Fall TV Lineup – Thursday Night

This is the space where I should be talking about My Name is Earl, The Office, Grey’s Anatomy, and CSI. Thanks to our wonderful power company I am not. You see, my power was out for nearly 3 hours beginning at 6:30 pm today. That means no shows for me to watch today. I’ll have […]

Swag Attack: The Legend of Zelda Phantom Hourglass

Nintendo sent over the new Zelda game, Phantom Hourglass, and it had a nifty bit of swag to accompany it. This beautiful hourglass emblazoned with the game’s logo on top and bottom. The premise behind it is that it only takes 10 minutes to see why the game is so amazing. I’ll be the judge […]

Fall TV Lineup – Wednesday Night

Wednesday night is a big TV night for us with Criminal Minds, CSI: NY, and the new Grey’s Anatomy spin-off, Private Practice. This season of Criminal Minds is going to be a bit different with Jason Gideon (Mandy Patinkin) leaving the show and Hotch’s future up in the air. They already lost a main character […]

Fall TV Lineup – Tuesday Night

The only show that I am currently checking out this season that airs on Tuesday nights is House. I got to the party late with House so I’ve missed a lot of the back story on why he’s such an ass, but I do enjoy the relational dynamics that the show brings to the table. […]

Russian Mother Births 17 Pound Baby

I can’t even imagine what that poor woman must have endured. MSN carried the article and posted this picture with it: The baby on the right is probably thinking “Oh god, don’t eat me.”

Science 101: Gasoline + Open Flames

I’m not going to pretend that it is common sense that open flames and gasoline don’t mix, because there is some fool out there that thinks the two go together quite well. I happened to see that particular fool on my way back from lunch today… gas can in his right hand and a lit […]


LEGO Ultimate Collectors Millennium Falcon

I like LEGOs. I always have. My brother and I had a disproportionately large number of LEGO sets growing up. They are mostly long gone now, aside from a few Star Wars sets I picked up at LEGOLAND in California a few years back. There is just something innately fun about putting LEGO sets together. […]

A Silent Vacuum?

As the clock ticks past 1 in the morning, I am winding down the daily ritual of picking up the house. You see I have a 3yr old that more closely resembles a hurricane than an actual child sometimes. From room to room he goes, leaving a path of destruction in his wake. As I […]

First Impressions: Halo 3

Despite running what I would consider a fairly successful gaming website, I was kind overlooked by the powers that be for a copy of Halo 3 before launch. That said, my wife picked up a copy of Halo 3 for us today at Costco for $49.99, not a bad price by the way. After putting […]

Fall TV Lineup – Monday Night

So despite the fact that last night was one of the bigger events in the gaming industry, I hung at the house with the family and had some pizza. After the kids went to bed, we checked out a few of the new shows starting up this fall. You see, the networks have finally realized […]
