Warning: While I won’t spoil any details related to last night’s season 8 premiere, there will be spoilers potentially up through the end of Season 7. So, if you’re not caught up, you may want to run away—I’ll make sure to “Hold the Door” for you. With a constant shift in alliances due to necessity, […]
Posts focus on what not to do in the workplace, based on examples from television, film, and other popular media.
Here in O’Town, we are thrilled that the Magic made it to the NBA playoffs. In basketball, of course, it’s easy to determine who’s the best of the best—just look at the scoreboard. At your business, however, making hiring and promotion decisions is less objective and more complicated, so here are some tips—brought to you […]
Warning: Contains Game of Thrones spoilers. Ye be warned! April is a big month for Game of Thrones (GoT) fans: GoT’s eighth and final season is set to premiere on April 14. From Entertainment Weekly publishing an all-GoT, 78-page issue to HBO hiding 6 different thrones across the world and challenging fans to go on […]
Warning: Contains This Is Us spoilers. The Pearson couple, Beth and Randall, from This Is Us is one of my top two favorite married TV couples (the other being Tami and Eric Taylor from Friday Night Lights).

For all their recent excellence and success, the NBA’s Golden State Warriors have developed something of a tedious routine. They seem to pull punches during the regular season, occasionally lose games that leave everyone scratching their heads, and go through stretches of apparently disinterested and uninspired basketball.

Of course, Batman, and his long-suffering pals Robin and Alfred, are fictional characters who never grow too old to work. Still, I could not help but imagine the […]
Unless you are lucky enough to live in SoCal or the Sunshine State, you likely have been hit with below-zero wind chills, freezing rain, and/or snowstorms.
