Inane Drivel Post #1

If Bush were a “Rock Star”, would he: A. Play guitar B. Play air guitar C. Be an off-key back-up singer D. Dress like Michael Jackson E. Be Michael Jackson F. All of the above (except A)

(Lack of) Post-tivity, serious, thereof

Ya take a small deviation to the Great Northwest (eh?….) and you just don’t find the time to post, or so it seems…. I’m still here and I really thought my fellow slackers (namely you, and you,……. and you, too) would give me a hand and Somebody, ANYBODY, would post something of some interest…… Instead, […]

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Hope you all eat too much and come away satisfied. I am thankful that this blog was created so we can all have our own soapbox to shout from.

RIP GM 1978-2006

Well I guess you have all heard the news. Monday GM announced that they will close the Oklahoma City assembly Facility. I worked for a GM contractor for 2.5 years and was laid off last Oct. and guess what the UAW did not do squat for us. We were told “that’s just how it goes” […]

Software Recommendations

The Nick Drake post is getting offtrack with computer talk, so I thought I’d start a new post.  Randalf asked about spyware blockers and anti-virus programs. Here’s a quick rundown on various software and service recommendations.  Anyone else, feel free to chime in with your favorites.  Note: I did not perform anywhere close to an […]

Sour Grapes

I’m not usually a “sour grapes” type person. Did anyone watch the OU-Texas Tech game? I felt screwed, blewed & tattooed. And I know……….It’s just a game

Notice To The Public

Be It Known. price viagra Despite other personal failings, Jek did not screw up our computer.

Church and State

I Quote: Amendment # 1 of the Constitution of the United States of America “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ” That means that the state shall not establish an state sponsored religion, they shall respect ALL RELIGIONS and make them all feel welcome in […]

Nick Drake

Singer-Songwriter from late 60’s (now deceased). I read an interesting review on him over the weekend. Sounds like it may be pretty good. Anyone heard anything by him? Curious minds want to know!

An Award and observation…..

I hereby award J.J. the nickel-plated copper star award with the Presidential Seal imprint for having the most (so far) comments (24) on individual post entitled The Next Prez – a political quagmire of simplicity……… As an appropriate ending comment to that post, which will undoubtedly start a new onslaught of comments, I submit this […]

Dukes of Strat (Successor?)

Got this from MSNBC this morning. “The Kingsbury Manx aren’t your typical pop band. Their name sounds British, they’re from North Carolina but don’t sound Southern, and they eschew the typical catchy pop hooks. The title of their latest album, “The Fast Rise and Fall of the South,” sounds like it could be used for […]


Being a relative newcomer to this Blog, I went back & read some of the old posts. One in particular I enjoyed was the one about your favorite album or cd of all time. I think one of the criteria mentioned was that you had to like every cut on the album. There are several […]

Stones to Ashes (Rolling that is)…….

Here’s one you might be interested in: In 1988 an Austrian company tried to acquire future rights to Mick Jagger’s body……. The company planned to cremate Jagger and pack the ashes into hourglasses to sell to Rolling Stones fans…….. Anyone want to see Mick make an “Ash” out of himself?….. I wonder just how big […]

Look what they did to our song, mama

By Albert Brooks Newsweek Nov 14, 2005 issue – So NEWSWEEK tells me they’re working on a cover story about a generation getting ready to turn 60. They ask me if I want to write something. I say, “Are you insane?” You want to do a magazine cover about turning 60? Do you want to […]

Reprinted from Sept. 2002 — Pitt junior Brandon Smith wanted a tattoo that proclaimed his manliness, so he decided to get the Chinese characters for “strength” and “honor” on his chest. After 20 minutes under the needle of local tattoo artist Andy Sakai, he emerged with the symbol for “small penis” embedded in his flesh. […]
