Why The Today Show Is Driving Me Crazy This Morning. Out Dated Yogurt / Sweetener Health Information!

yogurt children stonyfield farm 01 Why The Today Show Is Driving Me Crazy This Morning.  Out Dated Yogurt / Sweetener Health Information! Photographer: Ben McLeod (cc)

I find myself often disappointed by the Today Show health updates. This morning was particularly frustrating. Watch the clip and then read my comments. It’s not that what Joy Bauer is saying is WRONG per se, it’s just that the information is not very fresh, new/current and there is so much research out there showing that most of what she is saying is not necessarily right anymore. For many reasons and factors that play a role in today’s farming and processing.

You’ll see what I mean…just keep reading…

1st, Joy believes yogurt to be the BEST source of calcium, “HANDS DOWN”. I don’t believe yogurt is the best source of calcium {a harvard health study also demonstrates this}. It might be the easiest to actually consume {because most kid and adults don’t like the taste of say, spinach} but because it’s DAIRY it’s not necessarily the BEST absorbed by the body, nor is it DIGESTED properly, which is HANDS DOWN the key to absorption and utilization of minerals and vitamins.

Is Smoking Hot Again? Muse And Lindsay Lohan Seem To Think So!

lindsay loahan nude smoking muse 01 Is Smoking Hot Again? Muse And Lindsay Lohan Seem To Think So!

Has the world been dropped on it’s collective head? I mean every time I open a magazine, watch a tv show, listen to a song or go out to see a flick, there are people giving me the sexy eyes while sucking on a death stick. Okay, I don’t see the sexy eyes in songs, but its in the lyrics non stop. What gives? I thought the idea of cigs equals sexy died back in the early 90’s. Is it cool all over again to destroy your face, voice, stink and oh yeah kill yourself in a not so pretty way? The world really does have a short memory. What do you think?

What got me going today is this video (sex selling brand ad) featuring the drug addicted actress Lindsay Lohan sucking down cig after cig in her chain smoking way. All while rolling around in bed with not one but two other waifs models all puffing away. If that wasn’t bad enough, they also seem to be use the smoke as some kind of sex toy… cough cough.. vomit… is what went through my head. Not oh yeah.. sexy.

What I did like about the video was the shooting, lighting, the music and yes bodies on top of bodies.. but come on… stop making me gag on all the cigs, PLEASE!

Speak up.. what gives, are all the under 30 pretty people really into smoking?

Are You One Of The G / INFLUENCERS In Your World?

This trailer for the documentary Influencers caught my eye this morning and sent my brain racing. Why you ask? Well, to be frank, I am in the middle of re-thinking G Living in the Post Green Special Status World. Yes, green as a special issue is dead in my opinion. I still believe the world will keep moving towards a “G” lifestyle, but the original movements concept of just adding the word Green, or Organic to your products name or onto your website some how made it exciting… is oh so dead my friends. Dead Dead Dead! Don’t be grim, that is a good thing. It had to happen. You are ask why again aren’t you? Because it’s been over used, over hyped and under delivered. Yelling global warming from the roof tops and then not demanding real change is an issue.

Yes, labeling everything green and allowing anyone with a heart beat to just claim to be some kind of green expert and oh the practice of over hyping everything as the next best thing since who knows what, is dull and very draining. Also, what about “green” product concepts which never make it to market or way under deliver? Yeah, kills the “I am so excited” feelings about going green. My favorite is hyping companies as “Fashion Brands” when in reality, they are no more than a couple of people who happen to print some eco slogans and designs on to pre-made organic T-Shirts. Not exactly high fashion or any different than the 100,000 other T-Shirt printers out there. They just happen to be using “Green” keywords.

The “Green” Movement as it was launched is Oh So DEAD, DEAD, DEAD, Don’t be grim, thats a good thing

I think I see the green movement different than most. I have from the beginning of this wave. I have always thought, generically labeling everything “Green”, “Eco” and so on was a bad way to go. By painting everything with the same label, guaranties nothing will stand out. It’s like the PC market vs Apple. If you have a PC, who cares what brand it is. Everyone assumes its a cheaply made computer with little thought put into the design or the materials used to build it. But Apple computer stayed away from that crowd and built a completely different type of product. In the end everyone, even PC people now know, Apple cares about the design, the experience and the materials used to create the products. Apple products are not PC’s. Everyone knows the difference, if they have used one or not. Even down to the ads… Apple stood alone and stayed unique. And now, Apple, not PC maker Number 1, or PC Maker Number 2 and so on, stands alone influencing how the entire world feels about computers, phones, music and anything with a chip in it.

This is what I hope G Living will achieve in the long run. Become a brand which means so much more than just “Green”. A brand people will instantly get and just naturally want to integrate into their lives. Someday everyone will want to live a little “G”! Right? Smile and just shake your head. And now go out there and be a “G” influencer yourself. Go set the trends that will pull in the 6 billion non “G” living knuckle dragging Flesh Monkies out there. We can only do this together… believe me, alone, we don’t stand a chance.

