Here’s Johnny…………………………………..

After almost 19 months, I’m back. Why? Why was it so long? Because I got a job and we all know that the machinery of capitalism is oiled by the blood of its workers. And like you, I am again one of them. Bleeding heavily. But I have already re-claimed my American sense of complacency and […]

Now That I’m 40, How ‘Bout A Bucket List ?

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………. So as I announced Wednesday, yesterday was my 40th birthday. I made it. Sometimes there was some question as to whether that would happen. But over the last four or five years, I increased the chances quite a bit by settling into a more sedentary lifestyle. That certainly helped. So where am […]

A Little From the Sports Pages

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………. A couple of things have happened in the sports world with a local flavor. On Friday, the Chicago Bears signed free agent Pro Bowl defensive end Julius Peppers to a huge contract. They also signed running back Chester Taylor away from the Minnesota Vikings where he’s been a pretty decent back […]

Why in God’s Name Would You Cheat ??

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya……… I’ve explored a couple of angles of infidelity in some previous posts. In one of them, I just observed that for the most powerful people around, cheating on their spouse comes with the territory. If you are a Congressman or a captain of industry, there is just a sense of entitlement that comes […]

Tribes Starting to Fracture on Survivor

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………. This past Thursday’s episode of Survivor was pretty good. They had a good reward/immunity challenge on the surface, but in the end, it wasn’t much of a challenge. And the tribes are really starting to identify the people they don’t exactly like within their own ranks. The show started with JT offering […]

Asshole of the Month February 2010

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya…….. Being a short month as it is, and with me usually taking weekends off, there was only a tad over three weeks for this month’s Asshole of the Month to present theirself. And I found myself a little short on candidates to be honest. In the end, it came down to […]

Just some observations in this crazy world

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya……….. Thought it was time to take a quick look at the world around me lately and tell you what I see. First off, the hard chargin’ band  West 34  is ready to jam out again this Saturday night at Rolling Lanes (bar) bowling alley in Countryside. If you missed them at […]

A few of the old man’s favorite things

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya……… I’ve been back from Nevada for a week now and it’s been almost two weeks since I lost my dad. I have to say that I’ve been totally floored by the number of friends that have reached out, called, sent notes and messages. A few years ago, I was basically underground […]

My Dirty Dozen Prophecies Revisited

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………… Well, it’s been another 7 or 8 weeks since I last reviewed my Dirty Dozen prophecies that I made on 11/5/09. I last checked on them 12/23/09 and a couple had already come true. And I know that another one came awfully close since then—but failed—so I thought perhaps I’d take […]

I’ll Give Ya A Hero

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya……… As I see a couple of the biggest back-patting pageants on full display lately, it reminds me of how much we over-glorify those that don’t deserve it. People who have no business being celebrated in the overblown manner in which these shows do it. They are not deities. A good deal […]
