Things you are not allowed to call me
Please do not call me “Buddy”. Without getting into a whole “I’m not you buddy, guy” thing, just don’t do it. There’s only one person on the entire planet who is allowed to call me his buddy, and that’s my son. Likewise, he’s the only person that I will call buddy. Also, don’t call me “son”. If you’re using...
So, about an hour ago, my daughter was screaming in her bedroom. She’s 3, so this isn’t normal. And she’d been screaming all night, which is pretty frustrating for everyone involved. So, I ask her what she wants, and in a moment of defiant opposition, she screams “NOTHING!” The fuck am I supposed to do with that? I’m exhausted as all hell, frustrated by the...
Not an important post by any means, but trying to see if a few account tweaks I made between here and my Facebook will make things a little more secure.

Ok….reblogging someone else who reblogged me is a little awkward (to say the least). And yet, here I am, doing just that. All in defense of a blog post proclaiming a couple of covers better than the originals. Namely: Why do I prefer Roger Taylor’s “Racing In The Street” over Bruce Springsteen’s original? Because, if I’m being perfectly honest,...
5 Covers Better Than The Originals
Covers are, of course, reinterpretations of songs. Sometimes they’re good, sometimes their not. Sometimes, they call attention to songs otherwise neglected. These are five covers that are better than the originals. Judge for yourself. 1. Blinded By The Light (Original by Bruce Springsteen, covered by Manfred Mann’s Earth Band) Someone once said that the difference between liking...
10 Shows I'm Currently Obsessing Over
As I’ve written in the past, my wife and I are cord-cutters, and proud of it. I honestly can’t imagine that we would have survived cutting the cord even just 2 or 3 years ago (especially considering every time we’d try to dump cable, we’d immediately put up an antenna, and then start complaining about the lack of a DVR), but there’s so much good stuff available now...
