One Bag of Trash Per Week Challenge

One Bag of Trash Per Week Challenge

We have been concentrating on reducing our household waste for the last two months. There wasn’t a particular event that sparked our desire to be more “green,” although a conversation with my friend BigDubb about one-use plastic bags was definitely a big part of developing our household challenge: throw away only one bag of trash […]

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

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. Removing too much skin is one way that people get “razor burn,” or skin irritation. The other common way to irritate the skin or encourage infected […]

Lord L6 Long Handled Double Edge Safety Razor Review

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 […]

Micro-Tech Tablet Stylus Review

Micro-Tech Tablet Stylus Review

I’m a big believer in the tablet form factor for personal computing. I have a Barnes and Noble Nook Color, two Amazon Kindle Fires, two iPads, and a Google Nexus 7 on the way. That’s a lot of smudgy fingerprints. I use screen cleaning cloths made by 3M Scotchbrite, but sometimes it’s best to avoid […]

Arko Shaving Soap and West Coast Shaving Twist-Up Shaving Stick Container Review

Arko Shaving Soap and West Coast Shaving Twist-Up Shaving Stick Container Review

So I already wrote about how much I love double edge razor shaving, and described my shaving process. Part of it is due to the amazing lather I get from Arko shaving soap. Unlike most soaps made today, Arko and a few other shaving soaps are made out of tallow, which is rendered animal fat. […]

Gravity Burst – an Ascending Empires Clone for Android OS First Impressions

Gravity Burst – an Ascending Empires Clone for Android OS First Impressions

I own Ascending Empires, a board game that pits up to four players against each other in a race to dominate the galaxy. The game requires a mix of tactical thinking and dexterity, as players move their spaceships around by flicking them with their fingers. I am in the process of writing up my feelings […]

Case Star Silicone Skin for Kindle Fire Review

Case Star Silicone Skin for Kindle Fire Review

The price is right, but the color and fit of the Case Star silicone skin for the Kindle Fire are twin disasters I couldn’t ignore. Pass.

Chessex Pound of Dice

Chessex Pound of Dice

We’ve been playing a lot more role-playing games at the house recently. My friend Ajar is running a larger game, and we just kicked off a smaller campaign last week. You know what every gaming table needs? Dice. Lots of them. The “Pound-O-Dice” offering from Chessex seemed like the most cost-effective way to put a […]
