  • Greatest Eddie Vedder 'Yellow Ledbetter' Impression Ever

    Posted by Span

    He's from Santiago, Chile, but he's clearly a massive fan of Eddie Vedder and 'Pearl Jam.' And on this Spanish show 'Mi Nombre Es' (My Name Is) he performed a near perfect impersonation of Eddie on his most difficult song ever.

    And just like Eddie, you can't make out a single word he sang. Well done bro.

     

  • David Beckham Goes Undercover At Target

    David Beckham got paid 25 million dollars to play soccer in the US. So why not have him go undercover as a Target Employee selling his own brand of cologne? That's what Ellen did. The results are interesting indeed.

    We all know the US Debt is extraordinary. How did it get that bad? Well, the people we hired to do the job ain't doin' the job. That's the simple answer.

    The bigger answer is too long and complicated and makes me wanna punch a wall. But it wasn't until someone put together this visual representation of the US National Debt that I began to realize just how screwed we are.

  • The Ultimate Sacrifice

    Devastation and Japan are pretty much synonimous lately. First they got hit with one of the largest earthquakes in their history. Then they got hit with some of the biggest waves to ever rise up on land.

    Sadness and despair filled the air as the populace wondered what else could possibly happen. Then they found out that the Fukushima Daiichi plant, one of their more troubled nuclear energy facilities, was hopelessly crippled and a threat to release dangerous levels of radiation into the air.

    Months later as they try to clean up the damage an unlikely, but sensible, group of volunteers has stepped up to help. Japanese elderly.

    On paper it makes sense. At 70 years of age or older it would take years for the cancers to develop in their bodies due to the extreme levels of radiation exposure they will experience. Years where they could die of any number of elderly-linked conditions including, but not limited to, natural causes.

    Who wants to see their favorite grampa die though? Who wants to imagine their grandmother sweating away in a biohazard they would only send machines into previously? That's the reality the Japanese are facing.

    The whole thing chokes me up pretty hard. Not because of the sadness it brings, but for the hope it demonstrates. A portion of the population is willing to sacrifice themselves in hopes that those younger than them might live a better life. I don't wanna think of the agony this will bring to their families, but I thank them mightily for their sacrifice.

  • He Says She Says She LOST The $76,000 Engagement Ring

    Dallas Cowboys Wide Receiver Roy Williams asked his then girlfriend, Brooke Daniels (2009 Miss Texas USA), to marry him. To do so he sent her a $76,000 diamond ring and a taped proposal. And he sent these things through the mail.

    He sent a $76,000 engagement ring through the mail. That's pretty dang stupid. But he says that she told him that she lost the ring in response to his attempt to get it back when she denied his proposal. If that's true, then that's a whole other level of dummy and they really, truly deserve each other.

  • Florence + The Baby

    Last night at Spartan Stadium Florence + The Machine held their own opening for one of the biggest rock bands in the world, U2. I got turned on to Florence thanks to their first hit, "Dog Days Are Over," a good while ago. So it was fun for me to watch the dawning of new fandom on the faces of folks sitting around me at the show last night.

    Young Embry here is too young to speak, but he knows what he likes. And he didn't have to be at the show to demonstrate his enthusiasm. In fact, he demonstrated his enthusiasm so energetically I think he put that car seat to the test. Watch him break it down:

    You need to see this video because it's artistically valid. It represents one woman's struggle to seek out her destiny amongst the cosmos and her need for the love and support of those close to her.

    It's a stunning portrayal of achievement and sacrifice. Of faith in oneself and belief in one's abilities.

    It's a reminder to let the dreamer in each one of us be free to dream and dream again.

  • And I Just Thought I Was A Jerk

    Posted by Span

    I have a pretty fun personality, but the truth is I prefer being alone. For long stretches. And it's exhausting to be around people for too long.

    I used to think I was just a jerk (and I was TOTALLY fine being one). It turned out I was just an introvert. And I knew that long before I read this article a buddy of mine sent me. are you an introvert? Find out:
