This week, SpikeTV unleashed the new season of Deadliest Warrior, a show that pits two historical warriors head-to-head in an attempt to test their skills and weapons to declare one deadliest. Last season, I was turned on to the show and immediately was in love with the concept. Even the two hosts, even more likable […]
Baby Schein #2 was one month old yesterday. Very busy several weeks. I’ll be writing more shortly, including a review of Deadliest Warrior and hopefully, if I get around to it, a bit on why I think Steve Jobs is more evil and much more dangerous than Bill Gates ever was.
