Music Library… Now Less Filling, Still Tastes Great!

I have a fairly large collection of music compact discs. I’ve mentioned several other tools that I use to help manage my collection (including the Easy Pro disc polisher). Today I wanted to post a review about the cd storage sleeves formerly from Jazz Loft. They are attractive, reduce the amount of space required to [...]

Vandy Wins The “Could Of” Battle But Loses The Game…

The SEC kicked off football with an exciting game last night as South Carolina traveled to Tennessee to take on Vandy. The game went back and forth with a ton of exciting plays as Marcus Lattimore fumbled on his first carry, but Vandy gave the ball back on an interception soon after. USC went ahead [...]

Honey Badger Dug Himself Into A Hole…

Seems that Tyrann Mathieu will not be suiting up for the LSU Tigers this coming season. For reasons as yet unspecified, Les Miles has released him from the team, and he will no doubt be taking his talents to some other school. From what I’ve read he can’t transfer to another division I school and [...]

Bolden Stats Not Impressive…

Bolden’s statistics are not that impressive. I would prefer to have a transfer with more passing skills. It seems that Bolden’s numbers dropped in the second year of his career, rather than progressing. Maybe he’ll do fine, or maybe he’ll turn out to be another “game manager” which isn’t really what I’m hoping for this [...]

Off Season Acquisition?

Penn State quarterback Rob Bolden is transferring to LSU. I haven’t had time to look up his stats yet, so I don’t know what sort of talent he brings to Baton Rouge. However he has at least been a starter, which is something the rest of the current quarterbacks cannot say.

It’s Alive! Apple TV, iPad, and Bose Lifestyle

I bought my first mp3 player over a decade ago. (Would you believe that it’s still being used? I have it plugged in out in my garage and use it to play tunes while I’m working on various projects.) I bought my first iPod seven or eight years ago, and I currently own an iPod [...]

Garth Brooks, Led Zeppelin, And More, Oh My!

Today during my lunch break I went shopping at a local resale shop (Half Price Books to be specific). I often go in to check out the discount rack just to see what’s below even half price. Today I found out that this particular branch had their entire collection of clearance compact discs on sale [...]

Tim Tebow is going to send Jenn Sterger pictures of his smile
A reference to the less than savory pictures rumored to have been sent by [...]
