WILDLY FRUSTRATED: 2016, you can stop killing all our celebrities off any time now

The personified representation of a year has not changed for quite some time. When a new year begins, it is always depicted as a newborn baby. As the year progresses, that baby ages until, on Dec. 31, he becomes Father Time, an old man who is ready to welcome and relinquish his duties to a […]

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: For a premium service, Sirius XM sure feels like terrestrial radio

I purchased a new car last year – I’m talking 2015 new. It gets great mileage, it’s comfortable, and it even has some power behind it. Listen, I’m not a car guy; I could care less about what’s under a hood, and I don’t know any car guy lingo. I’m lucky I know how to […]

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: Nerdy things I missed ranting about in 2015

We might only be a few weeks into 2016, but I am still feeling a bit reflective when it comes to 2015. Then again, how can I not? 2015 proved to be quite a year; there was an awful lot to get pissed off about. And the fact is, because there was so much going […]

The problem with trying to find those gifts is that you are forced to witness the continuous commercialization of the holiday. Worse […]

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: A ‘hoverboard’ isn’t a hoverboard if it doesn’t actually hover!

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: A ‘hoverboard’ isn’t a hoverboard if it doesn’t actually hover!

I saw a report one morning on ABC’s “Good Morning America” that there is a chance that “hoverboards” can overheat and catch fire during charging. That’s actually all the details I know, I’m afraid, as I totally blissed-out at the onset of the report. The headline made me really excited… actually, let me rephrase that. […]

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: Black Friday is absolutely meaningless anymore

Thanksgiving Day is about families and friends coming together and giving thanks for what we have – the love, friendship, and kinship we share with one another. Yes, there may be some binge eating, libations, naps, and gathering around television sets to watch football and/or parades, but all of that is done surrounded by loved […]

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: The Battle(front) over pricey multiplayer, DLC, and other Forced costs

“Star Wars: Battlefront,” developed by EA and DICE, has been one of the most anticipated games since its first teaser trailer was shown at E3 in 2013. It is a massive, squad-based first-person shooter set in a galaxy far, far away, and it’s understandable why so many gamers were absolutely frothing at the mouth for […]

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: You’ll never guess what has this guy Wildly Frustrated now

There is a war going on out in the vastness of the Interwebs, and it isn’t pretty! There are countless websites battling each other for attention and readership and, for smaller sites, it is difficult to attract those views. After all, if any website hopes to have some kind of revenue coming in, they need […]

The aroma of pumpkin spice is filling your Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, and local coffee shops. Oktoberfest beer kegs are being tapped left and right. Children are learning their “three Rs.” Pundits are on our television screens while politicians are traversing the country. Not only is it autumn, it must be campaign season again and, just […]

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: Activision bailed on ‘Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5’ – and its fans

The “Tony Hawk” video game franchise has been a beloved series of mine since the first “Pro Skater” came out back in 1999. I was a fan of skateboarding before the game was released, so getting the opportunity to skate as my favorite skaters in fictional and real world locales had me STOKED! Luckily, the […]
