art museum guard blog

I’m searching for reviews on the The Medici show at the art institute of chicago, and not coming up with much. (here’s a page with links) If I were an art museum guard, I would talk to people about the art and then chronicle all the thoughts on an art blog. So then there would […]

Worst Case Scenario

Worst Case Scenario

I was considering purchasing the “Worst Case Scenario” Game. It seems like a fun game with interesting questions, but after reviewing an opened box at Restoration Hardware, I found that I was very unhappy with the cards in the game.

I’ve got this motorized foam disc shooter at work. It’s fun to shoot people with these harmless foam discs at rapid succession. But i think it would be more fun to have lots of people with guns! Herein lies the genius idea. You know how there are fire box things with estinguishers “break in case […]

Here’s a book I remember from my childhood: The Top 100 “The Best Baseball Cards to Own”. You gotta check out that link to see who they have on the cover. Yes! Jose Canseco! I can see now why amazon doesn’t post a picture of the cover on their site.
