The Ugly Truth Trailer







A romantically challenged morning show producer (Heigl) is reluctantly embroiled in a series of outrageous tests by her male chauvinist correspondent (Butler) to prove his theories on relationships and allow her to find love. His clever ploys, however lead to an expected result.[

I really like both Katherine Heigl & Gerard Butler. At first this seemed like an odd pair. But the more I watch the trailer, the more funny this movie looks.

G Force Movie Trailer



Before you get all excited, this is not the G Force based on the cartoon of your youth. It's about animals. Animals that talk and work as spys for the government.

This one looks kinda silly. But kids might find in funny. Small kids.

Knowing Trailer




Official Press:

Academy Award® Winner Nicolas Cage stars in KNOWING, a gripping action-thriller of global proportions about a professor who stumbles on terrifying predictions about the future—and sets out to prevent them from coming true. In theaters March 20, 2009.




"John Koestler (Cage), a professor, finds that the contents of a time capsule at his son's elementary school makes predictions of major disasters that happen in the future which of course do happen. Koestler then realizes that the numbers eventually stop on the paper. This leads the teacher to believe the world is ending, and that he and his son are involved in the apocalyps."

This one looks good. I like Cage's work alot.



THE FORLORN - MOVIE TRAILER



Check out this trailer. Alison Haislip, the hottie from G4TV & AOTS is in it. She sent a Twitter out to promo it. I was thinking it would be a skit or something low budget. But, it looks nothing like her work on G4. It gave me the willies. And that's a good thing! :)

Will it do well? Maybe. Will it help Alison's budding movie career? I hope so.

Here's a neat little website. It's called twitterholic.com You can use it to get your 'stats' Where you rank in your town, how many followers you have, etc. One of my friends on Twitter saw that he was # 1 in Alexandria, VA. When I searched my own stats, I found that I too was #1 in my town, Edgewater Park, NJ. I also found that I was the only one. Oh well. It's lonely at the top.

2009 Oscars


I did not see alot of the pictures this year. (I think The Dark Knight is the only one I saw.) So I can't really make a honest pick for best picture, best actor, etc. But, I did just watch a news story on ABC World News about a man named Nate Silver.

Who is Nate Silver? He is the statistician that used computer models and crunched the numbers to accurately predict the 2008 Presidential Election on his blog: Fivethirtyeight.

ABC News asked him to take all the data from the past 30 years of Oscars and to make some picks, based on the numbers. His results were interesting.

Best Picture: Slumdog Millionaire
Best Actor: Mickey Rourke for The Wrestler
Best Actress: Kate Winslet for The Reader
Best Supporting Actor: Heath Ledger for The Dark Knight
Best Supporting Actress: Taraji P. Henson for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

We will have to see if he's right. Stay Tuned...

Sirius XM Radio Shuffle - Vertical Horizon - Everything You Want


Today I went to visit my parents. On long car rides like this, (about 1.5 hours) I usually listen to music on my Iphone. (See posts marked Iphone Shuffle.) But today I put on my Satellite radio. 95% of the time, when I have it on, I'm listening to Howard Stern. But, he's been on vacation this past week and decided to listen to the music. Here's a great one from the 90's on 9 channel.

Star Wars Spoof Battle With Benny Hill



This is one of those videos that makes me think, "Why didn't someone think of this sooner?" The editing and audio work so well together, it's spooky.

For those of you who don't know, Benny Hill was a British comedian. He often did small movies that were sped up in this fashion. But always with this funny music. I put this explanation in here, because just yesterday, while at work, we were stocking the shelves with Easter plush dolls. One of them played this music. I commented to a fellow worker, on how funny the Benny Hill music was. This girl, who in now in college, had never heard of him. Made me feel old.

Iphone Shuffle - Miranda Lambert - Gunpowder & Lead


Here's a great tune I heard today from Miranda Lambert. She's a tough cookie. Whatever you do, don't break this girl's heart!!

This is from her Wikipedia page:

Miranda Lambert (b. November 10, 1983, Lindale, Texas)[1] is an American country music artist who gained fame as a finalist on the 2003 season of Nashville Star, where she finished in third place and later signed to Epic Records.[2] Lambert made her debut with the release of "Me and Charlie Talking", the first single from her 2005 debut album Kerosene. This album, which was certified Platinum in the United States, also produced the singles "Bring Me Down", "Kerosene", and "New Strings". All four singles were Top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts.

