My friend posted a rapping parent video today. It’s the 3rd one that I’ve seen so I thought I’d have a throw down here on the ‘ole blog. I’m going to post all 3 and provide no commentary. Seriously, I’m going to say nothing.
After you watched all three videos, you get to make your voice heard by VOTING in the snazzy poll at the end. You can even drop some wisdom on us all in the comments section.
Now enough with this intro – let’s drop the beat on this throw-down!!
It’s Christmas time and I had a little afternoon wine to gussy up the courage to send Santa a video job application.
I’m pretty much perfect for the job as you’ll see. I’m not sure what I could have done to improve my chances. It IS all about knowing the right people though. So, if you know Santa or any little elves or even Rudolph, I would appreciate the referral.
I’m counting on getting this gig and I can be a little vindictive, which is something those who refuse to help me out, might want to remember. You’ll know what I’m talking about after you watch the video.
Actually, I’m going to quit talking (typing actually) and let you click on over to my video job pitch.
Not every job in front of the camera is acting…just ask anyone who’s seen a movie starring Kristen Stewart! I kid….I kid!
Besides actors, your screens are also graced with hosts delivering various content to you, on every screen that you own. As much as I’m known as a “funny guy”, my most-seen work in the biz, is as a host on America’s Minority Health Network (www.amhntv.com). AMHN plays in doctors’ waiting rooms across the country.
I know, I know…”hosting” sounds glamorous, right? Well, read on my friends. Oh…there’s video too.
OK, back to our originally scheduled blog. I started the Insanity workout today because my internal fitness level did not match my external appearance. I have a supercharged engine in a jalopy frame and it was time to get to the body shop. When I finished the workout this morning, I thought about some things that I had been talking about with women that I know. They all have various reasons for justifying why they don’t think a guy will work out. Some of them claim intuition, some resort to blaming it on “timing” and some just say that they aren’t willing to “settle”, but are uncomfortable discussing what is an unsettling…uh…settling situation.
Valentine’s Day gets a bad rap as a corporate holiday, but in reality it is…well, it’s so much worse. It’s so bad that it doesn’t even warrant a day off for our valiant postal workers. In fact, it would seem to me that they have to work extra hard on this day. You can take that to bank. I mean, literally, you can take it to the bank because the banks are open on this “holiday”.
To make matters worse, this is the most exclusionary holiday on the calendar. Another saint’s day, Patrick to be exact doesn’t require one to be Irish; anyone can get filthy drunk on this holiday. That’s inclusion. President’s Day is coming up next and we’ve all voted for somebody that won. If you didn’t vote, then you have probably at least been screwed by presidential policies at some point. We all get to enjoy the holiday. As I rack my brain, every single holiday other than Valentine’s Day is for us all.
What about this day devoted to St. Valentines? Read the rest of this entry
I like writing, but it would be so much better to get paid for it. I came across this opportunity to submit a blog sample to this company starting a website for single people. They were looking for funny, unique views. I submitted my DalyDose of…10 Single Resolutions and they responded that they would like a 500 word sample using their test topic. The test topic is “Does phone sex count as a date?”.

Here we go again. I have embarked on a personal “Getting Back To Warrior” program. Part of that includes restarting P90X which I did 2-3 weeks of before with my friends. Now, I’m starting it again and I’m doing it by myself in the my apartment, but I’m still connected with some friends via email and a Facebook group. Now we don’t have scheduling issues and traffic to keep us from working out.
Keep reading. There’s more…including VIDEO!

I flew Southwest earlier this week, across the country to Orlando for a conference. I didn’t get the coveted Boarding Group A Position 01 boarding pass like my friend Mara. Nope, I was herded in with the other cattle only to be reminded that Southwest is no frills. Of immediate importance to me was that this flight would have no movie. This allowed me to peruse the entire SkyMall magazine with all of its temptations including this cool pair of sunglasses with a video camera built in. I’m not sure how I’ve gone this long without those. I mean they shade your eyes, but could help you uncover the truth. That’s deep…deeper than my pockets so I didn’t get the things.
When I was done shopping, I didn’t know what to do, so I picked up that other magazine. You know the one, the “in-flight” magazine. I knew it existed on other airlines because that’s where I usually find out which movie is playing. I promise that will be the last time I mention that Southwest has no cinematic entertainment…I promise.
I was surprised to learn that I had so much…uh…to learn in that other magazine. What did I learn? Read on, my friends and get edified…
I am going a bit crazy and I have no idea what this blog entry will be about. I am making it up as I go along folks. Don’t fear…I am a highly trained improvisor and this should end up making sense. Hopefully, there will be some insight and some “funny” along the way. Now that I’ve set expectations WAY too high, let’s get going!
YouTube is amazing. It’s like the digital scrapbook of our world, but it’s crazy. Sometimes it’s crazy fun, sometimes it’s crazy creepy, sometimes it’s crazy crazy and sometimes…well, you get the picture. It’s all kinds of crazy. These videos aren’t all “fresh and new”, but they all fit in with the loose excuse of a theme that I got going on. Enjoy all the videos below!
