The Danger of Bumper Sticker Mentality

Apparently, I must have missed the memo that said that I must publically hate someone or something to fully actualize my human experience. I’m not apathetic, at least not in the usual application of the word. I do care about stuff–in my own private way. Private, in that I don’t feel the need to plaster […]

NSFW

NSFW You’re minding your own business during another mind-numbing day in the cubicle farm when another e-mail, in the endless stream of e-mails pops into your in-box. The little banner appears on your screen and before you can swat it away like another digital fly, you see it – NSFW. Not Safe For Work… The forbidden […]

Kanye Had A Bad Week

Kanye West had a bad week. No matter what else happens, I’ve had a better week than Kanye. I’m powering through a head cold, which I know is probably Zika Virus. I had Mexican food this week, and Mexico is close to the Caribbean where the Zika Virus lives – so, I must have Zika. […]

The Social Media Wasteland

The social media landscape has shown the first evidence of the phenomenon called Digital Global Meltdown. *cue tumbleweeds* This meltdown, is all manmade and there is no questionable science for deniers to hide behind. We are responsible for this mess and the toxic waste left behind in cyberspace. Social media has become a vast wasteland of […]

A Message from the Great Beyond

I’m not a guy who sees supernatural forces lurking in all the dark shadows. There’s enough real bad stuff out there without leaving it to my twisted little mind. But… Do ghosts exist? I mean is there something out there trying to establish contact with us on this side of the great dirt nap? All […]

The Spam Game – What does your spam say about you?

I’m overwhelmed with spam. These unsolicited messages are a waste product of all of our new fangled technology and electronic lifestyle. Spam defies a concise definition. It’s like porn — you know it when you see it. If I were a sensitive little buttercup and overthought the subject line of each spam e-mail in my in-box, I […]

Prison and Politics – Part I

Prison and politics makes for strange bedfellows. I know what you’re thinking, more politicians should be in prison. I will not disagree with that notion, especially as we head into the election season. Pick your poison here, lying, backstabbing, socialist, fascist, egomaniac, there are politicians of every stripe to choose from. While I have my […]

You Want Me To Pin What?

Old Guys and Social Media are like sauerkraut and vanilla wafers. An unholy pairing at best and the thought of the two, together, is enough to give you the willies. Let me back up a moment. People of a certain age (there now, that’s a bit softer than slapping the geezer label on my forehead) […]

Forgive Me Twitter, For I Have Sinned

Bless me Twitter for I have sinned. *Pulls curtain closed* It has been years since my last confession… I have used the bluebird’s name in vein, I have unfollowed people, coveted another’s tweet and retweeted a post from my timeline without reading it. There, I said it. I am a social media sinner. Let me back […]

Who’s Living Under Your Bridge?

Bridges and those who dwell under them. Bridges are strange little things, when you stop and take a moment to consider them. Bridges force you to take a narrow path, over some (usually man-made) inconvienence to get to that special place you need to go. The route is direct, quick and utterly devoid of character […]
