Now Playing Tracks

You know how “it gets better”? And then, because it’s life, “it gets worse”? And then “it gets better” again? And worse and better, and life goes like that forever?

I just realized, for I am very deep… If you stay grounded, the better is really great because it’s starting from a better better.

It’s a better from higher up the food chain/life goals/serenity peace train. Because I didn’t go back to square one and screw it all up so that it could get better.

Look at me learning.

Me to guy that cuts our lawn, “can you trim this giant headge, and cut down those three small dead trees?” Him, “$100” Me, “Try again.” Him, “200?” Better. I don’t have a boatload of money but I don’t WANT to trim a giant hedge and cut down trees and deal with the wood. Happy Labor Day. 




Notice something in common in these photos?

It’s not what you think

I gave it away in the third pic

That’s right! None of these cops are wearing badges or name tags! I wonder why… seems like it’d be important to wear those, since it’s even illegal not to in other states…

This is actually illegal in all states. A police officer must be marked as such with name and badge at all times unless their jurisdiction states otherwise (such as an undercover officer), and even when not wearing a badge, the officer must have the badge accessible at all times and must show the badge in order to make an arrest. Name tags are not required as long as a badge is available because the badge has the officer number on it.

This has really been bothering me. The police in Ferguson are breaking the law by concealing their identities. Everyone knows this, it’s been going on for ten days, and it appears that nobody is doing anything about it.

The police are clearly and systematically violating the first amendment rights of the press, and they are getting away with it. This has been happening for days, and nobody appears to be doing anything about it.

A police officer pointed a rifle at a journalist and told him to fuck off *while he was being filmed, so he’s easily identifiable by his superiors*, and that police officer still has a job.

I know that not all cops are bad (or even most cops), but there are clearly bad cops in Ferguson, and they’re acting with complete impunity. I don’t understand why those cops aren’t being taken off the scene, and why a higher (possibly federal) authority isn’t coming in to address these things.

Just talking to my sister in law and a kid was yelling in the background (Phoenix airport) and she said, “what is that?” I said, “it’s some little ASSHOLE who should get his SHIT together.” I might not be great today. Travel wise. #grumpymagoo. Got a laugh from the people sitting around me and the kid was shocked into SHUTTING UP. So, win, lose, win, lose. Me not feeling good about it but also feeling, “yeah, I got that five yr old.” #progressnotperfection

Cincinnati Dayton Columbus, yer great. We shall gather again! Thanks NatBookings for the kewl new work! Great time working with lil Frankie Beningo’s (TBA) dad. One crazy drunk table last night. They were asked to leave bc, after loudly drunk during the mc and feature, they were loud at the beginning of my set. I asked if they would be interested in being quiet and hearing the show. One of the guys yelled, “NO” so they were asked to leave. I told them to buy my album and yell at it, for fun. The NO guy yelled, “you probably suck anyway.” I, always on the cutting edge of crowd work said, “yeah, but not you.” Huh? Heh. I’m always writing.

UPDATE: Monday 4pm: Just got this:

Name: John stricker


You suck I’m the guy you got thrown out of the woodland tavern Saturday for nothing! You’re playing a hundred person venue because you’re not that good and you have the nerve to ask me to leave because I disrupted you’re scripted set you’re not a comic you’re an actress. Good luck with you’re career! Better find a real job. I think you should refund the money I wasted to see you but I’ll let that be your call

My brother Russ on our brother Terry going to visit our dad, “everyone keeps saying to me - you have a brother Terry?” and i say, ‘yes. he’s like Chuck Cunningham. You don’t see him much after the first season.” 

I’m still laughing. Which lead Russ to go TOO FAR. “That might be too old. Try Molly Ringwald in Facts of Life” Me, wait. that’s not a lot newer. THEN… “or how about Don Grady from My Three Sons.” me, blank stare, “Yeah!! he played the oldest brother Robbie in the first season!” That was 1960. I don’t think you were BORN Russ. “Yeah, but everyone watches reruns.” Hmmm. I still like Chuck Cunningham. 

Love the idea how to reply to replies :)
