The Nightly Surge | February 27, 2017

I went to bed early last night so I’m just catching up… so I take it that Bonnie And Clyde are going to be in a reboot of Moonlighting filmed in LA LA Land? I hope Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd have cameos. Admit it, you were waiting…

The Nightly Surge | February 24, 2017

T.G.I… if you don’t know the final letter there, you have more problems than a CNN reporter at a President Trump press conference. It’s Friday here at “Les Nightly” as they’re calling it in France… and that means one thing…

The Nightly Surge | February 23, 2017

It’s Thursday at The Nightly. This reminds me of the “It’s morning in America” thing Ronald Reagan used for his re-election campaign… minus the election, Reagan, and trouble in Russia. Wait… okay, so minus 2 out of 3…

The Nightly Surge | February 22, 2017

Wednesday at The Surge. Mid-week. The center of the grind. The heartland of the hoopla. Ground zero of everything that is oil & gas and all that is the latest with Milo Yiannopoulos. Correction, unless Milo Yiannopoulos becomes the next CEO…

The Nightly Surge | February 21, 2017

It’s fun coming back to work after a long weekend, right? Kind of like getting your teeth drilled without Novocain or a Percocet kicker to ease the journey. But isn’t it nice to know that at the end of the day, The Nightly is here to tuck you in?…

The Nightly Surge | February 20, 2017

It’s President’s Day. And many of you have the day off. Here at The Surge, we don’t take days off! Unless we need a day off. But TK and DK know who the real commander and chief is – Oil & Gas. So, in honor of this President’s Day…

The Nightly Surge | February 16, 2017

“Unhinged.” This seems to be the word of the moment. After the end of the President’s press conference today, people said either he is unhinged, or the media is unhinged. All I know is that I want to be unhinged. Seems like it would be…

The Nightly Surge | February 15, 2017

The Day After. No, not the famed 1983 TV Movie “The Day After” about the joys of nuclear holocaust. The day after Valentine’s Day. Or as General Michael Flynn calls it, “When’s the next space shuttle off the planet?” day. Are you not…

The Nightly Surge | February 13, 2017

Monday the 13th or Friday the 13th? I can’t decide which sounds more ominous. All I know is that they both sound a heck of a lot scarier than Tuesday the 12th. Whenever Tuesday the 12th comes around, you’ll see me very at ease. How’s that for…

The Nightly Surge | February 10, 2017

As Barry Manilow, (or as my mother will sometimes call him “Barely Man Enough”) once said, “Looks like we made it!” Yes, Friday is here and we have yet to be wiped off the face of the earth… though the day is still young. What a week, huh?…

The Nightly Surge | February 9, 2017

Thursday. Say it with me. Thursday. Feels nice, doesn’t it? Everyone likes a Thursday. Thursday’s your buddy, Thursday’s your pal. You can count on Thursday. Thursday means tomorrow is Friday, Thursday means Monday is out of sight and…

The Nightly Surge | February 8, 2017

Just as it is intrinsically impossible to square a circle, so goes the difficulty in truly describing all the ins and outs of the important daily happenings all around the world of oil and gas. But that’s why TK and DK are here. We are the beacons of…

The Nightly Surge | February 7, 2017

It’s February 7th. As a student of history, I’m aware this is a date that will live in infamy! Wait. That’s December 7th. I never said I was a good student of history. February 7th does mean it’s a week until Valentine’s Day. And what better way…

The Nightly Surge | February 6, 2017

Top Of The Food Chain. That, as a proud Bostonian, is pretty much all I’ve been able to text and say today. Maybe there’s been a little singing mixed in too. Mainly the verse from “12 Days Of Christmas” about “5 Golden Rings!” with a…

The Nightly Surge | February 3, 2017

Listen… can you see that? Look… can you hear it? No matter how confusing it gets, Friday always makes everyone feel safe… unless you’re on death row scheduled to be taken out by firing squad at sunrise on Saturday, then… not so much…

The Nightly Surge | February 2, 2017

As you know by now, it’s Thursday. If you’re still not up to speed on that fact, it may be time to calm down, take a seat, and have some dip. You know, shut it down until you get back on track with reality. But here at The Nightly we live in…

The Nightly Surge | February 1, 2017

It’s the first night of February, and you know what that means… Actually it probably means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. For Supreme Court Nominee Neil Gorsuch it means intensified media scrutiny. For Tom Brady…

The Nightly Surge | January 31, 2017

As the chaotic manifesto of January gives way to the elusive temptations of February, so unfolds a revolutionary dawn of The Nightly Surge. What?? I don’t know… but it felt better than just saying: January’s over, it’s February and here’s The Nightly…

The Nightly Surge | January 30, 2017

Just as it is intrinsically impossible to square a circle, it’s just as hard to deny the magic that Monday brings… unless you’re trapped at baggage claim in an airport somewhere in America. Anything of note happen over the weekend?…
