Dance dance dance! #27

Alright! So! today's blog post is all about dance, yea I'm aware i already did a day similar to this before... But I've been holding onto this video for ages and I've finally found others to pad it out with!

First off, we have a one legged ballet dancer dancing with a one armed girl!
LIMBLESS PEOPLE BEING LIMITLESS!!!
This video is so bad ass it makes me want to vomit kittens! good for them!


So the above video was just more or less padding for this!
The expression crew is one of my all time favorite dance crews ever! in this performance the music is done by  Yann Tiersen (also one of my favorite artists)... Long story short story shorter, its awesome and i wanted to share it with you guys.


This video was also meant to be padding but it might just be more impressive then the last one.
 For those of you who've played Dance Dance Revolution (aka DDR), there is a harder version made by ROXOR called In The Groove (or ITG)
People ended up hacking ITG machines in order to put custom songs into it like the above!
Some of the song custom charts get pretty insane!


Thanks for checking out today's post, hope you guys enjoyed and ill see you in a few days <3

EPIC AND AWESOME #26

Today's post is a mixture of many different things that are awesome AND that happend this week!
First we have Portal 2 which came out yesterday!

Nothing but pure awesome from this game. If you dont already own a copy of portal 2, get one! Its an amazing game! Also if you buy a copy for PS3 you get a free PC/mac copy of portal 2.



So over the past few months i've personally found that epic mealtime has lost some epic-ness... and its made me really sad... this is due to:
1- them removing the calorie counter
2- not being drunk enough in there episodes
3- not having enough girls
4- not making epic food that i actually want to eat.

In this new episode they made up for all of that... i drooled through the entire thing...



Hope you guys enjoyed and ill see you in a few days <3

DRAWING SKILLLLLLZ! #25

Today's Awesome post is all about drawing and art skillz (the 'z' makes it sound cool!)

Over the past month a certain cat has been exploding in popularity, no its not Garfield, Felix or the Cheshire cat..
I'm talking about a cat leaving a rainbow trail of awesome lead by a body made of a Poptart, that's right, Nyan cat. This speed drawing was made by David Kingaby, all his work is amazing and I'd highly suggest checking out his youtube channel (link in the bottom)

Next up is an awesome drawing of Hugh laury's character from House
For some reason Blogspot's not letting me upload it... so ill just give a link here



Lastly we have a literally jaw dropping video of Stephen Wiltshire drawing a panoramic view of rome, from memory.


Thanks for checking out today's post and ill see you guys in a few days <3

THINGS GOING DOWNHILL #24

Welcome to Awesome, the only place where you can find awesome videos hand picked by me!
Todays videos are all about human powered things going downhill (hopefully unlike this blog)... Enjoy!


So lets get the ball rolling already!
First up, we have downhill longboarding!
A longboard is a skateboard variant, similar to a surfboard or snowboard with wheels. It is used for cruising, downhill racing, slalom racing, sliding, and all around fun.


Latins on bicycles sponsored by redbull riding down stairs?
Sounds awesome!
And keeping with the theme of posting my personal favorite last 
We have the 666 rail! a 203metre rail, beside a cliff.


 
The 666 rail was so impressive that it was even featured on a "Real or fake?" type German television show
Even years later Chris Haffey (as seen above) was able to complete the daunting 203m challenge with a camera crew around. Truly an awesome man.
If you want to watch him redo the rail ill post a link right here http://www.rollernews.com/chris-haffey-666-rail-fake-or-real_15051.html


Thanks for checking out todays post!
Much love and ill see you guys in a few days.

JAPANESE GAMESHOOOOOOOOOOW! #22

That's right the title says it all! Today's Awesome is all about Japanese game shows and how awesome they are!
I love Japanese game-shows just because of how brutal and degrading they are... Canada and the US aint got shit on japan.
from reducing a man to tears, to dropping a man into nearly boiling water!
And last but not least, when you want to go to the extreme pain... you go for nutshots...


Hope you guys enjoyed todays post!

Awesome blast from the past #21

Remember back in the day when nintendo was edgy and badass? Todays post is my top three favorite Nintendo 64 commercials!

I remember when I first saw this commercial. I was in the first grade watching tv, and as soon as I saw Mario kick Yoshi my freakin world got turned up side down... This is the kind of stuff Nintendo needs to bring back!

Edgy, bad-ass, playing against the rules! old Nintendo was one BAMF
Good god, my mouth is salivating just watching that ad....

We can all agree that the Nintendo 64 was a fantastic console. It featured some of the greatest games of all time, it introduced us to the modern console FPS, and it had the best multiplayer experience at the time. Yet over the years nintendo seem's to have lost their edgy side.

So what do you guys think, is it possible for nintendo to make a comeback into the videogame market? or are they only going to continue sinking into the abyss of casual gamers and mothers wanting to try out wii fit.

Thanks for reading and ill see you guys in a few days <3

GET DOWN! #19

Get Down is a Japanese meme that came from a glitch in the nintendo64 game Goldeneye, where the characters (and vehicles) would suddenly “spaz out” if the game cartridge was only partially inserted in the console. This lead to many hilarious situations like this >>

Soon after the original video of "geddan" went viral, there became many other awesome imitations

And finally my personal favorite

Hope you guys enjoyed and learned something and I'll see you in a few days!
Thanks and much love <3

Pens are some pretty crazy shit! #17





So right now im sooooooooooo tiered, last night a friend of mine decided it would be awesome to keep me up while nonsensically ranting about how his life could have been so much more... Till 6am...
But enough about me not sleeping! Today's video's are of Pen spinning!

This stuff is crazy super awesome and i really just cant get enough of it... But that could just be the inner Asian in me trying to escape...


"Pen spinning is a form of object manipulation that involves the deft manipulation of a writing instrument with one's hands. Although it is often considered a form of self-entertainment (usually in a school/office setting), multinational competitions and meetings are sometimes held. It is a form of contact juggling. It can also be classified as a sport. Pen spinning is known as "pen mawashi" (compare for example Mawashi geri, "round-kick") or, more disparagingly, "r┼Źnin mawashi" "college student spinning" in Japan where the pastime has been popular since at least the 1970s, and where the Pen Spinning Association Japan is now dedicated to promoting the aspiring art form. While its origins remain unclear, pen-twirling is quickly gaining international popularity through on-line video sharing and forums. According to Masaki Tsukada, chairman of the Japanese pen spinners, pen spinning now has dedicated movements in South Korea and the United States. "
