What Christmas Means to Me

What Christmas Means to Me

My procrastination is at peak performance around the holiday season. I always plan to have all Christmas shopping done early. Then I don’t even start until a week before Christmas. And let’s not even get into when those gifts get wrapped! Also, those Christmas cards I want to send friends and family never get sent. […]

The Wonder Years

The Wonder Years

My oldest, No. 2, is turning 13 this weekend. This is a moment that I have dreaded my whole life: I will officially be the father of a teenager. I have dreaded this moment for many reasons. The main reason is, as should be expected from me, the most self-centered, narcissistic one: It’s more evidence […]

We’re Being Watched!

We’re Being Watched!

My youngest son, No. 4, said the most awesome thing to me today: “Daddy, can we go running together soon?” The kid is 6. You don’t hear “Can we go running?” from 6-year-olds. It’s usually “Will you play this-or-that with me?” or “Will you color with me?” or “Can we have ice cream for dinner?” […]

‘Tis the Season to be Phlegmy

‘Tis the Season to be Phlegmy

It’s Friday night. I just finished DJing the anniversary party for the Young Professionals of Augusta. As I’m winding up the power cords for my lights, my phone rings. It’s my mother-in-law who is babysitting or kids. “Kris, I hate to bother you but No. 4 is crying hysterically and saying that he can’t breathe… […]

My Life Without Radio

My Life Without Radio

This Friday (the 14th) marks the one-year anniversary of my last day on the radio. My last day on Augusta radio was exactly one month before that. If you’re one of the few who still don’t know the story of the end of my radio career, I wrote about it in the spring. Check metrospirit.com […]

Rock the Vote!

Rock the Vote!

So this was election week and, as usual, I left the polling booth feeling dirty. I always go into the voting process feeling very optimistic, much like I felt when I first reached the voting age. I felt like I was part of something. We always hear the people encouraging us to vote: “Make a […]

Oh, The Horror! Part II: The Horror LIVES!

Oh, The Horror! Part II: The Horror LIVES!

Halloween is here and it is one of my favorite holidays of the year. Anyone who knows me knows that I only eat candy corn during the month of October. And I eat lots of it! There is an exception: If the candy corn was acquired while trick-or-treating then it can be consumed in November. […]

Oh, The Horror!

Oh, The Horror!

At the beginning of this month, I promised to include a horror movie review with each week’s column. The next week I missed my deadline. The week after, I forgot to include it. Fail. This week, I’m playing catch-up. Here are three horror movie reviews: 1. “The Grudge”: I’ve seen “The Grudge” at least 10 […]

We’re Movin’ On Up

We’re Movin’ On Up

In case you didn’t notice, last week my column was not a part of the Metro Spirit. It wasn’t omitted on purpose. It wasn’t because of content or room. I simply forgot to write it. Yep. Forgot. I forgot because I was moving. The wife and I bought our first home recently and you would […]
