Friday, January 22, 2021 – DAY 3 of the Biden-Harris first term
JOE BIDEN AND KAMALA HARRIS WON THE 2020 ELECTION!

EsOTETvXMAIICaL

“GOOD MORNING AMERICA, HOW ARE YOU?”

11:30am: Well, GOOD MORNING! It’s DAY 3 of the Biden-Harris first term.
TRUMP CAN’T KILL US ALL TODAY! OR TOMORROW! OR EVER!
There is a huge sense of relief knowing there is a sane man with his finger on the Nuclear Football! He won’t kill us on whim, or during a narcissistic psychopathic paranoid episode, or after a drug-fueled night of hookers and blow.
There is a huge sense of relief knowing that there is a Federal Plan to contain the CoronaVirus after ONE YEAR OF GENOCIDE! The GOP Traitors NEVER HAD A PLAN! They sold stock and did shady deals for PPE and respirators, and THE VACCINE!
TOTAL FAILURE THAT COSTS TENS OF THOUSANDS OF US CITIZENS THEIR LIVES!

We spent the night finishing and publishing our previous Blog Post, and setting this Blog Post up. We started just after midnight, then we had a cup of espresso after 6:00am and fell asleep for a few hours. The dogs got fed and went outside. We got the newspapers and the mail.
We drank another cup of espresso, spent an hour on TWITTER sending out “Traitor” memes, and now were recapping the morning. We might be getting hungry….
DRINK COFFEE. DRINK WATER. (It’s a running theme now)

How it started. How it’s going.
Reverend Raphael Warnock was arrested by US Capitol Police
during a peaceful BlackLivesMatter protest in the Senate Building last year.
Today they escorted the Senator from Georgia to his new offices.

The Senate confirmed Lloyd Austin 93-2 as the next Secretary of Defense, making him the first African-American to head the Pentagon. The two “NO” votes were Josh Hawley and Mike Lee.

President Joe Biden signed Executive Orders and just made a fine speech.
Sen Chuck Shumer gave McConnell the finger. The Impeachment Trial will start Tuesday.

Congress reintroduced a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United.

President Joe Biden nominated Vivek H. Murthy, the surgeon general under President Barack Obama, to be the nation’s new surgeon general. (see below for more about the doctors)

3:15pm: We have HOPE that there will be JUSTICE.

Nancy Pelosi will send the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate on Monday.
THE TRIAL OF DONALD JOHN TRUMP WILL BEGIN ON FEBRUARY 8, 2021.
Senator Chuck Schumer told Mitch McConnell “I’m the Captain now.”

The Trump campaign paid more than $2.7million to persons and firms involved in organizing the Trump January 6th “Stop The Steal” Rally and violent attack on the US Capitol, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

5:50pm: FRIDAY! GOOD SHABBOS!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
We just drank another cup of espresso.
We are watching Dr. Fauci on MSNBC Rachel Maddow’s show.
Dr. Fauci: “I’ve been wanting to come on your show for months and months. You’ve been asking me to come on your show for months and months and it just got blocked. I mean, let’s call it what it is, it just got blocked.”
120565185_4341863679239986_8253701871535877008_n
Not just “refreshing” to hear the TRUTH, it’s such a relief.
NOW THERE IS A PLAN!
NOW THERE IS AN EMERGENCY RESPONSE!
NOW THERE IS SCIENCE AND INTELLIGENCE AND EXPERIENCE!
THERE ARE HEALTH EXPERTS IN CHARGE! (NOT POLITICIANS)
STOPPING THE SPREAD AND CONTAINMENT ARE NOW REAL OBJECTIVES!

410000+ REPORTED US DEATHS as of today. The carnage is nowhere near over!
THESE FEDERAL OFFICIALS AND VICE-PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE MUST BE INVESTIGATED, ARRESTED, AND PROSECUTED! GENOCIDE IS A CRIME!
ALEX AZAR, DEBORAH BIRX, JEROME ADAMS AND ROBERT REDFIELD FAILED!
No Tracking, No Testing, No Plan, No PPE, No Ventilators, No Vaccines, No response.
They allowed the Trump Hydroxycloroquine “Pump and Dump” Con to continue.
They allowed the “Anti-Mask” politics to continue. They supported and lied for Trump.

