Best Housewarming Gift EVER

Been quite some time since the last post, mostly because life has been a mess. Since my last post, I joined an Improv comedy class and had my first show (a warm hi to all my fellow improvers at Bay Area Acting Studio), planned for and moved completely across the country (from Silicon Valley to […]

T-Mobile vs. AT&T–A Cross-Country Comparison

So, in our cross-country trip, one of the things we did while resting in NC was switch phone carriers, from AT&T to T-Mobile. My reasons for doing this were quite simple, and come down to a combination of idealism, frugality, and vengeance. On the idealism front, I really like the ‘uncarrier’ theme T-Mobile is going […]


Program Review–Boss Barbell Strength Method (on a cut)

Hot on the heels of my last review, I thought I would go ahead a review this program, since I’ve now run it for two mesocycles. For those of you who haven’t heard of it, Boss Barbell Strength method (hereafter referred to as BBSM) is Dan Green’s own program. I started lifting at Dan’s gym, […]



Program Review–Doggcrapp Training

This is a long time coming, but I wasn’t in a place to write about it until now, so here goes. Last year for almost the entire year I ran DC full time. I was coming back from an injury, and I decided that honestly, my biggest goal is not to get as strong as […]

The 2014 Shelby GT500–A Review

As some of you may know, back in March I traded my 2012 GT500 in on a 2014 GT500. I’ve now had the car for a little over two months, and put about 4,000 miles on it (including a trip to the track), so I wanted to give the car a proper review. Additionally, I […]

Mapex MyDentity 6-piece Shell Pack Review–With Sound Clips

For a few years now, I’ve been back into drumming pretty regularly, and have been getting by with a modestly upgraded old Tama Rockstar DX kit. While I really liked the look of the old Tama power toms, the more I played, the more I realized that getting them into a configuration that was comfortable […]

Five Great Hair-Metal Songs You Probably Missed

Well, my obsessive listening habits have brought me around to hair metal from time to time (I am a child of the 80’s, after all), and it still shocks me how many obscure gems are out there to discover. So here are five that you probably missed when they came out that you shouldn’t have. […]

Pure Alaska Salmon Review

As I’ll detail in an upcoming post (once I’m sure the dietary protocols are repeatable), I’ve been experimenting with Protein Sparing Modified Fasts (PSMF) in an effort to cut the most fat in the shortest amount of time possible. One of the things I really like about PSMFs are that they cut out all of […]


Wisdom from a Master

This week, I got the opportunity to get a training session from the current all-federation raw World Record holder in the 242lb weight class, Dan Green. The session was hugely enlightening, and after taking a few days to let some of it gel in my mind, I wanted to take the opportunity to review my […]

Moving to the Dark Side: Linux vs. Windows from a Windows guy

For the last few months, I have done something that many of my geek friends would never have imagined: I have spent 90+% of my computing time using Linux. This is a huge deal for me for many reasons, but one of the biggest is that I have railed against Linux in the past. Furthermore, […]
