Jacob gives amazing discourses!!! :)

I love this book. Beyond what words can describe. 

But here are the gems that I found recently!!

Please go read 2 Nephi Chapter 9.

It is fantastic!!! In it, Nephi is recording one of Jacob's discourses on the Atonement, and It is absolutely beautiful!

Can I make a suggestion? Read this chapter out loud. It makes it very clear and easy to understand when you do that, and you feel the Spirit so strongly! At least that is how it is for me! :)

Here is one of my favorite verses in this chapter:

"O, my beloved brethren, turn away from your sins; shake off the chains of him that would bind you fast; come unto that God who is the rock of your salvation." 2 Nephi 9:45

When I read this out loud, the Spirit flooded me so strongly! I really want all of you to feel this way when you read the Book of Mormon, because it is seriously the best feeling in the World!!!!!

I love you guys, and I love the Book of Mormon, and I love Jesus Christ for what he has done for all of us! Let's makes sure we don't let his sacrifice do to waste! :)

Have an awesome day!

Red Bull BC One 2011!!


39 more days!!

Man, I can't tell you guys how excited I am to find out who will be the new world champion in breakdancing this year!!

For those of you that don't know, The Red Bull BC One Competition is held every year in a different country each time. The top 16 Breakdancers in the world come together to battle it out for the top spot!

How cool is that?? :D

These dancers come from all around the world! You name it! Ukraine, South Korea, Russia, U.S.A., Brazil, Venezuala, France, etc. Dancers that have trained for years, and now they are competing to become the top guy in Breakdancing.

Here are the World Champions so far:

2004 in Biel, Switzerland: Omar - U.S.A. (Not one of my favorites, but this is historic since it was the first competition.)

2005 in Berlin, Germany: Lilou - France (Lilou is one of my favorites!! He has such a great feel for the music, a unique dance style, and he is really cool to watch!)

2006 in Sao Paulo, Brazil: Hong 10 - South Korea (Another one of my all time favorites! Koreans are such good dancers! I would even say they are probably to best in the world, but Hong 10 was one of my first favorites that I ever watched, and we has a great unique style too!)

2007 in Johannesburg, South Africa: Ronnie - U.S.A (Ronnie is very talented and a pretty great dancer! I am not a huge fan of some of his style, but he is a good dancer overall!)

2008 in Paris, France: Wing - South Korea (He has one of the most unique styles I have ever seen, I don't think anyone else in the world has the same style as him! Great dancer!)

2009 in New York, U.S.A.: Lilou - France (The only Bboy to ever win twice in the World Champoinship!! I told you he was awesome! I have great respect for his dance style!)

2010 in Tokyo, Japan: Nequin - Brazil



He may look a little intense, but he really is a nice guy! :)

Not only do I love him because he is Brazilian, but he has such an awesome style of dance, and he doesn't smoke! His brother died from drugs, so he lets people know that he won't do that stuff, and that it would compromise his dancing!

So he is really awesome, and he will be returning to Red Bull to defend his title this year, so I am excited to see him in action! :)

Anyway, I will give you the line-up for this year, and then I will stop rambling. :)

Here goes:

1. El NiƱo - U.S.A.
2. Flying Buddha - Russia
3. Hong 10 - South Korea
4. Lagaet - Portugal
5. Lil G - Venezuala
6. Morris - U.S.A
7. Mounir - France
8. Neguin - Brazil
9. Niek - Netherlands
10. Roxrite - U.S.A.
11. Salo - Venezuala
12. SoSo - France
13. Taisuke - Japan
14. Vero - South Korea
15. Yan The Shrimp - Russia
16. 3T - Vietnam

So there you have it guys! These are some of the top Breakers in the world, and I am really excited to see who our new champion is! :)

Hope you didn't get bored with that post! :P I will do another one soon talking about some of my favorite top Breakdancers, but for now, I have to run!

Love you guys!

Brazilian Jedi's Part 2 :)

Hey Guys! As promised, I am posting another one of our very nerdy videos for you to enjoy!

