31st January 2012 by admin No Comments

After a lifetime of sinus problems, I have decided to take the best treatment available, as long as that treatment is available for less than ten bucks. Yes, I have purchased a Neti Pot. For those of you who’ve never seen Cougar Town, a Neti Pot is a device for irrigating your sinuses by turning […]

Podcast: Four Guys, One Goal

25th January 2012 by admin No Comments

I had a great time last evening with three of my old friends, Chris Stuckey, Matt “Mattie 5” Bellner, and Zack Spears. We’d all worked together in radio before, and we decided to get together and podcast. It was every bit as blessedly random as conversations between friends usually are. Comedy! Pop culture! Awkward mentions […]

Primary Problems

Well, the results are in from New Hampshire, and all I have to say is, “New Hampshire? Really?” As a political nihilist, I’m at a complete loss to fathom how we take this entire multi-million dollar job search involving a profession with access to nuclear weapons, and we start it in Iowa and New Hampshire. To […]

Marketing Grande

8th January 2012 by admin 1 Comment

Wandering around the other night, I happened upon something that was such a perfect example of marketing that I was momentarily taken aback, and then aforward, for that matter. There’s a product that has a celebrity endorsement that has stood the test of time, and even though now it makes no sense, it’s still the […]

100 Words: Fear

5th January 2012 by admin No Comments

“I’m not afraid of men,” Isaac said. “I’ve fought in the war, and been in fights all my life. Men don’t scare me. All a man can do is hurt your body.” He coughed, and his wheelchair shook. I leaned forward to listen to his whispered words of wisdom. “Short of killin’ you, anything a […]

Discount Keys To Happiness

I grew up as a musician. Well, in all honesty, I grew up in bad bar bands, practicing in garages, playing pawn shop guitars and cheap electronic keyboards, borrowing whatever equipment we couldn’t find used. They were good times, really. There was a kind of romanticism to the era. Anyone who had a practice space, or […]
