Tempting but lobster is a temperamental thing with my stomach. I can imagine that this truck serves the meat on bread and covered in butter. If I’m wrong, please let me know what a lobster roll really is.

Van Halen-themed hotel

Spotted this off Rainey Street but remembered to take a picture. Not exactly sure what the builders were thinking unless they were huge Van Halen fans. I can only imagine the construction workers laying down giant rolls of tape on … Continue reading

Anatomy book out of context!

The caption says, “Muscles make the body move,” if I’m being chased by some horror from an HP Lovecraft story, you can imagine how quickly I can run! 5815

Cat play dates

In preparation for what we hope is the future, I brought my more gregarious cat Agamemnon over to Jennifer’s place to meet the gang (Nubby, Vegas, Morpheus, Orion, Totoro and Roxy). It went pretty well given that in the past, … Continue reading

Tiresome meme turns 10

This proves a theory that I had but never bothered to share because I’m confident everybody thought it too. The people from the original photo were actors/actresses hired to do a series of shots for clip art. Ergo, it probably … Continue reading

What I plan to watch this weekend on HBO Max…

But seriously, I’m not a fan of Zack Snyder’s superhero work or his lame-ass Dawn of the Dead remake. I did watch 300 in the last year or so, it held up. Falcon and the Winter Soldier and For All Mankind are bigger … Continue reading

Virtual SXSW underway

Last year it was cancelled (hooray!). This year they found a way to rip people off by making them pay probably outrageous amounts to “attend” via streaming and/or disappointing Zoom conferences. There’s a sucker born every minute, especially into believing … Continue reading

RIP Yaphet Kotto

Another actor I thought was already passed away, whoops! Still, I’m saddened to see him depart because he was pretty cool. For me he was a great villain (Mr. Big) in Roger Moore’s debut as James Bond in Live and Let … Continue reading

Another little nod to immortality

Last night I stumbled upon this on the way to our seats. How cool to be listed as someone who has stood by my Stars for a decade without interrupting the streak. Even better, my whole name is listed on … Continue reading

Some progress, I fit in a my “new” jeans

One year of officially being in a Pandemic

Hmm. I must be too self-involved. I was rejoicing my refinancing finally going through on this date last year. The UN-led body made it official on this day while Orange Foolius and other GOP morons kept trying to downplay its … Continue reading

RIP: Lou Ottens

Music fans throughout the decades have this man to thank for developing two major formats. His first was the cassette. Before them, tape was a reel-to-reel setup. Great quality for production and editing. Crappy for the average user: the machine … Continue reading
