Review: #SpeedStickGear

Image Property Colgate-Palmolive

Recently the folks over at Influenster hit me up to review the new SpeedStick Gear deodorants with “DryCore” technology. Yep, I know, but still – branding ;-). And yes, by way of disclosure – they provided me two free sticks for purposes of this review.

I didn’t think the Onlive interface could get worse…then this happened….

It got worse. I thought endless scrolling screens was pretty horrible, but the new Windows 8-esque layout really takes the cake. Not only does it not cure any of the prior failings but it’s hyper sensitive to the controller meaning single increment scrolling is challenging.Continue Reading

Doctor Who 90′s Movie

So, after catching up on everything Doctor Who from the modern era, we’re now working our way back.  Simultaneously trying to find a way to introduce the munchkins to Doctor Who, and so we’ve landed at the 90′s movie.  Though it’s very 1980′s in feeling – kinda Amazing Stories or Outer Limits (80′s) in style.Continue ReadingContinue Reading

Chick-fil-A, the official restaurant of the Boy Scouts of America [Humor]

So the Boy Scouts of America Suck…Now What?

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) haven’t made their feelings about gay members a secret at any point in the last few years.  It does seem they’ve recently come out (pun intended) and decided to keep their policy unchanged.  Left and right on social media channels we’re seeing Eagle Scouts, former Boy/Eagle Scouts return theirContinue ReadingContinue Reading
