Yesterday, I posted the audio of Jose Guillen blowing his l lid. I couldn’t find audio or video of it anywhere, so I started streaming and rolling tape on 810 WHB. I wanted to capture it and share it with people who were looking for it on a little thing called “The Internet.” Heard of [...]

I’ve figured out Grimace. He’s a walking purple candy corn.
It took me forever to find audio of Jose Guillen going off on his teammates, so I thought you might like to hear it. Guillen Outburst Tirade Explosion Cursing And Sounding All Around Upset (1:10 mp3)
I’m loving the placement of the “How will the Royals lose tonight?” poll on the Kansas City Star front page. You click through, and the poll is pretty classic.
Thanks to my brother Bob for making me realize just how bad the Royals are. Wow. Just, wow. What a collapse, what a horrible team, what a long baseball season. Something has to be done to shake up the roster, today. And Nunez going on the DL doesn’t count. The only good thing that came [...]
Command center complete. I turned my 20-inch widescreen on its side so I can stack my personal gmail and my professional Google Apps mail on top of each other.
Jenna Jameson lost her mind. “Being taken seriously as a woman has been the hardest challenge to overcome in show business,” Jenna said. “It took me a long time to make my company successful, and even now it isn’t exactly easy.” This challenge wouldn’t be so hard if she hadn’t been “seriously” plowed on tape [...]
Eating corn on consecutive days makes for fun trips to the bathroom.
Firefox wants to set a Guinness record for most downloads in a day with its release of Firefox 3. Go to this website to pledge your support for “Download Day.” One problem: they haven’t quite announced when Firefox 3 will be available. Shouldn’t they get that figured out first?
On May 6th, the media proclaimed Obama the nominee. The news reports said Hillary was canceling all her public appearances for the next day. This led to my post “She’s going away?!” Look at the question mark followed by the exclamation point in that headline. She’s going away?! It was as if I were a [...]
Sharon Stone said a horrible earthquake in China was karma for the way China treated Tibet and the Dalai Lama. She went on to say China was “not being nice to the Dalai Lama, who’s a good friend of mine.” I hear they have had some epic pillow fights. I can’t wait for one of [...]
You had to go and warn me about cottonwood allergies at Big Lake. I had to go and call “nonsense” on that. I woke up today and my throat was killing me. I guess it’s Claritin season, after all.
Oprah’s going on a 21-day cleanse diet. Here’s to hoping that petrified Twinkee from 1984 finally dislodges from her lower intestinal wall.
It’s a beautiful Sunday in Lawrence, Kansas. You’re a proud mom – your little girl is graduating from KU today. Your husband and your 14-year-old daughter are along for the festivities. Days don’t get much better than this. It’s eleven o’clock, the sky is blue, the temperature is 70. Downtown Lawrence was made for days [...]
I ordered a 24-inch widescreen monitor to fill in the empty space on my monitor shelf – the 20-inch widescreen just doesn’t take up enough room. Mac Mini will run across both big displays, and the XP laptop will stay where it is. I need more reasons to never leave this room. The “after” picture [...]
In the spirit of “miniature,” I’d like us to start using the words “maxiature” and plain old “ature” to describe the size of things. Spread the words.
Dear News Corp, I know it’s in your interest to keep everyone stupid as shit, but do I really need to click 15 times to post a blog or do anything of significance on MySpace? The economy must really be hurting our boy Rupert Murdoch right now, otherwise you’d think he’d freshen this turd up. [...]
Some highlights from an interesting read: Many blame record prices on Wall Street investors new to the oil market, saying they’re bidding up gas prices to artificially high levels – and soaking drivers. As oil nears $130 a barrel, some say $10 to $70 of that price is due to Wall Street speculation. Others say [...]
