Episode VIII Title Revealed – The Last Jedi

Star Wars Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

There are few things that get my nerd juices flowing more than upcoming Star Wars news. The title for the upcoming Star Wars Episode VIII was just announced: The Last Jedi. I was excited before and I’m even more excited now. I’ve been loving everything that Disney has done with the Star Wars property ever since they took it over (believe me… I’ve still got a Rogue One review coming). Now that we’ve got an … Continue reading

The Twin Towers In My Website Analytics

The Twin Towers Show Up In My 9-11 Analytics

Not only do I write for this blog, but I’m a web geek in many ways.  I do a whole slew of digital marking stuff from web design & development, search engine optimization and web analytics.  I realize to some people analytics is pretty boring, but to me its pure gold.  I absolutely love diving into my analytics to see where my traffic is coming from, what posts get the most views and how people … Continue reading

Action Lab Entertainment Presents: Double Jumpers

Double Jumpers #1 By Action Lab Entertainment

I’m a geek.  A comic book nerd.  I’m an 80’s movie quoting, hair metal loving dork.  I have been for as long as I can remember.  Unfortunately, as life has gotten in the way of my wasted youth, one of the things that has fallen by the wayside for a variety of reasons has been reading comic books.  Luckily, these days, there are a variety of ways for me to “keep up” with my old … Continue reading

Facebook Pet Peeves

Facebook Like Button

Facebook.  It’s a social networking site.  I’m not going to bother explaining it any further than that cause if you don’t know what it is, you probably won’t be able to understand the explanation.  I’ve talked many times about Facebook.  I’ve said some good things.  I’ve said some bad things.  I’ve wondered how they do some of the things that they do.  Today I’m back with a couple of Facebook pet peeves.  If you’re a … Continue reading

The Phantom Menace In 3D – I Hope It Fails Miserably

The Phantom Menace In 3D

I’ll warn you in advance… I have a feeling this is going to turn into a bit of a rant.  I have a feeling that I may insult a few folks and for that I apologize, but quite frankly I’m at the end of my rope.  Don’t say I didn’t give you a head’s up. My respect for George Lucas is officially gone.  The man that created what I consider to be the greatest series … Continue reading

No Love For The Crocs

My Crocs At The Home Depot

I recently posted this picture to my Facebook page.  Now I know that Crocs aren’t “cool” by any stretch of the imagination, but I have to say I was a little bit shocked at just how much people hate these shoes. Interested in the responses?  Here they are (some of them had me rolling)… not cool..lmao! Yuck Lowes is much better you shouldn’t be wearing those unless you’re mario batali or 6. -5 cool points … Continue reading

A Bit Of My Geek Collection

80's Toys

In a previous post I talked about how I’d recently gone through some boxes in the basement and pulled out some old toys, specifically my Devastator from back in the day.  That lead to a discussion on one of my favorite podcast’s Facebook page about our collections, etc.  I took this quick video to show a couple of my items and thought I’d share it here as well. It focuses on figures from the first … Continue reading

Bringing Back An Old Friend: Devastator

G1 Devastator

As you know if you read more than a post or two here, I’m a geek.  I’m a child stuck in a (fat) man’s body that simply refuses to grow up.  As I’m the father of two and (more importantly in this case) husband to one I have but one room left in the house that I can call mine…the basement.  As the kids get bigger (and require more room to run and store THEIR … Continue reading

The Best Of The 411 From 2010

Top 10 2010

These types of lists typically come out at the beginning of the year.  I’m all for giving convention the middle finger so I’m doing it in the day after St. Patrick’s Day.  Got a problem with that?  🙂  Part of why I keep this blog is as some sort of  “outlet” for my creative juices.  Another is that in this day and age this is about the only “cool” way for a guy to keep … Continue reading

Oh You Didn’t Know?

The New Age Outlaws

The wife looked at me today and made the following statement: “The boys are neanderthals because they’re learning from their blockhead father.” While I certainly don’t mind the personal comparisons to Charlie Brown, I thought that was a wee bit harsh on G & C so I decided to investigate what would bring their mother to speak so ill of them. If you’ve ever read this blog, you know by now that I’m a bit … Continue reading
