Metallman is Looking Forward to 2012 and Giving Thanks

Hey there.  With the year almost over, I wanted to touch base on where I am headed and where this site is headed.  I've had my share of personal posts, which I wanted to do more of, and I've lagged it in the poetry department (sorry poetry enthusiasts!).  I've added my brother as a writer, which I hope he continues to produce content and I've passed through the gates of giveaway land.  That's really where I have made some decent traffic this year.  My giveaway posts have landed me thousands of pageviews and I'm grateful for it.  That's why I've decided to keep that going for as long as the site is up.  I've also added a game each month so instead of just one game being given away, I'm giving away 2 games.  I'm hoping that the increased pageviews will bring attention to other posts.  I lack comments on this site and I blame myself for it.  Maybe I need to change from using Disqus and try a different comment system.  I don't know just yet, but considering the size of Metallman's Reverie, I need to have a decent layout and a great comment system working.  All of that is looking to be changed in the coming year.

The Office

Thanks to Danny Mays

The Office has been running for many years now. At first I was not a fan of the show because I didn’t really understand the dry humor and the way that the actors look directly at the camera to make a point was a little unnerving to watch at first. Now I am hooked on the show. I set a series recording on my new DVR so I can get and watch every episode without commercials! Yay! No commercials ever again! So anyway back to The Office. My favorite people on the show are Jim and Pam. They had a little office romance going for quite a while before they actually decided to start dating. Back in those days Pam was dating some guy from the warehouse but Jim would still flirt with her all day long to try to win her over. Finally they decided to get married so they went up to Niagra falls to have a small family wedding but of course the whole crew from their office had to show up to crash the party.

Thoughts on... The Los Angeles Lakers Starting the 2011-2012 Season 0-2

Lakers star Kobe Bryant
Hey there.  The NBA is back!  After much anticipation, the season finally took off on Christmas Day.  Many of the top teams of the NBA were showcased to a national audience and while much rust was expected due to the lack of a preseason workout, there were still quite a few surprises during the first few games for many teams.  Even though I love to watch the NBA, I'm more concerned about the Lakers more than any other team.  Christmas Day saw the Lakers lose a close game to the Chicago Bulls and last night, they couldn't stop the Sacramento Kings from shooting 3 pointers.  Here are my thoughts on the Los Angeles Lakers starting the season 0-2.

Cyanide and happiness: Dodged a Bullet

Whew...  That was close!

Thoughts on... High School of the Dead

Hey there.  Recently, it's been tough getting my horror film fix on.  Young eyes are everywhere recently and I don't want to expose the kids to anything that they shouldn't see.  I mentioned to kids the other day how I used to watch "scary movies" with my dad when I was a young boy.  Great films such as The Fly and cult classics such as Phantasm.  lol  I remember being 6 or 7 and lying in bed late at night watching those kind of films with him.  I understand the sentiment behind his actions.  He very well just wanted to share a hobby of his with his young son.  However, being a father myself, I'm not so sure that was the best idea you had, Dad!  lol  Nevertheless, my love for horror started right then and there and though I would love for my kids to catch that bug, I wouldn't make them sit through some of the stuff I see.  Especially something like High School of the Dead.  Here are my thoughts on...  High School of the Dead.

The State of the NBA

Chris Paul to the Lakers?!  I need to consult with my
Magic 8 ball first!
The NBA is back and it’s in full EFFECT!! Hours after the lockout was lifted, we had our first big move, New Orleans point guard to the Los Angeles Lakers in a 3 team trade, which included the Houston Rockets. Right off the bat, the NBA was top news because something major was about to happen merely an hour after the lockout was lifted. No more than 24 hours later??? A bigger bombshell struck! The trade was vetoed. Wait! WHAT!? VETOED!! What do you mean vetoed? What does that mean?

