Awesome Retro Gift Ideas for 80's Kids

So this sweet gem is a little something old, mixed with a little something new. When I was 10 years old I had the original pink boom box. It looked a hell of a lot like the one available, but mine was full blown retro.

This one though is still really cool, and would make for an awesome gift for an 80's kid!

Have a fan of the Beetles? Don't know what to get them this holiday? Well check out the Yellow Bus Lunchbox Tin!

Back in the late 80's early 90's the ice cream man had to stop selling these because they were banned. Some garb about these candy delights being an early influencer! Please! Check em out!

Now these shoes were all the rage back in the 80's. I think every kid in town had a pair of these. In those days though we didn't have awesome neon colors. Converse was basic black or red, like these.

Oh and hello... what 80's kid didn't have a lava lamp!? Odds are though that 80's kid packed away their lava lamp, broke it, or opened it up to feel the lava! It's been nearly 30 years, I'm sure that 80's kid could use a new lava lamp! Groovy!

Can't forget about Sno Cones man! These icy treats were pretty much only obtainable at carnivals... or if you were a lucky 80's kid, you had that awesome snoopy snow cone machine. Although it's no Snoopy machine, this retro sno cone ice maker should delight you just as much.

Do you know an 80's kid with a sweet tooth? If you answered yes, than this one of a kind 1980's candy gift basket is sure to have them drooling!

Now this one, Im sure a lot of you know what it is, yet you have not seen one since your got a boo-boo at granny's house close to 30 years ago. Yep, it's a freakin ice pack bag!

Anyone remember these? Back in the 80's you were not cool unless you had a pair of these!

Or hey, why not bring back some ultra childhood memories? I bet it's been forever since you saw one of these:
Or these:

Other gifts you cannot go wrong with:
Yes! Smurfs!!!
Remember these stupid things?

Mood Rings!

1980's Time Wasting Good Times:

Ouija Fun

Just a fun little Ouija Necklace

Or how about a modernized pink witchboard?

Pee Wee is sure to bring a smile to any 80's kid!
Uhm hello you can't forget ALF!

Viewmaster!!!! Seriously these things were the best. Poor kids didn't go on vacation... we went where ever Viewmaster took us!


Small Wonder! C'mon you have to remember the robot girl. Becky!

The City, Season 2 Finale Recap

Last night fans of The Hills, and The City sat down to watch the season finales. Although I love The Hills, this season just didn't do it for me. The plot of the show seemed staged, what went down seemed staged, and the authenticity of the show has vanished.

The City however has managed to keep me interested week after week, and season 2 was no exception.

In the season finale of The City, we watch as Whitney attempts to present her clothing line to potential buyers of her collection.

Kelly (her boss) recommends that she do her presentation without Roxy there. When Whitney tells Roxy that Kelly said she did not want Roxy there, Roxy marches her rear end into Kelly's office to discuss why she thinks she should not be there with Whitney.

Kelly gives her opinion, which made sense, however Roxy thinks she is more than qualified to go. Kelly tells her she is done with it, and that Whitney is a big girl, and if she wants you there, she can take you.

Moving on to the Olivia and Erin drama.

Erin still clearly hates Olivia's guts, and the whole ordeal is just getting draining, and making Erin look like a jealous idiot.

We begin with one of the employees from Elle, who works with Olivia at times to pull looks at stores. The girl is putting together clothes, when Erin walks in. She asks Erin what happened to the looks that her and Olivia had pulled. Erin says that what Olivia pulled didn't work, and that she had to go and pick the outfits herself.

The girl seems miffed, and asks Erin if Olivia knows that she did that. Erin's says she does not care, or something vague and snotty along that line.

Apparently the clothes were to be used on a TV segment.

Joe, was the one who was going to be on air for the shoot. He however knows nothing about the clothes, or where they came from. He asks Olivia about them, but she does not know because Erin did not use any of her clothes, and that everything on the set was pulled by Erin.

Joe is furious, and honestly the clothes Erin picked were horrendous. The moo-moo blue dress Erin!? Really?!

Joe asks Olivia to find Erin, but she is nowhere to be found until after the horrible live TV sit down.

Erin eventually begins telling Joe that its Olivia's fault for not finding out about the clothes, that she had 3 hours to figure it out, and instead she sat on her butt. Erin insists that Olivia needs to be fired over the whole thing. In reality, Erin is the one who should have been fired. If she picked the looks, she should have informed Joe. Instead she chose to vanish, putting her own bosses reputation on the line.

The girls and Joe have a meet in his office, and Erin says she cannot work with Olivia and Olivia cannot work with Erin. Joe is left not knowing what to do. Erin leaves the office like a baby, while Olivia sits there listening to what Joe has to say.

Nothing is really accomplished, and we are left not knowing what goes on.

Anyhow, back to Whitney and Roxy.

Whitney obviously decided to bring Roxy along for some help during her meet with potential buyers of her clothing collection. While setting up, she gets a call from Kelly that she will not be able to make it, so she will have to present the line herself.

Whitney is nervous, but I think it was a good thing that Kelly pulled the crutches out from under Whitney's arms. Ever since Roxy got into town, we got to see a much more insecure Whitney, which is weird. Normally she is in control of every aspect of her life, but since Roxy got to town, Whitney seems more and more like a little push over.

During the meeting, the clients did not really like much of anything Whitney presented to them. They did however offer insightful feedback for Whitney to improve her line.

One of the clients asked Whitney if she had her piece in black. Whitney says that no one wears black in LA, so she did not have it in black. Roxy jumps in and says, 'I wear black in LA'.

I mean seriously, that should have been a red flag for Whitney. Whitney raises her eyebrow, but does not do anything about it, or confront Roxy afterward. It was clear that Roxy wanted to get noticed, which is annoying considering that the meeting was Whitney's, and not hers.

Anyhow, we leave off with Whitney meeting with Kelly to go over the future of her clothing line. Kelly says she will back her up 100%, and go down with her if it fails.

All in all I was disappointed in this seasons finale. Last season ended off perfectly, with no need for a second season. This season however ends off on one of those, to be continued...notes. No one knows whats going on with Whitney, or Olivia.

Hopefully if there is a season 3, it will answer some questions

The Hills Season 6 Finale Recap

-My post also on AC

Last night America got one last 30 minute airing of The Hills, season 6. Although season 6 seemed rather short, it followed a pretty obvious plot.

Without going over that entire plot, I'm going to focus today on the final airing.

We learn that Kristen has to leave her lovely beach house...or I should say house that MTV rented for her? It's never really mentioned where she will go from here, which was annoying. Knowing where she was heading would have been nice.

Anyhow, Justin comes over and they sit outside in beach chairs and discuss where they will go from here. Justin obviously wants to continue to see her, while Kristen plays the same bad girl... I'm so not into relationship's card.

I laughed a little, because it looked like Justin was going to cry. He plops on his shades, and tells her to figure things out. I pretty much loved the rejection, because it's all Justin has ever given to Audrina.

Anyhow, over to Spencer and Heidi.

Spencer finds a pregnancy test in the garbage, and confronts Heidi about it later on in the show. All is well though, because she is not pregnant, and Spencer is finally on board with doing the things his wife wants to do. For the first time ever I really, really loved a scene Spencer was in. It just made him seem more mature, grown up, and manly. A sensitive side of Spencer....and hate him all you want. He can be a sweetheart, and that scene showed that side that Heidi obviously has seen all these years, that MTV edited out.

Now fast forward to the entire engagement party (if thats what it was), that was being thrown for Brody's friend Sleazy T, aka Taylor.

Brody is at the event, dressed in casual wear, (yeah, I was confused by that?) and Jayde is with him. The two apparently reconciled and are back together.

Jayde however gets the idea in her head that it is time that her and Brody take their relationship to the next level. Now keep in mind, the two just broke up, and then hooked back up...why she wants to solidify something that's so unraveled is beyond me.

It aggravates Brody, and later on you see him talking with his pals about leaving Jayde, because her pressuring him into an engagement/marriage didn't fly over with him all too well. He then mentions that he still has feeling for Kristen.

Wow, I wonder how LC felt after watching this!?

Now we will skip on over to Audrina and Lo.

Audrina mentions that she set up a little meeting with Justin to talk. To me it seemed like a pathetic move, but low and behold the meeting happens.

They meet up on some bridge where Justin is staring out at the ocean look like a melancholy James Dean.

Audrina walks up to him, and quickly the entire scene turns into an emotional little train wreck. Audrina clearly still loves him, but Justin plays the whole 'we were never together' card, to make it seem like he never cared about her, and that she was delusional for thinking they were a 'thing'.

However if we fast forward a few episodes, you clearly see this modern day Don Juan reeling Audrina in on his imaginary fishing pole with the fantastic line 'No one will ever be as good as Audrina Patridge' spiel. He knew the line would work, and Audrina promised she would not see Derek anymore.

It's pretty clear Justin knows exactly how to win girls over. He uses a soft voice, with a deep soul-full tone.

Audrina eventually ends up calling him selfish, self centered, and wishes that he could fall in love one day, so maybe he would feel something.

She walks away, and wishes him well.

The final scene we get is Justin walking into Kristen's place while she is packing her things. They go outside to talk, and Justin feeds her his Don Juan lines, and she eats them up. The two leave off apparently in some sort of relationship.

There we have it folks. The grand finale in The Hills.

Pivotal moments include:

1. Spencer is on board for having a baby with Heidi

2. Brody thinks he is going to leave Jayde for good (again)

3. Brody may still have feelings for Kristen

4. Justin and Audrina are done... for now?

5. Kristen and Justin are now a couple

A Fix For: HTTP Port (80), HTTPS Port (443) and FTP (21)

A Fix For: HTTP Port (80), HTTPS Port (443) and FTP (21)

My guide also on AC

So after spending nearly 5 grueling hours trying to figure out how to get online, I finally solved it. However here is what happened, and your story is probably similar.

I was browsing the Internet like I always do, and suddenly I keep getting anti-virus pop ups from some Antispyware Pro. Turned out this annoying non-stop pop up was a virus that consistently would pop up fake virus warnings.

Thankfully I was smart enough to know that all of the pop ups were fake.

I ran my anti-virus Malwarebytes, and got rid of the virus. That was the easy part.

I went to sign on to the Internet, and dang it. I get this annoying message that tells me that Internet Explorer Cannot Display the Webpage.

After running a diagnose I got this infamous little speech; a speech in which I had no clue what it meant.

It goes as follows:

Check The Firewall settings for the HTTP port (80), HTTPS port (443) and FTP (21)

I couldn't even get on to the net to google help on how to fix it. So I started messing around with some of my Internet settings until finally I figured it out.

A quick and easy fix took me hours to figure out, so I wanted to spare those of you who are dealing with this issue the headache.

Go to your Internet browser. Look at the right hand corner of your screen for a little fellow that says TOOLS.

If you for some reason cannot find it, just go to your control panel, and click INTERNET OPTIONS.

After clicking Internet Options, find the tab that says CONNECTIONS.

Click on this tab, and look to the very bottom, a small tab will read LAN SETTINGS. Click it. A new box will appear, check and make sure you UN-CHECK all of the boxes. If one of them is checked it could be causing the connectivity issue.

So that is basically it. Un-Check all of the boxes in your LAN SETTINGS tab.

Run your Internet explorer, and it should now work fine.

The Hills Season 6, Episode 8: Can't Always Get What You Want Recap

My post also on AC

November 17th 2009 launched a horrendous expansion pack of The Sims 3. After pulling my hair out with those glitches, I decided to un-win to the most recent episode of the Hills. That would be episode 8, of season 6, even though MTV will label it episode 18 of season 5? Whatever.


Last nights episode was relatively just as boring as last weeks episode.

To fill you in on the good points let us get to Kristen and Jade.

Jade sent Kristen a text message to meet up with her so they can talk things through. Brody thinks it is a bad idea, but Kristen decides to go anyway.

The girls meet, and to be honest I was on 'Team Kristen' a few weeks prior, but after the girls had a sit down to talk matters through, Kristen goes into the conversation like a raging know it all. Jade is not having it, and she holds her own while Kristen acts like a moron. The height of this whole meet up was Kristen calling Jade a bitch, and Jade telling Kristen to go back to where she came from.


Moving on to Heidi. She is still in baby mode, and her master plan is to stop taking the pill without telling Spencer. Yeah, one bright idea after another huh?

Seriously the Heidi Spencer drama is just getting old, and drawn out, and its not even interesting to watch anymore.


Moving on to Audrina. A whole lot of nothing happens in her world on this weeks episode. She meets up with Heidi to give her a quick recap of the dinner the two had on last weeks episode. Audrina pretends she is over him, and blah, blah, we heard it all before. It's clear that Audrina is still hung up on a freak that does not even care about her.


Who else, who else?

You're probably still wondering if anything ever came of the drama about Heidi's sister and the drinking problem. Yeah, I am still wondering too. That is sort of left in the air, and nothing was mentioned about her. The drama unfolded, and now MTV is likely hoping we forgot about it. Yawn


Stephanie was not even in this episode, and if she was her lines were so uneventful I don;t even recall them.


We left of with Kristen listening to a voice mail from Justin. I once again could not hear what the heck he said, even though I could have sworn Audrina's name was mentioned in the message.

At any rate, Kristen and the bar girl apparently live together, or Stacie is paid to sit on Kristen's couch every night and morning, because its where the two always meet and chat.

Anyhow, Kristen decides to go to Vegas to get away from all of the boy drama, and this is where we left off.

Sneak peeks of next weeks episode show that Kristen is in Vegas and she has a guest. Justin came along too. How convenient.

MTV: The City, Season 2, Episode 8: Forget About Boys Recap

-My post also on AC

The City starring Whitney Port has actually been a hell of a lot more entertaining that this season of The Hills, and frankly I cannot wait to see what goes on in the working girls world every week.

I used to hate Olivia Palermo, but lately I have found her to be softer, and sweeter than I initially thought. Although she has some rough edges, she's quite charismatic, and beautiful.

At any rate, before getting into Olivia's drama, let us take a look at Whitney's.

This week we learn that her friend Sam has set her up on a blind date. Although she is reluctant to go, she decides to go through with it. Roxy also has a date tonight with a guy she's really starting to like.

Whitney's blind date went horribly wrong. If you ever saw the old 80's movie Can't Buy Me Love, starring Patrick Dempsey then you can envision what Whitney's blind date looked like. Only pump him full of snob.

Anyhow, the date basically went all wrong, with him asking her to 'Join Forces' when it came to paying the bill. Where I am from, they call it 'Going Dutch', but usually a guy will never ever ask a girl to go Dutch with him. Not a normal guy anyway.

Roxy on the other hand had a very good date with her interest, and all seemed to go well. So much so that she wanted Whitney to meet him, so they scheduled a little meet up at some local bur, or club.

Meanwhile, back to Olivia. She is on some sort of shoot, where clearly she still will not get over her hate towards Olivia. Whenever Olivia enters a room, or speaks, or even moves, she is rolling her eyes and acting like Olivia is a waste of air, and not even worthy of being in her presence.

Olivia however impresses Joe with all of her help while on the set, and thanks her afterward. He also invites her to a small little cocktail party afterward. Naturally Erin will be attending as well.

So we fast forward to this little event, and Olivia has her graceful game face on. She presents herself in a classy, professional manner, while Erin sits across from her rolling her eyes, acting bored, and presenting herself in a childish manner. Perhaps this was just how MTV edited it, but honestly, I doubt it.

Anyhow, after most of the clients leave the table, Olivia is sitting there and is asked about her preference in music, where basically she is being mocked. After she politely excuses herself, Erin naturally has something to say in a negative nature.


Back to Whitney and Roxy.

The two are getting ready to meet with the guy that Roxy is somewhat involved with. They go out to the club where they were all supposed to meet, and through the door walks Roxy's date, who brought an entourage of women. He gives Roxy the cold shoulder, talks crap about her to the women he came with, and then tries to go up to Roxy to act like they are cool.

Scum move! Dumb move...but whatever.

Back at People's Revolution the following morning Roxy and Whitney are loudly gabbing about the events that went down the night before at the club. Kelly, their boss overhears them, as well as the entire staff close by.

Kelly calls Whitney into her office, and lays it on her about doing her work, and not having chit chat gossip sessions with her little friend. Clearly Kelly is smart and sees Roxy as a bad friend, if Whitney is really serious about launching her clothing line.

We leave off with Whitney eyeballing Roxy. Perhaps her thoughts are where they should be; focusing on her career. Hopefully! I don't think Whitney can afford another bad career move, as she has seemed to disappoint Kelly time and time again ever since Roxy came to town.

Next weeks sneak peek episode looks pretty neat though. It seemed like Kelly was about to duke it out with Roxy, while Olivia confronts her nemesis.

Myth or Fact? Setting Up Tivo HD is Difficult. Find Out Now...

First and foremost, you want to get the most out of your Tivo HD. So if you are truly thinking about buying this DVR, you are definitely going to want to have a home network. By connecting your Tivo HD to your home network you have access to Amazon videos on demand, and if you are a Netflix customer, you will have access to your instant streaming movies.

With Tivo HD hooked to your network you will have a slew of other goodies such as access to your photobucket photos, and a gob of other really cool features.

Likely you have a home network, but not all have a spare HDMI cable. If you want the quality of your Tivo HD to deliver the best picture possible you are going to want to hook your Tivo HD DVR to your HDTV using HDMI cables. Unfortunately HDMI cables do not come with the standard Tivo HD box, so you will have to purchase this cable separately. I highly recommend Monster HDMI cables.

You can pretty much chuck the color coded AV cables that come with the system. Or you can save them... whatever your choice.

Now in order for Tivo HD to fully function, you unfortunately are going to need Cable Cards. Fear not folks, the whole Cable Card ordeal is not as horrible as it sounds. Unfortunately Cablevision has yet to allow their customers to install these cards themselves. I think it's highway robbery, but if you want Tivo HD, you're going to have to call your Cable company and tell them you need Cable Cards for Tivo HD. Ask for the single Multimedia card though. That way they can only charge you for one card, and not 2 cable cards.

Before Cable comes to your home you want to set up the DVR to your HDTV.

Doing this is simple and requires little work. You will need to unplug your cable box, and plug your cable line into the slot marked Cable on the back of the DVR.

Once you do that, plug in the Tivo HD to a wall socket, and plug your HDMI cable into the back of Tivo, and into an available HD slot on your HDTV.

Tivo should turn on. You now just follow the on screen messages. Next you will need an Ethernet cable (you have to buy it, it does not come with Tivo HD) to plug into your router. You have the option to hook up using a phone line, but trust me, hooking your DVR up to your network bring many more features to your DVR.

I simply followed the on screen prompts, and once I was done, all I had to do was wait for the Cable guy to get to my house to plug in the Cable Card.

After about 20 minutes of having the cable guy in our home, Tivo HD was up and running remarkably. We do not have any issues with the picture clarity, and we are glad to have gotten rid of the dreaded Cablevision Scientific DVR box.

Tivo HD may sound difficult to set up, and it is annoying that you have to pay your cable company to have someone come in and stick a card into your Tivo's slot, but the DVR is well worth it, and you'll be thankful you switched.

Rumor: Tmobile To Carry Nokia N900?

-My post also on AC

I as well as thousands of others have patiently followed the news on the Nokia n900. I've jumped for joy with every newly released YouTube video, and I have followed Goggle religiously waiting for new words to be spoken about whether or not TMobile will be picking up the Nokia n900.

Fans of the n900 are buzzing on forums daily in hopes that Tmobile will hear their prayers and deliver the most wanted phone (since the iPhone) before Christmas.

As of right now the Nokia n900 does not have any carriers, and those who purchased the phone early had to pay a pretty hefty price (how does nearly $600 sound?). The hope is that Tmobile will be picking up the n900 for $199.99 that will lessen the price for those who sign up with a contract.

Although buzz around the Internet is all based on rumors, day by day it seems more and more likely that TMobile will in fact soon be carrying the n900.

After pecking around Google and finding more and more rumors regarding who will be carrying the Nokia phone, I decided to just call TMobile for myself. I'm already a customer of TMobile, but after the whole Sidekick data loss, I no longer wanted my Sidekick.

I asked the rep if she knew when they would be getting the n900 in. She laughed and told me I was not the first person to call and ask her about the n900.

Well duh right? I think it's on everyones 'must have' list this holiday. Tmobile would sell tons of these phones if they were to release them before Christmas, and the Holidays.

At any rate, she did not know if they would be carrying them or not. Sigh.

It makes perfect sense for TMobile to carry the phone though. With their 3G network, the n900 would work flawlessly...or as flawlessly as the network allows in your area. Ugh!

The main reason I want TMobile to pick up the N900 is that it would drastically reduce the price. As of now, at nearly $600 when bought alone, and unlocked... the price tag is way too high to even consider. At least it is for me.

MTV Jersey Shore Rocks!!!

-My post also published on AC

All over Facebook my friends keep updating their statuses in regards to something they had seen on Jersey Shore.

I had heard about the reality show, but when it released it just didn't seem like a show I'd be interested in. However due to their non-stop recommendations and 'inside jokes' on the show, I had to be in the in. I wanted to see what this show was all about, so I Tivo'ed the first 2 episodes that I had missed.

The season premier sucked me right in with it's raunchy characters, fun explosive drama, and narcissist behaviors brought on by our Jersey Shore roomies.

Basically the show is just that. MTV gives a beautiful beach front home to 8 Guido's. No need to get offended, the cast members on the show call themselves Guido's and Guida's. They claim it's a lifestyle.

