Stronger – A Bodybuilding Documentary from S. Allman on Vimeo.

I just finished watching this interesting 12-minute documentary called Stronger that follows a bodybuilder named David Patterson as he recounts his experiences at bodybuilding competitions over the last 34 years. The 50-something-year-old continues to compete to this day and there’s a really insightful bit toward the end of the video that talks about how anabolic steroids are just bad news for anybody willing to win at any cost.

This photo above from Tomaaz Gudzowaty won 1st place in the general sports division at the 68th annual Pictures Of The Year International competition at the Missouri School of Journalism. I think this is a really great photo.

The New York Times Lens blog has more finalists’ photos from this competition if you want to see.

I don’t know how I missed this, but until today I never noticed that the logo on the Toy Story Aliens uniform was a pizza with a ring around it. I just thought it was a generic drawing of a planet rather than an actual pizza pie. I guess that makes sense though given the fact that they came from Pizza Planet.

Speaking of factory tours, here’s a lovely video showing how Red Wing work boots are made from start to finish. I bet you this place smells good!

This scene is apparently taken from the 1985 film Tampopo and word is that it’s not even the weirdest scene in the movie. Ok, well…Japan. Sorry, I don’t even know how to end that sentence after watching the video above.

Stop what you’re doing and watch this ad for TC Bank now made by Ogilvy Taiwan. The ad follows a group of older gentlemen who relive their younger days of riding motorcycles by dropping everything for 13 days to ride around in Taiwan. Some of them have heart disease, some have lost loved ones, and all of them seemingly love riding their bikes. Totally awesome! [via]
