Otherwise known as the scratching of chickens in the barnyard dirt.

James T. Heaney ~ 1948-2014

I lost my father yesterday. He had a history fraught with health problems, and it caught up to him. All too young. He was 65. I’m still stunned, shocked, numb… all of the above. Waves of grief crash between catatonic lulls of sadness. There is nothing else. I’m […]

Roll on, 2014

For last year’s words belong to last year’s language And next year’s words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning. ~T.S. Eliot Another year, another contract come to and end. I’m moving on from Bank of America, and looking at new […]

Who has the best pitch in England?

Tottenham, of course. They fertilized it with £100m of shit this year. Enough about those cretins. This was a horrible week for the Arsenal. We lost 6-3 at the Etihad to a rampant Manchester City side. Embarrasing. Yes, we still sit atop the table by a few […]

Yet another year has slipped on by, and I find myself on the trail of yet another adventure. All things come to an end, and kgb and I have parted ways. It was a great four years, and a great experience overall. I was a part of […]

What time is it? 5 to 2, of course!

The snacks were laid out, me in my kit, the kids wrapped in pub scarves, the lucky ball was down from the shelf in my office and being passed around, and the flag was hung from the upstairs railing over the living room. It was North London […]

Heart-Shaped Box

Heart-shaped-box

I realize that Joe Hill doesn’t like to use his father’s notoriety for his own gain, and that he’d rather be judged on his own merits, of course. Admirable, to say the least. Well, despite the cat being well and truly out of the bag since his […]

The Activists

My cousin, Professor Michael Heaney, along with director Melody Weinstein and editor Marco Roldán, have recently finished their documentary, The Activists: War, Peace, and Politics in the Streets. They’ve done an excellent job on this film after a successful Kickstarter campaign last December. Please do go and […]

God speed, Neil.

Did you go outside tonight, and wink at the blue moon? I’m standing under it right now, so bright. His family asked today, if people would remember him when they see the moon, by giving her a wink. Fitting, I think, for one of the more courageous […]
