Beisbol!

Minor League Baseball is known for its promotions and its gimmicks, its weird and wild team names and special jersey nights. As a purist, I don’t always like it. I understand it — it’s all about getting fans through the turnstiles and in the seats and finding fun things to attract the crowd — butContinue reading “Beisbol!”

January WordPress Codery

During January, WordPress is running a Bloganuary theme. The idea is that, to get people blogging again, WordPress will send out a prompt that people are to write a post about that day, and they’re supposed to use the prompt and the bloganuary tag. I signed up for this, but the first week of JanuaryContinue reading “January WordPress Codery”

Rediscovering a Piece of Hobbit Music

The things you find on old hard drives… a suite of music based on The Hobbit trailer, before the first film came out. It’s impressive what fans can do. 🙂 I admit — I used a utility to “rip” this from the YouTube video back in the day, and when i found it again inContinue reading “Rediscovering a Piece of Hobbit Music”

A Late Christmas Arrival

The weekend of Christmas I learned that Norah Jones released a Christmas album this year. A Christmas album! From Norah Jones! And none of my so-called friends thought to inform me! I heard cuts from it on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and the day after Christmas on various programs on WRTI, Philadelphia’s jazz radio station,Continue reading “A Late Christmas Arrival”

That Road Tripping Wanderlust

There are times, on my morning drive to Diamond‘s offices in Hunt Valley, that I reach the Shawan Road exit on I-83 and, for a brief moment, I feel like I should just keep going. I’ve no idea where I go or what I’d do when I get there — wherever there is — butContinue reading “That Road Tripping Wanderlust”

Spider-Man: No Way Home

Last night I went to see Spider-Man: No Way Home, a week after I changed my blog theme to a Spider-Man theme. This is the long-awaited film that pits the Spider-Man of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, portrayed by Tom Holland (not the historian and novelist), against the villians of the previous cinematic incarnations of Spider-ManContinue reading “Spider-Man: No Way Home”

Spider-Warp to 2007!

Your eyes are not deceiving you — the website has fallen through a time warp and landed in the year 2007! Over the summer, I went through my directories of archived WordPress stuff. I have hundreds of themes downloaded, the vast majority of which I never, ever used. Sometimes there was something unique about themContinue reading “Spider-Warp to 2007!”
