Book Review: The Second Coming, a Love Story

Ya know what it is, is something very special. Pinsker takes us on an epic journey of the End Times, but the literary device that he employs – a Savior and an Antichrist who may not be what they seem – creates a foreboding undercurrent that’s irresistible.  Never before have good and evil, light and dark, God and Satan been...

so you want to start a radio station?

updated 4/6/17 Between people coming to Renegade, finding us on facebook (yea, right. People are too busy showing off their lunch to give a damn who else is out there) or being involved in discussion groups such as linked in and so forth, I see a lot of people asking “man, help me setup a radio station!” One of my...

social media crumbles again

Sort of. You can’t make efforts to avoid the law. You must be over 18 to talk about guns. (if someone could explain that bit of nonsense to me, I’d appreciate it) and in a bold move have issued this pointed statement that simply could *never* be misrepresented. “will not permit people to post offers to sell regulated items that...

Currently I have direcTV and it's not bad. i hate the "record" feature when I just want to watch something and that annoys me. then there's the "pregnant pause" feature.

is the PC on life support?

With the ever changing face of technology these days, consumers are now caught between computers, phones and all sorts of tablets in between. There was a day when Microsoft led the way and over time accomplished Bill Gates simple mission statement of “a personal computer on every desk and in every home”. While the PC isn’t “dead” yet it is...

they say guns kill people

Guns don’t kill people. We hear that a lot but in today’s society they sure seem used by others to get the job done. Most recently we’re all aware of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting where 20 children and 6 adults lost their lives at the hands of 20 year old Adam Lanza. This is a heartbreaking event and many...

bucket list – arctic style

Bucket List. I have to imagine we all have one but we keep putting things off. Work, cost, is that *really* on the list? Sometimes you have to stop and then, just go. Go do it. Put away the excuses and hide the reasons from the logical side of you. So while I had some downtime, I decided recently to...

a pop tart moment

happen? I've had several "pop tart" moments since the original one and now I've just come to appreciate them for what they are; a coincidence of epic proportions that you can't plan because the random nature of them is what makes them so great.   let me back up and explain how first the term got coined and then the...

analysis of a dream

we've all had dreams that flat woke us up in a cold sweat. or maybe it's only me and I should seek help. however, over time I've come to find my dreams usually center around a few things. I'm in familiar territory, but it's all different and changes every time I look around. if I go back to where I...

the death of FM

All through history new technology has made old technology obsolete. With music, we started off with reel to reel tapes and moved to 8-tracks. I’m not sure how 8 tracks ever got out the door however. i never had one that didn't need a piece of paper shoved in the side of the tape to player (if you don't understand...

The New Marvel Universe

The New Marvel Universe

Attention comic readers! It's completely possible that the combination of the Marvel comic realities could be a disaster.  Using my favorite childhood comic Spider-Man as an example, he had at least four seperate comics running in the 90's.  Spider-Man, Spectacular Spider-Man, Amazing Spider-Man and a weekly comic strip... and none of those effected the other. As of now... there will...

Brobusters vs. Galbusters

Here are the facts.  Ghostbusters, the 1984 movie about the destruction of New York City by a giant marshmallow, and a woman demon dressed in bubblewrap, and an obvious 1980's supermodel haircut is getting remade.  Gone will be Ray Stantz, Peter Venkman, Winston Zedmore, and Egon Spengler...and these characters are so big, that they need to be replaced with 4...

so, you think you want a dog?

With all the changes I’ve been going through since my ICU visit last October, I do feel like I’m taking control of my life again. Getting up to get things done, cleaning up around the house on a regular basis, and all the things I never cared about or took the time to under my previous lifestyle. Maybe one day...

The Cunning Use of Flags

"Do you have a flag?" ... "No flag, no country!  You can't have one!" ... "Those are the rules that I've just made up!" During the Age of Exploration (late 1400s to at least the late 1600s), powerful European countries often conquered "new" lands with the cunning use of flags.  [To clarify for the history buffs and snobs, Jemini is...
