Stuff that is awesome.

UFOs!

It seems very recently I wrote about aliens and whatnot, and here it is in the news. Blink-182’s co-founder, Tom DeLonge, speaks up on E.T. and his beliefs, as well as his crazy involvement with the Government and how he’s on their watch list.

He also seems to have an “I’m smarter than you” attitude in the entire article. Just because he is doesn’t mean he has to flaunt it. Especially when he drops bombs like this one.

“I don’t think we’re working underground with aliens. I don’t think it’s like that, like some dumb conspiracy theorists think.”

Us dumb ones, we’ll put our aluminum foil hats on our heads and go to our mother’s basements and await the gathering. We’ll just leave it all to you smart fellers to save our hides.

It’s a pretty crazy read, aside from that, and I think he’s on to some shit. Check it out, and know that it might sound crazy, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t, or couldn’t be, true.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2

If you’re a fan, you should know by now that the sequel is coming out on February 20th, 2015. Just six days from now. I’m stoked. I watched the trailer just a little while ago, and got so pumped I had to go watch the original again. When I did, I started noticing things I hadn’t noticed before. These things may have already been noticed by you or someone, I’m sure they were. But if not, then maybe I’m pointing something out that others didn’t know. Either way.

First, if you haven’t seen it, check out the trailer for the sequel.

And then I watched the first and immediately realized something. When Adam and Nick go to visit Lou in the hospital, Lou tells them again that he didn’t try to kill himself. But if he had, he’d be excellent at it. “Shotgun to the dick!”

In the trailer for the sequel he gets shot in the dick by a shotgun. Looks like he’s probably the one who did it. To himself.

Tater Tots Kill!

Recently (just now) my wife asked me to Google if it’s okay to microwave tater tots. So I did. I saw one article that said how to, so I passed on the info and she went to work. Then I saw a Yahoo Answers thing asking the exact same thing, so I thought it would be fun to see what other people think. They all agreed, microwaving tots is a great way to bypass waiting 20 minutes.

And then I came across this blog, (Love) Notes To Self, and read an awesome piece about how tater tots almost killed her family, titled, Tater tots nearly killed my family – don’t let them kill yours, and I think you should go read it because it’s hysterically tragic. And miss Love has a new follower. I can’t wait to read more of her stuff.

In the meanwhile, go get some tots and check out her awesome stuff.

Product Review: Vivitar DJ Mixers

Recently on a trip to Walmart I saw a pair of headphones in the checkout line. I was interested, because I’m always up for a decent pair of headphones that aren’t ear buds, but I didn’t get them. I kept thinking about them and finally decided on my next visit to get a pair. They were under $5, so what the hell, right?

By the way, to whoever popularized ear buds:

Despite there being many different colors, I picked black and quickly went to my destination to try them out. They plugged right into my phone, had a decent range on the cord (4 feet), and they were comfortable on my head, as well as around my ears. When not in use, they fold up perfectly and fit just about anywhere.

I’ve had many sets of headphones over the years, I did work in radio after all, and I’ve had some that hurt my ears after wearing them for too long. The ear pads either weren’t big enough or they just fit weird.

I didn’t get that with these, and I paid a whole lot less for them than any other pair I’ve ever owned. Not only were they comfortable, but they also helped to silence outside sound as well.

Karma Works Like That

I’ve told you before how Karma is my religion. I believe in it, I trust in it, and yet I’m always surprised and touched when it comes around. I can understand how people feel that way about “God” and “Jesus” and “miracles.” Same thing, different name.

I get that feeling. I really do. Lately I’ve been in a giving mood. Maybe it’s the holidays, maybe it’s just how I’ve been feeling, which has been good, by the way. Yeah, I’ve been feeling good lately.

A couple of weeks ago I found myself hungry late night and because it was late night there was nothing around that was open except for a White Castle. Sure I could have gone farther, but I didn’t really want to. I hated that I had to leave the house to begin with, but we had no food here to eat.

I went to White Castle and placed my order in the drive thru. When I got to the window to pay, I noticed there was someone behind me placing an order. So I decided to cover their order too.

You know what? It made me feel good. It was a random act of kindness that I didn’t have to do, nobody prompted me to do it, I just did it. And it felt great. My wife and I don’t have much money, ever, and that person’s order wasn’t much anyway, but still, to do something nice for someone I didn’t know was awesome. Hopefully, it made their day.
