Your Turn

I have been getting a lot of requests to have a plug anything you want to plug Your Turn so here is your chance. Recipes, bands, clubs, music, videos, movies, products, anything you want you can do it all right here. Oh, and also I want to know if you have ever bought anything from an infomercial. My mom has bought so much stuff that my dad went and bought a storage shed. The contents of the shed looks like an As Seen On TV catalog.

Oh this should be fun. Never bought anything off an infomercial. Hate them. I have an uncle who is addicted. How many pink plastic flamingos can you have?

ms snarky said...

I actually bought an Instyler from an infomercial. It's the hair straightener that looks like a big curling iron, only the barrel revolves.

It is freaking fantastic. They sell them in stores now, and they are amazing. Highly recommended.

ms snarky said...

I also own a cardio glide that was on infomercial, but I got it at a garage sale for $10. Also really great, it works out your whole body at one time. I quite like it.

Heck, I also own one of those exercise boards that Christie Brinkley and Chuck Norris and Wesley Snipes do the adverts for.
It is just as advertised, works you out really well. Love it.

MCH said...

Aww, Enty, you are nice to do this b/c I think you did this not too long ago. I didn't plug anything, but I will now. :)

I'm graduating soon with a degree in web design so if anyone needs a website built, I will be happy to help!

I am not as bad as Enty's mom but we have lots of As Seen on TV products. I think the one I got most excited about in the last few years was the Perfect Brownie Pan b/c I imagined making them & having everyone take one (by my imaginary pool) as soon as I put them out on the table. :)

insomnia and a credit card are a dangerous combination. Oh yeah, infomercials have overcome my good judgment more than once ;)

Nothing to plug but I seriously want to buy one of those Miracle Hanger thingies or whatever they're called. They hold around 10 pieces of clothing but collapse so that only one hook is on the rail?? Sorely needed since my bf refuses to give me ALL the space in the closet. Selfish bastard.

Borg Queen said...

OOH Ms. snarky..the Instyler really works? I totally want one.

Yes there used to be a "As seen on TV store" near me that I frequented often. I bought a pasta grabber that into a spatula, some glue stick that turned in cement, the handheld sewing machine (that didnt work) and some other junk I cant remember.

I did receive from my mom for christmas The "Cami" which is like a dicky to go under a tanktop.

lisap515 said...

Ms Snarky, good to know! That thing fascinates me and I've been resisting the urge to buy it now that it is "in store".

La Pachuquita said...

ok, Enty, I'm going to take you up on your invite to plug something. My blog (with two of my dear friends), Rockeras Sin Fronteras (Lady Rockers Without Borders), www.rockeras-sin-fronteras.blogspot.com. Its about Spanish Rock, global politics, and the occasional personal story/rant. Its politically left, centered on our love for music and art, and oh so right in all the right places! Check it out... Much love to all CDAN readers.

Nichole said...

I bought a Leg Magic machine once. I used it twice and then put it in the cupboard under the stairs. I am never again going to watch TV in the wee small hours when I have been drinking all night!

There's a supermarket chain in my area that has an "As Seen on TV" section in one aisle...everything from the Veg-o-Matic to the Snuggie. One thing I do want to try? The unit you plug into your cell phone that turns you car radio into your phone. That seems kinda cool.

First album I ever bought (Elvis' Greatest Hits) I bought from a TV when I was 6. That kind of counts right? I always wanted a Bedazzler...I've got a Disney blog, enjoy: http://justoffmainstreet.wordpress.com/

girltrav said...

Rocket Queen-The Wonder Hanger? So funny I got one for Christmas and never took it out of the box! You can get them at Bed Bath and Beyond for 9.99. I just checked the website and saw them.
I obviously love research! I wish I could get a job doing that...

Mango said...

@ RQ - I think that there are two types of those hanger thingies. One type is plastic, and those apparently suck. The other type is metal and is (allegedly) a superior product.

