All Wrong by God Lives Underwater

tcr! · Apr 22, 2018 at 1:31 pm

Peeps, here’s your here-i-am-my-anger-and-me Sunday jam. God Lives Underwater were popular with me in the 90s, right about the time I was married to Kathy and angry for no good reason.

Here I am my anger and me
Temper makes it hard to see
This situation I’m in again
Everything must come to an end now

It’s funny how songs come along right when you need them, when they echo sentiments that ring true for that given era.

You can’t go wrong with the second album, Empty. It’s all good and similar in style to All Wrong. Definitely listen to No More Love.

It’s too bad that singer David Reilly suffered from a heroin addiction and then died in 2005. 😞

Beard and mustache

Sometimes I think about shaving the beard and just keeping the mustache.

But I think the only people that would like it would be me and Burt Reynolds.

You could always try it and if you don’t like it it’ll grow back soon enough

I’ve never had just a mustache so it wouldn’t be like I was trying to recapture my 70s youth or something.

A little dog and wild carrots

tcr! · Apr 20, 2018 at 7:24 pm

Audio (MP3): 20180420 - A little dog and wild carrots

Let me first say that I’m an animal lover as much as the next Dr. Doolittle. It’s rare that I meet a dog or cat and they don’t end up liking me sooner or later. I think mostly that’s because I don’t care if they like me or not.

However, the neighbor’s dog and myself, we don’t get along. He barks at me from his yard every time I’m outside in my yard. Or when I’m walking to or from my garage. Bark, bark, bark.

Obviously he’s got the short man complex.

I’ve tried making friends with him. I’ve tried explaining to him that I’ve lived here longer than he has and that gives me seniority. And on my very worst days I’ll blow my megaphone at him when he so much as lets out a whimper.

So anyways, a little while ago I was out tending my yard and little Napoleon was in his house so all was right with the world. The neighborhood people were also out walking their dogs up and down the alley as they do. And every time they did I heard him barking from inside his house.

I was thinking to myself how annoyed I get just even hearing him bark every now and then. Can imagine the horror of actually living with him relentlessly barking all the eff’ing time? I thought so.

I could only giggle quietly to myself.


Queen Annes Lace roots

In other news, does anybody know what kind of plant these are?

Some of the taproots are almost as big as carrots. It looks kinda like a dainty fern and it’s soft as a feather. It’s also decided to take over the world. Well, take over my backyard anyway.

Update: they’re Queen Anne’s Lace. Apparently a couple of summers ago I did, in fact, let them take over the world.

I don’t have the issue with the Queen Annes Lace, however I do have the issue of the non-stop barking from the neighbor’s dog. It is a small dog that I could quite easily drop kick through the air across the yard and into never never land. ( I would never have such evil thoughts wink wink) Its very frustrating because during the warmer months I spend the majority of my time at home outside working in my backyard. I have done everything from ignoring the animal, attempting to bribe it (I almost got bitten), throwing small sticks to distract it, to messaging the offending neighbor via messenger, Other people in the neighborhood have called the police and reported them. This worked for them because now the dog is no longer allowed in the front yard only the back which is where I hang out. None of these methods work for me and finally one night last week I screamed “SHUT THE FUCK UP” and low and behold the neighbor appeared immediately and brought the offending animal inside. Finally a method that works. I will continue to do this until it doesn’t. Funny thing is she locked the dog in the basement last night where it barked incessantly but at a tolerable level for me. Not so tolerable for her however because I could hear her cussing inside the house. Tee hee motherfucker :) Love you Travy funny how we have similar problems eh :) - AJC

I was listening to Fresh Air on WBEZ a few minutes ago and they replayed Terry Gross’ interview with Harry Anderson. It was from 1998 I think. I looked for the audio but didn’t have any luck.

Anyways, I lost my interest in magic, cards, and picking locks right around puberty but I’ve always admired Harry Anderson. He was humble, confident, and funny. Most of all I think he was sincere. All the things I hope I am today.

I also like that he was a con man who got a part on Cheers by being who he was and not by being an actor, or somebody who he wasn’t.


Update: here’s the audio and transcript:
Before He Became The ‘Night Court’ Judge, Harry Anderson Was A Con-Man Magician

First flowers of 2018

tcr! · Apr 20, 2018 at 10:38 am

little scilla blooming

These little scilla were always hidden under the bushes until I trimmed them up last year. Maybe they’ll spread around now. And I’m always grateful when color comes back to the yard, to the world.

In related news, being a cynic doesn’t appeal to me much these days.

Happy Friday, peeps!

Refillable Plastic Wrap Dispenser with Slide Cutter

This plastic wrap dispenser will seriously be one of the best things you ever spend your money on.

Before I’d have yards pulled out with the wrap only clinging to itself.

Look for it on Amazon: Refillable Plastic Wrap Dispenser/Slide Cutter →
