It's finally getting nice out! Let's all go to Iceland!

No, I'm not taking crazy pills. Iceland is a beautiful island and not another day should go by without you experiencing it. Here's why you should go:

Beijing In Three (Long) Days

(9) Comments | Posted February 24, 2013 | 9:01 AM

Tour groups are the laziest form of traveling. There, I said it. They lead you around like lemmings taking you to all the cool sites a city has to offer plus they do you the "favor" of taking you to special shopping locations.

In Egypt it was a "Perfumery" in...

Screw the NYC Marathon

(275) Comments | Posted November 2, 2012 | 8:52 AM

Four hundred and one miles. That's how much running I've completed since June 16, 2012. Since that date I've spent 75 hours in running gear. That's a little over three days of nothing but jogging. The goal of all this work was to run in the New York City Marathon...

Galapagos Islands: Dos and Don'ts

(0) Comments | Posted August 1, 2012 | 7:00 AM

Planning my trip to the Galapagos Islands sounds daunting at first blush. Connecting flights in Ecuador, getting to and from the airports, picking which islands to travel to, it could make even the seasoned of travelers back out and go to Jamaica instead. Take a deep breathe and take down...

Mets Need to Ditch Closer (Song)

(1) Comments | Posted June 19, 2012 | 12:36 PM

As R.A. Dickey put the finishing touches on his absolute masterpiece on Monday all you could hear was: the knuckleball hitting Josh Thole's mitt, the umpire calling strike three, Dickey pumping his fist, the roar of the crowd and then Bachman-Turner Overdrive's Taking Care of Business.

One of these...

"What If?" 10 Sci-fi Alternate Universe Dreams

(6) Comments | Posted May 7, 2012 | 5:24 PM

What if Eric Stoltz starred in Back to the Future? What if? It's one of my favorite topics to fantasize about (yeah, I know I'm a nerd). The idea of a parallel universe where just one or two things are changed is one of the plot points to the series...

53 Reasons Why We Need A New Star Trek TV Series

(130) Comments | Posted April 18, 2012 | 3:43 PM

This weekend on HBO there was a mini Star Trek movie marathon. Anyone else catch that? It was fun to see William Shatner in his Starfleet uniform and I got a chuckle out of the "cutting edge" graphics going on. Watching these movies made me sad. There's nothing like this...

Why I Love The 2012 New York Mets

(6) Comments | Posted March 30, 2012 | 3:30 PM

Bernie Maddoff. Fred Wilpon. Letting Jose Reyes sign with the Marlins without making a contract offer. Paying Bobby Bonilla until 2035. Jason Bay. These are all reasons Mets fans cite as to why they're boycotting the Mets this season. It's a fair...

Eating Bologna, Italy (PHOTOS)

(2) Comments | Posted February 6, 2012 | 6:00 AM

Overlooked by many tourists in favor of the two major tourist cities, Venice and Florence, it sits between, Bologna is in many ways the heart of farming Italy and should not be missed. Home to the oldest university on the boot and the capital of the Emilia-Romagna region, the city...

Friday Night Lights Recast as the New York Giants

(3) Comments | Posted February 1, 2012 | 1:41 PM

At first glance the New York Football Giants share very little with the fictional team in Dillon, Texas. However, after rewatching the first season this past week, it dawned on me that this year's Giants team is shockingly similar to the Dillon Panthers/Lions. Allow me to recast Friday Night Lights...

6 Things I Learned From Watching Commercials During the NFL Playoffs

In an era where commercials are fast-forwarded more often than previews before a movie boots up on a DVD, there is a time and a place where commercials are actually watched: Live sporting events. This weekend I watched every second of football in real time and thus watched every commercial...

The Best Movies Ever Released in January

Steven Soderbergh's new film, Haywire smashes into theaters near you in in a few weeks, and while Soderbergh is usually a can't-miss director, the fact that this film was scheduled for January is an eyebrow raiser. No one here is saying this movie is a pile of garbage, but why...

The first time I sought out a recap of a television show it was the last episode of the first season of Lost. My buddy forwarded it to me in gchat and I read it very carefully. Happy to know I wasn't crazy that a giant bird really did say...
