Welcome to BccList.com!


If you’ve landed here – on the front page – I have to warn you of 2 things…

1) I used to blog a lot in 2008/early 2009…like multiple times per day. Then the election ended, the economy started to recover (as predicted in early 2009), I consequently got bored of blogging about nothing, and transitioned to 140 character rants on twitter.  Regardless, as of late, I apologize for the day/week/month lapse in postings.  I also apologize that I’m not blogging about anything substantive – politics and/or business – since nothing “pressing” is really going on right now.

2) Unless otherwise noted, I only post about something if I’m the first – or nearly the first – blogger to post about that “topic.”  Meaning, you’ll see some posts like Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift, Tiger Woods on Vanity Fair cover, or koala sex in the background of an Andy Roddick interview, etc.  But, don’t think, “Wow – this guy just posts everything that everybody else posts…lame.”  I’m usually on it early or I won’t waste the time with a blog entry.

Anyhoo, enjoy the blog postings below or you can use the search function in the right hand panel of the mainpage to find a specific BccList.com blog posting.

Update: Number 2 above isn’t necessarily applicable now…I’ve gotten even lazier in 2011/2012 and just post therapeutic blog postings and stuff I think is great.

Miley Cyrus “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover” on Saturday Night Live’s SNL 40

Miley Cyrus knocks Paul Simon’s 1975 hit song “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover” out of the ballpark on Saturday Night Live’s SNL 40 show…

Brendan Gibbons Rapes in 2009, Expelled from U of M 4 Years Later

The “sexual misconduct” occurred November 2009 and Gibbons was expelled December 2013. That was swift…


The truth will set you free, Brady…

Michigan coach Brady Hoke said at a Dec. 23 press conference that Gibbons didn’t travel to Tempe, Ariz., for the Dec. 28 Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl because he was dealing with a family matter at home.

Earlier, on Nov. 30, 2013, Gibbons sat out the football team’s regular-season finale against Ohio State after team officials said he suffered an undisclosed muscle injury in the week leading up to the game.

“He’s a little iffy,” Hoke said on Dec. 16. “He’s kicking a little bit. But I don’t want to over-kick him. I’ve never been a kicker, so I can’t imagine that (muscle) problem. So he’s a little iffy.”

In hindsight, I’m sure Hoke probably wishes Gibbons’ answer back in January 2012 after U of M’s Sugar Bowl victory was anything but “Coach always tells me to think about (raping) girls.”

Update 1: From August 2013 (at least someone is doing their job)…


The Business of Guns

Earlier this month, I received an email from a researcher (Michelle Cox) at OnlineMBA.com asking if I’d review a video that they recently published:The Business of Guns.

It’s a well done and thought-provoking video but there’s not much to review. Meaning, the proof is in the pudding/has been debated ad nauseam. Some may be “shocked” by my stance regarding gun control — I’ve been planning to post something since Aurora — but, the bottom line is we need to take our country back (to sound like a Tea Bagger) from the gun industry.

Zimmerman Found Not Guilty

So begins the precedent that people can follow/scare unarmed people all over gated communities for no reason at all and then shoot them dead when there is retaliation of any sort.


That, or, The Trayvon Martin Foundation can attempt to reform our shitty laws and judicial system. RIP kid — you had no shot.

Bottom line: You can’t do something unlawful and claim self defense. In Florida, scaring somebody is considered assault. Assault is unlawful. That said, Zimmerman couldn’t claim self defense.

For some reason, the prosecution didn’t do their job explaining this to the jury. It’s a sad day — again — for our judicial system.

Two NEW Maps of the George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin Chase

Back in 2012, I posted these 2 maps hypothesizing George Zimmerman’s pursuit of Trayvon Martin (including timing from Zimmerman’s call to police)…


A month or so ago, I received an email (not from a bcclist commenter) asking if I considered the option that Zimmerman arrived at Retreat View Circle and headed south (instead of walking back west towards the T).

While I originally suggested Trayvon may have taken this route home, I never drew out a variation of Zimmerman pursuing in such a manner. So, there are 2 new maps below — the 1st suggests Trayvon reached home via the inner path and the 2nd suggests he took Retreat View Circle.

Map 3.1 from 6/27/2013…


Map 3.2 from 6/27/2013…


Why are these 2 maps (and this one) so intriguing?

  • At least 2 witnesses have stated they saw shadows running from south to north before the scuffle began and the shot was fired.
  • Zimmerman has 2+ minutes to account for from when his call ended with police to when the scuffle with Trayvon Martin began. Any of the maps depicting a south to north chase account for this gap in time (since it would have taken time for Zimmerman to get from north to south on Retreat View Circle).
  • Brandy Green – Tracy Martin’s girlfriend – stated the day after the murder that Trayvon was sitting on her porch and then somebody shot him up by the T.

Note: The above is a one off blog posting during George Zimmerman’s trial. This BccList.com forum posting — see the comment section here — is where the conversation is continuing.
