On the morning of Nov 19th we lost a valuable member of our family. Our 13 year old bulldog Bruno had to be put to sleep. He started having an extended seizure and there wasn’t much to do at the pet clinic except keep him sedated. It was time to say our goodbyes.
Even though he had arthritis, could hardly hear or see toward the end, he was still humping his stuffed gorilla the night before like an adolescent alpha male. He lived a long life full of love, delicious home-cooked meals, and giant stuffed animals. He was loved by everyone, and will never be forgotten.
Here is a video of Bruno doing what he does best. Eating, you wouldn't even know that he is a million years old...
I don't know what took Jean-Claude Camille François Van Varenberg or Jean-Claude VanDamme such a long time to finally break into commercials but, after such a long time of not seeing my favorite action star, I couldn't be happier.
This video was only released on Nov 14th, these are the youtube stats on 5:40pm Nov 15th. This is a commercial that 10 million people have seeked out to watch. Volvo didn't even have to pay to place it anywhere. People really love JCVD. But for real, as far as an advertisment goes, this is an outstanding success.

For as long as I can remember I have been obsessed with not having anything in my pockets. Of course, that isn't usually possible because generally I always had to have my wallet and keys in my pocket. In the early 2000s when everyone started getting a cellphone I was resistant. One of my primary barriers to entry was the distaste of having ANOTHER thing to store in my pocket.
Now I have three things: wallet, keys, iPhone. I cannot live without these three things, so I have to cope with heavy pockets. I can't do much to adjust the weight and heft of my phone and my keys (I assure you I keep them very slim). My wallet, however, I do have full control over. I'm adamant about keeping a streamlined wallet. Why doesn't everyone? When I see people pull out a giant brown brick (from their BACK pocket no less) I am shocked, and often angry. Why are you keeping all your crap in there? Why do you have such a huge wallet!? It is time for a wallet audit. Look at what I have in mine.
