Rush Limbaugh Stop Pretense, Says Of Obama – “I Hope He Fails”

In a sick way, it’s been fun watching the Republicans wrangle over the contentious Obama issue since the election. I wondered on the morning after the election how long it would be before the Republicans dropped their pretense of being interested in bi-partisanship, and all this talk from some quarters of the G.O.P. about how… Continue reading Rush Limbaugh Stop Pretense, Says Of Obama – “I Hope He Fails”

Sarah Palin Announces SarahPAC: The Feeding of Her Ego Will Continue

If you thought Sarah Palin was going to just fade away, you really weren’t paying attention when she said the only difference between a soccer mom and a pit bull was lipstick. The Alaska governor, who was the Republican nominee for vice president in that race that John McCain lost to Democrat Barack Obama last… Continue reading Sarah Palin Announces SarahPAC: The Feeding of Her Ego Will Continue

The End of The World

I haven’t written much about the impending “End of The World”. Mostly because I’ve been busy. I mean, when the world ends, there’s not much I can do about it, right? So when it does, I’ll face it all with a bottle of Grand Marnier and a cigar made of leafy green goodness. I imagine… Continue reading The End of The World

Notes On A Dream

The first I remember was working in a warehouse. Reminded me of Clyde A. Short’s Kings Mountain warehouse. Wide, open spaces. Hardwood floors. Here and there, small piles of products where orders were being staged. I was disoriented, since I haven’t been in a warehouse in a decade, much less one similar to Clyde A.… Continue reading Notes On A Dream

Tropic Thunder

We watched Tropic Thunder tonight. It wasn’t something I’ve been dying to watch, but all the clips I’d seen of Robert Downey Jr. sort of bumped it up a bit in my estimations. I’m not a Ben Stiller fan. Sorry, folks. He does nothing for me. So I’m not likely to be drawn to a… Continue reading Tropic Thunder

Playing The Big Muff

I hooked up the Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi tonight through the computer to see what it sounded like (and to make sure that it worked). That was a lot of fun. Running it into the computer, I was able to match it with various virtual amplifiers using Amplitube 2, and discovered, much to my surprise,… Continue reading Playing The Big Muff

Fox News, The Day After – Maybe Obama Isn’t Really President!

I woke up this morning wondering what the Right-Wingers made of yesterday’s inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th president of the United States. From what I’ve heard, the majority of Americans were greatly affected by the day and the man, and everyone felt like significant history was being witnessed. So… what was the Right… Continue reading Fox News, The Day After – Maybe Obama Isn’t Really President!

President Barack Obama

Notes from the Inauguration I’m watching the inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th president of the United States. I was surprised to become emotional at one point already, when the camera took a long shot and showed that people are stretched from the Capitol building all the way to the Washington Memorial, filling the… Continue reading President Barack Obama

Barack Hussein Obama – 44th President of the United States of America

I wanted to congratulate President Barack Obama on the occasion of his inauguration as the 44th president of the United States of America. It is my hope that he can fulfill the promise and hope that so many Americans have hung upon his Administration. Today, there is a sense of belonging that has been expressed… Continue reading Barack Hussein Obama – 44th President of the United States of America

Listening To The Band

Victoria and I listened to some CDs of the band last night. I was glad that Billy gave me some copies of our last two practices. It’s always better to listen to performances after the fact. Sometimes what seemed so horrible at the time isn’t as bad as you thought it was. Basically, that’s the… Continue reading Listening To The Band