After the closure of Epic's Nashville division, Lambert was transferred to Columbia Records Nashville for her second album, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, which was released in early 2007. Although its first single (the title track) failed to make top 40, the next three singles ("Famous in a Small Town", "Gunpowder & Lead", and "More Like Her") were all Top 20 hits, with "Gunpowder & Lead" becoming her first Top 10 country hit in July 2008.

This is the history of the song:

IPhone Shuffle - Alan Jackson - Drive (For Daddy Gene)

Here's a great song from country super-star Alan Jackson.

I was never a county music fan. Then I met my wife. She grew up on country and I quickly found out, not only was the music good, I liked it. Alot.

Alan Jackson can do no wrong in my book. His songs go much deeper than the normal 'good ol boy' songs. This song is such an example. This song is special to me. It always takes me back to memories of my Father and his teachings to me about driving and endless other life lessons.

IJustine on G4TV



IJustine is another Internet Celebrity that I have recently found. Her videos are sometimes funny sometimes serious, but always entertaining.

This is from her Wikipedia page:

"Justine Ezarik (pronounced [iːˈzeɪ.ɹɪk], born March 20, 1984), is a viral video comedienne, freelance graphic/web designer and video editor originally based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She is best known as iJustine, a lifecaster who communicated directly with her hundreds of viewers on her Justin.tv channel, ijustine.tv.[1][2] She has made more than 200 videos, including satires on such subjects as Lost and parkour.[3] Her videos have received more than 25 million views, 16 million on YouTube alone.[4] Her popularity is such that a video about her wanting to order a cheeseburger got 600,000 YouTube views in a week.[5] She is sometimes described as a "lifecasting star,"[6] a "new media star,"[7] or one of the web's most popular lifecasters.[8] In 2008, she relocated her base of operation from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Los Angeles, California.[5]

Ezarik is famous for her "300-page iPhone bill", which followed the first month of service after the introduction of the iPhone in 2007. The viral video earned her international attention and celebrity.[9] The bad publicity that AT&T earned as a result of her video featuring her reviewing this bill and similar stories coincided with the announcement that detailed billing would become optional for iPhone users."

Fanboys



Here is a new trailer for Fanboys.

Here is the plot from Wikipedia.

"Set in 1998, the story tells of a group of friends who, eager for the premiere of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace - and because one of them is suffering from cancer and wishes to see the film before his death - decide to break into Skywalker Ranch and steal an early print of the film. They travel across the country and on their way they encounter William Shatner, obsessed Trekkies, and bikers who make them undress for water."

It looks like a slam dunk for any true Star Wars fan.

Shazam song of the Day


I have decided to start a new feature, the Shazam song of the day. Shazam is an application that lets users find information on music.

For example. Your in the mall and you hear a song on the overhead speakers. You have heard it before, but don't know who sings it. You take your phone out and let it take a listen. Within seconds, the program responds with the song title and artist. A very neat program. I have used this program often with alot of the muzak that I hear at work. Here is one I heard today.

5 Minute Management Course

Here is another email joke from Dad!! Keep them coming!!

5 Minute Management Course

Lesson 1:


A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower, when the doorbell rings.

The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs.

When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbour.

Before she says a word, Bob says, 'I'll give you $800 to drop that towel.'

After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob, after a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 and leaves.

The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs.

When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, 'Who was that?'

'It was Bob the next door neighbour,' she replies.

'Great,' the husband says, 'did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?'

Moral of the story:

If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure.


Lesson 2:

A priest offered a Nun a lift.

She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg.

The priest nearly had an accident.

After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg.

The nun said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?'

The priest removed his hand. But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again.
The nun once again said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?'

The priest apologized 'Sorry sister but the flesh is weak.'

Arriving at the convent, the nun sighed heavily and went on her way.

On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, 'Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory.'

Moral of the story:

If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.


Lesson 3:

A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp.

