  • What I’ve Been Doing 30 April 2012 [FB/IB/F/BT/GO]

    I did a lot more with this week than I thought I would have time for considering how much I played The Old Republic and how late I was getting home for a lot of the week. Fez gets special mention at the top of this article for completely immersing me in its world. Everything […]

  • The 100 Greatest Qutoes From The Wire [IB/ER]

    If you haven’t seen The Wire, this obviously spoils the 100 best lines from the show. Those of you who have, this right here is pure gold.

  • Mad Men S5E5 “Far Away Places” [IB]

    Now that was something. Mad Men does this kind of thing from time to time, but rarely is it done this well. Everything about it just felt so surreal and amazing to behold. I know I’m firmly in this show’s pocket, but I really feel like everything in this episode worked…and quite well. The flagship […]

  • What I’ve Been Doing 23 April 2012 [FB/IB/F/BT/GO]

    It was a nice, lazy, fun weekend full of baseball, movies, and video games. Who could complain? Movies The Cabin in the Woods – If you think for a second you want to see this movie, you probably shouldn’t read anything about it. Those of you who don’t, well I thought it was an interesting […]

  • Mad Men S5E4: “Signal 30” [IB]

    Guys, seriously, how great was that episode? Pete is a weaselly, slimy character, but he’s oftentimes the most interesting character on the screen after Don. He’s a guy who wants it all, but cannot recognize when he’s got it. More importantly, Pete Campbell can never have it all because he is so aggressively unlikeable. Driver’s […]

  • Common Historical Misconceptions [ER]

    Think you know about Vikings, Lady Godiva, or Napoleon? Think again! Unless you already know about these misconceptions. Then you don’t have to think again.

  • What I’ve Been Doing 16 April 2012 [FB/IB/F/BT/GO]

    I didn’t do much this week, but cut me some slack, man! I was in Las Vegas! Movies Nope TV Mad Men – My thoughts on the last episode are here, but it’s a safe bet to say that I love this show and this season has been great so far. Books Ha! Nope. Should […]

  • Joel McHale’s 3DS Commercial [ER]

    It’s a little too on the money to be hilarious, but I still enjoyed it.

  • The Besties Hit PAX East [GO/ER]

    “Shouldn’t the world’s best friends choose the world’s best game?” I gotta admit, it took me a while to get with The Besties podcast, but now that I recognize how truly ridiculous and hilarious it is I’m all about it. Remember, they’re not really there to have legitimate debate about the merits of the games […]

  • Mad Men S5E03: “Mystery Date” [IB]

    You know what’s my favorite thing about Mad Men? Even when it’s dead serious or surreal it’s not above brilliant jokes. I want to hit on the lighter moments first, because this episode was very dark and violent. Moment numero uno has to be the scene with Peggy and Sterling. It’s just perfect to see […]
