It blows my mind that you can spend a thousand or more dollars on a way cool laptop like the one I have for work and, despite this already excessive cost, buying a brand new power adapter for it still costs anywhere from $50-80 depending on how fast you want your laptop to charge.
Hey, sorry for the delay on this post. Typepad had scheduled maintenance last night and I couldn’t get a post written. So this is gonna be backdated. Anyway...
If you follow my Instagram account, you may have seen this...
As a family with a childish boy and a five year old (see what I did there?), we’re still in a bit of shock over the news that Toys ‘r’ Us is closing down.
It’s true. They were warned... They are doomed... And on Friday the 13th, nothing will save them.
Nathan was always kinda odd when it came to stuffed animals. For the first nearly four years of his life, he didn’t care.
Katie and I had a little bit of home reno fun this past Sunday. We redid Nathan’s room. Technically this is about the third or even fourth time we’ve redone this room in the last six years. Whatevs.
Remember what a big deal this was for us?
I guess I had two toughies in a row. No correct guesses. But I knew it would be a difficult one. It was more an attempt to make you look at something common in a different way.
As happens any time there are re-casting rumors for the role of James Bond, the world has its collective panties in a twist.
NPR reported on a study published by researchers at Temple University and the Wisconsin HOPE Lab that concludes that 36 percent of college students are “food insecure,” another 36 percent are “housing insecure,” and another 9 percent are outright homeless.
The other day, I took in one of my first * experiences with the up-and-coming horror movie powerhouse Blumhouse Productions.
I can’t believe it was nearly 12 years ago that Katie and I flew out to San Francisco and met up with my brother and his then-girlfriend/now-wife for a couples’ vacation.
I am going to make a bold declaration right now. It is one that many may not agree with and may curse me for saying. But it's how I feel and nothing you can say will change it.
I’m not a big fan of reading music reviews. Often times, I feel like a reviewer doesn’t give enough of a listen to an album before passing judgment. On the flip side of the coin, the industry suffers from rampant fanboyism so how objective can they truly be?
I admit that I was truly worried last week’s challenge photo would be too easy. Nobody got it. Nobody! Seriously.
Happy Easter! And Happy April Fools’ Day! And... I’m sure there’s something else going on, too. I’m just too lazy to figure it out. Instead, let’s celebrate another month of personal goal achievement, shall we?
In this day and age, when corporate profit trumps customer service by those very companies, I love hearing stories about great service.
I like showers. I like the feel of hot water pounding at the base of my skull and rolling down my shoulders and back. Closest to a massage I’ve ever had. It just sucks how much water you waste taking a shower.
Several years ago, I was having a bad day at work when I got a random email that I almost didn’t read. But I did.
When someone first mentioned that Cloak & Dagger was coming to TV, I expected a remake of this...
I gotta admit that when I decided to get back into collecting audio cassettes, it would be easier than it has been to amass my collection.
I’m unsure whether that happy middle ground between easy Macro Monday and tough Macro Monday will be discovered this week. I guess we’ll see, won’t we?
For some strange reason, YouTube wouldn’t accept the title of this video. Just kept telling me it wouldn’t accept the data upload.
To the planners and participants in today’s March For Our Lives, my unyielding awe and unwavering support.
Nathan cracks me up sometimes. Alright, not “sometimes” so much as “more often than not.” His latest? He wants a set of what he calls “battlebots.”
Since I recently celebrated my 20th anniversary of online journaling/blogging, I thought a cool #ThrowbackThursday might be to share some of my old blog banners. It's possible I've done this before, but oh well. Isn't that what #ThrowbackThursday is all about? Reminiscing?
It kinda makes your day pretty amazing when you see a completely random public comment like this from a friend...
The final lineups for the Pitchfork Music Festival have been announced and my mind has been made up, even more so than it was before.
Last week’s challenge photo was too tough...
Last Tuesday, Nathan asked me where the camera was on my iPhone so I showed him. He snapped these. I had no idea until I found them the other day.
Thanks in no small part to Hrishikesh Hirway’s latest episode of the Song Exploder podcast, I’ve been really digging on Ludwig Göransson’s score for Black Panther.
Do you take part in NCAA Men’s Basketball “March Madness” Tournament brackets? I do. I have for several years. I don’t always do well.
In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day this Saturday, how about this photo of Katie and I when we went out with my brother and his fiancée and a neighbor back in 2006?
It started with this simple declaration written on March 14, 1998 and posted the next day once I found a reliable connection:
