How To Have The Most Fun Ever On Instagram

Instagram Cat

Are apes not acting out anymore, or has the entire world decided to leave this hilarious behavior off Instagram? By my calculations, I’ve spent sixty hours in a van in less than two weeks.

5 Things I Think I Know About Australia

800px-Flag_of_Australia.svg

by Isaac Lai Spoiler alert: I definitely don’t know the second verse of the national anthem. I know the first line (beneath the radiant southern cross), which already puts me in the upper echelon of patriotic Australians even though I look like a waiter at a Chinese restaurant.

By Patti Maguire Armstrong Choosing a pet is not unlike choosing a spouse.  Actually, it’s exactly the same.  So when choosing a pet, consider evaluating it for compatibility in much the same manner.

Sharonlee: Artist, Photographer, Poet, Aging Gypsy/Hippy

Below are four pieces by Australian artist Sharonlee. Her work has a dreamy aura, like vague images that remain foggy in our mind when we awake suddenly, transported from a world we suddenly have to admit was not reality at all but some other place our mind retreats to nightly.  

An Open Letter To My Plastic Surgeon

hospital

Dear Dr. Débaclé, I am writing to you in the hopes that we can settle the matter of you seriously botching the surgery I had with you. I don’t think we need to bring attorneys or health insurance companies into this as long as I never have to work again.  Also, I think you’ll agree that you…

Happy Thanksgiving From Rabble Rouse The World

Rabble Rouse The World Thanksgiving Message

    Dear lovely users of Facebook,  Stop posting all this hate about the fact that corporate businesses are open on Thanksgiving.

Artist Profile: Steve Driver

 Art is something that defies defining. You’ll find as many definitions for it as people attempting to define it. Yet usually, people sense it when they see it.

Rabble Rouser Of The Month: Dorman Dorey

I think it’s natural to want to trace things back to their origins. It’s why when you first meet a couple you inevitably ask, “How did you meet?” There’s something wistful about being able see how trivial ‘whatevers’ can lead to the defining changes of our lives. The “Rabble Rouser of the Month” for June, is…

How News Really Works

Couldn’t find the origonal source, but from the Face Books.

The Grumpy Goat Gallery

I met Pam and Cara like I meet most of my friends: Google Image Search. I was looking for a picture of the devil. More precisely, I was looking for a picture of the late artist who sold self portraits depicting himself as the devil on Prague’s Saint Charles Bridge. But that’s a different (and…

Rusty Solomon Knows Drink

Rusty Solomon is supporting what I have been hoping for for a while: a reason to do what I am going to do anyways and feel good about it. The Greeks used to say, “In wine there is truth.” Well, I think that in Rusty Solomon there is truth. Because, according to him, he’s advocating, based…

somber_john_denver

I think it’s time. I think you’ll agree. I remember watching Good Morning America 19 years ago when new broke that John Denver had died in a plane crash.

The End of Owning

This excerpt is from a mass email that I sent out to friends and family December, 2007.
