Bad to the Bone

Written by
I've been fortunate enough to interview a number of musicians over the years. Some have disappointed. Some are rude. And some are gems. George Thorogood is a gem. I had the chance to talk with him about his latest LP, touring, and whether or not he still drinks alone.

Check This

It’s a fact that some people don’t trust technology. Many people still have a landline, still go to the bank in person, still read a physical newspaper. If you still write checks to pay your bills beware that thieves are targeting those checks, taking them, and taking your money. Check…

Let's Wrestle!

Written by
My dear friend Jonas Hershberger passed away last year. He was a special dude. He had to listened to me at every radio station I've been at over the last decade+. He was an all-in kind of guy. If there was a station fundraiser, he'd donate what he could. He'd…

I admit it. I'm into porn. My favorite? Ruin Porn. I can easily fall down that rabbit hole of looking at picture after picture or video of abandoned places. For example, the aftermath of Rolling Acres Mall hurts my heart. Johnny Joo is a photographer, and he's captured so much…

On The Run

Written by
If you can fly, get out! That's what two flamingos did 17 years ago. Some stormes rolled through a zoo in Kansas, and two flamingo residents freaked out and fled. Because their wings hadn't been clipped yet, they pink-tailed it out of there. One flamingo with the leg band #492…

Slow Ride

I love animals. They are so adorable. If you follow me on Instagram (@hausofv) you'll see my story featuring animals frequently. The older I get, the more appreciation I have for the other creatures that share our space. One animal I love-- sloths. They're just so chill. One sloth decided…
