Seven very tiny words, that individually mean nothing. But for m they hold more meaning that I could ever try and explain. For the past 2 years

they have been my own personal mantra, instilling inspiration, motivation and hope for me throughout my journey to increase my overall health.

Just seven words that to this day still amaze me.

The past few weeks have seen a slew of health problems arise for me: illness, sleep deprivation, stress, depression, overall exhaustion, digestive sadness, and breathing issues just to name a few… But they never caused me to stray from my goals and mission.

In the past two years I have actually managed to reduce my pant size by over 12 inches and while I remain happy with loss, I am always seeking ways to lose more.

Recently I decided to switch up the routine a little bit and starting working with a medicine ball (an intense workout to this day), and while it has been an amazing tool, it lacks the ability to isolate individual body parts (at least for me, if you know efficient methods of doing so, I congratulate you, and maybe we can discuss this together). So I made the decision to acquire a kettlebell.

Mind you, I am not looking for bulky muscle, but to tone and gain a certain leanness to my body.

Weighing in at only eight pounds, I was nervous that it would be too light for me to effectively use. I mean I have never been a power lifter of any sort, and I have never wanted to, but that doesn’t mean I do not have considerable strength (you can ask any of the members of Fisch Fail, INC about that).

Well my friends, I can say that today was the first day that I have actually used the kettlebell and all I can say is: fuck, what a workout!

Within ten minutes of starting today’s workout my heart rate was up, my muscles were well warmed, my lungs were fighting to draw more oxygen, and I was dripping sweat.

By far one of the most intense sessions I have had in a long time (which could be caused by the workout itself or the aforementioned string of recent health issues). After I was done, I could do nothing but sit on the floor soaked in sweat, gasping for air, and genuinely feeling good.

And that was when I realized something important. It is not often that I receive a full body workout of this caliber. Generally when I go to the gym, I focus on one thing specifically (cardio, fat burn, or weight lifting). And although I hit all major groups at the gym, I focus on one of them.

In this single workout, I was unable to focus on only one aspect. It truly was amazing.

And when the routine was nearing the end and my muscles were growing tense and tight with strain and I was growing too tired to continue on, I turned to music and listened to the one song that has yet to fail me:

I still find it amazing that seven simple words “One Small Step at a Time, Bro” could hold such as an important personal message on hope and inspiration.

What helps you achieve your goals when everything else has failed? Seriously, I (at the very least) want to know.

Well then, so much for the promise of “I will not be following the trend of making a more personal post… I’m just not that guy.” And to think, that promise lasted a mere ten hours… Well, shit happens.

Hey guys, it’s me, fischfail. I bet you never thought I would return, didn’t you. Don’t fear though, it takes a lot to keep me down and out,

although it has been getting easier to do so.

You will have to forgive me for not posting recently, between the veritable laundry list of illnesses, stress due to school and work, and a sudden onset of depression, I haven’t had much will to do very much. And while I will spare you all from most of that, I will share the following with you.

Today, I woke up with severe neck pain that prevents me from turning my head without excruciating pain shooting throughout my body, which is also causing my back to tighten back up, and not to even mention my teeth…

gross teeth

Obviously, not my real mouth.

But enough of the sad stuff surrounding my life.

Although the story behind this post is a little saddening as well, but for other reasons… I’ve been gone for a while; this is a clearly known fact (my last real post being made March 29, 2012). But I had a plan, a glorious and triumphant return: a plan that would make Fisch Fail, INC amazing, once more.

Sadly though, that plan was dashed away by the sudden and somewhat concerning disappearance of someone who has had very little mention here: StarStorm.

It would have been a post surrounding one of the two things authors of Fisch Fail, INC can actually admit to enjoying: video games and attractive women. This particular story would have focused on gaming and one very amazing online interaction that I personally encountered.

However, since that is likely to have gone out the door I am here to make this post, which will actually be combining a couple of posts that I had planned on making.

But now that I am done with the second sad bit of this post, it is time to move on to fun! Most of the following does not need further explanation… Or maybe they do, I am not really sure.

I forgot to do homework, because I am a huge slacker.

How did they know?

I thought you was corn.

…I don’t even know…

A muppet hanging out a window

Uhhhhhh, what is his name?

Actually, I saw this while driving to school. Unfortunately that was the only picture that ErinLovesTheWeb was able to snap off before the vehicle disappeared into a nearby suburb. Either way, let us continue.

Pants onfire

That is kinda how Fisch Fail, INC. is.

Admit, you’ve been there…

Who hasn’t wanted to beat the fuck out of the annoying kid next to them at the LAN party?

So would I… I think

I wonder how many takes that took?

Dubstep, kinda like that

Yup, exactly as I pictured it.

This still manages to creep me out… Please make it stop.

Violent force of show

Get the fuck out of my way.

It's the Fett, I promise

This picture is not only awesome, but will piss Drezirale off.

