I’m not cursing, I swear (ha). It’s just an abbreviation of the name of an event in which I took part today... BITCHSTERDAM!!!
Nope. No surprise here whatsoever…
The best thing about Black Friday? It’s pretty much the one day of the year when EVERY SINGLE website or e-commerce retailer you’ve ever subscribed to willingly (or been subscribed to unwillingly) contacts you.
In 2011, I got back into comic books for about the bajillionth time in my life but this was the one that stuck. I’ve stayed fairly consistent for 12.5 years now.
While perusing Instagram, I discovered an online service that allows you to customize a Peanuts-inspired Christmas ornament.
After losing last week and killing my perfect record and putting me in a tie for first place based on record (I have more points overall, so I was in true first), my fantasy football team at work came back in a pretty big way and won this week.
And just like that… my season-starting seven-game win streak that has kept me at the top of my work fantasy football league all season has come to an end.
I have seen some interesting methods which advertisers have used to lure people into downloading their apps.
I was checking out my fantasy football (U.S.) team and noticed something weird...
I absolutely adore Google Chrome browser tab groups. I mean, it was pretty revolutionary when they introduced browser tabs way back whenever, but to then build on that by having browser tab groups where you can create a master tab with sub-tabs in them? I love being able to keep multiple tabs open that are related to a project and then group them under a client/project name. It has made my work life so much more manageable.
Not that I actually expect to score any, but I have officially registered through Ticketmaster for the chance to get in an early queue to buy tickets to Olivia Rodrigo’s concert at United Center in Chicago next March 19.
Well this is a new one…
Nathan tried out that Simpsons filter in TikTok after he saw mine.
Kids, this is why AI cannot be trusted. Check out how they think I’d look as a Simpsons character…
My fantasy football league at work held their draft tonight. It’s yet another year of me proving I have no idea what I’m doing.
With the purchase of our Rogue, we also received a free trial of a mobile hotspot in our car via AT&T. And, man, does AT&T wanna sell me on it. I get emails every few days reminding me to activate the trial.
When I logged in to Typepad tonight to check on some posts and I saw a weird spike in my daily page view stats…
Less than a year ago, Disney+ bumped up the cost of their ad-free streaming from $6.99 for those of us early adopters to $10.99 per month. Two months ago, they decided to nix a ton of their original content, by completely removing it from their service, including a handful of shows and films that we all enjoyed watching. Today, the House o' Mouse announced another rate hike, from $10.99 to $13.99 making it just a penny over double the cost that it was when we signed up.
Because I’m a lover and figure if I can spend all day going down a Wikipedia rabbit hole (I have… many times), I may as well thank them the right way.
11:55 at night, perusing Instagram Reels, finding this video, cackling like a mad mother effer and nearly waking up your wife and son.
When you read these two blog titles chronologically (bottom first), you’d swear Dave2 and I planned this all out.
My wife just informed me that the wait for the Mario Kart 3D ride at Universal Studios Hollywood is only about 75 minutes!
The only thing that would make this more true is if he was aiming his iPhone at the skies to take pictures of the funnel clouds.
Guess what... my blog can legally vote as of today! Yup, I've been on the Typepad platform for 18 years now since after making the choice to ditch my manually-coded HTML weblog that I'd been running since 1998 (the contents of which I migrated here about a decade or so ago).
My buddy Abe shared a video with me yesterday featuring a mashup between KISS; Earth, Wind & Fire; and Wild Cherry and it was... glorious.
Found this on Instagram…
I haven’t posted since May 17. We went on vacation on the 18th out to San Francisco, Berkeley, and Hollywood and just got back today.
As a diehard Gravity Falls fan, I wholly approve of the creativity, time, and money spent creating this musical masterpiece.
I just received an email from Apple that the cost for an annual subscription to Apple TV+ is going to increase from $49.99 to $69.
We have our Internet back!!!
It’s amazing these days the level of disarray your life delves to when you lose that oh-so-precious connection to the internet.
Don’t you just hate when you swore that you posted everyday and then you go back just to verify because you’re paranoid and a completist like that only to discover you missed a day on which you’re certain you wrote something but you cannot find it for the life of you?
Whoever created the .webp image format needs to be shot and hung by… whatever they have available to be hung from painfully.
While I truly wish there was much more detail to this video -- there are way too many effectively pre-fab elements just lowered into place without us being able to see them being made as well -- it's still a ridiculously interesting opportunity to watch a ridiculously large cruise ship being built in stop motion (I also wish there was a timer on it so you can see how many days, weeks, months, years, elapse).
reCAPTCHAs -- yanno, those annoying things where you have to verify you're a human being by picking out pictures of street lights or mountains that don't work half the time and you have to do a second... or a third... or a fourth... just to make a form send from a webpage -- are dumb.
Oh yeah, let’s just click on this link, shall we?
