Hump Day Humor - Monty Python Meets Star Wars!

Star Wars: Episode III 1/2

After turning to the dark side of the Force, Darth Vader takes his very first "official" position on the forest moon of Endor. His position? Guardian of a tiny bridge...over a small stream...for unknown reasons. LOL.

The Black Knight (ahem)...I mean, Darth Vader...goes toe-to-toe with King Arthur and his trusty surf Patsy in this hilarious mashup of Star Wars and Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Watch this epic battle swords become light sabers, and men become women...testing the very bounds of reality as we know i...

Okay, okay. So no men actually become women here (thank goodness!). But swords DO become light sabers! And that, my friends, makes this video very fun to watch! :)

Speed Painting - Jack Sparrow and Optimus Prime

One of the things I really enjoy watching online is speed painting. Well, technically it's not really speed painting; its "time-lapse video" of painting (digital painting with Photoshop), but in the online world it's commonly confused with, and referred to as, speed painting. Nonetheless, it's darn cool to watch.

So here are two really cool speed painting videos I've enjoyed in the past. The first digital painting is of Captain Jack Sparrow and the second is of Optimus Prime (as if I really had to introduce either of them). :P Anyway, it's just plain amazing to watch these. Hope you enjoy 'em!

Note: Don't forget to check out Yuwie! Yuwie is definitely going very well. Bottom line, I couldn't be happier with it. :)

Hump Day Humor - Chuck Norris and Guitar Hero III

Well, it's Wednesday again. Bleh. So how about some hump day humor to brighten up your day? Yeah, sounds good to me! :)

So to start off, here's the latest Will It Blend? video. In this video Tom Dickson presents Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, the recently released guitar-based music video game.

But there's only one doesn't play any Beach Boys tunes. So he's decided to get his revenge...and blend it! And as Tom says, "This is what you get for not having The Beach Boys."

Oh yeah, and he also does a little guitar-smashing action as well - Pete Townsend style. Yeah, rock on! :)

Chuck Norris Web Searches

Since last week's Hump Day Humor - Chuck Norris Facts And More post, I've been getting a bit of extra blog traffic due to some "Chuck Norris" searches in Google, Yahoo! and a few of the other search engines. So far, the two main search terms that have been landing people here most consistently are:
  • Chuck Norris dot com
  • Chuck Norris pee in snow
LOL. So here are a few more entertaining Chuck Norris facts. And let's see what other Chuck Norris search terms will bring people here this week! :)

I Am Alive! Hip Hip Hooray!

Well, as most of you already know, I was pretty sick recently. From what? I dunno. All I do know is that I had all the signs of food poisoning...yet, I cannot figure out what I ate that made me sick...twice. And since the incubation period for foodborne illness can range anywhere from a couple of hours to several days, I'll probably never know.

Nonetheless, I'm feeling much, much better today. I still feel pretty weak from not being able to eat hardly anything for the last week or so, but that's par for the course.

I did manage make it out to the grocery store yesterday, even though I didn't feel like going anywhere at all. But since I'd chucked all of the open food in my refrigerator, there wasn't much left here to chew on, so to speak. So a trip to the grocery store was absolutely crucial.

Plus, I managed to down some yogurt and a nice turkey sandwich afterwards. So I felt worlds better. :)

A Great Big Thank You!

I'd like to sincerely thank all of you for your kind and caring comments and emails wishing me well. It's so wonderful to realize that people who know me only through the rapid pulses of light on a cathode ray tube or LCD screen can actually care so much. Bottom guys (and gals) rock!!!

A Few Important Updates

Since it's been about a week since I last posted, and since the natives have also been getting a tad bit restless, I figure it's a good time for a quick update on a few things here in Aaronland.

Yuwie: Yuwie is going very well. I couldn't be happier. The Yuwie earnings report for October came out just a few days ago, and I'm happy to report that I made $0.46 last month.

I know, I know...that little bit of change isn't a whole heck of a lotta money. But hey, it's certainly not bad considering the fact that I didn't do anything different on Yuwie from what I've been doing on MySpace and Facebook all this time! And how much have they paid me? Nothing! Zero, zilch, nada! The cheap bastards. :P

And the fact that my Yuwie earnings have more than doubled since last month is also pretty damn cool. Overall, my Yuwie earnings have increased by 130%...right on the nose.

With such rapid and continual growth, it doesn't take a brain surgeon to see why I'm so pleased with Yuwie. Bottom line, you WILL make money with Yuwie. And the amount you make will definitely increase each month if you work on referring people.

So my suggestion is to join Yuwie right now. For Pete's sake, if you communicate with anyone online, in any way at all, then you'll definitely make money with Yuwie every month. And quite possibly, a lot of!

