Welcome to the first of four parts of an analysis of every major film release of 2017. Following up on last year’s project, I’m back with a look at the films of 2017. And as usual, I will be breaking it down by quarters and then an overall review. The change this year, however, is… read more

The Events in Newtown, CT

Today is not the day for me to post a movie trailer or obsess over the minutia of a television show. I have opted to run the same image with this post that I ran for the Aurora, CO shootings because the only images I could find of the tragedy in Newtown, CT showed the… read more

Very little in this world leaves me speechless.  The events that happened in Aurora, Colorado last night is one of those times. As any regular readers of this blog know, I have been beyond excited for the release of The Dark Knight Rises.  To awake this morning to the news that someone had killed 12… read more

One of the joys when I travel is running into the insanely stupid things people do because they are completely incapable of using their brains. I did not intend to make The Joys of Travel a series, but things just keep getting my attention during this current trip to California. Upon reaching my hotel last… read more

The joys of travel just keep coming. The license plate you see above is what I happened to notice on my rental car today. I picked it up yesterday when I got to Irvine, and I just happened to glance down at the plate today and thought, “Huh … maybe California does its tags differently.”… read more

I have come to a conclusion: Man was not meant to travel.  Period. Currently I am in a hotel in Kansas City so I can board an 8 AM flight to Dallas, and then another flight to Irvine.  Once there I’ll be spending two weeks at the TechnoBuffalo offices to do some training and have… read more

Sometimes there are roadsigns that you simply won’t find in many places around the country. During a rare leisure trip this weekend, I finally decided to take a picture of a sign I see quite often around here that I doubt you’ll find in all that many locations. In case you’re wondering, that’s an Amish… read more


People that don’t take any responsibility when they’re sick drive me insane. I go to great lengths to keep myself from getting sick.  I am a copious hand washer, I will change aisles in a grocery store if I don’t like someone’s cough and I try my best just to stay healthy.  As someone who… read more

Apparently in an effort to make yourself healthier, it is possible to over do it to a certain point where you push yourself back into being uninsured. Over the years, before I lost all my weight, I was told repeatedly I couldn’t get health insurance until I got in shape.  Once I started working my… read more

Yesterday it was a tale of allergies, and today it is a story of airport delays. Can I just take a moment to say that traveling sucks? I am a rather meticulous planner when it comes to planning my flights.  My first choice is always to take a direct flight as I loathe connections.  Back… read more
