LOCKN' 2016: Phil & Friends details, Chatting with Pete Shapiro, Garcia's Forest and More!
Nothing is really more spiritual than the first time listening through Terrapin, and that’s just how the gooball melts.   I gotta say though, I felt that same hopeful way  when I found out about the Grateful Dead reunion shows last year with Trey, and hands-down am even more excited about this upcoming LOCKN‘.  The...

Top 6 Randys of TV and Cinema

<strong>#6 Randy "The Macho Man" Savage</strong><br><br> Not only is he a randy savage, but he is also a macho man on top of that. <br><br>Mr. Savage was a household name in the early 90's and It's fair to say that every male between the ages of 25 and 36 has imitated the Macho Man in one way or another- possibly with a flying elbow, an "Oooh Oooh yee--uh", a "Snap into a Slim Jim!" or pointing to your cheek where you want the Lovely Elizabeth to kiss you. In a world filled with randy savages, he was truly a macho man.
While Randy is a pretty common name here in the States it is rarely used for TV and movie characters. It’s possible that producers avoid the name for fear it will alienate British audiences since Randy means something like “amorous” or “frisky” over there, or maybe they avoid naming anyone else Randy because they know...

Top 4 Vins in America

<strong>#4 Vin Diesel</strong><br><br> Even though his real name is Mark Sinclair, I still felt he earned a spot on this list.  It may also be worth noting that every Vin I could think of made this list.
How many Vins can you name? Not a Vince, Vincent or Vint, but Vin. I was able to come up with only four, so I ranked them.

11 Things Republicans Love the Most

11. Israel <br><br> Republicans LOVE them some Israel. They aren't sure why, since Republicans trust only fellow Christians. But they know that whoever writes their talking points likes Israel for some reason, so they fall in line.
Republicans get a bad rap in the mainstream media. They are branded as “The Party of No”, or the bigoted party, or the party of out of touch old white guys who look out for their best interests. But they are so much more than just a party of negative people. Here is a list... Read more »

6 Reasons Conservatives are Hypocrites to NOT Support Ferguson Protests

Conservatives Love The Constitution <br><br> Some conservative pundits assert that the Constitution was written by  their God, one tea party candidate painted a likeness of the Constitution on the side of her campaign bus, and several others state that the president is, "shredding the constitution", when they disagree with his policies. So it stands to reason they take enforcing the laws and freedoms in it very seriously.

<br><br> With that in mind, the First Amendment to the Constitution states: <br><br>
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people to peaceably assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.". <br><br>  What the Ferguson protestors are doing is exactly what democracy looks like in action as guaranteed by the First Amendment of the US Constitution. Inexplicably, a majority of conservatives oppose the protests in Ferguson.<br><br>For a conservative to oppose such activities would be like if someone claimed to be the biggest Shakespeare fan in the world, but then loudly opposed a local theater troupe staging a performance of Hamlet.
It’s unreasonable to expect others to agree with you about everything, all you can reasonably ask for is that the other person is consistent in their beliefs. Baseball is a great example of this. A manager doesn’t expect every ball or strike call by the umpire to go his way, he just wants the umpire... Read more »

4 Things I Remember About Playing on a Youth Soccer Team With USMNT Defender DaMarcus Beasley

When I was in 8th grade, my longtime friend Stuart invited me to be on his indoor soccer rec league team. Stuart was a friend since 2nd... Read more »

Creeping the 'tute Part two(t)
On my 34th birthday I did what any normal 34 year old does on their birthday. Namely, take their softball trophy (the Kup) and a friend/teammate to a world-class art museum for a few photo opportunities. My companion was Curtis, our softball team’s speedy lead-off hitter and rangy short center fielder (Short Center is a... Read more »

Who'd win a Celebrity Fistfist: Teen Hunks Edition

Who'd win a Celebrity Fistfist: Teen Hunks Edition
The rules for Teen Hunks fistfights are the same as for my steroid-using baseball player fights that you probably didn’t see or vote on: no weapons, no help from anyone else, just a plain old fistfight. Also, since the hunks are from different eras, they should be judged based on how they’d fight at the... Read more »
