The World According to Mooch

I didn’t get to write about former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, because his 11-day reign as the Eye of the White House press shit-storm was so brief. I wanted to say that he was the only person appointed by President Trump that I actually liked; not because I…

Not You Too, Roomba

We finally got some good news in regards to climate change this week: North Korea once again launched an intercontinental ballistic missile that reached a height of 2,314 miles and traveled 620 miles before landing in the Sea of Japan. According to North Korea’s Korean Central News Agency, the missile…

Get Back to Work, Slackers

There are few things more joyous than hiding from work. Your boss is a slave driver, always demanding more work for the same pay. It’s just not fair! The only way to even things out is to come in a little late, leave a little early or hide somewhere in…

Below the Surface

I see what your game is here, Mother Nature, and I think you have made your point. All winter long, the rains poured down to refill California’s rivers, lakes and reservoirs until, in some cases at least, the dams were literally bursting at the seams. The rain caused sides of…

Bawitdawhatever

So I started off this morning reading a fancy bit of nerd news in the Los Angeles Times stating that Jodie Whittaker has been cast as the first-ever female Dr. Who. I should let it be known that Dr. Who is one segment of nerd fandom that I don’t consider…

A Decade of Looking Down

While doing my frantic, bi-weekly Google News search trying to figure out what to write about this time (and doing my best to turn a blind eye to President Trump’s Twitter controversy du jour (because there will be 14 more until next we meet, so really, what’s the point?)), I…

Out of Commission

What would you do if you woke up tomorrow and found that your phone had stopped working? You might have left it on the roof of your car when you drove off and it smashed in the street, or perhaps you dropped it in the toilet; the point is, your…

The Circle of Life

I’ve never stepped foot inside of a Whole Foods. However, that doesn’t preclude me from having strong opinions about it, all of which are harsh and baseless. You might think that makes me a bad person, and you may very well be correct. And hey, maybe I’ve been missing out…

Agent Orange

Something is definitely amiss. This whole Trump/Russia thing is not going away for the president and it seems only to get worse by the day. The entire country is waiting with baited breath to find out if Trump and Vladimir Putin are conspiring to destroy the United States. It certainly…

What’s the Sound of One Star Dying?

I need to take a break from my regularly scheduled doomsaying. Look, you’ve been reading the news … or maybe it’s better to say you’ve been absorbing it. It’s kind of impossible to escape the news anymore, considering how plugged in we all are all the time. It’s all covfefe…