Blog Traffic: Two words...Nose and dive. OK, so technically that was three words...but you catch my drift. Bottom line, not updating my blog for the last week has definitely affected my blog traffic. And by definitely, I mean definitely. And by blog traffic, I mean, "Hello...Is there anybody out there?" -Think Pink Floyd. ;)

So don't forget, sure to update your blog regularly! EVEN IF YOU'RE DEAD!!! LOL. Otherwise, your blog traffic will do the Ole, dreaded "nose and dive" routine. :P

My Blogging Friends: Since I haven't been online much at all during the last week, due to my being sick and all, there's really not a whole lotta new stuff going on here in Aaronland at the moment.

But instead of just ending this blog post right here and now, I'll share some of the recent updates from our fellow blogging friends. To note: this portion of the updates section will also take the place of this week's Super Link Sunday post, which obviously isn't gonna happen today since I'm still playing major catch up. And as we all know, blog posts don't write themselves! Unfortunately.

Ordinary Folk Things By Mike - Well I'll be cornhobbled and dipped in shellac! :P Things By Mike has finally wait for it, folks...Things By Mike! Yes! And with a slight redesign as well. So don't forget to update your bookmarks and blogrolls!

IslamCrunch 2.0 Launches - My good blogging friend Mikael Pittam has recently launched IslamCrunch version 2.0. IslamCrunch version 2.0 comes complete with a fully redesigned and customized template, as well as a brand new member to the team...Sidi Abdullah Alaydrus. So be sure to check 'em out!

Bush Mackel - A brand new blog design! Yep, Bush Mackel, the famed Link Love Loser Award winner (SLS batch #4) has a brand spanking new blog design up now! So whattaya think? Be sure to stop by Bush's blog and check it out! :)

Well, that about wraps it up for now. Thanks for reading, take care of yourself, and as always...Shine on.

Date Rape Drug Found In Kids Toys

Gee, you think it's time for toy companies to stop doing business with China?! I mean, how much more needs to happen before the toy companies smarten up, act responsibly, and stop doing business with these jokers? I think this definitely falls under the category we know as GMAFB.

Super Link Sunday - Batch #7

Super Link Sunday - Batch #7

Listen to the audio commentary!

Hello! And welcome to the seventh edition of Super Link Sunday!

Super Link Sunday is where I take the time to feature some of the more noteworthy bloggers and blog posts I came across during the week.

But for this week, I'm gonna do things a little bit differently. See, I've been a little (understatement!) pressed for time lately. In addition, I've also been dealing with a whole lot of stress due to some personal goings-on.

But beyond all that, there's another really good reason why I'm doing things a little bit we can all help out a fellow blogging friend!

Super Link Sunday All-stars All-star

No doubt, the blogosphere is an amazing place. It's a place where we can all share our personal thoughts and opinions with the freely as we want to. It's also a place where we can read the thoughts and opinions of others, choose whether or not to agree with them, and then comment about it! :)

And while there are many things that make a up good blogger, there's one virtue that I think is perhaps the most important of all. And that's the willingness...the desire...the drive to help a fellow blogger!

And that's why this week's Super Link Sunday All-star section is devoted solely to one blogger: Buch Mackel of the aptly named

Why? Well...first of all, Bush is a pretty cool guy (as far as I know :P). And secondly, he was Super Link Sunday - Batch #4's Link Love Loser Award winner! But thirdly, and most importantly of all, it's because he just launched a brand new website that he's trying to promote!

Enter, Noob Alert.

Gaming News That You Actually Care About

Noob Alert is a brand new website from our good friend Bush Mackel. It was founded in order to provide gaming news that matters. And it definitely does that!

Its goal? To create a sense of community that not even World of Warcraft can provide. Sounds good to me!

So let's all do our best to help Bush in his latest endeavor. Pass along the word in any way you can. And don't forget to give Noob Alert a Stumble and Digg! :)

Btw, Bush...I think you might really be able to capitalize on this if you start some sort of meme entitled, "You Might Be A Noob If..." and have people contribute their noobnessness to it! It's obviously a spin-off of Jeff Foxworthy's "You Might Be A Redneck" tagline, but trust me, that stuff works!

Leave A Comment Get Some Link Love

'Tis true! As part of Super Link Sunday, every single person who leaves a comment here on my blog gets some special link love in the upcoming week's SLS post. Btw, thanks to all of you for your wonderful comments!

Here are this week's awesome commentators:

*If you left a comment here this week and I didn't list you, please let me know!

Well, that about sums it up for this week's Super Link Sunday post. Do take care of yourself. And as always...Shine on!
