The original is entertaining, the redux is classic:
For the last few years, my Uncle and my Dad have been coming to Columbus for the Good Guys car show. I’m personally not a “huge” fan of classic cars, but the combination of great craftsmanship and the opportunity to see those two act like little kids again more than makes up for the sunburns […]
Watched this guy last night and he does a great job with what he has to work with physically.

According to Leonardo Moran of Bill Melendez Productions, “Composer John Scott Trotter directed his trombonist to ‘enunciate’ the teacher’s dialog as though it were a trombone riff. Trotter…would read the teacher’s line, e.g., ‘Linus, where’s your homework?’ then direct the trombonist to repeat Trotter’s […]
Well, I did my “husbandly” duty and replaced a bad exhaust fan in our master bathroom last night. For a large portion of you, that probably doesn’t seem like much, but for yours truly, while technology comes fairly easy, manual labor is far from my strong suit.
I had purchased a replacement fan kit […]
Seems that PayPal answered fairly quick after my post a few days ago on accepting SMS based money exchanges, taking on new comer TextPayMe. Still not sure how quickly it will catch on, but the thought of doing cash free transfers face to face is intriguing if anything. Guess if you have a few tech […]
Very cool little video up in the Land of Glutnix. He posted an update with a “spoof” video done by a guy juggling 5 instead of 3, but I agree with most of the posters on YouTube – it isn’t the act of juggling that is well done, it is the choreography and timing with […]

Wiki + Recipes = Wikipes. Interesting idea for a wiki.
Yeah, they are back. Again. And thankfully, they dropped Bobby. Sort of like how he dropped his dra’s to moon the crowd when we saw them in concert. And they are now on Bad Boy records, backed and produced by Mr Diddy.
Not quite sure how I got it from the new, closer Circuit City […]
While doing my daily news feed check via FeedDemon, I discoverd that ThinkGeek was carrying Just A Geek , a book I’ve been eyeing for a while. I don’t do much book readin’ these days, as I think my reading eyes are worn out from all the surfing I do, but every once in a […]
