Punching 2019 in the face: Summer bleeds into fall

Last time I posted one of these was back in July. The whole summer was kind of a whirlwind. I don't remember anything about it except that everything revolved around getting my daughter set up to start college and also trying to make the most of family time somehow in a weird transitional time when...

Slayer: Raining…Jazz?

Some guy rewrote Slayer's iconic Raining Blood as a jazz tune and synchronized it with a live performance...and it might be the most awesome thing I've ever seen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7-aduHx5bo I've been watching and rewatching this for hours now.

A baptism of stains

Imagine something with me, if you will. Visualize a gigantic crowd -- a great big festival, let's say. A modern version of the World's Fairs that were held in more innocent times.

Plantation evacuation

They hide behind bureaucracy, behind jobs that nobody can find who they are." "We're waking up. That’s why these guys are panicking. The black community is leaving the plantation. We’re...

Punching 2019 in the face: Let’s forget June ever happened

Okay, June wasn't *that* bad. It wasn't an easy month either, though. And I need to get back into the blogging groove because I intended for this site to be useful in the future, and it won't be if nobody visits.
