Last year at this time, Ms. Carol Doda, 76, was arrested by San Francisco police when she smashed her Audi into a parked car and the police smelled alcohol on her breath. In the 1960′s, Doda  danced at the Condor Club and through numerous ‘obscenity,’ ‘outraging public decency,’ and ‘freedom of speech’ lawsuits.  She won almost every one.

What was her talent?  The manager of the silicone-enhanced, 44D busty star said, “Well, with a little help, she can sit up.”

When she retired from the stage, Carolyn Doda formed a rock group named, “Carol Doda and the Lucky Stiffs.”  They opened for  “Nobody Famous,” the legendary SF rock band which included my friend Brad. Brad was the band’s almost-nominated Grammy-award-winning drummer.  He and Carolyn were secretly married in Lake Tahoe, Nevada in 1982.  The marriage was annulled less than a year later.

Brad asked me not mention his marriage in this post.

Popcorn: Food’s Recreational Sex

Tuesday, October 28th, 2014


Do deeply religious people eat popcorn?  It seems to go against their principles. Popcorn’s job in life is simple: PLEASURE; hedonistic, mouth-slavering, tastebud-thrilling PLEASURE. Popcorn’s fun!

No one claims your body needs popcorn; it’s not nutritionally-loaded, and any fiber benefits are quickly drowned in fatty butter and mounds of salt.  Many people in Europe skip the salt – and dust it with sugar!  You don’t eat popcorn because you’re hungry – and mothers don’t demand you eat all of it before you get dessert. Society doesn’t accuse it of being empty and superficial – it makes money from it. Popcorn has slipped under the judgmental radar and is accepted just for what it is.

Munching popcorn is one of life’s great moments of small joy with few negative condemnations and no guilt. 

I eat popcorn every day and think you should too.
