Funny Team Names

Coming up with a team name is all about being yourself. Think of something and put your own comedic twist on it. Be random. The Gold Fish Bowlers for a bowling league is a perfect example and that just came right of the top of my head. I was looking around the room, saw the goldfish bowl and wala.

The next part of having a great team name again is creativity. Never use a team name that is out there. If you have seen it, others have as well and it will not be the ultra popular name you want it to be. For starters, never use the master batters because everyone has heard it. That name is also a bad choice because of its inappropriateness. The name that you choose reflects on yourself as well, so I would stay away from dirty names if I were you.

Below will be a list that will help you with ideas. I know this goes against creativity, but some people need the help. In this list I guaranty you that there will by the funny basketball team names that catch your eye and make you take a second glance at its greatness.

Like I said before, there is this list coming up of funny basketball names and they will make you the team that everyone talks about. This list isn't going to be just any list. This is going to be the hugest, most massive, most mammoth, titanic, vast, giant, very big list of funny basketball team names you will every see. (I cannot guaranty that.) It is a good size, but I would like to make it bigger so if you could comment or go to my website to add to the list that would be great.

P.S.S. Never make basketball about the money. Play for fun. That is the reason you started playing so keep it up. If you are playing for any other reason you should rethink why you are playing.

This Set Surely Has An Entourage Season 5 DVD

Season five blends so well with season four; one is just a continuation right into the other. And with season 5 out on DVD right now, you will surely want to pick it up and hang onto it.

If you are someone that has never seen this show here is the basic plot of the series. It is a hilarious series that revolves around an up and coming Hollywood heart throb, Vince Chase. The series follows the life of Vince, as his half brother Eric, manages his career to assist in his achievement of being in the Hollywood spotlight. However, it does not only follow the life of Vice, it also documents the lives of his half brother and his entire entourage.

Although I have been a fan of Entourage since the very first episode, this is by far my favorite season yet. First of all contains a certain amount of reality, which helps you stay focused on what is coming up next. Also, it is unlike many other shows at there today, because the story lines are paced perfectly and do not drag on. The show also has enough humor that you will keep laughing even after some of Vince's biggest failures. You do not laugh at him, however, you laugh because you can relate to what he is going through, and the struggles he is facing. Although serious at time, you will not find yourself in hysterics by the end of the show, it is a light hearted comedy, that gives you a look at the upbeat side of life. Of course another reason that I am in love with this series is for the gorgeous men that come on the screen week after week.

Season 5 was also a season full of guest stars and cameos. Some of my favorites include Bow Wow and Fran Drescher. Other appearances included Martin Landau, Kevin Pollack, Eric Roberts, Mark Wahlberg and T.I.

Entourage Season 5 on DVD is a must have 3 DVD set that will leave you laughing not only at the lives of these incredible characters, but at your own existence as well.

Retro Man, Halloween Costumes From The 70s Era

In the 21st century the 70s Halloween costumes is a favorite choice of outfits for those who like to dress up. For Halloween the retro look is cool; no wonder the hippie look for Halloween continues to be a popular option. When you think about big hairdo?s and go-go boots it is easy to see why 70?s Halloween costumes are a preferred style for those who like to dress up on this Holiday. Even though the 70s have long past, when Halloween comes around, you can still go retro and bring this decade back to life.

Hippies were a big, if not controversial, part of the 1970s. Bell-bottom pants and tie-dyed shirts were all the rage. Release your inner flower child with a totally groovy, hippie look. It can be fun to be one with nature, even if it is for only one night out of the year. Do not get too caught up in the lifestyle, though. If you plan to party with friends, I highly recommend you still bathe!

British music was popular during the 1970s as well. The genre became just as famous in the United States as it was across the pond. Consider Brit themed attire, complete with Sergeant Peppers-style jacket, either purchased or handmade. If you play guitar, why not practice a few Beatles riffs and bring your instrument along to really live the part.

If the hippy scene is not appealing, and you are not a fan of British tunes, consider going retro chic. Short dresses, bright colors, go-go boots, and a neckerchief will complete the look perfectly. Think of 70s Halloween costumes that resemble Daphne from Scooby Doo!

The reality is that there are many options to choose from when defining your 70s Halloween costumes. Strapped for ideas ? you can always mimic the style of famous, or infamous, people of the era. No doubt about it, if go-go boots and afros just don?t do it for you, there is the option of choosing 70s Halloween costumes that are more abstract rather than direct replicas.

The other thing to keep in mind is that you don?t have to use those obvious references, like the hippy, when coming up with your 70s Halloween costumes idea. Retro doesn?t mean that you can?t use a more obscure aspect of the decade when designing your costume. You could be a character from ?Star Wars? for example. Watching popular old movies can help give you some idea of which direction to take.

When you get the outfit together you?re not exactly finished. All 70s Halloween costumes should be taken to the next level by adding some acting skills to accompany the outfits. What were some common phrases or words that would fit your 70?s persona? You could even add a British accent if it works with the specifics of the outfit. At the very least, you may get some extra laughs.

