I keep wanting to like Supergirl, but I keep having to turn it off because it's so twelve year old girl pretending she likes comic books to impress the guys. 

Guys, men, manspreaders...

Please please please send me your best photo of a guy manspreading and giving the middle finger from their groin area. I tried to make one and I've decided that to make it best express my contempt for complaints about manspreading, it needs a better angle. Get one of your friends or coworkers to take it for you but don't include your face because it might go pretty wide.

See what I did there?

But seriously, help me out here.

I totally enjoy eating alone. I don't need a mirror. When I eat alone I never feel any pressure to restrain my enjoyment for the sake of propriety or politeness.

I love going to restaurants alone. I bring a book and nicely ask the waitress to avoid too many interruptions, casually mentioning that I tip well and will be using the table for about an hour. I show her where I will be putting my coffee cup when I want a refill.

And yes, "her", because I always ask up front to be seated with a pretty young woman as my waiter. If I have to be interrupted, having a pretty young woman do it silently is better than someone who had to learn to get tips by being chatty and "nice" instead of depending on their looks. 
Do you eat alone often? Studies have shown that people enjoy their food more and eat more of it when they eat with people they are close to - as opposed to strangers. But, this may also hold true even if the other person you are eating with is you.

I think we all have equivalent fears and desires.

We all want to be free to live our lives as we choose and we all want to help those who are less fortunate. We want to protect the weak from predation and encourage the strong to greatness.

Those among us who have not been driven to madness by the purposeful divisions of politics and agenda, probably understand that we just have different ways of avoiding those fears and reaching those desires.

This song (a toe tapper) is ostensibly about romantic love. But when I woke up this morning it was in my head as a song about ways to build affinities and communities as a shield against the whipsawing of two-party politics.

Let's stop talking about solutions for a second and ask each other what we fear, and what we desire.

The truth is out there ... or just over your right shoulder.

For +Antonio G


OK, it was bad enough (actually, criminally bad) when SuperWoman's motto was Hillary's campaign slogan ("Stronger together").

But Season 4 Episode 17 of "Agents of Shield" has the main bad guy, the nazi Hydra torture "Doctor" say, "We will make our society great again".

This is why people are getting shot in baseball fields.

Another great tune well played. I listen to a lot of classical guitar and unfortunately most of it is in a style I don't like, latin influenced jazz.

I'm still looking for a classical guitarist with 18th century Gaelic and Nautical influence...
