2014 Holiday Geek Gift Guide

Another year has passed and Black Friday is quickly approaching, so here we are again with a new Holiday Geek Gift Guide. My first list was created in 2004 (yay, 10 year anniversary post!) to help with my own gift shopping for friends and family. Because of my interest in technology and gadgets (and general […]

Online Spirograph

Remember the Spirograph? Those odd little notched pieces of plastic that you used to make swirly drawings. I know I had one or two of them growing up. Like all of us, I’m sure you wished that you could continue to make those swirls yet today without digging through your parents’ attic to find your […]

Strongbad is back!

After a four-year absence, Strongbad is back in a new Homestar Runner video. The new video is as random as the rest. It’s a Strongbad rap about the fisheye lense. Hopefully this is a sign of more to come. Just me and Coach Z givin the pyorple what they want: http://t.co/bcsZJqHLaY http://t.co/ATlAYVInPU — Strong Bad […]

Mentos Explosions in Slow Motion

You know I can’t get enough of these Mentos videos… My favorite part is the close-up shot of the actual Mentos reacting to the Diet Coke. BUBBLES!!!

Getting Nolstalgic Over the Danger Sidekick

Chris DeSalvo recently posted a great article, The future that everyone forgot: Some of the work we did at Danger. The article covers the history of Danger, the company that created the Sidekick. It might seem a bit odd to get nostalgic about a phone that I didn’t own, but that period he writes about was […]

Goat Simulator

This is a real game, not some joke from The Onion. The premise of the game is exactly what you’d expect. You run around as a goat causing mischief, doing goat things… hilarity ensues. You can pre-order it at their site. It’s coming to Steam on April 1st (April Fools joke?). I’m very tempted to […]

DIY: Tailgate Misting Station

We’re a few weeks into football season this year and the first two game were scorchers. Usually games in the beginning of September can be a bit warm, but seemed even more-so this year with temps around 90 degrees. A dinner conversation the week before the first game prompted me to look into creating a […]

Google Chromecast

When Google announced the Chromecast a few weeks back, I got online and ordered one. It was originally going to be a gift, but after playing with it, I decided to hold onto it. At only $35.00, I’m not out much (gift or otherwise). It’s a pretty nice device. It comes in a nice little […]

Some New(ish) Mentos Flavors

I’ve actually had these new flavors sitting around for a few months and haven’t gotten around to posting them until now. The first two, Duo and Lakrits Mint were found in the US at a World Market store. The Duo flavor is a strawberry shell with a lime center and works pretty well together. The […]
