Bling H2O

Do you Bling? It seems a great number of people get it. The gourmet water has become the official water of the PLUGLA Magazine, as well as winning awards for the best packaging. It’s easy to see with the lovely handcrafted corked 750ml recyclable frosted bottle sparkling with Swarovski Crystals why someone would pay $39.00 to be seen with the new fashion accessory.

    Fine Waters Site calls it pop culture in a bottle and Bling H2O even has it’s own MySpace account. With all that hype the liquid within must be truly exotic. Actually it comes from a natural spring in Dandridge, Tennessee. Yes, that’s right Tennessee. They use a nine step purification process that includes ozone, ultraviolet, and micro-filtration. The source spring is NSF certified to insure the waters quality. The NSF is and international organization that helps protect consumers by certifying the products and writing standers of foods You can find out more about them at http://www.nsf.org.

    Kevin G. Boyd a Hollywood writer/producer noticed he could tell about a person’s personality by the bottled water they carried. Bling H2O was designed to make a fashion statement as well as taste good.  Initially the “Cristal” of bottled water was introduced to hand selected customers. Now the company has branched out expanding it’s availability. The fashionable drink was featured at events like the MTV Video Music Awards as well as the Emmy’s. Even their web site http://www.blingh2o.com screams sex appeal. The product has won gold medals for best tasting water at the Berkely Springs International Water Tasting Festival and many more awards for taste and visual appeal. Bling was featured on Entertainment Tonight and seen in the hands of many celebs like Jamie Foxx.

    While $39.00 seems a little steep for the average joe we do tend to follow the trends. We have been known to pay more than that for a pair of jeans just because someone famous wears them. Bling H2O has made water a fashion statement, an accessory to add to our already overflowing closets. If you’re on a tight budget and can’t buy a case maybe you can get one bottle and refill it. No one but you and your sink will know. Everyone else will think you got Bling.

 

A breath of new life to this franchise. This film succeeds in the satisfaction of both long time fans and new audience members. The action starts from the first from and only gives you a few pauses in between to catch your breath. The cast does a fantastic job of keeping the spirit of the characters we have come to adore as they give them a touch of their own freshness.

The original series first aired in 1966 with William Shatner at the helm of the USS Enterprise as Captain James T. Kirk. This ground breaking series went where no man had dared go before. With an international, intergalactic crew, the first interracial kiss on film, and discovering the Trouble With Tribbles. In the process capturing the heart of a nation giving birth to a new kind of science fiction and fandom.

Five films followed continuing the adventures of Kirk, his Vulcan first officer Spock, and crew. In the eighties the franchise gave us The Next Generation. A couple hundred years further into the future aboard the Enterprise 1701-D. A new crew with Patrick Stewart in the captain’s chair as Jean Luc Picard. Where the original series brought us new worlds filled with alien cultures, The Next Generation gives us androids. Commander Data, played by Brent Spiner found new way to capture the viewers as we watched his journey to be more human.

A few films and series later we had begun the Star Trek universe had no more Undiscovered Country left the franchise has gone back to its roots. As a fan of the original series I was leery going in. New faces and ideals added to tried and true characters usually don’t work. With this new Star Trek, I left the theater with a smile and looking forward to more from this new chapter in the saga of the USS Enterprise 1701 and her young crew.

My heart is all a Twitter for this quicky blog. If you haven’t gotten the chance to check out what exactly all this chatter about the site www.Twitter.com is all about. It’s worth a look see. I’ve fallen into the vat myself!

Twitter is an on-line blog site. Not like this one where I can droll on and on and usually do… see there I go again. Twitter gives you only 140 characters to answer one question “What are you doing?” I see the expression on your face going… Yeah, okay…

It doesn’t sound like much but if you have family that lives in another place it’s a great way to see what each other is doing without the gigantic phone bill. You just log on and check your page for the latest “tweets” of the people you’re following. Now Twitter isn’t just for the average joe. There’s a lot of celebs that “tweet”.  Demi Moore and her hubs Ashton Kutcher  are regular Twetters. Actor/author Wil Wheaton, author Steven Johnson, Tour de France multi winner Lance Armstrong, comedian/actor John Cleese, author Elise VanCise and many more can be found right here for you and I to watch the little things in their lives they’re willing to share. (did you catch that shameless add with the big wigs there. tee hee.)  On Twitter stars aren’t off limits to their fans. You are free to give them a tweet and they may even tweet back! 

You can even track headlines with CNN on Twitter or get the latest on the new exhibits at the Smithsonian. Politicians use Twitter also to chat with the masses.  Senator John McCain tweets daily giving tidbits about his meetings or my personal fav the Top 10 list he gives of the hundreds of thousands of dollars wasted by the government.  For example $1, 427, 250. oo for genetic improvements of switchgrass…. huh? Well that’s a whole nother blog……

Even the President of the United States Tweets. Well his staff does it for him. Obama used Twitter though his campaign to keep up with the voters. The last Tweet was 43 days ago though. Brittany Spears is another Twitter but her PR staff posts the tweets. But everyone is tweeting from your neighbor, cousin, brother, mother, preacher, or teacher.  All ages and social status tweet. It’s a fun way to pass the time when you get on and see what your favorite people are doing right then. 

One does have to be careful as with all Internet vehicles like this there are those who would, prepare for the shock, seek to deceive the people. Just like on MySpace or FaceBook there are fake celeb accounts. There is a George Bush account that is so not George. Also Sara Palin three people claim to be her and another fake Tina Fey. 

Luckily this is the Internet with it’s great EVIL there are some folks who combat it with some good works. There are a few sites that you can go to and verify that yes indeedy it is the person you are tweeting.  Twitter Celebrities http://stuffthathappens.com/docs/faketwitter.html, is a great source of who’s faking it and who’s not. Tweets people…… not Harry and Sally in the cafe.

If you don’t want an account you can still follow the tweets with the Twitter addy of your celeb. Or there is even a web site that tracks their tweets for you.  Celebrity Tweet http://www.celebritytweet.com/, invites you to “stalk” celebs on Twitter.  They have all the latest tweets on their site or if you have an account they have links to the celebrities Twitter page for you to add them to your following collection.

I would love to follow Russell Crowe, Adrian Paul, David Caruso, or Peter Wingfield.  (okay, maybe not just on Twitter lol just kidding not crazy… okay, I’m crazy just not crazy that way)

Now I’m off to post this blog and then tweet links. Then I’m going to…. Well if you want to know that you’ll have to go http://twitter.com/fictionrulz and find out. Yup I’m all a Twitter.

So… What are you doing?
