Oh, How The Mighty Have Fallen…..

Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho, it’s back to stinkin’ work I go….. Yep, I’m rejoining the work force of America….. Got offered a job I couldn’t refuse…… I guess money does talk in some cases….. Supposed to be a nice cushy office gig with my own office…… Hopefully, it will turn out to be as good as sounds….. […]

Clerks II…..

J and Silent Bob are at it again……. Kevin Smith’s Clerks II is in the theatres and I’m going….. Anyone else?…. Should be good if you enjoyed any of the off-color, off-beat humor of his other films….. I’ll probably go this week-end and file a report then…. If anyone has already seen it, give us […]

Do you like your Beatles sliced or diced?

Check out these jumbled-together Beatles tunes by “Sacred Cowboy”. A friend turned me onto a radio program called “Do or DIY” which plays all sorts of twisted stuff.  The June 19th show featured “Norwogian Weed” (see link), probably the best of the 5.  Enjoy!

Speaking of Airlines…….

I have a question……. On the national news yesterday, they ran a story on the airline’s recovery from 911….. The three major airlines were showing profits from 150 million to 350 million this year, which is more than double their profits for the same period last year…… They accomplished this by cutting flights resulting in […]

Money Maggots At Work…….

Oh, I guess I’m supposed to be politically correct and call them magnates, but I think maggots fits much better…… Not really being a sports nut nor a gambler (I think if gambling laws were enforced you would see a very serious drop in the interest of professional sports)…… At 5:00 pm CST today, the […]

Need a Pick-up?…….

No, not one with four wheels or a health drink – an acoustic guitar pick-up…….. I was ready to lay down some acoustic guitar tracks for the song I wrote, but didn’t want to use a mike because the old living room is not soundproofed from the noisy neighborhood and with 100+ temps, I wasn’t […]

Is Everyone a Self-centered S.O.B. these days?…..

……or am I just the only person who runs into them?…… I sold a piece of property a few years back…… The person I sold it to was a friend of a co-worker……. Seemed like a nice hard working person with limited resources, so I sold him the property on a payment plan spanning over […]
