ballroom dancer, bare knuckle pugilist…… and active nudist……(just kidding about the “active nudist”)


I am “the Common Man”. No better than most, no worse than some. This blog is my overly caffeinated (I’m on my 3rd “grande” cup of “Pike’s Place” now) observations and opinions on music, art, food, wine, beer, motorcycles, cars, culture, values, trends, religion, politics, the state of our world in general and this nation I love in particular from my perch in the window of Starbuck’s on State Street in the lovely historic former farming community, established by William Penn in 1684, of Newtown, Pennsylvania.

It is my hope that you will find this blog thoughtful, insightful, educational, entertaining, sometimes controversial, sometimes brawl inducing, in order to increase readership to the point where I become obscenely wealthy……or to where I achieve the revenues to raise my 10 year old son, continue to play with motorcycles and keep my fathers shop open and keep me in the proper supplies so that I may continue to imbibe my “Dave Blount Signature Dirty Martini’s” on a weekly basis……
