    I’m often described as being “highly neurotic” and I agree with that 100%.  I just don’t agree that “neurotic” means what some people think it means.  Some people go by the boring, standard definition as outlined in the dictionary describing someone who is “mentally disturbed, unstable, or unbalanced”.  And while that’s all technically true of me, I think it’s important to point out that “neuro” means “brain, nerve or nervous system” so if “artistic” means someone with great art skills,…

    I think most cats technically already have great mustaches, but you just can’t tell because we don’t shave the rest of their bodies, and I think that’s probably very sad for them because they can’t show off their dapper kitty facial hair. Or at least, that was the reason that I gave Victor when he asked me why I kept trying to stick a fake mustache on Hunter S. Thomcat.     PS.

    Mikhail Lomonov’s ode, originally titled, “An Evening Reflection Upon God’s Grandeur Prompted by the Great Northern Lights,” was a paean to the wonder of creation. He used natural elements like fire, water, and wind to describe scenes of wonder and of chaos that inspired both awe and fear. He emphasized the continuous, unpredictable changes of the natural world. In this update, natural elements are replaced by features of the digital world, that likewise provide scenes of wonder and chaos, that we likewise awe and fear. We similarly question the scope, and…

    Sure, there are strict workplaces that demand professionalism on the way their employees dress or conduct themselves. But going to work every day with the same uptight outfit can be stifling, especially if the organization wants to encourage creativity from its workforce. I agree that there are some workplace fashion do’s and don’ts that everyone should adhere to, but there are certain days when having office theme parties can break the monotony of the 9 to 5 schedule. How about a Futurama theme to toast to the future of the company?

  • Are Brain Surgeons Really Smarter Than The Rest Of Us?

    23 Sep 2013 | 12:31 pm
    We have all grown up hearing the phrase "its not brain surgery" referring to something less than the ultimate thought-task. Are brain surgeons really all that smarter than the rest of us? If a dishwasher had the right training couldn't he do brain surgery? Would a brain surgeon be able to run your Hobart instead of defaulting to the clavicle out of confused frustration? I think I would much rather take my chances in the dish room with the surgeon at the end of the day, but I think I would also allow the dish man his degree upon completion. I do believe both would be up to the job. Often what…
  • Why A Ford Focus Is A Smart Used Car Purchase

    5 Aug 2013 | 12:07 pm
    The average American buys 9.4 cars in their lifetime according to research by Polk. This number dropped from the previous average of 13 prior to the most recent recession. Obviously, people are being a little more cautious with their expenditures and this would seem to have extended to automotive purchases. So while there are many decision making factors in deciding which car to purchase, overall value is an increasing priority. Enter the Ford Focus.Ford's resurgence in the automotive market has been well documented the past several years, but the reverie surrounding the brand doesn't seem to…

    There are some things you should NEVER say to someone who’s judging a limerick (or other poetry) contest. So I was amused to read that Pat Myers (who presides over the weekly Washington Post Style Invitational contests) received this message from a limerick contest entrant: First of all I truly despise poetry in any and all of it’s forms. Mainly because I am horrific at both interpreting and creating it. Now on to my entries: In my opinion, if you’re going to say something that stupid, the least you can do is say it via limerick.

To be fair though, it’s only in response to really important messages like “Wanna get dinner” or “Omggggg I’m sooooo hungoverrrrr.” You can’t let riveting, time sensitive shit like that go without a response for long y’know. But after reading about how Christina Jahnz wound up with a giant metal pole stuck up her ass after she decided to answer a text while driving, maybe a few of the texts I get that are along the lines of “Haha he texted me a winky face, what do I say back?” can wait…
  • Jimmy Graham, Victor Cruz and a Cast of NFL Characters Play Fantasy ‘SportsCenter’

