The Shingles Virus‎ is in Me

Hey I had Chickenpox when I was a young kid, probably about 5 or 6. And so, these ads keep reminding my that the Shingles virus is in me. What can I do? Are they telling me I can take preventive measures to keep from getting this nasty thing. NO! They just want me to know how horrible this virus is and that I might get it. Talk to my doctor, they say:

“Hey Doc, I had the Chickenpox when I was young”.
“OK”.
“Then I have the Shingles virus in me”.
“That’s correct”.
“Now what?”

“If feel the symptoms of the Shingles virus, come see me. Now pay the receptionist on your way out”.

I Don’t get the point of these ads?  Am I suppose to do something? Who is paying for these ads? A drug company? Big Pharma? Do wonder why drugs are so expensive. Try using this commercial time to give us some information we can use.

Watching Cloverfield

As a type this, I am watching the 2008 film, Cloverfield. I am 28 minutes into it, The monster just attacked for the first time. Never watched this film before. Never wanted to. I view it this morning because there is nothing else to watch.

First of all, I HATE these found footage films. The first 18 minutes at the party were excruciating. awful. I found that I could care less about these characters and was hoping that a large monster would hurry up an kill them all so I didn’t have to watch them anymore. I mean, I’ve watch people’s home videos before and this was just as bad.

No one would film this shit. I gave the movie a pass until they were on the bridge and the camera man fell over with the camera in his hand.  As this point, the camera gets dropped and survival takes over.

When He films the dud that just watching his brother die? WTF?  No one would ever do that!

Help, this movie is a horrible piece of crap. How long is this?

I want to write more about the stupidity of the worthless movie but I keep losing concentration. I find myself watching the blinking light on my Internet router as that is more entertaining.

I think I’ll watch a classic Godzilla film. Much better! Ot ever an cheesy Gamera film.

The Loungers, Girls 1964

The Loungers do a great rock and roll cover of this old classic and is great rocker that I found on youtube posted by someone called Glendoras. It’s a song that Ringo sand with the Beatles as Boys but these dudes did a good job of changing the lyrics to fit a male singer. Of course it was originally a The Shirelles‘ song. Check it out. This song might make an appearance on Coffee With Jeff.

The following is information from Gledoras YouTube Channel.

“Awesome frat rocker released on Beechwood in 1964! Killer guitar break!! It says it’s recorded at Arthur Smith Studios* in Charlotte, North Carolina. I asume the band hails from that area. “

Birds of Lake County

Took my usual Sunday afternoon walk through one of Lake COunty, Illinois wonderful forest preserves. Took a lot of video. Here are a few screen shots of some of the birds we came across.

The last guy there, laying on the ground, was pretending to have an injured wing.  Every time we walked a bit closer, he would walk away, lay down and fake an injured wing.  He did this until we were far enough away from the nest, then he flew back.

You are NOT a vampire!

I’m watching the Science Channel. They have a really stupid show that I never watch called Oddities. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. It’s a small shop the buys and sells some really weird stuff. Just like Pawn Stars, I have no doubts that this stuff is real. But that is not what this post is about.

A commercial for an upcoming show has a young lady who thinks she is a Vampire and is looking to purchase blood. You see these silly people on TV all the time, people who claim to be Vampires.

Sorry, you people are NOT vampires. You do not need to drink blood. You will not live forever. You can not turn into a bat. I don’t know if you are crazy and just playing a game but you are NOT a Vampire.

Battleship The Movie

Caught this flick on cable the other night. Battleship The Movie is the worse movie I have ever seen. Horrible! I hope Liam Neeson made a ton of money because he sold his soul on that one.

A TV ad I like

For those of you how watch my show, Sunday Morning Coffee with Jeff, you may know that I have a problem with 95% of the commercials on television. I think they are insulting to my intelligence. Let me clarify that I don’t consider myself a particularly intelligent guy (as many of you might have noticed with my punctuation and spelling), so if I’m insulted, most of you should be outraged.

Anyway, I just want to point out that there are the occasional TV ad that I find amusing, like the GEICO Hump Day Camel Commercial. Don’t really know if it would get me to buy Geico insurance, but it makes me laugh.

Baked Cheetos are Awful

Late in the day at work, I often make my way to the vending machines in the company cafeteria. Lately I’ve got in the habit of purchasing a back of Crunchy Cheetos. Not everyday, but at least 2 or 3 times a week I head down and grab a bag.

Last week I entered the cafeteria and already was already puling out a dollar from my wallet when I was filled will horror. My Crunchy Cheetos have been replaced with Baked Crunchy Cheetos. In fact, as I looked at the other chips in the machine, all were backed. I walked away with no purchase.

Yesterday I really had a taste for Crunchy Cheetos so I did what I had said I would never do. I purchased a bag of these Cheetos. All my worse fears were realized. They were awful.

So disgusting were these that I didn’t even finished the bag. Yuck! Who had the bright idea is it to convert junk food into something healthy. We call is just food for a reason! We want junk food… or at least I do.

I really hope the damn vending machine man goes broke.

I have noticed that, besides the one bag I bought, they don’t seem to be selling.

I repeat, I really hope the damn vending machine man goes broke. He gets no more of my money!
