ICYMI: Park Joint

I originally posted this on the site six months ago, but I did some house cleaning on the blog and had to re-post it.  Please excuse any dated references. My buddy Tyson texted me the other day with a question: What’s your most underrated album of all-time?  Damn good question, Ty.  Worthy of another ICYMI […]

ICYMI: Broken Hearts

I originally posted this on the site six months ago, but I did some house cleaning on the blog and had to re-post it.  Please excuse any dated references. My buddy Tyson just texted me a few weeks ago to tell me that Public Enemy’s It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back […]

ICYMI: Anywhere

Snoop Dogg’s “Gin and Juice” is far from my favorite, yet somehow no song captures the fun times I had in the 90’s quite like it.  Every time Snoop utters the phrase, “With so much drama in the LBC…” I’m immediately taken on a trip down memory lane.  I’m on Third Street in the MQT […]

Devil’s Pie

My Gun is On the Ground

My buddy Tyson paged me the other day and when I found a pay phone and called him back he said, “What’s up with the blog?  You said there would be more this year, but I haven’t seen anything in a while.”  He’s right.  We depart for Siren Best Western four weeks from today and […]

Tews and Pac

Last Friday was my boy Tews’s birthday.  I forget a lot of things, but for some reason one of the few things I do usually remember is to text my boy to wish him a happy birthday.  It’s weird now that we’re in our 40’s.  What do you say to someone turning 42?  “Happy birthday! […]

THIS IS AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!

Frequent readers of the blog will want to sit down for this one.  As you all know, the unofficial sponsor of the mookiefantana.com deer hunting blog has always been Kwik Trip.  Sponsor is probably not the appropriate word.  Inspiration?  Muse?  Delicious snack and satisfying beverage provider?  I always thought sponsor sounded good, but it’s not […]
