|THE DAREDEVIL OF SUNSET FALLS|
May 23, 2009
More than 80 years ago in 1926 a logger from Monroe named Al Faussett made national news by staging the dangerous (as in life and death dangerous) stunt of going over Sunset Falls near Index, WA in a small boat. No one had ever done it before…and lived to tell about it.
|ONE MAN AND THE POWER OF DANCE (AND SPACE)|
May 19, 2009
This video has been viewed over 2 Million times (we kid thee not) because it’s so darned infectious. And all it is is one man doing the same dance in about 30 different countries. The video is titled “Where In The Hell Is Matt?”
Matt is a 32-year old guy from Connecticut. Back in February of 2003 he quit his job in Brisbane, Australia and used the money he'd saved to wander around Asia until it ran out. A few months into his trip, a travel buddy gave Matt an idea. They were standing around taking pictures in Hanoi, and his friend said "Hey, why don't you stand over there and do that dance. I'll record it."
He was referring to a particular dance Matt does. It's actually the only dance Matt does. He does it badly. Then through a series of weird life quirks (you can read all about it here http://wherethehellismatt.com/about.shtml) Matt ends up getting paid to go all over the world and dance more.

|SULTAN RIVER LANDSLIDE|
May 17, 2009
We’d forgotten all about this one, just ran across it again yesterday. Kayaking down the Sultan river (especially in the dead of winter) is a major hoot for the Kayaking crowd.
On December 11, 2004 a group of kayakers were making their way down the Sultan River canyon when they happened to be in the right spot at the right time to catch this landslide into the river on video.
This happened not long after they had paddled through the same point in the river where tons of rock, mud, trees and shrub came crashing down. Lucky guys.

|LOCAL SINGER, KILLER VOICE|
May 12, 2009
It’s just a guy, a microphone and a piano but what a great vocal performance. Yvaes' Diirell of Seattle is lead singer with the popular area R & B show band “Type A” and Becky Barney is the band’s keyboard player.
This video is Diirell’s entry for the TV show “America’s Got Talent” with Barney handling piano duty. There’s nothing visually exciting going on here - just Diirell, a studio microphone and a wall in the background - but if you close your eyes and listen, you’ll understand right quick this guy could hold his own with any singer, anywhere, anytime.
The song is “For All We Know.”

|FORMER NAVY SEAL TRAINED FIGHTER: "LET ME WATERBOARD DICK CHENEY"|
May 12, 2009
For those who don't believe former POW and U.S. Senator John McCain - who was tortured for years by the North Vietnamese during war time captivity - when he tell us the politely termed "enhanced interrogation technique" known as waterboarding most certainly is torture - perhaps the following from a Navy Seal trained fighter may carry weight.
Former Seal trained Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura appeared on CNN's Larry King Live the other night to talk about President Obama, the GOP and the Minnesota U.S. Senate race.
Ventura called George W. Bush the worst president of his lifetime then offered to “waterboard” Bush’s former Vice President Dick Cheney. Why? Because Ventura says "5-draft-deferment" Dick Cheney is a coward "who never strapped it on for his country" and doesn't have a clue as to what he's talking about.
Ventura said he was subjected to waterboarding as part of his Navy Seals S.E.R.E training years ago. He added that waterboarding is without a doubt torture telling King, “It's drowning. It gives you the complete sensation that you are drowning... I'll put it to you this way: You give me a waterboard, Dick Cheney and one hour and I'll have him confess to the Sharon Tate murders."
