ShamWow Infomercial

Recently I started seeing this Infomercial for a product called ShamWow. It is by far my favorite Infomercial of all time now. The guy is just crazy, and the product is just WOW! ShamWow is this cloth that holds a ton of water and is supposedly better then any other towel you can get. It's made in Germany and you know the Germans make great stuff. Then of course you know Olympic Divers use it (Wait... WHAT?!) The product practically sells itself!

Check out the Infomercial and the Parody below it. What is your favorite Infomercial? If you have a youtube link go ahead, link it up!

Actual Infomercial:


There are even more parodies of this infomercial on YouTube. Look it up! If you find a better one e-mail me the link!

The Papa Johns FAIL!

When it comes to delivery pizza in my area Papa Johns is the best. The pizza is always delicious and normally the pizza is always delivered in a timely manner. The one problem I have with Papa Johns is they have a small delivery area.

In September my boyfriend Grant bought a house that is kinda far out from Brandon but not that far out. We ordered from Papa Johns and the website said that they delivered to the area. We then got a phone call from the store claiming that they didn't even though we had seen the truck go farther down the road from the house. We were like ok cool we will order and pick-up. Then we got an e-mail stating that they did now deliver to the area. We were super excited! So we called ordered a pizza and again they claimed not to deliver to the area. This time we said we got the e-mail and they delivered the pizza. We continued to order pizza and they kept claiming we weren't in the area. We ordered pizza a bunch of times. At one point we were unable to orde…

Happy Holidays!

I just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Be safe!

Here is a short video of me and Sophie (It is My brother Nick dog).

And the YouTube version of fail:

My Favorite iPod Touch Applications

On November 30th (the day after my birthday) I got an iPod Touch. I fell in love with it instantly, it was tech-love at first sight. If you already have a phone and have no need to connect to the Internet immediately and you can wait till you get to your favorite coffee house that has WIFI or a Krystal, or if you are on a budget (like me) and can't afford the iPhone and the monthly bill, than maybe the iPod Touch is for you.

I got the 8GB iPod which is a good amount of space but really not enough for me. My suggestion is to get the 16GB if you can and of course if you can afford the 32GB which is $399 then go for it. The 8GB is a nice size and I can put my favorite music into playlists and it works out well. The only negative is I can't fit all the music I want with a full length movie. Although, I am able to fit my Podcasts on with my music and it works great!

One of my problems with space has to deal with the Applications. I have become an application whore! Already I have fi…

It Snowed!

It snowed this morning here. I haven't seen snow like this in a long time. I was very excited so I decided to go outside and play in it. Unfortunately all of my friends were either on the other side of town or at work so I was by myself :( It was still fun though.

I also went sledding on our flexible flyer saucer sled. It was fun till I sled into a puddle.

Finals Week!

It's that time again, FINALS WEEK! Yep, yep, that time of the semester where I bury my face into a book and research.

I have already completed 1 final and I have 1 more to go plus like 3 articles, 2 papers, 3 projects and a portfolio due all next week and tomorrow.

I'm a busy bee right now so if you don't hear back from me that is why. I may be MIA till the end of next week.

Anyway Check out the vid and see you all in a week. Hopefully I'll be able to edit some vids I have and do a few posts I haven't been able to do. Later friends!

Me Today Nov. 15th SMTT Bring It South Panola! & a Quantum of Solace Review!

Grant, HO, and I also went to see Quantum of Solace last night. It was a good movie I give it a 9 out of 10. Grant gives it a 8 out of 10. I think it's a good movie for theaters. I still like Casino Royale better but it's still an awesome Bond movie.

Check it out!

Troop Tube

As I was searching through my feeds this morning on my reader I found an article on Troop Tube. Immediately I went to the site and signed up for an account.

Some of you are aware I have had a few friends in the past and in the present who have gone over seas to fight for our country. Well, they block YouTube and Ustream (isn't that silly) from use. The military recently came back and started their own youtube like site called TroopTube!