Have fun designing the details of your 70s Halloween costumes; this is after all one of the most popular decades of the 20th century. With so many strong characters and personalities you?ll find that there are a myriad of options on how best to go retro with your costume. Don?t forget to add the extra bells and whistles of also acting the part. Doing these things can help you go beyond go-go boots and bell-bottoms; you can actually end up with some one-of-a-kind 70s Halloween costumes options. Edited by Hetsil Protage

Give Your Promotion Strategy An Advantage Through Lanyards

Businesses often end up allocating a lot of money on their marketing strategy. People identify with a company when they are exposed to its logo repeatedly through appealing merchandise. Irrespective of the kind of merchandising that an organization uses, the main purpose always is to form a positive impression on potential customers. Using lanyards is a very effective way of doing this.

One of the most well known and efficient forms of marketing at business events has been T-shirts printed with the name of the company. However, Lanyards are the newest addition in the repertoire of marketing tools. They are widely used nowadays, as potential customers often instinctively end up reading the business' slogan and name printed on them.

If made use of appropriately, lanyards prove to be very effective in corporate events such as industry exhibitions and conventions. The event can be made livelier be giving out lanyards to the attendees. By adding the name and date of the event on the lanyard, along with the company's symbol, you can make it serve the additional purpose of a memorabilia.

Lanyards hardly cost anything to the organization and they are lesser expensive than having t-shirts made for the occasion. They create goodwill among prospective customers and it is a known fact that they have a very good recall value.

Lanyards, apart from being highly inexpensive and impactful, also have other advantages as promotional items. You can use lively colours on them without irking people's eyes, which gives them a high visibility and draws attention. As they can be used for several purposes like displaying ID cards, they have a high functional value. Because of its varied uses, prospective clients can also take it home and find various uses of it, which gets visibility to your company for a long time.

Three Ways To Use Laughter To Get Through Life's Toughest Times

Ive never had cancer. But I can't tell you how many times I begged God to let me bear that burden. My son, a strapping 22-year-old junior at the University of Missouri, woke up with an aching chest that turned out to be a malignant tumor. Hes only a boy, I pleaded. Ive had a great life. Let it be me"not him.

After his diagnosis, much of what happened was a blur. Months of chemo. Surgery. Watching my son lose his hair, his appetite gone because everything tasted metallic, as all the while he wondered if he would have a girlfriend, a family of his own, a life

I'd spent twenty years studying therapeutic humor. I"d written about it, spoken on it, spent years of my life convincing colleagues, peers, and audience members that laughter plays an important role in our lives. Now, it was time to walk the walk. It was hard, I won't kid you about that. Finding something to laugh about during one of the toughest times in our lives sometimes required conscious effort. Yet sometimes, thankfully, if we would just let it, it would just happen. We'd find ourselves laughing at the situations life presented. Humor was a saving grace for all of us.

Sorrow has its hour. There were many tears. But joy has a claim as well, and there was laughter too. Lots of laughter.

My son has always been lucky in his friends. David's roommates provided him with great support and camaraderie, dubbing him "Captain Cancer" -- the superhero no one wants to be. One roommate, an artistic red-headed color blind Italian, begged to decorate my son's newly bald head with colorful markers.

He also found support at work. He worked as a bouncer at a local bar. The man he worked the door with was known as Tonto, and my son was The Lone Ranger. Following one of his treatments, a bunch of his buddies visited the bar. Afterward, David announced his new nickname, bestowed by his friends: Chemo-sabi!

Many patients long for humor during their healing process. Allen Klein, author of The Healing Power of Humor, surveyed patients who were terminally ill about their feelings about humor. A vast majority (80%!) wished to laugh more. They wanted more humor -- from the people around them. They also wanted the freedom to use humor themselves.

What is the best way to use humor? Ideally, humor is used proactively, to help heal the body and the spirit. Here are three ways to do this:

Play: We can create our own joy and wellness with play. Create a play list -- ten or more items that don't cost a lot of money that you enjoy doing. They can be simple, they can be personal, but they have to be fun. When you're feeling down, do an item from the list. This will make you feel better.

Make it easy to play by having fun toys around. Magic 8 balls, water guns, even the proverbial rubber chicken-- as long as it makes you smile, it'll work.

Surround yourself with pre-packaged laughs. Collecting funny books, magazines, movies and cartoons is a great way to keep the humor going. Ask people to tell you their funniest story or most embarrassing moment. Save jokes and funny stories. Spending time enjoying your collection can perk up even the toughest days.

Make Connections: Surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Spend as little time as possible with negative, downbeat folks who make you feel bad. Ask people to laugh -- and do your best to make them laugh. One laugh leads to the next!

To live well, you must laugh. That's one of the pivotal lessons I learned from my son. He's cancer free now, for four years. And he's also my inspiration: for his courage, his gentle spirit, and of course, his sense of humor. It's my honor to say that he's my hero.

Cherry Wood Floors - Show Off Your Home's Awesome Looking Floors

Everyone loves the simple look of hardwood flooring. Many people in fact are remodeling their homes and installing Oak Hardwood Flooring. There are many benefits that come along with using this specific grade of wood. If you are hardwood shopping right now, you may need to look closely at cherry wood flooring.

The price is going to be a very big factor when you are buying wood. Make sure that you know how much wood you are going to need. From there, you can easily determine the right price for your wood. Sit down and write down some numbers and then you can begin searching for the right place to buy.

When you are shopping for hardwood floors you should always be paying attention to the quality of the wood. The wood will be priced based on grade, which means the better the wood is, the more expensive it is going to be. With cherry wood, you are getting high quality, so you need to plan on paying a little bit extra.

