Happy Belated Birthday to Mark!

I think ever since I was invited to his birthday party 10 years ago, which occurred on the 30th, I continue to mistake his birthday as then, it’s really the 29th. It still slipped my mind anyway. Fear not, he’s my … Continue reading

A rather aggressive breakfast

Borrowing the joke from Animal House, I remembered this ol’ gem from high school when Toaster Strudel first appeared in the Eighties. It was on sale at HEB this week so I scored a couple boxes to reminisce what Brian, Cousin … Continue reading

Better than an asterisk by his name

If you lived in Austin, you’d have a front-row seat to what an asshole Lance Armstrong is, his phony-baloney “charity” and the stench of his political ambitions which I’m hoping are derailed by the doping scandal. Maybe he’ll go hang … Continue reading

Belated 19th anniversary to the Jimenezes

RIP Richard Matheson

Matheson is mostly remembered for being the author of I am Legend, the only Sci-Fi book I can recall being made into a movie three times; I’ve only seen the Seventies version known as The Omega Man (it’s very Seventies). For me he is … Continue reading

I’m on a shoe Mr. J!

Mostly everyone’s favorite evil, crazy, lovesick henchman Harley Quinn stars on her own Converse Hi-Top Chuck. I’m not sure why Converse chose purple as a primary color when Harley’s costume uses red with black. The artwork is reminiscent of Alan Davis’s style. … Continue reading
