Italian #25: (Giovanni) Giorgio Moroder

Today is the final day of Italian Heritage Month. I may not have written about as many as I did for 2011 but I certainly beat out my terrible output for 2012. Just means more to cover next year! I … Continue reading

Where my car gets her name, part two

I found several, good, comparative pictures of the super heroine I named my new car after. Currently her character is in limbo with DC, I had forgotten Vixen was a charter member of the rather bland Justice League International in the 52 reboot. … Continue reading

Best Costume of 2013 (in my opinion)

That image is burned into the collective memory of millions, including those who didn’t catch Cheers during its initial run; thank you Nick at Night, Netflix and syndication. Also, a big thanks to the site The Clearly Dope for bringing it … Continue reading

A familiar piece of clip art from DG!

Twenty years ago, my then current employer introduced this piece of clip art to its customers (really subscribers). Whoever used this may have filled in the text because the core part is the ghost, bats and border. Whoops! I might be … Continue reading

Thank you rain/temp drop for the relapse…

Filled me full of phlegm and preventing me from enjoying my new car’s debut at work. I feel way better now. Thanks to my doctor helping me balance the medication, mainly upping the Zoloft by 25 mg/day. All this time I’ve … Continue reading

Thugs Bunny

He’s finally back on a T-shirt after the demise of the WB Stores. I found this design at the Ecko Store in the RR Outlet Mall. It reminded me of the hilarious Eight Mile parody on Robot Chicken.

RIP: Lou Reed

The tributes are pouring in all over the media but to me, Lou was in the same company as Bruce Springsteen…great writer, boring performer. I’ll take the Cowboy Junkies’ version of “Sweet Jane,” Duran Duran’s “Perfect Day,” and Eurythmics’ “Satellite … Continue reading

Say hello to my new car Vixen!

What began as a fact-finding mission turned into an adoption/purchase. I wasn’t really, completely suckered by a nice salesman Jon. We’re still nursing a frickin’ rental because our Honda Fit was finally approved for its repair, again, remember, it wasn’t our … Continue reading

Gotta’ lay off the spicy, alien food

Purchased just in time for attending the Spaceballs quote-along at Alamo Ritz this week. Took my friend Jeff to cheer him up. He had been feeling a bit sad and he’s always been good to me. The chest-burster is one of the … Continue reading

Textbook publishers reject mythology and bunk

This great piece of news was probably ignored due to the shutdown and it’s a huge relief since I live in Texas. The Christian Dominionists on the SBOE may finally realize that this state’s size and rising star will prevent … Continue reading

This shirt is the bane of the Dayman!

A wearable litmus test to see which people you encounter are fans of America’s favorite…ok, Basic Cable’s…sociopathic quintet. Since Stern and Jersey Jack will never build an It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia pinball machine (don’t get me started, I already have rules … Continue reading

Vegas 2013: Day Six, Popovich’s animal circus

Monday took the slow approach as the centerpiece to our day was mid-afternoon at PH. We arrived relatively early, went our own separate ways for an hour to kill time; I wanted to leave my card with the nice person … Continue reading

Tonight our Stars roll back into action against their other rival, the OKC Barons. We won’t be attending due to other social/household obligations. However, last weekend they amazed us by wracking up a six-point weekend with 18 goals and a … Continue reading
