So, I've been giving you a blow-by-blow of my successes in gaining publication. Here's a recap of recent events.
I have a piece in the latest issue of Funny Times.
I had a column in Saturday's Boston Herald.
Here's where you can find some more of me: The M Street Softball League website.
This last isn't something I wrote for pay. It was a labor of love. And I can understand if some of you don't give a rat's ass. Fast-pitch softball, played by men, isn't everyone's cup of tea. So, go read it if you want to, but if you want something else to do, instead, here's something that MY WIFE and I both have found highly entertaining. It is the Abbey Road crossing cam.
You all remember the iconic album cover by The Beatles, right?
Well, if you go HERE, you'll find a live camera trained on that road crossing, 24/7. And, if you have the patience to wait a minute or two (possibly less) you'll see all manner of idiots walking into the middle of this busy street and trying to replicate that photo in one way or another.
We think it's hilarious, especially when one of the dopes finishes posing, forgets that it's a live street crossing, and almost gets run over by a lorry.
And, if that doesn't float your boat, how about some Canadian gangsta rap?
My friend, Sean Flaherty, somehow stumbled onto this. Sean is oddly constructed mentally (which is why we have been friends since high school) and he likes to explore the weirder things in life. He decided to go to You Tube and put in the words "Canadian Gangsta Rap", just to see if anything at all came up. He found out there was a Canadian gangsta rap subculture of sorts. Who knew? Personally, one dose of that will last me about two lifetimes, but if you don't like fast-pitch softball or The Beatles, maybe it's just what you need.
Soon, with more better stuff.
