I found a phenomenal gift for a friend the other day. I was in a jam for finding a birthday present. My girlfriend and I both wanted to get her something that would be nice and reflect how much we appreciate this mutual friend, who happens to be a teenager. I pondered this gift giving task for a long time, and couldn’t really come up with something that was really nice yet affordable. Then it dawned on me… women love jewelry, but most jewelry is expensive (at least the good stuff usually). I called up a friend of mine who is a jeweler and asked him for ideas. He pointed me to a product called Precious Pearl.

I couldn’t believe it. You get a pearl that comes inside an oyster and get to put it into a necklace charm. I’m thinking, this was the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. I showed it to a couple of people, and apparently I’m a little behind the times with jewelry because several of them already knew about it.

Long story short… I got the Precious Pearl. My girlfriend supplied the card. And our friend was incredibly excited and thankful to get this really cool gift. She was smiling from ear to ear. When I saw her response, it made me feel so good about the choice I made for her gift. When you want to treat a woman to something nice, get her a Precious Pearl. Her face is going to light up! And the best part about it was that the color she got (you don’t know the color until you open it) was perfect for her complexion. It really was a great experience for everyone.

Ron Paul is EVOL

In a move that’s straight out of the “DOH!” files, Ron Paul’s minions have been showering the Internet (and freeway overpasses) with root of all EVOL. Dana Carvey Church LadyThe idea was to share the “love” of Ron Paul’s R”evol”ution.I’m sure the intentions were good by his campaigners. But you know what they say about good intentions: The road to Hell is paved with good intentions. Wait! Hell also happens to be where EVOL comes from now.

Isn’t that special? 😛

Drink some water… This article, originally from the Associate Press, is rather alarming. For those of you who live in Souther California with me, don’t worry about taking your epileptic and anti-anxiety pills, they are already in our water.

Here are my favorite quotes from the article:

Water providers rarely disclose results of pharmaceutical screenings, unless pressed, the AP found. For example, the head of a group representing major California suppliers said the public “doesn’t know how to interpret the information” and might be unduly alarmed.


Two paragraphs later:

And while researchers do not yet understand the exact risks from decades of persistent exposure to random combinations of low levels of pharmaceuticals, recent studies — which have gone virtually unnoticed by the general public — have found alarming effects on human cells and wildlife.


Maybe the guys representing the major California suppliers should team up with the people who have been doing the recent studies to allow them to remove their heads from their asses. Apparently Cranial Rectalitis is a side affect of decades of exposure to prescription drugs in our drinking water.

I’ve got an Easy Button on my desk at work, and I think I might just need to upgrade soon:

They even have something to help make sure people can avoid your gassidents (gas accidents):

Fart Alert Barricade

The first time I tried the Head Spa (aka Head Massager) from Gadget Universe, I felt like I was auditioning for the remake of Tron. I looked like a total dork, but it felt good. A few minutes into it, and I started noticing something interesting. I was losing head stress. The muscles on my head were being soothed and my nose… Well, my nose was tingling. It was a bizarre feeling. A nice head massage and an intense nasal clearing. Relieving pressure from all sides of the head, inside and out. Now that’s a good head massager!

I’ve been shopping at Sharper Image for as long as I can remember. Back when they finally opened a store in Westlake Village, I couldn’t wait to see all the cool stuff that I had read and heard about for so long. Sharper Image has the coolest innovations.

The Ionic Breeze was something I wanted desperately. The product was so well marketed. You walk into the Sharper Image store and it smelled so good in there.

Now, you walk into Sharper Image… It still smells good, like good Trump Steaks! I’ll take the Filet Mignon medium-rare please. I’m not sure if I want the smell of the Ionic Breeze anymore. Gimme that sweet smell of the best USDA Prime. In fact, I think Sharper Image should get rid of all their gadgets and gizmos and just turn into a quality meat locker. Maybe they can have after hours model parties like that Seinfeld episode with the man hands.

Oh… You have to checkout the exciting message from The Donald on The Sharper Image website. Too funny. Maybe Gadget Universe will pick up Marth Stewart and Hammacher Schlemmer will pick up Rosie.

A friend of mine at work forwarded me the following video from Alanis Morissette on youtube:

This has got to be one of the funniest videos I’ve seen in a long time. In one way it reminds me of the scene in “Blades of Glory” where Will Ferrell is singing “My Humps” and Napoleon Dynamite asks him what that song even means.

What is great about this is that it not only shows that Alanis Morissette has a good sense of humor but also that the Black Eyed Peas have a good sense of humor, since Alanis had to have gotten their permission beforehand. Excellent, funny, I’m rolling on the ground 😛 Weird Al doesn’t even need to spoof this song.

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 -P
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 -D

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!

lrg_spring_heels.jpgA friend of mine sent me the following image he found on the Modern Mechanix blog. He said it was like a pair of naked Gravity Defyer Shoes 😛

Apparently, this is from the September 1939 edition of Mechanix Illustrated. I couldn’t help but chuckle. These clumsy looking shoes were invented by some Swiss shoemaker who wanted to reduce the impact of everyday walking on our bodies.
