap I can use the $850 I've saved up as a down payment! What happens when it rains though? Better get a prehistoric warranty.

How Did I Miss It?

I didn't even know The Smurfs had released the trailer. Wow. What the smurf?

The Most Interesting Man In The World

He doesn't always drink beer. But when he does. He prefers Dos Equis. I thought the commercials were losing their way and going more of the Chuck Norris route. However, they reclaimed their greatness with "If he were to give you a pat on the back you would list it on your resume." Enjoy the full list of Jonathan Goldsmith jokes.

"He could have been a doctor but chose to be a software engineer instead."
  • "He is the life of parties he has never attended."
  • "He once had an awkward moment, just to see how it feels."
  • "He's won trophies for his game face alone."
  • "His words carry weight that would break a less interesting man's jaw."
  • "If he were to punch you in the face, you would have to fight off the irresistible urge to thank him".
  • "His mother has a tattoo that reads 'son'".
  • "At museums he is allowed to touch the art."
  • "Sharks have a week dedicated to him."
  • "He can speak French, in Russian."
  • "He bowls overhand."
  • "He once punched a magician. That's right, you heard me."
  • "Both sides of his pillow are cool."
  • "If he were to pat you on the back, you would list it on your resume."
  • "When in Rome, they do as he does."
  • "He's won the same Lifetime Achievement Award...twice.
  • He could have been a doctor, but he chose to be a software engineer instead."
What a guy!

Ochocinco and Haynesworth. We're In For One Bumpy Ride.

The Patriots have never been the team to get a big free agent splash or make the big trade. They've dabbled in it with Corey Dillon and Randy Moss, but on the 28th of July, Bill Belichick did more than anyone thought he was capable of. He traded a 5th round pick for Albert Haynesworth and traded two late round draft picks for Chad Ochocinco. Hopefully Albert will pick up the pace and Ochocinco will celebrate. A lot. Watch out New York. Here we come.

Wipeout Yourself!

I was watching an episode of Wipeout and I saw an ad go across the bottom. It said that you can make your own Wipeout video. So I did, but it would only let me share it on Facebook and Twitter. Not Blogger. But you can go to wipeoutyourself.com and make your own video! How about that?

NCAA Football Mount Rushmore

Maybe Bush is a bust in the NFL, but he certainly wasn't in college. Tebow. Bush. Thorpe. Jackson. That's who you picked:

Jim Thorpe

Reggie Bush
Tim Tebow

More college action tomorrow. Now with LESS sanctions! Check back for NCAA basketball.

100th Post of July

In honor of the 4th of July I decided to post a picture of Ben Franklin with the number 100. On the 100 dollar bill. I've only reached 100 posts in a single month three times. The first in September of 2009. The second in October of 2010. The third in July of 2011. I came close to 100 in January of 2011, but fell five posts short. Now let's face it, this blog isn't gonna be around forever. And my main goal when it is all over, is to have 100 (or more) posts in each month. No matter the year. I'll keep it in mind, but let's celebrate 100! It's only July 29th. I could reach 110. Who knows?

Every Argument A Couple Could Have

Every Argument Every Couple Ever Has EVER. from Casey Donahue on Vimeo.

Pretty funny. They forgot the "Forgotten Anniversary" argument, however. Nice job.

Love That Dirty Water

Sorry I meant muddy water. Sorry again. Muddy CHICKEN! That's right Muddy Chicken. Apparently the Laser Show wasn't good enough for Josh Beckett. Beckett gave Pedroia a new nickname Muddy Chicken. We don't know what it means and frankly neither does Beckett. Anywho, Pedroia is at a 24 Game Hitting Streak. Oop, hold on. He just hit a home run. 25 games. But that's the most in the AL. Keep it going Pedey. You're having another MVP-type year.

Pixar Medley

Notice the lack of Cars. That's because they used songs from other people not original songs. Props to Randy Newman.

Judson Lappily Is At It Again

Not with an Evolution of Dance. But an Evolution of Touchdown Dance! Yes!

The Office Turns Ten

In honor of Dunder Mifflin's tenth birthday here are two videos:

Turns out Steve Carrell didn't know that song was gonna happen! Whaddaya know? To celebrate The Office's 10th Birthday here is a...uh, uhm....

That's right! I celebrated with an awkward pause!

Pirates Dream Scenario

As you know the Pittsburgh Pirates are in the NL Central race, were once in FIRST place, and are over .500. Now Andrew McCutchen and Joel Hanrahan are nice, but what would've happened if the Pirates hadn't passed up on Dave Littefield at General Manager. Hadn't traded Freddy Sanchez, Jason Bay, Jose Bautista, Nate McClouth Xavier Nady, Zach Duke, Matt Capps, John van Benchshotten, Jack Wilson, John Grabow, Jonah Bayliss, and Mike Gonzalez. What if Littefield went out and got free agents like Mark Prior, Jason Jennings, AJ Houston, Chad Billingsley, Wade Miller, Jason Marquis, Matt Cain, Manny Delcarmen, Carlos Pena, Cliff Floyd, Nick Swisher, Jeff Mathis, Russ Adams, and Brian Wilson. Things would be different right? They'd be in first place day after day. Imagine the pitching rotation.

Zach Duke
Mark Prior
Matt Cain
Chad Billingsley
Jason Marquis

Imagine the bullpen. A bullpen so loaded, starters are in it.

Wade Miller
Jason Jennings
AJ Houston
Brian Wilson
Mike Gonzalez
John van Benchshotten
John Grabow
Jonah Bayliss
Matt Capps
Manny Delcarmen
Joel Hanrahan

Imagine the lineup. Stacked throughout.

Andrew McCutchen
Nick Swisher
Jason Bay
Carlos Pena
Jose Bautista
Cliff Floyd
Xavier Nady
Jack Wilson
Nate McClouth

And a bench so loaded. Too many good players.

Jeff Mathis
Russ Adams
Freddy Sanchez
Billy Johnson
Glenn Geary

Wouldn't it be crazy? Wouldn't you love to be a fan of the Pirates? This is the project I came up with.

This winter I will do a franchise with the Pirates on MLB 2K7. This will be the team. On January 27th, 2012, I will alert you to how everyone is doing. Then maybe the Pirates will wonder what might've been.

New Muppet Things! New Muppet Things!

Crash Nebula theme song anyone? No? Ok well Disney has released a new Muppet Poster:

A new Muppet standee:

And an official Muppets synopsis:

On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino house band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate.

No new trailers yet, but I am sure they are coming!

Welcome (Back) To Jurassic Park!

In news that is awesome, Stephen Spielberg, director, announced that a Jurassic Park 4 is in the making. So that'll be awesome. Doesn't it seem like movies that could use CGI today always have another installment in the franchise? I hope it's good. Movies that continue the franchise after ten or twenty years are always good too. Same with TV shows. Like Hawaii Five-O, Toy Story. You know the works? This probably just saved the Jurassic Park land in Islands of Adventure. With Harry Potter expanding into the Lost Continent, I thought it would take over Jurassic Park as well. That may not be the case!

Herzlich Power!

Mark Herzlich was a Boston College linebacker who was projected to be the number two pick in the NFL Draft three years ago. But then he was diagnosed with cancer. He fought through and made a comeback last year. He went undrafted this year, but the New York Giants signed him as an undrafted free agent. Congrats Mark! Keep persevering!

P.S. The Giants just went up a point.

Spiderman Trailer

Doesn't look that bad. I hope they have alot of the scenes from Spiderman's point of view. That was really cool. Hopefully Todd Manning isn't Spiderman also.

PGA Mount Rushmore

It's golf time. And as Happy Gilmore would say. Do you want to see the picks, eh? I just may!

Arnold Palmer
Tiger Woods
Sam Snead
Jack Nicklaus

Tennis tomorrow. Serve.

Simpsons Making Double Takes At Comic-Con

The Simpsons have been making me a little skeptical that they just might not make it to a 25th season. But the plans they announced at Comic-Con piques my intrest. Hopefully they can make it to 25 seasons with these interesting stories. Here's Entertainment Weekly's list:

  • The 500th Episode will air February 19th and involve the risk of the Simpsons family getting kicked out of Springfield.
  • Theodore Roosevelt Kiefer Sutherland and Jane Lynch will guest star. Matt Groening found old recordings of Roosevelt and it will actually be the President's voice.
  • There will be more Banksy gags this year.
  • Sandy Koufax will be featured on The Simpsons.
  • There will be another DVD release of The Simpsons Movie and it will include the musical number about Alaska that was cut from the movie.
  • The "Nedna" voting will continue online.
  • Lisa is seeking romance and will keep her options open. Which includes Milhouse.
  • There will be an episode telling the story of Moe's bar rag.
  • There will be an episode of The Simpsons where they show their Christmas 30 years into the future. There will also be an iPhone app called Angry Burns.
  • Bart may turn 11.

