Entrepreneur Addiction

Big Red Car here. Please accept my apology for being MIA for the last two weeks. No excuse. To those who sent the death threats, I looked up your TCP/IP addresses and I will be coming to see you shortly.

No weather report today but the azaleas are in full bloom. Wow!

So The Boss is talking to a couple of his favorite CEOs and they get on the subject of addiction.

Flying Cars @ SXSW

Big Red Car here. Hey, SXSW has become a monster. Now they’re hawking flying cars!

The Big Red Car wants some of that action. Look at this — available in two years and already flying.

You have to love a flying car but why can’t it be a Big Red Car? Come on, y’all, let’s make it a Big Red Car? Can I get an AMEN?

But, hey, what the Hell do I really know anyway? I’m just a Big Red Car.

Cafe Amelie, New Orleans is Unfair to Tourists

Big Red Car here. I didn’t get to go to New Orleans for the wedding and I’m pissed off.

New Orleans is one of those perfect getaway places. The kind of place a Big Red Car should be able to take a road trip to!

So, now we turn to Cafe Amelie. Struggle with the pronunciation for a few minutes and then think of “Emily” with an “A”. Got it? Continue reading

The Physics of Failure

Big Red Car here. Wow, is the weather in the ATX spectacular!

We’ve got the start of 300,000 folks in town for SXSW (South By Southwest) and the weather is for you visitors. Move here, please.

Get some TexMex at Guero’s Matt’s El Rancho, Chuy’s, Santa Rita and get some BBQ at Green Mesquite. Don’t even think about Franklin BBQ. You’re not locals, y’all. Painful truth. But, you could be by this time next year.

Pro tip: Never, ever try the salsa until your drinks come. You will remember this when your mouth is on fire. This is Texas.

Houston, We’ve Got a Problem — Iran is Getting a Bomb!

Big Red Car here. Bright, sunny and crisp today. This is what we call winter in the ATX. We like winter — all three days of it. 70F on Sunday.

So, the administration has begun to “leak” out that the Iran deal is going to end up with Iran getting an invite to the nuclear bomb club. Oh boy!

The problem is this — we promised the Israelis, the world, the American people this would NOT happen. Continue reading

Entrepreneurial Privilege — Celebrate It But Medicate It

Big Red Car here. It is freakin’ cold in the ATX. It is 32F and it feels like 25F. We are hot house Texas tomatoes. We are not this tuff. Please, God, deliver us from this evil.

Hell, ain’t nothing for a climber. Brrrrr!

So The Boss hears a damn good sermon at church on Sunday that gets him thinking about several subjects. One of them is the privilege y’all receive as entrepreneurs. Let’s talk about it. Continue reading

Perception is Everything

 Big Red Car here. So, we had the “violent extremism” summit at the White House. There was a lot of photo ops. There was even the announcement of the appointment of a CZAR to combat ISIS and other various shitheads on social media. That is going to scare the crap out of beheaders, right?

What we have a is a fundamental problem. It is called perception. Continue reading
