AGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH. I was not ready for this. I thought about it. I tried to prepare myself for the inevitable. But for naught. I still was not ready for today.

R.I.P. Leonard Nimoy. He lived long and prospered, but not nearly long enough.

I don't know if I'll be able to watch the end of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan ever again.

This new version of Aquaman doesn't look like he's in any danger of being strangled by plastic six-pack rings.

I think I will call this essay: Why kids today do not need to be convinced that Aquaman is cool.  First and foremost, I love how Warner Bros./Time Warner Inc. and Zack Snyder have been so almost arbitrary about releasing bits and pieces from what is the new DC Cinematic Universe. A [...]

4 out of 5 dentists think Momoa's Trident is pretty bad-ass, too. (Yes, I'm ashamed I just typed that...horrible...must be Friday).

Nimoy's final tweet: Life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory." (And social media).  Perfect.

"Since my customary farewell would appear oddly self-serving, I shall simply say... [shows Vulcan salute] Good luck."

Farewell, Leonard Nimoy.

Hoppocalypse is an IPA from Apocalypse Ale Works. It pours a deep copper with a two-finger off-white head that recedes to a thick skim and leaves soapy lacing.

There is a fair amount of caramel malt in the nose, accompanied by fresh notes of honeydew melon and citrus hops. As the name implies, it delivers a massive payload of pine and citrus bitterness (110 IBU). But there is an equally strong malt sweetness which balances out the palate after the initial hop blast.

Medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a clean finish. At 8% ABV, it's no lightweight, but there is little evidence of alcohol in the taste. I give it 8.5/10. (And a big thank you to Beer Fairy +Michelle C!)

If you dare point out that Pres. Obama's words and actions exhibit a bias against the USA, he's gonna sic his Twitter followers on you. Sounds like Giuliani hit a nerve.  

#UMadBro
The White House issued a subtle response on social media Rudy Giuliani's claim that the president doesn't really love America. A White House tweet Thursday about the designation of three new national monuments

I was thinking the same thing, Doug. If Obama "loves" America so much, then why has he been working so hard to fundamentally transform it? You don't fundamentally transform something you truly love.

Madness takes its toll. Please have exact change.
Introduction
12th generation American and father of three daughters. A Nerd who has leveled up to Geek. Collector of tattoos. Lover of craft beer and top-shelf rum, bourbon, and scotch. Practitioner of Kobu Shin Ryu kenjutsu and Mugai Ryu iaihyodo (Japanese swordsmanship). I occasionally dabble in illustration and writing. According to Myers-Briggs, I'm an INTJ.

Politically-speaking, I'm a Constitutionalist who believes in individual liberty, capitalism, and the free market. I get along with folks of all political stripes so long as respect is reciprocated. 

Whatever I choose to do, whether it's work or personal, I take it very seriously. But myself... not so much.

Here are some of my interests. Let me know where you and I share common ground:
  • Comics / SciFi / Geek culture
  • Craft beer aficianados
  • Politics (part conservative, part libertarian)
  • Harley-Davidson
