Happy Nude Year

Once again another year has come to a close. And, just like the rest, it featured joy and sadness, birth and death. For some people the end of the year holidays are a maudlin time where they dwell on opportunities missed, and loved ones lost. Others take the time to wipe the slate clean and plan for a better future. Whichever path you choose I would like to advise you to tread lightly. The past is gone and can not be changed. Gnashing your teeth over what might have been…

Christmas Films You Need to See

Back in 2012 I wrote a fun little blog about Holiday films everyone needed to see. Most people will point you to the classics like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, a fun story which reminds children that they’re all useless and will be shunned until they provide a service to their overlords, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, which seems like a pedophile’s wet dream today but was actually very sweet when it was first released (and is still a personal fave of mine since I’m not a pervert –…

Happy Ho Hos Upon Ya!

Since, this year, Christmas Eve falls on a Friday that means, if I want to do our annual Christmas radio show I need to do it today. Which is fine. Christmas is a fun, and interesting, holiday. Steeped in traditions that have nothing to do with its alleged origins it has become a global holiday that brings out the strangest in people. I’ve done my fair share of articles on the day, covering everything from the joys of Christmas poop to how Colonel Sanders is the image used for Santa…

Dropping Some Knowledge

I’m a big fan of the Internet. I use it every day for checking up on sports talk, looking up facts, conversing with friends, and all sorts of fun stuff. Essentially, to me, the Internet is a great public library. Something that rivals the legendary Library of Alexandria. But, unlike a traditional library, the Internet allows anyone to share their thoughts, hopes, dreams, and aspirations. That can be a good thing. Or it can be a nightmare. I’ve written before about various and sundry hoaxes that permeate the online ether.…

A Matter of Perspective

The story I’m about to tell is only tangentially related to the rest of the blog, but it’s worth sharing given the atmosphere of hate that’s permeated the American media as of late. Almost every Friday I do a radio show on WBIG called The Big Wake Up Call. You can use the first link to stream live and the second to listen to recordings in case you miss it. Anyway, I got a call today from a nice man. He’d emailed me and asked if we could talk. He…

Stuff That Makes You Go Hmm

People always ask me why I tend to favor pictures of sexy women on my blogs. The answer is easy, I like sexy women. If you like pictures of sexy men I suggest you go visit my buddy David Onassis. His pages are festooned with them. He’s also a nice guy and it won’t kill you to meet a nice person once in a while. Anyway, sexiness aside, there’s been a lot happening in the wonderful world of science and I thought today might be a good day to fill…

Squanto Was a Dick & Other Holiday Faves

Everyone has their holiday traditions. Eating black eyed peas for New Year’s. Going to a Sadie Hawkins’ dance for Valentine’s Day. Getting hammered to honor an aesthetic patron saint. Wallowing in pagan fertility rituals to commemorate the resurrection of Christ. Using high explosives to celebrate our peaceful freedoms. Dressing up as sex starved maniacs who just escaped from a cave to revere our dead ancestors and, of course, memorializing the birth of a man dedicated to poverty and peace by spending spending fucking obscene amounts of money and fighting like…

Your 2016 Mapped Out

One of the fun parts about doing The Big Wake Up Call every Friday, at 9:10 AM (CT/US), is interacting with the listeners. They call, they write, they send smoke signals. Whatever they can think of to get my attention. I even had one young lady figure out which bar I frequented and show up there. I’m sure I won’t need a restraining order. But there is one thing we do on the show that I kind of gloss over here. And that is stuff about superhero movies. It’s not…

Playing the Race & Religion Game

Recently Donald Trump’s Twitter account busted out the most racist, and factually inaccurate, graphic anyone (who’s not a member of the KKK) had ever seen. It showed that 8 out of 10 whites who were murdered were murdered by black people. Common sense tells you that’s bullshit, but common sense has very little to do with what Trump is selling. He, and the rest of the Republican Presidential candidates, except for John Kasich who doesn’t stand a blowjob’s chance in a nunnery of winning, are all about pandering to people’s…

Friday the 13th

Superstitions are silly things. Some are mere mnemonic devices that have taken on a life of their own. Don’t walk under a ladder is a good example. From a purely practical standpoint someone might drop something on your head. The same applies to opening an umbrella indoors. If you do that you suddenly have lots of sharp objects, the ribs and the tip, in an enclosed space where you could, literally, put someone’s eye out. 666 is supposed to be the number of the beast in Revelations. People believe this…
