So now that you’ve written your songs, it’s time to get the band together.
And the hardest part about getting the band together is not picking out who the drummer or lead singer are going to be, but what the band name will be.
Because a good band name can make or break you. We all know some bands that can’t get any promotion because they decided to be “edgy” and pick a name that has foul connotations. Think about it – if you can’t tell your band name to your grandmother (like LMFAO did, whose grandmother approved of their choice), then maybe you’re not thinking down the line enough about the important stuff – like getting paid.

It’s a completely legitimate question, especially as Pixar continues its stellar run of high-quality animated entertainment.
There’s a reason why TOY STORY 3 is nominated for Best Picture this year. There’s a reason why UP was nominated for Best Picture last year. There’s a reason why WALL-E‘s lack of a Best Picture nomination forced the Academy to increase the number of eligible Best Picture nominees from five to 10, thus ensuring that there would be 5 more chances for an animated film to lose any chance of ever winning a Best Picture award of its own outside of the animation categories. Continue reading WHY ARE ANIMATED FILMS NEVER NOMINATED FOR BEST DIRECTOR OR ACTING AWARDS?→
If you have difficulty attracting the ladies, maybe it’s time to take a clue from the animal world and do what they do.
Think about it – there is some truth to how people imitate the strutting, boasting, show of force or elaborate mating rituals that go on in the jungles and forests across the country by animals of all shapes and sizes.
Last year, Web Watch told you about GEMCRAFT CHAPTER 0, one of the better, more involved games in the Tower Defense genre of computer games.
The folks at GAME IN A BOTTLE have been pretty busy recently, and have released a sequel entitled GEMCRAFT LABYRINTH. And as sequels go, it’s a fine addition to the line. If you’re a tower defense fan, you’ll definitely want to check this one out.
Some people think that their jobs are kind of tough.
You’ve got your standard fireman, policeman, oil rigger, human cannonball, Alaskan fisherman. Yup, those are some very tough jobs, all with high incidents of injury and death. For every 100,000 full-time workers, fatal injuries for firefighters is about 4.4, when police rate at 13.1.
From Sigmund and the Sea Monsters to H.R. Pufnstuf, to even their later efforts like D.C. Follies, Sid & Marty Krofft were always ahead of the curve in coming up with things that will appeal to kids (yet still have a little subversiveness to help draw in the parents).
Growing up, almost every boy has a dream to someday work for Playboy Magazine (link NSFW).
Because how fun would it be to surround yourself with The Most Beautiful Women of the World, all day, every day?
And to party at the Playboy Mansion? That’s a dream that everyone has, no matter how corporate some of the more recent parties are rumored to have become (the Mansion is owned by the Company, after all, so they do have some entertainment bills that need to be paid somehow).
So you want to lose weight, but don’t have a good weight-loss diet program?
You can always do what Web Watch does — just pay attention to the quality of the food service at the restaurants you eat at. Because let’s face it – people are generally gross, and don’t really care.
Ask any friend of yours who has worked in food service. They’ve all done — or seen — some really nasty stuff go on behind-the-scenes in the restaurant kitchen.
For example, next time you go into your favorite local establishment, take a look at the posted health score on the wall. And keep in mind that no matter how high that number is, the restaurant manager had to negotiate that upwards from where it was originally. So while you may see an 89 out of 100 point score on the wall, you have to ask what was so awful that the health inspector couldn’t bring it up to a 90.
Web Watch knows many people who have dated, and even married, a co-worker.
Some say that the workplace is the ultimate place to find love, and the “work spouse” is not often the joke that it once was. This is especially true in today’s world, where the workplace can eat up 1/3 to 1/2 of your day, meaning that you may be spending more time at work than you are at home, asleep.
If someone asks you “how much do you love your car”, you shouldn’t be asking yourself whether the person is inquiring about whether you physically make love to your car, or just appreciate what your car brings to your life and well-being.
No, we don’t need to know about your lovelife with your car, no matter how much you like it’s fast moves and sleek lines.
