Red Riding Hood Movie Review

Holy fucking shit. Sometimes there are movies so bad that it is honestly hard to know what exactly to write about. Things are so terrible that you don’t know where to start and the poor quality or abject lack of any quality at all can make it difficult to even describe. Red Riding Hood is […]

Why Do Security Professionals Think Criminals are So Dumb?

I read a story today on Slashdot about an officer working for the Maryland Department of Corrections that was told his Facebook username and password must be provided to his employer so they can read his private messages in order to vet him for his re-certification… for national security reasons. What bothers me the most […]

Resident Evil: Afterlife Movie Review

As far as the Resident Evil games are concerned, I am a huge fan. Movies? Not so much. I liked the first one despite its flaws and the second half of the second movie was okay. The last one blew. The trailers for Resident Evil: Afterlife looked kind of promising with the addition of Chris […]

Leo Laporte is Done With Social Media

Leo Laporte recently wrote on his blog about how a technical hickup with Google Buzz not reposting his info to Twitter for a month and no one noticing made him realize that this torrent of “social” apps that we are buried in are a complete waste of time. I should have been posting it here […]

Foursquare and Gowalla iPhone Apps Sending Passwords in Plaintext

Foursquare replied and said they are rolling out an HTTPS authentication-based login today which is good news, but seriously, 1 million users later and […]

A Compelling Message From a Diehard GHOST HUNTERS Fan!

You’ve all read my posts.  I’m not hiding any big secrets about thinking that PERHAPS certain shows pad, recreate, or even weave from whole cloth their “results.”  Understandably, such a forward-thinking, against-the-grain set of opinions are bound to get you locked into many a pissing contest and, judging by the nearly 400 responses on my original […]

You’re Ugly and Your Drama Dresses You Funny.

Of course, I am talking about PARA drama. For the uninitiated, para drama is a stupid term invented to define an even stupider thing.  That stupid thing being the ridiculously disproportionate amount of infighting, backstabbing, trickery, chicanery, and downright lying that members of a so-called “paranormal community” commit towards each other with more regularity than […]

My Experience with HTC Nexus One Support was Mediocre

Disclaimer: This is a re-telling of my experience with HTC Nexus One support on February 8, 2010 from 9am through 10:30am. I wanted to relay my experience so any potential Nexus One shoppers out there may get an idea of their own experience-to-be if they run into trouble. I bought a Nexus One 2 weeks […]

Goodwill Hunting

One of the best parts of thrifting, aside from finding fabulously valuable merchandise that you can flip on Ebay, are the small windows that open, allowing a deliciously voyeuristic glimpse into humanity.  Take Cynthia, for example, who probably didn’t even realize that she tucked these important papers into the book she was reading in the […]

Thus Concludes Another Year…

And I have absolutely nothing to write about.   I have no lists to compile, I have no great sense of accomplishment or closure, I am just going to wake up tomorrow and it will be January, 2010. Why this overwhelming sense of ennui?  I have no idea.  Maybe it’s because of all the drama in […]

Costco Wants You to See in HD This Holiday Season

I was at Costco today doing some shopping and came across the gem pictured above — what they were missing was a “Stop seeing your life in standard def!” This is what happens when you give marketing people carte-blanche and they decide they are going to rape everyone that is 50 and older with a […]

More Proof Women Like Assholes or Edward Cullen Is a Douche

Before we get to this I have to issue a disclaimer/warning. The following article will feature spoilers of major plot points in the Twilight Series and will do so with a level of contempt previously unheard of outside of the average review for a Michael Bay film. If you don’t want to have things spoiled […]

Even South Park Thinks T.A.P.S. is Full of Shit

It’s no mystery that some of the writers here show no love for T.A.P.S. or the Ghost Hunters show — in fact there are quite a few readers who agree, that’s why I got such a big kick out of last-nights South Park episode. In true South Park fashion, they rip into Ghost Hunters as […]

OMG. lk, gt a lf!!

You know…”in MY day”…being 13 meant swimming at friends’ houses, playing street hockey, maybe some classic Street Fighter on Super NES, or Mario Kart before it went all crazy 3D on the Game Cube, I could never handle those crazy controllers… But now, NOW, apparently being 13 means txt-ing. Non. F-ing. Stop. This dad I […]

Inky Stinky.

I love tattoos.  I love everything about getting a tattoo.  I love the anticipation of the tattoo, the tawdry feeling of subversiveness that comes with hanging out in the tattoo parlor, the knowledge that you are going to leave looking a little more badass than when you walked in, and ESPECIALLY the searing sting and deafening […]

Competency. Try it.

It’s Friday, thank god. As anyone who has ever worked a phone job can attest to, that amazing invention with the buttons and the dial tone attracts some total nutjobs that grace one’s daily life on this end of the telephone cord with some truly awesome glimpses at humanity at its finest. For example, the […]

Let's All Pray for the Stupid People…

Seriously.  Why is there so much of it in the world?  Isn’t there a non-profit organization dedicated to the elimination of stupidity? I have been looking forward to a specific rummage sale for several weeks now.  I had my strategy in place, my stockpile of cash, I was SET to do a little transacting.  The […]

From the Brilliant Parenting Files… File #3

The first line of the story says it all: STEVENSVILLE, Montana (AP) — About 90 elementary school students in Montana have started a series of rabies shots after a parent let them touch a dead bat that was later confirmed to be diseased.
