New Domain Extensions Debuting Across Theater Screens

.film and .movie domain extensions

Last week’s date night found my wife and I venturing off to the movies sans kids to view ‘Won’t You Be My Neighbor’ — a movie that examines the life and legacy of Fred Rogers, the beloved host of the popular children’s TV show “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.”

Seeing we don’t watch much TV around the House of Brown, I didn’t realize ‘Won’t You Be My Neighbor’ was a movie until my wife mentioned it to me after we stumbled upon a Behind-The-Scenes Special chronicling the journey of Rogers.

A few weeks passed and up popped an date night invite to the movies. As we waited for ‘Won’t You Be My Neighbor’ to begin, a number of movie trailers played one after the next.

As they played, I noticed it had been years since I had been in a movie theater. It was interesting to discover how movies of today are being advertised in their use of #hashtags and social media usage — advertising Twitter, Instagram and Facebook handles.

Of course, there were a number of movies advertising matching or near matching .com domains that included movie title and the word “movie” in it.

Being I love and am held captive by domains more than the average person, two distinct movies stood out to many out of likely 10-15 or so that rolled this night: ‘The King’ and ‘Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot’.

The Austin Heat, Domains, and Annual Memorial Day CapTexTri

Can’t believe it’s been one year since last Memorial Day and giving for the honorable men and women graciously deciding to serve and protect the United States of America, many having lost their lives. 🇺🇸

My family and I kicked off Memorial Day quite early than many folks — literally our day started just before 6 am CST.

As we did last year, we made our way down to Auditorium Shores to support our friend and spiritual daughter as she participated, competed, and placed 3rd in the Sprint Course for her age group at the Annual Memorial Day CapTexTri. 

A Festival “Keeping Austin Cool”

I’ve lived in Austin for the past 13 years and counting.

I originally lived in Pflugerville, a suburb just north of Austin, for 4-5 years when I first arrived. However, my wife and I (and our growing family) have called Northwest Austin our home base for the last 9 or so years.

Austin has grown quite a bit over this time and still growing. In fact, many hope that folks will stop moving to Austin to curb soaring real estate prices and reduce the economic constraints of congested traffic, to put it lightly.

Nevertheless, it’s been a fun experience watching Austin burst at its seams in exponential growth.

One of the areas of growth is watching and partaking of the many festivals Austin has birthed over the last decade or more.

Domains Bringing Summer Fun in the Sun on Lake Travis

It’s heating up in Texas, and things are getting quite active around Volente Beach.

As I work the days away, I often see party buses to and fro with intense beach laughter and frolicking.

There’s a bit more loud music playing throughout the day than the norm, and the marina island is always packed with a party barge or two in full effect.

Truth be told, it’s quite a refreshing view to experience new ownership spicing things up around the sleepy village of Volente.

Memorial Day at Austin’s CapTexTri

Austin is always bumping and jumping with a host of events.

And don’t think that it being Memorial Day weekend would lessen the list of events around the great ATX.

Speaking of Memorial Day, I hope you and yours remember those who greatly sacrificed their lives so that we could enjoy the freedom to live in a free land.

I’m grateful for the many family members, friends, co-workers, and neighbors who answered the call to serve their country and fellow man.

We didn’t do much per se, but we did support friends participating in Austin’s CapTex Triathlon held at Auditorium Shores in Downtown Austin across from what was once RunTex.com (now defunct).

Knocking Stains Out of the Park

MLB Laundry Detergent And Stain Remover

Welcome back!  As I was in search of a sporting event the night we arrived home from the hospital after the arrival of our beautiful baby girl, I encountered MLB game.

Not much of a baseball fan outside of the Texas Rangers, I decided to let channel surfing rest and watch a few innings.

As innings progressed, I took notice of a billboard behind home plate.  

Although present, it wan’t the normal MLB team domain name that was on display as the main attraction and that caught my eye.

GoDaddy gets Super Bowl right with PuppetsByGwen.com!

GoDaddy has long been known for their raunchy and unadulterated Super Bowl commercials to say the least. Just run a search for previous Godaddy Super Bowl commercials and you’ll see.

But this year, Godaddy did something that even I didn’t expect for GoDaddy to do: make a tasteful, value-add commercial.

Of course the Godaddy spray tan commercial which I personally don’t think people, especially small business owners, will understand that GoDaddy offers domain names, website hosting, and website design and builder services for small businesses.

In my humble opinion, this commercial makes GoDaddy appear to offer a tanning spray service and not a technology business offering domain names, email and web hosting, website design, and SEO services.
