I’m glad for Henry Rollins’ good fortunes, a strong musical following long after his band Black Flag’s heyday ended in ’86 and The Rollins Band stopped in 2003, success at spoken word and radio work, great looks well into his 50s… Hell, at least until recently he was in my wife’s “top five”, and apparently Read More →

I took a different route home from Target today. I drove through one of those Oakland neighborhoods where all the windows have bars, graffiti covers nearly every wall, and there are heaps of trash in the streets. On my way through, I passed a particularly interesting example of that graffiti and stopped to make an Read More →

Today I was going to blog about a tricycle I found in a trash heap. I sat down to the computer, and as I compulsively do, checked my usual websites before starting; Gmail followed by Facebook then The Daily Beast, Cracked, and YouTube. I’d made it as far as Facebook. When I first read that Read More →

Hey there all my Facebook people: For those of you close enough to me to have my phone number, a call or text is the best way to reach me. Barring that, I have two email addresses that get checked several times per day. Lately, more and more of you have been getting ahold of me through Read More →

Hey, just a quick note: When I started writing this post, I’d just gotten back from Florida at the end of July. Not it’s well into August, I’m just getting over a nasty summer flu, and… well… let’s just pretend its a couple week or so ago… When I was a kid, the Fourth of July Read More →

I can’t believe it’s been two weeks since I’ve completed a blog post! First of all, I started back on the video bandwagon, plus work’s still been crazy, but the main deal for me lately has been working on the podcast. There many things to do besides just recording a conversation and posting it on Read More →

In my last blog post, I mentioned that I needed to get my poop together something fierce. Disorganization was becoming the law of the land in the Mast household. Last night, the situation came to a point where normal words fail to do it justice. I had to break out “fastigium”. The good news is, I got the Read More →

My office is a goddamned mess again. Not just a little “I need to spend a few minutes straightening up again” kind of mess. No, it’s a “Jesus, someone call the hoarders show, I think we’re gonna find dead raccoons in here” kind of mess. Mostly it’s ’cause I fail to keep up with organization: Read More →

I’m finally going to try climbing back on the YouTube video wagon. I’ve already got one up on the NotChristopherMast channel, where I’ll be doing my off-the-cuff stuff that I’ve already had going. Hopefully soon I’ll get to recording the one for my main channel, ChristopherMast. For now, enjoy the amateusomeness of this video.

Yesterday I bought some Duplo blocks for my kid. She’s been a big fan of her MegaBloks forever but there’s only so much you can do with them and she’s got the kind of brain that likes putting things together, organizing stuff, and doing puzzles (at least lately). A year ago, I would never have Read More →

The original plan was to start making a video today. No, for real. Yes, I know I haven’t been around the “Tubes of You” forever, but I recently finished a project for work and I’m inspired. Besides, the “Shut Up Already!” podcast I’ve been doing already had me inspired, and although there was a lot Read More →

I never liked meatloaf much. I ate it at home when mom made it, but that was only because there wasn’t a choice. I had to drown it in ketchup to get it down. Basically, from what I remember, it was saltine crackers, egg, salt, tomato sauce, and hamburger that got mashed up in a Read More →