Alex Azar Jr., the politician, attorney and former pharmaceutical executive, who served as Secretary of Health and Human Services, resigned in disgrace on January 12th.
Deborah Birx retired today. She is no longer part of the Government COVID-19 team.
1. She lied.
2. She amplified Trump’s lies. SHE REPEATED TRUMP’S LIES.
3. She presided over 410,000+ DEAD AMERICANS. GENOCIDE.
3. She PRAISED Trump while he killed us and lied.
US Surgeon General Jerome M. Adams resigned after receiving President (elect) Joe Biden’s request early Wednesday. And dozens of Trump health department appointees also resigned.
Robert Redfiled resigned yesterday and is under investigation for destroying e-mail…..
Stephen Hahn the Trump Commissioner of Food and Drugs, head of the Food and Drug Administration, also resigned. Janet Woodcock was named Acting Commissioner of the FDA by President Joe Biden on January 20, 2021

And Mike Pence. Pence knew. He covered it up for Trump. He lied for Trump. HE IS GUILTY!
FOUR HUNDRED TEN THOUSAND HUMAN BEINGS IN THIS COUNTRY ARE DEAD!

– Trump tried to extort foreign leaders into smearing President Joe Biden – He was Impeached by Congress twice for the Ukraine scandal. And he tried and used the same type of “Quid Pro Quo” with Turkey, other countries in the Middle East, and other foreign leaders.
– Trump tried to sabotage the United States Postal Service with Louis DeJoy and the Board of Governors and interfere with the 2020 election and stop mail-in voting during a pandemic.
– After losing the 2020 election, Trump attempted a coup at the DOJ to overturn the results with two chairs of the Federalist Society practice groups: John Eastman and Jeffrey Clark.
– When that failed, Trump incited a violent attack on the US Capitol that killed a US Capitol Police Officer (and 3 Trump insurrectionists), and an attempted coup against Congress to interfere with the counting of the Electoral College Votes, Murder VP Pence and Members of Congress. Trump watched it on television from The White House.

Baseball Hall of Famer Henry Louis “Hank” Aaron passed away today at the age of 86.
He stomped on the Terra! And he was always humble.
May the Four Winds blow him safely home.

The (Milwaukee and) Atlanta Braves’ “Hammering Hank” the “home run king” broke Babe Ruth’s record for most career Home Runs on April 8, 1974, “going yard” for #715 on a pitch from Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Al Downing. Hank Aaron still holds the record for runs batted in with 2,297 and total base hits with 6,856.
On August 1, 1982, Aaron was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
He received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President George W. Bush.
He was inducted as a Georgia Trustee by the Georgia Historical Society in 2010.

FILE – In this April 8, 1974, file photo, Atlanta Braves’ Hank Aaron holds aloft the ball he hit for his 715th career home in Atlanta. Hank Aaron, who endured racist threats with stoic dignity during his pursuit of Babe Ruth but went on to break the career home run record in the pre-steroids era, died early Friday, Jan. 22, 2021. He was 86. The Atlanta Braves said Aaron died peacefully in his sleep. No cause of death was given. (AP Photo, File)


So, I posted this a year ago…..
And little did I know,
we wouldn’t leave the house again, or go and see a show,
we wouldn’t be eating’ out, or hanging with our friends,
just staying home and dining in, the boredom never ends.
And I just wrote a little poem that I will share with you,
and hope that someday very soon this will again be true:
50510689_2651979514828598_6062581208590581760_n

Be thankful. Be grateful.
Be kind to each other – love one another – support everyone*.
Peace and Love! ❤️

The Dodgers will never win the World Series
until the games are broadcast FREE to the citizen of the City of Los Angeles.

After 10 innings, the Washington Nationals beat the Dodgers with a Grand-Slam 7-3 Victory to advance to the National League Championship.

You spent your BIG money on tickets, parking, food and merchandise.
Or do you have Time-Warner/Spectrum/SportsNet and are you paying for the privilege to watch the games on television?
And the Los Angeles Dodgers let you down again.
Half the population in Los Angeles still can’t watch the games. The City Council is paid off to ignore this problem and the citizens of Los Angeles are still paying for the Dodgers!

Brody Stevens RIP – We Enjoyed It

Steven Brody Stevens RIP

Brody Stevens performs at the last Josh and Josh Show at Bar Lubitsch

Steven Brody Stevens killed himself. He was only 48 years old.
This is horrible and VERY SAD but not unexpected. Mental Illness is not a joke.

