Candice Swanepoel

For my first woman, I wanted to make it as good as it could be. I think Candice will suffice!

Let me google her for you:


Being There (1979)

Being There is a well directed dark-comedy about a simple-minded man named Chance (Peter Sellers). After an unforeseen circumstance, Chance has to leave his house with only the knowledge he has learned from television. Slowly but surely you figure out that Chance has never left his home before and is completely naive to the outside world. Chance is picked up by an influential businessman who has taken to Chance and gives advice based on what Chance has to say, which isn’t much.

This film starts off somewhat slow. But, the more you find out about Chance and how utterly incompetent he is, the more you fall in love with him. His love for television continually gets him into trouble and leads to some great scenes with all characters involved. The further into the story the more you understand what Hal Ashby (director) is trying to convey. Call this film a satire, dark-comedy, or just a simple story, whatever the label I’m sure you’ll love it. The ending is brilliant and leaves you asking the question who the joke is really on.

7 Billion People

Here is an interesting video from National Geographic about the world’s population and what it really means. They put it in perspective in an effective way.

Blake Griffin Put-Back Dunk over the Heat

Blake Griffin will most likely be a reoccurring theme here for dunkoftheday. And I don’t think you’ll be too upset…

Derrick Rose Alley-Oop vs. Detroit

Derrick Rose is one of top dunking point guards in NBA history… And heres the evidence to prove it. Shout out to Stacey King for another classic call.

Blake Griffin over Kyle Korver

Stacey King is one of my favorite broadcasters today. He’s usually right on top of any D. Rose/Bulls dunk, but you can tell that he was speechless for a moment or two after this one. It’s going to be scary the type of highlight reels this man will have after a career of dunks like this!
