That’s me standing on top of my car blocking the loading dock of my employer’s parking lot. I was photographing the sidewalk for a book cover I designed. (The photo shown above was taken just for fun.) I was rather surprised at the flimsy build of automobiles today. I didn’t do any damage to my […]

hockey cards are boring

hockey cards are boring

There’s not much variation in the action shots found on most hockey cards. This observation came about doing some ebay searching.

If you’re looking to supplant a computer for basic tasks like email and internet, then you’re better off with the iPad. The Fire is […]

Darth Vader latch hook rug critique

My sister-in-law made a Facebook post about the popularity of latch hook rugs in the late ’70s and early ’80s. I thought it would be funny to find a Darth Vader latch hook rug and sure enough there was a whole series of Star Wars latch hook rugs. The “Star Wars Collectors Archive” has images […]

customized McRib

customized McRib

I was going to recommend not going out during lunchtime and eating a McDonalds McRib and then returning to your desk and eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I did that and I’m not happy right now. I was looking up photos of McRibs to do a “McRib + PBJ = sad face” photo […]
