Eating Out In Eureka Springs, AR

This autumn, my wife and I took a trip to Eureka Springs, Arkansas, to get away for a while. Only 8.5 hours from Fort Worth, it was a great weekend trip, and Eureka Springs has a ton of little places to get a bite to eat. We didn’t use Foursquare on the trip, for privacyContinue reading “Eating Out In Eureka Springs, AR”

Batman: Dark Knightfall Stop-Motion

Confession: my little brother usually had much cooler toys than me, including a full lineup of Batman action-figures, along with the Batmobile and a bunch of playsets and whatnot. That didn’t stop me from playing with them, though. When he and I were younger, we used to spend HOURS shooting our own stop-motion videos withContinue reading “Batman: Dark Knightfall Stop-Motion”

Losing The Man On The Moon

Neil Armstrong passed away this weekend. I wasn’t alive when Neil Armstrong walked on the moon – in fact, I don’t even believe that my parents were married at that point in time. However, I’ve known Neil Armstrong’s name for as long as I can remember. He was the first man to walk on theContinue reading “Losing The Man On The Moon”

Google’s Project Glass Will Change The World

Earlier this year, it was revealed that Google was working on a special pair of glasses – glasses with a built-in camera, display, and interface of some sort – like a wearable smartphone. Eventually, we learned that this was being called ‘Project Glass‘, and now we’ve seen dozens upon dozens of people wearing it, asContinue reading “Google’s Project Glass Will Change The World”

My Name Is Ricky, And I Am A Cord-Cutter

When I was a kid, my sister used to babysit for a family that didn’t have a TV in their livingroom. The parents kept the TV in a closet, and they brought it out with a DVD player periodically, and let the kids watch pre-approved shows. It boggled my mind how those kids survived. NowContinue reading “My Name Is Ricky, And I Am A Cord-Cutter”

Ushering In Babysitting 2.0

With our little babyguru getting older by the minute, it’s only a matter of time before Mrs. Guru and I are going to start needing a babysitter. We’ve got a good solution now, trading off nights with another couple that has a daughter Reese’s age, but finding a weekend that we’re all free gets aContinue reading “Ushering In Babysitting 2.0”

Pure Comedic Genius

Perhaps I’m turning into an old man ahead of my time, but I often get frustrated with the lack of quality in today’s entertainment. Very few TV shows and movies these days are worth the time investment, and comedy is one of those. Don’t get me wrong, there’s some quality content out there today, butContinue reading “Pure Comedic Genius”
