Help for the Fashion Challenged

February 24, 2011

I’m a big believer in experimenting with your look. That’s why I didn’t cut my hair for a year and a half.

Note: Actually, I’ve never cut my hair, but you know what I’m talking about.

Another Note: I’m the guy to the left in that picture. The guy on the right doesn’t have to worry about his hair at all. (But he does have a sweet Web series).

I always assumed I would let it grow until I was sick of it or until the alliance partner put her foot down. Oddly enough, that day never came. Despite how gross it was in the hot Nicaraguan sun, what a pain it was to dry, or how much it drove my frenemy Kerry nuts I still kinda liked it.

Yet Another Note: Truthfully, I loved how much Kerry hated it.

The Single Greatest Thing at NY Toy Fair 2011

February 13, 2011

Click to Enlarge

So, after walking up and down the halls of New York’s Javits Center for twelve straight hours, I’m comfortable in saying that the greatest new find wasn’t on a shelf or in a cabinet…it’s was buried in a Kotobukiya brochure.

Now, I’m not sure how a Ghostbusters jumpsuit would get so horribly mangled, but I’m sure they have some clever backstory.

And yes, I may have only been half kidding about that Sassy “Ghostbusters” Costume article a while ago…

One Reason Why ‘Glee’ Doesn’t Annoy the Crap Out of Me

February 9, 2011

WordPress has a function that allows you to see the search terms people have used to find your site. For the past seven days, this is what my top ten list has looked like…

1. Reasons Why Glee Is Rubbish
2. Marshmallow Woman
3. Marshmallow Sailor
4. Senor Chang Elf
5. Stay Puft
6. Glee Is Rubbish
7. Glee Annoys Me
8. Glee Club Sucks
9. Glee Is Crap
10. Glee Crap

The reason for ‘Glee’s’ multiple showings on this list is clearly the piece I wrote entitled ‘Seven Reasons Why ‘Glee’ Annoys the Crap Out of Me.’

Now, while I don’t think ‘Glee’ has done much to alleviate my concerns I will give them credit for one thing; every now and then they do show you something you’ve never seen before.

Food Review: Wells Banana Bread Beer

February 4, 2011

“I like ketchup, I like milk. You put ketchup in milk? I don’t like it.” – Nathan Trate

That was the first quote that popped into my head when I saw a four pack of Wells Banana Bread Beer in the fridge at my local liquor store.

I do have a rule, however,  that I will try anything that’s an actual food. By that I mean, if some group of people somewhere actually eats something, I’ll give it a try. If you just give me some random piece of crap, I’ll pass. It’s like “Survivor.” They may eat gross things, but they’re gross things that are eaten by people who live in that area. Maybe that’s why I like the show so much.

Note: That’s a lie, the reason I like “Survivor” so much is because I’m convinced I could win. I get along with most people, have a knack for strategy, and am not afraid to get my hands dirty. Watch your back, Richard Hatch. (more…)

Scenes from a Barnes and Noble

February 1, 2011

My alliance partner and I were going over some business matters at the local Barnes and Noble when we noticed a stack of books (pictured to the left) on the table next to us.

It’s hard to tell from my crappy camera phone, but the titles included “Toxic Men,” “Emotional Freedom,” “The One-Way Relationship,” and “Why Does He Do That?” Never before had such a selection of titles painted such a clear picture of the mood the person must’ve been in who was reading them.

Is it wrong for me to judge this book (reader) based on their covers? Probably.

After all, I’d hate for anyone to make judgments on me based on the book I was thumbing through…
