Really Pointless Kitchen Gadgets

Anytime you watch Food Network or Hell’s Kitchen, a little spark lights up and get you motivated to cook. It really drives you to wow your family and friends with your culinary skills….however if you don’t really cook that much to begin with, you are quickly reminded how lazy you are. Kitchen gadget companies know this little tidbit about you and make “must have” gadgets that will simplify life in the kitchen. The only problem is that there is some really stupid crap out there and for some reason, people actually buy it. Now any trip to Bed Bath & Beyond will probably turn up a few stupid items, but this column focuses solely on things that might actually be inside a person’s home and I’m purposely leaving out kitchen appliances (such as automatic hot chocolate and tea makers) out for another day. But here’s a few that I find incredibly pointless:

First Spidey-In-Costume Pic: First Impressions

So the first image of Andrew Garfield in his new Spider-man duds came out.  Here’s a few things that really jumped out at me upon viewing the picture:

1. Notice the spider emblem: The claw marks really jump out at me, Looks like Spidey is going to have a nice fight against The Lizard.
2. The weird flame-like design by the wrists.

3. Apparently he’ll be having wrist shooters (imo, a 19 year old developing a sticky compound tough enough support the weight of cars, people, helicopters, ect is complete BS, loved the organic shooters more)

I don’t know maybe I’m still anti-reboot b/c I’d rather see John Malkovich as The Vulture, Bruce Campbell as hopefully Mysterio, and I’d be seeing Spidey maybe this year had they not started over from scratch and got rid of Sam Raimi (the guy’s done enough good and 3 was the result of the studio telling him what to do), but this is a pretty decent cool picture. It may surprise me.

Movies in 2011: A Look At What’s Ahead

I had intentions to watch some movies last year and up til June, I was catching a lot of movies, but the problem was that I kind of stopped going out due to having an opposite work schedule from my wife. So some big heavy hitters such as Inception, True Grit and The Social Network were sadly skipped. However, there’s a lot of good coming this year in the way of movies and a lot of them looks like they will be pretty awesome to see. So here’s a few that I’m personally looking forward to:

The Music That Made 2010 ‘010

Howdy, lucidswirl here.

Music plays an important part in my life, and in many others.

2010 saw me run the gamut in genres. However, there seems to be a central theme throughout. Some sort of peaceful hope and awareness while searching for deeper meaning or purpose. Here are my top-five songs (and in some cases albums) of ‘010, in no particular order.
