Happy Thanksgiving

Sadly, NBC has C&D’d every copy of my very favorite Thanksgiving video off the interwebs (the Sarah McLachlan/Ana Gasteyer duet “Basted in Blood,” which you can listen to here until the lawyers get to it). This, however, is a great substitute. Sadly, the video quality is not great, but this entire sequence from Addams Family ...

How To Accessorize Your Shredder Oil 2

I recently bought a new shredder after thoroughly destroying my old one, and in doing some research I realized that part of the problem was that the shredder was never properly lubricated.

However, it’s still the damn flu. My fever spiked to 101.9 before I went to bed last night, though it finally broke sometime ...

Sweet Home(coming) Chicago

I went to Chicago this past weekend for the annual Reuniafest festivities – My third straight year and one I was only able to make because I got an absolute steal on airfare. I’d been debating whether throwing financial caution to the wind was a good idea, but I am so, so damn glad I ...

Chaplin vs. Oz Season 4, Disc 3 3

After a nice long bike ride (that boat is still there, by the way, just covered in graffiti), I came home and decided to watch a DVD of Oz that I have out from Netflix. There’s a little CGI fly that flies in and out of the frame on the episode selection menu. Chaplin hopped ...
