Triple Crown: The Middle Child

This is the most racist theme song of the Triple Crown- Maryland, My Maryland The despot’s heel is on thy shore, Maryland! His torch is at thy temple door, Maryland! Avenge the patriotic gore That flecked the streets of Baltimore, And be the battle queen of yore, Maryland! My Maryland! Hark to an exiled son’s …

Happy Mother’s Day

A DocuDharma tradition now on The Stars Hollow Gazette. I tease my mother by calling her Emily after Emily Gilmore both because overall my family reminds me very much of the Gilmores and because she’s never met a brand name she didn’t like whereas I’m perfectly content to buy generic. I thank her among many …

The Longest 2 Minutes In Sports

  This was no ordinary homecoming.  This was a do-or-die attempt to lay the ghost of years of rejection from the horse-rearing elite and the literati who sat in those privileged boxes overlooking the track and those unprivileged craven hordes who grovelled around the centre-field where he had suffered as a boy. The clubhouse as …

Cinco de Mayo

Reprinted from 5/5/2012 The name simply means “The Fifth of May” and it’s an oddly U.S. American holiday. Except in the State of Puebla they don’t much celebrate the victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla in Mexico which makes it much more like Patriot’s Day that we here in New England get …

Allez le Barricades!

The Internationale Arise ye workers from your slumbers Arise ye prisoners of want For reason in revolt now thunders And at last ends the age of cant. Away with all your superstitions Servile masses arise, arise We’ll change henceforth the old tradition And spurn the dust to win the prize. So comrades, come rally And …

April? Already?

  Once upon a time April Fools used to be fun but now it’s just a bunch of brands trying to seem cool with a bunch of boring ass obvious lies. And, because it’s Easter. Christianity is a myth designed to prop up Roman Imperial State control just like the cults of Mithras and Sol …

Naturally Dyed Eggs

NATURALLY DYED EGGS Now with updates! Natural Easter Egg Dyes In the Gilmore house there is no surer sign of Easter than onion skin boiled eggs.  I like them much more than the traditional store kit dyed kind because they have a subtle onion scent that lingers even after you peel them.  In fact sometimes …

My Las Vegas Convention- A Happy Story

(originally in orange Sat Jun 17, 2006 at 07:01 PM PDT) I repeat it annually because there are lessons I don’t want to forget. Can you handle the truth?  How about a good story? If you are a regular reader you may know that I was State Co-ordinator of my meatspace club.  You may not …

142nd Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

Relegated this year to Fox Sports and practically forgotten by me in favor of Winter Olympic Curling (Canada, Switzerland, and Russia btw making it 6 of 12 Canadian Golds in the modern era) it barks and whines like an insistent canine that needs a walk so it can pee. Sorry dude. I’ve been sick too. …

Superb Owl LII: Iggles and Patsies

I think I’ve mentioned I hate both these teams and I can easily think of 17 different things I’d rather be watching. Except for the commercials. Juste à côté. Recognize this one? Yeah, who’d a thunk? But it’s all about who you hate the most and it’s definitely the Patsies. Why Tom Brady’s New England …
