Let’s see. The planet goes through millions of years of transition, man evolves and learns to make music, a group of Irish musicians produce an album, and all so a man with a technologically smart phone and a blog can combine the culmination of these radical elements to manifest a memory in you and subsequent agitation for getting a song stuck in your head by posting this:
I wanna run, I want to hide
I wanna tear down the walls
That hold me inside
I wanna reach out
And touch the flame
Where the streets have no name

Here it is! Spring has sprung. Not the sort of winter we had anticipated so there doesn’t seem to be the relief normally associated with the vernal equinox, but make no mistake, Mother Nature still showcased her radically awesome power. Every spring, we lick our wounds, awaken from hibernations, and persevere as life and love get back into full bloom. Since there’s so much speculation about this being the last one because the Mayan calendar doesn’t continue past this year, I suggest you get a move on and share your radtacular life and gifts. My wife and her mom created a mosaic art piece that I feel could be the official symbol of Spring if we all survive Armageddon. It’s called “Peace and Love,” and when you think about it, peace and love should probably be at the top of everyone’s “action item list” every spring.

Let’s get a round of Sarsaparillas on the house in honor of a great American legend and frontiersman, Wyatt Earp! A devout family man who was entrepreneurial minded, survived the historic shoot out at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, AZ without a scratch, and as rad men of his time were known to do, he was a proficient gambler. He was the wild west’s Don Draper… Only with live ammunition, real buffalo, and a completely different connotation for Indian bingo.

Bonnie Blair is a radfest of fast on ice. As an Olympian she brought home a six pack of medals, including 5 gold. And as a spandex suit adorner she seemed fit to fight crime better than Spiderman himself. I’m not sure if you’ve ever tried to ice skate, let alone do it as fast as humanly possible, but it’s no mistake they developed those spidey suits to protect them.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to everyone! I hope you all have a radically electric holiday and have taken precautions to ensure a safe and healthy recovery. Slainte!

Dreams that occur when we sleep are remarkable, radical, limitless joy rides. They can be delightful, pleasurable, or downright terrifying. They can be filled with insightful vivid images of our current lives or passing glimpses of the future wrapped in a visual enigma. Some provide connections to people long gone while others offer introductions to people we may never see or meet again during any type of consciousness. The one thing all dreams have in common though, is when you think it’s about to have it’s meaning symbolized, or let you revisit a magical place again, or let the night terror boogeyman get you, you wake up and realize it’s a dream.

Goodnight, good children,
Sleep tight with sweet dreams,
May you be a hero and fly,
Or surf cosmic moonbeams.

Though some of you cower,
Oft’ scared of the night,
You fear in your slumber,
You’ll dream a bad fright.

Well remember one thing,
If your dream visions get dark,
There’s no creature in dreamland,
Whose bite’s worse than his bark.

Beware the Ides of March. It’s like a two minute warning to St. Patrick’s Day, a day to pretend you’re Irish and do battle with your liver. If you happen to find yourself on an actual field of battle though because of poor inebriated judgment and don’t have a coat of arms feel free to borrow the rad one I created above, which I borrowed from Julius Caesar. I figure he’s not using it.

It doesn’t take an Einstein to know that Albert Einstein was a radical mind in a radical world thinking radiculous thoughts with his radunculous brain. He said imagination is more important than knowledge, which means you can use your imagination if you don’t know what radunculous means.
Happy Pi Day!

There are villains and bad guys and then there are zombies. The baddest and raddest of all folklore fiends for the mere fact that they are as endless in numbers as the population and can be disposed of in a variety of sadistic skull mutilating ways without wearing on anyone’s conscience. Sure fire radical fun for thriller video games and horror film enthusiasts.
