9th Best Video of All Time

On our way to the best video of all time, we stop and reflect on number 9 right now. At number 10 we had the best thing Canada has to offer in Avril Lavigne. Oh wait, isn’t Pamela Anderson from Canada? So it’s the 2nd best thing to come out of Canada and wasn’t a female whailing about a sinking ship. Avril captured the 10th best video of all time and now we move up to number 9 on the list.

This video has subtitles you can read through out the video. One portion will be in Spanish and I can give you the translation, so you can read through the whole video.

Vamos a perder toda nuestra dignidad – We are going to lose all our dignity

No tenemos mas tiempo – There is no time

This band formed in the backwoods of Georgia and became a world-wide success. Many consider this band to be one of the pioneers of Alternative Music. They had big hits with Stand, Orane Crush, and Losing My Religion. Thier top video might give you “rapid eye movement” as you try to read the subtitles going by, but I think we can all complain about something. The band believes hurt is just a part of life and they show it in the 9th top video of all time.

9th Best Video Ever

Below is the song, but you can click HERE to see the actual video to this song.

So there you have it!

We have 2 videos down and 8 more awesome videos ahead. Don’t even try to guess the number 1 video of all time, because you will never do it. As for the videos leading up to the best video ever, then you might have a shot in getting some right. Feel free to list your top video or videos and give me your list of some of the best videos ever.

Shrek storm through the box offices this past weekend. This 3rd part of the movie series broke the record for a cartoon hitting the big screen. So who did Shrek 3 past on this list? It just so happens, Shrek 2 was the biggest cartoon openning ever. Shrek 2 had about 108 million in box office sales, and this 3rd part to Shrek came in at around 122 million. It’s still about 30 millon behind the latest Spiderman Movie that came out, but according to all the box office sales this past weekend, Shrek 3 is a winner!

Probably the popularity of the Shrek movies, isn’t just from the kids. These Shrek movies are entertaining for the adults too. At least the first two were. I haven’t seen Shrek 3 yet, so I can’t really comment on it getting the adult viewers. It’s a great way to make a movie. If you can find that line that will attract the kids, while keeping the adults interested. Then you have a great foundation for making a movie that many will see. If you have never watched any of the Shrek movies, then go out and pick up the first one today. It doesn’t matter if your 9 or 99, you will fall in love with the green ogre. Shrek is truly a movie for the whole family to watch.

Freezing Corona Beer

Well this is a neat little trick I saw. Not sure exactly how it works, but I think I have an idea. Apparently beer or especially Corona Beer, if you take it and put it in the freezer for a bit. Then tap the bottom of the surface with a good thump. It will start to instantly freeze. I can’t explain the sceintific matter of things, but it’s a nice trick, none the less. You might can have some fun at your next dinner party by getting some beer really cold, then knocking it around. See if you can make it get the instant freeze. Please be sure to let me know how it worked out for ya!  

 

Brokeback Kitchen by Jordan Crowder

The talented Mr. Crowder did a short film that is titled Brokeback Kitchen and it’s a lot like another popular movie that had a couple of cowboys that got friendly. Brokeback Mountain is a film that got a lot of attention drawn to it, by the scenes in it that involved a couple of guys that had feelings for one another. Now Jordan’s film puts a twist in it and he displays his own version at YouTube.

Brokeback Kitchen by Jordan Crowder

Too funny!

Now that is just one of the many short films that Jordan Crowder has on display. His short films are all put together so nicely and you can see in Brokeback Kitchen that it looks just like the trailers for the big Hollywood movies. It’s just a matter of time until Hollywood does snatch him up and he’s in L.A. producing movies for all of us to go and see at the theaters.

There are still a lot more videos I am going to put up of Jordan Crowder, so stick around and see the multi-talents of Mr. Crowder.

Picture of the Year

2007 Picture of the Year

jm-blog-photo-one.jpg

After all the votes were counted, this is what people voted as the Picture of the Year. This was done by the Today Show on NBC. This photo sparked a lot of controversy, but you can just look at the picture once and know the message behind it. I assume the woman didn’t lose her car keys and is probably grieving over a husband that got killed in Iraq or Afghanistan. I don’t know any truthful details about this photo, I am just assuming it’s her husband. The deceased person may be a relative, neighbor, co-worker or just a family friend. I think most see that picture and determine its her husband and he probably lost his life; while fighting the war on terror.

Our troops are losing their lives everyday on foreign soil. Its important we never forget their sacrifice and we remember them and photos like this. There’s too many politics being played out and we debate everyday if we should be in places like Iraq. I think we should support our troops more and work more as Americans instead of Democrats or Republicans. Let’s never forget all the troops that have died over the years and those that died in 2007. We will probably have deaths to deal with in 2008 too.

The death toll was down in the month of December and hopefully that number continues to decline. Some think Iran is a big part of the decline and they may not be training militants on their side of the border. We need all the help we can get and even if we don’t see eye-to-eye with Iran, we hopefully can continue to expect them to help us in the fight on terror. I hope this women finds comfort that is in the picture and all the women and children can find comfort, that have lost parents and loved ones in the war on terror.

