Segarini – Stopping the Stupid – Another Monday Filler

Posted in Opinion, Review with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 8, 2018 by segarini

Here’s the problem….

It’s a holiday in Canada. Thanksgiving, to be exact. We celebrate it a month before Our Pants (that’s YOU, Mr. and Mrs. America) because we like to get it out of the way before the snow comes and turns our roads into slip n’ slides, our wives and girlfriends into our mothers, and ourselves (the men) into starry eyed dreamers who think the Leafs have a chance, the Blue Jays need us to manage them, and whoever our Prime Minister is, is a Poop of the Nincom variety.

My guess (always educated, never mitigated) is that the vast majority of our Canadian brethern and sistern are either just recovering from a turkey-induced tryptophan coma, or about to sit down to a bird-laden card table and ENTER a turkey-induced tryptophan coma. Either way, the result will render today’s column an afterthought and almost impossible to read passed out in front of the flatscreen with your belt undone, pants unzipped, and drool piling up on your shirt like the glaze on a Krispy Kreme donut. Sooo…my promised column has been booted to this coming Friday (where it belongs), Gary Pig Gold’s is postponed until NEXT Monday, and tomorrow, as a reward, the first chapter of Darrell Vicker’s new book begins the serialization of said book, ‘Bu House -Here Comes the Sun. Those gems require your attention, and today, you really don’t have any, so I offer this relevant rerun for those of you who can read while the game is on, the gravy dries on your shirt, or can read even though you are asleep or drunk or adrunksleep.

…and if you don’t believe that tryptophan is the reason you’re dazed and confused, blame it on the Bossa Nova.

Roxanne Tellier – All the President’s Men

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

With two of Trump’s main cohorts, Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen, now actual convicted felons, it certainly looks like we’re nearing the end of a long and rocky road in American politics. Trump’s misdeeds are beginning to emerge thru the swampy miasma, and while he may continue to scream, “no collusion!” it’s becoming very clear that the ‘best people’ with whom he has surrounded himself, are not being ‘best’ at all. They are felons, and he himself is now the ‘unindicted felon‘ in the room.

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.

Roxanne Tellier – You Get What You Give

Posted in Opinion with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 22, 2018 by segarini

Really drastic times always have both positive and negative aspects. History is filled with major events that altered the path humans were on, and brought about new developments. The Black Plague. The Renaissance. Evolution itself, for that matter. We’re all happy homo sapiens now, but I’ll bet the Neanderthals weren’t too joyful when that branch of the family tree was sawed off.

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)

Posted in Opinion with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 19, 2018 by segarini

Hello.

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

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.