This documentary follows not the Trend Setting Green Brands but all the trendsetters, from music, fashion, politics and design. Checkout their official facebook page.

The Perfect Fashion Accessory, A Bike

fashionable biker newyorkcity 03 The Perfect Fashion Accessory, A Bike Photographer: The Sartorialist

I think the key to this thing we call G Living is to just dive right in. Open up your eyes, let in all the beauty around you. It’s there waiting to be re-discovered, waiting to be seen a new again. And nothing for me brings in the joy of just being more than cutting through the air on the back of a bike.

I personally have two bikes, one electric, the A2B by Ultramotor and one carbon fiber road bike by Kestrel. I love them both equally but they perform two very different transportation task for me. The Kestrel is about being connected to the road, feeling every bump, feeling the power of your own body moving you down the road. It’s about being a powerful force, which is an amazing feeling, that is if you are not too concerned about how you might smell once the ride has come to an end.

This opens up a whole world of destinations and more importantly it enables you to dress for the occasion and not the ride.

Now the A2B electric bike is a whole other story. It’s about taking you for a ride. The bike is the powerful one. Your job is to hold on and enjoy the ride, There is no effort, no worries, and most importantly no sweating. This opens up a whole world of destinations and more importantly it enables you to dress for the occasion and not the ride.

G Living Room101 | The Method Soap Guys Think Dirty

Method Soap guys Eric Ryan and Adam Lowry on this episode of Room101

What is the first thing that pops into your head when you hear the word dirty? Sexy Hot? Madonna? Maybe you visualize old rich men with half naked 20 something girls. What ever popped into your dirty little mind, I bet it wasn’t soap. When the guys at Method (the modern green soap company) think about dirty, they think of nothing but soap and how to make it cleaner, greener and look sexier. Yes sexier, so some of your dirty thoughts where on the right track.

It is this type of clean sexy thinking, that enabled the Method Guys (Eric Ryan and Adam Lowry) to build the 7th fastest growing company in the United States, and the fastest growing company in California. The fastest growing company in California, the home of Apple Computer, and a valley full of tech geeks popping out the latest electronic gadgets that will power our homes and do all the thinking for us, beat out by a couple of guys making soap in their bathtub? Come on, really?! Well according to Adam, that is exactly correct and they fully intend to keep growing their business at record speed, while continuing the path to make their company and their products even greener.

method room101 01 G Living Room101 | The Method Soap Guys Think Dirty

Your standard floor cleaners, soaps, dusters, furniture polishes, glass cleaners and bleaches are packed full of chemicals that do more harm then good.

q question interview G Living Room101 | The Method Soap Guys Think DirtyWhy is running a green soap company a big deal?

a answer interview G Living Room101 | The Method Soap Guys Think DirtyWell, if you look at their competition, you quickly realize these guys are not only making a green company, they are revolutionizing how the standard cleaning products are made. Leaving behind the heavy chemical based products and the mindset that produced those products in the first place, and in the process, they are turning the entire industry on it’s head.

The Times They Are A-Changin, Can You Feel It? Sinead O’Conner Can

Sinead OConnor bi polar The Times They Are A Changin, Can You Feel It? Sinead OConner Can

I never post lyrics from a songs, but this morning I am feeling a bit overwhelmed by the realization that the world at large hasn’t got a clue. We go on with our lives, thinking everything will stay the same, when in fact there is no constant, everything is forever changing. Sometimes for the betterment of some, but almost always to the degeneration of most. This is especially true for the environment and non-humans among us. I think Bob Dylan’s said it best in his song “The Times They Are A-Changin”.

Oh when oh when will the winds of change finally sweep in the end of pain. Oh when oh when will humans put down their chains and pick up their brains. Oh when oh when, will G Living be more than just a passing phase. Oh when oh when will our children learn compassion and love are more than lyrics on a page.

The video below is of Sinead O’Connor singing Bob Dylans song on the Late Late show in Ireland earlier this year. The first thing you will notice, is that she is almost un-reconizable. She has filled out just a bit, looking very Irish I must say and the baldness is a thing of the past. Maybe Britney Spears ruined it for her. With that said, I love Sinead and if you don’t have her Throw Down Your Arms album, go get it right now. It is a beautiful album.

On the show she also talks about her life long depression, her children and her issues with the Catholic Church. You know, their policy of protecting child molesting catholic priest. Come on Sinead, whats wrong with that?

