Krokus. Yeah.

A long time ago a friend of mine said “This ad reminds me of you.” and showed me this. I feel like that lady every single day. I mean, I never toured with Krokus and I was ten years old for most of 1983. I never followed any band around for an entire tour, but […]

Still Counts

As a freelance writer I was totally psyched when I saw this tweet. Me? Popular Mechanics? Tried to attribute? I clicked right over. Here is what I saw. Is that my refrigerator? What the hell? Yes, Popular Mechanics used a snapshot I took of the inside of my fridge for a flickr meme. It was […]

What Doesn’t Kill You…

My friends over at Studio 30 Plus asked if I would be one of their featured bloggers in July. This is the post I wrote for them with a few minor edits. * * * I broke down and hired a personal trainer. This says several things about me. 1) I finally crossed the line […]
