............................. May 31, 2010

It's been months since a post has been posted.  Don't know what to say for ourselfs.  Oops, I guess.

Sam and I have been working with frequent guest Daniel and Jew friend David on a book.  An actual book on paper with words.  Its going slowly but surely, once we've gotten more organized with it I'd like to get some teaser stuff up here for the few of you that care.  Jimmy is in London and is from what I hear having a wonderful time.  Life besides that is painfully normal.  Just powered through Sex and the City at work, major disappointment if I may add.  Its also dawning upon me that I'm moving in like two months.  Its scary yet exciting.  One major goal I have for when I'm in Austin (somewhat on my trip and definatly when I move) is to get better about writing regularly.  I figure I'll have less distractions and more motivation.  Hopefully this thing will be less negected as well.  My main focus will have to go to writing that may give me monitary gain. I have several ideas for stories that've been bouncing around my head forever.  Another project I've got lined up is a music video ( last time I did that I think I didnt have a drivers licence).  Hopefully all of these things get done, if not at least one.  Sorry to have disappointed those of you I've disappointed. Maybe I'll get something entertaining or hilarious up soon if ever.

I wanna be the very best

Like no one ever was

To catch them is my real test

To train them is my cause

I will travel across the land

Searching far and wide

Teach Pokemon to understand

The power that's inside


Gotta catch 'em all--

It's you and me

I know it's my destiny


Ooooh, you're my best friend

In a world we must defend


Gotta catch 'em all--

Our hearts so true

Our courage will pull us through

You teach me and I'll teach you

Day 3

Dear diary,
               I did some lifting after taking some NoX. I could definitely feel a difference in my workout. I could push out more reps with 10-15 lbs more than usual with less burn. Cardio was smoother than usual as well. Keep ya updated.

Project Awesome

Not that anyone reads this blog, but today I've decided to start seriously working out again. I haven't seriously worked out in about a year and a half, and so my fitness has dramatically decreased. Eating is definitely more enjoyable than moving around. But I thought I'd give it another shot and post the gains that I will see along the way.

Day 1: Today I bought a Nitric Oxide supplement, BSN's N.O. Xplode. Supposedly, nitric oxide is a vasodilator, meaning that it relaxes blood vessels so that more blood (and the nutrients with it) travel to the muscles faster. In short, you get stronger pumps and recover faster. I've been apprehensive to try N.O. in the past, but I thought "what the hell" and gave it a shot. N.O. Xplode contains nitric oxide, along with a negligible amount of creatine and a decent amount of caffeine. After taking two scoops, I definitely noticed that I had a little bit more energy. I may need a couple of days to feel the "energy and focus" that it claims to give.

It is pretty expensive ($35-$65 depending on where you buy it). I bought the lemonade flavor, and it's not the best tasting stuff in the world, but I've tasted much worse. It comes in powder form, and it reacts with water to create some carbonation somehow.

It is quite important that if you do decide to take this supplement, that you follow the directions on the label. I consumed two scoops right after dinner, and had massive diarrhea within 30 minutes. Apparently I was supposed to take it on an empty stomach. I should also note that there is about 100 mg of caffeine per scoop, which is making me piss every 10 minutes.

There are notable side effects to N.O. Xplode. As cited by some users: minor to severe headaches, diarrhea, sleeplessness (if you are caffeine sensitive), loss of sex drive/ erectile dysfunction, increased tension, among other symptoms. It should be noted that this only happens to some users, while other users experience no side effects. Long term effects of consuming nitric oxide is not clear, so I will probably stick to protein and creatine as far as supplements go. Nitric oxide is naturally produced in the body, and gives that post workout "swoleness" that people experience.

I will continue to write about my experiences in using this product, and post regularly concerning my workout gains.

Commencing: Project Awesome

Who the Fuck Wants an iPad?

Facebook is was an excellent portal to keep updated amongst your friends and fertilize their farms. With each new layout, it seems that Facebook Inc. attempts to achieve the highest levels of fuckery with each layout update. 

It's obvious what the main issue with the newest layout is: it tells you EVERYTHING
From shit you kind of care about to shit you don't give a shit about, the new layout keeps you up to date with every action your friends take on Facebook, in case you wanted to learn about them in order to kill them and live out their lives.

Specifically, it's the groups friends join. It is not uncommon for a user to be notified that "Bettie Blowjobs joined "I love slurping on the spam along with 23509235 other profiles." Who the fuck actually joins these groups for a purpose? I'll tell you who:

An occurring trend (but not the first of its nature) on Facebook is the tendency for users to join "Be the first 50,000 fans of this group and test and KEEP an iPad for FREE!!!!!!!!!!" You see, the internet dumbs down its users to levels that would be dangerous in the real world. Observe the "first 50,000 fans" portion. Even when the groups are over the 50,000 mark, people join these groups in blind stupidity. Why? Fuck me, I don't know. Who exactly is sponsoring this deal? It's definitely not Apple, they're not looking for testers. And even if they were, why would they recruit on Facebook? There are plenty of Mac-Panthers to fill the need. 
But there is one giant glaring fact: IT'S 50 FUCKING THOUSAND IPADS. You know these things retail around $500 right? Starting. Who in the hell has $25 million to blow out their ass? Because I need to sell them my goods.

Also, check out Geekologie. They have some great stuff up there. Here are some recent highlights:

Lego Nipples (NSFW) This is pretty self explanatory.
Robot Information Graphical A neat graphic with all pertinent robot info.
Chest Yams Just check it out, you will be better for it.
