Pitching Names For New Texas Baseball Team

June 1st, 2018 · Tags: Cities · Satire · Sports

  What’s in a name? I know people. And some of those people like to name things … imaginary rock bands and maybe a country band name or two. My most recent, Tire Swing … I digress. One’s name, or brand is important … trying to exalt your name above all names (of your competitors […]

May 23rd, 2018 · Tags: Arts · Cities

This has kind of a down-home feel about it.  A Folk Art video take on what has become a nice museum.

Dallas International Film Festival … The B-I-G Idea

May 9th, 2018 · Tags: Arts · Cities

  If you go to The West Village in Dallas — or “Big D” — you will see these two large, blue (probably concrete) letters that spell out “B_G” … No, it is not a tribute to a falsetto disco group.  The “I” is missing.  But you don’t have to “buy a vowel,” when you […]

GunsUp But Shooting Nikon At Dallas International Film Fest

May 8th, 2018 · Tags: Arts · Cities · Wi-Fi

  It’s time for the annual pilgrimage to Big D for the DIFF, The Dallas International Film Festival … does that make me a film pilgrim?  I digress, (with assonance, I might add) … It’s great fun … and sometimes I actually get to see a film or two, but a lot of the time […]

PingWi-Fi Does Aerial Acrobatics & The SongBird Has Flown

April 19th, 2018 · Tags: Cities · Politics · Satire · Uncategorized · Wi-Fi

  Even my friends who hate motorcycles (and blogs about motorcycles) have probably heard or seen the slogan:  “Loud Pipes Save Lives.” Apparently I needed some louder pipes the other day. A young lady in her SUV caught up with me after following me at a distance for a quarter of a mile — headed […]

Racewalking In Pocatello Idaho With Wi-Fi — Same Same

March 18th, 2018 · Tags: Cities · Coffee Shops · Hotels · Satire · Sports · Uncategorized · Wi-Fi

    It’s one of the more common themes in Sci-Fi — the parallel universe — a place where everything you know exists but everything is different. Ha!   Well, I experienced a little PU in my hotel room the other night in Pocatello, Idaho.  It’s a long story … The disaster team, traveling on […]

Asian Art Exhibited At Superb Wi-Fi Venue — The Kimbell

March 2nd, 2018 · Tags: Arts · Cities · Wi-Fi

When I met the man who compiled a priceless collection of Asian art, I was honored and shook his hand quite formally. When he told me that he bought 60 jade artifacts in a shoebox from a store in Philadelphia for a thousand bucks in the ’70s — including a jade cicada ornament from the […]

Ground Control To Wi-Fi: Ground Cover, It ISS What It ISS

February 25th, 2018 · Tags: Cities · Gadgets · Satire · Wi-Fi

    The incredible preparation for an International Space Station,  an ISS, orbit goes unnoticed by many. First, I set the Mr. Coffee Bro to percolate black magic, precisely 15 minutes ahead of the flight plan over Texas.  After buttering yesterday’s flour tortilla and sticking a space-ready-and-already wrapped banana in my pocket … and of […]

Lipstick Matters, In Vision Quest For Parking Spot

January 24th, 2018 · Tags: Cities · Coffee Shops · Satire

  I get an eye examination and new glasses about every 10 years, whether I need it or not. Ha. Of course the doctors tell us we need to be checked every year. I’ve tried that and guess what, not only do you get a new pair of glasses every year, but the eyes seem […]

Heart Of Dallas Bowl: Utes Down Mountain Men

December 28th, 2017 · Tags: Cities · Sports · Uncategorized · Wi-Fi

“Never give up on your team.”  I preached that to my kids for years, the kids that I coached, or anyone who would listen.  It makes me a little furious when I see fans leaving the stadium before the game ends … even if their team is behind by three scores or whatever. Never give […]
