The world of nerds lost our hero, our rockstar Stan Lee. Stan has helped many of us generational awkwardly outcasts deal with the world by making being misfits cool. I was introduced to Marvel when my brother bought X-Men comic. I read that series and was hooked. I realized that these characters all had something in common although all the characters are misfits or outcasts they had each other creating a family or unlikely people. Fighting against a world who don’t accept their gifts, what amazing theme.
Top Decease Celebrity Money Makers of 2017
Hello Kings and Queens of social media, today’s blog is inspired by how much money deceased celebrities make. As I sit and drink my dirty martini and watch a rollercoaster ride “the world series” #GoDodgers I see tons of commercials featuring music or images of deceased celebrities. One deceased celebrity pops in mind Elizabeth Taylor, February 27, 1932 – March 23, 2011 (ranking number 12 earning $8 million). At the time of Taylor’s death her estate was worth estimated $600 million which will be close to a billion today, but that doesn’t stop her estate for raking in the money with her classic Elizabeth Arden perfumes producing “White Diamonds” and “Passion”, I got the idea to research and here’s the top deceased celebrity money makers of 2017.
Today blog post is inspired by the Academy of Motion Pictures of Arts and Sciences and the bone-head decision to add a new category to gain better ratings and secure more viewership.
And the Oscar goes too…… How many times have we heard that line and thought wow this movie just won for best picture and I never heard of it. I wonder how this is possible especially when there’s great performances in movies like Chris Evan in The Avengers Infinity War (2018) or Henry Cavill in Superman Man of Steel (2013) or Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman (2017) or Chadwick Boseman and Danai Gurira in Black Panther (2018). You would think that with the late Heath Ledger’s brilliant performance as the Joker in The Dark Knight (2008) winning the best supporting Oscar, that the Academy would be more open to nominating films of this caliber.

Inspiration comes on all forms and today blog post is inspired by doing something so natural TV binge watching. I been doing a lot of that lately on Netflix catching up on my British telly as they say and I notice something very unusual, well unusual for us Americans and that is on British telly apparently police officers don’t carry guns. Amazing huh? I know I said I won’t get political here but there’s always the first the one and only exception to the rule and this blog is it. I decided to put down the martini’s, put down the remote and really think about what or how I will present this thought…..
“Creciendo el estilo de los años 80” Spanish for “growing up 80’s style” a childhood I wouldn’t change for nothing in the world is the topic of this blog post. As I sit here listening to Sirius-XM 80’s channel Don Henly “Boys of Summer“ memories of a time in my life where things were so simple. Even though there’s always the threat of a nuclear war the cold war between USSR and USA at a stale-male the world waits for one to call check mate a point made in the song “Land of Confusion” by Genesis, the 80’s decade started out with a whisper ending with a bang. 80’s created a lot of innovative stuff fun stuff. Some stuff didn’t survive and some stuff did survive and we still use today. The 70’s seen the birth of 8-track tapes and vinyl (albums), the 80’s gave us cassette tapes, CD’s, video, Walkman, Atari, Cable TV and of course MTV.
Hello Social Media Knights, today blog is about that infamous SNL skit of Safelife. We all heard of those infamous Safelife commercials? “Safelife Repair, Safelife Replace” infact I have had the pleasure of dealing with the Technicians. I like how quickly they response, how relatively inexpensive they are but most importantly what a convenience. You probably have no idea why I’m blogging about Safelife, last weekend SNL did a skit, the basis is that commercial but unlike the commercial the Safelife Tech is portrayed as stalking a mother/daughter duo. Mother and daughter noticed a crack in their windshield as they were on their way to daughters High School Basketball game. Like the commercial, they called Safelife for repairs. Unlike the commercial, a creepy tech appears played by Beck Bennett. He fixes the crack and all is well or so we think.
Hello everyone I am very excited to bring to you this blog because I am excited about Netflix sleeper hit “Radius”. It seems like Netflix is making all the right moves with signing of both TV super media giants Fox golden boy “Ryan Murphy” creator of “American Horror Story” and “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” and ABC hit maker “Shondra Rimes” creator of “Grey’s”, “Scandal” and “How To Get Away With Murder” to multi-million contracts for content. Netflix is definitely becoming a huge factor in how we watch content. With shows like “Strangers Things”, “Death Note” and the big hit “Bright” starring “Will Smith”, Netflix is definitely a big threat to Amazon, Hulu and other streaming media making them stand up and take note. If you want the viewership and to maintain that viewership you get the best of the best right?
With the every changing way we watch original programming, streaming is the way to go. Most viewers are cutting the cord so-to-speak and watching TV through Amazon Fire Stick, Google and other streaming devices. The question isn’t how to stream but what to stream. There are so many choices like Amazon Prime and Hulu the options are as wide as the grand canyon.
