As children, very few of us wanted to eat our vegetables. I would try to convince my mom “my vegetable shelf (of my stomach) is full, but my dessert shelf is empty.” That never worked, but many of us still do our best to rationalize late night tacos at the expense of the more responsible 6pm veggie stir-fry. Thankfully Erk has tended to both our sweet tooth and well-being on the Fly Commons-produced Junk Food & Vegetables.


What is healthy in the context of an Erk Tha Jerk project? Honesty, introspection, and vulnerability to go along with wordplay, humor, chauvinistic exploits, and an enduring sense of cool. To quote Mary Poppins, it takes a “spoonfull of sugar to make the medicine go down.”


The dark probing sonics of Junk Food & Vegetables (<- Buy here) are handled 100% by Fly Commons and form the perfect backdrop for Erk’s raspy explorations of lust, technology, and life. Be sure to seek out my current favorites – “Nobody’s Watching” and “High Definition”– and watch the video for “White Widow” below.

Budget Honeymoon Destinations


For most people, a honeymoon is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Many couples love to brag about exotic honeymoon destinations in Europe, the tropics and other faraway places, but some newlyweds either cannot afford such a journey or simply prefer to use the money for other expenses. Several destinations are ideal for budget-conscious couples to celebrate their love and marriage.

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

One of the South’s most popular beachfront resort towns, Myrtle beach offers virtually limitless fun and myriad attractions targeted at couples and newlyweds at a significantly reduced price. You can splurge on fresh Atlantic seafood at one of the numerous beachside grills. Take advantage of the eastern exposure to catch a gorgeous ocean sunrise. For couples truly on a budget crunch, agree to tolerate a sales pitch at one of the numerous timeshare outfits because the company may even agree to foot the lodging expenses.



Gatlinburg, Tennessee

One of the most popular tourist destinations in all of Appalachia, Gatlinburg is home to dozens of name-brand attractions, the largest commercial aquarium in the land and a distinct (and resilient) hillbilly culture. Gatlinburg offers unique leather goods, candies, fudge and wood products. While the resort town can be somewhat expensive when the leaves are changing (especially in September and October), the summer months are relatively budget-friendly, and the winter months—especially January and February—are downright cheap. For couples into physical activity, check out the ski resort at the top of the mountain, then come back to the hotel to relax in front of a romantic fireplace.

The Bahamas

A veritable tropical paradise, the islands of The Bahamas are close enough to the American mainland for cruise operators to offer very budget-friendly fares. For as little as $349 per person (even less in some cases), newlyweds can depart from a Florida cruise terminal like Miami or Port Canaveral on a three-day cruise to Freeport, Nassau, or any of the other islands claimed by The Bahamas. The all-inclusive cruise helps allay some budget concerns, and goods on the island (especially inland and away from the port-side tourist traps) are modestly priced. If enough money is left after the wedding, consider upgrading to a balcony room or suite for an enhanced cruise experience.


Latin & South American Cruises

Like the Bahamas, newlyweds willing to spend only a little extra can find cruises to Belize, Mexico, Honduras and many other Latin and South American countries for well under $1,000 per person. Again, while the price tag may look steep at first, the all-inclusive cruise helps offset expenses and keep the honeymoon well within a modest budget. Check out the amazing snorkeling and underwater SCUBA adventures available. And be sure to haggle with local retailers to receive the best prices on goods and services.

Liberals’ Latest Talking Point: But Can Republicans Govern?

Liberals’ Latest Talking Point: But Can Republicans Govern?

Listening to Charlie Rose on my way home the other night I kept hearing the same thing over and over from the “panel” members (corrupt Liberal journolists):

Democrats have been trying many alternate stories on for size since they had their ass handed to them by the voters:

  • The vote was rigged.
  • It was the mid-terms so they don’t count.
  • Whites are racist against Obama.
  • Voters were deluded by the Koch brothers’ advertisements.
  • Democrats abandoned Obama and were punished.

In short… they are deluded.

Liberals’ Latest Talking Point: But Can Republicans Govern?


But this delusion hasn’t stopped them from now trying to shift the anus onto the GOP… can they govern?

Were they saying the same thing as Harry Reid’s Senate never sent one budget to the White House?

Or how nothing got done there?

Not that I remember.

But now it’s up the Republicans to govern.

The GOP doesn’t have enough votes to override a presidential veto and any bills they do send to Obama’s desk he will simply cast them aside while making up excuses.

Liberals’ Latest Talking Point: But Can Republicans Govern?

However Republicans do need to act responsibly. Trying to impeach Obama is a bad idea. Expending too much political capital to fully repeal Obamacare is a waste of time. Republicans need to defund anything Obama attempts to do regarding Executive Orders and immigration and they need to send specific bills to his desk repealing certain aspects of Obamacare (like the medical device tax).

Obama is looking to provoke Republicans and make his weaknesses look like his strengths.

The GOP can simply sidestep him and nullify the threat.

It’s Not Too Late for Conservatives to Support Gay Marriage

Gay marriage is a reality now due to the recent Supreme Court Ruling. Conservatives should have gotten behind gay marriage long ago, mainly because it would have been the right thing to do but, also, because marriage and raising children are generally two activities that make a person conservative. After all, if you have a spouse, a child, and bills to pay you are going to be more concerned with how the Government is treating you, your family, and your money.

Without the official Government sanction of “marriage” these people are still going to get romantically involved, will still live together, and still raise children. But the difference will be they won’t vote Republican.

How is telling someone they can’t own a gun because someone might get shot any different from telling someone they can’t get married because some people will be offended?

If you believe that God is against gay marriage then don’t be gay and get married. If someone else wants to do that then this is between them and their god.

It is not Government’s job to apply one set of values.

Freedom is freedom and Conservatives shouldn’t step in the way of two consenting adults.

Now, they can’t. But the longer they cling to the notion that the horses can be caught and the barn door closed again the longer they will continue to look like fools.
