Companies That (Still) Suck and Movie Reviews

First, special venom today for Winn-Dixie (previous post) for case 790762 which on 3-3 and 3-11 they promised me a reply from their “District Office” and which hasn’t happened. At least we know why they’ve been bankrupt once already. Second, even more venom for Tony Roma’s (previous post) which still hasn’t replied about my issue […]

Heroes vs Lost v2

A long time ago, I compared these two shows. May 2007 to be exact. Two years on, where are we? Heroes just concluded its fourth season. Lost does in a few weeks. More importantly, when Heroes returns for season five, and it will, I will not be returning with it. While there were some good […]

Technorati Suckitude

Technorati is pissing me off. Normally I get a fair amount of traffic from them. However, for two weeks now it’s been not updating my blog posts to their database. That means people who access this blog via Technorati are seeing “last update 14 days ago” — and I’ve been trying to get in touch […]

Today’s Diatribe: Winn-Dixie

This is adapted from the missive I emailed in. I’ve been shopping at the Doral Winn-Dixie on and off since it opened. Today I went in to make a purchase. I wanted a whole box of some FruitaBu fruit leathers (24/pcs) which I brought to the self-serve checkout along with several other items. I also […]

Post 501 or a Pair of 501s?

Yeah, this is post 501. I missed the big celebration of 500 🙂 Life goes on. The blog is at 196,000 hits or thereabouts. I’m going to break 200,000 before the year ends. That’s just mind blowing. Most of the visitors are still looking at Led Zeppelin posts and Daniel Radcliffe posts. So if you […]

Today’s Update Of Random Stuff

I am in pain. Excruciating pain. My whiplash (or maybe something related) came back in full force this morning, though I had warning signs yesterday. I had no neck rotation to the left more than an inch or so. Totally crippled due to pain. My chiropractor saw me and made it a bit better, however […]

A Lazy Sunday

First, Robert Lynn Asprin, author of the Myth series of novels as well as the Phule’s Company series of novels is dead from natural causes in New Orleans. He died in May in bed whilst reading a Terry Pratchett novel. I just found out when I got my new issue of Locus Magazine. Second, Adrian […]

Stupid Ass Companies and Not Stupid Ass Companies

Stupid Ass Company Number One (MacWorld Magazine): I got my current issue of MacWorld (my subscription expires September) informing me I’d been signed up for Automatic Renewal Privileges. They gave me a list of these and it’s mostly stuff that benefits them and not me. Neither here nor there. The renewal rate is $34 per […]

Why I won’t return to Tony Roma’s

Today I had a great meal and decent service, but a really bad experience. I live near Tony Roma’s Doral location. I’ve been eating there regularly since they opened. I’ve been eating at their chain since the very first one opened in North Miami Beach back in the 1970s. Yeah, most people don’t know it […]

All Sorts of Tidbits II

Ah, yes, the compendium type post. Sure to be of interest to no-one, except, guess what? You’re here reading it. So it must interest someone at least little on some level. That or your RSS reader has let you down in a spectacular fashion. First, the blog is approaching 200,000 posts and I expect we’ll […]
