Annual New Year's Posty Thing, 2016-2017 Edition: Fear and Action
4 years ago on New Year's Eve, my mother called me.  She was coughing up blood, she said, and she was at the hospital.  They might put a tube in her, and if they did, she wouldn't get to talk to me for a bit.   That was the last conversation I ever had with...

Alarmism Is Alive and Well
This is more of an op-ed post, I suppose.  Sometimes it's hard for me not to seethe a little, reading the stuff I read by "experts." I just read this article about Food Babe and her fearmongering style.  Like many in my industry, Food Babe may have good int...

Get Healthy Kickstarter
As some of you know, I am a musician.  I sing in three bands ( Ed Force One , Styx & Stones , and Maxxxwell Carlisle ).  As you may be aware, musicians don't tend to live the healthiest of lifestyles.  There's a lot of alcohol, pot and other drugs, late nig...
