Den of Honor: The Florida Panthers Get It Right

I have been a very harsh critic of the Panthers over the past five or six years because I give a shit about the team when nobody in management for years clearly did. As a fan, it hurts to watch your team, the team’s heritage, and the fans be treated indifferently and poorly. We have […]

A Collection From A Cluttered Mind

My friend John and I have an ongoing argument about AC/DC. We like them, but they’ve been recording the same songs for years. It is John’s (erroneous) contention that AC/DC has recorded six songs, while it is my (far more accurate) contention that they have recorded four songs. John has decided to go public with our dispute. […]

Food. Tasty, tasty food

I ate at a new Italian restaurant near my house called Il Forno. Fancy place, terrible, terrible location so I don’t hold out much hope they’ll survive for very long. Which is too bad because it’s pretty decent as far as the food goes. The bread is very similar to a pita and served with olive oil. […]

Clapton In Review

I guess I’ll make my official first CONTENT post on the new blog and begin with a review of the Eric Clapton concert 11 March 2010 at Bank Atlantic Center. This is my first Clapton concert, but it likely won’t be my last. His opening act was Roger Daltry. Roger said he was the “supporting […]

Busking For Nothing and your Chicks For Free

First, special thanks to Jose Marquez. Everyone needs a friend like him. But not everyone deserves one. You’ve all heard of American Idol. I apologize for bringing it up and in no way think that show has any redeeming value. However, in the same vein TfL (Transport for London) is now having a competition to […]

Alice in Wonderland

We saw Alice in Wonderland Burtonland today. After hearing all the negative comments on the 3D aspect, we decided to go for 2D. Alice was originally shot in 2D and the 3D was added afterwards. When this isn’t done properly your eyes and your brain don’t communicate and you can get headaches and/or nausea — […]

Having Sex With Your Hand (And Not Making A Mess)

Yeah, before we get to the subject line, let me first mention a few real stories. The most admired and trusted company in the world is? Apple Computer. Forbes, who conducted the survey says “this year generated the highest response rate in its history … For the third straight year Apple takes the No. 1 […]

The Big-Ass Concert Post to End All Concert Posts

Mom had mentioned that my cousin Ken could rattle off every concert he ever went to. I’m just not that good with my memory in some things. However, I do save my ticket stubs and so I was able to compile this list. Venue names are the name of the venue as printed on the […]

The Vatican and I Agree….

… on something. Seriously. While they didn’t check with me first, this article tells it all. It sort of relates to my infamous Led Zeppelin post by failing to mention Led Zeppelin at all. The actual article can be found on the Vatican’s website in L’Osservatore Romano, the Vatican’s official newspaper. If I’m going to […]
