Man Vs. Wild 2

UPDATE: Bear was on the Conan O’Brien show the other night talking about the new season of Man vs. Wild.

I really hope that they are planning more seasons of Man vs. Wild. The first season only has about 7 episodes or so. A lot of people criticize the show because of his camera crew. I think it makes the show more interesting and certainly easier to watch. Plus, like I mentioned before – they aren’t really allowed to help him unless he is in mortal danger.

I guess that the thing I appreciate about the show the most is that it is a huge proponent of being prepared. As an Eagle Scout, I think that this is one of the most helpful concepts in life. Obviously – we cannot foresee all the problems we may run into in life, but at least we can study up a bit and be prepared in some way. The best part of being ready yourself is that then you will be ready to help someone else when they are in need. I think this is what MvW is all about fundamentally.

Season 2 starts June 15, 2007 (Here is Episode One)

Here are a few more clips from season 1 for your enjoyment.

The Global War on Yard-work…

In case you missed the Ric Keller money quote:

Let me give you an analogy. Imagine that you have a next door neighbor who refuses to mow his lawn, and the weeds are up to his waist. You mow his lawn for him every single week. The neighbor never says thank you, he hates you, and sometimes he takes out a gun and shoots at you.

Under these circumstances, would you keep mowing his lawn forever? Would you send even more of your family members over to mow his lawn? Or, would you say to him, you better start mowing your own lawn or there’s going to be serious consequences for you?

Read the whole Schpeel (sp?).

So, over at the Victory Caucus they were having a little Photoshop contest over what I am now going to refer to as The Global War on Yard-work. I just couldn’t resist:

aka. The Hogwash Story.


Sorry – had to whip this one together quick. Lunch break…

Coming Soon: Lawnmower Man!

Some people ask: How do you cope during these depressing times? Photoshop – that’s how a cope. Gotta keep laughing a little. I hope these brighten somebody’s day!

AHAHAHAHA! Happy Valentines Day!!!

Time to eat tuti fruities and blow on sunflowers while frolicking around with baby ponies through tulips and rainbows surrounded by faeries and butterflies and perhaps wear little shawls with tiny tiny buttons on them.

Society For Ethnomusicology Against Music as Torture

I didn’t know it at the time, but I was tortured by the University of Oregon (according to the Society For Ethnomusicology)

I was forced to listen to John Cage’s 4:33 during a digital video class. There is no more brutal, ruthless, nay – heinous form of torture in existence.

Here is a little interview with Professor Philip Bohlman of the University of Chicago: the president of the Society of Ethnomusicologists. Good to know that the Society did it’s homework before making it’s statement…
