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.

Why are animated FILMS never nominated for Best Director or acting awards?

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.

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.

So try not to be surprised if people start to imitate the Human Man’s closest relative, THE MONKEY, COVERS THEMSELVES WITH URINE TO ATTRACT A MATE. Continue reading WANT TO ATTRACT THE LADIES LIKE THE SWINGING MONKEYS DO? JUST PEE ON YOURSELF. SERIOUSLY.

The Most Dangerous Jobs in the World – that shouldn’t be

Dangerous Jobs
Dangerous Jobs

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.

But there are some JOBS THAT AREN’T THAT TOUGH, BUT STILL HAVE HIGH INJURY RATES.  Here’s a list of those jobs that may sound easy and lucrative, but in reality may end up putting you in the hospital or worse  Take being a farmer, for instance – their rate of injury is 38.5.  And some would say that working on a ranch is the easy way out.

Web Watch is a huge Sid & Marty Krofft fan.

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).

We highly recommend the PUFNSTUF & OTHER STUFF book for a history of what the Kroffts have done, although more intellectual minds may want to take a gander at Sid and Marty Krofft: A Critical Study of Saturday Morning Childrens Television.

The “Don’t Eat That, Don’t Eat That” Diet. Lose weight by not eating gross stuff


By web gangsta | Published:

History's Grossest Moments
History’s Grossest Moments

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.

Yeah.  Low food scores are pretty gross.  Good sign of cross-contamination or other major food handling issues that can get you pretty sick.  Half the battle of sticking to a diet is just deciding not to eat at those kinds of places. Continue reading THE “DON’T EAT THAT, DON’T EAT THAT” DIET. LOSE WEIGHT BY NOT EATING GROSS STUFF

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.

But that’s not necessarily was discovered in RECENT STUDIES OF CAR LOVERS.  No, it looks like the folks at Jiffy Lube and InsuranceQuotes.com had other things on their mind with their line of questioning.  Let’s take a look… Continue reading WHEN YOU SAY YOU “LOVE YOUR CAR”, YOU MEAN YOU REALLY LOVE YOUR CAR
