Sometimes the universe hates my plans.
I finally conceded. Nobody reads anymore, so I created a video page. https://kieranbullshit.com/videos-lewis-black/
Lewis Black hates tennis. But he closed his show in Austin, Texas on Friday, Nov. 22 with a little tale about the John Newcombe Tennis Ranch. (video)
Last year the Bear and I went to see Lewis Black in San Diego -- we won't be going back. It's not the cost of tickets, or the airfare, or the hotel. My ass is used to getting screwed by them.
If I was smart, I would have gone to Las Vegas on Sunday. On Saturday, I hit the fucking Rant is Due lottery -- Lewis Black read another of my little stories.
I've been writing this bullshit for two-and-a-half-years. Jesus, I could have had a master's degree by now. In those 30 months, I've gone from 5 to about 8 readers. Following how my god damn generation raised all these douchebags, when you hit 8 participants, it's time to present the participation trophies.
I might have to break a couple of semi-famous thumbs.
Fucking 57-years-old and what do you get? Another participation trophy and deeper in debt.
We regret to inform you that your marketing efforts are failing -- for us. As you may already know, the Bullshit blog has several entries to include the shit Lewis was kind enough to read in his "Rant is Due" tirades.
What do you call that little strip of grass between the sidewalk and the street? If you are from Akron, Ohio, you call it the Devil Strip.
