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.

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?

Bah Humbug! I hate these %^$@*&^%@$ Holiday Songs!


It’s that time of year again when we get bombarded with holiday music. Here in NYC they started playing it in my local deli that I go to for lunch right after Halloween! It’s gets ridiculous when Christmas is shoved down our throats so early, and seems to get worse and worse every year. Now don’t get me wrong as I do enjoy the holiday season. It just feels way too rushed. Before we know it we will hear Christmas songs right after the 4th of July! I don’t want to sound all “bah humbug” but there are a few that I just can’t stand. Really, some of these make me want to engulf myself in flames and jump off a skyscraper.

Here are my most hated Christmas and holiday songs in no particular wretched order. Continue reading Bah Humbug! I hate these %^$@*&^%@$ Holiday Songs!
