This is the most hated song in the whole wide world (and you know I’m right!)

In our lives, there are songs that, if I’m being generous, are just plain awful. The composition. The melody. The lyrics. All of the above. These are the songs that you can’t get away from. These are songs that can be used as torture devices. Which brings me to the subject of today’s blog post.…

It’s a camera shutter. It’s not a detonator.

Last week, an American Airlines flight from Indianapolis to New York was forced to make an emergency landing due to what had initially been described as an in-flight passenger situation. Uh-oh. Well, it turns out that the “in-flight passenger situation,” according to the New York Daily News, was because a passenger saw another passenger adjusting…

Treat your ride share drivers with respect.

From time to time, I’ll rely on Uber to get me from Point A to Point B. They helped me tremendously when I couldn’t drive due to my various eye and foot surgeries, and they helped me when I needed to get to places where parking wasn’t always guaranteed (i.e., during a snowstorm). That being…

Waiting for the train is driving me off the rails.

I keep refreshing every browser link that might have a clue as to the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train’s 2021 schedule – is it running, will there be two trains, will it be a single concert in Calgary like last year due to COVID … but no news, no puff of smoke (shall we say) from…

Psalms 3:16 and the Mandela Effect

Back in 2014, I wrote a blog post about how a baseball player had autographed a baseball with the phrase “Psalms 3:16,” when he really meant to say “John 3:16.” Here’s a link to that original post. But here’s the strange thing. I wrote that post seven years ago, and in the past few days,…

Could you please help Pet Alliance?

This is important. Whatever you can offer to help will be tremendously appreciated. Like most animal shelters and humane societies, Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando opens up its heart and its facilities to rescue abandoned and hoarded animals, and to hopefully find them new forever homes. Last Wednesday evening, however, tragedy struck the Pet Alliance.…

Hey, Kellyanne Conway … you about to lose your job, hee hee hee…

In the final days of the Trump Administration, the former guy installed many of his loyalists onto various boards and positions, allowing them to continue their Trumpian loyalty. One of those loyalists was Kellyanne Conway, who was appointed to the Board of Visitors for the Air Force Academy. Yesterday, President Biden announced that 18 Trump…

Albany goes nuts for another chain store. Man, we’re so deprived.

You would think that the Capital District was some sort of backwoods hick region, the way the populace gets so excited about the arrival of a chain store in the area. A few years ago, someone installed a Trader Joe’s on Wolf Road and people lost their shit. Then after that, we got a Sonic…

What can you do in 4,383 days?

Hmm. In 4,383 days, you could… Own a vintage 1991 Pontiac 6000, watch the car die, replace it with a 2005 Saturn Ion, watch that car have electrical spasms, replace it with a 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt SS, drive it until the car gets destroyed on a North Carolina highway, and then continue on with a…

“Why didn’t my blog comment get approved, you woke libtard?”

Between 2009 and 2017, I blogged for the Albany Times Union. They had a very strict policy with regard to blog comments and blog commenters. All blog comments had to be approved, whether we agreed with the comments or didn’t agree with the comments. The only times blog comments could be rejected was if they…