    Kyle Koster

    OK, so they don’t really play Fantasy SportsCenter. But they would if they weren’t so busy lifting weights, studying the playbook, doing media and refusing to shorten THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE to the NFL in speech. Two of the league’s top receiving targets imagined what such a draft would look like for a new commercial. I’m not sure how much they paid Cruz to select noted Philadelphia Eagles fan Kevin Neghandi, but it must have been enough to abandon all principles. I’ll just go ahead and assume Scott Van Pelt was the overall top pick. Anyone else would just…

    Stefanie Williams Wanna know what I do? Have sex. Wanna know what’s on my phone? Nude pics. Wanna know why it’s not a big deal? Because 99% of every sexually active person in the country does the same shit. How do I know this? Because I have a brain. Because as I was skimming the pics leaked in this ridiculous nude-gate pic scandal, I found myself saying, “I’ve totally posed like that” and chuckling over the fact that we women are all really unoriginal when it comes to our nude poses. But apparently so are dudes. Especially baseball ones. You all take topless pics with your shaving…

    Six years ago, Jenny and I lived in Alpharetta, GA. We had a small house with green carpet and a purple bedroom that I called “Purple Rain.” The older woman before us who had owned it had what I believe interior designer’s call “Thomas Kinkade Palette.” We had young kids that were in that intense age where it’s impossible to leave the house, you destroy restaurants when you show up and you get roughly 92 minutes of uninterrupted sleep at night. In many ways we were in the survival years, but in others we were just starting to dream. Every few weeks, we would drive to a planned…

Since we Christians are so into “teachable moments” I thought I might be able to redeem this but turning it into a teaching tool. Let’s do life together. We’re in a season. We should sit in circles not rows! Sorry, I get a little carried away when I start down the path of the ole Christian conversation.

Although, that symbol usually doesn’t mean Christian, it means, “Worst driver ever.” If you’ve never been cut off by a Christian you have never driven in the Bible Belt. I can’t prove they are Christian or homeschool or any number of other things that might qualify them to be a topic on Stuff Christians Like. But they are stuff and I do like them, which means they fulfill 66% of the criteria and if I hit .660 in baseball I…

    This is a verse I started carrying in my pocket last week. Here are a few things I think about it. 1. “Taste,” seems like an invitation or a dare. I dare you to try. I dare you to believe for just a second. To not get wrapped up in every bad experience you’ve had with fake Christians or mean churches or any of the clutter that can accompany Christianity. Just taste. 2. “see that the Lord is good,” is one of the hardest things for me to believe sometimes. In my head I know it. I believe he is good, but there are days when I struggle to accept that.

It was such a pleasure to be with them, as they were polished, poised, and had obviously put a lot of thought into how they would be seen and regarded. They were, quite frankly, the opposite of most clergy groups I mingle with. They had actual hair do’s — curled, up and tousled on purpose, long locks and big mutton chop sideburns on a few of the guys, carefully arranged curls cut really well and shining with a dab of…

Instead, I woke up feeling like my whole body had been replaced with one that actually works. When that happens, you take every advantage of it, especially since I’ve suffered from some recurring, frustrating knee pain lately. Pain that’s kept me from doing any kind of meaningful exercise. Since I had zero pain today, I set out to do one or two miles. Which turned into four, which turned into six and…

    18 Aug 2014 | 5:38 am
    So I have a review over at the Intercollegiate Review Online. An excerpt: “When people have the freedom to choose, they choose wrong. Every single time.” So says the Chief Elder, a firm believer in the Reformed doctrine of total depravity, apparently. In The Giver, the film adaptation of Lois Lowry’s 1993 award-winning, giga-billion-selling novel, we are introduced to a Community born out of the Ruins, the result of a cataclysm so devastating that remnant elites constructed an artificial environment in which there is no war, no suffering, no envy, no jealousy, no differences to fight…

