Anyone who says the Bush stimulus package of a $600 tax rebate is not going to stimulate the US Economy hasn’t been watching The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch. I’ve seen more millionaires made from $600 or less on that show than I ever thought was possible. The moral of the story: Your wealth is what you make of it.
Every time I watch that show, I’m completely inspired. Regular people making it big because they had a dream that they pursued. My favorite episode was a few days ago. I can’t remember the guy’s name, but there was a venture capitalist on the show who said that the “side job” never becomes the next million dollar idea. Got me thinking about how many “side jobs” I’ve had over the years. None of them took off. Watching the show, I see nearly all of the stories have something in come: they quit their job went after the dream.
What dream is worth dreaming but not pursuing? Time to take the plunge. Grab that $600 tax rebate and do something with it!
Nearly a week into 2008, and I am long overdue for a post. What better way than to recap my favorites of 2007:
Favorite blog on my blogroll: 800lb Gorilla
Favorite color: Powder blue from the San Diego Charger jerseys
Favorite day: Day before my birthday (My brother and I ran the LA Triathlon Sprint)
Favorite city: Many to choose from, but gotta love Chicago (even during February)
Favorite SkyMall gadget: Gotta love the Gravity Defyer Shoes
Favorite conspiracy theory: Tom Cruise was cloned by Xenu and the clone is the crazy one we’ve seen in recent years
Favorite moment at work: There are so many to choose from. While the Montel Williams show was interesting and The Talking Show was a first, neither of them is the top choice. Not quite the top either, the GBK Oscars Gift Suite was certainly enjoyable, as was the Scriptwriter’s Showcase. I even learned about how bad the strike would be months before it happened. Even though having Reggie Bush on the cover of the magazine was nice, that too was not my favorite moment. My favorite moment at work definitely has to be when I realized I had a great advertisement.
Favorite dance event: 2007 US Open. The Moorpark College Swing Dance Team received second place in their very first team competition at the US Open. I was one of the founding members of the college club at Moorpark, so it was particularly enjoyable to see them do so well in their first competition.
Favorite radio moment: When I was doing the Gadget Panel Radio show while on the road, heading to a Dodgers game. My phone cut out and Gadget Panelist Vadim was unable to get himself on the phone circuit. Great radio!
Favorite blog I didn’t write: The blog recapping my trip to New Zealand with the 20GB of pictures and photos I took while down under.
Favorite Movie: Ratatouille. The little ones teach us so much in life.
The talKing Show host, Christine Eads, learns some Salsa from Four time World Mayan Salsa Dance Champion Liz Lira. One of my favorite comedians, Adam Hunter, even tries out some moves (I think more moves on Christine than on the actual dance floor).
Liz Lira is a great dancer and a wonderful personality. If you have a chance to meet her, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. She’s a very dedicated dancer and one of the nicest dance instructors I know. The dance community needs more Liz Liras!

Christine Eads is the host of a new variety television talkshow: The talKing Show. In this clip, she talks with the show’s DJ D.J. about American Idol, Blake Lewis, and beatboxing. She even tries out some beatboxing herself. She should stick to her day job with hosting her XM Radio show Broadminded and The talKing Show. I don’t think we’ll be seeing her on American Idol any time soon 😛

I had the Home Theater Watch at the 2007 GBK Oscar show. Like I mentioned in previous blogs, Billy Wirth, Shawn Hatosy, Joel Moore, and Warren G all loved the Home Theater Watch. It wasn’t a huge hit for the female celebrities, but there were plenty of women taking a look at the watch.
But this isn’t about the Oscars or celebrities. This is about my very own Home Theater Watch experience. Now, I’ll admit that I’m not much of a nerd. While I’m sure that my sister is laughing her butt off right now at that statement, I swear I’m not a nerd. Honestly! This watch is actually really cool.
Plug it into your MAC or PC. It uses a micro USB cable and is auto detected by both in my case. Although, be a lil’ careful with the MAC because its wide open folks! Don’t start deleting files that you *think* you don’t need. You probably do.
Anyway, getting back to the coolness of this watch. I was totally blown away by this cool product. It really is like Joel Moore said, “It’s like an iPod for your wrist.” Yet the Home Theater Watch also has the added coolness factor of being a watch. Something you wear on your wrist that tells time. I was sporting it at the office today, and people were all begging me to see what the watch can do. There are dozens or people who have written about the Home Theater Watch:
Gear Live had something to say
Luxist recommends it while you are standing in line while out and about
SciFi.com even pointed out that you can watch a full length film or a couple of episodes of Prison Break
Coolest Gadgets pointed out the usefulness during a traffic jam
Wrist Dreams… Well, I’m not sure what to make about their name to be honest with you
Book of Joe wants the manufacturer to promise “Your friends and family will be eager to spend time with you….”. How do you become the most popular blogging anesthesiologist? I’m sure that the first step is to start blogging
So, everyone at work is following me around…
Does it play movies? Yep!
Does it play music? Yep!
Does it have a voice recorder? Uh…
I didn’t even realize this until after I had shot the video. See and hear the Home Theater Watch video I posted on youtube.
So, when the controller came by my office to tell me that one of my biggest marketing channels had posted a FAT profit for Q1, I was excited because I had it all on audio. I was testing the recording feature when she came by, so I’m not going to make a practice out of recording conversations, but it just kinda happened. Hopefully the FBI will make note of that when they scan this website and let me slide
And, BTW. At the time I wrote this blog, there was a 5 question survey on gadgetuniverse.com that claims you can enter to win a Home Theater Watch. I don’t know the details or if there is a deadline, but this watch is worth giving it a shot. I’ll take another one!

I’ve posted a few things about Mr. Fire, Dr. Joe Vitale regarding the Gravity Defyer Shoes. I am an owner of several of his books and frequent reader of his Mr. Fire Blog. Today, he posted a blog about an amazing hoax he hired Alan Abel to stage in order to promote his incredible book “The Attractor Factor”.
I spent some time on Alan’s website today reading the various stories about his hoaxes and watching video from some of the most entertaining hoaxes I’ve ever seen. My personal favorite was in regards to the Citizens Against Public Breast Feeding, which loosely ties into my previous blog about the Tiddy Bear.
Well, see for yourself. You will get a great chuckle…
