52 Reasons 2016 wasn’t a COMPLETE Bust

31 December, 2016

So, 2016. A veritable political shitfest, which I would be glad to see the back of were it not for the knowledge that the next four years will likely be even worse. But on the plus side, I did add another 52 albums to my music library, most of which will continue to bring me [...]

Dude, why is your Instagram feed just pictures of your t-shirts?

13 November, 2016

It’s a meditation on the impermanence of everything. OK, let me explain. During the Glory Years of my Youth (1985-1992) my all-consuming passion was music. I bought (and ‘illegally taped’ – and it didn’t “kill music”!) a lot of music, and went to see bands live as often as my meager finances would allow – [...]

Watch Out. Band On The Run

30 September, 2016

Well, I’ve only had it about 18 months, but my Fitbit Surge has effectively died on me. Well, died is probably a bit harsh as technically it still works for its primary intended purpose (tracking exercise), but first the bit between the notches on the band broke giving me the option of one big notch [...]

(Not-so-)instant “car”ma’s gonna get you…

18 September, 2016

So, although – as I suspected – switching to a new, subdued gray car from a bright yellow one has significantly reduced the number of speeding tickets I get (none in the two years I’ve had it, vs. one a year in the yellow car), it does seem to have increased the number of people [...]

7 Days 7 Singles from the ’80s (FB Repost)

20 August, 2016

A friend on Facebook recently roped me into posting a favorite single from the ’80s every day for a week. I normally avoid any form of ‘pressured participation’ in what is basically a chain letter, or an attempt to guilt you into ‘liking’ some page so the original poster can harvest your details (especially the [...]

Step Right Up

5 July, 2016

So, it’s been just over a year since I got my Fitbit. Yes, I’m one of those assholes who obsesses over their ‘step count’ and will happily walk in circles round the bedroom to nudge themselves over their 10,000 step daily goal before going to bed, if needs be. One of those assholes who used [...]

Silversun Pickups & Foals, Revention Center, Houston

2 May, 2016

So I thought it was about time I got my ageing indie kid on again, and took myself out to a gig. I think the last band I went to see was The Jackfields in DC back in 2004, so I’ve been keeping my eye on the local gig listings to see if anyone interesting [...]

He gets pulled over by the police, but you’ll never believe what happened next!

21 February, 2016

Well, I guess it was inevitable, but I finally earned myself another traffic ticket. This is almost 3 years after my last ticket, which is a personal record, so I guess I can’t complain. But, surprise, surprise, it wasn’t for speeding! Which itself is a minor miracle, as I was going 85 mph as I [...]