Jeans For Kids

Schools have been ringing their bells recently for all the kids to get back to school. Most of the schools are back now from their short summer vacations, that always fly by too fast. Shopping for all the clothes and making sure your kids have all the latest fashions can be tough. Sometimes just getting the kids jeans can be hard to do, because you’re trying to get the size that fits the best, but it also has to be in-style with your kid’s taste.

Now when you mention style, it normally means you are going to have to pay more. Having the jeans that cost more than the other kids are wearing is one way kids today pick their fashions. If you would like to get a pair of jeans that are hip and cost a little over $100, then check out some of the ones listed with the Rock & Republic name. It’s a great looking pair of jeans and has all the qualities that make these jeans cool in school today. Your little ones will love you for it; if you can afford some of these higher price jeans for your kids.

Maximizing your sites reach

There are a many sites that offer free link popularity checks for your URL. Why is it so important to have sites that link into you? Google and other search engines appear to be placing more value on links that are coming into a site, than they used too. It used to be that optimizing keywords and enhancing your meta tags would help. While the keywords and their placement is still critical I have seen articles that meta tags may not hold that much weight. Remember though that you want to be linked too quality sites, so if you are linking to sites that have been blacklisted by Google and other search engines, you will only hurt your chances of getting ranked higher in search engines for your keywords and topics.

Considering the many options that are available the two best we have found to increase link popularity are getting others to write about your website or service, or creating a blog about your website and products yourself. Search engines love blog type content as long as it is unique and updated regularly. Blogitive is one such site that allows advertisers to find bloggers to write about their services or products. In this growing demand for consumer generated media, there is definitely a rise in these types of offerings. It allows the advertiser to have keyword rich article written about them and helping to create content and links that will ultimately help them in their goal to be at the top of search results.

Banking Needs

When you open up an account at a bank, be sure you know all the things they have to offer. Check on the savings account interest rates, what you will pay for checks, and of coarse all the fees that are associated with your banking account. Learning all the little details, can help you select a bank that is designed better for you.

If your looking for a savings account that you can put money into, and will draw interest. Make sure you have the money to spare. Your savings plan won’t last long, if you just put money in, and then take it back out in a short time. So take money that you don’t need, put it into your savings account, and forget about it. Let interest and any more future deposits that you might make, will help it to grow to something nice.

Some of Co-operative Bank’s accounts may be ideal for you. They have current accounts and offer it in different ways. You can get a Privelege Account or a Privelege Premiere Account. The Privelege Premiere Account offers a few more bells and whistles to it. You will get a discount on loans, and a higher interest rate. So making the upgrade to the Premiere Account might help save or earn you more money in the long run.

You can be assure that Co-operative Bank does work under the ethical policy. At the bank, they do recognize that their impact, through the provision of finance and banking services to a wide variety of business customers, can be more far-reaching and profound than the direct impact of their actual operations, so they have put measures in place to ensure that this impact is managed. Customers have seen this as a postive move. 97% of the customers now, do like having the ethical policy in place. So the bank does operate with concerns that some other banks might not have.

Monday Night Football

Tonight is a big night for the Indianapolis Colts and my fantasy football team. I’m losing by about 100 points right now in my fantasy football league and need Peyton Manning and Maurice Jones Drew to have a big night in Monday Night Football tonight.

The Colts will be playing the Jacksonville Jaguars in the game tonight. I have 5 players playing for me tonight, but Peyton Manning needs to have a great night for me. His stats are the one that can help me the most. If he has a big night tonight, my fantasy team still has a shot to win. My next biggest star would be Maurice Jones Drew for the Jags. If he can score a couple of touchdowns and get close to 100 all purpose yards, I like my chances of winning in fantasy football this week. My other 3 players I have playing tonight are defensive players and they probably aren’t going to help much, unless they get an interception or take a fumble recovery for a touchdown. Bob Sanders for the Colts and Mike Peterson and Sammy Knight for the Jaguars are my three defensive players. I figured as a group they can collectively get me 25 points for tonight. I would hope Maurice Jones Drew could get about 25 points, leaving Manning to have a big night and would have to produce over 50 points. If these 3 things happen, I can  join a log jam for the playoff spots in my fantasy league.

Coaching Little League

I just got back from my nephew’s baseball game. It’s funny to see how different coaches approach their little league teams. Some coaches it’s about fun, and they don’t care if they win or lose. Then some will win at all cost. Which winning can be fun, but the whole team may not share in the pleasure.

It’s important that coaches keep one thing in mind. It’s the kids! They should always come first. Same goes for parents too. Some parents are too involved in the score, than what’s going on. Coaches need to hear the imput from the parents, and take that in consideration. It’s also true, that parents have to let the coaches coach. It’s a two way communication route that needs to be open both ways. Closing down one of these ways, can later lead to an ugly situation.

Now when it comes to winning, and having fun. It has to be done with a balance approach. Your not going to make everyone happy, so don’t try coaches! Just let the kids know you are trying to win, and are making decisions to try and accomplish that. At the same time, make sure everyone plays, and is involved. Having the guy on the team that never says a word, only gets to play part of the game, is probably not having that good of a time. Give that player confidence, and find ways to work with him or her. Yes, it’s all about having fun, but seems like winning is always the best fun!
