Back in the Day... Part 2

Here is another clip from the Trujillo family home movie vault. This clip was taken at my grandmother's house. The baby in the clip is my cousin, Taylor. The video was filmed all the way back in 1994, way back in the day.

Back in the Day... Part 1

So my dad found a box of of old video tapes (yes, video tapes) and he's been digging through them ever since. He's found a lot of old baseball games and home movies, including this absolute gem.

Video: Tamale Time 2010

Nike Ad Shows Strong Perspective for People in Wheelchairs

The new "No Excuses" ad from Nike brings a refreshing perspective to people with disabilities. Featuring UW-Whitewater Wheelchair Basketball Player Matt Scott, the ad shows Scott from the chest-down, moving around the basketball court. Scott is reciting various excuses as he rolls around the court until he stops and says "yeah, and my feet hurt" as he rolls away. It is a very poignant clip with a great message. Check it out.

Zach Anner is My New Hero!

I saw Zach Anner's interview on Attack of the Show and he is awesome! Anner submitted a video to Oprah's My Own Show competition and already has more than 9 million votes! He has Cerebral Palsy, which he believes is the sexiest of the palsys,  but his sense of humor and great personality have made him an internet sensation. I highly recommend checking out his videos. They're excellent!
