George Takei Speaks Out

4 Nov

One of my friends on Facebook shared this video and I felt compelled to share. I’m not gay but this video spoke to me. No one should wish death on another human being, especially if you don’t even know them.

George Takei is the man.

I know I know I know! I’ve told you about SwagBucks before. But I’m going to do it again!

Swagbucks is an internet search engine that rewards YOU! Just by searching you win SwagBucks which can be used to redeem all kinds of prizes. My favorite prize is the $5 Amazon Gift Card. So far I have received nineteen $5 gift cards plus one $10 Barnes & Noble gift card. That is $105 worth of gift cards for $0!!! Mainly by searching the web (which I do all the time anyways) I have been given over $100 in just over two years! WOW!! I just figured out that total and man am I impressed!

There are other ways to earn SwagBucks, like the toolbar. Yes, the toolbar gives you 1 buck everyday, just for having it.

Lonely Avenue by Ben Folds and Nick Hornby

30 Oct

The latest album by Ben Folds, Lonely Avenue,  is a little different than his previous efforts. This album was a collaboration between Ben and Nick Hornby. Nick wrote all the lyrics and Ben put the music around it and performed it.

I didn’t know it when I first heard the name, but I am a fan of Nick Hornby! He is an English writer who happened to write the book that one of my favorite movies of all time was based off of, High Fidelity with John Cusack. I’ve actually contemplated purchasing the book (since I’ve started reading actual books!). Every song seems to do a great job telling a story, this shouldn’t be a surprise when you see how many great novels Hornby has written!

Random Shirts…A Return!

26 Oct

Yea, it has been a while, but I’m going to try to blog a bit more. I know I’ve said that before…but here goes nothing!

A couple weeks ago Shirt.Woot! did another random shirt day and if you’ve ever read my blog you’ll know that I LOVE random shirts! This time I picked up two of the mystery shirts. One for me and one for JC.

No pics (still have a broken camera) but I can steal some images from Woot!

Disney’s Upgrade to Blu Program

11 Jun

Now that I have a Blu-Ray player I was confronted with the problem of re-buying all of my old DVD’s so that I could have them in Blu-Ray. Well, I shouldn’t say that. I NEVER plan on upgrading all 200+ of my DVD’s to Blu-Ray. It just doesn’t make sense. Blu-Ray’s are still pretty expensive, so I’ll only get Blu-Ray’s on movies I REALLY want swapped.

Goat Trauma Awareness Month

5 Jun

Yes everyone, June is Goat Trauma Awareness Month. I may be stealing my friend, the keeper of monkeys, thunder by talking about awareness but this one was too big to ignore.

You can learn more about the horror that is childhood goat trauma on The Childhood Goat Trauma Foundation’s website. Including the very chilling goat trauma in action section.

It is almost too much for me, goats are scary. Especially the theatrical kind! Just kidding Greater Orlando Actor’s Theatre!

Gingers Have Souls!

1 May

Apparently South Park’s ripping on “Gingers” has pissed off this kid “CopperCab” on YouTube.

He is so worked up that I should write about it. For those of you who don’t know, according to South Park, Ginger’s don’t have souls. The episode “Ginger Kids” is a a winner in my book and you can watch it here. That show prompted “CopperCab” to make this video (NSFW: Language warning):

Sansa Clip 8GB from Woot!

14 Apr

On April 1st Woot! was having  their “Woot! Your Own Adventure” fun on their main site with many good deals available if you could find them! I ended up purchasing on one of their sister sites, Sellout.Woot! Sellout is a partnership with Yahoo! shopping and was recently incorporated into Deals.Woot! Confused yet?

Bottom line is that I purchased an 8GB Sansa clip for use when I run (especially when there comes a time I need to run on my own). The Sansa clip appears to be perfect for running since it is ITTY BITTY! But more on that later

I was excited when I opened the mailbox and saw this:

Census For Trekkies!

2 Apr

I got this article from a Tweet by LeVar Burton (@levarburton) yesterday.

Census Bureau Receiving Forms With Star Trek Races Written In (From TrekMovie.com)

I, as I told you, filled out my census form without thinking of having some fun. I wish I could be recognized officially as a Borg or Vulcan or Cardassian ( Not Kardashian). I could have at least put Trekkie in the box!

In other Census news. My parents didn’t get a Census form. I got a pre-letter, the Census and a postcard reminding me to fill out the Census and my parents got nothing. The house has been there since the  early 80’s and they’ve lived there since 1986 so apparently the US Government knows who lives there…They are watching us you know!
