“A man without a moustache is like a cup of tea without sugar”

All of the best ideas seem to be sparked over beer, including Movember. Movember started back in 2003 with the plan of bringing back the moustache and to do something for men’s health. The rules are simple, start Movember 1st clean-shaven and then grow a moustache for the entire month. Not everyone is cut out to run a marathon or even a walk-a-thon for that matter, but the commitment can be the same for growing a moustache as the commitment to a run for charity, etc. Ladies you can participate too and donate, please refrain from growing out the stache. The monies raised benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation  and LIVESTRONG, the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Click on the links provided to find out what each foundation does with the money raised. As the guys at The Toilet Paper put it, “Growing a moustache is literally something you can do while drinking a beer or sleeping, and a little lip luxury is proven to lure the ladies.” To donate go to and click on the donate tab, from there you can make a general donation or donate directly to a team or person. I say next year we start our own team and rock the mo’s for this good cause! So be on the lookout for the business man, boxcar, connoisseur, abrakadabra or undercover brother….The site also offers some pretty sweet moustache swag, check it out.

Movie Review: Paranormal Activity 2

Recently went to see Paranormal Activity 2 and was curious on how they could make it better than the first one. In summary, the movie is about a husband and wife with their two children and the hauntings that take place in their house. I will say that it started very similar to the first one, the first 45-50 minutes was slow with all of the action happening in the last 15-20 minutes. They also do a good job of tying in the first one throughout the movie, come to find out Paranormal Activity 2 is a prequel. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys these types of movies for sure.

Who's Too Old???

There seems to always be a debate over whether adults should celebrate Halloween and at what age should it stop. I believe you should do what the hell you want to do. Some of the best times I have had at Halloween have been as an adult; I guess the addition of alcohol could have helped that some. I know for my wife it is her favorite holiday of the year. As I have been reminded by some of our female friends, “It is the one time a year I can dress really trashy and it is okay.” It is another holiday that gives everyone a good excuse to have a party and be someone else for a night.

The only no-go would be going door-to-door for Halloween candy, that is definitely the part of the holiday that is left up to the young-uns.

On another note, here is Coed Magazine’s list of the 15 Most Offensive Costumes, might want to avoid these.

Day of the Dead

In Mexico they celebrate the Day of the Dead, which after reading about it makes me wish we celebrated this in this country as well. It is a three day celebration when families and friends get together to celebrate the lives of those close to them who has passed. It is defined as a day of celebration where partying and eating is common place. Traditions connected with this holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased, serving the deceased favorite foods and beverages and visiting the graves. They visit the grave to be with the souls and encourage visits by the souls. Check out the Wikipedia page below.

I wanted to share with everyone a website I found a little over a year ago that has changed my life, They cover the following cities: Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Hamptons, Las Vegas, London, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, D.C. To get started sign-up for their daily email and select the cities that you want to receive info from. Every morning you will receive an email about new shops, bars, restaurants, etc. Also at times you get invites to parties and tastings that are free. The site is also user friendly to search for older posts. It covers Food/Dining, Style, Entertainment, Travel, Bars/Nightlife, Home/Gadgets, Music, Sex/Dating, Sports/Fitness, Career/Money and Cars.

Needless to say this is a must if you live in or visit one of these cities frequently, you can thank me later!! They have also introduced a Thrillist Nation edition which grabs the best the web has to offer, from gear, food, gadgets, etc.

With the NBA season tipping off last night, what better time to talk about the worst part of the NBA, players flopping It really got me thinking when Rajon Rando from the Celtics has dribbling the ball and ran into the defensive player and acted like someone had tased him the way he fell down. I have no clue how refs do not address this and continue to call fouls. If they would stop calling fouls or blowing the whistle then it would stop. It is pretty sad that grown men making millions of dollars look like girls. It is borderline unsportsmanlike!! Below are a few videos. I really like the first one with Pau Gasol from the Lakers, even the announcer says that the only way he can guard Dwight Howard is to flop, because Gasol is not strong enough. The other part is the announcers who see the replays just like we do, and they make comments about how good it is. Below I have also put a blog post I found from 2008 where this writer is suggesting that flopping is cheating, pretty good read.

I won’t even get into the flopping in soccer games, as probably 1 in 1,000,000 people in the US watch soccer.

Flopping - The Art of Cheating

Here is my list of top floppers in the league:

1.      Derek Fisher (Lakers)
2.      Pau Gasol (Lakers)
3.      Manu Ginobili (Spurs)
4.      Paul Pierce (Celtics)
5.      Robert Horry (retired)

We will see who gets the MVF (Most Valuable Flopper) at the end of this season, maybe a newcomer to the list! The bottom line is this needs to go away to bring some credibility back to the NBA, easy!!!!!

First Post....

So after talking about doing this for what seems like years, I have decided to dive into the blog world.

I have for as long as I remember had a pet peeve with people, mainly guys who tuck in their shirt and they do not wear a belt. It has gotten to a point where people send me pictures and even when we travel the whole day will stop to get a picture of someone without a belt. Makes me think of the quote from Wedding Crashes, "I don't even wear a belt...Beltless!"

The other part of the title is guys who wear shants or shorts / pants.

If you have any pictures to submit to the website send them to

I will be all over the map with my posts, so stay tuned!!
