It is things like this that make me somewhat of an internet recluse. I am somewhat of an oxymoron really. I love the internet, but value my privacy as well. You won’t find me on myspace or facebook, and I very rarely post on any internet forums. I only write these articles for Broowaha because I have to have an outlet and have found that the members of the Broowaha community are both respectful and intelligent.
I could site many more examples of some of the awful things that people have done to other people via the internet. And those are just the ones that made... (more)
BrooWaha is an interesting hobby. Writers who have been published and have agents can come here to keep in touch with the cutting edge/intelligent people who do their reading online instead of between hard covers. Writers who are unpublished can have at it, accept constructive criticism and practice writing with the hope of improving their game. Writers can check out stats which keep you humble instead of just hearing from readers who blow smoke up your ass. And you make friends... well at least you get to know people when you read what they have to say and you can track... (more)
...my own hummus and guacamole from scratch, I research new ways to make dishes, or I’m experimenting with drink mixes. So, I figured it was time to add this part of my life to my writing.
So, from this day forward, there will be a new aspect of my personality appearing in the pages of BrooWaha, and his name is Chef Phatatouille. Now, Crowbar will still write articles about the random things that interest him, while Chef Phatatouille focuses on food and drink, sharing tips and secrets to those who love to cook.
And for those who don’t like to cook, well give these recipes to ... (more)
The fat lady is gearing up for her aria.
It took me almost a whole week to find the subject for my 100th article for BrooWaHa, but after this week’s shakeup in the Democratic Party, I knew I had to address the stubbornness of Hillary Clinton.
Calls from all over the Democratic Party are coming in for Hillary to cut her losses and bow out of the race. After this week’s Indiana and North Carolina primaries Barack is picking up so-called “Super Delegates” including former 1972 Democratic Presidential Candidate George McGovern who originally...

...is how Applebee's got a kid drunk after spiking his juice accidentally. Every single time I've gone to Applebee's, my I.Q. has lowered just a bit. It doesn't surprise me at all that this happened, and I had to make fun of it.
You are one of the more vocal personalities here at Broowaha: What do you attribute that to? What would you say to somebody who is brand new to the Broo?
Believe it or not, I was painfully shy growing up. You know that person who walked across the stage at graduation, and you had no idea they existed, let alone were in the same year? That... (more)
When it comes to the ballroom dance racket, the bigger the dance instructor’s swarmy smile, the more expensive their lessons. Small print leads to large risk in dance contracts. Ballroom dance teachers, whether they are in a studio or these con artists at the recreation centers, don’t teach dance, they just teach you to take their dance lessons.
According to Jeff Allen, “Dance studios are still used as a case study to recognize deceptive trade practices. The Internet has become a common ground for sharing viewpoints. As more dancers are tuned in to the electronic age it will become... (more)
Fortune magazine has come out with its latest list of the top 500 companies and for some reason or another, BrooWaha was not on the list. Perhaps the editors at Fortune have not yet managed to comprehend the social impact of such a varied news organization as BrooWaHa. Our crack team of investigative reporters stands ready and willing to mash the keys of their computers churning out exposés that rival the fair and balanced news reporting of such established news media as The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and The San Francisco...

BrooWaha greets me thus: “Journalism needs to be rethought, thanks for joining the revolution!”And having been in the mainstream media for a longer period than I should have logically sustained, I am thrilled at the prospect of joining this revolution (sincere thanks are due, to my friend and an outstanding writer, Rachel Eagle Reiter. Coming to the revolution, what could this possibly be all about? Some crucial aspects that are redefining journalism, not just in degree, but in type, include the following:
Horizontal Communication: The traditional newsroom is part of... (more)
... now and I like to see my work published in books or magazines around the world. Maybe have the chance to sell a few screenplays. That hasn't happened and I don't know if politics are involved. Being published on the internet seems like a pretty good start and that's how I came across with this Broowaha gig. It's been pretty good to me so far. Just as long as there is no politics involved, I'll stick with it. I don't know what it can lead me to, but I hope it's a promising writing gig that I can make a decent living off of. So I can tell my job to stick it!
In 2002, I picked up boxing... (more)
...be on view through Saturday, June 7th.
I have been to this exhibition for the last three years and it is amazing. If you’re even a casual baseball fan, you’ll love the art and the stories behind it.
One of my favorite artists, Mark Ulriksen (who I interviewed for BrooWaha last year, see http://sf.broowaha.com/article.php?id=883) will be displaying his work. Many other very well-known local San Francisco and Bay Area artists will have their baseball images in this world-famous exhibition.This year's theme – Building a Team – refers not just to the...
