CNN just released a new trailer for the final season of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, and we're telling you right now that it's about to get dusty in here. Comedian and TV host W. Kamau Bell discusses what it was like to travel to Kenya with Bourdain earlier this year. We see a few clips of their time together, but it's not enough. Not nearly enough. Parts Unknown premieres on September 23 at 9:00 PM on CNN. This story ended too soon. (pic via variety.com) Read more →


Longtime fans remember well the dramatic transformation that hit the pro wrestling landscape in the mid-1980's. A longstanding collection of regional wrestling territories were challenged by Vince McMahon as he sought to turn his father's Northeast-based (then) WWF into a national company. McMahon upended tradition with sweeping talent raids, aggressive use of the emerging cable television industry, maximizing the new pay-per-view universe, and providing a more cartoonish form of wrestling aimed towards children. The other promoters tried a variety of ways to block McMahon's plans. One by one they fell, and wrestling would never be the same. It's a fascinating... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We were just watching the rain. Guess there's no need for me to water the garden today. BDH and Little Buddha were also talking about how we're back to waking up in the dark, so they need to remember to turn on the kitchen light before they make the coffee. Yeah, things will definitely go smoother if they can see what they're doing, right guys? Right. Fortunately, they remembered this morning, and there's a fresh pot on the counter, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Tuesday... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. Anywhere you like is fine. BDH, Little Buddha, and I were just looking at today's to-do list. It's a little longer than I expected. The guys say we're supposed to get a good amount of rain tomorrow (the remnants of Hurricane Florence), so maybe I should focus on whatever needs to be done outside today and then tackle the rest of the list tomorrow. They're so smart, I don't know where I'd be without them. Of course, the first thing we need to do is check out today's headlines. The... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? BDH and Little Buddha are fascinated by the heavy fog outside this morning. It's supposed to burn off in a few hours, so that's long enough to keep those two entertained for a while. Other than that, there isn't too much to report on this end right now, so let's see what's going on in the world. The guys tore themselves away from the window long enough to make the coffee, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Sunday Clutter. The Trump administration will send... Read more →


Bob Woodward's latest book, Fear: Trump in the White House, has been all over the news for the last few weeks, and with good reason. The veteran political reporter provides a harrowing look into the inner workings of Donald Trump's administration, and it's alarming. It's not that the book reveals another side of Trump, it's that it demonstrates his known failings are even more extensive and dangerous than have been reported. Fear shows that the biggest daily task his staff and cabinet face is not carrying out his agenda (not that he has a defined one in the first place.)... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! Do you have any big plans for the weekend? I was supposed to help Dad Clutter with something, but apparently that's been postponed, so BDH and Little Buddha asked if they could have more reading time. Can't say no to that. Right now, let's sort through today's headlines. The guys made coffee, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Clutter. Donald Trump denies that 3000 people died in Puerto Rico due to Hurricane Maria, and he claims that the "inflated" number... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? BDH, Little Buddha, and I were just talking about how the sunrise is starting later each morning these days. My body clock is pretty much linked to sunlight, so it's easy to get up when it's light out at 5:30 in the morning, but it becomes more of a challenge when it's still pitch black outside. BDH and Little Buddha promised to do whatever they can to get me going, so that I'm awake when you guys get here. ( I think part of that is because... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? BDH, Little Buddha, and I were just talking about last night's Red Sox game. I thought for sure it was going to be rained out, but we had nice weather, and the Sox won, which always makes the lack of sleep easier to handle. Of course, the guys making coffee also helps. They just brought in a fresh pot, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Wednesday Clutter. Here's a picture of Donald Trump, that great arbiter of what it means to be patriotic, on his way to... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back. Come on in, have a seat. How are you? It's good to see that the temperatures are moving back into a more normal range for this time of year. We got plenty of rain last night, so the garden is all set for this week. There's supposed to be more coming today, but now it's not expected until this evening, which is nice, because I don't love driving in the rain. I just don't generally trust that other drivers know what they're doing. Anyway, it's September 11, so BDH, Little Buddha, and I have been talking... Read more →
