Happy Birthday, Chuck Norris - chopped up a few fun facts!

Dear Chuck Norris... Happy Birthday! 

For the uninitiated, Chuck Norris is the ultimate man, the epitome of man-dom, a chopping-kicking symbol of masculinity. He is alpha-male. He owns manliness, macho and machismo. All three! On his 72nd Birthday, I'd like to execute a round-house kick and share some fun facts via Mashable.

Warning: If Chuck ever finds out you didn't click on it, he will find you and make you use his toilet paper!

Aamir Khan as Disco Fighter in Delhi Belly - Shit Happens!

Delhi Belly - a hilarious Bollywood hit film

It's been a heavy week with the phenomenal Kony 2012 story casting a sombre cloud over the web. Well, it's the end of the week. To lighten up, here's a ridiculously funny clip from Delhi Belly.

The song's lyrics: I Love You (like I hate you, hate you, hate you...

Yes, that is Bollywood superstar, Aamir Khan wildly gyrating his hips as Disco Fighter as he sheds some psychedelic blood on the dance floor with an Item Bomb.

Eminently watchable, it's a great way to cheer up a weekend. The movie is in Hinglish (Hindi + English) - a dialect commonly spoken in urban India. Watch the Official Trailer of Delhi Belly.

Clever use of Post-its. Awesome Stop Motion Video.

Caught this amazing stop motion video on Clipmania on Germany's popular Euromaxx show. Found it both, immensely entertaining, and clever.

What is Stop Motion?
Stop motion is an animation technique that makes a static object appear to move via physical manipulation. The object is moved in small increments (and this is the clever, well thought-out part) between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames is played as a continuous sequence. Just like a flicker book on screen!

While the final result is breath-taking, stopmotion is hard work. Hats Off! to all the creative teams.

Click on Play, hit Fullscreen and... enjoy!

Thank You, Clipmania / EuroMaxx for sharing, and Triangle TV for broadcasting it out here in NZ!

Updated: Thursday 22 November, 2012 - ThanksGiving Day

As Thanksgiving is (thankfully!) becoming an international festival, I'd like to share two good ones:

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. 
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."
- The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, Robin Sharma

"Happy Thanksgiving to everybody around the globe. 
Even if you don't celebrate, take a minute to be thankful. 
Oh, yeah...and don't overdo it at the dinner table!"
- Facebook update via Will Smith

(My sentiments, exactly.)

Much Gratitude, Best Wishes & Kind Regards to all,
(-: Me :-)
