  • You know, when you've lived in a place for so long, you often begin to take it for granted. You start to forget why you've fallen in love with it in the first place. Yet, all it takes is just a simple breather, a step back, and a careful eye and you'll see again what you thought lost.

    God keep our land safe and free!

    Standing there. On the edge. Ready to jump. Ready to fall down. Ready to fall deep. Ready to fall under.
    My heart beats like a bass drum. Thumping. My adrenaline rising. My eyes dilating.
    This is it.
    This is the moment.
    Everything goes quiet. Yet I can still hear my heart. Pounding. Faster. Faster. Faster. 
    It all goes white. 
    As I come too, I find myself surfing in a sea of oscillating arms. Wipe out. 
    It all goes white again. 
    The throbbing gets louder.
    I open my eyes. I can see... me.
    She approaches me. She talks to me. She touches me. She wants me.
    We collide.  Enveloped in a vortex of feeling. 
    I can see... me.
    Running towards the light.
    It all goes white. 
    Yet I can still hear it. My heart. It won't stop thumping. It won't stop pounding. It won't stop throbbing.
    I am alive. But dark.
    I see her. She smiles. She's light.
    Two sides of the same coin. We flip. Probability.
    It's all just a game. Chance.
    We flip. 
    I feel feeling. I feel it building. Supernova.
    It all goes white.
    My heart cracking like thunder. 
    Black rain drops on my eyes. It's coming.
    I feel feeling. I feel it building. Hiroshima.
    It's all just a game. Chance.
    We flip. 
    It's tails. You win.


    I am not the biggest NFL fan out there, but for some reason I really enjoy watching the Super Bowl. Maybe it's the get together with friends, the adrenaline rush experienced watching that game winning/changing pass, or just the great ads. But now that I've given the thought more of a second, I think it's mainly just for the ads!

    What I really like about them is the fact that they keep getting more outrageous every year in  an attempt to outdo the last guy's outrageous commercial. This may lead, more than often, to some utterly stupid and non watchable ads, but sometimes the  mix of outrageous turns out to be just right and you end up with one hilarious commercial that sets itself as memorable and leaves you with a satisfying WTF moment. 

    Such is the case with KIA's new Super Bowl ad! It's premise is simple: sandman + golden magic dust = wonderful dreams. Nothing new there until the sandman accidentally drops his bag of magic dust on an a man subdued in peaceful slumber. Oh what will this overdose do to that man's poor dreams? Watch the commercial and find out (Hint: Adriana Lima, the lady of many a man's dreams, makes an appearance)...

    Also, KIA has also provided a five hour slow-mo video of Adriana Lima waving a checkered flag. Why you ask? Just cause they can!