Buying your cherry wood flooring is not going to be very difficult. There are plenty of places around your city that will provide types of hardwood floors. Just in case you do not find what you are looking for, there are plenty of ways to get what you need!

The next best place you should look for your cherry wood is the internet. There are so many online stores opening up right now, it should be easy to find the best deals. Make sure that you stop by an online flooring liquidator. This is going to be one of your best bets. These sites have some of the best prices when it comes to cherry wood. Most of the time the shipping will even be included! Make sure that you site that you choose has plenty of good reviews. Buying online can run you the risk of getting ripped off.

You should also look at the life of your Oak Floor. Most people who install hardwood floors on their own will be able to enjoy the floor for years to come. On the other hand, if you do not buy the right wood or materials, you could face a lot of different repairs. This is where it is important to do a little bit of research.

Take your time when you are shopping. You need to ensure that you know how to buy cherry floor wood and where. If you do not have these two aspects on your side, you could end up buying the wrong wood. If you are not careful you could end up buying fake wood for the real price. Make sure that you get with a professional so that you can find out how to point out a fake when you see one.

Making the Best Prank Calls Every Time

If you are a fun loving person, prank calling people can infuse a boring Friday with a load of laughs. Generally, while anyone can prank call, the more sophisticated your prank calling becomes the more fun you can have with the activity until eventually you are prank calling like a pro.

Before we examine the toolbox that a prank caller can use to achieve superior results. Let's look at the two different types of prank callers that one might typically encounter. The two camps can most easily be categorized by their levels of expertise.

The primary and most common kind of prank caller is the amateur. The amateur crank caller almost operated randomly. They know they want to have fun, but they are not sure how to go about the prank call so they usually call random numbers, say something silly, and hang up.

The more disciplined prank caller fits our second description. I call this the pro prank caller. This is person who plans the call beforehand and has the tools at his disposal to make the call go as smoothly as possible.

If you fall into the first category, but want to graduate into the second, what can you do? Follow these three guidelines for improving your prank calls.

Use the Technology

We are in the 21st century. Cell phones are built with caller ID technology and phone number databases can trace your number. Use a prank call service to disguise your phone number so that your target will not be able to ascertain who the call is coming from.

Don't Fall in Love with A Single Target

One mistake people often make is to call one person again and again. This is a rookie mistake. Once someone outs you in the call it is not a good idea to keep calling them back. They are onto the joke and all you are really doing is harassing them.

Use Your Creativity

The key to a good prank call is your imagination. Prank calling when inspired can lead to the best results. My advice is to use your imagination to prolong the call by taking your target around all the twists and turns of the joke before arriving at the punchline.

Keeping these three techniques in mind can help improve your prank calls dramatically. I believe that the only difference between an amateur and professional jokester is the discipline they use in crafting their prank calls.

Prank Gifts - Why Are They Always Popular?

It is usually really hard to come up with good gifts for people you don't know very well. The first thing to your mind might be to look for stuff the recipient will like and have practical use for. But how do you know what this person will consider practical? Another mistake some people do is to buy gifts that appeal to themselves without considering the taste of the recipient.

It is unfortunate then that what you might consider beautiful, practical and useful might seem ugly, unnecessary and not very useful to somebody else. I am sure that you get lots of completely useless (aside from being gifts you can give to other people) gifts from your family. Either books by my mothers favorite authors, kitchen stuff from my grandmother or car related stuff from my brother, all this is wildly pointless for me even if it might be very useful for them.

The thing with gifts is that most people already own almost everything they need. Of course you could get them something they really want instead, but those tings are often very expensive and not very realistic to get. Many young men would like a sports car, and even if the whole family pooled together enough money to get it there is still the problem of insurance, storing space in winter and so on.

So if we ruled out practical gifts, what is left? Gifts that invoke some kind of memory or positive emotion. This is why souvenirs are so popular even though they often are cheesy, pointless or even plain ugly. They invoke the memories from the trip. In the same way a nicely framed picture you got from your partner might invoke happiness every time you see it.

It is here that I will recommend the gag gift or prank gift. At first glance gag gifts are usually cheap throwaway things, but imagine if you can find a perfect prank gift that will have everyone at the party laughing about it for hours? Of course this gift will be better remembered than all the socks, cookbooks, money envelopes and other gifts taken together. And its not like a gag gift is very expensive, so you can always just give one away together with a "serious" gift for an unbeatable combo!

Downloading TV Shows

Missed watching an episode from your favorite television show? Then fret no more as there are a lot of ways to catch up on what you missed. The easiest solution to the problem you have is very simple: download free television shows from the Internet, and watch the episode you missed as many times as you desire

While it is very easy and highly possible to find and download a specific television show and specific television episode, there is a very high likelihood that what you are actually downloading is illegal. And in addition to the legality issue at hand, a lot of those free downloads readily available on the internet come with a lot of adware that could slow down or much worse, corrupt your computer

Certainly, there is a lot of buzz and interest in downloading television shows. Some episodes of popular television series like "Lost" and "Prison Break", for instance, hits millions and millions of downloads for every episode. And while these figures are worldwide statistics, it is very interesting to take notice that the numbers simply match with the average number of television viewers in the United States

When you consider the expenditures of buying popular television shows or when you consider how much cash you could shell out on DVD rentals you may actually begin to speculate if there is indeed a cheaper way of getting a copy of your favorite television shows. Look no further as downloading from the net is definitely the answer as long as it is done in the legal way

There are several TV download services that offer legal downloads at an exceptionally reasonable price. Instead of being charged to download a full season of one television show for instance, they offer you a one-off membership fee to download specific episodes instead of one whole season. This scheme of payment allows access to a huge database instead of just one television show

The greatest part of the whole bunch is that downloads are a lot quicker than other ways to procure television shows. Downloading TV shows legally in now very much accessible to all

You Have to See The Set It Off Movie

Stick up a bank? Sure, why not. And the Set It Off movie cast was selected perfectly to imitate four girlfriends who, after being messed up by the system and have nothing to lose, decide to get into the bank robbing industry.

