Oh No I Didn’t

Oh yes I did. Maddogg was playing his 2-3pm show yesterday at the SycamoreSpring Nursing Home where the average age of my audience was closer to eighty than sixty and I am nearing the end of my performance when I ask the group if they have any requests (careful not to ask for any LASTContinue reading “Oh No I Didn’t”

Take A Breath

A lot has happened lately and you are entitled to a bit of a breather. It is another gorgeous day in southern Ohio, climbing to a muggy 85 today, but before we left Arizona a year and a half ago, there was a string of 32 straight days in temperatures over 105 degrees! I haveContinue reading “Take A Breath”

Whaaaat?

Did I hear someone say the Ukrainians are taking back their land from their sloppy, unmotivated intruders? If ever there was a case of fucking up a war, BabyHead, Charlie Brown look-alike, Putin is a military course just waiting to be taught at West Point. On how NOT to wage  a military campaign. I takeContinue reading “Whaaaat?”

God Saved the Queen

Rest well, Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen of the United Kingdom has ascended to her rightful place among the pantheon of world leaders. No matter what was happening in this tumultuous world, the Queen was always there, as steady as a rock, representing the United Kingdom with class and grace. When a young American boy,Continue reading “God Saved the Queen”

Enough Already

I am sure you already know what I am going to say next… I say enough to these stories that people post on Facebook that show a cat, dumped by the side of the road by some asshole who has forfeited their eternal soul, but are too fucking stupid to even realize it. But theContinue reading “Enough Already”

Enough

Here are some pictures displaying my optimism for the opening match for my Manchester United Reds. You will see a considerable “before and after” effect. I don’t like the new manager (Erik (“cue ball, side pocket”) Ten Hag. I think he is arrogant and reminds me of past United managers that just didn’t fit withContinue reading “Enough”

Goodbye and Farewell

The closer I get to my own denouement, the more people that pass into the Next Sphere that have affected my life. I was a Leave it to Beaver guy. Wally (Tony Dow) was the prototypical big brother from the fifties. I suppose he reminded me of my own big brother. Eddie Haskell was money.Continue reading “Goodbye and Farewell”

Thanks

I was practicing my playlist for my upcoming gig(s) and I thought I haven’t publicly thanked anyone in a while. To the healthcare professionals who continue to fight disease and keep us safe, gracias. To the politicians who know right from wrong and follow through in their actions with that in mind, merci beaucoup. ToContinue reading “Thanks”

Flying Blind

Or by the seat of your pants, if you will. There was a day for it. The gunslinger. The flashy, frenetic operator that was too school for school. I saw them come and go in several of the arenas in which I toiled. The smooth-talking, hip, trendy metropolitan chef with all the right credentials, andContinue reading “Flying Blind”

Getting Lost

You are only lost if you have somewhere else that you want to be. I am the master of getting lost when I only have the simplest of places to travel. Give me an address in a street in a country I have never been to, and I will drive right on up to theContinue reading “Getting Lost”
