You Put One Foot in Front of the Other

Stephanie and I bonded over our love of the old Rankin-Bass stop-motion holiday specials.  In Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Kris sings a little ditty to the Winter Warlock that helps to melt his icy heart. Gentle readers, I dare you not to have your own icy hearts melted with the joy of Otter […]

JibJab Jr. Books Let Your Kid Star in Their Own iPad Adventure (And You Can, Too!)

One of the staples of mall kiosks has always been the book dealer who–for the nominal sum of $20–will place your child’s name in a storybook.  From Christmas tales to birthday celebrations to fairytale reimaginings, the kindly salesteen would give your child the gift of a customize narrative. It seems the mall kiosk has given […]

Nike Pro Combat Uniforms and the War on Battlefield Fashion

As evidenced by the video above, you have to admire any college football program willing to adorn themselves in the flag of their state… or maybe you don’t. With the kickoff of college football season this past weekend comes part of a new tradition.  It’s not a new stadium or a new class of freshmen […]

As Comic-Con Approaches, A Suggestion for Nerd Ladies

Haley Cuoco, of notoriety as the girl on that TV show who hangs out with all the geeky guys but secretly pities them and their backwards ways, offers a Nerd PSA that readers attending Comic Con in the coming days should take to heart.  Look, I’m all for clever, geeky cosplay.  Just be safe doing so. Also, […]

Sunday Fun Day: Boxcar Elliott

The most fun I had as a child with a toy was the time we got a new hot water heater and I spent a week turning the leftover gigantic box into (1) a rocket, (2) a house, and (3) a cave.  Here’s hoping Elliott one day has the imagination and opportunity to make good uses of […]

I Cannot Possibly Travel to Portland, But Gosh Do I Want a Savor Cake

While working on another post today, I did a bit of hopping around Kickstarter.  If you ever want to be inspired by the creativity, inspiration, and audacity of the human mind, it’s as good as any museum to pop by. It was there that I stumbled upon a project raising money for a mobile food […]

Evolution of the Doctor Who Title Sequence is a Journey in Electronica and Time

Turns out I made Stephanie mad when watching this video.  Really mad.  In summary, it’s the Doctor Who theme played practically on loop for ten solid minutes.  If you’re not a Whovian, it’s probably not your cup of tea.  However, if you love progressive music, electronica, evolution, popular culture, sci-fi, special effects, or anything else, […]

Go West Brave Pioneers for In-N-Out Burger

Stephanie has put up with a lot of shameful things as my wife.  She’s endured madness at comic book stores to purchase Spider-Man Obama variant editions.  She’s brought me food while waiting in line for the latest Apple product.  She’s even baked me cookies in the shape of yetis.  That’s love, folks. It’s surprising, then, […]

Elliott Makes This Weird Pterodactyl Scream

The good news about this sound, gentle readers, is that it means he’s happy.

The Green Lantern Movie Trailer Just…Looks…Awful

There are not words, gentle readers.  When Entertainment Tonight showed off some brief clips online last week, I thought it must be the small screen size, bad resolution, and a host of other things that drained my enthusiasm for the move. Nope. Everything about this movie seems wrong.  What’s most disappointing about this is that […]
