For Boston: My Home
For once in my life, I was speechless. I sat at work while news poured in through social media and the radio. Rumors and half truths kept coming and going. No one had any idea what was going on. I complained that morning that I had to work as a few of my friends headed into Boston to see the marathon and pub crawl. The first thing that struck my mind was a frantic thought if they were...

Sorry it’s been so long faithful readers! I’ve had so many topics I’ve wanted to blog about with no time to do it. I’ll keep tonight light and easy as I have wanted to do another movie review, and I’m away for work and typing this up on my laptop… I saw the movie: Mama the other day, and after seeing the previews and hearing some hype, I was pretty excited...
Political Rant 2.0 (I'm Sorry!)
Hello faithful readers! I was going to do a movie review…but there’s been way to much going on. Enter: Political Rant 2. I apologize ahead of time. A lot of things have been said and done over the past few weeks, and as the election draws closer, it seems some people have gone off the deep end. You can imagine who these people could be… What has one of the major topics...
Quick blurb about the debate. Obama brought it tonight. I was scared for a while, but over the past few weeks, Romney has said a lot of things that will forever haunt him. Tonight was no different. Anyone else catch his “Binders full of women” comment? R-Money wants to be viewed as someone who understands the middle class. Someone who will fight for the common man and not give...
Bacon Shortage a Bust!
We can all relax, the Global Bacon Shortage is unlikely. Read here. However, don’t take it for granted, as prices still may go up. I still hold firm to what I sarcastically said. We, as true bacon purists, need to stop the insanity. No more bacon fad. No more 100 pound cheerleaders wearing I <3 bacon shirts. You don’t heart bacon. If you hearted bacon, you wouldn’t fit...
Bacon...No Longer the Other White Meat???
Folks, we have a problem. A problem of dire consequences. Something so terrible, it may change the world. Woman will gasp, children will be beaten, and middle aged, single men everywhere will weep like acne ridden, overweight teenagers on prom night. My friends, I bring to you, THE BACON SHORTAGE. I woke up yesterday to my Facebook news feed blowing up, people posting links to my wall of...
Perfect Sitcom Family!!!
So I was totally thinking of old school sitcoms today as usual and had an awesome idea. What would be your ideal sitcom family??? Copy the below and enter in your answers. Tag your friends that share our love of awesome, old school television! Anyone that doesn’t include Winnie Cooper in some way is dead to me :). Father: Carl Winslow Mother: Norma Arnold Older Sibling: Samantha Micelli ...
Use Your Do Over!!!
Well it’s been a bit, I’ve been super busy and I finally have a night to sit down and write. I am dvr’ing the Voice right now so I can watch it commercial free later. Eat it corporate sponsors! I toyed with a few topics for the night, but I thought I would take the serious route. Life’s been getting me a bit down lately, and I found myself, like many others, wishing...
I Love Lamp?
So I had no idea what to write about tonight, so I visited a random blog topic generator. I was determined to write tonight, as I’ve been slacking lately. I was trying to think of something funny, but even someone as hilarious as me couldn’t think of anything that I hadn’t already made fun of today. The GOP, Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne…Roger Clemens…?...
Even MORE Things That Annoy And Disgust Me At The...
As I’ve said before, a lot of annoying and disgusting things happen at the gym. How these people function on a day to day basis is beyond me, but what you do on your own time is your business. I would like to think when the man with the sewer cover sized man boobs eats a steak, he grunts as loud as he does when he’s power lifting. I’m not even going to imagine what the sex...
Batman: The Dark Knight Rises
It is very sad. Not the movie. Not at all…well the scene where Alfred either confesses his undying love for Bruce Wayne…or his loyalty…I don’t know, I was confused about that. I’ve never seen a heterosexual man break up before. What was sad was the ending of the Batman trilogy. I never understood why people stop at three. Only the good movies stop at...
The History Channel: Where History Doesn’t Happen!
Hello faithful readers! G-Pete is exhausted so he is going to hand the controls over to his first ever guest blogger! Introducing Charles “The Main Event” Orrell. This funny man has some serious beef with the History Channel, and I use that name lightly. We share a love of history, and the reality show mongering blasphemy this channel has become is deplorable. So before I get...
Oreo Cookies, Health Care and Spiking the...
While I usually like to keep my blog light-hearted and full of hilarity, sometimes I like to buckle down and get serious. Or as serious as I can. This week brought about many issues and a real eye-opener for me…while I always thought of myself as somewhat of an independent, I usually veer more towards liberal agendas and ideals. What I saw this week ultimately sickened me and made me...
Review: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter!!!
Despite all the other awesome movies that premiered over the past few weeks, the Friday Night Avenger’s (as we’ve dubbed ourselves) made the decision to see Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. All of us knew going into this movie that it was going to be a terrible yet fun ride, full of historical inaccuracies and most importantly, vampires that didn’t sparkle. Boy, were we...
The Baconing: The Top Three Bacon Atrocities
Really? As I’ve said before, I REALLY love bacon. However, bacon is a mainstream fad now and anybody who wishes to be anybody has jumped on the greasy bandwagon. Pigs across America have been screaming in horror at the things food companies have been creating to try and squeeze a buck out of the average bacon loving person. Bacon is everywhere: On T-shirts, bumper stickers, and even bacon based...
This Song Is Out Of This World, Yo'
I like to think I have a wide taste in music. I like pretty much everything except for screamo-metal and country, because let’s face it, there’s only so many times you can hear about killing someone or riding in your pickup truck. However, I have a dark secret. One of my guilty pleasures is pop music. I’ll listen to pretty much any of it, and most days you can find me car-aokeing to Coldplay,...
Granite State Comic Con, Comics, and More...
Whew! What a weekend! Five and Dime Comics had an awesome time at the Granite State Comic Con! We got to see our old friends, make new ones, and have dinner with our good buddy, the great Mark McKenna! Keep an eye on this con fellow geeks, this one is going places! Every year it gets bigger, and the store that runs it out of Manchester, NH (Double Midnight Comics) is just amazing. I cannot...
Avengers VS. X-Men
I have little to say about this arc. So far it has been uneventful and disappointing. All I can say is if Cyclops doesn’t die at the end of it, I may stop reading Marvel. That’s a lie. I love Marvel. But Cyclops still needs to die. If anyone is a bigger douchebag in the Marvel universe, I have yet to see him/her. Reasons Why Cyclops Sucks: Your first wife died and you did...
This won’t take long. I’m still astounded at what just happened. Did you watch the season finale of Glee? I did. I want to track Ryan Murphy down and punch him in the face. In a good way. Not only did he have us all going with what was going to happen next season, we were all led to believe everything was going to be wrapped up in a neat little package. It’s like he...
Weight Loss and You...and McDonald's...
File Photo Ok, first, I want to apologize. I got lazy. I need to rename this blog “Every other week I’m Tumblin’” because I have been bad about updating. I would like to say I’ve been super busy…but that’s a lie. I have been busier than usual, however, Diablo 3 came out, and I’ve seen a bunch of good movies, so that hasn’t helped. I was...
Why the Internet is a Horrible Thing
I love me some internets, it’s a great thing. It provides us with endless entertainment, funny memes and silly cat videos. However, since the internet became a thing, and people relied on it more and more, life got out of hand. Things got all topsy turvey, and with most things, people ruined it. I remember a time when the internet didn’t exist. Growing up, I had to play with...
Boston Comic Con!!!
Hello Faithful Readers! Come visit Five and Dime Comics this weekend at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Ma at the Boston Comic Con this weekend! Mention my blog and get a free print of your favorite strip! Do your favorite Tumblr a favor and go like their Facebook page? For me, please? Hope to see you all this weekend!
Growing Pains...And I Don't Mean A Homophobic Kirk...
God being 30 sucks. I touch upon this all the time, but let me tell you, the fun just keeps being sucked out of life. Working out starts getting harder, people expect you to have everything figured out, 401k’s become a thing and most importantly, my good looks are going to start fading!!! This is the time when you realize most of your friends are married, have children, or are more...
5 Stereotypical Things That Will Happen To You In...
There are very few moments of my life where I can look back and say “I am honestly happy. Everyday.” College was one of those times. I look back at those ridiculous times fondly and every day I wish I could go back. For those of you that went to college, you know the stereotypes, the jokes, and the idiocy that went on behind (and in front of) closed doors. In the following, I am...
Out Of My Way! I Drive A Truck!
Before I start this blog, I want to make sure that everyone knows I’m making a generalized statement. I know not everyone that owns a truck or a large SUV is a raging douchebag. I have many friends that do, and they drive just fine. However, over my years of driving, I have noticed that a majority of the douchiest drivers are in fact, owners of large, ridiculous automobiles. I...
Where Does He Get Those Wonderful Toys?
