Penis Envy Anyone?

Life is full of wonderful mysteries, things that can cause awe and terror – often simultaneously. Some people stare at the night sky and imagine what could be contained there. Others scan the mighty oceans and try to fathom how those alien creatures of the deep could be related to us. Still others delve into the mysteries of the mind and attempt to unlock the demons that plague us so that we can finally put the irrational behind us. All of these people attempt to ascertain worthy goals. As such…

Making Love Louder

Yesterday the World News Center’s official girlfriend and I joined the Center for Inclusivity as part of a group to allow parade participants to pass by a group of protesters without having to hear their hateful speech. And, dear God, was it hateful. This was our second year doing this and it seems to be becoming more important than ever for those of us not directly impacted by their hate to stand up, stand firm, and denounce it. For the record, it worked. Denied the ability to call marchers fags…

Stop With All Your Ish … tar

I know that people get so excited when something seems to agree with their narrow view that they neglect to check the facts. It’s why, and how, the Tea Party thrives. That being said, atheists and rationalists are allegedly the people who live on facts and facts alone. I used to count myself among their number until I realized that if I was the most evolved creature in the universe then the universe was fucked. Therefore, while I subscribe to no particular religion, I do believe in God. I also…

Welcome to the Human Zoo

Greetings human. I’ll assume you’re human, at least for now. I’m sure that once the world’s data is absorbed by the veritable Omnius that this little sliver of organic thought will be duly noted, cataloged and forgotten. Maybe one of our cybernetic progeny will chuckle and say “Hey, guys, look here. This dude wrote about great grandpa.” But that will be about it. After all, what interest will we be to them? Other than some historical reference point. Maybe a softly spoken prayer “Yeah, there but for the sake of…

We Still Need to Talk

This post appeared on January 12, 2013, a month after Sandy Hook happened. I would later find out that a very good friend lost a niece that day. The pictures from her funeral, her family had a private wake with an open casket, were horrifying and sad. The Friday after this came out I did my regular radio show and this was the topic. It was still the topic everywhere as both sides tried to spin this tragedy into their own personal and political gain. I mentioned then that I…

Gotch Your Geek-a-Goin’?

Comic-Con just concluded yesterday and, by all accounts, it was the OMG Totes Bessevah! I Googled that. It’s pretty positive. So everyone had a good time and huge billion dollar companies got to act like kids for a few days. No harm no foul as far as I’m concerned. But this year saw the hype taken to levels not seen since John, Paul, George and Ringo posed for Playgirl. And the reason for that is the convergence of the DC universe finally hitting its cinematic stride just as the Marvel…

Thou Shalt Love Thyself

I get it. Sometimes you’ve got some “me time” and you want to make it worth your while. So, a little soft music, a nice dinner for one, maybe a rose (For me? You shouldn’t have!), a couple of adult libations, some jiffy lube and off you go for an evening of one handed romance. You let your imagination run wild. Your brain, the most erotic organ you have in any case, starts firing. Finally, after however long it takes you, your synapses collapse into a heap of protoplasmic ecstasy.…

Happy VD Ya’ll (redux)

I wrote the below column two years ago tomorrow. Since nothing lasts on the Internet I have been asked to repost it. And I’m happy to oblige. Each year Valentine’s Day brings its own unique set of challenges. Especially to us single dudes. You don’t want to do too much for fear of coming off like a stalker but you don’t want to do to little for fear of appearing disinterested. And it’s not just guys. If my email is to be believed women are just as insecure as men.…
