073: 2013 Gift Guide – Pt. 1

Well hello there fine chaps! It seems it is that fine time of year again when we all start gearing up for the holidays. The parties are planned and scheduled, good times are shared, and goodfaith compromises are made on how much weight gain is acceptable between Thanksgiving and Jan 2nd. For most people it’s also a time of exchanging gifts, and in case any of you are looking for a little inspiration we’re here to prep you before you find yourself wandering the mall on Dec 17th in a spiked-eggnog fueled daze with no idea what to get anyone except your self. Also, don’t forget my birthday falls conveniently halfway between now and the old 25th of December so anything you want to pop in the mail is up to you. Follow the jump to see what’s in store.

009: The Tuesday Breakdown 12.03.12 Holiday Wishlist Edition Part 2

Another Tuesday, Another List. Today we continue and finish my Holiday Wishlist rundown, just in time for my birthday tomorrow.

11. Some Days You Just Don’t Have The Energy For The French Press. [$19.95 – $299.95]

Or maybe you have say, 8 other people waking up from a night of drinking and your piddly little press [no offense intended, I love my press] just isn’t going to cut it. Time to call in the BFG of coffee makers, the Technivorm Moccamaster. Capable of making 40 ozs of perfect coffee in mere minutes, it fits the bill for fueling up for a day of cloistered work-from-home or assuaging the hangovers of your closest amicis. And hey, why not whip up something greasy and delicious to go along with that all that hot java lava.

006: The Tuesday Breakdown 11.28.12 Holiday Wishlist Edition Part 1

Look at that. It’s Tuesday again already. Take a little break from your daily drudge and gaze upon the things I am most desiring this December since it contains both Christmas and my birthday.

1. Cards Against Humanity [$25/Free]

Do you like Apples to Apples? Do you have what some people might politely call a dark sense of humor? Do you and your friends like to have something fun to do while sitting around drinking? If you answered Yes to any of these questions than Cards Against Humanity might be for you. I haven’t played it yet, but based solely on description I want it. Only made in small batches and becoming incredibly popular means it is often sold out, but the good news is you can print out a version at home for just the cost of ink and paper. Or if you have a corporate job where they don’t track your printing it’s free!
