Roll out the barrels and strike up the band, Murphy’s Bye-Laws has opened its new facility.  Like coming to WordPress.com was a step up for me, so moving to my own hosted site is another step up.  So be sure to change your bookmarks and feeds to the new site at www.pintofstout.me.(image)

Selected Posts From Obscurity III: 2007 BygonePintofStout

Wed, 04 Feb 2009 22:17:16 +0000

The previous two times I put together the compilation posts (found here and here) I never covered a whole year.  This time it is different in that I was able to include a whole year – a calendar year, no less!  The following are posts from 2007 (listed chronologically) that I feel are some of […](image)

Happy New Year, all!  In the past, I have done the blogging equivalent to the flashback episode or the live album by posting some of the better posts from the past.  I always had to wait until sufficient time had passed to lessen my own biases, since I was the only one picking them.  Now […](image)

The Rocky BottomPintofStout

Wed, 31 Dec 2008 17:55:11 +0000

As the holiday season prepares to go out with a bang this evening, I’d like to reflect on thoughts I’ve had while catching up with old friends and acquaintances.  This year has found me with a full social schedule over the past two weeks meeting with prodigal friends returning home temporarily or carving out some […](image)

Warts and AllPintofStout

Fri, 19 Dec 2008 18:32:02 +0000

Recently, I’ve written about the inflexible world of corporate employment.  The confining job descriptions and bureaucracy are prescriptions for career quagmire and a near-certain soul death.  The ridiculous hoops one may jump through to even get into a position in cogdom are just as soul-constricting.  A certain blandness and unwavering nothingness is almost required these […](image)

Plaxico Burress is Not a CriminalPintofStout

Sat, 06 Dec 2008 04:06:06 +0000

If anyone has been within 100 feet of a newspaper, television, or radio wherein professional football is discussed they probably know the story of Plaxico Burress, the New York Giants and former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver who shot himself in the leg with his unregistered handgun last week.  Much of the talk revolves around whether […](image)

The Bye-Laws’ Holiday Survival GuidePintofStout

Thu, 04 Dec 2008 22:25:15 +0000

It may seems to the casual observer that the general stress level of the population rises dramatically with the consumption of the last morsel of pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving.  No doubt a day with the moniker of “Black Friday” doesn’t imply joyful afterglow.  This sudden thrusting of consumer obligation and manufactured joy onto the recently […](image)

This Is My Gun (Part 2: Target Biology)PintofStout

Wed, 12 Nov 2008 20:14:57 +0000

A long time ago I wrote a blog post exploring the nature of weapons and the basic mechanics behind them. I called it Part 1: Physics without immediate intentions of doing a part 2. Part 2 was loosely intending to discuss, not the physical transfer of energy to the target, but the purpose and effects […](image)

A Chorus of ConformityPintofStout

Fri, 07 Nov 2008 16:21:28 +0000

The elections season is finally over.  No court battles.  No Recounts.  No Controversy.  The corporate consumption mechanism has the airwaves back to plant their ideas in your brain.  The election is over and the people’s voices were heard…or were they? When it is said that someone’s voice is heard, isn’t it usually referring to the […](image)

Working Ourselves Poor (Now with DVD Extras!)PintofStout

Thu, 30 Oct 2008 14:34:57 +0000

There are phrases like “the working poor” floating around. This refers to the people who are actually employed, sometimes in more than one job, who still can’t afford housing, food, and other tenets of the American dream. Perhaps this state of affairs is due to the cost of actually going to work. In the past […](image)