They rub it and a Genie comes out.
The Genie says, 'I'll give each of you just one wish.'
'Me first! Me first!' says the admin clerk. 'I want to be in the Bahamas , driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.'
Puff! She's gone.

'Me next! Me next!' says the sales rep. 'I want to be in Hawaii , relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life.'

Puff! He's gone.

'OK, you're up,' the Genie says to the manager.
The manager says, 'I want those two back in the office after lunch.'

Moral of the story:

Always let your boss have the first say.


Lesson 4:

An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing.

A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, 'Can I also sit like you and do nothing?'
The eagle answered: 'Sure, why not.'

So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

Moral of the story:

To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.


Lesson 5:

A turkey was chatting with a bull.

'I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree' sighed the turkey, 'but I haven't got the energy.'
'Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?' replied the bull. They're packed with nutrients.'

The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, and found it actually gave him enough str ength to reach the lowest branch of the tree.

The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.

Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of the tree.

He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the tree.

Moral of the story:

Bull Sh1t might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there..


Lesson 6:

A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field.

While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him.

As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was.

The dung was actually thawing him out!

He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy.
A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate.

Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.

Morals of the story:

(1) Not everyone who sh1ts on you is your enemy.
(2) Not everyone who gets you out of sh1t is your friend.
(3) And when you're in deep sh1t, it's best to keep your mouth shut!

THUS ENDS THE FIVE MINUTE MANAGEMENT COURSE

Sell This House



Sell This House is a great show on A&E. One day, while I was getting my wife's car serviced, the tv in the waiting room had this show on. I watched and was pretty amazed at the transformation of these houses.

The basic idea is that they find a house that is already on the market, but has not sold. The TV crew fills the house with hidden camera and invites potential home buyers in for an open house event. The comments are then used to change the house into the ultimate dream home. The same open house guests are invited back after 2 days to see the new layout.

De-clutter, clean and paint are the path to the real goal, selling the house. It's pretty neat to see the before and after videos of these houses and how it only takes them 3 days! Usually the changes are under budget and what they do, most any 'weekend warrior' can do.

This is from the official website.

"Want to know what buyers are really thinking about a house for sale? Sell This House™ gets inside the mind of the buyer and the heart of the seller. Each episode features homeowners desperate to sell and prospective buyers secretly videotaped as they express their observations upon first seeing the house. Watching the footage, homeowners get a peek inside what potential buyers like, love, and hate about their home.

The homeowners also receive some advice from a real estate and home decoration expert who recommends changes. Then the real work begins as homeowners and the Sell This House team gets started redesigning and renovating the house, hoping that their efforts will lead to a big payoff.

Learn pointers, tips, and other suggestions on how to prepare your house for market while the team transforms each house from okay to must see. After the work is complete, the buyers are brought back. Will the house sell? For how much? To whom? You'll learn the answers as participants experience the ups and downs of Sell This House."

The small cast is lead by Tanya Memme. A "sassy & quick-witted" former Miss World Canada. She's funny and seems like she genuinely wants to help these homeowners.

The ultimate changes are made by Roger Hazard. He's the designer and always seems to find the 'diamond in the rough'.

Sell This House is on A&E Saturdays at 8am

The Onion: FDA Approves New Depressant Drug

Good Eats



I have posted about some of my favorites on the Food Network before, but I thought that Good Eats deserved a new post.

I was never much of a cook. Bacon & eggs were fine dining to me. However, after watching the Food Network, Good Eats specifically, I have become much more adventurous in the kitchen. Alton Brown makes it look so easy. I know from experience, that it always seems easier when the pros do it on TV. But everyday brings me one step closer to my own 'Good Eats'.

Here is the first paragraph from Wikipedia on Good Eats.

Good Eats is a television cooking show created and hosted by Alton Brown that airs in North America on Food Network. Likened to television science educators Mr. Wizard and Bill Nye, Brown explores the science and technique behind the cooking, the history of different foods, and the advantages of different kinds of cooking equipment. The show tends to focus on familiar dishes that can easily be made at home, and also features segments on choosing the right appliances, and getting the most out of inexpensive, multi-purpose tools. Each episode of Good Eats has a distinct theme, which is typically an ingredient or a certain cooking technique, but may also be a more general theme such as Thanksgiving, or "man food".

