Big Trouble For The Dream Warriors

2015 HorrorHound Indianapolis - LoPan (original)

So it’s nearly WrestleMania time once again! In less than a week, Pip will make his yearly trek to Cleveland for a weekend of pretending we’re way younger than we actually are, movie viewing and general bad behavior. I won’t speak for him but I look forward to our twice yearly get togethers and I start counting down to his Cleveland trip pretty much from the time I pull out of his driveway on my … Continue reading

Overdue WrestleMania 30 Drinking Game Results

WrestleMania 30 Brock Wins

As we’re preparing for this Sunday’s WrestleMania 31 and the accompanying festivities (including yet another attempt at The Beeramid) I’ve been looking back at last year’s entries here on the site. I’ve realized yet again that I was a bad blogger and never got around to posting results from last year’s WrestleMania 30 Drinking Game! With that said, I give you the results of LAST YEAR’S Beeramid buildling game: WrestleMania 30 Official Picks Marko picked … Continue reading

Meeting Robert Englund – Welcome To Prime Time Chewie

Robert Englund & Chewie

In a recent post I talked about how I got to cross off a bucket list item last month when Pip and I attended HorrorHound Weekend in Indianapolis and I got to meet Barry Bostwick.  The last line of that particular post I ended like this: “The weekend didn’t end there… I had another “nightmarish” encounter at the same show.  But that will be covered in another post.”  And finally… here’s the other post.  If you couldn’t … Continue reading

Meeting Barry Bostwick – The Good Guys Always Win

Chewie & Barry Bostwick

If you’ve read my stuff here you know that I’m a bit of a geek.  I tend to get a bit lost in my childhood and have a tendency to like some stuff that’s a tad bit out of the norm.  One example of this is my love for the 80’s action flick MegaForce.  It’s a supremely terrible film that I happen to absolutely love.  In fact, I listed is as #1 on my list … Continue reading

WrestleMania 29 Drinking Game Results

WrestleMania 29 Set

For those following along with the WrestleMania 29 Drinking Game shenanigans, this post is for you.  We’ve been putting together yearly WrestleMania drinking games since WrestleMania 25, but just last year did we start keeping track of the results of said game.

Overheard at Starbucks – Apple is Awesome

Starbucks Logo

Just about every weekend, I head to Starbucks at least once (sometimes twice) to do some work.  I love the kids and Wife, but if I actually need to get some stuff done it’s pretty difficult.  Anyhow… I was sitting in Starbucks the other day and while I normally just do my own thing with my headphones in on this day I couldn’t help but overhear the conversation going on at the table next to … Continue reading

Party Anthem – Rihanna’s “Cheers”

Cheers (2010)

I’m not a huge fan of Rihanna but I have to once again give huge props to my wife for turning me on to an awesome song.  Talk about a party anthem!  Great lyrics and just an all around fun song! “Cheers (Drink To That)” – Rihanna Cheers to the freakin weekend I drink to that, yeah yeah Oh let the Jameson sink in I drink to that, yeah yeah Don’t let the bastards get … Continue reading

A Busy 4th Of July Weekend

Watching The Fireworks

Holiday weekends are great and this past one was no exception.  We were jam packed starting on Friday night when we got together to celebrate Gramp’s birthday (pics forthcoming).  As you can tell from the photo here the kids really enjoyed their weekend and for once we were able to tire them out (3 nights in a row out WAY past their bedtime will do that I suppose). Saturday was “get away day” as we … Continue reading

We Built A Box

Sandbox

I typically try to keep up with my life here on the blog so it reads in chronological order, but I’ve been so busy lately that I’m a little behind.  That said, stay tuned for a couple of posts about movies I’ve watched recently, baseball and Father’s Day. However… wanted to write about my weekend project.  The Sandbox.  The boys have had a small sandbox for the last couple of years and it’s quite frankly … Continue reading

Top 10 From The First 5

G At Age 5

Today’s the G-man’s 5th birthday!  The kid simply doesn’t sleep these days so even though he went to bed at near 10:00 PM last night, he was up this AM at around 6:30.  I figured I’d cut him some slack this morning cause hell… it’s his birthday!  As it’s his 5th birthday, today also happens to be the anniversary of our first day as parents.  To that end, I decided to put this quick list … Continue reading
