A Special Ed Tale II: Night of the Prank Calls

Posted: 29 October 2022 by Robbie

In the 90s and thanks largely to The Jerky Boys, my preteen and teenage self would enjoy the pastime of making prank calls. Of course, in the 80s and some of the early 90s, one could make a prank call to most residents and businesses without being detected. However, when *69 showed up, that made […]


The Day I Met Mary Jane

Posted: 15 September 2022 by Robbie

October 1998 / Roseville, Michigan Yes, I don’t remember the exact date but I guess it was about this time. Both I and my pal Vince were wearing jackets and making the long walk down Gratiot Avenue to his friend’s house on 12 Mile close to the city of St. Clair Shores. At that time […]


My 9/11 Story

Posted: 11 September 2022 by Robbie

Well, for starters, I wasn’t in NYC or Washington on the sad day of 11 Sep 2001. Instead, I was a ne’er-do-well living with his mom in the Macomb Chateau Trailer Park (now under a different name) in Macomb Township, MI. It was a day off for me from my job at Mazel’s (now defunct […]


November Rain (An Observation)

Posted: 24 July 2022 by Robbie

For the six or seven people reading this blog, I have been working 6-7 days, 12-hour days for the most part. Gotta keep making money! Need to save for a soon-to-be foreclosed house. Plus, buy stocks while they are cheap. Verizon went down due to the missed earnings and lack of Free Cash Flow. I’ll […]


My 11th Birthday

Posted: 29 March 2022 by Robbie

On my 11th birthday, my aunt and uncle brought me to the Pistons game on March 31, 1993, where they took on the Portland Trail Blazers. Not only would I’d be going to the game, but I would also be one of the pre-game ball boys (catching rebounds in practice). There were no guarantees that […]


Russia/Ukraine Situation

Posted: 25 February 2022 by Robbie

I suppose you don’t need a smartass blogger like myself to tell you that we are dealing with a historic moment. As of 25 Feb 2022, we are seeing Russia invade Ukraine. There were quite a few things I didn’t know and seeing Russia run with the invasion was surprising to me. However, I suppose […]


Down in the Grosse Pointes – Xmas

Posted: 24 December 2021 by Robbie

This time around, I stayed mainly at Grosse Pointe Park. When arriving here, I thought of my trip down here a week before Xmas in 2019.


A Special Ed Tale

Posted: 14 November 2021 by Robbie

When the Persian Gulf War started in January 1991, us Special Ed Kids began to talk about our thoughts of the War in Iraq. We spent that good hour talking about our concerns about the war, much opposed to our troubling lives.


Saving Cash Story

Posted: 25 July 2021 by Robbie

Bloggers Note: This story talks about places in the Metro Detroit area. To best help the folks not familiar with the area, I provided maps. I hope I did a good job. Yes, it doesn’t make a whole load of sense to start a finance article with a depressed guy photo. However, this story will […]


New Track Troubles and A Band Called Raptor

Posted: 17 April 2021 by Robbie

Made two tracks recently with the Super Human Intelligence Towards Exile name, they are Generation QAnon and Centralia. Generation QAnon was released last Monday and I ran into a problem with that release. Before putting songs out in the public sphere, I listen to the song on my CPU. And in my car and on […]
