Dan Reviews Lady Razors

It was time to shave off my beard and this was the perfect opportunity to test out lady razors. I have never used a lady razor before, but I always wondered what the difference is between a men’s razor and a women’s razor, besides the color. Both are multi-blade razors. Both have magical strips of moisturizer. Both are featured in awful, awful commercials. So is there a difference? Let’s find out! Continue reading Dan Reviews Lady Razors

Monster of the Day #68: The Old Woman Who Lived In A Shoe

Name: The Old Woman Who Lived In A Shoe (a.k.a. Dolorous)

Powers: Strong survival skills; very fertile; mean; good at guessing Wheel of Fortune puzzles.

Weaknesses: Society’s standards.

Origin: She had a lot of kids once and was made the subject of a famous nursery rhyme, though the size of her shoe is often exaggerated by nursery rhyme illustrators.

Rules: Don’t ask her about the other shoe. You’re better off not knowing.

Description: Old, cranky woman with one barefoot. She sometimes dates Old Father Hubbard, who is recently single after Mother Hubbard’s tragic and suspicious death.

Last Seen: Getting kicked out of TGIFridays after losing a fight over the semantics of the sign: No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service.

Monster of the Day #67: Reverse Hulk

Name: Reverse Hulk

Powers: When aggravated, he becomes small, weak, and annoying. (Like most people. SNAP!) When calm, he’s really, really strong and awesome.

Weaknesses: He can easily be lulled back into a state of calm if you just tell him some stupid quote or platitude like, “Don’t sweat the small stuff, buddy.”

Origin: The Reverse Hulk is the result of too much gamma radiation mixed with Red Bull.

Rules: He hates paper cuts, traffic, and cranky online comments.

Description: He usually looks like a giant wrestler and always wears purple cutoffs because he thinks the ladies love his legs. When pissed off, he becomes tiny and green.

Last Seen: In New York fighting The Adequate Four (A superhero family made up of Visible Woman, Mr. Adequate–who has limited flexibility, The Human Person, and The Other Thing–who is just some guy with bad skin).

Author I Like: Joe Hill

Are you a fan of author Joe Hill? He’s a wonderful writer. He’s also using the powers of social media in the best way possible.

His Tumblr is filled with all kinds of writer-y goodness. His Twitter feed is fun and the opposite of PROMOTIONAL OVERLOAD. Not only has he written Locke and Key (one of the best haunted house comic books) but he’s an accomplished novelist too. His latest book, NOS4A2, sounds amazing.

If you’re looking for something to read, check him out.

He’s also Stephen King’s son.




Monster of the Day #66: Pennsylvania

Name: Pennsylvania

Powers: Insatiable appetite; giant fangs; filled with coal.

Weaknesses: Continental shift; zoning laws; other states.

Origin: Pennsylvania is not a state, but a cosmic beast who is resting here on Earth. Someone–I won’t say who–woke Pennsylvania up and now it’s cranky.

Description: It’s Pennsylvania.

Rules: You can’t buy fireworks in PA–at least not the good kind.

Last Seen: Slowly chewing on New Jersey.
