Readers of this blog might be surprised to hear the "sounds of the seasons" on these pages during the holidays. I was thinking about doing something to spice the old bloggeroonie up....and then I heard Zooey Deschanel and Leon Redbone's version of BABY ITS COLD OUTSIDE, and it was a go. Besides, I never miss an opportunity to post a picture or two of beautiful women on this blog, and talk about their talents- it creates traffic here, and keeps me from going nuts talking about the lunacy of politics all of the time.
Christmas wouldn't be the same without the Beach Boys singing LITTLE ST. NICK. And being a Jersey Guy we have to include at least one Bruce and one Bon Jovi Christmas song. BB King and Aaron Neville are on the list because they are who they are....Brian Setzer and his Orchestra because they are soooooo cool. Sarah McLachlan and Joni Mitchell are listed because they're so talented, and Jack Johnson for being so inventive...its almost like hearing RUDOLPH THE RED NOSED REINDEER as interpreted by a man pretending to be Ella Fitzgerald.
Ray Stevens is on the list because his song touches my "Inner Grinch"....and of course, we have a "Message from the King"....thank you, thank you very much.
That's all for now....another icicle light blew out in front of the house. Wish me luck....crikey!!!! Its colder than a witch's (CENSORED!) out there!

Real journalists continue to lose their jobs as newspapers cut staff in record numbers. And while this is happening hucksters like Glenn Bec...

Welcome To My Neighborhood!
Its called "Useless Trivia and Mindless Rants". That's because I adhere to the principle that you can't please everyone, nor should you try to please everyone....so before anyone else rips this blog for being a waste of time or having faulty logic, I thought I'd beat them to the punch, and zing just a bit of self deprecating humor into the title....hey, some people think that's an endearing quality.
Seriously....I hope to entertain and maybe inform, and even teach the reader about a few subjects. And don't be alarmed by the political trappings you may see here. I'm upfront about my political beliefs and affiliations, but I don't wear my politics on my sleeve, and have and always will refuse to be locked into a rigid dogma. This is not really a political blog; its just disguised as one.
My model is probably CBS SUNDAY MORNING, a magazine format. I'll talk about news, sports, TV and films, about music, literature and pop culture, and about the famous and the infamous....and about some people who are out there trying to make a difference in a world that seems to get just a little tougher everyday.
Oh yes...there will be some politics as well.
So pour a cup of coffee, cut a piece of cheesecake.....and stick around for a few minutes.
Occupation- If you believe my conservative friends, I'm a pinko commie socialist out to destroy the very fabric of America's core beliefs.
Liberals think I'm an old school moderate Democrat, and that a guy my age needs to get his hair cut more often.
Just put away that broad brush....
I'm just a "Blue Jersey Guy" who happens to "Bleed Scarlet".
