It’s hard to overstate how bad and corny Batman Forever and Batman & Robin were. Only time will tell if Christopher Nolan’s trilogy stands up better.
Up With the Static and the Radio Waves
I’ve wondered where my AeroPress came from. Now I know.
The AeroPress was conceived at Alan Adler’s dinner table. The company was having a team meal, when the wife of Aerobie’s sales manager posed a question: “What do you guys do when you just want one cup of coffee?”
Want to buy an AeroPress?
Useful if you need one for the bathroom?

“I value that,” he says. “I like reminiscing. I do it more now watching basketball than anything. Man, I wish I was playing right now. I would give up everything now to go back and play the game of basketball.”

Glory days well they’ll pass you by.
A great history of video games along with a look at the damsel in distress trope in video games.
It’s less of a “don’t play these bad, women-disempowering video games”, as the host is clearly a fan of the games, but it’s more of a call to modern developers to do something different and recognize the patterns they’re falling back on.
Looking forward to part 2.
A successfully Kickstarted game that looks like a great way to spend 3 hours of a day if you’re a military/history nerd. Battle of the Bulge for iPad from Shenandoah Studio is $9.99 in the App Store.
I spent a few afternoons in high school setting up games of Axis & Allies. By the time you got to play the game it was time to head home. This seems like a much better way to enjoy a game like this these days. Especially when you’ve got little kids running around that could knock over the game board.
