Choosing Sides

Time for another Wednesday morning thoughts blog. Dogs are walked and fed and I squeezed enough fuel in me to get through Stephanie Miller, a drive in A CAR and then off to get my “mind fix”. For the time being, the more pressing issues that afflict us in the world...

Tuesday Bluesday

My wife was asking about the capability of Nukes from North Korea hitting the West Coast last night and of course I had to answer honestly that…I……don’t…think so? I think we have some crap that can knock it down like “The Iron Giant” or something- take it over the...

Sleep Tight Don’t Let the World News Bite

Just finished my fuel for breakfast meal, as I listen to Big Pharma’s pull on the TV just off from the kitchen. Dems are filibustering, chemical weapons are unleashed in Syria, North Korea is firing ballistic missiles and I have to tuck the kids in tonight! “Sleep...

Lexington On My Mind

One week back from the 2017 Lexington Con in Lexington, KY and I am writing this at the dining table right above three girls who have just awakened from their first sleepover. Bills sit to my left, also awaiting their completion. This is how it is when you return from...

Apple Cider Vinegar and Politics

So somehow the topic of “Jill Stein/Susan Sarandon" came up on Stephanie Miller last Wednesday and I went off on those who wasted their vote on a mythical third party hero. I was ranting on air and Twitter-fighting with my friend Jim off air, in between. It became a...

Cross-Country Pros & the CONS

Sunday Night. On a flight back from Pensacola, FL via Charlotte, NC (Dallas is too weather iffy)  – 10:56 on an antiquated American Airlines Plane in a coveted exit row. Just finished watching “In Like Flynt” and studying a scene for an on camera audition on Tuesday....

A Fascism of Love

Tuesday Morning Stream O ‘ Thought IMAGINE this. A “love fascism” where people can wear what they want and love who they want and John Lennon’s song is pumped through speakers at schools and at work everyday instead of children dutifully reciting words to a premise...

The Battle for Middle Earth

So here we are again on a cold Wednesday morning, and I have to remember to report to animal control a nearby neighbor who has left their dog to sleep outside in 38 degree (or less) weather all night. Yet another reason I feel world peace is untenable. “Good mornings”...

The Beginning of the End

6:39 and twenty one minutes before I take off for “Coffee With Carlos” on Stephanie Miller this AM. Too busy with kids and too despondent to check in on politics as I can see wisps of the earth falling off like glitter on a cheaply made toy. Intermittent sleep allowed...

Before The Kids Are Downstairs

Dogs walked, fed, fruit shake ingredients standing at the ready when the second daughter officially awakens. I don’t want to be the cause, or rather, the blender. Odd how the blender used to be the bane of my stand up comedy existence in badly set up clubs where the...

The 1995 Stardom Train

6:24AM: Two green apple slices, one half banana and a slice of really seedy, grainy bread with peanut butter, week old “fresh squeezed” orange juice from the oranges in the back, and I begin on phase two of the day. Dogs walked and fed, ten minute, stream o’...

Sunday in the Admiral’s Club

Inside The Admiral’s Club near gate 43 at LAX and chatting with a gentleman who just flew into LAX from North Carolina to reach his million mile plateau. Priority for life and he is feeling it. Just an hour ago I was sitting on the couch with my wife and two girls,...

Wednesday Morning Ten Minute Stream of Consciousness

It’s 6:45 on my “toughest” morning – Wednesday AM! The dog alarm went off and got me out of bed, dressed and out the door with the two dogs, around the block, back in, get them some food and water, make myself a quick breakfast and sit down at my lap top to squirt out...
