Good Press / Television



Scott's Tip Of The Day: I'd like to thank a few bloggers who have been giving me some good press lately. I didn't even have to bribe them or threaten violence. No kidnapping, no yelling, no straight jackets. That's a first!

First there is "Our Blog Review" (click me for Scott's Tip Of The Day review). These guys review your blog and they gave me a pretty good write up. They don't like my black blog background, but I am just going to chalk that up to their fear of the dark, because everything else they had to say was nice.

I'd also like to thank Unfinished Rambler (click me for post relating to Scott's Tip Of The Day). A very funny blog worth checking out. They gave me a shout out on Sunday. And finally, there is Knuckledraggin My Life Away (click me for Scott's Tip Of The Day related content) A really funny website but borderline not appropriate for work so watch out! Maybe you can read it when you are all alone before you cry yourself asleep at night.

Anyway, Scott's Tip Of The Day is to check these sites out. Some of you may be thinking "Scott, this isn't enough! I need more guidence in my life." Well, ok ok....


Scott's (Second) Tip Of The Day: If you have a kid, you should really keep track of what they watch on TV. (If you don't have a kid, and you really want to be creepy, you can keep track of what your neighbor watches on TV).

So, I was flipping through the channels on Saturday morning and there was nothing on TV. I tried watching some Nickelodeon, you know to see what the kids are into these days. Some tweens were yapping on and on about the Jonas Brothers. What ever happened to You Can't Do That On Television? Anyway, after a short while the show went to commercial. Phew. But what commercial appeared on the TV? A Playtex commercial! What??!! This is Nickelodeon!! Little kids watch this!! You know what a tampon commercial does to a 6-year-old boy? It blows up his world. Kaboooooommmm! "Mommy, what's a tampon? Mommy, when is my special friend coming over? Mommy, am I spotting?" What a mess. Good thing I don't have (legitimate) kids. But then that got me thinking....

How the hell do they fit all this stuff into a tampon. "Our tampon has super mega hyper absorbant power!" Really? Wow! Just last week it was only super hyper absorbant power. How did you fit the mega in there? How much more s*** are you gonna cram into that thing? What are you going to put in there next, an AM/FM radio?

So where am I going with this? Don't let your kids watch TV, make them read my blog instead.

I loved You Can't Do That On Television! I think some famous actress now was on there right? Hell I can't remember am knee deep into the Jonas Brothers at my home!

I believe it was Alanis Morisette

I always wondered why tampons came in different levels of absorbency. If you have a choice between "absorbent" and "super ultra-absorbent," who in their right mind would just go for "absorbent?"

The results of miscalculating your absorbency needs could be catastrophic.

Although I firmly believe in exposing your kids to the harsh realities of the world at the earliest possible age, I'd have to agree with you on wondering what exactly is going on in the world of the period. Why are we supersizing our tampons. This is troubling.

I think supersized tampons are more about how wide they are rather than absorbency. Some 'looser' women may need the breadth and girth of the super dooper size just so it stays in and doesn't slip right back out there because it didn't quite fit snug enough.

Yup keep kids away from the telly - make them do charity work instead.

Whattya mean Knuckledraggin is borderline NSFW? It is if you work where I do!
Thanks for the mention though, I really appreciate it.
Love your site!

That is disturbing about the tampon commercial. What the fahrvenugen anyway?

And really, it was my pleasure giving you a shout out...there's too many funny bloggers out there. It's hard to keep track of y'all.

It was indeed Alanis, from Ottawa where the show was produced. Nice piece. I've linked you to my blog, Scott.
