Comic Con time!

As most of you know by now if you have read anything I have posted, I am a massively unabashed dork. If something has anything to do with my favorite movies, TV shows or toys from my youth I am in 100%. My wife still gets puzzled when I bring home new things (see toys,…

Top 5 Beers of All Time – #thereisnospoonfriday

This week’s #thereisnospoonfriday is thirsty. Thirsty for a great beer. I am not much of a wine guy, but definitely can enjoy a good glass (or several) every now and then. I am definitely not a hard alcohol type either – too many tough nights in college with Tequila or Vodka has kept me away…

What to do when you immediately recognize your new job is a bad fit

Growing up, I was a big cereal kid – and I LOVED me some Cocoa Pebbles. Sweet, delicious (definitely not nutritious) and the chocolate milk action as you ate it was the topper. I would eat that stuff morning, noon and night if my parents would have let me. But yet, as much as I…

When I was a kid I dreamed of being a recruiter (said no one ever)

A year ago, I left one of the best jobs I ever had to follow my passion. I had grown tired of the role I was in and the path I was on. Yes – I could go take a bigger title with more money at a different company – but that sounded awful to…

Top 10 Sequels of All Time – #thereisnospoonfriday

This week’s release of Terminator Genisys (what – were they afraid to piss off Phil Collins?) had me thinking about sequels. I admit, despite the horrific reviews this new Terminator is getting, I am still going to see it. My hopes are not high, but I am a sucker for the nostalgia of revisiting movies…

The Top 5 Comedians of All Time – #thereisnospoonfriday

Last week’s post, The Top 5 Comedies of All Time sure got a lot of heated debates going. I love when that happens – and true to form I was taken to task for forgetting to include some really great movies. This, my friends, is why I play the game. I love when readers geek…
