I don’t see how such a system would ever possibly be abused. 🙄

In Coronavirus Fight, China Gives Citizens a Color Code, With Red Flags - The New York Times

I grew up in Baton Rouge from the age of 5, so LSU was always first. Before that, my first NFL games were in Houston with the Oilers, so they’ll always have a place in my heart. When I moved to New Orleans after getting married, I went all in on the Saints.…

I suppose there are worse songs to get an ear worm of than Bastille’s “Pompeii”.

Look, my reading queue is already years deep, so I seriously doubt I’m buying anything in the Smashwords Read an Ebook Week Sale. But a brief glance through some of the selections reveals two things: now I know where all the romance writers are, and everyone on Smashwords appears to be using the same half-dozen cover artists.

I get the feeling Pastor Rogers was ahead of the curve when it came to concepts like connected parenting and secure attachment.…

Due to my not liking their vocal stylings, whenever @TheBrometheus posts about listening to Amon Amarth, I inevitably turn to cranking @DivinerBandGr instead.

I will never stop praising the epicness of their song “The Earth, The Moon, The Sun.”

Those TXU Texas weather commercials are some of the most honest advertising I’ve ever seen. #nailedit

It’s Mardi Gras! Time for some “Fat Tuesday” by The Friendly Indians:…

I went to a @MarkGreaneyBook book signing, and ended up in an impromptu @BigFatGeekPod meetup with @theCGspalding!

Don’t you love it when the most random thing pops into your head at the most random time?

I’m at my kitchen table eating a late dinner (mmmmmm, steak), and all of a sudden I’m thinking, “And now is the time on Sprockets when we dance!”

Where did that come from?!?

I really need to finish @TheBrometheus’ Valkyrie book, because @MarkGreaneyBook’s latest arrived today.

Hey, everyone! My friend @rosskingmusic is working on his next album and you can help! If it’s anything like his last one, it will be awesome!

My eight year-old Rwandan child is singing along to “Manic Monday,” so I consider his indoctrination into ‘80s American culture a success.

I Can’t Stop Watching This Ice Chunk Fall Down an Absurdly Deep Hole

I see coronavirus prevention gear has become the next big thing with email spammers.

Ladies and gentlemen, yesterday marked the 4th anniversary of the first episode of the Empowered Parent Podcast. At the time it was the Tapestry podcast, and Kayla hadn’t yet joined Ryan and I, and so, so much has changed in four years. Thanks so much to all our listeners!

“Chris, why don’t you want to vacation in Mexico?”

Gee, I don’t know.

Retrophisch Review: Blue Bell Mardi Gras King Cake Ice Cream

If you’re expecting ice cream to taste exactly like king cake, you will be disappointed.

If you don’t like cinnamon, you will be extremely disappointed. (And you’re probably not eating real king cake anyway.)

If you have thought what Blue Bell’s Birthday Cake ice cream needs is more cinnamon, this is for you.

It’s not great, but it’s not horrible. Probably would not purchase again.

Color me intrigued. Will report on results of taste test shortly.

Despite my best intentions to up my footwear style game, it is not meant to be for me and chukka-style boots.

I’m a bit over halfway through The New Girl by @danielsilvabooks, and he could have easily subtitled it, “They done gone and made Gabriel Allon angry! They won’t like him when he’s angry!”

We’re not recording a @SneakyGoodPod episode this week, so give a listen to our latest, wherein I rain on @ATVSPoseur’s Goldblum parade, amongst other talking points.

Super Bowl, schmuper bowl. Watching my favorite hockey player. Two goals and an assist. #HockeyDadLife

Finally got around to listening to the Rise of Skywalker episode (#76) of The Movie Proposal. @skyejethani and I are of like mind about the film and every Star Wars movie since 1983. Worth a listen, casual nerds.
