Top 10 Guilty Pleasure Movies

MegaForce Movie Poster

My favorite podcast, The Geek Savants recently did a show about guilty pleasure movies (I.E. bad movies that you love and will watch every time you run across them).  It was a great episode and really got me to thinking about some of my favorites.  That said, here’s my list! HONORABLE MENTIONS Legally Blonde (2001) – Reese Witherspoon plays Elle Woods, a stuck up blond girl from out California that follows her boyfriend to Harvard … Continue reading

Vader? Neo? Either Way I’m A Dork

Vader Or Neo?

So I’m walking to my car the other day just minding my own business.  I’m listening to my headphones and happen to glance down and catch my shadow and it stops me dead in my tracks.  My geek radar is going berserk and I just have to snap a pic. Being the dork that I am two characters came to mind… Darth Vader and Neo.  Not sure which I’d prefer but either way it’d be … Continue reading

And They Say Downtown Cleveland Is Dead…

2009 St. Patrick's Day In Cleveland

As I sat in my office watching the crowds on St. Patrick’s Day I learned a couple of things.  In addition to those things, I was really just glad to see PEOPLE downtown again.  I tell you, when the Cavs or Indians aren’t in town, there simply isn’t anyone down here anymore.  It’s sad, but it was damn awesome to see that Cleveland can still be a thriving city.  I’m hoping that the nice weather … Continue reading

Stuff I’ve Learned Recently

Baby's Crib

It’s amazing the things you learn when you’re a first time dad.  Here are a few things that I’ve recently learned.  And I thought I had this whole parenting thing licked… Once a child learns that they can get out of their crib, they will do so… 3,427 times a night. Buying a new lock for said child’s door that locks them IN the room doesn’t make you a bad dad… it helps you get … Continue reading

10 Things I Learned About St. Patrick’s Day


Beer on St. Patrick’s Day is the same beer that you get any other day of the year.  It’s just green.  I don’t understand why if you’re not in college you would take a day off work to drink.  I guess I’m getting old. Bagpipes do NOT sound good.  Sorry to say but they do indeed sound like dying cats. Girls will take St. Patrick’s Day as an opportunity to dress slutty.  Apparently I need … Continue reading

The WrestleMania 25 Drinking Game

WrestleMania 25 Logo

Pip and I get together every year (just about) and celebrate our geekdom by watching the “Grandaddy of them all” – WrestleMania.  For those of you that don’t know, this is the WWE’s flagship show and marks the end of the wrestling “season” if there was such a thing.  It’s the culmination of story lines that have been going on for quite a while and it’s always the event that is seen by most households.  … Continue reading

‘Spider-Man 2’ – To Be Or Not To Be Spider-Man

Spider-Man 2 (2004)

The first time I saw this film I thought it was just about the best comic book movie that had ever been made.  After re-watching it it’s still pretty damn good but there are definitely some things that I’d overlooked the first time… some bad things. This installment picks up pretty much right where Spider-Man left us.  Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) is back at it stopping bad guys left and right.  This is however taking … Continue reading

Dick Vitale – Please Just Go Away

Dick Vitale

It’s March which means it’s time for college basketball to really kick into gear.  Unfortunately, that also means that it’s time for my ears to be filled with a bunch of screaming and yelling by “Dickie V” a.k.a. Dick Vitale. He screams about his “Diaper Dandy’s” which are supposed to be younger players that are great.  However when he’s pontificating about how great these youngsters are it just sounds contrived.  Please stop Dick.  Mike and … Continue reading
