From where the sun now stands, I shall ride no...
It was the late great Kenny Rogers (is he still alive?) who so eloquently crooned, ”You’ve got to know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em, know when to walk away, know when to run”. With this sage advice in mind, I’m quietly setting my motorcycle riding cards face down on the metaphorical table and heading for the exit. I don’t have any horror...
Cabernet Part 1
The man holding up the bunch of late harvet semillon is Paul. He’s the craigslist guy I bought my grapes from. Paul (professional drafter - we’re everywhere) had the clever idea of seeing if anyone else would like to try making wine from actual wine grapes. Several of us craigslist junkies eagerly responded and together the group comprised a substantial enough order to actually...

How to make a pretentious cup of coffee
Step 1: Buy coffee. Freshness is all that counts. Go ahead and buy gourmet whatever if that’s what they’re buying at your country club or if the packaging matches the color of your Lotus. Stale gourmet coffee still tastes stale and fresh cheap coffee still tastes awesome. I bought Top Pot because I heard that Dave Matthews eats donuts there sometimes, and that’s as good a...
I'm on a boat!
Ensign Crusher, engage! That’s me at the helm of a graceful sailing vessel tasting sweet salty freedom on our beloved Puget Sound. As you can see I simultaneously embody both Captain Ahab and the great white whale. What wonderful sights am I gazing at as I stare off into the wide watery unknown? What noble thoughts do I ponder as I steer this ship of adventure? Is that really how fast...
Top 5 MST3K Episodes
5. Crawling Hand This is the first episode I ever saw, and is therefore a sentimental favorite. I stumbled on Mystery Science Theater when I was 11 or 12 visiting my grandparents house. They had acquired one of those old school satellite dishes that gave them dozens of channels (mostly scrambled) scattered across different satellites.
