Cracker Jack recently came out with a new "Cracker Jack'D" line of modernized Cracker Jack snacks.  Great idea, but a lot of the flavor combos are strange choices.   Spicy Pizzeria?  Tried it and it sucked.  I can't think of a time I thought "I would love some spicy marinara sauce as a snack right now."

But just now I gave the cheddar bbq flavor a try, and it's pretty decent.  Would buy again.

They had tons of bags of these sitting on the table at the last company meeting I went to.  Tasted one of them (cheddar BBQ, I think) which I thought was absolutely dreadful.

I love my Gilette Fusion.

If you have to shave your head on a near-daily basis, it is a must.

Hmm...  I'm not sure if I'd be able to notice the difference.  My shaving needs are less "shaving off a full head of hair" and more....

Its my go-to for face and scalpwork. The vibration seems to help more when I've left it for three+ days.

I do not manscape with it. YMMV.

It's made with custard, and that is why it is so good.

We switched to a Keurig about nine months ago.  Our old coffee machine died, Costco happened to be having a sale, and I know a number of people who rave about it.  Not a fan, generally.  Sure you fill the tank less often, but it's supposed to use filtered water which takes a longer time in my fridge.  Also storage of all the packaging is a real pain.  And never mind the waste of throwing the little plastic deals out constantly.  But most importantly, the k-cups result in less caffeine in your morning cup(s) of Joe.  As a result, I wind up having a lot more coffee.

That said, I finally found the perfect damned cup of coffee from a Keurig: Peet's Major Dickason's Blend.

There are some other decent ones.  Donut Shop is popular for a reason.  Some of the Starbucks ones are decent.  Martinson Dark Roast.  But this is the one I look forward to every time I put it in the machine.

It's rich and dark without being too dark.  Creamy and smooth with just the right amount of bite at the back of the throat.  I didn't think I would ever really love anything that came out of the Keurig, but I've been having these for a couple of months now, and it's just that good.

Major Dickason, whoever you are, I salute you, you magnificent bastard.

I have a Tassimo at home (was given to me) and a shared Keurig at work (we all pitched in).

I love both for different reasons.

Cafe Crema on the Tassimo is fantastic - the Keurig doesn't have the same market restrictions though, so you can get more and different coffees on it.

(No, I don't need a home coffee-brewer-war - having enough fun with the terse civility in the PS4/Xbone thread). slywink

If you're going through that much trouble you should get a Clever Coffee Dripper:



It's almost all of the wonderful flavor you get from a French press, with all the ease of cleanup you get from a traditional filter drip machine.

Still has the less caffeine problem with the added feature of much more mess and a not professionally-balanced mix of grounds.

Eminem released Marshall Mathers LP2 today and I spent most of this morning listening to it on Spotify (love I can listen to new releases to help me decide if its worth a buy) and after sixth track Rap God I was sold.  Ordered from Amazon and with Auto Rip had it on my mobile in 30 sec.  You can tell Eminem has aged on this album and its a good thing.  He is still full angst, but its tempered with age.  I mention the track Rap God and it solidifies his place in my opinion as one of the best lyricist in the MC game.  His switches style so effortlessly on this particular song I've only seen one other MC do it quite as well and that's Tupac

If you're of fan of Eninem I don't think you will be disappointed.

Review of the Vitamix 5200s.  This thing is a beast of a mixer.   My wife brought one home after getting reeled in by the demo.   So far, it has lived up to expectations and we've created some awesome drinks with it.

It's a lot more efficient for juicing than the LaLaine juicer we have and we can easily get 3 times as much out of the fruit we use to get from the old one.

Cons: it's $400 for a fucking blender!?
