migraines and elmo?

migraines suck. more and more kids today are being diagnosed with them. what could cause such an epidemic? what is different about children of today vs children of yesteryear? the answer is obvious.


coincidence? i think not. after spending countless hours listening to 'la la la la, la la la la, elmo's song' they have no choice but to experience searing head pain. not convinced yet? how about that careless coloring, absolutely mind numbing laugh and less than average iq - isn't that enough to drive a perfectly sane diaper wearing toddler over the edge? suppress some of those fuzzy red images and i guarantee they will come back to haunt you later in the form of an aura and medicine resistant migraines.

i don't see any other explanation.

bob on, elmo off, my friends.


act like a cat

huh? seriously?

act like a cat. sleep. sit in the sun. stretch. purr. watch how it changes you.

love life - don't forget to say thank you.

bob on.


how to save the world, part 2

i bet you didn't know that yesterday was part one, did ya? well it was. and as all things in life, we move on. part two.

when we last left our hero, we were calling old friends and holding doors. well that's nice. really it is. but we need more. this isn't going to fix itself you know. you can't have a revolution in one day.

a turnaround. a significant change. what the hell, i'm in. join me.

yesterday we featured instant gratification ways to make a difference. let's put some long haul into todays act. this isn't a flash in the pan i'm talking about here. not some one hit wonder - like come on eileen.

so, the sun rose today. we were tired. didn't want to hit the alarm. the baby was up all night, you had too much to drink, your boss is a jerk, you have a mid term today - whatever. we are alive. that is true. that is awesome. that is why we are here. we all want to change the world - the beatles. let's start at home.

say 'thank you'.

that's all. nothing more, nothing less. watch what happens. make it a part of your vocabulary. mean it. thank the sun, the grocery store clerk, your boss, your teacher, your child, your sister, your parents, your boyfriend/girlfriend. thank em. early and often.

don't you know it's gonna be alright?

rock and roll jesus

kid rock - is he really all that?

it's another night in hell. got that.

breaking through. being strong. and the like.

the world sucks sometimes. it is incomprehensibly unfair. seizures, murder, drugs, cancer, the good die young, the bastards live forever.

yet somehow the sun always rises.

god only gives you what you can handle. what doesn't kill you will only make you stronger. damn. are we really that strong?

how do you turn the corner.

give a little bit more than you got to give. amen.

have you given today? what are you waiting for? pick one and do it. right now. pay it forward as they say.

  • put down that cigarette, chip, soda, beer, joint, burger and be kind to your body - you'll live longer and your family will thank you for it.
  • see that trash on the floor - pick it up and throw it away.
  • smile at a stranger.
  • hold a door for someone.
  • contact a friend or family member that you haven't spoken to in ages, tell them what they mean to you.
  • simplify, testify, identify, rectify .

amen, kid rock, amen.
