Love Chicago now....

Best Children's Movie Ever.

This is one of my favorite children's movies - I watched it all the time as a kid - it's called the Adventures of Mark Twain, and there is an element of suprise and fun around every corner - this segment, however a little disturbing out of context, brings kids to understand that there is good and evil in the world, and there are things beyond our control (earthquakes and storms) that can bring evil into our lives. We still go on, and as the other parts in this movie suggest, you should live your life to the fullest. I suggest you watch this movie before you say it's Banned. Parents should show this to their kids. - Ian

The Ad That Never Was.

I prayed to God to let me enter this contest. Last Monday I got together with my good friend Rachel and we put together this wonderful video for the Malibu Rum commercial contest on Youtube. Well, I edited this piece and tried uploading it to Youtube the day before the contest started - I was ready to win. I watched the other contestants and smiled at the fact that my commercial was fun, simply fun to the eye - and it sold Malibu to you - none of the other commercials did this. I upload to Youtube and enter the contest! I'm ready to win! It's a 25 thousand dollar prize, and I'm going to be walking out with it.

Alas, I find out that I cannot enter because my actress is 23. YOU HAVE TO HAVE PEOPLE AGE 25 OR OLDER TO BE IN A COMMERCIAL WHERE ALCOHAL IS PRESENT.

Let me make this clear - I lost my chances at 25,000 dollars, just because my actress was too young. Note to self, read fine print.

Needless to say I was sick to my stomach that whole day.
