Mitch Tubisky Saga: Part Deux. A Siamese Dream.

I don’t know about Billy Corgan but MY latest siamese dream has Mitch and I attached at the hip. We plan to make beautiful music together. You can tell by the album cover that I’m still the Alpha Twin. We go to the bathroom when I want to go. Mitch has to hold it. He ...

New to Netflix: The Norsemen

Game of Thrones has ended but the NFL is still a little ways away, so what do you watch to fill in that blank space. No, not time with your stupid family, I’m talking about more television. The Norsemen come to the rescue. I’m a sucker for all things set long ago. I’ve seen a ...

Mizzou Basketball: The Great Unknown.

I spent a lot of time in Columbia, Missouri. Most of that time was spent drinking and watching Mizzou sports, chiefly football and basketball. Let’s be honest other college sports don’t matter. I managed to get a degree and get out, but I still love the Tigers, even if they are frustrating to root for. ...

A-Train Story Hour: Goldifox and the 3 Bears.

  Little John Goldifox was lost in the forest. The young lad had been out riding when his surly horse, a bronco named Elway, threw the boy from his saddle, and rode off. The child cursed the horse. Rising, he dusted himself off and tried to regain his bearings. Where was he? The horse had ...
