The New iPhone! (That Time of Year Again)


In the spring of 2012, my wife Tara and I were in Baltimore for my cousin's wedding. The day before the big event, all family members were charged with running various last minute errands all over the city. As my massive family stood crammed together in one room to receive instructions on where to go and what to pick up, I noticed everyone typing addresses and notes into their smartphones. The room soon emptied of bodies like secret agents on highly-classified missions, leaving my wife and I … [Read more...]

8 To Go: GGR Reviews Breaking Bad: “Blood Money”


From Geek Goes Rogue TV Editor Zach Lorton, as told to by the hat rack that is longing for a porkpie...WHAT IS HANK GOING TO DO??!?At the end of the previous episode of Breaking Bad, "Gliding Over All", I didn't care what kind of life Walt and Skyler would have with their kids or if their marriage would be reconciled.  I didn't care what youth-fueled shenanigans Jesse would get himself into now that he has cash to flash.  The only question that's been burning in my mind since September 20 … [Read more...]
