Cheers

I take shots at pretty much everything here, on my little, tiny piece of the internet. I don’t bullshit, despite possessing one of the world’s greatest stockpiles of it. I don’t give a shit about politics; I usually let the Domestic Despot send in our ballots, that is how interested I am. Besides, let’s faceContinue reading “Cheers”

Unrealistic Expectations

The realm in which I exist according to the Domestic Despot. As I told you the other day, I always send an email to Robin Meade asking her to show up at one of my gigs just to see the look on my wife’s face. At that point I would exist in the realm ofContinue reading “Unrealistic Expectations”

Kung Fu Boo

In the early seventies, kung fu was big. Bruce Lee had every kid jumping and mewling like felines before pouncing on their prey. Dojo’s popped up everywhere and kids name Kyle and Trevor were all of a sudden badasses. I would learn my own lesson from a kung fu practitioner years later, and I rememberContinue reading “Kung Fu Boo”

Tranquilo

Staying calm. Cool under pressure. Not everyone has it 100% of the time. I’m probably in the high eighties if I am really being honest with myself. I had to “beat” a polygraph test in order to land a major casino Executive Chef job in Las Vegas. Answering truthfully all the questions set up toContinue reading “Tranquilo”

Bound and Determined

What the hell kind of expression is that? “Bound and determined”. What? You are tied up, but determined to free yourself? Lame. “Come hell or high water.” Who came up with that? Someone in a flood zone most likely. I still don’t get it. You are going to do something whether you face the firesContinue reading “Bound and Determined”

Funny Haha

Where has all the laughter gone? Here I go sounding a thousand years old again, but who is next in the long line of super funnymen or women? Used to be there were a handful of comics that were at the top and then it tapered down. In the 50’s you had George Burns, JackContinue reading “Funny Haha”

Traveling Man

Not just a classic John Fogerty song, but another signpost along my own itinerary, which was unbeknownst to me. I am posting another short-short-story this time from a lake in Greece, which I found historically captivating and exhausting at once. I love Greek cuisine. Remember we are dealing with the emotion jaded, so have atContinue reading “Traveling Man”

Info Overload

I hope this is not, but first, check out a W&B session song: Now here is the short story The REAL Summer of Love: The Real Summer of Love           We lived in a small two-story house at the end of a shady country lane. There were three houses actually, all similarly constructed of darkContinue reading “Info Overload”

Innocence

I used innocence representing the letter “I” in my book EMOTIONS: Not your Mama’s ABC’s! The story, which will be posted in its entirety in tomorrow night’s blog, details my own coming of age story. See how I went from maddpup to maddogg. The setting is England and a lovely, rare summer that graced us.Continue reading “Innocence”

No Picnic

As promised, my short story Mexican Vacation: Mexican Vacation           Dave lay perfectly still on the cool adobe floor. He kept his eyes shut and listened to the infected rats shuffling across his cell. He could hear the screams of the former occupants of this six-by-six hell hole. In Spanish or English, it didn’t matter;Continue reading “No Picnic”