I visited my local Toys R’ Us the other day (Why? Because I was shopping for my imaginary children and shut up, that’s why), and I took a stroll over to the action figure section. A majority of my childhood involved playing with action figures, so I have a special place in my heart for them. What I saw bothered me. Whoever is in charge at toy companies today must be the most...
It’s geek week! In correspondence with my good friends at Five and Dime Comics, I am going to keep the party going in the best way I can, ridicule and name calling! The word geek is thrown around so much lately, especially with the new found fad of being a geek, which I touched upon in a previous post. However, many people are ignorant to the fact that there are many kinds of geeks. ...
Review! Silent House...
I use the term “worst movie I’ve ever seen” often. However, that term can mean many things. There are certain tiers of “worst movie I’ve ever seen”. Funny worst movie, horrible worst movie, boring worst movie. On a scale of “The Day After Tomorrow” to “The Orphan”, Silent House rates in at around a “The Village”. I...

Taint No Thang. TMNT and the Future.
If you’ve been under a rock for the past day or so, you may not have heard. Everyone’s favorite destroyer of childhood memories is at it again. News came out that Michael Bay would be at the helm of the new Ninja Turtles reboot. A live action throwback to the original movies. How Mr. Bay can even fathom doing anything live action without CGI is beyond me, but I’ll be damned...
Archaeology!!! Da Na Na Na...Da Na Naaaaa
This is a story all about how my life got flip turned upside down. Not really. If that were the case, I’d be mooching off my rich, fat uncle in Bel Air. That and I’m terrible at B-Ball. Anyways, this is the story of how I became an Archaeologist…wait…that’s not right. This is the story of how I pursued my degree in Archaeology. There we go. Grab a snack, sit...
IT'S MORPHIN' TIME!!!
I’ve been having a bit of nostalgia lately. Reminiscing about my favorite shows growing up. I always loved cartoons and kids shows, hell, I still do. I’ll still get up on a Saturday and throw on Cartoon Network or Nickelodeon and go to town. However, the shows available to kids now just aren’t the same. I remember a time when Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, David the Gnome,...
I'm Ridin' Solo
I woke up at the crack of dawn this morning (7am) and the first thing that popped into my head was “Jesus…I’m 30” I don’t know why, but this disgusting fact took root in my brain like a spidery cancer. I tried to kill it with Cinnamon Toast Crunch, but alas, it stayed with me for the better part of the day. The fact that I recently turned the dirty thirty...
Paffff! Jubilee Saves the Day!
Everyday is the fourth of July. You could have every day off from school or work if Jubilee was president. Wanna go get dinner? Boom fireworks. Bad day at work? Boom fireworks. Stuck in a two hour traffic jam? Boom fireworks. Find me one person that doesn’t enjoy a good fireworks show, and I show you a terrible human being. But no, you, faithful reader, much like 90% of the comic...
Looking Back - Glee
Oh Glee, you get me every time. I’ve been hooked on this show ever since day 1, and I always gave it the benefit of the doubt. Even at the start of season 3, where I swear Ryan Murphy just took a vacation and drunkenly scribbled down what he though was a “plot”. The first three episodes of this season were mediocre at best, and the show lost the certain “oomph”...
Review! Ghost Rider Poo
I’m going to tell you right now, if you want to see this movie, liked this movie or have any sense of compassion or love for Nic “I’ll do anything to get out of my crippling debt” Cage, do not read this blog. I saw this “movie” (it pains me to even write that word) Friday night, and after four days my seething anger has barely succeeded. That rotten pile of...
Bacon...It's What's For Dinner
This issue is near and dear to my heart. Ever since I was little, I loved bacon. One of my first memories as a child was pulling a temper tantrum on my grandfather because he only cooked half the pound of bacon. Bacon is not just a food to me, it’s a delicious way of life. I don’t mean to sound like a filthy, douchey hipster, but I liked bacon, nay, I loved bacon before it was...

Trilha Das Lágrimas
Today was a bad day. Not for me, but for the world in general. I started today in a good mood and was planning on blogging tonight about bacon, Whitney Houston, fashion debaucheries at the Grammys or my never ending battle with Subway over allowing me to order the bacon, egg and cheese that is already made and just sitting there behind the counter…however since it is dinnertime, I was not...
The River - Review!
The River. So many hopes for this show. I saw previews and read reviews for weeks. It’s like Lost! Plus Paranormal Activity! Plus Awesome! This show was going to be the greatest thing to grace tv since Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction. I settled in after Glee and New Girl and booted up my DVR. I didn’t want to sit through a 2 hour show with commercials every 5...
