Last year on a Thursday night, I was at a friends house having a couple meatball subs after we got home from a baseball game. We were talking, relaxing, and having a good time when I realized that it was way past 8:00. Then it was panic time. The NFL draft was on and we were gorging ourselves on food. What was wrong with us? We were missing out on the future of the NFL! We frantically turned on the television in time for the 10th pick. We saw that Eric Fisher, Luke Joeckel, and Tavon Austin were off the board as expected, and some guy named Barkevious Mingo went to the Browns and ended his career. The pick is in...the Tennesee...

Dear Sven, I totally dig that you're reading the site from Sweden. Welcome! I have to say that, in general, women like guys with accents. However, let me be entirely honest about something: I've never met anyone from Sweden, nor do I know what a Swedish accent actually sounds like. I'm sure it's not true, but my closest approximation has to be the Muppets' own Swedish Chef: Yikes. But while British, French, Spanish, Italian, and even Southern US accents each have a fairly large female fanbase here in the States, I wouldn't necessarily count Sweden out just yet. Accents aren't only attractive because of the way they sound. They... Read More
It’s time again for another installment of the Comic Book Rookie! Sorry about taking March off, the reasons were two-fold: 1) I had some kind of monkey pox, SARS, or Ebola the last week when I usually write these up, and 2) the only thing of note in March was the merciful ending of the title TALON from DC Comics. What started out with such great presence was soon tossed from writer to writer and quickly went down hill. The last 4 issues were unreadable. Now in April we have a lot of new titles #1 issues and some others that you need to check out. So let's get started: First we have a new title from Boom Comics called Dead Letters, which... Read More

Are you looking for some new music? Do you have a long car trip planned with your wife or girlfriend this summer? Well, then here is some music that you can both enjoy: Christina Perri. Christina Perri is a singer and songwriter from Philadelphia. The daughter of hairdressers (whom she describes as “not musical, though my mom can whistle in many octaves”), Perri first sang in public at her Holy Communion at age six. Piano lessons began at age 8, but her piano teacher “fired” her (as she puts it), because “I would change the endings to the songs when I didn’t like the way they were written.” Eventually, Perri picked up a...

About five years ago, a video began circulating on the internet of what appears to be a Middle Eastern man firing a gun, falling backwards from the recoil, and breaking a glass door. Then he says something that sounds like "Willy Bob". That was the only part of the video I ever saw, and was probably emailed to me at least 30 times. In honor of Throwback Friday, I was going to post that video but decided to do a little bit of research instead. I found out something about both the gun and the video. First things first, take a look at the viral video: Now, that's a pretty funny video. But it went viral based on some false... Read More