Humor and corny acting are another reason that I keep coming back to see older episodes. (I only started watching about a year ago.) So all of the older shows are new to me.

Alton is on other shows on the Food Network like Iron Chef America & Feasting on Asphalt. Plus the occasional holiday special, etc.

There seems like there is no end to the wonderful world of food. With Alton and the rest of the Food Network, we can all have our own 'Good Eats'.

Oh no. Twitter is down.


How will we know what we all had for breakfast? Just kidding. I'll wait.

Is it up yet?

How about now?

Survivor: Tocantins



Survivor: Tocantins is the 18th season of Grand Daddy of Reality Shows. I have watched every season since it started. Some seasons have been better than others, but the core idea has never changed.

Every year brings new twists & turns. As well as the same old good looking people in small bathing suits. I know I'll be watching.

Thursday's at 8pm on CBS.

Close Up Eye Candy

DEA


This is a reality tv show on Spike TV. It is produced by Al Roker of the Today Show. I heard him this morning on Howard Stern plugging it. It's kinda like the show COPS. Except this show rides along with the Drug Inforcement Agency.

It sounds very interesting and looks like we could get to see real life crime of Northern New Jersey. It's on tonight at 10pm on Spike TV. I'm gonna set my Tivo!!

The Smoking Gun


The Smoking Gun is a great website. It shows a 'warts & all' look at crime. It's always fun to see the latest crop of mugshots.

Here is the Wikipedia's first paragraph on The Smoking Gun.

The Smoking Gun is a website that posts legal documents, arrest records, and police mugshots on a daily basis. The intent is to bring to the public light information that is damning, shocking, outrageous, or amazing, yet also somewhat obscure or unreported by more mainstream media sources. Most of the site's content revolves around historical and current events, although it also features documents and photos relating to out-of-the-ordinary crimes and people. It is owned by truTV.

They have a weekly email that highlights the latest & greatest. These came in last week, just getting around to them today.

The week's best mug shots.
I love some of their T-shirts!

Bold-Faced Suspect.
Not sure, but I think he may be unfriendly.

Iphone Shuffle - The Bangles Walk Like An Egyptian

Here's another great tune that sticks in your head for awhile. I grew up in the 80's and I have alot of music from that big-haired decade. I couldn't find the official video, but this is the Bangles at a live event doing their classic song.

Will It Blend? History

Here are some more interesting links about Will It Blend.

The Wikipedia web entry puts it very well.

Will It Blend? is a viral marketing campaign consisting of a series of infomercials demonstrating the Blendtec line of blenders, especially the Total Blender. In the show, Tom Dickson, the Blendtec founder, attempts to blend various items in order to show off the power of his blender. Dickson started this marketing campaign after doing a blending attempt with a box of matches.

Here is Will It Blend? videos on YouTube.

Here's another great YouTube Star. Tom Dickson puts everything you could think of in his powerful blender. I don't think there's anything that his blender will not destroy!!

Joke of the Day

Here is another great one. This one comes from my Dad!! Don't know where these keep coming from, just keep 'em coming!

Those Italians!

A Catholic Priest, an Indian Doctor, a rich Chinese businessman and an Italian from New York were waiting one morning for a particularly slow group of golfers in front of them.
The Italian from New York fumed, 'What's with those jerks? We're waiting fifteen minutes between shots!'

The Indian Doctor chimed in, 'I don't know, but I've never seen such poor golf!'
The Chinese businessman called out 'Move it, time is money'!!!
The Catholic Priest said, 'Here comes the greens keeper. Let's have a word with him.'
'Excuse me, Sir! Said the Catholic Priest, 'What's wrong with that group ahead of us? They're rather slow, aren't they?'

The greens keeper replied, 'Oh, yes. That's a group of blind fire fighters. They lost their sight saving our clubhouse from a fire last year, so we always let them play for free anytime.'
The group fell silent for a moment.

The Catholic Priest said, 'That's so sad. I think I will say a special prayer for them tonight.'
The Indian Doctor said, 'Good idea. I'm going to contact my Ophthalmologist colleague and see if there's anything that he might be able to do for them.'
The Chinese businessman replied, 'I think I'll donate $50,000 to the fire fighters Union in honor of these brave souls'!!

