All this work I’m putting in, even while I wait for one of our vehicles to get serviced, so you people have a quality product at Tapestry Conference. You’re coming, right?

Thanks to a source with photo-scanning/tracing software and a vinyl printer, the Star Wars sticker family lives again!

Honest question to all the Dallas Cowboys fans out there: do you really care about watching the games of Dallas’ divisional opponents?

This is the justification for the NFL broadcasting those games over those of teams geographically closer to Dallas.

Pro tip: grill cleaning is really easy when you turn the burners on high and close the lid, allowing the interior to get to 600 degrees Fahrenheit.

The @robkroese-induced music video rabbit hole continues. This is for @kristenrudd:

‘80s style AOR/Melodic Rock is alive and well in Sweden. This album released just last year.

Hey, everyone, it’s @JarrettRush’s birthday! Let’s celebrate by picking up one of his excellent books! I’m especially fond of the Rubble & Ruin series:……

He also has a great new series out under a pen name:…

Because I led a sheltered childhood and didn’t have cable, and thus MTV, when I was growing up, I am just now seeing the original video for The Cult’s “She Sells Sanctuary”.

Also, I fully blame @robkroese for the ‘80s music YouTube video rabbit hole I’ve gone down.

Gee, you would think an advanced AI would have knowledge at its, er, microchips about animals’ biology, eh, @CARROT_app? #carrotweather

Finished Adam Lane Smith’s “Gideon Ira: Knight of the Blood Cross” over the weekend. He describes it as “heavy metal Christian pulp fiction,” and indeed it is. Fun and enjoyable.…

Thanks to @tweetgrubes dropping it at tonight’s Stars game, I have Rob Zombie’s “Dragula” on repeat. Then I mentioned it to @bekindtobignate, who had opinions of his own, and hello Rob Zombie black hole I’m disappearing down…

Epic recording session last night for the Big Fat Geek podcast. I’ll let my iPhone’s background tell you what we discussed.

Praise the Lord. This is long overdue.


I am suddenly struck by an idea for a new type of prison ministry. I bet some @bigfatgeekpod listeners would be into this.…

JV hockey regular season kicked off tonight, and Kid1’s team started by leveling the only team they lost to in the leveling tournament, 4-1. #goodstart #FMMHockey

Watching Notre Dame-Georgia, I am reminded of one thing: no matter how bad any of the ESPN/SEC Network broadcast teams are when covering LSU, none of them are as bad as listening to Gary. Oy. 🙄

And THAT is why you haven’t gotten any respect from the big boys for going undefeated, UCF. #GoPitt

I wonder what the bet was that he lost.…

On the latest Sneaky Good podcast, we preview LSU’S SEC opener against Vanderbilt with Tom from SB Nation sister site, @anchorofgold.…

I wrote about a place that was important to our family, but no longer exists.

“This will be a day long remembered. It has seen the end of the AT-AT driver, it will soon see the end of the Star Wars sticker family.”
