It was 20 years ago today…. BeatleMania Now Review

Last night at the HardRock Paradise Live, Karen and I saw BeatleMania Now — formerly of Broadway fame. Anything Beatles has got to be good, right? RIGHT? We (Karen and I) showed up, and ate at Renegade after trying to decide if we wanted Tatu or not. The waitress saw us and booted our waiter […]

Trumped Again

I wrote way back in 2004 about Donald Trump and how poor I thought his business acumen was. I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for so long, but here it is 2009 and today, he did it again. Yeah, no joke. How the hell can you bankrupt a casino empire twice. I would encourage you […]

Science Fiction, Double Feature (RHPS)

Well in a post-birthday celebration, we had a great evening out. First, we (everyone except Karen and Timmy) ended up going to Renegade, the awesome BBQ restaurant at the Hard Rock. I tasted alligator — the first time I’ve ever eaten it. It tastes like ….. chicken …. and I wasn’t even going to eat […]

Randomness Part VII

I have switched to roman numerals for the random posts effective with this post. I know you don’t care. New photos on my Flickr photo blog again. That should clue you in my hard drive is back and mostly checked out. There will be more details later. I have made a car decision as of […]

More “I want to Own a Casino”

In a previous post I wrote about why I wanted to own a casino — mainly because only an absolute idiot can lose money while owning one (that idiot being Donald Trump). Most of my point can be found in my previous post, but I have more numbers to drop. I got my MGM/Mirage annual […]

Why I Want to Own a Casino

I own one share in every public casino company so I can get the annual reports. They’re fascinating. Plus, I love to gamble. If I lived in Las Vegas, I’d need gambler’s anonymous, I’m sure. Happily, I go there 2 to 4 times per year and stick within my budget every trip. So in today’s […]


Wow. Trump filed for bankruptcy for his casino operations. Why is this in my blog? I’ll tell you why. I know a bit about casinos because (A) I am a gambler and (B) I own stocks in lots of casinos. The one thing I can tell you is that all well-run casinos make money. Lots […]
