Seven Days, Seven Black and White Photos

Last year one of my friends tagged me in one of these Facebook challenges where I was supposed to, for seven days, post a new black and white photo every day. The photos were to contain no people and provide no explanation. One of these photos popped up in my timeline the other day and brought back some good memories. Here they are. Seven Days, Seven Black and White Photos. No people and no explanation. … Continue reading

No Shave November 2018

Once again this year I am participating in No-Shave November. According to No-Shave.org, “No-Shave November is a month-long journey during which participants forgo shaving and grooming in order to evoke conversation and raise cancer awareness. Learn more about how you can get involved and start getting hairy!” Some people participate in Movember instead. The goal there is to grow a mustache during the month to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer and other male … Continue reading

Halloween (2018) Review

Halloween (2018)

NOTE: This review was originally posted at ScareTissue.com the morning after I got to see a preview screening. Halloween (2018) was directed by David Gordon Green and was written by Green, Jeff Fradley, and Danny McBride. It is the eleventh installment in the Halloween film series, and a direct sequel to the original 1978 film. It completely retcons the series as it ignores all other films in the franchise after the original. SPOILER ALERT: This review will talk openly about some plot points … Continue reading

The 10 Day Movie Challenge

MegaForce Hunter

I’m sure you’ve seen these things before floating around Facebook. Some sort of a ‘challenge’ where you’re supposed to do something every day and then tag someone else to do to the same. Well, I got tagged on one and have been moving right along. Here was the challenge: 10 day movie challenge: You are to post just an image, no explanation, from 10 movies that had an impact on you. 10 movies, 10 images, … Continue reading

Just Do It – My Favorites

Just Do It - Timberlake

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’re familiar with the hoopla around Colin Kaepernick and his latest Nike ‘Just Do It’ campaign. I won’t bother going into it here but if you don’t feel free to hit up the Google machine. That said, the memes that this backlash has lead to have been pure gold. Here are some of my favorites.

The Holy Trilogies: The Porkins Connection

Jek Porkins

I’ll start this on sort of a random note. I’ve always been a fan of Jek Porkins. Who doesn’t love a chubby star pilot? Anyhow, from the ‘I can’t believe I didn’t know this’ file comes today’s entry. If you know me even a little but you know that I’m a HUGE Star Wars fan. You probably also know that, like most guys my age, I’m also a huge fan of the Indiana Jones films. While … Continue reading

Collision Bend Brewery

My brother and I attended Wizard World Comic Con back in March and then stumbled on to an outstanding brewery in Cleveland – Collision Bend Brewery. Collision Bend is located at 1250 Old River Rd which is sort of an out of the way spot for a brewery but it’s well worth your time to check it out. They had a slew of beers to choose from and their flight prices were outstanding. They had a … Continue reading

12 Years Ago Today… I Took Control

July 24th is a day that I’ve always got circled on my calendar. It’s the anniversary of the day that I took my life back. 12 years ago today, I quit chewing tobacco. For nearly 18 years I chewed Kodiak, Skoal and Copenhagen on a daily basis… sometimes more than a can per day. Quitting was at the same time one of the most rewarding and most difficult things that I’ve ever done. My wonderful … Continue reading

7 Cocktails With Whiskey That Will Blow Your Mind

Whiskey

Parties are incomplete without cocktails. Any generic alcoholic drink having two or more than two ingredients earns itself the title of a cocktail. Does not matter if you are a professional bartender, or assume the role of one for your house party, you should absolutely be familiar with the nitty-gritty of some drinks. From sweet to dry, hot to icy, stirred to shaken, the number of cocktails available today is overwhelming. Selecting a few out … Continue reading

Money In The Bank (2018)

Money in the Bank (2018)

Last Sunday night, the WWE held its annual Money In The Bank event live on the WWE Network at the Allstate Arena. It was the ninth event under the Money in the Bank chronology. I’m thrilled to say that WWE is back to monthly PPV shows rather than the oppressive twice a month schedule. That said I’ve cut WAY back on my wrestling viewing for a variety of reasons including being just too damn busy and quite frankly wrestling has … Continue reading
