It's Shadow on the Mesa, starring Kevin Sorbo, hitting from Hallmark on December 17th. Here's what they have to say for themselves:
I first enjoyed Shiner Bock in its home state of Texas. I was on a vacation with my mother, sister, grandmother and aunt and we were in a restaurant in San Antonio. The waiter suggested Shiner Bock to us as a "Texas beer" and we all tried it. And enjoyed it. Shiner Bock, at that time, was only available in Texas and it was "the beer" at most restaurants.
Additionally, as per my mother, grandmother and aunt, it was the only thing that made the non-drivers able to make it through the interminable hours driving across the Texas desert. There was a reason I was only on the San Antonio part of their trip.
Shiner expanded its brewery about two years after that and I've been able to enjoy their Bock whenever now. It's a good beer: tasty, not too hoppy, with a nice carbonation and flavour. Per the Shiner site and write-ups, the Bock is their "flagship" for their family of brews and if you haven't had it, do. Good beer.
I have a minor philosophy in life that basically says: make small corrections. There are major philosophies as well (like never start a land war in Asia) but the minor ones tend to come into play more often. The small corrections are about change and how we implement it. Some people tend to overreact. It's like when you're driving and become distracted, then look up and realize you've drifted into the other lane. Some people simply ease the car back to where it needs to be--while others freak out and swerve all over the road. I'm more of the ease back over guy.
So it is with my workspace. I work from home. I'm kind of "eh" on the idea...but we make do. So I've got my work machine, my personal machine, and dual monitors that I can use with either machine individually or both at the same time--and of course a mouse and keyboard that I use on both. I've had virtually every type of keyboard you can imagine. Big and small, ones with built in touchpads and even a built in trackpoint like the Lenovo Thinkpads use. Gaming keyboards with eighty-seven extra buttons, etc. But what I've missed, really missed--but didn't realize it until now--is the old "clicky" IBM PS/2 style keyboards.
It's the third season of Shameless, hitting from Warner Brothers in a DVD/Blu-Ray combo pack. That comes out December 17th. Here's what they have to say for themselves:
It's Weekend Justice: the Internet's #1 audio trainwreck--the podcast that, in the end, is neutral about who plays Luke Cage, since pretty much anyone who would be up for the role could kick our collective asses.
Note: Before I begin, I'd like to state for the record that I understand that no one has died, no one is on fire and no one is trapped in a car that is rapidly sinking into a lake. I am about to rant about a smartphone, which is the epitome of a "First World Problem." There are many other problems in the world that are a bigger priority than this one. In fact, most of them are bigger. However, this is a pop culture site that considered The Last Airbender a war crime. So perspective is something we are well aware of yet choose to brush aside for entertainment purposes. You know that, I know that, and so...let's begin.
It is well documented on this site and on podcasts that my previous phone was a Samsung Captivate running Android. I have a personal rule. Understanding that I would be, if left to my own devices (no pun intended), one of those people who buys every single new and shiny device that came out, my rule is that I can't buy the next X until the current X dies. So I am very careful about what device I buy, knowing that I am stuck with it for a while.
There's a lot of stuff that comes out all the time, and the companies are want your attention and mostly...your coin. But, you know, it's your coin and you have to take care where you spend it. With these posts we try to take you through recent releases so you can make up your mind. If you find the info here to be of use, do us a favor and purchase stuff from Amazon through us. Especially if you were going to buy the stuff anyway. That gives us kickbacks, which help pay for things. Like the server. And coffee. And therapy. We thank you.
To help you through the Monday Blues, here's your friend and ours, Rufus Hound. Star of stage and screen, Doctor Who aficionado and blow job advocate, here he appears in a 2009 episode of Argumental, the debate improv comedy show. This iteration of the show was hosted by John Sergeant, and the opposing team captain to Hound was Marcus Brigstocke.
My favorite thing about Mr. Hound is this: have you ever played a sit down arcade racing game and decided to explore what happens if you veer right through the hedgerows and see if there's a shortcut or some wild hidden off-track area? Hound often does that with improv comedy shows. Enjoy.
