Surv-yay! in Rhapsody in Yellow

I shamelessly stole this from the inky kitty. and dickson. How many pairs of converse shoes do you own? 0. They are too narrow. Any other names your parents planned to give you? I think I was sup...


So, last we spoke, I had removed the soiled switch panels from my car… …removed the electronics and ran them through the dishwasher …and since the paint was chipping off, I decided to respray t...


When I was a kid in the 80s, my grandparents had this RCA console TV… with a channel changer that looked just like this. Then, somewhere along the line, we (d)evolved to something that looked li...


Well, folks… it’s time for another semi-quarterly song quiz. There are some songs that are super easy, and others that are a bit… esoteric? I don’t know. I should use that word more often. In ...


Sorry, Kate. You can either be Mario, or Luigi. I mean, this was 1985, after all. And, on this 35 year-old black and white TV… I doubt you could tell the difference, anyways. Also, on the night...

Change My Mind in Rhapsody in Yellow

Unpopular opinion: Jimmy Buffett’s version of “Mele Kalikimaka” is every bit as good as Bing Crosby’s.


If there is any justice… any justice, whatsoever… left in this cruel, cruel, world.... John Prine would be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Sure, he’s not as well-known as some folks...


I hate to be a pretentious music snob Dickface McTwatterson, but… Like… how the fuck??? How the fuck.


It’s been a few months, but I’ve found the time to record another song quiz! This one has some rather… interesting choices, shall I say. Definitely something for everyone… In case you still hav...


Fifty years, folks… fifty years.


It’s baaaaaaaaaaaaack… I guess we’ll see if things are different this time around..


Man, I wish there was a search function on PB… I know, I know… I say that every time. Anyways… now that the holidays are over and holiday music is fresh in your mind… I thought it would be the pe...


Die Hard. Christmas movie, or not? Please discuss…

That’s That. in Rhapsody in Yellow

Well. That was easily… in the top five of the most heartbreaking, soul-crushing, dick-softening, defeats that I’ve experienced in my three decades of pro-sportsing. And I totally knew it was go...


WE HAVE A TIE! Sorry. As you can see, I was on a bit of a Tom Petty kick this time around… One Free Fallin’ -Tom Petty Two Wildflowers -Tom Petty Three Up Around the Bend- Creedence Clearwater Re...

The New Normal in Rhapsody in Yellow

I wrote this on OD about Sandy Hook. I’ve reposted it every time there’s been a mass shooting, which seems like it’s happened more often lately. Obviously, we don’t know much about what happened...


Like the final, cum-seeping spasms of a satisfying orgasm, Halloween is in its last throes here in my neck of the woods. I think I have time to get one more Halloween playlist in before I am Hal...


Does anyone spell it with an apostrophe? “Hallowe’en?” I mean, I know it’s technically more correct or whatever, but I find it to be annoyingly pretentious. Kind of like when Giada de Laurentiis ...


“Car’s running perfect. The new motor is running great. But… we have to show you something.” Oh, fuck me. That’s not what I wanted to hear. They opened up the back seat of my car, and showed me J...


I was going to write an exhaustive, section by section TJ’s shopping guide. But… that’s just a lot of stuff that no one really wants to read (even more so than what I am about to do). Instead, I’...


After writing about my three and a half year tenure at Trader Joes, a couple of you requested a Trader Joe’s shopping guide. So, here it is. My unbiased, unfiltered, somewhat insider guide to wha...


With Hurricane Irma possibly making landfall right on top of my little slice of the Eastern Seaboard, I’ve started stockpiling some necessities. We also have some beer, wine, tequila, and some C...


NASCAR. It’s been a part of my life… well, for about as long as I’ve been masturbating. Over thirty years. I won’t speak much to my mental capacity, but I do seem to have a knack for memorizing r...


Thank you to evvvvvvvverrrrrryyyyyone who played. Really good turnout this time around, folks! And a lot of you did really, really well! Here are the answers… One- “Sweet Transvestite” -Rocky Hor...