52602645_10161496154805300_1091079352843501568_n

Brody Stevens’ Name on the Comedy Store Marquee….. RIP

We didn’t know Brody. We weren’t friends. We never hung out. We did meet Brody when he was a special guest at our comedy show “The 5 and Dime in Studio City”. We watched his reality show when it was broadcast on cable. We knew about “the incident” on Sunset Boulevard that got him arrested. We became a real fan one night when we found his Periscope channel. We saw him perform live at The Josh and Josh Show a few times, but we watched his live performances on Periscope many times, which he shared every night for a long time, before taping his comedy special. We watched his scopes from his apartment, and his “Steps with Steve” scopes, and in his car driving (while drumming) scopes. Most of the time it was just Brody being weird and real, and it was raw, and sometimes it was hard to watch because he was so f*cked up mentally. But mostly it was entertaining and sometimes pure comedy genius. He was a unique talent, brave to broadcast his comedy direct to his fans and haters (who were there with him every night too), and he knew nobody could steal his act, his off-center jokes, and his catch phrases. “Solo scene on a yoga mat”, “Leather exterior”, “Take my mom to lunch and pay half”, “She’s an UBER driver in Coachella”, just f*ckin’ great jokes and if you knew him, you knew all the punchlines and they were still funny everytime. He was also a big presence on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, using each platform creatively to promote himself. I’ve peppered this Blog Post with more of his comedy in tribute to a man who shouldn’t be dead.

“You’re never alone when you’re bipolar.”

EVERYONE KNEW HE WAS “SUICIDAL” and there was nothing they could do…. all of his FRIENDS loved him and his weirdness, but it wasn’t enough.

Brody Stevens Backstage at the Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip

Everyone knew he had mental health issues, it was public knowledge. He did a TV reality show “Brody Stevens, Enjoy It” you can watch on ComedyCentral’s channel and addressed the problems he was experiencing, the drugs that he was prescribed, and his recovery after being “5150” hospitalized for a bipolar incident in 2011. He was very brave to talk about mental illness, his personal issues and his feelings. He was also very frustrated and angry, he was jealous of other people’s success, and he held a grudge hard and was not afraid to air his complaint and grievances publicly. He burned a lot of bridges. He had “run-ins” with the police and other authority figures, and it cost him jobs.

“I’m intense. I get B.O. in the shower.
I get road rage at the car wash” – Steven Brody Stevens

Brody had small speaking roles in films. He was in “The Hangover”, “The Hangover 2” and “Due Date”, but he got cut out of “Funny People”. He “created Chelsea Lately!” Brody was frequent guest on other people’s podcasts and had his own “The Festival of Friendship”.

36027105_1998877400143970_2644122854014058496_n

The Brody Stevens “Festival of Friendship” – You Got It!

He was incredibly funny, he wrote clever jokes, he loved baseball, the Chicago Cubs, and drumming. He loved his mom and her dog, Daisy. He could improvise on a dime and do weird bits that other comedians would never dream of trying, and he was a master of “crowd work” and warm up. “Arms crossed, negative” was a common line as he broke down the audiences’ defense, crashing through the fourth wall, and attacked them with his aggressive comedic persona. Angry Brody unleashing on an unresponsive audience was a sight to behold! It was “in your face” and mostly unapologetic, and designed to get a real reaction. His daily Periscope broadcasts were GENIUS! He made other comics laugh, and tried to make the world a more positive place. He will be missed.

Brody Periscoping from his apartment in North Hollywood

NOTE: Brody often talked about his medication and the drugs he was taking. We read that he had recently changed medication and was taking Lexapro for his depression. He talked about adjusting to it in his last broadcasts and feeling “melancholy”. We looked it up after we heard the news and found reports online from 2005 and 2011 that stated Lexapro (and other drugs like it) can intensify suicidal thoughts and behavior in some cases. Brody was bipolar and the medication may have pushed him over the edge.

Brody Stevens RIP and Kevin Short (West Hollywood Jesus) RIP

 


UPDATE: Thursday, March 7, 2019
There was a big Festival of Friendship Benefit to celebrate Brody’s life (and death) at The Comedy Store on Sunset Blvd in West Hollywood on Tuesday night March 5th.

Brody was so happy about getting his name on The Comedy Store wall, and was always concerned about getting his name on the marquee. Well, his name was on the marquee and his friends and the staff at the store had t-shirts made to honor his catch phrase “ENJOY IT!” (and if you knew him, you just read that in his voice with a special inflection)

His friends and fans gathered together, proceeds were donated to a Mental Health charity, there were flowers and photos, and many fine tributes to Brody. There were also other gatherings at other venues and most everyone had at least one Brody story to tell. There were also fan tributes, online tributes, and a lot of immediate media coverage. When the news broke, Brody was trending #1 on Twitter and Facebook. He would have loved that, too bad he was dead. Don’t try suicide. It just leaves a mess behind.

