Okay, so one of my New Year’s resolutions is to post here more. So, away we go. I’m going to be posting about music, movies, television, technology, and the like. Today’s music exposure: Zac Maloy. Zac Maloy was the front man for the 90s band The Nixons. You may remember their most popular song, “Sister”. […]

Texas Tech Tuna

So Texas Tech vs. Texas.. DAMN what a game with a piss-poor ending. My take? Classic Texas Tech football. The team played their asses off and still wound up with the loss. Why? No, not the officiating – although that was horrendous. I place “blame” on two things: bad play calling and a lack of […]

Are you ready for some football?

How to Please Your IT Department

1. When you call us to have your computer moved, be sure to leave it buried under half a ton of postcards, baby pictures, stuffed animals, dried flowers, bowling trophies and children’s art. We don’t have a life, and we find it deeply moving to catch a fleeting glimpse of yours. 2. Don’t write anything […]

Remakes

My wife and I saw “War of the Worlds” on Saturday…and I surprisingly enjoyed it. I’m not the biggest fan of movie remakes, so I was expecting a poorly-written rework. Instead, what I saw was a very-well written movie simply modernized. There were even a couple cameos from the 1953 movie. Since I’m on the […]
