Jar of Flies – 30th Anniversary

Posted: 27 January 2024 by Robbie

It was late 1993 when I watched MTV one weekend, I was in the 5th grade at 11. I think it was The Headbangers Ball I was watching when the VJ did a music break to tell the viewers the news of what the bands were doing. And the VJ said that Alice In Chains […]


The Write Stuff

Posted: 15 August 2023 by Robbie

In 2012, I was working on my fourth book called The Gambler Volume One. I would later finish it in early 2013 and publish it on Blogger. I would later move it to a previous website I had called Highway 29, but later moved it again to WattPad. Be sure to stop by and read […]


RIP Jim Price

Posted: 9 August 2023 by Robbie

Sadly, we say goodbye to Jim Price. When it came to the Tigers, I would listen to the Tigers while on the job and rarely saw the games itself. The only times I would see the games on TV was when I briefly had cable TV from 2014-15, or otherwise a night at the bar. […]


I went to Cranbrook

Posted: 30 June 2023 by Robbie

I went to both the Cranbrook Science Museum and also the Art Museum. I have been to the Cranbrook Science Museum a little south of 10 times in my life. Cranbrook was a place I would go to on school field trips back when I was a Special-Ed kid to even one time while I […]


Christine Chubbuck

Posted: 7 May 2023 by Robbie

One of my favorite flicks in the whole wide world is Christine, released in 2016. Christine is about the final days of news reporter Christine Chubbuck. Chubbuck was a reporterfor Sarasota, Florida station WXLT. During her tenure with that station in the late spring to earlysummer months, Christine had an encountered an issue with her […]


I watched Major League III, it sucks!

Posted: 19 March 2023 by Robbie

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 […]


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 […]
