Sweeney Todd by Tim Burton

Have you seen the previews for this new Tim Burton movie? I really like Johnny Deep as an actor. His new movie, named Sweeny Todd, fits right in with all the other "outside the norm" movies that he is a part of. You can see more information about the movie when you visit the official Sweeney Todd movie site or visit Sweeney Todd on Myspace.

On the buzznet.com web site you can give an actual confession. Confessions are a good way to vent or relieve some tension that has been building up through this holiday season. If I had to confess it would have to be that I have been trying to cheat at my football pool. I know, I know, it's not exactly that easy to do (which it's not), but I don't have a ton of time to watch every football game or read about every injury. I guess reading the "expert picks" isn't really cheating, but I still feel bad because I am trying to get some kind of influence from them.

I feel a little bit better, if you have a confession to make, go to the web site to give your own confession. Besides all of that, don't forget about the movie coming out soon!



Ok Fantasy Football Again

After last week's butt kicking that I got in my football pool (picking 8 out of 16 against the spread), let's just see if I can't do a little better this week. With the spread killers from last week, I am sure the spreads will be a little more reasonable. No more 20 point spreads. Teams that are good are finally going to start losing. Either way, we'll see how I do.

Review: MetBoots.com

Today's review is going to be on MetBoots.com. If you want good quality hiking boots and FREE shipping over $100, then you will have to head over to www.metboots.com. The web site has an easy to use navigation system in place that will get you to the exact pair of boots you are looking for in under 3 clicks. Not bad in my opinion.

There are many categories to choose from, as well as, boots from companies such as, Carolina, Converse, Danner, Dr. Martens, Nautilus, Rocky, Terra, Thorogood, and Wolverine. Making the shopping experience even better, you can shop by style (6" or 8" tall) or by brand. Don't forget the FREE shipping when your order is above $100. Plus they ship APO/FPO as well.

What is Up with Football?

Did you see some of the spreads from this past week in football? NONE of the big teams covered and what the hell is this 22 points (on Yahoo) given to New England and they win by 3!? I wasn't even watching the game, because, like everyone else, figured them a major favorite. Another game that got me by surprise was the Pittsburgh/Miami game. 3-0! Wow! I think the full moon played a HUGE roll in what happened in football week 12.

Needless to say, I still picked 8 tough ones out of 16 games. I am still in second place in my pool, but if the weeks are going to be rough like this, I am not sure I will be able to get anywhere.

New England Favored by 22!

Can you believe this? New England is favored by 22 points over the Eagles this week. I have had a hard enough time trying to pick against the spread this year, I HATE games with spread this high. ONE injury on New England and they won't cover, it's nuts. But of course I will have to pick them, because all my other "just in case" picks will be taken. My "just in case" picks are those that I try to pick the underdog that MIGHT win, because everyone else will for sure pick the favorite. That puts my high in the standings at the end of the weekend. :)

Freeze It Gel Contest Entry

I did a post about FreezeIt Gel a little while back and now they are asking for a contest entries. This post will be my entry and tell a short tale about how FreezeIt Gel would be perfect prize to win. Attached is a caricature of my fiance :) Read on.

It all started about 2 years ago, my fiance was attending a college of cosmetology in a nearby city. Everything was going great, she liked coloring hair, applying makeup and doing nails of customers she saw everyday. This was an accelerated college, which means the staff would try and cram "4 years of college" into 2 years. My fiance was there at least 5 days a week, if not 6 to keep up and stay ahead of the game. Things were quite stressful and then it happened. One snowy winter day, she was walking down into the basement of the old school house turned college. While navigating around some boxes on the steps, she slipped and fell to the bottom of the steps. Her right leg practically bent all the way above her shoulder. Picture doing the splits down a flight of 10 steps. She was with someone, thank God, and they made sure she was ok.

She was so nervous on this day to begin with because she had just had her own hair cut and was worried about my reaction (which was not a bad reaction I might add). To top it off, she falls down the steps. At this time I was working night shift and was awakening by my fiance sitting on the bed crying. I asked what was wrong and the tears started to flow. What she hoped would be a normal day with a surprise for me (her new hair cut), turned into one of pain and embarrassment. She told me the whole story and I couldn't believe she didn't break any bone or tear anything in her legs.

She did say that her back was bothering her, but was told to sign a slip of paper regarding the school's responsibility in the accident (bad move, but she was a wreck already). They claimed that she wasn't wearing the proper shoes, which I immediately disagreed with. She was wearing Sketchers with a decent sole that would help her in the snow. Anyway, we did end up going to the doctor. She was admitted quickly at our local walk-in clinic and sent out just as fast. When I asked her how it went, she told me the doctor made her try and touch her toes, which she could normally, and she was unable to do so. In a round about way the doctor said she wasn't trying and shouldn't be lazy about it. Mind you, she is in pain now. The doctor did NOTHING for her.

Over the next year or so, her back doesn't seem to hurt as bad, but every once in a while, she will get a sharp pain shoot through her back. Obviously, the pain is still there to some extent.

