I’ve posted an ad for my massage chair on craig’s list. If you live in the LA area, and you’d like to buy it off me let me know. I may be able to offer a slight friends and family discount.

ChessGames.com is a fantastic resource for people looking to get better at chess. You can select players and watch as the games unfold move by move. I never could get the hang of algebraic chess notation. I understand it, but I can’t hold all those moves in my head and imagine the pieces on the [...]
The Rules of Attraction has been hanging out on my TiVo for a week or so. I woke up early without much to do, so I watched it. The movie tries so hard to be edgy and cool. I’d like to say that it fails spectacularly, but there’s nothing spectacular about it. Mostly it’s just [...]

I was all ready to dismiss James Hering’s column, No More “Visits,” Please!. I could see where he was going, and I was pretty sure he was wrong (or just desperate for a column idea to fill inches). But, by the time I got to the end of the piece, I have to say, he’s [...]
