So many options, so little time. This is what happens when you get premium channels for free for a given time but have no time to watch them. Below this bunch is a recording of Hellboy from October. I am... Continue reading

For the second year in a row, Katie and I went with my brother and his wife to see a Professional Bull Riders (PBR) event here in Chicago. I really can’t explain why but I love it. It’s a ton... Continue reading
