Missouri Mall Goes Viral

The marketing folks at the East Hills Mall in Saint Joseph, Missouri might have created what Reddit.com called the “Terrible Mall Commercial” and made it terrible on purpose.

The idea: have folks from the various shops selling back-to-school items sing about their wares to a bit of a hip-hop beat. With an old-style microphone in front of them.

“Singing” is a generous term. Some of the presentations are hideous. But, they’re so bad, they’re good.

And because of that, the video has gone viral. It was posted on August 17 – last Sunday – and as of last night, it had over 1.5 million hits on YouTube.

Check it out for yourself. Add to the hit count, and see what you think…

Marketing genius, or a lightning strike?

Oh, and by the way, “boots and pants and boots and pants!”

Ice Bucket Challenge #43

The 43rd president of the United States – some know him as George W. Bush, others simply as W – took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. First, he tried to write a check, as getting a bucket of ice water dumped on one’s head isn’t very “presidential.”

Thank goodness his wife was on hand. Great job, former First Lady! And lucky for her the Secret Service was taking a coffee break.

To W’s credit, he challenged his predecessor – Bill Clinton, aka #42 – to take the challenge. W noted that August 19 was Bill’s birthday, and “my gift to Bill is a bucket of cold water.”

Well played indeed.

JWoww Shaping Up?

It’s only been a month-and-a-half or so since Jersey Shore’s JWoww pushed daughter Meilani into the world.

And already, she’s back on the red carpet, this time for the premiere of her new horror comedy, Jersey Shore Massacre. Check out the interview she gave to US Weekly – printed uncensored, it would need an X rating.

She’s not happy with the way, um, “stuff” is jiggling in her post-partum body. And she says some of Meilani’s delivery will be seen on the upcoming season of Snooki & JWoww, and while no one needs to see her, um, “lady parts,” we just might. Oh yeah, she, um, let’s say “greatly” hated being pregnant.

Her body might be shaping up. Maybe she should be working on her pie hole. Um, sorry, “mouth.”

Mug Shot or Yearbook Photo?

Texas Governor Rick Perry – a possible presidential candidate in 2016 – was indicted by a grand jury in the Lone Star State last week on charges of abuse of power and coercion.

He showed up yesterday for his mug shot – looking like he was posing for a yearbook picture. He sure doesn’t look a bit worried, does he?

The charges allege that the governor vetoed funding of a county office that investigate public corruption because the woman who runs the office refused to resign after her DUI conviction.

You can check out the story in the video clip below.

Fifty Shades Guy Deserves Oscar?

Fifty Shades of Grey hasn’t even been released yet – it doesn’t come out until Valentine’s Day, 2015 – but already, the woman who wrote the screenplay says that Jamie Dornan, the actor playing Christian Grey, Is going to get an Oscar.

She’s talking about an Academy Award, not a weiner.

That’s according to an US Weekly article yesterday, quoting an interview Kelly Marcel gave a week or so ago to Reza Aslan in his Writer’s Room series.

Here’s her best quote: "Apparently Jamie is great at being soft and hard at the same time. Which is hard to do for an actor!"

I’m thinking she knew exactly what she was saying. How about you?

Meanwhile, check out the film’s trailer again, and see if you smell Oscar…

Beyonce Gets Divorce Advice from Gwyneth

And there’s a headline I never thought anyone would write, ever.

Not the Beyonce-getting-divorced part. That rumor’s been buzzing around for weeks, months even.

The other part: getting divorce advice from Gwyneth Paltrow.

You remember how she and Chris Martin consciously uncoupled a few months ago. And now, she’s become a consultant to celebrity splitters.

Word is that the BeyZee break up will happen in the fall, at the end of their On The Run tour dates. But according to sources, Queen Bey wants it to be as amicable as GwynChris’s.

Sorry. All this talk of uncoupling got me in the mood to couple Gwyneth and Chris just one more time…

Happy Birthday to the woman that birthed me!

'Bout to get sentimental really quick:

She is the greatest woman I know. She has supported me in everything I do. She is selfless, giving, and is the epitome of kind. Her heart is overflowing with love. She is my role model, my best friend, and I can only hope I turn out exactly like her. I love her more than words can express. Happy Birthday to my incredible mother.

"Shake It Off" Offends Rapper

It’s hard to imagine, but Taylor Swift’s new video, “Shake It Off,” has been officially deemed offensive.

Yes, the celebration by dance that says everyone can survive the naysayers is getting some naysay of its own by a giant of the music industry.

That’s right, folks, none other than rapper Earl Sweatshirt. Here’s what he had to say:
  He hasn’t watched it, and yet, he’s more than happy to weigh in on its offensive.

The man’s name is Earl Sweatshirt, folks.

You couldn’t make the name sound smart if you put Professor in front of it.

MORE INFO ON THE TIDEWATER DOCK DOGS SHELTER PROGRAM


The Shelter dog program is the first of it's kind in the DockDog community. In 2012 the Tidewater DockDogs Board of Directors wanted to make an impact in the community with their compassion and love of shelter dogs and their ability to become just as talented at DockDogs as any other dog.

Sponsoring this program is a joint effort from Shipps Corner Pet Spa, from donating the dock time to orientate the dogs to the dock, Tidewater DockDogs members for volunteering their time training, taking pictures for cards to hang on the kennels stating "I'm training to become a DockDog, come see me at Bay Days" and finally and the most important piece, a volunteer from the shelter to commit to being the handler for both the orientation day and competition day.

Tidewater DockDogs pays for all the wave fee's and because this is a club event we are able to set special time in a wave (also known as a heat) for these shelter dogs.

Three weeks before our event we invite the dogs out to the dock for practice and orientation, which is actually August 24, 2014 . These chosen dogs, have already displayed a "toy drive" and some sort love for water. In our first year we had 10 dogs at orientation day, 6 jumped and showed confidence to be on the dock in front of a large crowd and where chosen to be sponsored.

Last year, 19 dogs showed up and we had to narrow our choices to 10 dogs to be sponsored. The most amazing thing happened; all of these dogs were adopted within 30 days of competing and many within the day of the event. These are dogs that have spent often months or even years in the shelter, but giving them a job and something they feel excited about puts them in a whole different light that people see.

At the end of the event, it doesn't matter, what dog jumped the farthest, or the highest, or even swam the fastest. It's about getting them out of the shelters and into their forever families.
