Music Choice Overplays Too Many Songs

  I love Music Choice, then again I hate it sometimes. I hate it more than I love it more often now because they are starting to overplay certain songs while others are taking a backseat. In fact one song that seems to be played on every variant of the pop music channels, is Cool Kids by Echosmith. I used to like that song when I first heard it on Music Choice but then I began to despise it. I really despise it. It's on every channel! It won't go away! It can never be undone!
  Music Choice seems to get a hard on for certain artists, such as One Direction, Ecosmith, and Bruno Mars for some reason but they never play enough of artists that do need the airplay and exposure such as Bonnie McKee. I rarely hear her song American Girl on Music Choice anymore. I used to hear it on there once and a while on several of their different genres of pop music channels but hearing Bonnie McKee on there becomes a rare sighting.
  I think Music Choice really needs to stop playing the same damn songs over and over again. This is why I don't listen to the radio anymore in the car since I have a USB drive. I can choose what I want to listen to, without having to hear the same song being played at the top of every hour. Plus you don't have to bother with changing the stations.

Trouble By Bonnie McKee Album Review

 Today will mark the 10th anniversary of the release of Bonnie McKee's debut album, Trouble. It was released on September 28th 2004 which like most CD release dates was a Tuesday. You might not have heard of Bonnie McKee before, but you've probably have heard some of her work as a songwriter, co-writing hit songs with Katy Perry and many other major pop artists of today.
Album artwork for Trouble

  All of the songs on Trouble were written by Bonnie McKee herself when she was still in high school. All of the songs are great for someone who wrote them all by herself. However after putting out two singles, Trouble, and Somebody, the songs failed to chart and the album became a flop. The single Somebody was even featured on the Soundtrack for Win A Date With Ted Hamilton. Bonnie McKee was later dropped from Reprise Records after the album flopped.
  However since the album was a flop, doesn't mean its a bad album, it's not. The album is pretty amazing and it is on my top 10 favorite albums list. It's constantly has a place in my 5 disc CD changer, my USB drive in the car and on my phone. That just goes to show you that I can't get enough of it.
  The tracklisting for Trouble is as follows,
  1. Trouble
  2. When It All Comes Down
  3. Open Your Eyes
  4. Somebody
  5. A Voice That Carries
  6. Honey
  7. Green Grass
  8. January
  9. Marble Steps
  10. Sensitive Subject Manner
  11. I Hold Her
  12. Confessions Of A Teenage Girl
 Even though Trouble flopped, Bonnie McKee has stated in interviews that she practically disowned the album. She even has stated that she can't even listen to it anymore because it is too painful. Many bands and artists have disowned earlier albums such as Styx with their first 4 albums on Wooden Nickel Records.
   This album is pretty hard to find on CD. Just how hard to find is it? Well just go into your local record store and look for this album and see if they have one. You probably won't find it. I went to several F.Y.E.'s and even the local independent record store looking for this CD and they didn't have it. I was lucky enough to get a brand new copy from a third party seller on Amazon for $20 back in February this year. I wouldn't normally spend $20 on a CD unless its a limited edition film score from La La Land Records. However on an interesting note when I bought the CD on Amazon at the time there was a ton of used copies of Trouble on Amazon and they since have been all sold. People are getting into her music thanks to her new single American Girl.
  On the other hand you can still buy the MP3 version of this album from iTunes or AmazonMP3 for around $9.99 which is the cost of the monthly subscription rate for the WWE Network.
  Now my favorite songs from Trouble are Trouble, When It All Comes Down, Somebody, A Voice That Carries, January, and I Hold Her. I believe that all of the songs on Trouble had the potential to become hit singles. Overall I give Trouble five out of five stars because it's an album that doesn't get the credit that It deserves. It's an underdog of an album. I think that the album could have gone far if the label would have promoted it properly but they didn't.
  Trouble will always be one of my favorite albums. There's no doubt about that.

