Pabst Blue Ribbon, now in obnoxious Hipster cases!

How to transport that is beyond the imagination. Given how icky PBR has always been, that’s not a family pack, it’s a lifetime supply for a few generations.

Well…SCOTUS has now reached peak irrelevance

It’s now official, the Minority Government in power hates women and poor people. This crap rationale of the most incredible verbal, philosophical yoga will be remembered when Amerikan Democracy went from dying to almost no pulse. I figured the country’s … Continue reading

Six weeks of exercise attained!

Let’s see. If we divided those six weeks by the number of days it took to hit this landmark over the last 12 years…I’m averaging around 14 1/2 minutes of exercise a day when ideally it should be 30. Yeah, … Continue reading

A call back to the “simpler days”

Namely that time when the GOP tried to overthrow the rightfully elected and re-elected POTUS for cheating on his wife which hadn’t happened in like…never. I would go out on a limb to say that the philanders are in the … Continue reading

As per Astronomy, Summer is “here!”

We already have had a one-month head start on the heat wave which also means Climate Change arrived years ago but it remains a fiction to the morons in charge with their legions of millions like my dead uncle and … Continue reading

Curtains with the help of Task Rabbit

One of the compromises I’ve had to work through with Jennifer involved my immense Chucks collection. Firstly, she wanted them removed from the master bedroom and a TV placed on that wall. I said absolutely not. There’s no other room … Continue reading

Paul McCartney is 80

Only recently had I given his advanced age much thought. Seems like only recently Alamo Drafthouse had their sing-along for his 64th birthday; 2006 and still at the original Fourth and Colorado location. Paul is doing much better than other … Continue reading
