New Year's Eve Clutter

Hi everyone, So, it's finally time to wrap up 2013. I think we'll skip the headlines for the day. My partners in crime are off figuring out what they want for dinner tonight, and then they're going to take a nap so they can stay up past their bedtimes. It will be a quiet night at Clutter Headquarters. Last year was so insane, we all agreed to just relax this time. It's entirely possible there's a Doctor Who marathon on the schedule, but I should check in with BDH and Little Buddha first. Speaking of those two, they were kind... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back. How are you? Is anyone making any resolutions for 2014? I've got mixed feelings about those, because they frequently just feel like a set-up for failure. Life is all about continually adjusting to ever-changing circumstances, so it feels pretty arbitrary to set a goal just because the date changed... There's also that underlying message of, "Here's something that I'm not happy with myself about," that I don't really find helpful anymore. Hmm, guess I'm not that mixed about th at all. I think we'll be skipping those for 2014. One thing that won't change, however, is... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Saturday to you all. What's the plan for the final weekend of the year? Before we get to that, the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out the final Saturday Clutter of 2013. Here we go... It's disappointing to hear that a federal judge would find the NSA's spying on Americans to be constitutional. Here's hoping that the ACLU's appeal is successful. Worse than that, it's outrageous and embarrassing that we would even consider letting unemployed benefits expire for 1.3 million people. It will hurt... Read more →

Okay, so it took me a few days to get to this review of Matt Smith's final episode, The Time of the Doctor. I thought I should let it bounce around in this big skull of mine for a bit before I figured out my reaction to his departure from Doctor Who. It was a mixed bag in a few places, but overall, Mr. Smith had a strong final performance and cemented his legacy as a good Doctor for a new generation. The show was about 90 minutes long (including commercials), and it really could have done without most of... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back. How are you? Ready to wrap up 2013? I know I am, but we've still got some work to take care of first. BDH and Little Buddha have the coffee, and I've got the headlines, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's close out the week with a little Friday Clutter. Ready? Here we go... Anthony Weiner might not be done running for public office yet? Oh come on, what great sin has the American public committed to deserve even the hint of this punishment? Cheers to everyone who was lucky enough to... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back. How was your Christmas? For those of you who didn't celebrate yesterday, what movie did you see? However you spent the day, I hope you had a good time. BDH and Little Buddha have the coffee ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Thursday Clutter. ( A quick programming note before we begin: I was intending to include something today about Matt Smith's departure in last night's Doctor Who Christmas special, but I think I need a little more time on that one. We'll come back to... Read more →

Originally published: December 25, 2012 Hi everyone, BDH, Little Buddha and I just wanted to wish you all a very merry Christmas! BDH is throwing wrapping paper all around and making a mess, while BDH contemplates the inner nature of his presents. They're a crazy duo, but they're my Clutter crew, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Have a great day, and we'll see you back here again for more fun soon.

Classic Christmas Eve Clutter

Hi everyone, Time for an old favorite. Merry Christmas Eve to you all. Originally published 12/24/2010 Hi Folks, Christmas Eve is finally here, and that can only mean one thing-- It's time for my most favorite Christmas email ever. People don't seem to forward funny emails as much as they used to, but I used to get this every year from friends back in the 1990's, and it still stands the test of time. I think this email really finds that fine line between Christmas dreams and Christmas reality. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do, and... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Are you ready for the final full week of 2013? I don't understand how time continues to pass this quickly. Wasn't just January a few weeks ago? Or at least June, maybe? Anyway, BDH and Little Buddha are excited to get to work, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Monday Clutter. Clutterheads, I have no problem admitting when I'm wrong (hey, stop laughing.) I had a bad feeling about yesterday's New England Patriots - Baltimore Ravens game, and Tom Brady and crew made me look like an idiot in... Read more →

Sunday Clutter

Hi everyone, How are you? Everything going well? BDH and Litttle Buddha have the coffee ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Sunday Clutter. In less than shocking news, a new academic study concludes that the primary factor behind the current war on voting is racial bias. Condolences to the family and friends of Claire Davis, the 17-year-old who was shot by a classmate in a Colorado high school last week. Davis had been in a coma since the shooting and died yesterday afternoon. BlackBerry refuses to vanish. The company lost... Read more →
