Take THAT, Stink Bugs! 
Last fall, I told you guys about our little problem with Stink Bugs. The little stinkers (no pun intended) were popping up all over the place and just grossing us out. Then the winter came and they went into hiding. Fast forward to spring and the reunion began, this time in even greater numbers. We …

Ever wanted to know the story behind a photo? Well now you can by making sure to use the Social Cafe iPhone App with all your pictures!
My dad sends out a lot of photos via email. Especially old ones he finds in his collection of family slides or photo albums. He’s very slowly working his way through them all, scanning them in a few at a time and emailing them out to everyone. It’s a riot to see some old shots …

Fibber is a seriously fun game for the whole family. (Suggest for 7+). It's easy to play and each game is fairly short. And no, I didn't win. #Grrrr 
The nose knows! We had tons of fun playing the Fibber game with the whole family.

The day I sweat buckets...
Today marks my 16th wedding anniversary. Oddly enough, it’s also Allie’s 16th wedding anniversary. Funny how that works. Don’t worry, I’m not going to write a big mushy, flowery post here because no one wants to read that (and it’d make Allie just roll her eyes at me for my Blog PDA). I will say, …

Why isn't this coming to OUR mall?!??!?! #Nintendo
Think your mall’s just for shopping and catching the latest flick? Well, yeah, it is good for those things. But starting this weekend, select malls around the country will be oh-so-much cooler thanks to Nintendo! The Play Nintendo Tour 2014 hits Charlotte, NC today at the Northlake Mall, and spends the next 3 months on the …

What's on your Summer Survival Bucket List? #Rio2Insiders
Next week, the bird-brained animated comedy Rio 2 flies onto shelves. I can’t wait to get my copy, since I really loved the first one. THe kids did too. And well, anything having to do with birds is a-ok in Allie’s book. To help get you in the mood for Rio 2 (and, of course, …

My newest love! #BTTF #Lego
The year is 2014. We don’t have flying cars. Or time machines. Or… sigh… even hoverboards. But we do have Back to the Future Legos. And that’s good enough for me! Allie and the boys got me a Lego Back to the Future set for my birthday last month and I finally got around to …

I give a couple of +OtterBox cases a test drive, and offer my readers a shot at winning one of their new Symmetry Series cases.
Now that Jason’s graduated elementary school, we bought him a new phone. Well, technically, we didn’t buy it, since I was due for a free upgrade in our plan, so I just gave it to him. But the point is, he now has an iPhone 4S just like Allie and myself. Ryan actually has one …

I haven’t seen Rio 2 yet, but my review copy is coming soon. Can’t wait to watch this one with the whole family, since we loved the first one so much. Rio 2 comes out on Blu-ray and DVD on July 15! But that’s like soooo far away, right? There are plenty of hot, sweaty, …

Whether it was movies, books or even comic books, one of my favorite types of stories has always been ones involving animals. I’m talking about the kinds of stories where little four-legged creatures talk to each other, go on adventures and basically act pretty much like people. One of my favorite issues of Captain America …

Freelance writer. Muppets lover. Sushi devourer.
Introduction
I'm officially a Daddy Blogger. You can read my zany antics over at Mommy's Busy... Go Ask Daddy.

I also have a background in journalism and worked as an editor for Wizard, a national magazine all about comic books, video games and pop culture. Additionally, I spent a few years in editorial at Medical Economics, writing about healthcare. I'm a Pop-Culture Addict and love working mainstream hot properties into anything I write! I also write about writing over on AndrewKardon.com

And just for more fun, I'm the President and co-founder of JoeShopping.com, the friendliest coupons and deals site on the web!

I'm also a big fan of sushi, bowling, Twisted Sister, the Yankees, Steelers, my wife and my 2 kids (and most definitely not in that order).
Bragging rights
Painful high score of 199 in bowling. Once ate 56 pieces of sushi in an eating contest.
