Yes, this may be a marketing ploy from Nike. Yes, maybe it is “well-coordinated spontaneity on behalf of Nike’s marketing dept.” But, ultimately, it’s a video showing two men traveling to and from many different countries in just 10 days and having an extraordinary time. If you choose to critique this video, that’s your choice; Although, it’s also my choice to take this video as inspiration, NOT to go and buy a Nike product, but instead, to go travel and explore our planet. There is so much out there and so few of us are able to see it all, or even some for that matter. And it’s obviously filmed and edited very well, which makes it that much more amazing. Kudos to Max Joseph and Casey Neistat.
we shot this in 10 days, just the two of us.
Max, my friend in the movie, is a talented filmmaker, he edited this movie. check him out http://www.maxjoseph.com/‘

In the past few days since Whitney Houston passed away, there are many articles coming out which shed light into who she really was and some of the secrets that she was forced to hide from people. According to many, Ms. Houston’s one true love in life (other than daughter, Bobbi Kristina)was a woman: Robyn Crawford.
Crawford was Whitney Houston’s assistant, and it was obvious to many that they shared more than a friendship. Peter Tatchell, who wrote an amazing article for DailyMail, discusses how he met Ms. Houston and ms. Crawford in 1991 at the Reach Out & Touch HIV vigil that was held in London. This is when Tatchell shared that it was clear to him that Houston and Crawford were madly in love.
They held hands in the back of the car like teenage sweethearts. Clearly more than just friends, they were a gorgeous couple and so happy together. To see their love was infectious and uplifting.
Gay rights campaigner Peter met Whitney at an HIV vigil in London in 1991
Whitney was happiest and at the peak of her career when she was with Robyn. Sadly, she suffered family and church pressure to end her greatest love of all.
Sadly, she was pressured into believing that the most important relationship to her, at the time, could damage her public image, and therefore, career. She eventually gave into the pressure that was put on her by the church and her family, and ended her lesbian relationship with Robyn Crawford. This situation is what led to the spontaneous marriage to former husband, Bobby Brown.
As we all know, Bobby Brown was not a good influence on Whitney and led her down the path of self-destruction. She was willing to down this path because she was emotionally traumatized by her recent split with her one true love.
It seems likely that the split with Robyn contributed to her substance abuse and decline.
There is a known correlation between denial of one’s sexuality and a propensity to self-destructive behaviour. Homophobia undoubtedly added to the pressures on Whitney and hastened her demise.
This is not a story to tarnish Whitney Houston and/or Robyn Crawford, but rather a story to show what homophobia can do to a person. It is also a way to honor their relationship seeing as it was pretty important to both of these women.
Tatchell wasn’t intending on outing Ms. Houston, because there had been many people before him that had hinted at the same message.
Years ago, she was outed by Bobby’s sister, Tina, and by her former bodyguard, Kevin Ammons.
Bobby Brown hinted in his autobiography that she married him to dispel lesbian rumours: ‘I believe her agenda was to clean up her image . . . The media was accusing her of having a bisexual relationship with her assistant, Robin [sic] Crawford . . . that didn’t go too well with her image. In Whitney’s situation, the only solution was to get married . . . [to] kill all speculation.’
Telling the truth does not besmirch Whitney’s memory. It honours the most important relationship she ever had.
It would be nice to see people not have to jump into fake relationships to uphold the image that society has of someone. Love should be the reason behind spending your life with someone, not politics, or public façade. Poor Whitney is an example of what damage could be done.

Kermit mocks their blatant and pointless fear mongering before Miss Piggy offers her own opinion on Fox News.

HAHAHA! This woman clearly has some issues. The first one being that she’s far too large and unhealthy to even execute a kick. I mean, seriously, if you’re going to talk shit to this man you better fucking be able to actually kick him when you intend on doing so. She’s also very calm during her attack which just seems rather odd. And that she is racist and he’s clearly much more intelligent is just pathetic.
Thank goodness there are people as idiotic, moronic, and just plain stupid enough to do things like this in front of other people (with cameras). Without them, I would be way more bored than I could even imagine.

