James Keliher at U2 in San Diego

Posted on November 21, 2017

https://vimeo.com/243931038 I went to see U2 in San Diego, and as expected it was utterly fantastic. There are few things better, in the entire world of things, than the first couple minutes of "Where The Streets Have No Name" and my Irish brethren didn't disappoint here. If I could relive this moment once a month, I'd be happy, but this video will have to suffice. Had a great time down in San Diego with friends. We figured if we were ...

James Keliher Science For The Win

Posted on April 23, 2017

So yesterday I, James Keliher, actually had to go out and march in support of science. Essential, yet so incredibly absurd that it was even necessary - but that's what happens when America elects its most ignorant and self-serving President in its history. With all the rumored proposed cuts in science funding in the upcoming budget, not to mention all the denial of scientific fact - from the non-dangers of vaccines, to the real dangers of ...

The Science of Bikinis by James Keliher

Posted on October 17, 2016

I think many of us can agree that the bikini is one of history's greatest inventions - right up there with those dedicated urinals in porta potties, the color coquelicot and of course the advent or sarcasm. Anyway, seventy years ago, Louis Rénard created the bathing sensation that ultimately the Vatican would declare as sinful. They can declare it whatever they want, but I declare it AWESOME! It spent my summer around a shitload of bikinis ...

Knew About The Cats – Part 3

Posted on March 12, 2016

I was sitting with my friend Jessica as I watched Leah tell her tale. Jess and I met the second week of school when she approached me and asked what I was always writing during class. I told her about my journal thing, and everything just blossomed from there. To use a popular junior high term, I’d have to say that Jess and I were best friends, which was unusual because I’d never had a female best friend before. Her gender didn’t seem to ...

Knew About The Cats – Part 2

Posted on March 9, 2016

I met her at a party, Leah that is, not my therapist. Through my research at school, I learned that eighty per cent of all college relationships begin within twenty feet of a keg. Thus, our meeting was not a particularly novel experience. What did strike me as odd on that first night back in December of 1986, was that she was talking about her mother’s cats. In itself that wasn’t quite what I would call divergent thinking, yet on the Saturday night before exam week of our freshman year when people were traditionally talking about finals, Caribbean vacations, and Christmas wish lists, such feline subjects seemed slightly off base. Maybe that’s why I first fell for her—she would talk about anything, anywhere, no matter how out of place or time. I envied that immensely.

Knew About The Cats – Part 1

Posted on February 28, 2016

I knew about the cats from the beginning. In fact when I first was introduced to her she was talking about those damn cats. Although I wasn’t into pets myself, I had little problem with other people devoting so much of their time and money to other, non-human, living beings.

Starbucks Trickery

Posted on February 23, 2016

There's been no greater scam perpetrated on the world in the past fifteen years than the ascension of Starbucks and the rise of the $6 coffee. I've never been much of a coffee drinker, but I can see what's happening, and know it's utterly absurd. This is before I factor in all those Frappuccinos with their mountains of sugar in each drink. It's silly really. That said, you gotta hand it to Starbucks for simplifying the whole process. As one ...

Watching TV Sunday Night

So yeah, I watch TV on Sunday nights. Lots of TV on Sunday nights. It's one great show after another, and were it not for DVRs and the plethora of network apps on my AppleTV. While I, like the rest of America wait for the return of The Walking Dead (next week!) and Game of Thrones (April…) I'm temporarily content watching The Good Wife, Shameless and Billions - but there's nothing I'm more jazzed for than 11-22-63 on Hulu. Always been a ...
