“The tragedy in life doesn’t lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach.”–Benjamin Mays
“By recording your dreams and goals on paper, you set in motion the process of becoming the person you most want to be. Put your future in good hands — your own.”–Mark Victor Hansen
“Give yourself an even greater challenge than the one you are trying to master and you will develop the powers necessary to overcome the original difficulty.”–William J. Bennett – The Book of Virtues
“The entrepreneur is essentially a visualizer and actualizer… He can visualize something, and when he visualizes it he sees exactly how to make it happen.”–Robert L. Schwartz
“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”–Aristotle
“If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you develop the habit in little matters. Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude.”–Charles R. Swindoll
“Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”–Calvin Coolidge
“I didn’t read most of these, just copied them from a LifeHacker article, because that’s how I roll.” -Leon Caruthers.
Doin’ some triceptz.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve let a few things from this site bleed over into everyday life. The one that I use most often is “…and then I found twenty dollars.” It’s become kind of a mental thing, too–I kept waiting for a guy to say it this morning, but he just kept going on and on and on about the time he nailed your mom behind the Arby’s on Foothill Blvd. Yeesh.
Anyway, speaking of people who never shut up, enjoy these highlights from last night’s White House Corespondent’s Dinner while you wait for the Tuckers to show up. A real laff riot!
(Oh, and happy birfday, Brendan!)
When I read that Columbia University is being sued by the man “not responsible” for sexually assaulting another student it makes me happy. Emma Sulkowicz, has since began carrying a mattress around the university as part of an art project Art is a reflection of culture and, in my estimation, the pendulum has swung pretty far to the left. It may be a pipe dream but I really want to believe it will move back a little closer to the center. Who knows, I may be crazy but I think we’ve reached peak tranny.
I think we should all thank xbradlock, lawyer to the assholes, for putting up the worst post in H2 history. It was a pretty high bar to clear but he made it happen. Way to go, xbrad.
Today’s music selection is from an obscure musician that resides in SoCal. He’s been around the block, making records for a few years. I think you know where this is going…and boy howdy, that bear can play the skins.
This is Emily Shaw. She has a really weird body, face, and doesn’t like to smile. Her interests include looking confused, being confused, and general confusion. She also has really big natural cans. How is a confused, barely intelligible girl to make a living? What say you, mare?
Yes, it’s absolutely real.
Good morning, and welcome to another edition of Hunky Hump Day.
Have I said how much I love Cyn for linking KCDX radio? This album must be in the KCDX vault, because I’ve heard a couple of songs.
Now that we have something to listen to, let’s ogle some hunks.
Ioan Gruffudd from “Forever”
First trip to Fairfax in a couple of months in a few hours, so even less effort than usual.
Checking for lint.
I think you know where this is going…
True story: I saw Natalie Merchant at U of I with Sheryl Anderson. It was sugary sweet.
