You know who else liked moustaches? I’ll tell you. Hitler. Stalin. Saddam. Gaddafi. Mussolini. That’s who. And here we are, being bullied into growing fanny dusters fit only for tyrants. Movember my ass. Having us walk around with moustaches for a month isn’t going to raise awareness of men’s health. All it will do is make women ridicule us even… Continue reading Hairy lips, healthy balls


Did You Get A Kick Out of UFC 193?

Hello World, Oh dear, were my predictions wrong… Not only did I pull a dismal 2 out of 5, but I was also wrong on so many levels, it justified this separate post to discuss the after MMath of UFC193. Where to start? I guess we’ll take it fight by fight: Stefan Struve Vs. Josh Rosholt: Not only did I pick the wrong winner, I … Continue reading Did You Get A Kick Out of UFC 193?


The Needle And The “Damage” Done

It was probably somewhere around the time Kurt Cobain died when I decided to actually listen to a Neil Young song. As many other artists who I’ve ignored for the longest time (whether for lack of interest, wrong perception, ignorance or all of the above), Neil just “didn’t do it for me”. Then he goes and writes “Sleeps With Angels“, and because it has to … Continue reading The Needle And The “Damage” Done


UFC 193 – Predictions

Hi everybody! Here we go! one of two awesome cards (on paper) to close out 2015 is coming up this weekend and I for one, am super excited! Pretty much all the events leading up to these two (193 and 194) served as appetizers, what with the never-ending UFC promo work during every break… I won’t lie, I’m sold.

What Would Jack Bauer Do?

…I don’t have much time, work is plenty, 24 has 8 season and some change, and the weekend is only so long. The following takes place between 8:29 PM and 9:29 PM [Phone rings…] Jack: “Bauer.” Amy: “Hi, you’ve reached Ping networks, my name is Amy, how can I help you?” Jack: “Amy, listen carefully because I will say this only once. I received the … Continue reading What Would Jack Bauer Do?


UFC 192 – Predictions

Hi everybody! Well, we had a good run of events taking place at a machine gun pace and then… they slowed down a little. Perhaps it’s for the best though. Don’t want to get the fans exhausted… Oh, who am I kidding? Give us more UFC, give us more!  A good solid card on paper with pretty much no down side. Women fight to open, Title … Continue reading UFC 192 – Predictions

Everything I Need to Know About Swearing I Learned in High School

Writers and readers assume that words have meaning and value. The prevalence and nonchalant attitude surrounding profanity in western culture might have us believe that using hardy vocabulary is appropriate willy-nilly – after all, that’s how we live. But perhaps that is the best reason to pay the most attention to when and where and why we drop these… Continue reading Everything I Need to Know About Swearing I Learned in High School


All Time Favorite Soccer Players

Welcome back folks, Today I’ll share my all time favorite soccer players. This is not “The BEST of” list. Just players I’ve always enjoyed watching (Which should explain why players like Pele are not in). I chose a starting 11 and another 11 substitutes and as a bonus I named a head coach and assistant coach. Let’s get this started. Starting Lineup: 11 Substitutes: Goal: … Continue reading All Time Favorite Soccer Players
