old bastard

* I don't play video games

* I don't watch commercial TV. I've never seen "Survivor" or "American Idol."

* I think I watched "Sex and the City" once. Is it just me, or do others think Sarah Jessica Parker has an equine visage--- you know, a horse-face. The people in the show were a lot more neurotic than I am for a lot less reason, so I never watched the show again. That thing is fucked-up.

* I like to watch movies with the sound muted. That way, I can pay better attention to body language and facial expressions. THAT'S acting.

* I've never listened to "rap" or "hip-hop" music in my life and I never will. That ain't music.

* I now tell little girls "NO!" when they try to sell me doughnuts.

* I don't like ANYBODY anymore.

I'm becoming worse every day.


well you're just a cranky old fart ain't ya?

That's am I.

I'm right with acidman! So many ignorant people, not enough bullets!
I like my one friend, he always has dilaudids. NOBODY else.
This might catch on acidman...

I caught a show on Animal Planet last night that you would have just LOVED. A reality show about cat shows. It follows several owners and their show cats through the show circuit. I don't think I've seen a more neurotic group of people and animals in my life.

Come to think of it, I'm not sure if it was a reality show or just a documentary. It doesn't matter was the funniest shit I've seen in a long, long time. You, on the other hand, probably would have shot the tv out of pure disgust.

I don't watch much 'mainstream' tv. Oh...except for Lost, on Wed nights. That's a good show if you ever have a chance to catch it.

You poor man, I feel so sorry for you.
"* I don't like ANYBODY anymore."
Now what are you going to do, go eat some worms? How about if we all paint our toenails bright red for you before coming down to the writers workshop, would ya like us then?

Hell, you're twice my age and I despise that music. I don't think that's an age thing so much as taste. You have it, I have it, rap/hip-hip fans don't.

There are games that let you kill fake people, a lot. I'd imagine that has saved a few real ones from me. I actually remade one continuing enemy figure into an image of my ex-wife. Shooting that bitch over and over (and stomping, knifing, and blowing her up) has done more for my sense of inner peace than bourbon ever could.

Try it.

I'm with you, Rob. Thanks for the insight.

Shit son, hip-hop is ca-ca and you're bright enough to know the difference. Last movie I saw in a theatre was the 1st Harry Potter (with my daughter). "Sex and the City" is "terribly shitty". (To the Democrats) - Y'all want to get porked by random ass-wipes - NOT my problem, nor are your progeny. Video games as opposed to computer games is a no-brainer (I play strategic/tactical wargames and have done so since I got back from Vietnam - NOT the same animal as video games). Reading is FAR preferable to watching the products of the "asshole magnet" - aka, a TV camera. Ted "The Swimmer" is a traitor to the American way of life and government - and Hillary is a lying sack of weasel shit.

Got lucky the 4th day after I came back from my second tour in 'Nam in 1971- and married the woman I'm STILL married to (whom I helped create 2 college students with). (Bet she outlives me - God Bless). So I was never cursed with a "BC" - although life has NEVER been easy for us. I was affected by my tours but the effect seems to be decreasing as I age. Have 8 more years until I retire at age 62.

Wanna go to Costa Rica as you did - but by then the place will probably be over-run with rectums...

Sorry you don't like anybody. But for what it's worth - I like your narratives/opinions/stories.
For the record - I have NO musical ability... The kids do, wish I did.

Live with it.

I are one two! ;)

Thanks for the "miner's strawberries explanation within yer' archives! My old man dug coal in Indiana (Sullivan County) in the 1920's and 1930's ...

SJP ain't been the same since Bruce Willis' character laid the wood to 'er in Striking Distance (1993)...

FWIW ...

Oh - BTW - we have a 14 year old red Min-Pin w/attitude. Cats are "furry hockey pucks".... Useful only as targets. Loyalty is it's own reward.....

I was like that by the time I was 16.

Hey Sara Jessica! Why the long face?

Hey it worked for Kerry.

Did you see the Twilight Zone episode where the guy was making a list of evil people, and at the end he shrunk and was eaten by his parrot? I'm pretty sure that's who I'm turning into.

You turn down doughnuts? What the hell is wrong with you?
