Just Another Ordinary Day…In the Twilight Zone

Welcome to the Twilight Zone…

“There is a fifth dimesion, beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimesion as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is in the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.”

Top Ten Super Bowl Ads of 2019

Super Bowl LIII has come and gone which means it’s time for JAOD’s annual Top Ten Super Bowl Ads. Finding ten exceptional super bowl ads proved to be nearly impossible this year. Seriously, except for the top three on the list, the majority of ads under consideration were just…plain…dull. I guess that’s what happens when advertisers are petrified of offending the perpetually offended. Anyway, here’s the list.

#10 Audi E-Tron

#9 Bublé for Bubly

#8 Oil of Olay read more

Why I Voted for Donald Trump

This is dedicated to all the incredulous people who feel entitled to an explanation. You want to know why I voted for Donald Trump?  THIS is why.

Following is the full text of President Trump’s remarks.

Today, I am very proud to welcome tens of thousands of families, students, and people of all faiths and backgrounds to our nation’s capital for the 46th annual March For Life.

This is a movement founded on love and grounded in the nobility and dignity of every human life.

When we look into the eyes of a newborn child we see the beauty in the human soul and the Majesty of God’s creation. We know that every life has meaning and that every life is worth protecting. As President, I will always defend the first right of our Declaration of Independence, the right to life. read more

“What if for one day everything stopped…and we all just listened to the music?”

Born as a simple idea out of the imagination of LA-based artist, Brian Mallman, the first Play Music on the Porch Day was commemorated in 2013.  To learn more about Mr. Mallman and the founding of Play Music on the Porch Day, read his interview with Tone Mob.

Now, if you’re wondering how to celebrate this auspicious occasion,  just go outdoors and play some music! Do it alone or with your friends. Gather on your porch or anywhere. Record a video and share it on social media with this hashtag:  #PlayMusicOnThePorch. Not much of a musician or singer? No problem. Take a break from your TO DO list, relax and enjoy music played by others like Angels in Heaven, performed by Abby the Spoon Lady and Chris Rodrigues which was filmed on Abby’s front porch on August 26, 2017 during the 5th Annual Play Music on the Porch Day. read more
