If I had any say in the matter, THIS is the kind of collection that the show would feature every week! In this episode, of MeTV's Collector's Callshow host Lisa Whelchel visits Rick Goldschmidt and his house full of amazing toys and pop culture memorabilia. This is a collection that literally covers every square inch of the house. Whelchel is given a tour of Goldschmidt's … [Read more...] about Collector’s Call — Episode 2 Recap and Review
It's a great day when passionate collectors get to take the stage, and last night's premiere of MeTV's Collector's Call had that spotlight shining bright.

Here's my problem -- Facebook and Instagram are running (or is that ruining) the show. What's the problem? … [Read more...] about Not dead yet!

Every Tuesday, I eagerly await the new episode of the Nerd Lunch podcast, starring three guys I have got to know and appreciate over the years, CT, Pax, and Jeeg. I've had the honor of being a guest on the show twice, which was enough for me to realize I have a voice made for writing, and stash my microphone high up on an unreachable shelf.
