Quick Review: Luigi’s Mansion 3

March 10th is Mario Day (Mar10), the beloved Nintendo plumber who has defined the classic franchise for decades. In honor of that day in 2021, there was a great sale on some of the games in the franchise, including Luigi’s Mansion 3. I’d considered picking it up before, but at $21 off retail price, the […]

Review: EGO SNT2102 Electric Snowblower

In my previous post about going electric for snowblowing I mentioned that I needed a few snowfalls to really see how it could handle a Minnesota winter.

Review: ATX Headblade

As most of you know, I shave my head. For decades I’ve used the basic Gillette razor, but lately I’ve gotten a few nicks that have made me question if I should bother to even keep shaving. After one of my co-workers saw the scar on the back of my head from one of my […]
