This Year’s Halloween Fail Compilation: Thanks For The Memories

November 1, 2017 in Commentary, Entertainment, kids, Review, Society

So many people try hard on Halloween. They go all out in when it comes to decorating their house, throwing the best parties, and wearing the most awesome costume. Then, there are these guys.

They tried. You have to give them that. But, they missed the mark…just a little bit. Some people just don’t have it in them. There is a line between idea and reality. Some people can take an idea and put it into reality. Some people think they can, but miss terribly.

Either they aren’t very creative and that happens, or they just don’t have the skill. That happens too! Not everyone has a creative imagination that comes with stepping up and doing Halloween in style.

Some people just didn’t have that follow-through. They had a good idea. But, implementing it wasn’t their strong suit. It takes creativity and artistic ability to pull some things off and not everyone has those things.

That’s why so many people just go to the store. They have everything there. They already have the costumes and the masks. They already have the decorations. Just do that if you find yourself on this list or in the video at the end.

Everyone loves that you gave it your best try. But, hang it up kid. You don’t have to be the best at everything. Just stay in your own lane.

That’s Close Enough

This T-Rex Race Will Have You Rolling

October 31, 2017 in Comedy, Commentary, kids, News, Review

When people get together, there’s no limit to the things they can come up with. We spike our watermelons with Vodka for crying out loud. We are very interesting people.

Of course, the T-Rex costume is one of those great ideas. When you watch someone walk in it, you have to laugh. It looks funny and it’s the greatest thing ever.

So, how do you think you’d react when you see a whole bunch of them running across a bridge? You know you’re going to roll. It’s great times a whole bunch of great.




In Nashville, a whole bunch of kids dressed up as T-Rex got in line and ran across the bridge. They ran through the streets even, stopping traffic and having walkers wondering what’s going on. Could you imagine having a T-Rex stampede coming at you?

That’s enough to freak anyone out. It reminds me of people dressed up in those huge Sumo Wrestler costumes. One push the wrong way and you’re on the ground rolling around with absolutely no way to get up. It’s great fun for friends who want to head out to the yard and blow off some steam.




You can definitely get some great Youtube footage from that. If you are at a loss for your next Youtube video to go viral, get a couple Sumo Wrestler costumes and walk around town. Wrestle in the middle of a busy street. Of course, you’ll stop traffic. But, I dare anyone not to laugh. If people don’t laugh, they need to slow their lives down and take a minute to start enjoying stuff again.

Or better yet, get all your friends to dress up in T-Rex costumes and storm the town. That will bring smiles to the faces of everyone you see.

Little 3 Year Old Takes On Huge Raging Bull Ride Like A Boss

August 9, 2016 in Comedy, Commentary, Entertainment, kids, Sports

It’s the moment every cowboy dreams about. That time when they get on the bull and take it for a ride. The bull bucks and twists. But, the cowboy holds on tight for the full ride.

That’s what this little tyke is doing. He’s getting read to take off on a vicious bull ride. That is after he gets some instruction about holding onto the rope with one hand.

Then, he has to pull that rope tight. The bull don’t like that and that’s what the game is all about. Keep one arm in the air. Make sure the rope is pulled and hold it with all you got.

After the instruction, he is ready to go. The gate flies open and that’s when this little boy realizes what it’s all about. He’s in for the ride of his life.

Is Butt Chugging Cough Syrup The Grossest Thing On The Internet

December 18, 2015 in Comedy, Commentary, Entertainment, kids, News, Review, Society

I do believe I am actually trying to start a debate and, for no reason at all. Just to have something to do. Actually, that’s not true. I really DO want to know what the grossest thing on the internet is.

First of all, it starts with this video “Exploring the internet with Katie Notopoulos.” In it she makes the claim that what she’s showing you is the grossest thing on the internet. I have to admit, it’s pretty gross. You’ll see what I mean when you watch.

But before you do that, can we all just admit that Katie Notopoulos is gorgeous? Of course, she’s intelligent and funny too. But, I like acknowledging beauty when I see it and she has it. Okay, enough of that. Check out a new trend that kids are trying. It’s what Katie notoriously claimed was the grossest thing on the internet.

By the way, here are the images that were blurred out:

Take a closer look!

You know what, get up in there!

Now that we have established what Katie thinks is the grossest thing on the internet, I’m just going to leave this video right here for you. Let me know if you don’t think this might be more gross! Of course, I’d like to see what you got. So don’t hesitate to SHARE a video or a photo and pass this around to all your friends on FACEBOOK!

A Father’s Nightmare Comes True

October 22, 2015 in Comedy, Commentary, Entertainment, kids, News, Review

Fathers have many nightmares. We love our children. We don’t want them to get hurt. We also want them to make good decisions.

But, we can’t be there for them all the time. That’s the hard part. We have to eventually let go and trust them. While we hope that we can do that, we worry whether we have done the right thing or not. We worry whether or not we have done enough to prepare them for the world.

The problem is that sometimes our children have prepared themselves for this world. They went way beyond what we gave them. They took it to other levels and they grew up on their own. We have no idea the things they know and what they’ve taught themselves while we weren’t around.

This father’s nightmare, one of the many, came true when he happened to look in on her one night. The look in his eyes show the hurt we all feel!

SHARE this with your friends on FACEBOOK and let them know what this girl did to hurt her father!

DUDE! Don’t get mad! Just SHARE it…

A Little Girl With An Old Soul In Her Voice

June 23, 2011 in Celebrities, Entertainment, kids, Television

I think I’ve met my choice for American’s Got Talent this year.  If you remember, last year I picked Jackie and she went to the end.  That little girl belted out the Opera and I melted.  I absolutely adored her.

