There was a time I thought that Elon Musk was just an eccentric genius. Incredibly talented and wealthy, but maybe a bit on the loony side. And I could forgive that. To paraphrase Norman Bates, we all go a little mad sometimes, right?
As of about five minutes ago, I am only two books away from my 2022 reading stretch goal of 70 books on the year! And I have 11 days to finish it!
It really cracked me up how many people guessed that last week’s #MiniMoviePosterMonday photo was some variation of Scrooge from A Christmas Carol. Alas, it was Foo Fighters guitarist Pat Smear from the cover of the band’s horror film Studio 666.
One of my favorite place to browse in the world is the Withdrawn racks at our library. These are the media that have been pulled off the shelves and would wind up either as donations or dust collectors.
This Mold-a-Rama I got at Brookfield Zoo last weekend is perfect for all kinds of situations.
I recently started taking a deeper dive into 3D printing. No, I do not own a printer. No, I do not design things to be printed. But I've gone on a Google quest to see what kinds of .stl (stereolithography) files can be found for downloading and printing.
What I said yesterday about liars? That was a lie. There is one thing worse… liars that are proven wrong who then go on to live their life like nothing happened and never acknowledge their misdeed at all.
There’s no one I love more than a liar.
Tonight, we break into the annual list of Katie's and my favorite holiday films. I specify "Katie's and my" because there are plenty of films we share with Nathan and expand upon that list each year as he ages. For example, we introduced National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation to him last weekend. There will be others as well.
Sadly, despite having two weeks to guess, nobody got Master Yoda’s famed visage from the cover of one of the many prequel trilogies that have been released over the years.
Every once in a while, we’ll catch our next door neighbor sitting outside smoking via our Nest doorbell cam. We’ll watch through the app as she sits there puffing and scanning her phone.
Yeah, I've been watching a little of the World Cup here and there. Although I don't really understand all that much about "World Football," I still enjoy checking it out.
Howsabout a second batch of reviews for Jay-Mike-Fred: A Horror Compendium? I remembered a few others I've seen recently and a couple more A Nightmare on Elm Street films since the last batch of reviews. So here goes...
I usually try to keep my personal and toy photography blogs separate. No real reason why, I just do. But I have to admit that I'm really proud of how this shot I took earlier today turned out so I wanted to share it here for my two readers.
Nathan and I officially have a new favorite Christmas song! Who needs Mariah Carey when you have the Old 97s and a motley assortment of alien life forms via the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
I'm supposed to start those Kevin's 7 end of year media recap posts, aren't I?
So I messed up the normal routine for Macro Monday last week… I completely forgot to crosspost it to Facebook. And since I received no correct guesses (and am feeling a bit lazy), I’m gonna keep it going for another week.
How about a few quick Snippets before the clock hits midnight?
Have you seen the film Nobody with Bob Odenkirk yet? Holy shitballs! It is amazing!
Welcome, December! I missed you, my friend. Have I warned you? Let’s see.
It’s cold. Damn cold. I need a blanket, a cup of hot coffee, and a book. See you next spring!
Holy balls! Metallica's latest single, "Lux Æterna," rocks my world! You gotta check this out!
There are supposed to be 52 weeks in the year, translating to 52 Macro Monday posts. Here we are in the final week of November and I'm only up to post #40? Yeah, I've missed a few here and there, haven't I?
While I’ve always been bothered by those sticker families on cars, nothing bothers me more than when those “families” are ill considered before being applied to a cars rear window.
I've decided that I'm going to start a listing of horror films I've been rewatching over the last few months over on my Rankings page and I'm going to call it Jay-Mike-Fred: A Horror Compendium in honor of the three major movie slashers that got me into the genre and whose series I hope to be able to rank fully within a few months... Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers, and Freddy Krueger.
Nathan was watching a how-to video on drawing on YouTube and decided to hunker down with some paper and markers and create a chibi version of his hero Eddie Munson from Stranger Things 4.
I’m watching Raya and the Last Dragon with Nathan and suddenly I hear him, for whatever reason, start singing Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up.”
Everyone keeps saying that photography on Instagram is dead and that videos made using Reels within IG is the only way to get noticed. I’m testing this theory by posting an original photo and a slightly modified version of the same photo as a reel just to see what happens.
Unfortunately, there was no love for Simon last week as no one guessed the challenge photo.
We saw Black Adam. Going in, I wasn’t sure what to make of it. I want to believe that Dwayne Johnson can do no wrong and, for the most part, that is a solid base on which to stand.
We have a new family elf for this year’s Christmas celebration! Meet NatELF.
If after all the years of badmouthing by developers and QA…
If after being told for 15 years that it is non-standard compliant…
Instructions are boring. Necessary, but boring. And, more often than not, they’re incredibly poorly written.
