Leave Big Bird Out of It

Ah, Facebook. The place where I go to send party invites, see family photos, and read psychotic political rants. We all have that one friend from college, that crazy uncle, or that old roommate who seizes hold of the digital soap box that is the Internet and shares their very own special flavor of Kool-Aid […]

Please Don’t Waste These People

I understand that war is a reality of human history, but I can’t help but be disturbed by how wasteful it is. War consists of massive amounts of time, human capital, and resources being destroyed.

Nit Picking Nerd

Yes, that’s me. I saw Sherlock Holmes tonight and it was incredibly entertaining, well written, well directed, and well acted. The bromantic chemistry between Jude Law and Robert Downey, Jr. felt genuine, and the Asberger’s-type take on Holmes’ genius and quirks really worked. The chick was useless except for the purposes of setting up a […]
