Another plug

I haven’t been posting here as frequently as I might, although still way ahead of everyone else! Anyway, aside from Audiobook Empire, I am doing some more long-form writing over at my personal site:

That site deals more with my personal life and things like that but I try to connect some popular culture stuff there as well. I would appreciate it if all the followers of this blog check it out, especially if it was something I wrote that made you follow this site in the first place.

New Book Review

I’ve added a review for the book ‘The Woman Who Would be King: Hatshepsut’s Rise to Power in Ancient Egypt to

Almost that Time

One of my favorite things about Christmas in the age of social media is NORAD Tracks Santa. I love to follow it all day on Christmas eve via Twitter, Facebook and the mobile app.

The NORAD Tracks Santa website comes online on or about December 1 each year and so it is getting closer to the big day this year.

Bobby Heenan Rules

I’ve got to give credit to Wrestlecrap for making me aware of this one but it is just too good not to pass on.

Watch Bobby Heenan laugh at Hacksaw Jim Duggan on this episode of WCW World Wide. I don’t mean that he laughs at him for a few seconds, he loses it.

I dare you to watch this video and not laugh yourself.

Video: Watch the Couch Gag from “Simpsorama” The Simpsons/Futurama Crossover Episode

This Sunday night will be one of the best night’s all-time, all my life when the Simpsons crossover episode with Futurama airs on Fox.

I love “The Simpsons” as you can probably tell from some of my more recent posts on this site. But if there is anything I might love more than the Springfield gang it could just be “Futurama”.

Star Wars Episode VII gets a Title

It was revealed today that the next installment in the Star Wars saga will be Episode VII, the Force Awakens.

Now that the title is known that is surely going to lead to more plot speculation as Star Wars titles have always hinted at some major event or theme in each movie.

If You’re Going To Be In Or Near Calgary On December 13 (Wandering Euan, I’m Talking To You!) …

… You can purchase tickets (via Ticketmaster) to see comedian Dane Cook, marking fourteen-years of The Owen Hart Foundation (if you can believe that), who will have shows at 6:30 PM and 10 PM at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium.


To members of the general public, tickets will be available starting Monday, November 10 at 10 AM (prices range from $97.65 to $118.40).

We all know that Casey doesn’t pay much, so let’s hope Wandering Euan has plenty of time to save up.

Thanks to the Discovery Channel, I may Never Sleep Again

This headline <a href="" TARGET="_blank">Discovery Channel to Show Man being Eaten Alive by Giant Snake </a>is bound to cause me nightmares. Horrible long lasting nightmares. You could not pay me enough money to dawn a snake proof suit 

for such a feature. The Million Dollar Man Ted Dibiase says everybody has a price but not me, not for this.

You can watch the trailer for the Dec. 7 show after the jump.

Back in July, Academy Award winner Billy Bob Thornton suggested that he would like to do a cameo on The Big Bang Theory. Thornton is a fan of the show after being turned on to it by his mother.

On Thursday night’s episode ‘The Misinterpretation Agitation’ Thornton got his wish.
