What Did I Miss?

The National College Football Championship ended up being between two SEC teams; Georgia and Alabama.  Living in Georgia made me aware of that fact, and having no affiliation with either team, I literally had no "dog" in that fight.  I was gripped by a mixture of anger and nausea as I watched the pretender to the Presidency walk onto the field, flanked by marines, but I endured.

So, watching two evenly matched, undeniably talented,teams should have been exciting, but I turned the T.V.…

The Worst Ever

The Worst Ever

 

You told me that I'm the worst you ever knew

And I haven't a clue

When I never laid a hand on you

And I never raped you,

THE THING IN THE WOODS PART II

The creek wound around at least half of the farm. A row of trees lined the banks of it on both sides leaving a long shadowy trail that left the water dark and ominous looking by the time late afternoons rolled around. I hated ever getting in there much less when the…

The Thing In The Woods Part I

It seems just like it all happened such a short time ago as I look back on my childhood. Living thirty miles from the nearest town put us quite a ways out from the heart beat of the general public. Just me, my paw, and my little brother and that farm. Way out in the middle of no where was our home. I still…

Jerry Lewis passed away today

He was 91. I'm too young to have been aware of him when he was at his peak, particularly with Dean Martin. His telethons collectively earned well over a billion dollars for his cause.



His career took off faster than anyone's I know about. He was twenty years old playing a club in Atlantic City, a singer got sick, he knew Dean and suggested him as a replacement, saying they could do an act together. Dean showed up, they hadn't produced the joint act, the owner went to Lewis and said… Continue

Fleeing the Borg Through the Constellation of the Crab

 

We Are The Borg

Those of you who are Star Trek fans will remember Jeri Ryan’s character, Seven of Nine.  When captured Seven of Nine was a member of the Borg, a collective of humans who had been fitted with devices that made them androids, unquestioning subjects of the queen, and always a member of the collective, always in sync as a single great mind.…

Oscar Stunner — How Pleasant Run of the Mill Show Turned Into Nightmare For Announced Winner

Got to start with the appropriate lead in a review about a show sometimes fun, but never great, had an acceptable host with occasional clever bits, didn’t have big surprises for most of the awards, including announced winner La La Land for Best Picture.

Co-presenter Warren Beatty seemed to toy with the crowd as he fiddled with the card, which he then showed to Faye Dunaway, who…

What If?

(A reprint of years ago, which seems good today.)

There was no bad news on tv, radio, or online today?

Suppose we turned on the morning news and were greeted with our favorite morning anchor.

“Good morning, the entire world was at peace last night.  Not one war happened.  There were no shots fired.  There were no bombs blowing up anything.  There were no abandoned, abused or kidnapped children.  There are no violent deaths to report.  The…

gender/ sexuality zeitgeist 2015, massive link pile

hi all. just read today that Playboy magazine down to 800K circulation (from ~5.5M in the 1970s), and losing money ($3M/ yr) in the US, just decided to take out the nudity from its future issues, in an attempt to increase its circulation/ relevance.[c19] they found on their web site that hits went up when they took out nudity. SHOCKING! and this is not an april fools joke! (hefner is almost 90 now...)
