We learned yesterday that Nelson Mandela had passed away at the age of 95. His health had been in a state of decline for some months, but he was referred to as critical yet stable, so this is something of a shock, even at Mandela’s age. At a moment like this, it’s easy to realize how unlikely it is that someone like Mandela ever existed and how little chance there is of ever seeing the likes of him again. Read the rest of this entry
I know, this Paco Rabanne commercial is confusing, but don’t worry – I’m gonna break this shiz down for you.
1. Don’t keep your woman locked in a vault. Besides all of the obvious moral objections, you’ll literally go to jail for a thousand years. (Anytime anyone says anything about “a thousand years,” I think of that song from Twilight .)
Hello all! The live blogging from the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting should begin around 6!
I have arrived. The crowds are crazy on 6th Ave, but not nearly as bad on 5th Ave.

Ah, Christmas – the time of year when we express our love and appreciation for each other by exchanging gifts. I think we all agree that Christmas is good stuff, but at times, the gift giving can get overshadowed by the actual gift procuring. We’ve all been there – sometimes, finding the perfect gift is a royal pain in the butt, BUT fear not, because Old Cousin Big Foot has arrived to folk art up your life! Check out his store for original, one of a kind folk art gifts that will certainly not end up in the closet with last year’s sweater. Stand out from the crowd and hang with Old Cousin Big Foot!
I’ll be blogging tonight LIVE from Rockefeller Center as we count down to tonight’s lighting of the Christmas tree!
What can I say about Fred Claus? Well, it sucks… but given its user ratings on IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes, you already knew that. Perhaps I should ask “What can I say about Fred Claus that you don’t already know?” Not much, so this is going to be a quick one. Read the rest of this entry
Microsoft Outlook may be the most mysterious program I’ve ever used. Sure, some programs are complex or don’t have a great interface, but sometimes, Microsoft Outlook just decides it’s gonna do da f*ck what it wants ta do, beotch!
For example, I’ll be moving through my inbox, deleting unwanted mails and then BOOM! It brings me back up to the top of the list. Another great thing Outlook likes to do is randomly assign what email account it will send a mail from. That’s fun, too.
My favorite Outlook quirk is, however, when somehow an email is so incredibly heinous that it will get marked as a "***VIRUS***" in the subject line, but Outlook will still put it in the inbox folder. Really, Outlook? How about we go with the Junk folder for this stuff? Maybe it’s not Outlook’s fault – maybe my anti-virus is marking the emails, but you’d think the most successful software company in the history of the industry could figure out that "***VIRUS***" means bad and take the appropriate action.
This Christmas, web ads might ask you to make an arbitrary decision about BS you don’t care about, but don’t worry, I’m on it:
That’s a phone, a set of headphones and two more phones. What’s to know? It’s not like the choices of Wii U, Playstation 4 and XBox 1 (three devices that I would like to understand how are different from one another); I already have a phone and I understand what blu tooth headphones are, so…
Oh look! Another hero disabled embedding!
I’ll be straight with ya – I liked The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. I liked the first one, too. Sure, the movie is close up and hand-held camera heavy (and the idea to back light the kisses gave us a nice clear shot of spit being shared between two young lovers), but at its essence, it’s a good story. That being said, I recommend that anyone who is a fan of action, adventure, visuals and performance check out these movies. I’m giving Catching Fire a 9 out of 10.
But, that doesn’t mean I can’t have some fun at the movie’s expense. Read the rest of this entry
