030: Randy’s Monday Morning Obsession #2 – Sorcerers of the Magic Kindom

This is one of a series of regular posts from my dear friend Randy. Check back every Monday for a fresh look at what has taken over Randy’s litter box of a brain that week. For more timely ramblings from him head straight to the source, @RMChase3.

Hey friends Randy here coming at you hard and fast with the new obsession. I was going to present you
with a obsession that is close to my heart. But then something happened this weekend I went to the
happiest goddamn place on earth. (For those of you that don’t know that’d be Disney world.) Now you
may be saying “Hey that’s not something worth obsessing over!” You would be right I’m mostly just
bragging. It’s what I did at the park that is worthy of obsession. Last year Disney launched a interactive
collectible card game in the park called Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom. When I heard about it I was all
“What!? I love cards! And games! And collectibles! And interactivity!”

029: Friday Jams | The Lumineers – Stubborn Love

Be good this weekend.

 

028: Tuesday Breakdown For 01.22.13

Sorry for the delay, I was too busy gorging on 4 Rivers BBQ. Mmmmmm. Be jealous.

1. Wedgie? I Hardly Know Ye.

In another case of startling misuse of law enforcement a man from Bradenton, FL was arrested for battery after he was accused of, you guessed it, giving another man a wedgie. Now, you might feel bad for this young man until you realize he is not but a wastrel as he was actually filming his wedgie escapades so he could profit from them by posting the film to Youtube. All good things to those who wait.

2. Nosewalker

Do you like to longboard? Are you sure? Have no idea what longboarding is? Either way, watch the first 3:40 of this video and you’ll walk away hating it.

3. The 20th Anniversary of 1993.

Who knew that 1993 was one of, if not the most important year in Rap music. NPR started off a long series of in depth looks at the music made that year and the culture that created it and was created from it. You can find the first episode “The Chronic” 20 Years Later: An Audio Document of The L.A. Riots online for free.

4. The Power Of T.

The Art Of Manliness has long been a source of knowledge and inspiration for me, but this week has featured some of the most truly informative pieces they’ve ever published. All week the site’s author Brett McKay has been running a series about testosterone and men based on his own insight and experiences. I cannot recommend these pieces enough, especially for young men but also for all men as well as significant others and spouses. Start with the first piece on The Declining Virility Of Men and The Importance of T and then work your way through the others Benefits of Optimal T, How Testosterone Is Made, and How To Increase Testosterone Naturally.

027: Randy’s Monday Morning Obsession #1 – Ingress

This is the first of a series of regular posts from my dear friend Randy. Check back every Monday for a fresh look at what has taken over Randy’s litter box of a brain that week. For more timely ramblings from him head straight to the source, @RMChase3.

Hey what’s up for those of you that don’t know my name is Randy. (Although I should say that’s not
conditional if you do know me it’s still Randy.) I’m here today because I need to get something off my
chest. I suffer from OCD. Well OCD minus the Compulsive Disorder so maybe just O. This is something
I’ve recently come to realize. In my past I find something I really like until I consume all of it thoroughly
and completely and move on to the next thing that I obsess over. Well it’s time to stop keeping these
things to myself and share them with you, the people. So How Many Beards presents to you: Randy’s
Monday Obsession.

021: Merry Christmas

I want to wish a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of you.

And if for some reason you’re still not in the Spirit, let me recommend allowing Big Boi read you How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

020: Friday Jams – Christmas Edition

One of my favorite Christmas Songs from one of my favorite bands. Happy holidays to you and yours.

Happy Christmas (War Is Over) by Thrice

019: Christmas Cheer

It’s here, the long hard final push to the holidays. One more weekend of last minute holiday parties followed immediately by Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. For me this mean a gluttony of spending time with family and friends, wantonly eating everything that comes in front of you, and consuming booze in copious and varied quantities. So How Many Beards is here to give you a few tips on how successfully navigate the coming gauntlet that doesn’t end until you’re nursing black coffee, nibbling a toast and honey, and watching Mean Girls while moaning on the couch on January 1st.

015: Friday Jams – Daft Punk

Happy Friday.

Little known fact, the first time I heard Daft Punk I was probably 12 or so and Cartoon Network played Insterstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem. Part of which is what became the music video for One More Time.

Anyways, here’s your dance party in a box.

 

 

014: The Womp.

Let’s face it. Ever since Inception came out, The Womp is everywhere in movies, especially in trailers. It’s kind of like back in 2010 when everything was blue and orange. In fact I brought evidence in case you doubted me.