The Italian from New York said, 'Why can't they f***ing play at night?

Top 50 Hottest Sci Fi Girls

Here's a neat list that I found on ugo.com. Is your favorite on the list?

"Extra-terrestrials, supersonic spaceships, futuristic robots, cloning experiments: these technological ideas and intelligents beings all pale in comparison to the skimpy sci-fi costume. To celebrate the hottest sci-fi girls of all time, we've collected the most interesting and influential specimens from this side of the galaxy and tried our best to rank them based on character, movie and overall hottiness. Yes, some ladies didn't make the cut (we miss you Orion Slave Girl), but we think you'll appreciate the balance of new, old and quirky. Just remember, hot isn't only about the way they fill out their spacesuit (though it certainly helps!). So without any more dilly-dallying, come check out the Top 50 Hottest Sci-Fi Girls of All-Time!

Chad Vader


There are lots of funny videos on YouTube. Some that I think are very riot are from blamesocietyfilms. They have lots of videos about different subjects, but my favorites are about Chad Vader.


Chad Vader claims to be Darth Vader's younger brother. Chad is the day shift manager at Empire Market. (A small local grocery store.) He looks and sounds like Darth Vader. He has all of Darth Vaders powers. He even has a lightsaber. And he's going to need them when he has to deal with all the nuts in this store. Don't ask how or why. Those kinda questions make my head hurt.


It's no secret that I'm a huge Star Wars fan. But, the fact that I'm also an assistant manager at a drug store, makes Chad's adventures even more appealing.




Monsters vs Aliens


Here's another trailer that caught my eye.

I especially like the "scanner" that the worker has to go through to get to see the President. Not sure how sanitary it is....

Planet 51


I saw this trailer yesterday. It looks cute. But we'll have to wait until November 20, 2009 to see it.

Here is the official copy:

Planet 51 is a galactic sized animated alien adventure comedy revolving around American astronaut Captain Charles “Chuck” Baker, who lands on Planet 51 thinking he’s the first person to step foot on it. To his surprise, he finds that this planet is inhabited by little green people who are happily living in a white picket fence world reminiscent of a cheerfully innocent 1950s America, and whose only fear is that it will be overrun by alien invaders…like Chuck! With the help of his robot companion “Rover” and his new friend Lem, Chuck must navigate his way through the dazzling, but bewildering, landscape of Planet 51 in order to escape becoming a permanent part of the Planet 51 Alien Invaders Space Museum.

Not Recommended for Small Children


Here is the description from the Happy Tree Friends YouTube page:

Cute, cuddly, and horribly wrong.
http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=83FBDDD2D702407B

That seems to sum it up nicely. Happy Tree Friends is a flash cartoon that has a cult like following on the internet. It has very cute little critters who get into the most violent situations you could think of. The Wikipedia website describes it very well when it says:

"As indicated on the official site, it is "not recommended for small children". Notwithstanding the somewhat childish shape of the series and the cute appearance of its characters, the show is extremely violent, with nearly every episode featuring blood, gore and extremely painful, bloody and gruesome deaths."


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Happy_tree_friends

It's like when you pass an accident on the highway, you just have to slow down to watch. Maybe it's because the characters are soooo cute and the blood & guts soooo grizzy that makes it popular. Not sure. All I know is that I do keep coming back week after week to see the same little critters get hacked up. Not sure it that's good or bad. I'll have to think about it!

Are Reality Shows Setting Unrealistic Standards For Skanks?

I love the Onion. It's very funny. If you have never seen it before, think CNN without any facts and replace the reporters with joke writers.

Real Gone

Here is the history of "Real Gone"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real_Gone_(Sheryl_Crow_song)

Iphone Shuffle - Sheryl Crow - Real Gone

This is a great song. If you have seen the movie "Cars" you will know this song. It's the song played during the opening racing scene. I have the soundtrack to this movie and it has several songs that I really enjoy.

Not sure why, but this song seems to be connected to my gas pedal. :)

US Airways Plane taken apart




Also when the plane was taken apart and shipped to a warehouse, my parents friends were there to see the plane make the journey through town. Here are some of the pictures.
