If you're going to a concert, put your phone away. Try to experience life for real, without filtering it through the lens of a phone. More on this in my latest rant.
What the hell is wrong with people at concerts these days? I don’t mean to get all, “back in my day we did things different!” on you. But damn. Back in my day, when we went to concerts, we experienced the concert. We listened to the music. We reveled in the performance full of variations …

Here's my latest rant. Do you use too much?
Companies are ridiculously good at convincing us that we ought to use more of their products than we actually need. Let’s look at a few examples. Each phrased as a question. Each with an answer from the company’s side, along with another perspective. When does my home printer need a new ink cartridge? What my …

Latest rant is about the media who, when they have nothing new to report, simply grab a week-old leftover moldy fish of a story from the back of the news story refrigerator, douse it in present-tense headline sauce, toss it in the evening news microwave, and serve up a foul-smelling lukewarm story that was never any good to begin with. All while telling you it’s the fresh catch of the day.
Instead of the usual rant about something annoying like my insanely high electric bill, frivolous lawsuits, or the annoyingly privileged, this is going to be a different kind of rant. A helpful rant. If such a thing is possible. Modern news media sensationalizes their coverage. Everyone knows this. It’s not new. But the problem is being exacerbated, in part, by the increasing competition from other types of media, and the democratization of publi...

My latest rant is about product placement. What would life be like if product placement was in classic art (or our favorite movies)?
Product placement is deceptive and annoying. It’s commercials posing as as cool content. It’s advertising dressed up as art. It’s product promotion masquerading as editorial content. I wish it would just go away. But it’s becoming more common all the time. So would what life be like if product placement was even more widespread? What …

This rant goes out to the people who give their kids "whoopins".
Let’s play a game. It’s called, Which one of these things is not like the other? I’ll give you a list of similar things. You guess which one doesn’t belong. Ready? Go. Illegal Activities Letting your kid ride a bike without a helmet Driving kids in a car without a car seat Leaving your kids …

After a 5 year break, I'm blogging again. My latest rant is about power bills and shady repair guys. Let me know what you think of my new site :)
My youngest daughter’s bedroom is prone to extreme temperatures. When the rest of the house is comfortable, her room is regularly 5 to 10 degrees hotter or colder, depending on whether it’s hot or cold out. She’s too little for blankets. So in the winter, so she goes to sleep dressed like the little brother from A Christmas Story. After naps in the summer, her bed sheets have a sweat outline that would pass for...Read more ›

That's probably a better way to help make sure others don't fall for the same thing...
