and a shoutout to the glam squad


id like to thank all the angels and saints all around me

who always have my back even though i dont always deserve it

or ask for it


the good book says ask and ye shall receive

seek and ye shall find

is there anything better than when someone you secretly love

sidles up to you and whispers

tony you know what i really want, i want…


and then they tell you.

straight up.

no esp required.

no palm readers, steamy cauldrons, or mind  reading


it’s so nice and refreshing, especially when you can say, is that all baby?

same goes with the lord. you know hes got things to do too.

so if you say i would like a so and so in the whatchamacallit

he might say sheeeeeeeeet id actually like to pull that off

and poof


now youve stoked the lord.


so id like to thank the good spirits in my life for all of their stokes in 2013


it was about as unexpected as i could have ever imagined, both good and bad.

i had the longest spring break since forever.


and it ended exactly at the right time and at the right place


so thank you for getting me here and for being there along the way.

the steelers got robbed yesterday but at least the nfl admitted it today

KC vs SD

when san diego beat kansas city yesterday, the chargers knocked out the steelers.

the bolts beat the chiefs thanks to a missed field goal that should have never been.

the chargers lined up wrong, right in front of an official, but were not flagged.

today the nfl admitted it, which was nice

 With 0:08 remaining in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers, Kansas City faced a fourth-and-12 from the San Diego 23. The Chiefs attempted a 41-yard field that was no good,” the league said in a statement. “On the play, San Diego lined up with seven men on one side of the snapper. This should have been penalized as an illegal formation by the defense.

Rule 9, Section 1, Article 3(b)(1) of the NFL Rule Book (page 51) states that ‘No more than six Team B players may be on the line of scrimmage on either side of the snapper at the snap.’ The rule was adopted this year as a player safety measure.

The penalty for illegal formation by the defense is a loss of five yards. This rule is not subject to instant replay review. Had the penalty been assessed, it would have resulted in a fourth-and-7 from the San Diego 18 with 0:04 remaining, enabling the Chiefs to attempt a 36-yard field goal.

but they won’t get the teams together and play those 8 seconds again. that interests me.

you have made a mistake, you miraculously admit it, but you won’t resolve it?

these are professional football players and officials. they shouldn’t have anything else on their schedules.

play the 8 seconds tonight on monday night football.

but no. some humans just feel totally ok wandering in mediocrity and letting excuses prevail over excellence.

cant wait to be nfl commissioner.

the quote of the week came from the new pope who stopped believing in Hell

pope francis

“We must recognize that religious truth evolves and changes. Truth is not absolute or set in stone. Even atheists acknowledge the divine. Through acts of love and charity the atheist acknowledges God as well, and redeems his own soul, becoming an active participant in the redemption of humanity,” Pope Francis told the Third Vatican Council on Christmas. Or if you’re new Pope, Casual Thursday.

“Through humility, soul searching, and prayerful contemplation we have gained a new understanding of certain dogmas. The church no longer believes in a literal hell where people suffer. This doctrine is incompatible with the infinite love of God. God is not a judge but a friend and a lover of humanity. God seeks not to condemn but only to embrace. Like the fable of Adam and Eve, we see hell as a literary device. Hell is merely a metaphor for the isolated soul, which like all souls ultimately will be united in love with God” the Pope declared.

And then he dropped the mic.

Sadly it was a fake quote.

But if it frees you to do what your loving heart desires, you should live by it.

find myths, then break them


one of the reasons i am often misunderstood is im no good at powerpoint

nor do i care to be.

to me there is only the scoreboard and peoples smiles.

if somehow you are able to win on the scoreboard


everyone is smiling, from the heart, during the process

then you shouldn’t have to be any good at powerpoint.

many moons ago when i sold electronics on commission the bad salesmen

had all these reasons why certain days or months were “slow”

implying that magic has a season and success is a hot streak.

online i met people who honestly believed there was a good time and a bad time

to put things on the internet

as if we arent constantly curious to find delightfully interesting things.

give the people good stuff as soon as you can

and they will smile back at you.

frost bandit, busblog man of the year

hopes santa dies in a fire

at first glance one could easily look at wednesdays tweet from “Frost” and think

this is why the terrorists hate us: we whine about getting an inferior game system

instead of the amazing gift kris kringle shimmied down our fireplace.

but on deeper inspection it had this blogger thinking

in what ways am i like @FrostBandit, and how can i improve on that in the coming new year?

do i look at a glass half full and think

“glass? wheres my red solo cup”?

i”ll work on accepting the good tidings with joy in 2014

instead of complaining via twitter that it wasn’t exactly what i thought i wanted.

cuz for all i know it might be better.

so, thank you @FrostBandit!
