Ask me anything
straight from the ministry of magic, y’all.
Always read the books. This is why they are so much better than the films.
He was meant to have a human death
to show he was just human
a twisted human
he was supposed to die like a mortal
not turn into fucking butterflies
Write even more.
Write even more than that.
Write when you don’t want to.
Write when you do.
Write when you have something to say.
Write when you don’t.
Write every day.
Keep writing. ”

We haven’t seen Rico Titou of Hoopys on Hooping.org in quite awhile and we’ve really missed his own unique style of hoop dance a lot. Really cool skills, brilliant colors, gorgeous landscapes, his new demo takes us from the country to the stage, and from day to night with a little The video was filmed by Te Touzein Arambol, Goa, India. Rico is currently living in Vanosc, France, and the soundtrack that he’s hooping to is called “Funkin Lovely” by Love & Light and it’s available for you to download for your own hoopjam on iTunes.
Henna Matanuska of MataHoops has spun up something fun to watch in the sand and surf. Here we find her hooping in paradise, which is more specifically Arambol, Goa, India. It was there on the beach that she challenged herself to play in the water and the end result is something you won’t want to miss. Henna lives in Tampere, Finland, and the soundtrack for this is called “Lillies of the Valley” by Jun Miyake and you can score a copy of it for your very own quite easily on iTunes.
In order to protect their dominant market share, Keurig makers Green Mountain Coffee Roasters has been on a bit of an aggressive tear of late. As with computer printers, getting the device in the home is simply a gateway to where the real money is: refills. But Keurig has faced the “problem” in recent years of third-party pod refills that often retail for 5-25% less than what Keurig charges. As people look to cut costs, there has also been a growing market for reusable pods that generally run anywhere from five to fifteen dollars.
Keurig’s solution to this problem? In a lawsuit (pdf) filed against Keurig by TreeHouse Foods, they claim Keurig has been busy striking exclusionary agreements with suppliers and distributors to lock competing products out of the market. What’s more, TreeHouse points out that Keurig is now developing a new version of their coffee maker that will incorporate the java-bean equivalent of DRM — so that only Keurig’s own coffee pods can be used in it.
Friends don’t let friends use pod coffee makers.

#4. Red Meat
It takes about 50 times more resources to grow grain, feed it to a cow, and then eat the cow than it does to just feed the grain to a human (for example, it takes about 100,000 liters of water to get 1 kilogram of beef, versus about 2,000 liters to get 1 kilogram of soybeans or rice). You lose 90 percent of the calories that grow from the ground if you pass them through a cow first. And don’t shoot the messenger here — I’m no vegetarian. I’ve eaten so much meat that my body is practically made of the stuff. But if you saw somebody routinely take one bite of their food and then toss the rest in the trash, you’d think they were an asshole (“Dude, there’s starving people in the world!”). Well, that’s what you’re doing when you insist on converting your food into steak just to make it taste better. You’re throwing 90 percent of it away, in the form of cow shit.
