Thoughts On Bigfoot

Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Skookum, Stink Ape…native legend, eyewitness accounts, and no shortage of tall-tales tell us that there is a pipedal hominid running around the remote places of North America. The First Nation tribes of the Northwest incorporated Sasquatch onto their totem poles. The stink ape... Sign in to see full entry.

We Were Very Drunk

I'm tired. And ready for some turkey. Last night I sat at waffle house at three a.m. eating this triple order of hasbrowns, processed potatoes pile high on a long oval plate, scattered with onions, smothered with cheese, diced with tomatoes and topped with chili. I almost threw up but it was good. I... Sign in to see full entry.

A Klondike Poet In a Tennessee Bar

Today I think I'll go look for some poetry by Robert Service. I've been in that 1899 mode since the Friday before Halloween when I dressed up like Rough Rider Theodore Roosevelt and got lucky with a girl at a party. I did some research into uniforms of that era which are some of the sharpest and... Sign in to see full entry.

Women Are From Venus, Men Are From Tennessee

Last night I came back in from Applebees around midnight. I have my dog with me right now because my parents are on vacation so I wanted to sit and have a last beer with her before going to bed. Pabst Blue Ribbon in hand, I took her down the steps and let her run around behind the apartment for a... Sign in to see full entry.

The Replendent Week Of A Honky Tonk Mind (w/ Notes On the Past)

I went to an art show last night in support of a friend of mine who I am convinced is the best artist in Nashville. Her piece had already sold by the time I showed up with my friend David (who happens to be her ex-boyfriend, which throws a kink into my desire to ask her out). I have never been to an...

Ballad of a Jeffersonian Songwriter w/ a Duct Tape Interlude

Seems I don’t write much anymore. I suppose I don’t have too much to say. I get drunk and do my talking at the bar. Information sharing. And who has time to read it even if I wrote more? I’m not even reading the book I was looking forward to a few weeks ago, ( Omnivore’s Dilemna ). It lays in my bed... Sign in to see full entry.

exxonmobile, SteveGill, & Rush Limbaugh Got It Wrong

I'm not sure if the heat has ended. Its been so hot here lately that leaves have dried and crumbled on many trees and every blade of grass in every yard that isn't watered is dead and brown. Creeks have dried up and the lakes they feed have experienced fish die off from the unoxygenated water. All... Sign in to see full entry.

I Found A Dead Animal Today I Didn't Expect To Find

Okay. Of the last nine days in Nashville six have been over 100 Farenheit degrees and the other three topped out at 99...the average temperature being about 89 Farenheit degrees. That stat and a tornado in New York City should have most rational people convinced that we have done something that is... Sign in to see full entry.

Canning Hot Peppers On A Hot Night

Its really hot in Nashville tonight...a 100 degree day which we haven't had since July 2006 and before that not since 2000 (that was a statistic on the news tonight). Its made surveying rough the last couple of days. Today we had to do some topographic work up the middle of a narrow creek. I got... Sign in to see full entry.

General Jackson's Arm

...afterwards I left D.C. as fast as I could. I hauled ass for a few miles around 395 until I hit I-95 toward Richmond and all forward motion stopped. Me and several thousand others wheezed, creaked, and crawled from Alexandria to just past Dale City …and it didn’t speed up much after that. All this... Sign in to see full entry.
