....and so, the influx of impressionable young minds return, and it's up to us to make sure they stay on the straight, and narrow.

Remember people, it takes a village.

Rockin’ Out With My Connery Out!

• August 13th, 2014

The lazy days of summer have officially kicked in.

Walking around this town for the last couple of days have been sublime.

Street theater is at a minimum.

The calm before the storm of when the kids come back to school, and the beige people come back from their vacations.

These are the few precious weeks when the city is truly ours.

We are the people who hold down the RVA fort!

Let's get one more blowout in before they return, and we have to go back to more "compromising" ways of life.

Yes my friends, it's time to Rock Out With Our Connery's Out!

POP Goes America’s Happiest City

• July 30th, 2014

10509489_673830276024865_481644926945750


Last week, this report found that richmond Va. is America's happiest city.

While that may be debateable, we'll test the limits of happiness tonight to see if it is, in fact, possible to be TOO happy, and if being TOO happy is even enjoyable.

My guess is only the PUREST of hearts will be able to sustain the level of happiness required to live in America's happiest city for 2 solid hours.

The rest of you, those with less than pure hearts, will not be able to handle the kind of happiness we here in RVA take for granted on a daily basis, and your weak, feeble, and clearly inferior hearts will, indeed, EXPLODE!
