What, we aren’t AP photogs?

Most blogs are crap. You know this, I know this. So when you come across a brilliant one, ya just gotta share, right? That’s what friends do for each other.

The blog Not the AP… is an outlet for us to “…become the paparazzi of the common man…to shed a necessary light on the frauds that walk among us.” I tried for several minutes to describe exactly what is going on there and can’t do it justice. So just click through a few of their posts and appreciate the pure genius of it all.

So why am I pimping some site out of the seemingly clear blue sky? Because of this post:

Not gym clothes…

Who are you, Fellow Bloggers at Not the AP…? Can we be friends? The recent lapse in your posts hurts my heart – please start posting again!

UPDATE: Not the AP… is back! Yay! Let’s get my new friend some pictures!

UPDATE #2: The site has been taken down permanently. 😦


THE greatest jogging in jeans “footage” in existence.

If this guy looks familiar, it is because I featured him before. So now we know that Gabe (of BHGP, Iowa Hawkeyes fan fame) ran at least two Colfax Marathons in aviator sunglasses, knee socks, and those infamous jorts…all while chugging a beer.

Seriously, People, how awesome is that animated gif?

Gabe, if I wasn’t already married AND you weren’t drinking a Keystone (bleh), you would have a marriage proposal from me TODAY.

JoggingJeans.com and LifeIsSavage.com sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G…

My husband is VERY lucky that I didn’t know about the author of lifeissavage.com before I married him because one could argue that Mr. LifeIsSavage is my soul mate. Long before JoggingJeans.com was a thought, Mr. LifeIsSavage was posting pictures that people sent to him of people lifting weights IN JEANS. He calls them “jean pant criminals” [damn, I gotta come up with a cool term] and writes:

“…their blatant disregard for the unwritten laws of conduct cannot be tolerated any longer and MUST be brought to attention. So without further ado i am declaring a uprising against the jean pant criminals out there…Please submit further evidence of this behaviour in your gym and i will gladly let the world know.”

Seriously, SO MUCH love. Here is a bit of the deliciousness I found on his site (click the picture to see the specific post):





I’m still reeling in the fact that I am not the only one that enjoys people inappropriately wearing jeans enough to post pictures of them on a blog. I’m also a bit surprised that I haven’t found his blog until now or that no one has sent me a link to it. Regardless, go visit his site, follow him on Twitter, see what info you can collect about him in case my husband dies or leaves me, and tell him how much you love his work.

UPDATE: OMG. I SWEAR to you that, when I wrote the post, I had no idea that the author of lifeissavage.com is THIS guy:

Yowza. Fate LOVES me if Dylan Savage is my soul mate.

Crowded gyms in January

Before I get to today’s picture, I gotta share that I got an award. JoggingJeans.com made a “Top 100 Running Blogs of 2012” list! #66!

The award is just as much yours as it is mine. Because it is you, the people running races, watching races, in the gyms, and looking out your kitchen windows, that are taking the photos and sending them to me. YOU do all the work. YOU are the reason this ridiculousness is possible. I just sit here, get your emails and pictures, and laugh, save, shake my head, click, click, click, smile, publish. So I thank you and love you all!

Congrats on YOUR award, My Friends!

On to today’s picture. More people in the gym in January = more opportunities for pictures of people working out in jeans. I just buttered you up, so now GET TO WORK taking pictures, People.
