Yep, I get these annoying little f—-ers from time to time. I always just wet a cotton swab and use that. It works dry, of course, but feels less scratchy on my throat if I run it under a lukewarm tap first.

It was late 2012. Brand new Surface RT vs. 2011 MacBook Air for a lightweight desktop experience was the scenario. Needed to be able to run MS Office, RDP, and Chrome.

Can confirm. I tested positive about a month ago, and started with very mild symptoms. The thing that first really caught my attention is that my morning coffee seemed super bland. When a person has a daily habit that involves smelling/tasting the same thing pretty much every day, the sudden lack of that taste/smell Read more

The recipe I use is basically this, but instead of the cocoa powder and optional espresso powder, I just add a cup of Kahlua. It adds that same mocha flavor, but also adds more alcohol without making the whole thing less creamy tasting. And y’know, also increases the results by a cup :-)

I’m extra intrigued by the no-gunpowder aspect of this one, if the comanche plot ends up being true. There was a well done fan film a couple years back about a Predator during the dark ages, and it really made me want to see more old timey alien conflict.

I just hope that as thighs become more popular, full chicken quarters will still somehow slip through peoples’ radar and bafflingly sell for less than the quarter’s individual components.

Having cast my ballot already, my plan for election day is to remain fully engaged with my DVR, catching up on everything I’ve been meaning to watch for the past few months and absolutely NOT tuning in to any live TV. Read more

David F. Sandberg (Lights Out, Shazam) and his wife make horror shorts in their home. It’s how he got his start in Hollywood (his original Lights Out short). They’ve kept at it in quarantine and made some new ones that are pretty good. Read more

I remember watching it early (to check that the print had been assembled correctly), and immediately knowing that it was going to be HUGE. But I never would have guessed how huge. It would sell out constantly, which was no surprise. But it Read more