Qualcomm Stadium to be Temporarily Renamed to Snapdragon Stadium

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Snapdragon by Qualcomm. All opinions are 100% mine.
Hey there.  If you are a football fan, then you are familiar with the names of some of the stadiums across the United States.  There's Lucas Oil Stadium, The Meadowlands, Arrowhead Stadium and for you San Diego natives, there's Qualcomm Stadium.  The naming rights for a stadium usually lies with the highest bidder and in this case, the local San Diego based company, Qualcomm, has been awarded that right.  But what do you do after the novelty wears off?   Qualcomm is already on the map but you need to bring more exposure to the products that you produce.  Qualcomm is taking the naming rights a step further and are proud to announce that as of last Sunday, Dec. 18th, they will temporarily change the name of the stadium from Qualcomm to Snapdragon Stadium!

My Christmas Story - Banjo Kazooie, N64, and a Snitch

With Christmas being literally around corner, we all have our christmas stories. Whether it'd be getting that special gift, giving that special gift or just remembering the times you've had with your family and friends. I got my own Christmas stories to tell, maybe too many, to be honest. There's one I remember the most, its the one that makes me laugh and it reminds me of how much the memories of family means to me.

Getting Ready for a Young Lady

Hey there. Last weekend, I was drawing with the kids. Well, actually with the girls. They drew something for me and I would do my interpretation of that drawing. I figured that it was a little something that they may remember many years from now. What I didn't realize at the time is that those years are flying by a little too quickly for my liking. My oldest daughter is 10.  That is only a few years away from her quinceñera.  For those of you not in the know, it's a party thrown on the 15th birthday of a young lady to usher her in to womanhood.  Now... 15 does not make you a woman... but I guess the significance is that she is no longer a "child".  It's the moment that fathers everywhere dread.  It's the moment that you come to face the fact that daddy's little girl is growing up.

So why the revelation?  It's this drawing.  She drew herself and I did my version of her.  My drawing gave me a glimpse of what she could become in a few short years.  Well, I knew that it was coming.  I've even joked with her and said that I will embarrass her as much as possible before she won't find me "funny" anymore.  I've already declared that I will do the robot during our quinceñera dance.  lmao!  And I already see some of that luster come off.  My jokes aren't as funny, my mannerisms aren't as witty, and, to her, they're coming off as embarrassing or stupid.  It's ok, though.  That's not going to stop me from trying.  *sigh*  

Where's that parent instruction manual?  lol  Later!

Top 5 Christmas Songs

1. All I Want for Christmas - Mariah Carey
Mariah has one the best and most recognizable Christmas songs in the last 20 years.

2. Last Christmas- Wham!
George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley make a classsic song that is remade by literally everyone.

3. Baby, Its Cold Outside-EVERYONE
This classic tune is fun, has been sang by pretty much anyone with a little eggnog and a passion for parody.

4. Let It Snow Although I live in Los Angeles, I cant help but to know the lyrics to this song considering its played at every department store while I'm shopping for mom's Xmas gift.

5. Feliz Navidad
Who did not sing this song during their Christmas holiday play???

I'm sure we've all heard these songs while we're driving to our destinations at some point in the past four weeks. You will fail trying to avoid these songs within the week that brings upon us Christmas day. So, enjoy them, listen, sing a long, buy a Christmas album and and sing a long with your friends and family while sippin on some eggnog, for this is the one time of the year that it is ok to this and its accepted. No one is going around singing the "Monster Mash" right? right?

Motivational Monday - Growing Up Poor

My brother and I did the same thing!  But without boxes and paint!  lol

Introducing My Brother, Wide E Wake

Hey there.  Recently my brother came to me and asked about the blogging business.  I told him how long it took me to start up a fan base and all the long hours that it took to manage the site.  He told me that he may start one himself one day.  Pretty awesome, if you ask me.  I offered him a spot on this site as a way to get his feet wet.  You know, to get a feel for the blogging game and he was all for it.  Since that discussion (which was probably 2 or 3 days ago) he has already written up 3 posts.  I'll have his first post published shortly.  So let's give a warm welcome to my bro, Wide E Wake!  Make sure to follow his new Twitter feed!

The goal is for him to not only feel welcomed, but also start up his own fan base so that one day he can branch out and do his thing, if he so chooses to.  But in the mean time, we'll see what kind of changes we'll make to the site to help him along the way.  I'm already in the process of getting the site a much needed makeover and a new logo.  Hopefully, those changes will take place soon.  Later!