With all of that said, I would like to mention that I was part of the Freeze It Gel product sampling. Let me tell you first hand, that stuff works! I was impressed at how well it seemed to react to the pain in my fiances lower back and neck. She loved it and said that it didn't smell like other pain relief gels she has tried. She even asked me if it was available to purchase. I told her I would look into and when this contest came up, I thought was a perfect situation. A one year supply of Freeze It Gel would be the perfect surprise prescription for my fiances back pain.

The gel is perfect for sore muscles, muscular strains and even arthritis. I can say from experience that your sore muscles will LOVE this gel. See the Freeze It Gel commercial below.



P Diddy Ran the New York Marathon


How did this juicy little piece of "post of the day" material get passed me? I just saw on MSN front page that Puff Daddy, or P Diddy or Sean Combs or whatever, ran the New York City Marathon AND finished. His time was 4 hours, 14 minutes and 54 seconds. I think that is not bad for a guy that I am pretty sure hasn't run any distance in a while. Oh yeah, he also raised $2 million dollars at the same time.

I still can't believe this happened in 2003 and I wasn't aware of it. Hmm, oh well, he did raise money for his charity and a bunch of top names donated, including Ben Affleck, Bruce Willis and Jennifer Lopez.

Artificial Rock Address Plates


We have all seen them. The real nice looking rocks out front of the largest home on the block. We are in awe of the delicate landscaping they have and envy it every time we drive past it. What is it about the rocks out front that are so great? Well, one of them is an address plaque. How cool is that? You can have your address engraved right on the rock face, that way it fits in with the rest of your beautiful landscaping.

How many of you have the ability to take a 1000 pound boulder, have your address carved into it and have it set in your front yard? Not many I bet. So what do you do if you can't afford something like that? Well, how about one from the Artificial Rocks Factory? That's right, they have rocks just like the ones you drool over, only these are artificial. The advantage of having artificial ones for one, is they are easy to move, cheaper to purchase and they are easy to change when you update your landscaping.

All of the models you can buy are hollow, about 1 inch thick and completely open at he bottom. This makes things a lot cheaper and easier for any home owner. You have your choice of 4 models that you can have a rust free aluminum address or welcome plaque installed on. You also get to choose from 3 colors, so you can bet at least one will fit your landscape. The rocks are shipped via Fed Ex Ground right to your door and if you have an address plaque made, it may take up to 15-20 days to arrive.

These are the perfect gift for any garden lover and you can bet people will think these look 100% like the real thing.

Fantasy Football Update

This week I am on top of the group going into Monday Nights game. It looks so far like I am going to win the week since Denver already has a 14-0 lead over Tennessee. I actually cannot lose this week, even if Denver does not win. The closest person to me is ONE point behind and he has Denver also. If they lose, the points stay the same and that puts me at the top. 2 weeks in a row, not bad if I say so myself.

$10,000 Photo Contest


To sign up is FREE and UPLOAD your photos is easy. A lot of people have a digital camera and to take ONE good photo is becoming easier and easier. I entered this photo into a contest last year and was picked to go on to the next round of voting. It was taken with a simple Kodak Easyshare 5MP digital camera, with the black and white setting. I entered my picture at picture.com and never thought it was good enough after looking at the other submissions. After about 2 weeks or so, I did get a letter in the mail regarding my photo. It was voted to move on in the competition. I was pretty excited to say the least.

I love to take pictures and hopefully capture that amazing photo that is one of a kind. I am really into storms and trying to catch lightening as it flashes around the sky. I found the setting on my camera that allows the "shutter" to stay open longer and collect the "shot" over 8 seconds or so. At night it works perfectly because the only light in the bolt of lightening. Once I got that all worked out, I got this shot. I was in my backyard as the storm rolled in without rain up to this point. I was trying to get my camera pointed in the right direction. After about 15 misses, I figured I would just leave my camera pointing in one direction and hope for the best. Well, the next shot was this one. Amazing, I couldn't believe I got and because I was so excited I ran in the house to download it to my computer right away. What do you think? I think it's weird that it looks like the lightening is actually "pulling" away from the Earth, don't you?
With all of that said, as you can see it is easy to take a shot worthy of winning in competitions. You might already have a winner on your camera or computer. Join for FREE and UPLOAD your picture, what can you lose?

From the sound of it, was a pretty awesome game to watch! Plus with a WIN that helps me in my football pick 'em on Yahoo, but I will post about how that is going tomorrow.

Calling Mortgage Companies Again

Once again, I am calling mortgage companies to see if I can get a better interest rate than the one that I have. Last year I actually dealt with a California mortgage company and that was weird for some people. I live in the Midwest and some could not figure out why my mortgage was with them since they aren't in my state. There isn't any rule that says I have to have money from a bank in my state right? I did not think so.

But anyways, I will be calling and calling for a couple of weeks to see what I can get my rate down to. Lower the better obviously, but you just know it's not something the banks want to offer right away :) Gotta keep on them, that's the key! It would be nice for me to find a Wisconsin Mortgage company, but I am not going to hold my breath. :)

Lord of the Rings Online

In case you didn't already know, I am a gamer type. I like to play MMORPG's like DDO (Dungeons & Dragons Online) and LOTRO (Lord of the Rings Online). As you may know, they are two very different games and I am starting to see the differences every day. I really like the DEPTH of LOTRO, but I hate all the walking. Those of you that have played know exactly what I mean!

