This video will make you laugh, inspire you, and make you want a fun pass at Caine’s arcade.
Ah-mazing!Laughing, crying, truly touched by this little boy with a BIG imagination.
On repeat. Wow. :)
Caine, I want a fun pass!
Caine Monroy is a 9-year old boy who spent his summer vacation building an elaborate DIY cardboard arcade in his dad’s used auto parts store.
He’s about to have the best day of his life.
Caine dreamed of the day he would have lots of customers visit his arcade, and he spent months preparing everything, perfecting the game design, making displays for the prizes, designing elaborate security systems, and hand labeling paper-lunch-gift-bags. However, his dad’s autoparts store (located in an industrial part of East LA) gets almost zero foot traffic, so Caine’s chances of getting a customer were very small, and the few walk in customers that came through were always in too much of a hurry to get their auto part to play Caine’s Arcade. But Caine never gave up.
Psst- Caine’s got a college fund growing online, and after watching this you may be inclined to donate. Visit the site here for more pics & deets. http://cainesarcade.com
Make ‘em say YUMMM!
Bon Rappetite is the world’s first hip-hop inspired restaurant, and their menu is hilarious! These guys WIN on creativity (granted, not the healthiest of fare, but far from the worst).
Self-proclaimed home of the ‘Ballin Gourmet’, the names of their dishes are tooo good. This week’s special is ‘Pone Thugs N Harmony’, and other items include…
‘Wu Tang Clams’
All of which you can wash down with a Long Island ‘Iced T. :)
With a little creativity of your own, I’m sure you can re-create SOME of these dishes at home with your own healthy spin (I KNOW, I’m gonna try my own Master P soup). Check out their hip-hop gourmet selection here!
This. Looks. Awesome!
This workout’s motto: “Get ripped while drumming like a rock star!”
If you like doing new things, have a great sense of rhythm or like taking on new challenges, this class is for YOU.
Pound - Rockout. Workout. is a class like nothing I’ve ever seen. It takes the principles of drumming, along with some heavier than normal drumming sticks, and mixes it in with a little dancing and HELLA core work. The result is a fun, challenging, BAD ASS workout, that’ll keep you coming back for more.
Pound - Rockout. Workout.™ is a rockin’ group class based on our revolutionary new method of working out. Its the hippest, most fun, most accelerated way to tone-up while burning fat and burning stress. Get down with POUND™ at your local gym, and if theres not a class there yet, there will be soon!
POUND™ was inspired by the fact that we all have to do core work, but it never gets any more enjoyable. Its always a chore. If we want to look and feel outstanding, we have to do it. Thats why we invented POUND™: to finally make toning more than but just tolerable, but actually enjoyable!
Check out a preview of a class below and visit their site to see how you can bring the class to you (instructors, maybe this is something you’d like to teach?)
Tried hard to share this on Tumblr, but can’t get the platforms to play nice with each other. Bah…

You know how sometimes you fall in love with an artist BEFORE everyone else does? You tell all your friends about them, you become obsessed, then one day the rest of the world suddenly jumps on board, and you’re like ‘duh’, of COURSE these guys are amazing! That feeling, that kick ass amazing feeling that you were there first… well this is your opportunity.
I’m seriously, SERIOUSLY in love with these guys, and their music has become a staple for my workouts. Think video game hip hop, with a little funk & bangin’ old school beats. They’re awesome, unique & really, really nice guys. Oh, and their live show? Dance madness.
To celebrate, the Commodore 84 debut EP is available for a limited time in a PAY WHAT YOU CAN way.
