I’ve disappeared for quite some time now.  Too many reasons for the disappearance and I’m not going to bore you by discussing them.  In fact, I’m going to get straight to the point of my latest post.

I saw this commercial on television a few days back.  To begin with, I had thought it was a music video.  It is just too good not to share.

I don’t know what the creator’s were eating, drinking, smoking, or injecting when they conceptualized this commercial.  Original idea, fantastic animation, and very entertaining.  The soundtrack is also worth searching for and downloading.

Enough with all the blabber.  Just check the video out for yourselves.

*Update* I enjoyed the track in the video so much, that after some web digging, it turns out that the track is titled “Let’s Roll” from a Kuwaiti hip-hop band called Army Of One who just released their debut album entitled ‘Hush’. 

I managed to download a few tracks off the album and was very impressed.  The tracks are fast paced, high-energy, and Arabic infused with hip-hop flows and lyrics. 

The above commercial is currently airing on satellite TV channels across the Arab world.  For more information on the band, their music, videos, and events, visit www.army-one.com.

What do you get when an old, black & white clip of the 1920’s popular dance craze ‘ The Charleston’, is played to the fabulous tune of Daft Punk’s ‘Around The World’?

You get one funky remix!  Quite a creative concept. 

World’s Most Expensive Home February 7, 2007

Built on 160 acres, this 53,000 square-foot stone and wood mansion carries a price tag of $155 million; making it the world’s most expensive home. 

Timber and real estate baron, Tim Blixseth, ranks No. 322 in the 2006 Forbes 400 list with a $1.2 billion fortune.  Developer and owner of the mansion which is located in the Yellowstone Club (a members-only, Blixseth-developed residential ski and golf resort near Bozeman, Montana), Blixseth believes it won’t be hard to find a buyer at that price.  In fact, he claims he’s already received interest in the home.

That tops the $139 million asking price for Updown Court in Windlesham, England, which was listed No. 1 in the Forbes.com list of the world’s most expensive homes in 2006.  And it also exceeds the $125 million that U.S. media mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump is asking for the renovated estate he owns in Palm Beach, Florida.

The $155 million fully furnished home comes with:

  • 10 bedrooms
  • a private gondola-like chairlift that will carry residents to the Yellowstone Club’s private ski slopes
  • an indoor/outdoor swimming pool
  • a home movie theater

Forget about who has the biggest yacht.  The emerging battleground for bragging rights these days is who will lay claim to the world’s most expensive home.

Anyone in the market for a new house? 😉

English actress Catherine Tate in a hilarious, non politically-correct sketch from her BBC series – ‘The Catherine Tate Show’.

The sketch takes a stereotypical view on different languages, with a comedic spin.  Lot’s of fun…Enjoy!

This is truly a fantastic video!  Definitely worth watching. 

I was very happy and proud to see Jordan included.  I’ve already made a list of all the places I want to vist.

Sit back, relax, turn your speakers up, and take a 4-minute trip around the world. 

*Warning* This video contains freakishly weird dancing.  Not for the light hearted 😉

A “Wicked” Prank! January 29, 2007

The word “wicked” in the title above has a double meaning.  In today’s slang terminology, wicked could mean:  cool, excellent, very good; or as the Oxford Dictionary describes the word, wicked could mean:  evil, bad, immoral.  The prank I’m about to describe walks a thin line between both meanings – at least in my opinion.

A prankster at heart, I seldom let an opportunity pass where I can play a practical joke on a friend or colleague.  I do it all…from spontaneous pranks, to fully thought out and pre-planned pranks.  TV shows that are guaranteed to have me on the floor laughing include Punk’d, Scare Tactics, Jackass, and the various Candid Camera shows.

Understanding Your Body Fat Percentage January 21, 2007

I’ve been regularly attending a private gym since September 2006.  I have a personal trainer who structured a challenging work-out program for me with the aim of losing body fat, toning my body, and improving my fitness. 

Last week, after completing just over 3 months of strenuous training, it came time for a fitness exam.  They tested my VO2 Max (which is the volume of oxygen you can consume while exercising at your maximum capacity), my body fat percentage, and my flexibility.  The results of my fitness exam were very satisfying; but what stood out most was my body fat percentage of 18%.  Now, I’m a pretty thin guy, and I’ve been working out religiously for the last 3-4 months.  I never expected to have so much fat in my body! Well, considering the many food articles I’ve posted on ‘The Theme’, its pretty obvious I’m not a very healthy eater…

Anyhow, I found my body fat percentage to be quite shocking, so I did a little research and decided to share the results with you.