The basics of the show are simple. Throw 4 guys, and 4 girls into a home, have them shack up together all summer long, and pretty much tape their lives as it happens. In order to stay in the house though, each of them must do shifts of work.

It sounds boring, but the interesting mix of personalities is pretty damn hilarious.

One by one as the first few scenes of the show began I got introduced to each of the roommates. None of them stuck out as interesting, good looking, or even remotely entertaining. However the more I watched the show, the more they grew on me.

I loved Snookie for her sexy, yet clueless personality. She's a firecracker and likely we will see a ton of drama unfold in regards to Snookie. Her very first night at the house she was grinding up on the 4 guys, and made a complete fool of herself in the hot tub. The other girls did not take too well to her at first because of her 'dirty girl' ways.

As they get to know her though, she grows on them.

Next we have Mike, who in my opinion is the most charismatic fellow on the show. He's got abs that seem to run down his stomach for miles, and a fun and likable personality. Unfortunately Mike is a bit of a player. When he first gets into the house he takes on a liking to Sammi (another house mate). However Sammi may be ahead of his player game.

The two though make a quick connection, and on the very first night they are walking around holding hands like an old fart married couple. Too much, too quickly if you ask me. At any rate, the blossoming romance was cute. I liked it, I thought it would work.

For me though, she was a bit boring, but Mike took an immediate liking to her.

Up on the chopping block next is Ronnie.

Ronnie is probably the beefiest in the house. He had a total '12 Pack (VH1 people!)' vibe when I first laid eye on him. He was hot, pleasant on the eyes, but I've seen enough of the giant juice heads on VH1, so his character was really no different. Heck even the hair was the same.

He also has a liking toward Sammi, but initially it seems like he wants to hook up with Sammi; no strings, nothing serious.

Sammi and Mike end up making out at a night club in episode 2. No less than a few moments later Mike catches her making out with Ronnie.

It was a full 100 degree turn that I personally did not see coming. I thought Sammi and Mike would really keep the romance hot and heavy once the first kiss was initiated at the club. I don't know what the hell happened, or what MTV edited out, but for Sammi to seem so into Mike, and then stick her tongue down Ronnie's throat...obviously she saw something that she did not like that night in regards to Mike? Then again who knows? Maybe shes just a Guido player?

As of now Sammi and Ronnie quickly become a new hook up/couple/object/something? Yeah, that'll last!

It's clear Sammi has an agenda, and that agenda is to make Mike jealous.

Up next we have Jennie, who calls herself J-WOW. Nothing really stuck out as interesting with her at first. She seemed to stick to the background due to the fact that she has a boyfriend back at home. However get J-WOW all liquored up and her naughty side quickly surfaces! Tee-hee!

After J-WOW we have Angelina. At first she seemed to be the most put together chick on the show. She was relatively quite and friendly...and then...out of nowhere she manages to transform into the biggest drama fueled chick in the house. Angelina has a boyfriend back home, but she has a naughty side too. Angelina to me was so day and night. Unfortunately she does not last very long in the house.

Next we have Pauly. At first he seemed to be one of the quieter guys in the house, but as the show goes on we see that Pauly has an explosive side to him, which is just great for good sleazy reality TV.

He and J-WOW end up kissing, which sealed the official 'J-WOW is a cheater' deal. Yes, J-WOW has a boyfriend, and she likes to pretend that when she does naughty things, she forgets what she did and blames it on the alcohol. Ri-ight!

Last but not least is Vinny.

Vinny is probably the most quiet guy in the house, or at least it is edited that way. Vinny however seems to be smarter than the other guys. He did not initially come into the house looking to make it with one of the female roommates.

Why does this make Vinny smart? Because he gets to ignore the explosive drama that goes on between the men and women who are hooking up on the house, and just have fun with random women he meets over the summer.

While the other cast mates hook up, break up, and fight... Vinny sort of sits back, relaxes and enjoys himself. Smart move!

All in all, the show should be interesting, drama fueled, with tons of hair gel, cussing, slapping, fighting, dissing, kissing and foul behavior. I think I will stay tuned!

Give Us a Season 2 of Bite Me, With Dr. Mike

This past June I came across one of the most charismatic fellows I have ever seen on the Travel channel. Seriously, this guy had the charisma of Steve Erwin, and the energy of a bright and beautiful child.

His name?

Dr. Mike; and this June he had me captivated with his very first episode of, Bite Me, With Dr. Mike.

You see, what made him so spectacular, was that his adventures were fun, they didn't focus on Bizzare Foods or funny joke cracking guys trying to stuff burritos down their throats in under 2 hours.

Dr. Mike went 'down under', he took his viewers along with him on his travel adventures, and he was not afraid to get dirty...or even play host to worms! He gave us an up close and personal look at creatures, and countries many of us will never get the opportunity to visit.

Dr. Mike brought us tall around the globe, and taught us about some of the smaller creatures that usually go unnoticed, or unrecognized, while teaching us some safety measures to use if we ever were to visit some of the locations he ventured to.

Bite Me, With Dr. Mike was fun, adventurous, and energetic. He could seriously travel down into a sewer and I would still find it fascinating!

Unfortunately I was not able to find any information on whether or not the Travel Channel would be giving him a season 2! I mean seriously how could they not? No show, and I mean no show, can come close to the personality and adventures that Dr. Mike's show brought to us.

So please give us a season 2 of Bite Me, With Dr. Mike! This was one of Travel Channels only shows that actually focused on 'travel', and adventure and lands many of us have never seen. We want more! The fans want more!

Sims 3 World Adventures, My Sim is Invisible, and Stuck on Vacation - How to Fix It

My Post also seen on Associated content-

Those of you who went out and bought the expansion pack The Sims 3 World Adventures on its release date were presented with a heap of problems, bugs, and annoying glitches. From disappearing towns, vanishing Sims, and the dreaded error code 16 while attempting to save.

The issue I was presented with goes as follows:

My lovely Laura Sim decided to take her very first vacation to China. Everything went well without an issue. She completed missions, went diving in hidden cave pools, and even found some relics to bring back home with her to Sunset Valley.

Her vacation ended in 3 short days, and eventually she was sent packing. She made it home without any problems, and I even was able to place her relics inside of her home for decoration.

Then I went to save. I got the dreaded error code 16 while trying to save. I tried and tried again, with the same problem. I eventually got frustrated and quit the game without saving.

When I went to re-load the game. I noticed immediately that in the menu box there were no photos of my Sunset Valley town. They were gone. The blank file was still called Sunset Valley, so I clicked it.

When the game loaded I ended up in China, only my Sim had vanished, so all I was able to do was scroll around and look at China.

I didn't know how to fix it. I had nothing to do, my Sim was gone, and Sunset Valley? Hah, I had no access to it.

2 days later EA released a patch to fix the error code 16 problem.

I thought the patch would fix it. I figured my Sim would be back, and so would Sunset Valley.

When I loaded the game though, the same problem was still there. I was stuck in China, Laura had vanished, and Sunset Valley still was not showing up as a playable option.

I decided to take matters into my own hands, and it worked!

In China, I chose the edit town feature. I built a small house, and then went into my family inventory where Laura was. I chose her, and moved her into the home I just built in China.

Once she was in the home, I went into her inventory, dug out her cellphone, and would you believe it!? The option to 'Go Home' was presented on her caller list.

