BJ'S BLOG 03/23/14 "It's Rambling Harbor, Not Pigeonhole Cove"

Today's blog comes from one of my mentors, Dan Sanders:

One definition of "pigeonhole" is a small compartment in a desk or wall for storing letters or papers. Another definition is a category assigned to someone that focuses on a particular characteristic, not the whole person, so it's often unfair. I fear that second definition.

I have spent two weeks sounding like I might be morphing into a news commentator ranting about some government lunacy or other dog-and-pony show, all played out by that big-top circus called Washington, D.C. That's a place where, when you use the term "seat of government," it's used in polite company and does not refer to the asses running our country.

I don't want anyone to get the idea they would necessarily come to these shores and find Dan's latest diatribe about this world issue or that one—yes, sometimes, but by no means all the time. Now that Rambling Harbor is gaining some foothold in the big, wide, scary world of blogging and podcasting. I want to say this about that. One week, I might focus on Kanye West and Kimmie K.'s ass or on Donald "The Duck" Trump. I might tell you a story from my life—a trip to Greenwich Village in the 1960's or Harvard Square in the 1970's or, having been a DJ, something on music and musicians. As I said last week, I'm not Rachel.

This week the biggest issue in my life was my closet. I'm convinced there are small people living there. I don't see them, but they are there and always leave it a mess. My cat Chloe sees them at night. I have seen her dart from inside the darkest depths of her closet kingdom, where she has a warm safe bed, and run to the kitchen and back, and at times I swear I hear other tufted footfalls besides Chloe's. It always sounds like fun, especially when they have fights with my socks! How else could such a mess happen?

My podcast sometimes has very little to do with my blog. After writing 500 words or so, why in heck would I want to talk about the same subject for 15 more minutes, and why would you listen to it? Remember, variety makes life spicy.

As I'm gaining new followers (thank you! thank you!), I thought it necessary to let you know that this is Rambling Harbor, emphasis on "rambling." Just add variety, stir in a dash of lunacy, and a pinch of WTF, and there you go.

I'm not sure what you'll find on the shores of Rambling Harbor this time, but join me there, won't you?

Has 25 years really gone by for Andrew Wood?

Has 25 years really gone by? Our city of Seattle has been through so much pain over the years within our music community loosing so many great musicians to drugs. Seems like yesterday the bad news of Andrew Wood hit my ears 3.19.90. I remember the huge buzz leading up to the Mother Love Bone "Apple" release. They were the next rock stars, the next big thing in rock music, then Andrew has a relapse with heroin and the end of Mother Love Bone happened before it even began. Remember one thing, if there was no Mother Love Bone there might of never been Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Nirvana etc.

Andrew Wood and MLB opened the major label records door to Seattle and it's uprising rock/grunge scene. The world changed forever...thank you Andrew, you were of a different seed for sure, but a special one it was and its a damn shame that seed didn't blossom into the major rock star you were. You were the biggest loss in Seattle rock music history by a long shot. Why? True rock stars were a thing of the past before Andrew, he was the next and would've been possibly the last true rock star we'd know from his musical talent, vision and fashion that we would've seen grow over the years. Apple is what we have left and in Seattle music history it will live on forever! Check out Northwest Music Scene's article today: "25 Years After The Tragic Death of Andrew Wood- We Still Wonder" Great article {READ HERE}

BJ'S BLOG 03/19/15 "First Date Make Out"

We'd like to take a moment to say hello to any Rock-A-Holics who might be joining us in Group Therapy for the first time. I don't know if you have any personal rules about things like this, but if you want to, uh, "hang out" when we're done here, I'm not opposed…

26-year-old Fran recently had a date that she thought went pretty well: they had a good dinner, and talked for four hours, and then her date drove her home. They made out in the car for about ten minutes, and he said he wanted to see her again.

As you can probably guess, she's writing us because she hasn't heard from the guy since that night. She's wondering if he might be judging her because she was willing to make out on the first date; in fact, she specifically asked if she was "trashy" for doing so.

I guess I can't say for sure, but I find this line of questioning a little odd. Personally, I don't think ten minutes of making out is a big deal at all, especially in this day and age. The very idea that it might be considered "trashy" makes me wonder if Fran might be a little old-fashioned to start with. Again, we don't have that information, so let's just focus on the basic facts…

Do you think it's okay for a woman (or a man, for that matter) to make out on the first date?

STP's BLOG 03/19/15 "Mariners Commercials"

The Mariners just released their new set of commercials. if you aren't familiar with what they do...every year they make a batch of commercials that are creative and funny. I have to say that this year 's are the best yet! It's fun seeing these guys in a light-hearted environment...and for some, wearing metal inspired wigs!

This is a great one.... features Nelson Cruz and Logan Morrison discussing Fernando Rodney's "flying arrow"...

I got a kick out of this one...especially Manager Lloyd McClendon's part...

This one stars King Felix...and a...uh...mime?!?

Finally...good luck getting this song out of your head...

Just based on these commercials...Tom Wilhelmsen has quickly become one of my favorite personalities on the team. We need to get him on the show one of these days! Not only for his metal stylings in these commercials, but I read an interview with him where he was asked if he has a favorite restaurant or bar in Seattle...and his response: "All of 'em! Whichever ones don't run out of beer."

Plus, Tom also likes to jam out to "Turn Down For What":

I am getting more and more stoked for the Mariners this year....I can't wait to go to some games!

