Yet another television ad to toss on the ever-growing pile of ones I hate.  The newest one to join the ranks is the Obama Presidential Coin Collection.  This has nothing to do with politics, but just being plain shady on the parts of the sellers, and how gullible the consumer can be. If you haven’t… read more

The National Film Preservation Board has made their annual announcement of which films are being added to The National Film Registry. For those unfamiliar with the project, each year up to 25 films are selected for preservation in the Library of Congress.  Each film must be at least 10-years-old, they do not have to be… read more

Poor, Oprah. She just can’t pick a book, can she? Remember when Oprah got duped by James Frey, author of A Million Little Pieces?  She was steadfastly behind this book about a man’s trials with drug addiction, even making it one of her precious “Oprah’s Book Club” choices.  Then it came to light that he… read more

Is it April yet? One of my guiltiest television pleasures is the Discovery Channel series Deadliest Catch.  As I’ve discussed before, I have no clue what really drives these men to do this insanely dangerous job, but to be honest I don’t really care as they keep doing it.  And the season 5 premiere in… read more

Merry Christmas

Considering my recent rant against Christmas sweaters, some how this story from Pete Cashmore at Mashable seems like some sort of cosmic justice against me.  Office Max has jumped on the Christmas sweater bandwagon and produced a web site called My Christmas Sweater that will let you make as an atrocious Christmas sweater as you’d… read more

What in the world is wrong with Fred Phelps? For those unfamiliar with Phelps, he is the head of the Westboro Baptist Church from Topeka, KS.  They are best known for their protests at the funerals of soldiers saying that all their deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq are the fault of the United States acceptance… read more

Festivus Time Again

Every December 23rd brings the most magical of holidays… Festivus! As I always say when I discuss this, I never thought much of the television series Seinfeld, but I do thank them for giving us the concept of Festivus.  Sure I don’t think any of us need to go through the “Airing of Grievances” (that’s… read more


The economy is hitting every one hard, and police budgets are not immune either. In the past 24 hours I have heard two odd stories of how different police departments are handling budget problems.  The first came from the infamous “M”, famed around this blog for the World’s Longest Dark Knight Review, who is currently… read more

Robert Carlyle

According to a quote on IO9 today, Russell T. Davies, the head of the past four seasons of Doctor Who, said the following about Robert Carlyle joining the newest Stargate series, Stargate Universe: Stargate, can you believe it? That was a surprise. Hasn’t his agent watched it? All I could say upon reading this was… read more

I can’t take it any more… Christmas Sweaters must be banned. While I am certainly no slave to fashion, I can be a bit harsh in sizing up other people that make really atrocious fashion choices.  Like my hatred of Crocs, I think I hate Christmas sweaters with an even larger passion.  The main reason… read more
