Enjoy the Silence

Alright. By now, all of you know how much I love cover songs. I was watching the trailer for the new Ghost in a Shell a few nights ago and heard this jewel (originally done by Depeche Mode) playing through the trailer. I had to look it up. Wow, fantastic.

What would you do with an extra $1,000?

It is amazing to me that people still pay so much money on television. In his article on cable cutting, Trent Hamm tells us that, “the average American cable bill is $100 per month.” That’s the average, mind you: many people pay more than that, and some pay substantially more. Such a bill adds up to well over a thousand dollars a year.” Continue reading “What would you do with an extra $1,000?”

You can’t beat free

If you are out there in the blogging world, you have come to realize two things by now. Thing #1: Your blog will not get much attention if you do not include fascinating images within the content (People struggle with just words). Thing #2: It’s hard to find fascinating images that you do not have to pay for. That is about to change…. Continue reading “You can’t beat free”