I look for reviews online for just about anything I purchase anymore. Amazon is a great place to read reviews.

Once I bought a rotating scrubbing brush (for cleaning jobs like bathroom tile/grout, etc.) and it SUCKED! What they didn't mention was that you have to hold your finger down on the on switch the entire time. No ON/OFF switch. After barely a minute my hand was aching. Luckily I got it at a Bed Bath and Beyond, so I returned that POS.

Tempestuous Grape said...

@ms snarky -- Ohhhh, thanks for the Instyler tip. I have been wondering it really works. I need one so bad!

RocketQueen said...

@girltrav - yes! Wonderhanger! Thank you! I keep waiting for the commercial to come on so I can write down the info, but now that I have the name, maybe I can track it down online since we don't have a Bed, Bath and Beyond in Vancouver (I don't think?)
But now that Mango mentions the plastic ones suck, I think I'll go with the metal!

Jamie's Girl said...

Texas Realtor here! Let me know if I can be of assistance. Everyone thinks that they can be their own realtor, but I had 2 of the worst cases I have seen in a long time, and I was able to bring the deals 'right side up', but only with excellent communication and course redirection.

Or if you need an Autism Mom/Friend, count me in!

Tempestuous Grape said...

I have never bought anything from an infomercial, but my mom is totally into it, thus, I often get items as gifts. The only thing I really love is the under door thingy..can't think of the name..it's cheap as hell but it works for me.

I've nothing to plug really. Hmmm, ummm, maybe this actually:

Lynette said...

I did buy a Tony Little Gazelle at Walmart after seeing it on TV. It's good but gets more use as a clothes rack in our bedroom.... My mother bought me the Magic Bullet (great), the BT Express (great until the non stick finish wore off in about a month) and my MIL just gave me the Slap Chop (which smashes things more than chops) and the Gratey, which is ok based on the 1 time I used it. I don't cook well but I can paint really nicely. Check out my dishwasher safe wine and martini glasses on lynettesadowystudios.artfire.com
Thanks Enty. I'll have to send you a couple!

Ice Angel said...

I would love any smokers out there who want to quit to try the e-cigs I have been smoking. They are awesome! www.v2cigs.com

If you use my discount code of 61052 you will get 15% off of your purchase.

If you smoke non-filters order full. If you smoke regular cigs order medium. If you smoke lights order light. If you smoke Marlboro get Cowboy. If you smoke Parliament get Congress. The coffe, chocolate and vanilla flavors are incredible! If you smoke menthol, I would recommend the menthol flavor or peppermint. I actually enjoy the peppermint myself and I am a regular flavor smoker.

I have not had a regular cigarette in almost one month and haven't had a desire. As a matter of fact, I still have a full pack of smokes sitting around somewhere that I never even smoked.

Good luck!

Ice Angel said...

@RocketQueen-I bought those years ago and they sucked. They didn't really create much more room and they broke easily. Plus it was difficult to get stuff on and off the things. The stuff still bunches even though it collapses down, if you know what I mean. It still takes up room, but it's just lower. Hard to explain.

oh i want to plug my bff art website www.sabermen.com

He was inspired by the Twilight vampires and re-envisioned them as the supermodels of the 90s, namely
Yasmeen Ghauri, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington and Kate Moss.

If you know about the supermodels, I would interested to know ur opinions on my bff's artwork.

RocketQueen said...

Thanks, Ice Angel! Maybe I'll save the cash and keep doing what I am now, which is slowly moving my clothes further and further across that halfway line ;)

Nate F. said...

I've been debating about this for a while, but I guess I should start getting this out there. Back in September I started My own gossip website - it's something I pretty much do for myself, but I've gotten some pretty good feedback. I'm also looking for a designer to help me out. I'm trying to learn wordpress currently - I figure next week I'll be removing all content, starting rom scratch and uploading it all to WP. We'll see how that goes. Readers of CDAN might like my site.

