Posted on Tuesday, August 26, 2014 in World of CO

General Cigar is compiling blog stats for potential banner ads next year and I figured I’d share the cool numbers with you guys too while I’m looking at them! I don’t watch them much, I know they go up every year but I really don’t care exactly how much, it is what it is. But it had been quite a while since I did, and I was impressed lol!

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge…NOT

Posted on Sunday, August 17, 2014 in World of CO

Untitled-3I’ve seen a TON of videos this week of people dumping water on their heads. So far no donations or true ice buckets other than celebrities on TV or big internet videos like Bill Gates. Frankly unless you are someone important, your video doesn’t matter (me included of course). Only donations do. So here’s my challenge video. Donate and post that instead. And for everyone that’s does a lame-ass pail of water and says it’s ice…you have to do it over twice the right way now! ;)
