One of the most amazing petrosexual sound tracks out there! And especially a very effective ad, considering they closed the roads and actually drove the cars at each one of those locations. See if you can name them all…. One day, I will go to Monaco!

You’ve probably all heard of the Kony 2012 campaign. If not, all the links are listed below, it IS a worthy cause.
Ask yourself the question: How powerful could America be if they emulated KONY 2012 passion and demands about the conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan? What about Abortion, Equality, LGBT rights? What about Bank or Airline regulation? Sounds like we have enough issues right here in the US, no? Shouldn’t we fix our own country first before we impose our arrogant western thought on others?
Hasn’t the western (white) man already screwed Africa up enough through slavery and colonization 3 hundred of years ago?
Oh wait, what about South America and the rain forests (a global resource), or Asia as a whole and collection of so many countries who could use tons of aid? Oh, lest we forget, what about the Middle East, Europe, aren’t they all bankrupt anyway? Aren’t we bankrupt?
Against all of these possible issues, its easy to see how the Kony campaign pales in comparison with much larger global issues. No, I’m not urging you stay away from KONY 2012, I’m urging that once you’ve given to KONY2012, plastered the posters, worn your bracelets and on and on, to keep going after all of the other issues and not simply feel good for a while and forget… DO NOT forget that our world is very much broken!
Mr. Russel, the film maker of the last 12 KONY films over the past 14 years, is an absolute genius! His ability to highlight the issues, and hide certain opposing facts puts him right on par with Michael Moore. Very effective story telling indeed! True story telling? You’ll have to decide…
Oh yea, and if you want to keep this medium we’re all using to discuss these VERY IMPORTANT issues, throw these guys a few dollars… SOPA is dead, but it’s spirit is alive and kicking!
And then read these critiques:
And a rebuttal by Jason Russell, director of the viral video:
*This post is very much inconsistent with Dandooligan, but its VERY IMPORTANT, and for VERY IMPORTANT things, themes don’t matter.
Chocolate: a young chinese girl by the name of Zen takes control of her family’s dire situation and kicks some serious ass. Light years from the Johnny Depp love story by the same name, this film rocked my reality. I’m not sure if it comes in dubbed format, but subtitles have never really bothered me. If you’re a regular American who doesn’t like to read while witnessing a story, prepare to be frustrated, but still watch the movie for the martial arts and amazing stunts. This movie has no CG in it, just plain old skool Jackie Chan-esque badassery! Look for Thai action director Prachya Pinkaew to make sure you get the right film. It’s worth every minute of its 1.5 hr runtime. Go, go see it now!
You know, sometimes the Australians come up with some pretty cool stuff. Like this magazine for instance: http://www.fuelzine.com/ Somehow they’ve bottled the essence of petrol with ink on a page. Fashion, old tech, and eye candy all around. Can it get any better than this… Now to go hunting for any and all back-issues I can find. If anybody’s thinking of a present for me, look no further….
I WANT ONE OF THESE T-SHIRTS! Like NOW!!! Check out that stache! Women need to look like that again! Well, OK, aside all that, if you ride a bike, and you’re not a member of the AMA, your part of the problem.
They fight for our rights as riders every day in one of the most hateful places on this planet, Washington DC, an otherwise beautiful place marred by the excessive presence of evil, knifing, backstabbing, taxing, power hungry bastards that call themselves our government. Help fight the good fight be keeping trails and race tracks open, not to mention rider training improvement and education and send them $40 for a year supply of an excellently written rag, roadside, oh yea, and their desire to keep us on the road. Right, I think my soap box just popped a nail. I’m gonna go order my t-shirt now…
As per the usual, I don’t get any kickbacks from the AMA or anybody else for writing this, I simply believe in it with a militant extremist vigor!
