THERE’S SOMETHING IN A SUNDAY

Posted on February 18, 2019

He’s one of our greatest American poets. Ever since he was introduced to the world by his mentor, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson has been tapping into hearts and souls with his own unique brand of gut-wrenching truths. With that distinct slow, deep, drawl singing simple lyrics around simple melodies, he was able to speak to […]


THE ORIGINAL CLASSIC MAN

Posted on February 15, 2019

I know the place well where the man came to play All dressed in red his intentions to stay I watched as his ships came to the shore Then I sharpened my spear and prepared for a war He came at us hard showing off his skills But he underestimated our hearts and our wills […]


CAN WE PLEASE STOP WITH ALL THE TALENT CONTEST SHOWS?

Posted on February 14, 2019

I’m sick of seeing Simon Cowell’s mug! And I bet he’s probably sick of seeing his own face.  I take that back. He’s a narcissist and surely loves him some him!  And I’m sure he also loves knowing that his original creation has spawned a plethora of vomit inducing, very-hard-to-watch copycats that absolutely dominate prime-time […]


I GET BY WITH A LOT OF HELP FROM MY FRIENDS!

Posted on February 13, 2019

I can say with a confident level of certitude that I wouldn’t be writing this post, or any other, were it not for a certain handful of men in my life.  As a matter of fact, I’d probably be fully decomposed by now and there’d be a lot of worms with full bellies, we’re it […]


ARE YOU THINKING BAD THOUGHTS?…YOU’RE UNDER ARREST!

Posted on February 12, 2019

As nutty (and dystopian) as this title reads-it’s not so far-fetched. Every day we’re seeing more and more blatant examples of someone being vilified and dragged through the mud for something he did, said-or even wore.  A past tweet deemed inflammatory. A misguided joke perceived as sexist or racist. A slogan on a hat interpreted […]


WHY AREN’T THERE ANY MORE STEVE MCQUEENS IN HOLLYWOOD?

Posted on February 11, 2019

He was the king of cool!   Epitomizing that rare fusion of rugged bad-ass(ness) with impeccable style and class.  During an era when there was certainly no shortage of silver screen tough guys (Eastwood, Bronson) and matinee idol pretty boys (Newman, Beatty), McQueen reigned supreme with his ease at being both-on screen and off.  His […]


ONE FEELING AT A TIME!

Posted on February 8, 2019

This is how I envision it. Seven to ten tiny men, each dressed according to his corresponding emotion or proclivity.  Love is dressed in a nice, cashmere sweater and a pair of perfectly pressed khakis. Deep Thinker has messy hair and his wired rimmed spectacles are just a little too big for his narrow face […]


HEY, SKIPPY…YOU’RE NOT THE SPAWN OF DAN RATHER

Posted on February 7, 2019

Suddenly, he’s a beat reporter.  A correspondent in the field. A documentarian of all the daily goings on in his mundane life.  Ten years ago, before Skippy got his first smart phone, he wasn’t. But today, and every other day since then…he is. While he’s shopping one evening, an aggressive, pissed off, customer in the […]
