Random Thoughts For Luchador Fantastico Friday July 11, 2008

During one of the many evening rainstorms in Puerto Vallarta, I stumbled across some Luchador Wrestling on T.V. Coming from the home of RING-A-DING-A-DONG-DANDY, Ed Whalen, The British Bulldog and Stampede Wrestling, I just had to share the experience.

Mexican Luchadorian Wrestling is a thing of beauty….pure beauty!

First – I’m not saying that I come to terms with this tragedy, but this is the only article I’ve found that can somewhat justify the Bertuzzi signing … Somewhat being the key term.

Second – The STATE OF THE WEB SUMMER ’08 (via. Mr. Boley)

Best part about this illustration is the explanation of getting Rick Rolled.

Third – Man there a lot of links to videos this weeks – JOURNEY AT THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH (via kurt)



Fourth – Getty images teams up with Flickr. Hmmm… I wonder if they’d be interested in the 3,521 photos of me smoking on my Mexican Vacation? hmmm…. I really wonder. (via superblue)

Fifth – ummm. Wow? Techno + American Appreal-esque Model + Roster = wow!

thunderheist – jerk it (contest cut) from thatgo on Vimeo. (via. ““

Sixth – One of my favorite web sites and Vector resources – GoMedia has relaunched their Corporate Blog and Web Magazine. All I can say is wow! What a great job. Absolutely Stunning.

If the new c.t.overdrive is a fifth of that, I will be proud as shite.

Seventh – Be Like Kanye and Drink Vodka!

Dog Days Tuesday June 24, 2008

I think it’s the dogs days of summer for the internet right now. I’m sorry, but it’s such a boring place right now. I guess everyone would rather be in the sun than pushing pixels.

Well it looks like I found someone who is still doing something interesting. Below is the video Where the Hell is Matt? An amazing little video of Matthew Harding’s 42 country odyssey around the world. And if you watch all 4 minutes and you don’t have a smile at the end … you need a pulse.

Porto Cristo Monday September 10, 2007

What can I say I’m back again after a week of sun and insanity on the lovely Island of Mallorca.

Welcome to the lovely view from the smoke towers along the Porto Cristo coast, right besides the Coves Del Drac. More pictures and vblogging insanity to come from Tamara and myself … Once I pry myself off the floor of John Lennon International Airport. (A future post will detail my distaste for John Lennon International Airport)

What can I say WISH U WHERE HERE.

Well, actually not here this very second, because that would mean you’d be sleeping on concrete.

Oh and just for fun, how about some more stupidity.

The Namesake Tuesday August 21, 2007

I’m heading up to Dublin tomorrow for a three day tour of the Nation’s captial. More importantly I’m catching the Foo Fighters & Nine Inch Nails at Madlay Park for BudRising Festival. I’m stoked as hell to be back on the road again. Because of this I really don’t have much to write about, so I’ll post a little clip of The Namesake (My cousin Dian’s wonderful son Conor) trying to blow out my aunt’s Birthday cake. The little bugger is so freaking adorable, but just can’t get the cake blowing out part. His expression at the end is priceless.

Anyways, I do have more interesting VBlog’s in the pipelines, but uploading 28 MB files to Vimeo has become somewhat of a challenge. Note – it’s just a challenge and not a problem. And for the record Mr.Oates they do include some of Ireland’s beautiful scenery.

Yeah Feaking Muppet

Catch you all in Dublin.

IFOF Tuesday August 14, 2007

It’s been a while since I’ve had the technology available to pull this off. Anyways, another installment of my lame attempt at vblogging.

So if you haven’t guessed it yet, I’ve been having epic technical difficulties, which is why you’ll have to forgive me for the briefness of this video. I promise in the future, you’ll get seaside videos and tours of breweries. But for now as I figure shit out you get my ugly mug and rain.

Yes, it hasn’t rained this much during an Irish summer since the 1700’s.
