The other day I talked about how Apple fans were obsessing over some info on cargo containers.  I thought, “Okay, one off oddity, whatever.” Yeah… I was wrong. Two more stories have popped up since then that make me wonder how you can obsess this much over a company and its products.  On May 29th… read more

Ikea

I have never purchased from Ikea before, but after several mentions on collectibles sites, I decided to give their Detolf display cases a go. I’ve been needing something to display my collectible statues in, and these really seemed to be exactly what I was looking for. $60 for a four-sided glass display? How could I… read more

As long time readers of my blog will attest, I despise Rachael Ray. I have even likened her to “Satan’s evil servant“, she annoys me just that much. However, and this may cause the Earth to be torn asunder… I think this criticism of her is just ludicrous. In a recent online ad for Dunkin’… read more

Apparently the studios in Hollywood have suddenly realized the 1980’s were twenty years ago, and it’s time to remake every movie under the sun. The latest reports I’m hearing have us seeing remakes of the 1980 version of Flash Gordon, 1984 invasion thriller Red Dawn and the original Highlander movie from 1986. Why? None of… read more


When I went to see Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, there was something that actually bothered me more than the movie: The wait time for it to start. I have not been to the movies since last July, when I had the misfortune of seeing Transformers, and I was unaware that… read more

After much personal debate, I made it out to the theater to Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The debate was based on the fact I loved the first three movies, and I really didn’t want to see a stinker of a film taint my love of the series as a whole.… read more

You know, I love my iPods, and it is true I have watched each announcement with great interest, but there is a point where you want to tell people to just get a grip. While cruising my RSS feeds today, I stumbled across this post on 9to5Mac that just made me want to run out… read more

You know, I was just thinking, “Hey, self, you know that border guards have way too much free time on their hands! They need something to do that will impossibly clog up people crossing the border into some countries in anything even remotely resembling a reasonable time!” Oh… thank you, G8! The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement… read more


Just the other day I spoke about how a social network, Faceparty, had decided it was best to delete people over 36-years-old because they may be sex offenders.  Well, this made me think of another situation I have been running into a lot more lately: ageism in video games. I have spoken before about some… read more

I’ve waited 30 years for a better Millennium Falcon toy. The picture to the right shows what’ I’ve been waiting for. See, the one they released in 1978 was “okay”, but it always seemed lacking. It was stubby looking, the guns on top didn’t sit right, it had no bottom guns… that really bothered me… read more

Ever heard of Faceparty? I know I haven’t and I even work for the largest blog in the world for social networking, and recent news about how they are battling sexual predators is the first I’ve ever heard of them. Melissa Gira Grant of Valleywag, the gossip rag of the Web 2.0 crowd, wrote this… read more

The other night I was watching the ABC 7 New York News, and heard about a business I had no clue existed, Insomnia Cookies. The premise is simple in that you can have cookies delivered until late at night (general cut-off is 12:00 AM to 2:30 AM, depending on location), satisfying those late night cravings.… read more
