Severed Limbs, Missing Flesh, and Dead Seals… Oh Yea! It’s Shark Week Baby!

The 2012 London Olympics has been a fun ride. I really enjoyed the fresh opening ceremony with Mary Poppins battling Lord Valdemort. I watched in awe as Gabby Douglas won her gold medal in gymnastics. It was awesome witnessing history when Michael Phelps broke the all-time record for Olympic medals. I caught the super cocky Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt reaffirm his status as the fastest man in the world.  I followed every detail of the Chinese Badminton scandal and I got a good laugh when that Judo fighter got kicked out for eating pot brownies – which he  claimed to have ingested unknowingly. Right.

In short the #Lympics were awesome.  Merica’ dominated and stole the show (as usual). We took home da golds and let the rest of the world know we failed P.E. cause Merica’ don’t play.

Now let us get onto more important things……such as the start of Shark Week on the Discovery Channel.

Shark Week is a special time of the year. It’s an opportunity for the different nations to put aside their differences and unify around their shared love of shark-based TV programming. Conflicts and grudges are forgotten and we reconnect with what unites us as humanity – namely the fact that we are all horrified yet fascinated by sharks.

In light of the Summer Olympics and the 25th anniversary of Shark week coming up I think it is important to shed some awareness on the people who overly vamp the world up for these events.  Below you can see the differences and quite possibly even some similarities:

Olympic Fans: Have been preparing and promoting the Summer Olympics since the last Winter Olympics.  Most likely have had Facebook invites to their homes for their friends and families to enjoy veggies together while they watch the curling session.

Shark Week Fans: Besides the people that obviously are working for the marketing team. Shark week fans have no idea when it’s going to start until at least a day and half into the week. And then they act as if they have been waiting for this week ever since…. Wait how long ago was the last shark week? Do we have one every year?

Olympic Fans: Will set their alarms and wake up at 3am just so they can watch the diving match.

Shark Week Fans:  Will watch sharks diving their teeth into people’s throats all the way up until the bar closes and then… Go to bed.  I mean I can TiVo it or rent it when it comes to DVD.

Olympic Fans: Are intellectual human beings.  They actually care about culture and geography.

Shark Week Fans: Not so much into brains as they are into their beer.  But hey, we can at least name off 3 different oceans the sharks have attacked in.

Olympic Fans: Most likely athletes or were athletes at some point or have now just figured out that working out can make you look like you are an athlete thus meaning if you watch the Olympics you will look even more like an athlete.

Shark Week Fans: Hipsters or want to be hipsters.  People who just want to seem like they’re in the ‘know’ with what’s cool these days.  Couples or friends that think it’s cool to dress as a shark and victim for Halloween.

Olympic Fans: Care about team work, playing fair, and dominating China every opportunity they get.

Shark Week Fans: Don’t currr as long as a shark sinks its teeth into some fresh meat.

Ok, so maybe the simularities were a long shot.  What we can conclude with is that the Olympics fans are good wholesome people who care about the world USA dominating the world, and Shark week viewers just want to see more people die in the ocean…

All good things must come to an end

Today I flipped on the internet and found out some not so fresh news. Apple’s new OS, Mountain Lion, won’t be supported on the ol trusty black Macbook of mine.

Here’s the list of unsupported Macs for Mountain Lion:

Any Intel Core 2 Duo MacBook from late 2007 – late 2008 (Model Numbers: MB061*/B, MB062*/B, MB063*/B, MB402*/A MB403*/A MB404*/A, MB402*/B)
• The Mid-2007 Mac mini (Model Numbers: MB138*/A, MB139*/A)
• Late 2006 polycarbonate iMac (Model Number: MA710xx/A)
• The original early 2008 MacBook Air (Model Number: MB003LL/A)

If you want to check your Mac and see if it’ll place nice with Mountain Lion click on the Apple at the top left and select “About This Mac”. On the screen that comes up, click “More Info”, then look under the hardware section.

It’s been a good ride I’ve had her since 2008 lasting me through college and then some but I hate to see her go. On the bright side it looks like I now have an excuse to get a new Mac

Ahhhh, the things girls say

I ran across this awesome video today, it pretty much sums up my FF (fresh fiancé). So my fiancé might look a little lot less masculine but this could totally be her.