I will post more about my experiences online again soon.

A-Rod Makes Money, Again

Once again, the Yankees and A-Rod agreed to a multi-year, multimillion dollar contract. Oh yeah, did I mention that if he breaks the homerun record, he could get millions more? The contract is for 10 MORE YEARS and $275 million. You heard it right, the guy is out of control and the Yankees know they have no choice, but to resign him.

Lucky bastard.

Time to Winterize

Yup, it is already that time of the year again. I wake up freezing, let the dog outside and it's FREEZING with frost on the groud. I guess I have to get ready to winterize my home. Which doesn't take all that much, but it's work I was putting off like usual and now it's crunch time and it has to be done.

Stupid winter!

Biotene Toothpaste for Sensitive Teeth

I am a part of Payperpost sampling program. This months sample was that of Biotene Sensitive, toothpaste for sensitive teeth. This toothpaste claims to help fight cavities, cure dry mouth and be gentle with your sensitive teeth. Well, I thought this was perfect. I have a couple of teeth that are more sensitive than others. Most people wake up with dry mouth, so I thought this might be a cure when I brush before bed time. And cavities aren't any good, so if it helps that, we're good to go.

I tried the toothpaste 2 times a day (at least) for about 2 weeks. The things that I did notice were that the sensitive toothpaste didn't "lather" up like other pastes that I have used in my day. It has a nice taste to it, sort of minty, with a gel type consistency. I did sort of feel the dry mouth go away for the first part of the day after brushing in the morning, but couldn't tell if it made a difference that much at night.

I have always has sensitive teeth and I noticed that this toothpaste didn't irritate those teeth at all. I have had some teeth that were just bothered the second I put the brush in my mouth. Overall, I am quite happy with the toothpaste, I think that if I keep using it, I will see more results with the dry mouth and cavity prevention. For now, it's definitely worth using the rest of the bottle to experience the results.

Fantasy Football Update

So last week I won in my Yahoo Pro Football Pickem. I am closing in on the leader, I think I am within 10 points. There is a 4 way tie for 2nd place right now and that is what I am a part of. At this point in the season the point spreads become a little harder to pick against. But usually this is when I come out ahead. We'll see how it goes.

This week: 14 games with 7 picked correctly against the spread and 1 push.

Google Up, Google Down

What is with this whole Google Page Rank anyways? A lot of websites base the popularity of your website on the PR of Google, but does it really mean all that much? Last week, when the updates were done, this blog was a PR 3. This week already, my blog is down to a 2. But my traffic has only slightly INCREASED. Doesn't that mean it's MORE popular than LESS popular?

Mobile Marketing Technology

Do you own a cellphone? Of course you do, almost every single person that can talk has one. Well, pretty soon, you will also be familiar with mobile marketing. Marketing to users cell phones is nothing new and you will start seeing it in the near future. The big brands out there in the world are trying to reach todays spenders anyway that they can. One new way is through mobile marketing.

Marketers earn big bucks by getting the word of brand names out to all the customers that like to spend money. Would you use your cellphone if you knew that everytime you turned it on there was an ad to watch? Maybe, if you were interested, right?

Mobile marketing and mobile billing are something that will most likely take the world by storm. People don't carry cash with them anymore, some have even dumped their land lines at home in favor of the cell phone. Getting and paying your bills on your cell phone might not be that far fetched.

So, next time you read about mobile markteing, think of your cell phone and all the ways that big name companies are still trying to reach you. They want your money, but junk mail takes up trees. Would they be ok with wasting a little of your time to get their message across? You can bet on it!

Stephen King's The Mist

You have seen the previews for this movie by now. The Mist by Stephen King looks like it will be a one of a kind. At least I can only hope. I am a movie fanatic and love to see originals more than remakes.

One of my favorite Stephen King movies is The Shining. What an original movie and until I saw an episode about ghosts, I never knew that a lot of what happened in the movie, actually was experienced by Stephen King and his wife. While staying at the Stanley Hotel in Colorado, him and his wife just wanted to relax and what came out of it at the end is now known as The Shining. What an excellent story.

This thriller will be the next big thing, I have a feeling. Take a look at the trailer and see what you think. The movie seems to be well made and other reviews that I read about the movie are looking pretty damn good right now. If you are a fan of Stephen Kings books and movies, this one will be another one worth seeing.

After watching the trailer, I am totally pumped. This movie looks good in all aspects except what's in the mist. Take a look and see for your self.


Ghosthunters LIVE Reveal on SciFi

Tonight, actually as I post, the Ghosthunters are showing the footage from the Halloween special last week. There seemed to be plenty of personal experiences, but I wasn't very impressed by the footage that was presented. I just can't figure out, for the life of me, why they don't offer more angles and more cameras. If I was a Ghosthunter (hey we can all dream) I would have more cameras than you could shake a stick at, but that's just the way I do things :)

I think next week's show will have some previews from season 4 coming next year and a roundtable discussion looking back at the Ghosthunters favorite episodes. Stay tuned.
