A Punk Twist on Road Rules (and Common Sense)

Never Mind the Texting

One day when I am elected governor of the world’s 8th largest economy, I will make it priority one to have this sticker on every vehicle with a California license plate. Ten years apparently isn’t enough time to get used to the fact that residents from Sacramento to San Diego refuse to use turn signals. Just to be sure, I … Read More

SuperN00b Update, February 2013

COMPLETED Bioshock 2 – As gorgeous and stylish as the first installment. I’m really looking forward to Bioshock Infinite. Call of Duty Black Ops II – Easily the best Call of Duty title produced to date (at least of all the modern warfare series-never played the others). I liked it so much that I plan to play the campaign through … Read More

My Short Route 66 Odyssey

Back in the summer of 1996, heeding the famous words of Horace Greeley, yours truly set off on a grand adventure to pursue fame and fortune in Los Angeles. It lasted all of three weeks before this lost and confused kid (with no tangible job skills) was on his way back to Buffalo. One good thing that came out of … Read More

A Craig’s List Comeback from the 80s

Back in the 1980s when yours truly attended (an all boys) high school, among other things like parachute pants, clogs, skinny ties, and Sun-in, mother jokes (insults) were all the rage. The vernacular had morphed from a simpler late 70’s state  (“Ya mama”) to a more elaborate one (“That’s not what your mother said last night”) in the 80’s. Our … Read More

SuperN00b Update April 2012

COMPLETED Battlefield 3 – For me, the Battlefield franchise has been a pleasant surprise. With its destructible cover and realistic recoil, it’s a slightly more satisfying combat experience than Call of Duty for my money. Bayonetta – A game of stunning and stylish visuals. But ultimately it wasn’t enough to keep me engrossed with the onslaught of quality games coming … Read More

Friendz 4-evah?

Though Scott Brown’s Wired Magazine article on Facebook “Friendonomics” is almost 4 years old now (published in 2012), it still rings true. I was recently “found” by an ex whom with I parted amicably almost 30 years ago. She wasn’t looking to re-kindle, just to catch up. (It turns out, BOTH of us are happily married.) We had a flurry … Read More

A Hefty Dose of Reality

I was so inspired by this image, that I rebranded my blog and nabbed both .com and.net domains of the same name. They’re mine, suckahs!!! But really, who cares? And actually, I was just thinking that I should have taken it a step further by registering nobodygivesaratsassaboutyourblog.com…

Eric the King

The year 1995 marked my (so far) one and only pilgrimage to football mecca: Old Trafford. (For the uninitiated, Old Trafford, aka The Field of Dreams, is the home of Manchester United, arguably the most famous soccer team on the planet.) At that time, Eric Cantona was my favorite player. He was also serving a season-long suspension for the famous … Read More
