On the horror of reality

When I was in grade-eight I went to the Red Rock Theater on Charleston... ...by myself and bought a ticket for Rescuers Down Under with the full intention of walking into the theatre showing Total Recall . I won't tell you that this film changed my life, but there was a practical effect costume of a woman with three boobs . Okay. It changed my life. Thank you, John Carpenter. This led to finding David Cronenberg which led to a near obsession with splatter-fest horror flicks. I can’t count the number of times I’ve watched the whole Troma catalog up to 1999. Buckets of blood, check! Gratuitous violence, check! Terribly beautiful practical effects and costumes, check! Playing for $2 at midnight, check! The Night Birds, wrote a great song about this: Lyrics , if you’re interested. And, if you want to see what it’s like to play your heart out to a bunch of punks who are too cool to be a part of the art, watch th

On our President and my son on Owen’s 17th birthday.

This is our President, mocking a person with a disability not unlike the disabilities my child has. This was a strategy used during the primary and campaign which helped Donald J. Trump win the 2016 election. Well, that and the fact that the DNC has an innate ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Side note: having someone else wipe your ass seems like it's the primary qualification to run a Fortune 500 company; well that and an MBA from Columbia, or is that redundant? I'm telling you, Owen could do this. But I digress.

Stop Voting for White Men...

...start voting for anyone else. In 2016 I made myself a promise. Inspired by the clowns from the American's for Tax Reform who pledge to vote against any new taxes, I pledged to not vote for any white male politicians. In 2016 I stuck to my pledge and was pleased with Nevada's 2016 election results . Nevada's 2018 gubernatorial election provided voters with this broad range of choices: ...I broke my pledge and voted for Steve Sisolak. As a reminder of why sticking to this pledge is critical, here's how Stevo repaid my vote: Goddamnit! Thanks, Steve. I won't break the pledge again. I promise. Stop voting for white men. Start voting for anyone else. /g 1 Blog 3 Goals: 1. A Constitutional amendment overturning Citizen's United | 2. Abolish the Electoral College | 3. Reinstate Glass-Steagall. We. Can. Do. This.
