Articles from September 2009
I’ve decided to start a new feature here at Living with Balls. It will be called from Worst to First. In this feature, I will take a legendary musician(s) who has released several records and rank their worst album all the way to their best album. This will primarily be rap music but I will try and keep it diverse for the sake of my readers. Hopefully the column will spark some debate in the comment section.
The first person featured will be my all-time favorite rapper: Tupac Shakur. He’s had a lot of albums released, both dead and alive. So let’s get started. (more…)
It’s good to be a New York Jets fan right now. That is a sentence I haven’t said many times in my life. I may have said it briefly last year but then Brett Favre and Eric Mangini quickly brought me down to Earth. This year is different, however. The Jets are now 3-0 after a 24-17 win over the Titans Sunday and all signs point to this team being for real. Here are a few reasons why the Jets will not disappoint their fans this season (for once). (more…)
It’s Friday which means its time for the another edition of the Links of the Week. Each week ,Living with Balls checks the blogosphere for some great links. There were plenty of entertaining links from the past week so be sure to check all of them out. (more…)
No it’s not my site, unfortunately. The other day a friend of mine turned me on to a site called Lamebook. To those of you who aren’t familiar, it’s a site compiled of posts from people’s Facebook pages that are usually inappropriate, dumb and hilarious.
I went on there for the first time yesterday and I spent a good hour laughing my face off. Sites like this piss me off because I wasn’t the one to think of such an awesome idea…Especially when I wrote a post called Facebook Pet Peeves, which outlined a number of the issues that appear on Lamebook.
Here I am trying to come up with creative posts to write to get a few hundred readers a day, while the owner of this site just posts a few pictures and is probably getting thousands of views each day.
Anyway, here are some of my favorite posts that I found yesterday. Take a look. (more…)
To the delight of gamers everywhere, Halo 3: ODST was released yesterday. I was a big fan of Halo 3 so I definitely plan on getting ODST. However, just to do my due diligence, I decided to check out some of the reviews. After checking out the reviews, I am sold. (more…)
Yes you read that title right. There’s an old saying that says “necessity is the mother of invention.” Well…I think it should be the other way around. Invention is really the mother of necessity. You don’t realize how much you need something until you have it. I realized recently that if certain gadgets were removed from my life, I’d have a very difficult time adjusting even though there was point in my life when they weren’t around. Therefore, I have compiled a list of items that were once considered luxuries that have now become necessities. (more…)
Because they’re holding each other ever so closely.
Pete Carroll also once macromed himself a pair of jean shorts.
With the advances in technology over the years, the mediums for flirting have changed. No longer do you have to meet in person or make a phone call to flirt. Thanks to instant messaging, text messaging and social networking sites, it’s easier than ever to charm a girl.
In fact, the first time I contacted my fiancé after we met was through Facebook. Most of our contact early on was through either Facebook or AOL Instant Messenger. These tools are great for guys like me, who are usually to pussy to actually pick up the phone to talk to a girl.
Instant messaging has introduced new methods of flirting. However, many guys, such as myself have trouble picking up on flirting when it’s in person. It’s even harder to pick up on these signals online.
So to help you out, I have consulted with a number of trusted women to help you find out if a girl is actually interested or if she wants nothing to do with you. I asked my fiancé, as well as good friends Sarah, Megan, Amanda, Karen and Melissa. Their names have been changed to keep their secrets safe. (more…)
