“We’ve gotta get outta this place.”

(How many times and places have I said this to each all of them?)


For some of y’all out there who may have wondered where the hell I’ve been lately…

Well, I have been endeavoring with gusto and, actually, extreme prejudice, to ‘reinvent’ me. You see, I want to be a ‘happier, gentler, kinder’ kind of blogger. I no longer want to post rants, though I do love to RANT.


Below please find some Rant Links from My Past. I believe they are representative:

Anyhow, the frontal lobotomy and the Prozac, and the small furry kitten to pet, and the re-education classes (particularly loved Those!), have all done wonders for my mental frame-of-reference. Oh! And to whomever sent me that ‘Care-Package’ of Calgon-Bath-Oil-Beads… Gee thanks.

They took me away. But too late, for ‘They’ had already taken me away… Nice try. I loved the sentiment anyhow.

If you happened to read my last post, you will have discovered that I have taken on some menial labor. Now: This is no disrespect to those who perform such. Au contraire! It is just a fact. And I did mention with accolades, how very much I enjoy it (menial labor).

The thing is, is, I am just in a slump—between gigs—gigs that

this, this 24 hour news cycle which always gets it wrong. (Yes: CNN, Fox, American BBC, American Al Jazeera: I am talking about you—and all the other ‘News Networks.’ Ad nauseam.)

I belong in War Zones; that is the only kind of Gainful Employment Venue I am well-suited for.

More to come…

  1. Happy you liked the Lewis CK bit. Saw a comedians’ roundtable recently with Jerry Senfeld, Lewis CK, Chris Rock and Ricky Gervais which put me onto Lewis. Very funny chap. Recommend his show’ Louie’ too.

    I get your point about Ferguson and the riots. They pin point a controversial homeland topic and don’t let up and dismiss reporting the other important news.

    I wish I could ramble in my blogs in a similar vein to you. You have that natural writers compulsion not unlike how Charles Bukowski felt this compulsion to write and did so in a prose which went deep into the marrow of the bone. He had no time for metaphor. See his ‘So you want to be a writer’ poem http://allpoetry.com/So-You-Want-To-Be-A-Writer . I got hooked onto his novels and poetry. Keep doing what you’re doing Lance. Good to catch up. Cheers.

  2. I read recently that CNN and Fox and all them… were just one more glorified ‘reality news show.” Cannot say I disagree. Case in point: 24/7 coverage of Ferguson Missouri: nada during that time of what is going on in the ME, i.e. ISIS, et al.
    Rest my case.
    My friend, and Yes! I can call you ‘Friend’, I mean, after all, you did visit my site… (I am always wont to ramble–forgive me–) Anyhow, whatever my point was, I just lost it–nevermind:
    Oh yeah:
    I have written and exposed (ad nauseum) Lenny. Here:


  3. Lance, I have been away from the blog seen a long time too and had to check out what’s new with you. I don’t get the ‘why the 24hour news cycle gets it wrong’. I watch a lot of the news mainly Australian and English news since I don’t trust anything American in news. But how do they all get it wrong? That’s what I’d like to know Lance. By the way Lance you should check out a comedian called Louis CK. Heres my fav performance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGDPme0JN5g

  4. I do believe you were in that tub , the kind and gentle you pulling at her hum, stay safe and send us letters back here at home!

  5. There’s no sense paying attention to the news. Better, I think, to… oh, wait, you have to be prepared for urinalysis… Never mind. I’ll smoke for ya. You just go do that bath bead thing.

    Always glad to know you’re still casting shadows, man.