I Finally Found Planters Peanut Oil

  I never blog about food, but I have been searching for Planters Peanut Oil because I had a conversation with my Aunt whose husband used to work for Standard Brands who owned Planters Peanuts. We somehow got into a discussion about whether or not Planters still made peanut oil since I couldn't find it on stores shelves. Walmart didn't have it, Giant didn't either. By dumb luck today, I was in Boyer's Food Market in Hazleton, PA where of all places I found Planters Peanut Oil.
  I was so excited that I found the peanut oil. I wasn't going to buy it because I didn't need it. I immediately called my Aunt on my cell phone to tell her and my uncle the good news that I found Planters Peanut Oil, which seemed like I had discovered a long lost civilization. I think that the cause of me finding the Planters Peanut Oil was because of the fact my Aunt sent me an antique cast iron Mr. Peanut bank which i received in the mail today. It must have been a good luck charm or a sign of some sort that I was destined to find Planters Peanut Oil.
  On a side note I went to Walmart today and found that they had remnants of Mattel Elite 27 where there was one Rob Van Dam left, but It was a collectors nightmare when you don't have enough money to purchase it. I didn't like the headscan on the Elite 27 Rob Van Dam, so I passed on it. I'll wait for his basic when it hits stores shelves.

Bending A New Era 59Fifty

  Back in 2009 I won a custom New Era 59Fifty snapback hat designed by famous graffiti artist Claw Money in the Mountain Dew Green Label gear promotion. Anyway I kept the hat with a flat brim and with the original sticker on it until now. I had been contemplating whether I should bend the brim or not and to take the shiny sticker off.
  Well after many years of contemplating, I finally decided to bend the brim and remove the sticker. I rarely wore the hat because the flat brim actually hurt my head. No really It did so I avoided buying flat brimmed New Era hats. 59Fifty hats are meant to be bent. So take the freaking sticker off and bend the brim. It won't damage the hat at all. The fashion police aren't going to come to your door and arrest you for bending the flat brim and removing the sticker.
   I have seen a few people who have bought 59Fifty's and bent the brim and removed the sticker. I saw a person at work who had on what looked like a 59Fifty with a bent brim. I asked him if that was originally a flat brimmed hat. He said it was and I would never wear the hat like my son has his flat. I was proud of that man for bending the brim on his 59Fifty. I know another person who has two of them from different Minor League teams, guess what he bent the brim and took the sticker off of his hats as well. Those two people I saw with bent 59Fifty's aren't thug gangsta's. They bent their hat's like a respectable baseball player does.
   In fact the official on field hat of the MLB and MiLB is the New Era 59Fifty. Now 99.9% of the players bend the brims slightly or bend it fully. Having a bent brim blocks the sun out of your eyes. Having a flat brim, doesn't help that much. There are a handful of players who don't bend their brims, and they look like a poser from the hood.
  So in the end you can bend the brim on a 59Fifty hat.

My Love Hate Relationship With MusicChoice

  I love MusicChoice. They are a great alternative when there is literally nothing interesting on TV. MusicChoice is a series of commercial free music channels that are available through certain cable companies. There is a plethora of different types of music ranging from pop to classical with over 40 channels. You're probably wondering why it's a love hate relationship. Here's why.
  MusicChoice gets a lot of album information wrong. That's right they screw up the original album title where the song is originally from. You mostly see this on the MusicChoice 70s channel, where a majority of the songs played according to MusicChoice are from some sort of compilation album such as Didn't It Blow Your Mind: Super Hits from the 70s Vol 15 or something along those lines. Nothing pisses me off more than incorrect album titles. Now we all know that those songs come from an original album from the artist right? Yes they do, but why does MusicChoice have to list them from a greatest hits album or some other compilation album? I guess the programmer are just too lazy to put down the original album title or go take the time to research what album it was originally on.
  Now my second biggest gripe is the facts about the artists. MusicChoice has been known to put incorrect info about the artist from time to time in the Did You Know section of the screen. Another thing that grinds my gears to no end is when there are no facts for a new artist. Instead they put music industry history facts, or that music copyrights end 70 years after an artist dies. This is common on the Metal channel since they probably don't want to put facts about certain death metal bands being satanic or whatnot. You see a lot of facts about guitar history there.
  Finally my third biggest gripe is the Stage and Screen Channel. This channel is great if you like film scores or Broadway songs. But there is a catch if you are a film score aficionado like me, the film scores are played during the nighttime hours and the downside to that is that the Broadway Songs get the most airplay during the daytime hours. I have gotten so disgusted with the Stage and Screen channel that I don't put it on anymore.
   So there you have it why I have a love hate relationship with MusicChoice.

