Video: Owners of The Rocket, Wurst Bar, Bona Sera Cafe and Jacobsen Daniels Associates talk candidly about doing business in Ypsilanti

Given that we just crossed over into National Masturbation Month, I thought that I’d share a titillating video this evening. Unfortunately, Linette has the parental controls set in such a way that it’s impossible me for me to do that, though. So, instead, here’s video of me on the stage at Woodruff’s a few days […]

What I remember of the MarkMaynard.com 10th anniversary party

I want to thank everyone who showed up last Saturday for the 10th anniversary party at Woodruff’s. I especially want to thank those folks who I didn’t get an opportunity to speak with in person.

Just a reminder to come and see my puppet talk show on Saturday
