Silent Onlooker: The Story of Numb John

Silent Onlooker: The Story of Numb John

This one is long overdue. As most of you Amigos remember, during the first couple of years of my college career (1992-1993) I lived at a JC in Rocklin called Sierra College. Though I didn’t think so at the time, in retrospect it was actually a pretty decent place. I’ve explained previously why I was...

Technically Not Homeless

Technically Not Homeless

I spotted this unique structure the other day at an intersection downtown where panhandlers usually hang out. Apologies for the terrible photo, I took it from the car while waiting at the stoplight. It’s one of those plastic playhouses for little kids, covered with junk and held together with string. I’m not sure what those...
Soap and Candle Mad Libs

Soap and Candle Mad Libs

I’ve noticed this before, but I really noticed it this morning when I went into the bathroom to take a shower and saw this sitting next to the sink. Who comes up with the names for hand soaps and candles? Do a bunch of people get together in a conference room, then have one shout...
Marky Mark And The Funky Bunch - Good Vibrations (1991)

Marky Mark And The Funky Bunch – Good Vibrations (1991)

Here’s a crime against pop culture that shouldn’t go unmentioned… This one pretty much speaks for itself. I challenge you to watch it all the way through. From a certain perspective, Marky Mark is something of an inspirational role model. After doing hard time for beating a man unconscious and leaving another blind in one...
Snow – Informer (1992)

Snow – Informer (1992)

I recently remembered another of what I consider one the worst songs of the 90’s.  Billed as a “reggae” song, this is more like terrible rap crossed with some horrible version of reggae that leaves you with something I’d rather call, “rapgae”. I remember this song being popular, but I didn’t realize it got as...
Jeter’s Playground

Jeter’s Playground

Given the awesome name of this place, I’m sure there’s an interesting story behind it. Can any of the Amigos enlighten me? I’m envisioning a place full of see-saws, trampolines, and dudes wearing Worley Wraps. Did anybody go in there while it was open? If so, what was it like? Why is it now closed?...
Name That Costume

Name That Costume

I stopped in at my local Party City the other day to take care of some stuff for my son’s birthday party. While there, I noticed this display near their costumes section:   Let’s see: from left to right, we’ve got Santa, Party Girl, Elf Slut, and… uh, what is the person on the right...
Booger Eating: America’s Hidden Epidemic

Booger Eating: America’s Hidden Epidemic

You’re driving in your car, and eventually find yourself at a stoplight in a busy intersection. You’re going to be waiting for a while, and half-absently glance around at your surroundings while you adjust the stereo. The car next to you on the right is fairly nice, and in the driver’s seat is a professional-looking...

10 years man?!

I just wanted to point out that this blog will be celebrating it’s 10th birthday in January of 2014. We need to find a proper way to celebrate this wonderful occasion.
They don't look homeless to me.

They don’t look homeless to me.

  Can somebody please explain why this is broadcast to everyone on the side of their RV?  Looking for handouts and pity perhaps?  
I get mad!

I get mad!

I have no clue why this popped into my head this morning.  I was in the office making coffee, and I wasn’t even MAD.  But this old little short from Sesame Street crept into my subconscious.  Thanks to the wonderful technology of Google and YouTube I was able to relive this very old childhood memory....
