Websites to Check Out: Pinterest.com

You know that potential donut website I wrote about in my last post? I’ve retired that idea in favorite of my new addiction….a site called Pinterest.

What does this have to do with me giving up on my donut idea? Well you see…it’s a site that lets you curate your own boards (IE galleries) by clicking on a “pin it” button in your browser’s toolbar that lets you immediately send any image you come across on the interest to your own Pinterest board.

Dear Diary… Independence Day, 2011! Red, White, Blue, and….Green?

There’s my clever little title…hinting towards the fact that I saw Green Lantern on this fabulous holiday.

Tis a day of celebration and freedom. Some people enjoy fireworks the most on July 4th. Some love the time spent with family the most. Me though? I enjoy the annual party at my friend’s mansion…and a solid movie at some point is the cherry on top. This year, though, I actually also enjoyed watching fireworks on top of those two things. What? I actually watched fireworks? Yep. It marked the first time I actually watched July 4th fireworks in about over 4 years. I kid you not. I call this the, “I grew up on Disney World” effect. Meaning you better blow my freaking socks off to impress me when it comes to fireworks.

Here are 14 commercials that you’ll hate so much, you’ll actually feel bad for the people and companies who made them…in a, “Wow, you’re a really terrible person, aren’t you?”… kind of way:

Filmkritik: X-Men First Class Review (aka Magneto Origins)

Disclaimer: “Filmkritik” is German for, “movie review.”

Wait….what?  Magneto Origins?  Well you see, before X-Men First Class got green lit, Magneto was set to star in his own origin story, just like Wolverine did a few years ago.  Thankfully though, that ended up not happening.  Unless, that is, this type of movie is your cup of tea….

Oh gosh...make it stop. Please.....make it stop....