I’m pretty sure I’ve got my pick this year.  Sharon Osbourne said it best when she said that Anna was, “…a little girl with an old soul in her voice.”  I absolutely agree!

If you haven’t seen Anna Graceman sing, you should treat yourself. Oh, don’t bother.  I’ve got it right here.  Check her out and get on board!

 

Who Wins America’s Got Talent

September 7, 2010 in Celebrities, Entertainment, kids

No. I don’t have the inside scoop.  But, I know.  It’s one of those times when I just know.

But first, let’s cover the four top talents who will go on to next week.  I’m torn between five.  But, I know who wins.

One, Fighting Gravity and Michael Grasso are Las Vegas acts all the way.  Fighting Gravity can be compared to the Blue Man Group while Michael Grasso could be up with Criss Angel.

Two, Prince Poppycock could make his own show about anything at all he wanted.  He could do a show as awesome as Pink Floyd or Queen.

Three, Michael Grimm has to make it into the top four.  His soul voice tonight was exactly like the real thing.  Not a note out of tune.  They were all there.

image But, the one who wins is Jackie Evancho.  It’s hands down.  If it were about talent and not votes, she would win without a fight.  She has the best talent of all of them.  She is not even rough around the edges.  She’s polished and the fact that she’s ten just makes it even more phenomenal.  When she opens her mouth and this full grown adult’s voice comes out, it’s the most amazing thing I have ever seen.

So, those are my top five who will make it in the top four.  If I were to really narrow it down, I could take Fighting Gravity out of the running.  But, that’s only because I didn’t think their show tonight was as good as the others they’ve performed.

But, don’t worry about who is going to win.  It’s Jackie.  Besides, I want to be a part of making Piers Morgan’s dream come true.

Jackie Evancho is the ONE to Watch

It is phenomenal to watch such a young lady with such a mature voice.  It’s hers and you will be amazed.

The MP3 Player That Actually Works on Websites

May 16, 2010 in Entertainment, kids

flashmp3 I went through several MP3 Players today just to put my daughter’s favorite music on her website.  I went through a ridiculous number of scripts and codes that just wouldn’t work for one reason or another.

Placing code in the header isn’t hard.  It’s a simple copy and paste right above the </head> code.  Change all paths to your own paths.  Not hard.

Placing additional code in the body where you want the player isn’t hard either.  It’s a little more difficult because you have to make sure that you indicate the right path to your daughter’s favorite music.

But, I was literally stumped by several players that I downloaded today.  I followed their installation instructions and I got nothing.  That is until I found the one that does work and I wanted to share it because, ironically, it  was the easiest.

FREE Flash MP3 Player is the easiest.  In the others, I was providing url links to music that I had uploaded onto my daughter’s site.  This one actually allows you to create a folder, point the player there and it finds the music for you.  Easy.  One code in the header, change the path of the object.js, which you downloaded with the player and uploaded onto the server so you should know where that is.  Then, paste code into the body where you want the player and change the path of the folder where you put the music.  Publish the page and you are finished.  It comes with instructions and your daughter will love it.

By the way if you haven’t already had this thought, creating a website for your daughter (or son) is a great gift for birthdays or other gift-giving holidays you might have throughout the year.  Let me show you how easy it is:

 

Godaddy – Get your domain and hosting for less than $10.  With a monthly subscription hosting package of $6.99, you can purchase a domain for a year for $1.99.  Of course, you can save money with an economy hosting package for a yearly subscription.  It comes to less than $70 and that’s hosting you don’t have to worry about for a year.  So whatever your budget is, there is hosting that is right for you.

Filezilla – Get a FREE file transfer protocol program.  This is what is going to make publishing your child’s website a snap.  Your files on your computer are on the left side.  Open up your site on the right and upload the files.  Your site is up in seconds.

Free Website Templates – That’s right!  Free Website Templates.  That means that you can go through a series of templates for your child’s website and download one that suits you.  Put it on your computer in a special file marked with your child’s name and then start working with it.

Seamonkey – Get a FREE web page building program.  Once you’ve downloaded the template, you’ll want to start working with the pages to make your child’s own.  The easiest program to do this with is Seamonkey where you can pull up the file and see what the page looks like.  Change images.  Change links.  Change words and Go.

GIMP – Get a FREE image manipulation program.  In other words, it’s a robust program that helps you work with your images.  Get pictures of your child so that you can paste them all over the new website.  Even if you are one of those parents who are against posting your child’s pictures on the internet, get GIMP anyway so that you can work on graphics and other things the site might need.

Here are some hints for you:

1) When you pull up the index.html page in Seamonkey, it’s going to look weird.  You’ll have to switch to html mode and put the absolute URL for the style.css so that it looks like this:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://yourdomain.com/style.css"
type="text/css" charset="utf-8">

2) Then, open up the style.css in your notepad and make all the URLs absolute.  That includes everything that looks like this:

url(images/photo.jpg)

Change to:

url(http://yourdomain.com/images/photo.jpg)

3) Take the index.html file and make all the changes you need.  Change the wording and the links.  Change images.  Change background photos.  Then once you’ve made all the changes you are going to need, make a newpage.html file and use it for all the other pages you might need across your site.

4) To change photos, simply make your own the same size as the ones used on the template.  Name them the same and then upload them in the same folder where the others are stored.  Overwrite them and your new images are on the site already.
