Ass Kicking Girl Scouts

We have a free weekly paper here called, ironically enough, The Other Paper – as it’s an alternative to the Dispatch, which has been around since Jesus’ time.  Yes, I still occasionally read a dead tree publication, especially when it doesn’t put all of it’s printed articles online.  One such article in the City Beat section […]

Time Warner Putting a Crap on Bandwidth

Ok, it’s ‘up on the soapbox’ time.  You’ve probably heard the scuttle about Time Warner announcing plans to implement a tiered pricing structure for cable internet access based on bandwidth usage.  The plan as they explain it is to charge users who go over a certain limit more as they’re using more of the resources, […]

The Big ‘Doh!’ Part II – 72 Virgins, But Read the Fine Print

I read somewhere this week, at Http:// I think but could’ve been elsewhere (I read a lot of webpages each day), an interesting discussion about the Al-Qaeda terrorists who carried out the 9-11 attacks as having been motivated in part by a promise of 72 virgins in the afterlife.   Most of us have heard this […]

Funeral for a Cat

So, yesterday was a tough one.  My family and I had to put down one of our Siamese cats as he had kidney failure and was in a great deal of pain.  We have 3 Siamese – 2 blue points (which look kinda blue-grey if you’re unfamiliar with the breed) and a seal point (dark brown […]

Kids Say The Damndest Things

So among the many things that have made my world a little more interesting over the past few days, I had to pick up my new glasses tonight.  Probably the last pair I’ll ever have that aren’t bifocals (or so the Doc told me).  Getting old sucks.  Not that I was ever a chick magnet, but bifocals […]

American Dog Release New Video & Get Set to Tour Japan

Just saw on the official website that my favorite Columbus band, American Dog, has released a new video and will be touring in Japan this February.  Like it wasn’t bad enough we bombed that country, now this [only kidding guys!]. Seriously tho, if you like raunchy, bluesy, beer-fueled rock n’ roll I can’t recommend American […]

[PA] = ???

Ok, I may be the dumbest man on earth but I’m probably not alone.  “I ain’t Legend” to play off the title of Will Smith’s new movie.  Anyhow, here’s what I mean. I was perusing CD listings on Ebay yesterday, and noticed that several of them contained an unusual designation of [PA] in the product title.  […]

Dr. Feelgood’s Bar & Grill

This Saturday, if you happen to be lucky enough to be in the Clematis Street area of West Palm Beach, Florida – you can catch the grand opening of Dr. Feelgood’s Bar & Grill, whose owner is none other than Vince Neil of Motley Crue.   With the recent success of ‘The Heroin Diaries’, wonder if Nikki […]
