La Marseillaise

Vive Le Quatorze Juillet! (An Annual Tradition) Arise, children of the Fatherland, The day of glory has arrived! Against us of the tyranny The bloody banner is raised, The bloody banner is raised, Do you hear, in the countryside, The roar of those ferocious soldiers? They’re coming right into your arms To slit the throats …

Triple Crown: The Middle Child

I was wrong, 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 …

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 …

Triple Crown: 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 I …

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 …

May The 4th

As your friendly neighborhood pop culture maven I’ve assigned myself the Star Wars beat and I’ll start with this controversial assertion- it ain’t all that. Now at the time Star Wars (A New Hope? What, did Greedo suddenly shoot first?) came out it was really exciting. There hadn’t been a big science fiction blockbuster since …

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 …

The Wearing Of The Green

O Paddy dear, and did ye hear the news that’s goin’ round? The shamrock is by law forbid to grow on Irish ground! No more Saint Patrick’s Day we’ll keep, his color can’t be seen For there’s a cruel law ag’in the Wearin’ o’ the Green. I met with Napper Tandy, and he took me …

141st Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

Well, this is quite a step down. The Faux coverage is awful, continually interrupted for commercials and focusing only on favored breeds. It fully justifies my attention to the UConn Huskies 100th consecutive victory last night in a game at Gampel which was closer than the score would indicate. There are 5 teams that could …
