LEGO Back to the Future Set is Official, Coming Sometime Next Year…I Hope

One off projects are the worse when you want one of your own.  Case in point was that "Back to the Future 2" LEGO set.  If you recall, it depicted the Hill Valley scene from the movie in which Marty hovers across the water whil...

2013 Kia Soul Review

I never thought that anything associated with a hamster, and an oversized hamster at that would have any draw or appeal.  After all, they're hamsters.  Vermon that convey no disdain for running for hours inside of a plastic bal...

Samsung UN32EH5000 32-inch LED HDTV Review

Nintendo’s Wii U TVii Services Arrives December 20th

I don't have a Wii U in my possession.  I have, however, used the gaming console, albeit to a limited extent.  So it's a bit difficult for me to truly comment on the controllers true effectiveness in terms of actual gameplay.  ...

These He-Man Pint Glasses Are the Booze Power of Grayskull

I'm stupid for nostalgic toys.  And probably worse, I'm really stupid for items that celebrate such toys.  I'm not saying I'd spend hundreds of dollars on such an item, but if the right price and of course the right item presen...
