  • Freedom

    As a new year arrives, most of us reflect on the past year and hope this coming year will be better than the last. We like to think we have the power to free ourselves from our past. In some respects we do, but what exactly is freedom? Freedom means different things to different people.…

  • One Final Fuck You From 2023

    Am I ever happy to see a year end. Not that I like getting older, my ass hurts from the pounding 2022 and 2023 gave me. I get a wonderful gift in the mail. As with all garments, I wash them before wearing them. I just don’t trust manufacturers anymore. I throw everything in the…

  • Fucking Fucked

    To quote a Muse song by the same name, “We are fucking fucked.” For the past five years, I’ve thought this next year couldn’t get any worse. I’ve been wrong every single fucking year. 2020 can’t be any worse than 2019… Wrong! 2023 is our year! Wrong! I thought 2016 was bad when I got…

  • Starting a Business Surrounded by Chaos

    Starting a business is easy. Doing it successfully? Now, that’s difficult. It’s difficult enough to create a successful business during the best of economic and personal times. Doing it in the middle of a questionable (at best) economy and in the middle of a chaotic personal time seems almost impossible, but that is what I…

  • Trying to Figure it Out

    When I was in my thirties, people told me I should write a book. They never really said why or about what. They just listened to a story from my past and would sit there in disbelief. I did write a book; I wrote three. Ten years ago, I thought I had everything figured out.…

  • Multiple Streaming and my Brain

    People might think it is odd, but sometimes, I don’t know what I’m thinking. I have a flow of thoughts in which many thoughts flow at the same time. Sometimes, I go back and forth between thoughts when a third thought comes into play. It’s like watching TV with two or three picture-in-picture boxes. If…

  • Only the Good…

    Billy Joel had a song in the late 1970s called “Only the Good Die Young.” It reminds me of my current predicament and why there is such a large gap between the sentiment within this country and what the people in power tell us. I try to do what is right. I try to help…

  • Life Lyrics

    Music means different things to different people. Some of us have songs that cut deep into our souls, leaving a scar that can be good or bad. Today, I was/am angry. Why? Because everyone expects everything from me. When I try to get some peace so I can exhale, I’m trampled with distractions. People do…

  • Assumptions and Idiots

    Generally, I think people are fucking idiots, especially today. It is amazing how little people know despite the massive amount of data available to us. Back when I was a kid, the internet was something very few people had access to. Encyclopedias were something that only the library and rich people had. When my parents…

  • We Might Need RI (Real Intelligence)

    Like every intelligent person that has seen Terminator 2: Judgement Day, I am skeptical of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Am I super scared that AI will infect robots and learn how to build an army? Not really, but the possibility is not zero. It seems like all we hear about today is Elon Musk, Tucker Carlson,…
