Passing obsession

When I was a high school cheerleader (Mustang Born!), we used to do Tae Bo to stay fit. I know, I know, we probably should have been running, or lifting weights, or something, but instead we adhered to the gospel of Billy Blanks. His 15 minutes of fame are up, but there's a new star in the family: his son, Billy Blanks Jr.

Cardioke, above, came out about a year ago, I think? And it is a gem. He is magical to watch. His movements are like a snake. Any how, because I Officially Have Nothing Better To Do With My Time, I have created a single-serving Tumblr on the wonder that is Billy Blanks Jr. and his franchise of workout videos. Expect lots of screen grabs, and I'll throw some animated GIFs in there if I'm ambitious. Remember to breathe -- and get ready to sing!
