  • Occasionally I get asked if I ever miss a day in my Photo-A-Day project. I have never missed a day but I have taken a few last minute shots. Today was a last minute shot.

    I did a review last week about Todd McFarlane’s Rabbids. They are all sitting on my desk at work.

  • Million Dollar Arm PosterOn May 16 the movie Million Dollar Arm comes out in theaters. The story looks pretty interesting. I’m always a sucker for a good sports movie even though I’m not a sports guy, weird.

    Million Dollar Arm
    Genre: Drama
    Rating: PG
    U.S. Release date: May 16, 2014
    Running Time: TBD

    Cast: Jon Hamm, Aasif Mandvi, Bill Paxton, Suraj Sharma, Lake Bell, Alan Arkin
    Director: Craig Gillespie

    Based on a true story, sports agent JB Bernstein (Jon Hamm) finds that business has changed and things aren’t going well for his career. In a last ditch effort to save his livelihood he concocts a scheme to find baseball’s next great pitching ace. Hoping to find a young cricket pitcher he can turn into a major league baseball star, JB travels to India to produce a reality show competition called “The Million Dollar Arm.” With the help of cantankerous but eagle-eyed retired baseball scout Ray Poitevint (Alan Arkin), he discovers Dinesh (played by Madhur Mittal from “Slumdog Millionaire”) and Rinku (played by Suraj Sharma from “Life of Pi”), two 18-year-old boys who have no idea about playing baseball, yet have a knack for throwing a fastball. Hoping to sign them to major league contracts and make a quick buck, JB brings the boys home to America to train. While the Americans are definitely out of their element in India, the boys, who have never left their rural villages, are equally challenged when they come to the States. As the boys learn the finer points of baseball, JB, with the help of his charming friend Brenda (Lake Bell), learns valuable life lessons about teamwork, commitment and what it means to be a family.

  • Alberto VO5 Men's 3-in-One

    I am a simple guy when it comes to hair care. I’m simple because I have very little of it and I’m pretty sure that the rest is not long for this world. I’m simple also because I’ve always used a 2 in 1 for my hair and up until a couple of years ago I just used bar soap to clean myself in the shower. Then I started going to work out in the morning at work and I started taking a body wash and a 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner. While it was still fairly simple if I could get things down to one bottle than all the better.

    Enter VO5 Men’s 3-in-One Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Wash. This new product combines those three most important parts of the shower cleansing experience into one. And as you can see, I am not contributing much to the overall clutter in the shower. read more!
