3.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Solar, September 20, 2014
There is no question that when it has came down to firmly distinctive watches, Seiko has been one of the leaders at getting the job done. While other brands have recently lost out like Movado and Citizen Eco-Drive, for dealing with a younger generation of watch owners, they have lost a lot of credit, for delivering the right value, for the owner, and the prime purpose of the watch. This Seiko timepiece, brings back the contemporary style, of one of their vintage models. This time, making it solar, so it can get its illumination from a solar cell, rather than just running in a quartz battery. Yet, they sadly though didn't improve from the past design, by adding a second hand, and better water resistance. Still, if you are looking for a classy solar watch from Seiko, this one if definitely worth checking out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Seiko For Beginners, September 20, 2014
There is no question that when it has came down to watches for men, Seiko has definitely been one of the leaders in innovation, but keeping it classy after all of these years. They have done it with solar-powered watches, kinetic battery watches, and they have done it with regular automatic watches so well. But with automatic watches never losing their style, Seiko's Seiko 5 automatic collection has been a excellent watch series to go to, for beginners. This timepiece is a very elegant silver-tone with good illumination, and easy to read day and date window. My only gripe about the watch is that you cannot manually wind-up the watch by the crown, the way most automatic watches work nicely. I also wish that the watch could've had better resistance to match what Invicta and Casio had done with their timepieces. But still, if you are getting into Seiko for the first time, this would be a nice place to start.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classy Automatic, September 19, 2014
There is no question that when it has came down to watches, Invicta has been one of the leading brands that has shown class and distinctive appeal that has never gone out of style. But with other watch companies that have been trying very hard to deliver, they still have shown classic appeal in any design, and classic display. This classic Pro Diver timepiece is a beautiful and elegant automatic watch that handles very well, has a unidirectional bezel, good illumination from the hands and the accents of the watch, and fits just about anyone from the sporty, to the business casual. It has good water resistance and very simple date window. It is one of the hallmarks that Invicta has been known for, and a great beginners' timepiece for anyone getting into Invicta's watches for the very first time.

4.0 out of 5 stars His Cryng Game, September 19, 2014
This review is from: The Crying Game (MP3 Music)
There is no question that when it has Culture Club, Boy George has been the face of what made them a brilliant 80's band. But as the success had faded, so did his work and his abuse as well. But for him to really have that success after Culture Club, it has been more bittersweet than absolutely strong, in the way that others like George Michael had shown after leaving Wham. But nevertheless, with the very least he did have one good song after Culture Club. The Crying Game still remains one of the more-driven movie songs of the 90's that shows Boy George at heart and voice. It is a great song to listen to today, as it was back then. Now, with a possible reunion looming for Culture Club, this song is worth checking out.

3.0 out of 5 stars Solar Of The Future, September 18, 2014
There is no question that when it has came down watches, Seiko has been one brand not only worth checking out, but still hasn't lost its edge in making great timepieces that have kept with the times. While other brands like Citizen Eco-Drive and Bulova have had a bit of age, they still haven't been able to deliver with the younger era of watch wearers. But nevertheless, they have had some watches that are just good, but could've been better. This solar-powered watch is a simple solar movement, gets it energy through solar light, artificial light, easy to setup day and date windows, and good water resistance. Yet, what could've been improved in this watch is better illumination so the hands could glow in the dark, the 45 could've been removed and replaced with the numeral 9, which would make the watch easier to read, and a simpler clasp for opening and closing. Yet, it still is a good and classy watch worthwhile, and a fairly good watch for anyone who wants a solar timepiece, without all the hassle.

Dance With My Father (Radio Version) [Clean]
Offered by SONY Music Entertainment Downloads LLC.
Price: $0.69

4.0 out of 5 stars Danced With His Father, September 18, 2014
Hard to believe that it has nearly been a decade since the world lost one of the nicest soul singers, Luther Vandross. Yet, his body of work definitely belongs in the rankings of the great soul singers like Marvin Gaye, Barry White and Diana Ross. But what Luther was able to showcase, was a defiance in simplicity at writing songs, but also complimenting others by doing great renditions of their work as well. But one his last songs, Dance With My Father showed an absolute beautiful sense of loss, losing his dad very early on in life, but loving the memory of his father with him. The song is definitely a beautiful and soulful song that remains a gem to listen too. It is never possible to celebrate Luther's life and career, without mourning his loss. This is a great download for anyone who has been a lifelong Luther Vandross fan, and for anyone who had never really experienced his simplicity and voice.

