    Very funny Mad Magazine comic posted on Daily Kos Posted by krudman at 09 37 AM Comments 0 The Manliest Tool Embarking on a single handed garage renovation project I had only destruction on my mind last weekend So off I go to the home depot for this bad boy Why is this the manliest tool Because it s basically a bare blade up to 6 inches of thumb severing thigh slashing live wire cutting surface area jiggering up and down at your whim When you re using this thing you never sense resistance there s no Honey do you really think you should be doing that without help very little in the way of fore brain activity at all Instead you feel empowered encouraged to go the extra mile hell you ve got the thing out you ve got the metal cutting blade in why not keep going Old galvanized sprinkler pipes laying around Cut em up and make it the trash guy s problem Need to answer the age old question How do you throw out a trash can Think about it Just cut it up did that too How about a window in that wall Just start

    means to me that I was really concerned that strangers wouldn t like it Posted by krudman at 06 18 AM Comments 0 June 23 2004 Timberrrrrrr June called me yesterday at work to say that the fig tree in our backyard had fallen over The trunk basically looked like it had snapped off at the ground The thing took our cable with it so we had to get TimeWarner out to restore my beloved Road Runner This tree was over 40 feet tall and must have been 25 years old When we bought the house the figs on the tree were ripe and we would stop by the house and walk around it peeking in the windows wondering if we would be able to afford it We would eat the figs from the tree and they tasted to us of the good life In some ways we bought the house because of the tree and looked forward to the figs each summer We had talked in recent years about maybe taking the tree out it was too big for our small yard and June wanted to try other things but we just didn t have the heart to take it down Now that it s laying across the backyard waiting for its date with a chainsaw and a chipper Emma is lobbying for us to plant some other kind of fruit tree in its place Posted by krudman at 09 52 PM Comments 0 June 11 2004 What I Say Can t believe Ray Charles is gone I had two Ray Charles LPs throughout college which I played to death What d I Say and a Greatest Hits package Just about the best singer I can imagine While everyone else is remembering Reagan I ll be thinking about Brother

    the 21st Centry Gibson seemed like a very nice absent minded professor but Wagner was fricking brilliant as I expected the author of Force Majeure to be Bought lots of books for everyone but myself of course including this extremely cool coloring book for Nate from a company that normally sells only via the web called First Cut Books They also had these wicked neat notebooks for sale called Moleskines Evidently everyone from Matisse to Bruce Chatwin couldn t live without them I bought one with graph paper in it for June s garden sketches Now the oddest thing I noticed was the fact that the Jews for Jesus had descended on the place to proselytize Tons of folks who looked like my people typical Ashkenazic Jewish features hair etc but with the vapid smiles of the recently converted I just wanted get right up in their faces and shout IFYOU REAJEWFORJESUSTHENYOU REACHRISTIANDEALWITHIT Maybe if they keep Jew in their organization s name it helps them recruit Either that or they don t offend their grandmas that way Sheesh Posted by krudman at 09 31 AM Comments 0 April 20 2004 a shout out Maybe it has to do with turning 40 last week but this one struck home It s David Sedaris talking to a graduating class at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and quoted in James McManus great poker and murder book Positively Fifth Street There is no escaping the people who love you especially not today Their gift is wrapped in a complex difficult paper and tied with a ribbon five miles longer than your patience When you open the package remember to look surprised and behave with grace as theirs is the gift that brought you here and will accompany you kicking and
