In a few short weeks, a huge group of ladies from my family are going to be headed to Las Vegas, NV. This is by far one of my favorite places to visit, and although many girls look forward to the clubs and shows, I myself, am ecstatic to be able to go gambling in the city of sin. In fact, I love gambling so much, that when I’m not able to make it out to Vegas, I like to go by partybingo.com (seriously, great place to check out if you’re a fan of gambling). The only thing missing from the site that Vegas has, are the free drinks that I fully take advantage of ha. Although, once I’ve been in Vegas for only a couple of days, I’m eager to get back to the simplicity of gambling online, and no cigarette smell or hangovers to deal with. Ha
Another reason that I am impatiently awaiting this vacation is because I love to do my prat falls (see my fall below) in Vegas and share with the many tourists from various locations what I consider to be a great gift: laughing at others when something unexpected and painful happens. There’s nothing like falling in front of drunk people, they can’t help but find it hilarious. Seriously, consider most of the pranks you see on YouTube, Break, etc. Most of the people are drunk while pulling pranks on their buddies, because for some reason, they seem to be the best victims and you have no inhibitions while drunk. Clearly, the perfect combination.
We will be staying Friday and Saturday night and the group of girls includes my beautiful fiancée, Megan, my mother, my sister-in-law, my Aunt, My mom’s cousin and both of her daughters, one of which is turning 30-years-old and has never been to the desert paradise. I expect there will be much more to write about after this trip as opposed to prior. Until then, I’ll practice my gambling to ensure I win the big money this time
After coming across the Magic Flight Launch Box, I was incredibly thrilled to try this product out and see what it could do. At home, I have a clunky (off brand) vaporizer that is usually more difficult to assemble than I’m interested in; So more often than not, I settle on the water pipe. I have a neurological disorder (CRPS) and it weakens my immune system, which in turn means I get sick more often. Smoking as much as I have been is not good for me, and I have been searching for a small, easy to assemble vaporizer that didn’t take forever to get going. The Magic Flight is exactly what I was looking for.
The device itself is tiny and can take some getting use to, that is, if you have larger hands than I. For me, the size was just perfect and made it easy to handle with just one hand. The dimensions are 2.5” x 1.25” x 0.9” and easy to keep hidden, if being discreet is something that appeals to you. Again, it heats up so quickly and makes it easier to use than your average pipe. Vapor formed rather quickly and I was able to take a hit after just 3 seconds, sometimes 4 seconds.
The design is also appealing to me. Lets be honest, people are interested in buying things not only because of what they can do, but also because of how they look. In a way, it seems like a very well made DIY project, and this is something I really like. The wood finish is rather awesome and unique, considering most other vaporizers on the market.
But what really sold me was the price! To get such a reliable vaporizer for only $129 was well worth it. I would suggest anyone get this if you’re looking for something that will get the job done. Yes, it doesn’t have the space to really do the job of a Volcano or other, more large vaporizers, but who wants to heat it up, put it together, and deal with the clean up? Just pack another bowl in the Magic Flight and you’re good to go!
The only thing that I didn’t like so much was the battery life. They seem to die rather quickly (around 5 bowls on average), but luckily they give you two rechargeable batteries, which charge up pretty quickly. If you’re going on the road, you’ll just want to be sure you keep these batteries ready to go. So, while it is a con, it’s really the only one and not enough of one to make me not use this product every day. In fact, I have used it everyday since I’ve gotten it. My throat is not hurting quite so much, the vapor tastes much better, and I can use the remnants to cook with. Love it.
Also, here is an instructional video that is also posted on their website:
Expedia has shared its support for same-sex couples before, but this time, they have come out with a rather heartfelt video that definitely made me cry. This video is a portion of Expedia’s “Find Yours” ongoing campaign, and shares Artie Goldstein’s story. This father explains how he feels a bit uneasy when traveling to his daughter Jill’s same-sex wedding in California, but then goes on to show his support.
“My expectations of what Jill’s life was going to be included a husband,” Goldstein recalls. “So when Nikki came to ask permission to marry our little girl, that startled me. I told her, ‘This is not the dream I had for my daughter.’ I didn’t say yes, I didn’t say no.” Stunning footage of Jill and Nikki’s nuptials accompany Goldstein’s emotional narration. “You come to terms with it…it’s supposed to be this way,” Goldstein observes.
The two beautiful brides wrote to HuffPost Gay Voices and shared their appreciation of Expedia featuring their journey in this campaign.
“Our hope is that all families can experience this type of closeness and support, regardless of sexuality,” Nikki and Jill Weiss-Goldstein said. “We are extremely proud of our father and his personal journey that has led him to his understanding.”
Expedia was able to portray a message of tolerance, understanding, and family all entangled with the unique experience of travel. They didn’t focus on the physical journey that Artie Goldstein took, instead paid more attention to the emotional journey he was embracing. Goldstein was able to overcome his unease and make a trip to walk his little girl down the aisle. Thanks to the love for his daughter and the ease of Expedia getting him where he needed to go, you see how this man’s journey was a good one, all while highlighting Expedia’s support for same-sex couples.
Well done Expedia, well done.
As much as I love my Apple products, I don’t know if I would go to the lengths that body piercer, Dave Hurban, has gone.
In this video, it shows the process of implanting the magnets and ultimately being able to attach his iPod Nano to his wrist without any accessories. Hurban works at Dynasty Tattoo, is from Newfield, N.J., and with the help of Kaledioscope Kreative, has produced the video below.

Yes, this may be a marketing ploy from Nike. Yes, maybe it is “well-coordinated spontaneity on behalf of Nike’s marketing dept.” But, ultimately, it’s a video showing two men traveling to and from many different countries in just 10 days and having an extraordinary time. If you choose to critique this video, that’s your choice; Although, it’s also my choice to take this video as inspiration, NOT to go and buy a Nike product, but instead, to go travel and explore our planet. There is so much out there and so few of us are able to see it all, or even some for that matter. And it’s obviously filmed and edited very well, which makes it that much more amazing. Kudos to Max Joseph and Casey Neistat.
we shot this in 10 days, just the two of us.
Max, my friend in the movie, is a talented filmmaker, he edited this movie. check him out http://www.maxjoseph.com/‘
