When our dear Cally was but a wee babe, a mere few months old, she suffered from colic somethin’ fierce. Try as we might we couldn’t calm her down. She’d cry and cry and cry in her misery. One day we discovered two magical elements that, when combined, calmed the savage little, toothless beast.

The first was the Daddy Shoulder. She had to have her head on my left shoulder. The second was the Pogues. You couldn’t just bounce. You had to dance as if you were in a pub. Only then was peace found.

Best song ever written from the perspective of a depressed person’s cat.

Just about 90 minute ride from home. All you could hear were bugs and birds. I didn’t want to come back.

New favorite game the wife and I are playing. Listen to a few seconds of the song, match it up to industry, product and describe the commercial you’d shoot. Has to be lightning round fast. It’s disturbingly fun.

Family of Obsessives

Daughter: Wrapped up like a burrito watching all the Miyazaki movies.

Wife: Suddenly decided to renovate the hallway, without a specific plan.

Me: Reading every issue of Spider-Man from the beginning. Started with just Amazing Fantasy and then The Amazing Spider-Man/Superior Spider-Man/back to Amazing Spider-Man (I’m currently in 1978), but then decided to go back and insert all the stories in chronological order (not in the order of publication, but in the order of events) and have added Marvel Team Up, Annuals, The Spectacular Spider-Man, and Untold Stories. Marvel Unlimited is my primary source, since it’s a simple once-per year cost, but I’ll be digging into print when needed. Because I don’t like having money.

Whilst I await the delivery of the physical round disc and liner notes (an importan piece of an album that has yet to find a space in the digital age) to this fine album, which I highly recommend you buy in any format, please listen, enjoy and purchase.

Whelp…looks like I have to go to Disney World for a t-shirt now. The things I do for love. Of myself. They do have several new beers in EPCOT, so might as well check those out too. Don’t send help.
