Bob Breaks a Promise for Reasons….

Posted in Opinion, Review with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 23, 2018 by segarini

Once again, I have been reminded that Life, that Wacky lottery win we are currently sharing with 7 Billion or so other lucky human beings (Lucky, because we are not currently alive as slugs, bugs, skunks, mold, or the NRA’s current yeast infection, Dana Loesch), and have been detoured from my original plan, the Alphabet Soup – Food Edition that everyone is just sooo excited about. I am afraid I must disappoint…again.

I am not going to make excuses or whine, or lie, or simply hide under the bed with a stack of comic books and a bottle of Mr. Happy’s Bonafide Bourbon like I used to, but I will tell you this….

Segarini Suggests That 2017 Made 2016 Look Like the Best Year Ever! (Which, of course, it wasn’t)

Welcome to my column.

Please make yourself comfy and perhaps have some snacks available. I would suggest some salty snacks, and some sweet, preferably, chocolate snacks. Personally, I like both Milk and Dark Chocolate, and now I hear there is a Pink Chocolate headed our way sometime this year. I never could abide White Chocolate, though. It doesn’t look right, or even taste like Chocolate to me. It seems arrogant and aloof, you might say entitled…like it’s better than all the other Chocolates, but of course, it’s not. In fact, I think it sucks! YEAH! How do you like THAT? Fucking White Chocolate thinks it’s better than all the other Chocolates. Well, FUCK YOU, White Chocolate…you SUCK! Add a bottle of decent tequila to your snack tray…I’ll be right back after I get mine

Roxanne Tellier – Thoughts for a Winter’s Day

Posted in Opinion, Review with tags , , , , , , , , on November 12, 2017 by segarini


It’s Sunday. Column day. And I’ve got …nothing.

It’s not that I’m ‘blocked.’ No, I can think of a million things to say, and even good ways to say them.

Roxanne Tellier – Looking Through A Glass Onion

Posted in Opinion, Review with tags , , , , , , , on October 2, 2017 by segarini

See how the other half lives. It’s good to go away, and it’s lovely to come back. I have a new respect for where and how I live, as well as a new outlook on the miracle of flight. I’m not saying I lost my fear of flying, I’m just saying my fear and I have come to a better understanding.

Roxanne Tellier – Don’t Be Drunk Uncle

Posted in Opinion with tags , , , , , , , on March 13, 2017 by segarini

Everyone has one – that opinionated, though largely under informed, relative, friend, or acquaintance, that  we dread having a conversation with. Our kinder, gentler side tells us we need to play nice with the crazy person, after all, who else will put up with them? And so, inevitably, an occasion arises where Drunk Uncle is pity invited to join the family to dine, and somehow and inevitably, ends up commanding the room.

Segarini – 2016: Year of the Faceplant or We’re All Bozos On This (Short) Bus

Posted in Opinion, Review with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 20, 2017 by segarini


We have swallowed the Kool-Aid, jumped the shark, and lifted the horse’s tail.

…and in so doing, created a world imagined by Phillip K. Dick, Hunter Thompson, Mike Judge, and Stephen King.  Curated by Gary Larson, Louie CK, and Rod Serling…and now occupied by even our Brightest Lights, who have been sucked into this Black Hole along with the rest of us. That annoying sound you hear are millions of knuckles, dragging across the Linoleum Floor of Destiny…and the wailing of the still upright Brain Trust that allowed this to happen….

Segarini – Teamwork 2

Last night I watched the Director’s cut of a film called “Cowboys and Aliens”, and the first Part of Ken Burns’ epic history of America’s National Parks. In both of these disparate entertainments, the wisdom and spirituality of the American Indian brings calm and understanding, and makes sense of the importance of the wealth of our surroundings, of the beauty of nature, that we have all but destroyed in the pursuit of money, control over others, and intolerance. We need to unite and embrace a lot of what the Indigenous peoples of this continent have believed for centuries, and face off with those whose obsession with the accumulation of wealth and power over others. I want Gene Rodenberry’s future, not George Miller’s. It’s time we stopped whining and yelling and arguing…and DID something about our problems.
