This Picture Is Worth…

At the Nux4Life website, there is a t-shirt for sale as a fundraiser. You can buy it here. As with any image, there is a story to be told. Why people are standing the way they are, what is in the background, and how did the image come to be. This tale is told as…

War-Gaming Lord Of The Rings

I’ve been binge-reading a blog called “The Angry Staff Officer,” and he has an excellent article entitled “Center For Galactic Lessons Learned,” where he tactically analyses both sides of episodes four, five, and six of the original Star Wars trilogy.

Shooting the Chat

My good friend Patrick and I got really bored one day after an hour of fist-bumping, and decided to create a podcast. Why? Because the last time I checked, this was America.