Lightsabers Then and Now

Back when the original Star Wars movie came out in 1977, the Lightsaber's were much different then they appeared in 2005's Episode III Revenge of the Sith. Why is that you say? Well for one the designs are slightly different in episode IV than in episode III.  For instance the belt clips. In the prequel trilogy, the lightsabers attached to a Jedi's belt via a Bridgeport Rig like device, where a black knob would slide onto a rig on the left side of the belt. In the original trilogy, they were hung on a belt via a d-ring on the bottom of the hilt and a hook on the belt.
  That's a pretty big noticeable difference there. That brings me to my next argument, the activator buttons. In episode IV, Luke Skywalker's lightsaber had a different activator button than it did have in episode III. WTF George Lucas. You've already ruined continuity with these stupid prequels with the lightsabers slightly different design features. Also the Handgrips are slightly different in the prequels than their original counterparts, ie Obi Wan-Kenobi's lightsaber had rougher handgrips in episode III.
  Also lightsabers weren't used like every second in the original trilogy unlike the prequels.

Lady Gaga Haters

What I say to all of the haters
  I have been slacking on my blogging lately so please excuse me for that. Anyway as of lately I have been surrounded by Lady Gaga haters. My mom and my Aunt can't stand her. My aunt thinks that Lady Gaga is a lesbian whereas in fact Lady Gaga is bisexual and likes men for the most part. In addition to my aunt's perception of Lady Gaga, she also thinks her outfits are just too strange. I respect that statement, because that's very understandable, but that's what most of her haters think of her.
Lady Gaga doesn't understand the Hate
  My mother on the other hand thinks that Lady Gaga is pig. My mother also has a nickname for Lady Gaga, she calls her Lady Caca. My mother absolutely HATED Lady Gaga's newest album, ARTPOP. My mother didn't like how most of the songs were about being touched and sex. She also hated the album art and thought it was dirty. The other day I was looking at the lyric book from ARTPOP in the car and my mother saw some of her poses in the pictures, and asked me if I had no shame. I gave her a dirty look and explained it was an art form.  
  I used to hate Lady Gaga for some reason when she first burst onto the music scene. I guess it was those weird outfits she wore. I never even listened to one of her songs to give her a chance. I eventually listened to one of her songs, Alejandro, back in 2010 in my friends car and I had no Idea who it was. That song got into my head and I guess it was Karma getting me.
   So please stop hating Lady Gaga and stop giving her a deaf ear and give her music a try.

4 Bad Tattoo Ideas

  A while back I blogged about Twilight tattoos and how they were a bad idea. Now here are more tattoos that are so stupid, you will keep facepalming yourself nonstop.
  To your right you will see a tattoo of Mr. Peanut. I love Mr. Peanut, but I wouldn't go to the extreme to getting him tattooed to my arm. It's just weird.

Now somebody was stupid enough to get Judge Judy tattooed on their skin. It's just god awful and creepy.

Someone was even stupid enough to get Joe Dirt tattooed to their body.

                                           Holy crap, someone was so drunk that they got Oprah Tattooed on their body. Creepy.

Useless Fact of the Day Number 5: American Motors Keys

  It has been awhile since I have blogged about a useless fact of the day. Today's useless fact of the day is about car keys again. This time it is related to Freightliner keys in a way.
  In 1970 American Motors Corporation or AMC, debuted a new car key design that looks almost identical to a General Motors key. In fact the keys are the same shape and size but the most notable difference is that the AMC keys have a deeper groove on them. The groove is a bit bigger and lower than the groove on the General Motors key. Both keys were made by Briggs and Stratton, which was the biggest supplier of OEM car keys at that time.
  Here's the kicker about American Motors keys, the ignition key has also been used by heavy duty truck manufacturers to this very day. Those companies who shared the same keys, are Freightliner, Western Star, International Harvester, International Trucks, and Mack Trucks, even Volvo used the single cut key at one point. The OEM key name for the American Motors key is 1970AM hence the year 1970 in the name of the key part code.
Freightliner Key
Mack Trucks Key
AMC Keys
International Harvester Keys

