Yearly Archives: 2018


  The hands of a clock indicate that my mornings tend toward the early side. But I’m not one of those cheery ambassadors who raves about it, like vegans, for instance. It’s either an early rise, or the forced obsolescence of my workout routine. And since I’m short and bald, I have long forbade myself from also being out of shape. So when 5:15 a.m. is introduced by the sounds of chirping birds from my […]

Expensive Nights in Cheap Heels

It has been exactly 800 days since I started DB + Partners. I know this because I Googled ‘how long has it been calculators’ and punched in the appropriate numbers. April 18 to now. No, today isn’t some major milestone. It’s an unintended irony, manifesting itself in a round number. But I did reach a milestone last week with the start of my first full-time hire, which to me is a big effing deal. Horrifying too, because if […]

Oh Yeah, Success #Hustle #Grind

Dear God – It’s me, David. I’ve been working on a new book lately and, well, a lot of it is about sex. Not like a smutty romance novel, but sex as a theme.

By David Berry: I don’t understand America in 2018. The  president of our great land throws his spray-tanned side of beef into a porn star for $130K of hush money, and half the country is like ‘meh.’ But then you’ve got a court session where a dad who attacks Larry Nassar – the guy with a now-confirmed 265 sexual assault victims/accusers – and what do we do? Pin him down and arrest him. “Well, you can’t just whoop a guy’s ass in […]

Let That Dad Kick Larry Nassar’s Ass and Put it ...


By David Berry: If you’re a fan of some wordplay, you’ll love today’s – I mean, toDave’s – post. It’s packed with some hot news, or rather, my interpretation of the news. It’s a new thing I’m trying for 2018, much in the way today’s college kids experiment with underage drinking and having a good ole’ fashioned knee slapper with the neo-Nazis. Sex Robots. Let’s dive right in. I don’t know where you fall on a scale of 1-to-Jeffrey Dahmer in […]

By David Berry: If you’re on the other side of your laptop with an attitude like mine, scrolling through your Facebook Newsfeed saying “let these assholes eat their Tide Pods so natural selection can finish its job,” then you’re going to find a few treats in this post. I’m not pissed off, but I’ve got a lot on my mind. Let’s call it a surplus of off-beat opinions that don’t have an outlet in my professional life or when […]

Things That Are Already on My Nerves in 2018
