I don’t consider myself to be an exceptional man. Really, I don’t. I’m a middle-aged, middle-class wage slave and suburban dad. I feel that if I can do something, anything really, it must not be THAT hard to do, and that anyone could do it. Except…the more I see of other people – my contemporaries […]Read more "An Exceptional Man?"
I rarely watch live television anymore. Most of what I watch is on one of the streaming services, and I binge-watch the crap outta things. That being said, I have two weeks while my family is on vacation, and I’ve had the tv on…and I’m totally not used to watching commercials.

Well…the […]Read more "We Fail at Olympics"

Well, my tag experiment was an utter failure. After 24 hours, my last post has received exactly zero looks. I guess people aren’t looking for outright, utter filthy sleaze. Maybe I should load the next one with softcore tags — I actually have long thought that Americans are constantly on the hunt to *almost* see […]Read more "Tag Experiment I – Results"