I will probably be using this and encouraging my friend Montana who is currently over there to also use it and upload his videos (I say we keep the list going!!!!! this could get ugly people).

If you are interested in checking out this site check it out:

The Conference

The Conference is over FINALLY! Thank you to all who attended in person and online. I apologize for the loss of feed during the keynote speaker. We were using a spotty connection.

The conference was awesome. About 70 people attended from major companies to small businesses to students. It was a hit! I'm hoping to get that group going in my area soon and possibly do something like this again but in a workshop format. I think people enjoy it! And of course next time I want to keep it free as well.

Also, I would like to apologize for my clear flake out moment during my intro. I lost my contact and have been slightly under the weather. It was interesting trying to see read things with one eye.

Don't forget to check out the conference website and join. Let's start a discussion! Ask questions and get them answered. Share and network :)

****This is to everyone regarding the blog*******
More posts are coming soon. I've got a busy month ahead of me with my birthday, Thanksgiving,…

Share the Power!

Recently, I started checking out this show: on Viddler. I've seen past episodes here and there and they are awesome. Recently they asked all their viddler friends to send in a video to use in their latest show. Check it out it turned out great!:

Having the Worst Day Ever! This made it all better!

Had a few set back with the Conference today. It's been bad making me panic a little. I wa really bad off until @TbroOnline tweeted this out. It made my day :)

How Much Are your Tweets Worth?

I found this website through a Tweet on Twitter from @besttechie and his Blog I had to go check it out. Basically the site tells you how much you can make in a Month through their service by allowing your account be used as advertising.

I WOULD NEVER DO THIS! So no worries to my followers. I did however find that an interesting concept. Plus you can go to the site type in your Twitter name to see how much you would make a month. Which I thought was neat.

Here were my results:

You can go to the site and Try it yourself:

President-Elect Barack Obama's Victory Speech On When Twitter Broke.

President-Elect Barack Obama not only won the Presidency this evening but he also Broke Twitter! For the entire day due to the elections twitter was slow and updates were delayed. By 11:00 pm ET Twitter just stopped. Many people didn't receive any tweets for a good hour. It was because Twitter was being overloaded with people tweeting about the outcome of the election from around the world. It was a monumental day in many senses. Congrats to Obama and Biden. I can only hope they will both represent our country well.

As for has had a stream throughout most of Obama's Presidential Campaign. On Nov. 4th it was no exception. Thousands and Thousands tuned in to watch his speech live on the popular live streaming site. You can still watch the recorded speech on along with the other happenings of the evening.

Best Buy wishes me Happy Birthday!

As some of you know my Birthday is coming up at the end of the month. I will be 23. Yay! Well, about an hour ago I recieved an e-mail from Best Buy giving me a coupon to use for my Birthday. At First I was SUPER EXCITED! I was ready to head back out and go buy a movie I wanted (Sleeping Beauty).

Then I read the Coupon again.

It seems the coupon expires on October 31, 2008... Odd thing is I only just got it for the first time today! Not to mention my Birthday isn't until Nov. 29th.

So whats the deal Best Buy?

Halloween08 Haunted Macbook

My Macbook was haunted this week. It did weird things to my Halloween video. Nothing is in order and all the videos have weird effects to them. I'm not sure what happened :(

LOL Cat Art Show

I found this on And I had to post it. Check it out it's hilarious and a cool idea.

I have a thing for adventures.

Grant and I recorded this I think in December or something like that. We were in search of a adventure. We did not succeed. Oh well.

Cups Tour

I had to do a Tour for my TV Workshop class. I choose to do mine at my 2nd home, CUPS! If you follow my Twitter feed you know I spend most of my time at cups and I go at least once a day for my delicious coffee. This was the same day the chick was browsing through my iTunes library and blaring my music through cups. If you listen while Michael speaks the first time you'll hear Time Warp. Check out where I hang out:

Also, don't forget about the New Media Conference in Jackson, MS at Mississippi Public Broadcasting on Nov. 10th.

