You Were Right, World: Finally Watching Friday Night Lights

I have finally watched an episode of Friday Night Lights. I feel like I just drank Brita water for the first time or just discovered the Internet. Right off the bat, I’d like to thank Netflix and their genius online streaming for making this all happen. Yeah, Netflix…you know, recently associated with unwatched DVD’s sitting ...

The 20 Best Songs of 2012

Was 2012 a good year for music? I have no idea. Sure, why not? Santigold returned with a new album, Dr. Dog & Band of Horses released some good old fashioned rock ‘n roll albums and Kanye continued to do Kanye things (release good albums, say stupid shit.) In addition, Soundgarden is back and they ...

Dropping Some (notes on) NYC

Day trip with the Wife into NYC Saturday for some people-watching, people-dodging, casual-dining, large tree-gazing, pricey & adorable ice skating, late-night train ride napping. Some notes:   It's not walking, it's combative walking. Just calling it walking would make you think there is some leisure involved. New York City must be a rough place to ...

Hoodies on Tap: Breaking down what makes for a good local bar.

As you get older, you learn that you need a few important things to get through life. You need a loving companion, you need a reliable automobile, you need a place to get your haircut that you trust, you need to subscribe to at least one magazine that comes once a week so you’ll always ...

How I Would Spend $500 Million…

I didn't win the lottery. I don’t even have to check- I didn't even buy a ticket. It’s not my style. How much was the pot…like 500 million…dollars?   Apparently my style is to not take chances to win a shitload of money. That’s fine. I’ll make my money the old fashion way thank you very much.   But ...

Thankfully Thankful on Thanksgiving

For most people, tomorrow is their first Thanksgiving of the year. For this guy, not so. It’ll be my second- such is the life of a married man. I have one more after tomorrow. Besides the obvious things I’m so very thankful for…my wife, my family, health, a house sparred from the devastating wrath of ...

The 2012 Election & the Questions Not Answered

Much like Karl Rove, when quarter after eleven rolled around Tuesday night and Brian “Factually Witty” Williams called the 2012 Presidential Election for Barack Obama, I didn’t believe it. I was settled in for the long haul and had boldly predicted to Michelle, the nice lady who cuts my hair, that we’d probably have to ...

10 Reasons Why You Should Vote

It’s Election Day. You should vote. No really, you should. Why? Here’s ten reasons why…   1. If you don’t, then you can’t complain when the wrong guy wins.   2. Free donuts.   3. Your grandparents, whether or not they’re alive or dead, would be pissed at you if you didn’t vote.   4. ...

Before the Witching Hour Comes: Notes from Hurricane Sandy

There was a hurricane. You probably didn’t hear about, but there was. It was a ball buster. Maybe spend a minute or two Googling “Hurricane Sandy” because really, like no one is talking about it. Actually, only one news outlet isn’t talking about it.   In Point Pleasant we have no more boardwalk and as ...
