Like many LoTR geeks out there, I figured that when Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy finally ended, that was going to be it. There was a sense of finality, a feeling that I’d endured a great journey myself, following the film from its early rumors at the end of the 90s to the [...]
As we enter into the hustle and bustle of the approaching holiday season, it’s easy to forget that holidays aren’t made, or bought, or appropriated. On the contrary, they evolve over time. As I’ve seen time and time again, especially when it comes to food, people have a pretty rigid idea of what and what [...]
If you’ve spent time at SXSW in the past, you might recognize Austin’s own Tolly Moseley, who runs the very sexy and sometimes geeky blog, Austin Eavesdropper.

Here’s an interesting idea we haven’t seen before: take the travel channel and combine it with a food network. What does that recipe look like?

Check out this little HowTo vid. With a few quick cuts, you can turn an apple into a puzzle that will impress and also make eating apples even more fun.
The holidays are quickly and inexorably approaching. And if you’re like me, you’re likely to find a few hilarious (and well-intended) presents under the old Christmas tree, or your celebratory equivalent. Because, try as our families might, sometimes it’s just plain impossible to find a good gift for a geek without some really good direction. [...]
When I was a kid, cheese was a no-no.
