Some of my favorite commercials...

Lately I have been fascinated by commercials. For some reason they have become incredibly funny or I am just losing it. Either way I thought I would share with you some of my favorite commercials to watch at any random time of the day...

First the anti-marijuana commercial. I am anti-drugs period...but my favorite part of this whole commercial is the ladida instrumental in the background...enjoy and don't do drugs!



Moving on to my next favorite commercial...Heineken, great along side a Tatuaje black label edition cigar...this commercial does the German Beer tribute with one of the most versitile actors of all time...John Turturo!



And finally...we all want to save money in these troubling times...so i saved my 15%



Moral: If you stop smoking weed, let the Hieneken navigate you, you may have found the way to save 15% on your car insurance...

Capitalism...

By definition, provided by Wikipedia, is an economic system in which wealth, and the means of producing wealth, are privately owned and controlled rather than commonly, publicly, or state-owned and controlled. Through capitalism, the land, labor and capital are owned, operated, and traded by private individuals either singly or jointly, and investments, distribution, income, production, pricing and supply of goods, commodities and services are determined by voluntary private decision in a market economy.

Did you get all that? At the high level it's rather simple. Everyman for them self, or group of themselves. It's a great economic structure until one of the sins gets involved. You guessed it; Greed! Think back not too long ago, the 60's, 70's probably the 80's, and maybe the early 90s...back then families of 4 to 5 members got by on one income, man, woman, whatever, just one income right...and now you got families where both parents work, and sometimes the kids too just to get by...

When did jeans cost 300 dollars for a pair? When did you need to take a mortgage and then take a second mortgage to pay for all the crap you bought while you were still paying for your first? When did costs of private schools get pushed upwards of a 100K for an education? When do people have time to pay this back? When capitalist greed decided to settle in and people were taking a million plus in bonus money while others sit on the side of the street looking for a piece of bread and a roof over their head. We used to be one nation...so let's find our groove......



Moral: One nation under our groove...gettin' down just for the funk of it....

I've got the glow...

Last night I decided to meditate some. It had been a long day at work and by the time I got home I was exhausted. However, I couldn't very well go to sleep at 630 after a nice steak, egg, onion and cheese dinner dish, which if you haven't had...you're an amateur! We'll get to that tasty greasy plate some other time...

Back to it, I sat down with the arc of my right foot placed into the arc of my left foot; helps chi flow through the ankle, releases a lot of built up toxins, contact me for more info on this...so I began taking deep breaths. Deeper and deeper breaths. My heart rate slowed so much that there it was, a precocious state of mind...I finally achieved the glow...

For those of you who haven't seen The Last Dragon, get it this weekend. I didn't actually glow but there was definitely a level of energy that surrounded my entire body. It felt like a lucid dream. So I sat there a bit to enjoy it and then I decided to pick myself up and move around only to hear stomach rumble...maybe the glow was was caused by what i ate...nahhh...I've got the glow :-D



Moral: There is more than a single way to skin a cat...how does your soul glow....

Organized Disarray

This whole day my mind's been traveling frontways and backways, leftways and rightways, and upways and downways. I don't quite know why I couldn't have a consistent train of thought for most of the day yesterday. I told a friend that yesterday was a thinking day. Oddly enough I cannot recollect what I was thinking of.

I went to Shaw's to pick up some groceries. Ran into an old friends parents and began discussing life goals and religion and arts and theory. Wasn't making much sense, but I seemed to get my points across in some manner since my friend's father gathered information and made sense of it. He gave me some insight which I am sure once I take a moment to think about I will make sense of it.

It felt as though I was trying to get so many things done at once that upon attempt I couldn't clear my head to get anything done with high fidelity. I feel like I just did my laundry, took the clothes to my room, threw it on my bed, and began placing shirts with pants, pants with socks and socks with belts. Organized but in total disarray.



Moral: If you have never tried this, sit on a chair back straight, and ask a friend to place without pressure his/her palms on your forehead and back of the head. Once they do this let your head loose in their hands and allow it to move in any which direction it feels. You may just relieve some stress.

An eventful season...

I completed all of The Sopranos season 4 this past weekend. Smoking a variety of enjoyable cigars, drinking my caffeinated beverages and listening to many different points of views by the cast of characters I find quite enjoyable, made for a rather entertaining weekend.

Ralphy got choked out for burning down the stable with their horse in the stable, Christopher got in and out of rehab, Uncle Junior beat his case, Tony's wife finally snapped and Tony decided not to continue the hit on the boss of another top family. Bobby Bacala took strides after his wife passed away by eating her last dish she cooked, Tony caused a racket to get his down payment back from the lawyer and Pauly choked out an old lady while trying to rob her of the money she kept in her mattress.

The writing along is amazing. When Tony was being left by his wife she mentioned to him many of his faults she has observed over the years. She looked over the cheating and the lies in order to take care of her family and do what was right by her kids. She finally couldn't take it and broke it off with Tony after the Russian girl called the house telling Carm how Tony was f*cking her cousin with the amputated leg. The drama! Carm, with as much composure as one can have in lieu of such news, brilliantly states to him that we lose more with indecision than with the wrong decision. Basically pointing out to him how she has been indecisive over the past years by overlooking his barbaric ways with his many mistresses, and how she has lost out on love by this....



Moral: What indecision are you guilty of?
