GMG Holiday Party December 29th At Gloucester Stage
There’s a photographer that submits photos and freaks out when I don’t post them.

First he submits them and adds “Let me know when they will be posted.” The next day I generally get a disappointed email that he hasn’t seen his photos on the blog yet. The day after that he goes on insinuating that I don’t want to promote local artists. Relentless.

“Santa Baby” non-controversy.  Outrage culture vigilantes are a minority.  I used to get freaked out but now it seems the public is starting to wear of these stories.

#GloucesterMA #Lobster Trap Tree Buoys Being Put On! Tree Lighting Tonight At 4:30

The .01% is winning and we’re all losing because it.

These are people desperate for attention and media outlets desperate for clicks and views to sell advertising.  It’s the perfect storm.  The media company knows it’s so outrageous that it will get people talking and viewing.  99.9 % of people have no problem with any of it.  It’s the .01% that is vocal and desperate for attention and not only are they getting it, but they are influencing what is being shown on tv and print through the fear of losing advertising dollars.  Sad really.

The perpetually offended are winning with a teeny tiny minority.

Thanks @aliciadewolfe for the graphic.

PSA To The People Who Buy Socks

I would like to share a life altering discovery about socks.

If you or the person you buy socks for is a man that wears a 11 or 12 or larger shoe, make sure you buy XL socks.

It’s a game changer.

Large socks are generally labelled that they are for shoe size 9- 11.5.

That’s a bunch of horseshit if wear an 11.  If you wear a size 11 shoe and buy Large sized socks your feet will be cramped and it will cut your circulation making your feet cold in the winter.

When you go to the stores a majority of what will be on display will be Large sized socks but seek out the XL.

Your feet will be infinitely more comfortable.  Trust me on this.

Total game changer.

I’ve also mentioned in the past that there is no reason you should buy cotton socks.  they suck.  they retain moisture and wet feet in cold conditions will make your feet 100 times colder.

You should only buy socks made of merino wool.

Because you wear your socks so often you shouldn’t skimp when purchasing them.  good socks that fit you properly- next level stuff.

Here are some of my favorites (click the link)-
