People quite often go ga-ga for shit they see in the background of movies. You know, things that foretell future movies or subtle story lines. Lately people have been talking about Captain America’s shield on Iron Man. I love seeing those little subtleties, and being able to scream out “I watch the movie good”
Well today I say screw all that.
I saw the Indiana Jones movie the other day, and one awesome highlight for me was the fact that in the diner scene the people in the background were drinking none other than Pabst Blue Ribbon. Pabst is one of those understated cheap beers that is pretty awesome. Normally it comes in a can, and is really tough to find in a bottle(I’ve never seen it before). There it was, the Pabst Blue Ribbon bottle sitting on the table. To me that was the star of the movie.
So next time you head to the Cold Beer and Wine store buy a case of Pabst Blue Ribbon and give it a try. The label looks to me like a kitty litter logo, but it still is worth every penny.
My personal favourite word to describe Britney Spears is: Disaster. I still enjoy watching her fall apart and then pull her life together over and over again. Seriously who doesn’t love a gripping game of snakes and ladders.
But despite being a disaster, she still holds a small piece of me. She used to be hot right, maybe she can do it again. I mean seriously who hasn’t pulled out the ‘snake’ while watching her in the ‘Hit Me Baby One More Time’ Video or enjoying those monster nipples during her performance at the 1999 Kid’s Choice Awards… of course those days are gone.
Luckily I am not here to ramble on about past episodes of ‘Masturbatory Theatre.’
No, I am here to chat about the current train wreck that is Britney Spears. Now this is something that you will not on any of the gossip shows because the average person does not understand or care about what I am going to mention. I personally believe that Britney Spears in some huge financial trouble. So why do I think this? Well I have 2 words that will sum up my reasonings. Most people in the blogging and internet marketing world may understand my theory, but some of you may need and explanation. The 2 words that accurately describe and predict the financial downfall of Britney Spears is…
For those of you that do not know what Google Adsense is, it is (in short) an advertising system created by Google that allows people with a blog or website to place a bit of code within their website, and Google will place ads on your website or blog. When someone comes to your site and clicks on an ad, you get paid.
If you head to the Britney Spears Official website and scroll to the bottom of the page you will find a Google Adsense block.
Not so funny right?
Here is why the seasoned bloggers and webmasters are laughing now. Generally (and I hate to make generalizations but…) Google Adsense pays just pennies per ad click. For some sites that have certain keywords targeted you will get paid a decent amount of money, but for the most part, your just getting pennies per click.
So to me it seems that Britney is going really broke because she has just crossed over to the internet equivalent of begging for change on the streets. It’s really sad but I guess she needs all the help she can get, so why not head over to her site and toss a few pennies her way.
But before you go why not watch the music video for ‘Hit me Baby One More Time’ and think of me:
Well here it is: the first post at Dork and Beans.
For most of you this is nothing, wow another blog. But this is a huge step for a group of dorks. I am not going to ramble on about the humble beginnings of Dork and Beans, that is probably better left to someone that has writing ability.
The fact is: there is no real point to the Dork and Beans blog. It is just a group of dorks that write about whatever we feel like. I give you one warning though, we will get juvenile. If you hate dick and fart jokes, then maybe you should head back to the Martha Stewart blog.
Oh, and our language can be fucking awesome at times to!
At the time of writing the blog is no where near done yet. I have put up a theme, that will most likely get changed around a million times before we find something we like and eventually it will fall on me to design a unique look for the blog.
The first post of a blog is usually the most boring, so here I am getting it out of the way. The second post will be about as stellar as a kick in the junk…stay tuned.