The Set It Off movie Cast includes a HOT Vivica Fox as Frankie, who was recently fired from her bank-teller job for a real BS reason and is pissed at society. She gets to kick some major bootie in this film.

Kimberly Elisa plays Tisean, a single mother that has lost her son to child welfare until she can come up with the money she needs to pay for child care while she cleans offices.

Queen Latifah plays Cleo, a raucous, pot-smoking lesbian, who is continuously up for messing around.

And super spicy Jada Pinkett plays Stony, who is in shock after the cops murder her brother in a situation of mistaken identity, and she simply wants the funds to get out. 'I want to be somebody who doesn't have to do this crap,' she says.

So the girls obtain guns, learn to fire, put on wigs and sunglasses that make their bad old selves look like youthful Tina Turner clones, and set off into the bank-robbing business ' they experience success, which certainly leaves them wanting more.

Set It Off is funny, action packed, smart and witty. The group of four four act a wacky Godfather riff, and Cleo, swaggers and whoops ' she's a lofty, noisy, outrageous bundle of walking black female. In the beginning, the heist business is only a way to get elsewhere, but as their greed overtakes their better common sense and their chief pursuer ( John McGinley) closes in on their fantasy world, realty sets in and sends the show in a tragic direction.

If you're looking for a film to watch with your girlfriend or boyfriend, the Set It Off filmis perfect! Both men and women will like this film Men will love the action and women will understand and enjoy the bond these four girls maintain and what drives them. Women (and perhaps a few men) will furthermore enjoy the subplot romance involving Stony and a banker played by Blair Underwood.

You can at the present get the Set It Off movie on Blu-ray, which makes it an astounding high-definition film watching experience!

The Set It Off soundtrack rocks and is a ideal fit for the film, featuring artists such as Bone Thugs N Harmony, Seal, Busta Rhymes, of course Queen Latifah and even a cameo by Gladys Knight in the song Missing You. Even if you don't like the picture, the Set It Off soundtrack alone is worth it. It's a fantastic compilation of music.

Fear of Funny: What Scares Us About Humor

Babies laugh, long before they can speak. Children laugh 300 times a day. But as we get old, as we age, something happens. We become more somber, more serious. We let go of the joy and laugh less -- remarkably less. The average adult laughs 15 times a day -- a 95% reduction from childhood's more carefree

Where does the laughter go? Why do we stop enjoying ourselves? Is life not funny anymore, once we hit thirty? Some people think it's because adult life is too full of stress and problems to laugh: what's funny, after all, about work and family and taking care of the car and the dog and the house? But humor can help with all of that. Experts regard humor as one of the most effective forms of stress relief available. So why aren't we laughing?

One of the reasons we don't do things -- any thing -- is that we're afraid. We're afraid of being bitten, so we don't pet the dog. We're afraid of being rejected, so we don't ask the pretty girl or handsome guy out. We're afraid of getting audited, so we don't underreport our income every April 15. Every action has a potentially negative consequence, and it's fear of those consequences that keep us from acting.

What are we afraid of when we don't laugh? Here are the top three fears, things that make people hold in the laughs -- even when they want to.

Laugh, and The Whole World...Wait, They're Not Laughing! While we often picture people laughing in groups, and treasure the times we laugh with our friends as some of life's best times, no one wants to be the only person chuckling. This leads to hesitancy, an overall reluctance to laugh. If you wait for someone else to laugh first, you eliminate any risk -- but if no one laughs, you're forced to keep your joy inside. And remember: just as you're afraid to laugh first, so is everyone else. This leads to very joyless days at work.

This is a grown up job, act like a grown up! College days and kidding around at the sandwich shop are far behind you: now you've got a grown up career, with grown up responsibilities. This requires being serious at all times -- which is too bad, since laughter can have positive effects on the workplace: lifting morale, building teams, increasing efficiency.

Concern over being seen as 'mean' stops many people, who are confused about the difference between therapeutic, appropriate humor, and the taunting, teasing, sarcasm that we first encountered in the school yard. Obviously, we should not be using humor to inflict pain; there is plenty to laugh at in this universe without targeting other people. Make yourself aware of the difference, and diligently practice the former. You 'll find you won't have to worry about the latter -- it will feel 'wrong' when you use mean spirited, negative jokes.

New Illness Baffles Authorities

After a troubling turn of events in Canton, Ohio, on August 9th, authorities have reported the spread of a new epidemic around the country. While there is not yet any kind of cure, medical officials are calling this a fever.

The tentative name for this outbreak is "Football Fever". While all symptoms are not yet known, some include face painting, wigs, and grossly enlarged hands that resemble a massive number "one".

