This is the “About” page where I’m supposed to tell you what I’m “about.” You might also call it “where I’m coming from,” so that when you read my blog, you’ll know “where I’m at.” Bottom line is, you probably came into this page to figure out who might be writing this crap. After all, it is a moderately interesting question. I could be that psycho dude who lives next door to you, right? Or, I could be the hemorphodite that lives in the house at the end of the block.

I could be a member of congress, a dwarf car salesman, a martial arts instructor with nine kids, a Catholic Bishop, a lesbian bounty hunter, or an expert in artificial intelligence. I might be a ferry boat Captain, or a technical writer, or a designer of custom watches. Maybe I carve emu eggs with a Dremel. Maybe I adjust the reflectors on bicycles. Maybe I juggle flaming chainsaws on weekends at the local flea market.

I could be all of these things, or I could be none of them. But what I can tell you is that I’m just a dude. I’m not a girl. I’m not really young or really old. I’m not extremely religious or intensely atheistic. I’ve got a lot of opinions on a lot of things, and sometimes I’m passionate about them. Other times I don’t care all that much, but still have a good sense of right and wrong. Mostly I look at the future. I suppose that might be something of a talent.

I’m not necessarily brilliant at looking at the future, mind you. I’m sure there are others better at it than I am. But I look at it anyway, because it’s coming. That’s how the future is. You can’t stop it, and before you know it, it’s yesterday. So you’ve got to pay attention to it. The future is like dog food. First it’s in the bowl. Then it’s in the dog. And then it’s poop. Future to present to past. That’s life. That’s the future in a bowl of dog food. (And in the dog. And then on your lawn).

I do know one thing about myself, and that is that I’m not conservative (as conservatives define themselves). Nor am I liberal (as liberals define themselves). I’m something different. I pick and choose between the liberal and conservative viewpoints. I let logic (my own screwy logic) determine how I should stand on issues. And I try not to let my emotions get in the way of my opinions (although I sometimes fail at that).

That’s who I am. Just some dude. Maybe some dude near you.

You never know…

  1. Hey, yer not da crackhead who lives across the street are ya?
    If so, we need to talk.
    One of your friends backed into my car, and I think you stole a step-ladder and some tools from me!
    Oh, yeah. My push mower is gone too!
    You know I have dogs and guns in the house. Stay out.

    IF YOU ARE NOT that guy….

  2. :)

    You need to quit buying cheap tools. All that shit and the pawn shop barely gave me for enough for an eight ball.

    So… you’ve got dogs and guns. Are they expensive guns? And what kind of dogs are we talking about here?

    • The guns ain’t worth a damn either….
      One is a double barrel that’s too old to shoot.
      The other is a single shot sixteen gauge.
      The dogs are mutts.

  3. Remember when Simon Cowell told that Kid-Who-Sang-Like-Crap:

    “You look like one of those creatures with the huge eye balls that swing through the forest.”

    Your profile pic….

    • Damn, I missed that one.
      But I think you’re right.
      And Lemurs are awesome!
      Did you know they fight for territory by rubbing their scent glands on their tails and then flicking it at each other? I sometimes wonder what the world would be like if people were that way, and every fight could be resolved by a nasty smell.

      • Are you John Cleese then?!? He loves Lemurs!

        Thanks for visiting my wee, naff blog and for your comment. Stop by anytime. My blog that is. Not my home.

      • No. I am not John Cleese, but I do enjoy his work.

        I did not know that John Cleese enjoyed lemurs. While I have seen several movies in which he played a pivotal role, I have not spent any time researching his preferences in animal companionship. However, now that I know this, I will remember it, and in the future I will endeavor to place something regarding it in a post. Perhaps I will write something about John Cleese and his lemur farm. Or perhaps I shall talk about his love of goat cheese, and his need to roam the countryside wearing nothing but a plaid g-string. But, even if I don’t write this, I will certainly return to your site (not your home) because your site is strange and unusual, and I like that.

        Some would say I like that because I myself am strange and unusual. But I will not say that, because in actuality I’m not really strange or unusual. I’m just weird.

        Thanks for stopping by!

  4. hmmmm

    • Hey Corve.
      (No, I’m not John Cleese).
      I might be Ringo Star though!

  5. To observe John Cleese’s documentary on Lemurs (which is very worth seeing) go here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t9_5UZtyK10

  6. hmm… you sound to me like you could be a libertarian dood! check out this site and take the short quiz to see for sure here:

  7. Lemurs! Naturally I thought of you:

  8. Love your sense of humor…think I’ll stick around for a while. ;)

  9. I never thought such an ambigious description would leave me so fascinated! You’re rather amusing, sir. :)

  10. My vote is for lesbian bounty hunter. I’m not sure, though, if that means you are a lesbian who is also a bounty hunter or if you are a bounty hunter that specializes in lesbians. Either way – woot. :)

  11. If you aren’t a conservative, or a liberal…..then you are an Independent!

    Also, when I see the lemurs….I think of that Disney movie…where the king lemur dances and sings, “I like to shake it shake it…..I like to shake it shake it!” Hahahaha….funny.

  12. I have your “missing” wisdom tooth.

    To understand what I’m talking about….check this link, and my comment:



  13. I was intrigued by the picture of the Lemur. I once met a man who looked at me with the same expression. It was the late 90’s and we were were each waiting for the bus in San Fran. It was a magical moment.

  14. On John Cleese and Lemurs…watch the movie Fierce Creatures! He costars with Jaime Lee Curtis. Absolutely hilarious!

  15. Hello, I come from “Onecooltips” and am actually worried if you are indeed “that psycho dude who lives next door to me!” because of all the different kinds of possibilites that you gave us about your identity .. :( Smart and funny introduction, hope to read more soon! :)

  16. I saw one of your comments on another blog. The avatar brought me here and then, I subscribed. So, there’s “our” provenance.

  17. I want to start by saying . . . if you’d rather not participate, I totally understand. I have declined in the past myself. It is kind of a pain in the arse. That said.

    I’m awarding you the Versatile Blogger Award because I like your blog and think others will too. As with everything in life, there are strings attached. 1) You are to give the award to 15 other bloggers you feel are deserving and notify them of the award. 2) Make a post thanking the person that gave you the award (moi’) and listing your 15 choices. Provide links to these 16 blogs in your post. 3) Lastly, in your post, list seven things the bloggy world doesn’t know about you.

    Here is the info I was given for the graphic of the award to be used in your post.

    Personally, I had trouble with it, so feel free to contact me if you need help.

    The bottom line . . . whether you participate or not . . . I think you have a rockin’ blog.

  18. I like u already, although I haven’t read much. Def. one of those myself who doesn’t like to take one side or the other, who has their own side.

  19. I feel like we would probably see eye to eye on a lot of things :P Anyways, I’m liking your blog so far so keep the posts coming! :)

  20. mmm quite good quite good