I chose Go Home, and immediately Laura was sent back to Sunset Valley. However she no longer lived in the original home she had in Sunset Valley. Her mind was still set on China, where she had a home. I decided to move her into an empty lot in Sunset Valley, where the game has worked without issue---so far.

So basically that is all you have to do.

If you are stuck on vacation, and your Sim, or Sims vanished, just edit the town, and move them into a house, or empty lot. From there, use the cell phone and chose the 'go home' option.

It will take you back to your hometown. From there you will have to set them up in a new house, as they will no longer recognize their original home, in their original hometown as their home.

Thank God for the fix! I thought I lost everything. I just feel sorry for all of the gamers who un-installed the game and lost everything

Americas Next Top Model, Cycle 13 Winner Is...

Nicole!!! You Go Girl!!!

That's right, for the first time in America's Next Top Model history the judges finally picked the girl I wanted to see win...but besides that, Nicole made history by being th first 'short winner on America's Next Top Model'.

Cycle 13 was the first cycle in the shows history to give girls who were less than average, as far as height goes in the modeling industry.
America's Next Top Model, Cycle 13; And the Winner Is..

For those of you who missed the episode, here is a quick little recap.

Our two remaining contestants Nicole an Laura were immediately launched into the season finale by being given their lines for a commercial for CoverGirl. The next day the two took turns trying their best to memorize their lines, while delivering a friendly CoverGirl commercial, while remembering to model at the same time.

Laura beat her dyslexia by remaining calm, cool and collected, even when she forgot a few lines.

Nicole looked stunning with her red fro straightened, while she too delivered remarkable lines for her commercial. Jay mentioned that she came off on camera a bit snobby, but I failed to recognize it. I guess if I hadn't liked her through the duration of the show, I would have seen it too.

After the commercial the girls were taken to their final photo shoot. This is the photo that would be used as a cover for Seventeen Magazine.

Both girls seemed to delight Nigel, whom was the photographer on the shoot.

The following day the girls will go ad to head during a cat walk. This is the final showdown before the official winner is chosen. A nice little twist with this seasons cat walk though was that girls who got booted off weeks prior would also be walking in the show, so the nice addition of previous contestants was neat; all except for the blond girl... (I forgot her name already because she was seriously that bland, boring, and sickly looking).

When asked which girl she thought should win, her reply was; 'Besides myself; Laura'.

Yuck! They sent you home for a reason, yawn-fest anyone? Does anyone even remember her name? I know I don't.

Anyhow, the cat walk begins, and I have to say for the first time ever I was not impressed at all with either of them. Maybe it was the energy of the show that was lacking, but this was the first cat walk on ANTM that didn't have me in awe.

Both girls seemed to clobber down the runway, and seemed bow-legged, and at this point I did not have a clue who would win. They both seemed so neck and neck, and the judges always seemed to lean towards liking Laura more.

After the show ended, the winner was announced. Laura didn't make the cut.

Our awkward lovable red head Nicole took the win, and I was very happy for her. I wanted her to win. For me personally, Nicole was the girl fans could relate to most. She is not snobby, and she is comfortable in her own skin. What makes her so likable is the fact that everyone has a friend like her; the warm awkward friend, with the Daria like personality. They are alluring in their own special, mysterious, unique and beautiful way.

I guess this is a decent make-up for last seasons dreadful ending. I still think Allison should have taken the win. I guess Tyra knew that too, and that was why they picked the awkward girl this season. Because the awkward girl rocks! Hello!

The City, Season 2- Episode 7 Recap

This week on The City, Season 2, Episode 7 we watch as Roxy nearly nails a permanent nail into Whitney's career coffin.

We start off with the girls in a meeting being told by their boss Kelly. While one of the other workers is giving a verbal explanation of what's going to be happening, Roxy whispers to someone to ask for a pen. Kelly is furious by this and calls her out on it.

Next Kelly talks about an upcoming event that will be taking place in Miami. Kelly tells Whitney that she wants her to come along to Miami for the event, and mentions her clothing line. The girl sitting next to Kelly seems less than enthusiastic, while Whitney beams at the opportunity.

Kelly sees that Roxy looks bummed out that Whitney is going, and she is not. Kelly tells Roxy that she too can join in for the event, and that it will be good training for her. Roxy and Whitney smile like giddy schoolgirls.

Kelly lets them all know though that they are there to work, and not to party and to not put anything on the room charge because she is not paying the bill.

Next we watch as the girls arrive to their hotel room, which is a beautiful room with a killer view of Miami Beach. Immediately we see that Whitney wants to do things the way they are supposed to be done, while Roxy insists they go lay on the beach.

Whitney tells her they are there to work, and that they should eat something outside of the room, so that way the room is not charged. Roxy pouts.

Next we fast forward to Olivia whom is also scheduled to fly down to Miami to cover the events for Elle and bring back any and all information she can about what is in, fashion, and whatever else she does? Naturally she is paired with Erin who completely hates her existence.

Erin is snide to Olivia on the plane, and mentions the numerous trade shows and asks her if she is going to any of them. Olivia tells her no, and that she is covering everything she has on her list. Basically it was Erin's silent way of telling Olivia to go to the trade shows, without telling her. It honestly was obvious, but Olivia did not catch on, and Erin was not about to force her to go.

Skip ahead to Whitney and Roxy at a night club in Miami. The camera oddly displays some weird sweaty guy bobbing his head like a moron too quickly to the music playing. Turns out Whitney knew this character, so the extra footage was necessary...I guess?

Roxy immediately steals the attention of this guy, while Whitney excuses herself to go to the bathroom. The sweaty drunk guy puts some lame moves on Roxy, and she bites them up like bait and asks him if he wants to go somewhere else. Ew.

Whitney comes out of the bathroom to discover that Roxy left.

We also learn that Roxy never came back to the hotel room, because the two meet up the following day at the big event and have a micro verbal spat. It was a bunch of, where were you? I called you, you never answered. Followed by lies told by Roxy.

It seemed like the beginning of the end of their friendship. Thank God.

Just as the argument is going on Kelly comes up to both of them and interrupts them. She tells them that there is a million things that need to get done, and that they should not be just standing around wasting time, in a much meaner way of course. Haha!

Whitney looks furious with Roxy, and Roxy still has that 'whatever, I think I'm a star' demeanor.

Thankfully the event went well, and Kelly seems happy with how it turned out.

Back at the office Whitney and Roxy are sitting near one another when Kelly walks in to basically tell them that what they did at the event was unacceptable, embarrassing, and if it happens again they can get another job.

Idiotic Roxy mutters to Whitney, 'She didn't have one nice thing to say!'

Kelly overhears her and begins to yell at them once again. Kelly once again lets Whitney know that perhaps being friends at work, and outside of work is probably not a good idea for her career. She tells it to both of them, but we all know that statement was meant for Whit.

Whitney sits there with her head down.

Roxy has to again have the final word, as she whispers under her breath, 'Somebody's got PMS.'

Back to Olivia.

After the events are done, we watch as Olivia and Erin sit down with their boss Joe, and a few others to report exactly what they saw at these events.

Erin tells him that everything went smoothly, and perfectly.

Joe moves on to Olivia to ask her what she saw at the events, and what she has to report back to him. Olivia lets him know about the modern futuristic look, and that one pieces seemed to be really in for the season. Joe then asks her about the trade shows.

