Wanted: Dancing Paperclip

Apparently times are tough at good ol’ Tarjay. They can’t even afford spell check. Take a look at these screenshots, taken from the Target Pharmacy section of target.com at 1:30AM on 1/30/2011.   Pfft, it’s not like a spelling mistake or typo when filling a perscription could have life-threatening consequences — right?

The Kombucha Experiment

Posted by & filed under .

It’s really interesting stuff that I just got turned on to from a visit to a fancy organic restaurant. They take green or black tea (or a mixture) and ferment it for a month. During the fermentation it becomes slightly alcoholic (about .5%) but the primary benefits are that it gains a ton of healthy […]

Conan on TBS

Posted by & filed under , .

Things I don’t like about the new Conan on TBS. Andy Richter. Please get rid of him! I know he was on the very early Late Night show, but Late Night with Conan O’Brien was at its best when Conan was ridin’ primarily solo. Andy is what I like to call a train derailer. What does […]

Ticketmaster Sells Out Its Affiliates

Posted by & filed under .

Boy, do I feel loved. I own a number of other web sites and on some of them I have affiliate links for Ticketmaster embedded within. This allowed me to provide visitors with accurate and easy concert and event information, and of course brought me a few extra bucks in yearly revenue. Not anymore. Time […]

Migraines and Tension Headaches

Posted by & filed under .

I’ve had both since I was a kid – they run in my family. There was a long period when I was in middle and high school when they disappeared. They were gone so long that I actually forgot I had a history. Fast forward to the year after my high school graduation. I was […]

Welcome

Posted by & filed under .

So. Another blog. Even more results in your search engine navigations. Why read–no, why trust The Wise Guys? Well, first of all, I suppose The Wise Guys could lose the s because it’s just me, for now.  Here’s what happened: I already owned thewiseguys.com domain name and in this down economy, excess spending is a no no. 😉 Plus, […]
