Experian, TransUnion & Equifax probably won’t fix your credit report without a lawsuit. Cool right?

Watch this eye-opening special from 60 Minutes about how the people you speak to or write to at Equifax, TransUnion and Experian have no authority to change any error on your credit report. Ignore the annoying commercial breaks. It’s worth it. 40 Million Mistakes: Is your credit report accurate? — 60 Minutes How is this legal? Well, it isn’t. That’s why lawsuits are being filed to correct even the most obvious of credit errors. We’ve had a couple of personal experiences with something like this, … Continue reading

Whew. Homeland returns to Showtime on September 29, 2013.

With Dexter nearing its end and Breaking Bad‘s final episodes beginning last Sunday, some of us are already panicking about which show we’ll have left to obsess over when they’re done. (I am opposed to the zombie fad, so I haven’t watched The Walking Dead, though my dad has told me I have to.) Thankfully, we have a backup plan, at least for now. Miklos and I started watching Homeland two seasons ago, and it’s scheduled to begin again on September 29th on Showtime. Never … Continue reading

Up All Night is (Probably) Done

A week ago, I realized we hadn’t watched Up All Night since (I think) January, which could be seen in either a good or a bad light, given my thoughts on the current season. (Summary: Mostly good cast, but premise has strayed quite a bit from its original intent, which might be fine if not for the show’s name.) After some research, I came up with why it’s been gone a while, though not officially cancelled (yet). While Up All Night wasn’t the greatest show … Continue reading

Whose Line is it Anyway? Maybe we’ll find out now.

Whose Line…? is coming back! Thank Curtis for this update, but thank me more because I mentioned to Curtis that I hate the show Let’s Make a Deal, in which stars Wayne Brady. Don’t believe me? Here’s a link. You can’t argue with that, can you? And here is a sample of what I miss about the show and what I hope will come back. If you have 10 minutes to spare, I mean. Bend a car? Pat Benatar! Are you looking forward to Whose Line … Continue reading

Greatest Videos — March 2013

I thought it might be ‘cool’ if I linked a few of the best videos I’ve seen lately. Although you may have seen them previously, you definitely deserve this video break. PS, I am aware that probably only the Taylor Swift ones is recent and I have come to terms. Kitty Jumping Fail with AWOLNATION – SAIL soundtrack Taylor Swift – I Knew You Were Trouble (Goat Version) And, not exactly something I’ve seen just this month, but always a classic: Whose Line is it … Continue reading

Judith Light Has Had Brighter Prospects

Judith Light on Dallas is maybe the worst casting choice in a television show in recent memory. If the fact that she plays the mother of Harris Ryland (who appears to be about five years her junior) doesn’t speak to that, the first minute of the video below will demonstrate why. That’s not to say I didn’t die laughing when I saw this. Err, Angeler, uh… Share the post “Judith Light Has Had Brighter Prospects” FacebookTwitterPinterestE-mail Continue reading

Honda President’s Day Sale Commercial

Maybe it’s because we are currently on bare-bones cable channels (two channels of either golf or Rachel Ray + one of church + one for Buffalonian news + random), but I hadn’t seen this commercial until today. Honda President’s Day Sale It’s funny AND awful. Among the best combinations. Share the post “Honda President’s Day Sale Commercial” FacebookTwitterPinterestE-mail Continue reading

Val Valentino Strikes Again – Masked Magician Fail

One of the most common ways people get to my site is to search “Val Valentino” or “masked magician” on Google, almost certainly because I once wrote this. In the past couple of days, the popular search term has been “val valentino fail”.  Well, to your delight and to my confusion (what was actually supposed to happen here, magicians?!), here it is. I’m not a fan of showcasing failures, but (1) I give the people what they want to some degree, and (2) I’ve always … Continue reading

This conversation has a real flow to it!

The best show on television which will be ending this year in all likelihood is 30 Rock.  I don’t see a need for a full blog post, but should I die, I think there needs to be a record of this opinion somewhere other than Twitter (my tweets are indecipherable and oft times sarcastic, you might have noticed). OK so I got to rant my little heart and spleen out to someone unfamiliar today and I did it without swearing more than once, and even … Continue reading
