As the year-end approaches keep in mind that an object will never make you happy. It might for a few minutes, maybe even days, but in the end your experiences are all you’ve got. So this year why not get your family together and do something wildly different. Ignore Black Friday. Try buying almost nothing for Christmas and you might experience the most joyous holiday season you’ve ever had. Buy nothing and experience everything.

Join millions of us in over 60 countries on November 25, 2016 for Buy Nothing Day and see what it feels like to take a stand against corporate domination. Then, as we enter the holiday season, consider what it might mean to celebrate a holiday that isn’t driven by commercial forces. If you are going to buy, make a choice and go local, independent, or make something. Lets take back our lives and stop buying into the consumerist machine.

    When it comes to saving lives, I used to be such a dummy that I couldn’t even spell CPR. But I recently took a CPR class in which the instructor used me as a dummy. Now I am a lifesaver. And if you’re ever choking on one, I can save your life.

    This is a list of Ig Nobel Prize winners from 1991 to the present day. A parody of the Nobel Prizes, the Ig Nobel Prizes are awarded each year in mid-September.

    It means they want to get paid for the item, not get strung along by a slow payer. Generally, that says if you don't pay promptly, we're going to relist a week later and you won't get it.

    Produced and directed by Cecil B. DeMille on a huge scale, this movie is often cited as one of the worst movies ever to win Best Picture. I say it is second worst. Jimmy Stewart as Buttons the clown is a complete travesty for sure. Note that Singin’ in the Rain , a classic that also came out in 1952, wasn’t even nominated for Best Picture.

    It’s one outrage that the superior, devastating tragedy Brokeback Mountain lost the Best Picture prize; it’s another that Crash won instead. These are two separate terrible things that happened, and the fact that these movies are forever associated taints the beauty of Brokeback Mountain. Crash wields its message with a mallet’s touch every nominated movie was better (and I don’t like Munich much).

    Not to sure to be honest but read the article below as it may be of some help. This Sunday, the US-based Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will be giving out its highly coveted Oscar awards for excellence in filmmaking. Actually, that’s not true. The Academy won’t be giving anybody anything on Sunday. Instead, it will be loaning an Oscar to each award-winner, who may hold onto it for as long as she likes and even pass it on to her heirs, but cannot sell the gold statuette to anyone without first offering to sell it back to the Academy for the handsome sum of $1. If, instead, she tries to hawk it for cash, she’ll hear from David W. Quinto, the Academy’s lawyer, in about the time it takes her to second-guess her eBay starting price. The Academy is extremely protective of the Oscar’s singular stature and has fought tirelessly to keep the award from becoming a salable commodity, and to purge the world of Oscar knock-offs. Quinto, whose firm has represented the Academy for the past two and half decades, sends notices to potential trademark violators almost every day: A confectioner that makes Oscar-shaped chocolates. Adult stores selling smutty Oscar replicas. Websites such as Oscarwatch.com. Since 1950, Oscar winners have had to sign a contract guaranteeing the Academy the right of first refusal to buy the statuettes back should the winners or their heirs decide on selling. But, what Hollywood hero could be so hard-up that he needs to pawn the most important award he’s ever received? Harold Russell, for one. Russell was a World War II veteran who lost both of his hands in combat, then went on to win the Oscar for best supporting actor in 1946′s “The Best Years of Our Lives.” By 1993, having spent more time helping other veterans than acting, Russell needed money and sold his Oscar for $60,500. By 2006, analysts estimated that some 150 Oscars had been sold in total, and about half of them had been awarded after 1950, meaning that their sale was in violation of the Academy’s contract, according to Forbes.
