This Is So Meta

Have you guys seen this new commercial for Facebook/Meta? If not... here it is. If you've got about a minute to waste, give it a look.

Avoid the Noid

I'm not sure if I've mentioned here that I'm a pretty big fan of┬áThe Goldbergs.

Swagger Wagon

Welcome to another easy post. One of those in which I just share a video from the YouTube. This is a classic from our good friends at Toyota (who does not sponsor this blog, but probably should since my current and previous cars are/were both Toyotas). It's basically a long-form commercial for the Sienna. I … Continue reading Swagger Wagon

Scary on So Many Levels

Several years ago, I first saw this commercial. They played it again the following Christmas. This is my nightmare... I mean, not so much the giant nutcracker. I can deal with that. It's the... well... you'll see...


Being sick for the last couple of days, I've gotten to thinking about the possibility of some disease spreading across the globe and reaching pandemic proportions.