People I Want To Bring Back From The Dead

  In the movie Aladdin, the Genie has rules, one of those rules is that he can't raise the dead. However I can assure you that would be one of everyone's wishes. Now onto the point of my blog post. I haven't blogged in over a week so I am slacking off this year so excuse me for that.
  Now there are so many people I would love to bring back from the dead to give them an interview. One of them happens to be my Grandfather. My Grandfather died when I was a freshman in high school so I never got to ask him questions about his successful business he owned. Those questions I want to ask him, my parents cannot answer them.
  The second person I would like to bring back from the dead for an interview is Jim Henson. Why Jim Henson? Well I would love to ask him questions about certain Sesame Street News Flash segments, particularly the one where Kermit the Frog ends up wearing Cinderella's dress. I always wanted to know how Jim Henson felt about putting Kermit in a dress.
  Macho Man Randy Savage. Now I would bring him back so he could appear for WrestleMania XXX so he could end his real life feud with Hulk Hogan and challenge him to a match to see whose the real man.
  The next person who I would bring back from the dead is Big Boss Man. He's one of the many WWE superstars who died too young. He was one of my idols growing up as a child in the 1990s.
  Finally the last person I would bring back from the dead is not really a person, but a dog. My Dalmatian Homer was the best dog I ever had even though we had him for about 4 years. He was an older dog when we found him and he really had a place in my heart. I am still not over his death to this date. He died in 2008 and I really miss playing fetch with him.

Hot Wheels Monster Jam Zombie

  Today I took a quick run to Walmart to pick up a few things and I checked out the toy dept as usual. I first looked to see if there were any new WWE figures there but there was no new ones. Anyway I checked the Hot Wheels Isle to find some new Monster Jam trucks. I noticed there was a Zombie on the pegs so I grabbed it and bought it. Now Zombie is one of the more unique trucks that Hot Wheels has made. The casting is super detailed for a Monster Jam truck. The paint job is amazing. Zombie even has a torn necktie under the grille.
  Zombie is a new for 2014 truck and is a hot commodity right now both in 1:64 and 1:24 scales. So get Zombie now while it's hot so you don't have to resort to eBay Scalper prices. Also Zombie comes with a figure.

Don't Adopt Internationally.

  More and more I see more people adopting babies from other countries and it really grinds my gears. I'm all for adoption but I find it wrong when people don't adopt domestically. More and More people are adopting babies from foreign countries than adopting babies within the USA. Why go through all that trouble just to adopt a baby from a third world country when you can adopt one right here in the good old US of A.
  I just don't get the appeal of traveling out of the country going out of your way just to adopt a baby from some underdeveloped, underprivileged nation. I don't get why people do this. It must be a trendy thing to do. That's right, it's a hip trend right now to adopt a baby from some country like Somalia.
   Now here's why you should adopt a baby domestically. Many babies in the United States never get adopted right away or for a few years because people will adopt internationally. Every time you adopt a baby internationally you give a baby in the USA less of a chance of finding a good loving home. My parents were foster parents for many years and seen many babies they took care of get adopted by good loving parents. Although I was only a baby myself when they were foster parents, I can only imagine the joy it was for the parents who adopted the babies my parents took care of.
   Whatever happened to that concept of adopting babies from the USA? Many people still adopt domestically but those adoptions are overshadowed by the countless international adoptions that Americans do. My brother and his wife just adopted a baby and I am very proud of them for adopting a baby from the United States. I know they have a good home and my Sister in law is a great mother. They did a good thing by not adopting internationally. Just because some celebrity decides to adopt a baby from some third world country doesn't mean you have to do the same thing. If you do decide to adopt a baby, adopt domestically.

  Today I thought I would keep it going with these 1-900 number commercials. Up for mockery today is a 1-900 number where you can talk to Santa Claus, (a recording) of course. Now as I said earlier in the 1-900-9099-CRY that 1-900 numbers were a huge fad back in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Now this one must have been preying on kids to call the 1-900 number to talk to Santa Claus without getting their parent's permission.
   I can bet you any amount of money that lots of children called this 1-900 number without getting their parents permission and getting into a lot of trouble. This hotline was just asking for kids to call this number without getting their parents permission. Because what kid wouldn't want to talk to Santa Claus? Not to many kids. This hotline must have made a huge amount of money from kids calling without getting Mommy or Daddy to give them permission to call. I love in these commercials that are geared toward kids to get their parents permission before they call the hotline.
   Now this Santa Claus Hotline cost $2 for the first minute and $0.45 for each additional minute. It's a real money maker there.

