You’ve heard the saying and probably saw the movie but here is video proof that all dogs will surely go to heaven. The second after I saw this video I knew I had to share it with all the Road Bandit fans. I hope this video remind us all, that even though we might be the dominant species in the planet, sometimes we can be outdone by mans best friend.
I’m nine days into my super sober August and so far it’s been EPIC! I have been more productive than the last two months combined and I can’t even imagine what the rest of the month will bring.
Before I hit the road and started Banditing it up, I was a freelance videographer up in Seattle, Washington working for over a dozen production companies including: ESPN, ABC and Fox Sports Net. So of course when I was offered to work a couple of Seattle Mariners games this past weekend I jumped at the chance. I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to come to work at a Major League Baseball game. Every time I’m there I have a huge smile on my face and feel like a kid again.
So this last week I was forced to watch a TMZ video and it was EPIC! The Video involved Roger Huerta, a former UFC Fighter. Roger was involved in a street fight in Austin, Texas when a guy decided to sucker punch a chick right in front of him. Seconds after the chick was hit, Roger approached the man, words were spoken and then fists were thrown.
I don’t condone violence outside of the octagon and I was told that “an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind,” but in this case… kick that dudes ass Roger!
First off, have you heard of ChatRoulette.com? If not, brace yourself because you’re in for one crazy ride.
ChatRoulette.com was created by Andrey Ternovskiy, a 17-year-old high school student in Moscow, Russia. He got the idea from messing around on video chats onSkype and then created the program in less than three days.
He got the name ChatRoulette after watching The Deer Hunter, a 1978 film set in the Vietnam War in which prisoners of war are forced to play Russian roulette.
Unlike most new websites, ChatRoulette.com took off quickly and once South Park aired a parody of it on season 14 episode “You Have 0 Friends” it became huge.
But with it’s new found popularity also came…well, a bunch of dicks!
No seriously, the odds were like one in ten that you were going to meet someone who wasn’t jerking it.
But now there is hope. With a new system in place that works when three users have complained about the same participant within five minutes, that user is then banned from the service for 10–40 minutes.
So this hopefully will get rid of all the dicks, but not all the awesomeness!
Below are some crazy videos showing you how creative people can be on ChatRoulette…Enjoy! Also, if you have tried out ChatRoulette before and have a crazy moment to share, don’t be shy, comment below.

Everyone can, but not everyone will. When the moment comes chances are you will either crap your pants and freeze up, or go for the glory and give it all you’ve got; there is no in between. Either you own it, or you lose it! I’ve met people who go for it all and others who will probably never make even the slightest of attempts.
Then there’s this classy cat named Jeremy Fry.
While attending a Celtics Basketball game in 2009 Jeremy was sitting in his seat waiting for the timeout to get over and the game to continue.
Now, I know from my experiences working NBA games that some timeouts can be quite long, due mainly to TV timeouts. During this long break the Celtic arena started playing Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ On A Prayer” to pump up the crowd and give fans a chance to get on the JumboTron.
I have only had my hand make it up on the JumboTron during, a now extinct, Seattle Sonic’s game and to be honest, it was pretty exciting.
But for Jeremy, a simple wave of the hand or a shake of the hips wasn’t his style. Once he noticed he was on the JumboTron and Jovi’s first lyrics hit his ears, the moment was his to own.
Now, the director could have switched to another camera at any time… but he didn’t! Jeremy grabbed this moment and with a sideways, double leg tap in mid-air, now known in Road Bandit terms as a “Jovi,” landed on the ground.He knew it was time to own his moment and let the whole world know “you gotta hold on to what you’ve got!”
While on the road I try and pick up shooting gigs in each city I am in and last week in Vegas I had the pleasure of covering a group of friends and family on their first “walk for a cure” experience. I’ve never participated in a walk myself and didn’t know what to expect,let alone how I was going to shoot one. This video gives you the full experience of what its like participating in a walk for a cause and this cause was for breast cancer. I follow along Sean and his wife Emily and their family and friends who have all come together to represent Team Mary. Mary was Emily’s mother who lost her life due to breast cancer a year ago.
This is the first episode of a new series called “Tips From The Road” where I will share with you some crazy new tips I’ve learned while traveling around the world. This first episode is about the awesome new internet browser Google Chrome and the exsteniosn Facebook Photo Zoom. I was introduced to this by a kickass Internet Guru named Dax Aurand who has been showing me some awesome new internet techniques that will be taking the Road Bandit Project to the next level. Thanks again Dax:)
Its April 18th and I am in search of a gift for Jason Moffatt for his B-day. Jason is in San Diego while I am here in Vegas trying for some jobs. When it was my Birthday in January Jason shot a nice video for me…so what should I do for him??? I decided to consult the wise one known as “Bird” for answers.
I have been in a weird state of mind lately and I’ve been searching for some motivation and inspiration to get me back on track. Last night I received both in the form of an e-mail from Jason Moffatt. The subject line was a very intriguing one. It read “You Gotta“, I of coursed opened it right away and read the following: “YouTube “Alby Mangels”…..“Dude was my hero about 15 years ago. We’d pretend to be Alby Mangels all the time.” After reading this I checked out the above video and after watching I realized that embracing your journey can really create magical moments. Alby …I’m taking notes.
Many moons ago my buddy Perry was telling about this great game called “Chicken Shit Bingo”. It takes place in a little dive called Ginny’s Little Longhorn Saloon in Austin Texas.
On Sunday’s, the Little Longhorn puts a plywood bingo sheet on top of a pool table. Then they put a wire chicken coup over the top and insert a bird. Anyone who wants to play bets $2 on a number on the board. When the bird shits, the person with the winning number takes the prize pool.
Pretty awesome huh? I thought so too.
In fact, I thought it was so awesome that I hopped onto Plenty Of Fish, (a free dating website) and attempted to score me a Valentines date for Chicken Shit Bingo.
SCORE! This girl was a sweetie all around!
The country western band rocked too. Seriously, they were superb. I love country music. Oh yeah, I almost got in a bar fight protecting a random lady from a drunken cowboy. That would of been pretty awesome for story telling.
My buddies Craig Allen and Couch Surfing Ori joined Randy and I as well. It was a all around great time. If you’re ever in Austin you gotta give this place a peek.
And if you’ll never be in Austin and just want to see a quick glimpse, here is a YouTube video I’ve snagged to give you a idea of what it’s like…. (Sorry, we didn’t shoot much footage)…
