December 28, 2007 by Joe · 1 Comment 

In respect to the new Aliens vs Predator: Requiem movie, I thought I’d offer up a little analysis as to who I think would win in a fight. I’d also like your output as to who would win, especially from fans of the series! I have yet to see the new movie, but after reading this review over at Film School Rejects, I think I’m going to take some time out to see it!

Alright, lets set some background on our two ferocious foes, listing advantages and disadvantages for each.. then let the battle begin! Read more

Women’s Hair Loss Movement

December 27, 2007 by Joe · Leave a Comment 

I realize that there are people with this condition, but I had no idea that there was a movement for this. While this is a paid post, I would write about this one still… maybe not on this blog though. Anyway, theWomen’s hair loss Project chronicles one woman’s journey through life while dealing with this condition at a young age. While this is a condition that is normally associated with men, it can also happen to women, and is even more devastating in that it is definitely not as common.

This site about women’s hair loss is gaining a lot in popularity and has even been featured on and a major Atlanta newspaper. Read on and support this woman… let her know that she does not have to suffer in silence, and there are many people out there who will support her.

Daddy’s Little Girl

December 27, 2007 by Joe · 3 Comments 

Before I get started on this post, I’m still looking for comments! Only a couple so far :-( I can tell from the site trackers that there are plenty of people visiting.. just trying to get you guys more involved as readers! It helps provide the inspiration to write more. It can be a drag if it seems like you’re writing just for yourself. Regardless, I hope that you are enjoying your time here!

Onto the content you’re all looking for… B*tchy customers! This one was a doozy, and it happened last Thursday. I meant to write about it sooner but the holidays crept up on me much quicker than I anticipated. Setting the stage… I was upstairs grabbing the posters that we needed for the coming weekend, so that they could be put up. (For some reason, people at my theatre can’t seem to find their movie without a poster of that movie in front of the entrance. Too hard to read the ticket? They actually get mad if you don’t have it.. go figure!) Anyway, I get a call down to guest services, letting me know that a guest had a pass that was invalid for I am Legend but she wanted to use it anyway. So I make my way downstairs, as I figure it’ll be a quick fix. Just explain the policy and the restrictions on the pass, she’ll buy a ticket or see a different movie. Simple.

When I get downstairs, there is no one at the Guest Services counter. I walk around, asking the staff if they saw anyone. Everyone says that they saw her walk in that direction at least. Then one of my employees who was in to see a movie let me know that she actually went into the movie. Great. The other manager and I proceed into the theatre to go look for the girl. I wasn’t expecting to find her, as the movie had already started, and it was pretty dark in there.

Scanning the crowd as I walk through the aisle, something catches my eye. Two girls who attempted to pull their hoodies over their heads and cover their faces. A bit suspicious, especially since it happened right after I walked by, lol. So I go up to them and ask to see their tickets (The girl who snuck in would not have one). One of them proceeds to pull out her ticket.. and the other proceeds to blow up on me. Ok.. looks like I’ve found her. I ask her to step out of the theatre so I can speak to her in the hall. She instead screams that I am embarrassing her and her friend. Ignoring that, I insist that they step outside, as I don’t want to cause more of a disturbance in the theatre than has already been created.

Once we’re outside, she proceeds to scream at me some more, about how its ridiculous that we wouldn’t take her pass, how she was told that it was just the first weekend that the movie was out. Trying to be reasonable, I told her that she could check the pass, and it would say that it’s not valid on “special engagements”, which are typically the first two weekends, not the first weekend. After explaining to her what a special engagement was, she said that its not her fault and she was going back in. I told her that there is no way she is going back in without a ticket. Of course, she has no money. But her friend does! Not good enough though, because she insists that she needs to go home to get money. Fine.. I’m ok with that.

But she wants me to pay for her cab. Whoa. I say there is no way that I am paying for a cab for her to go home and get money. She can leave instead, and I won’t escalate the issue. Instead, she wants to get the corporate number. I go to get that for her, and she asks for my name, the GM’s name, and the phone number for the theatre. Fine… done and done. She then says she needs my last name…which I tell her she does not need. She then says “Well, I don’t want to get racial about it when I explain it, but I guess I have to.” WHOA!!!! WTF?!?!? Ok…

After all this, she and her friend proceed to pull out all coins to pay for their ticket. She has the sweetest smile on her face and says “Can I pay here?” (Guest Services). I point to the Box Office and say “Nope. Over there.” On her way over there, she says “I hope you two have fun losing your jobs over this.” The other manager states her fear at being fired over this. Daddy’s little girl proceeds to say “My dad is a lawyer.” Struck fear into me actually, having her dad take on a team of corporate lawyers… I say “See you next week, when I’m still here.” She pays for her ticket, and I don’t hear from her again.

