The Power of Yes

We were in Boston Tuesday night at the Wilbur Theater, where Yes played a nearly 3-hour concert set to a packed house. Standing ovation. I'll be honest, the Wilbur Theater is a bit run down and the acoustics were a bit wonky, which I hate. But what a band. As tight,...

How Dare They?

We interrupt this program. In this day and age of infinite channels, of smartphone alerts, why interrupt any program? If there's a true emergency, such as a devastating tornado headed for my town, or worse, an asteroid is about to destroy the Earth and there's nothing...

My Summer Vacation

What if the only human interactions that really matter are your "in person" relationships? I know. I'm writing a blog. I get the irony. But every time I unplug these days and have good times with regular analog people, it feels like a better choice than posting...

The Staircase

The Staircase on Netflix It's a hit. See it before you google it. Critics give it 90% and Audiences 88% on Rotten Tomatoes. But we didn't know that. Lisa and I decided to watch with almost no idea what it was. It was on Netflix and had a good review from the New York...

What are Facts?

Each one of us is alone. Although we have our 5 senses, it is up to us to decide what information is real, and what it means. I remember when I was a little kid I was told that snow is made out of water. Sounded crazy to a 4-year-old, until I saw snow melt. Now it's...

Facebook is Like Sausage

You probably don't want to know what's in it. I've probably spent a few hundred dollars in a decade, boosting a few posts to see how well they would do. If you've not thought about how Facebook makes its money, they like it that way. Everything they do is...

Content is King

It should be obvious to anyone who's really paying attention that Trump is getting the hang of it. He's a gifted reality television host, who happens to be President. And I'm not going to talk about politics. There are plenty of channels filled with talking heads who...

King Trump

Every commentator must have moments like this. It was 6 years ago I wrote the last Twisted Tune, "King Trump". It was Spike's idea. We haggled over lyrics as we always do, Spike wanted a hit piece, I was hoping to describe just how he'll win and do great things! I...

Haggling

I don't like to haggle. It stresses me out because I've been lucky to make a good living. I sometimes feel cheap looking for bargains, and worse when I have to dicker. But there I was, at a Tire Warehouse again. Our Toyota Tacoma pickup wore out its original tires...
