Chilling and Having a Bud

I really don’t remember this commercial. It was probably played at Half Time of the Super Bowl, which is know for their outstanding commercials that entertain so man people during that. But as I was checking out what YouTube had to offer with funny old ladies on commercials when I clicked on this one.

It’s funny but I have to admit it gets on my nerves after about 11 seconds into it.

Where’s The Beef?

Old Ladies and their funny commercials.

They just don’t make them that way anymore!

Just Try It

My parents always insisted that we try a new food. If we didn’t like it, we didn’t have to eat it. But we had to try it. That is a good policy for other things, too. At least try it once.

Remember the old Alka-Seltzer commercials that made the statement “Try It, You’ll Like It!” It came out right about when the commercials with the old lady asking “Where’s The Beef?”

Sing with the King

Last week, Sony BMG Music Entertainment created a Web site that allows anyone with a decent voice to record “Blue Christmas” as a duet with Elvis Presley. As a promotion for the new “Elvis Presley Christmas Duets” album, Martina McBride’s part is cut out and you sing in her place.

The promo web site is singwiththeking dot com, with a link to order your copy of the actual Duets album and a phone number with a special access code so you can sing with Elvis over the phone. If you like the recording, you can send it in a Christmas e-card to friends and family. But if you can’t match Martina’s voice, you have the option to send the original duet instead.

It sounds like fun!

Native Instruments

Since I seem to come from such a musical family (I was left out of that whole loop) I seem to be spending a good amount of time this holiday season online looking at various musical equipment, instruments and all the wonderful accessories that are available these days.¬† Not only have I been looking at all these goodies but I’ve place several orders and am anxious for them all to arrive safe, and sound..

One of the better sites that I’ve spent a good amount of time and money at has some pretty terrific¬†Native Instruments that I know my kid brother would just love to get his hands on. I’ve all ready purchased a birthday gift for him, several months back actually, so I have sent him the link to the site on Facebook.

Funny how we really don’t talk face to face much these past couple of years, it’s come down to using texts, Instant Messaging, email or Face Book. The only time I really see him is the few times a year that the family tries to gather for Thanksgiving and Christmas. He just isn’t the type of person that is comfortable around family, he’s pretty much a loner, but we still love him and won’t stop trying to reel him in any time soon.
