FINALLY, A Column For Everyone, Which Will Offend No One… Or WILL It???

FINALLY, A Column For Everyone, Which Will Offend No One... Or WILL It???

We live in a time where people are incredibly easy to offend. Oh, shoot, I’m already on the wrong foot, at 34 percent of the people reading that were offended by my insinuation that they might be offended by that, or that they might be easily offended. Damn! Another 22 percent were just offended by that second paragraph, because they think I’m being sarcastic. Ahhh geez… yet another 19 percent were just offended that I’d even bring up being sarcastic. Ok, let’s start over. Bam! A whopping 28 percent are offended that I’d want to apologize, and another 17 percent... Read More

Illinois Author’s Book Asks, What If Jesus’ 12 Disciples Were Ninjas?

July 2nd, 2022
Illinois Author's Book Asks, What If Jesus' 12 Disciples Were Ninjas?

What if the disciples were ninjas fighting to prevent Satan from possessing Jesus’ body and creating a zombie antichrist to rule the world? That’s the fantastic premise driving The Blood of Destiny, the new novel by Sean Leary. It’s been described by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Geraldine Brooks as “imaginative” and “exciting” and NY Times best-selling author Matthew Clemens said “this book rocks!” It’s Good Friday, 33 AD. Jesus Christ has been ritually crucified, his soul sent to hell, to free the lost souls of purgatory. In three days’ time, it is prophesized he will rise... Read More

With Covid Returning, It Brings With It Lessons To Hold Onto

With Covid Returning, It Brings With It Lessons To Hold Onto

I thought we were going to make it through. As far as we knew, my son and I had not had covid. Early on in 2020, we were both incredibly sick with something that could’ve been covid, but we weren’t sure because, well, at that point, nobody was testing for covid, and it wasn’t until months later that the symptoms resonated with what was being reported. Both of us are vaccinated. Both of us were pretty darn careful. But as the months of this year started to unfold, and covid faded out of the headlines, we figured we were past it. Nope. About a month back, my son began a weekend... Read More

Will The Force Be With Disney’s New ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Miniseries?

Will The Force Be With Disney's New 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' Miniseries?

One of the most anticipated shows of the year — for “Star Wars” fans, at least — has debuted on Disney plus. “Obi-Wan Kenobi” was originally slated to debut today, but late last night, Disney plus surprised everyone by dropping the first two episodes on the sly. I’ve been waiting for this for a while. I’ve always been a big fan of the character since Ewan McGregor really brought him to life in the prequels, and after the horror show of the last trilogy, Disney plus has done a fantastic job of reclaiming and building upon the quality of the franchise.... Read More

Today, On St. Hulk’s Day, I’d Like To Introduce You To The Many Sean Learys

Today, On St. Hulk's Day, I'd Like To Introduce You To The Many Sean Learys

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

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

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

Did Avril Lavigne Die And Get Replaced With Her Illuminati Body Double???

Did Avril Lavigne Die And Get Replaced With Her Illuminati Body Double???

There have been a lot of horrible things going on in the news lately. So I think it’s time we had a difficult discussion on a sensitive topic that, quite frankly, I’ve been avoiding talking about for a while. No, not my relationship with Kim Kardashian. (Fifty feet MEANS fifty feet, Kanye!) But rather, the fact that Avril Lavigne possibly died (or was murdered) and replaced with an Illuminati body double. I know, I know, I know… you’re like, “Oh Sean, EVERYONE knows about that!” But what about the one or two Amish folks out there, who are just getting onto the... Read More

You’ll Be Cold Busted If You Don’t Check Out The Video You Deserve!

You'll Be Cold Busted If You Don't Check Out The Video You Deserve!

Its Monday, and you know what that means. That’s right. It’s time for The Video You Deserve. Mondays can be pretty dismal and dingy. And really, so is the subject matter of this song and video, but it’s so damn cheesy and goofy that it transcends what should and could be a much sadder subject. The subject is infidelity, the cold harshness of that freezing rain of a no-good cheating partner falling on you, before you walk in, cut up all their credit cards, and take back that $3700 lynx coat you got them, which is preferable to jammy flat-blasting both of them. Or, at least, that’s what Oran... Read More
