By reading this blog entry right now you are participating in a grand experiment! Together we embark to answer a question as old as the title track from Beauty and Beast. What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object? Long have our greatest minds pondered this question. From Newton, to Einstein, to Yoda, to Gosling. None have been able to crack the sexiest of human riddles.
In order to solve this I will abandon scientific theory and work backward from experimental measurements. Just like Max Planck working to make light bulbs more efficient for the German government (classic German, working to make things more efficient. One of the few admirable “classic German” qualities).
I previously attempted to solve this question through empirical means while in college in my “Fratty vs Fatty” experiment. I would observe the interaction of an unstoppable force (a drunk and horny frat guy) vs an immovable object (a drunk fat chick) at a party. Unfortunately the University of Virginia was too close minded and refused my submission of this as a senior thesis. Carrying on unsupported by the university my findings were inconclusive as documentation proved… hazy.
In my current experiment, of which you are all participants, I’ll observe what happens to an unstoppable force (the J Breezy Baby blog) when it meets an immovable object (mundane conversation about Christian outreach). That’s right, I’m risking the survival of the internet’s greatest creation according to ‘Things My Mommy Says” magazine (I know it is still second to www.hugh-jackman.com for her). The experiment is simple: create the internet’s greatest website (check!), create a horribly boring video on a subject nobody likes (check?), post that interview to the website (check… see below), and track if the site continues to thrive like Star Wars Episode 5 or if it is never seen or spoken of again like Star Wars Episode 2. With that we will finally know the answer to our question. So feast your eyes, ears, and souls on the video below and decide if you’ll ever visit this blog again.
Video Back Story Finding myself alone in Rob Manoso’s Knoxville apartment, I began drinking (like any socially and emotionally adjusted person would). I finished my rye whisky and much of Rob’s bourbon then grabbed my video camera, hopped on my bike, and set off for Knoxville’s late night scene. After drinking more beers alone at a bar and getting some late night cereal I pulled out the camera and started talking to strangers. The video that follows is objectively not entertaining. I went through the trouble of editing it largely to learn how to edit videos, and after spending so much time on it I felt compelled to share. So here we are. An unstoppable force vs an immovable object.
Again… this video is really uninteresting… I’m sorry.
When we concluded they asked what newspaper or TV station I was with, and I started laughing.
