Day in the Life of Driving to Los Angeles, the Death of Buffets, and the Covid Vaccine

Metallman
I'm tired, guys. I'm beginning to feel yesterday's jog. I'M SORE!!!

Hey there. There wasn't too much to talk about today. I spent about 3 and half hours of the day driving to and from work and didn't get much down time. But that doesn't mean I didn't have any thoughts and conversations. Let's get into it.

It's Rum Time! Celebrate Life's Good Times with Puerto Rican Rum

This post brought to you by Rums of Puerto Rico . The content and opinions expressed below are that of Metallman's Reverie.
Hey there.  Did you know that Puerto Rico is known as the Rum Capital of the World?  I sure didn't.  I also didn't know that Puerto Rico has been distilling the spirit for over 450 years.  I wouldn't doubt it if the rum was there during some of history's most celebrated moments.  Maybe Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla toasted after bringing electricity to the homes of millions.  Maybe it happened, maybe it didn't.  But what if it did?  Well, now we'll know! Well... sort of. History.com and Rums of Puerto Rico have teamed up to bring you an original series: RUM TIME!  Rum Time imagines behind the scenes celebrations and after parties of historical achievements.  It will provide insight about the rums of Puerto Rico while giving interesting facts of the achievement.  Let's take the invention of the light bulb for instance.  Check out the first episode of Rum Time to get a better understanding of series.

Weird Al's Tacky Music Video

Weird Al Yankovic Mandatory Fun
Hey there.  I've been a fan of Weird Al Yankovic since forever.  Aside from creating original music, Weird Al's claim to fame has been his own unique style of parody.  After 30 years of doing his thing, he finally hit the top of the charts with his latest album, Mandatory Fun.  That's right, friends.  Weird Al has the #1 album on the Billboard Top 200!  CONGRATS, AL!  And to celebrate, this week's Funny Friday will feature one of the many videos released to promote Mandatory Fun.  Here is Tacky, a parody of the hit song Happy.  ENJOY!  Later!

Still Using Incandescent Light bulbs? Let Sylvania Light the Way!

Sylvania Compact Fluorescent Bulbs
Light weight, lasts longer, AND saves you money on energy!
Hey there.  Are you still using incandescent light bulbs?  I used to.  I changed out my light bulbs not too long ago with the more energy efficient compact fluorescent bulbs.  But what I didn't know is that there are more choices other than that.  Did you know that there are LED bulbs as well?  I sure didn't.  And I'm not the only one.  The below video is a short video about a set of parents that are about to get schooled by their daughter.  Check it out.

Chucky Terrorizes at a Bus Stop

Hey there.  When I was a kid, I was terrified of Chucky.  Maybe because it was one of the first times I saw a small doll actually move on it's own on the big screen killing people.  Keep in mind that Chucky first appeared in film back in 1988.  Fast forward 25 years later and Chucky is still making films.  His latest being Curse of Chucky, released sometime in 2013.  You know, the Child's Play franchise when from scary, to humor, to eye rolling dumb, but with Curse of Chucky, it looks like it's coming full circle and going for that "scary' vibe again.  How do I figure?  Just check out this freakin' awesome video of Chucky doing his thing to unsuspecting people at a bus stop!

Bring Awareness to Hepatitis with the Three Unwise Monkeys Campaign

Hey there. I have a cousin does awesome work at a local clinic.  One of her main functions is to drive awareness to dangers of unprotected sex.  She's constantly reminding the community of free HIV testing and she has participated in seminars in schools to make our youth aware of the disease.  Now, HIV and AIDS may be the sickness that gets headlines, but did you know that hepatitis is just as lethal?  A study by The Global Burden Disease showed that viral hepatitis was responsible for just as many deaths as HIV and AIDS.  That's a pretty big eye opener, no?  So I'm going to follow in my little cousin's footsteps and help bring awareness to the community.  Here are some details about hepatitis:

Nintendohemian Rhapsody

Hey there. I love me a good NES title. Why? Well because they are fun and challenging!  There was no internet to tell us what to do, there was rarely a strategy guide in sight, and if you died after using all of your continues, that was it.  Game over.  Start from the beginning... AGAIN!  Nevertheless, I loved them.  The video below expresses my sentiment EXACTLY!  Take a listen.  If you are a NES fan, you're going to love this!  Later!

God of War Saga Winner - Persist

Hey there.  I wanted to give a shout out to the winner of the God of War Saga giveaway.  The winner, Persist, made a special request upon winning the giveaway.  He entered to win, but couldn't wait and ended up buying the game before he was chosen as the winner.  In lieu of the game, we decided on a $30 PSN network card.  I want to keep my winners happy, you know.  lol  You can't really provide a picture of PSN codes so I told him that I would give him a winners post regardless!

Persist can be followed on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and many other social media outlets.  He's created quite a few music videos that are pretty awesome.  If you love the hip hop scene, you should check out his music at PersistMuzik.  Congrats, Persist!  Hope you stick around and enjoy the site!  Later!

