Grubhub added features to make us all fatter

I'll say it out right, I'm a lazy nerd.  My last job created my food laziness with delivered food daily (that I didn't have to pay for).

My current job is awesome and supplies me with anything I want for our fridge, but I've been pampered and still can't bring myself to really cook anything at work.  My coworkers are much more awesome about this than I am.  Tim makes such pretty food, Theresa loves us with Bacon day and Kate makes killer steeled oats.

Lately, I've been getting delivery. I love online delivery.  I hate to have to find a menu and call anyone on the tele.

Thanks to Grubhub (who actually has at least one restaurant in my area, though I wish there was more), I can order online and select my menu without picking up a phone.

Grubhub has just made it easier for me and for everyone:


Users now have the option of paying for their delivery orders with PayPal.

Thanks Grubhub, I am both happy and will solely blame you in the future for the fattening of us all :)

I suck at Todo lists, let’s turn it into a game!

In the spirit of trying to do a blog post every day, I’ve decided to use something to remind me of doing this in a fun way.  I found an app today called “Epic Win.” It’s a todo list app that has a neat twist.  It turns completing your tasks into experience points!  Yeah it’s a quasi game.  I think this is pretty awesome, but it’s not completely as featured as I’d like.  I’d like to see push notifications to remind me of my tasks, the ability to add to my list from the web and the ability to compare my “Hero” with my friends.  

Otherwise this is a neat little app and I love the concept, I really hope these guys implement some more features.

I’m taking up the #Blogin5 challenge, can you?

Clipped from: (share this clip)

Yesterday my coworker Tim wrote about something that actually means something to me.  One of the biggest problems I have in regards to my personal life is that I don't really have time to blog.

As you might know, I'm a contributor to a gaming news/review site and I blog here about things that interest me and things that bring me to passion and such.  It's actually pretty sad that I don't just take time out of my day to write in these blogs, especially since I work for a company that gives me a pretty good tool to put an anchor for a talking piece of a blog post.

So guess what?  I'm going use to blog and I'm going to blog every day for as long as I can (my memory kind of sucks).  Tim's blog post made me realize that it doesn't take look to do this stuff and that I'm essentially just putting it off.  I'd probably have a whole lot more readers and make SFX-360 a lot more happy if I just sat down and did it.

I also know that a number of my regular readers and twitter followers are bloggers too.  I'd love to see you guys blog more often.  I'm going to pledge to blog daily and I think it'd be awesome if you guys would too!  So just like Tim suggested, I'm going to tag on twitter all of my blog posts with #Blogin5 for the things that I've used specifically to get a blog post out.  Why don't you do it too?


7 Deadly Sins Glasses: Gorgeous!

These glasses were made by artist Kacper Hamilton and are available for a limited supply. I know they must be deadly expensive, but I want a set badly!

Mmmmm cardiopulmonary arrest…

Red Velvet fried chicken. Seriously, this kind of sounds yucky, but the mashed potatoes sound like something I”m going to go home and try to cook.

Bill Murray: Hollywood horseman of the American Apocalypse?

I’m just going to let the quotes speak for themselves.  I will note, I received this with much hilarity, these are just the best parts: the midst of our current cultural and economic crisis there is one danger that is subtler than the violence and drugs that is normal fare for major motion pictures these days. That danger is represented in the actor known as Bill Murray.

He is a weak man, a murderer of lambs, a despicable hedonist who waves the white flag welcoming the end of American moral and economic primacy

Bill Murray is a fatal disease and the sad news we bring you today is that your children have been infected.

Murray has explored every cranny of shamefulness. He never appears clean cut or sober, never moral or compassionate. He is a hollow man, a two-dimensional figure mirroring contemporary society’s addiction to half-hearted hedonism

The pattern is familiar to criminologists and it’s not hard to draw similarities to the lives of Jeffrey Dahlmer or John Wayne Gacy. Murray has not yet been charged with anything more than narcotic arrests and drunk driving, but at the very least parents should be deeply concerned. Is it not better to be safe than sorry when dealing with a man who may be the next national scandal for his bloodthirst and perversion? Would you not do everything in your power to protect your children from death and failure?
