How’s that for a slice of toasted gold?

I was first introduced to the comedic stylings of Simon Pegg when I saw Shaun of the Dead back in 2004. I have since gone on to appreciate Pegg’s work in Spaced and Hot Fuzz. As I sat in the theater watching Shaun for the first time, I had no idea that within five years […]

More Candy!

And it’s not crazy-old candy this time. In fact, you should be able to find this stuff at a store near you (at least for the next month and a half or so). Halloween is almost a month away, so most stores should already have their candy-filled Halloween sections up and running. I always enjoy […]

CJ guests on The Fanboys

Today is September 9, 2009, and I celebrated by rushing out early this morning to pick up The Beatles Rockband. By a strange coincidence, when I pulled a t-shirt to wear out of my closet this morning, I happened to grab my Mega Man 9 shirt. Then, while driving to Best Buy to get my […]
