Segarini – About My Column This Week

Posted in A Message, life, music, Review with tags , , , , , on March 4, 2022 by segarini

Due to some very important conversations to negotiate a deal with the CRA and Services Canada, my column at DBAWIS will be late, posted sometime tomorrow.

Unfortunately, part of its content is time-sensitive, so I am addressing that here so that, if there is any truth to my thoughts, you don’t think I wrote this after the event. The full column will be posted here tomorrow.

In fact …I have been wondering about this since I first saw the Poster.

Another Message From Bob

Posted in A Message with tags , , on December 3, 2021 by segarini

It pains me to write this, but more bad news and ongoing computer problems mean I cannot get my column up on time. In order to make sure I can post Chef Tom tomorrow and then everyone else during the week, means I cannot stay working on my piece in one or two sittings, find and/or create pictures, and do a decent job.

The longer I stay online, the more often I have to reboot, waiting at least 30 minutes to do so each time.

I am beyond frustrated.

I will continue working on the column a bit at a time until it is finished, and will publish it sometime this coming week, or Friday at the latest. Interest in The Beatles has lasted over half a century, so another few days shouldn’t matter too much. …and it will give you much to think about.

Please understand I am not in need of advice, nor do I want sympathy or any other helpful input. …just your patience. That said …if any of you happen to have about 4000 dollars laying around that you don’t need, that would be enough to replace this beast and all the apps and programs I will have to purchase and reinstall. Have a great weekend. Chef Tom returns tomorrow.


Good News, Everyone!

No electricity here again today until 5:00 pm …but my Get Back Review and thoughts will be published here on DBAWIS sometime between 8pm and 10pm tonight, unless more craptastic unforeseen drama occurs. Then, we’re back with Chef Tom and the rest of the writers starting on Saturday. As far as my column tonight …Cross your fingers and hope for the best. Here’s a tease ….

UPDATE! – A Message from Bob

Posted in A Message, Opinion, Work with tags , , on November 22, 2021 by segarini

DBAWIS will start publishing columns again this coming Friday, December 3rd 2021. The spanner in the works has been the fact that my building is, for the 4th and 5th times in just over a month, turning off the electricity here to do more work on the electrical system …this time from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm again tomorrow, (Tuesday, November 30th) and Wednesday.

We’ll be kicking off the short run of DBAWIS until our Annual Holiday Hiatus with my full review and thoughts concerning Peter Jackson’s “Get Back” documentary.

See you then.


Segarini – Bob Still Plagued by Writer’s Block

Posted in A Message, Opinion, Work with tags , , on September 10, 2021 by segarini

You would think by now, the writer’s block would have dissipated and I would be regaling you with new stories, humourous anecdotes, wry observations, and titillating innuendo and double-entendre’s.

Unfortunately, that is not the case.

Pat Blythe – The Women of Rock Redux Part 5 – Nancy & Ann……and music

Posted in A Message, life, music, Opinion, Review on June 2, 2021 by segarini

Sooooo many women to include in this series. Six years later and research has me discovering so much more. Although these columns were supposed to be “quick and dirty” updates because of work, that doesn’t appear to be happening. Additions are easy, subtractions…..not so much. There’s so much and so many I want to include and my illustrious editor has found even more. We all have our own favourites and it’s impossible to embrace every single female artist, even just keeping to a single genre. So many forgotten or cast aside as inconsequential, but it’s those women who forged the path many others followed during the past 50 years those are the women I’m focused on.

Bob Says “Fill My Treat Bag and VOTE!”

Posted in A Message, music, Opinion, politics with tags , , , , , , on October 30, 2020 by segarini

Still not able to write worth a fuck, so this is all I’ve got.

This brief column is for our dear, beloved American friends trapped behind enemy lines. The rest of the world is pulling for you (Except those who are playing Monkey See, Monkey Do and acting out because The Orange-16 virus appeals to their Inner Asshole).

Peter Previews Upcoming Peter Posts

Posted in A Message, life, Opinion with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 6, 2020 by segarini

We here at “Don’t Believe A Word I Say ” are taking a few weeks off (August 10th thru September 10th). This column will therefore be very much abbreviated.

In the future, I will continue to write about important issues such as gay rights, the right of everyone to have a decent living, access to education, universal health care and the right to have a dignified retirement after slaving their lives away selling their soul “to the man”.
