I just can not wait any longer for the Google Glass to appear. I already have the money ready. Continue reading

I’m thinking of trademarking the word “McDubya.” Whaddya think? Earlier this week, President Bush officially endorsed Senator John McCain for president. Well, duh. Talk about a no-brainer (pun intended). That’s because the stench that emanates from Washington during what could soon be the McCain administration will smell an awful lot... Continue reading

No one that knows me will ever accuse me of being a fan of USC (Southern Cal) sports teams or a sympathizer of their athletic program. They have pretty much every advantage you'd want: a rabid fan base, a mega-successful football team that makes beacoup bucks and an ideally located... Continue reading

Freaky news going on in the world, actually right here in California. Salinas, to be exact. That’s in central California, for the geographically impaired. A couple was arrested a coupla months ago for trying to sell their 6-month-old baby to people in the parking lot of the local Walmart. Coupla... Continue reading

The Black Crowes continue to rock on 20 years later. I simply cannot get enough of their latest, a 2-CD set individually titled Before the Frost… and its downloaded companion disc …Until the Freeze. They recorded the tunes in unusual fashion: in a very rustic setting in upstate New York... Continue reading

I don’t recall the last time I got this much bang for my concert buck. We had the distinct pleasure of seeing the Zac Brown Band – and friends – at LA’s Gibson Amphitheater recently. Let me just put this out there: them boys can play. And play they do... Continue reading

We are finally witnessing the field of Democratic candidates starting to shake out nicely. As a Democrat myself, I am happy to see Sen. John Kerry moving to the front of the pack, mainly because he is the most electable of the bunch. Electability is key because W and his... Continue reading

Your friendly aspiring writer has good news. I have been selected as a finalist for two scriptwriting contests. What does it mean? Being a finalist means those doing the judging have placed me in the top ten percent of the entries. Quite honestly, I’m a bit surprised, but elated, too.... Continue reading

A NEW DEFINITION OF COMPETENT LEADERSHIP Gee, I guess those 1998 Oval Office blowjobs weren’t such a big thing, after all, huh? We had eight years of peace and prosperity under Bill Clinton, but the Republican voters amongst us chose to focus on what had happened to Li’l Bill when... Continue reading

Had the distinct privilege this weekend of seeing some of the top jazz musicians in the world. And that's not an exaggeration. My beautiful loving wife got us tickets to see jazz trumpeter extraordinaire Chris Botti and his equally extraordinary band in Thousand Oaks. In a small venue (1800+ seats).... Continue reading

Beyonce. A DirecTV ad. Seriously. You sold a bazillion records with your girl group. Another bazillion as a solo artist. You've been in a few high-profile movies. And you're married to another incredibly wealthy and successful person. I don't even have to type his name. We all know him. Yo.... Continue reading

The Major League Baseball Players Association apparently has a lot of free time at their disposal these days. Or maybe they’ve been taking batting practice from Roger Clemens without wearing a helmet. They’ve announced that they will be investigating why free agent Barry Bonds has not yet been signed to...

Message for Tina Turner: The NASA lawyers called and are threatening litigation if you ever wear anything silver and reflective again. You’re 69, dear. Even Psycho Britney would’ve passed on that outfit. When yer nipples continuously point due south, it’s time for a bra. Maybe even a shoulder-mounted construction crane.... Continue reading

Saw a shocking headline on ESPN.com late last week: “Limbaugh Blames Others for Rams Bid Ouster.” So I though to myself… “hey, that wouldn’t be Rush Limbaugh, would it?” Naw… can’t be. The humble, open-minded, always objective and utterly professional radio host? The one who thoroughly examines himself and his... Continue reading

[This was written yesterday, May 27th.] Just missed the Obama motorcade. He's in LA for a fundraiser in Beverly Hills, not too far from where I work. Got on the elevator at work during lunch and saw 2 friends. They said the president was about to drive by and they... Continue reading

10. 401K statements look suspiciously like lottery tickets. 9. Instead of "Casual Fridays," mail room guys insist on "Clothing-Optional Fridays." 8. Daycare facilities provided by Neverland Ranch Child Services. 7. Steady flow of co-workers leaving to take jobs at local suppository testing lab. 6. Office holiday party entertainment: Vanilla Ice.... Continue reading

Dear Current TV, I just love the way you guys post your jobs online, but deliberately leave out the location. That's soooooooo clever. Really. It's cute. Kind of a 21st century thing, huh? Someone's thinking 'outside the box' again, aren't they? Wow. I bet they'll get promoted soon. Hey, I... Continue reading

Despite being a long-time fan and the owner of the vast majority of the Bruce Hornsby catalog in CD and, more recently, DVD (bring on "Three Nights!"), the Anaheim House of Blues show was my first. Same for my dear sweetheart Sunny who went with me; she’s also a BH... Continue reading

"Oh, fuck. Did you just say Mike Wallace is here?" "My dentist told me he'd donate 5-large to my legal defense fund if I let him use this shot for his Yellow Pages ad." "Here's a li'l somethin-somethin all you Young Republicans can jerk off to." "You'd be smiling, too,... Continue reading

Well, another week, another intense hurricane. (Yes, Virginia, there is a greenhouse effect.) And with another killer storm comes another inevitable barrage of idiots masquerading on TV as reporters. We know they're fake because legitimate ones know to come in from the rain. Altogether now: "Hurricanes… bad." We get it.... Continue reading

Spanky pled guilty today to prisoner abuse in a wide-ranging scandal involving pictures taken with other bloated helpless former child stars taken hostage by the cast of “The Little Rascals.” In photos that were widely circulated on the Internet and subsequently in the media, Spanky posed with a dangling cigarette...

Despite the previous two prequels having gone into the crapper quality-wise, the new Star Wars movie (“Revenge of the Phantom Lucas”) grossed $158 million in its opening weekend. That translates into roughly 15.8 million paid admissions. (The guy who won the Yoda lookalike booger contest at the radio station in... Continue reading

Are we stopping any of these goddam car bombs in Iraq? Dozens of people, sometimes hundreds, are killed weekly by these things, yet we never hear about any bombings that are thwarted. Must be that dad gum liberal media bias. Fuckstick al Zarqawi is eating our lunch. He and al... Continue reading

Here is a tribute to my former roommate, Jason Rohrblogger, he of the one and only Jason Rohrblogger's Top Ten blog. Thanks for an awesome (almost) four years, my bruh-thah. You made it possible for me to come to California and you encouraged my creative side; it has worked out... Continue reading

Lost my dad a few weeks back. As we all know, the passing of a parent is not a fun time. Emotional issues aside (easier said than done), for those of us that don’t live in the same area, we are also faced with a huge travel challenge that has... Continue reading