And now for Fisch Fail, INC’s first ever post including actual nudity…

But wait, there’s more… That is NSFW


It’s been a good run so far with FFI, and although we have a few slow-downs recently, we’re still growing every day.

If you are a reader of one little blog, casual or otherwise, you most likely won’t understand the title of this entry, and that’s a-ok. If you’re an author, most likely you won’t either, but you should and shame on you.

This date, August 13 2011, was when over one-thousand collective brains got to see the beauty that is Fisch Fail Inc. It was also the day that I noticed our blog was becoming something of a big deal. Honestly until that point I mostly blogged for no one, except for maybe myself and Mr. Fail, but afterward I began doing it for a lil ones… I mean the readers.

Seriously though; you guys have gotten us to new heights, and for that I am thankful.

A lot of crap has gone down recently (more on that later) so the blog has gotten somewhat neglected as of late, but hopefully that will change and more posts will be on their way.

Here’s to getting 1000000 views before the end of the year!

Fisch Fail, INC, is still a baby, still growing, still something…infant

If we were a human baby, we would be learning to speak, and maybe eat something that didn’t have the consistency of baby food. But fuck, we’ve already moved on to tacos and alcohol… Says something about us!

Anyway, yesterday we hit a random milestone… 20,000 views (and damnit, I was going to make sure I got to make this announcement!).

So, it took us nearly a year and a half to get our first 10,000… It took us 6 months, to get our second.

Lets try and beat that record (for us) even quicker.

Tell everyone about FFI, let’s do it!

 

 

 

My sea legs be dying…

I’m sure you all remember it, I made quite a big deal about it. But then I remembered this.  I’ll just leave it here for you.

Its true

Real life story of Fisch Fail


so, at the risk of making all you fuckers jelly, and the fact that I actually miss you bastards (the Fisch Fail, INC family may be one of the best things to ever happen to me), I decided to bring you all on this journey with me. Even if it is only virtually.
But wait, there’s more


So, my first day of work is now over, and its been a long day. So let me get down to it.

I wake up this morning, 6am sharp (completely accidental), and walk outside for a smoke. I realize it is still quite cool, and I want to be awake, and start my day correctly. So after the smoke, I walk inside, fix myself breakfast (coffee, banana, cashews, granola, and yogurt), eat, and then change. It is now around 630am. I decide the perfect way to start this day is…

Go for a fucking swim. It was cold as hell, but totally worth it (so much so, I may do it again tomorrow). After my swim, I decide to work out a little. basic stuff really, nothing hard (besides ErinLoveTheWeb was asleep and I didn’t want to wake her). After a little while, I start to nod back off and decide to take a nap (due to shitty sleeping on my behalf as well). When I reawaken, I walk outside, and come back inside, blinded. The sun was up, and that fucker was bright (our apartment is underground, and our bedroom is in the back of the place, it’s always cool and dark back there…) I return inside until my eyes adjust a little better. That’s when I realized this is how I get to wake up everyday.

Now, I’m going to share it with you. Don’t mind the pictures, I was still half asleep when I took them, my joints weren’t wanting to function properly, and I was still partially asleep. Also, these pictures don’t do the real thing justice…

View in the morning.

This pictures do not do justice to that world that I saw this morning...

Another Morning View

Again, no justice...

Morning View

A final picture for now.

And then I got to work for the day. Now, I won’t go into details regarding that (legally, I am not allowed). So we fast forward. It is now around 5pm, and I am standing on a dock, drinking a beer and smoking a cigarette, kinda reveling in the day. I walk back inside and do an intense workout (ErinLovesTheWeb was gone at this point), afterwards I went shopping, and bought some random ass shit. It was good.

On a side note, I spoke to the mystery writer today, and they are currently having some computer issues, and will be posting ASAP. Also, the beloved Breeish, contacted me about writing (an article) for Fisch Fail, INC. however, I was unavailable at that time, and the article was published on her own blog instead (http://breeish.wordpress.com/), however I may still try to get it posted here, it is amazing. It looks like Fisch Fail, INC has another new author Ech13. He hasn’t started yet, but I’m sure he will soon enough, so make sure you all look out for that. It also appears that the (in)famous Eldwardo will be dropping in from time to time as a guest author. So that will also be fun.

On another unrelated side note, we are still waiting logo submissions from all of you.

On a final side note, I have started dieting and strength training again. This means that when I come back I should be able to kick Luz’s  ass, more painfully. Should be fun.

I think that is it for me and this post. I may do another short one a little later on (before bed), but who knows.


This is a poast… which is a post… about toast.

A toast post is a poast… most would boast that a toast post should coast more upon it’s host: me. Perhaps I’ve become engrossed, or maybe I’m lost (did you pronounce it low-st? because I did…)?

Either way… where do you toast your toast?

Nowhere… because you toast bread, dumb fuck…

Maybe I shouldn’t annoy the audience? Maybe I should get back to work? Maybe fuck you? Maybe later.

