Cutting the cheese since 1996

Everyday is a crap shoot

Have you ever noticed how the first song you hear is the song stuck in your head all day? That seems to be my problem.   Read More →

You want me to what?!

Sometimes, as a parent, I just don't know what to do. Today, the day when important clients drove hundreds of miles into the office for the big meeting, I got a call from the wife. Our son, after getting into a scuffle with another kid over, apparently, a pencil, told the teacher, "Go #!@% yourself."   Read More →

Will the real prostitute please stand up?

I'm not sure whether to file this under hypocrisy or stupidity or what. I signed up with an advertising affiliate network to place some banner ads on the site. Thinking I'm most willing to support advertisers who I myself have purchased from in the past, or who offer products or services that align with my own personal views, I applied to about a half-dozen dozen companies, all promising a "review" of my site.   Read More →

Progress Report

I guess it's only fair I give a little update as to what's been going on at First, you might have noticed we technically have two sites right now.

Kung fu is like porn

I can't say I've ever been a big fan of the martial arts genre, particularly the Hong Kong films. Much like Godzilla, they have production values and an attitude all their own that can be a little off-putting to those not in on the joke. I've seen some Hong Kong films — yes, even Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon — so I don't want anyone to think I'm dismissing them out of hand. Not at all.   Read More →

RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Tragedy in Happyland

Wouldn't you know it? You place paths, fences, everything needed to keep your guests safe, and still they insist on wandering where they don't belong. Your IQ is probably in the double digits if you find yourself standing on ROLLER COASTER TRACKS in the middle of an AMUSEMENT PARK. Duh. Maybe a roller coaster's going to come screaming through here any second.   Read More →
