Enter The Librarian!


Welcome to World’s Strongest Librarian! The video below will probably tell you whether you should stick around for a while or run for the hills.

If that didn’t drive you away, please spend some time poking around the site. There’s a lot of great stuff here, and it will be growing every day. And a big welcome to the librarians, most of whom have probably not spent much time with Russian kettlebells.

    Great video! I enjoyed watching it quite a bit; got a good chuckle.

    Thanks Blaine. It may interest you to know that this video was rejected by an upload service for “hateful content” and “hate speech.” I was so stunned I couldn’t even figure out how to be annoyed. Guess it’s off to sensivity training for me!

    Good video. I especially enjoyed the bit where you ripped the phone book in half. Janette’s voice work was amazing too!

    You had me at “100 swings, $1.00 off.” Very creative.

  • Josh Hanagarne April 14, 2009, 12:46 pm

    Is it a fair price, Ann? Should it be more swings, more money?:)

    You are awesome, Mr. Josh!! Please don’t hurt us with the phone book … we won’t be any trouble, we promise!! Thank you for all you do; you’re a ROCKIN’ librarian! 🙂

      Hey guy! Thanks! Don’t worry, you’re all much more polite than that phonebook was. Looking forward to seeing you soon. I want to see your new bass, Hunter.

    Your video is rather “buff” and Linda and I enjoyed it immensely, quite
    entertaining. I guess in order to be in the in crowd I need to obtain a
    weight bell to lift, etc.

    We had a great time at Goblin Valley. It hailed and blew and rained and
    we had a nice day Saturday, we toured the Park, and several times we
    had eleven people in our trailer (heated) , etc. Linda and Jeff rode slot
    canyon twice 10 miles each time. We ate alot of Dutch Oven Food
    and great meals, also flew the f-16 kite ( hard to bring down) and
    Sunday morning had a Easter program sponsored by Kim Galoway
    and all toll we drove the truch and trailer about 500 miles at 10-12 mpg.

    I recently discovered your blog and I’m loving it. Wicked, dry sense of humor, great book recommendations, and lots of smart ideas and motivation. I’m hooked. So, of course I started checking out your videos (yes, the review of Twilight is my favorite thus far) – but I’m finding the volume is really variable from video to video. This one in particular is mostly inaudible on my laptop, but the Twilight review video was just fine. Any way you can tweak your settings to help amp up the audio? Thanks and great job!

      Victoria, thanks! This video was the first one. First experiment with camcorder, youtube, everything. I wasn’t that happy with the quality. So far, all of the videos I’ve done with the webcam–like Twilight–are better.

      I’m not really techy. If you can give me any pointers, I’d be all ears.

      Thanks for dropping by! It’s looks like you’re doing some very cool things over at Smaller Living.

    I had never seen this before. “Awesome” doesn’t even begin to describe it! I do handstand push-ups over lunch, and dips between my two client chairs. Get me a pull-up bar and some kettle bells in here, and it’s game over. Hi-yah!!!
