Who Taught You To Live Like That?

Sloan is fast becoming one of my favorite bands of all time. It seems no matter what, when, where and how they do it, they do it right and they leave a trail of ass-kicked fans gushing over their live show, which is second-to-none. Their last record took some time to grow on me and [...]

A Few of My Favorite Things

Here’s what’s awesome:

Is There A Ghost In My House?

You always hear about projectile vomiting with children, but until you actually see it, no words really do it justice. One of the, um, joys of having twins is that if one is sick, it is a damn good bet that the other one will be shortly thereafter. This theory was deployed flawlessly here in [...]

Bullets & Stock Tips

Lots of people told me things like “make sure you wear a bullet-proof vest” and “don’t get shot.” Never very clever, really, but still, I have to agree it’s a [...]

My Big Male Aggregate!

About once per week I like to go to the email junk/spam folder because once in a while a “real” email manages to get filed as spam. I recommend you do this occasionally. One of the side benefits of doing such a thing is that you get to see some rather funny email subject lines. [...]
