Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of Livermore, I will fear no evil… because there is always Oxnard… (Or): we are now going to have a contest to determine the ugliest name for a town or city anywhere on this planet…

***WARNING: This post requires audience participation… deal with it*** So, I just got back from visiting my mom in the Bay Area. Some of you may have guessed that because I stopped doing posts with pictures in them… except for … Continue reading

Things I learned today… well, not really, but we will get to that later…

When rock bands switch lead singers… let’s discuss…

Yes, this is one of my very early posts, and yes, I have reposted it before… but it is also one of the best stories about a time I almost died… and I have a lot of stories about times I almost died…

You know that, sooner or later, you are going to find one of my amusingly long-winded blog post titles that are really just thinly-veiled attempts to lure you to my blog, to be just silly enough to pique your interest, and you will fall for my blatant shenanigans, even though you are obviously too smart to be taken in by such a cheap ploy, and you will pop over to my blog… you know, just to see if maybe, perhaps, I am anywhere near as funny as I seem to think I am, and then, despite your quite understandable doubts, you will proceed to scroll through some of my posts and read a few things and look at some of my silly Photoshop pictures and maybe listen to a few of my original songs or join in the fun we have in the comment sections, and aginst all your better judgement, you will click the follow button and return again and again and slowly but surely fall in love with me…

So don’t you think you should just get all that out of the way right now?