This Might Be Interesting?

My dad recently told me about a reboot DC Comics is doing. All of their comics are going back to Issue #1. Superman's at 900-something? Donezo. 1. Batman at 800-something. No, you're donezo. This kind of interested me, but none of the DC comics really interest me. I guess Aquaman, Batman, and the Green Lantern, and the Flash are all right, but not enough to get me to read them every month. Maybe if Spiderman or Captain America or The Fantastic Four did that I'd start reading 'em. I guess I'm more of a Marvel man.

Huh. Should I Have Run Into Jeffy?

Yes I see the Bruins, Red Sox, and Celtics pennants, but for today just look at the lighthouses. Closely. I've posted pictures of a Nubble Lighthouse that I go to every year in Maine. It's on an island that seperates the tourists. It's got a house with a hallway that connects it to the lighthouse. Look familiar? The Family Circus family was there! How weird is that! The same week. That's so cool. It says they're on a vacation in Boston, but the Nubble is in Maine. Do the artists really try anymore though?

Now I Don't Normally Take Things From Cal

Because Cal is his own guy. But this thing was just too great not to share. Enjoy the greatest iCarly moment of all time.

ESPN Just Made My Day

Because they said that Dustin Pedroia is probably gonna be in the Hall of Fame in 13-27 years! They compared him to Roberto Alomar! And I think it's quite possible! He's hitting .303 and he's got a MVP and Rookie of the Year, Gold Glove, and Silver Slugger! He's also a 3-Time All-Star and counting. Don't forget about the World Series ring!

Send the Pig

Rabbit: "I can't believe it. The plan worked. We caught the Backson. Now Owl, you can go and get Christopher Robin."

Owl: "Oh no no. I'm far too important to do that. Kanga, off you go."

Kanga: "No, I'm with child."

Roo: "Send the pig."

Could there have been a better quote? I recently saw Winnie the Pooh at Smitty's Cinema. A place where you can have a meal AND watch the movie. But anyway when Pooh falls in the hole those are the lines uttered. Roo was so perfect for that line. There were little kids in the theater who would laugh at just about everything, but they didn't laugh at that. It's the way Disney has that kind of humor. Jokes for children and adults. Like in Toy Story there were some parts where everyone could find themselves laughing. Winnie the Pooh did just that. Except in original animation.

Harry Potter Challenge

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 comes out in theaters yestersay so I decided to do a post about a challenge. Winnie the Pooh comes out today too but I've posted enough about Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, and the rest of the gang.

1) What was your favorite book? My favorite book was the Prisoner of Azkaban.

2) What was your favorite movie? My favorite movie was the Chamber of Secrets (but probably the Deathly Hallows Part 2 when I see it.)

3) Who is your favorite male character? My favorite male character is Fred Weasley. Too bad he had to die.

4) Who is your favorite female character? My favorite female character is Hermoine Granger. If it wasn't for her, Gryffindor would be in shambles.

5) What house would you want to be in? Gryffindor because Ravenclaw's passwords are too hard, Slytherin is bad, and Hufflepuff has a weird name.

6) Would you rather own the Invisibility Cloak, Elder Wand, or Resurrection Stone? The Invisibility Cloak because there is no such thing as magic so a wand is useless and the stone only brings ghosts back.

7) Who is your favorite professor? Flitwick, obviously. He's the only choice. Not McGonagall or Snape or any of the others. Oh but there's Hagrid.

8) Who is your favorite creature? Kreacher! Haha only joking. Decided to make a pun there. Probably Dobby. Maybe Hedwig.

9) Out of the things the films forgot from the books which one would you have wanted to see? S.P.E.W. Hermoine's little elf welfare thingy-majig.

10) Did you enjoy the books? Yes.

I Am In Maine!

What Happend in My Birth Year?

Of 1998. This is what the site says word for word.

In 1998, the world was a different place. In 1998, the year of your birth, the top selling movie was Armageddon. People buying popcorn in the lobby had glazing eyes while looking at the poster. People were indeed watching movies in the cinema. Imagine the packed seats, the laughter, the excitement, the novelty.

