Chipping away at this week’s agonizing gig…

You never know when these paranoid creeps will snap, but you know they will – and in the middle of a crowded tourist venue. It’s fairly certain that if you and I behaved like this we’d be in a prison … Continue reading

I’d just like to add my voice to the chorus and opine that the new Star Wars flick is a delightfully dumb movie. I know one doesn’t look for logic or consistency from SW, but at times this one plays … Continue reading

There’s a phrase for people like this.

Oh, dear. I’ve got a new paying gig. And as happens so often when I get involved in things like this, I’m wondering if I bit off (Cliché filter). Remember those fine folks I mentioned before, who moved away and … Continue reading
