Have You Ever Set a 100' Lightning Rod in the Rain at an Ammunition Dump? I Have.

I've done some interesting things. I've built some cool shit, in cool places. I have had some great gigs. I have great stories. This adventure from the mid-seventies was nuts. I worked for a general contractor that did only military contracts. We did… more »

The World Has Changed Again and We're Going Nowhere, Again

I wrote the song in the video below the day we learned that Wakitu had cancer. It was the day the world changed, as did my outlook on the future. We are realists. No matter what comes our way we take a moment and say, "Here we are" and take it from… more »

The 15th Annual "What would you say to your Dad today if you could?" Father's Day Thread

Click here for the lyrics What would you say to your Dad today if you could? For fifteen years I have been asking this question on Father's Day at Fark.com.  I am always amazed at the response. Heartwarming and heartbreaking, it seems cathartic somehow.… more »

A silly thing, but I miss it.

An odd thing happen today. I realized that there is a thing we do that we take for granted and, since the craziness, I haven't been able to do it for a couple of years now. Let me tell you what happened. I'm moving our studio space from one office… more »

Memorial Day Memories, Forever Friends Gone Forever

Memorial Day. What should be, and still is somehow, a solemn day has always been a start of summer thing for me. As a kid we would be going to Granny's for the summer. Upstate, by the lake, in the forest, we spent all our summers there. Later in life,… more »

Bob is down!

If you know me at all you know that my truck is like a beloved pet to me. Like a big ol' pack dog really. I feed it and pet it and make a place for it to sleep. I literally scratch him up under the dash and say "Who's a good boy?" after a particularly… more »

Altitudus Interruptus

We were having such a lovely day. We packed up good stuff and jumped in Mama's truck, cranked up the air and some tunes and headed north. On this trip my phone was set to "avoid highways" and, without peeking, we followed it, turn by turn, over the… more »

Trow It Ovah D'Rail!

OK, we have a new thing. We packed all our dishes into the big, black Anvil wardrobe-trunk slash roadcase, as one does, so they don't break. We decided to just pack ALL the dishes, take 'em to Roscoe and split them up there. We need some at the… more »

I Can't Find My Keys... still.

You know that stupid sliding numbers puzzle that drove you nuts until you just threw it at the wall? That 4-by-4 grid, with 15 numbered slidey thingies, you had to random scramble the numbers, then rearrange them into order by sliding them around… more »

Roscoe and The Mullet.

Well, I have to say, yesterday was an interesting day. We drove up the hill and checked out what may be our new place for a while. We’re calling it Roscoe. It is 20 minutes up the hill from our abandoned antique store lot which we call the Mullet. When… more »

Can You Hear the Thunder

A happy fail. Man plans, God laughs and points. Whadayagonnado? This is the story of the 4x4x4 sessions that turned out to be a 5x1x9 event. (There is a video at the bottom you can listen to while you wade through this if you want. It's a fun read.) more »

Bed Cheese

So, this happened. I am addicted to Tillamook Sharp Cheddar singles. We always have some. Two of those on potato bread and I'm good to go. It's a one-handed lunch. Know what I'm saying? Convenience food, comfort food, good with beer OR wine food. Just… more »

Radio Free Jaguar

I don't know quite why this struck me as such an odd thing. I should have known. A while back we found a deal on a 2005 Jaguar x-type with minimal front-end damage. We put a little money in it and took it on the "Get In the JAG Tour" playing music up… more »

The Power of Tears

My body hates me. I'm allergic to everything and, if it isn't a big enough dose, I collect it until I have enough to ruin my week with a migraine or worse. Then I got Grave's Disease and double-vision, so now I wear an eye patch full time. It sucks. I… more »

Goosebumps from The Magic House

30 years ago a woman planted bulbs around our house. The Magic House we call it; it has a great view and a calmness that heals you. The bulbs grew these tall pink flowers and long green leaves that overflowed out of the middle. I have no idea what they… more »

Tahthedump, Tahthedump, Tahthedump, Dump, Dump.

This is silly but, there is something about going to the dump with your son. It's a ritual by now. We get a trailer full of junk and off we go. The stinky dump with the huge tractors on sheepsfoot wheels climbing over the pile of American over-packaging… more »

Road Trip Music

For the most part you need to prepare yourself for YouTube comments. Internet comments in general are a mixed bag of nice, inspiring, insane, rambling, hateful, hurtful and silly. I have fared fairly well with most of the negativity restrained to the… more »
