Free Screening of the Guardians of the Galaxy Movie, plus Free Poster!

After seeing the Guardians of the Galaxy movie trailer at the movie theater, I was tipped off about a free preview screening at some Imax movie theatres.  Marvel and Disney are working hard to promote this so they are showing 17 minutes of preview footage of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie (GOTG).  According to Disney/Marvel Studios, "Fans who attend this sneak peek will also receive a limited-edition collectible Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy IMAX poster!"  Tickets are available in IMAX theatres in many North American cities. Just go to to sign up for the preview.

On a personal note, I've been reading comics since I was a kid and I'm really amazed at how Marvel Studios (Disney) have been able to make good movies out of lesser-known comic book characters such as Thor and the Avengers.  Hopefully the GOTG movie continues this trend.  T
hey are definitely better at making comic book movies than DC Comics.

Free Sample of Seattle’s Best Coffee on Facebook

Seattle’s Best Coffee® (SBC) is giving away free coffee samples on Facebook. Just go to their facebook page  and click on the "Free Sample Click Here" button. The sample size is 0.71 ounces and they're giving out the samples until April 30, 2014 or after 150,000 samples have been claimed, whichever occurs first.

It's great to see them giving out these free samples again. In my area, McDonald's and Starbucks are the big coffee brands, and I know that SBC is owned by Starbucks, but it's still nice to try a different coffee product.
