Segarini: Good News, Everyone!

Good News EveryoneWelcome to 2014

I don’t know about you, but I’m glad that’s over and we have a brand new year to muck up.

I am pleased to announce that DBAWIS is kicking off its 2014 series starting on Monday, January 13th with all new articles from who I believe to be some of the finest writers available online.

Thank you for coming here since 2011, and especially for returning again and again, even during our yearly hiatus during the Holidays. With almost 250,000 views, it was with gratitude I saw many of you catch up on the almost 750 archived columns contained herein for your dining and dancing pleasure.

We will endeavor to keep you entertained, amused, and informed throughout 2014 and beyond, and hope you stick with us and let us know what you like…and what you don’t.

We kick off next week with most of the writer’s year end wrap ups, and then it’s back to new content every day (or as ‘every day’ as we can manage).

Here’s a tiny preview of my 2013 wrap up, which will appear on Monday…and thanks again for your support.

Segarini: 2013 – What the Fuck Was That?

All years are either good, with some bad shit in them, or bad, with some good shit in them. Depending on what floats your boat or tips your cow, years are different for everyone. It’s all in your perspective.

For example. When JFK was gunned down in Dallas (by somewhere between 1 and 17 angry malcontents depending on your current favourite conspiracy theory), not everyone lost their shit. There were actually people out there who said, “Damn!, About time!”, to anyone who could hear them over the NASCAR finals or the hubbub at abortion clinics and civil rights donnybrooks.

Let’s face it, in a world where gossips and hypocrites can turn an uncomfortable, slovenly, sadly out of his element mayor into a worldwide celebrity, and said  gossip and celebrities are regarded as news, and phones are smarter than the people who stare at them 24/7, we should no longer be surprised by anything.
