Pretty Girls Are Like Cars That Need A Lot Of Oil

alec_greven_nine_year_old_talk_to_girls1That’s what he said, no really – that’s what this little, punk kid said in the book he just published, How to Talk to Girls.

My question is how this lil guy got published:  Did he win a coloring contest at his local Albertson’s or something?

Sirius & XM Merged – What’s In It For You?

What’s In It For You?  Not much!

AALA001008

Glad to know I wasn’t the only one blindsided by all the trickery that went down this week with the covert XM collapse to the Sirius channel line-up.  Until now, I was dippin’-n-sippin’ from both satellite radio providers with anticipation of what the merger would bring.  At one time they said that customers would build their own programming bundles with an assortment of channels that matched their individual interests.  That sounded like a creative and flexible value add, hence my anticipation. 

So far, I’m not impressed.  On my Sirius account, I now have access to 8 more music channels and none of which are related to any genre I’m concerned with.  (See the new Sirius lineup)

My XM relationship feeds through digital cable, and now I essentially have Sirius being pumped into my house.  For true XM’ers, they have 13 new channels while a whole bulk of their other programming got the axe.  (See the new XM lineup)

Now interestingly enough, Sirius is having a tough time staying profitable and just announced a loss of $5 billion.  Can I write my Congressman and express my opinion that if anyone needs a bailout then it is certainly the satellite radio industry company?

Fall Into The Gap – 2008 Holiday Ads

The annual Gap print ads are ready, and they’re good!  I’m sure once their commercials start and I can’t get away from that ‘Best Time of the Year’ propaganda then I’ll once again flip flop and change my opinion some. 

Additionally, their website is primed and ready to go! Lot’s of artists and actors goofing around:  Romany Malco, Jason Biggs, Janelle Monae (my boo!), Flo-Rida, Sandra Bernhard, Selma Blair, and many others…

Anyhow, here’s a look at what to expect this year (arranged in order of my personal preference)!
