Invite HBO’s ‘The Outsider’ Into Your Home

The following post contains affiliate links. I'm not a fan of slasher, spooky horror shows. But for some reason, I love reading Stephen King. It's more the suspense than the horror I think. I've read the bulk of King's classics, as well as his more recent novels such as the Bill Hodges trilogy (really good!), and more recently, The Outsider. It's a sequel of sorts to the Mr. Mercedes' stories, as it features the real quirky-yet-lovable wannabe private investigator Holly Gibney. She was a great sidekick character in the Bill Hodges run, but takes a much bigger spotlight in The Outsider. And that's why I was super excited to hear that HBO was ...

The Best Jerky Kit From Manly Man Company Speaks Beef Jerky Truth

I still remember the worst thing I ever put in my mouth. I was working at Wizard Entertainment, a publishing company that put out all sorts of magazines about comics, toys and pop culture. We were mostly 20-something guys that loved superheroes. Yeah, imagine a frat house made up entirely of geeks. That was us.

And then... well, then the most horrifying two words I've ever seen combined... Oyster jerky. Yes, it was jerky made of oysters. Never one to shy away from ...

Watch Me Become a Trendsetter With the Pioneer from Nordgreen

Watches have always fascinated me. As a kid, I recall my very first wristwatch. It had a light blue band with Snoopy dancing on the watch face, his two arms moving to always tell me the time. As I got older, I moved into the digital watch phase and through a number of school years even had one of those neat calculator watches. My friend Ethan had the coveted Pac-Man watch that let you play the game in horribly functioning fashion. It did play the cool Pac-Man theme though! I also wore tons of comic book themed watches in high school and college including a Watchmen smiley face, Death from Neil Gaiman's ...

Nestlé Pure Life+ Adds That Something Extra to My Daily Routine

This post is sponsored by Nestlé® Pure Life®+ but the content and opinions expressed here are my own If you're anything like me, your exercise routine of late has consisted of lifting the TV remote and stuffing pizza into your mouth. But with the weather warming up, I've started  enjoying the great outdoors. And I'm happy to say that Nestlé® Pure Life®+ is playing a big part in my everyday  routine. I'm not a runner at all, but I did promise my wife that this year's goal would be to successfully run a 5k. Who knew that meant running for three whole miles? (Nobody told me there'd be math!) Thankfully, I believe in ...

Yep, over 35 years later, I still have my original Boba Fett action figure! Now, that's loyalty. I've always been a huge fan of reward programs.

Once I collected enough, I could mail them in and about 6 to 8 weeks later, an exclusive figure would show up in my mailbox. I'll never forget the feeling ...