Those inflicted with the illness supposedly insist upon spending Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and once in a while, Thursday, spending as much time in front of the television as they possibly can while watching football in an effort to control their symptoms.

One inflicted victim ("Bob") described the situation to us. While he had spent most of the summer casually watching NASCAR and baseball, he suddenly changed the station to his local FOX channel and before he knew it, he found himself suited up in a football uniform with his face painted.

The victim's neighbors say they saw this coming all year. Everything on his front lawn now resembles footballs, and he even went so far as to tackle a neighbor carrying a sack of potatoes. The entire neighborhood is alarmed.

While many will be concerned with trying to get their fill to feed the fever the CDC reports that within one month there will be football in full swing at every level and those affected by this disease should be able to find comfort. If the fever becomes uncontrollable it has been noted that by joining 100,000 or more at any of the major universities in the country will bring immediate relief.

The Surgeon General went so far as to say that there may be something wrong with you if you DON'T suffer from this disease, as he believes that anyone in mainstream society is much better off with the symptoms.

Well, football is back. It's going to be another crazy year and I can't wait!

Keynote Speaker for a Business Celebration

If you've been tasked with organizing an important celebratory event for your business, then one of the most important decisions you have to make is choosing the right keynote speaker. The keynote address is what sets the whole tone for the celebration to come, so it's important that the speaker is perfect. Since you're aiming for a festive and fun atmosphere to celebrate some company-wide accomplishment or something similar, a comedian can be a good choice for a Keynote speaker.

Using humor is one of the best ways for a person to build rapport with a group of people. On top of that, let's face it: no one wants to come to a business celebration and listen to a speech about sales figures or a motivational speaker trying to life them up to new heights. The whole point of the celebration is to have fun, and humor just goes hand in hand with that. A good joke makes people feel comfortable and at ease, and helps them to relax and enjoy themselves.

That's not to say that you should just hire anyone who can crack a joke. You probably don't want to go to a comedy club and ask a comedian that you liked to come speak at your event. While you don't want to have a speaker who will make things fun for your audience, it's important to remember that this is still a business function. It's a good idea to find someone who knows a bit about business, even they don't know too much about your company specifically.

It's also important to keep good taste in mind. Even the most liberal and forward thinking company needs to maintain some degree of professionalism. You don't want a comedian who is going to go and tell all kinds of baudy, inappropriate jokes. Optimally, you want someone who can make the group laugh while also providing useful and topical information at the same time.

It's no easy task, but there are actually a lot of funny men and women who focus on doing this sort of thing. These comedians have crafted perfect mixes of humor and business that keep employees entertained and informed at the same time. These speakers often have a bunch of preset topics that they can speak on. For instance, if your employees have been overworked and stressed by a recent deadline, there are humorous keynote speakers who specialize in teaching stress relief methods in an entertaining way.

If none of their topics work perfectly for you, then they can also modify their message to fit better with the goals of your event. You'll have to communicate with the speaker beforehand to make sure that your message will fit into their presentations. Fortunately, these people are usually very adaptable so it's not difficult to come to an agreement.

Of course there are always concerns of money, and some comedic Keynote speakers do charge significant fees. However, if you can find a keynote speaker who understands the art of comedy at a reasonable price, it's well worth it.

Moonwalk Origins

Here's something i found on youtube - the origins of the moonwalk

Every great aritst respects those that came before them, and one of the ways to show this respect is to learn from them. Michael Jackson did just that with Black Tap Dancers and populated the moonwalk, which was called the 'backslide' back then by Bill Bailey

Best Stand-Up Comedy DVDs

If you’re like me then you love to watch great comedies, be it stand-up comedy or movies in the comedy genre. I pretty much love everything to do with the likes of Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Jim Carey, Bernie Mac (RIP), Jamie Foxx, Eddie Murphy, Cedric the Entertainer and more. To me, these guys are the best stand up comedians and are without a doubt in the top ten stand-up comedians of all time – although I’ll have a tough time placing them

Needless to say, my favourite stand-up comedy DVDs features these comedians. If you’re after some laugh out loud funny s***, I’ve compiled a list of the best stand-up comedy DVDs that are a must have if you’re into comedies

Chris Rock - Bigger And Blacker – this is the second best Chris Rock stand up DVD, which sees him in top form telling jokes that hold some truth to them. Whilst some consider Bigger and Blacker to be his best, there is another that tops this -

Chris Rock - Never Scared – if you love Bigger and Blacker you’ll absolutely love Never Scared. This is Chris Rock at his very best! After watching this you’ll understand why he is respected and considered the most intelligent stand-up comedian by his peers. Chris paces himself the best in this show, performing for a solid hour and not slacking for a minute. Get this now! You’re guaranteed to be left in a great mood after watching this DVD

Dave Chappelle - Killin' Them Softly – some consider Dave Chappelle to be the funniest comedian of the current generation of comedians, and after watching this DVD you’ll understand why he’s been given this claim. He holds an unadorned technique in performing but times his jokes perfectly, and with a second-to-none delivery technique you’ll absolutely love this DVD

Jamie Foxx - I Might Need Security – “Hey Osama man, what in the f*** is your f***ing problem?” says Foxx impersonating Bill Clinton talking to Osama Bin Laden to prevent a war. Foxx is excellent at impersonations, and he displays it cleverly in this DVD. If you’re not familiar with Jamie Foxx as a comedian this is a perfect introduction to see why he is a triple threat entertainer as a music artist, an actor, and a comedian

Jamie Foxx - Unleashed - Lost, Stolen And Leaked – an appropriate title to Foxx’s follow up to I Might Need Security. He begins with a blast of jokes making you laugh from the moment he walks out. And as classic Foxx, he breaks out the piano towards the end of the show. Brilliant stand-up! Look out for his Bill Clinton impression. It’s even better than the one in I Might Need Security

The Katt Williams: The Pimp Chronicles Pt. 1 – this DVD single-handedly propelled Katt Williams to stardom! His sketches are on point, his timing is brilliant, and his jokes are second to none. This DVD is short – about 45 minutes – but definitely deserves to be amongst the top ten stand-up comedies as he is absolutely hilarious. Absolutely hilarious!

