Swimming with Sharks September 30th, 2008 @ 8:17 am PDT
Jason just linked to an article at The New Yorker with a list of the five scariest movies of all time. I’ve only seen one of the films on the list — The Silence of the Lambs — which I thought was a great thriller, but it didn’t particularly scare me. Cannibals and serial killers […]

Play a song, click the Genius button, and iTunes creates a playlist of other songs from your library that go great together. This sounds like a cool idea, although I consider myself already pretty handy at creating smart […]
Tom Brady and the NFL September 9th, 2008 @ 9:15 am PDT
Yesterday morning on ESPNRadio’s Tirico & Van Pelt Show, Mike Tirico asked if the NFL was in jeopardy because of the season-ending knee injury suffered by Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Scott Van Pelt — rightfully, in my opinion — argued that the NFL is going to be fine. Tirico countered by asking if Tiger Woods’ […]
