Big Brother 8 USA - 7/31/07 Nick is Nominated and Dustin Gets Greedy


Tonight's Big Brother was full of surprises. The hand of fate allowed Jameka to opportunity to compete in the Power of Veto competition and she used fate and divine intervention as an excuse to play hard, win and veto Jen off the Block. I must say it was an impressive move on Jameka's part and an expensive one.

As a part of the POV competition, the guests were awarded "Big Brother Dollars" that they had an option to spend for prizes instead of hoarding them to try to win the POV competition.

Dustin walked away with both prizes when Jameka refused to spend hers to opt for $5,000 cash. It appears that Jameka may be planning a powerful run at the end with Jen and I doubt her alliance will fail to notice that they have a traitor in their midst. I highly doubt that many of them believed that it was God's will for Jameka to win and veto Jen so as soon as they have time to do the math, Jameka may wind up in trouble.

Jen seemed to throw the competition, but that really didn't make any sense. It hardly mattered who played the veto and why take the risk that Jameka might back out on her promise to use the veto to save Jen?

Dustin may have overdone it with the prizes. He should have passed on the trip and waited for something better. Now he appears both greedy and power-hungry...not a good place to be right now.

The end result was that Nick was nominated by Dustin to fill Jen's shoes on the block. Hopefully they send him packing. I just don't think I can tolerate looking at all that oil much longer...sigh.

Dick didn't seem to calm down much following his stint as HOH. He is continuing an in-your-face strategy that may not pan out too well if Nick gets voted out. They all need to remember that people are beginning to concentrate more on their sub-alliances and are merely using the major alliances to progress in the game.

All-in-all not a bad show...now if Amber will just STOP BEING SUCH A CRYBABY...sigh

Save Money on New and Used College and University Textbooks for Back to School





I had a real eye-opener today when I went to buy my books for graduate school. They didn't have any used copies of any of the texts I needed and the bill at the University Book Store would have been $429.00. I about popped, so I went home and got online to find a better deal.:D

It took some research. I went to the University Website and obtained the title and ISBN of all the books I needed for my classes. Then I researched for the best deal on-line. Amazon.com's textbook store offered all the books I needed at a 30% markdown for the new books. They also had many of the ones I needed in their used-book inventory and that saved me even more. Some of the used books were 90% cheaper than the new copies at the University. My order came to just over $200 so they threw in free 2 day shipping and that saved me even more.

So if you don't feel like paying full price, go check it out: (this is the address)

Big Brother 8 USA 7/29/07 Dustin Nominates Jen and Kail, Nick's Hair is Critical Again


Tonight, Dustin nominated Jen and Kail. Our housemole, Eric managed to accomplish his task once again and I am beginning to wonder if he might just be a very-strong force at the end.

Dustin is doing quite well as HOH. He hasn't let the power go to his head like Jen and Dick, while nominating two players who don't really have much power in the house should they decide to come after him for revenge.

Kail volunteered to let Dustin play her as a pawn, but Dustin made it clear to Big Brother and the viewing audience that he is merely playing her for a fool. I had a feeling, as I expressed in my analysis early on, that Kail was too power hungry too soon and that still haunts her in the game. Dick was power hungry as well, but he managed to pass it off as revenge and even though he was totally ineffective in eliminating Kail and Jen, the pair find themselves right back on the block again this week.

Apparently Big Brother hasn't called Nick into the Diary Room for a while to tell him to, "WASH YOUR HAIR YOU IDIOT," so he is looking really greasy, with strands of mess that I assume are hair streaming down from the top of his head. I am praying he either gets evicted soon or wins HOH and the basket contains a lot of personal-hygiene goodies.

Daniele is still an emotional mess and Daddy Dick has his work cut out for him to keep his "relationship" with her sound enough to win the game, pocket the money. Dustin may have other plans for the money that don't include Evil Dick, so Dick better stay on his toes.

Jameka is playing a savvy game here and she and Jessica may prove to be a tough duo toward the end. I have a sneaky suspicion that they will vote to keep Jen to use until they don't need her anymore.

All-in-all, the house guests all better start figuring out a way to beat Dustin, who was my favorite to win from early on. He is still working the other house guests and has listening and communication skills galore. Dick probably THINKS he is running the show, but unless he figures out a way to work Nick out of the house, he may be in trouble.

Come back after the next show for more Big Brother goodness...

Big Brother 8 USA - 7/26/2007 - Eric Proves Ineffective, Nick Slicks Back His Hair and Mike Goes Home


On tonight's Big Brother episode, our housemole had the tough job of trying to get Kail evicted from the house. Despite an admirable effort, Mike ended up going home and Kail sits comfortably in the house.

