Smirking Cynic 2.1

I've been laughing all along, and there is none more serious than I

Worst. Election. Ever.

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 13:26:53 +0000

As some of you know, I’ve been doing my best to avoid the Chernobyl-like levels of political radiation sickness that enveloped me whole back during the early-Dubya years. It wasn’t easy. Much like anything you have an interest for, it’s easy to fall into old habits. But I was pretty happy that I was able … Continue reading Worst. Election. Ever.

Pavlov’s New Dogs

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 16:14:28 +0000

I’m beginning to liken the hardcore second amendment folks with Pavlov’s dogs. But instead of a bell causing them to drool at the thought of food, it’s the NRA saying Democrats want to take their guns away and they froth at the mouth and lose their collective shit. I’ve done my best to stay on … Continue reading Pavlov’s New Dogs

A Father’s Words To His Sons

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 14:24:15 +0000

My sons were born three months premature. Each of them came in just a hair over two pounds each and by the time they came home, each of them already had more extensive surgery than I had. I suppose it was the monumental stress caused by needed procedures and the closeness each of them came … Continue reading A Father’s Words To His Sons

Assuming Game

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 13:30:56 +0000

I’ve done my best to put some distance between myself and the current Presidential election here in the US. Having been fully invested in the 2004 and 2008 campaigns, I saw what it did to my usual easy-going humor and turned me into a nasty little troll on the internets. It affected the way I … Continue reading Assuming Game

Oh, I updated the background again. If you’ve ever searched for “raven” on Pintrest or tumblr, you’ve no doubt seen it. Therefore, finding its original artist has proven to be rather difficult. If anyone knows, hit the comment section.

Into (And Out Of) The Pit

Fri, 27 May 2016 13:39:31 +0000

My daughter is a Netflix junkie. While I’m sure, in her quick and more than likely loud defense, she’d point out that I’m just as bad as she is. My only retort is that, one, we’re talking about her, and two, Netflix junkies probably outnumber the population of Belgium. Seriously. Someone should just make a … Continue reading Into (And Out Of) The Pit

My Personal Music Industry

Wed, 25 May 2016 18:23:18 +0000

When I was younger — back when woolly mammoths walked the glacier fields — I wanted to be musician. I suppose everyone entertained that fantasy at one point or another in their lives, but I was willing to go a step further. I actually purchased guitars and amplifiers and bass guitars and drums for, from … Continue reading My Personal Music Industry

Too Busy To Enjoy It

Sat, 21 May 2016 15:14:45 +0000

We’re now in the final weeks of May, and I’ve been busy trying to keep up with all that is involved with graduating seniors. Perhaps that isn’t the best choice in phasing; more like watching time fly by like the Time Traveller in H G Wells’ The Time Machine when he jumps into the future. … Continue reading Too Busy To Enjoy It

There’s an “aside” feature?

Tue, 17 May 2016 12:40:05 +0000

Sorry, I just noticed this in my admin panel and wanted to see what it did.

Mid-Life Crisis Candidate

Tue, 17 May 2016 12:36:50 +0000

Ever since I was younger I wanted a motorcycle. It wasn’t a need, but more of an passing interest. I have had a long history of those and have been prudent, I think, in if/how I indulge them. Having a motorcycle always took the back seat, so to speak — especially when I had children … Continue reading Mid-Life Crisis Candidate
