Hey guys! I collaborated on this project with a friend.  His site is if you get a chance to check it out.  Wasn't sure if I could pull a "headbanging" piece off, but it works! Hope you like it! And this was my first time drawing yeah, I'm kinda proud of them!

Headbanging is an exciting form of entertainment that has been around since cavemen times.
Thankfully, over the years it has evolved into a much more enjoyable experience.  However, it is not to be confused with Repetitive Motion Syndrome.  This condition usually occurs at work.

Remember, this is not a form of headbanging.  It is a desperate cry for help.

Have you ever been to a crowded concert and it gets hot fast and starts to get miserable, but you really want to be at the concert?
Try headbanging. If everyone practices the headbanging technique, there would be no need for air-conditioning.  This is a win-win situation for you, the person sitting next to you and the environment. That would actually be win-win-win situation, which is even better.
Have you ever been speaking to someone in a real conversation and all of a sudden neither of you has anything to say and the seconds tick on and you are standing there not real purposeful and then awkwardness starts to set in like E Coli on warm beef?  Then the beef gets warmer.  There are a few things you can do to help take the edge off of the awkwardness:

 1.  Tapdancing

  2.  Pull a rabbit out of a hat
Pulling a rabbit out of a hat does work to ease the awkwardness.  The only problem with this technique is the average person doesn't wear a hat...or a rabbit.  

  3.  Pull fire out of a hat
This is one of my favorite techniques, however, it carries the same problem as technique #2.  Most people just don't wear hats.

4.  Headbanging
There seems to be something about the gentle, repeating motion of headbanging that relaxes everyone and distracts away from awkwardness and unlike the hat issues, most people have their head on.  The subtle, but rapid movements, also keeps blood from pooling in the back or side of your brain from any bad posture issues you may have.  You will never have to stand up straight again!

As a result,headbanging could save your life and is highly recommended by the American Posture Association.  Headbanging could be your ticket to a healthier, more eco-friendly life and the worse-case scenario is you will fall face first into a wall or the cement, but remember at times, cement can be very giving.

  1. I used to headbang. When Beavis and Butthead originally launched, I was in my teens. As well as Wayne's World. It was all the rage in the 90's.

    I remember feeling 'swishy' after doing it. And woozy. I'll pass.

    ....does that make me a prude?

  2. Any time I get in one of those awkward quiet moment situations, I throw me hands up, scream "WHEEE" while running around the room and then returns to face the person and ask, "You were saying?"

  3. Can I just be a head-tapper? I get dizzy when I head bang.

    I head banged too hard in my younger years, now I can only tap tap

  4. Bahaha, great choice of acronym there with APA!

    Also, if you ever fall in cement and find it "giving" you should probably check your hair for quickly-solidifying chunks of sidewalk material. Just sayin'. =P

  5. Haha! I'm grabbing my sides in painful laughter. Oh, who knew humor would hurt this much. Thanks so much for the shout out and taking the headbanging idea and running with it.

    I really like the cavemen.

    P.S. My next post will feature this one

  6. I'm more into nodding, but I can try headbanging.

    Thanks for the laugh.

  7. Your cavemen are really cute (even if the big guy does look overly pleased at having bashed the little guy)

    Headbanging works best if you have lots of hair - fortunately I do.

  8. After reading this, I'm definitely going to take up headbanging. Unfortunately, I cant tap-dance. Nor do I have a rabbit..or fire :(

  10. preeety wierd, I always tought headbanging could damage your brain...