I really like the special effects in this one a lot more, because we don't only have lightsabers and stuff, ya know?

Andrew is our lovely camera guy that gets killed in the end, and I hope you enjoy this one!

Watch until after the credits for some more cool special effects we were developing. ;)



So there you have it! Have a great day guys! :)

Yeah I was a Jedi in Brazil. No Big Deal.

Title pretty much explains this one.

My friends and I were really into animating and action, so why not put those together?

Yup, you guessed it... Lightsaber fight!! :)

Enjoy. I will post another one soon!



Anyway, I look super young. But hope you enjoy that! I will post another one of my favorites that we did probably tomorrow.

This one by the way has like 1,478 views on youtube, so we are pretty famous. ;)

Love you guys!

This might describe my party/break-dance life. I don't know, or it is just a cool song. :)



Anyway, you guys have fun today! :)

New contacts, Rory, and Stuff.

October this month has been pretty great! And there is still a ton more to do!

Today I got new contacts that feel great! I am pretty sure anyone that puts in brand new contacts know the amazing feeling I am experiencing right now. :)

Also, if I had to be any fictional character in the world, I would probably choose. . .

Rory Williams!






Anyway, Rory is pretty fantastic! He would definitely be the person I would be if I had to be a fictional person....

Yeah. :)

And I love my mom. She is awesome everyday, and I don't know where I would be without her. :)

Love you guys!

Romain Dupouy, A Freakin' Awesome Guy :)

Quite simply, Romain, I love you.

This is a tribute to one of my dear friends Romain.

If you know him, you love him. I haven't heard a single bad word against this guy, and I would knock down anyone if I did hear a single bad word against this guy.

I am so glad that Romain was able to stay with us longer than he intended in the first place! Even though I see him sporadically, every moment that I am with him is pure awesomeness! I am super jealous of Josh Brewer and others who see him a lot more than me!

I know that he has touched others lives besides mine.

These are just a few of Romain's many fans. :)

Romain, I will miss you, and I hope our paths will cross again one day. I will always remember the day you walked in with Josh Brewer to our humble Super Smash Brothers party when I met you for the first time. :)

Even though it is sad to say goodbye, I have a feeling we will see each other again! ;) You rock Romain, and I think everyone will back me up when I say you have influenced all of our lives! :)

I love you man!
Love Matt or Cakes, you decide ;)

Life, Thoughts, Maybe Snacks. . .

Ok, So no snacks, but that would be cool, right?

Life is pretty good right now. I get to go Break Dance tonight at BYU, Conference was fantastic, and sleep is my best friend.

Break Dancing is one of my creative outlets. I have a ton of energy, so why not put it into something as cool as dance? I know this video below is not Break Dancing, but it is a form of Hip-Hop called Tutting(there are variations like Finger Tutting, and digits, which he does both of). But yeah, it is super cool so check it out!



Wasn't that legit? I think so :)

Going onto Conference.

WOW!

It was so great! I think you would agree with me that it was awesome. Unless you don't like conference. . . which you should. ;)

There were so many great speakers, but I want to share the quote by Elder Holland that I have already shared on facebook, so bear with me :)

"Brethren ... I am looking tonight for men young and old who care enough about this battle between good and evil to sign on and speak up!"
-Elder Holland in Priesthood Session

I loved being able to attend Priesthood Session up in Salt Lake, and I absolutely love this quote Elder Holland gave!

I don't know about you, but I am signing up literally and figuratively! I get to put my mission papers in December 27th, and I am super excited to find out where I have the privilege of serving the Lord for two years!

And onto sleep. I am sorry I don't utilize it as much as I should, because it seriously is fantastic. I absolutely love sleep. :)

So yeah, that is me right now. And I am super excited for the Provo Tabernacle Temple. :) I won't put a picture up since you have all probably seen it a billion times, but it is exciting!

Have an awesome day guys! :)
Love Matt or Cakes, you decide!
