All Things Considered

Elaine Paige – “All Things Considered” Love you must know I tried All of this time A long weary climb But oh my hands were tied Nothing to hold I’m out in the cold Strange to see our future fall into the past Too good to last But oh the times we had All things […]

On the CD player

Linda Eder – “Unusual Way (From “Nine”)” Music & Lyrics by Maury Yeston Orchestrations & Arrangements: Jeremy Roberts In a very unusual way One time I needed you In a very unusual way You were my friend Maybe it lasted a day Maybe it lasted an hour But somehow it will never end In a […]

Facing Mortality

The past three weeks have brought two weddings and a funeral into my life. I’ve come to realize that I’m destined to life out my life as a very solitary man, and probably not remembered by many. Thanks to the conservatism of the United States, chances are I’ll never have a wedding of my own […]

Sometimes

…it’s just best not to ask. This tune has haunted me all week. Agnetha Faltskog – If i thought you’d ever change your mind I would bring you flowers in the morning wild roses as the sun begins to shine sweet perfume in tiny jewelled caskets if I thought you’d ever change your mind I […]

So long…

Thought of the day

For want of a nail the shoe was lost. For want of a shoe the horse was lost. For want of a horse the rider was lost. For want of a rider the message was lost. For want of the message the battle was lost. For want of a battle the kingdom was lost. And […]

Frickin Asshat Legistators

Guess it’s time for me to move out of State. Virginia is getting around to finally codifying discrimination. Look f*cktards. I pay taxes, I pay your frickin’ salary. I do NOT need you dictating my moral standards, thank you very much. I personally feel that two people of ANY gender, in a loving, caring relationship, […]

To Hell with the little guy.

Maybe I’m considered lucky because I can afford my place to live, and have two other people living with me that also have decent (but not good) incomes. What about those that are less fortunate? Well, to one developer in Virginia Beach, the attitude is “to hell with the little guy.” This excerpt is from […]

Major Disconnect

Lots of things going through my mind, none of which connect with weach other or make any sort of coherent sense. (1) Pay toilets. Maybe I’m putting an age on myself, but does anyone remember them? Hell, I remember as recent as 1980, Montgomery Wards still had them, and if you had to go, it […]

They’re Trying To Get Smarter

Spammers, that is. Now, instead of leaving posts, they’re doing “trackbacks”. I had 248 of them to delete this morning (since everything is moderated, it had to go through me in the first place). Makes me almost wanna hang up the ol’ bloghat for good. Bad enough I get over 500 pieces of span in […]