Def Comedy Jam - The Definitive Collection – ever wanted to watch your favourite comedians’ earlier work? Well with this DVD collection you can. Def Comedy Jam provided many now famous comedians with the opportunity to display their talent. Want to know why Bernie “I ain’t scared of you mother***ers” Mac was so loved? It’s all in this DVD collection

The Original Kings of Comedy – four of the best comedians front this very successful stand-up tour that was captured for DVD release by Spike Lee. Bernie Mac’s explanation of the word motherf***er alone is worth the purchase of the DVD

Eddie Murphy - Delirious – the first of Eddie Murphy’s two stand-up comedies. Eddie displays his talent supremely, making this and his other live stand-up show a favourite by other comedians

Eddie Murphy Raw – this, the second of Eddie’s live stand-up show cemented him as one of the greatest comedians

Richard Pryor - Live in concert – this DVD reveals why Richard Pryor is the King of Comedy. All comedians, including his peers (Paul Rooney, Bill Cosby) have studied Pyor’s work as to what makes a great comic, and a great performer. Your favourite comedians name Richard Pryor as THE biggest comedic inspiration in their career. See why for yourself with the DVD

I'm Dreading Watching the Terminator 4 Movie

I absolutely loved the first two terminator movies. I think they're one of the best movies ever made

When i heard there was going to be a third one i was all up for it until i heard James Cameron was not directing it. I began to warm to the idea of a female playing the teminator, and being the most powerful one yet. But lo and behold, Terminator: Rise of the Machines turned out to be a huge disappointment

Terminator: Salvation have been out for a while now and all the reviews i've heard of it have ranged from despicable to poor at best. I even heard a critic say it was even worst than Rise of the Machines

After hearing Chrisitan Bale's outburst a while ago i can't say i'm too eager to watch this movie. The trailer looks great, but i'm not sure if i wanna take the chance and pay to watch the movie. I don't want to be disappointed, you know?

here's the Christian Bale outburst

How to Upload a Video onto YouTube

YouTube is a video sharing website which allows users to upload and share videos with any and everyone online. This essentially means anyone can broadcast what they want, when they want – which is why Youtube’s slogan ‘broadcast yourself’, as well as its logo, has captured the imagination of millions since its 2005 creation

The possibilities that YouTube offers is phenomenal! Many people use the site as a means of driving traffic to their own websites. Others upload videos of themselves, or of an event they want to share with the world simply as online entertainment. Indeed, the broadcast of personal videos is quite addictive. People can subscribe to your YouTube channel and be notified via email whenever you upload a new video, and are able to comment on them and converse with you and others about your videos, and the videos of others

Before you begin to upload your video you need to ensure what you wish to upload is under 10 minutes and smaller than 1GB in size. If your video is over ten minutes you’ll need to edit it into parts less than 10 minutes. For example, if you have a 28 minutes video, you can use Windows Movie Maker to cut it into three pieces and label the pieces part 1of3, part 2of3 and part 3of3 for your viewers. You’ll also have to make sure the video is in an acceptable format. Video files in the .AVI, .MOV, .WMV, and .MPG file formats are accepted. Most digital cameras, camcorders, and cell phones use these files so you shouldn’t need to do any file converting

Once you have your video ready the process is as follows:

1. Click on the “upload” button on the upper right hand corner of your profile page
2. Click on the “browse” button and locate the video file you want to upload, select it and click on “ok” or press the enter key on your keyboard
3. Click on the “upload” button and the uploading process will begin. At this point you can add in the extra information to go with your video – the title, video description, video category and tags. Click on the “save changes” button once you’ve added these details

Once your file has been uploaded it will take a few minutes to process and will become ‘live’ for all to view

How to Buy a Webcam

Webcams are more than little handy cameras attached to PC’s that send images via internet. They enable you to share life events to maintain long distance relationships of all kinds. While it is a simple function, it pays to know a little about how the technology of broadcasting videos over the net works before actually procuring one

The first consideration you need to identify in considering the best webcam to buy is what are you intending to broadcast. And second consideration is the question on who will be viewing your content. These two matters will help determine the type of camera you need to use, the software needed to get installed and the internet connection necessary. Before you make a choice about the best webcam to get, it helps to decide exactly how you want to use the technology, in other words, what you are intending to broadcast. This decision will impact upon the type of camera you use, and how you use it

Your choice of camera rely on what you are intending to show. If you are planning to reach a large public audience, you will need a good quality camcorder or megapixel camera to capture the high quality images. If it is simply for seeing who is at your front door or for watching the kids in their playroom, then high quality images would not be necessary. If the webcam will be for outdoors, it will have to be weather proof and have sun and UV protection. Power supply availability and robotic requirements for movement of camera and lens focus are extra considerations

