Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

With Halloween soon upon us remember, "With Great Pumpkin comes great responsibility" - Linus... Roger Water's blatant antisemitism is making it hard for me to enjoy Pink Floyd songs anymore... Good for Kevin Youkilis - parent of the week. Not even a mention of uncle Tom Brady... There should be a word for when you write an email at work and are so proud of it you read it over and over again after it is sent... This is why Patriots players always seem more prepared when it comes to knowing the rule-book... Every time I find a fruit fly dead in the head of my beer at a bar I think, "That's the way he wanted to die"... This was the best thing to come out of Sean Rodriguez punching out the Gatorade bucket last night... Oh and if you're not familiar with Sean Rodriguez - you're not alone but then again what's to know about a 30-year old journeyman with a career .228 batting average?... Tom Petty was a heroin addict? Looking forward to this biography and I agree that Petty doesn't get his due in the rock and roll pantheon... Always remember that the word "listen" contains the same letters as the word "silent". To truly listen you should be silent... These Budweiser Red Lights look really cool. I might get one for the Bruins...


  1. Please don't blame Pink Floyd for Roger Waters' idiocy. They had the foresight to toss his ass out of the band a long time ago!

  2. Every time I find a fruit fly dead in the head of my beer at a bar I think - this place is filthy I gotta find a new bar.

  3. Mike - I'll still listen and enjoy the music but Waters idiocy will always be in the back of my head.

    Robert - if it happens after the first beer I agree with you. If after the seventh beer my mind is wondering if the fly left behind a family
