Lifting UP Izzy Penston


Penston Home Access Project –

if you’d like to contribute to our home modification fund please visit: meanwhile, here’s a video introducing us and some of the challenges that Izzy and her family are facing:

Brian Patrick Cork:

the plight of the Penston family was shared with me by the inestimable Emily Capps.

as most of you know I have two beautiful daughters of my own. my heart is breaking for the Penston family. however, I am inspired by Izzy’s courage and the family’s grace. I’ve made a small donation for this effort and I hope you will join me.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

Jon Stewart vs. Barack Obama


“You can’t even do that in Grand Theft Auto!”

tomfoolery is afoot, and Jon Stewart is on it.

martian manhunterif Jon Stewart and Barack Obama were super heroes, Stewart would probably be Green Lantern – and, Obama might be the Martian Manhunter.

you really need to know your super heroes to fully appreciate this.

I’ll acknowledge that Jon Stewart is well and ably supported by terrific team of comedy writers… but, Barack Obama only has his hapless Executive Staff. since the Martian Manhunter is a bit of a rogue player, that means Stewart’s team could be the Justice League. so, this is a good opportunity to suggest Jon Stewart throw his hat in the ring for Presidency representing the common sense party.

the American people would not have Obamacare on their hands (obvious point aside) if Jon Stewart exercised “executive” authority and anecdotal hilarity.

Jon Stewart on Johnson & Johnson Scandal: You Can’t Even Do That in…

“Jon Stewart obliterated the corporation loophole on Wednesday night’s “Daily Show,” where huge institutions pay severe sums of settlement money, but avoid admitting wrongdoing, and no decision makers go to jail. In the most recent egregious…”.

peace to my Brothers and Sisters.

peace be to our Brothers and Sisters.

brian cork on Gravity


nope… this post has almost nothing to dow with Sir Isaac Newton.

it has almost everything to do with two intrepid actors, George Clooney and Sandra Bullock. this might be lost on many viewers but the entire movie gets pulled-off with essentially just these two actors. that’s pretty dang cool and unusual. the whole movie is.

George has, what might be the role of a life-time. he gets to be urbane and witty as usual, but he also gets to be heroic and tragic. Sandra brilliantly demonstrates to young ladies around the globe (literally) that resourcefulness, courage, and grit can take you places.

so, with that said (and, despite my high regard for the film), I’ll share with you a goofy review of the movies pulled from The Onion. (too many people forget about The Onion. admit it.  you had.) just go watch the damn movie yourself. it’s worth each and every minute.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
