Moneyball: Sports, Markets, and Statistics

I’m not exactly early to the party on this one. Michael Lewis’ book, Moneyball, came out in 2003. I’m a bit of a Michael Lewis fan but I ignored Moneyball for years because I’m not really much of a baseball fan. The bottom line is that you don’t need to be a baseball fan to get something (I would argue a lot) out of this book. If you like baseball, you’ll probably like Moneyball, if you like math/stats/science you’ll probably like Moneyball, if you like business you’ll probably like Moneyball.

Trailer Trash Walk – Revisiting “Winnebago Man”

So if you’re a fan of Jacob (and who isn’t really?), you’ll be able to quickly answer this question:

“Which movie trailer was reviewed on the first episode in which Jacob appeared as a co-host?”

Here, I’ll give you a hint:

May The Schwartz Be With You

5 Movies that REALLY didn’t need transferred to Blu Ray…

Good evening, PaleoPosse.

Today I would like to share with you a bad habit of mine…

On any given trip to Wal Mart and Target, no matter what I happened to be there to buy, I always end up making my way back to the Electronics section… Maybe it’s a ritual from my childhood (I’ll be at the super nintendo Mom!! Come get me when you’re done shopping!), maybe it’s instinctual, or maybe it’s simply the smell of shiny plastic and ozone… Whatever the case, this habit is not healthy.

Ahh the memories…

Now, I consider myself to be a fairly frugal person.  I don’t often make impulse purchases, or buy too many unnecessary things.  I’m the kind of guy that believes, even though I am surrounded by technology every second of every day, I could survive an apocalypse that wipes out all technology.

But now that I have a CAREER, and I make enough money to be able to make a few stupid tiny purchases a month without too much remorse, I have found myself drawn more and more frequently… TO THE BLU RAY AISLE. Dun dun duuuuuhh.

Lucky for me however, it seems like the Blu Ray shelves are being filled with old-ass, CRAP movies that make me nautious enough to stay my thirst for the blood of new 1080p content…at least for a little while.

So in order to keep my hunger at bay for a little while longer (at least until my wedding is over!), I have prepared an utterly disgusting list of movies that REALLY didn’t need to be transferred to Blu Ray.
