Is this not the creepiest version of Stewie that you’ve ever seen?! Whoever chose this image for their ad campaign should be fired, or least forced to sit and stare at it until they realize just how horrible of a picture it is…

Donate a GOAT???

I’d be real curious to know how Google Adsense translated my recent plug for Child’s Play on Comedic-Genius.com to a desire for goat-based donation ads served on said website…


How would you even gift wrap a goat???

Watched the trailer for the first time this morning and can’t tell if it’s going to be a knock-out or just like almost every other superhero sequel just yet…

I did really like the first movie, so fingers crossed.

a new LEGO series that’s right up my alley…

December 22, 2009 12:06am

I’d heard rumors about LEGO possibly partnering with Disney for an upcoming series or two, but it the actual details were kept pretty tight-lipped. Well, the secret’s finally out because they’ve got a full-page teaser ad in the latest edition of their fan club magazine – Toy Story is going LEGO!

I think this will be a good change of pace for them because not for nothing, but they’ve kind of been beating that Star Wars license to death over the last couple of years. I mean, they’ve released at least three or four different versions of the Millennium Falcon by now, ranging everywhere from $5 – $300, which is cool and all, but it’s time to move on and I think Disney’s library opens up a whole new world of possibilities. (pun partially intended!)

You can see some of the actual demo pieces here on Flickr – apparently these were unveiled at some LEGO convention recently, and I think they look pretty cool. I did read a few complaints in the comments about non-standard pieces – you can see in some of the pictures that the legs are a little longer and obviously their heads aren’t the traditional LEGO shape, which does look a bit MegaBlok-ish, but ultimately who am I kidding?! We’ll have every set in this series regardless… 🙂

P.S. For actual photos, follow the Flickr link; the official LEGO page has a small amount of promotional artwork up, as well as a little Flash game that is kinda useless, but frankly I’m not sure why they put the website up yet if none of the actual links have content behind them. I’m just saying because I love both brands, guys – it looks like somebody missed the mark here!

Reasons Why Wachovia Rocks

December 20, 2009 3:18pm
Tagged with:

So I got the dreaded Terms & Conditions Update letter for one of my credit cards yesterday and given all of the craziness that the banks have seen over the last two years, I was expecting the absolute worst. That said, here are the particular changes that stood out to me…


Yeah, so whereas Chase has been jerking me around with insane APRs after taking my promo rate away some time ago, Wachovia is actually reducing the potential for fees and making it easier to pay off my balances by targeting the highest APRs first! This is fantastic news because on this particular card we have a little bit of money that was getting charged 11.99% while the majority is at a sweet 3.25% for the life of the balance. Chase actually did something similar to me many years ago when I bought a car because I was stupid and took out a cash advance to cover the taxes on it … I think I probably paid for that $700 two or three times over with the 24% interest because it was the very last thing to get paid off on the balance.

Next year is going to be a big year for finally settling up the bulk of our credit card debts as we prepare to take the next big step in life, so it’s refreshing to see a bank actually trying to work with us to make those kinds of things happen. It’s this kind of attitude that makes me want to continue banking with Wachovia in the future, not just until I stop owing them money.