Stressful Times

Hello Friends,
So It's been awhile and I apologize for my absence, but it has been a hectic time. Currently I'm taking 16 hours or something which normally isn't that bad on hours but with the amount of upper level courses I am taking and then adding on a conference well it's more like 22 hours.

This is why I haven't really been able to do any shows, blog posts, videos, and even watching Tuesday Night Tech. I've actually not been able to watch for 4 weeks and tonight is show 69 and I'm going to have to miss it to write my Communication Law paper. I'm pretty busy but I am hoping I will be able to get back into things by the end of the semester.

I will be posting about the conference later today. If you want to check out the network I have set up relating to the conference go to

Thanks for all the concerns and your patience all it's been pretty crazy for me academically, and personally.


Oh and supposedly I tweet a lot. …

Alien Contact October 14th 2008

On October 14, 2008 it was predicted that there would be contact with Alien beings from outer space in Alabama.

I found this video of the encounter. Please watch all the way through. Some scenes are mixed with the popular movie Independence Day for effect. I did not create this video I found it thanks to my friend Krissie who tipped me off on the story.

Here is a serious question. Did anyone see this ship? If you have please go to this website: ;)

Have you heard about this? I had not until Krissie told me about it. Obviously it didn't happen. What are your thoughts on other life forms? What are your thoughts on this prediction?

No more Fail Whale?

I was on twitter just now and got this error message:

Does this mean that the Fail Whale is gone? Twitter likes to change it up a bit and I think it's great. But, I was really starting to like the Fail Whale. It's become apart of our everyday conversation. I kinda miss the Whale :(

Don't Vote

My brother sent this to me and I urge you to pass it on. Also, check it out on College Humor

Sure it's funny, but really it's not a laughing matter. This year do yourself, your country and the world a favor... VOTE! It doesn't matter who you vote for, I don't care who you vote for, just as long as you go Vote.

I'm not going to say Vote or Die since obviously that didn't work (Paris Hilton is still alive). All I ask is that you register. I assure you it is painless and simple. All you have to do is take the time.

Find where to Register:

My Dr. Horrible Desktop!

If you didn't get the tweet last night you missed my decision for my Halloween costume. This year I have decided to dress up as Hannah Dr. Horribles Horrible Assistant.

Ok so you might be thinking "ummm Dr. Horrible doesn't have a Horrible Assistant named Hannah..." Well, this was my super villain I created (pictures and video to come).

Grant (mogki) might be dressing up as Dr. Horrible which would put the icing on the cake.

All Eyes On Oxford

Tonight all eyes, not just around the Country, but around the World, will be on Oxford Mississippi for the First Presidential Debate. At 11:00am EST Senator McCain announced he will be at the debate this evening. The topic of the debate tonight is Foreign Policy, but last night Tom Brokaw, said that avoiding the topic of Economics would be impossible since both topics really go hand in hand.

McCain said earlier this week that he would not attend the debate unless a solution had been made on the Economic Crisis. As of yet there has not been one made and last night Washington Mutual (WAMU) collapsed and was taken over by Chase. Things are getting worse and worse with the Economy and hopefully soon the economy will turn around.

This election is important. No matter who you are supporting, we as a nation need to choose the right character and person to lead the country in the right direction. I have yet to make a decision. I am stuck in the middle of the issues and see the negatives and pos…

Heroes Season 3 Premiere

Over the Summer my friends and I have developed one common love for the TV show Heroes. Finally last night Season 3 premiered and it was amazing (I would like to apologize all that follow me on twitter for my outbursts and insane tweets). So in the end we have decided we just all need to get together and have a Heroes party every Monday to watch the show.

Wilma had to work last night unfortunately, so today she was catching up on what she missed while we were sitting at cups. We also have decided to do a little video blog of the show on what we think, our views, theories, how hot Peter is etc. Anyway, This is the first video and we hope you enjoy (And yes most likely others from the group will be joining in on this. I haz a feeling):

Oh and ummmm my YouTube Related Videos is Rick Rolling people:

Apple Store Opening

Grant and I finally made it over to the new Apple Store that just opened in our area. It was a lot of fun and I was just a little excited ;)

This is Epic:


I've been really busy lately and trying to get back on my feet. I've put the blog on hold for the time being until I can get some other things in my life straight.

