Sometimes, he also reviews viral internet things you probably shouldn’t buy — and some that you should! When he’s not at work, staring intensely into a glowing rectangle (computer monitor), he can be found at home, staring into a separate, more enjoyable, glowing rectangle (the TV). Send him a line if you want to argue intensely about chicken wings.