Olivia is stumped because she was not aware she was supposed to go. Erin jumps in to tell Joe that she asked her if she was going to them, and she kept saying no. Olivia tells Joe that she never told her she 'had' to go to them. Erin basically tries to embarrass Olivia in front of Joe, and the other clients that were there. After the others leave, Joe has a quick meet with both girls.

He takes Olivia's side this round once again, and tells Erin he does not like the bickering, and that the two should be working together to make work on both of them easier. That Erin should have told Olivia to go to the trade shows.

Olivia smiles like she just won an Olympic gold medal, and says that she would love help from Erin.

We all know Olivia is full of it. Haha, but it was still fun to watch her smile like she really meant it.

We pretty much end it there.

MTV's sneak peek into next weeks episode shows Whitney mentioning a blind date, and it seems that her and Roxy are on good terms. I figured Whitney would have kicked her out by now, but I guess not.

We also see Erin once again complaining to Joe about Olivia, on how she should not have to hold Olivia's hand, because no one held hers when she started working. Erin is just holding that grudge when Olivia told her off. Erin deserved it though, because when she first was introduced to Olivia by Joe, Erin came off as a real crass and nasty person, who thought she owned the place.

Once again I'm still with Team Olivia this week.

The Hills, Season 6, Episode 7 Recap: On To The Next

On to the Next
-My post also on AC

So fans of The Hills, if you caught last nights season 6, episode 7 (On To The Next), than kudos. The lame little bar kitty, kitty, meow, meow, meow face off between Kristen and Jayde is probably as good as it is going to get as far as drama goes.

For those of you who missed it, fear not. I'm back for another weekly recap.

Let's start with Spencer and Heidi.

Heidi once again is yammering on about how she wants to have a baby with Spencer. Spencer compares the dogs he got for her birthday to babies, and bing, bang, badda, boo. The baby issue is still up in the air. Heidi wants to get busy immediately, while Spencer wants to wait.

Later on Spencer decides to go see a doctor in order to get his man parts snipped. After he finds out the procedure is irreversible, he leaves and tells Heidi about it later on. She huffs, puffs, walks away and likely will get her baby rather quickly after this episode. If she's not already knocked up that is.

Skip to Kristen.

Kristen and Brody are out having dinner. Kristen seems keen on the whole Brody and Kristin sittin' in a tree, k-i-s-s-i-n-g game. She knows though that he and Jayde are on a break, and she tells him that she is afraid to be in a relationship with him because she thinks he will hurt her and get back with Jayde.

While sitting cozily at a club with one another, Jayde walks in and catches Brody with his arm around Kristen. Jayde's posse tells her that she needs to go up to them and confront them. She takes their advice and walks over to both Brody and Kristen wearing her fight face and asks Brody 'What the F*&@ he is doing!'

I'm not sure how it all happened, but before we know it the camera is going batty, and we see that Kristen is trying to act tough by spatting obscenities at Jayde, and Jayde is doing the same thing. I wish that no one held them back, I would have liked to of seen who would have taken who. I'm pretty sure Kristen wouldn't of had a chance in hell against Jayde.

After the showdown with Jayde, Brody tells Kristen that he and Jayde are over, and he will never ever get back with her again.

On to Audrina.

Audrina meets with Lo and tells her that she is meeting with Justin for dinner. Audrina seems to think that he and her are back on good terms. She tells Lo without officially telling her that she is basically obsessed with him. Obviously she is and God only knows why.

Anyhow, she meets up with Justin where the dinner did not go quite as planned.

Justin is his usual dirt-bag self and pretty much goes on about how he thinks her meeting up with his best friend Derek was some sort of pay back for all the things he had done to her in the past.

The entire conversation seemed like nothing more than a power control issue to get Audrina to feel bad for doing him wrong. Please, the girl righteously deserves a lifetime amount of 'free passes' to do whatever she wants, with whomever she wants. Justin can go out and be a sleaze, and she's supposed to sit back and just accept that. Whatever.

Justin adds more salt and lemon juice to the wound by telling Audrina that Kristen did something to him (like what, MTV offered you more money to play with her?). Basically he is trying to get Audrina to believe he is smitten with Kristen.

Audrina gets up, leaves him there alone and walks out before dinner even starts. Good! Hopefully this will be her last walk of shame.

Next weeks episode looks pretty boring. Basically from the previews MTV gave us, it seems that Brody is going to get back with Jayde. It also shows us Kristen airing her voice-mail she got from Justin to the bar girl Stacie while sitting on a couch. Unfortunately after rewinding the part with Justin's voice-mail about 10 times, I was not able to decipher what he was saying, which was frustrating.

Ghost Adventures Live, and the Robert Bess Controversy. Did He Throw The Meter?

My post also on AC.

I had to Tivo Ghost Adventure Live the other night. Although I think Zak is hot, and Aaron and Nick to be adorable, I could not sit through 7 hours of investigation.

Since the Live event aired, I have been catching parts of the event in 2 hour intervals, and finally finished the entire thing last night.

One scene in particular bothered me though, and this one scene has been the center of controversy ever since it aired live on TV.

Robert Bess a third party investigator came in with his Parabot. Basically this thing is a huge dangerous contained lightning machine. Sadly I couldn't really get the gist of what it did, because everyone kept talking at the same time, so I only got a brief understanding of Roberts invention.

Basically it attracts spirits.


Now nothing against the Ghost Adventures team, again they are without a doubt my favorite team of investigators to watch. They are all easy on the eyes, and all have personalities that are easily likable.

When Robert Bess came in though with his parabot, I was excited to see how it would work. After a blunder and equipment failure, the parabot was finally up and running. It had an annoying click, click noise like one of those lightning balls you can buy in stores like Spencer's.

Anyhow, quickly the energy in the room is high, but I can't feel energy through the TV, so I have to just take their word for it. I have no problem swallowing that and I trust the Ghost Adventure crew, but something about Robert Bess just did not rub me the right way, nor did anything that happened with him seem credible.

Bess seemed to get attacked and pushed into a door, when the camera was not near him. That easily could have been staged.

Another incident where Zak hears a scream moan type noise, clearly was Bess, (I could tell by the voice), however when Zak asked, he does not take credit for making the noise.

The worst thing to unfold with Robert though was when an EMF meter gets thrown from his hand. Thanks to Tivo though, after reviewing the footage, over, and over again it seemed to me like he did a quick snap of the wrist, and flung the meter himself. I mean honestly, you do not even have to have a good eye to catch the flick of the wrist action.

At any rate, this footage is found on numerous YouTube videos, so you can have a look and decide for yourself. For me personally, it looks like he threw it.

Reasons Why Buying a Tivo HD is Better Than Cablevisions HD DVR

Cablevision DVR vs. Tivo HD

I'm a DVR pioneer. The very moment I found out about this fantastic technology for my TV viewing pleasures, I was one of the first on board to ordering my TIVO DVR. Although I was new to the entire concept, and setting up my TIVO was a royal pain in the rear, I honestly could not have been happier. Having the ability to record all of my favorite shows, having the ability to fast forward, rewind, and pause live TV; I mean seriously, it does not get any more kosher than that.

Then one fine day I talked myself into buying an HDTV. Sweet delicious HDTV, with a full blow your eyes away 1080p. And why not? I spend most of my free time watching TV anyway, so why not fully amp up my viewing pleasures with an HDTV!?

