Big Bad Shorties

Published on November 13, 2014 By bmagnus

It’s the Food: It turns out that people do pay attention to nutrition labels. That’s a good thing, because soon and very soon obesity will overtake tobacco as the #1 killer of Americans. Have some truth in comic form. Zombies!!: Well sure, they aren’t allowed to try and collect it, but they can still claim you owe it! […]

Only Shorties Left Alive

Ok, I know why some of you are here: to get your sweet sweet dose of NSA links. Turns out not: There’s no shortage of STEM workers. There may, however, be a shortage of STEM workers who want to work for crappy wages. Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me: Which of these inventions is likely to be […]

Music Monday: Wonder How Much Honda Paid for Placement

Published on April 28, 2014 By bmagnus

In Closing: Silly; about time; Korean; War on Drugs; follow the money; low wage jobs; cross that bridge when you get to it, if you dare; and the center.

Music Monday: A little late but better than never

Published on April 21, 2014 By bmagnus

Anybody like to guess what kind of day I’ve had? Why that’s right: A Monday! In Closing: freakin H-1B visas; anybody really shocked to learn this?; limes; open source seeds; bad idea retracted (hello did anybody think this through at all?); interesting idea (although I’d just as soon see one set of massive third party […]

R.I.S.D: Rest In Shorties Department

Published on May 24, 2013 By bmagnus

I Would Watch That!: I have been given permission to share my son’s brilliant idea for a new TV show: he calls it “Law and Order and Batman.” Dumbasses: There are plenty of vegan parents out there who manage not to starve their babies to death. Leia: 20 facts, 20 pictures, one princess. Startling: The amount […]

Quite Possibly the Most Offensive Christmas Song Ever

Published on December 3, 2012 By bmagnus

Don’t play it if you don’t have a sense of humor. Don’t play it if you don’t want to hear “bad words.” You probably shouldn’t play it at work.   In Closing: the choice to fail; the majority of Americans want common sense; tweeting pope; and you thought American banks were bad; on the economy; explaining […]

Music Monday: Old School Redheads

Published on August 20, 2012 By bmagnus

And now for something completely different, a Baroque Concerto for Two Violins by the Red Monk, Antonio Vivaldi. My favorite is the second movement. Sorry about the static video. In Closing: Clearly this was compiled before the weekend political talkies; Siberian Princess; some miscellaneous food items; as someone with experience, I don’t think much of their […]

One heck of a life

Published on July 3, 2012 By bmagnus

Sad news today. Andy Griffith has passed away. Maybe you knew him from television? The man only had two monstrous TV hits and 6 decades of acting credits! What I didn’t realize is that he had a degree in music. Rest in Peace. In Closing: it’s more than a “sex” scandal; the bad idea of a […]

I’ll pass on the candy booze, thanks.

Published on June 6, 2012 By bmagnus

Ok, let’s talk about these damned flavored vodkas. I’m not talking about old fashioned infusions you might find lovingly prepared at better bars, I’m talking about the artificially colored/flavored junk cluttering up the shelves at my local liquor store. It’s getting stupid out there. Many of the fruit ones taste like freakin cough syrup (I’m […]
