A Rainy Weekend

Hi, all! Candy man Andy Aerts writing in from Belgium again.

Last weekend I found some great stuff for you guys. I don’t know how the weather is in your part of the world, but Belgium had the worst weather in 50 years. Everything flooded and, tragically, three people died. Therefore I looked for some wind/water movies and found these.

I’m into sports, though extreme sports are a little… extreme for me. I don’t think this was what meant to happen. Don’t they tell you not to kitesurf when there is too much wind? I wonder what made his wife stay filming? Did she really think he would be okay?

There should be an image here!Meanwhile, in Belgium…

As this is Lockergnome and most people have a little bit of ‘geekiness’ inside of them, I searched my photo archive for some great footage. Let’s start off with the best B-day cake EVER! They had this at some kind of convention. Also great was kindergarten where parents left their children for a play while they where playing Superman & Wonderwoman. These two weren’t impressed… too busy playing Street Fighter.

Meanwhile, in Scandinavia…

On a serious note, I’m also a great fan of UK’s X-Factor. This week’s favorite was Rebecca Fergusson. I like Aiden, but he had to leave. His performance just wasn’t good enough! I hate it when people are angry when they get voted out of something… be a good loser! Thank you!

I’m still thinking about going to see the new Tron movie. I really like its action figurines.

A long, long time ago…

And last, but surely not least, I leave you with the best invention ever!

See you in a couple of days, guys.

And remember: protect the funny!

Please feel free to follow me on Twitter @AndyAerts. It would warm my candy-loving heart!

Protect The Funny

Andy Aerts here, again. Waking up on 11/11 in Belgium is special. It’s a national holiday called ‘Wapenstilstand,’ the day the English and Canadians liberated Belgium from the Germans in the first World War. I grabbed my iPhone and saw that I had a lot of Twitter mentions… this was strange because I’m, like, a Twitter n00b. It was great to see Chris approved my blog post for Lockergnome! Therefore, this will be my second post… and these gifts I have for all you Star Wars geeky fans: Chewbacca as it should have been and Black Tie Party.

Blogging isn’t really that hard, although I’d like to have the advantages of this man in typing my blogs… Mexicans have all the luck!

There should be an image here!Meanwhile in Denmark… the party begins

During my funny content search, 30% of the movies I pass should be flagged NSFW (not safe for work); mostly they aren’t and I encountered this little one titled ‘sex video accident‘ (it’s SFW). I don’t get the point why any of the two ‘actors’ would want to put this video online, but I’m glad they did! Got to love these interesting couples.

I also encountered a lot of reviews/previews of Call of Duty-Black Ops, though this I didn’t expect. It’s great to see him again as I always loved his shows.

I’m a great fan of children, which is a good thing as I work in a candy store and most of my clients are children. I’m glad to see they get a proper music education, gaming education, and preparation for the real life. I also like children to be active in sports, though this basketball coach really misses an opportunity, I guess!

One more things for parents… You’re NOT doing your daughter a favor by shooting and editing this movie… Don’t be so proud!

Again, I thank all of those who commented on my earlier post and tweeted about it…
You can all follow me on Twitter @AndyAerts where I also post my online funny content. I ‘ll try to post them in English, as some of you recommended.

Hope to see you guys around and… protect the funny!

Candy Is Dandy, But The Internet Is Quicker

Hello, I’m Andy, 27 years old. I live in the beautiful, but politically weird country of Belgium — home of French fries, beer, and chocolate.

I work in a candy store, which means I need to be at work at 7:30 AM, so all the little children can come and buy candy for school, and I stick around until 5 PM.

There should be an image here!My busiest times are of course when school begins or when it ends. During the day I’ve got loads of time and I spend most of it watching online content at YouTube, Break.com, and Failblog, but also Chris Pirillo’s feeds and a few music sites. Here are some of today’s finds.

7 AM
I woke up checking my Facebook and saw that Chris posted the greatest cat tattoo ever… I really don’t like tattoos! I always have to think how they will look when you yourself are the grandparents and you take your grandchildren swimming. How are you going to explain what happened to the kitty? Best kitty tattoo evah!

9 AM
The first school rush of the day is over; let’s check what’s online…

I’m a person who doesn’t make time to eat breakfast. I can honestly say the next movie isn’t one you want to see on a empty stomach! But if you really want to, here you go. It’s like the weirdest rollercoaster I’ve ever seen… you’re sitting face to face with someone you probably don’t know! I’m sorry for the girl sitting opposite of this girl…

I used to be a dog trainer. I had my own border collie that was great at everything except listening to what I had to say. Some Russian people trained their pit bull for some awesome parkour training. In Soviet Russia, dog trains you!

10 AM
After doing some shop-things I found this video titled Cute girl has amazing beat box skills and the title really explains itself. She’s really cute, though I find the part where she is beatboxing so weird (though awesome) that it’s really a turn-off. Maybe some B-Boy (or Girl for that matter) will make her happy some day!

The best movie I’ve found this morning was of the guy in a music studio titled Unknown country singer has amazing voice. I can tell you guys… I almost wet my pants with joy!

Hope you enjoyed this batch of finds! See you round. You can also follow me on Twitter (@AndyAerts), though my tweets will be mostly in Dutch.
