On January 10, 2016 pop star David Bowie passed away due to cancer. This was a sad event. It was a sad event because a human being ceased to live. He was very obviously loved by his family, his wife Iman and his son Duncan Jones, to name but a few. He had just released an album last week and by all measures was back. Back, if not at the very top, certainly near the top of his game; top of the pop world and whatever that entails. David Bowie…read more
So this is the New Year and I don’t feel any different. With apologies to Death Cab For Cutie, stealing a part of their song is a very lazy way to start off the new year. Ah, well it is the new year and I really don’t feel any different. Everyone seemingly starts off every new year by saying “This year is gonna be different goddamnit! I’m gonna do all the stuff. All of it!”. It is, generally, bullshit. That’s why the gyms are full of fat people on the…read more
I love fall. It is perhaps my favorite time of the year. I so like walking hand in hand with my loved one through the forest where the leaves weave a carpet of red and orange and brown. We ever so gently tiptoe on the fallen pathway so clearly lit by the late evening sun and ponder life and where we’re going and where we’ve been. It’s glorious and makes me love life. And then we go for beer and get drunk and probably in a fight and bring up…read more
I’m no stranger to Apple products. We’ve had iMacs when they were fancy colors and a Mac before that. I forget what that one was even called, ProPc? We all have iPads and we’ve had iPhones since you could have an iPhone. Anyway…I’ve been lusting after a Mac for years and years but had to buy pc’s because the software where I worked was for pc and no one else there had Macs so when we had to license the software, of course it was for pc. I ended the…read more
So we have a literal buttload of cats. Four of them to be exact. That’s my definition of a buttload, your definition might vary. They’re getting old. Our oldest is 18 and our youngest is 14. They should all die soon. Like tomorrow? The next day? That would be fine with me. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate our cats. I hate that they’re getting old, sick all over the house all the time, keep us up at night wanting to eat about 9 times a day, wrestling…read more
Suprise, right? I mean who in the world wouldn’t want to get a cold? Who wouldn’t want the sniffly nose, the breathing issues like a fat opera singer is sitting on your chest belting out an aria from some obscure 18th century German opera? Well, me for one. I wouldn’t want that. However one can’t always choose, right? Since my recent kidney transplant I find that I have super powers and glow in the dark. Not really, I don’t have any super powers. As to the glowing in the dark…read more
I guess it’s the future. Or maybe just back to…where? The past? The future past? Some time that can’t be defined easily within the English (or really any other ) language? Let’s just say back from the dead. Back to regular content, regular updates, regular movements…sorry I started talking about the bathroom there. No one really wants to hear of my bathroom habits. So….here we go. Let’s see what happens, eh?
