Stuff I Like for 2015-06-08

Sleepytime Extra Tea by Celestial Seasonings

My wife and I have a cup of this at bedtime every night. Sometimes I’ll have a cup or two mid-day if I’m feeling stressed out. We go through so much of it that we order it from Amazon six boxes at a time.

The Walking Dead

Ah, who doesn’t like a good zombie apocalypse? I’ve been a fan of the genre since my early teens after watching Romero’s films. The Walking Dead–both the comic and the TV show–is enjoyable, and Robert Kirkman has taken the what-if scenario further than any other zombie fiction I’ve read.

inCharge Key Ring Cables

These tiny Lightning and USB cables make clever use of magnets to form a small loop. They’re about as portable as you can get. And they’re cheap!

Stuff I Like for 2015-06-01

I’m stealing an idea from my online buddy Seth Clifford. In an effort to write more, I’m going to try posting some stuff I like semi-regularly. This is the first of those posts.

Tea from The Tao of Tea

Current favorites are their Moroccan Mint, Jasmine Pearl, and Strong Fire Oolong.


The new series from Netflix based on the Marvel Comics character is a lot of fun. Gory, violent fun (you were warned). Vincent D’Onofrio is fantastic as usual.


I’ve had an on-again, off-again relationship with DuckDuckGo for many years. I’m currently trying it again, and it’s gotten much better. The mobile interface feels faster than Google, and the results are better than ever. Is it just as good as Google? Not entirely. But the privacy benefits are worth it.
