Gilmores had the superlative jukebox. This particular box had a number of big band 33s, my favorite - Tommy Dorsey's "song of india", Artie Shaw's "in the mood", Bobby Darin "mac the knife" , of course, classic Sinatra and Tony Bennett and for us youngsters, plenty of new music, like Question Mark and the Mysterians "96 tears".
And even though he didn't have a dance license, there were enough cops that hung out that Pat wasn't worried about being…Continue
smoked em, luckys for the longest time
that taste of spice and pepper
like the men back then
swore em off a long time ago

trump admin has job openings!
blog up your wildest fantasies and you too can join the clown cadre.
We watched All The King's Men last night and I'll be damned if this isn't the playbook for the Trump phenomena. Not FACE IN THE CROWD - where a relatively great guy is totally corrupted by the power of populist love - which I've always felt…Continue
I thought the oscars started our really great - I had hope. the timberlake bit was upbeat and kimmel was funny, but for me, the weight of all the faux glory and ultra self congratulation and pretension began weighing it and me down so I fell…Continue
hello again from boring as hell, hell.
today I share good news:
the hard cast is on! this means I can flop around, fall sideways into walls and worry be damned!
getting around is tough. crutches require me to actually lift this fat ass of minw as I balance it and the rest of me on my dubious, "good foot" like a goddamned ballerina while hopping. for protection and stability the all new bionic foot is encased in a fashion forward, rock hard, plastic shell impervious…Continue
I can't do much, my right leg from the knee down is in what might be called a soft cast. It's really - I don't know what's really going on in that lump and I won't know until my genius doctor pulls back the beige and puts the real cast on, which will be - assuming I don't fall over and bash in my skull or some such shit - should be Thursday.
Feeling under it seems like there's…Continue
put it over there
it’s old you hear me?
take a razor to it you say take a razor to it
and slash the worst away
put it over there…Continue

politics is numbers.
my thinking is this - to increase the number of voters for progressive causes, to deliver votes for progressive candidates and agendas the smart move would be to reach out to the people who haven't voted progressive not only this past election but who have been gradually voting for conservatives for the past six years.
there's a real opportunity right now.
will we use it or are we so in need of feeling intellectually superior we'll make this…Continue
Here's a link to Rodney's blog - The Resistance; what are WE going to do?
Nerd's words in italic, mine in regular, beneath.
re "her baggage and poorly managed campaign" (JMac) are so often said to be the causes of her loss. I think she has that baggage because the Rs ran their 30 odd year smear campaign against her so brilliantly that not only the right bought…Continue
they're assembling now.
one half looks like their favorite dog just died.
the other half just got a new puppy. happyhappy!
I've never seen so many false eyelashes assembled in one place in my life!
the crowd is yelling TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP!
and here he comes..........
WHOA trump's hair is under control and appears relatively normal...meaning not like a yellow shag rug that's about to take flight!
pense appears so smug, so hopeful, so fucking…Continue

angry buddha guy's blog that I'm answering:
PAGE TWO <--- THIS IS the absolute BEST BLOG - it's just so unassuming and nice and honest and makes me really like the guy. So I suggested an OPEN CALL. this is it. Forgive me, if I overstepped.
truth: I am honest to a fault. I’ve lied but when I was young and ridiculous. so I’m…Continue
I just responded to d.vega's blog regarding the right's take on the russian's hacking our election. it doesn't matter much to me why, the fact remains they stuck their fingers in our system and skewed an outcome.
to my thinking, it matters not who is in office, what matters is our electoral system was tampered with and the outcome of a number of elections - not just the presidential office - were changed. that should concern all americans, left, right, middle. that would concern…Continue
I wrote this some years ago. every couple of years I tweek it because I still haven't exactly found the right balance/rhythm. but it's a fun exercise. I love that I wrote a poem that features dirty harry in it.
I try not to become lost
and stay the safe and narrow
but there are times the air is so warm …Continue
man, he could deliver! this is one of my favorites from his album "songs from the last century". he sang it live during a concert with pavarotti and he did a bang up job of it. I almost posted that video but this rendition is my favorite. the next video is "wild is the wind" is from the same album. …Continue
so in spite of good intentions, I didn't get to work on my friends painting until today. this month has been about going back and forth to doctors and then going to other doctors for opinions. I got some seriously good news in spite of having that ankle fusion which is set for early february.
one of my great fears was something in my back had gone seriously wrong, maybe permanently wrong and might require spine surgery, which…Continue
