STUPID!

Coronado-Bathroom.The-Shower-in-my-bathroom-folly.1While going through some stuff the other day I came across two magazines which I had completely forgotten about because they showed how stupid one could be. When I first moved to California we bought a large old home in Coronado which unfortunately had several bathrooms that began to shut down until there were none. I had to use the shower down where my boat was docked (another stupid tale) which put me into a rage so before thinking it through, I loudly and stupidly said to my wife … You would think as hard as I work that the least I could have is a bathroom that worked. The next thing I knew Architects, Decorators, and Construction workers were everywhere and they must of smelled my “F**k You” account with well over 200 thousand in it. Now my wife and the 200 grand are gone and after using the bathroom only once all I have left of those days are these pictures in “Better Homes and Gardens”.

Most people are either a Democrat or a Republican except for the wealthy who own both of them.

The only time the past exists is when you think about it.

So what I don’t understand in the John Goodman trial is what the hell the lawyers did that cost 4 million bucks.

Three things most men really hate doing are.
1. Asking directions.
2. Filling out forms.
3. Going to the mall.

How much is enough.

Tomorrow is a mystical place where everything is going to be OK.

When you’re young time moves so slowly that you measure your age by fractions. I’m 8 and a half going on 9, then it moves to, I’m going on 16 even if you’re only 14. It starts picking up speed when you become 21, you turn 30, you’re pushing 40, you reach 50, you make it to 60, you hit 70. When you get into your 80’s it starts slowing down again when you claim you just turned 90, and if you are lucky enough you get to proudly brag that you are a 100 and a half.

My Daughter Cami decided to come home for her birthday from college but for some reason her train was delayed 4 and a half hours. When she finally got on board she texted me that while waiting at least she had made a new friend and when I asked her if it was a male or female she said she would have to get back to me on that one. She later explained that at some point he got up and went to the restroom and when he came out he had turned into the most beautiful woman she had ever seen.

If you ever worked for Jim Hilliard you soon realize that you are ruined because that isn’t how regular radio really works so you become almost unemployable.

Speaking of Jim, he once told me that when he first got into radio he learned every job in the building so that someday he would be able to run the place. That would kind of thinking would disqualify most folks today I figure.

When I first got into radio it was more fun to be at work than be at home which works out well for the industry but was hell on marriages.

Radio if it ever wants to get new money has to figure out how to do product placement.

Luckily I get paid to listen to radio because I’m not so sure I would otherwise.

Is it possible to buy anything anymore without them trying to up sell you.

It seems to me that America decided it was time to spank the Democrats on Nov 4th for whatever reason. The thing I noticed though is Jews, Blacks, and the folks who live in California and Massachusetts always vote for the Democrats no matter what. Strange!

Have you ever noticed that as soon as a company becomes successful their good service is the first thing to go.

Betsy Cameron told me that even Haiti is a wonderful place to visit if you know some rich folks you can stay with.

The great thing about having strong Daughters is if a woman does me wrong I will just turn her over to them.

Who was it that told women that they could say anything they wanted to a man without fear of violence.

The only way to be happy is become one person instead of trying to manage all the people you are. You know the one with strangers, the one with clients, the one with fellow workers, the one with family, the one you are when you are alone etc. So far I’ve got it down to 2, the one with my Daughters and the one who isn’t.

When I first moved to California I officed at KOGO/KPRI where Tom Shadek was kind enough to give up his huge office for me including a couple of bottles of whiskey which he left behind. That was just too tempting so before long it turned into “toddy time”  in my office each day at 5. Hell even the morning crew came back to the station everyday for it and I finally had to promote Reid Reker to Maitre D’ just to handle all the reservations .

Every project needs a balance between what you want to do, what you like to do, and what should be done.

It is said that it is better to have loved and lost than have never loved at all but I’m just wondering how many times you get to go through the procedure before you’re just a loser.

Great leaders have one thing in common and that is they just simply support what the staff wants to do.

When a team decides they’re not gonna lose they seldom do.

It is very difficult to act stupid unless you are.

  1. I read your stuff, because every once in a while there are some gems…..it’s like mining I think….lotza rocks….then a bright stone. There were a couple of shiny ones here.

  2. Bathroom is spelled “batroom” but maybe that wads intentional?

    Isn’t Legal Line at KZST a good example of product placement? They mention law firm names and make new money.

  3. Legal Line is a good example David but it would be 10 times more powerful if it came out of programming, kinda like Jordan actually wore the shoes!
