Extortionist

If you’re looking for the most worthless, low-down, extortive, naked cash grab in the city of Denver, you’ll need to drive way the fuck east where it seems like you shouldn’t be in the city anymore. And here you thought the answer was downtown in those poor sad sack motherfuckers [...]

Radio

Radio

In general, I don’t listen to but one radio station in my hometown, but while on the road, I scan the airwaves. I do this for the same reason I always try to catch a local newscast. Listening to whatever local radio keeps in rotation gives you a good sense [...]

Workout Song of the Moment #3

Workout Song of the Moment #3

Since my fat ass has actually been going to the gym consistently, I’ve had to add several songs to my workout rotation. What will follow is a periodic update of whichever song has given me added juice on the lifting machines or elliptical trainer. Download these yourselves and enjoy. “Hey” [...]

Epicurean

Epicurean

I quit smoking two years ago, and now I actually have taste. It’s annoying as shit. I taste notes and nuances in everything and can discern subtleties that differentiate a dish between something that’s merely good and something that’s exquisite. I finally understand why my college roommate Keith looked forward [...]

Bueller

Bueller

My buddy Jason lent me a Face to Face/Dropkick Murphys split CD, and I was listening to it on my way to work the other day. The Face to Face songs were all decent, but felt like they were from the lesser part of their canon. As I’m pulling into [...]

Siriusly

Siriusly

I cannot fully grasp how Sirius XM satellite radio makes money (it’s possible they don’t and their whole house of cards could come crashing down any minute), but I don’t give a shit. All I know is that I paid for an entire year of service for like a hundred [...]

Murderhouse

Murderhouse

While eating some frozen entrée for lunch the other day that served as mere delivery device for the bottle of Sriracha I keep in my desk, I read this. The story tells of a Pennsylvania woman who sues the previous owners of her house for failing to disclose that one [...]
