I have some bad news: You can’t go around wearing that robe all the time, and you really need to put something on underneath it. Not that we mind, you know, but no one here has bail money if you get yourself arrested in public. And the children. Think of the children.

You also need to replace some of those glasses and mugs that keep wandering off every time you have guests over. That’s what happens when you’re such a gracious host.

And that rug. Geeze. You need one that really ties the room together.

We have all that and a few other things. Sure, you could get shirts and mugs and rugs and the local Flip-n-Spit, but no one else is going to have these designs and a dollar of every purchase helps us keep the lights on.

Take a look. Buy something. You may not really need anything, but it’s all cool stuff and you’re helping at the same time. Seriously, it’s a better investment in humanity than a lot of NGOs on the planet.

Fun Stuff

By the way, all our product orders are fulfilled by the chill dudes at CafePress. We let them do all the heavy lifting because, let’s face it, man, we’re lazy. We also don’t have room for that much inventory. This is a nice place we live in, you know, but it’s a bit small what with me, the girlfriend, three kids, seven cats, and two big ol’ dogs. The folks at CafePress are cool.

What in our future is worthy of anticipation? The following article was first published November 29 on Facebook Today is the first Sunday of Advent in the Christian tradition.

We’re Not Getting Enough Sleep And It’s Killing Us

[Annoying copy reminding people I need to eat at least once a week. Either buy something or drop us some cash.] An editorial reminder that links in this article appear bold and italicized. We don’t color or underline them. Please, click the links. Our personal health depends on learning how …

Name Calling Aside, Saving The Planet Requires Being Radical

Rhetoric is irrelevant; climate change now threatens everything, eliminating the opportunity for a measured response. Note: I realize that since we’ve spent 20 weeks with the novel there haven’t been a large number of links in what we’ve written. Our links are not underlined or colored, they’re bold italic. When …

Pondering Our Place In The Universe

Time got the best of me this week and there simply wasn’t enough time to complete my thoughts on the topic I had chosen for this post. Fortunately, there are alternatives. From the beginning of time, humans have questioned why we are here, what is our purpose. Religions were created …

Where we pass the hat

Let's be totally honest here: we need money. Our reasons aren't different than anyone else's. There are bills to pay and we've sucked up all available funds during the pandemic. If we're going to make progress and improve the experience here, we're going to need a bit of help.

When you give to Old Man Talking, you're helping raise awareness and support for issues that matter: issues like fair housing, equal pay, gender fairness, and everything else necessary to maintain an acceptable quality of life. While it would be nice to think that we can just write something and everyone instantly know about it, that's not the way things happen. We work hard to get every pair of eyes that view a post.

Our hand is out. Our hat is tipped in your direction. Thank you in advance for helping us stay solvent. Your generosity is truly overwhelming.
