Nicknames

I was sitting here enjoying a 33% THC Sativa strain and I started thinking about all the nicknames I’ve had going back as far as I can remember. The first one in memory is Markitos, which my grandma and mother used to call me when I was young. At the same time, my grandfather hadContinue reading “Nicknames”

Smarty Pants

I’ve always been too damn smart for my own good. I admit it. Not proud of it, either. As soon as I was able to enunciate, my big brother would have me read aloud every single word of the “Acknowledgements” of one of his high-school level books, even the word “Acknowledgements.” Then he would makeContinue reading “Smarty Pants”

Stay With Me Now

No question that I am, and always have been a big dog lover starting with our family pets to our two Cocker Spaniel brothers tearing through the house tonight. I am seeing far too many stories of children and adults being killed by dogs. Before I go any further in my own thought process, IContinue reading “Stay With Me Now”

Anticipation

I’m ready as I’ll ever be for my audition tomorrow night. I have the six songs I was sent that the band is using to determine their new lead singer. I have checked out all the videos the band recorded and I even skipped my weekly open mics that I do to practice. I willContinue reading “Anticipation”

Beer

I used to love beer. As a chaser. See, I was hardcore. I didn’t drink alcohol to appreciate the centuries of unparalleled craftsmanship, nor the age-old traditions that spawned legendary concoctions throughout history. I drank to get fucked up. Not to be sociable; I’m already sociable. Not to be funny; I’m already hilarious. I didn’tContinue reading “Beer”

Skateboarding

I missed skateboarding when it first came out as an activity for kids because I was living in a tiny Japanese village. However, everyone had a bicycle. Even in towns and even larger cities, swarms of bicycles. When I returned to the states, we didn’t stay in my birth state of California, we went allContinue reading “Skateboarding”

Embarrassed? I think not.

I have been very busy the last few days and I am finalizing my playlist for my 8-11 gig tomorrow night at Woolly’s Watering Hole in Franklin, OH. I’ll give away a couple books and T-shirts so as to leave a small footprint for a possible return gig. Why should I be embarrassed? I haveContinue reading “Embarrassed? I think not.”

Enough is Enough

The little lawn gnome BabyHead Putin is at it again. Enough is enough with detaining Brittany Griner. Call it timing, coincidence, or whatever, but JoJo is heading to Asia just as our favorite North Korean maniac Kim Jong-un has decided on launching a long-range missile test. Go figure. Pakistan just got hit with an outbreakContinue reading “Enough is Enough”

Hoosiers

Not only one of the greatest sports stories ever made into film, but here come the Hoosiers of War. Ukraine. Whatever happens from this point on and I can only unfortunately think it will be terrible for the Ukrainians, they have shown that you don’t fuck around with their country. Except in the movie, theContinue reading “Hoosiers”

Rankings

We have to rank everything. Search best restaurants near me. I saw an article ranking countries so of course, I am a sucker and clicked on the picture. In this particular poll, their Top Five consisted of Canada, Japan, USA, Germany, and Switzerland. I have been to all five and my ranking of them wouldContinue reading “Rankings”