I have a pretty full schedule with school and if you haven't heard I am putting together a New Media Conference at Mississippi College by the end of the Semester (it's for a grade).

If you have not heard my Uncle recently passed away suddenly.

I'm just stressed and emotionally exhausted. Please just be patient I will be back with more blog posts.


Mississippi College "New Media" Conference

I am in the planning stage of putting together a "New Media" Conference at Mississippi College for a class. Yeah, it will be a grade for me which means most likely I will go over the top like I did for Senior Project in High School (yes I've put together a workshop before but it was on "Things With Wings").

Right now I am looking for people who are interested in the conference. Anyone who wants to attend speak etc. I will be working with our Communications department here at MC to put it together but I would love any ideas or advice for you all as well.

If you are interested please e-mail me at

Random Myspace Post

Just a Quick Little post

I logged on to my Myspace today. And accepted some friend requests. When it went to the next page this ad was on the center of it:

I wanted to click it but did not in the end.

Has anyone gotten this ad before? if you have did you click it? I'm curious as to what it does and where it goes.


On The Scene Before the Storm in Jackson, MS #Gu

I was out and about Saturday Night before the storm and here is my report on what I saw related to Hurricane Gustav prep around the Jackson, MS area.

The Weather Channel: Jim Cantore

Many people know of Meteorologist Jim Cantore for the Weather Channel. It is common knowledge that if he is in your town most likely be ready to get blown away. Some people go so far to call him "The Angel of Death".

I am happy to report, for the Mississippi area at least, that he is not in our fine state. He is reporting from South East Louisiana along the coast in a town called Houma Louisiana. This is one of the cities they are expecting the eye to make landfall.

Jim Cantore if you ever end up reading this... Please stay away from us... You scare me.

Gustav: Staying Up-To-Date!

Thanks to technology and things like Twitter we are all able to stay connected better than ever. This is no different for staying up-to-date on the latest with Hurricane Gustav.

Twitter is becoming a great resource during catastrophic events. During the recent earth quake in California people were alerted about damage and the actual quake before the Media even had a chance to jump on it. This is turning anyone into an on the scene reporter in a sense. It's also allowing information to travel much faster.

Twitter is already being used to track information on Gustav. The Home Depot is using their account to keep customers up to date on the latest shipments of supplies to their stores. Newspapers and other forms of Media are keeping their audience up to date as soon as information is available. Not, to mention the thousand other twitterers who are just average joes.

I plan on twittering everything during the hurricane if it hits. When Katrina hit we never lost cell phone service. Even …

Gustav: Hurricane Prep Guide

As of today Gustav has been upgraded to a CAT 1 Hurricane (to get updates on Gustav and other storms follow @hurricanes2008). When it is expected to make land fall, and which track it will be taking is still unknown. Although, many Meteorologists are predicting it will make landfall 50 miles West of New Orleans. This will bring the Eastern portion of the storm along the Miss. Gulf Coast and New Orleans.

This brings a great risk to areas affected by Katrina. Many people are still living in FEMA trailers. Today, I saw a tweet from @sunherald that stated Miss. had issued a Mandatory Evacuation for all residents still living in FEMA trailers.

A mandatory evacuation, if necessary, is said to take place some time Sunday for Coastal residents. Already, MDOT has roads such as I-55, I-59 and Hwy 49 set up for 1 way evacuation traffic heading North. These roads are not shut down yet but are prepared to if quickly needed.

There are also buses on call to help evacuate people on the Miss. Coast and…

First Day Back to Class!

At the beginning of the Summer. A few of my friends and I went out shopping (Wilma, Katie, and Sharon). While we were out shopping I bought a Hannah Montana wig. Well the deal was I could buy the wig if I promised to wear it the first day back to class for the Fall semester.

