Ice Just Got Cool – Plus a Tovolo Ice Molds Giveaway ($85 value)

The following is a sponsored post about Tovolo's Craft Ice Molds. Let me start by saying I'm not a heavy drinker. I certainly enjoy an ice-cold beer while watching the Steelers play on a Sunday afternoon. But when it comes to cocktails, I used to only go for the basics like a screwdriver or whiskey sour. Then I met my friend Rob. We worked together and he was a huge scotch drinker. I tried it once and felt like I was burning my throat off. But Rob gave me one incredibly simple tip that changed my drinking life. We were on a plane off to a conference somewhere. Los Angeles most likely. Maybe ...

We Got a Puppy! Meet Ace, the Newest Member of our Family

Photo Credit: Auntie Debbie Forget Coke vs. Pepsi. Star Wars vs. Star Trek. Or even iPhone vs. Android. To me, the biggest debate of all time is Cats vs. Dogs. While I'm a big animal lover all around, I have always been a dog person. Let's face it, cats are... well, kind of jerks. Dogs? Dogs on the other hand may not be as smart as felines, but they are so much more loyal. I mean, they aren't called Man's Best Friend for nothing.

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. Anyways, we often received gifts from clients and companies and for some reason, one day we ended up with a whole bunch of jerky. There were ostrich jerky sticks. Gator jerky bits. 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 ...