There is a lot of Brody Stevens available on Comedy Central, YouTube, and Social Media!
Brody was “The Prince of Periscope” and he also had accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. He appeared on television, the internet, numerous podcasts, and posted his own videos online. He was a tortured soul who left behind an enormous body of work for his fans to remember him by. #BrodyIsMeFriend

Rest in Peace Brody.

Today is October 22, 2018 and we are (NOT)HERE.
We haven’t posted much this month. IT seems life has got in the way of our creative self-expression in words here on the inter-wwweb. Too much personal reflection perhaps.

“So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that’s on the worst day of my life.” – Peter Gibbons, Office Space

We no longer work in a cubicle or a fluorescent lit office space, and we are much happier and healthier. As you can see it was a very nice cubicle that became a semi-comfortable workspace. And we even got a little natural sunlight through the windows in the private offices… BUT IT STILL WAS A TOXIC ENVIRONMENT. And don’t even get me started on the commute to West L.A.!

PUPPYTIME!

Yes, we are still boycotting the Los Angeles Dodgers. And they’re in the playoffs again. And they won the pennant again. And they are going to play Boston in the World Series.
(See our previous Blog Posts about the Dodgers Boycott, use the search box^^^^^^)

We really don’t like the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. But the Dodgers and Time-Warner/Spectrum/SportsnetLA have really f*cked the Los Angeles fans.

Reflection of a Road Trip!

It’s the end of September 2018. Tempus fugit!

NFL Football Season! Happy Distraction!
Harder to enjoy since it was politicized.
Harder to enjoy because of systemic (and now overt) racism.
Harder to enjoy because of multiple rule changes.
But we’re still watching, at least for now.

The Los Angeles Dodgers BOYCOTT continues.
As long as the blackout continues, the BOYCOTT continues.
FU TimeWarner/Spectrum/SportsNet and the LA Dodgers Management!
FU DirecTV, Mayor Garcetti and the Los Angeles City Council!
I want to watch my local Major League Baseball team on television.
FU Major League Baseball! THE BOYCOTT CONTINUES!

We binge watched “Maniac” on NetFlix and without revealing any spoilers we just have to say, “WHAT THE FUCK?” That is all.

The Los Angeles Dodgers Blackout/Boycott Continues in 2018!

Go ahead and spend BIG Money on tickets, parking, food and merchandise. Or choose Time-Warner/Spectrum/SportsNet and pay BIG Money for the privilege to watch the games on television in your home. The Los Angeles Dodgers will let you down again!

Boycott! Posted on facebook April 6, 2015

I’m quoted by Steve Lopez in today’s (5-20-2018) Sunday LA Times California section about the Dodgers’ Blackout/Boycott:

32984746_2259516277408259_6549178347274895360_n

L.A. Times Sunday California Section 5-20-2018

“In Encino, Josh Weisel is no longer a Dodgers fan, after 50 years of loyalty to the team, and he is convinced he knows the reason for the Dodgers horrible start this season. ‘It’s Karma’ said Weisel, who is in direct communication with the baseball gods. ‘It’s a curse on the Dodgers, and they won’t win until the fans can watch the games again.’

“In Encino, Josh Weisel said he’s got plenty of entertainment options and the Dodgers are no longer one of them.”

MLB NL Playoff Game 5: NY METS 3 – LA DODGERS 2

Farmer John hotdogs (Dodger Dogs) are gross. And we’re still boycotting the Los Angeles Dodgers, Time-Warner and any of their sponsors:

Dodgers Stadium in Chavez Ravine, Los Angeles, CA

They suckered you in and took your money. You bought your hat, jersey, bobbleheads and other merch. You don’t get to watch the game on TV (FU TWC), and how much did you spend on tickets, parking and overpriced concessions to see them play at Chavez Ravine? And now when it counts, they fold like a bad poker hand and let you down again.

One minute after my post, “Get ready Dodgers fans, it’s choke time….”
the NY Mets hit a home run and went ahead 3-2 and ultimately won the game.

Here’s the “Live Facebooking” with my friend Keith until the end of the game:

dodgerslose1

I’ve been a fan since the original Dodgers Pepsi Fan Club in the 70s. I haven’t been able to watch games on TV for TWO YEARS!

dodgerslose2

Sorry Keith. Dodgers lose again.

