Breaking the Silence

The internet is abuzz with clips and quotes from Monica Lewinsky once again almost 16 years after her scandalous affair with President Clinton dominated the headlines. Ms. Lewinsky has broken her silence to say that “Sure, my boss took advantage of me, but I will always remain firm on this point: it was a consensual relationship.” […]

Used To…

I used to update this a lot. Now I just take pictures of boats at night. Sometimes. Or maybe other stuff. But that’s not art anyway. We all know that art is just paintings of horses. This used to be the home of the ridiculous, or the entertaining, or even the ridiculously entertaining. I need […]

Sex & Entertainment

I know I’m very late to the party when it comes to Game of Thrones. I’ve seen various articles, sketches, gag headlines, etc., that play on the show’s portrayal of sex scenes (to put it lightly).

Photo of the Day

A Fox news station in St. Louis covered a No Pants MetroLink Ride back in January. Now I only just saw this yesterday when it showed up as a side headline on some other story I was reading. I always assume that those side links are current, but quite often that are pretty old. Anyway, […]

Tired of “Februany”, Bring Back Smarch!

Subway, can we please stop with this ‘Februany’ crap? I can’t go another 11 days seeing that garbage on TV. Ndamukong Suh stomps on heads, but we’re expected to believe that he giggles like a little school girl while trying to say a stupid word like ‘Februany’? Really? The commercial would be more believable if […]

Push-Up Project: Day Three

Went with a new strategy: sets of 10 push ups with 10 seconds rest. I was up against it at the end: sitting at 80 push ups with only 16 seconds left, I powered through for a final set of 14. I know that’s a lot of math there, but here’s what it all means: […]