Of the things that must be thought of when considering the best webcam to purchase also are the number of frames per second and the image resolution. The usual webcam has up to 30 frames per second which can show normal video images. Resolution on the other hand is measured on the number of pixels per inch. But while high quality images require a high resolution, some high resolution images will not render better visual quality, but simply slower to upload and download. On the other hand, the more frames per second you require, the more bandwidth, memory and processing power is needed

In addition, there is a gamut of physical components requisite to make webcam work. Depending on the type of camera and the process which you want to broadcast the content to the Internet, you will need to incorporate video capture hardware in your computer

Lastly, you will need an Internet connection. You would need a modem for dial-up connection, or modem/router for a broadband solution. Logically the higher the video quality you want, or the faster refresh rate you want, the more bandwidth you will actually need. Keep in mind always that your internet connection would play a crucial role in webcam broadcasting

How to Copy Copyrighted Discs

Most DVD movies are ‘copy protected’ which means your disc burner software will not copy and burn them for you to keep as a back-up. Being unable to create a back-up of your purchased DVD is a bummer. If you’ve ever loaned a movie to a friend and received it scratched up then you know that creating a backup is quite essential these days

So, if you cannot copy a protected DVD, how do you create a back-up of it? Well, quite simply, you have to ‘rip it’

Just like there are programs that allow you to copy DVDs that aren’t copyrighted, there are programs that allow you to rip copy protected discs. Such programs allows you to extract all the content on a disc for storage on your computer as a back-up copy

The steps to ripping a copy protected disc are as follows:

1. Find a program that suits your needs. There are plenty of programs to choose from such as Rip Your DVDs and Quick DVD Copy
2. Once you’ve installed your software, open up the program and insert the DVD you wish to rip
3. Select the rip option you want. You can rip the entire disc, a certain scene, a particular part of a scene (using the time duration function), and you can even rip just the audio in the movie. The options are quite vast, which is what makes ripping a DVD quite fun. Once you have the settings you want, begin the ripping process. (Be patient, this can take some minutes!).

That’s it! Once the rip is complete, you’re all done. You now have the movie on your computer as a back-up

Convert your DVDs to IPOD format!

Is it me or has The Simpsons Gotten Too Mature?

Although i’ve always known about the Simpsons i only got into it about 4-5 years ago. Before that, it was just a show i knew about and watch whenever it was on television. When i really got into it, i loved it with a passion and would say wholeheartedly that it’s one of the greatest cartoons of my generation.

I have a problem with The Simpsons now though, in that it has gotten too mature. You know what i mean?

The first two/three seasons weren’t great. They were funny, but weren’t laugh out loud funny. But from season 3 onwards the show took on new heights. The gags were hilarious and the voices were on point. Each episode was on point! It was fantastic!

But now, after having seen season 20 in its entirety, i feel it has lost its innocent immaturity that made previous seasons 5 stars. It’s just gottn too mature! It seems like the head writers have grown up, or the new writers are not that funny. Whatever it is, the gags are just not there anymore.

I felt this way with season 19, which i thought was horrible – for a Simpsons standard (2½ out of 5), but i gave it a pass cause i thought the writers put all their energy into making The Simpsons Movie a just deserving of the ‘big screen treatment’. But come on guys, season 20 was just a poor!

I want The Simpsons i used to know of back on tv! Seasons 4-12 were all 5 stars to me. 12-17/18 were of good standards. But 19 and 20 were weak. And by the way, has anyone noticed that Nelson’s voice has changed since season 10? That’s what i mean by the show’s gotten too mature. His voice has a grouchy tone to it that makes him less funny when he speaks. I used to laugh at the idea of the little guy being such a bully with his boyish tone and bullish mannerism. Now, he sounds waaay too grown!

Come on Matt Groening and crew, get it together! The show’s soon gonna end, and that’s why you need the remaining seasons to be off the hook!

Go out with a bang! 5 stars all the way!

Gordon Brown Taught How To Smile

I've heard of media training but Gordon Brown looks like he's been taught how to smile. Big head Gordon [no offense intended] also does this thing with his lower lips where he looks like he's sick of the bullshit his damn self is spewing, lol.

i'm not the only one who thinks so. check out the video below

I love making fun of political leaders just like the next guy!

Eminem's Close Encounter with Bruno!

i really doubt eminem had anything to do with this. either way it was lol funny


Susan Boyle Hospitalised

Many people have seen her audition on Britain’s Got Talent show, or at the least know of her name. Whilst her audition brought many to tears at the spectacle of the (dare i say) ordinary, she’s now being tossed around the media circles with no real regards of her feelings

I say no real regards to her feelings simply because her name is being used as a way for people, and/or what they do to stay relevant. She’s the latest sensational reality star to sell newspapers, magazines, generate traffic online, and generate and/or maintain ratings on television and radio shows. Story after story, her name is spoken of regardless if the content is true or not – the latest being that she’s been hospitalised. Remember Jade Goody from Big Brother being tossed around the media circles as well? One week she’s a darling. The next she’s compared to miss piggy. Is Susan Boyle the new Jade Goody?

