Anybody who has ever gone back to a high school reunion knows just how some kids have really changed since graduation day, particularly when it comes to their high school yearbook photos. Take a look at these unlikely looking rock n’ roll stars before they became famous after their school photo was taken, from Kurt Cobain of Nirvana to Steven Tyler from Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, Gene Simmons of KISS, to Eddie Van Halen to name just a few!
FWP or First World Problems…..Really? Not even close when it comes to Third World Problems. This video is a take-off of the original “First World Problems” shot in Haiti to underscore how rediculous our complaints are about our so called “problems” and ask for donations to help bring clean water to people who need it!
What would you do with your life if money was no object? An amazing lecture from the late Alan Watts. Watts was a British philosopher, writer, and speaker, best known as an interpreter and proponent of Eastern philosophy for a Western audience. He moved to the United States in 1938 and began Zen training in New York, received a master’s degree in theology, and became an Episcopal priest. In 1950, he left the ministry, moved to California, and joined the faculty of the American Academy of Asian Studies. Watts wrote more than 25 books and articles on subjects important to Eastern and Western religion, introducing the then-burgeoning youth culture to The Way of Zen (1957), one of the first bestselling books on Buddhism. His legacy has been kept alive by his son, Mark Watts, and by many of his recorded talks and lectures that have found new life on the Internet, like this one about money!
After a three-day silence, Big Bird appeared on Saturday Night Live‘s Weekend Update to comment about his newfound fame after he was mentioned on Wednesday night’s presidential debate. The huge yellow bird said, “I got a million tweets,” but when Seth Meyers asked him if he was on Twitter, he replied, “No, I’m a bird, tweeting is how we talk.” Watch the entire segment & enjoy!
With all the checking about what facts were true or not during the recent Presidential debate, Jimmy Fallon decided to do some checking about other random facts that may not have an ounce of credibility in them either:)
if you’re the best athlete in the world, probably most other sports seem easy too. Michael Phelps made it happen when he sunk a 154-foot putt! As any golfer will tell you, most long putts are from about 50-feet away, but all-time Olympic swimming champion Michael Phelps has already proven he’s not just a regular guy with 22 Olympic medals. Watch this video to see him sink an amazing 154 foot putt on the 6th hole in a pro-am event at Kingsbarns Scotland!
How does a white samoyed-husky mix dog find his missing owner in a hospital 2 miles away after not even knowing where his master had gone? That’s the ultimate story of man’s best friend, John Dolan and his dog, Zander! This lovesick dog slipped out of his house in a hunt for his missing owner who lay in a hospital bed after Zander had moped around the house very sad about John Dolan being gone. How Zander found where he was and navigated a pretty tricky route though unfamiliar neighborhoods and across a busy highway, no one will ever know, but this 70 pound, 7 year old husky tracked him down with an ending that only happens in the movies. Enjoy!
Steve’s passing one year ago, October 5, 2011, that was a sad and difficult time for all of us. This short video is a reﬂection on his extraordinary life and the many ways he made the world a better place with Apple! No company has ever inspired such creativity or set such high standards for itself. And this video from Apple honors Steve and his spirit to forever be the foundation of Apple. As the creators say, We share the great privilege and responsibility of carrying his legacy into the future.
Best lesson yet on the effects of Bullying!

“Musical Graffiti Fan”! One of the most “liked” and “shared” posts on my facebook personal page and facebook fan page this past week!

Ain’t it the truth:)
“Don’t Judge Us”! One of my top 3 posts on my facebook pages this past week with “likes”, “shares” and “comments”!
Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, in his first TV appearance since Facebook’s IPO, sat down for a rare interview with the TODAY Show’s Matt Lauer to talk about company’s milestones, movement into mobile, and Mark’s wardrobe. The interview begins with Zuckerberg’s announcement Facebook had officially reached the incredible mark of 1 billion users in September, and later in a funny moment he admits that he does wear virtually the same clothes everyday. “I mean, I wear the same thing every day, right? I mean, it’s literally, if you could see my closet,” Zuckerberg said, adding that he owns “maybe about 20″ of his staple gray t-shirt and keeps them all in “one drawer.”
Cute video posted by his dad, 4 year old Malcolm from Maine’s first descent of the first ramp on Hellion at Highland Park Mountain Bike Park with a video camera attached to his helmet, shows Malcolm enjoying not only the incredible trails, but the supportive friendly community and staff. His dad adds that it’s a wonderful place for kids to get together to ride and have fun. The video is about 9 minutes, but you’ll get the idea of the fun Malcolm’s having in the first couple of minutes, especially at about 43-seconds, where the 4-year-old says, “Oh yeah, buddy!”
Ever do something silly, stupid, embarrassing, ridiculous, crazy, thoughtless, risky, senseless, dangerous….well, you get the idea….and the result was probably, “Oops, my bad”! Take a look!
Cadets from the U.S. Military Academy Corps of Cadets perform their version of the hottest dance out there now, “Gangnam Style.” The Cadets are also quick to point out, this was done on their own free time, and paid for out of their own pockets, and using their own equipment and talent to put together this video. They didn’t skip any training or class, this video came at a cost to no one but themselves! Enjoy!
But let’s not forget the U.S. Naval Academy 22nd Company Spirit Spot below, filmed and edited by Mark Vetere of 22nd Company, DoubleBond Productions. And again doing it on their own time and not on the government clock or payroll!
