  • Playing With Blocks

    I may have a problem and it’s in the form of Mega Bloks World of Warcraft sets. The picture above is from last week when my wife went out of town and I decided to keep myself occupied. I now have 13 of the World of Warcraft sets and I have no idea how many I’m missing. I believe they’re discontinuing this line which makes me sad and simultaneously spurs me to buy them all before they’re all gone.

  • Spring Upgrades For The Mini 8ight

    Spring is here (or so the calendar says) and it’s time for me to slip back into my RC hobby. What? You thought that was over? I guess it’s not. Last year I had problems with the Losi Mini 8ight losing contact with the radio and smashing into things. I called Losi but the best they could offer was to have me ship the car and radio back to them. With today’s shipping prices?

  • Revisiting My Black n’ Red Review

    Based on the search terms used to find this site, a lot of you are looking for opinions about Black n’ Red notebooks. Either that or there’s some other Black n’ Red that I don’t know about. Assuming it’s the notebooks driving the traffic here, I decided to revisit my review from 2009 and see what, if anything, has changed and maybe take a look at the company history while I was at it.

  • My 2014 Goals: Three Month Check

    Let’s check how I’m doing with my 2014 goals. Read More — I haven’t cracked open a single book on my list. That’s unfortunate but I’ve read several short stories and numerous long form pieces so I won’t beat myself up too much. Accumulate Less, Eliminate More — This is a noble thing to have on my list but I knew I’d have trouble with it. As it turns out, I’ve accumulated more stuff!

  • Why I’m Not Writing

    I’m lazy. That’s the cold, hard truth. I — like a lot of people with blogs — am avoiding the hard work. I have ideas, I have drafts, I have things I could be writing yet when I sit down to work I freeze and end up playing video games or surfing the web. This is nothing more than a bad habit, one I let myself fall into. Maybe writing is hard, maybe it’s not, that has nothing to do with it.

  • My Goals For 2014

    I’m trying something new this year: I’m setting a small list of goals. In the past I’ve written long lists that sounded great but weren’t possible to complete. This year I’m focusing on a simple list I know I can achieve. If I screw something up, I’ll acknowledge it, correct my behavior, and continue toward the goal. — Read More — I’ve been reading less lately but that hasn’t stopped me from buying books.

  • Being The Best Means Nothing If You’re Broken

    It’s officially 2014 and WordPress emailed a year-in-review that pointed out a rather large problem. According to the stats, these are my most viewed posts: Field Notes Mackinaw Autumn Review Black N’ Red Notebook Review G2 Signo 207 Hack Each of these were written in the heyday of the blog: 2009. They also shared another common trait: the images were broken. It seems when I moved the blog from to superfunti.

  • On Starting Titles With On

    I have a pet peeve: article titles that start with “on”. I don’t know if this practice has a name but it’s annoying. Surely a writer can craft a better title? “On The Subject Of Writing” Ewwwww. “On The New iPad” What’s on it? “On Writing” OK that’s a book by Stephen King and I’ll allow it. Starting a title with “on” seems weak, let’s all vow to avoid it.

  • Blizzard Announces Next World of Warcraft Expansion Pack

    Yeah, I’m a World of Warcraft player, so what? Today at Blizzcon, Blizzard announced the next expansion pack called Warlords of Draenor. It looks like we’re headed back in time to Draenor or what existed before Outland. I’m one of the many who hate questing through Outland so I really hope this is a different experience. There are a lot of great things coming in this expansion other than the new zones, things like new character models and a lot of changes to inventory handling have me pretty excited.

  • Everpix Shuts Down

    This bums me out. We were unable to secure sufficient funding in order to properly scale the business, and our endeavors to find a new home for Everpix did not come to pass. We are heartbroken to discontinue Everpix. It’s a project that is very close to each and every one of us on the team. We cannot be more thankful to all of our customers who supported us over the >years.
