March 25th, 2022

Is pink a girl’s color? Is pink a boy’s color? In the past few years, pink has become a hot fashion choice for men. Pro basketball and soccer players are wearing pink shoes, rock stars like Machine Gun Kelly are wearing hot pink and playing pink guitars, and even football players are wearing pink to ostensibly raise awareness for breast cancer. Some people are aghast at that. But why? Historically, that’s a very masculine choice. In the 19th and 20th centuries up through the 1940s, pink was considered a color for boys, as it was the lighter version of red, which was considered... Read More

Today, I’m going to write about a brilliant creator and comedian. Someone who has made a mark on the field of comedy and the arts. Someone who is continuing to innovate and gain recognition and stardom on the national stage. Of course, I’m talking about Sean Leary. That’s right, Sean Leary. Not me, Sean Leary. This Sean Leary. The other Sean Leary. Well, one of the other Sean Learys. There are actually a few of us. And this week, I was once more reminded of that. This week, I had a guy named Norman Fink trying to contact me via facebook messenger. The message was short, and was initially... Read More

Doc Kaalberg Goes Out On A Limb To Recommend This Iowa Pie Company

March 16th, 2022

The first citation states “as easy as pie” originated in Australia in the 1920s. It grew from the term “pie on” or “pie at” which means to be very good at something. The root is the Maori word “pai” which means “good”. Hence, if you’re good at something it will be as easy as pie. Out On A Limb Pie Company, demonstrates there is nothing easy about her pies. In fact these are pain staking creations of lots of scientific development and meticulously crafted amazingly baked concoctions. For her it has become “Easy as Pie”. By her, I am referring to Juli.... Read More

If You’re A Human Being Living On Earth, You Need To Read This

Welcome to the column for all carbon-based life-forms. If you breathe oxygen, this is for you. And if you live on a planet, especially Earth, well, then, you’ve come to the right place. Sorry, but I’m just following the new trend in advertising: casting as absurdly wide a net as possible. Products used to be advertised to a fairly specialized base. Each ad could be counted on to pander in its own unique way. You’d have your commercials aimed at seniors, in which someone sincere who was on TV when it was still seen only in black-and-white would give a testimonial about the product. Said commercial... Read More

A Strange Taste For Cheesy Songs Begins With A Little Taco

March 11th, 2022

I used up almost all my sister’s voicemail the other day. It couldn’t be avoided. There was something of vital importance I had to share with her. Taco’s “Puttin’ on the Ritz” was on the radio and the event had to be recorded for posterity. Especially the part where the robotic voice says “super duper.” You get the feeling that’s the part where the producers were trying not to cackle in Taco’s face. I’m a sick man, I know. But what afflicts me is a malady that most of us share — a love of cheesy pop songs. Not bad pop songs,... Read More
