Movies That Should Have Been Awesome, But Sucked

One of the best reasons to see a movie in the theater (and subsequently pay exorbitant amounts of money for tickets and snacks and drinks and sometimes fancy 3-D glasses) is arriving early enough to catch the new trailers.  Naturally, this is a perfect time to exercise one’s expert movie-judging skills (“Oh, that’s gonna rule.”), […]

Plays on Names – Mr. T and Ice T.

Browser Wars

While I think Firefox is getting a bad deal in this picture, I love, love, love the fact that IE is over in the corner eating glue.  And he has to wear a helmet.  Because he gets into accidents all the time.  Bumps into stuff…you know.  And Opera and Safari aren’t even there.  They don’t […]
