Triple Crown: The Middle Child

This is the most racist theme song of the Triple Crown- Maryland, My Maryland The despot’s heel is on thy shore, Maryland! His torch is at thy temple door, Maryland! Avenge the patriotic gore That flecked the streets of Baltimore, And be the battle queen of yore, Maryland! My Maryland! Hark to an exiled son’s …

Happy Mother’s Day

A DocuDharma tradition now on The Stars Hollow Gazette. I tease my mother by calling her Emily after Emily Gilmore both because overall my family reminds me very much of the Gilmores and because she’s never met a brand name she didn’t like whereas I’m perfectly content to buy generic. I thank her among many …

The Longest 2 Minutes In Sports

  This was no ordinary homecoming.  This was a do-or-die attempt to lay the ghost of years of rejection from the horse-rearing elite and the literati who sat in those privileged boxes overlooking the track and those unprivileged craven hordes who grovelled around the centre-field where he had suffered as a boy. The clubhouse as …

Cinco de Mayo

Reprinted from 5/5/2012 The name simply means “The Fifth of May” and it’s an oddly U.S. American holiday. Except in the State of Puebla they don’t much celebrate the victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla in Mexico which makes it much more like Patriot’s Day that we here in New England get …

Away with all your superstitions Servile masses arise, arise We’ll change henceforth the old tradition And spurn the dust to win the prize. So comrades, come rally And …

  Once upon a time April Fools used to be fun but now it’s just a bunch of brands trying to seem cool with a bunch of boring ass obvious lies. And, because it’s Easter. Christianity is a myth designed to prop up Roman Imperial State control just like the cults of Mithras and Sol …

Naturally Dyed Eggs

NATURALLY DYED EGGS Now with updates! Natural Easter Egg Dyes In the Gilmore house there is no surer sign of Easter than onion skin boiled eggs.  I like them much more than the traditional store kit dyed kind because they have a subtle onion scent that lingers even after you peel them.  In fact sometimes …

My Las Vegas Convention- A Happy Story

(originally in orange Sat Jun 17, 2006 at 07:01 PM PDT) I repeat it annually because there are lessons I don’t want to forget. Can you handle the truth?  How about a good story? If you are a regular reader you may know that I was State Co-ordinator of my meatspace club.  You may not …

Groundhog Day

What would you do if you were stuck in one place and every day was exactly the same, and nothing that you did mattered? That about sums it up for me. Ned?  Ned Ryerson?! You like boats, but not the ocean. You go to a lake in summer with your family up in the mountains. …

Birmingham Jail

Fifty years ago Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was murdered at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee. Room 306. Now we have an avowed racist in the White House. Some people think between his death and that of Robert Kennedy it was the end of hope. I agree. The King family and others believe the …
