Boston has a new Album out today… for some reason. Life, Love & Hope. Ten years ago we had no cash, no jobs and no… oh never mind.
On Blu Ray today, The Wolverine. Hugh Jackman playing the eponymous lupine with steel claws
Also, Season 16 of the Simpsons if you’re one of the few that’re still interested in collecting Simpsons DVDs.
Tech Toy of the week this week is the Roadie Tuner. Now, I should preface this whole thing by saying I *DON’T* play guitar, or any other instrument for that matter, but I still thought this was an awesome idea.
Roadie Tuner is a device that syncs with any smartphone that will fit over the machinehead of any stringed instrument. You punch in the note you want that string to be tuned to, and strum, and the Roadie Tuner will automatically tighten or loosen the peg until it’s ...

Decided I’d do something a little different for Tech Toy Tuesday this week, instead of new releases and a toy, I thought I’d go around the web and find some upcoming black friday deals.
Best Buy will have iPad 2, that’s the old one, 16 gig WiFi versions for $299, that’s $100 less than normal. They’ll have 65 inch samsung LED TVs for $999 and 55 inch LDs for $499.
Sears has some insane deals on Kenmore appliances. Most if not all will be 30 to 40 percent off that includes ovens, fridges and freezers, and washers and driers.
There is a Playstation 3 Black Friday bundle that will be available in a lot of places, it has the system, The Last of Us and Batman: Arkham Origins for $199
Video Games are on super duper sale everywhere. Don’t pay full price for anything that’s more than a month old. ...

On Blu Ray this week the new Superman flick Superman: Man of Steel.
The tech toy of the week this week is almost all toy, very little tech, but it’s too cool not to share. It’s by a company known as High Roller USA. As of right now they make one product. It’s essentially an adult sized big wheel.
They can’t call it that because of trademarks, but the High Roller features a big, adjustable, padded seat low to the ground that’s built for anyone between 5 foot 2 and 6 foot 6, huge 14 inch plastic rear wheels to help you power slide through corners, a 26 inch front wheel, a metal frame and a hand brake so you can really slide your way through those turns. ...

Tech toy of the week this week is one of those things you don’t really need, but damn it’s cool. It’s the Brunton Hydrogen Reactor Portable Power Pack which is a two Amp power system that runs… on hydrogen. Two Amps isn’t a lot but it’s enough to charge most of your gadgets and it will do it with no waste, and no pollution. The fuel cells can be recharged, and they don’t lose energy over time like a battery does.
The reactor is 5.3 inches long and weighs ...

Really good week for classic rock. We have a new release by Paul McCartney, called, appropriately, New. We have Lightning Bolt, the new offering by Pearl Jam. Eric Clapton’s Unplugged gets a rerelease called Unplugged: Expanded & Remastered, that’s one of four CDs everyone’s aunt has, along with two of the three Beatles anthologies an album of Michael Buble covers. Finally, couldn’t let this one go by: a Mannheim Steamroller Christmas, Symphony II, can be yours, today.
On Blu Ray, Pacific Rim. Giant robots blowin’ stuff up and Idris Elba. I’m down.
The tech toy of the week this week, is called ‘Monsieur’ but let’s just cut to the chase, this thing will be known as The Keurig of Booze. It’s an automated bartender. You fill it with different types of booze, and it will make you a drink.

Your best bet on the classic rock front this week is going to be a Neil Diamond release, which shows you how good a week it's been on the Classic Rock front. Not only is this a Neil Diamond album, but it's a Neil Diamond Christmass Album. It's called. Neil Diamond: The Classic Christmas Album. No songs about lusting after a prepubescent Caroline Kennedy on this one… I think.
On Blu Ray, The Hangover Part III. Do realize, if you buy this, you make it that much more likely that they’ll make a Hangover Part IV. I’m not going to say whether that’s good or bad, but you have to live with that decision.
Tech toy of the week this week is the Pizzeria Pronto Outdoor Pizza Oven and it is… exactly what it sounds like. It’s an outdoor oven that runs on propane and will preheat to 700 degrees ...

Slim pickings for classic rock fans this week, but you may enjoy a sort-of rerelease from the band: The Band, Live at the Academy Of Music 1971. I say sort of rerelease because it’s the same tracks from the Rock of Ages set, with a second set of CDs that have the same recordings, straight off the board.
No major movie releases today, but on the video game front we have one of the biggest releases of the year. Grand Theft Auto V. Odds are good you already know if you’re going to buy this or not, and odds are even better if you’re a gamer you will.
Two thousand dollar lawn mowers are fun, but every couple of weeks I like to pick out a toy or two that’s cheap and practical and this week I have two of them. The first is the last USB sync cable you’ll ...
