Revisit Van Halen’s Eruption With This Young Girl’s YouTube Video

May 24, 2013

Today’s topic is off topic; but, is a sensational off topic. If you grew up in my generation of the 1970’s, then you are familiar with Van Halen. If you are familiar with Van Halen, then surely you are familiar with his solo guitar performance of Eruption, which is second on the Guitar World’s list of the 50 best.

I want you to take a minute, or approximately a minute and a half and watch a young girl named Tina take us back in time, by playing Eruption, in this YouTube video

Published on YouTube on May 20, 2013

“Eruption” solo played by Tina (14 y.o.), teached and filmed by Renaud Louis-Servais ( http://www.youtube.com/renaudls )
Guitar model: Vigier Excalibur Custom.

Now This Is Off Topic – I Think

January 7, 2012

I know this is a Tech Blog, where we are to be focused on computers, technology, gadgets, software and all of that good stuff; BUT, and I mean BUT, there are those occasions when we need to think outside the computer box. This is one of those occasions where I absolutely was laughing my butt off…

I am sure most of you have seen those “AS SEEN ON TV” products.  As a matter of fact, in my local mall there is a store devoted to the “AS SEEN ON TV” products. Today, in my hunt for information technology news I came across some technology advancements that made it to “AS SEEN ON TV”.

After looking at the images below, I will let your imagination take hold. After your imagination has painted that picture in your demented mind, I then want you to [CLICK HERE] to see these marvels of innovation AND what they are really all about.

P. S. I actually was laughing the entire time I was writing this and it is not even April Fools !

A Dedication to Miss Bucket

October 20, 2011

Folks, today’s post is really off the mark; however, I feel compelled to do a dedication to our 21 year old cat, whom we call Miss Bucket. I am having a difficult time focusing on an IT article today, due Miss Bucket weighs heavy on my mind. You see, Miss Bucket has been with us a very long time and today is her day to cross over; to go to heaven…

  Miss Bucket

Miss Bucket has carried many names during her lifetime; however, the name Miss Bucket is the name she is leaving us with. When I first met my wife, Miss Bucket was included in the deal. I was not really a fond lover of cats at that time; but, it did not take me long to see why Miss Bucket was included in the deal. Miss Bucket shares the same tenacity that my wife possesses. I have been truly blessed with Miss Bucket and the lessons she has taught me. We will  really miss her. If you have a pet, and have been through this, you know what I a referring to. Helping a pet cross over is really a tough call, but God gave us dominion over the animals, and today Miss Bucket is asking us to use that God given authority to help her.

[VIDEO] WALMARTians (AKA: People of Walmart)

July 2, 2011

I am sure, here in the States, you will be doing that last minute shopping for that 4th of July grilling party and one of your stops will most likely be at the Walmart monopoly.  As a result of the monopoly, every Tom, Dick, and Harriet, who once visited the local (now defunct) Mom and Pop stores, have no choice but to venture out into public view as, Walmartians (aka: The People of Walmart).

I routinely receive chain emails with updated versions of The People of Walmart and have come to the conclusion it is our humanistic way of making fun of ourselves in an economic environment that is now controlled by people of wealth.

To keep the humor going, here is a YouTube music video of the People of Walmart (by Jessica Frech).  Be sure to visit Jessica’s Website [HERE] – and have a Happy and Safe 4th!