    22 Mar 2014 | 4:06 pm
    So Sister Cristina Scuccia is a 25-year-old Sicilian nun who appeared on the Italian edition of The Voice. J-Ax, apparently, is a rapper of devilish reputation. When asked by the host what the Vatican thought about her appearing on The Voice, Sister Cristina replied, “Listen, I really don’t know. I am waiting for Pope Francesco to call me on the phone . . . He always says we should go out and evangelize, telling [people that] God doesn’t take anything away from us, but will give us more.” Enjoy. Filed under: "Entertainment", General Strangeness
  • A Tribute to Philip Seymour Hoffman

    Anthony Sacramone
    15 Mar 2014 | 2:51 pm
    Crafted by one Caleb Slain, this is a wonderful mosaic of Hoffman’s work. My favorite performances had to have been those given in Charlie Wilson’s War, The Master, Mission Impossible III (in which he definitely plays against type, and to great effect), Doubt, and Synechdoche, New York. (His Oscar-winning performance as Truman Capote goes without saying.) See if you agree with me that there are a couple of overwrought turns, particularly in Patch Adams and Almost Famous. Warning: there are many many uses of the eff word. Many many. Filed under: R.I.P.

COMIC GENIUS: Think “Adolf and Eva — their home life.” Like The Honeymooners, only starring a genocidal madman and his lady love. Imagine the gags: Hitler has a bad day at at the Eastern Front and decides he’s not taking the garbage out no matter what Eva says. Eva think Hitler’s having an affair and so decides to bug his office. Hitler and Eva are…

But the Sixth Circuit did hold today that the convictions of Mullet and 15 other gang members under federal hate-crime laws cannot stand.

    Dear Continental, American Airlines, Southwest, Delta, United, et al: I have the solution to prevent hijackings and get our airline industry back on its feet at the same time. Replace all female flight attendants with good lookin’ strippers. Why not? The attendants have gotten old and haggard looking. They don’t even serve food anymore, so what’s the loss? The strippers would double, triple, perhaps quadruple the alcohol consumption and get a “party atmosphere” going in the cabin. Muslims would be afraid to get on the planes for fear of seeing naked women. And,…

    A blonde walks into a bank in New York City and asks for the loan officer. She says she is going to Europe on business for two weeks and needs to borrow $5,000. The bank officer says the bank will need some kind of security for the loan; so, the blonde hands over the keys to a new Rolls Royce. The car is parked on the street in front of the bank. She has the title and everything checks out. The bank agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan. The bank’s president and its officers all enjoy a good laugh at the blonde for using a $250,000 Rolls Royce as collateral against a…

    Hans Grapje was raised in a Catholic school in The Hague and, as a young man, aspired to become a priest, but was drafted into the Army during WWII and spent two years co-piloting B17s until his aircraft was shot down in 1943 and he lost his left arm. Captain Grapje spent the rest of the war as a chaplain, giving spiritual aid to soldiers, both Allied and enemy. After the war, he became a priest, serving as a missionary in Africa, piloting his own plane (in spite of his handicap) to villages across the continent. In 1997, Father Grapje was serving in Zimbabwe when an explosion in a silver…

    Barack H. Obama not only smiles and waves nicely, always knows the right thing to say, too! President Obama and the Queen at London Heathrow, a 300-foot long red carpet is stretched out to Air Force One and Mr. Bush strides to a warm but dignified handshake from Queen Elizabeth II. They ride in a silver 1934 Bentley limousine to the edge of central London where they board an open 17th century coach hitched to six magnificent white matching horses. As they ride toward Buckingham Palace, each looking sideways and waving to the thousands of cheering Britons lining the streets, all is going well.

