A shiny WiiFit box was waiting for me when we got back from a long weekend with the family for the Memorial Day holiday. I’ve been eagerly awaiting this game for months, and I’m pleased to say I wasn’t disspaointed. The exercises are not only a blast, but they’re actual EXERCISE – my heart rate was […]

Due to some weird bug with the SDHC card interfacing to my “new camera”:http://www.rollerfeet.com/backporchbeer/2008/04/26/3227/, I thought this footage was lost but I fiddled some more and it suddenly appeared yesterday. This is unedited (and way dark — it was 12:25am) footage I took on May 15th while the storm was raging. You can’t really see […]

Becky has been gone for only 12 hours and it is already clear that I can’t be left alone to wander. The list was simple (soda, salsa, mustard, dessert) and yet I come back from the store with this haul. Two packs of Kristall (A Distinctive Light Fruit Soda in Black Currant and Lingonberry flavors), […]

Yes, I am a couple days behind thanks to Tivo, but \/\/()\/\/… I give credit to Bunim/Murray for making reality TV an accessible reality, but Mark Burnett is unquestionably the master. Many of you abandoned “Survivor” after season one, and while even I have spent a few seasons only half watching while I blog and […]

It is probably old news to many of you, but I _was_ out of town for a week. Another fine Central Texas institution is going away. This will be “the last season for the Backyard”:http://austinist.com/2008/04/24/austins_backyar.php but let’s be honest and admit that we knew the magic was gone as soon they built an *effin’* mall […]

Becky and I caught a few films at Tribecca Film Festival. Here’s the scoop on our favorite: My guess is the marketing for a US release of “+Fighter+”:http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0995029/ will focus on the excellent fu choreography but chop-heads should read the fine print before rushing out to see “this Danish”:http://www.fighter-filmen.dk/ film about a teenage Muslim Turkish […]
