super bowl ads

I was watching the super bowl and the thing i noticed most was this, there are a lot of different car companies advertising on the superbowl, chrysler, hundayi, bmw, audi, volkswagon.  those are the spots I can remember, I remember thinking the Eminem commericial did nothing for me.

However, after listen to the rush limbaugh show today, I have changed my mind.  Rush had some british ninny subing for him. This guy was trashing detroit for being a city that was the equivlent to european cities after WWII.  He said it lies in ruin and he was suprized they could find a theatre in Detroit that hadn't been looted.

Then it bagged on Chrysler for the ad that said something like this is the motor city this is how we do it, or something like that.  Dude on Rush was bagging on them for it.  I was thinking, sure detroit is in a down turn, sure it is having trouble but if the people that remain there, can't make a product and tout it as being from there, they should quit.

This was a good ad i think.  It shows acknoledged detroit has been through hard times, but rather then lie in ruin it claims to have made them stronger,  I like that message.  Also I get to ad someone to my list of the world would be a better place if this person got hit by a bus list.  If i could just remember his name.

Also I liked the Volkswagon ad best.

My thoughts on the weekend.

The Steelers lost the superbowl, but they dominated everything but the score board so if you're favorite team is going to lose the championship game, it is good that they do so in a manner that makes you think, they have a grand chance to be back next year.

The weather is odd, but I like it.

I like the nook and kindle app for android.  I've read a couple books last month on my cell phone, during lunch break and in bed and such.  I think a nook might get added to my things to get list.

Although, I do not think I will get a nook soon as I am trying to reduce my debt burden, as I recently got a new job, and have received a fairly significant raise.  With that I am going to make my credit card debt go away, then my car debt, then my second mortgage, then my first mortgage, then my student loan debt.

I am watching the local news and a place not very far from my house is on the news for a shooting, that is scary. I hate the local news.  Actually I hate all the news, it seems the news is not news so much anymore.  If it ever was, it seems to have gotten worse.  But I can watch the local news and at the end of the 1/2 hour I am not certain I have learned anything that can be described as anything other than minutia.

I need to work out more.

new post and about freaking time

It turns out I have been more than a little lackadaisical in my posting.  But that might stem from my not having anything to say.  I can't figure out why I have not been posting much other then I've tried not to make political or governmental comments now that I am a fed.  FYI flashing your badge is fun.  HEHE.

Anyway, not sure what this is going to be about but this is what has popped into my head just now.  Jacks of all trades are really guys that aren't good at anything.  This is sort of inspired by my job, it turns out as revenue agents, we are expected to know the accounting and tax laws for all industries which often pits us against people who specialize in the areas that have specialized accounting, i.e. banks, insurance companies, mining, oil and gas.  They have their own odd rules.

That reminds me, I am sorta a jack of all trades too, i need to get a hobby and develop it.  It s like the word ambidextrous.   Are there really people who are good with both hands or are they just equally bad at both.  Ambisinister.  That is a word a learned a while back and haven't had a reason to use but i like it. 

This year however, my goal is to pay off some credit card debt, maybe next year I'll develop a hobby, but for today I am going to focus on debt reduction.