    1 Sep 2014 | 7:11 pm
    Article by Michael Taylor If you've been on the internet, Twitter, Vine, Instagram, or any type of social media this past summer, you've likely seen references to the smash single "Hot N***a" by Brooklyn-based rap artist Bobby Shmurda. It seems that this song became immensely popular almost overnight, thanks to the endless amount of Vines parodying it and its signature "Shmoney Dance." I'm going to assume pretty much everybody on the internet under 40 is aware of Shmurda and this street anthem, so I'll spare many of the details of how popular it truly is. But the song,…

But let's assume that you're not French (because you're taking cooking advice from me, and as any French people who have seen me cooking can attest to...don't do that. My cooking advice has on more than one occasion led to an outbreak of scabies in northern Louisiana), and then we can go ahead and translate amuse bouche. It means "mouth amuser."Amuse…

    Many great novels, like a lot of great art, force us to confront things we’d rather avoid. I get that. But oh my lord, literature can be a massive downer. I first encountered that in high school, when we read the short story “Paul’s Case” back to back with The Mayor of Casterbridge. Let’s be clear: astonishing works of art are astonishing. But after years of stories where plucky protagonists invariably wrested victory from the jaws of defeat, they were a shock. As an introduction to tragedy, it was like learning how to eat spicy food by eating a scotch bonnet…

    I don’t know anything about wine (although I did this cartoon about the language of wine). I prefer whiskey, honestly. But sometimes you have to buy a bottle of wine. And when I do, I’m just as likely to be influenced by the label as anything else, because – yeah, art. I made a list over at Curator about the different categories of wine label design, and what each says about it’s buyer. Read it here.

    The 21st Precinct police building, on East 22nd St in New York City, is a long-defunct building targeted for demolition. But before it gets the wrecking ball, it is the temporary home of a plethora of great wall art, curated by Robert Aloia. Brooklyn Street Art has the story behind the exhibit as well as a good documentation of images, so I won’t merely repost anything that you can see there. But I went to the opening this weekend (it is up for one more week) and here are some shots from that. It was hot, crowded, and claustrophobic, but as they wrote at BSA, there aren’t too…

    It’s suddenly that time of year when my hand is sticking to the page, because of the humidity. It’s time to break out those cooling summer cartoons! An issue of the New Yorker makes a nice face shield. And you can use the back issues – you know you’ve got them lying around – to cover your other body parts. I did this one a few years ago and am still waiting for the movie to be made about this summer superhero. For this week’s issue I thought of a similar idea. Full disclosure: I got my grad school degree in drawing shade. My professors said it was at least…

    I was already a fan of Fela Soul, Amerigo Gazaway’s full album mashup of Fela Kuti and De La Soul tunes, so when he asked me to do the cover for Yasiin Gaye, the second volume of his project mashing up the music of Mos Def and Marvin Gaye, it took me a hot second to mull it over before saying yes. The record has something of a backstory. Gazaway’s previous release, Bizarre Tribe, which set the vocals from The Pharcyde over the music of A Tribe Called Quest, met a quick internet death.  It was effectively shut down by Sony, who cited copyright infringement despite the fact that…

    I recently watched a fantastic documentary about Ginger Baker. See below. It’s a great film that goes beyond drums — it goes straight into the brilliant hellstorm that is Baker’s brain, and it teaches us all a thing or two about survival, resilience and being true to yourself and your art. It’s fantastic.

    It’s amazing how quickly I lost the willingness to write. In 2012 I challenged myself to write every day for a year. The first month was trying but after that I became proficient. My mind started searching during the day for topics to write later. I’d be riding the subway and an idea would hit and I start typing furiously on my phone. Now I just listen to Howard Stern. At home I write a few Twitter jokes and then to bed. I’ve noticed over the past few years doing less and less of the things I used to enjoy. I rode my bike to work for years and then abruptly stopped last…

Anyway, I was dreaming two nights ago and I came up with something that made me laugh. It woke me up around 3am. Then when I woke up later that morning, it was still funny to me. Often stuff that I write in my dreams doesn’t maintain it’s hilarity in beta consciousness. I went about…

    Friends and Family, Some of you might be wondering who I am. My name is Kate. You might be asking yourself why Angie would ask me, a complete stranger to give the matron of honor speech at her wedding. It’s a fair question. I am here because she was low on girlfriends. Mindy from Facts of Life had a barbecue this weekend. If we want to be completely honest, she’s can’t stand Clooney’s fiancee. So she asked me because all I had going on was a birthday party at a trampoline park and I will go anywhere that is serving champagne. Well Done First thing right out of the…

When I pretended to win in my mirror for the last few weeks I never thought it would feel this way. These are real tears! I didn’t have to take any pills or throw in some eye drops in the rest room. This is legit, yo. When I was asked to play Debbie Gibson in Electric Youth: The Deborah Gibson Story I never anticipated this night.

