Send Her Back

You know, it's funny. We've watched racist moment after racist moment be excused by sycophants of the Orange Fuhrer. We've watched the Republican Party betray all of it's supposed 'values' for a reality...

Monkees Lovable Bass Guitarist Peter Tork Dead at 77

So, most of you already know I’m adopted. I’m pretty open about it. My parents were always straight with me on the subject…

Anyway, growing up I always thought this guy was my dad. Like, deep-down in my bones. There was something in the smile and you know, the bowl cut. Did not hurt that he was in my favorite band of all time.

In a lot of ways, he was a father to me simply because I believed it. I told countless strangers who met “the singer from Schroeder” that I was Peter Tork’s love child. I thought it was funny as hell and just barely possible. A Scottish rugby team nearly gave me a beatdown one night after hearing “my origin story”. One of them had a serious problem with dad, turns out. Thankfully, club security felt it best I be whole for my show that evening. The rugby team was escorted off premises.

A few years later I learned that Peter Tork was not in fact, my father. I never stopped BELIEVING it though.

I always thought I’d somehow run into him and be able to share my ridiculous story.

I hope I made you proud, Pop.

RIP Peter. You meant more to this musician than you’ll ever know.

Go Ahead, Call Me Fredo One More Time!

All day I'm seeing people saying that 'Fredo' isn't the 'N Word' for Italians. I disagree. Sure, to the rest of society, and in the big, it's not the N Word. But to Italians? I said it before...
