Big Dave’s Big Thoughts


Contest Entry Hall Of Fame

Sometimes all it takes is a little dose of honesty. Right now, you can win a trip to see Blake Shelton next week, just for saying something nice about your sweetie at This morning, I was sifting through the entries, and I found one that was so honest, that […]


Unless you can live for a week out of only what you can squeeze into a carry on bag and “personal item” that are allowed on planes, you’ll eventually have to pony up some cash to check your bags. Fees vary, but can easily creep into the hundreds if you’re […]


I Got Hit By A Truck

On my 18th birthday, I took delivery of my first non-VW. In fact, every time I’ve owned a non-VW, the universe has had something to say about it. A few years after the escapade that you’re about to read, I had a Chevy Beretta, and it got broken into. My […]

You’ll Probably Judge Me For This, But I Still Dig It

I watched this video and got goosebumps, the hair on my neck stood up, and in my head I shouted “THAT’S MY JAM!!!” Then I realized I was getting  pumped and shouting about a Taylor Swift concert. BUT… she brought out Alanis! They did “You Oughta Know!” She didn’t censor […]

He’s Still Blake, He’s Just Having One Of Those Weeks

Brad Paisley: “I come in here, I’m not drunk, so I think that’ll be a change for the show.” Blake Shelton: “You’re gonna have to do something about that.” Blake Shelton is Blake Shelton, no matter what the circumstances. Engaging, funny, but a little lighter on the left ring finger […]

Video Game Skills Pay Off In Real Life… Sometimes
