I have a very creative mind that is very limited technically. I can see something small in nature like a leaf or a bug on the ground and my brain synapses start sparking. A million different lightning bugs go off in my head. I can immediately think of a hundred different metaphor's on how a … Continue reading How Did We Go From 1’s and 0’s to Hollywood Blockbuster’s?
"Were you born in a barn?" my mom used to ask me when I was a big pig growing up. I can honestly answer you a no on that, but I can say that I spent the weekend in one...for a wedding. As I wrote a few months ago, I can't stand weddings. I am … Continue reading Glitterally the Worst
I've always been a fan of not light. Light is kind of a jerk when you are trying to sleep. I'm one of those people that has to have it vampire dark for me sleep. Also have you ever been to a city a night? Always blinking, distracting me, trying to get me to … Continue reading Lights are so distracting Friday Giftures
One of the weird things I miss when not having a job was the crack of dawn (just kidding, way before that) drives on the freeway and the steering wheel punching drives home. You can just feel the stench of the city in the air, the hustle and bitter of drivers having a hard day, … Continue reading Seeing the Signs
First of all, I know talking about pets is a sensitive subject, which is why I plan on talking about it. I know some people's life depend on their pets, maybe because they are a crazy cat lady, or because their dog cares about them way too much, but this rhinoceros pet owning is … Continue reading Letting the Cat out of the Bitter Bag
When I was in college, my best friend and I would go door to door to random girl's apartments and knock. When they answered we would introduce ourselves and then try to make them laugh by telling them stupid puns. Every once in a while we would get a chuckle or a courtesy laugh, and … Continue reading Drive by Comedian
As the regulars of this podcast know, whoops, blog know, I am always on time. Just kidding, but really I usually post in the early morning, depending on where you live. Where I live is right here and that is the most important. But you know, lateness is greatness, which is why I am … Continue reading Lateness is Greatness Friday Giftures
I guess I should probably tell you that I finally got a job and just as there are perks (I get paid money to do things) there are also the regular non-perks. The main non-perk is the same non-perk that almost every other job has. Other people. If it wasn't for that and the whole … Continue reading If People Were Named After Their Personalities Like Me
Ever since I was young, I had a little bit(ter) of a rebellious streak in me. I've always had an issue with authority because I don't like people telling me what to do. I've never had a boss I didn't want to rebel against, a parent or authority figure that liked to tell me what … Continue reading NoWayImGoodBro
Halloween is always kind of an awkward time for me. Especially at work. You never quite know if people are going to dress up and if no one does and you do, it is the most awkward thing ever. Then there is the really uncomfortable aspect about your costume. If you wear one that makes … Continue reading Bread And Bitter
There is something I have never understood about Halloween. It is one the biggest in this country, where I've heard the most money is spent, and somehow it isn't really a holiday? At least from what I have heard, a holiday consists of me getting the day off. And as long as I can remember, … Continue reading The Bitter Transforming Pizza
This blog of mine is normally a funny, sarcastic, bitter take on the world and most of you expect that. Today, however, I’m going to reblog a serious post. Rebecca wrote about a documentary she watched on Demi Lovato, who is a singer I really like. I thought this was a well written post about mental illness and some of its stigmas. Mentally illness doesn’t doesn’t care if we are rich or poor, young or old, white or black, male or female. And many people suffer silently because mental illness symptoms don’t show like physical illnesses. I hope you will at least read Rebecca’s post and possibly watch the documentary like I’m going to. And don’t forget about people you might know who suffer from mental illness.
Pop singer Demi Lovato’s documentary Simply Complicatedwas released on YouTube on October 17th. While she’s been open about her drug and alcohol addictions and eating disorder in the past, this doc provides a more detailed timeline of Demi’s journey from addiction to recovery to relapse and back to recovery once more.
This documentary is unapologetic, raw, and in-your-face. It has some eerie similarities to director Asif Kapadia’s brilliant 2015 Best Documentary Feature, Amy, which documents the life and tragic death of British singer Amy Winehouse.
Ironically, in Simply Complicated, Demi references Winehouse as someone she idolized growing up. In a journey back to Demi’s house, she shows a poster she’d made as a child that she kept in her closet, plastered with photos of celebrities she wanted to look like. There, among the models and skinny celebrities, was Winehouse, most likely…

When I was getting ready to leave work last night, there was a little paper sign on the door. "Halloween party in the break room at 1:30 pm. Prizes for contests, food, etc." It kind of shocked me, because Halloween just sneaked up on me. Which I know is hard to believe for some … Continue reading Sneaky Bitter Friday Giftures
I have two brothers and when we were growing up, we caused my parents a few headaches. Whether it was climbing on the roof of our house, jumping off the staircases to the level below, or throwing pencils at each others legs and making them stick (ask my brother about the graphite poisoning I … Continue reading Bitter Noise Pollution
As you saw last week, I am bitterly jealous of people that can draw/do art things. When I came upon this blog a year ago or so, I knew I had to follow. She always does funny drawings and stories to go along with what they do in their lives. I always get a kick out of them. Not it is your turn to follow and enjoy. Make sure them give them some love and follow, comment, like.
Apparently this has happened on more than one occasion. Poor Angel…
And speaking of birthdays…HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ANGEL!!!
You are truly a superhero in our eyes. Thank you for being such a wonderful husband, friend, and life partner to me, and for being an exceptional, involved, and ever-present father to our beautiful daughter. May this year be even better than the last!!!
When my kids were young they liked to watch Disney shows. While Disney is really good at making future stars out of these young actors and actresses, they are really bad at making them funny. At least at that age. The shows are terrible. And they certainly aren't funny unless you are a kid who … Continue reading Bitter Laugh Tracks
The other day, I was going for a walk on one of the many trails around here and I ran into a cat. It was one of those bitter looking cats that look like Grumpy Cat. It had a scrunched up face and appeared to not give a care in the world that I … Continue reading Freaky Friday Giftures
As amazing as it might seem, I was less old than I am now. Also, as amazing as it might seem, I was also in much better shape. One of the most bitter things I ever experienced was the old metabolism betraying me, because I was just as lazy then as I am now, but … Continue reading Offensive Driving Bitterness
On Friday October 13th, my son turned 10 years old. Of course we missed out on a huge opportunity by not having him born 3 years earlier and him becoming a Jason, Freddy or Pinhead. Regardless, since I am free during the days for a few more days, I was tasked with going to Panda … Continue reading Four Square Bitterness
One of the things I am most bitter about in life is that I was not given the ability to draw. I have already been surpassed in my artistic ability by my 13 year old daughter. Though to be honest, she surpassed me when she was 2 and first learned to draw. My stick figures still need a lot of work.
Anyways, Joanne here combines two things that make me bitterly jealous, so I thought I would show you just how good she is at both drawing and humor, things which I both suffer at embarrassingly. Make sure to check out many of her other posts which are funny too.
Autumn is an exciting time of year for my dogs, mostly because there is a significant increase in the number of squirrels running around in the park.
When my dogs encounter a squirrel, they experience a level of excitement beyond that which humans can cognitively process.
I could win the lottery, be offered a free luxury round-the-world cruise and discover the secret to eternal youth, all within the space of a single hour, and still not come close to scraping the surface of the excitement that my dogs experience when they see a squirrel.
Upon seeing a squirrel, my dogs become so excited that they are no longer completely in control of their bodies.
All they can do is run around, barking manically, their movements and actions controlled by the all-consuming power of their base instincts
At this time of year, the squirrels are collecting food in preparation for winter…
