The Karaoke Kid

I don't go out much, I pretty much like to hang out on my back patio, drink beer, sip bourbon, smoke cigars, and watch my favorite sports shows on Tivo. You might think that I live a quiet, boring life, but I am plenty happy to just relax when I'm not...

Don't Think Twice About It

Mike's Common Sense There's an old saying, "If you don't use it, you lose it". If that's true, the average American brain must be in a state of atrophy. Most of us are seldom called upon to use our cerebral cortex anymore. Network TV shows,...

The Power Is Love

Mike's Common Sense The age-old battle for Man to figure out is, "Do I try to acquire power, or do I follow the path of love?" A quick look through our past shows that a vast majority of people are in the business of getting power. The pitiful...

With a Little Bit Of Luck

Mike's Common Sense The notion of “luck” means different things to different people. To a regular working joe, it might mean winning the lottery, to a gambler, it might mean going on a hot streak at Las Vegas. To any guy like me, “getting...

Loaded Hotdogs

Janis Has Returned (And She Brought a Guitar With Her)

Just a Song Before I Go

Mike's Common Sense When I was a kid, I really got into MAD Magazine. Never got into Cracked or the others of that genre, but I really got into MAD. One of my favorite parts of that mag was when they wrote parody songs to popular songs of that...

The "Dumbing Down" Of America

A Short Tribute to Gregg Allman

Many things have been said about Gregg since his death, I thought I might add my two cents. I  defy anyone to tell me a white guy who had a better blues voice than Gregg Allman.   Duane's guitar made us fly, but it was Gregg's voice that kept us...

Loving For the Sake Of Love

Mike's Common Sense Wouldn’t it be nice if we loved everyone the way we love our children? We all give our children unconditional love; it is natural to do so. Why can’t we give our mates, our siblings, our parents the same unconditional love?...

Truth Has Become Un-American

Pop! What a Happy Sound

Mike's Common Sense Its Friday, TGIF and all. Throughout this great country of ours, one sound reverberates around it. POP! That's the sound of a beer, wine, or champagne bottle being opened. Let's face it, we Americans like to drink. Come to...

You Have No Events Scheduled For Today

I own one of those "smart phones". This is good, because when it comes to electronics I am kind of dumb. One of the features of my phone is to send me an e-mail alert on any events that I have planned for that day. I never use it. So everyday I get an...