SHOW # 2119 MARCH 18 2015


To the delight of and at the request of no one on this Earth, Randy Quaid and his equally insane wife Evi, recorded and released a sex tape. The inherent flaw in their sex video is that it features THEM. And worse, they do a little bit of everything for your viewing (dis)pleasure, including a particularly disturbing scene where Randy wraps a belt around his wife's neck while she pleasures herself with a vibrator... while he explains that this is how David Carradine died. If that's not distracting enough (and it's not) it should be noted that their dog is in the room and is barking the ENTIRE time. It's frankly, the worse sex tape ever and should NOT be seen. I'm not even offering a link to it because I don't hate you. The video did inspire today's question: WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU SAID, 'I DID NOT NEED TO SEE THAT?'

I think I agreed with each and every answer given. Here are a few examples:

His drunk buddy dropped his pants at a party to show everyone the golf ball- sized cyst on his back just above his butt crack. Cysts, by the way, are NEVER awesome to see

Big woman at Wal- Mart wearing her sweatpants inside- out... there was a poop stain on the butt

Discovered mom's "big purple dildo" on her bed. Parents, PLEASE put your sex toys away. I do!

Walked in on his female roommate masturbating to 'Sons of Anarchy'... on HIS leather chair

The 'movie' "2 Girls, One Cup"

Wandered into the locker room at the gym and the first thing he saw was an old man's testicles

Walked into the COMPANY bathroom to discover his co-worker FULLY naked, washing his junk in the sink. If that wasn't bad enough, he also had a silver c*ck ring

A woman got on the bus TODAY with a FRESH poop stain on the back of her skirt. Everyone on the bus opened their windows because the poop was THAT fresh

Caught her cousin pooping in the front yard. He was gonna leave it, but she made him dig a hole and dispose of it. WTF?!?

Works at a mental hospital and walked in on a guy masturbating in the common area... to the movie 'Frozen'... I've seen the movie about 1000 times and there is NOTHING that should lead one to masturbate. Nothing... not a single thing

Yea, it was that kind of day... full of visuals that, in retrospect, aren't that awesome to entertain. Today's question was one that reminds us here on the show to remember that sometimes you'll regret what you ask. Sure, we laughed a lot, but that was always followed with a gag reflex that threatened to call our guts out of our mouths. OK, now that I'm thoroughly disgusted, it's time to say adios... adios.

Until next time, do what you do best and STAY BEAUTIFUL!"

BJ'S BLOG 03/18/15 "Helpful Husband"

It's Group Therapy time! Rock-A-Holics helping Rock-A-Holics, baby! Isn't it nice to help people? Who doesn't like that?

Well, Caitlin is concerned about a "helpful" situation that involves her husband. It seems that a recently-divorced woman has transferred to his office, and she constantly asks for his assistance with things around her residence. Caitlin says that she trusts her husband, but he's nice to the point of being naïve, and she's a little worried that he's being taken advantage of...and that this woman-in-need may have more "needs" than she's letting on. Caitlin's husband is good-looking and makes good money, so it's not a stretch – in Caitlin's mind – for him to be a prime target.

The woman recently called Caitlin's husband at home on a weekend, looking for help with an electrical problem. Finally reaching the end of her patience with the situation, Caitlin told her husband to suggest that the woman find assistance elsewhere, because her married handyman is no longer available. Mr. Nice Guy thinks that Caitlin is being cruel to this poor woman, and defends her need for help while she's trying to rebuild her life after her divorce.

Unless this guy is a home repair maniac, I guess I can understand where Caitlin is coming from; who wants to spend their off-hours doing MORE work? I'm not saying that she should assume anything about his faithfulness, but I do have to wonder why he's so patient with this other woman. I'm a man (last time I checked, anyway) and I can honestly say that I can't see most men being THAT nice without some kind of reward.

What do you say, gang? Am I assuming too much, or is there a different kind of work going on here?

STP's BLOG 03/18/15 "Rumors...Relax!"

Sometimes I have to wonder about people. Yesterday there was a rumor that Michael Bennett of the Hawks requested a trade. Just reading the headlines I immediately thought that there is no way. This morning we read that both the Seahawks and the NFL denied these rumors. It's amazing how one tweet by one "reporter" could cause waves like this…

What's even more amazing are the so-called "fans" that are quick to bash Bennett for something that hasn't even been confirmed.

I'm not one of those people that trash other fans, or get mad that the Hawks are attracting a new fan base thanks to their success…in fact I LOVE that the team is getting more and more popular… BUT … if you are one of those "fans" to trash a player based on a rumor, you are an idiot.

Here are some of the things I read…

What a jerk
As a 'hawks fan, I say let him go.
Sheesh does Bennett dislike Jimmy Graham that much?
Wow. What an ass****.
Good…we don't need him!

I can't imagine what life is like for people like that…jumping to conclusions before any factual information is presented to them.

It's been a while since my alter ego, Steve Tomatoes, has made a review…I fixed that this morning…

STP's BLOG 03/17/15 "St. Patty's Day Trick!"

Today we thought we learned a fun trick that you can impress your friends with while celebrating St. Patrick's Day…aka. …Drinking.

There's a YouTube video floating around that shows how to get the cap off a beer bottle using nothing but a sheet of paper. Here's what you do . . .

1. Fold the paper in half from top to bottom. Then fold it in half long-wise three times, until it's long and thick (if you giggled when reading "thick", apparently you are at the same level of maturity as I am).

2. Now fold THAT in the middle, to turn it into a "V" shape.

3. Hold the bottle steady, put the "V" part under the cap, and pop it off.

Well I tried it this morning…either the bottle cap I worked with was glued on or the paper I used wasn't strong enough…but I wasn't able to make it happen. Hell...I failed miserably!
