Bad Lip Reading

March 31, 2011 2 comments

I guess I have not been doing the best job of posting on the blog. <WEAK-EXCUSE> Both work and life have been crazy busy <\WEAK-EXCUSE>. But that hasn’t stopped me from skowering the internet for those really special must see things. Well here is a quick one for you.

May I present Bad Lip Reading.  Who ever they are, takes a music video, picks out new verses for the lip movements, records the new song and syncs it back up with the video.  I used to refer to myself as a professional mis-interpreter so I really enjoyed these videos.  I think you will too.  Hopefully they keep pumping them out.

Black Eyed Peas’ Boom Boom Pow becomes Everybody Poops.

 

 

And in a incredible upgrade, internet sensation song Friday by Rebecca Black becomes Gang Fight.

Our Internet Hero?

March 4, 2011 3 comments

I think we talked about Urban Ninja in the past.  I guess I overlooked this video as an amazing one off until I came across this …

Obviously I find this video awesome on several levels.  But it is the trailer for Urban Ninja III at the end is really was peaked my interest.  Not only was this great news but it also pointed out that I had missed Urban Ninja II.  Immediately some internet searching began.  Quickly I was lead to the YouTube channel of the creator Robert Hoffman (aka PunchRobert).  Quickly looking through his collection of videos he appears to be extremely well rounded.  Breakdancer, Ninja, Comedian, Singer, Prankster and Rapper.  Sounds like the perfect entertainer to me.

So we would officially like to put the support of PiratesAndNinja.com behind PunchRobert.  Check out his website and youtube page, you won’t be disappointed.  Here are a couple of samples to make it easy for you.

While You Are Waiting

February 18, 2011 Leave a comment

As I sort through hundreds of pieces of fan mail I can tell that most of you are pretty disappointed with the volume of post lately.  I can’t blame you, life has been busy (we have bought and sold houses in the last month) and I have been a little uninspired.

But I am going to try to bring back my A game.  I am quickly collecting topics to rant about.  Heidi has found a way to get me out of the house I have lived in for 28 years.  I have a son who is about to turn 5 years old and happens to be a top notch comedian, or at least a comedy goldmine.  I should have a plethora of topics to blather on about.

While you are waiting on me why don’t you have a look at the 2 new entries to my blog roll.  Both of these people have just recently started their current blogs but at the rate they are both producing content they will surpass me in both volume and quality, within a month.

Eleisa Wife Life – Eleisa is wife to Franklin whom I worked with for many years at Citi.  Even though I have only met her a couple of times and currently talk with Frankie occasionally on XBOX Live, the magic of Facebook and the posts on the blog keep me up to date with the whole family.  Topics mainly revolve around cooking, being mother to 2 kids and wife to a husband on hemodialysis.  But it is the posts about Frankie’s kidney failure that are the most moving, especially to anyone in a serious relationship.

J Gary Wise – Gary is a good friend who is an established Poker writer with ESPN but has just started this personal blog to expand his writing repertoire (<– from my word of the day calendar).  Just over a week old he has already  touched on a myriad of topics (Poker, MMA, Baseball, Movies, Television, Marriage and Mortgages) but no topic would surprise me.  Gary is an excellent and passionate writer and well worth the read, even if the topics don’t directly interest you.

I will never write as well as Gary or be as moving as Eleisa but the dedication to their writing makes me want to write again.  So spend some time reading their posts and then come back, I am sure I will have a new story of something terrible I saw in the men’s room shortly.

Choose Your Own Blog Post

Some people might tell you simply linking to other peoples YouTube videos makes a pretty weak blog.  Well the guys at Dorksplosion are putting in way more effort into their craft then I am feeling up to today.  But this is definitely something everyone needs to see, cause it is AWESOME (unless you don’t like swear words … in that case this is not for you).

Happy Monday Y’all!

Epic Meals And Potential Fails

December 1, 2010 Leave a comment

Things are looking pretty bleak on the whole ‘bet with Gary’ front.  I am not really ‘into numbers’ right now but I have a bunch to lose for Friday.  My lovely bride has stepped up to the plate and has put me on a super special program which she guarantees results.  She has my 100% buy in.

Totally unrelated to my weight problems … These EPIC MEAL TIME guys really are doing something special.  New videos every Tuesday.  Here is their US Thanksgiving video.

A bird in a bird in a bird in a bird in a pig.  That is enough to make me turn vegitarian.  J/K this is awesome.  “The We Garnished It With Baconators” … Brilliant!

Here is today’s video on breakfast.  Everything wrapped in bacon …

“We ‘Bout To Get Drunk Off Pancakes” … Genius.

We at PiratesAndNinja.com would like to full endorse the science being performed by the guys at Epic Meal Time.

Nice Jugs

January 10, 2010 Leave a comment

We are a cross border household.  I am Canadian, Heidi is American, Travis is both.   We always run into little differences.  Most of the time we can laugh at each other for things like the way we say things … Roof vs Ruff, Measure vs Maesure and Prowject vs Prawject.  Probably the point of contention that has brought the most anger out of Heidi is ‘Bags Of Milk’.

It is one of those things to me that is ‘just the way it has always been’.  Her point is why would you put liquid in a plyable container that doesn’t close once open … especially a diary product.  It is one of her strongest arguments and I don’t have a decent rebut and she is probably right.  Unfortunately she is intolerable when she feels she ‘is right’ so I can’t ever let her know.

VS             

But there has been a new development this week.  One of her friends let her know she could get 1 gallon (wtf is a gallon???) jugs of milk at Mac’s Convince Store (formerly Mac’s Milk).  I mentioned this to her years ago but me having a good idea is comparable to her being right, so I guess for the sake of the universe it needed to be someone from the outside.   They are a little unruly to use because of their weight but at least there is a lid and the end doesn’t collapse while pouring. None the less, she couldn’t be happier with her new jugs and things are a little calmer around the house.

I did do a little research on this subject on the internet.  The phenomenom of bagged milk has gotten a bit of attention.  Here are a couple of sites on the topic.

  • The obligatory Wikipedia Page is found here.
  • Here is a Canadian site trying dedicated to the topic.
  • From this link it appears bags of milk is one of the ways to identify a Canadian.