Hope some of you enjoy.

The Missus said...

I've never bought anything from an informercial directly, but I bought Space Bags from a store, and I think they had an informercial. They do what they're supposed to do, but I use them less than I thought I would.

What I want to plug is the thing I love most right now: The Gay Pimpin podcast. It's free to be downloaded from the iTunes store, or on the Gay Pimp website. I'm not affiliated with the podcast at all, but it makes me laugh so much and I can't get enough of it.

Nate F. said...

This is for poster "MCH" above. I'm interested in contacting you to help design my gossip/pop culture website. I listed the name of it in in a post above (didn't want to promote something twice here) - you can contact me through there.

Cheers.

Cheers Enty.

chihuahuense said...

oh, and I love infomercials. I watch them like movies. I especially love the "magic bullet" and the bald guy in it, and I wanted a Little Giant for my anniversary and my husband refused. My son told me that he needed one of those foot scrubbers (he's four) and he wanted to get me some pajama jeans (MCH-please tell me you didn't buy any) so I guess I passed that gene on to him.

mingreader said...

Saw a great band live this summer, would love to plug them! Tokyo Police Club:

Glad to hear you're awesome, Jen. That made me smile.

The last thing I bought from TV was the Riverdance video (VHS tape).

Rocket Queen- I found the metal ones at Bed Bath and Beyond online. Here is the link

Never thought we'd all talk about those damn hangers!

For anyone in Los Angeles that misses The Frosty Heidi and Frank radio show from 97.1 and KABC they have a new show (without Frosty) at www.heidiandfrank.com
It's free (or VIP) and it's hilarious!

How nice of you Enty!

I'm going to plug my bean-to-bar chocolate company in Guatemala. We make premium chocolate from the best Guatemalan cacao beans, and from that chocolate make a huge array of products.

You can check out our website at www.dantachocolate.com It's in Spanish but if you click on the little US flag on the top right hand corner you'll be taken to the English version.

You can also visit our Facebook fan page, just enter "Danta Chocolate" in the search space and you'll get there. We have over 20,000 "fans" and have great interaction with them. Hope to see you good CDAN folk there!

I have nothing to plug, really, but you can always click on my picture to get to my blog. I have to warn you though, it's been a place of suckage and sadness lately *L*

I own a Magic Bullet and a leopard print Slanket.


RocketQueen, we have BB&B in Calgary so let me know if you want me to pick up one of those hanger things for you and ship it :)

Mooshki said...

I convinced my mom to buy a Little Giant ladder, and I LOVE that thing. I do a lot of indoor and outdoor house painting, and it's really helpful for odd angles, and super sturdy. I don't know if it's worth the $400 it cost, but it's nice.

thehousewife said...

Yes, I used to buy things all the time at 3 am.. a treadmill, that kitchen thing that I could make amazing sandwiches with just ready-to-make busicuit.

I'll plug my website/blog about decorating, vegan eating, fun stuff!

RQ - oh van is sooo beautiful and sunny today but cold! i can't wait for spring! ps - if you haven't been to park royal "the village" it's got a huge home sense too which is kinda like a BBB - it's a pretty good mall if you want a change from downtown. enjoy the sunshine!!! ( if i show up as "piper" on my profile, this is christine - i have another account )
have a great weekend everyone!

RocketQueen said...

yeah, a little on the chilly side for Van, but I'll take this over the rain any day! Have a good weekend....I'm actually heading over to your side of the bridge to do some snowshoeing this weekend so I'll totally check out the mall - thanks again!

RocketQueen said...

@thehousewife - you have a vegan blog?? Awesome! So checking that out...

Doc Girl said...

I also agree, INSTYLER is a great invention!!! I love mine. I have wavy hair and this thing irons and smooths my hair to perfection. There is a buzzing noise that accompanies it, but I'm used to it and it's a minor complaint.

clayton322 said...

