In Case No One Told You, You Look Fine.

Posted by on Sep 11, 2014

You look fine. You look like you. If no one has told you lately, or ever, let me. You are fine. You look like you are supposed to look—and it is perfect. Perfect is a loaded word,...

Domestic Violence and the NFL

Sep 18, 2014

By Mo Breden There is no way that I could write my blog post this week without addressing domestic violence and the NFL.   I look at Janay Palmer Rice and I fear for her, I worry about what he’s done to her prior to the elevator, I worry about what he will do to her in the future, and I know she is more susceptible to his violence now than she ever was.  I...

The Challenges of Work-Life Balance During a Kickstarter Campaign

Sep 17, 2014

By Jeremy Scheinberg Most people think a Kickstarter (or other crowdfunding) campaign begins the moment you click “Launch.”  If only it were that simple!  The unfortunate reality is that a Kickstarter campaign has three parts – the Pre-Launch, the Campaign, and (hopefully) the Post-Campaign (otherwise known as, how do you efficiently spend a pile of money...

Writer’s Block

Sep 16, 2014

Today’s column did not go as planned. This week I intended to do a column about Heather Langenkamp in Wes Craven’s “New Nightmare” but I cannot figure out what the column wants to be. I am having a case of writer’s block which is a horrible thing when you are a writer. So instead I am writing a column on the fact the Halloween (my...

In Case No One Told You, You Look Fine.

You look fine. You look like you. If no one has told you lately, or ever, let me. You are fine. You look like you are supposed to look—and it is perfect. Perfect is a loaded word, isn’t it? I could literally HEAR your eyes rolling as you read that line. “I don’t look perfect! I have “x” pounds to lose, my boobs are too “x”, my flab is too floppy.” Etc. But...

A land without corn

Sep 10, 2014

This week I’m going to cook as opposed to just heating up a bunch of stuff and tossing it together (as my friend Peregrine once said of my cooking skills).  I miss all types of Mexican food.  I don’t think the cuisine exists on the African, European, or Asian continents.  Admittedly, I have high standards.  I’ll never forget this drive thru in...

Joan Rivers: Leave Them Laughing

Joan Rivers: Leave Them Laughing

Sep 9, 2014

1:17 pm September 4, 2014 Joan Rivers passes away at age 81. For everyone who loved Joan even at age 81 she was taken too soon. She was a comedy legend that paved the way for so many of the female comedians we have today. Joan was a dynamic woman and we are going to look back on her legacy and her life. This is a tribute to Joan, a lady with razor sharp wit who...

The Google Game and Other Amusing Things To Waste Time Online

Sep 8, 2014

Are there times you sit there staring at the computer screen bored with social media or work?  I can say that this happens to me once in a while. I have a solution and I am going to share some things that can kill some time. I can’t promise that these things will stimulate you intellectually but they will certainly amuse and pass some time in a pleasant...

The Illusion of Control

The Illusion of Control

Sep 4, 2014

By Mo Breden   I’ve had a great deal of difficulty recently putting my thoughts together, thus the absence of blog postings. I’m still not sure I can, but I made a commitment to provide blog postings so heeereee we go!!!! Part of my problem, I think, is the illusion of control. You do know that control is an illusion. I’m talking about anything beyond the...
