In Which I Muse about Algorithms, Damn You Instagram!

Some of you out there in Blogland may be familiar with Donald Trump Jr’s meltdown over Instagram algorithms last week in which he posted a video of himself lying down, looking exceedingly stoned and complaining that Instagram is basically sabotoging his account too make fewer people see his posts.

Trump has COVID, Not an Excuse to Have a Laugh, but What the Hell?

So I’m writing this on the morning that the world learned that Donald and Melania Trump have COVID-19.

When the Hell Do You Call a Painting Done?

On occasion I’m asked: “when do you consider a painting to be finished?” Of course that’s a question that a lot of painters get. And I guess the answer if kind of simple: when it looks finished. When I can stand back and say: “that’s what I wanted.” Well, maybe it’s more like” “that’s pretty […]

What the Hell, Let’s Talk Movies!

Last week I told you a little bit about my weird history with TV. I’m pretty sure my history with movies is not quite as weird as that, but I’m also pretty sure I don’t fit the stereotypes that exist of men and their relationships to movies. Lets start withe the geeks, who love Star […]
