It’s been three years since Pet Shop Boys brought us something new and the forthcoming album “Elysium” is proving to be well worth the wait.

ads: Disney Mobile Magic

While I’m more #TeamMaleficent than #TeamGrimhilde1 this ad for the Verizon Disney Mobile Magic app gave me a smile this morning. It isn’t just the modern “Find me Snow White!” angle, but the father portraying the typical mobile device geek...

Jacques Pépin: How to Mark a Grilled Steak

One of the many things that apartment-dwelling cooks have to live with is that we often can’t grill whenever we’d like. Some of us may have access to communal grills–as I currently do now. However, ours isn’t always well-maintained so...

video: To Boldly Redux…

I’m pretty much against TV series remakes, and now thanks to Dallas, I’m nearing a position of being against continuations, too. However, I am not against remade and re-imagined title sequences–for both TV shows and movies. If Kirk and the...

news: message from The Doctor?

I’m not normally inclined to read the Washington Times’ sports page–or any sports page, for that matter. But while riding into work on the this morning, I glanced across the aisle and noticed a fellow commuter’s newspaper. To anyone else,...

video: O… M… M?

It seems that our nation is constantly giving me reason to whip out one of my favorite scenes from The Simpsons. One Million Moms has decided to rally their members against J. C. Penney… again.

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...

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...

the Lorax: I speak for the SUVs?!

I don’t use the horrible hyperbole of “raping my childhood”1 that too may are willing to throw at just about anything that doesn’t respect their very specific and unwavering nostalgic vision of something they loved when they were a kid....

video: Choccy Philly?

I am not a chocaholic. I like chocolate, but confronted with a Golden Ticket and the resulting lifetime supply of chocolate, I’d still be a little, “Eh.” My partner, however, is and even he balked at Philadelphia’s newest product which...

video: Straight Outta Dunwoody

Living in DC, it’s impossible not to be asked where I’m from. Of course, I tell people “I’m from Atlanta… well just outside Atlanta… y’know, in the suburbs. … Dunwoody, all right? I’m from Dunwoody!”1 And anyone that knows the...

Volkswagen returns to a Star Wars theme for their 2012 Super Bowl commercial. Remember “The Force” from last year that went viral? For Super Bowl XLVI, they return to that galaxy far, far away with a teaser for their 2012...