Do you know who won the Oscars that year? The academy award for best movie was Shakespeare in Love. The academy award for best foreign movie was Life is Beautiful. The top actor was Roberto Benigni for his role as Guido Orfice in Life is Beautiful. The top actress was Gwyenth Paltrow for her role as Viola De Lesseps in Shakespeare in Love. The best director? Stephen Spielberg for Saving Private Ryan.

In the year 1998, the time when you arrived on this planet, books were still popularly read on paper, not on digital devices. Trees were felled to get the word out. The number one US bestseller of the time wasThe Street Lawyer by John Grisham. Oh, that's many years ago. Have you read that book? Have you heard of it? Look at the cover!

In 1998... Smoking is banned in all California bars and restaurants. Russia begins to circulate new rubles to stem inflation and promote confidence. Nineteen European nations agree to forbid human cloning. Suspected "Unabomber" Theodore Kaczynski pleads guilty, and accepts a sentence of life without the possibility of parole. The United States Senate passes Resolution 71, urging U.S. President Bill Clinton to "take all necessary and appropriate actions to respond to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs." The first XML specification is released. Two white separatists are arrested in Nevada, accused of plotting biological warfare on New York City subways. A 66-day blackout begins in Auckland, New Zealand. Data sent from the Galileo probe indicates that Jupiter's moon Europa has a liquid ocean under a thick crust of ice. In Oncale v. Sundowner Offshore Services, the Supreme Court of the United States rules that federal laws banning on-the-job sexual harassment also apply when both parties are the same sex. NASA announces the choice of United States Air Force Lt. Col. Eileen Collins as commander of a future Space Shuttle Columbia mission to launch an X-ray telescope, making Collins the first woman to command a space shuttle mission. The video game of the day was Metal Gear Solid.

That was the world you were born into. Since then, you and others have changed it.

The Nobel prize for Literature that year went to José Saramago. The Nobel Peace prize went to John Hume and David Trimble. The Nobel prize for physics went to Robert B. Laughlin, Daniel Chee Tsui and Horst Ludwig Störmer from the United States and Germany for their discovery of a new form of quantum fluid with fractionally charged excitations. The sensation this created was big. But it didn't stop the planets from spinning, on and on, year by year. Years in which you would grow bigger, older, smarter, and, if you were lucky, sometimes wiser. Years in which you also lost some things. Possessions got misplaced. Memories faded. Friends parted ways. The best friends, you tried to hold on. This is what counts in life, isn't it?

The 1990s were indeed a special decade. The Nineties saw the beginnings of the World Wide Web, originating at CERN. Email becomes popular. The Soviet Union dissolved. Living standards in East Asia and Europe generally improved. The Cold War ends. Iraqi forces invade Kuwait. A UN coalition force led by the US was sent to the Persian Gulf, and aerial bombing of Iraq began. The Kosovo War took place. The Ethiopian Civil War ends. Dolly, a sheep, is cloned. The Global Positioning System GPS becomes fully operational. Genetically engineered crops are developed for commercial use. Intel develops the Pentium processor. The Java programming language is created. Microsoft released Windows 95. In Los Angeles, riots occur after the police brutality case involving Rodney King. Great Britain hands sovereignty of Hong Kong to China. East Timor breaks away from Indonesian control. US president Bill Clinton was involved in the Lewinsky scandal. Dogme 95 becomes an important artistic movement in European film. Teen soap Beverly Hills 90210 has its long run. Baywatch becomes the most watched show in history. On MTV, reality television makes its beginning. Nelson Mandela is elected president of South Africa. Germany was reunified. The prediction of computer bug Y2K spreads fear.

Do you know what was on the cover of Life that year?

6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1... it's 1998. There's TV noise coming from the second floor. Someone turned up the volume way too high. The sun is burning from above. These were different times. The show playing on TV isPower Rangers in Space. The sun goes down. Someone switches channels. There's Sex and the City on now. That's the world you were born in.

Progress, year after year. Do you wonder where the world is heading towards?

We're gettin' it straight in 98 y'all
Ah, ooh love, yeah
Tired of all the talk they're talkin' all over this town
I'm tired of all the negativity that's goin' 'round

That's from the song Live by Lenny Kravitz.

In 1998, a new character entered the world of comic books: Silverclaw. Bang! Boom! But that's just fiction, right? In the real world, in 1998,Jae Head was born. And Bindi Irwin. Mia-Sophie Wellenbrink, too. And you, of course. Everyone an individual. Everyone special. Everyone taking a different path through life.
It's 2011.

The world is a different place.

What path have you taken?
