Not a good morning for Evil

I was never a Something Positive fan, never even heard of it. My friend told me that he was/is a character in the strip and I checked it out, but there was far too much backstory to go over and...

Ahead, Geek Factor 10!

New TV + VGA/PC Audio Connection + Netflix Watch Instantly + Justice League: The New Frontier = ♥ The other picture shows it off better, but I realized there was some schmutz on the tv which I had to clean...

Mm-hm, I went there

And it was hilarious! Circumstances let me snag an unused ticket from Michael to see Margaret Cho last night. He’d originally mentioned it to me when he bought them and honestly, I’m not all that big a Cho fan, however...

Don’t need it, still want it.

I’m pretty impressed by this 36-piece set from My Pro Kitchen. At $280, it seems a bit steep, but if it’s truly professional quality, it’s worth it. About all that it suffers from is not being “pretty” but it looks...
