Michael Jackson Week

March 12, 2009

Last night American Idol finished with Michael Jackson week.  Anyone who knows me knows that I love me some Michael Jackson.  For the past several years I’ve listed him in the hero section (I specify that I want him to pull it together) on my MySpace.  So Michael Jackson week should have been a dream come true, however, as I was reminded from way back when Britney Spears tried to pull of a part in a Jacko song, anyone other then Jacks himself leaves dissapointment.  Brittey Spears is not known for her incredible voice, however check out how Michael Jackson completely dwarfs her.

Most of the performances were disappointing however, the “odd’ contestant Alison Iraheta did a good Jacko:

Alas, Jacko’s version is still untouchable: 

My First Yoga Experience

January 14, 2009

I tried Yoga for the first time yesterday at Sol Yoga in downtown Frederick MD. The level of “Woo” was less then I had expected. I went with my wife and our friend Kelsey to the super-easy class. I don’t like exercising around beautiful people, they intimidate me. So lucky for me, the class was primarily comprised of middle-aged, and old women. The teacher likes to tell the class that “If it’s hurting then you’re doing something wrong, it should not hurt.” I’m willing to bet that the feeling of resistance (sometimes called pain) is an indication that you are effectively working out.  But anyway, occasionally she spoke in Sanskrit because ancient languages are relaxing. All in all, I did have a good time and I would definitely do it again.

Afterwords, Ashley and I enjoyed someLedo’s and went home to get some family oriented entertainment; the return of American Idol! (Ashely wants me to be more discrete with out guilty pleasure, oops.)
