doctorchillgood: So I’m known as a straight bro in most circles. However its not really me, I’ve known for awhile that I’m gay. The problem is I really like a bro from college, and by like I mean as more than just as a bro. As far as I know he is straight, he doesn’t set off my radar if you know what I mean. Do I… The good Doctor perscribes a little righteousness.

dagotron: If you’re a man who loves football… It is important for you to understand that, unless you hold season tickets or play on a football team, your exposure to the sport is more properly described as “watching television.” You may love football, but what you do all weekend long is watch television. The majority of women see watching television all day Saturday and Sunday as...
matt-t asked: Didn't you do a review of it? When I was watching it I thought, I know why Sam likes this movie. I think I'm going to buy it, it was great. And I want others to see it
Neil Young See the Sky About to Rain
Just got off a conference call with the resort where we had planned to be married in three weeks. The aftermath: E: You can be really nasty when you’re angry Me: That’s sort of the point of being angry, isn’t it? Otherwise it would be called being happy, and getting nasty with them would have made no sense E: … Me: Guess I just proved your point
The Palm →
Roughly 30 years ago I was in NYC for the first time, out on the town with my Father. He took me to dinner at the original Palm restaurant. It’s an informal old school Italian steakhouse on the east side. That night I ate with my hero and had as good a meal as I’ll ever have in my lifetime for so many different reasons. The food alone isn’t the best, but it is the best to be...
Perhaps I could have chosen my words better
“Babydoll, I think this is great news. I live for situations like this. When I heard the resort was cancelling on us I laughed out loud. Finally, this wedding planning is getting interesting.”
What, me worry?
Thanks to everyone who has reached out about the whole wedding disaster I’m dealing with. I’m actually not sweating it. Kicking ass and solving problems is what I do for a living, so I’m confident we’ll sort it out. Anyway, I’m going to The Palm for a nice prime steak and some cold vodka tonight with an old friend. Life aint bad at all.
I usually don't drink until the evening...
…but today may be an exception. Three weeks out from our wedding, the resort just called and asked if we want to cancel. Apparently the recent hurricane eroded the beach significantly, and they plan to have a barge dredging sand and spraying it on the beach. The same beach were we are supposed to be getting married on. At the same time we are supposed to be getting married. This may end...
Have to jump offline for a moment
A heavy wall of rain just slammed into the neighborhood. Little Moey just ran over and cowered under my chair, shaking hard and crying. Need to go give him a little pep talk.
I fought hard to not answer the question, but my babydoll insisted we play “The List” game. If you haven’t played, it’s when two halves of a couple declare that if they have the chance to sleep with someone famous, they get to list five that their partner must allow to happen given the opportunity. Here, therefore, is my list, in no particular order: Kelly MacDonald...

Johnny Iuzzini: Fraud
I knew there was something about this guy that I didn’t like. With his silly pompadour and lame tattoos he always struck me as trying a little too hard. Now, in today’s Daily News, a quote from Mr. Iuzzini about egg creams: “It’s essentially chocolate syrup, ice cream, soda water and sometimes milk”. Wrong. Very wrong. An egg cream is never made with ice cream....
Dan Dierdorf is giving a clinic in bad announcing...
After Eli Manning threw a left-handed shuffle pass for an easy interception, Dierdorf complimented him on avoiding the sack. Just now Cortland Finnegan had his helmet ripped off, resulting in a presonal foul call against the Giants. Dierdorf noted that the helmet was off and criticized Finnegan for removing it, commenting that he should be penalized for doing so. You should pretty much assume...

My girl talking about the contestants on “Top Chef: Just Desserts”.
Looking for a nice pair of suspenders to hold the pants up on my wedding suit. I already own a few pair but I’m looking for something special. Here’s the thing that’s bothering me: the fact that there is a bar in New York City named “Suspenders”. Worse yet, the realization that there are bars all over the country with the same name. They generally have some sort...
Nine O'clock on a Friday
And I’m home alone doing wedding planning/organizing type stuff. I’m actually really enjoying it, but still. There is a tiny little corner of my brain, sitting behind a heavily locked and reinforced door. Behind that door is a younger me, who desperately wants to run out and punch me in the face and tell me to stop being such a frigging loser. I’m cool with keeping that door...
Starts earlier every year. Today’s invites are “Let Me In”, “Waiting for Superman” and “Shutter Island”.

The Shutter Island invite promises a q and a after with ‘The filmmakers” which is a giant...

Fuck you, Ben Affleck
You have an Oscar. You have a gorgeous wife and healthy child. You were blessed with a ridiculous body and those chiseled, leading man looks. Now you went and made an unbelievably good movie, where you not only directed yourself into a great performance but also got the best out of Jeremy Renner and Blake frigging Lively ferchrissakes. Fuck you for doing it so well.
