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 →


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 →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We hope you all had a good weekend. It's still a little unseasonably chilly around here, but temperatures are supposed to go back to a more normal range tomorrow. There's also some rain in the forecast this afternoon and evening, so we'll see if I need to water the garden. BDH and Little Buddha say the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Monday Clutter. Here's another reminder that Hurricane Florence is on her way to the East Coast, so be prepared. We want... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Quick question - what happened to the warm weather? I mean, it's September and all, but it's currently 46 degrees. That's not right. It seems like we were just living in a carefully positioned network of fans here, and now I have to find sweatshirts for BDH and Little Buddha. I know, I sound like Goldilocks, but life is best lived in a range of 60-75 degrees. Even the plants agree, but now I have to start cutting back the garden, and that's a whole other story. Anyway, let's see what's going on in today's headlines.... Read more →


The Clutter staff are big fans of Chuck Klosterman. The social critic brings a cutting sense of humor and unique perspective to his subjects, which makes his writing a consistently engaging read. (Check out our review of Kloserman's recent essay collection, X, here.) We've also been fans of Van Halen for more than 30 years, so we were thrilled to find out that Klosterman has reviewed all 131 songs in the Van Halen catalog and ranked them from worst to best. That's right, Klosterman covers everything from David Lee Roth, to Sammy Hagar, and Gary Cherone, then back to Roth,... Read more →
