Each Thursday night on Just a Bit Outside, we do a little something called “4TheFellaz”. Each WEDNESDAY night however, I’m going to offer forth a little bonus relationship advice to get myself in the zone and whet your appetite for more gems.
Top 5 Tuesday: Reality Check
Every Tuesday, we here at Just a Bit Outside roll out a Top Five list for your listening (and reading) pleasure. Because we use all of our creativity juice on-air, we call this "Top Five Tuesday." This week, we covered the Top 5 Professions That The Employees Take Way Too Seriously.
Mall Santa Confidential
One of the only "great" holiday movies of the past decade was the Billy Bob Thornton classic "Bad Santa."
Week 13 NFL Picks
Ahh the pickings blog. A staple of every sports talk host’s website in America. How do my picks differ from everyone else’s? Well, I’m probably the only host who’ll outright tell you that most of these picks will be wholly incorrect!

The Santa Problem
I believed in Santa Claus for a very long time. Not "18 years old, probablevirgin" long, but I was around 11 years old when I finally accepted the harsh reality. Admittedly, my belief was rekindled at around age 23, when I started realizing the dichotomy between how much parents made and how much I used to recieve. However, this blog is not about *MY* personal belief in Santa. Its about
Despite what their neighbors may tell you, there ARE warning signs that a person may be a sociopath. Cruetly to animals, lack of empathy, love of the show "Mad About You"...all of these things can be warning alarms that someone might end up with a family in their freezer.

In the past few years, it appears that we've begun Christmas Overdrive in August, but that is another debate for another day. No no, this blog is about the enduring debate that has raged on from the beginning of time: To carol or not to carol?
RIP My Faith in Humanity 1986-2011
Even if you live under a rock (its time to stop disrespecting our below surface dwelling brethren), you know this Friday was BLACK FRIDAY!!! What you also know is that this year, many major stores technically opened Thanksgiving Night (no one considers midnight the start of the next morning. So stop condescendingly correcting people to that end.) What you may not know is that on Thanksgiving Nigh
Nothing Says Christmas Like…A Stegosaurus?!?
Last weekend, I saddled up and went to hardware and department stores to find the perfect set of Christmas decorations. I've always been a firm believer in making your house stand out around the holidays. I've always used my parents hand-me-down decorations and in recent years, they haven't been up to snuff.

Every year around this time, families gather together from far and wide to join hands at the table and give thanks for all of the good things in their lives. Its beautiful, its time-honored, and it makes me sick. I'm not saying there's NOTHING I'm thankful for (I'm a big fan of WWE Classics On Demand!), but there are FAR more things I'm not thankful for. And its time to share them with you! Read
