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.

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.

Didja Know?

This has been a strange week for me. Every time something seemed to be headed in the right direction it would blow up. In one instance, literally. Fortunately no one was injured but it does sum things up nicely. In the case of the last event a gentleman was trying to prove that gasoline couldn’t burn if struck with a lit match. This is, in fact, true. However, like all facts gleaned exclusively from the internet, some context is due. While liquid gasoline requires a much higher temperature to burn,…
