NAR Now Has the Digital Signature Software Benefit Going Global

Digital signature software is a critical asset to today’s highly mobile paperless agent. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) has been a long-term strategic partner with DocuSign for years and offers Realtors substantial discounts on their line of real estate digital signature products….

This isn’t a bad thing at all, especially if DocuSign has proven many, many times before that a digital signature is just as foolproof as a real one. Excellent job, NAR (National Association of Realtors). You’re advancing real estate best practices quite well.

What exactly is a broker?

I am not going to let the fact that no one seems to know what a real estate broker is, or what a real estate company does, dampen my enthusiasm for my new brokerage. I made the classic rookie mistake of putting “Broker/Owner” on my business cards….

————————————

So why is that a mistake then? Don’t feel bad, though. The concept of a real estate broker is a bit of a mystery. Are they agents? Are they property owners? Managers? What’s a broker?

Child 44 Wastes a Great Cast and Premise


Dear Lord, what happened here? Can one file criminal charges against a film that wastes this good a cast and premise? Child 44, directed by Daniel Espinosa and scripted by Richard Price, is based on Tom Rob Smith’s acclaimed novel, which itself was based on a series of shocking real-life … More »

——————————-

Take it from a critic, I guess. No internet legal plan in existence could save this film, apparently, from damnation, even if it does have Gary Oldman and Tom Hardy (a.k.a. Bane) playing top roles.

However…. I guess it’s all a matter of perspective.

Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 Sure Is Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2


Nobody was expecting much from Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, but did it have to be this unimaginative and lifeless? The original wasn’t exactly Sherlock, Jr. to begin with, but you might have thought that, given its success, Kevin James and Co. could try to take the second one into … More »

——————————-

Sequels, sadly, suffer from the worst challenge in the world — topping, or at the very least reinventing, the original. It’s not an easy feat. But for purposes of entertainment, I would hope we’d just enjoy the flick for what it is: a cheesy, ridiculous, and goofy story that’ll probably make all the kids laugh their heads off.

Letting the Force Flow Through the New Star Wars Trailer

Any droid, Jedi, clone, Sith Lord, rebel soldier or stormtrooper would cheer at the call of the “first transport is away,” faithfuls hopping into their Snowspeeders to tackle them some hefty AT-ATs with harpoons as another metaphorical Death Star looms in the distance about to cream the latest Avengers and “Superman V Batman” set trailers with a passion — and it’s all because of this new Star Wars trailer just released by Mr. J.J. Abrams, whetting our appetites for more galaxies far, far away, investing in some John Williams to bleed into our souls the way the dark side could only do so.

Why the New Star Wars Trailer Increases Your Midichlorian Count

 

I have to say this: I was a little kid again. All of it came back for me in ways I can’t even describe.

When the new trilogy came out with a boyish Vader, Liam Neeson, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and a weird talking Gungan, I was hyped up on this cosmic sugar, and that’s all well and good. This, though, took satisfaction to a whole new level. No toothaches, no candy coma — just a full belly, and perhaps a good beer to go with it. That’s what this trailer brought for me with the philosophy of Skywalker.

And here’s the best part: this new Star Wars trailer wasn’t even the official trailer! That means there most likely will be more to come!

If you notice, in this new Star Wars trailer “teaser,” we really don’t get to see anything as far as a plot at all, nothing to get us asking questions about “what’s going to happen,” gauging us and luring us like meat to Chewbacca on the forest moon of Endor. That’s what trailers typically do.

This, however, is not a trailer, per se. It’s a teaser. But for all intents and purposes, it’s a damn wicked teaser evoking those hairs standing on end and an X-wing flying up your nose with blasters blazing. Just from those few images, I can say this….

Based on the New Star Wars Trailer, This Won’t Disappoint at All

The same timeless quality. The gritty realism. What made Star Wars so eternal, but just with that flair Abrams is so well known for, kicking up the high-octane space opera action to the “nth” degree a million times over, without super-cheesing the CGI to death (although I don’t dislike breathtaking visuals at all)….

This will bring us all back to our roots. To our beginnings. And ironically enough, this new trilogy we’re going to see is not a ‘beginning’ of the entire mythos, but a continuation. And, yet, it’s the beginning of a new saga. The combination is divine. And we’re all in for a treat. It’s like Han Solo says — “Chewie…. We’re home.”

Kevin James Movies Have a Kevin James Problem


I’ve been watching Kevin James movies for years. But, like most of my fellow pointy-head critics, I haven’t liked most of them. Which perplexes and troubles me, because I’m a fan of dumb comedy. (I made my friends take me to Joe Dirt on my birthday many years ago.) More »

——————————–

Call me crazy, but these are the types of movies I just won’t take seriously at all! So why not just have some fun with it? Kevin James is funny — as long as you accept the brand of humor. If you flat-out don’t and go in with the immediate conception that this is just going to be flat-out ‘dumb,’ flat-out needing a lawyer to help you get your money back from the theater, then you’ll flat-out sabotage yourself from just enjoying a cheesy, ridiculous and weird movie about a guy with the worst name ever in existence!

Just enjoy the ludicrousness of it. That’s what it was meant to be.

Can I Get Workers’ Comp For a Heart Attack?

Americans work too hard. Because of long hours and work stress, many of us are working ourselves towards a heart attack. If you get a heart attack, either at work or at home, can you get workers’ compensation?……

—————————–

It’s an interesting question, one worth looking into with a lawyer. At least for starters, you can check the link and see if that’s a possibility when it involves workers’ comp. I guess it all depends on a number of factors….

Georgia Legalizes Medical Marijuana: A Roundup

Just in time for 4/20, Georgia became the 24th state to legalize cannabis for medicinal use. But don’t go investing in Funyuns stock just yet — Georgia’s law is fairly restrictive when it comes to what a medical marijuana patient can possess……

———————————

There are so many misconceptions as to what constitutes “medical marijuana legalization.” Although the concept of medical marijuana and states jumping on the bandwagon to legalize it, you just might want to investigate this before you end up having to approach an attorney about being asked to offer a hair follicle test for drugs. Until then, enjoy the Georgia peaches instead!
