Do not eat Tide Soap Pods. It’s stupid.

Do not eat Tide Soap Pods. It’s stupid.

Normally, I try not being an a**hole (unless justified of course.) And I would not usually castigate a person for (calmly and respectfully) expressing his or hers views. So, if you castigate a person for (calmly and respectfully) expressing his or hers views on a subject, situation, or circumstance, you could very well be an…Continue Reading

A new year and a new start

Positive vibes for the new year

“What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality” – Plutarch  I agree, and I also think that to better to know oneself is to better know our world. Look at oneself from the outside in, and maybe we’ll better understand our world. As we embark on this new year, I want to share this with you: my thoughts…Continue Reading

Elections in the US

Post Election Observations

My post election observation and thoughts (after hearing “the word on the street” AND reading social media posts): In my opinion, MOST politicians are not really “working for the people” as they claim, nor care to. They don’t really care about YOU. Only your money and curbside appeal. Remember that. They’re working to line their…Continue Reading

Father’s Day and libraries

What is Fathers Day Anyway

What is Father’s Day anyway? Just another day (to me.) OK. I’ll be honest and open and wish a very Happy Father’s Day to MY most loyal, devoted, always-there (except Sundays because he was closed) “father.”  My father was a brick & mortar kinda guy…a dad who opened up the world and broadened my emotional…Continue Reading

Dog Day in Central Park

Duley and his Dog

Dogs make the world a better place. Dogs are super beings (in most cases) save for the yappy ones owned by Dowagers on Park Ave (who provide more comfortable beds for their pedigree pooches than most of us can ever hope to own.)   For the most part, dogs make many people smile. And dogs…Continue Reading

Blog Snippets

Politics as usual. It’s getting sickening.

Politics as usual. It’s getting sickening.

Well, whether Republican OR Democrat, it seems abundantly clear that BullS**T is even more ubiquitous in any and all politics – and spewed from every orifice of any and all mainstream politicians. It matters not which party is in control…Chaos will be King, and the masses will huddle around their mobile devices to see memes…Continue Reading

Essay on the Anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 Attacks

Essay on the Anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 Attacks

It’d be nice if most people of today’s America (and the world) could put aside partisan politics which give credence to clowns and buffoons on the dais of pop culture – masquerading as politics. Instead, We The People should reflect on past events, so we don’t make the same mistakes over and over again. Every…Continue Reading

Only in New York: Bratty Kids on ice cream jags

Only in New York: Bratty Kids on ice cream jags

Sometimes while grocery shopping in NYC, it’s difficult to negotiate the narrow aisles. And sometimes it’s even more difficult not to yell “you wretched little imp” to a ten year old kid who swings open a freezer door in the frozen foods section and hits you squarely in the head as your’re reaching for the…Continue Reading

Happy birthday MTV

Happy birthday MTV

Happy birthday to an iconic international cable TV channel! Back when MTV aka Music Television was actually Music Television (and actually showed music videos on television) first hit the airwaves, times were different in the world of media, politics, and sports (but fast-changing, and not necessarily for the better in many cases.) Today, people can “buy followers”…Continue Reading

Musical Moods or Melancholy: chill out and listen

Musical Moods or Melancholy: chill out and listen

Man oh man, the world seems in dire need of a high colonic/coffee enema! A.S.A.P. Yes, life has its ups….and yes, life has its downs. (Let’s face it, staying steady is boring most of the time, right?)  You just need to hold on tight, grab the bull by the balls, and do the best ya…Continue Reading

Confucius Sexy Scrolls at The Guggenheim Museum

Confucius Sexy Scrolls at The Guggenheim Museum

It’s the little things in life that bring forth great joy on a humid Friday in June. Before work this morning, the dog and I were chillin’ in Central Park in the shadow of the Guggenheim Museum; sipping our iced coffee (sans cannoli) when we were approached by a surly young couple from Manitoba, Canada…Continue Reading

Only in New York – Drunk man drops trou near diner

Only in New York – Drunk man drops trou near diner

Only in NYC: On the way home from the gig this evening, passing by Andrew’s Coffee Shop on 35th and 7th, I (along with dozens of other folks) witnessed a drunken dude standing by the huge window of said diner yelling at a “No Parking” sign. He suddenly stopped yelling, adjusted his tie, turned on…Continue Reading

Looting our city’s Libraries by not funding them (where it’s needed.)

  Hear, hear, Mr. Churchill! …He was very wise and knew the importance of maintaining the Arts. Today (especially in NYC) when the majority of politicians open their mouths to blow smoke up our proverbial asses about preserving the arts, funding libraries, increasing monies for education, or maintaining music and sports programs in schools for…Continue Reading

Strange Bedfellows and streetwalkers in New York

Dog walks and road rage

“If we weren’t all crazy, we’d just be insane” to paraphrase Jimmy Buffett. For instance: On our morning stroll toward Central Park, before heading to today’s gig, we happened upon a rather odd exchange – an exchange  of which the dog and I were involuntary involved (by virtue of laughing our asses off at the escapades which ensued.)…Continue Reading
