Bob Dylan's Beard

Things got weird. I started growing Bob Dylan's Beard.

Friday night is alright for fighting

I consider myself fairly civilized, but the wild man in me is drawn to the show “Man vs. Wild.”  On the latest episode, Bear cornered a porcupine in a burrow in Namibia.  Not a very smart move, but it made for great tv.  

Warning!! **SPOILER ALERT!** – Porcupine dies…not gruesome, but watch at your own risk. 

Enjoy this delicious cover.

Raise a Toast to Secrecy or Posting at Work Without Being Found Out

There are better things to do when you’re supposed to be doing other things.  But I’m not sure what those things are.

Mary Lou Lord

I’ve only heard Elliott Smith’s version of his own song as a live version.  I’m not sure if there is a studio version, but I’ll take these versions and be happy because I can hear Elliott in Mary Lou’s voice.  Apparently he didn’t think the song was good enough so she took it off his hands.  Lucky girl.  A full Mary Lou Lord post will come one day, but until then enjoy her studio version and these two live takes.

A New America or Ways to Not Die

Recently I was reading this book:

My daughters separately asked me what this book was about.  They both know who Barack Obama is and so I told them that it was basically about how he thinks he can make America better.  My youngest volunteered to tell me how to make America better and her plan included the following:

  1. Don’t litter.
  2. Save water.
  3. Recycle.
  4. Be nice to people.

My oldest daughter had a little different way of looking at things.  She’s obsessed with things that scare her and currently her biggest fear is a tornado. Her “New Deal” included:

  1. Make houses tornado proof.

That’s about it.  She just wanted to make sure catastrophic events didn’t happen.

As for me, I say: Let’s start by not littering so that tornadoes don’t have garbage in them.
