Building an Entryway (and a Bench!)

My entry way has been kind of bland since we moved in. It had the same cheap console table we bought from Target when we moved into our first house (pro tip: changing the handles on those makes them look so much nicer). And that was it. This wouldn’t be so bad,


Review: Pixels

I just looked it up, and the last Adam Sandler comedy I truly liked was released a month after I graduated from high school (Big Daddy).  While he has delivered a couple of surprisingly solid dramatic performances since then (Punch Drunk Love, Reign Over Me), Sandler has never been able to recapture


We Watched 50 Shades of Grey So You Don’t Have To (Spoilers)

Claire and I hold the belief that if you want to mock something, you must have read/watched/played it first. It’s why she’s read all the Twilight books and why I (attempted) to watch the movie. With this in mind, we poured some bourbon on Friday night and watched the 50 Shades of

Finding Your Tribe

I have a confession to make. Every year I feel more and more of a disconnect from geek culture. Which is odd since it’s a community I’ve felt a bond with since I ran around in my bathrobe pretending to be Princess Leia. And got mockingly called “computer girl” throughout school (who’s


Girl Talk: The Diva Cup

Alright boys, some of you might want to check out the archives today. Because today, we’re talking about periods. You’ve been warned. Period news has been coming across my social media feeds lately. Some of the stories are inspirational, like getting feminine hygiene products to women in countries where they can be


Apps Have Made Us All OK With DRM

Apple’s streaming music subscription service has finally been announced (I’ve been waiting for this since they acquired Beats a little over a year ago). As I got to the bottom of that article, I saw a link to an article entitled Apple Music and the terrible return of DRM. Now, I think this article unfairly
