Ramen Rantings... And the Butt-Pocket Brain.

Let me make a brief confession that might upset quite a few of you:

I hate ramen.

I absolutely despise ramen.

I haven't eaten ramen in nearly twenty-five years.

I live in fear of ramen's monosodium glutamate laden "flavor packet."

When I see hydrolyzed palm oil listed as a major component in a dehydrated soup, my lipid count skyrockets in sympathetic vibration.

And as someone who now lives the wheat-free/gluten-free lifestyle, I view a block of dried ramen noodles as being nothing more than Satan's Brillo Pad...  

A Brillo Pad for the intestines, that is.

Sooooooo...  What does all of this heavily-processed, fat-laden noodle animosity have to do with Nasty Clamps?  Or butt-pocket brains for that matter?

Well, bear with me for just a little bit...

All Your Friends Want Nasty Schwag!


How's it going?

Got a moment or two?

Then be sure to pop on over to the Nasty Clamps' site and check out the brand new, insanely stylish Nasty Clamps bracelets that've just come in.

Yeah...  They're mighty cool looking AND they're the sort of thing that all your friends will want.


Once your friends see just how well-made, mod, and fashionable these bracelets are –– well –– it's gonna' be a struggle, keeping all your buds from stealing the bangles straight off your wrists.

So head on over to the site.  Pick up a six-pack of Nasty bracelets (or two).  And start handing them out to all your friends.

And remember, Christmas/Chanukah/Kwanza/Festivus is only ten months away.

Stock up early.

Getting Nasty With The NikeFuel Band.

Soooooo...   I posted a new Nasty video up on YouTube the other day, and in it I take up about two minutes of your precious time to give a brief overview of the NikeFuel Band and its effectiveness as an exercise monitor.


What the heck does exercise have to do with Nasty Clamps?

Quite a lot, actually...

Despite my mild-mannered appearance and overall middle-agedness, I'm a huge fitness fanatic, and actually set-aside anywhere from one to two hours every day –– EVERY day –– where I'm either working out at the gym or doing some sort of outdoor-centric, cardio-intensive exercise.

And the payoff?

Well, I'm absolutely certain that my regular exercise pays off with at least an extra two or three hours of productivity each day –– productivity that I can use to market Nasty Clamps, sell Nasty Clamps, shoot Nasty videos, or simply keep up on life.  And at the same time (and this is just bragging on my part), I'm looking pretty decent for a guy who's just about to turn 50.

So, what about the NikeFuel Band?

Errrrrrrrhhhhh....  It's an interesting device.

And it's a flawed device...

And a bit overpriced, considering just how little it actually does...

Though it certainly points the way towards future technologies.

Here's the video.  And then a few comments below...

A Few Nasty Words...

Ironic, isn't it?

Here I am, posting a video which outlines the importance of writing down goals, aspirations, successes, and failures –– AND how writing down those goals, successes, and failures on a daily basis is sooooooo important –– and I haven't even written a blogpost in nearly seven months.

Yup…  Ironic.

In the meantime, please be sure to check out this brand new Nasty Clamps video.  

Unlike most of the Nasty videos that have been posted in the past, this one does not give any sort of product demo or show off some sort of unique lighting technique.  Instead, the video outlines the importance of daily writing (journaling, to be more specific) as a method for gaining insight, focus, and motivation in business.

Yeah…  Daily writing….

Jaw-dropping amounts of irony.

Anyways, it's actually quite a good video (or so I'd like to think), and certainly worth passing around on the ol' Twitters, Facebook, and other social media. 


Oh! For those who might be wondering (that is, after watching the video all the way through), the brand of journal/notebook I prefer is the Magma Brand –– specifically, the "Magma Design and Art Direction" sketchbook (Amazon link, btw).

Introducing... The Double-Headed Nasty.

What would you do if you had a double-headed clamping tool of some sort?

What could you do if you had a double-headed clamping tool?

Well, you could use that tool to hold a flashlight...

Or, perhaps, a small bounce card or reflector...

Maybe it could hold on to your script notes...

Or stabilize a large piece of foam core...

It could even hold a candy bar.

But where would you get such an incredible tool?

From Nasty Clamps, of course!

The Double Headed Nasty is now available from Nasty Clamps

The Nasty Hot Shoe Solution

I love to steal...

I love to steal ideas...

I love to steal good ideas, and make them into better ideas...

Here's a recent Nasty Clamps video that features a really good idea (stolen from David Hobby's Strobist site), which I then turn around into a much better idea.
