Giving the public something funny and entertaining to read since 2004!
Is it me or do most hot chicks have a screw missing in their head? No really! Why is it that hot women have emotional or psychological issues? Can someone please answer my question!
What are the chances of Silver City receiving a new movie theater? I am going to be honest, the Real West Cinema is a sorry excuse for a movie theater. It really is. Sometimes I feel as if I am watching a movie inside of a storage shed. There has to be someone in Silver, that has a very large bank account and a lot of influence on city council. Why should people have to drive one hundred miles or more to enjoy a movie in a different city or state. Please! Will someone build a new movie theater in Silver City!
Chris Brown is the new Sisqo for 2011! What a fruit cake!
I am talking about Stephania Jimenez! I swear she really is a good reporter and anchor. The general manager should give Alexa Helms the boot, and place Stephania in the weekend anchor chair. Is it me or does Alexa come off as a fake ditzy college chick during the weekend news broadcasts? I love it when anchors are serious about the news that they are reporting. She has such a serious/sexy look whenever she reports or is sitting in the anchor seat! Stephania will probably spend about a year or two in El Paso, and she will then work in a larger and better market. Does anybody know as to which university or college she attended before becoming a news head?
During my college years, I always made sure that I was wearing name brand clothing. One brand that I loved to wear, was Polo Jeans from Ralph Lauren. Eventually I matured, and I stopped purchasing Ralph Lauren Polo Jeans clothing. Overtime I noticed that hardly anyone was wearing Ralph Lauren Polo Jeans. In 2006, New York Daily News writer David Hinckley wrote a story about the demise of Polo Jeans. I have to admit that it is a very well written and informative piece. Here is the New York Daily Times August 2006 article on Polo Jeans. Who knew that Ralph Lauren could be such an ASSHOLE! I think I am going to donate my Polo clothing collection to a homeless shelter. POLO'S FADED GLORY. How the jeans lost their snob appeal

Step away from the Polo Jeans, please.
We know you thought you were allowed to wear them. That was a mistake.
So please just move along. By this time next year, Polo will be back in its place and you will be back in yours.
You might have noticed in the last few years that more people were wearing Polo jeans.
Ralph Lauren, who created the brand, also noticed, and since every Polo logo presumably puts money into his stylish pocket, you'd think it would have made him smile.
It did not.
Like everything else with Ralph Lauren's rugged imprint, Polo Jeans were designed with the "high end" consumer in mind. Part of the reason you'd pay four times as much for Polo Jeans as Gap jeans is that the Polo logo told the world you could.
It said you appreciated Ralph Lauren's style and were successful enough to afford it.
But after Polo Jeans' first wave of popularity, Lauren licensed Polo Jeans to Jones Apparel Group, which would make more money for everyone by broadening their distribution.
Like Martha Stewart creating lines for Kmart, Polo Jeans sprinkled a taste of the good life onto the plates of the masses.
It's a bit of basic capitalism that's harmless right up to the moment when the original high-end customers decide they don't want to wear what their computer tech is wearing, and move on to some other brand that restores their exclusivity.
Apparently that's what Ralph Lauren was afraid had happened with Polo Jeans. So his company spent $355 million to buy the name back from Jones - and shut it down.
U.S. Polo Jeans had become "rundown a bit," President Roger Farrah told Ad Age. "Overpromoted and overdistributed."
Maybe it was the big piles of Polo Jeans on long tables at Costco. Whatever the specific trigger, Lauren apparently decided it was easier to kill U.S. Polo Jeans altogether than reclaim their reputation.
Then next year, the company will start integrating a new line of high-end denim into the whole Polo line.
Presumably it will not be found at Costco.
There's a wonderful scene in "The Devil Wears Prada" where Meryl Streep's Miranda Priestly explains to her scruffy assistant how the exquisitely stylish
decisions of high fashion eventually filter down to the cheap rags worn by the masses.
Ralph Lauren can't avoid that.
But for $355 million, he can avoid having his
label on it.
Step away from the Polo Jeans, please.
