For many people, losing weight is easy. They eat less, exercise more, and next thing you know, they’re slightly less porky than before. I have often tried this method myself, but as a sufferer of the horrendous disease laziusdoritosbeeritus, it’s scientifically harder for me than most people. As a result I’ve been toying with a [...]

After many, many years of commuting into Boston on the train, tomorrow commences my new driving to the suburbs commute. In truth, I’m largely indifferent to the switch as there are good and bad aspects to both driving and taking the train.

If you’re like me – and I certainly hope for your sake that you are – you view Food TV celebro-chef Guy Fieri as nothing less than the first horseman of the apocalypse. From the moment Guy first shone his frosted tips on the small screen (during 2006’s Next Food Network Star) he has been [...]

I’m not going to lie to you, folks: Hanukkah has a hard time keeping up with Christmas. We don’t have any seasonal music (although Jews wrote many of the best Christmas songs). We don’t have any animated specials (well, the Grinch is probably Jewish, but I’m not sure if that really helps).We don’t have any [...]

Bradley Cooper was named People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2011, ending the under-appreciated reign of last year’s winner Ryan Reynolds.
Now some people might say that Ryan squandered his term, which ultimately resulted in his big summer movie The Green Latern flopping. I take the opposite position and say that The Green Latern flopped precisely [...]
Well, it’s finally here…the greatest day of the year! As usual, my wife is out trick-or-treating with the kids and I’m home manning the door. The scary music mix is on the stereo and the faux-Rastafarian dreadlocks are on my head. I haven’t eaten any candy yet today so I’m ready for a full night [...]
