What is life without a dog that can text? In a better question, what would life be if man's best friend can text? Some examples can be seen on the popular social media site Pinterest here. With all the buzz going around the internet, I figured I would teach my dog myself how to text and use a cell phone. Results
Everyone is into the huge trend of Throwback Thursdays today. I don't mean just today though, I mean every Thursday. It seems that nobody knows the true meaning of a real throwback, and I mean real quality video that is still stunning to the human eye today... the VHS. Okay, it may not be the best quality, but using VHS technology was way easier than any smart TVs or smart phones. You just have to know what you're doing, and I'll teach that.
The most ideal setup would be a VHS player set to a receiver, this way the sound would be at its best. You probably have one of these already for your Smart TV so the next few steps should be simple. Make sure that there are at least 6 speakers connected to the receiver too, I typically use 20 at a time if I can rewire the speakers correctly. On the back of your VCR, there's an AUX route that you can connect to your receiver. Make sure that the receiver is on the correct input for what you connect the AUX output from, you can label it as VCR so use your label maker for that if the receiver doesn't have an identity already. Next step is your video. Pull another wrap of RCA cables out and connect them from the output of the television to the input of the VCR, this time use the yellow wire. If you were using the yellow wire before in any of the other steps, you might want to start from the beginning because yellow only corresponds with video while the red and the white corresponds with left speaker and right speaker which means exactly what it sounds like, pun intended. It should be easy to not use the yellow for the sound set up, though, because everything is color coded as far as sound and video goes. If you don't hear any sound, or see any video, make sure the inputs on all of your HQ hardware corresponds with each other to bring up the clear picture and pitch perfect sound. If you just hear sound, move the yellow cable around until you see the picture on the television screen. If you just see video and don't hear anything, move the red and the white cables around until you hear stuff, unless if it's radio frequencies. If you hear radio frequencies, like police talking and stuff, listen for a bit until you get bored. Then go back to finding out how to hear the VHS video again. If you still can't get anything to work, then I don't know what to tell you. You're on your own.
After you're finished with this setup, pull out your Speed and Independence Day VHS tapes and have a great #throwbackthursday

The Billboard awards are alive and well again and so am I. I hope no one thinks I like these artists featured here in this picture here by the way, it's just featured on the Billboard page. Anyway, Chuck wanted me to post my favorite artists of the year based on the trend that was going on via Twitter. Twitter asked to post our favorite artists this year, I didn't like any of them, so I'm going to break the barrier and just name my own favorite bands.
Everyone has that one neighbor in their town. Whether it's the nice grass they have in their lawn or being able to keep up with the garbage better on a weekly basis, it's always something for them to fire back at me. "Well, why me?", I wonder sometimes. I'm an up-standing citizen, I follow the rules and trim the hedges every now and again. Sure we can get annoyed by one neighbor once in a while, but how is it that all my neighbors are asses?

Everyone in the entire country is ready for the big Yankees game, and I am too. when attending the game, there are a lot of ways to go about it. You can go as normal Joe, have a jersey on it, or you can go all out by going all out. I'll go all of the above? Three different breakthrough fashion ideas ahead in today's Fashion 570
As if we just didn't have enough holidays in the USA we would have to worry about just another one. And as annoying as a new holiday may be, another one may be just as acceptable as the next one. I'm talking about the Irish Heritage in the NEPA. It seems like not enough people in the area are here to appreciate such a tradition not only once a year, but they don't celebrate any another time.

The beautiful, dashing Katie Holmes is out on the scene again and she's got a new trick up her sleeve... no sleeves at all. Katie Holmes showed up at this years Met Gala as America's favorite phone book, The Yellow Pages. Most of the other times that she arrived at the fundraising for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute, she was the low key girl and just kind of fit in with the crowd. This year she turned all of that around.
Fashion experts say the idea was "too daring" or had "bad taste", but while all the fashion snobs and critics were bashing Holmes for her fearless and her nonconformist ways, the general population was raving about The Yellow Pages Dress style saying, "Good stuff Katie!", and, "Hell yeah!". Some even commented that they "always wanted to try to pull off The Yellow Pages fashion idea before" but said they "didn't have the money", or, "the balls" to risk wearing such a dress in public. "In the end, it was a very powerful statement not only for Katie, but for everyone in the entire world, and maybe everyone in the entire universe and multiverse that ever dreamt of dressing as something so mundane", another man said so boldly.
Other dress ensembles included Jay-Z and Beyonce dressed up in black and white even though they're still clearly both black. Emma Stone dressed up as the female reproductive system where her top was the clitoris and her bottom piece represented the vaginal opening. As of Kirsten Dunst, well, nobody really has any clue what she arrived as. And last, but not least, Kim Kardashian showed up as Nintendo's Mega Man.

Hello and good morning on May Day!! I got my coffee, heated up my donut and said good morning to all outside! But no response? Okay, so I don't say hello to everyone every day, but what was wrong with just giving a big welcome to the foreshadow of good weather? Joe next door just gave a good stare, nothing in return to my May Day battlecry, so I now deem today as the official "Hey" Day.
What better time of the year than today to just give a friendly hello to all who pass? I have a long list of errands today so I know I'll be running into a lot of people to test out this new holiday. First stop, the eye doctor. The receptionist at the door loves me so I'm sure she'll love the idea and carry on this tradition. I have a couple of other stops including the grocery store and the mall, so at least 60% of the people will catch on to the new trend.
My only tip of advice to all those receiving the "Hey", give a "Hey" back. I mean, why not? Here's to a new holiday!! Now I just have to find a good pair of slacks for the day.
