You just can’t fix stupid, and more blogging nonsense in NYC!

 

seriously-are-you-qzkdya

Wait, where have all these blog posts come from? The madness of my mind surprises even myself at times.

Lately, I have not had a lot of time to keep up on my blogging adventures. Little things such as everyday life kind of get in the way. Earning a living, family dealings, going outside and actually having a life, etc. It sometimes gets kind of hard to keep up on things. So I apologize to my readers out there if my postings have been sporadic at best, and commenting back has been hit or miss. Things have calmed down a bit and I will be dropping by to see what you all are up to very soon. In the meantime, I just want to offer a big thanks to all that have stayed with me along the way through all of my gluttonous meals, drunken exploits, and rantings of NYC craziness.

I just happened to take a peek at my WordPress stats and tools to see what has been going on. The spam filter is working and caught a bunch of junk, I had a few plug-ins to update, and then I noticed one big thing that caught my eye. I had hit 400 blog posts! Holy crap when did that happen? Now, I know it’s not a huge number to many bloggers out there who seemingly have a ton of time to post something almost every day, but to me that’s something to celebrate a bit. I remember when I started this mess of a blog I had no clue what I was doing. I had a vision of the niche I wanted to develop for myself and it had to be unique. After all, you don’t find too many male bloggers out there with a lifestyle, food, and humor blog all rolled into one. Along with the 400 posts are also thousands of comments that have accumulated along the way. Again, I thank all who have read and commented. I am humbled that some actually enjoy this mindless babble.

Hopefully, I can hit the next 100 posts and people will still like what I am doing here. Even if I will need to post shots of myself in assless chaps, or pics of my junk to keep your attention. This fame whore will earn it, baby! Continue reading You just can’t fix stupid, and more blogging nonsense in NYC!

The Times They Are A-Changin’ in NYC and Across the Land

It’s been quite a week here in NYC and across the good ol’ USA, right?

As Bob Dylan wrote and sang so many years ago  – The Times They Are A-Changin’. Those lyrics are so appropriate for what has been happening lately. Especially in light of the Supreme Court’s decision which now legalizes gay marriage across all 50 United States. Now, as many of you know, I never, ever like to really discuss politics and religion unless it’s to poke fun. Most politicians are idiots no matter what party they are in anyway, so they are an easy target. I’m not an overly religious person to begin with. To me, it’s an evil subject matter, unless you pen a blog or column devoted to them. Then more power to you. I just see both as a subject that causes more pain, anger, and arguments than any other across the globe. So I usually steer clear.

Yet, when it comes to this I feel different. I feel as if this is a momentous decision, and one that has such a profound affect on not just this country, but the world. I want to write about it. There has been a shift in humanity. A shift in reasoning. A cause for celebration. After all, more than for political or religious reasons this is a human rights decision. One that should have been made long ago. I have always said “Live and Let Live”. It still boggles me as to why so many people get so uptight and freaked out over two people of the same sex marrying. Who cares? They aren’t hurting anyone. They aren’t hurting you. They want love, compassion, and happiness just like anyone else. No matter who they sleep with, live with, kiss, or hold hands with. No matter what a legally binding piece of paper says with their names on it. Gay or straight don’t we all want the same thing? To be happy and live in peace?

Fleet Week, Letterman, NYC News, and $30 hot dogs.

Sometimes you read and come across some strange things during the course of the week.

I just read a news article about a hot dog vendor here in NYC that is selling those dirty water dogs along with hot pretzels for $30. Yes – thirty freaking dollars! Are you kidding me? Now, I can see paying maybe $2 for one of those belly bombers but this insane. Obviously, he is feasting upon visitors from overseas that know no better, and even though I’m not a huge fan of most annoying tourists, along with the bridge and tunnel suburbanite crowd that piles into the city on the weekends, even I would put a stop to this jerk if I saw him trying to rip off someone like this. Heck, even I have a bit of ethics in me believe it or not. Maybe sell it for $10…….

Another thing I read today was the story of how a girl’s sweet 16 party was bombarded by flying poop out of the sky! The family and friends were having a get together for her big birthday when feces just came out of the heavens and rained down upon them. They are assuming it was from a plane that had passed and somehow unloaded it’s crapper. Now, my mom and older relatives would always say it’s good luck when a bird poops on you, but I wonder if that would also hold true if big ‘ol Billy Bob dumped his bowels on your head from way up high?

Snow, Selfies, Fires, Sniffing Glue – Another Week in NYC!

As I am sitting here in my favorite coffee shop on the Upper East Side on this cold and blustery NYC morning I’m looking out the window and pondering the sweet mysteries of life. Most notably right now I’m watching the wind blow around the snow flurries that are coming down. Snow! God damn snow! It’s supposed to be Spring dammit! Go away Winter, enough already. I’ll be the first to admit I do like the colder dry air of the winter season but this is getting on my last nerve. All I ask for now is a few days of sunny weather in the 50’s at this point. Is that asking too much? Oh great, now it’s really coming down. It looks like we’re inside a giant snow globe. It’s 33 and snowing out yet there are some idiots walking by wearing shorts. People here are getting so pissed off at the weather they are rebelling. That’s all cool as I’m kind of like that too, but I’m not dumb enough to go out and catch pneumonia. As they saying goes, I might be dumb but I ain’t stupid! Continue reading Snow, Selfies, Fires, Sniffing Glue – Another Week in NYC!
