I watch TV as part of my job. Rather, I really leave it on in the background, keeping one ear on it while I check out newspapers online. The channel I watch is a local news station of middling calibre, which means I've been hearing the trailer for Confess . . . ()

Someone expressed surprise that American Eagle and Bluenotes are owned by the same company and even sell the same brands. Because it's just so darn hard to tell one shitty overpriced t-shirt from one shitty slightly less overpriced t-shirt. I'm willing to wager that this person would ex . . . ()

After lunch, we go to the Silver Snail, a local comic book shop. He's terribly excited. I pick up the new Daredevil Annual, but his purchase is more complicated; having lusted a week or two after a Master Chief statue to crown his work desk, he had finally reserved one. Today, he h . . . ()