After hooking up my new eye orgasm of a television, I realized that there was one problem, one very huge problem. My old school TIVO gave off some really horrible picture clarity. I bought the HDTV for the clarity, and with TIVO hooked up to it, things were not kosher at all, not even by a long shot.

I desperately wanted to get myself a TIVO HD DVR, but at the asking price that came to nearly the same jaw dropping price as the HDTV, I said 'heck no', and headed down to Cablevision to upgrade my digital cable box, to a digital HD DVR box.

After hooking it all up, immediately I hated the browsing menus, and the confusing recording options. However I got used to it, but after a year of owning Cablevisions box, I have jotted down all of the reasons why you should just spend the extra loot on a TIVO HD DVR, and why I will be adding one to my Christmas wish list this year.

1. If you set up your Cablevision DVR box to record your favorite show, sometimes it decides it does not want to. While you think that all of your Ghost Adventure episodes are being recorded, you come home to find that the box decided it did not want to record it, even though you set it up to do so.

2. For some bizarre reason my Cablevision box refuses to even acknowledge that FOX 5 is a channel. If you try to record something on this channel, expect to come home, hit play on your FOX 5 show, only to discover a pure black nothingness of a show.

3. My Cablevision DVR has been returned to Cablevision 4 times in just one year.

The first time they gave me a new DVR, which stopped working just a week after owning it.

The second box died a month later.

The third time Cablevision decided that it must have been something I was doing wrong, so they sent over a team of third party morons who set up the new box in the same manner I had set up previous boxes. The downside to this was a delicious service fee.

This box stopped working a few months later. The cycle is a non-stop pain in the butt. I had to demand the 4th box be brand new, and not a refurbished box, like all of the previous models were they had given me.

4. The channel guide menu only allows you to see ahead 1 week. With TIVO you could see what was playing for an entire month before it was even on, saving you time having to weed through the guide.

5. The Cablevision DVR will sometimes have a hiccup. These hiccups occur around once a month, where you will come home expecting to watch some TV, only to find that your Cable box is in BOOT mode. You have to wait a few long minutes for the box to fully load up. If the box had a hiccup, expect to have to add very single program you had on your record list, back onto the DVR again. Fun!

6. The pause button on the Cablevision DVR decides sometimes it does not want to let you pause it. This in turn ends up becoming a frustrating button mashing, smashing good time.

7. The audio sometimes decides to just blip out. This is not an issue with my TV, as I have heard from others that their Cable DVR box does the same exact thing. The fix, is to shut off the cable box, and to turn it back on. Reason? Unknown.

8. Don't even get me started on Cablevisions horrible guide browsing. Browsing through the guide menu is a slow and painful quest. On Tivo, you hit guide and it immediately takes you to a well organized list of whats on for the week/month. Browsing on Tivo is quick, and not once have I ever experienced slow times. Cables HD DVR is slow, only saves up to a weeks worth of viewing content, and browsing thorough it is slow and annoying.

In conclusion a Cablevison DVR is much cheaper, but it will function like a dollar store battery. You get what you pay for.

A Tivo HD in my opinion is the way to go. Tivo runs flawlessly, and you can guarantee that what you tell it to record, it will record!

Chance and Hot Wings, The Aftermath of Real Chance of Love 2! Are They Still Together?

OK VH1 hear me out, I adore your love reality shows, as ridiculous as 'finding love by hooking up with a batch of girls' is, I still continue to watch your reality shows...but seriously if you want to keep a fan base when it comes to the reality madness, at least force your stars to 'pretend to be together'; at least for a little bit after the final show.

I knew Chance should have chosen Mammacita, the two of them hit it off so well, and she seemed to really love him. I guess the rolling tears and the love sob story given off by Hot Wings during the final ceremony sold Chance, so he picked her, while Mammacita stood in the background looking clueless. Damn girl, you should have tried harder!!!

No matter though, because even after picking Hot Wings, the relationship between Hot Wings and Chance died dead just as soon as the cameras shut off. How original?!

The sad thing however is that both guys consistently pointed out that they were looking for a real girl to kick it with, a real relationship, and real love. Phooey!

Hot wings shed real tears, all to be exploited for ratings.

No matter though, because Hot Wings shared a delightful interview on VH1 Blog to give us her side of the story, which was not much, considering all contact from Chance ended the moment the cameras shut down.

However Hot Wings has never been one to bite her tongue, she shared with fans a few details that were edited out of the show, which will probably surprise a few of you, so for the full dirt report, check out Hot Wings interview! Click here to be taken to interview.

We Want To See Becky Buckwild and Frank The Entertainer On VH1, On Their Own Show

never really leaned towards liking the villain's. Frank was the bully on I Love Money 2, but originally came to reality fame thanks to I Love New York, I Love Money, and probably a few other VH1 reality shows that I cannot even recall.

Becky Buckwild scooped up her fame to reality shame thanks to Flavor of Love, and Charm School, where we saw a more humble and innocent side of Becky.

Throw this dirty playing pair into a beautiful mansion together, and watch the flames ignite as they work and fail together.

Becky and Frank got really close in I Love Money 2, and Becky seemed to be moving around like the little Entertainment pawn she was. Yep, Frank charmed her, he had her under his thumb.

After the show came to an end though, the rumor mill began circulating that these 2 were a sort of couple, but no one was surely for sure? There were even twitter fighting going on between the two. I didn't bother to follow it.

At any rate, even if the relationship is real or fake, what a frigging cash cow the two are together. Frank is nuts, Becky is nuts, and together VH1 could easily break rating history.

People love to love Frank, and love to hate him (gosh, even having his parent on the show would be killer for ratings), the same tune rings for Becky. One minute she is a humble angelic beautiful person, and the next minute, the lighting hits her face at a bad angle and her evil colors shine through..thus making us hate her again.

Hate them, or love them though, Frank The Entertainer, and Becky Buckwild would make for one hell of an awesome show and VH1 should make note of that.

These 2 are reality star pioneers, and fans want to see them again, we are not quite done loving, and hating the duo. Give us more!

If you can remember that lame reality saga with the Brady Bunch guy, and that chick from America's Next Top Model, Adrienne, then you will see the direction I'm headed at.

That Brady stuff was boring compared to the stuff Becky and Frank could come up with. VH1 hear us!

Hey VH1 We Want a Reunion Show for Real Chance of Love 2

Hey darlings, I bet you are just as mad as I am.

Let me guess, you followed every single stinkin episode of Real Chance of Love 2, only to discover...uhm... nothing about the reunion show!

VH1 seems to think it is OK to just throw us out an interview or two on their blog with the shows winners, and that is that! Well, I am not having that. I want a reunion show. I want all the spit, slaps, and cussing I can handle, and I want to laugh as the women go head to head with their verbal insults on each other, and on the guys.

Apparently I am not the only angry fan of the show, there is a petition going on right now to have people sign in hopes that VH1 will pay attention and give us what we have been demanding, a reunion show!

We want all the updates, we want to see who got fat, who got thin, who looks uglier, and who looks hotter than they originally did on the show.

I personally think it's pretty messed up of VH1, we also have never been given any updates on Meghan Hauserman, and whether or not she will ever be given a new show. Personally I hope they start her off from scratch with a brand new show.

At any rate, you can sign the twititon for a reunion show, by clicking here.