She had decided to cut them 30 minutes before show time so she could really enhance her Devil Wears Prada persona. Vicki is trying to buy a Mexican restaurant. If you can’t sell insurance in Mexico you may as well sell margaritas. Lizzie acknowledged it was her “first reunion” and then spoke four words. Vicki managed to offend anyone Asian, gay, or from Oklahoma. On Feng Shui : “I didn’t realize it’s not all for…

    Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening Works When I was offered a free Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening Kit, I was undecided. My husband is the white teeth freak. And you can’t throw a stone without hitting a package of whitening strips these days.  There are also dentist office options like Zoom that, while expensive ($600ish), get the whole over-time whitening process finished in about an hour. For Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening, I would also have to make a mold of my teeth, have soft plastic trays made and sent to me, and then walk around with solution in them, pressed against my teeth.

    Lately apps that make an average human sitting on a couch feel like they are living in luxury have been all the rage. With the click of a button you can have your groceries, an Uber, or a random man who has agreed to do your laundry at your door. And for people who live in a jam packed city like me, these new apps focused on instant gratification can be invaluable. It’s almost like we are living in an alternate universe where The Little Red Hen does all the work, drives through LA traffic, deals with the parallel parking and STILL lets you eat all the cornbread at the end of the day.

    I would like to argue that experiences are better than things. I recently read this article about the idea of Communitas by Bob Horan. Here is my favorite excerpt from the article, but you should probably read the whole thing here. In 1969 an anthropologist named Victor Turner took an existing ritual theory and described something he observed as “Communitas.” You see, there are stages to a ritual. It begins with being separated from the normal, then there’s a transition into another realm of being, and ends with the reincorporation into everyday life. Turner found that when people are…

The carousel was old and small, and wobbled as everyone climbed aboard. I put him on top of a brown horse with a flowing mane and wild eyes – It was a good fit. He grabbed onto the pole with both hands, leaned into it, trembled a bit and looked at me with worried eyes as he surveyed how high he was and felt the wobbling of the ride before it had even begun. He looked up and noticed that the pole was at its low point and asked me if it would go even…

    If you’re in the market for 87 pounds of cheese, consider making this edible table… 2 of 3 people found the following review helpful i forgot the crackers, April 29, 2013 By wallace This review is from: Academia Barilla Parmigiano Reggiano DOP, 87 Pound Wheel (Misc.) when this cheese arrived i was amazed at the sheer size of it, i couldn’t work out what to do with it, my wife came up with the cracking idea to stick 4 poles into the bottom and use it as a table. I couldn’t wait to show off my table to my best friend he arrived and at first didn’t realize the…

    I was tagged by my friends Matt and JB Clem to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. #ALSIceBucketChallenge Sure, I could have just done the camera phone thing and uploaded a raw video, but I went the extra mile for my viewers and gave you a properly edited video. I do what I can. If you weren’t already familiar with ALS / Lou Gehrig’s Disease prior to the Ice Bucket Challenge, I recommend you read Tuesday With Morrie. It isn’t a long or difficult read. Do you have a charity you donate to regularly? Any charities you feel deserve some extra attention? Leave a comment about it…

    Epiphanies that will Alter the Course of Human Events

  • Take a 50-Week Vacation

    Greg Mischio
    1 Sep 2014 | 6:00 am
    My family recently enjoyed a fantastic one-week vacation. Upon returning, our lives plunged into 50 weeks of prolonged hell. Why do we subject ourselves to the post-vacation blues? Instead, try my epiphany, which turns the tables on the vacation paradigm. Why do we spend so much money on elaborate vacations? I know you only live once (or so the rumor goes), and that there are miraculous sights and scenes to behold. But holy cow, vacations cost a bundle, and I’m not just talking about financial pain. No, I’m referring to the emotional and psychological wreckage that results from the…

