Through the magic of High Future Technology, a connection is made and 34-year-old Me in 2011 has a few minutes to chat with 14-year-old Me in 1991. Here’s how it goes down:
2011: Hey, young me. What’s up?
1991: Nothin’. What’s up with you?
2011: Oh, not much. I’m going to see the Thor movie [...]
This is the kind of year that I really love watching the Oscars. I’ve seen most of the movies up for the big awards so I feel fairly well qualified to judge. There aren’t a lot of clear front-runners or obvious winners. And there aren’t many movies nominated for which I feel that an Oscar [...]
You may have heard of the latest tempest in a teacup last week, in which a girl won a match at the Iowa state wrestling championships for the first time ever.

The stereotype is that comic book nerds still live in their parents’ basement at age 33. I didn’t, but my comics did.
They were stashed away in a stack of big copier paper boxes in a corner of the [...]
As those of you out there who follow my Twitter feed may have noticed, my beautiful wife and I have been on the road for the last couple of weeks, heading for the wedding of some friends in Connecticut.
Along the way, we saw a whole bunch of the country. On our way to the [...]
Out of all the annoyance of the completely idiotic LeBron James saga that has dominated far too many headlines this summer comes something genuinely hilarious. Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert wrote an open letter to the team’s fans – promising that the Cavs would win an NBA Title before BronBron does, no less. But the [...]
Two of my favorite people, as you may know, are Leah and Simon.
Is it because they’re swell folks all around, fun to hang out with and generally good to know? Sure. Is it because Simon was totally psyched to wear a kilt in my wedding, was a fantastic groomsman (how many groomsmen are willing [...]
The scene: June, 2008. Two RECORD COMPANY EXECUTIVES are having lunch in a trendy L.A. restaurant. EXECUTIVE #1, an older guy, is pretending that “cold gin” and a martini are the same thing. EXECUTIVE #2, a young go-getter, is pretending to like kombucha, like people do these days.
