My kettlebell workout

April 13th, 2009 by Mike Nelson · 21 Comments

Now that we are all doing kettlebells all the time I thought it would be a good time to let you in on my own kettlebell workout (see photo). I think it’s pretty self explanatory, but what I like to do is put on my dress jock strap, grow a Freddy Mercury mustache, set a [...]

Vader. Chad Vader.

The mad geniuses of Blame Society Productions, Matt Sloan and Aaron Yonda, stood shoulder to shoulder with us as we did battle with the formidable “Empire Strikes Back“, Lucas’s seamless third installment in his epic biography of Lumpawarrump of Kashyyk.* You may recall that this is not our first collaboration, and they also did their [...]

You don’t say?

Overheard on a morning walk: Guy with shrink-wrapped batch on $4000 bike to other guy with shrink-wrapped batch on $5000 bike: “After it kicked me in the ass, I’m ready to jump back into the world of financial sales.” Fair enough, but please change clothes first.
But this is the one that really caught my attention. [...]

But then one thing lead to another, Kevin started doing his impression of Barbra Streisand at the end of “A Star is Born”; Bill started doing his impression of Kris Kristofferson at the beginning, middle and end of “A Star is Born”; Conor began throwing pennies at both of them.

Look behind you, laughing baby…

I was so engrossed by Sexman’s Watchmen review, I somehow missed this relative newcomer to the very well-represented “laughing baby” category on YouTube.
 

And it made me wonder, Is 77-million-view laughing baby’s team getting a little nervous?

Clearly – CLEARLY – the newcomer has the edge in cuteness over the veteran — check out that luxurious head [...]

A suggestion for lunch…

**Update: A little bit of closing the door after the cows have got out, but there is a slight language warning on this making it not entirely safe for work. (My apologies if you’ve been fired from your job and have to subsist on rattlesnake.)
