Thanks a Million!!

Well it’s been over a year now since we created a little video to accompany our article about American Football vs Rugby and we are pleased to say that it has attracted over 1 million views!! Thank you folks! We especially enjoy all the comments and arguments induced by the video.

As we’re in the thick of the Rugby World Cup and the 2015-2016 NFL season, now is the perfect time to watch the video again and join the debate about which of these two sports is the more Yoggish…

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty

Out in cinemas now is Ben Stiller’s latest feature The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty. We normally review films that possess an element of the YOG factor, and this gem is coated with it.

Walter Mitty (Stiller) works in the sterile corporate HQ of LIFE magazine managing the negative assets department. Trouble begins in his boring yet tranquil life when he can’t find the negative intended for the final cover ever of TIME magazine.

Mitty’s wild imagination causes him to daydream often, transforming him into the YOG he yearns to be, normally in an effort to win the heart of his coworker Cheryl (Kristen Wiig).

Yet the situation of the missing negative leads Walter to come out of his shell and embark on a yoggish pursuit to track down the creator of the image, and the ultimate YOG, Sean O’Connell (Sean Penn).

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty Soundtrack

The film is accompanied by an endearing soundtrack which includes Of Monsters and Men, a David Bowie classic, and the stylings of intoxicating guitar plucker José Gonzalez to name a few.

With many exciting moments set against some wonderful scenery, The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty  is a great metaphor for what it means to bravely break free of our self imposed limitations. This is what living life to the fullest is all about, something we at the YOG blog will keep reminding of.

Joe Cross in YOG mode

Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead

This is definitely one of our favorite YOGumentaries, demonstrating health transformations of epic proportions, using the simple concept of juicing fruit and veg.

The film follows Aussie banker Joe Cross as he travels across America on a 60 day juice fast, in an effort to regain his own health, while educating others on the benefits of juicing.

Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead CoverThe weight loss results and other health benefits featured in this documentary are quite astonishing. We of the YOG blog are huge advocates of juicing and you’ll see plenty more on the topic, including reviews of the best Juicers out there in future posts.

Stay tuned – the YOGs are coming in 2014 to bring you laughs and inspiration from Los Angeles, arguably the YOG capital of the world…
