Mr. Original is back at it again. After a relatively successful first shot, I figured I’d spill out a few more things that really tick me off.  Actually, I think I just really like to complain about things in general. But that’s totally okay because all of what I am about to say can probably relate...

A few weeks ago, I touched on the fact that the quality of Disney movies just hasn’t been as good since I was younger. The same goes for television shows. If you turn on the TV today and switch to Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, or Disney Channel, you will not find anything like what used to be aired...

One of the best qualities you can look for in your fitness partner is that you have different strengths. For example, if...

Yeah, I’m doing it. Family Guy rips off everything. It’s about time someone rips them off. And who better to do it than “Mr. Original” himself? (At least that’s what my roommate calls me). No one, that’s who! So get ready to be enthralled everyone. ...You know what really grinds my gea...

Being healthy and in shape is not all about how you look (name of the blog aside), it is more about how you feel.  Over 16 million people have watched the TED talk by social psychologist Amy Cuddy on power poses, but many still don’t know the advantages of them. Power poses, even when we’re ...

I have always loved Disney movies. The Lion King still tops my list of all-time favorites after all these years. The characters, as well as the songs made it an instant classic. From 1989-1999, Disney animation was at the top of its game, producing the musical renaissance that I gladly grew up dur...

What are sports? I'm not looking for the simplistic and sarcastic answer to that question. That is remedial at the lowest level of thinking for the average sports fan. Sports are people playing for a living. Sports are groups of men and women joining forces to achieve the one goal that less than...