Potty Training with Pull Ups

Hey there.  I am officially ready to declare my 2 year old boy potty trained!  YES!  No more dirty diapers but that has been replaced by many, and I do mean many, trips to my son's potty.  For those of you that haven't had the experience of potty training a child, let me tell you... it's not an easy task.  It can be very frustrating, messy, and may sometimes feel down right impossible.  But don't worry!  From my experience, it's all about the right technique to help your child learn to use the potty.  But before you embark on this incredible task with your child, you need to make sure you are well prepared.  A kid's potty, dependable Pull Ups, plenty of baby wipes, and a lot of patience will go a long way to making sure your child becomes successful!

The Oral-B ProfessionalCare SmartSeries 5000 with SmartGuide Video

Oral-B at it's finest!
Hey there.  A few weeks ago, I received a Oral-B ProfessionalCare SmartSeries 5000 with SmartGuide to use and review.  I must say that I was extremely excited to get to it.  A super powered toothbrush with several brushing settings and a smart guide to help you brush?  Yes please!  Now that I've had some experience with it, I want to let you guys know how it went.

First off, I am now brushing my teeth for MORE than the dentist recommended 2 minutes.  The smartguide and the 30 second timer for each section of your mouth is 100% responsible for that.  Without the timer, I know that I was rushing my brushing.  I also noticed that I may have been brushing a little too hard as well.  The power toothbrush has a red light (and sad face on the smartguide) to show you that you have brush too hard.   Have the smartguide as a guide, I know that I'll brush for the full 2 minutes and then do a little extra brushing because of the new teeth brushing ritual that I have incorporated into my oral hygiene.  I brush for 2 minutes using the whitening setting and then an extra minute using the deep clean setting.  I actually spend more time brushing my teeth than brushing my hair!  lol

The Color Run 2012

Hey there.  Guess who just signed up to do The Color Run in the city of Irvine this April?!?!  That's right!  This guy!  I told myself that I wanted to do some more running this year.  I started the year well by doing a good 5 mile run about 3 times a week but have kind of ventured off from that pass.  It's OK, though.  I'm still staying in shape and am squeezing a workout here and there.  But when I made that commitment to be in more shape this year, I told myself that running a 5K would be a goal.  That goal is now going to happen on April 22nd!!

If you guys haven't head of The Color Run, it's pretty damn cool.  It's not so much about speed but more about enjoying yourself.  You start off with a white colored shirt and at the 1K mark, you'll be splattered with paint.  By the time you reach the end, you'll be covered in colors!  Check out the video below of how much fun it can be!

The Walking Dead Video Game

Hey there. Now that the season is over, fans are looking for a zombie fix.  The Walking Dead has been insanely popular and it was only a matter of time before a video game based on the show/comic would be made.  My friends... it is happening.  TellTale games has taken the challenge and well... check out the trailer for The Walking Dead video game!


Whoa!  I love that the kept the look and feel of The Walking Dead.  It seems almost as if it plays out like a comic book!  Again, this is just the trailer so you can't take too much from it but it sure does look promising.  I really hope that they take their time and do this right or there will be a lot of upset fans.  What do you think of the trailer?

Chris Cornell's Tribute to Whitney Houston

Hey there.  I expect the tributes to come from all genres of music.  Whitney had such a great voice that it touched and influenced many artists.  Greatness respects greatness and it's only fitting that some of the biggest names in the music business are paying their respects to Whitney Houston.  But just how influential was she?  Just check out this great rendition of I Will Always Love You by Chris Cornell.  One of the pioneers of grunge music reaches across his element and delivers one beautifully crafted tribute.  The guy that screamed Outshine, the man that introduced us to Spoonman, the soul that produced this voice.  So raw, so emotional, so beautiful.  Check it out.

Does Tebowing Work?

I used this one because it has the Raider logo in the back
Hey there. We've all heard it.  We've all seen it.  If you have a pulse and know anything about sports, then you're now familiar with who Tim Tebow is and the craze that he has started.  Yup.  I am talking about Tebowing.  It's a very simple gesture.  You get down on one knee, bow your head, and place your forearm across your forehead as if you are in player.  Of course, Tebow actually is in prayer when he does it since he's made it clear to everyone what a devout Christian he is, but every one has been Tebowing in the same fashion as planking.

The 8 Bit Super Mario Opera

It's a-me, MARIO! Oh man, I saw this posted in my Facebook feed yesterday and even though I was warned of this opera's catchyness, I listened anyways. And now... I can't stop singing, "It's a-me, MARIO!". lol I give you the same warning. If you haven't heard it yet, you will be singing it to yourself when you least expect too. lol Later!

Dance Central for the Xbox Kincet

Hey there.  When the Xbox Kinect first came out, I was a little skeptical of it's use and it's longevity.  I figured that petting animals and pretending to kick a ball would not have the lasting appeal that many hardcore gamers are looking for.  Nevertheless, when I offered a Kinect at a bargain price, I picked it up.  I figured that I would use it as a means of exercise.  I even picked up the Zumba dance game for it in hopes to increase my dancing stats. lol
