My list of failed bands….

And why you should come to the KBUT Kampout! The 2017 KBUT Kampout is coming up in a month and will once again be right around my birthday!  Last year I served as emcee and man-oh-man (and man-oh-woman, #equality) what a great day at Ibar Ranch.  Don’t judge but: I’m generally not a fan of […]

Me Like Microphones….

  And me good with words too I did a fun exercise at the Ibar Ranch with the audience this week. I asked everyone, in chorus, to yell one-word or phrase related to something they’re grateful for. It was a fun activity and most people likely yelled “family”, “money”, “beer”, or “sex” or “live music”. […]

Triumph and Tragedy: Hockey Life

Post Image

Marrying truth with fiction… The ice rink of Gunnison, Colorado is home to many a triumph and many a tragedy.  Rec League hockey at it’s finest and the human animal at it’s worst.  Ice skating brings out the grace and fluidity of movement in human form – but hand and ice-skater a stick and ask […]

Running from Tony: Embracing Discomfort

Post Image

Growth through embracing discomfort… I’ve had a wonderful winter back in the Gunnison Valley after 3+ years in Hawaii.  My time in Hawaii gave me many unique opportunities to embrace discomfort.   As a professional I progressively advanced my fundraising and public speaking skills and reconnected with my youth in poverty through the most powerful mission I’ve […]

Thanks Mom! (Alternate Title: Don’t Read Into It Dad)

Poverty is powerful I’ve recently made a significant transition out of the largely non-profit/environmental track I had been on for most of 18 years.  Moving over to a organization (who paid to remain unnamed) with a focus on children was a big shift.  Granted I’ve been a foster parent twice (overall grade B-) and part […]

Red Noses & Blue Doors

I left Hawaii and one of the most powerful missions back in July. Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii serves over 15,000 youth each year on the islands of Oahu and Kauai and the kids are AMAZING.  Lifting up impoverished youth is at the core of the mission and inside the Clubhouses the kids find a safe […]

I’m going to be a misbehaving senior….citizen.

Someone took battery charger and cables out of my car recently. They perps hit multiple cars in the parking lot and someone said off-handedly: “Probably teenagers” From my experience that’s not always true.  Once, in St. Croix a “crackstafarian” (quick definitions: rastafarian = dreads + marijuana, crackstafarian = dreads + crack cocaine, not to be […]

International Literalist Society: Use Caution!

A plea to you, loyal readers.  Don’t take life too literally…. Some people do. For the afflicted  similes, metaphors, idioms and figurative language make the world a dangerous and confusing place.  That’s why in 2015 I formed the International Literalist Society. Our first attempts to help those burdened with only a literal understanding of the world were a complete […]

When Doves Cry

Post Image

I just watched Supermench: The Legend of Shep Gordon (a Maui resident) and it’s a great movie. Shep is the manager for many a famous band back in the 1960s including Jimi Hendrix, Janice Joplin, Alice Cooper and Pink Floyd (for 9 days!) and Luther Vandross. Once of Shep’s best publicity stunts was intentionally breaking […]

Astrology…A Foundation of Miscommuncation

Once…long ago…a young boy named Nativus Purus and his drunkard ancestor Uncle Vinum Maximus chatted about the great stories of Greek mythology and the astrological signs in the night sky.  Uncle Vinum was deep into thought an also deep into his goblet already…the conversation went something like this…. Nativus Purus: Uncle Vinum? Explain the history of our […]
