Marketplace Reviews

(Check out the comments below for each day’s selection, feel free to add your own pick!)
How many of you invent in your head your very own marketplace? Ours has cobbled stones, wide streets, but still narrow enough to say hello without a bullhorn, sun shining above, but softly, not too warm mind you, and carts and stalls made of the best and polished wood, exotic soft fabrics and the best of technology of course.

But the marketplace in our mind also has stations where you can go describe the movie you want to see and even though you don’t know who made it, when it was made, who the actors were or the title, the person at the stand will not only magically tell you the name but also where to buy it. (They would always have copies of a certain Ray Bradbury film where the sun comes out for but a moment…).

Here at HolyGoodNight, we welcome you to post your search for both things long forgotten and new, in the hopes that a reader will know not only what you are talking about, but also, where and how to find it.

  1. The incredible Ray Bradbury story available on DVD:  “All Summer in a Day”

    Maybe we’re just deficient, but it took a longggg time to find that film.  Imagine trying to find it when the last time you saw it was in elementary school and thought it featured the planet Saturn.

  2. “The Flying Umbrella Fix”: now maybe most of you don’t go near a beach or don’t use an umbrella, but even if you don’t, and you do go to the beach, chances are a flying beach umbrella has come close to hitting you, a night or two ago, I came across the site of the inventor of a device to stop flying beach umbrellas from flying, really, no lie, it exists.

    Check it out…no, we get no referral fees and do not have stock in the company!

  3. Very cool. Many years of researching and searching has lead us to:

    SuperSmile

    Right now it’s available on-line and/or at certain Bath & Body Works, you must do the search yourself, if you beg us nicely we will do it for you, but we need your zipcode

    Seriously, this looks good and again, and some day we will not need to repeat this and you will simply believe us: we don’t publicly endorse (i.e. get money) own stock or otherwise are affilitiated with the product, if the day comes when we are, simple: we will tell you

    check it out, let us know, perhaps some of you too have been in the search of just the “right” dental product that is affordable….c’mon, how many of us have dental insurance anyway, please……….isn’t that like having stock in Google?
