It started with putting on my socks. A simple act we all do everyday changed my life. As I bent over after a shower to put on a sock, my back felt like it exploded. I screamed in pain, and my h̶e̶r̶o̶ wife came running, kids not far behind. I was in agony – and…

The Top 10 Debut Albums of All Time – #thereisnospoonfriday

I know, I know – where the hell you been Ed? It has been sometime since my last #thereisnospoonfriday and I have three “excuses”. 1) – I had a bad back for a while there (long story – totally sucked ), 2) Been really busy with work stuff and 3) creative brain-freeze (hey – it…

Core Values or Corporate Dogma?

One of my favorite movies is “They Live” – starring the late (and definitely great) “Rowdy” Roddy Piper. The movie depicts a crumbling society wherein a small group of rebels form together with an understanding of a huge secret the larger populace is ignorant of – that the world has been taken over by aliens…