I'll plug my blog that I have only told like 4 people about. Its not really about anything but here goes

P.S. Love the site Enty!

MadLyb said...

I bought one of those roller ab slides that was on an infomercial, but think I bought it at K-mart. It works great!

My sister is a sucker for the infomercials, which is odd because she's a lot smarter than I am. Anyway, I usually get the free extra thing she buys - like the magic bullet. It's wonderful but sis burnt out her motor ages ago.

Well, I guess I'm off to check out soaps and vegan blogs...

This was so fun to read! I saved a bunch of posts to check out later.

@Ice Angel - Good for you!

@Nate F. - I will contact you through your site, thanks! :)

@chihuahuense - I thought about the pajama jeans when I read this thread & no dammit, I have not bought them yet. :) I am withholding temptation for now. :)

@lanasyogamama - I started subscribing to Adventurous Kate's RSS feeds after Enty's last "plug" post but I haven't gotten a chance to read every post YET. She is living my dream though!

@Heidi - I need a new cat tree! Wish you were on the east coast! :(

This was fun! Happy Friday all!

Sis said...

Wow...I have to check out the Instyler, vegan blogs, gossip blogs, housewife and food blogs, artwork, and cat trees, and new authors, etc. I am in heaven!

Thanks Cdaners!

I used to buy every single diet item, video, exercise program, etc., I sold them all on Ebay last year, the clutter was so bad.

Now I do Weight Watchers and exercise 3 to 4 times a week.

Hope everyone has a nice weekend!

My friends sell clothing for kids. =D

Rocky Mountain Kid was created in 2008. After the arrival our daughter Cadence we wanted to continue our outdoor pursuits and share the fun with her too. It took us some time, and trips to many different retailers to find the right gear for our adventures. We thought wouldn't it be great if parents could find all this great gear in one place, and so Rocky Mountain Kid was born. Rocky Mountain Kid's goal is to provide you with quality clothing and accessories necessary for your active children. At RMK, we strive to make your online shopping experience a quick and pleasurable one, so you can get back outside to play.

My five year old daughter is dying of an inoperable, malignant brain tumor known as DIPG. Her mother and I have founded a charitable foundation in her honor. We hope to raise $1 million to help build a children's learning center at the Ocean Institute near where we live in California, Maddie's favorite place in the world. Please consider donating:

www.maddiejamesfoundation.org

Your donation will be tax deductible. Thank you.

Mango said...

Your donation will be tax deductible. Thank you.


I'm not saying not to give; I'm saying to do your research first.

Yes, damn my black soul for being so tired, suspect and jaded, but from the Maddie James website itself:

© Maddie James Foundation - The Maddie James Foundation is a pending nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization and its application for exempt status has, as of the date hereof, not been approved by the Internal Revenue Service. However, your donation will be fully tax deductible retroactively... upon the IRS’s approval of The Maddie James Foundation’s 501(c)(3) status.

Give if your heart tells you to, but I've been burned too many times to donate $$$ to a charity without thoroughly researching it.

js said...

I'm plugging unsigned Chicago band Empires, because if any unsigned Chicago band deserves a plug, it's them.

Their music is really good. Shades of classic rock, shades of punk, shades of singer/songwriter/folk, shades of pop. They offered up their first record for free download. They're too broke to travel to the West Coast. They're all really nice guys.

http://www.weareempires.com/

I really strongly encourage anyone who's read this far down to at least check them out. They're at SXSW this year. I wish they could get more exposure, because I feel like most people would like their music.

Um. I'll also plug my work's website, since we need more web traffic. http://www.socialsecuritylaw.com

I bought Nads off an infomercial. Remember how you could supposedly eat it? Yeah. No.

I have a book on the "fall list," as they used to say, but it doesn't have a fixed title yet. It's by me under my name. :) Yet another cheezy erotic romance.

As for Pedi Paws, I agree with the poster above -- they are Satan's plaything. Got one for my cat. I almost needed skin grafts.