3.0 out of 5 stars White Ceramic Solar, September 17, 2014
There is no question that when it has came down to watches, Citizen has honestly been one of those few watch companies that sincerely has made some excellent watches, but truthfully has lost their edge with great value, in favor of brands like Invicta, and Michael Kors. Citizen has lost their way in trying to deliver great watches, at trying to deliver more of a modern look with their Drive collection, which has lagged in great design, and lacked absolute value. This ceramic Stiletto timepiece handles fairly well, and a nice white bracelet, But there could've been a bit more in detail like illuminated hands, better water resistance, and a second hand which could've made it easier to tell time. Also, a date window could've been used to make it a bit classier. Overall, what you do get from Citizen is a nice, white watch, but more could've been added for the value.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Boyz, September 17, 2014
This review is from: Icon (Audio CD)
There is no question that these days, it has been hard to listen to real R&B music, whereas the case with so many artists being more into rap and hip hop music that is more about being trash that really is more about showing off and being offensive to others. But back in the 90's, there has been few male R&B groups that definitely have shown that through the test of time, in a era where voices really meant something from the heart. Boyz II Men really was one of the very few male R&B groups that delivered with the success and continuation of Motown music that was watered away in the 80's. They delivered not only great songs to call their own, but the heart of the matter is that the songs they have had still sound much better than the wasted music of today that really doesn't deliver in stride the way it used to. There have been so many hits records of Boyz II Men in the past, and now with the anticipation of their upcoming album Collide, many should go back and listen to what made Boyz II Men so remarkable in the first place.

Boyz II Men: Icon is simple reflection of what made the one time quartet so successful in the 90's in the first place. The collection cuts it down to the heart of the matter in their biggest songs from the 3 albums they had made back in the 90's, II, Cooleyhighharmony, and Evolution. The collection mainly is similar to their 2000 Legacy hits compilation which includes a lot of great songs like I'll Make Love To You, the classic Motownphilly, On Bended Knee, and 4 Seasons Of Loneliness. The songs have all been remastered nicely, but there could've been a bit more to offer here. There could've been songs that have been featured on this album that have been on other hits albums from Boyz II Men like One Sweet Day which they had done with Mariah Carey, Thank You and Thank You In Advance from Nathan Michael, Shawn, Wanya to just name a few.

All in all, what you do get from Icon: Boyz II Men is similar to what you have gotten from their Legacy hits record. It just doesn't actually separate itself from other compilations of the one-time quartet's legacy. Still, it is a firm hits album that does deliver nicely for any new Boyz II Men fans, but could've been more for hard core Boyz II Men fans, and remains too similar to past hits records. Still, this is a nice place to start if you have never heard a Boyz II Men album, this would be a good place to start.

4.0 out of 5 stars Soothe Away The Redness, September 17, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
There is no question that when it has came down to eye care, we really have to look for what is best when we have infections, and even harshness that haunts our eyes. Visine has known that feeling, which has made some very excellent eye care products that absolutely do the trick on our eyes, and helps us see better and feel better each and every time. Their Redness Reliever Eye Drops work absolutely well, not only value, but help to take the sting out when we have eye infections, need more moisture in our eyes, and provide a real soothing comfort for the value. I like them because they are worth the time and patience. A few drops and the redness absolutely goes away after awhile. It has worked wonders on my eyes, and a absolute recommendation for anyone that has allergies, an eye infection to soothe away the pain, or to improve your vision. I absolutely recommend theses Redness Reliever Eye Drops.

When it has came down to Citizen and the kind of watches they have absolutely delivered for the past several years, they have absolutely been both a hit and a miss. They haven't really brought out the best, and instead it lagged with their Drive 3.0 collection, by choosing to be a younger look, but losing the appeal of watch collectors and wearers. Yet, they are trying to appeal more to be like Michael Kors or Vince Camuto, which have shown to be more about style, not strength within the watch. This white ceramic timepiece handles well on the wrist, yet it is absolutely pain, lagging style and brilliance some of the other watches from Citizen have had. Not to mention it could've had more, illuminated hands, a date window, or a second hand. It has some good with the water resistance, but honestly it really doesn't catch the white eyes of the tiger. If you are looking for more of a watch in its movement and distinction, I absolutely recommend you look somewhere else. But if you want a watch for eye candy, this would be one to go to.
