I damn sure didn’t.

Marcus Yam’s Triple Exposure Photography

These beautifully composed triple exposure photographs were created completely in-camera by Seattle Times photographer Marcus Yam. Challenged to produce a visual story to go along with a Seattle Times essay, Yam determined that his standard photojournalistic approach would not fit with the content.

George Carlin – Natural Disasters

The legendary entertainer left us with a incredible catalog of thought-provoking material dating back to the late 70’s. Here, in his last HBO special entitled “It’s Bad For Ya”, he reasons with his audience on why he enjoys nature’s wrath. It’s one of my favorite Carlin pieces, packed with imagery and sarcastic  humor, its ambiguous ending leaves the viewer with an indescribable feeling of wonder.

Self-Defense: The Muay Thai Leg Kick

The low leg kick, or “cut kick” is a staple of Muay Thai. It is meant to “chop” down your opponent, little by little, and shut down their leg muscles. After a few leg kicks, your opponent will not be able to put any pressure on that leg, so their footwork, kicks, and punches will be virtually useless. Make sure you practice the Muay Thai kick often, and master it, so you can “chop” your opponent’s legs down! — Shane Fazen
