Top Ten Punk Driving Songs

There is nothing like getting on the open road with the sunroof open and speeding to some really heart pounding songs.  So to follow on from Love and Life Changing Punk Songs I present my favorite driving songs. Create your own playlist and get out on the road right now and …

So Does Sarah

And just in case there are any worries that I’m taking Rachel as my girl, we know she is still The Consul’s, and Sarah Shahi is still my main girl.  Very hard not to put Sarah on a pedestal.  Beautiful, funny, sexy and talented.  And don’t forget her new show, Reverie, …

Rachel Still Has It

Given that I’ve been in a nostalgic mood tonight I thought we’d see how Rachel is fairing.  This photo is from last year, and I think I can safely say that Rachel is looking is beautiful as ever.  I might be getting older, but not so much with the rutting …

Popularity

I thought I’d check in with Google to see how we’re doing since firing up the site again earlier this year.  Firstly this is no 2013 – in those days  we were really cranking,  but we have a few visitors that are not in Texas or England so clearly some …

Top Ten Punk Life Changing Songs

So continuing my thread that I began here I wanted to highlight some punk songs that really changed my world.  You have to remember back in 1977 I was 14 years old and very impressionable.  I didn’t have an older brother or a cool dad or The Consul to steer and …

No More Heroes

When I was a teenager and before I got into the greatest live band of all time, The Clash (of course), I was really into those bad boys of punk, The Stranglers.  A lot of bands at the time really cared about their image and what people thought about them, but …

Control

The worst word when you become an adult is: “Control”.  When you are a kid you can lose control all the time and the consequences are minor, but as you become an adult, particularly if you are a parent or have a high profile profession, you really don’t have the …

Happy Thanksgiving

So today is Thanksgiving in the USA and nothing says Thanksgiving like doing shots of Patron Tequila with your wife and 22 year old boy 🙂  In fact I have not had any Tequila since my dreaded trip to Cancun in July, 1992 – that was 25 years ago.  But when my …

Captain Marvel

So after the exciting Kong movie with Brie Larson I’ve watched a few of Brie’s movies and you can imagine my excitement when I saw that she will be playing Captain Marvel. If there is one thing I know all Drinking Men like it is their women wearing super hero …

She’s Out Of My League

Continuing my viewing of easy to watch movies without anything too deep to distract you (just like Baywatch back in September) I recently really enjoyed watching the Romantic Comedy: She’s Out of My League. I found it to be a 104 minutes of stress free viewing with the very beautiful Alice …

Top Ten Punk Love Songs

So before The Consul takes over all musical lists on this blog I thought I’d start my own little list of the Top Ten Punk songs.  Here we go with some of my favorite Punk Love Songs:

Twin Liquors Right on The Money

I’ve now picked-up three monthly consignments of beer from Twin Liquors and the latest one slipped right into Helga with no issues.  I even purchased six bottles of Champagne whilst I was there so everyone is winning.  It is so nice to finally have found a company that actually wants my …

Helga Is Here

I have always wanted a real beer fridge – one where you can see the beers lined up like soldiers ready to serve 24×7.  And in a stroke of genius during the year long kitchen renovation I mentioned to my wife that what I wanted out of all of this madness …

What about 1977?

I commend The Consul for his in-depth treatise on the greatest decade of music, but I don’t know if it is because he is a year older or that he really loves 1967 so much (and don’t get me wrong some amazing albums did come out in 1967), but I …

Simpler Times

Way before I was born, Marilyn Monroe was beautiful and took away all of our pain.  This photo is from 1954 and is a beauty.  I know we are not better off today, with all of our iPhones, computers, social media, and almond milk.  I can only imagine what Marilyn, …

Bend Over!

So I went for my 6+ year physical today.  There is nothing I hate more than going to see the Doctor, but I knew how happy my wife would be so I made an appointment as an early Christmas present – yes I’m a giver. Here’s the problem – it …

Forgot The Fucking Milk!

You can always rely on The Consul to bring the smiles.  One of the other great benefits of aging is you forget more and more things, not just the milk.  Luckily it means you get more exercise, and in that way you start to see the bigger picture – we …

Worship is not Disrepect

So as I look out at the world you can’t help but wonder where things went so badly wrong.  It seems if you are a successful white male you are almost certainly a rapist, or at the very least a sexual predator.  I can only imagine what people make of …

It’s Not All Bad

I feel as though some of my recent posts have been a little “Debbie Downer”, which wasn’t my intent.  Just sometimes life does wear you down a little.  But it is not all bad and tonight my wife and I started watching Seasons 3 of Game of Thrones and The …

That’s Just What Jesus Said Sir

So if you are a real Python fan you’ll know what Brian says before this quote: That’s right: “There’s no pleasing some people.”  And ain’t that the truth.  Sometimes I feel no matter how hard I work or bend over some people are just not satisfied.  I try not to …

Goodbye Hugh

Hard to imagine a world where Playboy magazine did not exist.  I don’t know much about Hugh Hefner but dying at 91 with a 31 year old wife by his side I think he had a good innings.  I know every real drinking man has enjoyed his product and I’m …

Goodbye Tom

Wow it really seems that the greats are popping off sooner and sooner.  I don’t know if this is because I’m getting older or not, but either way 66 is too damn early to lose a great artist like Tom Petty.  I literally was just talking about Tom Petty in …

The Final Leg

So when this year began I had a number of things planned to celebrate our Twenty Fifth Wedding Anniversary: 25 Years Later Kitchen Renovation Hell! First Class Max Tomorrow (today in fact) we drive to the Woodlands to see Matchbox Twenty as the final leg in our celebration.  Rob Thomas …

Quality Acting But Still No Oscar?

So I’ve been watching a bunch of Jessica Chastain movies and I must say she has me all hot and bothered – she is an extremely talented actress and sexy too (I’m pretty sure the two are related).  I’ve watched these movies recently: The Debt Lawless Zero Dark Thirty Miss …

WORK is a Four Letter Word!

When you are a kid you think your parents have it all sussed out and you can’t wait to become an adult – it looks so amazing: no school, no chores, loads of spending money, no one telling you what to do, … The wise kids realize before they become …
