Shallow Fake

A while back I wrote about how artificial intelligence was used to fabricate Johnny Cash signing ‘I’m a Barbie Girl.’ It sounded authentic, making it creepy and unsettling. Like most technology, AI can be used to create amazing things. Unfortunately, some people use it for nefarious purposes. In addition to the Man in Black, AI […]

Breathless

I’ve mentioned numerous times that I have the greatest wife in the world. One (of so, so many) reasons she is so great is that she is able to look past my crooked nose, a result of breaking it four times. Another related reason is for years she has put up with my incessant snoring. […]

Bean Counters

For the last few years, all of my buddies have insisted that I watch ‘Yellowstone,’ stating it is a phenomenal show. The series focuses on John Dutton, played by Kevin Costner. Dutton and his children run the Yellowstone ranch, which has been in his family for generations and is the largest in Montana. The Duttons […]

Split Personality

Ever since high school, my buddies and I have gotten together to watch Packer games. We have a goofy tradition that if someone makes the foolish mistake of jinxing a part of the game, such as by saying a Packer field goal attempt is a “gimme” and it’s miss, a wedgie is forthcoming. One of […]

Shockingly, the chocolate bar would fall into the jar of peanut butter and the […]

Asleep on the Job

One of the common themes in employment today is that employees are committed to finding a better work/life balance. As a result, they are on the job for fewer hours. As an employer, I’m not particularly fond of this trend, as there is always lots of work to do. When my staff complains about my […]

Dream Home Turned to Nightmare

In 2018, pop singer Katy Perry was featured on ‘American Idol’ as a judge. For the last three years, however, she has had to appear in court in front of an actual judge, over the purchase of her dream home. In May of 2020, Carl Westcott, the founder of 1-800-Flowers, bought a mansion in Montecito […]

All Wet

I used to love drinking Mountain Dew. The soda marketed strongly to young males, as their commercials featured dudes competing in extreme sports who stayed hydrated by “doing the Dew.” The campaign worked and it spawned countless imitators. The latest is arguably Liquid Death, a canned water company whose tagline is “murder your thirst.” The […]
