By

Modern Movies

Here’s one for the Other Musings category. I’ve been watching a lot of Netflix lately, and I’ve started to notice something about my movie watching habits.

Steve Jobs’ yacht is ugly

By
December 23, 2012

There’s been a lot of coverage about Steve Job’s yacht being impounded, but the worst thing about the yacht to me is how it looks. It’s ugly!

Sometimes people do things so incredibly inane and stupid that it makes me wonder how our species has survived on this planet for so long. I remember seeing Treadwell’s “Grizzly Diaries” on TV and thinking to myself that he was eventually going to get taken by one of the bears he got so close...

Erich Ritter: Stupid Person Meets Hungry Shark

By
August 16, 2003

I’ve been watching Discovery’s Shark Week. And the show they had on tonight was a hoot. If you’ve watched any of these kinds of shows in the past you might be familiar with Erich Ritter, a “scientist” famous for standing in waist deep water with bull sharks.

By
August 11, 2003

This is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to write in my life since it involves the deliberate murder of another human being. Over the weekend I saw the video of the murder of Daniel Pearl. I have never seen anything like it in my life and I hope I never do...

A Blast from the Past

A Blast From the Past This is a screenshot of the old ZDNet Games channel (this channel existed briefly before gamespot.com became a part of ZDNet). I’ve included it here because it was a very fun thing for me to do and looking at the screenshot reminds me of how far the medium has...