Making Hickory Farms a Family Tradition

Hey there.  No matter what goes down in your daily life, at the end of the day, you come home to your family.  Always inviting, always waiting there for.  It's the best time of day, actually.  Well, at least for me it is.  After working hard all day, it's great to be able to spend some time with the wife and kids and dinner time is a great way to open up with each other and share the day's experiences.  It's a welcome change from the stresses of being a working parent.  And nothing makes the conversation better than an awesome meal from the wife.  But not just any meal, but a meal prepared using some Hickory Farms products.

The True Definition of Courage

Getting Screwed by Bank of America... Again

Hey there.  I have strong disdain towards Bank of America.  Throughout my years, they have managed to screw me over with my checking account, a credit card, and now my home.  Or should I say, previous home.  That's right, the bastards took my house.  It's a long story, one that starts about 2 years ago, but the stress didn't amp up until March of this year.  So here's the story...

Thoughts On... The Human Centipede 2

Hey there.  What an insane movie.  When I heard that the sequel to The Human Centipede was to be made, I knew that I had to watch it.  Weird, quirky, disgusting, intense horror flicks are what I like to watch and The Human Centipede did not disappoint in that respect.  The first film told the story of a doctor that came up with a way to create a "human centipede".  He created his specimen by attaching 3 people.  The film used it's tagline, 100% medically accurate, to intrigue viewers.  Is it really possible to attach people that way and have them survive?  The film ended in some what of a cliffhanger and I needed to watch part 2 to see what would happen next.  Especially since word on the web said that the second part would include a 12 human centipede!  So here are my thoughts on, The Human Centipede 2!  *SPOILERS AHEAD*

The 2011 NBA Lockout is Over

Hey there.  I love basketball and the fact that there's no NBA on my TV in November just seems wrong.  The 2011 NBA lockout just seemed to be a ridiculous at times.  The NBA was coming off one of the most exciting Finals in recent memory and the NBA seemed poised to build on that momentum.  Instead, the NBA allowed to league to lose steam, allowed the players to seek employment elsewhere, and allowed the fans to be irritated beyond belief that a collective bargaining agreement could not be made.  However, today, the NBA and it's players have tentatively agreed on a new deal to get basketball back on TV starting on Christmas Day!

Are You Ready For Some UNO Roboto?

Hey there.  Who doesn't like to play the classic game of UNO?  I used to play this with my family and friends all the time.  When ever a deck of UNO cards were sitting around in someone's house, we'd all gather to play. Even today, it's one of the few games from my childhood that I enjoy playing.  It has it all, deception, unpredictability, strategy, and plenty of laughs!  So when the opportunity came knocking to try out UNO Roboto, I just had to jump on it.

My Blind Eyes Define My Look

Glasses?  What glasses?
Hey there.  I wear glasses.  As far I can remember, I've worn glasses.  If I had to put a time frame as to when I got them, I would probably say I got them somewhere around kindergarten so I've worn specs for most of my life.  And you know what, I don't mind a single bit.  I love my glasses.  I like how I look.  Sure, I got the whole "four eyes" thing as a child, but let's be real here, kids can be cruel and there's always going to be that one jerk that will pic on the kid with glasses.  The thing is to encourage a positive attitude and to create an identity.  At an early age, I learned that my eyesight was not the best that I would wear eyeglasses for life.  And you know what, I'm completely fine with it.

Already Planning my Turkey Leftovers Dishes

Guest post written by Aliza Simpson

I like to think ahead, especially when it comes to what I'm going to eat. It's something that's really important to me. I mean, you need to eat, but you also should enjoy something that you have to do anyway. So when it comes to big occasions, I like to put a whole lot of thought into what I'm going to cook and also eat.

I'm hosting a friends get together for Thanksgiving and I've already thought of all the leftovers and the meals that I'm going to eat from them. I was online looking up some ideas for that a few days ago when I ran across the site and after I looked through it a little bit I decided to change over my apartment's internet service to one of the packages on there.

I'm probably going to have a whole bunch of turkey leftovers after my friends come over and everything, and I'm going to make all kinds of yummy turkey wraps and paninis with the leftover stuff. Just hopefully my friends wonÕt want to take too many leftovers home!