Expediting Recovery, Benefits Of A Balanced pH For Athletes

brendan brazier balance ph 03 Expediting Recovery, Benefits Of A Balanced pH For Athletes Photographer: V Blak (CC)

It amazes me how little attention the value of balanced pH has garnered from the mainstream medical world. Positive acid/alkaline balance is one of the most important factors in athletic performance. In my opinion, by disregarding this fact, sport supplement manufactures have significantly reduced the effectiveness of their products. In fact some of the energy bars currently on the market are the worst offenders. Processed for the sake of shelf life and convenience, and consequently denatured and acid forming, many energy bars are not much more than disguised junk food.

When acidic forming food is consumed, starting with digestion and continuing until elimination, it produces toxins that the body must deal with. Denatured foods are toxin producers and as a result have the greatest negative impact on pH balance within the body. Highly refined and processed, denatured foods are void of any usable nutrients, yet retain their caloric value the worst combination. Toxins in the body lead to premature aging through cell degeneration. Aside from food, most prescription drugs, artificial sweeteners and synthetic vitamin and mineral supplements are extremely acid forming.

Highly refined and processed, denatured foods are void of any usable nutrients, yet retain their caloric value the worst combination.

Athletes in peak training are the most affected by acidosis. Vigorous exercise creates stress in terms of muscle trauma cased by the workout. Physiologically speaking, hard exercise is the stressor but equally important is rest and recovery. The correct balance of theses two opposing elements is the recipe for growth. Already physically stressed, many athletes also must deal with various types of performance anxiety. An increased metabolism is yet another factor athletes are met with, further lowering pH. Furthermore, athletes require more food in general with an emphasis on protein to aid muscle recovery.

Dwell Features The Cordell Shipping Container House

numen container house dwell magazine 01 Dwell Features The Cordell Shipping Container HousePhotography by Dwell photograhers: Miyoko Ohtake, Jack Thompson

A while back we featured a small but well designed house in Houston Texas of all places, made out of mostly shipping containers. This version of a container house was different that most because it actually feels good. I don’t know what I mean by that other than a lot of container house are how do you say… hard, bare… build without design in mind. I mean the images of this place stand up to any well designed home and I am sure that is what the Dwell Magazine editors saw too and decided not only to do a story but to feature this special home on the cover (featured story on dwell.com).

Yes, the magazine issue came out back in 2009 but I just saw it. I know sad. But better let than never is what I say. So here it is, a little snippet of the dwell article, a few photos and yes a link back to our post On the Cordell Shipping Container House.

The Skinny Bitches Wants You To Look Hot

rory freedman 08 The Skinny Bitches Wants You To Look Hot

Man, I missed those skinny bitches. Especially G Living pal, Rory Freedman, who along with former model, Kim Barnouin, have crafted a very tasty niche for themselves with their (how shall I put it) “unique” voice. After the outrageous success of Skinny Bitch — which with help from the Skinniest Bitch of all climbed its way stiletto after stiletto up the New York Times bestseller list and refused to budge — the girls are back with their follow-up, Skinny Bitch in the Kitch.

The tone is set from their opening gambit: “What’s better than eating? (If you say ‘sex’ you’re either a liar or a pervert). The answer is: Nothing! There’s nothing better than eating!” The book then serves up 75+ healthy plant-based recipes including: the Big Ass Veggie Burrito, made with whole wheat tortillas and guaranteed not to give you one; and Chocolate Suicide Cake, which incorporates unsweetened apple sauce so as not to leave you depressed after eating it. (Preferably not whole thing.)

The recipes are broken up into handy sections with deliciously imaginative titles, everything from Bitchin’ Breakfasts to PMS (Pissy Mood Snacks), Down Home Cookin’ to Happy Endings (Desserts). While Rory and Kim consider their recipes to be pretty “normal”, you will need to stock up with some skinny bitch staples: Bragg’s Amino Acid (soy sans MSG), Coconut oil (as a substitute for Olive Oil) and Agave (nectar of the Gods).

So, take it from the SBs: stop cooking crap and start looking hot! It’s hard to argue with that.

SOKO Says Goodbye Paris and Is Looking For Love

soko in los angeles SOKO Says Goodbye Paris and Is Looking For Love

Everyone on the Planet knows I love Soko and if you don’t, well, you must have be dropped down a well for the last few years or something! So, now you know, I love SOKO, the hot oh so sexy, French singer/actress who’s lyrics tend to be raw and to the point. You know, from the heart basic stuff, with a bit of an edge. For example, in her first hit, “I’ll Kill Her” she basically sings about a bitch who stoled her man, and she is out to kill her. Yes, it warmed my heart too!

Now in the two video gems I just discovered, Soko, gives Paris (France) the big middle finger for laughing at people who love animals and tells a guy in a Bar, stick it in me quickly… it would be fun. But for some reason the guy just wants to talk… oh no this isn’t sounding like it’s going well.

Both videos are raw real time stuff shot in a graveyard in Sydney Australia. Enjoy Monkies and tell me how much you love her too and don’t even think about saying you don’t get her! :) Monkies you don’t want to even go there!

Second Video after the jump!
