Once it’s out ..

While watching the Survivor Series pay-per-view match between Triple H and Ric Flair I found myself caught in the notion that I should by all rights being enjoying the match. Instead, I sat in my chair with a bored expression on my face vaguely wondering if there was any food left. The story line had weeks of careful development. The… (more…)

Over before it really begins

I’m a political sycophant in some ways. I’ll debate politics and policies at the drop of a hat and enjoy myself doing it. Am I excited about this election? Fuck no. Nothing new will happen.
