Blockbuster and Redbox – Problems Renting Movies

Off To The Movies

Oh yes… I love to rent movies. I rarely buy them because when I do I watch then one time and then they sit on the shelf or get stolen… The good movies anyways.

But why does there have to be a struggle with renting movies? Oh, I just know all you hipsters understand what I’m sayin. You rent one from blockbuster, watch it and then take it back and then you recieve a little telephone call ( or not) and then they hit your bank account..

Hey, I already brought  that movie back… You dig?

So you go up to the store and and say… You guys took the money out of my bank account for a movie that I already brought back… Well, we can’t see on our computer what the main office is doing. They really just don’t have any answers for me.  Oh wait…Here it is… We have a some new employees.

Sure…always blame it on the new guy.

I thought I’d give redbox a try…It’s cheap and seems easy enough.  I set up an account online and reserved a movie. I went to go pick it up and it didn’t work… “Can’t dispense movie at this time” Of course it hit my bank account anyways.

So. Guess I may try a mail order service… I got a really good feeling about that one.

My Opinion – What’s it Worth?

Well this is my favorite blog… It was a brainstorm of mine after meeting a friend who had a celebrity blog and was making some money at it.. ( A living actually)

It was a crazy dream of mine that people would actually be interested in what DaveStuff actually has to say.  I figured people would often search for “controversial opinion” (and they do) would want to comment on my silly opinions and perhaps contribe to them too.  I am #1 in controversial opinions in google… But to what avail?

I used techniques I learned from ProBlogger to put this site together and hopefully to monetize it! (Do ya see the ads?)

I have not made enough money to even get the first check from Google‘s AdSense program. But that’s OK

I Still Love To Give my Opinions and have more plans to continue this blog and to certainly keep my loyal readers happy… I get anywhere from 20 to 60 visitors every day and would love to keep serving it up!

I’m working on  a new brainstorm now… On a later  post I’ll elaborate on that one…So stayed subscribed… You dig?

Emotions and Addiction

So what are you addicted to?

I know I’m addicted to everything from red stripe beer to ice cream… I gotta have more of everything and less of nothing… Constant stimulation is the order of the day… If not, them I’m sleeping… Let the good times roll! If their ain’t no fun. I’m outta here. Now Tweet it!

It’s not enough to see that new Star Wars movie… I gotta see that movie stoned!

Stimulate my emotions… When I go to the shopping mall I gotta study chicks. Make millions of emotional and mental evaluations. And then move on to the next stage of visualizing the greatness of my conclusions. THAT one AND that one would bring total bliss to my life! Gee what a revelation.

Now I know some of ya cat’s gotta identify with this. Were only human.
HEY! I’m working on it… At least I recognize myself… Get happy under my own skin! (as long as it’s comfortable)

Dentist Trips and XRays

I suppose I have had about 500 dental x-rays in the past few years.

The problem is that insurance changes at the job and then you have to go find a new dentist and they all want to do a full set of x-rays…. I suppose you could go back to your old dentist to get his but I’m sure that won’t be good enough for the new dentist.

I never remember having to take so many x-rays at the dentist my whole childhood and early adult years… Now things have changed . They gotta see EVERYTHING that needs to be fixed. For me, as usual… It’s a mouthful

PANORAMA X-Ray… And I still havn’t gotten my teeth cleaned… That comes later  with two 2 hour appointments… I can hardly wait!

Do Drugs Enhance Musical Creativity?

I took some Tylenol PM last night. I was playing my heart out on the guitar.. I played some of my favorite covers.. Paul Simon, Pink Floyd, The Beatles. Tossed in a few of my originals… I may play a little picnic gig thing in May.

You know, I think it sounded better because I was getting a little woozy from the “PM” part of the Tylenol. Or maybe it was in my head. In any case:

DO mild altering drugs enhance musical creativity?
Do they make you play better? You know there are tons of musicians out there that think so. And some of the best records in history were made while “under the influence.” Or that’s what is said in musician drug circles.

Some Bands on Drugs:

  • Beatles
  • The Who
  • Pink Floyd
  • David Bowie
  • The Doors
  • Greatful Dead
  • Rolling Stones
  • Jefferson Airplane
  • Led Zeppelin
  • ETC..etc..etc

But drugs have a way of telling lies. Maybe these people were talented and creative rather they were on drugs or not. Perhaps creativity is a giftDrugs are just taking the credit. What do you think?
