I Am Thankful For… CatsForGold.com

It’s that time of year again.  Parades.  Turkey.  Gravy.  Mashed potatoes.  Drinking.  Fighting.  Sleeping.  Buying.  And above all else… thanking (as Joey on Friends would say, “Supposably“).

So here I am ready to kick off a weeks worth of giving just that.  Today, I’d like to say thanks for the existence of CatsForGold.com.

Sounds like a deal to me! If only all pets could be mailed...

I love getting things in the mail and for once the mail will love me back!  All I need to do is find some gold lying around… here’s my class ring my mother told me I wouldn’t want later in life (moms know everything!), and here’s a pocket watch that’s on a gold-plated chain… I think there’s some gold in this pen…

Plop into the CatsForGold envelope, and plop into the big blue box!  I wonder what Cat-tankerous (his name) will look like.  The bottom bar has already been set…

He looks cantankerous...

The Sh– To Just Sh–ty… Movie Themes

(I apologize for the slow load on this page, but I decided to collect the clips for easier access.  And sorry the list is so long, but I wanted to prove a point.)

When talking about a movie’s score, modern audiences probably think it has something to do with how much it made at the box office on opening weekend, or what it’s rated on Rotten Tomatoes.  In actuality, the movie’s score – primarily the theme song – should be more than a cue to what you’re supposed to feel throughout watching the flick.  It should capture the spirit of the story in a melody… one that you can carry with you in a hum.

As a child, all my favorites had excellent theme songs (you can hum them without a hint):

  • Star Wars
  • Indiana Jones
  • Superman
  • Back to the Future
  • E.T.
  • Jaws
  • James Bond
  • Rocky
  • Batman (Michael Keaton)