Today I am keeping my end of the bargain. I have Hannah Montana'd myself for class and I am ready to go!

I Auditioned and Rick Roll'd American Idol!

This past Saturday August 9th I auditioned for the popular Fox Television show American Idol. I woke up at 6:00 AM put my wig on and started preparing for a monumental moment. Above is a video of me preparing for my big break.

I arrived at the Auditions and there were already about 50 people in line. As time went on more people began to show up. My Friend Wilma was a good sport and came out to support me and ended up waiting an hour outside while I was in a waiting room with 50 other people waiting to perform in front of a panel of judges.

All of us in the room were very supportive of each other. There were a group of girls who came together to audition who really got the group going. One girl got up and sang Britney Spears Oops I did it again just for fun.

Well, everyone was nice except for one person. Apparently a girl who was one of the first to audition hung out outside with a video camera and trash talked a whole ton of people who were auditioning. Supposedly she was the Bomb? Who …

I Am Trying Out For American Idol!

This Saturday August 9th I will be at Antonelli College from 8-3 trying out for American Idol. I plan on either singing a song by Avril Lavigne, No Doubt, or Hannah Montana. I will be dressed up in my Hannah Montana wig and one of my hottest outfits. If you are in the Jackson area be sure to come by and cheer me on. I may be sitting outside over night so bring me coffee! This is really important to me. It's been one of my dreams for the longest time to star on American Idol. Please come out and support me!

I challenge @iJustine to grow out and donate her hair!

Earlier today GaryVee Challenged Kevin Rose to shave his head. If Kevin did it Gary said he would donate a couple $100 to charity. I think this is a great idea! I wanted to start something similar with the girls.

So I came up with the idea of growing out my hair and donating it to Locks of Love. I challenge @iJustine to do the same. So everyone hit her up on twitter and encourage her to join in with me and then challenge someone else.

Dr. Horrible

For some of you this is old news. You have already watched it and are in awe of the greatness that can come out of a writers strike.

This post is not for you. This is for all of my friends and blog readers that have yet to watch this amazing piece of work. Don't go Pirate the thing either. Forget those Torrents. Seriously get on iTunes and buy this one. IT'S WORTH IT! Not to mention they have all 3 Acts for like $3.99 or something. Not a bad deal.

Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog is one of the best things that could ever happen to the Internet. Not only was it well written, and filmed, and the MUSIC ALONE! I mean come on!!! Ok sorry... It also brings up a huge point.

The future of TV.

That's right! Dr. horrible was released only on the Internet and Exclusively on iTunes. Supposedly it is in the works for it to be released on DVD with Special Features etc (I will be buying this) which rocks. This wasn't just an amazing mini-series. This was Joss Whedon giving Hollywood …

New Facebook Released Today...

Facebook went under the knife today and when it came to it wasn't a pleasant site. The new layout has no real separation or consistency as you switch from tab to tab. It is a mess! I immediately started looking around for help. There were little tags to tell me about the new site but they weren't that helpful. I finally looked up and saw a switch to old Facebook button and breathed a sigh of relief! My friends profiles may drive me crazy with their application disorganization but the new layout was so bad I couldn't navigate. The top bar was a joke and what happened to my easy access side bar? Facebook you disappointed me greatly!!!!!

Here are some issues with the new layout:
1. The Wall-When you click on the wall tab your wall does not come up. Instead all that shows up is your mini-feed. I looked every where for my wall, it seems to have gone missing! ***EDIT*** If you click Posts by others (yeah it's tiny) It will let you see what people are posting on your wall. That…

It's A Twitter Ghost!

Lately I have been getting a ton of followers that are Twitter Spammers. It is really annoying. They follow you then spam you with DM's about their "awesome" website. They follow Thousands of people and have multiple accounts. I'm not a fan of this and I really hope Twitter gets this under control.

Twitter has been acting crazy lately but this was really interesting. I just got an e-mail from twitter saying I had a new follower. I was not excited because I was pretty sure it was going to be another Twitter spammer of doom. I was wrong.

Here is the e-mail:
