Life in Pennsyltucky, An Occasional Series

Neighbor, I don’t believe Joe Biden will be visiting our fair burgh so you can have hot monkey sex — no doubt Jill would object — but if that’s your thing, who am I to judge? Seriously, though, it wasn’t Joe Biden who stole top secret nuclear secrets and kept them in bankers boxes atContinue reading “Life in Pennsyltucky, An Occasional Series”

The Hero Sesame Street Needs

I believe I have found my Platonic ideal of a desktop wallpaper. Super Grover! How can one go wrong with Super Grover? The hero Sesame Street both needs and deserves! And whatever mishaps he gets into, whatever destruction head leaves in his wake, Commissioner Gordon will be right nearby to say, “Covered it.” I jest,Continue reading “The Hero Sesame Street Needs”

Recent Tweetery

Some recent tweets that I enjoyed writing. Twitter falls into the memory hole so quickly, and maybe someday I’ll want to return to these. Okay, probably not. But for a minute or two, this is what I was thinking at the time.

Looking for Bidens

I visited Joe Biden’s grandparents and great-grandparents at Baltimore’s Loudon Park Cemetery yesterday. I learned last year they were in Loudon Park, and when I visited again I decided I’d look for them. Ironically, it was at the point where I’d decided to give up that I found them. Is that how it goes? BidenContinue reading “Looking for Bidens”

Fun with Desktop Wallpapers

The baseball season is coming to an end. The 2023 major and minor league schedules were released last week. I have two more games on my Senators ticket plan. Playoff tickets for the Barnstormers go on sale on Tuesday. April seems both like so long ago and just the week before last. Yesterday morning, theContinue reading “Fun with Desktop Wallpapers”

No Joy in the Green Grass League

The York Revolution were having a Peanuts-themed baseball game. As in Charles Schulz’s Peanuts. As in Charlie Brown and Snoopy and the Vince Guaraldi Trio. And they were wearing custom jerseys and auctioning them off. Naturally, I had to go. Naturally, the game was today, and I didn’t know about it until yesterday afternoon. IContinue reading “No Joy in the Green Grass League”

Downtown York from Prospect Hill Cemetery

The hottest day of the year, and I decide to spend over an hour and a half exploring a cemetery. I returned to Prospect Hill Cemetery, this time prepared — I had a backpack filled with fluids so I could hydrate as I went. My plan was much the same as it was the firstContinue reading “Downtown York from Prospect Hill Cemetery”

The Importance of Being POP!s

A week and a half ago — where does the time go? — I made this intriguing post to Twitter: Funko is offering Funko POP! vinyl figures of the dueling Gallagher brothers of Oasis, Noel and Liam. Text needed writing, and I wrote it because that’s my job. And I decided, Oasis fan that IContinue reading “The Importance of Being POP!s”

Sunset on the Susquehanna

The Harrisburg Senators had their first Marvel’s Defenders of the Diamonds Night, an official tie-in between Marvel (Comics or Studios, I’m not sure which) and Minor League Baseball. The game started at six and over by 8:15; enforcing the pitch clock and shortening the time between innings really makes things flow. I walked across theContinue reading “Sunset on the Susquehanna”
