People: Those We Lost in 2022

Tough year. Particularly tough for me was Taylor Hawkins. I’ve been a Foo Fighter fan for years and years. In fact, I couldn’t listen to Foo Fighters music from the time I learned of Taylor Hawkins’ death, until the London tribute concert — 5 and a half months. Gone, but not forgotten.

The Funniest Fucking Podcast

I like podcasts, and have liked them for a long time. I’ve listened to SModcast since episode 3. I’ve listened to WTF with Marc Maron since episode twenty-something. And, of course, I’ve listened to and/or watched This Week in Tech and MacBreak Weekly forever. My point is, I’m a big podcast fan, and I’ve been […]

The more you say I can’t say something

The more you say I can’t say something, the more urgent it is for me to say it. And it has nothing to do with what you’re saying I can’t say. It has everything to do with my right — my freedom — of artistic expression. That is valuable to me. That is not separate […]

Chappelle on Saving America from Itself

Recently rewatched some Dave Chappelle standup. Dave Chappelle, Sticks and Stones (2019) at 40:39: I’ve given this a lot of thought. I don’t see any peaceful way to disarm America’s whites. There’s only one thing that’s gonna save this country from itself – the same thing that always saves this country from itself. And that […]

George Carlin’s Birthday

George Carlin was born on this day in 1937. He is sorely missed. Carlin on religion: Because folks, I gotta tell ya, when it comes to bullshit, truly major-league bullshit, you have to stand back in awe — in awe of the all time heavyweight champion of false promises and exaggerated claims — religion — […]

Doug Stanhope on farts

Jeff Brown and I used to eat at The Sahara Dinner Buffet where I had, to this day, the best spectacle of bowel-wrenching flatulence of my life. The room was full of mostly elderly people, tables tightly packed, and we were seated dead center. It was silent except for the slight tinkling of silverware on […]

How I Met Your Mother is Scrubs

I’ve been watching “How I Met Your Mother” on Netflix streaming, and I really like the show. I’ve been having the feeling that the show was very familiar, even though I never watched it when it was on television (every episode is new to me).