To Maddie's parent, your daughter has what took the life of my best friend when she and I were in elementary school. She and I used to go to Irvine Park often. My heart goes out to all of you.

This thread is amazing! Now I know NOT to buy the pedi paw, and the Chuck Norris workout machine is back on my want list! Thanks everyone!

My feature film is on sale at http://www.TheCommuneMovie.com or you can rent it at Netflix. One of the only criticisms we get back is that my lead actress doesn't look 15, which I find to be an annoying, out of date viewpoint. Knew YOU would all get what 15 year old girl I was representing after seeing your comments about the youngest Jenner/Kardashian ladies! <3

NorCal Coupon Gal said...

I secretly LOVE infomercial items...but I only allow myself to buy them at Rite Aid if I have a coupon for them (and I get a discount with their Wellness card) :) My favorite so far? The bottle tops thingys for your soda cans...love them!

I'll take a second to plug my coupon website - it's my other guilty pleasure besides celebrity gossip :)

cj4 said...

Mango (and anyone else similarly concerned) - I can assure you this is very real and legitimate. God, how I wish it weren't true.

Nevertheless, I understand your concern.

My daughter was diagnosed on January 16. Once we got over the shock, our immediate thought was to form this foundation. Using a lawyer and all correct channels, the non-profit entity was formed, articles of incorporation filed with the State of California, and the 501c3 application submitted to the IRS. Unfortunately, the IRS is a lumbering beast and the approval takes time. There is no risk it will not be approved; it just has to wind its way through the bureaucracy. Our lawyer informed us that it will be approved within 2 to 6 months. All donations will be retroactively deductible and we will inform all donors when that approval has been given.

If you have any questions or concerns, please just let me know. In the meantime, please pray for my little girl.

sunnyside1213 said...

@cj4, sorry about your little girl. I am sending prayers your way.

On March 7 at 5:30pm PST I'm launching a half-hour weekly Internet radio show on BlogTalkRadio at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/myyukonlife called My Yukon Life.

Every Monday evening I'll be broadcasting live from my remote log cabin in the Yukon. The show will be similar in some ways to Chris in the Morning's radio show on Northern Exposure, except, my show is real.

Each week I'll be reporting on life in the Yukon with interviews of bush pilots, prospectors, dog mushers, local musicians, and other fascinating Yukoners.

Please visit www.MyYukonLife.com for more details.

And now for my plug. I'm overwhelmingly excited to say I've had my first book published. Like cupcakes? Like a bit of chick-lit? Check out TAKE THE CAKE at www.sandrawright.com.au

Lana, thank you so much for sharing!

Hi, all -- a bit late here. I do miss commenting on the blog, but it's a bit tough to do it regularly while in Southeast Asia.

I am a twenty-something girl from Boston currently in Sihanoukville, Cambodia, and am traveling Southeast Asia solo through May (or so). My site encourages women to go after their dreams and travel.

I also have lots of crazy stories to tell.

Hope you like it!

An amazing little indie movie: WHITE IRISH DRINKERS. Written and directed by John Gray, creator of Ghost Whisperer, set in 1975 Brooklyn. A coming of age story with some really unexpected twists in the plot and ending.

Opens March 25th in Boston, NYC and LA; check the website www.whiteirishdrinkersthemovie.com for other cities, dates and theaters (Landmark Chain is running it).

It was a Toronto Film Festival selection, won the Audience Award at Woodstock, was in Torino, Columbia, and Atlanta fests (Atlanta is coming up) and also a finalist for the Audience Genius Award at the Gotham Festival.

Stars Stephen Lang (you know, the bad guy colonel from AVATAR), Karen Allen (Indiana Jones) and Peter Reigert (everything), and introduces some incredible young newcomers: Leslie Murphy, Geoff Wigdor and especially Nick Thurston. Check out reviews and audience reactions on the website. Trailer is on iTunes.
