Just the news, big deals, not-so-big deals, birthday, anniversaries, announcements, mostly timely stuff. The news that applies to the personal world around me, not what you watch on cable or listen to on the radio.

1996: Fox News begins and never stops lying

Twenty-five years ago, Murdoch and his minions felt the other corporate-owned networks were too far to the Left and/or Liberal. Mainly in how Clinton was skating toward a second term against Dole. Obvioulsy this meant there was a “media bias,” … Continue reading

Jennifer has a new job!

Jennifer’s offer came through after a few weeks of campaigning and searching. It’s a traveling gig. Why the change? I’m not going to elaborate because I don’t want to be a part of any bridge burning, you’ll have to ask … Continue reading

Happy third birthday Agamemnon!

This crazy little guy gets to celebrate his third birthday (an estimate from the shelter) and I’m grateful for every day he spends with me. If you didn’t remember, he had a near miss with an early appointment for the … Continue reading

Crocs will always be disgusting

The shoes that were standard issue in Idiocracy before they became the gross standard we see often on grubby children and adults who’ve just given up, wants to convince us they’ll be good for the planet. Not buying their greenwashing, even … Continue reading

Happy 6000th Post and Star Trek Day!

One of my favorite TV shows and shared universes celebrates being on the air for 55 years! It’s amazing it ever existed given how much NBC behaved like they never wanted the darned thing. Then history repeated itself with Next Generation … Continue reading

Texas Snitch Site still on the move, rejected by Nazis!

To be fair to Epik, the host declined to help the Snitch Site not over the abortion issue but its collection of personal information and we know the White Power/Neo-Nazi movement requires secrecy. Remember, every identified asshole from Charlottesville lost … Continue reading

Texas Snitch Site flees to join host for The Daily Stormer

I wouldn’t say the commercial web-host companies were exactly righteous, upstanding netizens or concerned Americans, Kapitalism often sides with oppressors unless it results in negative press/attention; see the US firms caught working with the Nazis. GoDaddy didn’t have a problem … Continue reading

Same address for 20 years!

I wish I could time travel back to around the days I was in high school during one of the many heartbreaking, painful moves. Of all of them, I’ll go with when we left Houston for Indicrapolis in February 1984. … Continue reading

1981: Austin Chronicle starts

When I first moved to Austin, I definitely got hooked on the Austin Chronicle and even said, if they had more comics with TV listings, you don’t need to buy the pro-Cancer (aka “Growth”) rag know as the Austin American-Statesman, a sad … Continue reading

When entering Texas, set your watch back 150 years

It’s all over the news and of course Twitter, probably FeceBook (I don’t miss it), so on. Being a Bernie supporter (no regrets), but not an unreasonable one (not a Bro); it’s all our fault as per the lazy, knee-jerk … Continue reading

September 2021 is here but school starting varies

Back in July, I celebrated Aliens turning 35. In honor of starting Marquette 35 years ago, I decided to go with Rodney Dangerfield’s most successful movie. I tweaked the colors to be more in line with my alma mater. It’s not … Continue reading

Afghanistan nightmare is over, new one coming

I want to make one thing clear, I’ve never been a fan of the 20-year debacle that destroyed thousands of lives and pissed away $2 trillion. Both could’ve been put to so much better use, namely infrastructure and elevating millions … Continue reading

The COVID Ages? More like Dungeons & Dumbasses

It’s a good thing dragons aren’t (or weren’t) real. I could imagine this happening but over the years, I’ve learned through books and documentaries that the people from the Dark through Middle Ages weren’t as stupid or superstitious as we … 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

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
