Senior Cranky Hates the Irish, Porn, Nascar, Cats, People Magazine, and Snow, to name a few.

Everyone spends so much time talking about how the sun does this and the sun does that and "Oh, how wonderful the sun is because it keeps us warm and gives us light." Well frankly, I've had enough of this sun crap. I'm hotter than hell and I wouldn't mind if the damn thing just burned out and never came up over the horizon again. It can stay in Europe for all I care. When I want light I'll just pull the chain on my bowling pin lamp and when I want a whole bunch of light I'll pull three times.

This guy is hilarious.

Ah, memories of Richmond.

... their country is full of rabble-rousing, dipso-bastards who can't fart a coherent sentence.

Like, for example, Nobel Laureate Seamus Heaney maybe? Wow. Sure, St Paddy's Day in the States is despicable, but who the hell insults the Irish literary tradition? I could start naming great authors who happen to be Micks and not stop until next March 17th.

Ehh, as far as rants go, I guess he's mildly amusing, though.

I like the ocassional MeFi nod to central/eastern VA. Makes me feel less like I'm watching the internet happen from a distance.

Liz & Pete and the whole Punchline Staff, sorely missed as the independent voice in Richmond since they called it quits.

I had no idea that Sr. Cranky lives on.

Hey, some of us still have to go into Richmond. And yes, it still sucks.

Punchline was fantastic. Somehow, the local music store in here in Charlottesville would snag a few copies from Richmond and distribute them around. Such a superior publication to our own alt-weeklies--the movie reviews were written under the rubric of "how much was it worth?" and a general sense of humor always worked its way through the rest of the magazine. Only problem was that it was half a week out of date by the time it probably got it.

This all having been said...Senor Cranky never got more than a dry chuckle or two out of my smoke break. Eh. To each their own, I guess.

I used to write for Punchline; does that make me cool? No? Thought not. And I always wondered who Senior Cranky's alter-ego was; they told me it was a woman, but that's all I could learn.
