Does Anybody NOT Like L.L. Cool J?

Because I am suddenly old, I was watching VH1 Classic and the video for “Mama Said Knock You Out” came on. It really got me thinking. Does anybody NOT like L.L. Cool J? This is not rhetorical.  

Accept This

I just got a Ticketmaster alert that Kreator and Accept are coming to a theater near me. I am not sure what is more alarming, that Accept is opening for Kreator or that Ticketmaster has realized that I would care about Kreator and Accept more than, say, Glen Campbell or Jimmy Buffet who are both […]

Give and Take

I try not to ask too many things of you, but today I am asking for a favor. I have mentioned before that I sing with a choir. We aren’t a church choir or one of those a cappella groups that dresses up at Christmastime and sings in malls (Although, were I to be honest, […]

What Sucks: Part 1

You know what sucks? Realizing that your iPod is on repeat instead of shuffle after you get in the shower.

R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio 1942 – 2010

Ronnie James Dio lost his battle with cancer this morning. I first heard when Laurie sent me a text message. We were just talking about him yesterday when we had to explain “the goat” to my mom after Claudia kept doing this in pictures. That sucks. He was a legend. My thoughts are with his […]

I Think I Am Starting to Enjoy Mowing

I think I am starting to like mowing my yard. Really. Just hear me out for a second. I know, I always say that I don’t like outside and I hate nature unless it is the beach, but that sort of comes into play. First (and least surprisingly) it is good exercise and gives me […]
