Another thing I hate is all the re-use. I was looking up an news of wineries in Napa and Sonoma affected by the wildfires and three of the top five articles were all different sources but the same article, word-for-word, including the same embedded Tweet. I know this is the wire service providing for multiple outlets, but take time to make it your own.

A little bit ago, I blogged about my disdain for misleading headlines. I said I hate how they give you an incorrect impression about what is contained in the article and leave you more disappointed than informed. Well, maybe not... Continue reading

IF YOU CANNOT PARK YOUR BIG ASS CHEVY SUBURBAN PROPERLY, YOU SHOULD NOT BE DRIVING IT. JUST SELL IT AND BUY A YUGO. NOW! [This image is not from what what happened to me earlier tonight. It’s stolen from the... Continue reading

You should google Funko Fanatics and see what some of these people do. It’s scary.

Why, yes. Yes I do like taking pictures of sunsets. It’s one of my favorite things. I don’t care how cliché it may seem, sunset photos are awesome. This one was taken 10 years ago today. Maybe yesterday. I’m not... Continue reading

For the better part of decade, I was a big fan (but only a minimal collector) of Funko POP vinyl toys. They represented a very unique take on pop culture icons and characters with their oversized heads and custom-sculpted bodies.... Continue reading

And premium ones cost even more. It’s ridiculous.

You’ve all heard the phrase “jump the shark,” right? If not, it’s a reference to an episode of Happy Days, later in its run, when the Fonz (Henry Winkler) jumped over a shark on water skis. [embedded video] This scene... Continue reading

I have to admit I was truly disturbed by the belly button guesses to last week’s Macro Monday. Truly. Disturbed. It was not. Not even close. Ew. As for this week’s challenge photo, it’s a little more fun. And I... Continue reading

As the Cubs seem to have yet to show up for the NLCS and I am, as a result, more than a bit disgusted about it and have few thoughts otherwise, would you be okay with some food porn from... Continue reading

I like clever resolutions to stupid problems. Case in point, the other day at work, we were engaging in the timeless argument about the proper pronunciation of the file extension .gif. In case you’re not in the know, there has... Continue reading

Today, Katie and I hit 16 years of marriage. 16 years. We've been married as long as it takes to breed a new driver (in the United States; not sure about elsewhere). This is pretty unbelievable to me. I really... Continue reading

Ahhhhh ok. That makes sense then.

It’s his choice to support the military and *not* the president and he’s making that clear because our country’s lowest common denominator obviously needs it spelled out. Sadly just how it is.

It was more an experiment with a new feature than anything else. I’ll use them as a last resort when image uploads are too painful to bear. Only then I’ll use IG.

A lot of the listings are “Parts Only.” Of course those are always the best deals.
