Shaarawy Breaks Free - Matrix Style

Recommended Posts

HAHAHA Anger Pony!!  I'm super out of touch with most things nerd-related that involve YouTube... I really only use YT to watch episodes of super old anime or play music here at work.

 

Oh wait, there's one nerdy thing on YouTube I know about... that guy that recreates video game songs all by himself and he plays all the parts... ugghh.. what's his naaammeee...

 

OH YEAH SMOOTH MCGROOVE!

 

 

Smooth McGroove is the best. I have his renditions of Man with the Machine Gun and J-E-N-O-V-A...so awesome. I'm addicted to Let's Plays...like, badly addicted. Youtube is the best for getting out of tight spots in games where you repeatedly bludgeon your head against the wall and not text-based source seems to do the trick.

Aaahh Man With the Machine Gun is probably one of my favorite FF8 songs EVER.  I love One Winged Angel too, when he starts busting out the Latin!  It's crazy, every song he gets like right on the mark.  (And the cat cameos, love those.)

 

I think if I played more 'newer games' YouTube would be incredibly helpful.  I remember using it when I was playing SW:TOR to do some type of treasure hunting side quests when I had to climb up the side of this RIDICULOUSLY gigantic downed spaceship in Hoth to get some cube thing... there's no way in hell I could have done what without video assistance!!

Tell me, if you had the strength to take another step, could you do it?

"As opposed to straight boomerangs?"

"Those are called sticks."

 

*is watching the video again*

 

Cat cameos + men swinging on chains from heaven to blast the opposition = yes.

Takin a page out of your book for a themed challenge this go round. Yours are always laid out in such an awesome fashion!!

 

I never used to theme them very much but I found that when I did, it made the challenges that much more exciting and fun because I get to nerd out creating and participating in them!  (Like, do I really want to disappoint Morpheus?  REALLY?!)

Need. to look. This guy. Up.

 

 

i mostly use YouTube for how-to videos on hair, head wraps, and cooking techniques I don't know. 

 

Secondly, for listening to hour-long electro-swing mixes while cleaning.

 

Thirdly, for Youtube series like Emma Approved and Thug Notes.

 

and more and more, for linked vids from Nerd Fitness about proper form for bodyweight.

OH MAN! I got here before you got to page 4809321785091.  Proud of myself.

 

Love your challenge, as usual.  Not the hugest fan of the matrix (well... really just the second movie. LOVED the first and loved (lower case) the third) but I adored the overall plot/themes and watched the Animatrix quite a few times.  Such good stuff in there.

 

I'm ready grab some popcorn and watch you kick yet another challenge's butt! :D

Animatrix is excellent, I finally saw it for the first time only a year or two ago!

I checked outside.  Not too many yet.  Too early in the year.  Lots of crickets on the forums.  So I guess it is summer already.

I think it is pretty obvious swolebob has been skipping leg day...

 

HAHAHA I LOVE IT

 

That sure does resemble some swolebros at the gym... especially Turnip Shaped Man, who isn't around anymore because I think his free 3 month YMCA-burned-down membership is up.  Thank goodness.

Subbed, challenge looks sweet. And neo is awesome.

 

How many Burpees can Neo do in 7 minutes?

 

"Even if I complete the jump in zero time, it still 0.57 seconds to hit the ground from 1.6 meters.  That would be 736 Burpees in 7 minutes."

 

"Yes, but do the rules of gravity have to apply?"

Dude dude don't give anyone ideas about ANTI GRAVITY burpees...... actually...... I wonder if they would be any easier without pesky gravitational resistance? You'd probably look like a fool and work WAY more muscle groups trying to flail into correct form...
