#393: The Rollercoaster of Life Goes On

 

ChloeTonight’s a wacky one; be warned, I bounce around tone-wise.

I begin with the sad news that my cat Chloe has cancer, then give further thoughts on Hurricane Harvey, Kevin, and Louis CK. After that, I switch gears and talk about the 70’s baby book , “Where did I come from?” and then attack morons who think they are entitled to getting autographs from underage celebrities.

As my son comes into this world, my cat prepares to go out. Needless to say, it’s been a rough couple of weeks.

#391: How to Avoid Annoying People at Bars

http://www.dcclubbing.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/pickup.jpgTonight, I spend the first 15 minutes explaining how to get rid of annoying people who mistake your polite smile for life-long friendship. Then, I ramble a bit about the end of an era. After that, I answer some wacky Quora questions. I also have some fun with people who look like the tattoo monster puked all over them. Enjoy!

#389: Harvey Weinstein and Absolute Power

https://i1.wp.com/www.thebarbedwiresatire.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/6a1-1.jpg?resize=466%2C369
He’s not sorry for what he’s done. He’s sorry because he got caught. You can’t turn a cake into a pizza.

Good evening! Tonight, I wax poetic about:

  • Dating advice about how you should leave your ex’s alone unless you know exactly what you want from them
  • Why we lose interest in people
  • Quick thoughts on, “Blade Runner 2049.”
  • And most of all, Harvey f—king Weinstein, his crew of enablers, and what it means to be truly brave

Enjoy!

#385: Finally…

https://i.ytimg.com/vi/mC1ikwQ5Zgc/maxresdefault.jpg

I’m not there yet, but I got closer last weekend.

I also wax poetic about class warfare in the Kingsman movie, why you shouldn’t settle (again), the sex-addiction drama, “Shame,” and fears I’m having as a parent-to-be. Enjoy!

#383: A Single Person’s Proper Mentality

http://www.bostonmagazine.com/images/uploads/articles/Singles590(3451).jpg

Tonight, I’m going deep on my failures of being a raging coward. Granted, I am completely ignoring the times that I was Sade’s Sweetest Taboo, but such is the life of someone still struggling with self-loathing. At least you might get something out of it.

THEN:

Life happens, and the last 3rd (or so) is about the recent Joss Whedon cluster-f from his ex-wife. I have a more nuanced position the most, at least I’d like to think so.

Enjoy!

  • I also watched the first three episodes of, “GLOW,” and the jury is still out.

Enjoy!
