The AVEENO Men's Collection for a Wonderful, Close Shave

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Dad Central Consulting for AVEENO. I received product samples and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Hey there.  I have a love/hate relationship with shaving.  I love that I can snuggle close to my wife after a good, close shave, but I hate the nicks, cuts, and razor burn that sometimes comes with shaving.   I wouldn't say that I have sensitive skin, but if I go about a week without shaving, I can almost guarantee myself that my shaving experience won't be a good one.  Sometimes, it would get to a point where I would try to avoid shaving!  lol  But as most men would tell you, going that long without shaving will leave your face very prickly and snuggle time with the wife will go down to zero... Nobody wants thier face scratched by stubble!  I've tried to switch up my razor and that didn't help.  I even switched from shaving gel to foam to back again.  I just couldn't find a good enough product that will leave my skin feeling good and provided me with a close, comfortable shave.  That is, until I was introduced to the AVEENO Men's Collection.  Our good friends at AVEENO and Dad's Central provided me with a set of the AVEENO Men's Collection, which consisted of a face wash, shaving gel, and aftershave.  After more than a few shaving sessions, I'm ready to give my thoughts and insights on the AVEENO Men's Collection.  Let's get to it.

Popular Casino Scenes in Movies

We all wish to win big like in the movies!
Casino gaming is a popular pastime for people around the globe. This trend has been captured in film with many casino scenes appearing in movies. While today, online casinos are the top place to gamble, films instead focus on land based casinos. These casino scenes use many different casino games. However, table games seem to be the most popular to include in film. Blackjack is one casino table game that has been shown in many movies. The game has a certain amount of risk associated with it. Also, the illegal practice of card counting often appears in these movie scenes.

Flips HD Headphones by Flips Audio Review

Hey there.  I love music and movies.  Even though my favorite genre of music is hard rock, I listen to all kinds of tunes.  Same deal with movies.  I'm a huge fan of the Asian Horror flicks but that doesn't mean I won't sit and enjoy a good chick flick with the wife.  But just because I love it doesn't mean that the rest of the family does.  Because of it, I depend on my headphones to keep the tunes going or the movie playing when I'm watching something or listening to something the family is not all that interested in.  Recently, my good friends at Flips Audio provided me a set of Flips HD Headphones to try out.  Now, I have my fair share of headphones but let me tell you, these Flips HD headphones are freakin' awesome!  Let me tell you all about them.

Reebok Dance Gear Is back For Summer!

Women's UR Lead Mid Reebok Shoe
Hey there. Last year Reebok took a HUGE step into the dance category, supporting the active women who love to partake in fitness movements like Zumba to stay feeling and looking great. Mid-cut and low-cut footwear options were debuted, as was a full line of apparel made for movement. Reebok's dance footwear products like the UR Lead Mid have been a hit with dance enthusiasts, combining function and fashion in a way no other sportswear brand has achieved yet.

The Return of Mega Man

It hurts to see you this way, Mega Man.
Hey there.  See that above comic strip?  That comic strip hit home when I first saw it.  I damn near teared up.  For those of you that do not get the reference, that's Mario in the limo calling Masahiro Sukarai, the designer of the Super Smash Bros. franchise, to ask for a favor to help out an old friend.  It's one touching comic.  Subtle, yet powerful.  Also, it's very appropriate.  Mega Man was one of those NES titles that helped launch Nintendo into the video game world.  I've played all of the the Mega Man games on the early Nintendo platforms.  They were awesome, they were engaging, and most of all, they I felt a sense of pride when completing the games.  For whatever reason, Capcom and Mega Man parted ways with Nintendo and I strongly believe that was a huge mistake on Capcom's part.  Mega Man had games, such as Mega Man Legends, but they weren't the same.  Soon, before you knew it... the Blue Bomber was forgotten.  Left on the way side.  That is... until now.

Metallman's Reverie Update

Metallman here, with today's update
Hey there.  I just wanted to drop by and a leave a quick post about what's going on at Metallman's Reverie. I haven't had much time as of late since I've been working on other projects so I want to give you guys a run down as to what the game plan is.  I want to update you guys on the fundraising, the reviews, the giveaways, and the events planned.  So let's get to it.

First off, the Get a Life podcast is not dead.  lol  I've gotten some reader feedback asking when the next episode is going to air.  My Get a Life partner in crime is traveling at the moment so we decided that it we would take a few weeks off while he travels the north east part of the country.  We'll resume the podcast once he settles in and we're good to go.  I'm genuinely flattered that some of you guys are asking about it.  Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.  lol

Experiencing Thinning Hair or Hair Loss? Viviscal Man is Here to Help!

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Dad Central Consulting for Viviscal. I received product samples and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Viviscal Hair
Hey there.  I'm now in my early thirties.  I'm just now beginning to take better care of myself.  Actually, I started about a year or so ago.  I trained for a few obstacle courses, took my supplements, started to pay a little more attention to what I eat, generally, just got my self in better shape overall.  One thing that didn't occur to me to check on the health of my hair.  I know that many of us guys simply refuse to acknowledge that many of us will not have our long locks during our later years of our life.  It happens.  That's why I say you should enjoy it now while you know it's still there.  But what if you are already seeing signs of a receding hairline and thinning hair?  No worries, friends!  Viviscal Man is here to help!

Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D at the Los Angeles Zoo Nintendo Event

Oh yeah!  I'm there for the event!!!
Hey there.  Last weekend was Memorial Day weekend and it was a time of remembrance.  Many of us spent the day out with our families and gave thanks to those brave men and women of the United States Military that gave everything they had to protect the freedoms that this great nation believes in. Many of us celebrated by enjoying that freedom by enjoying it with our families.  I spent Memorial Day weekend with my family as well.  But I also spent it with Nintendo.  How so?  Well, this Memorial Day weekend, the great people at Nintendo offered my family and I a press pass to enjoy the LA Zoo AND meet Donkey Kong!  How awesome is that?!
