Nope nope nope

Nope nope nope

That’s what Sedagive?’s older son Gojira said as he backed away from the basement stairwell. His younger brother G-Unit giggled like a boy possessed. What caused such a stir? A multi-legged monstrosity that I’ve battled both in Minnesota and in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The house centipede. Tags: featured, minnesota, mutant insects

Pacific Rim: Giant Robots vs Giant Monsters in July 2013

Pacific Rim: Giant Robots vs Giant Monsters in July 2013

I try not to get my hopes up with movies, but sometimes I can’t help myself. I really liked the idea and trailer behind Iron Sky but it turned out to be a big disappointment. Sometimes crazy movies like D-Wars hit my radar and go down in flames, but every once in awhile a movie […]

Is That a Katydid On Your Chair, or You Just Happy to See Me?

Sedagive? and I do a kettlebell routine three nights a week here at the house. We clear the furniture out of the living room, including two upholstered chairs. I went to replace them when we were done, and I noticed a very bright green leaf on top of one of them. I reached out to […]

The post in which DrFaulken screams like a tweener girl

Every once in awhile I get a wild hair and decide to tackle the many tasks that fill my “to do” list.

“Natural insect predators are great,” or WTF is living in my yard

Every once in awhile some big mutant bug decides to colonize my property. Hardwood stump boring beetles, Japanese beetles, drunken hornets, you name it. Now I seem to have some sort of alien parasite near the base of my steps. Tags: mutant insects

That’s about the last thing you want to hear on an airplane, right after “ALLAHU AKBAR” and the sound of a dead man’s switch being activated. Tags: flying, mutant insects, travel, work
