Review: The Internet Ruined My Life

After reading (and reviewing) So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed, I’ve continued to be interested in the topic of public shaming.  I was happy to see that others were interested in the topic as well, and that Syfy was actually creating a series called The Internet Ruined My Life.  Unfortunately, in trying to


Game Review: Futurama: Game Of Drones

Sometime last year it was announced that a Futurama mobile game was on the way.  Being a huge fan of Futurama, I was very excited about this. While I had never personally played The Simpsons: Tapped Out, I had seen it in action, and was very interested in playing a Futurama game


Book Review: So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed

With the whole Holly Jones/Killroys story still unfolding over public media and right here in Indianapolis, I figured this is a prime time to review a book I read a few months back called So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed.  The author, Jon Ronson was motivated to research the topic and write this


Merry Christmas With Love: My Favorite Gift Ever Given

Being raised Jewish, even at the age of 35, Christmas still seems like a very foreign concept to me.  However, there is one beautiful Christmas song that I will have a strong connection with forever, Merry Christmas With Love.  Though it was apparently made famous by Clay Aiken in 2004, the song


Cards Against Humanity: Eight Sensible Gifts For Hanukkah: Nights 1 – 3

It’s that time of year again, and Cards Against Humanity is back with another (according to them, the last they are doing) gift program.  This year we get the Eight Sensible Gifts For Hanukkah.  Being born and raised Jewish myself, I can confirm that CAH went all out with every stereotypical Jewish humor


Advance Review: Bridge Of Spies

Spoiler-Free!   On Monday evening, I saw an advance screening of the new Steven Spielberg/Tom Hanks movie, Bridge Of Spies.  There were two things that really surprised me about this screening. Almost no one was there.  Advance screening are usually popular events, yet the theater was maybe half-full at most. The thing


Some Thoughts On The Muppets

I eagerly watched the premiere of The Muppets last week, along with many other people.  I’ve been surprised at the backlash the show has received.  Reviewers are claiming the show is too mature, perverted, and that this incarnation of The Muppets is “raping their childhood.”  Anyone crying out things like this likely


The Zombie Run 2015: Another Awful Experience

If you do not recall, last year I was supposed to participate in The Zombie Run.  This, however, did not happen, and I went through an awful customer service experience with this run, and their parent company, Human Movement Management, which you can read all about HERE. The Zombie Run issues no


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


Review: Ant-Man (Spoiler-Free)

Ant-Man is possibly Marvel’s biggest gamble to date.  Guardians of the Galaxy had that honor last year, and went on to become one of the most beloved movies in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe).  Even though it contained a group of characters the mainstream audience was not the most familiar with, it
