Hobbit Fights!

Posted: 27th September 2011 by affehaus in cultural, geek stuff, not a sports blog

Because Bum Fights are so passé. Elijah Wood and Dominic Monaghan were at this year’s Fantastic Fest, and they engaged in debate over the merits of World of Warcraft.  First at podiums, and then with their fists.

Take a Ride On My ‘Broom’, Little Boy… Red Bubble has this shirt up, (Master & Wizard, by Zomboy) and quite frankly, it weirds me out a little– especially given Dumbledore’s known proclivities. Really? Mr Potter’s hands are in a rather suggestive arrangement with the ‘broom’, and Dumbledor has an entirely too ‘pleasantly surprised’ expression […]

Where’s Waldo Tattoos: far more prolific than I would have imagined. And several of them occupy, in my most humble opinion, rather questionable placements. more after the jump…

Pie-day

Posted: 23rd September 2011 by affehaus in food stuffs, review

Todays Pie: pumpkin The crust was… a success. It was not my favorite example of the Pie Master’s crust, as it didn’t have the flavor that his pie shells usually exhibit; however, one of my colleagues actually enjoyed this offering more than others of the past. So it goes to prove that you can’t please […]
