Now this is a flight I would like to take someday if we are ever going to Salt Lake City via Southwest Airlines.  Click on the Southwest pic above, kick back and enjoy.  Thanks to Mashable for the original post.

We have nothing else to add at this time except to remind you that The Voice is on tonight and we are sure it will be another Monday Night concert.

trendingIt’s Friday and we feel like “#Trending” and since this is something new we thought we would give it a shot.  It kinda feels like you slammed your elbow (funny bone) on the edge of a door jam.  Interesting, wonder if we can bottle and sell it?

We know The Voice will be “#trending” next week because the start of the never done before “Battle-round #2″.  Yes, folks, Battle Round #2 is on the agenda this year because the talent is so awesome and they thought they needed more battles is our guess.  Is your favorite still completing?  We have several favorites and we are loving The Voice Concerts each week.

We even started “tweeting” during each show and found that this can become addictive, so we shall be selective. :)  We are becoming hash tag fluent and a pro using the backspace bar / button.  Actual er enjoy reading all the tweets, especially the Huffington Post “tweets” are a good read and the variety is endless on all the others, we would guess a zillion different posts, but we can only say a zillion when we are “#trending”.

We have nothing to report right now except to say if you are a smoker why don’t you do yourself and your family a HUGE favor and STOP SMOKING ?  It could be the greatest gift you have ever given and you will be the better for it.  If you quit for long enough then you can start “#trending” along with the billions of others that have already accomplished this task.  So as we go along today and continue “#trending” we wish all of you out there in cyberland many blessings.

The Voice 2014 – Pre Battle Round Start

VioceWe are watching a Sunday pre-battle round special featuring the “best” of the blind auditions. This is a refreshing surprise because they are reviewing each contestant judge by judge doing the selections.  The show started with all of Blakes selections and conituned on.

The blind auditions we great, but our favorite part of The Voice is the battle rounds.  This is what sets The Voice apart from other vocal reality shows.

We have nothing else to report except to say to you all out there in cyberland, see you tomorrow night fot the start of the battles.

The Voice — 2014 Season

VioceHey! Hey! Hey! Folks!  Another concert night tonight and last night.  Wow!  We sure have some really great talent once again this year and we have only just begun (That sounds like a song lyric, take a note.)   Week after week The Voice only gets better, the talent and the great judges.  Adam, Shakeria, Blake, and Usher all are great entertainers and sure seem to be having some fun this season.  Tonight we had one of our “pick a winner early” moments and the name of the contestant is “Morgan”.  Watch out folks, this guy can win it all.

Since last week we decided to see what American Idol is up to and so last week we watched the top 13 performance and we did a “tweet” on each of the 1st six contestants.  Yes folks, we can be followed on Twitter, so join us sometime.  The name is the same “alaboutnothing” and we would like to build our audience to around a million (LMAO). Okay,  back to American Idol, The 1st six contestants make a cardinal sin and all of them picked the wrong song, yes folks, they never learn, year after year, song after song, wrong song.  So after the 1st hour we saw Sponge Bob had a special so we set the DVR to record the last hour of Idol and off we went to find Sponge Bob, Patrick, Sandy, and Mr Crab.  The next day we watched the 2nd hour and found it was way better than the 1st hour and as it turns out, the bottom three contestants on results night were all from the 1st hour of the performance night.  The contestant that went home we Kristen was one of the worse of the bunch and as we said when the top 13 were picked, she should never have been picked.  This just goes to show you how lame the judges on Idol are.  We do like Keith Urban, he usually has a very good comment, but J-LO is one of those judges who seems like she doesn’t want anyone to get mad at her, she hems and haws and babbles about some of the really bad performances.  Yada – Yada-  on an on..babbling.  Then  you have Harry, the new guy and he is all over the place with his comments.

One of the judges (Not Keith) made the comment to one of the contestants “That was a powerful performance, but it would sure help if you sang in key.”  “Singing out of key sometimes works, but on this performance it did not.”  So what the heck does that mean?  What was missing after “powerful” was “enough to get you kicked off the show in a heartbeat”?  I would love to hear what Simon Cowell would say when he hear that comment.  Yes folks, Simon Cowell is the all time greatest judge that once occupied the American Idol stage.  He is missed!

Our advice to all of you out there in cyberland is to wait and watch Idol when the show gets down to the top 4-5.  That is when it should be worth watching.  If you want to see more “pick the wrong song” antics then continue this week.  We are checking Sponge Bob’s schedule this week.

