The Ill-Humored Author

No one ever really gets to see the “REAL” me. I use Gravatar’s that mean something to me for my company (my Grandfather) and all my authored work. So…If you’re interested in seeing who I REALLY am, or what I’ve REALLY done or what I’m REALLY all about, you can visit my LinkedIn public profile .  You can also find the REAL me (minus my REAL me photo) on Google +. That will also give you (if you’re a Google + er) a full listing of other places I hang-out. It will link you to my company website, learningmedia online, inc as well as take you to my profiles on Facebook, Twitter, Chime in. You can also find Today in Heritage History, (our complete archived collection since day one, the whole tomale as they like to say on “cop” shows) on eblogger.

I like really smart people, and really funny stuff.  I hate stupid people, pretentious people, pseudo-intellectuals, religion, politicians, conservatives, and people who correct my political correctness (I have none, leave me the fuck alone!). Irreverent,-good. Smart-funny-good. Smug,-bad, Pretentious-doesn’t even PRETEND to be good (that’s a joke. If you don’t get it you shouldn’t be here–Fox News is calling your name). Taking yourself too seriously,-really bad, and stupid. I take no fact as fact, I believe nothing I can’t empirically see or prove, opinions are earned and NO! not everyone is entitled to one, ESPECIALLY if they’re stupid. I like laughter in any size, shape, manner or fashion, particularly if it’s irreverent.  Life is too short to be taken seriously, and Historians and Politicians who don’t believe that are well…just pompous, pretentious, air-bags. I have nothing to lose here because frankly at 18, I never expected to live THIS long. I guess I should have had a better plan, huh? But I did however always tell myself growing-up that I was going to “be somebody” when I got older. I realize now that I probably should have been a little more specific.

If you have a great blog, please let me know. Tell me about it, share it, lead me there.  I love to follow good stuff, fun stuff, and smart stuff. I also like to connect on Google +. I think it’s way better than Facebook, and wasn’t stolen by some Harvard-drop-out ass jockey.  You can always email me directly at and if you’re ever dumb enough to be in Upstate New York during the winter, call me. I know a couple of great places you can get snowed in for a week. Bring your own date and food (and in my best Groucho Marx..and bring me a date and food). There’s an old Groucho joke here about dates and deserts, but I refuse to tell it here. But, you could encourage me to tell it.

Thank you. Thank you most of all for reading this simpleton drivel that people are expected to have in their “About” section. I hope you’ll follow my blog, and my work. I will do my very best every day to educate, inform, and make you laugh. It and life really doesn’t get any better than that. Don’t ya’ think?

  5. Hello Peter – I saw that you stopped-by my blog yesterday…thank you for visiting and for letting me know you were there. You have quite an interesting site…I rather enjoy your take on our histories. 🙂

    • Thank you for visiting back. Loved your blog and subscribed. We’re an acquired taste for certain and not (always) for everyone. Please come back and see if we can keep you smiling every day. My very best back to you.

      • You are welcome for the visit back, Peter…and I’ve had the same said about myself…that I am an acquired-taste and certainly not for everyone. 🙂

        That being said, and specifically in response to your invitation (I’ve never been invited to follow one’s blog), I shall frequent your site and share in your smiles.

        Thank you for the invitation…and for your kind words about my blog.

        I will see you here and there. Scott

  10. I found my self smiling and then snickering. Enjoy your site. I like stuff that sinks slowly. I never thought the crowbar to the nose in the 3 Stooges was funny. The next guy to pick it up and feel the mucus on it; that funny.

  12. Tag, You’re it! Come see what mess I’ve gotten you in. Love, Vickie
    (That above message was just what I copied and pasted on the other ten. I know that you probably don’t do this sort of thing, but putting your blog on my post will give my people a chance to click on your link and read your great blog. 🙂

  13. I have nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. You can read about this at

  14. I get your humor – really get it. I think the same way, but synthesize it. A keen reader can see what lies below the surface.
    Thanks for subscribing and I look forward to reading more or your musings.

    • THANK YOU Kenton….ah…another ill-humored person in the world…soon it will all be ours!!!Thanks for reading and following. LOVE your work as well BTW. Stick with us…we’re just getting warmed-up…honest. My best back tro you.

  15. Tell us how you really feel. 🙂 Seriously, though, I love it that you hate religion. I wanted to let you know that I was stalking you for a while this afternoon, just in case you have had that chill up your back feeling without a known reason. That was me. Over at your other site, I was trying to comment about how the photo of Newt in the space helmet just cracked me up, but it wouldn’t let me. Stupid comment bar. Anywho, I am going to add you to my blog roll, because my people (I have like three) should see your blog. You are out there, PKC. Love it. Vickie

    • No problem..I love being e-stalked. I’m heading over right now to see what’s up with the comment bar at Today in Campaign 2012. Thank you soooo much for adding me to your Blog Roll. I truly appreciate that, AND your help to help me get the word out. Admittedly we’re not for everyone, but I’m certain that there are more smart people (like you) that might appreciate the “ill-humor”. I have returned the favor and put your RSS feed on the todayinhh blog that shows abbreviated “clips” from “Jumping”. Hope that helps you back. Thank you much for following, reading, and helping build our readership–much, much, much appreciated. My best back to you!

    OMG! I am laughing out loud in bursts just reading your gravatar blurb! Fantastic Peter!!!! Your humour is very, very warm, like an electric fire – instant!! I’m amazed! Thankyou and hahaha:)

  21. Thanks for the follow! It’s nice to actually see that people other than those I know are following me. Please I’d like to know how you stumbled across my blog.

    • THANK YOU for both reading and leaving me your message. I’m so new here at Word Press and travel so many different “clicks” in a day, I can’t remember how I found you (sorry). I DO remember however that I loved your title, your blog description and (when I got there) your content. I’m following you by e-mail so I can keep up to date on all your posts. Sorry I couldn’t be more helpful but looking forward to following your posts. You are a very talented writer. My best back to you for a great 2012.

        Oh good gads! I hope you’re not following me by email…. that’s where all the drafts go, the stuff I accidentally publish. And you can’t take it back. I do all my best edits live.Those buttons are too close together or maybe I just have chunky fingers or bad hand/eye-blog co-ordination.
        I can hardly believe you’re new! … except that you have so few replies for the quality of your output! It’s remarkable. Very good. I turn to it for a belly-laugh as often as I can!

  22. Thanks for the follow. I’d like to know how you stumble across my blog.

  23. Cheers to another fine misanthrope. Randomly reading your posts this evening and enjoying your humor and insight. Was compelled to subscribe.
    Appreciate your visit to YoYo-Dyne and after perusing your writings I’ve come up with a plan. I can’t tell you what it is or I’d have to kill myself.
    Wait. That may be wrong.

    • Thank you…but you really shouldn’t encourage my ill-humor. Misanthrope? I always considered myself just a cynical and disgruntled social philanthropist. Thank you for your humor back to me and your kind words. I am really looking forward to following you (too). My best back to you. Please keep reading and commenting. You made my day! Thanks.
