Cheap Sunglasses

I got a black eye a few months ago. I covered it up with a pair of cheap sunglasses when I had to work. My black eye eventually went away, but the cheap sunglasses became part of my work wardrobe. They are my trademark now. My coworkers took notice and they started bringing me pairs of cheap sunglasses from various companies. They were all free glasses given away by various businesses to promote themselves. I have specs from Svedka, Smirnoff, Corona, Lagunitas, Jack Daniels, and Lyft to name a few. It was a collection that was never wanted but suddenly accumulated. It’s too late to turn back now. It’s weird because I don’t normally wear sunglasses outside of work. I’ll only rock a pair if I’m going to the beach or park for the day. I don’t wear them in my normal street attire. But they are on my face when I clock in and come off when I clock out. Everyone should have a pair of cheap sunglasses. Just make sure that they have UV protection. Any pair of sunglasses is completely worthless if they don’t block the sun. And never pay for a pair of designer sunglasses when you can raid the lost & found.

Harry Potter Glasses

It’s impossible to picture Harry Potter in your head without his trademark glasses. You’re thinking of Danielle Radcliffe if you think you can and Daniel Radcliffe is not Harry Potter. There’s a difference. Anyway, those circular specs are a huge part of Harry Potter’s image. It makes him seem more relatable and less like a powerful wizard. But that got me to thinking that those glasses are proof that he’s not that great of a wizard. I mean Hermione used magic to change her teeth. We know that they can regrow and mend broken bones with Skele-Gro. You’re telling me there’s not a spell to cure astigmatism? They don’t have magical contacts? Somebody ask J.K. Rowling for me if you get the chance. Thanks.

A Toast

A toast is when you raise your glasses in commemoration of something. You’ll clink your drinking in order to celebrate a special occasion or event. Often times someone will give a short speech in honor of a graduation, promotion, birthday, anniversary, or any old excuse to drink and be merry. You don’t need a reason to get drunk, but it’s nice to have one. Drinking should be a social event and a toast can confirm the comradery. You always have something in your life to be thankful for. Drink to that.

The Best Way to Watch a 3-D Movies

3-D movies are the best way to watch a movie, but only if it’s done right. The biggest problem with 3-D films is that the three dimensions become commonplace. It becomes mundane, it becomes boring. You need something to break up the spectacle, or the spectacle loses all meaning.  The best way to watch a 3-D movie is to take the glasses off. Seriously. Take them off whenever there is a lot of dialog or whenever the camera remains stationary. Let your eyes take a break. Then put your glasses back on when the action picks up. Suddenly the movie pops. Suddenly the 3-D means something. It literally adds depth to the film. The action becomes more immersive and more intense. It draws you into the film if it’s done right. It distracts you heavily if it’s done wrong. 3-D might be a marketing ploy, but its sticking around, so you better get used to it. But remember that those glasses aren’t required.
