SPOILER FILLED STAR WARS REVIEW - I really mean it! SPOILER FILLED STAR WARS REVIEW - I really mean it!

The headline has made it obvious but I’ll say it here again and leave a whole bunch of spaces after I do: this review is going to be FILLED with spoilers. If you haven’t seen the movie, DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER. SPOILERS AHEAD SPOILERS AHEAD SPOILERS AHEAD. I am going to discuss MANY surprises that occur in the movie…

Why can't I post pictures?

So I had a nice thing all typed up - but when I tried to add pics taken from my phone, they all get copied in sideways, even though they’re right way up on my pc.

Why you should NEVER shop at Sears... Why you should NEVER shop at Sears...

I admit it. I should have known better. I’ve been through this before and I KNOW Sears sucks. I just knew they wouldn’t be able to get this nonsense right. Because...you know....SEARS.

Wrestlemania - all about the old guys Wrestlemania - all about the old guys

First of all - yes, professional wrestling is scripted. The tables have supports removed, the ladders are pre-broken etc etc and so on. I would never go so far as to call it fake - these guys are still amazing athletes. They take some major bumps and come back for more. But that's not what this article is about -…

Why being "tethered" to a smartphone is AMAZING Why being "tethered" to a smartphone is AMAZING

So I was reading Gizmodo a little earlier today and came across this article about a 20 something who still doesn't carry a smartphone:

Went to the VZ store early, and boy am I tired - got a phone tho Went to the VZ store early, and boy am I tired - got a phone tho

Full review to come...but yes, I'm that idiot who's up at pre 4AM and ready to head over there for a 4 hour wait until the store opens. Long story relatively short, several "important" types want to see the 6 plus to decide if they want that or the smaller 6. Despite my reassurances that they do NOT want the larger…

Shrimpfest - what the hell is wrong with us? Shrimpfest - what the hell is wrong with us?

See those dark storm clouds over head? They're the sign of a coming armageddon...and that armageddon is known as the all-you-can-jam-in-your-mouthhole delight that is shrimpfest. Now this would be a great time for me to mention I hate Red Lobster. Red Lobster is to seafood what KFC is to fried chicken - sure, it'll…

What it's like to ride a motorcycle in a world of cars... What it's like to ride a motorcycle in a world of cars...

So as summer is upon us, I've been taking the opportunity to get out on my bike as often as possible. I've ridden to and from work on any days the weather was anything other than rainy as hell, I've ridden down the shore, I've found new raw bars to visit and ridden to them...in short, I've already put in several…

I'm a St. Jude's Warrior, and here's why... I'm a St. Jude's Warrior, and here's why...

So as many of you know (At least those who read my ramblings about such things), I'm on a journey - a journey to bring myself to better health, to make my life a better thing to live, and to generally be a happier person. In the last few months I've given up smoking, taken up running, dropped a couple of pounds, and…

IE updated, even for users of XP IE updated, even for users of XP

OK so I guess I now have to withdraw my premature criticism where I said that it seemed "highly suspicious" that Microsoft found their huge IE flaw a couple of short weeks after the "EOL" for XP. But it looks like MS is doing right, even by XP users, and have released the fix to them.

The cheesiest couple's retreat...EVER The cheesiest couple's retreat...EVER

So I'm dating a girl from the greater Cleveland area. As such, she was not "in the know" about the cheesiness of Poconos resorts, and was fascinated by my description of things like the "Beautiful Mt.Airy Lodge" commercials that I remembered as a child. She was even more into the idea that there are…

Kinja acting wonky for anyone else? Kinja acting wonky for anyone else?

Seems that now when I post a response to a comment, it just disappears - and the only way I can see if it actually posted or not is to go into my profile and check for my posts???

My weekend with the VRod muscle My weekend with the VRod muscle

So, as some of you may recall, I posted awhile ago about getting a motorcycle after not having been on one in many years. I did so, and have been incredibly super duper happy with it. With that having been said, I recently traveled to Florida for work and lopped a couple of vacation days on the end, and decided to…

Why are my giz comments "Greyed out" again???

Don't get it - been a loyal commenter for a lot of years and my comments have been "followed" or whatever since this kinja system came around...

So I just jumped to android and boy will my arms be tired! So I just jumped to android and boy will my arms be tired!

Alright, I admit it, I should have known what I was getting into. I bought the HTC One Max, a phone that every single article says is good but way too friggin big. I didn't believe them. I should have. Check out the above pic - thats an iphone 5s looking like a toy in front of this beast.

Nike fuelband SE - designed for the couch potato in your life Nike fuelband SE - designed for the couch potato in your life

So as part of my New Years "lets not die too soon" resolutions, I've vowed to get into somewhat better shape, and am starting to train for my first 5K. As a non-runner, but someone who has lost a good amount of weight over the last couple years (Admittedly putting some back on in the last few months) I feel it's a…

Grand Street - why I signed up and why I "unsigned" up Grand Street - why I signed up and why I "unsigned" up

So when I first heard about grand street it seemed like a really cool concept of a website. A site designed for tech lovers looking for stuff that was unusual and generally speaking awesome. And initially I kinda thought that's what it was...until I noticed that after several months I'd yet to see a single thing I…

So, did we all fall in love with "Her"? So, did we all fall in love with "Her"?

So I went out last night and saw "her", the Spike Jonze movie about a man who has fallen in love with his digital assistant. An interesting concept to be sure, and a movie that I'd been looking forward to seeing for quite some time. Did it live up to my expectations? Yes...and no. There may be some spoilers ahead,…

Torrenting movies, and how I would justify pirating Torrenting movies, and how I would justify pirating

So this story isn't about me. Me, I wouldn't pirate movies. It's wrong, it's stealing, and it can result in all kinds of fines from nasty governmental agencies who frown upon such things. So take this article as theoretical rather than practical. The individual in this article is purely fictional, names have been…

Is a dock that works with a case REALLY too much to ask? Is a dock that works with a case REALLY too much to ask?

OK I admit it. I'm lazy. I like being able to plop my iphone into a dock to charge it up instead of having to, you know, pick up a cable and put it into the bottom of the phone. I openly admit, this is the very definition of a first world problem but...would it REALLY have been so hard to make that plug 1/16 of an…