A 36-year-old woman got so frustrated on August 23rd, 2011 after being told she needed to be searched, that she completely undressed. Seriously, this bitch just got fully naked right in the main area where everyone could see everything. According to her lawyer, Charles Richardson, she made “an impetuous decision” and was doing this because she was fed up with being strip-searched every time his client came through customs.
Loukai Phillips has plead guilty of indecent exposure due to the fact that she was in the middle of a goddamn airport. Seriously, I can’t get over that she was standing naked in an airport with all those damn people. Then to be arrested on top of that. Bravest bitch ever.
On top of this she’s now facing a fine because there were children present AND she was cursing repeatedly while removing her clothing. This is fucking amazing. And to top it off, she doesn’t seem to be that displeased with her decision.
Phillips, a Bermudian who returned to the Island to close down her bank account, told airport police: “I would never do it again, I’m just tired of being searched.”
Bravo Phillips! This classy broad was heard yelling, “If you want to see me naked, you can do it right f***ing here.” That’s right officers, and see, she follows through on her promises. Unfortunately so do they, they need to search and tell you they will do so. Their suggestion to Phillips was simple, “If you don’t want to be searched, don’t come through Customs.”
The only way this could be better? A video of this bitch freaking out and getting naked in front of a damn audience.
Olympic champion gymnast ‘attacked cabbie, refused to pay fare and threatened to kill officers who arrested him’
What is with all these pro athletes acting like dumb asses? I mean, first we have the almost Olympic snowboarder who pisses on a young girl during a flight and refuses to apologize, and now this? You guys are dicks. Sure, you’re good at sports and we enjoy watching you, but this is so much more entertaining. Your misery provides much more laughter than your accomplishments. So, I guess I should actually be thrilled that you act like such spoiled little shits.
Olympic gymnastics champion Paul Hamm has been accused of hitting and kicking a taxi driver, damaging a cab window and refusing to pay a $23 fare.
As Hamm, 28 sat handcuffed in a police cruiser after the incident in suburban Columbus, he can be heard in a video asking officers to let him go and saying, ‘I don’t understand. I’m gonna kill you guys.’
$23?! Holy hell, this story just got that much more interesting. Even I would pay $23 and I am severely broke at this point in time. Apparently he had 8 drinks and that’s the reason for his explosive behavior. Again, 8 drinks?! What a pussy. I mean, yes, that is excessive but is no excuse to beat the crap out of a cab driver who is bringing your rich Olympian ass home. And now that $23 cab ride has turned into a much more hefty fine due to the physical assault and threats of murdering police officers.
Seeing as he’s been training for the upcoming Olympics in London and working as an assistant coach at Ohio State, there may or may not be repercussions for his actions as far as his sports career is concerned. Luckily, he has a twin brother who could always take his place and win the Gold for him, as we learned with the young Hockey brothers! Although, they should have learned from this to NOT be honest and all will be okay
Hollywood Reporter – According to preliminary toxicology reports released by Amy Winehouse’s family, the singer had no drugs in her system at the time of her death.
“Toxicology results returned to the Winehouse family by authorities have confirmed that there were no illegal substances in Amy’s system at the time of her death,” a rep for the family tells TMZ.com.
“Results indicate that alcohol was present but it cannot be determined as yet if it played a role in her death,” adds the statement.
“The family would like to thank the police and coroner for their continuing thorough investigations and for keeping them informed throughout the process. They await the outcome of the inquest in October,” it concluded.
Winehouse’s father, Mitch, recently returned donations made to a foundation in her honor after he said somebody “stole” the domain AmyWinehouseFoundation.com.
An homage to Amy Winehouse will be aired at the MTV VMAs on Aug. 28.
Winehouse was found dead in her London home on July 23.
Still in shock that she died on my birthday. This was insanely shocking, but good to see that she wasn’t on drugs at the time.
BBC will most certainly not be re-airing this, but you should definitely watch. A writer/broadcaster has a different outlook on the riots and the police’s involvement and their cruel tactics of handling the protesters. Granted, it is chaos and I’m sure the police are struggling themselves, but they should know well enough to not racially profile and be professional. I know for a youtube video, this is a bit long (only 4 minutes), but I’m telling you, it’s worth it.
