Tony Hawk Ride Giveaway: The Blackmail Saga

I noticed that a lot of you were looking for reviews of the Tony Hawk Ride. I loved it, my kids loved it and I predict that it will be impossible to find right before X-Mas.

Right now I’m giving away a X-Mas Tree. What good is a Christmas Tree without a gift to put under it?

Tony Hawk has a fantastic Gaming peripheral that’s just come on the market. The Tony Hawk Ride behaves like a skateboard would attached to your gaming system.

Activision kindly let me and the kids have a preview of  The Ride, and we loved it. In fact, I loved it so much I asked them if I could have one for a friend.

I listened as Brooke Shields talked about the early days of Tupperware Parties and the fact that men didn’t necessarily love the idea of their wives working. Tupperware is more than pop culture. Tupperware has always been about women joining together.

I understand that the mission of Tupperware the brand must be to be to fulfill the needs of it’s shareholders. I can’t shake the notion that the mission of Tupperware’s CEO was empowerment of women and girls, and that the money was just one component.
