Run Hide Fight Active Shooter Video from Ready Houston

“Ready Houston,” a Web site dedicated to preparedness in the Houston, Texas area, recently released a video on how an average person could deal with an active shooter scenario. An “active shooter” is when one or more individuals begin firing into an occupied area such as a place of work, education, worship, or governmental agency. […]

Nexus 7 Screen Separation Issue

Nexus 7 Screen Separation Issue

I pre-ordered my Google Nexus 7 tablet the day it was announced. Mine arrived a few days after launch, and I’ve been using it exclusively ever since. My poor rooted and Jellybean ROM’d Amazon Kindle Fire doesn’t get any love. On the second day of use, I noticed a squishy feeling on the lower left […]

Public Service Announcement: Get Primal EP from Glitch Mob Member Ooah

Public Service Announcement: Get Primal EP from Glitch Mob Member Ooah

Josh “Ooah” Mayer of amazing musical group Glitch Mob has released a four track EP entitled Get Primal. This short and sweet four track EP is very close to Glitch Mob, but not quite as cinematic. I think Ooah (and LoBounce, the EP’s collaborator) sounds more like Glitch Mob meets Knife Party, in itself a […]

Every Man Jack Post Shave Face Lotion Review

Most people think that shaving removes just the hair from your body. If you’re getting a close shave, however, you are also removing some of the skin as well.

Lord L6 Long Handled Double Edge Safety Razor Review

As I’ve posted before, I’ve fallen in love with shaving with a double edge razor. I started about two and a half months ago and have shaved just about every day. I have some friends who purchased some really high end shaving equipment right off the bat. $150+ razor, expensive soaps, expensive brushes, etc. I […]

Anytime Tools Micro Precision Screwdriver Set Review

Anytime Tools Micro Precision Screwdriver Set Review

As I accumulated gadgets — portable gaming devices, knives, camcorders, laptops, etc — I also began to discover all sorts of weird screw types. Sure, there were different sizes of the typical Phillips and Standard screws, but there are different numbers of Torx screws, POZI screws, the weird Line Head screws used on Nintendo products, […]

Standing Desk a Year In Review

Standing Desk a Year In Review

Over a year ago I started using a standing desk in my home. A week after that I stood at work, and soon after that I was eating standing up while at home. A lot of my current job is spent in meetings, so I’d say I stand for eight to fourteen hours a day […]

Music You Need to Own: Malbec by Samples

“Music You Need to Own” is a little series I do about music I like. I like it so much that I put my money where my ears are, and give away a digital copy of the album to one of my readers. Today I’ll be writing about “Malbec” by Colorado-area musician Samples. Malbec is […]

Just One 2012 Edition

Two and a half years ago, we played the “Just one” game with some friends and family, and I wrote about it here on Gibberish. The premise is simple: it’s the apocalypse, and you can only choose one item from each of the following: Shirt Shoes Album Photo Book Weapon Remember, only one thing from […]