For those of you not intimately involved in my life I am engaged to pretty much the girliest girl alive (check out her blog). I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard these exact words come out of her mouth.

My favorite one I get daily from FF is, “What’s wrong with my computer?”  Me, “I don’t know, honey; maybe it’s the 600 Pinterest pins you’ve clicked today or the 38 tabs you have open in Google Chrome.”

Anyone who has a girlfriend/wifey can definitely relate to this:

I moustache you a question. How old are you?

There comes a time of year when a certain date creeps up and you realize you’re getting older fresher. This year was no different except my brother-in-law, Jeff, was turning 30 (The big 3-0!). My sister decided to throw a party aka “the stache bash” themed on a nice pic of when Jeff shaved his beard and left a fresh cookie duster for a good laugh.

Jeff with a stache, some call it "The Jeffrey"

Check out some of the pics from “the stache bash” last night. You’re sure to get a good laugh.

I can’t take credit for this brilliant idea as it was my sisters. Check out her blog: Disorganized Inspirations

As someone once said about getting older:

I still have a full deck; I just shuffle slower now”

Until next post, Stay Fresh My Friends

How do I be Fresh? Step 1: Talk Fresh

Here at “Stay Fresh My Friends” you’ll be encountering a variety of foreign terms and vocabulary that have been a) created entirely by me and my friends or b) cribbed from obscure and underappreciated movies. There’s also a healthy dose of fresh jargon thrown around for good measure. Perhaps take a moment to acquaint yourself before delving deeper into the Freshness rabbithole.

fresh – meaning cool, hot, nice or exquisite. Pretty much something awesome. It’s a really good thing.

coo – a shortened more fresher version of the word “cool”. Used when it takes too much effort to pronounce the “l”.

i remember when – an effective insult. also said when one is acting very immature to the point of extreme annoyance, as in how a young person may act when they have their first alcoholic beverage. Taken from from a great comedy “Step Brothers”.

bra – one of your best, freshest friends.

off the chain – da bomb, really good, delightful.

FTD (fresh to death) – a term used to describe something that is so good it is inexplainable.

gucci – a word that means good, great, fine, awesome and ect. Gucci is the ubiquitous word. Acceptable to use on any occasion.

drank – any type of drink, whether its clear drank, purple grape drank, red drank, strawburry drank, etc.

beer thirty – time of day (usually late afternoon to early evening) at which drinking a beer becomes necessary.

hurr – where you at. as in, “i’m over hurr mane”; also, your do. as in, “check on my new hurr do. Dees dreads is sho fly”

mane – if you don’t know what a mane is, you aren’t one and aren’t fresh enough to know

cray cray – so unbelievably close to sheer insanity that one word cannot express the sentiment alone.

go hard – doing something with 100% effort, but requires some unteachable skill. Something a beast of a man does all day everyday.

fire – used to describe something that is the bomb or tight. I personally use it for food that is really delicious.

dope – fly, cool, sweet, the bombdiggity. not to be confused with the illegal substance. S/O to my friend @christiandan5 for this tight definition yo!

jamz – a tune you’re crushing really hard on

As you can see, I do use alot of words that aren’t of the norm. But hey, most of the stuff that comes out of people’s pieholes sounds just as ridiculous, so just go with it, right?

Jack Black Fresh Moisturizer

So I’ve been looking for a good face moisturizer for some time now. All the ones I would get would either turn my face red or leave it greasy. Then I stumbled upon Jack Black.

NO, NO, not this Jack Black but Jack Black Moisturizer from getjackblack.com (not related to this Jack Black –>)

I’m not big on face moisturizers but it does get cold and my face gets dry down here in the dirty dirty south. If you’re looking for some moisturizer to keep your face fresh get some Jack Black.

I’ve been using it for almost a week now and I have no complaints. It goes on easy and absorbs quickly. Simply put it’s the best, most freshest thing that has ever touched my face.

Pros:

– fresh
– not thick and absorbs quickly
– doesn’t turn face white
– doesn’t leave face greasy
– has 20 SPF
– all natural

Cons:

– small bottle
– $27 (a little pricey for the amount you get)
 

So if you’re looking for a men’s moisturizer this is the one. It leaves no greasy feel, no shine, just all around freshness.

Here’s a link to the Jack Black site and they even throw in 3 free samples with every order:
