NASCAR: Atlanta, Memphis, Yawn

If you’re one of those racing fans who only watch races for the wrecks, then you must have thought the Memphis Busch race Saturday was an exciting race. What did they have, 25 cautions for almost half the laps? My theory is that  this is a result of all the “Busch whackers” (guess they’ll have […]

Your Money’s No Good Here

Apple has announced that they will no longer accept cash from people wanting to buy an iPhone. They’re also limiting the number of iPhones a person can buy to two. While I agree that they have the right to limit the number of phones a customer can buy, I have to wonder if it’s legal […]

Hey, Jude!

Sitting here listing to the Beatles 1, and Hey Jude is playing. Does anyone else think that Ringo’s drums sound like cardboard boxes? The snare doesn’t have any top end and the bass drum sounds like he’s kicking a Kleenex box. I’m just sayin…

Music City Motorplex: What’s Wrong?

Since I gave up being the webmaster for the racetrack at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds (now called Music City Motorplex), I pretty much stopped going to the races there. Apparently, I’m not alone. Their “experiment” last year of having the races on Friday was a big failure, and it’s obvious that they didn’t recover from […]

NASCAR: Sterling, Sterling, Sterling

I went to see the “Southern 300” Sunday at Music City Motorplex. The main reason I went was to see former Nextel driver Sterling Marlin race. I hadn’t seen him race at the Fairgrounds in probably 10 years, so I was looking forward to it. Before the race, I logged onto the Motorplex’s web site […]

NASCAR: Nationwide Is Not On My Side

Next year the NASCAR Busch Series will be known as the NASCAR Nationwide Series. The insurance company signed a seven year deal with NASCAR to become the title sponsor of the second-tier series, and to become their official insurance company, replacing Allstate. In a lesson perhaps learned with the AT&T fiasco this year, instead of […]

Question for Comcast

I’ve had internet service through cable for quite a few years now. When it started out, it was actually called @HOME. Then Comcast bought them out. I created an email account with the Comcast service, primarily so I could send myself stuff. But my main email address is at the harness.us domain. My wife’s main […]

Rock and Roll Hall of Sham

It’s now official: The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is bogus. According to this article, the Hall is controlled by the publisher of Rolling Stone magazine. This year’s nominees to the hall are Chic, Afrika Bambaataa, John Mellencamp, the Beastie Boys, Donna Summer, Madonna, Dave Clark Five, the Ventures and Leonard Cohen. Chic? Afrika […]

Viva NBC’s Las Vegas?

I admit it. I’ve gotten interested in the NBC TV show Las Vegas. I’ve always liked James Caan as an actor, and the storylines were pretty entertaining. So I was disappointed with Friday night’s fifth season premier. It resolved the cliff-hangers from season four in about five minutes, then took the viewer on a path […]
