Handmade Nintendo controller coin purse review

When I saw mention of a handmade Nintendo controller-ish coin purse at DS Fanboy, I knew I had to have one. I went to Lindsey Porter’s storefront on Etsy. Etsy specializes in handmade stuffs, so if you’re looking for something unique or small-run, check them out. Pictures and the rest of the write-up are behind […]

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, STILTS!!

I’m pretty much the anti-Christ and an asshole of ginormous proportions. As such, it’s remarkable that I have any friends at all, let alone friends who withstand the test of time. I’ve known Stilts since he was a wee lad at William and Mary — I helped him realize when he could and couldn’t skip […]

Creative Fitness door frame chin-up bar review

I haven’t been to the real-gym for about four months. I haven’t felt the drive or desire to really go. I’m still in decent looking shape, have gone from a 34 to a 32, and am only nine pounds heavier than my high school weight. To keep up some level of upper body strength I […]

My uncle Nino, who has been living in Mexico for a few years, entered his modified Volkswagen Beetle in a car competition in Morelia, Mexico. Herculito (Little Hercules) competed against three hundred other cars and took first place. Here are the two pictures he sent along: Nino has always been into custom cars. He has […]

Nice job, HR drone.

So, I got a letter from my employer last Friday. It made me nervous, as I don’t normally get correspondence from them unless it’s payday or we’re ready to do the annual insurance crap. I thought for a moment that I had been laid off and it was my severance notice. I held the envelope […]

On Target: A Big Box retailer’s ten plastic bag conservation suggestions

I wrote up a list of ten ways to reuse plastic bags in March after San Francisco passed a ban on plastic grocery bags. I bought some things from Target recently, and noticed they also had a list of ten ideas. Let’s see how they match up. No tags for this post.

Emjoi Epislim AP9LC Epilator review

In my ongoing, hopeless war against my body hair, I often turn to … unconventional contraptions and procedures. At least, unconventional for a guy. Especially a straight one. That isn’t in porn or professional fighting. Rip my nose hairs out by hand if I couldn’t find a trimmer? Ayup. Own a grooming device with multiple […]

Kel-tec PF-9 handgun review

Firearms are a passion of mine. If you’re a regular Gibberish reader, you know this. What you may not know is that I’ve held a concealed carry permit in the Commonwealth of Virginia ever since I turned 21. Most kids buy a twelve pack or go barhopping; I bought my Glock 27 and shot five […]

Silent gathering

Hey buddy, I just wanted to give you an update. Your buddy Steven Slidelightly came through: after over a month of advertising, we got together and convoyed down to Williamsburg in your honor. There were twenty-two bikes and probably five or six cars’ worth of people. It rained all night before, and in the morning […]