In the HOH competition, Dustin emerged the winner in a Big Brother Trivia game where a person who got a question right chose a housemate to evict. It soon became clear who the house guest's friends were and I have a feeling they will remember who sent them to the bench.

Dustin is in good shape right now. With the HOH firmly in hand he can eliminate one of his opponents and solidify the position of his alliance. I have a feeling that he will nominate Jen, Kail or Zach, or some combination of those three. A lot can change in a day in the Big Brother House and our housemole is a bit of a wildcard, subject to the whim of the American public.

I must say, Dustin is playing a SOUND game at this point and barring a power-hungry tyrannical stint as HOH he is pretty much running the game.

Dick THINKS he is running the game, but I think Dustin and company are merely letting Dick be the bad guy while they sit back and bide their time.

The HOH this week will force that alliance to the forefront. The true test will be how well Dustin handles the power.

Jameka is in a nice groove and is holding steady and flying low.

Nick is becoming quite the Casanova with slicked back hair and moustache. I guess he figures that if he just greases it back he can save on shampoo.;)

Jessica is a wildcard. There seems to be a huge alliance with sub-groups and I am not quite sure where she fits into the picture...if at all.

Eric is not playing a bad game. He doesn't seem to have much power, but at this stage that isn't really crucial. He doesn't seem to have many enemies either and went a long way in tonight's HOH before being eliminated due to buzzing in too soon.

Jessica is still a mess emotionally about being played by Nick. I don't feel that she is much of a force in the game right now but if Nick goes home before she does, she may wind up doing OK in a duo with Daddy Dick.

All-in-all it was a pretty-good show tonight.

Big Brother 8 - 7/24/07 - Dick Becomes too Controlling and Kail Plays Mike for a Fool



In tonight's episode, the housemole, Eric achieved his objective by secretly vandalizing Jen's pillow with mustard. I have to say I am not big on vandalizing anything and am kind of disappointed that Big Brother chose to make the personal invasion of someone's space a part of the show.
Eric's ploy allowed Jen to lie low because everyone wanted to appear innocent. That is the problem with anonymous acts of cruelty. So often, the victim is some third-party who played no role in the event at all.
Kail played a very-smart move tonight that changed the course of the game--IF she wins the vote. She managed to shift the target from her back to Mike's, while putting him on the block to replace Jen, the winner of the POV. Kail has slimmed and toned since entering the house and life there seems to be agreeing with her.;)
Tonight's POV competition was classic. Half the houseguests donned Alice in Wonderland costumes and balanced glasses on their heads, while the others donned costumes and tried to taunt them in to messing up.
Right away, it was easy to tell where loyalties lay in the house and Kail managed to get Mike to do her dirty work by taunting Dick to the point of anger, giving Jen the POV and making Mike a bigger threat in Dick's eyes to the extent that Dick nominated him when Jen obviously used the POV to remover herself from the block. Marcalis remains the only BB contestant ever, stupid enough to refuse to save their own hide. Congrats, Marcalis.
Eric our houseguest will get a new target for elimination via a viewer poll, so I don't know where his vote lies. If he can wrangle his way into a sound alliance mid-game he may go far. The assignments give him a look into public sentiment and that can't hurt his chances.
Dustin, Jameka and Amber are playing the smartest game. They are letting the power-hungry alliances duke it out while they enjoy the pleasures of houselife.
Nick is still working Daniele and overdoing it in my estimation. I have no idea if he has "real" feelings for her and in such a contrived setting I hardly think that matters. Gamewise, he is not playing it smart by creating a special bond or by angering Dick by appearing to play his daughter.
Dick had the game well in hand until he kept trying to control the whole house following his nominations. If you are HOH, once you nominate, it really doesn't matter who goes home. He managed to make another enemy in the house and certainly didn't make any friends along the way. He even managed to break down the renewed bond that had started to develop with his daughter Daniele. His strength seems to lie in competitions...the man is amazing. He is always in the final two at the end of every go around.
In all honesty, Jen may be playing the smartest game of all. She is considered to be mutually-disliked and this may play very well to her advantage. She has managed to slip back into the woodwork after a pretty straightforward stint as HOH.
Of all the players, Dustin seems in the best spot. Once the major alliances finish grinding their axes his group may propel him into a sweet spot at the end. It is still early in the game and a lot can change but for now he is doing quite well.

