Another Benny Hill Theme classic. Mr. Bojangles style.


That'll do pig. That'll do.

How Great Thou Art



I'm not a country music fan at all, but this Carrie Underwood with Vince Gill - How Great thou Art video is pretty damn slick. One of my grandma's favorite songs was "How Great Thou Art" and I'm sure she would have liked this version of it. I am also fairly certain that she would have been disgusted by the multiple shots of an obese Wynonna Judd nodding in approval of the awesomeness of Carrie Underwood's pipes.


In case you ever wondered what was great about thou art, or even what the hell thou art is, here is an explanation:

"How Great Thou Art" is a Christian hymn based on a Swedish poem written by Carl Gustav Boberg (1859–1940) in Sweden in 1885. The melody is a Swedish folk song. It was translated into English by British missionary Stuart K. Hine, who also added two original verses of his own composition. It was popularized by George Beverly Shea and Cliff Barrows during the Billy Graham crusades.[1] It was voted the United Kingdom's favourite hymn by BBC's Songs of Praise.[2] "How Great Thou Art" was ranked second (after "Amazing Grace") on a list of the favorite hymns of all time in a survey by Today's Christian magazine in 2001.

The inspiration for the poem came when Boberg was walking home from church near Kronobäck, Sweden, and listening to church bells. A sudden awe-inspiring storm gripped Boberg’s attention, and then just as suddenly as it had made its violent entrance, it subsided to a peaceful calm which Boberg observed over Mönsterås Bay.[6] According to J. Irving Erickson:
Carl Boberg and some friends were returning home to Mönsterås from Kronobäck, where they had participated in an afternoon service. Nature was at its peak that radiant afternoon. Presently a thundercloud appeared on the horizon, and soon sharp lightning flashed across the sky. Strong winds swept over the meadows and billowing fields of grain. The thunder pealed in loud claps. Then rain came in cool fresh showers. In a little while the storm was over, and a rainbow appeared.

When Boberg arrived home, he opened the window and saw the bay of Mönsterås like a mirror before him… From the woods on the other side of the bay, he heard the song of a thrush…the church bells were tolling in the quiet evening. It was this series of sights, sounds, and experiences that inspired the writing of the song.[7]
According to Boberg's great-nephew, Bud Boberg, "My dad's story of its origin was that it was a paraphrase of Psalm 8 and was used in the 'underground church' in Sweden in the late 1800s when the Baptists and Mission Friends were persecuted."[8] The author, Carl Boberg himself gave the following information about the inspiration behind his poem:
"It was that time of year when everything seemed to be in its richest colouring; the birds were singing in trees and everywhere. It was very warm; a thunderstorm appeared on the horizon and soon thunder and lightning. We had to hurry to shelter. But the storm was soon over and the clear sky appeared.

"When I came home I opened my window toward the sea. There evidently had been a funeral and the bells were playing the tune of 'When eternity's clock calling my saved soul to its Sabbath rest.' That evening, I wrote the song, 'O Store Gud.'" (source).

Cow's iPad Jams - Enter COWman


Alright. Here is my latest iPad jam. You can watch it in HD. I know the quality is shit, but I have my reasons. It sounds better when I play it with two hands but I didn't feel like rigging something up to hold the camera. Turn your speakers up to 11 for the ultimate viewing experience ever. Enjoy?

iPad 2 Face Melting


[Soundtrack: Korn feat. Skrillex - "Get Up"]


I'm sure there will be many questions about my new iPad 2. After getting the InvisaShield installed, I put it to the test. Below is a summary of what it was like.



I waited a long time for the iPad 2. The process was similar to this:


And then I opened the iPad box and synced my iPad and the aftermath went like this:

Zombie Safehouse: Harney Peak -VS- Fukuoka Prefecture

Any conversation I have with anyone at some point leads to the topic of zombies. Such was the case the other night when I laid down the latest zombie news with the H-IT-Man. We strategized different doomsday scenarios and went over what exactly we would do during those crucial first few hours of a zombie outbreak. The details of our conversation are confidential, but one of the not-so-secretive things we discussed was the debate over what refuge was the safest. Recently, Murphy submitted the Fukuoka Prefecture coal mine in Japan as an additional anti-zombie destination point. In the event of a zombie outbreak, there are now two places to consider; Harney Peak and Fukuoka Prefecture. Both have pros and cons.
Harney Peak



PROS:
· Located in South Dakota, Harney Peak is the highest point in the state
· It is essentially a rock fortress built on top of a mountain.
· The scenery on top of Harney Peak is beautiful
· It is secluded and zombies have a hard time hiking up mountains
· Pizza Parties

CONS:
· It is on top of a mountain. Helicopter is the best bet
Now let’s take a look at...
Fukuoka Prefecture


PROS:
· The name. Fukuoka. If you take a closer look, it says “FUK-U-OK-A?” Done and done
· Look at the place. It’s a god damn zombie sniper’s dream
· It is elevated and appears to be the perfect anti-zombie haven
CONS:
· It is in Japan
· This picture:
· High population of people on an island = high population of zombies on an island
After reviewing the pros and cons of both areas, I’m still gonna go with Harney Peak. But it is always good to have a Plan B in mind just in case Plan A does not work out.

How to: Cheesy Potatoes

How to: Cheesy Potatoes



[Soundtrack: George Frideric Handel – “Messiah, Hallelujah Chorus”]

High school + Senior year + Football + Thursday night = Cheesy Potatoes.

If you know me, you know I like food. Cheesy potatoes are one of my favorites. I didn’t always like potatoes. When I was little, I had a Match Box car that was a big ass shark on wheels. One day, I shoved the shark car through a potato, and afterwards it smelled like asshole. I never really liked potatoes after that. But I warmed up to them when I had me some Cheesy Potatoes. Every Thursday night during my senior year of high school, the seniors on the football team gathered together at someone’s house and we shared a delicious meal that all of our parents put together. Every Thursday one of the moms would show up with a pan of Cheesy Potatoes. Mrs. Sanderman was her name. Cheesy Potatoes was her game. Her Cheesy Potatoes were/are the purest substance known to mankind. I asked Mrs. Sanderman for the recipe one time and she actually ripped it out of her cookbook and gave it to me. The ingredients turned up missing until recently. My mom found the recipe the other day and subsequently concluded a personally conquest I had been on for almost a decade. And now I would like to take this opportunity to share it with the world. Enjoy.
