I'm horrible to watch Antiques Roadshow with. I find myself shouting at the screen a la Indian Jones, "That belongs in a museum!"
And this really is the core of my being: I am excited by old things, find them amazing, fascinating, want them to be accessible to all, and want… Read full post »

I like trying new things. By “things” I mean food.
Living in Austin means I get an ever evolving restaurant scene in which to bask in beautiful tasty goodness.
As far as Prometheus goes, I'm doing an un-review. I say little and there are no real spoilers, period.
If you want something more comprehensive scroll down for the Moonrise Kingdom review.
I'll keep this brief. It shouldn't be discussed unless you're with people who have already s… Read full post »
I tend to find myself in awkward, uncomfortable situations on a semi regular basis. I don’t mean to do this, but rarely am I sorry that I did so after the fact. I simply don’t seem to fit in. And naturally I blame my parents for this. It’s… Read full post »
I haven't done a fashion post in a while, basically because I wear all the same crap: Jeans, shoes, cotton-poly blend top. Sometimes I change it up and wear a denim jacket on top and a tee shirt for pants, but that's really only on extremely sloppy mornings… Read full post »
Like all people who have "tried every diet" and suffer being "fat from birth", any miracle drug completely excites me. Part of that is because science amazes me. Much of the pills we take come with both positive and (many) negative effects,… Read full post »
Here are a few things I love right now:
*War of the Tablet Begun It Has.
I love me some iPad 2, but HATE the price tag. Both Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble hope to cater to individuals like me with… Read full post »
In a Super Secret Screening on Monday October 24th, the Alamo Drafthouse of Austin invited fans to a free showing of Young Adult, featuring in-person guests Director Jason Reitman and star Patton Oswalt. The film opens in limited release on December 9th and wider on December 16th.
“Pop! You didn’t take you pills this morning!” my Uncle Vinny called from the tiny kitchen in my grandparents’ shotgun apartment.
“I know and I’m not gonna take ‘em today,” my grandfather responded. “Today is a special day… Read full post »

Here are things happening right now:

It’s a pissy Tuesday morning. Maybe it’s the economy. Or maybe it’s the middle and lower classes have been screwed in the Debt Ceiling Deal, while the rich have been rewarded. Again.
Maybe it’s just Dumbledore’s voice resonating: “Dark and difficult times lie ahe… Read full post »

Today looms an expected and much assumed Verizon announcement that they will be getting their own Apple iPhone.
Update 10.19AM, C.T.: Verizon has announced they will be carrying an iPhone at some point in February 2011.
This got me thinking...about cable television.… Read full post »

In 1993 President Clinton advocated to allow homosexuals to join the military. This prompted DADT: Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

Christian Correct Holidays
I'm not particularly religious.
I grew up outside of New York City. You were either Catholic (i.e. you celebrated Christmas, but may or may not have attended church), Jewish (a full 35-42% of my area was Jewish), Muslim, or y… Read full post »
Fox News reports that their "experts" believe Willie Nelson will go to jail for his recent marijuana indiscretion.
