Ramblings of an improvident lackwit

Save yourself… and earn $100

29. March 2007 | Category Celebrity, Money

I love watching that crazy lady Suze Orman on PBS from time to time. She rants and raves at us like she’s rich… oh wait she is. But once in a while she throws us a golden bone. This particular book run of hers, she’s getting women (but men too) to start thinking for retirement.

With the SAVEYOURSELF one can start a retirement account with as little as $50/month for 1 year and get $100 bonus on the 13th month. Sounds like a lot better interest to me than the ol’ rich banker will give you up town. I’m in……

Oh, use code 701

Holy Bockfest Batman. It appears I have made a surfacing on another website! Yay me! Having nearly frozen to death at the 2006 Bockfest was not the only thing I accomplished that day. I also got the honor of gracing Schells’ Brewery website honoring the festivities. I really think it was the combination of having my best side facing the camera and the highly unique super, sweet Supersweet Feed Stocking Hat I donned for the occassion.

Wow, with this photo opp and appearance in state circulated newspaper, I could have this small ego-trip featuring ME go to my head.

In The Eyes Of The Ranger

Bestest Theme Song Ever!!!

“In the Eyes of the Ranger, the unsuspecting stranger,
had better know the truth of wrong from right.
‘Cause the eyes of the Ranger are upon you, any wrong you do he’s gonna see.
When you’re in Texas, look behind you, ’cause that’s where the Ranger’s gonna be.”

Man, was there a treat on TV tonight. Seems good ol’ Chuck Norris dusted off his 10 gallon hat and bought himself one of those new Dodge Ram Trucks. Ah, the memories.

Must have been a good 10 years ago, Norris came out with Walker, Texas Ranger that was all the rage of CBS Saturday nights, unless you count the even better Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman in the previous hour’s time slot. Walker was hot though. With his driving of his truck all over Texas, with the ever faithful Ranger Trivette by his side. Gosh and that Alex Cahill was some gal to have as a babe.

Nothing beat the awesome martial arts Cordell whipped out on those unsuspecting bad guys and the way he always got his man. And they always ended back up at C.D.’s place. Awwhh.

Too bad the movie tonight lacked most of the original cast of the TV series. But the same awesome storylines, action sequences and car chases were all still of that same magical stuff.


Apocalyptic Boredom

26. April 2005 | Category Celebrity, Observations

Having just got done watching The Day after Tomorrow, I really started to wonder if there could ever really be such a thing as a good apocalyptic movie. I still have the horror that was Deep Impact deeply imbedded in my brain, but yet I was drawn like a moth to the flame. That and the superb body of work the Jake Gyllenhaal is putting together. But the director was the same genius behind Independence Day and Godzilla. So suffice to say, I should have known it sucked, I think they even say that he director these other duds on the DVD case. Silly to ignore such warnings.

All these movies ever do is make the impending doom of the world’s imminent demise the only real story, but it’s so large and grandeous of a problem that everything else gets dropped or faked for the sake of the doom. Sure the end of the world we currently know it would be horrific, but can’t they try to entertain you at least. Indepedance Day at least attempted that and even the most memborable sinking of a commerical cruiseliner Titanic made for a decent movie, not to mention a huge payday for those involved.

And the awesome CGI work the gets generated by these apocalyptic doosies is enough to stop watching as soon as it plays out pitifully as well. Who would believe cartoonish wolves would be so troublesome? You almost half expect them to start talking as they so badly out of place in the movie.

This movie didn’t suprise me, but after hearing people said they watched it and didn’t feel like they wanted to gouge their eyes out with dull spoons, I gave it a chance. I don’t think this genre will ever get my attention again. It’s just that bad.


Poor Penniless Marshall Mathers

15. April 2005 | Category Celebrity, Music

Just heard a new ditty by Eminem on the ol’ radio, something of a nursery rhyme called Mockingbird. Some song about him growing up poor and having it so rough with things before becoming the most successful white rapper in history. (eat it Vanilla Ice)

see lyrics

And at the time every house that we lived in
Either kept getting broke into and robbed
Or shot up on the block and your mom was saving money for you in a jar
Tryna start a piggy bank for you so you could go to college
Almost had a thousand dollars till someone broke in and stole it
And I know it hurt so bad it broke your momma’s heart

I am amused by this. He’s got the brains to be so successful now, but he couldn’t make sense enough to put all that money someplace safe, say a bank? Silliness.

It also fits his poor image that I read about a few years ago, that when he was down and out in Detroit. His house was getting broken into and the guys stole his new playstation or something. Poor management of priorities as well. Guy says he was starving and penniless, but yet again someone can break in and steal things worth quite a bit of cash. Hard to believe.

Maybe him and all his buddies that always seem to go from rags to riches should fess up and tell it how things really are. Everyone’s got a sob story, just ask them. Except most people I know don’t go on to make millions off of such pains. Maybe they just suck it up and put their money in banks and don’t going buying things that are convienent to steal.