Get Better Connected with the T-Mobile Exclusive LG Double Play Phone

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of LG DoublePlay™ for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Hey there.  I'm tired of my phone.  I've been sporting a BB 8250 for quite some time and now I believe it's time for a change.  For one, it's not touch screen, it seems that it doesn't have the power to handle some heavy usage.  Also, the track pad has lost it's touch.  There are times when I simply can't even scroll and that is one frustrating experience.  It's time to move on.  It's time to upgrade and I have my sights on the LG DoublePlay™.

Petition to Remove The Kardashians From Your TV

I don't think this pose is kid friendly, Kim.
Hey there.  I have quite a bit of disdain for the Kardashian clan.  I just feel as if they are known to the world because of a sex tape.  Kim started the movement, then her family jumped on her coattails and now I see them as a fake family on TV that claims to be real.  I simply don't buy it and I don't like it.  I don't buy into the Kardashian brand but the sad part is that many people do.  Actually... millions do.  Whether it be one of the many Kim K products or Kloe's fragrance with Lamar Odom (Oh Lamar... what have you done...), I just don't see how the mainstream media accepts these people.  And it's happening more and more.  With "hit" shows like The Jersey Shore, 16 and pregnant, and countless other "reality" shows, no name people are making it big because they are portrayed as idiots or because we are waiting for a train wreck to happen.  Don't get me wrong, I like a good wreck here and there, but what happened to the days where talented people filled our air ways?  The days of acting and game shows?  I don't want to see the day to day lives of "celebrities".  If anything, make it a TV special, not a TV series.  I believe that it's time to take our TV back!  And it seems that I'm not the only one that believes this since there is now a petition out there that you can sign to help remove the Kardashian clan from our television sets!

Thoughts On... PETA Attacking Super Mario

Hey there.  PETA, I get you.  Our animal friends need someone to look out for them.  Someone to make sure they're still around for our kids to enjoy.  PETA, I get it.  Some people skin and kill animals for fun and you know what, I'm not really cool with that either.  But let me tell you something, PETA, when you have beef with Mario, as in THE Super MARIO, then you have gone off the deep end.

How Long Should You Play a Video Game Before Moving on to the Next One?

I'll play this until the NEW one comes out NEXT WEEK!!!
Hey there.  Unless you are living under a rock, you should be well aware of the "army guys shooting stuff" games that recently were released.  More specifically, Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.  Now, I love me a good session of Black Ops.  Hell, I even started playing it more with my oldest son (which by the way is WAAAAAAAAAY better at it than I am).  Last night, when I got home, he started to tell me about his day and said how many of his friends waited for the midnight release of the game so that they can be one of the first to play it.  I knew quite a few people that also attended those midnight releases (I'm looking at you, Devious!  lol) and I thought that it would have been awesome to attend one myself.  BUT... I simply cannot commit to more than a game or two at a time.

Thoughts on... The Duggars Expecting Their 20th Child

Hey there.  Many years ago, the world was introduced to the Duggar family.  TLC first brought them to the limelight with their spectacular show, 16 and Counting (I think...).  Since then, the Duggars have welcomed a few more additions to their family and have even welcomed a grandchild.  All showcased on TLC for the world to hear.  Today, the Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar appeared on NBC's Today Show and announced that they are now expecting their 20th child.  WOW!!!

The Official Selection of the 2011 Screamfest - The Night Caller

Hey there.  I know that Halloween is over and people everywhere are recovering from their scare induced comas but when a great short film comes my way, I need to give it the props it deserves!  Regardless of the time of year!  In 7 tense minutes, Peter Prodgursky and Donna Thorland did an awesome job directing this short story by Gary Raisor.  Using great lighting, awesome colors, and tense moments, the story definitely comes to life and captivates you.  Now... I've said too much.  Let me not spoil it for you.  There's only so much you can say of a short film before you start giving away too many details but just so that you can get a feel for the film, here's the official synopsis:

A father's promise to read his daughter a bedtime story begins a night time descent into terror and madness for his young wife.

If you have 7 minutes to spare, check it out and let me know what you think!  Later!
