Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

there is always an Aftermath

February24

non bloody aftermath

Brandon found evidence of massive snow battle.

apparently no survivors.

but, no zombies either. so, that’s probably good.

mind you… another storm is on it’s way.

the really good news is my new rig will have the winch mounted this week.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

if you are cool you have a strange teenage fan base in Russia

September20

when I was this guys age I could not find the vacuum to clean my car.

play it loud on your iMac and really enjoy it. Grab your kid and play Freddie Mercury’s (and, Queen) original Bohemian Rhapsody effort with them for contrast. I did just that with my Emma Jo (Haley Anne is currently unimpressed) while we updated her iPhone and iTouch with iOS7.

“thanks Canada!”

then tell them a story about both your mis-spent and well-spent youth.

I miss Freddie, and Michael Jackson. there are just some people I want to rock with you, all night.

tomorrow morning, on the way to Starbucks, while it’s dark and still, I’m going to play Bohemian Rhapsody LOUD on my bad-ass Jeep’s sound system with the top nowhere to be realized. and, I’m gonna sing proud, right there with Freddie.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

don’t text and FLY

November3

my ingenious and creative friend (and, he could well be your hero) Johnny Walker (that’s his real name) sent me the picture below.

I’ll venture it was honoring, my committed fight against texting and driving. for more details around that read: texting and driving to death.

do it!

peace be to my Brothers and sisters.

emma Jo Daddy and Phineas and Ferb

April17

Emma Jo and I find a lot of fun, and sometimes silly, things to do.

she turned nine just yesterday, and is becoming a very interesting little person.

one of our favorites is planning trips to New York City. I’m also coaching her in soccer again. she is part of Shockers Nation now, just like “sissy” (yesterday, their two teams combined for a massive scoring effort of fourteen goals with none against us). reading Harry Potter has gotten interesting, as well.

but, more often than not, after a hard days work and after school, we like to snuggle on the big sofa and watch Disney’s, Phineas and Ferb. it’s brilliant.

here’s the theme song, just for you.

01 Today Is Gonna Be A Great Day (Theme Song from Phineas and Ferb)

aspects of the show’s humor are aimed at adults, including its frequent pop-cultural references. co-creator Dan Povenmire, having previously written for Family Guy (which I don’t particularly care about), sought to create a show less raunchy, but with the same use of comic timing, employing humorous blank stares, expressionless faces and clever wording. Povenmire describes the show as a combination of Family Guy and SpongeBob SquarePants. Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, the other co-creator, said the show was not created just for kids, but simply did not exclude them as an audience. Marsh calls the characters “cool, edgy and clever without […] being mean-spirited.” according to Povenmire, their animation director, Rob Hughes, agreed:

“in all the other shows every character is either stupid or a jerk, but there are no stupid characters or jerks in this one.”

I like that sort of messaging for my own family.

with your day good or bad, dance away with a wild jig. do it! Emma Jo and I certainly will.

“Hey Ferb, I know what we’re gonna do today.”

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.