Honestly this is what you get when you lack sleep, work too hard on trivial crap, and have a diet mostly containing (really good) jerky and Mountain Dew… it’s like I’m a programmer…

but at least I get more sun…


So, it’s officially the one year anniversary of Fish Fail, INC. What can we do to mark this momentous occasion? Talk about what we always talk about… That’s right POOP!

Now this was mentioned a while back when I spoke of my first pooping experience. There really isn’t much to this story but it’s funny all the same.

When I was younger and living at my mom’s I had to poop and bad. This was a make or break kind of situation. I ran up the stairs, and past my mom entertaining guests in the kitchen. I run to the bathroom. My sister was in it at the time and I REALLY had to go.

So I run further down the hall to my mom’s bathroom. Here is where it gets funny. My mom has a small counter-top in front of the toilet. I forget this as I pull my pants down with urgency and sit down on the toilet with all the ferocity of a Creeper about to explode.

WHAM! I bang my head on the counter-top. Ignoring this I continue about my business, until I see blood on the floor. That’s right, I split my head open while pooping. I didn’t know if I should wipe my head or my ass. Eventually, after I’m done I go back to tell my mother what happened. She took me to the hospital, where I got eleven stitches.

Oh, and by the way… Your favourite Internet Sensation has returned!

 


We here at FF IT’S OUR EFFING BIRTHDAY! We are in need of celerecreajubilation! What should we do to enjoy this wondrous week? You… yeah YOU… let us know! …or I’ll stab you in the face w/ a soldiering iron… seriously…

By the way… Luz is BACK bitches!

 


Fisch Fail, INC is officially a year old now. Celebrate with us! Buy us stuff! Or just send us some donations so we can continue to do what we do…  I’ve got some plans for you all. Including a few tonight.


So, I again want to apologise for a lack of posts once again.

But the last few weeks have been incredibly rough for me.  I’ve had way too much on my mind that was causing a heavy burden on my heart.  I haven’t been able to sleep. I haven’t been able to eat (very well), for multiple reasons.  In short, I’ve been just this side of a train wreck.  I’ve been a monster to be around.  But the monsters inside my head were even scarier.  It is something I could just not cope with, so I ignored it.

I cannot remember if I had mentioned that I am unemployed, which has added to my depression, but I think I am getting better.  And this will hopefully be a bit of something like closure for me.  Or something.

Lately though, I’ve had trouble thinking clearly.  Hell, more so, I’ve had trouble thinking at all and have been trying to fill my time with mindless activities, while mentally berating myself.

I lost another portion of tooth.

I almost gave up the will to live.  I don’t mean that I considered suicide, but I somehow managed to loose the entire spark that made me.  This is it for now.

I promise you there will be a real post tonight.

 

On a slightly unrelated note, Luz, started a post 10 days ago, he should do something with it.


This is a public pat on the back to Fisch Fail Inc. for it’s 100th comment! Take it in, boys and girls, we’re going for a lot more, so keep reading and we’ll keep posting.

For right now, though, I will be busy watching my favorite show, so deal with it.

Hooray!


The days are becoming shorter and the winds bring about a familiar chill. While the work piles up upon my desk and the post-its will blanket my monitor, I look over both my blogs, one newly blooming and the other well established by a more creative mind than my own. School is certainly taking it’s toll, and work is not very helpful as well.

No more gloom and doom, now for a little more optimism. *deep breath* I FINALLY GOT MY BOOK! Okay… I needed that. Namely Tim Akers’ The Horns of Ruin, a sword/sorcery and steampunk novel that I’m already ten pages into. I ordered it sometime in June and have been awaiting it’s arrival ever since, with several delays. When I am finished be sure to check out my other blog with a review.

Never being a sci-fi fan personally, I never thought I would have been into steampunk. Dictionary.com defines steampunk as “a genre of science fiction set in Victorian times when steam was the main source of machine power”. Gold and bronze cogwork with gauges, dials and toggles adorning airships and other scientific wonders. Alright, that’s the end of that little essay.

Next off, my exercise regimen is still going strong, despite all of the McRib commercials popping up everywhere. Also was thinking about possibly getting a gym membership eventually, but for now I’m just glad to get off my ass proactively.

Speaking of being active, I’ve decided to take 15 credit hours for the winter semester, which is the most I’ve ever attempted. All of this is in accordance to Project Fix My Effing Life, and it’s gonna be a hard road I must travel.

Eventually I will also be working harder on both blogs, but until then I will be finishing off this bottle of Bailey’s (weird, huh?) and probably tying up some paperage.

Cooking

Recently I discovered I have a slight passion for cooking.  But I have a genuine passion for baking.  So much so, that ErinLovesTheWeb and I would like to take a couple of baking classes.  This doesn’t mean either of us want this as a career, but it is fun to do on the side.  This combined with th fact we work really well together and are quite good at it, makes it even more enjoyable.

But wait, there’s more
