Retro Fitness named the worst gym chain in America? I've always wanted to go to one of them! How can you go wrong with an 80s-themed gym?

Hockey is back! Cheering on the Golden Knights from central PA!

"Make it smooth to the groove like sandwich bread" may be one of my favorite lyrics from the 1990s.

We essentially have half the county accusing the other half of thoughtcrime - resulting in many people being canceled by platforms that claim they aren't "publishers" and don't practice editorial decision-making over content. As a result, others have voluntarily removed themselves from the same networks in the name of anti-censorship and freedom of speech. We now officially have segregated into two Americas that exist in separate worlds both geographically and virtually. This will only get worse

Right now approximately 3 people control the ability of you and several billion other people to communicate.

Oversaw my mom scrolling through Turner Classic Movies on demand. Among the movies now eligible for TCM status: License To Drive, Cruel Intentions, Clerks, Adventures in Babysitting, and Swimfan. Wow.

Grading is done. Fall 2020 is in the books -- what a weird semester! So proud of all my first-year students who didn't let the pandemic get in the way of their college goals.

I've talked with many businesses and realtors in smaller cities who will confirm that this is happening in force and at rapid speeds.

Miley Cyrus's new Plastic Hearts album is...pretty decent! I was so not expecting that. But hey, #2020. Check out her cover of The Cranberries' "Zombie".

Today I started the process of moving all my websites to hosting that is based closer to home (sorry, GoDaddy!). After A LOT of research, I landed on Pair Networks, which not only has its headquarters and data center in Pittsburgh, but also has excellent customer reviews.

If you're looking for something good to watch, I highly recommend the Showtime documentary on The Go-Go's. Although, I must warn you: if you're like me and thought for over three decades that Belinda Carlisle was totally sweet and, no.
