Not a Bad Idea At All

At first, it sounds like something played strictly for laughs.

Ashton Kutcher, pretending to be a product engineer for Lenovo, conducting focus groups to get feedback on the company's products.

You figure he'll goof around, put the members of the focus groups in awkward situations, and then reveal that they've been pranked.

Not so. In this clip with a group of seniors, Ashton manages to keep the conversation light and flowing without pushing for laughs, so the laughs come from the participants and the situation with Ashton simply riding herd.

Nicely played, Mr. Kutcher. And Lenovo.

This is the first in a weekly series, so be sure to go back and catch some more.

Way to Get Noticed

Here's an interesting way to get some attention to a public service announcement.

The folks at Nestle Fitness created a campaign called #CheckYourSelfie for Breast Cancer Awareness month.

The theme of the promo is simple: "Your breasts are checked out every day."

To prove that, they fixed a small camera on the partially exposed bra of an actress who then goes about her daily business, all the while recording the folks who glance at or even ogle her breasts. The video's under 90 seconds long and shows three dozen check-out instances.

Others are checking yours. "So, when was the last time you checked your own?"

Check out the promotional video... And then the explanation of the whole thing below that.

Biebs At It Again

Seems like you can always count on Justin Bieber to do something silly or stupid to get back in the public eye.

This time, he took a swing at the public eye.

He was in Paris on Tuesday, walking back to his hotel after a dinner date with Kendall Jenner - because when you're in Paris, you need to break bread with a demi-Kardashian.

Anyway, there's a gaggle of photographers outside the hotel, and the Biebs plowed through them.

Yes, the same tough guy who posted this selfie on the night in question allegedly punched one reporter and came close to choking another one.

Not even a backwards baseball cap and a camouflage jacket can made this guy look tough.

Dracula Unearthed

Just in time for Halloween, archaeologists claim that they‘ve discovered a dungeon that held Vlad the Impaler.

Vlad, in case you missed that day in whatever class teaches these things, was the real-life inspiration for Dracula.

The dungeon was found in Tokat Castle in Turkey, where Vlad was held by the Turks as a political prisoner in the 15th century.

One of the archaeologists on the dig said that the castle is “completely surrounded by secret tunnels. It is very mysterious. It is hard to estimate in which room Dracula was kept, but he was around here.”

Sounds less like an historical find than a prelude to a haunted castle tour, doesn’t it?

Good Reason to Stop Being a Mistress

For two seasons, Alyssa Milano has been part of ABC’s Mistresses.

This year, she will not return – and it’s by her own choice.

She announced it on Twitter this week, and I’ve got to tell you, it’s a pretty good reason.
  “… I can’t relocate. I have two babies under 4. Being a mother and wife comes first and I just can not uproot my children and separate the family by moving away. I will miss this job desperately and wish everyone the absolute best.”

Nice simple sweet resignation letter.

Not the stuff Hollywood is used to.

The producers are probably sitting in a bungalow right now, trying to figure Alyssa’s angle in all this.

That Didn't Take Long

On Wednesday, just two days after playing his final baseball game at Fenway Park in Boston, Derek Jeter has launched his new enterprise.

He’s the founding publisher of a digital company called The Players’ Tribune. A web site where athletes can tell their stories.

All throughout his farewell MLB tour, Jeter was criticized – okay, not all the time, but often enough – for not showing a lot of emotion.

In a statement released about the new venture, he says he’s not a robot. “Neither are the other athletes who at times might seem unapproachable. We all have emotions. We just need to be sure our thoughts will come across the way we intend.”

It will be a way, he says, for athletes to connect with fans, without any filters.

Stay tuned!

J-Si's Blog: And its over... just like that!

We were finally able to have Chloe's first birthday party… almost a month late, but worth the wait. I had to travel the last few weekends for work, and I definitely did not want to miss it, so we pushed it back to this weekend. I am an easy going baby party planner, meaning I just think we need the essentials: cake, candy goody bags, and food. Boom!

Kinsey, on the other hand, is an over the top baby party planner. She loves parties, and she said this could be her "last 1st birthday party" that she ever gets to throw for her kids. She always leaves the option open, just in case I am down to have a 3rd. She also said the same thing with Cason's 1st party, but this one was a lil more over the top.

She started the party at 3pm, why? Because that gave us all day to start putting it together, after she had been gettings stuff put together the entire week. The theme of the party was "Hello Kitty". Why? Because I dont know why, but the theme looked cute. I was busy worrying about spraying my yard with mosquito killer, which ended up all over me thanks to a wind change, and putting up the bounce house. Yup. We got a bounce house for a one year old party. I was skeptical about the bounce house, but it turned out to be a great idea because it kept the 2-5 year olds occupied the whole time, and kept them out of my house, where more damage could occur.

So, a month of planning, a week of preparing, and entire morning spent getting everything just right… and it was over in a couple of hours. Reminded of a wedding. Chloe even had a wardrobe change: she had a party outfit, and then changed into her cake outfit (both outfits made by some of Kinsey's friends).

In my eyes, I would say the party was a great success. Nobody was hurt, there were minimal fights, Cason was given a couple of toys, so he didn't feel left out, and only had one melt down.

jsi-blog-pic-093014Unfortunately, Kinsey did not feel the same way. As soon as everyone left, I walked to our dining room and noticed something that should have taken place during the party. At that same moment Kinsey comes running in saying "crap! Your family in Mexico wants pictures!" I looked at her and said, "so send them some pictures." She looked at me with dispair in her eyes and said, "but they want piñata pictures…" she exhaled and continued, "now, I am never going to be looked at as a Mexican." She thinks her "Mexican Card" will be pulled for life. I told her that was the first time I was at a family party without a piñata… I could tell her eyes were starting to water… and finished by saying that I didn't even notice, and that it was more fun. She looked at me and said, "what if we just have all the kids come over next week, and just have them hit the piñata, and I tell your family we had some picture issues. They'll never know… unless you say it on the radio!" That's my wife, always thinking on the bright side!

At least now we have waaaaay too much candy, and a Hello Kitty piñata… so thats cool!
