Defund the 4th of July: It scares small children, the animals, veterans and old folk, which is now the American way it seems. I’ll look at them if I’m around, but I absolutely loathe your explosions. The worst holiday by a mile.

Congrats to the NCAA student athletes who carry the weight of big business college athletic program fat cats on their backs. Hey rednecks, you wanted a truly free market, you’re getting it.

I’ve been watching DVDs like a caveman, but finally, on my birthday, received the 4K/BluRay special edition of the Back to the Future Trilogy. Over the past three weeks I’ve watched all three, with and without the commentary + a slew of special features. I seriously doubt there will ever be a series more in tune with my sensibilities than this one. LB is in line as my successor. #BTTF4Life A+++
