I don’t impress easily. It’s true. It’s not because I’m snotty…it’s more because I set the bar sky-high. I’ve only been impressed with myself ONCE and that was making it through the birth canal with minimal damage. There’s also very little I haven’t seen. That whole “Curiosity Killed the Cat” is a crock.
So I was only half paying attention to that TV show “America’s Got Talent” when they announced an act called Silhouettes. Like I said…I don’t impress easily. But this group of 42 kids ranging in age from 3 to 18 blew my mind, yo. BLEW IT! And I cried. I’ll admit it. I wept. The choreography was absolute genius these kids dance with more heart and soul than I’ve ever seen in my life. It’s like 42 different bodies with one heart and mind. It’s truly an experience to watch them.
So far they’ve done two acts that were nothing alike, yet equally amazing. I think that speaks volumes of their raw talent. Check out their performances and for the love of GOD, go vote for these kids next time they perform. It’s not everyday you see something you’ve never seen before. (Click on pics to watch videos)

So I didn’t win the lottery last night. Obviously. Do you really think I’d sit down to blog if I’d just won $355 million smackers? Really? By the time I’d hit ‘Publish’, someone would have already disarmed my alarm system, kicked down the door and shot me in the face. Trust me….they’re out there, these kind of people. The same folks who troll the newspapers for obituaries so they can have a burgle-fest while everyone is off mourning. It’s a shame, really. Obviously, these people weren’t breast-fed.
Anyway…in case you haven’t already seen/heard this…I’m posting it here. I’m originally from Columbus, Ohio. The intersection this dude is standing at is a hop, skip and jump away from the Geh-Toe. Liquor store ever 3 feet and a crack-house between each liquor store. So it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that 99.9% of the pan handlers you see around there are drunk with a cracked head.
So I’m sure hundreds of people went flying by this homeless man (Ted Williams) without giving him a second glance. The newspaper must’ve been hard-up for news so they decided to interview the guy. And you know the rest. Uploaded, YouTube, viral, blah blah blah.
Ted may not have bought a lottery ticket last night….but he sure won one today! Hopefully he can handle all the b.s. that comes with being ‘found’. So I lift my Mucinex and generic brand bottled water (I’m sick, cheap and can’t drink alcohol) and give you a toast.
Talk on, brother….talk on.
