Of course I can.
Mike Adamick is a dad and a writer. I guess he’s a SAHD WAHD like myself, although I don’t like to bestow that acronym upon anyone other than myself because of the way it sounds when you say it out loud. (Try it, I’ll wait.) Anyway, I know Mike from way back when we both wrote for Babble at the same time (he was there first).
Here’s a bit of the description from Amazon:
This book shows you and your kids how to build:
- Comic book shoes
- Rope swings
- Homemade goo slime
- Eggshell cupcakes
- Ol’-fashioned fruit crate scooter
Dude, you had me at “goo slime,” but only because I saw that before I saw “comic book shoes.” I don’t even know what comic book shoes are but I want to make them.
Anyway, I’m buying a copy. You should too.
What? You’re still here? Go get it already!
Oh, and visit MikeAdamick.com.
Answer: Amazon Gift Card. Instant and easy.
And remember — NO SPANX.
Stay with us here.
Here’s how it works (we think). You click the link below. You “buy” a free voucher. Said free voucher will provide you with a code allowing you to purchase an eBook — not ANY eBook, one from a list — via the Amazon Kindle Store for $1.
It probably sounds more complicated than it is. More details are available on Amazon.com. Click the link. Get the deal. Enjoy.
Amazon has a set of 25 songs from Pixar movies for $3.99. Less than four bucks, folks. Instantly downloaded to your computer, or streamed via Amazon Cloud.
If you prefer, you can buy the CD for $4.99. Which is also a very good deal. This way you get the CD, which can easily be ripped onto your computer. And probably stored in Amazon Cloud, and then streamed. Maybe. Haven’t tried that yet.
The truth is at this moment in time I’m more inclined towards downloads. Not that I don’t think there’s a loss of audio quality. There is. And you don’t get a physical product. But that’s a plus right now. Because if there’s anything I don’t need, it’s more stuff.
Now, you might say, if you are calendar-centric, that Black Friday Deals Week is a strange sounding phrase. You might even be correct. To you we say… well, not much. Basically Amazon is offering deals on all kinds of stuff all week, not just on Friday. Meaning you can shop now from the comfort of your home or office. Or the bus. Or wherever you happen to be. Ain’t technology grand?
Bonus: For no reason other than we like the song, here is a little tune from Alice Leonz, an Indonesian artist we discovered on Fandalism. It’s a nice mellow number, which is helpful if you need to calm down because the notion of Black Friday Week is making you cuckoo.
There. Feel better? Now go buy stuff. It is your patriotic duty.
Gather ’round, gentle readers. I am here to present to you the tale of how YouTube helped me get the Digital Copy of LOTR (Lord of the Rings, ‘natch) before the codes expired.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — thank goodness that there are people with time on their hands who like to post videos to YouTube. Usually when I say that I’m referring to folks who take the time to post scenes from old TV shows online. When I’m researching articles for Snakkle, these folks are invaluable.
This time I’m grateful that a YouTuber using the handle Blucollection posted this video of his unboxing of the Lord of the Rings Extended Edition Blu-Ray box set. Read more »
