The Black Pearl

So, it’s been a while, how’ve you been? I took a much-needed hiatus from food blogging for a bit while I sorted a few things out, but there will be more about that later. I also had to take a...

news: Singer wins ‘American Idol’

I neither subscribe to Yahoo! updates nor do I follow American Idol, so I was a little dubious when I saw this tweet and others: Yahoo! says “Singer wins American Idol” …….I don’t watch, but aren’t they usually singers? —...

in DC: Dark Knight Tumbler Tour

I confess1 that for all my love of comic books, I am not really all that into the latest incarnation of Batman movies, The Dark Knight trilogy. I like Batman, but something about the movies just doesn’t do it for...

accessories: “Man Candles”

I love my Yankee Candles, but this latest limited-time collection from them is causing more than a few eyerolls around the web. At first I thought they just released 4 new scents and that others were nicknaming them as such,...

ads: target…ed

Peeking over a co-worker’s shoulder as we were discussing the comeback of colored denim this year, I noticed that the “Top Picks” in Target’s Women’s jeans section had a fairly appropriate sponsor. 🙄

twitter: get out there with a real girl

I realize that spammers have to cast a wide net, but I think this one, replying to a completely–of course–non-related tweet, hilariously misses every single mark.1 I’m not sure how one connects talking about hazing at FAMU to that, but...

comics: Saving the Day

Nothing quite like free comic books, right? Not just on Free Comic Book Day–coming up this Saturday, in fact–but the comics you could get by sending in UPC labels, or packaged in breakfast cereal, or handed out at school or...

video: Star Trek TOS overload

I frequently joke that the HDTV my spouse bought for my last birthday is too large, to which he responds that he could have gone even bigger–that last part isn’t really part of the joke, he seriously contemplated buying one...

video: ‘Planet Earth’ narrated by kids

I love me some nature documentaries, be they heartwarming or heartbreaking and truth be told, it was catching sight of “Planet Earth” on Blu-Ray in an electronics store that really got me wanting to buy an HDTV. I’m also a...

LLAP: Nichols/Obama

I’ve been a bit paralyzed by writer’s block for a while, and while this post doesn’t have a lot of content, it was too good not to be shared. Last night on twitter, Nichelle Nichols sent out a few cryptic...

beer: Guinness’ ad and Coors’ fad?

Ah, the things you see while watching live television. I’d sort of forgotten about St. Patrick’s Day this weekend since I’m not really a bar crawler and while there may be some Irish blood in me, it’s fairly well diluted....

ads: Liquid-Plumr Double Impact

I haven’t seen this on TV yet, but it’s on their official YouTube channel so this at least appears to be a real ad that they’re hoping goes viral. Sadly I’ve only ever had to use Liquid-Plumr once in my...