Tuesday, February 11, 2014


  Ok today I thought I would write about a 1-900 number commercial. Back in the 1980s and early 1990s there were tons of ads on TV for 1-900 numbers. Practically every celebrity that was popular back then had their own 1-900 hotline. Then there was the random 1-900 numbers for stupid crap such as Creep Phone and yes, a Santa Claus hotline. But no 1-900 number has to be stupider than this one I am writing about today.
The Number shown in the video is different because it might be an earlier version of the number.
  If you are wondering if there really was such a thing as a 1-900 number for crying, you'll be shocked to find out that it really did exist. 1-900-9099-CRY was the hotline you would call to make you cry. Ok let's get this thing straight, the only thing you'll be crying about is how much you were charged for calling this 1-900 number on your phone bill. That's right you had to pay a whopping $2 for the first minute and $0.45 for each additional minute. Geez it sounds like a scam right? It in fact is a scam because when you called 1-900-9099-CRY you got a prerecorded sob story that would supposedly make you cry when you listened to it.
  Now if you called this number, you needed to get your head examined. This was a total waste of $2. Who called things like this? I don't even want to know who did call these stupid gimmick hotlines because they are total idiots who did call them. As PT Barnum once said, There's a Sucker born every minute.

2014 Is Another Great Year for Hot Wheels

  You know the old slogan, The Hess Truck is back and It's better than ever? Well I guess you can apply that to Hot Wheels cars every year. It seems like every year now the basic lineup gets better and better than the previous year. Why is that? Well the good folks at Mattel seem to outdo themselves every year and that's a good thing. Here is why 2014 is a great year for Hot Wheels.
  For Starters we got an upcoming Mastretta MXR which is a Mexican car, a first for Hot Wheels and will make an obscure car for anyone's collection. Then you got a 80 Dodge Power Wagon a LaFerarri, a 73 Dodge Charger, a 1966 Mercury Comet Cyclone, a Koenigsegg Agera R. In addition to those upcoming cars, we have already seen the Alfa Romeo 8C, 1990 Honda Civic EF, Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, Porsche Panamera, The Jetsons Capsule Car, Max Steel Turbo Racer, The Datsun 620, 1963 Aston Martin DB5, 2014 COPO Camaro, and 1974 Brazilian Dodge Charger. I love how Mattel seems to be on a Brazilian kick lately.
  Also the Monster Jam trucks seem to be off to a great start as well. We already got an updated Batman, a non mud trucks Superman, an updated Avenger. Some of the new Models are Scooby Doo

I Hate Greatest Hits Albums

  One of the things I despise the most is greatest hits albums. They are pointless and are a huge waste of money. I get the fact that they are made to make a quick buck for the record labels and might contain one or two new songs on them. On the other hand they seem to clog up the racks at the record store.
  Most fans despise greatest hits albums because they don't want to spend more money just for two new songs. I have to agree on that 100%. Greatest hits albums are a disease. Everytime I go into Kmart and look at the $5 CD's they have 99.999 % of them are some form of compilation album such as Greatest hits albums or Extended versions. Listen up record labels, nobody wants to buy extended versions or greatest hits albums!
  Greatest Hits albums make no sense at all. For example, Nine Inch Nails was supposed to put out a contractually obligated greatest hits album for their former record label, Universal Music Group, or UMG for short. The album was supposed to have two new songs on it. Here's how Trent Reznor outsmarted UMG, he started out making the two new songs for the greatest hits album and turned them into a brand new Nine Inch Nails album, Hesitation Marks. So Trent Reznor basically gave UMG a middle finger when it came to the Greatest Hits album. It would be weird to hear songs like Head Like a Hole, Down In It, Closer, Starfuckers Inc, Only, March of the Pigs, The Perfect Drug all on one CD when they are meant to be heard on their original albums.
  Also Best buy has tons of Greatest Hits albums that are being shelfwarmers. Move over Rey Mysterio and John Cena there's a new king of the shelfwarmers in town.

