Calvin Klein’s New Campaign My Calvins Featuring Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber my calvins Calvin Klein

If you haven’t seen or heard about the new Calvin Klein campaign “#mycalvins” featuring an almost naked Justin Bieber, no worries because I have attached the photos in this post. I happen to think the campaign is awesome. However, since launching, the campaign has been very controversial. I think Calvin Klein knew this campaign would but not for the reasons that they intended.
At first, everyone was in shock looking at barely clothed Justin Bieber rocking Calvin Klein underwear. Are people old enough to remember when Mark Wahlberg was the face of Calvin Klein? Justin is today what Mark was back then. Mark’s wife wasn’t amused by the comparison. Almost immediately after the campaign launched, allegations came out that the photos were photoshopped. BreatheHeavy claimed to have untouched photos which featured a Justin Bieber whose muscles and pecs were much smaller than the photos featured in the ads. Also, noticeably smaller was Justin’s package.

Most Under Utilized App: Dropbox

In this section, we will regularly sharing apps we find extremely useful or fun (or both?). This time we are covering Dropbox

I’m always surprised at how many people aren’t taking advantage of cloud services. Ever run out of memory on your phone? I know I used to. Now I have a 64gb iPhone 6 so storage isn’t really an issue but it’s also because I’m saving my photos to the cloud. I currently have a few thousand photos on my camera roll. I would consider myself a bit of a digital hoarder. I save almost all the pictures that I take.

Whether it’s a family photo or a silly candid shot of my babe. It’s my photo and I have an attachment to it. I don’t want to delete it just to make more room.

This is where Dropbox comes in because

Twitter To Launch Video This Year

Twitter quietly announced plans back in November to launch a video service. Reports were circulating around the Internet this weekend regarding more details about Twitter’s plans to launch this secret video service later this year. The new information comes from video.twitter.com which include Terms of Service and an FAQ. The terms give details such as a limit of 10 minutes per video but no file size limit. This will allow people to share high quality videos.

Posting videos directly on Twitter should have benefits because people will get access to better features like analytics and the way they’re displayed. YouTube videos are embedded decently on Twitter now but I could see them fazing YouTube out in place of their own service. I could see Twitter build a seamless experience for their own video service. At launch, the video service

Calling all TV junkies!

red band society

If you’re anything like me, you’ve got your TV shows that you watch religiously. For me, that’s shows like Survivor, Dance Moms, and The MTV Challenges. But I have so many shows that I like to watch, thank goodness for DVR, huh? When I have a day off, I binge watch a bunch of TV!

Well, Fox Network came out with a bunch of new shows for their Fall line up this year, and one that caught my attention was a show called “Red Band Society”. If you’ve read/seen “It’s Kind of a Funny Story”, it’s similar to that.

“Red Band Society is about a group of teens in the pediatric ward of Los Angeles’ Ocean Park Hospital find comfort in one another. Mexican-born Jordi, 16, crossed the border for treatment. His roommate, Leo, at the hospital for over a year, is starting to lose his way. Cystic fibrosis prompts Leo’s best friend, Dash, to live each day as though it’s his last. Emma, Leo’s off-and-on girlfriend, has an eating disorder. Kara is a cheerleader with a heart problem, and her roommate, Charlie, is 12 and in a coma. Dr. Jack McAndrew and Nurses Jackson and Dobler make up their medical team.”

The first episode premiered on September 17, 2014.

Red Band Society has quickly become
