  • Moving To New Orleans? Here’s What You Need To Know

    5 December 2015 by
    moving to new orleans

    There are a lot of movies set in New Orleans, from the great—The Big Easy, Angel Heart, and Interview with the Vampire—to the less great—Mardi Gras Massacre, Abbott and Costello Go To Mars, and Live and Let Die. And that makes most people think that they have a pretty good idea about what New Orleans is like.

    But if you decide to relocate to NOLA on a wing and a prayer and a movie plot, you may find yourself wondering where the vampires are or why there’s no suspenseful eroticism with your own cop encounters. (more…)

  • Chicago vs Los Angeles – Which Is Better?

    3 December 2015 by
    chicago vs los angeles

    It’s always hard comparing one city to another because they’re either extremely similar (terrible traffic – check! high cost of living – check! ample booze – check!) or so different it’s like comparing apples to iPads.

    When it comes to pitting Second City against the City of Angels, I must admit to being biased. After all, I’ve lived in LA for 15 years, so clearly I favor Chicago. Kidding. Every city is like your children—you love them all for different reasons. Except, of course, the ones that grow up to be crackheads or politicians.

    I’ll do my best to give you an impartial look at Chicago vs Los Angeles. (more…)

  • Is Auction Hunters Canceled?

    auction hunters canceled

    When it comes to Spike TV’s reality show Auction Hunters, there is a lot of drama, intrigue, mystery, and quarrels—and that’s before they call “action!” Never mind what happens on the show; people want to know what’s happening with the show.

    Rumors have been flying around for the last two years about whether this storage auction reality show was off the air for good or not. Much like the 1980 catchphrase about Dallas, “Who shot J.R.?” fans have been trolling the Internet asking, “Is Auction Hunters canceled?” (more…)

    winterize motorcycles

    Roaring around on your custom hog all summer may give you great delight, but for those of us who prefer to preserve our hearing, nothing makes us happier than wintertime when even the toughest of bikers will trade in their motorcycle for a ride with four wheels and a roof. (more…)

  • Chicago vs New York

    chicago vs new york

    Chicago and New York are like two siblings who are always in competition with each other. Only instead of comparisons like “who’s the fastest runner?” or “who can burp the entire alphabet?”, these two cities compete over “who has the dirtiest dogs?” and “who has the cheapest booze?” (Los Angeles, of course, is that cool cousin that you get to visit in California every summer.)

    So if you’re wondering which city to move to, visit, move from, think about, speak of as if you’ve actually been there, or hide out from the law, these little tidbits of information just might come in handy. (more…)

  • Charlotte vs Raleigh – Best City To Live In

    24 November 2015 by
    charlotte vs raleigh

    When it comes to North Carolina’s two largest cities, sibling rivalry is only natural. Those from Charlotte think that Raleigh is the pesky younger brother while those from Raleigh see Charlotte as the know-it-all older sib. So who’s right? Well, healthy parents would probably say that they loved both kids equally. But I’m not healthy parents. So I’m going to compare and contrast these two cities—right before I make a run for it when all the residents of these two cities come after me with sticks and stones.

    So here is my assessment of Charlotte vs Raleigh: (more…)

  • Sports Card Storage 101

    sports card storage

    If you’re like me, you’ve never wondered how to properly store sports cards. Any cards in my possession always wound up tucked into my bicycle wheel spokes until they fell out somewhere along the way, lost and forgotten forever.

    On the other hand, if you are actually a sports card aficionado, then you probably already know what good sports card storage entails. So this article is basically for the three people who have accidentally amassed a sports card collection from all those packs of Topps Chewing Gum and don’t know what to do with them. (more…)

    Baton Rouge is not just the capital of Louisiana and the second-largest city in the state (population of 228,895); it’s the town that became the capital after New Orleans was deemed “too sinful” in 1846. Boy, it’s a good thing state legislature doesn’t have a say in my life. (more…)
