john be gone

the 15 minutes of nightly bliss that john from cincinnati gave me has come to an end, mega bummer. it's a great series and it gave me a lot of laughs. it only lasted one season and that is a crying shame. there were parts of it that rival the big lebowski for making me laugh out loud but all things must pass and now it's time to decide on what to watch for my nightly 15 minutes of bliss.  john from cincinnati is a tough act to follow. the other decision i'm facing is how long should i wait before watching john again. 2 years?

fuck me, a few minutes ago i was totally flummoxed as to what to watch but jesus came through for me again. that son of bitch really knows his tv.  the rip from cincinnati and i will be watching.............................................

the mighty boosh!

the big fuck me at the moment is income tax.  i'm one of the holdouts who refuses to file on-line. it's certainly a lot easier to just enter the figures and let the computer do the rest but i get a better of grasp of what's going on by sitting down and putting pen to paper. it's crucial to have your ducks in a row should the taxman decide to ask a few questions. but if the taxman does ask too many questions, here's my standard answer:

this is very complicated case, maude.  you know, a lotta ins, a lotta outs, a lot of what-have-yous. and uh, a lot of strands to keep in my head, man.

billy says he loves you sons of bitches.


  1. Hah, that was a great line of the Dude! Do you remember him saying "Don't say people, I'm doing business here" to Walter? I always wondered where "Don't say people" came from, it sounds like hippy talk.

  2. i don't remember him saying don't say people but a quick google shows him saying don't say "peep" to walter. the dude can't be distracted when doing business.

    the coen brothers don't think gentiles can walk and chew gum at the same time.

  3. Quotes from The Big Lebowski really do help deal with life sometimes. Glad you found a replacement for your nightly 15 minutes of bliss. Take care, Mr. Rosewater.

  4. Happy Friday, Mr. Rosewater.

  5. thank you for your continued support mr shife

  6. Everyone should attempt to live life in their own "The Dude" fashion. Everyone would feel both more robust and a helluva lot more relaxed!

    I have been told that the greener life helps one more readily attain a "The Dude" status. Eventually I hope to sample said to see if the reality is as delightful as I envision. I have had ample practice with technique via pipe tobacco, so I hope I will be a ster pupil of the art if I do eventually get to try said leaf.

    1. to be the dude, you just abide. and don't get all hot and bothered if someone crosses the line in a league game.

  7. Taxes.... Damn.... I better check to see how ours are shaping up. It is my wife's turn to do the nonsense this year. I haven't even thought about them.... And not having heard anything now worries me.

  8. What's new, Mr. Rosewater? Hope all is well.
