Bob Presents E. Ray Pancake’s Fake News, Bullshit, and Out and Out Lies

Posted in Opinion with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 6, 2018 by segarini

Hi.

I’m Bob.

…and being Bob and of a certain age, I must be honest and let you know that because of the heat I am unable to type very much due to a little known condition called “Beckett’s Wobble Fingers”, brought on by the bones in my fingers turning to a rubber-like substance due to eating too much Play Doh as a child. The heat triggers it and I am unable to push down on the keys of my keyboard because my digits are too soft to push hard enough to make them click and form words with letters. This intro is being typed by my housekeeper and care-giver, Dorito Espenoza, a woman who has served my family since the unfortunate events of June 14th, 1946.

Without further ado, Here’s E. Ray…and Senor Bob, you owe me extra for typing this. Stiff me this time, and I will pour red ants in your underwear drawer again….

Segarini – Q: “Hot Enough for You?” A: “Go Fuck Yourself”

Posted in Opinion, Review with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 29, 2018 by segarini

I hate hot weather.

I don’t hate many things, but I HATE hot weather.

I dislike things that are not to my taste, I rarely feel the desire to hate anything because it is negative energy, and negative energy is toxic. Life is too short to waste the energy, or allow negative thoughts to waste your valuable time, but with the exception of one human being I would love to see get run over repeatedly, shot, drowned, set on fire and eaten by wolves or household pets, I LOATHE hot weather…and be aware that murder statistics go up when it is 90 degrees or hotter.

It’s going to be triple digits this weekend.

…and make that TWO people I would love to see karma-lized and turned into an order of McNuggets….THEN get run over repeatedly, shot, drowned, set on fire and eaten by wolves or household pets

Bob VS Social Media – Full Disclosure and a Snake!

Posted in Opinion, Review with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 22, 2018 by segarini

When I first landed on Social Media, I was smitten with the opportunity to reach 1000s of people with a few key strokes and hitting ‘enter’, or being able to have a conversation with someone without holding a phone to my ear by using Messenger to ask or answer a question without interrupting whatever I was working on for more than a few seconds.

A blank page. I’m staring at a blank page. (ok, not anymore). A few words have appeared. It’s not the dearth of things to write about, it’s the overabundance.

Segarini: My Dad – Father’s Day June 17th 2018

Seg My Dad and I

This is the 9th annual printing of a column I wrote in tribute to my fatherfor  Father’s Day. It is my pleasure to share my Dad with you.

 I miss my parents a lot, and I never got to thank my dad for all he tried to teach me, all he tried to instill in me. If your parents are still alive, your grandparents, even your aunts and uncles. call them up today, tell them you love them, and cherish the ability you have to tell them first hand. Someday, they will all be gone, and even though you will hear their voices and feel their presence for the rest of your life, there will be times when you experience a longing, and an ache so profound, that you will wish with all your heart you could see them again and let them know how much they meant to you. Family is more important than any other aspect of your life…don’t ever forget it.

Happy Fathers Day, Pop…I miss you…and I love you.

Pat Blythe – Monowhales, Secret Broadcast, 1000 Musicians, Anjulie……and Music!

The weather has been nothing but spectacular with balmy, breezy days and comfortably cool evenings. So far so good. Although spring was a relative flash-in-the-pan, with the bitter cold of this past winter still fresh in our memories, everyone has been thrilled to see summer arrive early. Tourist season is now in “full on” mode (please share the sidewalks everyone….standing smack in the middle is not the spot to have a conversation), patios are just buzzing, my backyard looks the best it’s ever been and the sunny days are predicted to continue right through the fall months. I’ll take it while I can but I still want snow for Christmas and New Year. Then we can go back to summer. The city is humming (literally) so, on your mark, get set…..GO!

Bob Takes You Back to 2011 – 2012 When Dinosaurs Roamed the Earth….

Posted in Opinion, Review with tags , , , , , on June 9, 2018 by segarini

I am beginning to believe that time speeds up as you get older. When I was a boy growing up in Stockton, California, the summers seemed to last forever. Disney days and Spielberg nights strung together over a Norman Rockwell landscape like a string of Christmas tree lights, where doors went unlocked and the air was always fresh and scented with flower gardens that proliferated in people’s yards, planted and cared for by doting mothers, pies cooling on kitchen windowsills, and the sweet and sugary smell of backyard trees laden with ripening plums, loquats, and peaches, wafting on the Delta breezes.
