Its not bad overall. I was with you until pic #13 because your head kind of disappeared and your arms went out like you were dancing to the Y M C A or something.
Also on #20, you say you invented it personally and it is for your ankles, but neither of those is true. And your not supposed to put all of your bodyweight on one side, you have to have some distributed over the extended foot.
Another thing to note is that there are a lot of static stretches in that 'Warm up Routine'. You should be reserving those for your cool down and focusing on dynamic stretches for your warm up. Its not good to have too much assisted stretching either.

Like the website, too!
"Beats" section is very cool. . .but the beats in the junk section return a "404 - not found" error.

PO9: Thank you! YUM YUM
Edge: Thanks for your critisism. Unfortunately the Stadion stretching philosophy goes against Shaolin stretching philosophy (that is, more pain = more gain).
Meex: Thanks! I'll look into it, maybe the links are broken.
In the end, i made this article so that people could use it as a stretching guide if they think it's good. I'm not saying it's right to do one way or the other.

As for philosophy. . .
When I was in Japan we were invited to watch Yokozuna Akebono/Chad Rowan train, and to visit with him and his oyakata/(stablemaster Takamiyama/Jesse Kuhaulua, at Jesse's beya/stable/gym.
The new guys who were not able to do splits were allowed to go as low as possible, and then upper ranks would lean/sit on their backs,and force them down to the ground in excruciating pain, which most took without crying out, but, not all. One guy. . .you could almost "hear" the muscle tear.
Jesse explained that even though it looks very painful, the pain would subside, and the miscles will heal, and the training could continue later with no ill effects of the tears, even making the muscle stronger, and it was quicker for the sthlete than waiting to be able to stretch.
pain = pain

Too much. Way too much. First of all, Edge is right, static stretching should not be part of a warmup. Second of all, half an hour is a LONG time to spend stretching, especially if it's being done before an actual workout. Third, static stretching should only be done for muscles that are overly tight, to return them to a normal length-tension relationship. Any other stretching for flexibility should be done in a dynamic or PNF fashion. Fourth, great, you're stretching out all the muscles groups that are already relatively loose in most people and ignoring the muscle groups that tend to cause people problems.
