*Before Sunset in LA

On recommendation from a film buff I stream Before (not Beyond) Sunset. It’s horrible. A little.   Anyway, predicting the sex scene to come (so maybe it gets better) I hit pause and go for a whiz. I decide to hit the 1/2 spliff that I had left on the glass table outside my door. In…

Be a Mean Fucking Fighter Jet

Total click-bait, I know. Sneaky, I’m not. But, shit–it’s the internet age. You have to practically slam people into oncoming traffic to get them to pay attention. Even to themselves. Especially to themselves. I won’t disguise this one in metaphor. The worst thing you can possibly do–and that which you do incessantly–is to poop all…