Last years reunion:

Fun Fart Terms - A Mini Dictionary of Fart Types, and What They Mean

I wrote this one ages ago, and felt like sharing:

The Bottom Line Pffft, ffffff, sssssffffpppppffft,,,,,rrrrraaaannnnnnttttt,,,fffft, pppphhhhhffffttt. Whoa.

Okay so today I felt like talking about the funniest subject in the world. (At least according to my immature standards) FARTS! I mean come on, even in my 80's I'm still going to chuckle at the little green gas. Even the word makes me giggle. It's probably the only joke a person can do, that never grows old; or boring.

So here are my terms. Feel free to add some in my comments section. As I'm sure this list will grow.

Drive By-

This is a form of gas so foggy, smelly, and nasty that even you can't bare the stench of it. Usually these types of farts occur in a shopping center. Your only hope is to quickly run by as many people you can and get out of there, so no eyes look upon you as the person who let loose. You manage to get away from the fart... but oh gee, looks like it followed you. Time to make your way to the next isle- this is where you hear other shoppers going 'phhhew, whats that awful smell'-'mommy my eyes hurt'. -Theres no escaping this fart. It's almost as if it's attached itself to your pants.


You're on a first date. You're stomach is tied in knots, and theres been this bubble of gas stuck in between your butt checks for almost 2 minutes. The gas bubble is getting stronger, it has friends backing it up as well. Before you know it, out pops a firecracker of a fart followed by waves of other farts that forced the first one out. That's what you get for trying to hold it in.

Run doos-

These little fellars make themselves present while you're running. Usually with each step you place your foot on the ground, another one plops out. -Better hope no one is behind you.

Gone with the wind-

These are probably one of my favorites. They occur on windy days. They're most fun when you're in a city with mobs of people behind you. You yourself don't get the benefits of smelling your good deeds, but everyone 15 feet behind you does. The wind up and swooped that one right into their noses. You smile, and continue walking.

Bat outta Hells-

These farts occur out of nowhere. Even you're shocked. You didn't even get a moment to preform the squeegie. This fart is usually loud and forceful. Everyone around you knows you did it, and theres no denying it. You can either go with the respectful 'excuse me', or laugh.
I usually go with the second.


Someone says something funny- naturally you laugh. But would you listen to that. Your bung thought it was funny too. pfft pfft pppppfffff-

Road Traps-

These bad boys occur in the car. Usually 24 hours after eating taco bell. They also tend to pop up when someone else is in the car with you. These farts probably benefit you the most, because you can easily roll up the windows and let everyone else enjoy the fragrances.

Sonic Booms-

These come like a bat outta hell, as well. Only people can hear them in the next room when you let one of these bad boys rip. These types of farts can be dangerous. Usually after you pass a Sonic Boom, you say- I think I just ripped me a new -------. Sonic Booms can also be semi painful.


These farts are usually warm. Perhaps too warm. They weeze out with some rumbling noises. These farts usually stink bad. After expelling a Poopsie daisy it would be a good idea to go to the bathroom. Otherwise you may shart.


Farts followed by ----, sometimes result in accidents in your pants. Very, very embarrassing.


This is a fart that usually happens in the morning, while your lying in bed alone. No one is ever around to hear it, which angers you later on. Who is going to believe that your fart lasted almost 2 minutes long? It's like a treasure that your body only will share with you.


These farts are somewhat incredible. After passing a lightweight, you yourself feel as if you lost a few pounds. Your pants fit better, and you just feel better. I think you can also call this fart a Healthy Fart. -The diet fart.

Vanishing fart-

These are disappointing. It usually makes no sound at all. So automatically you think it's going to stink.
-Your friend is sitting right next to you. -You keep on a straight face, and try not to laugh, because you want them to get stuck smellin' it. But a few seconds go by, you burst out laughing. Your friend looks at you like you're a moron. You think- oh any minute now, it'll be crawling right up their nose, all in their face.... only it never does. The fart vanished, and no traces were left behind. Dang*- aka 'the clean fart'

Stale Fart-

These occur at night. Under the covers. You're too lazy too wiff the blankets around, to let the smelly thing out from under the covers. An hour goes by, and you notice the fart is escaping from the covers. Only its got this rotten old smell to it. Thats a stale fart.

Uninvited Farts-

This fart is probably the most annoying. The only one you don't want to occur. They happen to pop out and say hello during extremely important events, such as business meetings, weddings and funerals. You even took gas-X a few hours before to stop such an occurrence. Only this fart is filled with vengeance. It's loud, its foul, and it's usually always done in front of some stuck up yuppie with something to say about it.


The something must be wrong farts pop out about every 15 minutes. But they don't stop. They keep on coming, and coming, all day long! With each one that you pass the smell is worse than the last.
By the time noon occurs they're so hot and steamy that you 'know' something is wrong. You're amazed that you haven't sharted yet.
By the time bedtime arrives, you're so sick of yourself that you feel like punching your stomach, and telling the farts to stop! They're now smelling so bad that they are waking you up in your sleep. Your partner has already decided to go sleep in the living room because of your stench. If these farts still occur in the morning, you start thinking that you need to get your colon cleaned.

Breakfast Break-

Breakfast break farts are pretty funny. They tend to smell exactly like your breakfast, that you ate an hour ago. Bacon and eggs. - These are great when you pass them in a small office, and someone walks in and says 'mmm was someone just eating bacon and eggs in here?- God I'm so hungry now!' ----Yeah he wants tah eat my fart for breakfast! Yes!
You get much satisfaction from these farts, especially if it happens to be your boss, wanting to munch down on your fart.


Vocal poofs are fun farts. They come out almost singing. They're probably the ones that will grab the most laughs in a crowded room. They go from a low note, to a high note, then back down; followed by a small chorus of wheezing. What a hoot!

Echoing Wails-

These little buggers are probably the most embarrassing. They tend to only occur when you have to use one of them public bathrooms. Usually the bathroom is filled with people. You try to be silent. You even wait for most of them to leave before doing your doo. But doodies got some buddies. Doesn't he always. They're not shy either. They come spraying out in bucket loads. The farts though aren't that loud. But the echo sure is.
Before you know it, you've got some little punk kid laughing his rear end off in the next stall over. Stupid kid though, went and passed himself a few gigglegoos. Take that! You wait till you hear no one else in the bathroom. Its now safe to show your face.
So you thought. Usually theres someone still washing their hands. They don't dare make eye contact with you. You pig, you!


This fart comes from someone else. Usually a co worker, or a student sitting next to you in class. You know them, but your not sure if you should laugh at them, or just pretend you didn't hear it. Each choice has either a positive or negative outcome. You're not sure which though.

Powdered Fart-

These gases come from extreme girly girls. The weak farts. A girl rushes by you, and suddenly you smell a mixture of fart with baby powder. They're probably worse than the poopsiedaisys, because 25 year old women shouldn't be powdering their bums. They also smell extremely un-natural. Aka Sissy fart.


These types of rarities only happen when your feeling extremely thoughtful. You feel a fart about to push its way out into the world. But you want to hold onto it for just a little longer. You cup your hands around your bum, and catch the little newborn. The next ritual you perform quickly is the ScoopNSwoop.-
Yup- now quickly before the fart gets away, you swoop it on over to someone standing nearby. How thoughtful of you to share.

I'm sure there are tons more. But here is just a little list I compiled, and felt like sharing. ;) Pffffftttt.