    Unless you’re holed up Unabomber-style, you’ve likely encountered the ALS Ice Bucket challenge. It’s produced amazing results, but we’ll get to the cure faster if someone takes my ALS Billionaire Challenge. It’s nice to see charity go viral, especially when it results in $41 million in donations. Don’t get me wrong, $41 million is a tremendous improvement over the $2 million they raised last year. But if it’s cash we need to truly rid the world of ALS, then I think we should take this one step further with my ALS Billionaire challenge. What’s the challenge?  All you have…

    18 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
    I wrote this epiphany from my car. I had been sitting in a traffic jam for two and a half weeks, making infinitesimal progress every 1.5 days. The solution? Creating the world’s first construction-free highway. There’s something fishy about highway construction, isn’t there? Despite almost daily advancements in technology, we’ve yet to develop a solution for the pothole. Even worse, our highway construction crews seem beholden to the long-standing 7:1 supervisor-to-worker-ratio. The result? Traffic logjams like the one I found myself in. I had been mired in the multi-lane logjam for…
  • The Garment the Opposite Sex Can’t Figure Out

    Greg Mischio
    11 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
    The epic battle between the sexes has raged since the day Eve borrowed Adam’s rib and didn’t put it back. To help us men conquer the women-people, I’m fighting fire with fire by inventing the garment the opposite sex can’t figure out. Why are men and women at odds? It all boils down to complexity. Men-people like me prefer to keep things simple. I like Belgian beers and sports. Simple. Women-people like introspection, talking about feelings, and discussing their problems. That’s complicated. Complexity frightens me. It frightens all men, and which is why we agree to the most arduous…

To overcome my poorly-timed and ill-advised words, I’ve taken a page out of the family dog’s book: I will only say one word. We have a Dachshund named Becker. I’ve been carefully observing my four-legged friend/foe over the years, amazed at how he relieves himself everywhere in our house, racks up thousands in vet bills, yet remains near and dear to our hearts. The most amazing thing? The guy only says one word: “Arf!” Becker, do you want a treat? “Arf!” Becker, lay down! “Arf!”…

This particular night he said he wanted something with ramen noodles and water chestnuts. Yup he is an odd ball. But lucky for me google is my best bud and I stumbled upon this website. Didn’t have to read to far (and believe me I didn’t bother continuing to read), I found exactly what I was looking for. This is what the website called for: “Turn your ramen into a stir-fry.

I am not sure if it was because it was just way too up beat for me or if it was merely that the song got on my nerves. Either way I did not care for the song. But then I watched the Lego Movie. In that movie the “average guy” lego was obsessed with the song “Everything is Awesome.” The “lego master” girl that he falls in love with was highly irritated by the…

    I know you guys love when I post my date nights, so I am back to post another one! I will admit this one was a bit lame because money was tight so I am going to add a little section on how I would add to the date if I could do it again. So this date night was centered around the “Lego Movie”. I decided I wanted to do this because my little nephew constantly has references like “where is my pants?” and “Everything is awesome” (be on the look-out for this song in Friday’s blog.) I knew at this point that we had to see the movie and since I knew my…

    The one thing I generally do not do when it comes to cook is try to make up my own recipe. This would be the exception. I had pretty much a whole bag of spinach, left-over chicken (from a buy one get one free sale) and pasta. I knew that somehow this combination needed to be a meal. I looked through Google and Pinterest but could not find a recipe that would not require that I go out and get additional ingredients. Having to do this would defeat the purpose of using the leftovers to make a meal. So I decided to make something up. Here is what I came up with: Lemony Chicken with Spinach: What…

    Across the country, in small towns and large, kids of every age are experiencing a very specific mix of emotions around this time of the year.

