Fortune Cookie Blog (OS version 1.0)


In life’s grand scheme, our brain’s operating system, version 1.0, normally
leaves the factory preprogrammed with a default setting of benevolence.
We can consider ourselves blessed by good luck, if the post-partum hack-
ers fail to retrofit, reprogram & corrupt the mind with nasty malevolence.







Fortune Cookie Blog (It’s the Pits pt. 2)


To get life’s really tough work done, it’ll sometimes require a strong
leader. But, if this deteriorates into strong-arm tactics, it’ll be the pits.
Such an eventuality will stink of metaphorical armpit odor. Eewww!







Spooked Skunk ~ Vid of the Day

Considering all the stench in the vicinity of DC’s 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., these days, the spooked skunk / polecat… be this critter dead or alive… would be a breath of fresh air.

For those who’d like to get the 411 re our Vid of the Day’s novelty / country song, click onto its composer’s name:

Loudon Wainwright III.






Fortune Cookie Blog (cast your ballot)


Let’s compare / contrast two vastly differing ideologies and temperaments.
Exhibit A: The robe and sandals garbed, long bearded saint who frequents
the Round Freeway Off Ramps. Exhibit B: The dressed to the nines, clean
shaven sinner who frequents the Oval Office. Who’d be a better president?







Fortune Cookie Blog (u break it / u own it)


The warlord must abide by the Pottery Barn Rule: “you break it, you own it!”
When war breaks out, it’s his duty to minimize collateral damage within the
civilian populations; to maximize his warriors’ safety whenever it’s possible.
Once hostilities cease, it is his moral obligation to clean up his whole effing
mess / rebuild the war-ravaged countryside; to nurture any fledgling peace.






The 3 Minute Instrumental ~ Vid of the Day

Back in the day when Top 40 a.m. radio stations… such as Windsor, Ontario’s CKLW… ruled supreme over popular music of the 1960s, it was child’s play for the listener to zone out on the the 3 minute instrumental… such as Vince Guaraldi’s Cast Your Fate to the Wind… to envision imagery in the theater of the mind… such as what we see in our Vid of the Day.

I’d be remiss not to Cast my Kudos to the Wind to YouTube videographer JamesTJordan1 for so adeptly capturing the wind… and with a montage of still photos, no less! Kinda makes you want to revisit your younger days… to gleefully rush outside to fly a kite, doesn’t it?