Our new discovery is The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.  This guy makes us laugh and more than just a LOL, more like a ROFLMAO.  To bad he is on so late (West coast time) but we tape his show every night and watch some of his skits on You Tube.  Here is one of our favorite links from Jimmy’s show <<<< CLICK HERE >>>>>>

We have nothing else right now we hope you enjoyed our new smoke free environment. (We are loving it). (Try it Aaron)

<< CLICK on above Picture for video link >>

When Jeff Gordon did Test Drive #1 we wondered if it was setup, but we did not say anything. Well it seems that someone else also wondered and gave Jeff some grief about it publicly and got a free ride. Watch and enjoy. We are still laughing at this video.

Nothing else to report right now..

The Voice — Season 2014 Night #2

VioceWell folks, what can we say but “WOW!  That was one great show last night!”.  Once again the best voice reality show on the airways / fiber optic lines starts a new season with some of the greatest talent (and judges we might add) in the universe.  Every show is a concert in progress and we are enjoying every moment.

Looks like Shakira and Usher are out for a win this year, and Adam already has some great team members.  Don’t count out Blake, he will sneak right in also and as usual the judge antics, are always a perk to watching.

Last night there was one fellow that we were surprised that no chairs turned.  He was the one that sang “Blurred Lines” and that is one of my favorite songs and he sang it really great, but did not get any chair turns.  The judges said that his dancing may have interfered with the vocals, but that did not come across on our end.  It would be cool if The Voice producers would bring that guy back and give him another chance.  We think that guy could be a winner this year, even though the last singer last night was awesome.

We have nothing else to add right now except that we are looking forward to night #2 and another concert.  We hope all the car poolers are back this year and enjoying each show as much as us.   It was kind of weird using a tablet to post last night because it’s so different than a full laptop, however, it all takes getting used to.

Oh and a quick shout-out to all visitors that this is a No smoking post.  Please extinguish whatever your puffing on and enjoy a clean air and healthy environment.

The Voice — 2014

VioceWe have been waiting what seems like forever for this season to start and now it’s here !  we are kick’n back and enjoying the first show this year.  After enduring the start of American Idol and the never ending J-Lo self promotion, it is so refreshing to watch The Voice season 2014.

We have nothing to add right now except this is or first post from a tablet.

The Voice 2013 – Season 5 Final Results

VioceWell folks our congratulations go out to Tessanne Chin for winning this season.  Clearly America got it right.  Tessanne won this reporter over withing the last few weeks and we agree that she should be “The Voice” this year.  Once again both shows this week were like seeing a concert with all the great singing going on.

So now you ask, “What now?”.  Well folks we are happy to report that The Voice Season 6 startes February 24, 2014 and joining Adam and Blake will be Shakira and Usher.  The two rookie mentors are going to try again,

Also ending this season this week is the X-Factor, and Simon says they will be back next year.  Hopefully with new judges / mentors.

So folks it was a great season and February is not so far away, and we must add that midway through The Voice this year we picked James W. to win it all.  Now I must say, that we rarely pick winners, but I was so sure that I said “If James W. does not win this year I will quit smoking.”  (Smoke free for 24 hours as of right now.  Get back on your chair Brandon)

We have nothing else to report and we would like to thanks all the folks out there that stopped by and read our posts, and hopefully will return often.  Hey, American Idol starts soon and we see that J-Lo is returning as a judge and Randy is gone.

WestJet Airlines Christmas Surprise

Filed under: Consumer — alaboutnothing @ 10:31 am
Tags: , , , , , ,

westjetA few weeks ago we posted about our experience with U.S. Airways, or what we call “U-Screwed Airways, an airline company that is as lame as it gets.  A “cattle mover”, that we will never book a flight with again.

Then along comes “WestJet” Airlines, a Canadian carrier that did something that just plain blew us away.  WOW! What a great airline and one that if they have a flight that is going our way, we will book it for sure.  Just watch the video that had us smiling during the entire length.  Bravo!  To WestJet and all the employees that participated in the passenger surprise, and the people who came up with this creative idea.  Bravo!


We have nothing to add at this time except to remind all of you out there is cyberland that The Voice Finals show is on tomorrow night and even though our favorite James W. left last week, we will be watching the closing of this season.
