I'm not going to lie. I'm kind of annoyed that this post is even coming out of my brain...but dude. Seriously?? The Duck Dynasty dude is an idiot. But take a step back for a minute and chill the fuck out.I'm sick of people blowing up the Facebook and Twitter feeds about First Amendment bullshit.I … Continue reading Well, F**k a Duck

Yes, But Did You Have Fun?
It's human nature, I suppose, when mentioning that you traveled to a distant city to be asked 'That sounds neat--Did you have fun?.'Especially when that city is some place like New York City (or in my case, Queens--which is close enough).And I chuckle to myself when I hear this, because I know the person asking … Continue reading Yes, But Did You Have Fun?
I seriously don't know what the deal is.I just feel kinda...'meh.'Oh don't get me wrong...I have some pockets of joy and bliss. And those are increasing. But it's the rest of the time where the focus and 'joy' seem to kind of just get put on the sidelines.Once I get in to the actual activity … Continue reading Holiday Funk
No Time for Humbug
I really was on the fence about the whole Christmas Tree thing. And then one of my friends said something about liking to turn out the lights and just watch the tree.And I got to thinking....'ya know....I like to do that too.' The scene in Christmas Story where they turn off the lights and just … Continue reading No Time for Humbug
Why Bars Are Better Than Facebook
So...I'm reaching the point in the year where I'm getting fed up with the bullshit on Facebook. When I find myself saying 'Lighten the fuck up people, it's only Facebook' more often than I say, 'wow...that's cool,' then I know it's time to dial my exposure down a bit. I don't think I need to … Continue reading Why Bars Are Better Than Facebook

It's the look on the kid's face.There's all this chaos going on around her...and she stands her ground once. And almost stands it a … Continue reading I’m Not A Policeman
Bombs in the Bassbins
I need to take a week or two vacation. I need to head down to the farm. With my laptop...a decent set of cans, and the reference monitors. Maybe a guitar and a mic. And I need to write (fiction/songs/poems) and I need to record.I just need to see what comes out when it's just … Continue reading Bombs in the Bassbins
It's weird, yeah? I'm sitting here....alone in my apartment.I'm not going to lie. There were times in my marriage (well...both of them, actually), when I thought that I'd fucked up by getting married. With my first marriage, it wasn't so much the case because I've got an amazing daughter and there's not a single fucking … Continue reading Catalysts
To Tree or Not to Tree
So...first Christmas alone in...well...ever. Even after the first divorce I had my daughter living with me, so there was another person in the house. The decision to put up Christmas decorations was an easy one. She was a small child...I wanted to share the joy of the season with her. No brainer.After this dissolution, though, … Continue reading To Tree or Not to Tree
