Check out my new display!

One fun step I took with the home remodel was retake and the room which used to be my office. With Jennifer being around, I had to go with a room that’s more private, blah blah blah. So I decided … Continue reading

Marquette Day 2022 was pretty cool

This year’s Marquette Day was celebrated at a place called Cover 2 along 183 up in North Austin. I had been there over a decade ago for a Stars event and the place was still a Hooters (ugh). Our opponent … Continue reading

Moscow Achieved…just great

Had I known Putin was going to invade Ukraine with so much certainty, I would have skipped Moscow as the next destination but it happened. It’s not the Russian people’s fault and they don’t deserve to be punished over something … Continue reading

RIP Sally Kellerman

It’s sad to see yet another person who contributed to Star Trek pass away. Sure, most of you cool kids know her as the original Major “Hot Lips” Houlihan in MASH the film but Sally played Dr. Elizabeth Dehner in the second Star Trek … Continue reading

Well…I guess Putin is…not sure, but the invasion is a pisser

I readily admit I was wrong about Putin and Russia. I didn’t think he’d go for a full-scale invasion. I figured he was going to continue his Crimean strategy of having Russian regulars hide their uniforms and pose as local … Continue reading

RIP: The Amazing Jonathan & Mark Lanegan

A sad day for entertainment in general. A big loss for Comedy and another for Music. These two people weren’t super famous but they contributed to those who capitalized on the work they laid down. First up would be The … Continue reading

A little jab at Social Media and American “expertise”

Cute little dig at really the world to some extent but I wouldn’t say the argument about vaccinations versus the tensions involving Ukraine are apples to apples. With the former, there’s a problem of Idiocracy causing too many to not … Continue reading

Today is Presidents’ Day and the GOP shows its true colors

Firstly, from a non-partisan standpoint, February is technically not the best month since more US presidents were born in October (six) versus the four on this month. When I was growing up in IL, there was no such holiday, we … Continue reading

One Thousand Days!

Not bad, it just took me about 6.75 years to do this and sadly I managed to get here without going to the gym every time. All those recent, stressful days involving the floor installation or when walking all over … Continue reading

Cat-Cow-durday!

What timing to get the kitty to peek out from the back of the monitor! Meow! or Moo? Being the proud human caretaker over a tux kitty, Agamemnon is filled with surprises and the majority are good. Let’s see how … Continue reading

A great time at the Furniture Mall of Texas!

The next step in Operation Manhattan, new furniture! While I had the dumpster, the old bed and couch were ditched! I never liked the couch, it was a piece of crap. The bed needed to go since cats hide under … Continue reading

Stubb’s Amphitheater acquired by greedy Live Nation

Another live venue destroyed by growth, the Pandemic and “progress.” I don’t believe Live Nation for a minute on the changes they’ll implement, except one, jacking prices through the roof. It’s a pisser and I’ll believe it when I see proof … Continue reading

P.J. O’Rourke, one more selfish Boomer finally dead

The news came rather late about him passing away from lung cancer, I would’ve gone with smug or intestinal cancer from eating his own dog food, a favorite insult I often received from an incredibly lazy Libertarian co-worker. To many, … Continue reading

My 12 Honey Mustards in Ural will invade Ukraine

This is the scenarios I think we’d all rather see since McDonald’s and Chik-Fil-A could cut off Putin’s supply more easily than the EU. I also regret to point out a different theory on the Earth’s actual shape to those … Continue reading

Farewell to Home 2 (Hilton) in Pflugerville!

Our joint home-away-from-home since January 27th has come to an end! It was mostly for Jennifer since I could still hang out at my place until the contractors showed up and I was with them all day. However, since I … Continue reading
