Thankfully Yours...

For awhile there, the older I got, the more I wondered how that happened. After all, I have done some truly dumb things in my life, things that coulda/woulda/shoulda resulted in death/disability/incarceration/deportation but somehow didn’t. From great ideas like exploring drainpipes and old sewers... Sign in to see full entry.

"Life is hard. It's even harder when you're stupid..."

The late, great John Wayne, the Duke himself, is credited with the above quotation. He was right. Notice I said “was.” Apparently, in our society, stupidity is permanently in. It doesn’t matter if we’re talking politics or fashion trends, a sort of public idiocy is now in vogue, to be carefully... Sign in to see full entry.

Refrigerator rebellion...

I’m doomed. Living on borrowed time. Any day now I’ll be busy displacing roots in some nearby marble orchard. You see, not only have I happily indulged in all things decreed terrible for you – cheeseburgers, hotdogs, bacon, bacon cheeseburgers, tobacco, alcohol, various and sundry products of mother...

Dystopic Insomniac Reflections...

I finally have reached rock bottom. I can’t think of anything at all to say, at least not in any particular order. But apparently that doesn’t really matter, at least not at 3:17 a.m. Praise God, any one, Allah to Zeus, take your pick. Or not. Oh I could go on ad nauseam about some of the things...

'Tis a fine line we walk...

So I recently read about a guy somewhere out in California who is suing the National Park Service because a 16 pound pine cone fell on his head, causing brain damage, while he was taking a nap under a tree. The tree is a type of pine tree not indigenous to the area and known for producing these... Sign in to see full entry.

Fiddling among the embers...

There’s an old adage, something about never discussing religion or politics with friends or family, unless you want to get rid of them forever. I am finding that to be true now more than ever, especially in this age of social media, where the apex of human intelligence appears to be summed up every... Sign in to see full entry.

Three Rings and a Tent...

Remember the early ’80s movie “Top Secret?” It was a sleeper, brought to us by the zany folks who brought us such classics as “Airplane!” and “Kentucky Fried Movie.” Here was a classic exchange: He: “I’m not the first guy who fell in love with a woman that he met at a restaurant who turned out to be...

My name is Strat and I approved this message...

So I see where once again, some politicians attempted to whoop up the masses with something that didn’t belong to them. Michael Stipe, lead singer/songwriter for the iconic rock band REM, was known, at least in the early days of his career, of singing largely unintelligible phrases and syllables. In...

More deep thoughts...

Somewhere on this planet, they never get old, they don’t get sick and they never die. They never even use the bathroom. Meanwhile, back in reality world, the place where my midlife crisis was the only thing I’ve ever done early in my entire life, I have come to another set of not-too-deep thoughts....

More notes to self...

What’s up with this Ashley Madison thing? For those of you who are somehow able to escape the cacophony of internet noise, Ashley Madison was a website created for the sole purpose of helping philandering spouses all over the world go a-roving, as it were. It was a members-only dating site for... Sign in to see full entry.
