WeWinnin PSA


It is no secret that country is struggling right now. Auto Industry "fallin to pieces", government funded, bank bailouts, ridiculous levels of unemployment; and the environment not in the best condition either.

What can we do????

We, as Concerned American Citizens,
can contact our state senators and urge them to vote for clean energy legislation. Obiviously, clean energy legislation will help improve the environment. It will also create industry, and new industry equals new jobs. Clean energy jobs are growing at a rate 2.5 times faster than the general economy.

Just a little food for thought. (its also entertaining)


Will Smith Officially back for Men In Black 3

Columbia Pictures has set a May 25, 2012 release date for a third 'Men in Black' film with superstar Will Smith confirmed to reprise his role as James Darrell Edwards III/Agent J.

Nikke Finke's Deadline reports that the film will be shot in 3D and that director Barry Sonnenfeld is back on board. Deals are now being negotiated with Tommy Lee Jones andJosh Brolin.

Also returning on the creative side are producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald, and Steven Spielberg will be executive producer.

The site states that the film will use a time travel element that moves the action from contemporary back to 1969. Brolin will play the younger version of Jones's Agent Kay character. The franchise, based on the comic book by Lowell Cunningham, grossed $589 million worldwide for the original 1997 film, and the 2002 sequel did $442 million in global ticket sales.

Smith's last film, 2008's 'Seven Pounds,' grossed a dismal '$69 million dollars but made $168 million globally.

Currently, he's been producing films and TV projects, such as his son Jaden Smith's upcoming remake of 'The Karate Kid,' and his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith's TV show, 'HawthoRNe.' - BV

I bet it sells more than Avatar.

The World's 10 Most Powerful Luxury Brands

According to Milward Brown

1. Louis Vuitton
Last year’s ranking: 1 Overall Brand Value: up 2% to $19.78 billion
Louis Vuitton’s focus on its heritage as a travel brand helped it to retain its core customer–the jet setter.
2. Hermès
Last year’s ranking: 2 Overall Brand Value: up 8% to $8.46 billion
The majority of Hermès is still family-owned (71% is family; 29% is public shares), which means it has the luxury of taking risks when it wants to and staying the course when it doesn’t. For instance, the company–which also owns shoemaker John Lobb–chose at the end of 2009 to buy Shang Xia, a new brand based in China tailored to the Chinese consumer. What’s more, not only does the company charge far more for its handmade leather bags than its competitors, it also keeps tight control on who can sell those bags. (That’s why you shouldn’t find Hermès leather goods anywhere but its own retail boutiques.) This year, the firm also chose to focus on its heritage, sponsoring a horse competition in Paris.
3. Gucci
Last year’s ranking: 3 Overall Brand Value: up 2% to $7.59 billion
Gucci’s partnership with Christie’s–in which the firm appraises vintage Gucci luggage and handbags–gave it a one-up on its competitors. Now, the 
PPR-owned luxury goods maker has a tighter control its secondary market.
4. Chanel
Last year’s ranking: 4 Overall Brand Value: down 11% to $5.55 billion
Chanel’s dip in brand value is a sign of the times, according to Millward Brown Optimor director Pierre Dupreelle. During the recession, consumers turned to more practical products. While Chanel still attracted many with its classic quilted bags, cosmetics and fragrances, those determined to buy just a few investment pieces stayed away from the ready-to-wear. However, Dupreelle feels that consumers are looking for some newness in 2010, which Karl Lagerfeld always brings to the runway. He predicts the fashion house will see an uptick over the next couple of years.
5. Hennessy
Last year’s ranking: 6 Overall Brand Value: down 1% to $5.37 billion
This LVMH-owned cognac brand is ultra popular in China.
6. Rolex
Last year’s ranking: 5 Overall Brand Value: down 14% to $4.74 billion
Rolex, along with many other high-end watch and jewelry makers, suffered greatly throughout the recession.
7. Moët & Chandon
Last year’s ranking: 8 Overall Brand Value: down 12% to $4.28 billion
While it’s not as strong as it once was, Moët is still the top champagne brand.
8. Cartier
Last year’s ranking: 7 Overall Brand Value: down 19% to $3.96 billion
Cartier’s dip in sales affected its ranking. The 
Richemont-owned brand reported lower sales through its own boutiques and a more severe decline in sales to third party retailers.
9. Fendi
Last year’s ranking: 9 Overall Brand Value: down 8% to $3.20 billion
Fendi, which is pretty much only known for its string of hit “It” bags here in the US, has an incredible presence in Asia. LVMH is aiming to position the brand, whose ready-to-wear line is designed by Karl Lagerfeld, as its answer to Gucci.
10. Tiffany & Co.
Last year’s ranking: unranked Overall Brand Value: up 6% to $2.38 billion
While Tiffany didn’t even rank on last year’s list, the brand was heralded in 2009 for its refusal to discount, as well as its plans for expansion in both Asia and Western Europe.

Becoming a Pot Critic - Leaving Wine Behind

Found a interesting little article over @
Wine drinkers have long enjoyed being part of a sophisticated cultural element. With practice a wine drinker can go from being awed at the selection in their local grocery store to impressing friends at a dinner and on to tasting elite crops from around the world. Well its about time the pot smoking community cemented it's own connoisseur culture.
Weed isn't too far behind wine in being appreciated for it's quality, grower's skill, taste and aroma. In fact if you look around you'll see that weed is already highly critiqued. Stoners love trying new strains and discovering new traits. But if you really want to take your pot smoking to the level of a wine critic there are a few things you're going to have to know.

Practice Makes Perfect

Let me start off by saying 4-20-2010 was a very eventful day to say the least. 
The video below was comprised of 480 photos taken on my video camera. (You will see why this is relevant information when you watch the video)
I think we drove around half the state twice & I apologize for not going into details about our escapades, but more will be revealed later. 
*cough cough* About First Place *cough cough* 
The bottom line, I found this old/new song that I really liked, & wanted to try out this new technique I learned. 
& BAM.
