The Death and Resurrection of Barbaric Music

Saturday, October 23, 2010 19:50 23 Comments

Somehow I missed the death and the funeral. But apparently, smooth jazz passed away in its sleep almost two years ago and it was pronounced dead on the scene. Where was I? Says one critic on PopMatters: I come to bury smooth jazz, not to praise it. The evil that radio formats do lives after [...]

Chevy Volt – The Government’s Car

Saturday, October 23, 2010 6:41 11 Comments

Here is a short but energetic editorial on Investors Business Daily about the Volt fraud at Government Motors. Make sure you look at the photo showing the smiling, phony Bureaucrats and Michigan Monarchs who, thanks to the average Dufus Americanus, can easily turn your enslavement into a fuzzy photo-op. We heard GM’s then-CEO Fritz Henderson [...]

From Mother’s Milk to Wine

Tonight, while enjoying a glass of 2005 Stag’s Leap Cabernet, I spent an abundance of time researching one of my favorite winemakers, Mike “Miljenko” Grgich. Grgich, born in Croatia, is the proprietor and winemaker at Grgich Hills Estate winery in Napa, a place I visited less than two weeks ago as I made my way [...]

Steve Bridges does a pretty fair job of impersonating Obama. Remember that he also did Bush, too.

Tom Brady, Man Up

Monday, October 18, 2010 19:51 7 Comments

Good Lord, every time I hear about Tom Brady’s ‘Justin Bieber’ haircut, I cringe. This is too much for me to take anymore. I’d rather hear yet another recapitulation (version 1,947) of Lindsay Lohan slogging through her daily ordeals as opposed to the incessant narratives about Tom Brady’s revolting haircut. This is just unacceptable for [...]

Big Pharma: Keeping You on Dope

Monday, October 18, 2010 19:05 9 Comments

Ya gotta love the title of this piece in the Pharmaceutical Daily Journal (that’s the Wall Street Journal) titled, “Adding Predictability to Benefits.” That’s a real fuzzy way of saying ‘We are going to do our bloody best to make sure you don’t stop consuming our lucrative products.’ The Pharmacy-benefit manager Express Scripts Inc., just one of [...]

Mies van der Rohe & Detroit

Monday, October 18, 2010 17:15 3 Comments

Last week the New York Times published an interactive feature on the Lafayette Park Residential Community in Detroit which was designed by Mies van der Rohe, the German-American who was among the pioneers of modern architecture. The photos are spectacular. Van der Rohe also designed the 22-story Lafayette Towers Apartments East. Both sit just around the [...]

On “Killing a 12-Year-Old” and Harper Woods

Wednesday, October 13, 2010 19:17 10 Comments

This story has got people in a tizzy just hours after I posted it, so it must be good. Lew Rockwell wants to run it on LewRockwell.com – so tomorrow a modified version will run. People from Harper Woods are gathering to drop comments on my blog. Go ahead, I say, but one commenter blew [...]

Can You Shoot a 12-Year-Old?

For a little over a year, Time magazine has been running “The Detroit Blog,” a special assignment blog dedicated to attempting to write about and understand Detroit. The writers are from Detroit and/or the surrounding area, and mostly, the blog is meant for curious outsiders who think Detroit is a freak show that makes for [...]

Human Hating Nazis

Monday, October 11, 2010 21:46 4 Comments

A video clip from the neo-fascist 10:10 global warming alarmists group has created a wicked stink on the Internet recently with its glorification of assassination for the crime of being a living, breathing human being using some of the earth’s resources. This is some type of a crazed EnviroCommunist activist organization that aims to cut [...]
