No matter what, I will write.

You’ve probably noticed that I haven’t been writing as much this month. I thought about waiting until December and then posting about how I was boycotting blogging because I think National Blog Post Month/National Novel Writing Month are ridiculously stupid. I refuse to justify either phrase’s stupid abbreviation by writing them down.

App Review: Songza

I tend to go through phases where I just want to find some new apps. I’ll go through the “recommended” and “popular” categories in the app store to see what I can find. Most of the time, I’ll use them once or twice and then they’ll sit until I do a cleanup

Mike Tyson Mysteries: Better In Theory

When the first trailer for Mike Tyson Mysteries hit the internet, I was extremely excited for it.  Completely out of context clips with Tyson, Jim Rash as a ghost, and Norm MacDonald as a talking pigeon had me on the floor laughing.  When put into context of an actual episode, it does