Her rise to fame was accelerated phenomenally. I actually thought she was going to win the BGT title, but was happy when Diversity was given the title. Susan’s now considered ‘Britain’s Got Talent Runner Up’, and the backlash and rumours have begun. Remember Susan, entertainers are sometimes built to be destroyed in the name of entertainment

i hope Susan has a good career in the entertainment industry. I no doubt believe she’ll make millions if she surrounds herself with the right people. She has a wonderful voice and a beautiful personality. In saying that, i also believe she’s going to be hated on, and be tossed around the media circle on a love/hate rollercoaster. I sure hope she’s not the new Jade Goody though

Relapse is a REAL Disappointment

i'm a huge eminem fan. his first three albums were great! i didn't check for encore cause i heard some tracks off it and really wasn't feeling it (except for rain man - that's my shit!)

i was really looking forward to this album, especially since i missed his last one..or two. but after hearing this i'm mad disappointed! his rhyme style is the same on all tracks. he doesn't even sound like eminem - he sounds like a local white rapper. in fact the only song he sounds right in is underground - and that ain't saying much.

this sog here, and his first single crack a bottle are really the only jawns i kinda like. have you heard 3am? bullshit right? well... that's pretty much what the album's like - same rhyme style and same weak ass hooks.

i can't begin to explain how disappointed i am over this shit. and i say that cause i'm a huge fan, but real is real, and this album here is his worst i've heard.

glad i didn't pay for it!

Rappers Get No Respect

Is it me or are rappers increasingly getting no respect from people? I know not everyone likes hip hop, and I accept that shit – a mudafucka don’t have to like it

Some people outside of the global hip hop community don’t like rappers. I’ve met a lot of peeps who stereotype rappers negatively. And when I say negatively I mean, they chat and/or think shit about rappers in order to use them as a REASON to justify to themselves why god should favor them, over rappers. They straight up ride on rappers. It’s not new, and in fact, it’s not just rappers that get this negative stereotype. What’s fucked up is stereotyping someone is ENTIRELY on the person who’s stereotyping, simply because it’s their thought. You could stereotype (think) some good shit, or negatively as a means to establish a reason (justify) why you’re better, or whatever. I don’t know much about Irish people but my stereotype (thought) of them is they can fight you all day and they never get drunk. And I say that with love

Rappers are what a person makes them to be – a person’s thought (stereotype). People outside of the hip hop community don’t respect rappers – and that’s whatever. You should focus on your community and not concern about others, right?

But I’ve noticed increasingly that people who love hip hop show no respect to rappers. They love a star. But don’t consider a rapper as nothing more than a moron. In other words, unless a rapper is a star – Jay-Z, P. Diddy, Nas, Timbaland, and the like – no one gives a fuck about him (or her of course)

If you don’t believe me, check the way a “local” rapper gets treated when he’s on stage at the next live event you go to. The audience don’t seem to give a fuck of his story or whatever he has to say

A singer on the other hand, (and I mean one who’s not a celebrity, or a star or whatever) is adored, especially when on a gig with a rapper

Rappers get no respect. I think a lot of rapper subconsciously know this, which is one reason (I know there are many) why they want to be celebrities. But where does this leave rap?

Pimping The Public

Personally, the word public to me means a place or space for everyone. This is opposed to a space, or place that is solely for a person, or a selected group of persons – which would make it private (claimed). For example, air is for the public. However, a country has its own air space which is agreed to be for that particular country. A pilot couldn’t fly into that country’s air space without permission or else there’ll be consequences. And as fair game it is agreed that every country has its own air space. This is respected

When you think about it, everyone is a public to or of something. For example, to my energy provide I’m a public so I get billed full price for the energy I use. However, the Managing Director of the company that provides my energy probably gets a discount, or even free energy supply. And if energy supply was running low it would primarily mean it is running low for the public – me, not the MD. I once got accepted to work for a telephone company as part of their sales team and was told that once I had signed up a number of clients, and had a team of my own I would get free phone service with the company – as part of the perks because I would then be one of them, in the organization, elite if you like. I passed on the opportunity but this is an illustration of what I’m saying. I don’t get free phone services because I’m a public to every phone company out there

Now let’s bring the entertainment industry into the equation. The public gets manipulated, influenced and conditioned to consume whatever is sold to us all for the prosperity of the industry – which is private. For example, I’m sure Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey are legally married (giving them the benefit of the doubt). However, I see that it makes sense for them to unite to flourish their careers. Nick was well known in certain circles but really needed mass exposure to build up his profile to be considered by adults (the ‘big boys in the industry’, the shot callers, the green-lighters). Mariah needed to be considered young and fresh, and what better way to be seen as young and fresh than to unite with a dude who’s considered young and fresh. Genius idea right? Hey it worked! Regardless of what anyone thinks they both have strong public profiles, which mean they are considered by green-lighters who need people with strong public profiles in order to sell a project – film, music, endorsements, and whatever

But anyway, that example aside, it seems to me that anything and anyone public is in a vulnerable position. The reality is if you’re not on the inside of something, or a member of something then you’re a public to it. The irony is that everyone is a public. I’m considered a public to someone or some organization, and a person or organization is a public to my life

Pimping of the public occurs when it is believed that because one isn’t amongst something that is claimed then they are not special, or elite. Claiming something (privatizing it) puts one or an organization in a detached position to then pimp the public. Everything is everything, except when it is claimed right?

Even though pimping ain’t easy, it really is

Yours truly, signing off,
