Halt and Catch Fire

Looking forward to this: And the background info on the name, of course…

REM Unplugged from Record Store Day on Vimeo. I oarked just as the store opened, walked in just after the last person who had waited in line entered, and snagged the only copy of R.E.M. Unplugged that the store had. I was back in my car and on the road again within three minutes. So… […]

Silicon Valley TV Show

HIMYM Series Finale

Initially I was surprised by the ending. After about two minutes, I came to the conclusion agh which I think I'll remain: the ending was perfect. Though HIMYM suffered from some average seasons (or episodes, at least), it was a great nine-year run and one of my favorite TV series of all time. And the […]

Putt-Putt Perfection

Elite Teams And Depth (Pittsburgh Isn't Good) Soooo…at some point someone in Pittsburgh is going to say "Given that Crosby and Malkin were there when he got here, what HAS Ray Shero done to make the team better?" right? Pittsburgh's third and fourth lines were a disaster last year, their first without Jordan Staal (another […]


Great game: Threes! on the App Store on iTunes. $199 only, too. iPhone and iPad.

Canceled My Netflix

I just canceled our "two screens at a time streaming only" Netflix account. Even at only $7.99/month, it wasn't worth it.

Disc Golf in the Snow

With ribbons! I might play once in the snow (in the Ice Bowl). Twice would be a stretch…

Garmin Forerunner 620

I just got an email that Garmin was sending me a 620 watch (I asked for orange and white) to replace my 610. The 610 they sent in exchange for a review that I wrote long ago, but they made no mention of reviewing the 620. It's no secret that I haven't been running much […]

Technique is Half the Battle

An important half, mind you!

Breaking Bad Series Finale

Wow. (I intended to write a lot more, but… uh, nothing I could write would do it justice. I'm just glad that I stuck with the show during some of the duller parts.)
