The reason why...

Hey y'all.. TGIF! As we go into the weekend, you'll probably run across more 'IceBucketChallenges', which by the way is a perfect time to do over the weekend w/ 100 degree plus temps. Anyway, a reminder that actually hit me much harder w/ thought when I watched Anthony's video. The #IceBucketChallenge is getting the awareness and raising money for ALS, but while you either watch or do a challenge, it goes much deeper than that. Anthony's video really got me thinking about it. If you only watch 1 more challenge, his is the one. It goes much deeper into what ALS is and what it does.

My video is in honor of him and everyone w/ and affected by ALS. Hugs to all who are helping the cause. You Rock!

Amazing Agility

It’s hard to tell how old this video is – looks like it was posted to Facebook a couple of weeks ago.

Check out this limber and loose athlete as he tears up the treadmill.

When it first starts, you expect it to be an America’s Funniest Videos selection ending up with a faceplant or his being rocketed off into a wall.

Not so. What’s truly amazing is that no one around him seems to notice what’s going on.

Seriously – I’d have trouble making those moves on a surface that wasn’t moving!

Taylor & The Biebs Bad for Biz

Cosmetic giant Elizabeth Arden announced some dismal financial news this week concerning its fiscal fourth quarter results. Net sales are down 30 percent, resulting in a staggering loss of close to $150 million.

And here’s part of the explanation, directly from their report to shareholders:
 
“While the Company had expected weaker sales comparisons due to the lower level of fragrance launch activity in fiscal 2014 versus fiscal 2013, the decline in sales of celebrity fragrances, particularly the Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift fragrances, was steeper than anticipated.”

In other words, The Biebs and Taylor stink – at least, for Elizabeth Arden.

And they’ve got to be pretty bad to be singled out, especially since the company also carries other celebrity fragrances from Britney Spears, Jennifer Aniston and Mariah Carey.

Check out this commercial for Justin’s fragrance, Girlfriend. I think I see the problem…

Wet Blankets on Ice Bucket Challenge

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has been phenomenally successful, both in raising awareness about the disease and raising funds for continued research to combat and defeat it.

But of course, there have to be party poopers.

First up, the Archdiocese of Cincinnati officially discouraged Catholics from participating, because some of the money donated to the ALS Association funds embryonic stem cell research, and that goes against the church’s teaching.

Then, the US State Department weighed in, banning ambassadors and high-profile foreign service workers from participating, as the charitable fundraising caused “concerns about preference and favoritism.”

Someone needs to throw buckets of ice water on the people imposing these bans.

That’s something I’d donate to see.

Jimmy Fallon's Barber College

Oscar winner Jared Leto is a trusting soul. During a visit to The Tonight Show on Wednesday, Jimmy Fallon offered Jared some style advice: take the beard down a notch.

The beard’s been growing since Jared’s Oscar win, so he’s a little attached to it. But, admitting that he’d “been asked to do some resurrections lately,” Jared said maybe it was time for a trim.

Luckily, Jimmy had the tools handy, and he was able to take some length and bulk off Jared’s face.

Nice job too – good to know if things don’t work out behind the desk, Jimmy could land a gig in NBC’s makeup department.

Does "Automata" Translate to "I, Robot"?

Antonio Banderas’ new movie, Automata, opens in October, but a teaser trailer was released this week. Here’s the synopsis from IMDb:

“Jacq Vaucan, an insurance agent of ROC robotics corporation, routinely investigates the case of manipulating a robot. What he discovers will have profound consequences for the future of humanity.”

Excuse me for asking, but isn’t that just about the same story told in Will Smith’s 2004 film, I, Robot? Here’s that movies synopsis from IMDb:

“In 2035 a technophobic cop investigates a crime that may have been perpetrated by a robot, which leads to a larger threat to humanity.”

I’m sorry, they’re different. Antonio’s an insurance agent. Will was a cop. Plus, Automata is set in 2044.

What was I thinking? Check out the trailers for both films – see what you think…

Ice Bucket Challenge in Three Parts!

Sarah Jessica Parker wrapped herself in a towel and stepped out onto a balcony in Houston, Texas yesterday to accept the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. She did it on Instagram, so it had to be in three parts.

The first part was accepting the challenge.

 

The second part featured her nominees for getting iced – Joan Rivers, Kim Kardashian and Billy Eichner.

 

And the third part was the dousing – but whoever tossed the water on her didn’t do such a good job. Check that out too.

It's NOT Fair...

I know that's a statement that usually has the answer, well life isn't fair. Which is BIGTIME the case for Anthony. With the #IceBucketChallenge HOT on social media... ALS making over $31.5 million so far. If you are tired of all the ice water videos, you need to watch this one, even if it's your last #IceBucketChallenge you watch. Anthony does it, but also explains and shows why. He wants those to know why they are doing it. I suggest having some tissues available. I wish I could hug him. ALS runs in his family. His grandmother had it, his mom has it and he was diagnosed w/ it 5 months ago at the age of 26.

There is some adult language in the video, so you're warned before watching it. Those words definitely fit how/when they are used during this video. Hopefully, this will never happen to you or someone you love. But think about what would you do if you were in the same situation as Anthony. I don't think you'll be bothered by the ice water vIdeos, once it's put into the in your face perspective of what ALS does to a a person who is dying from it. Anthony is such a strong soul. RIght now.. IT'S NOT FAIR FOR ANTHONY AT ALL!
