Bucket List.

In the spirit of New Years, I have decided to update my bucket list by striking off a few things I accomplished last year and adding some new ones to the list. Enjoy.

Run a half marathon.
Run a full marathon.
Sky dive.
Visit Canada.
See the sunrise from the top of Mt.Timpanogos
Dunk a basketball.
Build a robot.
Write a movie script detailing the origins of Bigfoot (Bigfoot Begins).
Party with Thomas Kinkade.

So I'm making pretty good progress on my list I think.  Maybe this year I'll actually get around to writing that movie because lets be honest, that things a gold mine.

Wikipedia All-Stars: Thomas Kinkade

I like to waste a lot of time on wikipedia. Sometimes I find something that I think other people should know about. I found this little gem earlier today while reading up on the famous 'painter of light', Thomas Kinkade:

In 2006 John Dandois, Media Arts Group executive, recounted a story that on one occasion ("about six years ago") Kinkade became drunk at a Siegfried & Roy magic show in Las Vegas and began shouting "Codpiece! Codpiece!" at the performers. Eventually he was calmed by his mother.

Kudos to you Mr. Kinkade. Question: How can you possibly improve a night filled with gay magic, albino tigers, and your mom? Answer: Heavy drinking!! There are at least 3 of his paintings in my parents home, I just hope the 4th is as magical as this.

Song of the Day.

Pretty much my favorite song right now:

I thought the video was pretty smart too. Their new CD is way different from older stuff, but its perfect "make me happy" music.
