Michael Keaton is/was a Superhero Again (sorta) in “Birdman”

banner-birdman-film-3Not a superhero flick, but superhero flick-esque… and it is starring the amazing Michael Keaton (where has he been?  Missed the guy!).  In “Birdman or (the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)” MK plays an actor who portrayed an iconic Superhero figure in the movies then moved on to “other things”.  Looks like a dark comedy done right with a pretty solid cast Backing Keaton up.  Here’s a first peek at “Birdman“:

The CIA Joined Twitter

It’s only been 4 days since the CIA (yeah, the Central Intelligence Agency) joined Twitter and they are already at celebrity level status with followers, favoriters, and retweeters (pretty sure I just made up two of those words.).  At the time of this posting they are already at 621,000 followers.  “How in the hell does a boring bureaucratic agency like the CIA get that many followers so quickly?” you might be asking yourself (we did).  Well, it helps when your first tweet looks like this:

CIA1stTweetYup… the CIA just proved that they have game.  Did I immediately follow them after reading this inaugural tweet?  Hell yes.  If this is just the beginning I can’t wait to see what else they kick out into the Twittersphere.  You might be asking yourself what other government agencies have jumped into the Twitter Universe as well, and after a quick inspection of the 25 pages the CIA follows (come on, you weren’t super curious too?) we discovered a number of them from Homeland Security to the Air-force and Darpa.  All perfectly Legit… and all pretty cool.  It kind of makes me happy to think my tax dollars are also paying for some Social Media knucklehead to sit around Tweeting about all things government.  No really… in fact, I’m kind of jealous!

Go get your Twitter on people… and follow our government in action!

True Facts About…

This guy is straight up killing it!!!  I’ve been happily watching video after video for a while and have finally come to the conclusion that I 100% dig this dudes video series “True Facts About…”.  His voice is quirky, he comedic timing is pretty spot-on, and he even tosses in some legit facts to spice things up.

Caution: if you start watching this you will spend the next hours of your life enthralled in brilliance.  Enjoy!!!

In case you haven’t yet… make sure you watch “True Facts About the Armadillo”.  Hahahahaha!!!

“Rock the Vote” is for Regular People…

We support…

We think it has legs to really go places. Common people…

Some Monday Humor to Brighten Your Day: Paraprosdokians

Paraprosdokians (Winston Churchill loved them) are figures of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected and is frequently humorous… but you knew that.

  1. Where there’s a will, I want to be in it.
  2. The last thing I want to do is hurt you … but it’s still on my list.
  3. Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
  4. If I agreed with you, we’d both be wrong.
  5. We never really grow up — we only learn how to act in public.
  6. War does not determine who is right, only who is left.
  7. Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
  8. To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.
  9. I didn’t say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
  10. In filling out an application, where it says, “In case of emergency,    notify…”  I answered “a doctor.”
  11. Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.
  12. You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.
  13. I used to be indecisive, but now I’m not so sure.
  14. To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.
  15. Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian, any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.
  16. You’re never too old to learn something stupid.
  17. I’m supposed to respect my elders, but it’s getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

Hey… You (the Lazy One)… Get Off Your Ass and Vote!!!

It’s not a sexy Presidential Election… hell, there aren’t even any scandalous propositions vying to alter the way of life as we know it… but June 3rd is an election day and you, my friend, need to exercise your right as an American and vote!

Let me ask you this… do you celebrate veterans on Veterans Day?  Do you remember the fallen warriors of this awesome Nation on Memorial Day?  Do you wave old glory proudly from the front of your home?  Do you bask in the glow of Fireworks every 4th of July and have fond memories of running through the streets with sparklers as a kid?  ALL of these wonderful traditions are in memory of these United States of America and the sacrifices our country has made for your inalienable rights and Freedom!  Freedom to live as you so desire… freedom to speak your mind… and most importantly, freedom to choose!

So, spend at least an hour during the next 4 days and Google the politicians running for seats in your area.  Read some literature (you know, that packet you got in the mail).  And most importantly, honor the thousands upon thousands of American’s who proudly gave their lives so that you (yes, YOU) can walk into a tiny little plastic booth and VOTE!!!Old Glory over the USS Arizona  Memorial edit

Picking the Perfect Pair of Shades

Maui Jim Mala Sunglasses front2It’s a tough choice… and there are a TON of options!  You go to the store, try on pair after pair after pair hoping that one makes a random girl walking by say “Oh Damn!” under her breath just loud enough for you to hear.  You want that magical pair that make you look 80% G’Damn Rockstar, 10% Responsible & “with it”, 10% fashionista… and 1000% a normal person.  Do you get glass or plastic lenses, do you get metal or composite material frames, do you get polarized or not, what brand, what style… SO MANY QUESTIONS.

Well, hopefully we can help.  Over the past few years we’ve tried on countless styles and talked about how heavy they were over a long period of time, how versatile they were, how awesome they looked, and just all-around how sexy they made us feel (it’s important).  Continue reading

3 Words: Solar. Freakin’. Roadways!!!

Can we please please please please please make this a reality?  Can you even imagine?????   Parking lots powering buildings, Streets alerting you of things in the road, Driveways that melt snow (where the f’ was this when I was a kid?!?!).

Parking in a Red Zone… The parking space beneath you will start flashing red to let you know.  In metered parking and time is up…  How about a clock built right into the road?  So many possibilities… and it can power the Nation instead of nuclear or fossil fuels doing all the work.

Let’s do this people!
