Ninja Assasin Review

So we went and saw this yesterday... yes I know nothing says being thankful more than assasinations by ninjas. :) It was alright, not bad, but not that great either. About hour and a half in I was like come on already. There was so much blood too. It was insane. There would never be that much! If you like ninjas and martial arts then this is for you. If not, don't expect too much.

In the Spirit of New Moon and Twilight....

Here's a pretty funny exclusive vid from funny or die. And superman is playing edward!

Take Care!

The Twilight Saga: New Moon

Just went and saw New Moon at the Arclight.

I must say I was quite worried with Summit rushing this one out and shooting it so quickly, but I must say it was rather good, dare I even say, better than Twilight. I guess throwing a lot of money can really speed up the process.

I really like how they kept quite true to the book and the CGI wolves didn't dominate the screen. The only part I did not care for was Edward's hairy chest in Italy - What the hell was up with that? He's supposed to be super smooth people, not hairy! I also found it quite funny that Jacob was the most in shape wolf of the pack. They couldn't get those guys to work out some before shooting, come on, they're being paid!

And somehow get this the opening day numbers for this film surpassed the opening day of Dark Knight. That's pretty crazy. Just shows how a little love can go a long way filmmakers, its not always about explosions and fight scenes aka "Face Punch".


Take Care!

P.S. Here's a Sneak Peak at the first Eclipse Poster.

Being Frugal

I found some great tips to save money - as I'm sure we're all in a money crunch right now.

Baking Soda Saves a Bundle

You can clean sinks, wash your hair -- comes out soft, eliminating shampoos and cream rinse. Brush your teeth and it controls breath. Great in the fridge to eliminate odors. I also clean my ceramic stove top with it. About every fourth cleaning I use the real stuff, as it gives the polished look, baking soda does not. I use it on my jacquzzi bath tub, and shower. Get a big box at Costco, try it and see you can save a lot of money. It even cleans your car battery. Make a paste, put it on the terminals, and watch that stuff just get eaten away.

In Debt? Make Weekly Payments

You can pay the same dollar amount per month on your loan, but by splitting the amount up to weekly payments, you'll knock more interest off your loan and pay it off sooner without even paying any higher monthly payments. Set up an automatic payment for each week and watch your loan go away more quickly.

Cheaper Cleaning Solution

Add equal parts bleach and Pine-Sol (about 1/8 cup each )in a spray bottle and fill the rest with water. The mixture works great for cleaning the bathrooms, kitchen, and floors. It saves a lot of money and cleans and deodorizes at the same time.

Unplug everything

If you're not lucky enough to have utilities included (of which you should still do this anyway to help the environment) unplug anything you are not using. When you're done with the toaster, unplug it. Same with the microwave, computer, tv etc. It'll save you a bundle in the long run!

Coupon Central

eBAY. That's right. You can buy coupons for ANYTHING and if your grocery store doubles or triples coupons, you are already saving money. You can purchase coupons, rebates, and more. Just type it in! Not only do you save money, but TIME. Why buy 10 newspapers for that $1 off coupon on Charmin ($10) when you can get them so much cheaper?

Grocery Guru

From a source: I haven't paid OOP (out of pocket) money for many items including milk, toilet paper, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, band-aids, cleaners, and many more items since last October 2008. I achieve this by keeping a very organized coupon box, and utilizing the extra care program at CVS and Walgreens with the coupons. I have even been able to take hundreds of dollars of items to a low income family in need. I treat this like a job and it pays me very well and helps me to save thousands each year off my grocery food bill. Cha-Chang!

Look for Manager Specials

Check out the Manager's Specials/Clearance areas of your grocery meat department. Yeah, I know, at first it sounds icky. But the fact is that the stores cannot sell meat past its selling date so there are no worries there. The meat is still fresh, still tasty, and prices are 30-50% lower -- that's huge! It's a great way to enjoy better cuts of meat, too, like New York or Filet which you might not normally buy because of price. Plus if you freeze it immediately you can prolong its shelf life a while longer.

From Rags to Riches

If you're one who loves paper towels. There's a better solution, buy a bunch of cheap absorbent rags (say from the dollar store) and reuse them. It will save you lots over a year's time!

Recycled Greetings

Save all your birthday, Christmas and any other cards you get during the year and use them for postcards. Most of the cards do not have anything written on the right-hand inside flap. That leaves you a place to write your own personal note to someone. Postage is cheaper for a postcard and you didn't even buy the card to start with, but pass it on with a smile.

Free Trash Bags

Save those grocery store plastic bags, they make great free bathroom trash can liners. Empty softner salt bags and bulk towel & toilet paper bags also make good free trash bags.

Hopefully that helps you all in some way. Remember - stay away from impulse buys, those are always the most costly!

Take care!
