Hope, in its stronger forms, is a great deal more powerful stimulans to life than any sort of realized joy can ever be. Man must be sustained in suffering by a hope so high that no conflict with actuality can dash it—so high, indeed, that no fulfilment can satisfy it: a hope reaching out beyond this world.

Friends, I Roller-Coaster-Souvenir-Photo-Challenge You!

Every now and then I want to ride a roller coaster. I get a sudden urge to feel that roller coaster adrenaline rush. You know? The “OMG I AM SO SCARED BUT SO FREAKIN’ EXCITED TO RIDE THIS COASTER” rush. AHHHH! Unfortunately, during this time of year, northeast weather makes experiencing such a rush quite impossible; so spring can’t get here any sooner. (Also, fun whack Jersey can finally serve it’s only purpose again: to house amusement parks for New Yorkers). So in the spirit of all things roller coaster, I’ve decided to challenge my friends to take the coolest, most epic roller coaster souvenir photo ever. Here are some awesome (and pretty old) inspirations: 

Now, it’s gotta be safe and totally do able on a non-log coaster. Let’s get creative, folks! Can’t wait. Summer 2012, you’re gonna be great!

Sneaky Sound System’s “When We Were Young” (Breakbot Remix)

I’ve been obsessed with this song for years—it’s such a sexy song! And the video thumbnail is hilarious! 

Songs That Remind Us to LOVE Life: Enrique Iglesias’ “I Like How it Feels” (Ft. Pitbull)

Every now and then you find that song that you can relate to because you feel like total crap (perhaps you just went through a break-up OR maybe your day isn’t going as planned?) BUT every now and then you also find a song that reminds you to embrace life, dance when you can, jump to every beat, laugh at every joke, and over all, just enjoy the moment that you’re experiencing, especially if you “like how it feels!” Enrique Iglesias reminds us to enjoy life as much as we can. After all, we only live once! 

P.S. Ken Jeong is absolutely hilarious—as always—in this video! Check out his dance at the end!
