Time to party like it’s 1974

That's been my big contribution to my upcoming 50th High School Reunion. Okay, that and a few videos, a little copy, a David Bowie remix and some social media posting. What can I say? I'm a giver. Hey, you do what you can and... honestly, it means I get to hang all...

Do You Have What It Takes To Hunt A Killer?

Do You Have What It Takes To Hunt A Killer?

Have you taken the Fate Still Rests Online Experience? Seriously? I'm not saying I spent a lot of time putting this together just for you, or that it's super fun and scary, and perhaps life-changing in a positive way, or that you should feel any guilt whatsoever for...

Is there Daylight Savings Time when you’re a Digital Nomad?

Is there Daylight Savings Time when you’re a Digital Nomad?

Asking for a friend. Daylight Savings Time is dumb. Let it be light longer in the evening. It's what everyone wants, and all the stories I've read about why we even have DST...  are dumb. I know, I know... there are five or six of you out there that get up early and...

I saw a robot deliver groceries today

Now, you know that has to be true, cuz if I wanted to sensationalize it with a clickbait worthy headline I would have written, "Evil robot wreaks havoc in Hollywood Hills" or "Killer robot snarls LA traffic while destroying iconic Capitol Records Building." Something...

How can I miss you if you won’t go away?

How can I miss you if you won’t go away?

How can I miss you if you won't go away? Yep, after a week or so of sitting in front of the computer in the same sweatpants, this is how Victoria lets me know that it's time for me to go outside and air out a bit, or at least find a fresh pair of sweatpants and vacuum...

I think The Rockettes are aliens

I think The Rockettes are aliens

We went to the big Christmas show at Radio City Music Hall last week. Victoria had never been and I was pretty sure it was probably a little different from when I saw it in 1964 with my Mom and sister. Now, The Rockettes being aliens, would make an awesome Christmas...

I say it’s my birthday

I say it’s my birthday

I do say it's my birthday. And it is. Today is my actual birthday. Well the actual birthday was 68 years ago, but who the hell can even count that high, let alone remember the fireworks display and three days of drunken partying that took place in Lexington, Kentucky?...

Neither here nor there

Neither here nor there

It's that time of year. Yep, it's officially "Neither Here Nor There." That time of year when it's just sad if you still have your Halloween decorations up, and those Thanksgiving leftovers are getting dangerously old, and... it's just way too early to open your...

Afeitarse y cortarse el pelo “dos bits”💈

So, it's way too freaking cold today, and I'm dragging our beat up little cart behind me on my way to Trader Joe's. Yep, show business is glamorous. I crossed Third at 53rd Street and about 50 steps in, I stopped. Not because someone was admiring my new pork pie hat...

What Does Happily Ever After Look Like?

Well, aren't we being "Mr. I'm-So-Deep-And-Philosophical" this week, you say? And even if you didn't say it, just go with me cuz otherwise I got nothing to write about this week. I saw "What Does Happily Ever After Look Like?" on a bus, or in the men's room at The...

I know. You got up extra early this morning. Made your bed. Had a hearty breakfast and, so as not to burn yourself again, carefully carried your second cup of steaming hot coffee to your computer and... waited. It was only 6:30am EDT after all, and although you knew...

A tour of the best pubs in Cardiff

FDUK. Cardiff. Opening for Pink Floyd. Good times. FDUK was kind of like going to summer camp, if summer camp took place in the cold and damp of drizzly October with lots of beer and darts and crazy fun people who you had lots of deep conversations with, but never...

Veni. Vidi. FDUK.

Veni. Vidi. FDUK.

We came. We saw. We FDUKed. Yep... and an amazing FDUK it was. I promise I'm eventually going to stop with the terrible double entendre, but how often do you get this kind of opportunity? Just know that I will keep looking for places to slip it in as we go along (that...
