Continued Dumbassery, Duke Chapel Edition

By | June 2, 2019

Friends, consider the video embedded below. If I’ve done things right, clicking it should cause it to start playing at the 13 minute and 50 second mark. When the video cuts away from the the Rev. Dr. Carol Gregg encouraging us to share the peace of Christ with one another, look to the front row on the right.… Read More »

Wienermobile!

By | May 30, 2019

So Carole and I were down in central North Carolina over the weekend and while we certainly did lots of fun and interesting things in our old stomping grounds (we used to live in Durham in the mid-1990s), I’d have to say that one of the high points of our trip was our chance to see and pose… Read More »

Arachnids

By | May 4, 2019

Being me means things like finding a bag of plastic tarantulas in your bongo drum bag and going “oh that’s where I put those.”1I posted this to Instagram the other day and Carole thought it was really funny. So, I’m resharing it here to immortalize it, so to speak. Footnotes   [ + ] 1. ↑ I posted this to… Read More »

“The Frosted Pop-Tarts of Credit Unions”

By | April 21, 2019

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you a tale of silliness. Whereas: Carole hates processing her personal email. A lot of it is stuff that’s only somewhat important, if that, and she finds it frustrating to have to sort through it all. I read incredibly fast. I can’t sing worth a damn and I’m overweight and un-athletic, but… Read More »

Car Wash Psychedelia

By | March 17, 2019

You have to take your hat off to the American entrepreneurial spirit. Posed the question, “how can we make more money running a car wash?” America has answered “Appeal to the stoners”. I give you the Eco Car Wash of Williston, Vermont: This particular car wash is the first in our area to offer a subscription-based model, where for… Read More »

Hamburguesas con mantequilla de cacahuete

By | February 21, 2019

So I saw an article on Atlas Obscura about a legendary Missouri restaurant and its “guberburgers” — hamburgers topped with peanut butter. Talk about “bringing back old memories”… I spent eight months in a s___hole El Salvadoran jail between March and November of 2005. They fed us nothing but peanut butter slathered burgers, grilled medium well, on brioche buns.… Read More »

WE JUST LIKE SIGNS

By | February 20, 2019

Vermont’s not doing much, election-wise, in 2019. We’ve got select board and school board voting and we’ve got to vote on town and school budgets, but this isn’t really a “wallpaper the area with campaign signs” year. That said, there’re a few signs still up from last fall’s election cycle here and there around town, and Carole and… Read More »

Update From The Front Lines

By | February 11, 2019

I spend almost all my time traveling for work — until this week I’ve been on the road every week so far this year: Texas, Texas, Texas, Arkansas, Texas. It gets lonely on the road sometimes, especially when I’m one or more time zones away from home and when Carole doesn’t get home until late due to rehearsals (choir… Read More »

RIP Russell Baker (1925-1919)

By | January 23, 2019

I hardly ever post regarding the death of a celebrity; I reason that sufficient other people will take care of the public fawning over the dear departed’s legacy. (And that, in any event, it bothers me that we seem to care more about the lives of famous people who we have no actual connection with than our actual… Read More »
