The latest stray to grace my patio, July 2021

This morning I dropped in to feed Isis and Agamemnon before rejoining Jennifer for our mani/pedi time. Meanwhile, this little cutie just strolled up to the door, explored the porch, probably get out of the direct sunlight (heat). My cats … Continue reading

What an awesome birthday gift!

Woo hoo! I saw this over a week ago at Build-A-Bear but thought, hmm, nice but I’m here for other stuff (usually the LEGO store). Then Jennifer completely surprised me! I guess she had to hold in her excitement while … Continue reading

Fifty-three trips around the Sun today

Since today is my day to be king of the world and I could afford to take a vacation day, I will spare the world any long, opinionated, whatever entry. I do want to thank Jennifer for making these last two … Continue reading

The kids didn’t sleep much and wet the bed, I wonder why?

Well, at least it wasn’t called Pennywise’s or Uncle John’s Crawlspace of Fun. It doesn’t market successfully with adults neither. I recall, the term clown implies incompetence so if you want to served by a staff that doesn’t know how … Continue reading

Happy 81st Birthday Bugs Bunny

 After I saw how horrendous this movie probably is, thank you Honest Trailers for saying what we are all thinking, I do owe it to Bugs Bunny to watch. I actually went to the first Space Jam on opening night 25 … Continue reading

Let’s see Red Amerika solve this

If you want to see the six questions better, click on it and it will zoom up. I sent a copy to one college friend with a PhD in BioChemistry who is super smart. Why? Well, I trust her expertise … Continue reading

Early birthday present from Classic Gamefest

To all you non-gamers, what you’re seeing is a dice tray. It keeps the dice from flying off the table, etc. so the adventure can keep on progressing and cut down on the debates on whether or not what the … Continue reading

What’s wrong with this picture, July 2021 Edition

What’s really frustrating is that America is capable of doing both. We don’t need private asshole-billionaires (who don’t pay their taxes) trying to claim the Moon and Mars as private property. I won’t disagree with the criticisms from the Sixties … Continue reading

RIP Jackie Mason

The majority of people younger than Boomers know him as Krusty’s rabbi father, a role he returned to play about a dozen times. Pretty good for a recurring guest character. He was also Navin’s brief employer in The Jerk, until the … Continue reading

Stage Four restrictions return to Austin, thanks dickheads!

Austin has a pretty good vaccination rate but remember, we’re surrounded by Texas. This is a land filled with Ammosexuals, Neo-Confederates, Bigots and morons unaware their protests of “nobody helped me when I was on food stamps!” is a contradiction. … Continue reading

1996: The Daily Show launches

Damn! Time flies too quickly at my age. I’m glad this outlasted South Park and probably will. It wasn’t necessarily Comedy Central’s first attempt at current events-based comedy. Bill Maher’s Politically Incorrect didn’t survive ABC’s cowardice and Maher’s love of his own … Continue reading

Congratulations to the Bucks!

It took them 50 years but Milwaukee’s NBA franchise finally won its second championship after numerous teams failed to get there. When I lived there near my waning years at Marquette, I grew to be a fan through my part-time … Continue reading

Happy posthumous birthday to Robin Williams

Today would’ve been his 70th birthday and we really needed him during the Girth Vader years to make us intelligent and empathetic people cope better. I do feel somewhat bad about liking Robin again near the end of his life … Continue reading

Perception then and now

The person who modified this cartoon to fit today’s dilemma was being too generous with the MAGAt’s answer. Given how blindly loyal and stupid they are, the MAGAT’s reply shouldn’t even be a number, it would more likely be “Jesus” … Continue reading

This sums it up most days with vinyl’s resurgence

Having grown up with vinyl and cassettes, I honestly only miss LPs when it comes to an autograph from the artists. Playing LPs remains a colossal pain in the ass. In its defense, it is helping my favorite Austin store, … Continue reading