Still haven’t heard from him yet, and I know I won’t. It’s stupid issues like this that make me really angry. Parents, learn to control your kids… this is what happens when they think they’re all deserving. I hope her dad laughed at her when she explained this, I easily could’ve kicked her out instead of listening to her.

Please… keep em coming. One thing about the holidays is that people are actually very nice… so no complaints about the past weekend!

Take Care of Your Teeth

December 27, 2007 by Joe · 1 Comment 

Taking care of my teeth has always been something that is important to me. I’ve been through everything possible, from fillings to headgear and braces. Having all of this done, I’ve come to realize how important it is to have good dental insurance. I’m lucky to be able to get this through the company that I work for at a very good rate. However, people aren’t always so lucky. Insurance can be complicated, and expensive, especially if you don’t have the right kind of coverage. They can also make you fill out a ton of paperwork, which will make your coverage even harder to get!

When you are considering dental insurance, make sure that you go check out discount dental plans from They’ve been in business since 1999, providing discount insurance and information for consumers looking to purchase dental insurance. They’ve partnered with many different companies and have providers in over 100,000 locations throughout the country. This is great if you’re looking for somewhere to go to get a quick fix.

Remember, dental insurance is important, but you don’t want to get ripped off. Make sure you check these guys out if you currently don’t have dental insurance. They could save you tons of money!

For the Lurkers

December 25, 2007 by Joe · 4 Comments 

What does that even mean? Well this site gets a good amount of visitors, but doesn’t get anymore comments. I don’t know why. I do suppose that its the paid posts, but a guy has to make money somehow. I need a little extra to support myself, and this is one way to do it. I still may move these to a different blog, because I do value my readers.

Anyway, to get things off my agenda, I thought I’d link over to a movie review done by a fellow blogger. This one was done by Skittle, and it is for I Am Legend. Thanks Skittle for writing that!

Now back to the main topic of the post. I love comments… and they’ve been dwindling. The readers and bloggers that I started out with are still active for the most part, because I still see them commenting on other blogs. No hits at you guys, I understand that the writing quality has gone down, and so hasn’t the frequency. My life is just catching up to me… I can’t force myself to stay up late and blog all the time anymore. Luckily I have this night off so that I can blog!

One simple request that I have is… if you’re reading this post, leave a comment! I want to compile a list to see who will do it. I’ll surely make it worth your while! It can simply be a quick hello. I especially want to hear from those who just stop by the blog and are not regular readers. What do I need to do to make you a regular reader?

I havta get ready to go to church… hope to hear from all of you soon!

So are you guys really good with computers? I’m ok, but there are times when I do need to ask for help. Well if you’re in the Toronto area, be sure to give computer service Toronto a call for all of your tech support needs.

What’s in a Host?

December 21, 2007 by Joe · Leave a Comment 

Do you guys have your own hosted blogs, or do you use a service like or I used to use, and I still use it for one of my sites, but I’ve found it much more rewarding to be able to have your own host and domain to customize everything yourself. While this might not be the best choice for people who are starting out, it’s something you should definitely consider if you are planning on expanding your blog or website. I’ve done it and I have nothing to regret at all! If you are interested in getting more information on choosing a host.

A little good, a little bad

December 18, 2007 by Joe · Leave a Comment 

That pretty much describes my day today. Work wasn’t bad, I managed to fix a few issues that were ongoing, which was good. Had a good lunch, I like lasagna. :-) Then afterwards my group went to go build gingerbread houses, which was a ton of fun. I also ate too many brownies while we were doing that and I feel bloated. I have pictures of the houses, but they are in my work email. I will post them when I forward them to myself. I’m really thinking that I should have done that before coming home and realizing this… You’ll have to settle for the generic one that I found for now.

After work, I finished up my Christmas shopping. That was fun. It’s always better when you know what you’re going to get. It makes it quick and painless. I think I did a pretty good job this year, all I have left to get is a gas card for the adopt-a-family thing that my group is doing. Feels good to help out other people! Even though my car needs to be fed. lol. I found out that I really enjoy driving around, blasting the radio/ipod in my car, and singing along. That’s right… singing. I don’t sing in front of people very often, but I sing my heart out in the car… :-P.

So I guess that there was a lot more good than I thought. There is still a little bad though. It’s an ongoing personal issue that really affects me quite deeply. I’ve been told many times that it shouldn’t, and I’ve considered it sometimes… that it shouldn’t. However, it continues to affect me, and I don’t know how long its going to. It’s no medical issue or anything really that serious, but I can get too into things sometimes. I have a good memory too, which doesn’t help. Life isn’t easy though, so I keep on truckin. This blog certainly helps. Just typing these thoughts out is pretty theraputic.

Anyway, I hope that your holiday shopping is going well. Do you find Christmas/Holiday shopping fun? (That was me being PC right there :-D)

On an unrelated note, don’t drink coffee at 10:30 PM. You won’t be able to sleep. I feel wired…
