Let's Get Down to Business!

Greeting folks! Real Elvis won't be with you today, but Godwhacker is here to love you tender. I don't like Mondays. Sometimes I want to shoot the whole day down. But that's no reason to wallow in unproductivity. The weekend is gone, and we can't get it back. But the next one is just 5 short days away! My advice to you this morning is to be here now. 

Perhaps the Dalai Lama said it best.

“Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
Don't be that person! Live here and live now. All it takes is 10 mindful minutes.


  1. I like the video you posted, Godwhacker. Live in the now!!

  2. Is this a law blog anymore?

  3. Yes, it's a law blog. But then, silly me, lawyers never do feel stress, do they?

  4. Worst post on this blog ever.

  5. @12:45

    Something tells me this is the post you really need.

  6. Great post GW. Don't listen to the cranks.

  7. Dude, I don't have 10 minutes to listen to your new age mumbo jumbo....i would rather pick my Jose in thus meeting I am in. For you, I will make an exception and stick my finger in my will be as equally calming, but will smell better than you new age "friends."

  8. Touch screen phine...ease e,cuse typos.

  9. Why stop with a finger?

    The mind is an impressive piece of technology but it doesn't come with an owner's manual. As a young man I experimented with drugs that could take you to amazing places (without leaving the house). As a slightly older man I learned to access those places using alternative methods and meditation is one of them.

    It is a way of both relaxing the mind and focusing the mind at the same time. The benefits are profound. There is no monetary cost. That's not hocus pocus or mumbo jumbo. It's cutting edge modern science.


  11. I like the post, and I listened to the video as I reviewed my bills on a file and all the .2s I spent receiving and reviewing various correspondence from opposing counsel requesting that I, in good faith, assist him in placing his own finger up his butt and things of that nature. I can surely use a 10 minute break now and again to reground myself. So, keep it up, but lets not get too Tom Cruise-y now space ace.

  12. Now Scientology, that's some BS.

My Kind of Federal Judge!

Sure we have Scott Rothstein and his lovely Tom James clothier Romina Sifuentes, but Louisiana has ED LA judge G. Thomas Porteous Jr.:
A federal judge from Louisiana who had run up big gambling debts routinely solicited money and gifts from lawyers with cases before his court, Congressional investigators said Tuesday as the House opened impeachment hearings in the judge’s case. The judge, G. Thomas Porteous Jr. of Federal District Court, had more than $150,000 in credit card debt by 2000, mostly for cash advances spent in casinos, investigators said. Judge Porteous’s requests for cash became so frequent that one New Orleans lawyer said he started trying to dodge the judge.“He began to use excuses that he needed it for tuition, he needed it for living expenses,” the lawyer, Robert Creely, told a House Judiciary Committee task force. “I would avoid him until I couldn’t avoid him anymore.”
Mr. Creely said he and his law partner, Jacob Amato, gave Judge Porteous an estimated $20,000 o…

Honoring Richard C. Seavey

I drank a shit-ton of bourbon last night. Enough to float a battleship.

My head hurts. But not as much as my heart.

We lost another lawyer over the weekend. Not someone who will receive facebook accolades and other public claims of friendship and statements that he shaped and changed lives and careers. Just a guy who did the best he could with what he had. Every day. And he did very, very well to be the best person he could be. 
Richard Seavey was a profoundly private person. In his 49 years, he walked through more than his share of trials and tribulations, mostly asking for no help, leaning on no one. 

Richard was a fantastic lawyer. He could try a case. He could "litigate" a case. He could mediate and settle a case. He was nuanced. He bent but never broke. The blustery Miami lawyer never scared him. To the contrary, he found humor in it, studying it like a science project. Richard never got too high or too low. He was good at lawyering, but you got the f…
