It’s Not Magic

It’s an illusion! At least, that’s what Doug Henning would say. Hey, look, it’s been a rough month.  What with the elections, the holiday and NaNoWriMo, you’ve had a lot going on.  I mean, a lot. No matter who you wanted to win the Presidential Elections this year, the campaign has been brutal.  And, frankly, […]

Art History – Photography Style

Browse classic photographic artists and be inspired. Or, just waste time. Whichever suits you, it doesn’t matter to me, unless you’re wasting time at my office. And, really, even then I don’t care as long as you’re not wasting my time.  In any case, browsing photography is one of my favorite ways to kill a […]

The Luckiest Thing

That’s right, today is Friday the Thirteenth. As I’ve said before, I’m not really a superstitious kind of guy. Not really. But, I’ve known a lot of people who are. When I worked in the hotel industry, I actually had sold room 666 to someone not from a Judeo-Christian background, until a co-worker saw it […]

New Year’s Resolutions

So, here we are, the day after Christmas and just around the corner is New Year’s Eve. I don’t put much stock in New Year’s Resolutions any more, since 40+ years of experience tells me that they’re almost never kept.  But, that still doesn’t mean I won’t encourage you, gentle readers, to make some resolutions […]

Superstitious Friday

Yes, today is Friday the Thirteenth. I’m not really a superstitious kind of guy.  Not really.  But, I’ve known a lot of people who are.  When I worked in the hotel industry, I once managed to “sell” room 666 to someone not from a Judeo-Christian background, until a co-worker saw it and made a face.  […]

Resolution Generator

Christmas is over and the New Year looms near! Traditionally, this time of year is when we review our lives and find fault with everything we didn’t accomplish in the preceding year, then make ridiculous promises to ourselves about how we’re going to do better in the coming year.  We call them “New Year’s Resolutions”, […]

Random Resolutions, Again

So, those of you familiar with my blog will recognize my annual New Year’s Resolutions post. Yes, I’m pretty shameless about it, but, well, it was one of the earlier things I programmed and I still find it amusing and the New Year will fast be upon us.   Besides, this is fun and so many […]

Under Costumes

What do  you wear under your Halloween costumes? So, yeah, Halloween is just around the corner and that has me thinking about costumes.  Well, to be honest, costumes for adults, because, let’s face it, in all our repressed, Puritanical, American, adult bodies, live crazy hedonists that just want to dress up in silly, or sexy, […]

Geek’s Guide to New York

I seem to be fixated on New York this month! There are a lot of geeky landmarks in New York City.  From movies like Ghostbusters to comic books like the Fantastic Four to movies about comic books, there are a lot of references made to the Big Apple.  If you’re a geek and plan on […]

Halloween LEGO Creations

Well, Halloween is just around the corner, if you aren’t celebrating already. I could go on at length about the historical and cultural phenomena that is Halloween, but, really, if you cared about that, you’d just go to Wikipedia. So, no, instead, I’ll just share a quick fun link to some Halloween LEGO creations over […]
