Blog on Blog Action

·

What I ate for lunch and dinner.

I was originally going to title this "Blog on Blog" to sound like Dylan's Blonde on Blonde LP. But, I thought the "action" sounded sexier. And as Nigel Tuffnel said in Spinal Tap "What's wrong with being sexy?" So, I ...

A Delicious Stew (and the negro problem)

·

Musician Stew is praised.

Okay, before the letters come in, that is a band. They're from L.A. and called The Negro Problem. Their singer sometimes goes solo, with bassist/partner-in-crime, Heidi. His name is Stew. I didn't think I'd ever want to just write in ...

Suge Knight in Shining Armour

·

Being angry about court cases.

Ha! I tricked you. I got you to read, thinking it's about that rap producer dude, when this is really a Phil Spector rant. Okay, well, Spector did make me appreciate Knight more. When Suge fought, it was with other ...

The Lowe Down

Going to L.A. to see Nick Lowe, and how songwriters get rich.

So, my buddy Doug is trying to get me to go up to L.A. Tuesday to see Nick Lowe in concert. Who is he, you ask. Well, he had this great pop song in the late 70s called "Cruel to ...

Reality Bites

A quick thought on reality shows

I used to make fun of all my friends that recorded their reality shows. Survivor, the few minutes I saw, was corny as hell; seeing who could stand the longest on a poll, and then putting out the flame. The ...

Revenge is best served...like hot pizza

Columnists that suck, and getting revenge on people.

Sometimes it's painful reading other columnists in other cities newspapers. You wonder how they got the gig. My current favorite guy to hate, is this Gene Washington who took over for Dave Barry (who was great). He is funny about ...

Vegas Without a Sting Operation

Curious about gambling problems

So, I'm heading to Vegas for the weekend. There's supposed to be a storm. That'll make traffic fun. A guy I play racquetball with, told me his ex-wife had a gambling problem. The woman he's dating now, started going to ...

Controversial Carl's Commercial

·

Why some commercials get banned.

So, Carls Jr. pulled their commercial, where the kids in class do a rap about "flat buns" as an attractive teacher talks about the world being flat. A lot of teachers were upset. I'm not sure why. There are worse ...

Writing about writing

·

Everyone complains about their job. I'm complaining about my music stories that have gotten turned down.

I always get cool jobs. When I was in radio for 5 years, it was free concerts, CDs, and...talking on the radio and being paid. When I was between jobs, and freelance writing, my friend was doing music for Playstation ...

OJ Simpson, what else?

·

OJ Simpson's current plight, and other legal things that pop into my mind.

Okay, so...everyone is sick of talking about the OJ case. Not me. Hell, I was still talking about the last OJ case when this recent scenario hit the airwaves. I think the Palace Station Casino should sell shirts that say ...

A Basketball Jones No Longer Jonesing

Competitiveness in sports

Why do adults act like children, when it comes to competing in sports events? And, I won't even get started on when they watch their 8-year-olds play little league. I stopped playing basketball, because of the amount of idiots I'd ...

Grocery Store Parking Lot Problems

So, moving out of the grocery store, and into the parking lot, is a whole other mess. First, let me quickly say...Horton Plaza has spaces for pregnant women. How insane is this? If a woman is in good enough condition ...

12 Items or Less, Grocery Store Etiquette Part II

Grocery store problems with customers

I won't even get into the 12 items or less lines. I think that is more the fault of the store employee for not calling the jerk on it, or other people in line. But, I will say, if you ...

Commenting on other peoples groceries

I recently grew a beard. I wanted to see how many strands of white hairs I'd have in it. But, when I was shaving recently, I would pick up any kind of disposable razors I saw. I wasn't picky. When ...

People performing badly in competitions (beauty pagaents), and getting famous from it.

Van's the Man

My opinion of Van Morrison.

Is there anything greater than hearing Van Morrison on the radio? Oh damn. I started that like one of those lame columns Larry King does, where he has non-sequitars about the stupidest stuff. He'll have a sentence that reads: Is ...
