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.

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 […]

Pesky Government Regulations: Saved lives. A question of scale: Nope, not toys. It does make you wonder how big a quake caused this. Tell me why we do this every Spring and Fall again: Not even cows like Daylight Savings Time. They say they want to save money, then they prevent us from doing it: […]

Today I was forwarded a hilarious item called “Classes for Women at the Adult Learning Center.” In it were such gems as the following: Up in Winter, Down in Summer – How to Adjust a Thermostat Is It Possible To Drive Past a Wal-Mart Without Stopping? Fundamental Differences Between a Purse and a Suitcase–Pictures and […]

I’m going to start by saying the only thing I intend to say about politics today: if are an American adult and you didn’t vote in Tuesday’s elections, I have no desire to hear any of your opinions about politics, the law, or the economy. You had your opportunity to make your voice known,  even […]
