Dj Dum Ditty and the Dum Ditty News

DJ Dum DItty is a creation of my imagination. Part Yankee, part Hick, part Free-Ager, DJ Dum Ditty takes the cue to view the news in a slightly different kinda way. Part fact, part fiction, part Saturday Night Live (when it was phunny), DJ Dum Ditty attempts to infuse a wee bit of humor in this otherwise depressing and defeatist world.

DJ Dum Ditty is a bit of a procrastinator, having waited nearly 50 years for this character to emerge. Another sign of procrastination would be the fact that after 20 years, he has yet to take his lovely wife on a Honeymoon, and to that end has started a ‘change campaign’.

Simply stated, if you enjoy the current news and views, reach into your pants pocket, clear off the nightstand, or empty the ashtray in your car that is full of loose change, and whatever that amount is, kindly donate it to us, instead of Piggy Bank the sea Turtle. Kindly hop on over to GoFundMe, DJ Dum Ditty and the honeymoon fund, and donate whatever loose change you have. It can be ten cents, a quarter, forty six cents, or whatever amount you have and or are willing to give. I mean heck, I accept Dollars too! Lincolns, Hamiltons, Grants and Franklins are ALL welcome here, lol.

DJ Dum Ditty’s view of the news includes whats trending now, what happened on this date in history as well as some notable birthdays you or someone you know may share with.

We hope you enjoy these little 10 minute news snippets, (well, we try to keep somewhere around that number) and hope to eventually broadcast not only daily, but even several times a day. You can help by watching, friending and, of course, sharing. Sharing of the video, with your ten thousand closest facebook, twitter and instagram friends, and by sharing your change by going over to GoFundMe.com, DJ Dum Ditty and clicking on donate. It really is that easy.

So we hope you can spare a few minutes of your day and in exchange, we hope to give you a few laughs along the way (or at the very least a few chuckles and a guffaw – I just like that word, Guffaw) – and if so, we ask you to spare some change for my ‘Procrastination Fund’ at GoFundMe.com

In the meantime, sit back, kick back and enjoy this viewing of the Dum Ditty News, with host, DJ Dum Ditty.


Train Wreck in Slow Motion

Its taken awhile to digest and proccess everthing that has happened. I needed time to reflect. To truly understand the meaning of ‘a train wreck in slow motion’. Yet that’s exactly what it was. I had never truly understood the meaning before this. It was a saying people used for the unbelievable. But it’s really more than that.

It’s a knowing. That deep dark spot in your gut when you know something is terribly wrong, and with the alarm bells sounding off in your head. Your Spidey senses. An impending doom. With minutes remaining in the 3rd quarter, the Falcons failed to convert a drive for points, and the Patriots came to life.

An Unbelievable catch. The asuredness of the team. The never quit mentality, down they drove, and scored. And then again. And again. And then, with literally seconds remaining, the final score, The win by 1. Billechick, Brady and company did it again. #5. One for the thumb, as it were.

The Falcons, once again the brunt of the off season jokes. The chokers. The biggest blown lead, The biggest comeback in history. The Falcons on the wrong side of the highlight reel yet again.

And, oh Atlanta. Can you hear me callin? Hear me crying as I hear your tears. Feel the pain of a city in so dire a need of a win. A big Win. A superbowl win.

Yet again, we Atlantan’s can only look to next year. Again talk about the growth we made. Again mention the youth of the team and the promise they hold. The Potential. The Possibility of winning a Lombardi Trophy. Not just for the team, the organization or the owner, but for the city. The people that need it the most. The Fans. The guys that pay for new stadiums when the old one is still functional. The folks that pay these exorbitant fees to pay the players massive amounts of money to play a game, while we wittle and twittle away in our cubicles, booths and hard hats.

For the city. For the fan. For the everyday ordinary man, woman and child.

But back to the game. It was a statistical dead heat, with many giving the Falcons the edge (present company included). The Patriots have their wins, the country wanted an underdog. Needed an underdog. America was interviewing for a new team, and the Falcons were looking the part… For 20 and 3/4 games anyway.

And then …  I don’t even know what. One minute they were up by 30 some odd points, and the next the Patriots were driving for the win.

I don’t mean to take anything away from Tom and Bill, et. al. These guys are consumate pros. Never say die. They won number 5, like it or not, they ARE one of the best teams, best dynasties in history.

But oh, the Falcons ….
