What the hell is wrong with people?!? Holy shit! Today on The Jason Ellis Show on SiriusXM, Raw Dog read a news story that there are actual video games trivializing and glamorizing rape and sexual violence. Cartoon sex has been around as long as cartoons have, but this is a whole other sick level. Making rape seem fun is sick and dangerous. I am not one to join the band wagon that video games...
I grew up at the drive-in. Since I was born, as far back as I can remember, I spent most nights of my youth at the drive-in theater. Hell, my Mom and Dad actually met while working at the local drive-in when she was 15 and he was 17. They went to different schools in different cities and were quite different from one another. She worked the snack bar cash register and he tore tickets and was the...
I am a geek.
This diagram demonstrates the differences and overlap between Geek, Nerd, and Dork. I like Star Wars, Apple, blogging, and tech gadgets. I have been told I am pretty intelligent and am often obsessed with whatever it is I am into. I get geeky humor and like geeky things (according to my wife). I can spend hours on my iPhone and/or computer researching new gadgets, websites, learning about new...
First let me preface this blog post: In some previous (and future) blogs I will discuss drinking alcohol, partying, and other adult topics. This does not take away from anything I am writing below. Everyone needs to let loose and have fun from time to time. The key is knowing your limits and knowing that you have bigger responsibilities. That said, here we go…. Sadly, these images are...

New York City
This blog (Pictures From A Taxi) makes me miss New York. It is such an amazing place, I want to go back soon.
Baby Sling Recall
This is crazy, another recall because people are lazy dumb and need to blame others. Over 1 million Infantino brand baby slings are being recalled because there were 14 recorded deaths due to suffocation. The suffocation was due to the babies being too low in the sling or having their face pressed against the person wearing the sling or having their chin on their chest as a result of poor...

New Moon Nonsense
People I know are having DVD release parties for this shit. Grown ups. No really full grown adults! Enough already. Stop the nonsense.
Douche move dude.
This is just sad. I was pulling for you man. You seemed so sincere when you were telling the world how wonderful your wife is and how being married to Sandra Bullock, movie star, was such a perfect thing. She professed her love for you and thanked you at every award show she won at this year. She even went so far as to say that you were amazing because you “have her back when no one ever...
St. Patrick's Day
St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. Every year you wear green, drink green beer and Irish Car Bombs and get smashed with everyone around you pretending to be from a country you could give two shits about any other day of the year. I happen to be part Irish so it works out well for me as a pasty white guy who had some red hair growing up. My daughters are Finley, Scarlett and...
I wish I was at SXSW
Between the awesome bands, parties with everyone in social media, and the seminars and movies….I am missing the goods. SXSW is the premier all-in-one event for everything social media. My goal is to be there next year. Evan Williams, Guy Kawasaki, Kevin Rose and other leaders in social media all in one place discussing the future of marketing, technology and media is the place to be. Here...
Ah, the wonder years...
This was my third job ever. I worked as a birthday host at Showbiz Pizza, which would become Chuck E. Cheese’s within a few months of my hire date. I made ok money peddling pizza and crappy cake to kids celebrating birthdays who wanted to be in the presence of animatronic hydraulic gorillas, rats, dogs, bears and chickens that sang covers of classic rock songs. By hooking the birthday...

School: Day One
Booksmart Devil Back to school: Day One. What did I get myself into? It’s been over 7 years since I did this shit. I am already pulling my hair out and stressing about all of the work I need to fit into a day….then I added school to the mix. Idiot.
