Hail Mario talks about how Mario Kart 8 is, perhaps, one of the best video games ever made. I've told this story countless times already, but, well… I'm just going to link to it. Every day, with rare, rare exception my third year of college, Bill, Cazi, Matt, and I and sometimes Mike or another […]

The Shawshank Residuals says: Twenty years after it was released and flopped, "The Shawshank Redemption" has turned in a money machine. … "Shawshank" was an underwhelming box-office performer when it hit theaters 20 years ago this September, but then it began to redeem itself, finding an audience on home video and later becoming a fixture […]
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… […]
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 […]
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?

Great game: Threes! on the App Store on iTunes. $199 only, too. iPhone and iPad.
I just canceled our "two screens at a time streaming only" Netflix account. Even at only $7.99/month, it wasn't worth it. Netflix seems to have fewer and fewer of the movies we want to watch, and Amazon Prime's streaming may actually be pretty good soon. But mostly, we don't really stream movies much anymore. At […]
I'm considering picking up Hatching Twitter for my Kindle but I wonder if it's worth $12. Or, to put it more accurately, is it worth my time? I have a bunch of books on my Kindle that I'm actively in the middle of reading… if we extend "actively" to mean "for an hour every few […]
With ribbons! I might play once in the snow (in the Ice Bowl). Twice would be a stretch…
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 […]
An important half, mind you!
