Podcasts are consuming my life!

Zero items = I don't know what to listen to!

I almost NEVER listen to music anymore.  My 64 gig iphone has about 28 gigs of music on it, and my collection is substantially larger than that.  However, for the last 5 or 6 years, my addiction to podcasts has grown so much, that I can rarely keep up with all my weekly (and some […]

Veronica Mars: How did I miss this show for so long?

The main cast of Veronica Mars (season 3)

NOTE: This overall review of Veronica Mars the series and movie is spoiler-free, touching briefly on main story arcs, but going into no specific details.   On March 22nd, in an effort to take more advantage of my Amazon Prime account, I decided to pick a tv show I’d never watched and start going through […]

So when I saw the retired skater awards at last year’s Circle City Derby Girls’ end of season party, I was moved. These homemade, highly personalized trophies are the perfect […]

Around Indy: Game Paradise

Just one of the game shelves.

Yesterday (April 5) was the second annual International Tabletop Day, a day designated to celebrate analog gaming.

Oh the mysterious cloud. It’s that magical place where the Google and Dropbox fairies live. That place where nothing can go wrong (except when it does). And your data is safe (except when it’s not). Now, I love my cloud services. My Google Music allows me to listen wherever/whenever. Dropbox has backups of my eBooks. […]
