Trip Through Our Murky World

  • Tiger Woods. What a complete, total dumbass. Some people who have everything just can’t be satisfied with everything, can they? They just have to have MORE. Dumbass.
  • Walmart. Here in Massachusetts, they just got handed a $40 million ass whooping for “denying breaks, refusing overtime, and manipulating time cards.” I can tell you this: I’ve never shopped there. Ever. And I don’t intend to if I don’t have to. Oh wait – there was one time I forgot a dress shirt on a trip to North Carolina so I got one there. But that’s it. Or was that Costco? I don’t remember. Either way – evil.
  • Are you telling me that they actually have performances at the Grammy Nomination Announcements now? WTF? Come again? Am I totally sounding like the 76 year old bitter old man? I am shaking my fist over here, yelling “cripes!”
  • OK, this sounds interesting. I keep wondering and wavering about ownership vs. streaming. I always thought I’d be an ownership guy because I’ve always loved owning my music, but I think I’m coming around.  I’m in the middle of trying to figure out the next steps for our house and music/audio, so this throws a wrench into things. It’s always friggin’ something.
  • You have to watch this. Hockey player from the Florida Panthers got frustrated when his team gave up a goal and he tried to break his stick on the net……but OOPS! Instead he broke his stick over his own goaltender’s head. OOPS. Um, sorry dude.
  • I able to catch the Tom Petty feature on CBS This Morning the other day. I’m so-so on Tom Petty. I love some of his stuff and some other stuff I can’t bear to listen to. But the feature was quite good. My favorite part? When he was asked about turning 60, Petty sheepishly says “well, if you’re not getting old, then you’re dead.” Love it.
