Who Are You People

Of all the masterful arguments presented by Alan Shore (James Spader) in the American TV show Boston Legal, his argument in front of the Supreme Court in S04E17 has to be one of the best. Btw, I've been binge-watching the show for the past two weeks, as I've done here and here with other shows. Although I'm … Continue reading Who Are You People

Who Let The Dogs Out

A bit more than a rant this morn, dear worst-reader. Perhaps this is a plea. A plea for mercy and the life of my dog. To begin, above is a letter that I recently received from the property administrator of our flat regarding my dog. Here is a translation of the red enclosed area: "Unfortunately, after numerous warnings, you have … Continue reading Who Let The Dogs Out

Notes From Underhuman

Thoughts this morn about Dostoyevsky's Notes From Underground. I've been enjoying the taste, feel and smell of this 1972 paperback for the past few weeks. I think I acquired it while visiting London in 1995. Obviously it's not dealing with age and dryness but neither am I. Funny thing is, I've already gone through three … Continue reading Notes From Underhuman

The Teuton's Recipe

Visit winding down. Leave tomorrow on latenight flight. First time departing my beloved former home at 20:30 hours. So. With that in mind. Let me try to summarize this visit. I'm confused more than ever about being an expat, visiting (former) home. Even  though I've seen mother several times since August 2014 and death of … Continue reading The Teuton's Recipe

Whoa! History

And now, dear worst-reader, let's take a moment and give a listen to how the other part of the western world's pseudo-democracies are viewing z'Germans. "For the German people and their leader to work out a political strategy that has them encouraging people to think of southern Europeans as lazy and not working and somehow … Continue reading Whoa! History

Protesting My Delusions

The mist of violence has cleared and I'm still pretty angry about thugs and guns and the vulnerability of artists. I'm ashamed to admit it but for the first time since the deadly farce of the western world's war-on-terror, I actually felt a jitter of pro-violence-lust running through my veins as I watched the Charlie Hebdo tragedy … Continue reading Protesting My Delusions

Poor vs Poor

The subtitle of this post is: When Protests Don't Matter. Yes, dear worst-reader, I'm a very negative person. Thank you for asking. Yet. With that said, allow me, behind your back, to (re)define negative. The reality is, negative these days has little to do with the opposite of positive. Besides, it is the same idear when it … Continue reading Poor vs Poor

Plunderful

Take into consideration, dear worst-reader, before you read the link below, that I am from Washington DC. I went to dumb-down school just south of the nations capital and my US address (when I'm in the US) is just east of it. I also lived in Virginia for a short stint of this/my useless-eating life. Boy, do I … Continue reading Plunderful

Wine Mis Advice

Above a label from one of four bottles of "Lisini" 1998 that I have rotting in my kitchen. That's right. They are rotting. Once they were magical bottles of wondrous wine. Then the reality set in. To remind me of what Italian stuck-up wine makers have done to something as simple as wine, these bottles … Continue reading Wine Mis Advice

Highest Hoard

Comparisons. Compare on a daily basis living between countries. What a bore. What a drag. But sometimes a comparison or three is worth it. Especially when I'm visiting "home". Like. Reading the articles below, for example. Couldn't help but think about all the times I've walked around Germaninland in the middle of night only to … Continue reading Highest Hoard
