      “There is more to life than making apparently obvious observations” – Jerry Seinfeld   Before this blog is read, Facebook, Instagram, Google+, etc., will have reworked something new into their social media blueprints for world domination (just when we thought we had this whole thing figured out.)

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 […]

  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.

    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 […]

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 […]

Shake Your Moneymaker: “Process” & Uncanny Coincidence

January 2nd, 2018 · Tags: Arts · Music · Satire

  I had not been awake for long the morning that a text came in telling me that my friend’s new PingWi-Fi t-shirt had been delivered, way way up north in the top of the Texas Panhandle. In my groggy state, it seemed appropriate that I should give him some BS line to make it […]

The Dirty Gig is full of characters … never a dull moment … And Puerto Rico was no different.  Working at the storied El San Juan Hotel in Carolina, Puerto Rico, one of my colleagues supervised a laborer named Ura who just stood out above the others … for his personality and attitude … not […]
