A visit to the ladies-only football clinic hosted by Rob Gronkowski


Lana Berry visited Gronkfest:
On top of the Gronk-tinis, the impressive open bar offers several types of wine, beer, and mixed drinks. Aren't we supposed to do football drills after this? Not important. Keep drinking. I see women polish off four or five Gronk-tinis. There is also a room with a huge spread of catered food, all of it with reasonable calorie counts (for the ladies), but most of the women appear to be sticking to the alcohol. 
... 
And then I hear the familiar sounds of "Teach Me How to Dougie," a song that had permanently etched itself into my brain and probably yours three years ago. But wait... this is not "Teach Me How to Dougie." This is some kind of Rob Gronkowski remix. This is a thing. I begin to wonder if the tackling drills gave me a concussion. This can't be actually happening. 
But it is happening. The women have started to dance. Both Gronkowski brothers have joined in. This is what we were warned about. THE DANCE OFF IS HAPPENING.

Mexican pointy cowboy boots








Vice:

In this episode of Behind the Seams we head to the dusty city of Matehuala, Mexico in search of the pointiest long-toed cowboy boots ever made. Over the past year, the botas vaqueras exóticas phenomenon has overrun the rodeo dance floors and clubs of this area and even spreading North into Texas, Tennessee, Oklahoma, and any place where big groups of immigrant Mexicans have taken root. We made our way to Desierto Light, one of the clubs in this area where party promoters host dance-offs to music known as Tribal Guarachero. For the finals competition, the 17-year-old prodigy DJ Erick Rincón of the 3ballMTY crew performed for a crowd of adoring pointy-boot wearing raver cowboys.
Just a guy thing, apparently. Via these sites.

Link roundup

1. I mentioned the other day that Neal Stephenson had written an article lamenting what he saw as stagnation in scientific development. I don't believe that he mentions in the article his own association with Intellectual Ventures (which is now suing Motorola).

2. Corruption and death at a Vatican-connected hospital.

3. Video of Tom Cruise in a dance battle. It's like Zoolander in real life.

Serious hula hooping action



A cubicle drone meets a hot girl and hula hoops through downtown Los Angeles in this movie by Philo Hagen. (Probably NSFW on account of a few barley dressed hula hoopers.) The song is "Gotta Do" by Quentin Harris, which is available for download at Amazon. (I drive through that tunnel everyday.)

Here's more Philo Hagen at Burning Man. The hoop moves so fast, it's hard to believe it's not CGI:
