Welcome to The Bob Zima Blog

20161012_133937Hello Everyone and Welcome to The Grumpy Gator Cafe’. I am your resident lunatic, lover and poet at the cafe’ and the home for Marauder Radio, a pirate radio show celebrating Mental Wellness Thru The Anarchy of Healing.

Marauder Radio is a roller-coaster ride of mental health and healing ideas, a treasure trove of inspirational rants and witty lampooning of the psychological and religious industries in ‘Merica. My HOOYA (Head Out Of Your Ass) humor therapy encourages all to engage in a cranium-rectum extraction then get busy having fun and enjoying all that life has to offer.

I am a middle-aged, over-educated, under-employed, over-weight, white-guy who believes that when he tries less his life has more to offer and is much more fun.

I am healing each and every day from:

  • alcohol and drug addiction,
  • bankruptcy and homelessness,
  • plenty of toxic relationship,
  • dumb-ass career decisions and
  • the death of two of children.
