Movie Madness

I definitely went a little redbox crazy the past few days. I was just going to watch one movie on Sunday night and that turned into way too rentals! Those rentals included:


He's Just Not That Into You

The Haunting in Connecticut

Confessions of a Shopaholic

Obviously I have spanned the genres- chick flick, comedy, suspense, and horror. Some were better than others, and here I will offer you my one line opinion on each:

Knowing: decently suspenseful but with a horrible ending that makes the whole thing pointless

He's Just Not That Into You: star-studded cast and an nicely intertwined storyline (follows the book pretty well) makes this a cute chick-flick

The Haunting in Connecticut: Weird as hell and I can't believe it's based on a true story!

Confessions of a Shopaholic: Very cute and I love Isla Fisher!

So that's pretty basic, but it's just my one-lined opinion. Decide for yourself if you want to rent them or not. Or email me and I'll send you a promo code for a free nights rental and then if you don't like it, you don't have to pay for it! (Thank goodness I used that code for Knowing!)

I'll drink to that

Check out a summarized tour of Rahr Brewery in Fort Worth. Josh from our local 102.9 FM goes to work to make some of the best beer in Texas.

You can go to Rahr every Saturday for their tour and tasting. For $5 you get 3 beers, a logo'd pint glass, and a tour of their brewery. Sweet deal I would say.

Also, on November 7 you can taste Rahr brews at our first "Taste of Texas" event at Strokers Dallas (Name of the event TBD). We will be featuring several local breweries and their hand crafted beers. I can't wait!

A Big Loss

If there is one bad thing about working in the motorcycle industry, it is that your chances of knowing someone involved in a fatal accident rises considerably.

Yesterday afternoon we lost another member of the industry: Bruce Rossmeyer. He was the owner of several Harley Davidson dealerships and the founder of Destination Daytona- the largest Harley dealership in the world. Destination Daytona also includes an ampitheater, related retail shops, and has become a rally destination. Bruce was killed in an accident while on his way to Sturgis, South Dakota for Sturgis Bike Week. While I did not know Bruce personally, I have seen him at many events and was well aware of the influence he had on the industry as a whole.

It's always a sad day when you lose an icon, but at least Bruce left behind a legacy of motorcycling that will not soon be forgotten. My thoughts are with his family.

I'm on a boat

Hilarious music video featuring Andy Samberg and T Pain.

WARNING: Probably shouldn't watch at work or around small children. The language is not what you would consider "PG." Or at least turn your speakers down a little if you do.

...I wish I was on a boat...

Yum with a capital UM

If you know me, you know I love me some Mexican food. Heck, if you DON'T know me, you probably at least know that one thing about me.

So... allow me to share my thoughts on my most recent Mexican restaurant experience:

Fuzzy's Taco Shop in Arlington. Yes, I realize that there are other locations, but let's just start with Arlington.

So freakin' great. Food is cheap. Tacos are good. Colors and decor are bright. And best of all, they serve beer and mixed drinks for way cheap in huge glasses! The fact that I could get a 32 oz big draft beer and dinner for less than $8? Sounds great to me!

Plus, as a special added touch, they put feta cheese on their tacos. Weird? Maybe. Delicious? Absolutely. Just go try it and you'll see. Fuzzy's in Arlington.

Let the beat drop

Another version of one of my current faves... just for something a little different on this Fine Friday.

R.I.P. little one

I don't know what's going on, but we seem to be losing celebrity icons left and right.

Micheal Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, Ed McMahon, Billy Mays, Walter Cronkite, and now... Gidget.

My brother informed me of the sad news. Gidget, the "Yo Quiro Taco Bell" dog has passed away at the age of 15. That's a long life for a little pup. And I don't know if you're aware, but this little dog did much more than crave The Bell. She was also a star in the movie "Legally Blonde" as well.

Gidget: You will be missed. Coincidentally, I already ate Taco Bell in your honor yesterday for lunch. Those cruchwrap supremes are to die for! (oops... bad choice of words...)

I've been roaming around...

This is not the official music video, but this is a great song.
I'm loving it... enjoy!

Kings of Leon, "Use Somebody"

All the World's A Twit

Twitter is taking over the world. However, I refuse to open my own account for several reasons:

#1) My life is not interesting. No one cares if I just watered my lawn or walked the dogs.

#2) I don't need yet another thing to keep up with and update. I can't keep up as it is.

#3) I have been known to get addicted to websites. I can't handle another vice.

#4) I already manage our Strokers Dallas page, so why would I need my own? I can follow people on there and use it as a window into the world of twitter.

...which brings me to the point of this post. Strokers Dallas is now on Twitter. Follow us so you can be the first to know about upcoming events, promotions, and sales. We may even post some exclusive discounts for fellow Tweetsters- so get ready!!

You have a friend request

(from the Dallas Morning News)

I.... do?

I don't know if I would be happy or terrified if this happened to me.

Probably a little bit of both.

...Good thing she said yes!
