Idiot A-holes Rule

When I see a sign, a rule or a warning that I think is unnecessary, I  often think of the idiot that did the something that made them put up the sign.  “Please turn knob to open door” was inspired by someone who could not use a handle, at least not without direction.  Idiots don’t […]

It’s Up, It’s Down

I’m sharing this story for comics. I’ve told it privately before but I’m putting it down. I was headlining the Riviera. I usually did the middle spot but they had a cancelation at the last minute. It was very, very, cool. It was a week long gig, two shows many nights. 300 seat room. Often […]

A Letter for ita

It’s funny how we grieve. Over the holidays, two friends, both of whom I’d known for roughly 25 years passed away.  The first was my college room mate and life long buddy, Frank.  His passing was unexpected and devasting for both his family and friends. My plans to go to his funeral were ruined by […]

A Little Christmas Gratitude

As many of my friends are aware, my father and I were involved in an awful traffic collision on Thursday night.   We walked away alive  but are still feeing the effects of three impacts that made the car a compete write off. Last night, I received the good news that the other driver involved […]

This blog is so 905

I never really bought into the Toronto hate thing because resenting success and money is a tired cliche. Having said that, I’ve got to admit, after living in the GTA for two years, with all due to respect to my many friends here, this place really is douche bag central. Toronto is the only place […]

50 Shades of a Jello Tree

There’s a story in the National Post about a CBC executive producer who was willing to ignore complaints about Ghomeshi’s behaviour four years ago.  The Ghomeshi scandal is twisting and turning to a new ugly shade of grey every day.   The serial nature of his violence against women is at the very core of […]

My interview with ex Toronto Maple Leafs Fan

A Toronto Maple Leaf fan is suing Maple Leaf owners Roger’s Entertainment Group for emotional distress. Forty six  year old  Dustin Simmons was born in 1968 and has never seen his home town heroes hoist the Stanley Cup in celebration. Simmons is claiming that the longtime Maple Leaf slogan “Go Leafs Go!!!” has caused severe […]

A Parenting Memory

Some friends of ours, Steve and Nancy just had a baby daughter. It got me thinking. When our first child was born, like many couples, we split the night feeding shifts. Baby Ronin’s schedule was to feed at 11:30 p.m. (which I did so my wife could go to bed earlier) and 4:30 a.m. (which […]
