Prepping For In-between Years And New Remotes That Leave Us On Couch

Tonights playlist with first glass of wine after day full of basement cleaning… Hold a sec. That’s right. That’s how I roll between Xhrist’s birth-death-day and the beginning of yet another worst-year: I clean, at the behest of my better-half, HER friggin’ basement. And not just clean, don’t you know. Indeed. Two car loads of […]

Birthday In Pics

An almost moonlight river cruise… cruising by as I walk Beckett the killer pug. A few hours earlier, walking the same damn useless mut, I was wondering if a river port/harbour lost a buoy. Losing a buoy might not be such an oddity as the river’s been rising like a monster in the last few […]

Ah, The Days Of Padding…

Yeah, I padded a resume once (or thrice). Who didn’t back in the day when the West was still ramping up its globalisation guns and aiming them at the working-stiffs still sucker enough to think the 1990s DotCom boom was gonna bring anything more than a cocktail as departure from (life and) work(force). Hence I’ve […]

Getting Rid Of The Stupid, The (Internal) Ugly, The Disgusting…

Maybe I’m a little confused with all the left-wing information I consume-to-survive. I mean, seriously. It’s so hard for even a rational worst-mind to follow minuscule amounts of right-wing stuff. Especially when that stuff is supposed to be left but in fact is just part of the/a right-wing bubble. So why bother? On the other […]

When Worst Comes To Shove, Worst Always Wins?

Can’t remember exactly when it was. Definitely a few years back. I was shopping around, you know, consuming-to-survive, and there was this DVD set priced real cheap of House of Cards. The original, btw, not the #Americant rip-off. I bought it and ripped it to my home server and never watched one show. A few […]

There Is Nothing Above Or Below, There Is Only Left Or Right

Don’t you love it, dear worst-reader? Don’t you love it when those who think they know try to convince you of their all-knowing with fancy charts and other thingies? Good thing worst-writer is here, eh? I mean, when I try to counter the all-knowing of know-it-alls the only thing you can expect is all-things-worst. But […]

That Last Bottle Of Wine Full Of Memories

Xmas Eve dinners are a big deal in worst-writer’s house. A few people are invited and some of them actually come. Since the kids are all growed-up this is mostly an adult evening. Either that or the kids are with divorcee parents. Nomatter. To begin the occasion, a bottle of champagne is opened and most drink […]

Cruelty To The Awful More More

One of the best opinion pieces I’ve read in a while (see link below). Its only problem? It’s still too nice. The Awful that makes up my beloved & missed #Americant, that has given rise to not just $hitbag #Trump but the rise goes back to the election of a friggin two-bit actor who was […]

How Much You Don’t Know Can Hurt You (Deep Inside) Forever

Disclaimer: This is not a pseudo-review of the movie The Butler and there is only one slight spoiler. My son asked me the other week if I had seen the movie The Butler. I told him I had not. When I asked if he’d seen it, to my surprise he said he had and then […]

Inverted Wag The Dog Vs. Inverted-Inverted Illiberalism

One of the worst things about trying to follow politics, especially follow the joke that is politics in my beloved & missed #Americant, is how so many otherwise rational thinking people lose their $hit when they think there is a light at the end of a tunnel (for their politics) but instead what they are […]

Learning How Good The Crunge Really Is And Other Songs

Potential sub- or alternative title: Oh how pleased I am with current status of (my) audio consumption and still being able to get it on at my age. Yesterday’s evening conduit? It began with a glass of Weißburgunder and a few tunes from greatest-band-ever randomly discharged from my home network wifi to my  2015 MacBook […]

The Great Scam In Full Bloom. Thanks #Americant.

Does it matter that in all my travels, in all my years working for the man, in all those board rooms, sales pitches, project discussions, ex-wives, etc., I’ve never met a person that I look up to, admire or consider to be someone of talent or expertise. This, dear worst-reader, is the hell so many […]

Something Else About Yellow Vests

Here’s a somewhat limited and underachieving-redneck understanding of the French Revolution1. First. While attempting over the years to read this or that about the Revolution, I learned a while back, to my great disappointment, that Marie Antoinette probably never uttered let them eat cake. Instead an author wrote years before the Revolution something like: “Let […]

Story Of Blue M&Ms, Dinner Perfect And Gin

Preparing dinner the other night I got into a worst-photo mode. Lord knows I’ll never quite figure out how these camera-phone-computer-thingies work. But then again, with fresh blue M&Ms direct from NYC… I’m good.  Nomatter.  Rant on.  -T PS The story of blue M&Ms is to come. Maybe.

May Yellow Vests Save Us All And How I Knew Q&A Website Would Suck It

(Deep breath:) What’s wrong with journalism is not the fakeness or the fake-newz but how it simply gets things wrong on account those practicing it (journalism) aren’t really journalist but if they are they are journalists of a new era where journalism isn’t the same as it used to be because now those who pay “journalists” […]
