Halloweiner (Or: Does Scrooge Hate Halloween, Too?)

Wow. Well, this is a record for a dearth of blogging. I could’ve crossed the Sahara and back again, sans water, and the vultures would have been blogging more than yours truly. I’d say “sorry”, but that seems capricious; I’d say you never missed me, but that hurts my feelings too much. So I’ll just […]

 

America’s Team: The Dallas Cowboys

I wrote a blog a few days ago about (in large part) God. I wrote about the cage match between us. I worried and fretted because I don’t blog about religion and because (particularly on the Internet) there are a LOT of people who just itch to find anyone who dares utter the word, much […]

 

Cage Match With God (Or: Getting Off The Schneid)

It’s been ten days since my last post—the semi-monumental 200th. The one I hated writing; the one about the death of a mentor and friend I never had the privilege and honor to meet. It’s been a long, strange, at times storming, at times sun-drenched, ten days. But it’s been a hellacious five years. Here’s […]

 

When Is Old TOO Old?

On August 1, 2013, in (or...), BOB DYLAN, Concert Review, Old Age, Rock and Roll, by rsguthrie

We’ve all seen them. The quarterbacks who stayed just a year or two too long in the game. In some cases, we’re talking Hall of Famers. Rather than leave as they peak, they battle it out, bad knees and all. I once was watching a game with my brother—Kansas City versus someone—and Rich Gannon was […]

 

Why American Companies Are Rapidly Failing

I’ve been in a conundrum for several months now. Most of you know I left my “day job” of twenty-three years to pursue writing full-time, not because I was already making enough money from sales to live but rather because the hours of marketing and branding and promoting and responding and making book covers and […]

 

Golf Game Gone To Dog Poop

On April 12, 2013, in (or...), and Such, Humor, Just for Fun, Miscellaneous, Parody, by rsguthrie

When I lived in the Los Angeles suburbs, for a whole year we golfed every weekend (and some evenings under the lights at the local Long Beach 9-hole par 3 course near my home). When I moved to Colorado, everyone boasted about 350 golf days a year.  I was ecstatic. Wow—turns out I had not given […]

 

Being No One Has Never Been “In”

On April 6, 2013, in (or...), GEORGE CARLIN, Humor, Images, Just for Fun, Opinion, Social Media, by rsguthrie

Someone had to say it. There are 1001 social networking sites and they all have the capability (should be REQUIREMENT) to have an avatar. Personally, nothing will ever beat an actual picture of the actual person. I mean the Internet is SO anonymous anyway, and many of us that are actually very good friends may […]

 

A Birthday That Really Means Something

On April 4, 2013, in (or...), A Birthday Wish, Events, Family, by rsguthrie

As homo sapiens—ostensibly the highest-functioning beings on this rock flying through space—we have this (somewhat strange, I’ve always believed) need to ascribe emotional significance to particular days of the year. Now some are understandable, birthdays being amongst those I do understand, but it seems every year the world (or at least the U.S.) comes up […]

 

Top Fictional Monologues Of All Time

On March 22, 2013, in (or...), Just for Fun, Movie Quotes, Movie Scenes, Opinion, by rsguthrie

I admit it. I am a HUGE movie buff. Not old ones, although I consider the fact that I’ve seen almost no Brando, Bogey, Cagney, or Stewart a blessing because I know I will LOVE all those flicks so it’s like there’s a cornucopia of great films waiting out there for me (which is good […]

 

What Thumbhead Returns A 99 Cent Book?

On March 13, 2013, in (or...), Honey Boo Boo, Humor, Jesus, Miscellaneous, Opinion, Parody, The Second Coming, by rsguthrie

I used to blog about the horrific devaluing job on books accomplished by (among others) John Locke and Amanda Hocking. 99 cents for a novel is a crying shame. As a promo price? For a short story? For a crappy book? Perhaps. But that’s not what this post is about. I recently ran a 99 […]
