Mental Health Break

by Vince

Buzzfeed captions this video made entirely out of food:

More specifically, cookies, chocolate and all other types of baked goods (yum). This music video, created by Mexican singing duo Jesse & Joy and set to their song “Chocolate”, is extra sweet and well worth the 30 days it took them to film it.

National Sport of the Day

by Vince

The photo caption says it all:

Horsemen take part in a Kok-boru, or goat dragging, competition as they attend a festival of Kyrgyz folklore and popular traditions near the Son-Kul lake, on July 21, 2011. Considered Kyrgyzstan’s national sport, Kok-boru is a traditional Central Asian game where players grab a goat carcass from the ground while riding their horses and try to score by placing it in their opponent’s goal.(Reuters/Vladimir Pirogov)

More awesome, interesting, beautiful, and desktop wallpaper photos here.

Summer, Heat, and Lethargy

by Vince

I haven’t felt the desire to blog in a few weeks. Why? Politics as usual has bored me (especially with the debt ceiling debate). The heat has zapped some of my energy, good books have abounded, and music has been all around me.

Only a few times this week have I checked my blogroll. Here is a nice summer video you can sit back and enjoy:

Chicago By Boat

by Vince

Complete with fireworks. By Philip Boom:

To be more precise, that boat ride began in Burnham Harbor on Lake Michigan, went through the locks at the mouth of the Chicago River, went west on the Main Branch of the River, then south on the South Branch (artificially straightened in the ‘20s, but still the River proper) to about 12th Street, then turned around and went back the way it came. The fireworks were the 3rd of July show on Navy Pier. (Why Chicago has fireworks on the 3rd of July is a long story…)
