Random And (Not So) Deep Thoughts

Deep Thoughts

My son has taken to sleeping in the nude.  I’m not sure why I think that’s so funny but it cracks me up every time I think about it. “Better late than pregnant” – this line came from some random email forward that I got and it made me laugh. The Tribe kicked the shit out of the Yankees on opening day of their new stadium.  The Yankees will probably win the World Series this … Continue reading

Top 10 WrestleMania Matches

WrestleMania Logo

WrestleMania 25 is just recently in the books.  It wasn’t great but there were a couple of REALLY good matches.  WrestleMania weekend for me always means going back and reliving some of those great matches from past events.  It’s rare that this list is modified, but thanks to the Dead Man and Mr. WrestleMania this year, it was.  Honorable mentions and The Top Ten are listed in order of occurrence (oldest to newest).  Keep in … Continue reading

Return of The Beeramid

2009 Beeramid - Chewie & Pip

We came… we saw… we kicked its ass!!! Things were looking pretty harry there for while, but I’m happy to say that once again, Pip & I stood victorious over the structure that we refer to as the Beeramid.  I’ll be honest with you, there was a time there when we thought we were in for a rough go of it.  Then we realized that the base of the Beeramid was one too big… once … Continue reading

WrestleMania 25 Recap – Lackluster Show With A Couple Of Standouts

WrestleMania 25 Logo

Pip, my brother and I got together and carried on our tradition of watching WrestleMania together.  This was the 25th anniversary of the show so were expecting big things and a great show.  What we got (with a couple of exceptions) was neither.  Overall I’d have to say it was a pretty bad show with just a couple of high spots – certainly not what we were expecting from the biggest show of the year… … Continue reading

There’s Just Too Much Going On – ‘Spider-Man 3’

Spider-Man 3 (2007)

This was the third Spider-Man film directed by Sam Raimi and it had the potential to be awesome.  Unfortunately the potential was never realized.  There are definitely some parts of this movie that are great – in fact there are some scenes in here that are by far my favorites of the Spider-Man “trilogy” but there are others that are pretty much unforgivable.  Please note I’ll have MAJOR SPOILERS in this review.  If you haven’t … Continue reading

The History of The Beeramid

2007 Beeramid - Permasmiles

A tradition started a few years ago… Construct a fortress to geekdom… Construct… The Beeramid. Pip and I started this tradition while watching WrestleMania one year and we’ve continued it every time he’s come to visit since then.  Now, just the thought of the upcoming weekend has me giddy like a little school girl.  I simply cannot wait.  And while it’s certainly not the amount of beer that we’ve drunk in the past, you do … Continue reading

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
