Earbud Instruction Manual? Yes, I’m Serious

Earbud Instructions

So I stopped at lunch today to get a new pair of earbuds. I’d left mine at home and I was lucky enough to find a pair on sale for only $4.99. The concept of earbuds (headphones) is pretty straight forward so you can imagine my surprise when I opened them up and saw that they’d come with instructions: Operating Instructions: Insert the audio plug into your iPod / MP3 / audio source’s headphone jack. … Continue reading

Videos Today… Wow. Just Wow.

Red Solo Cup By Toby Keith

I’m old enough to remember a time where MTV played videos.  I’m also old enough to really not have time for the garbage that MTV currently has in their lineup.  Actually, now that I think about it, that last statement isn’t fair.  At this point I really don’t know what MTV is playing these days cause I was turned off by the rash of crap (16 And Pregnant, Jersey Shore, The Real World, etc.) they … Continue reading

Lyrics That Touch – Firework By Katy Perry

Firework - Katie Perry

If you’re like me you heard this song WAY too often over the 4th of July weekend this past year.  For me it started off as a catchy tune that I got sick of.  I had on the iPod shuffle this morning and it came on.  I don’t know that I’ve ever really listened to the lyrics before but if you really look at what Ms. Perry is singing about it’s a pretty damn moving … Continue reading

A Trip Of Flicks

G.I. Joe The Movie (1987)

I recently went on a quick trip to Vegas for work – in on Wednesday out on the “red-eye” on Friday evening.  The show was great and I managed to get in a little bit of time at the tables which was nice as well.  In preparation for my trip, I loaded up the iPod with quite a few flicks to make sure that I’d have plenty to keep me busy on the trip and … Continue reading

Talk About Some Great Lyrics

Rodney Atkins - If You're Going Through Hell

I’m not a big country music fan but I was driving a couple of years back on a business trip with nothing else to listen to.  I heard this song and when I got back to the hotel immediately purchased it from iTunes.  I had the iPod on shuffle this evening and ran across it again.  Nearly brought a tear to my eye… damn do I love my boys! Artist/Band: Rodney Atkins Lyrics for Song: … Continue reading

If I Had A Hammer

Jackhammer

A jackhammer is a wonderful tool when you need to break up concrete.  It allows you to do a job that otherwise would be incredibly tedious or nearly impossible.  They also are incredibly LOUD. For the last 4 (and counting) days now I’ve had the pleasure of listening to a jackhammer from when I got to work until the time I left in the evening.  There’s a restaurant going in downstairs and apparently they need … Continue reading

‘Saw’ – Horror Hasn’t Looked So Good In Years

Saw (2004)

Now before you get all on my case about this movie review being 5 years too late let me give you a bit of background… I don’t watch nearly as many movies as I used to.  At least I don’t watch them right when they come out.  The wife and I haven’t seen a movie in the last 15 years that we both like so it’s very rare that we rent anything.  My kids are … Continue reading
