Last night, I posted an ad on Freecycle to get a little practice guitar amp (I used to have a little fender and marshall practice amp, but I don't know what happened to either one of them). But I figured … Continue reading Why Sam Ash Sucks

So....right, ya know?And thanks to Bob's moving into a new house, I have one.An Akai, no less.Behold (this is a stock photo of it, but you get the idea, as this is … Continue reading Deeeeeeeeamn Boyeeeeee!
A trip into the community fridge at work can prove quite frightening. Oh sure...it looks innocent enough.But think back. When was the last time anyone at work ordered Donato's?Well...lessee....we had the pizzas in class last week. So...could be that. No, wait a minute. Those were just pizzas. this is clearly a sub. Maybe someone brought … Continue reading Dude. That’s Sick!
Man...I can't tell you how long I've been waiting for Fuddruckers to go redneck. And they finally have. Noting says "Kiss yer cousin, Bubba" quite like Buckets of Beer. Although to be truly authentic, they should have said Buckets O'Beer.No buckets were ordered, but the burger was tasty.Came home and finished cleaning out my side … Continue reading With Apologies to Leonard

The rodeo's in town. Or so it would seem by the dozens of people walking past 2 Nationwide Plaza as the Mrs and I finish up our yearly dinner at Morton's (courtesy of the gift card from my generous employer). We like to look at it as pretend money. Since it's on my boss, we … Continue reading Funny Money and a Saturday Night Smash-Up

A shelf … Continue reading Bye Bye Miss American Pie

Extra points if you can tell me exactly WHY it was such a disappointment.*It, of course being the biggest turd in the entire Atari2600 catalog.Darrin didn't chime in, so … Continue reading Reese’s Pieces and the Fall of an Empire
2006 is already fast becoming the year of change. MediaPlay is closing in....4 days. Thanks BestBuy for buying them and closing their doors. Of the two overpriced media outlets, BestBuy certainly wins in its mega-ness, but it's the little quirks about MediaPlay that I grew to love. And now they're about gone. But I am … Continue reading Matter/anti-Matter*
It's pretty safe to say that the LiveJournal vs. Blogger debate has a pretty clear answer in my mind. There are only a couple of people's journals I read.
