dumpy bachelor pad

When I ask "what does your ultimate bachelor pad look like?" What do you see? Some of my friends laughed at the question. My language seemed retro double-oh-seven-ish. Bachelor pad, you say? City flat, perhaps? Although everyone's response was different, everyone summed up with "It's got to be comfortable." This is Home, Baby Unlike Austin Powers’ gadget-y space [...]

occulus rift gaming

The future of virtual reality looks bright. If you haven't heard the news, Facebook just bought Oculus for approximately $2 billion dollars. Yes, you heard me right, Facebook. That's an interesting purchase for such a "risky new technology", don't you think? What prompted Facebook, a social media company, to spend all that money on a [...]

messy bedroom

If you’re not especially tidy and tend to throw everything into large garbage bags right before company's coming over, you're my nightmare. If you're one of those people... it’s also important to learn how to clean without losing or damaging valuables. We're actually great advocates of professional cleaners for busy people or certain types of [...]

world’s most expensive toilet paper

A few years back, I wrote about the Golden Pill that makes your poop glitter. Surprisingly, it received a crap load of traffic. If you have $425 to make  your poop glitter then coughing up $17 for a roll of toilet paper should not really be an issue. A Japanese manufacturer is the creator of [...]

Wear and Tear: The Wonderful, Wind Up World of Watch Repair Thumbnail

What is as effective as a Swiss clock, but takes years to be born? It’s a watchmaker. This may be a bit of timely watch repair humor, but in all earnestness, people have a multitude of questions related to watchmakers and watch repair. You’re probably thinking, “Why do we call them watchmakers if they only [...]

BMW E9 concept david obendorfer

Ford brought back the look of the vintage Mustang in 2005 and soon after, Chevy and Dodge followed in its footpath with the Camaro and Challenger. And most recently, Nissan showcased their IDx Nismo concept which is reminiscent of the Datsun days of the late 1960's and early 70's. Wouldn't it be pretty cool if [...]

Aros smart A/C unit

I love the summer heat but on a rare occasion, some cool air blowing through the house is always nice as well. These days, everything in our homes seem to be "smart" and "app enabled". So why not have a smart air conditioner as well? Depending on the cost of electricity in your area and [...]

scottish independance

Scotland's most recent bid for independence from England has inspired lots of people to dress up like Mel Gibson in Braveheart. The press proposes that Scots want freedom from England, again... because they want the £10 billion in oil revenues from the North Sea and, of course, they'd like to spend less on taxes. This makes Americans [...]

deus ex live action fan film

It wasn't so very long ago that I was completely obsessed with Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Like... really obsessed. It was the long awaited sequel to one of my favorite games of all times, and I'm happy to say that it was every bit as enjoyable as I expected it to be. Unfortunately I couldn't [...]

st. patricks day parade

Every year I celebrate St. Patrick's Day, the most festive, greenest, most drunkenly holiday of them all. Each year I wonder at what exactly I'm celebrating, and vow to actually, you know... look up the history. I've been saying this for years, but finally I've done it. I'm a little late to the draw (what [...]
