It's tax season. Or at least it was, so hopefully you already did yours and got your tax return so that you can make irresponsible purchasing decisions like your old Uncle Alex. I made what is probably my most ridiculous purchase ever with my tax return, and from someone who...
I guess I have a slight reputation as being a cheap person. I would just say that the rest of you are missing out on the joys of coupons. What's more fun than a deal? Obviously when I heard about Bring Your Own Cup Day at 7-11, I freaked out. You can bring any giant cup and fill...
It's no secret that I'm a pretty big fan of musicals. I go to pretty much every production that Broadway in Austin , so they asked me to interview the touring cast of Jersey Boys, since that musical pretty much won every award that has ever been. Pick up tickets to see the show...
The music video for the new Hozier single "Someone New" came out this week, and I have one huge issue with it. Natalie Dormer from Game of Thrones and The Hunger Games is in it. That's not the problem - obviously that's fantastic. The problem is that throughout the video Natalie...

As has been very well chronicled now , I recently came into possession of 40 awesome VHS tapes that took me back to my childhood, so I went out and bought a VCR from Goodwill to be able to watch them. Now, I assure you, the tapes I bought are all excellent. But when I had to...
I'm about as familiar with autotune virtuoso T-Pain as any average NPR listener is, so they were probably just as shocked watching this performance as I was to see that Mr. Pain can actually sing. Like, really sing. He almost tricked me into thinking his infamous "Buy You a...
