Game of the devil

Don't play this game. All you thoughts will be spent on this game if you do. And if you thought regular IRL Monopoly could end friendships, Monopoly Go will obliterate all relationship real or virtual.

10 Year Challenge

Have to say this is a little unfair. Camera technology on mobile phones wasn't as good as it is today where the optics and algorithms and far less forgiving. Is weird to see how my vitiligo has progressed.

Hard Truths Every time I log into Spill, I realize how uncool I’ve been my whole life. It’s like a whole social network of cool people talking in coded cool language to keep people like me out. Need to keep to my group chats and be happy.

Hipster Traps

I've really been thinking about getting a record player lately. Those vinyl records look so cool. Even my local comic book store sells albums. I was more of a cassette walkman kid myself (CD Players were way too expensive), but I do remember my mom's collection. Believe me when I tell you that those Ohio Player album covers were as impactful as Richard Pryor and Eddie Murphy. I know it is just a fad. I could setup a Raspberry Pi audio player that could play something in a lossless codec and enjoy way better quality. But liner notes man. Those were so great.

We had to create Genius to bring back lyrics and it still wasn't as good.

The Same Price As Cable

Pretty much is getting to be the same price.


The Same Price As Cable

As much as I try to get away from Google, I still got it bad for that company. And with Google Christmas on Wednesday, May 10 (Google I/O), I'm as excited as ever.

You would think making a simple list of your favorite Disney animated movies wouldn't be so hard. WRONG!!! Turned into a life crisis. I initially wanted a list of five movies. That turned into eleven. That eleven ballooned into seventeen. After I got to seventeen Disney movies, it seemed silly not to have twenty. So here goes a list of my favorite #disneyanimatedmovies . Funny how there isn't one Mickey Mouse or Tigger movie in the bunch.

  • Aladdin
  • The Jungle Book
  • An Extremely Goofy Movie
  • The Lion King
  • The Incredibles
  • Monster's Inc.
  • Soul

My kids think I have a super power. They think the minute the Internet speed goes below Xbox or Netflix speeds that the hair on my arms stands up and I get a tingle in my spine.
