Never Forget

The shit I’ve had to deal with the last couple days has reminded me of a quote from one of my favorite movies, Citizen Kane. In the scene, New York political machine boss Jim Gettys is trying to force the title character, Charles Foster Kane,...

How I Lost 100 Pounds in 7 and a Half Months

I lost 100 pounds in 228 days (7.49 months). I’ve talked about this several times since I’ve been back, but never at this length. Although I’ve yet to reach the peak of physical fitness, the weight loss I achieved is immediately noticeable. That’s mostly because...

SITE STATUS UPDATE: Thank You for Your Patience

It’s been a busy few days for me since my return, although a good portion of that has had to do with “real life” stuff such as car maintenance, etc. It turns out that being absent from society for 8 months leaves a lot of...

2018: Kick it Up a Notch

I hadn’t planned on writing a specific New Year’s message, but my wife, collaborator, and consistent champion, Nora, pretty much ordered me to do so. As a result, here we are. Before I get to 2018, let me say a few words about the previous...

The New Girl

Like just about everyone else in the country, I’ve been following the fallout from the Harvey Weinstein situation very closely. The amount of men who have seen their careers destroyed is damn near too long for me to mention in one paragraph. Plus, you know...

BREAKING NEWS: Mainstream Media Sucks

With the exception of talk radio, my media diet over the last six months has consisted of nothing but mainstream offerings. Tech coverage is almost non-existent in the MSM, you hear very little about free speech issues on college campuses, and you get short-changed when...

The Long Goodbye

When I got into some trouble last summer, I had hoped to avoid going away for a stretch. I don’t think what I did is worth the punishment I ended up receiving, but that happens sometimes. It’s still my fault for putting myself in such...

Lies, Damned Lies, & Autistics

So, I’ve been in the “news” recently and I felt it would be appropriate to come here and bang out a few hundred words, even in the midst of vacation time with my wife. Sometimes, it’s best to hear things directly from the horse’s mouth....

Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom, Sandra

If you’ve followed this blog, you may know that my mom has been ill as of late. Ever since she had to go on dialysis for her kidney failure 6 years ago (first peritoneal and now hemo), she’s had some health issues. Most of these...
