Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

May9

I found myself with an unusual extra forty minutes this morning. so, I decided to cash them in at Sky Car Wash near my offices on the Alpharetta and Roswell border.

I handed the keys for my decidedly badd-ass Tundra to the service manager and headed for the front patio to watch traffic and wage commerce via text while waiting. NOTE: I also need to start calling sports medicine doctors about Haley Anne.

I saw my new Tundra enter the wash in good form. but, when the vehicle emerged from the the suds it was missing the radio antennae. during the rub-down phase I pointed it out to the service manager who instantly became defensive, and – blamed it on the Toyota dealership because “they did not screw it in tight enough(?)”.

I’ll cut this short with two key points:

1. I’ll not return to Sky Car Wash (you’ve already noticed, I’m confident I’ve not added a customary link to their website); and,

2. a lost radio antennae is decidedly better than getting hit by another vehicle. for perspective, read: I’m lucky Good took my truck. to wit… every day I don’t get “t-boned” can be, is, and should be, a good day. it’s all gravy, otherwise.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

brian’s new WHEELS (and osama bin laden is dead)

May3

we lost the big, black, bad-ass Ford F-150 in “the accident”.

the team said, “you can have your hearts desire”.

we did some research. the result is bad-ass, rare, and by special order.

it’s not what you might expect. it’s unique and also special (edition).

in other news, osama bin laden is dead. US Navy Seals apparently took the minion of evil out with a shot to the head Monday (remarkably apropos). evidently his son was killed in the action as well. that’s probably another good thing. no family legacy to rally around. by the way… there is certain to be a measure of controversy around the fact that bin laden’s body was “buried at sea”. conspiracy theorists will rail against the lack of a body as evidence. however, casting the remains overboard unceremoniously (without honors) makes for standard Navy protocol reserved for common criminals and riff-raff. and, I’m confident we’ll see photos at some point. but, on the other hand, without a burial place or marker, there won’t be a shrine of any sort for his followers to visit.

the miserable bastard is fish food. and, only good riddance.

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.
