  • New Adagio Tea Sampler

    On Friday, I received an email from Adagio Teas featuring a holiday sampler. The sampler consists of six different looseleaf teas: candy apple, candy cane, chestnut, cranberry, gingerbread, and pumpkin spice — for only $11. I buy! In fact, for that price I bought an extra one as a gift for my dad. After all,…

  • For Those About to Blog, We Salute You

    If you checked into the site this weekend, you might have noticed redshift’s post about someone who copied and pasted an entire article from this site and copied it onto their weblog. A couple of hours after he posted it, we found a couple of other people who had also copied entire articles from this…

  • The Deep End

    Over the past couple of days I have found it difficult to write you any sort of worthy entry because something has been weighing heavily upon my mind. Unfortunately, in a case like this, I can’t write anything else until I get it off my chest. It’s creative blockage of sorts quite similar to constipation,…

  • New Abridged Script – Lord of War

    The Editing Room has added a new abridged script for Lord of War, alleging that this movie had some sort of plot. Who knew?

  • Canadian Thanksgiving Help

    In an earlier post, I noted that when we got closer to Canadian Thanksgiving, we’d start talking turkey. Really, I had every intention of doing so. But then a couple of weeks went by and – Oops, Canadian Thanksgiving is next week. I love talking food. In fact, it is my secret ambition to become…

  • Wet Shaving, or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Blade

    Let’s take a little test, shall we? Don’t worry, you’ll like it. Do you enjoy waking up in the morning? Are you a discerning gentleman who enjoys the good things in life? When you go into work, do you look like you’ve shaved with… … a chainsaw? … a wet badger? … nothing? (au naturale)…

  • Important Dates

    Over the next couple of months there are some important things happening. Basically, it’s my chance to tell you what awesome books and games are being released, as well as some holidays and their history – for both U.S. and Canada (Annual Bathtub Races!). I don’t really have a beat on what’s happening for movies…

  • International “Talk Like A Pirate Day”

    Today is International “Talk Like A Pirate Day”! Hopefully I’m not the only person who finds this particularly lame. Apparently, a couple of really bored guys decided it would be cool if the entire world and all the people in it had a designated day for people everywhere to talk like a pirate. This is…

  • Cheap Entertainment

    For the first time in over a decade, I have returned to school. While I hold a full-time job, I am taking two classes at the local community college. Were it not for my company’s tuition reimbursement program, I would have had second thoughts about attending due to the expense. The last time I had…
