First off, if you haven't already, I would ask that you read this article I wrote yesterday. Its my first one on the new site, so its kind of big deal.

Secondly, I'd like to say that I'm not all about asking readers to do something that only benefits me. Sometimes, I like to share things that benefit everyone. So right below this paragraph, I will link a workout video for you to dance to. And when I say dance to, I don't mean for you to do your own dance while the video is playing, I mean you should do ALL the dances that you see, in the exact way the are performed. I guarantee you that your abs will tighten, you legs will be toned, and you will lose weight at an alarming weight. Here you go:

And finally I'd like to bring up a situation that I've discussed plenty of times before, and I am so sorry I have to bring it up again. Actually, I shouldn't have to apologize, the offending parties are the true villains here.

Just 20 minutes before I sat down to write this entry, while I was walking to work, there were three people outside an office building smoking cigarettes on the sidewalk. There was a bit of construction on the sidewalk, so the normally spacious area had been transformed into a tight spot. I was really and truly hoping that this group of people would a)see that I was coming and b)realize the area was tight, and get the hell out of the way. No such luck.

Two of the cancer stick smokers casually looked my way TWICE, but chose not to move. At that moment I asked myself if I should take the high road and say excuse me, or just turn the music up in my headphones, and plow through these people like Jerome Bettis I am happy to report I chose the Bettis route.

I did not say excuse me, and I walked right through the cigarette smokers , and in the process, the back of my bag made contact with a dude's cigarette, and it fell out of his hand. As I walked away with a smile on my face I heard, "What the f**k is your problem?", I heard, "Dude, what's your deal?", and I heard, "A**hole", but I kept walking. You see, I am a non-violent peaceful brother, and my only desire is to walk to work, listen to my ipod, and walk on sidewalks with clear paths. But if you're going to be a jackass and stand on the sidewalk like you all are the human version of the A Band Apart logo, then we will have a problem, and I will forced to bring the ruckus, Jerome Bettis-style.

My main man jazzbrew told me one time that I need to be more mature in these instances, and I assure you man that I really am trying. Really and truly I am. But as Yoda tells us, there is no try, either do or do not, and this time I did not. Next time though..

As I watch this video, I imagine you doing the dances, and it has provided me with an extended crack up session. Thank you. You is a fool. LMAO

At the risk of encouraging that behavior I must say... it's much more entertaining to read about.

May the force be with you. Always.
