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 … Continue reading Prepping For In-between Years And New Remotes That Leave Us On Couch
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 … Continue reading Birthday In Pics
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 … Continue reading Ah, The Days Of Padding…
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 … Continue reading Getting Rid Of The Stupid, The (Internal) Ugly, The Disgusting…
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 … Continue reading When Worst Comes To Shove, Worst Always Wins?
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 … Continue reading There Is Nothing Above Or Below, There Is Only Left Or Right
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 … Continue reading That Last Bottle Of Wine Full Of Memories
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 … Continue reading Cruelty To The Awful More More
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 … Continue reading How Much You Don’t Know Can Hurt You (Deep Inside) Forever
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 … Continue reading Inverted Wag The Dog Vs. Inverted-Inverted Illiberalism
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 … Continue reading Learning How Good The Crunge Really Is And Other Songs
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 … Continue reading The Great Scam In Full Bloom. Thanks #Americant.
Robespierre before getting his jaw blown off along with his head. 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. … Continue reading Something Else About Yellow Vests
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.
(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" … Continue reading May Yellow Vests Save Us All And How I Knew Q&A Website Would Suck It
Source: worstwriter iPhone 6s still learning to take pictures Just a little surprised at the size of the packaging for a single paperback. It also took several weeks to get here even though it was sent from a book store in Engaland. Then again, if my expectations of this read turn out to be warranted, … Continue reading Books To Read Delivered Biggly
https://youtu.be/pBsnWr6aeg0It's been a low-water year for the mighty Rhine River, dear worst-reader. FYI, the Rhine River has a special place in my heart. For most of my expat days in Germania, I have lived near the Rhine. Although I consider myself a water person--that is, landlocked places give me the creeps--the Rhine, even if it … Continue reading Going Without Water?
A photograph by worstwriter! While walking Beckett, the killer pug, yesterday and picking up a package from a DHL package station--and boy do I love those package stations on account they mean I don't have to have so many working poor fellows ringing my door bell all the time--I pass by a regional Tesla dealer. … Continue reading Water Pool In Tesla X Spoiler
I'm forever admiring the French. They are the owners of the last GREAT revolution in all of human history. I mean, am I wrong? Or did the French brilliantly get rid of the uselessness of monarchy? Yeah, baby. Make more useless heads roll--I say. And if the heads don't roll, the French still know how … Continue reading If Only #Americants Were Willing To Learn How It’s Done
Screenshot of an email I received. Tech stuff I hate. Where to begin? I hate the fact that any sort of decent to exaggerated information processing is eventually owned by the software that processes it. In other worst-words: I really hate the fact that if/when I create a document in, say, Microsoft Word or Apple … Continue reading Die Flinte Ins Korn Werfen
How unfortunate it is to have such a long path to be grazed, slithered along, perhaps even walked. Ahead is a death defying causeway and not even the death of a former president can make one see it. Yet I remember well, years ago, while visiting my beloved & missed #Americant, watching the television(s), and … Continue reading Giving It A Go! Fight The Fight Dear Hopefuls.
No. Seriously. Dear worst-reader. Get a load of that article title. The word "grift" alone attracted me so much, I put my wine glass down in order to post this response... And get another bottle. And so. Grift Rant on. -T Source: Under No Labels' veneer of bipartisan civility, it's pretty much all about corporate … Continue reading Under No Labels’ veneer of bipartisan civility, it’s pretty much all about corporate grift
It's not only the jealously #Trump has for those who inherit more than he did and then do nothing with it, but the whole of my beloved & missed #Americant are jealous of each and every neighbour, every car (lease) holder, every credit card that is sent out that banks know won't be paid--and that's … Continue reading SNL Mercilessly Mocks Trump’s Jealousy Over The Putin/MBS Bromance And Forgets To Mock Those Who Made Him
And to think all those years where I literally tore my Macs apart to de-dust them... I knew there was something up. And now... I have to be honest. I don't quite know what they mean by "flogging" in this post. Oh well. Rant on. -T The lawsuit claims that Apple is flogging computers and … Continue reading Apple’s Macs quite literally a dirty secret and there need be more lawsuits (I guess)
Authoritarian Shoes? Yes. Authoritarians? No...? First. I'm not selling anything. Seriously. Ok. Maybe I'm selling all–things-worst. Yeah. That's good enough. Second. I've always considered two parts of my body to be more important than other parts: teeth and feet. But don't get me wrong. I don't care if teeth are white and shinny. They just … Continue reading Reading The Footbed
