Why Twitter shouldn't sell right now

Lately on Twitter I have seen a lot of different people posting about how Twitter should sell to different companies. The main company most people think Twitter should sell to is Facebook. This seems like a good idea because both seem to mesh well together and both are growing quickly and have such a user base.

In reality Twitter may have a lot of users and may be growing every day but it isn't quite ready to be sold. Facebook has been around for a long time and allowed for enough development to be sold.

If you have never seen "An Evening with Kevin Smith" and you are a Kevin Smith fan then you should watch it. Grant, HO, Burt, and I were watching it last night and there is this particular story Kevin Smith tells about dogma and a protest he did against the movie. Here is the clip from "An Evening with Kevin Smith". After you watch it you have to watch the clip that he is talking about below. If you like it you should go buy this movie :)



Here is the actual Protest:


Also, be sure to check out "An Evening with Kevin Smith 2: Evening Harder" It's just as awesome!



Both are only $14.99 on Amazon.

American Idol Season Premiere Tue. & Wed., Jan. 13 & 14 at 8/7c!

Hey Friends!

Back in August I participated in a local audition for the popular Fox TV show American Idol. Although I did not continue on I was told they might use my tape on the show. Everyone be sure to watch on January 13th and 14th for my EPIC Rick Rolling audition. Here is the video I made back in August just for fun :)



Also I wanted to post this video that relates to my previous post. Chris W left a comment talking about a product called the Slap Chop. I had not seen this one but it has Vince from the ShamWow commercials. I looked it up on YouTube and had to share it with you all. It is hilarious!

Enjoy:
