DC Tea Party

This was the scene just this past weekend outside the White House in D.C. This video speaks for itself.

Life as the Internet

Another amazing TED talk. This poem is so....colorful. Vibrant and energetic. It left a smile on my face, which makes it worth sharing.

Lovin this track

If you haven't seen the video to this track, I think it'll be a little surprising. Well, it surprised me at least. It's a complete mockery... hilarious.

... my picks! After a meticulous analysis, these are my picks for the 2009 NFL season, just in time for kickoff tonight. I went through week by week, game by game, choosing winners and losers. These are my results.

Personally, I don't believe the Ravens are as good a their record indicates, however they have a very favorable schedule. Minnesota will make a push this year, with the tandem of Favre and Adrian Peterson. And look out for WR Bernard Berrian - fantasy alert!

With Brady back, I can't look past the Pats, and the one-two punch of Vick and McNabb will work. Actually, I think it's the running combination of Vick and Westbrook that should get teams more concerned.

New Orleans' recent acqusition of Roman Harper, as well as a healthy Jonathon Vilma, should at least give the Saints an average defence. With the offensive potency of Brees and Bush, this should be enough to give them the NFC South, where their division record will give them the tie break.

Cutler won't exceed too many expectations with the Bears, however he won't dissapoint either. Their defence should still be one of the top units in the NFC, however Cutler and the Bears still won't have enough to make a wild card.

And for Cutler's old team, well, they'll be in for a long season. I'm curious to see how long Coach McDaniels is around for...

Anyway, enjoy.

Interesting coincidence...

Birds on the Wires from Jarbas Agnelli on Vimeo.

Surprisingly a pleasant tune to say the least...
"Reading a newspaper, I saw a picture of birds on the electric wires. I cut out the photo and decided to make a song, using the exact location of the birds as notes (no Photoshop edit). I knew it wasn't the most original idea in the universe. I was just curious to hear what melody the birds were creating.

I sent the music to the photographer, Paulo Pinto, who I Googled on the internet. He told his editor, who told a reporter and the story ended up as an interview in the very same newspaper.

Here I've posted a short video made with the photo, the music and the score (composed by the birds)."

My obsession

Behold, 1 minute and 7 seconds of pure bliss.

So I'm kinda obsessed with golf, and that's most likely due to my man-crush on Tiger Woods. Watching the Golf playoffs over the past few weeks has been euphoric - Tiger playing 4 weeks in a row doesn't happen often! The way he's changed the sport from both a physical, and an emotional sense is what has drawn me to his game. It's so entertaining to see Tiger pumping his fist after a sick shot, then throwing a club and dropping a few F bombs, all in the same round. Honestly, I feel that watching Tiger Woods play golf is like witnessing the evolution of man. His level of excellence is simply astounding, and I'm amazed at how he continues to astonish me again, and again each week.

Anyway, back to the clip... this is 2 years old now, and it showcases, literally, the perfect swing. The torque he creates from his flexibility is incredible.