Reproduction Alcatraz Inmate Cup vs Real Inmate Cup.

Real Cup
Here is how to tell the difference between a real Alcatraz Inmate cup and the replica sold at Alcatraz. The real cup has a slightly different shape and handle than the replica has and instead of having USP Alcatraz on the side it has F.P. Alcatraz on the bottom.

Concealed Weapons Permit Badges

  Nothing has to be stupider than Concealed Weapons Permit badges. Now why are they so stupid? Well to start off, they are dorky and make you look like a complete fool. I can just see people now who are trying to impersonate a police officer with these since they look like a real police badge.
  Now why would people buy these things. It is either one of two things. A. They want to look badass when they showoff their concealed weapons permit. B. they make no sense whatsoever. Now every website and seller that sells these Concealed Weapons Permit Badges has a disclaimer that says
something along these lines, not to be used to impersonate a law enforcement officer. Now I can understand how a concealed weapons permit badge can be used to impersonate a police officer due to the fact that they look like a police badge.
  But why do they make these even? They probably don't even sell. I mean every surplus and shooting supply stores sell them. So do they even sell? Apparently they do because everyone and their brother is selling them.

  Many years ago there was a Less than truckload company called Guaranteed Overnight Delivery or G.O.D. for short. They had a 1-800 number. That number was 1-800-CALL-GOD. Now I can only imagine the amount of prank calls they must have gotten from atheists and people who want to talk to God. I can imagine a call going along these lines...
G.O.D. Trucking
  Person who works for G.O.D.: Thank you for calling G.O.D. how may I help you today?
  Caller: Hello is Jesus there?
  G.O.D. Employee: No this a trucking company there is a person who works here by the name of Jesus he's Mexican.
  Caller: [Hangs Up] Laughing
  G.O.D. Employee: [facepalm and immediately talks to supervisor about umpteenth prank call.
 Now G.O.D. went out of business over 10 years ago and  I miss seeing their trucks on the highway.

The Top 10 Worst Bootleg Action Figures of All Time

  Today I thought I would write about bootleg toys. Nothing is more hilarious than bootleg toys. Some of them are so bad they're good. While others are so bad they just cause instant facepalms. So get ready for some bootleg toys.
1. Robert Cop 2. Ok this is an obvious bootleg Robocop figure. It's so bad it's good like Robocop's TV edit version. This toy is one bad Mother Crusher. I love how toy bootleggers change the name of the toy trying to be stealthy.
2.  Star Night motorcycle. This toy has fail written all over it in permanent marker and it ain't coming off with Goo Gone. So this toy is a huge fail because it's Darth Vader on a police motorcycle. You're argument is invalid.
3. Mr. Rock. Ok this toy is an obvious bootleg Mr. Spock figure. It's so bad it deserves to be placed in a dumpster for all eternity. This figure gives me nightmares just looking at it. The figure looks nothing like Leonard Nimoy. Don't beam this figure up.
4. Sense of Right Alliance. Ok this toy has no continuity whatsoever. It's quite random at best. How is it random? well for one it contains Lightning McQueen, Batman, Superman, a Power Ranger, Spider-Man, and yes Shrek. Why in the hell is Shrek and Lightning McQueen in this set? They aren't even superheros for Pete's sake. This is a Super Fail.
5. Super Heroes Justice League. Here is another crappy attempt at making a 4pack of Bootleg action figures. This one makes no sense whatsoever. Why is that? well for starters you have Spider-Man, Batman, Naruto and Iron Man. Why is Naruto in there? It's pretty awful and a pathetic attempt at making the most common form of Bootleg action figures there are. Also If you have noticed ths
6. Harry Potter Batmobile. I cannot describe this with enough words. This makes no sense whatsoever. Harry Potter does not drive the goddamn 1989 Batmobile. Chicks don't love the car when Harry Potter is driving the Batmobile. This is the ultimate Fail when it comes to bootleg action figure vehicles. Whoever designed this bootleg gem had to be high on drugs or drunk when this was conceived.
7. Super Avengers Beat Magnum King. What in the hell is this piece of garbage? It's a bootleg unmasked Batman figure in knockoff Avengers packaging. This is really awful as in bottom of the barrel awful. If there is bootleg toys hall of fame, this figure deserves a spot in it.

