Halloween falls on a Friday this year- woo hoo! If you happen to be so wrapped up in work, or life, or lack there of, and did not notice until the last minute that Halloween fell on a Friday, thus allowing you to party-harty (drink as much as you like- you’ll be wearing a mask hiding the true identity of any alcoholic related mahem) all night long, and forgot to purchase the perfect costume, don’t worry- we have your back.
Below, you’ll find a list of great Halloween costume ideas fitting every budget, body-type, and personality. You can thank this site for your blue ribbon in Best Costume.

Ladies, you can avoid parties you'd rather not attend.

is never seen on the show!

Remember the Wasuuuuup guys from the old Budweiser commercials? I don’t know how you could forget, considering it was one of the most popular ad campaigns ever. People even still yell Wasuuuuuuup! sometimes when I call, sadly. Anyway, have you ever wondered what happened to the guys from those commercials? Watch the video below and find out. This short film is hilarious 😀
Whether you’re a Democrat, Republican, or Undecided, I know you’re tired of the smear campaigns. Especially now that the elections are right around the corner. I for one, can’t wait for the elections to be over with already, because I’m plain sick of the commercials, junk mail, and random phone calls.
This is where StopTheSmears.com steps in. Stop the Smears hopes to play a role in exposing the methods and goals of the people who smear Democrats, so that the people of America can make their votes based on the real issues.
Stop the Smears actually only fights back against smear campaigns against the Democrats, but I looked around for a site in similar fashion to this for the Republicans, but it only came up with John McCains site. Obviously that site can’t be trusted. One site that I do actively follow that pulls out the facts from both sides though is FactCheck.org.
I recommend visiting both of these site and study them hard before you vote. Unless of course you voted early. It’s still good to know the facts, even if you did vote though.
There’s a new Christian site on the internet gaining in popularity quickly, but this one is a whole lot different than any other Christian website you may have seen in the past. Christian Nymphos is a site basically designed for women of Christian faith, obviously, but they’ve also been gaining a following of men as well.The site is safe for work, so don’t be afraid to click the link.
The site contains articles and posts all from women who have excessive sexual desire, but they all stick to the rules set forth by their religion, which is that sexual relations should only occur between a married couple and that same-sex and premarital sex relations is not tolerable.
Reading some of these posts on the site really is quite interesting and I think it’s great that these women have such sexual desire for their husbands. It’s very healthy and I’m sure it helps keep their marriage going strong. They talk about everything from sleeping in the nude to different types of sexual positions. It just goes to show you that even a strict Christian can have fun in the sack, as long as you’re her husband of course.
The future is told in this video and it certainly is a bleak one. John McCain has taken his seat in the White House and Obama’s loss is traced back to one voter. Only one voter determined the fate of the United States, and that man is Joe the Plumber. That’s right, the Joe that everyone feels like they know, didn’t vote. Watch the video below to learn more.
If you’ve ever wondered about the kinds of people who live near you, there’s another site out there that’ll get you stressed and frightened for yours and your childrens’ life. As if we need more worry in our lives right?
Felonspy.com allows you to enter your home address, or any address for that matter, and it’ll place markers or pinpoints where someone who’s been convicted of a felony currently lives. It also provides First and Last name, Age, and what they were convicted of.
To be honest, I don’t let things like this get to me. People who have made bad decisions in the past are everywhere and you just have to deal with it. I just think that taking a look at the people who live near me and reading about the horrible things they’ve done is interesting and entertaining.
I would assume that all of these people have done their time and have been rehabilitated anyway. They are out there free, because they’ve proven to the system that they can be a beneficial part of society… many of them anyway.
I envision, when I imagine Hungary, a dark, gloomy, depressing atmosphere. Filled with dark fog, cobble stone roads, and hunched-over men and woman slowly dragging along the walks. It’s really not a very pretty picture that I imagine. What do you see?
Hungary has one of the highest suicide, depression, alcoholism and early death rate in the world. Of course there are many theories, fables and tales explaining the phenomena, one very interesting song explains it pretty well.
Gloomy Sunday, written in the 1930s and is still played today, talks of depressions and suicide. The lyrics are dark and bleak-
Let them know that I’m glad to go
Death is no dream
For in death I’m caressing you
With the last breath of my soul
The song, Gloomy Sunday, is also known as the “suicide anthem.” The song, according to legend, is cursed and whose ever ears takes it in, are haunted with voices encouraging to kill themselves.
In my opinion, the song itself (without the lyrics), is quite a beautiful one. You can hear the song with the lyrics here, sung by Billie Holiday.
You don’t normally think of the word “fashionable” when you think of old people. The first thing that comes to my mind is light blue chinos and a matching dress shirt. Or for women, a pink shirt and black stretchy pants. This is of course a stereotype though, as the blog, Advance Style will show you.
The creator of the site, Ari Cohen, has stated “We have started a blog of our own that documents street style and fashion of the mature and wizened. Our aim is to take photos of elders with a unique sense of personal style that has developed with age.”
You really have to check it out. I never realized it before, but our elders really know how to dress sharp. It’s fun seeing what a different generation considers classy too. Don’t get me wrong, it really is classy, it’s just different than what the younger generation wears. We’re kinda bland actually.
Ever feel a little down because you couldn’t fully participate in a conversation due to your… uh- lack of knowledge? Well first off- tsk tsk- you should of paid more attention in school. Second of all- luckily for you, many people felt the same. So many, in fact, there’s a website out there just for doltish souls like you.
Smugopedia is a collection of opinions on topics- simple enough for you to understand and recite at the watercooler, but sumptuous enough for your fellow colleges to hang onto every word. Enjoy the haughted feeling you get when you see the unsure inadequate look in their eyes!
I got a couple of kickass dancing videos today. Not too long ago, my girlfriend became extremely interested in dancing, whether it be Ballroom, Interpretive or Breakdancing, ever since the latest season of So You Think You Can Dance started, so I’m sure she’ll appreciate this post. So which video do you think is best. I say #4. That one is freakin’ awesome.
An amazing group of five people popping. This was a really fun performance to watch.
This is my favorite by far. It’s a must watch and it’s pretty short so it won’t take up too much of your time.
