Tannhauser Analyzes the Poetry and Majesty of Bon Jovi Trying hard to capture the moment this morning I don’t know ‘Cause a bottle of vodka is still lodged in my head The casual reader might think that this means that somebody – possibly that treacherous swine Richie Sambora – has hit John in the head [...]
I took a very short weekend trip to Hawaii. I mean seriously, seriously short. I think the flight over lasted longer than my stay (or maybe it just seemed that way). I didn’t have a chance to do all that much, but I made the best of the time that I did have. I hiked [...]

The rest of it is funny too, but not quite as funny. Still, [...]
