An Open Letter to Fans of the Philadelphia Phillies

September 29, 2011

So here we are; the St. Louis Cardinals are squaring off against the Philadelphia Phillies in a five-game series to determine who will advance to the NLCS. The timing might be odd, but I’ve decided to reveal a dirty little secret…

I like the Philadelphia Phillies.


Ever since they saved the grounds crew in Colorado I’ve been a closet Phillies fan. I think Jimmy Rollins is hilarious and has a promising future as a sports broadcaster after he retires. Chase Utley seems like a stand-up guy and I appreciate his attitude about animals’ rights. Ryan Howard is a St. Louisian (not sure if that’s a word), so I love that. (more…)


Things My Future House Will Have

September 16, 2011

The alliance partner and I have been discussing looking for a new place to live. We love the ancient house we’re in now, but it’s become less practical for a few reasons I won’t go into here.

So, I guess the first thing on my to-do list is to figure out what kinds of things I’d want out of a new house. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far…


The Tagi Stratagem

The art renaissance continues with a piece I did that depicts my favorite moment in “Survivor” history.

In it, Richard Hatch realizes that winning the final challenge will ultimately cost him the game. If he takes Rudy Boesch to the finals, the former Navy SEAL will clobber him. If he takes Kelly Wiglesworth, the jury will turn on him for stabbing his friend in the back. So, he quit. It ultimately won him a million dollars and turned me into a “Survivor” fan for life.

The More Whatnot ‘Community’ Contest Winner Is…

September 6, 2011

I had a team of hardcore “Community” fans help me with the judging of the contest, and we’ve come to the conclusion that the winner of a “Community” Season 1 DVD is…Will Baer. Here’s his winning entry…

“Well usually on Thursday, a little before 8 I mix up a batch of riot punch, then I drink that and go work with my black surgeon best friend at the local hospital, and after work I like find banana stands and burn them down”

Apparently any fan of “Always Sunny,” “Scrubs” and “Arrested Development” should be watching “Community.” Congrats to Will and thanks to everyone who entered.
