weird and hot

14 May

This weekend got weird. I think I may have just had too many adventures in the last couple of days. Friday night was pizza (which was good, but didn’t agree with me), followed by Infinity War, which was about what I expected. I thought it was good, certainly, but, probably by design, it never gave […]

mid-week middling malaise

11 Apr

Sometimes, I think, the recovery is worse than the actual illness. I am, by most measures, in way better shape today than I have been at point since my early twenties. Hell, my waist size is smaller than it was when I graduated college. The couple of chronic health issues I won in the genetic […]

for me, it’s tuesday

27 Feb

This weekend was a weird one. I stayed up way too late on Friday night, drinking beer and shopping online. Having gotten a pretty good coupon from Monoprice after ordering a cheap tube amplifier (that I’d been watching for months) last week, I spent $50 on a backup electric bass guitar, their knockoff copy of […]

friday random eleven: “potential furlough blues” edition

19 Jan

It’s been a few years, but it’s looking increasingly likely I’ll be making use of this image (courtesy of artist Dan Nokes) again by the end of the day… I am not loving the possibility, because I like to get paid (especially since I just got confirmation of my performance bonus and not insignificant raise […]

secret wars?

06 Dec

The news of the potential of Disney buying up a big chunk of Fox’s assets and intellectual property hit a fever pitch this week, with talk of a deal being announced as early as next week, leading to exciting possibilities like orphaned Marvel properties such as the X-Men and Fantastic Four “coming home” to the […]

now the year is really winding down

05 Dec

As I mentioned a couple of posts back, the year doesn’t really feel like it’s coming to an end until I see a certain feature on a certain web site. Well, I’m feeling it. As such, I share with you, as I do most years, The A.V. Club’s Year in Band Names feature; a collection […]

it should be this simple; don’t be a dick.

30 Nov

It’s tough, as someone posessing a Y chromosome, to find the right angle to talk about the recent streak of men in positions of relative power being called out for sexual harassment/misconduct. It shouldn’t be, really; somebody engaging in that sort of behavior is undeniably reprehensible, and ought to be called out, shamed and punished […]

No way to prevent this says only nation where this regularly happens

07 Nov

For those who don’t get the title reference, here’s latest instance via The Onion, who posts this same story way too often. Sutherland Springs, TX. Happens yet again. I’m very disappointed, if not outright angry, at the Presidential reponse that “This isn’t a guns situation”, but rather “Mental health is your problem here.” Plus, you […]

annual voting reminder

07 Nov

Yes, I say this every year (sometimes more than once), but it’s important every year. Your local municipality is having an election today. You should be registered (if you aren’t, why not?). Go out to your polling place and vote. Unless you’re here in Virginia or in New Jersey, it’s probably for local offices. Notice […]

spam folder poetry: october 2017

23 Oct

once again, as the spam folder fills up, I recycle the contents into *art*, or something thereabouts. The poems below, as always, are actual extracts from the spam comments this blog receives, arranged according to my whim. Occasionally, I hit on some deep stuff, addressing such varied topics as: correspondence: hello iam Lian your site […]
