I am a big fan of Baseball flicks, especially from the 90s. And I’m also a big fan of minor league baseball to the Toldeo Mud Hens to Macomb County’s own USPBL. So, a movie about the minor leagues would be ideal for me, but this movie fucking stinks! For one thing, I don’t have […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]

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 […]
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.
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.
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 […]