The fast food chain started to officially offer its arch-handled boxed creation nationally in 1979, although it was featured in some test markets for a couple years prior. There has been some dispute over who originated the Happy Meal concept—credit has been given to both advertising executive Bob Bernstein as well as to Dick Brams, McDonald’s advertising manager at the time.

    “Give them good food and plenty of it. They’ll come back.” Those were the words of one Luisa Leone during the early days of her restaurant, Mamma Leone’s. For nearly a century, that philosophy helped her restaurant bloom from a 20-seat joint run from her living room into one of New York City’s most iconic eateries. Located in the heart of the Theater District, the restaurant began serving customers in 1906, on the advice of tenor Enrico Caruso. By the time of the grand opening, Mamma Leone’s cooking had become so talked about that customers had to eat on…

  • Crabby Florida Man Gets His Comeuppance

    Dustin
    29 Aug 2014 | 10:43 am
    “Comeuppance” is not only the most enjoyable word in the English language to say, it’s also the most enjoyable thing to watch happen. This week, a crabby Florida man brought joy to millions by getting his comeuppance. According to the Tampa Bay Times, Doug Wilkey does not care for his neighbor’s business. Wilkey has complained multiple times to City Hall that the business is hurting his property value, disturbing the peace and possibly poisoning its customers. Before you decide whose side you’re on in this dispute, it’s important to know that Wilkey is…

    I played soccer and baseball all four years of high school. Although I can’t be certain, I truly believe that if I wasn’t the worst two-sport athlete of all time, I was certainly in the discussion for top 5. People with my skill set are supposed to try Little League for two years, then join the marching band. But a perfect storm of perseverance (stubbornness), undying belief in myself (delusion) and a small high school (He’s a senior, so I guess we have to let him play?) kept me pressing on. I was a terrible high school athlete and am currently an even less athletic adult, so what…

    Every year, Deserae and I try to take a short out-of-town trip to celebrate our anniversary. Two years ago, I planned the best one ever: a weekend at an awesome cabin in Hocking Hills. There would be sweet hikes, hot dogs over the fire, millions of stars, rock climbing – it was going to be the best. The weekend finally arrived, and after Deserae finished packing with five jackets (tomorrow night is supposed to be kind of cool), enough marshmallows to insulate our cabin (you like s’mores, right?) and everything else we own (just in case!), we were off. I was so pumped that I was even able…
  • This Is Summer in Florida

    Dustin
    15 Aug 2014 | 4:56 am
    After an unannounced summer hiatus, Florida Friday is back! You may have wondered what kind of Florida high jinks you’ve been missing all summer. Well, there was plenty of theft, alcohol and nudity (stories like “Naked Men Caught on Camera Stealing Bacon” cover all the bases nicely). Marijuana played a large role (or roll). But for the best picture of Florida life in June, July and August, we turn to the Bradenton Herald, which brought us this headline from the Bayshore Windmill Village trailer park: Bradenton Woman Charged with Battery after Chucking Bowl of Ramen Noodles, Fork at…

    The Life Lessonbook is not usually an angry site. I do not write controversial things about politics or social issues or child discipline. Today, this is an angry site. That’s because last week, I met a genius. It all started about a month ago when my iPhone began randomly heating up to a million degrees and burning through half the battery in 20 minutes. I was a little alarmed the first time my phone turned into a small fireball inside my pocket, but because I am kind of a lazy person, I didn’t do anything about it. After it happened a few times, I tried resetting it, restoring it and…

    1785 saw the beginning of one of Mozart’s more prolific periods. During this time he composed the one act opera Der Schauspieldirektor, a tribute to director Steven Spielberg, after which came a string of his most famous operatic works, including Le nozze di Figaro (“Figaro Has A Giant Schnoz”), and Don Giovanni, based on the life of Miami Vice actor Don Johnson. Mozart found a part-time job in 1787, when he went to work for Emperor Joseph II (named after his father, Joseph I, except with another “I” added) as his chamber composer, which paid just 800…