Better order that LAPD “Tactical Alert” right now…

FIRE MATTINGLY! END THE BLACKOUT! GO CUBS!

Maybe the games will be televised in Los Angeles next season. I saw the massive Police presence at Dodgers Stadium for Game 5 and had to wonder who pays the tab for the Police and other Los Angeles City Services during a baseball game?

UPDATE: October 28, 2015 – The Dodgers and Don Mattingly have gone their separate ways! The Cubs did not win the playoffs and the first game of the World Series went extra innings with the Kansas City Royals defeating the Toronto Blue Jays. The Blackout and BOYCOTT continues! FU TWC! Who will be the next Dodgers General Manager?

Change is necessary and inevitable. And for restaurants and bars in Ashland, change is a common occurrence. And so it goes, say goodbye to Alex’s and hello to the Brickroom!

I wandered in around 9:30pm on a Tuesday evening. Things were pretty quiet and there was a small crowd at the bar. The end of the Dodgers’ game was on television and the Dodgers were winning (oh, the irony).

I enjoyed being able to walk in and find a seat at the end of the bar. I’m told they have live music, and that the place gets crowded on the weekend or when they have a good band.

I stayed long enough (about an hour) to sip my drink, eat the fries and check out the new joint on the Plaza. It’s a nice place, not a dive bar, and it has a friendly vibe. The food and drink are reasonably priced, they have a good menu and non-alcoholic drink options. The drink was potent, the fries were terrific and the service was good.

There is also an outside patio upstairs on the backside of the building on Guanajuato Lane, a pedestrian walkway along Ashland Creek. It has awnings for shade and a nice view of the water and green landscape of Ashland Creek Park.

BOYCOTT THE LOS ANGELES DODGERS
AND CHARTER/TIME-WARNER SPECTRUM CABLE!!!!!

NOTE: This Blog was UPDATED Thursday, March 9, 2017 to reflect the name change and add more stuff. Vin Scully may have retired, but the blackout continues.

Time/Warner Cable had so much bad press and it’s terrible reputation forced them to rebrand as SPECTRUM CABLE. Don’t be fooled, it’s the same horrible company.

KTLA (channel 5 ) in Los Angeles will be simulcasting 10 games this season.
That’s all. Dodgers fans who don’t have Spectrum are still unable to watch games.
The Boycott is still on!

No World Series again. Maybe next year…… (this was 2015 or 2016)

 

 

UPDATE NOVEMBER 7, 2017:

Well they made it to the World Series in 2017, won the championship and then choked hard in Game 7. Yu Darvish threw the game away in the first inning and they were done.

So this year, you jumped on the band wagon and spent your BIG money on tickets, parking, food and merchandise. Or you have Time-Warner/Spectrum/SportsNet and are paying for the privilege to watch the games on television. Then they let you down again.

Half the population in Los Angeles still can’t watch the games. The City Council is paid off to ignore this problem and the citizens of Los Angeles are still paying for the Dodgers!

F*CK YOU SPECTRUM & SPORTSNET!

CALL IT THE CURSE OF TIME-WARNER! The Dodgers will never win the World Series until the games are broadcast FREE to the citizen of the City of Los Angeles.


 

Road Trip pt. 2 – Daytrip to Santa Cruz, UCSC, McHenry Library & Lunch at the Seabright Brewery

Friday: Daytrip to Santa Cruz!

I was hoping to get an early start and then spend the day in Santa Cruz, but we were delayed and didn’t get going until almost noon. Ann drove us over Highway 17, through the Santa Cruz mountains and up to the University of California, Santa Cruz campus and McHenry Library. Our destination, the Grateful Dead Special Collection.

UC Santa Cruz’s McHenry Library is the home of the Grateful Dead Special Collection. The current exhibit is the “Words of the Grateful Dead”. You’re not supposed to take pictures, but here’s one of the exhibit hall showcasing many literary works. The archive is available online.

The Grateful Dead Archive Online (GDAO) is a socially constructed collection comprised of over 45,000 digitized items drawn from the UCSC Library’s extensive Grateful Dead Archive (GDA) and from digital content submitted by the community and global network of Grateful Dead fans. The Grateful Dead Archive Onlinewww.gdao.org

We toured the rest of the library, wandered around for awhile, and then drove around the campus.

We were hungry and drove through Santa Cruz to the Seabright Brewery in Capitola by the Sea. When we got there, the national league playoff game was on the TV. So, we enjoyed our lunch with a room full of happy San Francisco Giants fans.