8. Batman Telephone Car. All I can say is What is this I don't even... I mean really what are these bootleg toy designers on when they create these things. A Batman Telephone Car? C'Mon. I'd rather have a Bat Credit Card.

9. Spader-Man. This one is pretty much self explanatory. I mean it's just Spider-Man being cleverly disguised as his bizzaro alter ego Spader-Man right? Nope Chuck Testa. Nope Nope Nope it ain't Chuck Testa either. It's just the most awful bootleg Spider-Man figure ever.
10. Specialman. It's a Bird! It's a Plane! It's Superman's mentally challenged cousin Specialman. This figure isn't that bad and what kills it is the fact that it is called Specialman. I guess the toymakers of these bootlegs try to change the names of the figures they are copying to avoid copyright. Specialman is just plain bad,
Conclusion. Well my final thoughts on these 10 bootleg toys are going to be frank. These toys are so bad they are good. You just have to see them in person to appreciate all of the hard work these bootleggers put in to making them. All joking aside you should never buy these bootleg action figures because you would be supporting piracy and intellectual copyright theft.

Useless Fact of The Day Number 4: Interstate Batteries Trucks

An older styled painted truck with sponsor decals
  Well I am back with the 4th installment of the Useless Fact of The Day. Today's topic is Interstate Batteries trucks. The Interstate Batteries trucks are painted and modeled after the number 18 Toyota Camry driven by Kyle Busch that is occasionally sponsored by Interstate Batteries. This is nothing new. I believe this has been going on since Interstate Batteries began sponsoring NASCAR's back in the early 1990s. Some of the Interstate Batteries delivery trucks even have the number 18 on the box on the back or on the door of the truck. Some even have sponsor stickers on the trucks to make it look like the NASCAR Even more.
A modern styled NASCAR look minus the sponsor decals

The Three Most Useless Things That Come With A Car

  Some cars come with cool bells and whistles while they also come with two useless things, valet keys and the cigarette lighters. So why are they useless?
  Let's start off with the valet key. Face it do you know where your valet key is since you bought your new car. If not that pretty much explains why it is useless. The valet key is practically lost the day the car is bought. People seem to put the 3rd key away somewhere and forget where they put it when they go to trade the car in. In addition to being lost, people just don't even use the key when they get the car valet parked. Yeah it pretty much defeats it's purpose if people don't use the Valet key when they get there car valet parked.
   Now onto the cigarette lighter. The cigarette lighter is one of those things that nobody uses, execpt for the jack that you can plug a GPS system in or cell phone charger. That's what the cigarette lighter outlet is used for not for smoking. I don't smoke so I don't use the cigarette lighter that comes with the car. I can assure you that people who smoke in their cars don't use the car's cigarette lighter. Years ago Subaru stopped putting cigarette lighters in their cars but keeping the outlet and replacing the cigarette lighter with a plastic dummy. I think the Subaru Forrester still has the dummy cigarette lighter while others have a regular lighter.
  On a side note let's add the ashtray as well. People who smoke in their cars NEVER use the ashtray that comes with the car. What do they do? they open their window and hold the cigarette out the window and flick ashes out the window, not the ashtray. What is the ashtray good for then? Storage for toothpicks and pieces of gum.

Top 20 Lego Architecture Sets That Should Be Made

  I love Lego Architecture sets. I've been hooked on them ever since I got the White House for Christmas a few years ago. Since then I have gotten many more sets such as Villa Savoye, Robie House, Imperial Hotel, UN headquarters, Leaning Tower of Pisa, Farnsworth House, Brandenburg Gate and Fallingwater. The architecture sets are one of the best things that Lego has created in the past few years next to the Modular Houses line.
  Now there are some buildings I want to see in the Architecture line in the future. So here is my list of buildings that should be made.
  1. Renascence Center- General Motors Headquarters
  2. Washington Monument
  3. The Alamo
  4. United States Capitol building
  5. The Pentagon
