Games people play

I realize this is starting to sound like “Amazon shopping week” on the JMD blog, but I really do have some fun stuff for later. However. Since my day is being broken up by some handyman repairs, I’ll just slip in this general babbling about some recent shopping, throw in a dab of history and… Read more »

Little things

I have a hyperactive brain. It’s both a blessing and a curse. It helps me with my creativity and puzzle solving. It hinders me with over-complicating things and over-thinking. I’m used to it. Funny thing is, except for the brain on warp speed, I’m a guy who likes things simple. I’d like to say that’s… Read more »

Battles in outer space

Or, more precisely, out of space. As I recently mentioned, I’ve given up on trying to read via an e-reader (in my case, a Kindle). That leaves me in an untenable position, however. Because, I don’t just like paperbacks (and hardcovers), but I like comics. More to the point, I like that comics are now reprinted… Read more »

But one gadget has exhausted my patience and capacity. E-readers. Spurred on both by the lower prices and… Read more »

Ad infinitum

Here comes the Super Bowl, the only program watched worldwide by millions of people…for the ads. Sure, a few also want to see the football game, but the rest are getting their munchies in between the commercials. Even now, when so many of the commercials are available for “sneak peeks” online, millions just like watching… Read more »

Music drives me

Or, more accurately, music walks me, but that’s just not as sexy a title. In this case, though, music writes me, as I welcome you to a cornucopia of musically influenced random ramblings. Maestro, if you please… You cannot be Sirius! I’ve had XM Satellite Radio almost since its inception. Most of that was the… Read more »

The nutcracker

Do I find it unnerving after my last post clearly stated I am not given to nostalgic romps that my very next post is teed up by a nostalgic act? No, I do not. It’s tough enough coming up with blather to fill up this furshlugginer blog without going meshugeh. So, to begin. I was… Read more »