Video Production and the Internet - the Wave of the Future



Streaming video, from YouTube and other sources, is transforming the Internet. Broadband and DSL have brought video into the mainstream for information and entertainment, transforming once-static web pages into an explosion of color and sound.
The video industry is booming. Tech-savvy companies realize that a single well-executed video clip can entice millions of viewers who eagerly stream or download the video to their home computers.
For businesses willing to take the plunge, this opens up a new arena to grab the attention of a young, tech-savvy audience. Many of the videos on YouTube and other streaming sources have had millions of pageviews. Some of the most popular are actually advertisements that pack a lot of visual eyecandy with music and action. Online video is one of the most effective ways to generate attention for a brand name. Companies that are virtually unknown can become household names overnight if they manage to create a video with mass appeal
The business world needs to take a close look at what online video can do for them. So today, we take a close look at the power of animation.

Big Brother 8 USA 7/22/07 Analysis and Update


I must say my analysis was perfectly on track again this week. Dick nominated Jen and Kail, Nick overplayed Daniele and Jen was pretty quiet (thankfully) around the house.

Dick is playing a VERY-savvy game at this point. He was able to nominate Jen and Kail and honestly, no one could blame him. Both had recently gone after him in some way and would would blame Dick for turning the tables once he held the reins of power?

Nick is overdoing the romance with Daniele a bit. He may or may not have "real" feelings for Daniele, and quite frankly I don't care, but with her Daddy in the power seat I would have played it cool this week and hung out with the guys.;)

As I predicted last analysis, Kail is finding out that she doesn't have much of an alliance. Zach and Mike didn't exactly vote along party lines in the vote that sent Joe packing.

Jameka is seeming a bit emotional for this stage of the game. She ought to be in full-stride at this point and she is still crying over stuff that has absolutely nothing to do with winning a huge amount of cash. FOCUS Jameka, FOCUS.

Dick and Daniele are holding steady and if Daniele can pull off a win in the HOH next go 'round I have a feeling either she or Daddy Dick may go a LONG way.

Dick played it really smart by nominating Jen and Kail. Each is from a different faction and either way it goes he will lose a real adversary in the house, unless there is some major action in the POV process. Jen is guaranteed at least one vote against since our housemole, Eric, will try to fulfill America's desire to send Jen Dick will also get a very-clear picture of how party lines are drawn, once he analyzes the vote.

Amber and Dustin are playing it smart and keeping a low profile. They may be quite competitive later on. A lot depends how this week's competitions play out.

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee Video Preview Trailer from YouTube


I read the book, "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee," when I was 13 years old. I had a really progressive history teacher who had enough guts to suggest the book to the class. He did warn us that it had really-realistic content. That book forever changed my view of the universe.

There is a New World's Tallest Building



The USA no longer hosts the world's-tallest building. That dubious distinction now belongs to a high-rise building in Dubai in the UAE. According to an article on AOL news, the building, named, "Burj Dubai," took a year and a half to complete. Can you imagine how many bathrooms that building holds? Thankfully, the building isn't located in some third-world nation where the bathroom is actually the street or local dock.;)

Lindsay Lohan Arrested



According to an article on E!, Lindsay Lohan has been officially arrested for her latest driving debacle. Apparently the police hadn't forgotten about her drunk-driving or hit and run charges while she was in rehab.


Some people just can't catch a lucky break. Why is it that the stuff we most want people to forget never seems to be the stuff they forget? I'll bet Lindsay is wishing that they had forgotten all this and remembered to pick up her drycleaning instead.;)
I suppose we will have to endure a chapter similar to "Paris Goes to Jail." ... sigh

Big Brother 8 USA - 7/19/07 - Analysis and Update


On tonight's Big Brother, Joe goes home, evil Dick escapes eviction, then goes on to win Head of Household.

Joe was evicted tonight in a 9 - 1 vote. I must say I wasn't surprised. He and Carol were in my estimation, the two-weakest players and hence the first to go.

Dick is actually turning out to be a sound player and actually I kind of like his style. I must say that he and daughter Daniele hang TOUGH in all the competitions. Again the pair was in at the very end of a tough competition.

Jameka and Eric seem in a good form as the coasters in the house. Our little housemole had an easy assignment to have Joe evicted from the house. It will be interesting to see how well he fares next go 'round.

My guess is that Dick will nominate Kail and Jen. He may decide to nominate Jessica to keep her from voting for Jen, but my best guess is that he will want to divide the two big alliances along party lines to split the vote. I expect Dick to make a smart set of nominations....I hope he doesn't disappoint. In fact, this may very well be Jen's last few days in the house. There is a chance that Dick will nominate Nick to make sure that Daniele stays loyal.;) A lot can happen between now and the nomination show, so it will be interesting to see how it plays out.

Mike and Zach may see their power base crumble. Nick is a dubious member at best and even if Dick doesn't nominate him this round I doubt they can count on Nick for long. Kail seems weaker than I first thought so it will be a good test to see how she does if she goes on the block against Jen.

Anyway it plays out it will be fun to watch. Enjoy the show.
