Tripping Over Times Square

Last night, Janna and I were rushing home after teaching in New York City, and in the middle of Times Square, I had a moment I hope I never get to repeat.  I tripped — over my own two feet, or the curb, or a break in the sidewalk — and instantly fell long and hard on the sidewalk.  I was stunned for a moment and didn’t quite know where I was.  Janna was behind me somewhere and I remember one woman bending down to ask me if I was okay.

The iMuscle for iPad Review

iMuscle is a new, $5.00USD, iPad App from NOVA and, at first glance, it seems like it would be a real winner of a Human Body in Motion workout App using an animated anatomical man as your virtual trainer but, in reality, iMuscle is nothing more than a curiosity.

Stott Pilates Reformer Review

The Stott Pilates reformer is an expensive salve for the body rounding up at a hefty $2,600.00USD — but if you can get past the gutter delivery and get the thing inside your home — the Stott Pilates Reformer is a big, heavy, one-hundred-pound, winner.

When Curbside Service Means: We Drop it in the Street

I’m a little late in posting this article today because my back is killing me, my wallet is weeping, and I hurt my leg yesterday trying self-deliver a 187-pound Stott Pilates Reformer I purchased from Amazon.com.  If wishes were made my way, I’d never have the made purchase and I’ll tell you why.  First, look at my Amazon.com invoice below.  I’m posting it here to verify I bought the godforsakenthing and to show the ZERO charge for shipping.  That’s important to remember for later.

The Faked Fury of a Woman Scorned

Women all over the internet are up in arms and supporting “Emily” — the allegedly scored wife of “Steven” — by linking to “Emily’s” blog: http://thatgirlemily.blogspot.com/ and adding “Emily” to their Blogrolls in support of her public revenge.
The only problem is “Emily” — and her cheating husband “Steven” — are fake.

They are a Viral Advertising marketing campaign created to dupe people and exploit their emotions for profit:

The latest in viral marketing is brought to you by Court
TV, spokespeople for the network confirmed yesterday, in what industry
experts call a “shill marketing” move, whereby the people – that’s
right, dumb ol’ you and me – are duped into believing a gigantic
billboard in Midtown is for real.

First clue that this open letter from a woman scorned was 100 percent
pure baloney came when bloggers spotted the same billboard in other
parts of the city and in Los Angeles. That’s odd, seeing as how poor,
pilates-obsessed “Emily” wrote on her blog that she placed the ad
strategically outside the office of “Steven,” her supposed no-good
philandering spouse.

The Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Review

I have been actively practicing Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga six days a week (excluding Saturdays and the Moon Days) since October, 2000. I have waited at least six months to write this review in order to speak from a more dedicated point-of-view. Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga takes years to begin to learn and, while I realize I am still a babe in the limbs of Ashtanga, I do have some thoughts and insights that may help you decide if Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is the right method for training your mind, body and spirit.
